Call for Submissions: What’s Your Favorite Tumblr?

timemagazine:

At TIME.com, we’re working on a guide to the best Tumblrs out there. But we want to know what you think first.

What Tumblr can’t you live without? (Aside from ours, of course.) Whether it’s news, photography, design or just cat videos, we want to know what you follow — and why. 

Reply to this post (and include the URL) with your picks. We’ll mark popular suggestions as “Readers’ Choice” in our final list, which should come out by the end of January.

This is the sign I made today, and plan to stand at a busy corner in the rain.  I do not live in Oregon, or Washington state.  I am disabled, my husband lost his job due to illnesses which include Stiff Person Syndrome, scaring on his brain (could be MS) hypothyroid, sick sinus syndrome (requiring a pacemaker at 37), and now something showing up on his liver. 
We believed that it would only be a short time before he would be better and be able to get back to work.  That was two years ago.  His unemployment benefits have run out, and now with all his diagnosis we are able to finally pursue disability for him.  My SSDI and child support come to a monthly total of $2346.00 monthly.  Our rent - we can’t afford to buy - is $1150.00 a month.  We are currently $195.00 overdrawn, and the overdraft protection has been turned off by the bank.  We have no more gas in our car.  I will get the last half of child support next week; coincidentally that is exactly $195.00.  The next SSDI check won’t be here until June 1st.
We have not paid our utilities, or car payment in two months.  We have a six month old who needs diapers.  He was our 1% miracle - as in birth control is only 99% effective.  Go figure.  If my husband’s disability is not approved soon we will be homeless by July.  Because our situation is dire now, we have written letters through his SSDI attorney for compassionate allowances.  However, once we are homeless our situation is no longer considered “dire”.
We will survive this.  Our marriage will survive this.  But, I am putting my country on notice.  I will not accept this any longer, I will not back down, I will not forgive, and I will not forget.  I will fight for change, I will fight this oppression.  My family is the 99%, and I am PISSED OFF!!!

If you’re going to go down, you might as well blame it on an imaginary animal like Twitter did with their infamous Fail Whale. I’ve taken the liberty of creating this animal for you:

Please use it. 

Please oh please.

Update:  Tumblr used the TumblBeasts!  Check it out :D

Huh?
Normally the crater Archimedes shows a smooth volcanic floor, small pockmarks of more recent craterlets and shadows from the craggy wall that surrounds it. So what is this?
A transient lunar phenomenon? Or the stuff that dreams are made of? Hmmmm.

I don’t really play console games, but when I used to play xbox 360 what I heard inside my headset was primarily “OMG FAG FUCK YOU DIE FAGNIGGER ASSPICKLE COCKTHUNDER FAG ASSPICKLE etc,” or some variation thereof.

I started playing on Steam about a year ago, and people who speak into their mics…
