The Ring of Brodgar (or Ring o’ Brodgar) is a Neolithic henge and stone circle about 6 miles north-east of Stromness on the Mainland, the largest island in Orkney, Scotland. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the Heart of Neolithic Orkney.
I remember when I thought people in their 20’s were adults. Now all of my friends are in their 20’s and everybody is just kind of fumbling around bumping into each other, trying to figure out where the free food is
Excellent gif use
SINCE MERLIN HELPED UTHER PENDRAGON FUCK HIS CRUSH/FUTURE WIFE IGRAINE, UTHER PROMISED TO GIVE THE RESULTANT BABY TO EVERYONE’S FAVOURITE WIZARD. WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU JUST GIVE A CHILD TO A STRANGE WIZARD MAN WHY.
LUCKILY MERLIN DOESN’T DO ANY WIZARD FUCKERY TO THE BABY, HE JUST GIVES IT TO SOME FUCKER, SIR ECTOR, WHO NAMES IT ARTHUR.
ARTHUR GROWS UP WITH ECTOR AND NOBODY TELLS HIM HE’S ADOPTED, BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE TOO EASY. MEANWHILE, KING UTHER INCONSIDERATELY DIES AND THERE’S A SHIT TONNE OF ANGRY NOBLES ALL WANTING TO BE KING.
MERLIN SAVES THE DAY AGAIN AND TELLS EVERYONE TO HAVE A BIG MEET-UP AT CHRISTMAS BECAUSE SOME EXCITING SHIT IS ABOUT TO GO DOWN. THE EXCITING SHIT IN QUESTION IS A MASSIVE FUCKING ROCK WITH A SHINY SWORD IN IT, WITH “THE FUCKER WHO PICKS THIS UP IS TOTALLY THE KING OF FUCKING ENGLAND” WRITTEN ON IT.
THEY ALSO HAVE A BIG-ASS TOURNAMENT, BECAUSE IT’S YE OLDE TIMES AND WHY THE FUCK NOT.
TONNES OF ASSFUCKS SHOW UP, AND NONE OF THEM CAN LIFT THIS DAMN SWORD, WHAT A FUCKING SURPRISE. SIR ECTOR VISITS THE PARTY WITH HIS REAL SON, KAY, AND ARTHUR.
KAY IS A FUCKING IDIOT AND LEAVES HIS OWN SWORD AT HOME, SO THEY SEND ARTHUR BACK TO FETCH IT. ARTHUR RIDES ALL THE WAY HOME ONLY TO FIND THE ENTIRE HOUSEHOLD HAS FUCKED OFF AND HE HASN’T A CLUE WHERE KAY’S SWORD IS.
BUT WHERE COULD ARTHUR POSSIBLY FIND A SPARE SWORD? MAYBE THAT MASSIVE FUCKING ROCK WITH A SWORD STICKING OUT OF IT? ARTHUR SNEAKS OVER THERE AND CASUALLY PULLS IT OUT AND GIVES IT TO KAY LIKE THE KIND MOTHERFUCKER HE IS.
ARTHUR IS SUCH AN HONEST LITTLE FUCK HE TELLS EVERYONE WHERE HE GOT IT FROM. THEY MAKE HIM PUT IT BACK IN THE STONE AND TAKE IT OUT AGAIN TO PROVE HE’S NOT A CHEATING FUCK, BUT EVENTUALLY THEY AGREE HE’S THE REAL SHIT.
OF COURSE MOST PEOPLE DIDN’T WANT SOME DUMB KID BEING KING, SO EVEN WHEN HE’S EVENTUALLY CROWNED ALL KINDS OF BITCHES TRY TO FIGHT HIM AND EVERYTHING GETS MESSY AND COMPLICATED. BUT AT LEAST HE HAS A BITCHIN’ SWORD AND A PET WIZARD.
Okay, this is actually what you do if you’re being sexually harassed in any kind of public space. Draw attention to it, preferably pull away and let EVERYONE know that someone is touching you. This will not only get him to get off you but he’ll definitely think about this situation next time he wants to do something like this.
Spreading the word.
My mom and I were talking about this today after hearing about a woman who was molested on a plane who said nothing until she was picked up at the airport by her parents. My mom looked at me and asked what I would do in that situation and I looked her dead in the eye and I told her “it would take me .02 seconds to realize what was going on and yell angrily, and then I would be straight on to bitch slapping him so hard he wouldn’t be able to see the punch I’d throw with the opposite hand”.
She nodded and accepted my salty language like a seasoned sailor.
I’ve had experience with this before, in Prague a group of five girls and I were followed by three men at night. After a while they started yelling at us, the most common being “how much?” Meaning how much we “cost” as prostitutes. Seeing as they weren’t going to stop, I turned on my heel, faced them (which surprised them), spat at their feet and responded with “You couldn’t afford me.” This prompted the other girls to start yelling back at them as well, starting with our spitfire Czech friend to start slinging curses in Czech as she and the rest of the girls came up beside me. Needless to say the men backed off and pretty much fled. They weren’t expecting a fight. It empowered me and encouraged the rest of the girls to yell back too.
I’ve heard that a lot of people don’t know what to do in this situation because they’ve been taught all their lives to be polite and non-aggressive. Keep your heads down or whatever.
Keep in mind that studies have shown that rapists look for victims who won’t fight back.
Remember that nobody has the right to touch you without your consent or harass you, and you have all the right to make the biggest fuss about it that you can possibly make.
Get angry. Be in command.
If someone is doing something that makes you uncomfortable like this, you do not need to be nice. Swear, kick, scream, make the asshole cry. You don’t have to nice, be as rude as you want
… and remember that not everybody feels safe making noise or calling attention to the situation, and there is no shame in not doing so, and just because you didn’t yell and scream and make a scene, doesn’t mean you consented or that you wanted it or that you deserved it.
Good point and I’m sorry I didn’t mention it but any reaction to harassment or assault is valid and okay. If you don’t feel safe, don’t do it.
The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water.
