Specify: Brave jogger dubbed a hero after fighting off sex beast who was attempting to rape girl in Glasgow park 07 July 2014 0857 AM By Paul O'Hare ABDULL Oun was running in Kelvingrove Park when he heard the victim's screams and sprinted to the scene before knocking out the beast with a flying kick. urbanfantasyinspiration: supreme-leader-stoat: mylifeisafairy-tale: satansbitontheside: bathedinflames: nerdyandyouknowit: cheerfulmetaphysics: tsamthepoet: I hardly see any heroic posts about Muslims on here, so here you go.

The hero the world needs

I remember this. But I feel we’re missing some key points. When it happened, he was out jogging with his puppy:

He heard screams and sprinted towards them. He jumped a fence, saw a man pinning a woman down and immediately fly-kicked him in the face, knocking him out. He then gave the woman his jacket because her dress was ripped and got her a taxi home. She only managed to get in contact with him and tell the papers cause she later found his driver’s license in the pocket of the jacket.
“If I see a person in danger then I will intervene. I would not want to ignore it and then read the next day that a woman had been raped or murdered.”
And his message to the attacker:
“He is a coward and a man with no morals. I won’t forget his face.”

Glaswegians will always fly kick someone I swear. Good on him.

Specify: penfairy oh! I have to tell you guys a great story one of my professors told me. So he has a friend who is involved in these Shakespeare outreach programs where they try to bring Shakespeare and live theatre to poor and underprivileged groups and teach them about English literature and performing arts and such. On one of their tours they stopped at a young offenders institute for women and they put on a performance of Romeo and Juliet for a group of 16-17 year old girls. It was all going really well and the girls were enjoying and laughing through the first half- because really, the first half is pretty much a comedy-but as the play went on, things started to get quiet. Real quiet. Then it got up to the suicide scene and mutterings broke out and all the girls were nudging each other and looking distressed, and as this teacher observed them, he realised-they didn't know how the play ended. These girls had never been exposed to the story of Romeo and Juliet before, something which he thought was impossible given how ubiquitous it is in our culture. I mean, the prologue even gives the ending away, but of course it doesn't specify exactly how the whole "take their life" thing goes down, so these poor girls had no idea what to expect and were sitting there clinging to hope that Romeo would maybe sit down for a damn minute instead of murdering Paris and chugging poison but BAM he died and they all cried out and then Juliet WOKE UP and they SCREAMED and by the end of the play they were so upset that a brawl nearly broke out, and that's the story of how Shakespeare nearly started a riot at a juvenile detention centre dukeofbookingham Apparently something similar happened during a production of Much Ado at Rikers Island because a bunch of inmates wanted to beat the shit out of Claudio, which is more than fair tbh maha-pambata-is-my-patronus honestly Shakespeare would be so pleased to know his plays were nearly starting brawls centuries into the future jabberwockypie Beating the shit out of Claudio is definitely a fair and reasonable response, honestly Source: penfairy Shakespeare

Specify: Stanford Swimmer Who Raped Unconscious
 Woman Gets Short Sentence Because Jail
 Would Have a Severe Impact on Him
 By Dayna Evans
 Brock Allen Turner, the former
 Stanford swimmer who was
 discovered raping an unconscious
 woman behind a dumpster on
 campus in January of last year, will
 be sentenced to six months in county
 jail and probation. Prosecutors had
 recommended that Turner receive a
 sentence of six years, but judge Aaron
 Persky determined that Turner's age
 20 - and lack of criminal history
 warranted him a much shorter
 sentence.
 "A prison sentence would have a
 severe impact on him," Persky said at
 Turner's sentencing on Thursday. "I
 think he will not be a danger to
 Brock Allen Turner. Photo: Stanford University
 others." Meanwhile, the 23-year-old victim in the rape case, who had had a
 blood-alcohol level three times the legal limit at the time of the rape and
 who had no memory of the attack, gave important testimony at the trial.
 "You took away my worth, my privacv, my energv, my time, my safetv, my
 intimacy, my confidence, my own voice, until today," she said, reportedly
 directly to Turner. "I am a human being who has been irreversibly hurt."
 And yet it's Turner who would be severely impacted in his sentencing?

