I have a little owl ornament that a lady gave to me when I visited her in 1984. It was the first time we met and she just picked it up, cradled it in her hands for a few moments and said she’d like me to have it.  That owl, that moment, is special.

People can make moments last a lifetime in one little inanimate object.

A handy guide to some of the terrible things the Mail has printed since 1924.

This barely scratches the surface, though, I find it hard to believe they didn’t do anything terrible between 1956 and 1984.

and yet people still use it as a source

leftists from outside the UK still use it as a source

you all need to stop using the Daily Mail as a source FOREVER. Do not reblog, do not link, do not go to their site because they profit off ad traffic, and tell anybody you see doing any of these to immediately and permanently stop. We can’t run them into the ground but we can at least put a little dent in their profits and we can at least stop legitimising their bile by giving them anything other than negative attention.



petition for a doctor who episode where the doctor travels back in time to meet arthur conan doyle and accidentally happens to mention how popular sherlock holmes is even 130 years later and poor acd almost breaks down crying

"Doctor before you leave…just tell me one thing."
"What’s that?"
"My books, the Sherlock Holmes books…do they die out?"
"No, Arthur. People love them. They carry on for hundreds of years."
"Damnit. God damnit. Fuck."
