Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part II)
The St Louis County Council meeting was a fiery afar, as residents from across the county demanded Darren Wilson’s arrest, answers for Mike Brown’s death, and expressed frustration at their own police force being turned on them like they were enemies of the state. #staywoke #farfromover
A school in Brazil had all its students protesting after a transgender girl got reprimanded after changing into a female uniform. All the students, including the boys, wore a skirt to school on September 1st in a way to show support to the girl, who still can’t wear her female uniform but the school says that they’re “reviewing the code of conduct.”
Don’t be scared. I’m a shapeshifter too!
Marvel Anti-Bullying variants for November
Hello all! I’ve gotten quite a few people askin how I went about putting together my head for a recent costume I did at Anime Iowa 2014, so I figured I’d make a tutorial for it! More under the cut!
I THINK I FIGURED OUT THE BABY THING FOR SOUL SOCIETY
Okay so when you think about it, soul dies, gets sent to Rukongai, either dies again naturally to get reincarnated, or becomes a shinigami and lives for however long and still, dies and gets reincarnated unless they’re eaten by hollows.
Okay so, Byakuya is Soujin’s actual blood related son, so having children IS possible. But then I was thinking about it cause I was like, wouldn’t there be more births especially in Rukongai if they could just have babies.
But okay, its a NEW soul, so then I was thinking about okay then one or both of the parents HAVE to have high spiritual pressure in order to create a new soul, cause they’re not just creating a baby, they’re forming a new soul.
So that would explain the lack of kids being born because the only people who would be able to do that are high ranking officers, which would explain why Hisana never had children (aside from her illness, she clearly had very low spiritual pressure and wouldn’t have been able to form a new soul).
It’s probably not the only way souls are created, but I think it’s one way.

Don’t Hit MEwhat’s happenin in korea
You want to know what’s happening? Korea’s education system is literally the most rotten piece of shit to ever exist.
Let me explain the context of the poster on the left.
The average time a kid spends in school in the US is 900 to 1000 hours per year, spread between 175-180 days (x)
In 2007 there were mass student protests in Netherlands because they increased the hours spent in school to 1040 hours per year, or 8 hours a day, 130 days a year. (x)
Korean high schools, on the other hand, enact a 3150 policy, 225 days of school with 14 hours a day, or from 8 am to 10 pm (x)
Also due to the private education sector of hagwons and the fierce competition of Korean high schools, basically after school kids go to hagwons, or personal academies, till 2, 3 in the morning, fit in maybe 4, 5 hours of sleep and go back to school. (x)
It was only in 2012 that schools went from having classes on Saturday excluding the first and third Saturday, and it was only in 2007 when they changed from having class every Saturday. (x)
This system is literally the epitome of the factory schooling system which comes as a result of a capitalistic schooling system and it works kids too hard which is one of the reasons Korean school kids are some of the unhappiest of pretty much any OECD country. (x)
For the photo on the right, physical punishment is not fully banned in Korea.
Since 2011, Seoul, Gyunggido, Gangwondo, and Julla Bukdo have banned the use of direct physical punishment, or basically hitting kids with either tools or physically with their body. That being said that’s basically only about half of South Korea.
Also, indirect physical punishment such as making kids to planks, make them kneel with their hands up, making them run laps, or of the sort is still fully acceptable in all Korean schools. (x)
Anybody who’s a Korean in a Korean school right now already has experience with getting beat by a teacher and some kids still have to deal with physical punishment by teachers.
