"I don’t pick people up on the street anymore. I just use Easy Taxi or Grab Taxi. They pay me $3 for every booking - so every time I pick someone up on the street, I lose $3. You see I don’t even on my company system anymore.
Comfort lost a lot of call business so they don’t like it. But the small companies don’t mind if you use the apps.
Every day I do about 20 jobs from the apps - that’s $60/day or an extra $1800 per month. Why would you pick up from the street when you can earn an extra $1800 per month?”
This photo was taken at the University of Minnesota by photographer Robert Wolfe in 1972. It was taken during surgery for an ectopic pregnancy. No one can deny the humanity of the unborn even in these early stages.
A doctor who was present for the surgery later shared this testimony:
“Years ago, while giving an anesthetic for a ruptured ectopic pregnancy (at 2 months), I was handed what I believe was the smallest living human ever seen. The embryo sac was intact and transparent. Within the sac was a tiny human male swimming extremely vigorously in the amniotic fluid, while attached to the wall by the umbilical cord. This tiny human was perfectly developed, with long, tapering fingers, feet and toes. It was almost transparent, as regards the skin, and the delicate arteries and veins were prominent to the ends of the fingers. The baby was extremely alive and did not look at all like the photos and drawings of ‘embryos’ which I have seen. When the sac was opened, the tiny human immediately lost its life and took on the appearance of what is accepted as the appearance of an embryo at this stage, blunt extremities, etc.”

Harry was the favorite kid and he wasn’t even an official part of the family
Because Molly knows exactly how the Dursleys treat him. There’s no way Ron wouldn’t tell her. And Molly Weasley is a Mother. She gets a capital M because she is goddamn phenomenal at what she does. When she hears Harry Potter is on the train to Hogwarts in Book 1, her reaction isn’t to be starstruck. It’s to say “that poor dear had to come here all on his own.” Molly Weasley loves harder than anyone. She loves like it’s her sole reason for being. And when she hears there’s a poor boy who has never known love his whole life… how could she not?
In Year One Molly Weasley knit Harry a Weasley family sweater and made him homemade chocolate so he would have something to open on Christmas DON’T TOUCH ME
could I also just add that kids from abusive households tend to assume that yelling is directed at them and/or it heralds something bad for them so she’s making extra sure that he knows that this is not his fault and she’s not actually mad at him.

I got tagged by mythical-rhink :) I’ve been away for a while so sorry for the late response!
Oh I din expect you’ll tag me. Thanks yukiteru!
Hey! Once you get this, you must publicly say five things you like about yourself, then pass it on to fifteen. Not back to me :)
Not quite sure what I like about myself but here goes:
1) I’ve pretty good direction sense.
2) I’m much better in the sciences than the arts.
3) I try to do what I like/want to do, rather than what the society expects. (Shouldn’t we all live for ourselves, rather than for others? But sometimes, it can be hard.)
4) I almost always attend all lectures and tutorials and do my homework.
5) I enjoy reading the newspapers (and whatever interesting articles I may come across on the net).
Oh man I think I think I’m better off listing what I dislike. :( So many things to improve on.
I tag: ron-mmy, raaddd, fungyi, la-panda, hk-kr-tw-cn, dramaquotes, incessantcomposition, littlecloverstar, mic7879tvb, photoshopbyfyh. (By right it’s 15 but I dun rly know ppl on tumblr so there’s only 10. Oops!)
