The Romans and the Web Planet.
Nero gives Barbara the gold bracelet in Rome, and she wears it in her next story. Vicki of course assumes that any jewellery would be a present from Ian! The gold bracelet is also used in the Web Planet to take hold of Barbara and control her. Unfortunately her gift from a Caesar is destroyed on the planet. Guess Ian will have to buy her a new one and replace his missing gold pen at the same time.
This relationship? I mean if you’re into being sold to a man who’s abusive and rapes you but eventually learns to love you, then yes. This relationship.
“Drogo leads Daenerys off to consummate the marriage. A thirteen-year-old girl who had been abused by her brother for most of her life and had been given no say in the marriage, Daenerys is terrified of her bridegroom and expects to be raped. Despite his fierce reputation, however, Drogo proves to be a surprisingly considerate lover. Although he and Dany share no common language, he establishes that he understood the word “no,” then begins touching her gently. He does not begin to have intercourse with her until Dany expresses her consent and initiates it. This tender wedding night set the tone for their marriage, which becomes a remarkably happy one.”
I haven’t gotten into Game of Thrones, but I hear this is one of the differences from the Television show and Novels that some people got annoyed/mad about.
I haven’t read the books (yet) but even I’m pissed off about that difference.
I just had to draw some proper fanart of Pushing Daisies since it is definitely one of my favourite tv shows ever.
So here have Ned and Chuck also known as the OTP who made me dead inside.
There is not enough cream to recover from that burn… someone call a doctor, that man needs a brain amputation.
Hobby Lobby is now the largest corporation to claim religious freedom as a “person” under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). A major flaw with the Green’s claim is that articles of incorporation make Hobby Lobby a separate entity from its owner. This legal separation cannot be eliminated in order for the Hobby Lobby’s owners to impose their personal religious beliefs on its employees. When the owners of a company incorporate, their personal wealth is protected in case of bankruptcy or litigation. At the very least it is hypocritical for the owners to then expect their personal beliefs to trump those of their employees
A corporation is legal fiction. Not a human, no personhood. Their opinions on employee health care choices should be fiction, as well. Not to mention Hobby Lobby is a non-religious for-profit secular corporation.
Liberals won. Note that this does not say Democrats won, because Democrats used to be the more conservative of the two parties. Also I realize that some of these are a bit simplistic. Still, liberals won.
