Peter Capaldi in his recent Big Issue interview on Doctor Who (via team-joebama)
For international readers, the government here basically said that a £9000 per year deferred charge will make more people go to uni, especially poor people. Their grand idea is to send basically everyone, no matter how able they are, to uni to get the most money into the institutions because they don’t want to pay for them anymore, despite the fact they are the hotbeds of innovation that drive the economy. So not only are we putting youth in considerable debt, that youth is paying for not only their education but architecture projects, scientific research, archaeology projects (Richard III) etc that should all be government funded. Think back to uni, 30 people in a seminar, 100-200 in a lecture, library books, all at £9000 each? Uni does not cost that much. Also, by basically removing the ability threshold and making A-Levels like a grammar school test they keep lots of young people off the unemployment figures for 3-4 years.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Becoming and The Gift Parallels
I sacrificed Angel to save the world. I loved him so much. But I knew, what was right. I don’t have that anymore. I don’t understand. I don’t know how to live in this world, if these are the choices. If everything just gets stripped away. I don’t see the point.
Buffy- The Gift
Blood. Of course. The blood on my hands must be my own. I am the key that will open up the door. My blood. My life
1. No new sonic screwdriver
Before donning his new costume, Capaldi starts the episode in Matt Smith’s old purple coat. But that isn’t the only hand-me-down from his predecessor. Asked by a young fan to describe his new sonic screwdriver (“WHAT. IS. YOUR. NEW. SONIC. LIIIKE?”) Capaldi gave a…
Number 9 makes me laugh! Ouch! The rose fans will be crying with anguish.
Why? Everyone is so focused on the celebs in front who is expecting to see another celeb behind them? Had people known she was there it would have been a different situation
Oh God! I hope it’s true! I need read it.
Soul-less Spike: tried to rape Buffy and kill them all on several occasions
Soul-less Angel: tortured Giles and killed Ms Calendar and several other people [he also tried to bring on the end of the world]
Possessed by Hyenas Xander: tried to kill Willow and Buffy…
Spike does it under the pretense he is good though. That he has some morality. Either Spike is responsible for his actions or Buffy is stupid as hell to leave her baby sister and friends around him. Fans have to decide which. Would Buffy let Dawn sleep-over at Angelus’ mansion? I doubt it. What is the difference with Spike? Why does she believe he is good or capable of it? Either he is or she is the biggest dunce on the show.
Was the lady on the bow of the ship with the shield Nymeria or is it generic?
Can my British friends explain this to me?
In 1989 there was a massive disaster at Hillsborough football stadium. 98 Liverpool fans were crushed to death. Instead of focusing on the great tragedy The Sun went to blame the Liverpool fans themselves and published this front page.on the left.
Liverpool fans they said pickpocketed the dead.
Liverpool fans they said Urinated on the police.
Liverpool fans they said beat up police trying to help the victims.
It was all a lie, fed by horrific stereotypes of Liverpudlians in Britain. And non-Liverpudlians accepted it, because the victims were Liverpudlian. They are stereotypically, poor, unintelligent, thieves.
For 25 years the families campaigned to save reputations of their dead relatives, their friends and their city. To get justice. The deaths were caused by inefficient management of the football ground. Not getting the large crowd through before kick off. Giving the team with less support more entrances. In a last gasp attempt to get people in, the managers opened the main gate. Hundreds rushed in because they missed kick off and the ones in front died in the crush. There was mass confusion.
It turns out, the police altered witness statements, covered up their mistakes. The original inquest was based on incorrect evidence. The Liverpool fans were the ones looking after each other. The police did nothing after a certain time when they said every victim had died, this was not true.
