FINALLY A CELEBRITY WHO SAYS THE REAL REASON.
In an interview where someone told her that she looked beautiful she said: “I was always beautiful, now I’m just thin.”
She is actually Jesus reincarnated.

I’ve just seen this on facebook and i’m so disgusted, please signal boost this. The scum that did this need to be found."Didn’t want to post this, but I’m really beginning to think that the boys who tried to kill my son are going to get away with it.
I can’t help but feel that if I’d illegally parked I’d soon be found.
They did far more than stab him, they’ve also taken away the only bit of independence he had, which took us almost two years to prepare him for. I’m now too frightened to let him back out, and I…'m getting the fallout from that too.
The media are totally uninterested in the attempted murder of an Autistic boy, not so much as a reply to my emails to help catch these “people”. Please share, to show my amazing son that what I’ve always taught him is true, that there are consequences to actions, and that these “people” will face those consequences, and that there are still good people out there. Tweet it, share it, take a sec to show him he matters. One parent to another, please, I cannot have them get away with this, I just can’t, because their next victim may not survive.
The attackers are described as three black males, two are possibly Hispanic, aged up to 22. One had curly wet-look type hair, he was wearing a grey jumper, this is the one who actually stabbed Eamonn, The other two had very close shaved haircuts and darker clothing.
It was totally unprovoked and my son was so frightened of them that he ran away after they verbally abused him, but was chased and when he ran out of breath and had to stop, one of them stabbed him mm’s from his jugular artery, and walked off.
The attack occurred on June 4th around 7;30pm in Pimlico, which to jog your memory, was the day of the state opening of parliament.

I want to consider LoK’s ratings for a second, because I think there are some interesting trends to note.
First, Book 1 had a steady schedule, and the ratings reacted accordingly… except for a single hiccup with When Extremes Meet. Interestingly enough, the adult group reacted more negatively than the kid/teenager group did, in stark contrast with the Book 2 trends.
My guess is, the majority of Book 1’s viewer base came from kids looking for something to watch on Saturday mornings. The show got awesome ratings because it was high quality enough to draw a good chunk of those kids, but the kids weren’t deciding when to watch tv based on when the show aired — they were already there to be mined.
In contrast, the adults tuned out when they thought the show had gone on hiatus. That suggests they were scheduling time around the show, but didn’t have the information about its airing. The 600k that caught the show are probably our internet-connected crowd.
For Book 2, the entire non-internet connected adult crowd disappeared. I doubt this was a quality issue; it’s more likely that they didn’t know the show was on. And, for the ones who did know it was on, they were given a very easy way to avoid the lousy air time when Nick put the episodes up at midnight. I bet that influenced the premiere -> third episode drop off — outside of super fans, adults are probably inclined to do stuff on Friday nights.
The kid demo, of course, was all over the place. Kids can’t schedule around shows and don’t have the information to do so, even if they watch the network enough to know the show’s airing again. I’d suggest that the ratings for Peacekeepers suggests a group of around 700k who are connected enough to keep up with the show (which is, not coincidentally, only a bit lower than the general Book 3 kid ratings).
By Book 3, the adult demo stabilized almost entirely. That 400k that the show scored week after week is probably our fanbase and its periphery.
The kids were less stable, but not nearly as volatile as in Book 2. Very few people who weren’t connected even knew about the show.
It’s relevant to point out here that the “kids” group includes 12-17 year olds who Nick probably doesn’t see as their network audience… and given the connectivity issue, I bet they’re a significant chunk of the remainder nowadays. It’s entirely possible that the only actual children who watched Book 3 were relatives and friends of fans.
This is not the portrait of a show in legitimate decline due to audience alienation. This is the portrait of a show that’s been robbed of its greatest source of viewers by the network and rendered impossible to follow by anyone who hasn’t chosen to seek out out.
Can i just say this is exactly what happened? Like to the T. I’m 15 and watched season 1 religiously. But when season 2 came out i saw a couple of episodes and then I stopped. It wasn’t recording on my DVR and i had no idea what was happening. I had no idea what time it was coming on. Honestly, I didn’t even know the 3rd season came out until like 3 weeks after.
I love this show but I’m lazy. If the show won’t tell me when it’s airing, i don’t plan on going to the ends of the earth trying to watch. It’s almost as if they didn’t want people to watch the show
I’m waiting for some hardcore iCarly fan tosay what was actually going on in this scene
On Sep 13, 1944, a princess from India lay dead at Dachau concentration camp. She had been tortured by the Nazis, then shot in the head. Her name was Noor Inayat Khan. The Germans knew her only as Nora Baker, a British spy who had gone into occupied France using the code name Madeline. She carried her transmitter from safe house to safe house with the Gestapo trailing her, providing communications for her Resistance unit.
Oh my God, yes. Let’s talk about Noor Inayat Khan.
- Wireless operators in France had a life expectancy of six weeks. Noor was actively transmitting for over three times as long.
- While she was in France, every other wireless operator in her network was slowly picked off until she was the last radio link between London and Paris. It was “the most dangerous and important post in France”.
- She was offered a way back to Britain and refused.
- In fact, in her transmissions to London, she once said that she was having the time of her life, and thanked them for giving her the opportunity to do this.
- She was captured by the Gestapo, but never gave up: she made three attempt escapes. One involved asking to take a bath, insisting on being allowed to close the door to preserve her modesty, and then clambering onto the roof of the Gestapo HQ in Paris.
- Her last word before being shot was, “Liberté!”
The term BAMF was coined for such persons.
Her entire life, and her mother’s life as well, are FASCINATING. A Royal, Muslim, Anglo-Indian woman in WWII… Could we have a sweeping FACTUAL movie please. Like now?
Yet another story I would like to read.
You guys! There IS A MOVIE!

