Bad Trouble over the Weekend

I am trying here to say something
about the despised, the defeated,
the alienated.
About death and disaster.
About the wounded, the crippled,
the helpless, the rootless,
the dislocated.
About duress and trouble.
About finality.
About the last ditch.

Astronomers have long pondered the origins of enormous elliptical galaxies in the young Universe. An object 11 billion light-years away spotted by the Herschel mission may help unravel the mystery. 
Two massive spiral galaxies merged to create a giant elliptical galaxy, which were previously believed to form through the absorption of dwarf galaxies over time.

"honne [on-eh]"

(noun) An untranslatable Japanese word, describing a privately held belief, you would never express publicly. Honne may be contrary to what is expected by society or what is required according to one’s position and circumstances, and they are often kept hidden, except with one’s closest friends.

  • Japanese culture places great stress on distinguishing the honne, one’s genuine feelings, from the tatemae, what one must say publicly.

papersandtrees said: Hey, I just saw your description and you used the word ''faggot'' to identify yourself. As you probably know this word is widely used in a derrogative way and it is widely rejected by lgbt and allies. I'm interested in knowing what are your thoughts/philosophy of using this word like you do. Great tumblr by the way :)
