Hello!! I’m in need of a HUGE signal boost right now (and maybe a big reporting session) because my best friend is being blackmailed by her ex boyfriend. 

I’m not exactly sure what I’m supposed to put here, but I feel like this should be a warning for anyone who knows him and just a general informative thing. Jacob lives in Australia and is 16 years of age. They’ve had a very unhealthy relationship and he’s threatened sending out her nudes multiple times. Jacob is very manipulative and emotionally abusive towards her and even ends up pulling me and her other friends into not being able to do anything because it’ll end up hurting her. He’s made around 7 Twitter accounts to contact my friend in the times that she was trying to get out of the relationship.

In the picture above, he’s posted her nudes and threatened her.


His Twitter accounts all start with @/neinthousand but the one that was most recently used was: @/neinthousand12 (but it was apparently deleted)

His Facebook account is:Jacob R Hynes, and he has more but I am unable to find them. They’re under Jacob Hynes and the like.

********** UPDATES!!! **********

First, we thought we had a compromise. 

Then this happened not even a minute after:

PLEASE CONTINUE REBLOGGING THIS. My friend is only 15 years of age and this is absolutely horrible. We’re getting ahold of local authorities but if you see the pictures anywhere (namely twitter) REPORT THEM IMMEDIATELY.


Kill this motherfucker. I’ve dealt with this in the past and only managed to get TWO photos taken down. My underage nudes (that I didn’t even want taken) are floating around the internet due to scum like this shithead.

Take him down.

My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.

Named one of Rolling Stone’s list of the “50 Funniest People,” [Michael] Che has become one of the fastest rising stars in comedy. Before taking the Weekend Update gig, Che served as a writer for “SNL” and also recently debuted as a correspondent for “The Daily Show” this past June.

He’s smart, funny, and knows how to integrate humor into current events, which makes him a great choice as an anchor.

While Che is an awesome pick based on comedic chops alone, his replacing of Strong doesn’t really solve “SNL’s” problem of not having enough African-American, female voices, or its history without featured female voices in general.

Since Weekend Update started in 1975, only seven women have served as anchors for the skit. Prior to the Tina Fey-Amy Poehler era on the mid-2000s, you have to go back to Christine Ebersole’s six-episode stint on the sketch in 1982 (when it was called NewsBreak) in order to find the last time a woman was featured as an anchor.

One has to wonder why Colin Jost, a relative unknown to mainstream viewers, was able to keep his spot on Weekend Update while Strong, a veteran of the show, got the boot from the sketch.

I mean, there have been plenty of white males who’ve gotten the chance to shine as anchors, why not use the spot as a way to promote a person of another background or gender?

If you go back to the issue of “SNL’s” lack of African-American, female comedians (there have only been four in the show’s history up until the hiring of Sasheer Zamata last year), the late-night series could have used Weekend Update as a platform to address this controversy.





Neil deGrasse Tyson on Aliens

Hawking is all worried that aliens might suck our brains out. That concern comes from the fact that when any of us explored the world with high technology ships and came upon a civilization less advanced, it was bad for the less advanced civilization. They either were completely wiped out or subjugated or enslaved or whatever, so I think his fear about aliens is a reflection of his actual knowledge of how humans treat each other, not real knowledge of how real aliens would treat us."

- Neil deGrasse Tyson




alien life is SO FAR BEYOND our comprehension, potentially, that it doesn’t fucking contribute to anything other than fearmongering to suggest that they would destroy us if they came in contact with us.

if alien life is out there and it’s looking to make contact with other species, its goals are most probably the same as ours: to figure out if there is life elsewhere in the universe.

why speculate on the very tiny chance that a warlike advanced alien species is going to crash down on us and wipe us out when there are a million other more amazing possibilities out there?

Because white people live in fear that SOMEBODY—even if it’s a damn tentacle monster from Alpha Centauri—is gonna come and do to them what they’ve done to the world.

As a Muslim, I’m sick of people asking me how I feel about 9/11. What do you want me to say, seriously? Do you want me to say, “It was a great plan, mwahahaha!” before I fly off on a magic carpet?

I was born and raised in this country and was just as shocked as everyone else to learn there were people on this earth so vile as to commit such a horrific attack - or to even think about doing it.

But I didn’t do it. Neither did 99.999999999 percent of the roughly 1.5 billion people in the world who also call themselves Muslims. So why should I or any other Muslim apologize for what happened? Nickleback is planning on releasing another album. Should I ask white people to apologize for that?

I am going to reblog this quote every year.