“Pooh and his friends were given as gifts by author A. A. Milne to his son Christopher Robin Milne between 1920 and 1922. Pooh was purchased in London at Harrods for Christopher’s first birthday. Christopher later gave them to publisher E. P. Dutton, who in turn donated them to the New York Public Library.”
Oh my god. Oh my god.
This is them, guys. This is them. Got chills.
this makes me want to cry
I went to the mall, and a little girl called me a terrorist.
My name is Ela. I am seventeen years old. I am not Muslim, but my friend told me about her friend being discriminated against for wearing a hijab. So I decided to see the discrimination firsthand to get a better understanding of what Muslim women go through.
My friend and I pinned scarves around our heads, and then we went to the mall. Normally, vendors try to get us to buy things and ask us to sample a snack. Clerks usually ask us if we need help, tell us about sales, and smile at us. Not today. People, including vendors, clerks, and other shoppers, wouldn’t look at us. They didn’t talk to us. They acted like we didn’t exist. They didn’t want to be caught staring at us, so they didn’t look at all.
And then, in one store, a girl (who looked about four years old) asked her mom if my friend and I were terrorists. She wasn’t trying to be mean or anything. I don’t even think she could have grasped the idea of prejudice. However, her mother’s response is one I can never forgive or forget. The mother hushed her child, glared at me, and then took her daughter by the hand and led her out of the store.
All that because I put a scarf on my head. Just like that, a mother taught her little girl that being Muslim was evil. It didn’t matter that I was a nice person. All that mattered was that I looked different. That little girl may grow up and teach her children the same thing.
This experiment gave me a huge wakeup call. It lasted for only a few hours, so I can’t even begin to imagine how much prejudice Muslim girls go through every day. It reminded me of something that many people know but rarely remember: the women in hijabs are people, just like all those women out there who aren’t Muslim.
People of Tumblr, please help me spread this message. Treat Muslims, Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, Taoists, etc., exactly the way you want to be treated, regardless of what they’re wearing or not wearing, no exceptions. Reblog this. Tell your friends. I don’t know that the world will ever totally wipe out prejudice, but we can try, one blog at a time.
