My neighbours are getting scammed by a tradesman. This asshole is playing the husband, since he’s older and his memory isn’t great. He’s playing him and taking more and more of his money and I can’t do anything about it besides tell the wife to call the police and get family friends there as support to tell this guy to quit the harassment (He keep coming around when the wife’s not home and laying on the talk to convince the husband they owe him more money).
These are the situations where I wish I was a big strong man to throw my weight around and to be able to provide intimidation. People taking advantage of the elderly/older people should be slapped and thrown in jail.

1,200 aboriginal Canadian women have gone missing over the past 30 years. Hashtag asks #AmINext?

On Aug. 17, Winnipeg police pulled the body of 15-year-old Tina Fontaine out of the Red River near Alexander Docks.

The scope of the tragedy prompted Holly Jarret of Hamilton, Ont. — cousin to Loretta Saunders, an indigenous woman who was murdered in February at age 26 — to launch the #AmINext hashtag earlier this month.

So, what’s being done about it? | Follow micdotcom

Broadway should cast actors to be time period accurate.

Don’t get me wrong I am in no way racist. I just feel that if broadway is going to put on a show about 1800’s France then they should cast the characters to be accurate to that time period. I’m just really bothered by the fact that on…

'Cause, you know, people randomly breaking into song is totally accurate to real life too. Totally realistic.

reignoverall asked: ONCE YOU GET THIS YOU HAVE TO SAY 5 NICE THINGS ABOUT YOURSELF PUBLICLY AND THEN SEND IT TO 10 OF YOUR FAVOURITE FOLLOWERS. THINKING GOOD THOUGHTS ABOUT YOURSELF IS HARD BUT IT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER SO GIVE IT A GO, FOR THE SAKE OF SPREADING POSITIVITY! :D

Oh my goodness, I have no idea what to say. 

1-I like that I’m physically strong and not afraid to get dirty or break a nail.

2-I like that I’ve capable of living on my own/am comfortable being by myself (some people hate being by themselves, being alone in their head).

3-My sense of humour, when I’m not making dirty jokes, is amusing at times. And sometimes to other people too, which is even better.

4-I tend to be able to see different sides to a lot of issues, which can be bad at times, but I like that it makes me more empathetic I think.

5-Umm, my vast knowledge of stupid movie trivia and facts is rather useless, but it keeps my mind busy. Plus I like being able to recommend movies and films to other people. :)

Okay, so that’s five. But I honestly don’t know if I’ll be sending this to other people (I sucked at sending chain letters in elementary school, too).