I love Pippin so much. I don’t think there will come time when I’m not reblogging this. Sorry guys.  no no no you guys don’t understand, Pippin is someone really important in the Shire! The books don’t talk about it a lot, and the movies won’t touch that stuff with a bargepole, but Pippin will be inheriting land rights to about a quarter of the Shire. He’s second in line to becoming military leader of all Hobbits. His dad is currently in charge of that stuff, but he’s completely aware of it, and educated for it, and that’s why he’s such an over privileged little shit in the books. I thought it was a shame the movies didn’t talk about class differences in the Shire. Also puts M&P stealing food in an uglier light. To be fair, at the time of the Party, Pippin would have been 12, which puts it back into a more acceptable light.  And they’re stealing food from Bilbo, a wealthy and eccentric family member, which again makes things a bit different. But yes, when they call Pippin Ernil i Perrianath - Prince of the Halflings - they are actually completely spot on. And when Pippin tells Bergil “my father farms the land around Tuckborough” he’s deliberately downplaying his class so that he can greet the boy as an equal rather than a superior.  It’s Pippin’s most adult moment in the series.  Bergil is engaging in a status contest which Pippin can totally win - but instead chooses not to compete.  Pippin is a gilded and spoiled lordling in the Shire, but he becomes a Man of Gondor. Yeah, to add a bit of unnecessary trivia/level of preciseness, Frodo is the oldest of the four; he was born in 2968, was (obviously) 33 at the time of the Party, and so he’s 51 here. Sam’s second-oldest; born in 2980, he was 21 when Bilbo left and is 39 at this point. Merry’s two years younger than Sam, making him 18 or 19 in 3001, when the Party took place, and Pippin was born in 2990, so he was actually 10 or 11 during the Party, and during this scene they’re ~37 and ~29, respectively. So yeah, Pippin’s the youngest by a lot. Plus, taking hobbit aging into account, he really is still in the equivalent of his teens; remember the Party was half to celebrate Frodo’s coming-of-age at 33, and Pippin’s around twenty years younger than Frodo.  This fucked me up. I didn’t read the books and in the movie it was shown like Frodo took off with the ring like 2 days after Bilbo’s gone away, but it was 17 years after that. OMFG. i’m not sure if it’s ever been explicitly stated but the movie and book follow different timelines in the books, bilbo leaves the shire 60 years after his first adventure, giving frodo the ring. seventeen years pass before frodo sets out on his quest in the movies, seventeen years cannot have passed while gandalf goes all nancy drew in denethor’s basement - for one, pippin is obviously not 10 in the party scene - but the story does allow us some wiggle room - maybe a few months, even a year or two? (I DUNNO DID JACKSON EVER SPECIFY GIMMIE NUMBERS) this also accouts for a lot of the confusion re. aragorns age following thranduils advice to legolas at the end of BOFA - in the books, aragorn is about ten during the events of the hobbit, but in the contracted movie timeline, he tells eowyn he’s eighty seven, putting him somewhere around 27+ when legolas goes off to find him also i think i heard some messing around was done with thorins age? i dunno BASICALLY THE MOVIE TIMELINE IS CONTRACTED AND FUDGED AROUND WITH AS MUCH AS THE MOVIE MAPS dont even get me started on those BUT BACK TO PIPPIN so pippin does indeed become the thain, merry also become the head of his ginormous family - the master of buckland, in fact but you know whats best of all SAM BECOMES MAYOR OF THE SHIRE SAMWISE GAMGEE BECOMES ELECTED MAYOR OF THE SHIRE SEVEN TIMES k so to understand the importance of this you gotta remember that sam is poor he comes from a poor family - so poor, in fact, that i’m fairly certain that sam was the only one of them who could read - and only because bilbo taught him. in the very first scene of FOTR, the Gaffer (sam’s dad) says “But my lad Sam will know more about [Bilbo’s treasure].
