Considering that all of these are false, no.

First Spy kids movie - 30th March, 2001
First crash bandicoot game - 31st August, 1996
Earliest release of Pokemon Red and Blue - 27th February, 1996
At what point when researching the original release date of Pokemon did you not stop to think that “Pokemon Red was released in 1868” MIGHT have been a joke?
At what point when reblogging and adding your reply did you think that there are some people on tumblr who don’t consider this joke to be anywhere near funny?
Sorry, I will add a trigger warning before #jokes from now on.
jokes about time aren’t funny anymore guys
"This book gives me more information about penguins than I care to have."
In 1944 a children’s book club sent a volume about penguins to a 10-year-old girl, enclosing a card seeking her opinion.
She wrote, “This book gives me more information about penguins than I care to have.”
American diplomat Hugh Gibson called it the finest piece of literary criticism he had ever read.

Simultaneously the worst and best movie ever made
Actually one of my teachers watched every single version of Romeo and Juliet with the original text in front of him to prove that this was the worst version, but to his great dismay its the most accurate film adaptation of it, with the lines closest to the original text and most similar stage direction and relayed emotions.
He proceeded to show it to us in class.

This is ingenious.
mcdonalds needs to do this
okay but I’m actually really scared that the lid of the drink is going to come off or something
//the way this works is that it stops about 2 inches above the top (the hole only big enough to go that far without ripping) so you wouldn’t have to worry about the lid coming off!
it’s really a brilliant idea. it cuts down on the amount of materials used, and space it takes up. all around good engineering.
from the looks of it it might be recycled materials too? if not then it should be.
it frees up your other hand from having to carry your drink but also doesn’t shove the cold drink next to the warm food
This is the definition of innovation, no amount of sleeves on a blanket can beat this.
THESE ARE SO COOL! LOOK AT DRACO ASDFGHKJJL’AS
CAN WE HAVE THIS AU INSTEAD OF THE SECOND HALF OF BOOK 7
BECAUSE I MEAN
Ginny Weasley is a “person of interest in Salazar Opera House arson and bombing.” HOLY SHIT CAN I READ THAT

Instead of waiting in her tower, Rapunzel slices off her long, golden hair with a carving knife, and then uses it to climb down to freedom.
Just as she’s about to take the poison apple, Snow White sees the familiar wicked glow in the old lady’s eyes, and slashes the evil queen’s throat with a pair of sewing scissors.
Cinderella refuses everything but the glass slippers from her fairy godmother, crushes her stepmother’s windpipe under her heel, and the Prince falls madly in love with the mysterious girl who dons rags and blood-stained slippers.
Persephone goes adventuring with weapons hidden under her dress.
Persephone climbs into the gaping chasm.
Or, Persephone uses her hands to carve a hole down to hell.
In none of these versions is Persephone’s body violated unless she asks Hades to hold her down with his horse-whips.
Not once does she hold out on eating the pomegranate, instead biting into it eagerly and relishing the juice running down her chin, staining it red.
In some of the stories, Hades never appears and Persephone rules the underworld with a crown of her own making.
In all of them, it is widely known that the name Persephone means Bringer of Destruction.
Red Riding Hood marches from her grandmother’s house with a bloody wolf pelt.
Medusa rights the wrongs that have been done to her.
Eurydice breaks every muscle in her arms climbing out of the land of the dead.
Girls are allowed to think dark thoughts, and be dark things.
Instead of the dragon, it’s the princess with claws and fiery breath
who smashes her way from the confines of her castle
and swallows men whole.

All of the days! I’m going with spareheadphones by train on the Friday and returning on the Sunday.
[image reads]: School is a Prison and damages our kids by Peter Gray from Salon.com
"Children are required to be in school, where their freedom is greatly restricted, far more than most adults would tolerate in their workplaces. In recent decades we’ve been compelling them to spend ever more time in this kind of setting, and there’s strong evidence that this is causing psychological damage to many of them. And as scientists have investigated how children naturally learn, they’ve realized that kids do so most deeply and fully, and with greatest enthusiasm, in conditions that are almost opposite to those of school….
Most people assume that the basic design of today’s schools emerged from scientific evidence about how children learn. But nothing could be further from the truth.
Schools as we know them today are a product of history, not research.
Research has shown that people of all ages learn best when they are self-motivated, pursuing answers to questions that reflect their personal interests and achieving goals that they’ve set for themselves. Under such conditions, learning is usually joyful.
The evidence for all of this is obvious to anyone who’s watched a child grow from infancy to school age. Through their own efforts, children figure out how to walk, run, jump, and climb. They learn from scratch their native language, and with that, they learn to assert their will, argue, amuse, annoy, befriend, charm, and ask questions.
They do all of this before anyone, in any systematic way, tries to teach them anything.
This amazing drive and capacity to learn does not turn itself off when children reach five or six. But we turn it off with our coercive system of schooling.”
Public schooling, at least in America, was started around the time of the Industrial Revolution, and was a preparation for factory work when kids got old enough. That’s why the hours are as long as they are and every public school seems to run on the same shitty system that only provides bare minimum education. It taught basic literacy and work ethics to children who could then grow up and be decent employees. The school system wasn’t designed for learning and teaching, it was designed as job preparation.
I had so much trouble reading this because it takes me back to highschool and elementary school and I found myself staring at the ceiling for twenty minutes trying not to cry.
School killed my urge to learn, read, explore, and whatever self-confidence I had as a blissfully ignorant child.
The worst part of this to me is that these problems -aren’t- unsolvable. They aren’t at all! Other countries have already experimented with alternative forms of teaching for young children and highschoolers with great success! Look at Finland for fuck’s sake!
It’s not an unsolvable issue! People are just too fucking lazy to try and FIX IT.
don’t ask a lot of questions, don’t prove the teacher wrong, don’t deconstruct the oppressive assumptions in the documents, don’t self-educate
This is the most important thing in the entire world.
