When you’re shooting out of the end of a water slide, the first thing on your mind is not how you look to people watching nearby. In fact, you’re probably more concerned with where your swimsuit is.
In her series “I Love Summer,” photographer Krista Long captures that wonderful moment when people are jettisoned from the end of a water slide.

"The Long, Dark Bathtime for the Soul"
Sitting in the tub, only a small candle for a light
The flame flickers on the wall, barely holding back the night.
Wanting to take an escape from life’s eternal wrath
Christiane wasn’t sure what to do, so she took a bath.
The wax drips down the sides, hardening as it goes
And Christiane stretches out her limbs, popping bubbles with her toes.
She soaks and dwells, internally yells, at all that has gone wrong
It all feels like it lasts forever, but it isn’t really very long.
The water has cooled, her skin has pruned, and the bubbles dissipated
So Christiane is forced to return to her life earlier than she anticipated
She remembers to remember, that it’s all okay because
None of it really matters, except the stuff that does.

trees like these are the best to sit under and read books or draw or just relax and be alone
or you can climb it and sit up in the foliage waiting for unsuspecting pedestrians to walk by so you can swing down on one of the roots with a Tarzan scream and kick them in the face before running from the traffic cops
two kinds of people.
I just finished reading the Incarnation novels by Avery Williams which I enjoyed reading. I created the base images in Illustrator and then used Photoshop to add text and effects. Cloaks from Deviant art released some texture packs then I added into the background to give it some character.
Just filled out my health insurance forms!
yeah!!! fucking around with health insurance forms!!!!
I hate when people complain about “oh health forms are stupid they want my biological sex instead of my gender!!!!” or “they only have male or female!!!”
There’s a reason for that, you dumb fucks, and they’re referring to biological sex
Different health risks are present in different sexes, and whatever gender is in your head does not change the fact that if you were born female, you have a higher risk for certain cancers and osteoporosis, and if you were born male you have a higher risk for heart disease and often a shorter lifespan than a female.
In other words, your biological sex is an important factor in health and health insurance, and your special snowflake status doesn’t change that.
Coulda said it nicer but it’s true; it’s about health.
No. There gets a point where nice doesn’t work. There’s too many stupid ass angsty teens on here that are gonna get themselves seriously hurt or sick because they wanna be a special fucking snowflake. Lemme tell you a thing. Doctors don’t give a flying fuck what you identify as. All they want to know is do you have two X chromosomes or an XY? Because cancer and lupus and certain medicines don’t give a flying fuck what pronouns you use. This is about your fucking LIFE. stop being angsty for TWELVE SECONDS because when you’re in an ambulance or going into cardiac arrest or whatever the situation may be, it’s ESSENTIAL that you get your head out of your ass long enough to tell them your BIOLOGICAL SEX that you were BORN WITH. It literally may save your life.
This is so important.
