make me choose: Sarah or Alison or Cosima (for Isabel)

Would anyone choose Alison? Really? This is a RIDICULOUSLY COOL gifset though. If you aren’t watching this…watch it…it’s on Netflix and Amazon Prime.

When talking about a show, it’s nice to include the name of the show. This is Orphan Black on BBC. But also on Netflix/Amazon.

It’s a fun show that I won’t talk about. Since I can’t if you care at all about spoilers.

This photo, of private citizens in a standoff with federal officers in the Cliven Bundy standoff in Nevada, is something of an American political rohrsach test.

It’s time we stop looking to the organized world of religion as our way of becoming acceptable and pleasing to God.
