"Once his wings got strong enough and he started to fly within the crate, we took him outside and placed him in our small fruit trees for short periods. His parents spotted him immediately and circled down one day to get him. We saw him often on the property being fed and cared for by his parents along with a sister/brother. He has a mate and is still on the property. He most likely fell out of the nest when young during a windstorm. The tree was so high we had no way to safely put him back."

“Can I touch your butt” in Elvish.

This is so useful

No, this is not “Can I touch your butt” in Elvish. This is “Can I touch your butt?” in English, transcribed using the letters of the Elvish alphabet. There is a difference. 
In Elvish, the letters of the alphabet correspond to sounds, not to words. The above text spells it out using one symbol to represent one letter of the original English, which is incorrect:
c-a-n  i  t-o-u-c-h  y-o-u-r  b-u-t-t
If you really want to spell out an English phrase using the Elvish alphabet, you would do so phonetically, which would basically equate to one symbol per phoneme (sound):
c-a-n  a-i  t-u-ch  y-o-r  b-u-t
If you actually wanted to write “Can I touch your butt?” in Elvish, one (very rough) translation would be:

Annog nin daf pladan tele ci?

Which, in Sindarin Elvish, roughly translates to, “Would you give me permission to touch your rear?”
Written in tengwar (the Elvish alphabet), it would look like this:

Sorry for the blurry quality.

damn, the lotr fandom doesnt fuck around

wow

not to mention LOOK HOW POLITE THIS WAS 
LIKE GOOD LORD 
OLDEST FANDOMS REALLY ARE POLITEST 

fuckin nerds

oh my godddddd there is a new swedish reality tv show where they are tracking down internet trolls and confronting them about the death threats they’ve sent to people, since it’s actually illegal.

watching them try to explain how it’s not them is the best entertainment i’ve ever seen.

this episode ended with them fining him 5000 SEK to be paid to the victim!

guess what America should do

What is this show called I need it in my life

Dear lord

This reminds me of the theory that allergies are a side effect of anti-parasite adaptations. Apparently, so is menstruation - and the parasite is the fetus.

Reblog for history channel

History.

History channel I love you anyways

oh wow they’re all true…

I’m appalled the History channel one didn’t mention aliens anywhere. Aliens or Nostradamus. 

and PBS is ur teacher 

Food network is your ‘foodie’ trend-hopping cousin with a not-so-secret trashy diner/food truck fixation. Cooking channel is their older sibling who can actually cook, but is kind of insufferable to be around and a bit of an alcoholic.

And The Hub is the drug dealer to all those desperate Bronies and TF-fans who keep complaining that earlier strains of their stuff were better but keep buying.

MTV used to be your concert-going buddy and big insight into music several decades ago but she decided that gossiping about everyone is more fun. Occasionally you go to concerts with her but she just talks about what the neighbors did during the event.

FAKE GEEK GUYS: A MESSAGE TO MEN ABOUT SEXUAL HARASSMENT
By Andy Khouri
“I think this woman is wrong about something on the Internet. Clearly my best course of action is to threaten her with rape.”
That’s crazy talk, right? So why does it happen all the time?
Honest question, dudes.
That women are harassed online is not news. That women in comics and the broader fandom cultures are harassed online is not news. That these women are routinely transmitted anonymous messages describing graphic sexual violence perpetrated upon them for transgressions as grave as not liking a thing… that is actually news to me, and it’s probably news to a lot of you guys reading this.
So what do we do about it?
This.

A+, Andy Khouri.

Do you still need more proof of rape culture?

As Noam Chomsky once pointed out for Z Magazine, old media types from the institutional bodies like American Enterprise Institute tend to regurgitate the same ideas with a reliability that is equally impressive and infuriating. While assuring the public that rape is a terrible crime, writers like Caroline Kitchens and Heather McDonald of right-wing think tank The Manhattan Institute try to claim that feminists have blown this whole rape culture thing way out of proportion.

Apparently, many women disagree. On Tuesday there were more than 1 million responses on the #RapeCultureIsWhen hashtag started by a frustrated Zerlina Maxwell in response to these right-wing narratives.
