    This is so intense like… if you miss your mark you get beheaded


    You’re doing them a disservice by not including who they are! These girls are high school students. They are the Tomioka High School Dance Club from Tomioka High School in Osaka. They went viral in Japan when they got runner up in the “All-Japan High School Super Cup Dance-Off” held as part of Yokohama’s summer of dance this summer (August 2017). You’ll know Yokohama’s summers of dance from the regular mass Pikachu dances you see on social media each summer. 

    They’ve blown up since then. The promotional video they made at the school has more than 30 million views. They’ve been on tons of TV shows, including performances with Oginome Yoko, the original singer of the song (Dancing Hero (Eat You Up)) that they remixed for their dance. 

    This dance routine was riffing off the comedian Hirano Nora and actually includes some of her comedy catch phrases in the remix. (They even got her to join them eventually!) For the uninitiated, one of the most accessible forms of comedy in modern Japanese pop culture are comedians like this who create outlandish SNL type characters and then appear on one or more shows regularly as that character. Hirano Nora’s gimmick is that she’s a woman from the height of Japan’s “bubble economy” era in the 80′s when there were tons of newly wealthy yuppies. This is why the remix is called “Bubbly Dance”. (Compare her to similar comedy character Blouson Chiemi whose gimmick is that she’s a modern, man eating career woman.)

    These girls deserve all the fame they’re getting. You can read about them in the Asahi Shinbun and also check out this piece on Akane, their 25 year old coach via Japan Forward. 


    Fun fact: the reason wearing seatbelts became common in the US was because kids were trained to in school, and would constantly bug their parents to wear their own seatbelts. In my mom’s words, everyone was shamed by little children into behaving safely.


    This is how I got my mom to quit smoking,,, by annoying the everloving shit oughta her at age 7


    My 8 year old looked at a man in the airport (when I had to fly her to her Dad’s for the summer) and the sass came out in 3 ways.

    First: She would constantly ask why someone wasn’t wearing a mask, loudly. “It’s not like it’s hard.”

    Second: Standing in line to get food she noticed ome guy behind us wasn’t adhering to the 6 feet guidelines. She turned to him. “Six feet please.” He was so surprised he stepped back automatically. But then glared at me as I shrugged. “Rules are rules dude. She did say please.”

    Third: A woman sneezed on the other side of the terminal waiting area. She was joined by a couple other kids for this one. “If you cough or sneeze, use your elbow please.” Honestly half of us were trembling to keep in the laughter and the others were just shocked to hear kids speak up like that.


    hearing a five year old yell across the yard that the neighbors were having a party and “its illegal!” is hysterical. 


    my dad guillermo laying it out


    His table is piled high with food he will never touch but he will kill you for taking the smallest morsel, even if you are starving

    shit how did I completely miss the point of this part


    Also, his eyes aren’t in his head. They’re in his hands. He only sees what he reaches for, what he desires, what he wants.


    This is glorious and even thought it doesn’t fit in the range of all the paranormal, I MUST share

    It works like this: You tell Kitestring that you’re in a dangerous place or situation, and give it a time frame of when to check in on you. If you don’t reply back when it checks your status, it’ll alert your emergency contacts with a custom message you set up.

    It doesn’t require you to touch anything (like bSafe) or shake your phone (like Nirbhaya) to send the distress signal. Kitestring is smarter, because it doesn’t need an action to alert people, it needs inaction.



    reblogging because this is seriously amazing.


    Back in 2009 a girl from my school got her entire family and my ex boyfriend to make a twilight musical that was literally just them recreating the entire movie but with 3 original songs added in. this is the trailer.

    it’s also IMPERATIVE that you all know this was not intended as a joke or satire. this girl just really fucking loved twilight


    I don’t have the full musical but here’s the baseball scene


    I think about this video every day.

    The hissing, the body glitter, the original songs, the grandma - it’s perfect.




    The judge who sentenced this sexual predator is Rosemarie Aquilina. Larry Nassar abused over 150 women, including Gabby Douglas, Simone Biles, and Aly Raisman. Judge Rosemarie made sure this predator pays the price for each and every one of them. Hella props to this badass judge. Judges around the world need to take notes. 


    This is a gif of Judge Rosemarie tossing a bullshit letter larry nassar wrote about how “hard” it is for him to hear his victims testify. The level of badassary within this woman is untouchable. 


    we need more women like this in law


    Perish, fool
