There was a split second there where his like, “wait, what? bro what are you doing?”
On more serious note, PTSD dogs for veterans are so fucking therapeutic. They’re like the one person you can spill your guts to and never worry about ever being judged or have that secret divulged. There are times when I definitely prefer the company of a dog over a human.
Therapy animals save lives.
These dogs are even still so much more amazing. They check rooms before their handler enters, so they can clear it to help the person feel safe. Like in the gif, they are there when panic attacks or nightmares occur, to be something for the person to help ground themselves on, or yes just to turn on the lights. Even more amazing, many people are able to reduce their medication when they have a PTSD service dog there to help them. These dogs are useful for not just veterans, but also victims of abuse, accident trauma, natural disasters, and others. Their training allows them to be useful in situations where medical assistance is needed, as well. Some PTSD dogs are trained to recognize repetitive behaviours in handlers, and signal the handler to break the repetition and stopping the behaviour and possibly injury.
Service dogs in general are just awesome. Remember to respect any that you see out in public. They are not there for you to walk up to and play with, even the puppies!

PINK APPRECIATION POST.
These are a few of my favorite pictures of her. #dreamgirl
Okay - just from a semiotics/art appreciation standpoint -
Do you notice that in her images where she is topless, she is not sexualized in the way that scantily clad women often are in photography? She looks aggressive, or like she’s just standing around doing whatever. She does NOT look submissive or “come hither”. The expression in one of these is a “fuck you” expression and sometimes the expression is playful - but aggressively so.
She is posed the way that half-naked men are posed. NOT half-naked women.
"I am an Inuit seal meat eater, and my fur is ethical," wrote Alethea Arnaquq-Baril, bundled in a sealskin coat, pants and boots. She also wrote a letter to DeGeneres and posted it online.
Samsung vowed to donate $1 for every retweet of DeGeneres’ celebrity-packed Oscars selfie to a charity of her choice. She raised $1.5 million for the Humane Society of the United States, which campaigns annually against Canada’s seal hunt.
The Ellen DeGeneres Show’s website calls the seal hunt “one of the most atrocious and inhumane acts against animals allowed by any government.”
The Inuit have long defended the hunt as a sustainable practice, deeply rooted in Inuit culture, which helps feed people in a region plagued by hunger.
"The meat feeds families, which is important to an area where many households have identified that they face issues of food insecurity," said Sandi Vincent, who posted her own sealfie Thursday.
The pelts also come in handy in the cold northern climate and provide a needed source of income, she said. She also countered the idea of the hunt as “inhumane.”
"In Inuit culture, it is believed seals and other animals have souls and offer themselves to you. Humanely and with gratitude we accepted this gift," she said, reminiscing about catching her first seal at age 15.

WELCOME TO NIGHT VALE - THE TABLETOP ROLE-PLAYING GAME!
It’s finally finished! Click here to download a PDF of the Welcome to Night Vale role-playing game, which I wrote and which ten artists provided illustrations for. If you missed your copy at Norwescon, you can still possess this mysterious artifact!
This game uses a simple 2d6 system: even if you’ve never done tabletop role-playing before, it will take mere minutes to learn, and all you need are a couple friends and two regular old six-sided dice.
Be warned that this game has NOT been play-tested — whether or not playing it causes stars to appear (or disappear) in the night sky, or its effect on the nervous systems of household pets in its vicinity, is still unknown.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to my contributing artists, all of whom created original pieces in exchange for nothing but the satisfaction of a job weirdly done: monstersanosa, moriartylaughingalonewithcrown, zenamiarts, pizza-soup, strexiest, themonsterghost, goddess-in-green, idontevenknow-anymore, astrogyaru, and female—president. Even if you don’t do tabletop gaming, download this PDF for the AMAZING illustrations. :D
Feedback can be directed towards our various and sundry Ask boxes. Please let the artists know how much you appreciate their work!
you don’t know how hard I laughed

Notes: Thanks to Alex/maladyofthequotidian for encouraging me from the very beginning to make this and scribe for being the one to actually get me to finish it.
i imagine both steve and bucky like to come up with different ways to poke fun at sam every time they pass him during jogging
because they are shitheads
(the first one is a print you can get here)
THIS IS THE MOST RELEVANT THING I’VE EVER SEEN ON THE INTERNET. EVER.
imagine bucky and steve taking shots of like 100 proof vodka and trying to get DRUNK and steve is totally unaffected but after the 20th shot or something bucky is drunk as fuck and he looks at steve really seriously (while swaying slightly in his chair) and steve is kind of nervous because bucky hasn’t looked at him this intently since before the war when steve came home with two broken ribs and bucky just stared at him for five minutes before giving him the longest lecture of his entire life so yeah steve is kinda nervous. finally bucky rubs his hand over his face, sighs and says, “steve, i fucking hate it when you wear khakis” and steve laughs so hard he can’t breathe
