Okay, so there’s this app called “Couple” in the app store. ((I think it may have been called “Pair” as well, but I’ve got the AT&T version.)) Let me tell you about this cute little motherfucking app.
Okay, so you have this icon
Not all that impressive, but still cute nonetheless.
Then you open it up, get yourself and your adorable-as-fuck significant other registered with an email and password. You get “paired” and have this little facebook chat sort of thing that only the two of you are able to see.
Oh, hey, and what’s this little thing?
Yeah. There’s this button you can press to gently tell your S.O. that they’re on your mind without having to say much more. How fucking cute is that?
Alright, so you’ve got a wall you two can share. Now there are other little features too such as a place you can draw on the same screen damn near to real-time.
And then you can take that shitty little drawing you created together and post it up on that wall so neither of you will forget how crappy phone screens are to draw with, but damn if that isn’t cute.
Lastly, you have the thumb kiss. Now this feature is unique because no matter where you are in the world, you can use this app and know that you’re both doing the same stupid thing and giggling like an idiot all the while. With a thumb kiss, you press your finger to the screen and your S.O.’s will show up once they do the same.
Then once they get close and/or touching, the screen changes a little
And after a second of touching, the screen turns red and vibrates to signify your “kiss.”
And if that’s not the cutest shit that a dumb little app on your probably-a-piece-of-crap-phone can offer, then you need to get out of my face and go try this app because it’s totally free and will have you smiling for a week.
There is no good and evil there is only power
I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.
You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.
Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.
A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.
On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.
So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.
As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.
Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.
First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.
Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.
You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.
I find it really strange that when you’re in a long distance friendship or relationship all you want to do is see that person and being around them is the biggest most wonderful deal but there are people who interact with them
all the time, on the street and in the classroom and in the shops and it always makes me jealous because you want to be with this person so much and for everyone else they’re nothing special but for you they’re everything special
feminism never made me hate men but the reaction to feminism sure as shit did
some men* you literally cannot hate people you’ve never met or even heard of.
