We have to find a new balance, Pope Francis said in the first extensive interview of his papacy, in which he sought to set a new tone for the church.
WHY AREN’T MORE PEOPLE FREAKING OUT ABOUT THIS??? THE POPE. CATHOLIC POPE. HAS SAID THAT “that the Roman Catholic church had grown “obsessed” with preaching about abortion, gay marriage and contraception, and that he has chosen not to speak of those issues despite recriminations from some critics.”
HE IS BASICALLY SAYING THAT CATHOLICS ARE TOO FOCUSED ON PREACHING ABOUT HOW BEING GAY AND HAVING ABORTIONS ARE WRONG AND WE NEED TO FOCUS ON “THE CHURCH’S MANDATE TO SERVE THE POOR AND MARGINALIZED”.
AND HOW TOO MANY (ESP. AMERICAN) PRIESTS NEED TO FOCUS ON THE FACT THAT “The proclamation of the saving love of God comes before moral and religious imperatives.”
AKA FOCUS ON GOD’S LOVE RATHER THAN PREACHING THAT THE BIBLE SAYS BEING GAY AND HAVING ABORTIONS IS WRONG.
THIS IS FUCKING HUGE?!!!!!!!!!!
THREE CHEERS FOR POPE FRANCIS! THREE CHEERS FOR A POPE FINALLY LEADING BY EXAMPLE!
This is really super fucking good holy shit

I can guarantee the closest shave you’ll ever know.
I think this hug ^^ is one of my favorite Star Trek moments. LOOK AT THEM ALL RUNNING TOWARD EACH OTHER. AND KIRK IS LIKE OMGGGG MY BFF AND SPOCK IS LIKE *GRABS MCCOY’S HAND AND SHAKES IT BECAUSE HUGS WOULD BE UNVULCAN* AND. Okay, next hug is sadder, but I made it look inappropriate, don’t worry.
More Macklemore, less Robin Thicke.
And yet a huge percentage of Tumblr hates him. Not trying to be confrontational, but could someone please explain to me why this is?
Because he is a straight white guy and Tumblr isn’t always right.
Yup. A lot of people like to ignore all the good things he does simply because he is part of the privileged. Never mind that he flat out acknowledges this in Same Love. (“I may not be the same, but that’s not important.”)
BLESS YOUR SOULS.
BLESS YOUR FUCKING SOULS.
I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT STAND THAT FUCKING A LOT OF TUMBLR HATES MACKLEMORE.
BECAUSE HONESTLY, HE WAS EVERYTHING THEY WERE COMPLAINING WHITE PEOPLE AREN’T AND NOW THAT THEY GOT A FUCKING ROLEMODEL THEY SUDDENLY COMPLAIN?????? BECAUSE HE’S WHITE?????
Macklemore grew up privileged, yes, but he understands the inequality and the disturbing gap between rich and poor. He has a song called White Privilege:
"Hiphop started off in a block that I’ve never been to
To counter act a struggle that I’ve never even been through
If I think I understand just because I flow too
That means I’m not keeping it true, nope.”
"But as I’m blessed with the privilege, they’re still left with the scars"
AND HAVE YOU HEARD HIS SONG CLAIMING THE CITY???
"I grew up on Capitol Hill,
With two parents and two cars.
They had a beautiful marriage, we even had a swing set in our yard.
My mom didn’t have a job, because my dad made enough money that we could live comfortably and he could support us.
Now, he commute to Tacoma, so we knew we be good.
But then I realized everybody looked just like me in my neighborhood.
I go to school, which was diverse.
But indeed us, I got sandwiches and Capri Suns well my friends ate their free lunch.
It’s crazy trying to look back, cause when I was growing up
I didn’t understand the fact was there’s something called a social status.
And my black friends wanted my financial bracket.
And then my city’s divided,
From neighborhood to neighborhood
We’re polarized but we claim we’re progressive.
The police shoot in the hood but never once in my residence.
As a white person been shot at we’d stopped in a Lexus.
And to think that we have claimed that so much has changed”
OH GOODNESS ME, HE’S SUCH AN ASSHOLE. HE’S SO PRIVILEGED GOD.
HOW ABOUT A WAKE???
"Don’t wanna be that white dude, million man marchin’
Fighting for our freedom that my people stole
Don’t wanna make all my white fans uncomfortable
But you don’t even have a fuckin’ song for radio
Why you out here talkin race, tryin’ to save the fuckin’ globe
Don’t get involved with the causes in mind
White privilege, white guilt, at the same damn time
So we just party like it’s nineteen ninety nine
Celebrate the ignorance while these kids keep dying.”
Tumblr needs to hop down off it’s high fucking horse and instead of turning against a potential role model and ally to all that they’ve been fucking preaching about JUST BECAUSE HE’S PRIVILEGED AND WHITE, maybe make him an icon because he’s not rapping about disrespecting women. He’s making a small change. But because he grew up with a well structured family environment and he was able to afford everything he desired, he’s suddenly the enemy.
even with those four numbers there are countless possible combinations good luck with figuring out which one is the right one you punk
It’s pretty likely that it’s a four digit number, and as there are four digits chosen there, that means that there cannot be any repetition. This mean that there are:
n!/(n-4)! possible orders. As ‘n’ is 4 (number of digits available). 4!/0! which becomes 4x3x2x1/1 which simplifies to 24. That means that there are 24 possible combinations of codes. This would take you about two or three minutes to input all possible codes.
Unless an alarm goes off if you don’t get it right in 3 tries
*straightens calculator again*
Kick the fucking door in
well ‘technically’ the code is most likley 1970. statistically, a majority of people, when told to choose a 4 digit code will choose their birth year. and this key pad is obviously a few years old to put it nicely, thats most likley it.
some sherlock holmes shit just went down over here
No, no, no. Don’t base your deductions of psychology. Let’s talk chemistry. When you first press a button, there’s more of the natural oils on your skin, and therefore it wears down the numbers on the keys faster. Obviously 0 is the first one, then. Try 0791 first.
Oh God. What the hell are we breaking into? Is it the vault that holds the Sherlock gag reel or what?
I’d personally side with basing the code on the wear of the keys (I had theorized this a few days ago upon seeing this post — the condition of the keys would definitely tell you). However I would argue that the 1 is more worn out than the 7, and the same with 1 and 9. So my guess would be 0179. But of course, it is a bit difficult to decipher which keys are more worn out than others, it’s mainly a matter of opinion. So 0791 could be an equally smart guess.
YES!!! Thank you! I’ll set up the account right now. It may take me a while to get into the habit of regular updates though. Our Internet is down so I’m using library wifi right now. I’ll do that as soon as the cable company gets it going. It won’t take long though. Thank you! (Sarah Jane is my favorite too. She’s amazing)

That time the Doctor and Ace went to 1963 and something extremely meta happened.
So we’ve got Nine
And now Twelve
Anybody else noticing a pattern?
