harry potter is such a fucking joke. they’ve made MILLIONS by appropriating wiccan culture and they don’t even acknowledge them. its seriously offensive and i have no idea why people think its okay.
This is satire right?
I hope this is a joke.
Harry Potter has LITERALLY NOTHING TO DO WITH WICCA, in fact, wizard ing stories of any sort like Harry potter and the modern idea of wizards and witches have nothing to do with Wicca. Wicca is a highly spiritual religion (I was a Wiccan before I was agnostic haha like I had books about it and not those trendy goth devil summoning books that claim to be Wiccan)
Also Wicca is a joke religion.
No it’s not??? There are people who actually use Wicca for what it is supposed to be about? Wicca is not just about practicing magic.
Yeah, one of my moms friends is Wiccan, its more about being inline with nature and spirits. They do some ceremonies and rituals, but its mostly worshipping nature.
Anyway if they want to play that card, Wicca is pretty much appropriation of Celtic mythology and other ancient pre-Christian religions, belief systems, cultures and mythologies: you see elements in Wicca that are blatantly taking from the Welsh, Irish and Scottish mythology for example.
My (shy) Wiccan sister: Um, Like, the first person was all like, ” Uhhhhhh this is the worst thing and it is such an appropriation,” like there are so many things in media, like, things are getting better now, but there are so many things in media that showed that witches are bad. We should be grateful to Harry Potter for showing us that there are good people and bad people and people in between.
Red? I think it’s red.
I basically did this once and it’s how I got pink eye.
I can’t tell if you’re making a pun or if you’re telling an actual story.
Either way, I’m still laughing.

Were these artists even real?
That last one cracks me up. The second one is also particularly awkward…
At least these dinosaurs actually lived in the same time period
Well well well. As SSB4Dojo pointed out on their blog, it seems Spirit Train can be played on For Glory mode. Which means it must have a Final Destination version.
But how the heck does that work?
Glad to see they’ve implemented the hype train as a stage.
Honestly, it was overdue.
So calling someone an idiot makes you ableist trash. But telling someone to kill themselves is perfectly fine
Glad we have out priorities straight tumblr
World’s languages traced back to single African mother tongue: scientists.
New Zealand researchers have traced every human language — from English to Mandarin — back to an ancestral language spoken in Africa 50,000 to 70,000 years ago.
Scientists say they have traced the world’s 6,000 modern languages — from English to Mandarin — back to a single “mother tongue,” an ancestral language spoken in Africa 50,000 to 70,000 years ago.
New research, published in the journal Science, suggests this single ancient language resulted in human civilization — a Diaspora — as well as advances in art and hunting tool technology, and laid the groundwork for all the world’s cultures.
The research, by Quentin Atkinson from the University of Auckland in New Zealand, also found that speech evolved far earlier than previously thought. And the findings implied, though did not prove, that modern language originated only once, an issue of controversy among linguists, according to the New York Times.
Before Atkinson came up with the evidence for a single African origin of language, some scientists had argued that language evolved independently in different parts of the world.
Atkinson found that the first populations migrating from Africa laid the groundwork for all the world’s cultures by taking their single language with them. “It was the catalyst that spurred the human expansion that we all are a product of,” Atkinson said, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Atkinson traced the number distinct sounds, or phonemes — consonants, vowels and tones — in 504 world languages, finding compelling evidence that they can be traced back to a long-forgotten dialect spoken by our Stone Age ancestors, according to the Daily Mail.
Atkinson also hypothesized that languages with the most sounds would be the oldest, while those spoken by smaller breakaway groups would utilize fewer sounds as variation and complexity diminished.
The study found that some of the click-using languages of Africa have more than 100 phonemes, or sounds, whereas Hawaiian, toward the far end of the human migration route out of Africa, has only 13, the Times reported. English has about 45 phonemes.
The phoneme pattern mirrors the pattern of human genetic diversity as humans spread across the globe from sub-Saharan Africa around 70,000 years ago.
