A bit of context on this next series of photos: Dharamshala, India is where the exiled government of Tibet resides. Led by the Dalai Lama, nearly 100,000 Tibetan refugees live in this northern Indian city, where they seek to maintain their traditions and culture in exile. The long journey from Tibet to India includes a grueling 28 day walk through the Himalayan mountains. Many of the refugees make this trek as children, sent by their parents in hopes of studying their language and religion in freedom. In conclusion, here’s a young Tibetan monk playing with a kitten.

We’ve all heard of Betty Boop. But how many of you knew that she was based off of a BLACK woman.

Yes Betty Boop was based off of Ms.Esther Jones known by her stage name “Baby Esther”. She was an African-American singer and entertainer of the 1920’s. Her singing trademark was “Boop oop da doop” hence the name Betty Boop! She performed regularly at the cotton club in Harlem,New York.

This is partly true. But the woman above is NOT Esther Jones. She’s a model who was photographed in 2008. SOURCE.

I like how the original title for The Fault in Our Stars is all poetic and then the Norwegians just translated it to “fuck destiny” and I think that’s beautiful

Aw man, I thought for sure this had to be bullshit but nope

Why is it always Norway

Norway, a nation where you can put the word “fuck” on the cover of a young adult novel.

"I want to be an engineer."
"What advice would you give other engineers?"
"If you build a house that collapses, you’re going to get arrested. So you need to keep using the pendulum to make sure that everything is straight. Also, your cement mix has to be strong. You also need to be careful with the builders that you hire, or they will steal the cement from you.”
"What sort of building would you build?"
"A factory that makes new books, so that everyone can have new books for school. All of my books are old and have writing in them."

(Entebbe, Uganda)

New books. My heart.

Why the Hell Does ‘Modern Family’ Keep Winning the Best Comedy Emmy? By Jason Bailey

All this talk of our current “Silver Age” of television is right on, and if the Best Drama winners haven’t encompassed quite as much of that excellence, there’s still been at least a smidge of variety to them — during Modern Family’s uninterrupted five-year streak, the Drama statue has gone to Mad Men, Breaking Bad, and Homeland (first season, so that’s still a good call!). Now, take a deep breath and take in the shows that have gone un-awarded in Best Comedy during that period: Orange is the New Black, Louie, Veep, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Girls, Parks and Recreation, Nurse Jackie, andSilicon Valley. (I’m fine with The Big Bang Theory not winning anything.) Not even nominated, in the same period: CommunityEnlightened, New GirlBrooklyn Nine-Nine, Trophy WifeIt’s Always Sunny in PhiladelphiaArcher, Raising Hope, and Party Down.
