The Handsome Family - “Pony”
I feel like this should have been the anthem of my childhood.
Let’s give a moment to those mothers that can not have a child…
and to the husbands that stick by their wives regardless of wether they can have a child
This was the most realistic Disney movie ever.
yeah the part where the house flies off due to a bunch of balloons was very realistic
Actually they consulted an architect about how many balloons exactly it would take to do that to a house of that exact size and weight. They calculated that moment using a physics engine and took everything into account. Unless a professional architect as well as all of the physics professors who put their effort into that highly advanced physics engine are wrong, that take off was actually very doable and scientifically accurate.
GET WRECKED SON
It just got better
Coming to the unwelcome realization that you are trapped in a Lovecraftian friendship like “You’re my best friend and I think you’re amazing but I’m pretty sure that if you started resurrecting corpses I would just shrug and help out”
Friends help you through a zombie apocalypse. True friends help you start one.
"The Appalachian region is just like the rest of the U.S. — only more," said Frieden, who spoke in several spots in the region on the invitation of Republican U.S. Rep. Hal Rogers of Kentucky. "We want to help an entire community and a whole nation." Appalachia, like some blighted urban areas and Native American reservations, mixes several ingredients of poor health: doctor shortages and access-to-care problems; stressful, unhealthy lifestyles; low education levels; and insidious poverty.
The problem with articles like this, aside from the tendency to blame the absolute economic drain on the people that are suffering in a manner that clearly screams “I HAVE NEVER BEEN TO APPALACHIA”, is the way they open up Appalachia to mockery and ridicule in the name of “helping” and “bringing awareness”. Take these facebook comments on this article for instance:
Appalachia is not filled to the brim with the inbred and the uneducated, but articles like this, albeit well-intentioned and informative to many, do nothing to help us rid ourselves of this unfair stereotype and these disgusting, blaming remarks. They have bled us dry and are too busy mocking us to understand the gravity of this situation.
