The Biggest Loser dehumanizes their competitors and makes them engage in extremely unhealthy habits that were actually strongly discouraged by the doctors on set. Never ever ever ever use it as an example that "you can lose weight if you exercise and eat well!!!!" (which is a lie either way).

I think I’m being trolled by one of those people who think that being fat is a genetic issue, like having brown eyes or blonde hair?

Pretty sure that’s the case, and that anyone who agrees with this anon is a fucking moron. (agreeing here to imply that being overweight is something that is genetic and you can do nothing about, not that the biggest loser is a bad example).

" Years ago I learned a very cool thing about Robin Williams, and I couldn’t watch a movie of his afterward without thinking of it. I never actually booked Robin Williams for an event, but I came close enough that his office sent over his rider. For those outside of the entertainment industry, a rider lists out an artist’s specific personal and technical needs for hosting them for an event, anything from bottled water and their green room to sound and lighting requirements. You can learn a lot about a person from their rider. This is where rocks bands list their requirement for green M&Ms (which is actually a surprisingly smart thing to do). This is also where a famous environmentalist requires a large gas-guzzling private jet to fly to the event city, but then requires an electric or hybrid car to take said environmentalist to the event venue when in view of the public.
When I got Robin Williams’ rider, I was very surprised by what I found. He actually had a requirement that for every single event or film he did, the company hiring him also had to hire a certain number of homeless people and put them to work. I never watched a Robin Williams movie the same way after that. I’m sure that on his own time and with his own money, he was working with these people in need, but he’d also decided to use his clout as an entertainer to make sure that production companies and event planners also learned the value of giving people a chance to work their way back. I wonder how many production companies continued the practice into their next non-Robin Williams project, as well as how many people got a chance at a job and the pride of earning an income, even temporarily, from his actions. He was a great multiplier of his impact. Let’s hope that impact lives on without him. Thanks, Robin Williams- not just for laughs, but also for a cool example. "

People never seem to believe me when I say Sue Storm-Richards is the most badass woman in the Marvelverse.

Sue has, perhaps, one of my favorite, if yet lowballed, powersets.

I’m glad people are reblogging my pics… I just wish it wasn’t by blogs that are all about morbidly obese guys and sexualizing being fat. :-/

holy shit

This is breaking my heart.

I can’t seem to stop crying. At his best, Robin was an unparalleled comedic talent, and this is such a loss.

Holy shit!

I will never understand the Internet when celebrities die. Ever.
