My parents do the same damn thing. Like I swear to god they have loud conversations at like 6 in the morning right outside my door. They have the whole house and they choose right there.

My parents are the same way. I get yelled at if I step wrong in this house.
Parents be trippin man because they have the heaviest footsteps I’ve ever heard and it makes me irrationally angry sometimes. And they’re more inconsiderate than me because when they’re sleeping, I tip toe and listen to movies extra quiet and shit.
But when I’m sleeping, it’s turn on your tv up to 70, smash plates around and talk like your kid isn’t sleeping across the hall from you.Assholes mrsjohnbarrowman
The microwave goes off, my parents close their door.
Yes, the scent of a delicious tv dinner is just so offensive.Lol my parents are so fucking strange I s2g Family It's not even like it was loud Take y'all old asses back to sleep!

dragon ball z cakeballs
ummm remember when i tried to make cake balls covered in carmalized sugar and it didn’t work?!?!
TELL ME THIS SECRET
After you make the cake balls, put them in the freezer. They shouldn’t be completely hard but they should be stiff. Not so much so that you can’t get the stick in though.

Pirates of the Caribbean Disney POTC
For too long I’ve been parched of thirst and unable to quench it. Too long I’ve been starvin’ to death and haven’t died. I feel nothin’. Not the wind on my face nor the spray of the sea. Nor the warmth of a woman’s flesh.
Whitewashing Star Trek Into Darkness Khan This is the best thing I've ever seen
Casting appreciation gif.
This seriously pisses me off because TWO men of the “correct” ethnicity/race were asked to play the role of Khan. I don’t remember their names because this back when Into Darkness was in casting yo but they BOTH DECLINED.
So there’s a HUGE difference between “well, we asked the best in the business and they both said no, so we should go with another actor of the ‘incorrect’ race who is also very well suited for the role” and doing what the Hunger Games did which is literally only let white girls audition for Katniss.
When actors decline there is fuckall you can do. It’s shitty, no doubt, that Khan ended up being white, but BC did a great job in the role, while knowing he was third choice. I won’t begrudge him for taking it, and I won’t begrudge the casting crew for going with him after their best actors declined.
I really don’t wanna be stepping on people’s toes here, but being someone who hasn’t seen the original Star Trek, why exactly does it matter? This is an alternate universe, mind you, basically Star Trek AU fanfiction. I thought Benedict Cumberbatch did a good job….they couldn’t find the right actor with the right race, so they grabbed him instead, and he did a wonderful job.
I may be missing something here, and I’m sure I’ll definitely be reminded of that, but whatever. I just think its not that big of a deal.
Well because Khan is originally a PoC. And the character is the most genetically perfect human, and that perfect human happens to be, whattya know it, a non-white person, which is a HUGE deal. It was an even bigger deal back then.
They couldn’t cast Uhura as a white woman, now could they? Because her role on television itself was a HUGE deal. Because Nichelle Nichols was one of the first black actresses that was portrayed in a non-stereotypical role.
ALSO, she was a part of the first shared on-screen kiss between a black woman and a white man on American television. Martin Luther King even convinced her to stay on the show when she considered leaving, because her role was too important as a breakthrough.
Star Trek was a breakthrough for a cast of more than one race.
So it utterly baffles me that the role of Khan had been turned down before Benedict was cast.
