Flashback. Actor Chris Evans for Flaunt Magazine.

Rule 1. Always reblog Chris’ softcore porn phase.

The thing about this photoset is that Evans is a passive subject for the camera.

Most photos of a beefy blonde male have him staring aggressively. You know the type I mean - stance wide and shoulders spread, eyes lit with challenge, as if he’s about to punch or fuck the camera man. This set is the exact opposite. Evans glances away from the camera like a Victoria’s Secret model, or else peeks from behind a shirt like he’s asking for approval. The photos where he’s on his knees have his spine curved to show off his slender waist, elbows in to show submission. Heck, in one picture the curve of his torso mirrors the curve of the lady on the poster in the background.  

Some photographer, when deciding to work with Evans, decided to shoot him in a way that women are often portrayed, instead of the traditional machismo alpha male bullshit. Thank you, photographer. Tumblr is grateful.

Oh wow someone added smart meta to this photoshoot. That means I can constantly reblog it without shame.

I am here for somewhat confused Chris Evans in varying states of undress.

Someone spoke to me last night,
told me the truth. Just a few words,
but I recognized it.
I knew I should make myself get up,
write it down, but it was late,
and I was exhausted from working
all day in the garden, moving rocks.
Now, I remember only the flavor —
not like food, sweet or sharp.
More like a fine powder, like dust.
And I wasn’t elated or frightened,
but simply rapt, aware.
That’s how it is sometimes —
God comes to your window,
all bright light and black wings,
and you’re just too tired to open it.

By the end of the series, viewers will have a clear sense of what transpired between Durst and the victims of the murders he's been accused of, Andrew Jarecki said at the HBO series' New York premiere Wednesday night.

archangelbeth: Bleach's Captain Byakuya, three-quarters view. Captioned: sigh (Sigh)
[personal profile] archangelbeth
A total storm -- Friday through Saturday -- estimate of a bit over 7 inches here. 7 more inches. On top of the 2 feet. I am, as they say, "not amuse."

Kid had to get shifted again into a regular study hall, because J, the kid who can't stop himself from bullying her, was in the study skills class they put her in. I had Guidance call so I could reiterate, strongly and firmly, that there really needs to be a note in her files to CHECK FOR THAT BRAT'S PRESENCE AND KEEP THEM AWAY FROM EACH OTHER. Anyway, she seems okay with that one.

She is now in an Animal Sciences class, which I hope goes well, but she needs a wardrobe since apparently part of it will be caring for animals, and this will include going into a barn. ...I hope she enjoys it. I think I would have, but who knows. She is also talking about bringing in one of the cats during the Cat section, but I am a little leery of this idea. We shall see. (Perhaps we could ask the humane society if they could volunteer a cat for this?)

The Cat Prison arrived -- a large, tall cage (not yet assembled) in which to place Basement Cat (aka Flicker) so that when Dickens comes out and wanders around, she does not decide to PLAY with him by jumping on him and brawling even when he screams and tries to run. (They did have a good interaction yesterday, where he sniffed her and she cheekrubbed him, but Flicker loves playing, and he needs to get the idea that he could play back like he did with Ivan, and she's not trying to kill him and drag his soul into the basement.) Cat Prison is very heavy. I managed to get it up the garage stairs into the house, but am mildly concerned over the state of my back and knees.

ofearthandstars: Photo of woman running in silhoeutte (running)
[personal profile] ofearthandstars posting in [community profile] c25k
I have been trying to get back to regular runs of 5.0 miles; today I a managed to eek one out, with a time of 10:58 min/mile. It started sleeting halfway through, but since I was already 2 miles away from home, I just kept plodding. I felt pretty energetic for this one, which I think is reflected in my time.

I'm back and forth between regular 5Ks and 5-milers right now, as I'm favoring my left hip (likely my IT band acting up, despite the daily stretches). I want to get back up to 10K, as in my head I'd love to run one of those in the spring.

I noticed today on Map My Run that I've recorded 40 workouts, with 191 miles run since October 2014. It only works out to about 11 miles/week, but I'm pretty proud of that. I'm still not covering the distances I would like to cover, but I'm gonna go ahead and give myself props for running that distance. With the cold and wet lately, it's been hard to stay motivated to go out. And I'm not fleet or fit, but knowing my legs have carried me that far - that makes me feel strong.

I've gotten my DA:I replay through Skyhold, which of course means that I've now played Champions of the Just. And so the Dragon Age writers continue their trend of setting up a world where odds are most people will sympathize with mages, but actually providing a better-written and more satisfying experience when you choose to work with templars. Spoilers beyond.

Spoilers are behind the cut. )

From the no shit Sherlock files

by dibby

Here's a headline that will have you reeling:
States With Most Gun Deaths Have High Gun Ownership And Weak Gun Laws, Report Shows
How can that be? Surely there must be a lot of "good guys with guns" making everybody all polite and friendly. What's going on here?
Alaska has the highest rate of gun fatalities in the country, according to data from 2013. The state saw 19.59 deaths per 100,000 people, which is significantly above the national average of 10.64 deaths per 100,000. VPC's report indicates that Alaska also has the country's third-highest rate of gun ownership, with firearms in 60.6% percent of households.


The study found a similar correlation between gun ownership and gun deaths in the rest of the country. Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and Wyoming, the states that followed Alaska in terms of highest gun death rates, had some of the nation's largest percentages of households owning guns.

VPC also noted that states with weaker gun laws tend to see higher gun death rates. All five states named above have gun restrictions that the report's authors describe as "lax."

The study defined states with weak gun laws as those that don't add extra provisions to federal gun laws, such as banning assault weapons or requiring a permit to buy a gun. In addition, states with open or concealed carry laws were considered to have weak gun restrictions.

States with the lowest gun death rates -- the top three were Hawaii, Massachusetts and New York -- were found to have strong gun laws as well as low rates of gun ownership. A separate 2013 analysis from the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence similarly found that these three states were among those with the strongest gun restrictions in place.

A number of previous studies have linked gun laws and gun ownership with deaths by gun violence, challenging the "more guns, less crime" hypothesis that suggests a higher rate of gun ownership makes communities safer. The Violence Policy Center published a similar study last year, using data from 2011. According to the two studies, between 2011 and 2013, the five states with the highest percentages of gun-owning households saw a noticeable spike in gun deaths per 100,00 residents.

Another recent report from researchers at Johns Hopkins and Stanford Universities found a positive link in all 50 states between right-to-carry laws and a rise in violent crimes.
I, for one, am shocked. I've been told for years that the answer to gun violence if for more people to have guns and here it turns out that the more people have guns, the more gun violence there is. I simply cannot fathom how this could be. Why, you'd have to think that there's something about gun culture doesn't make much sense. Like the fatuous notion that a bunch of doughy yahoos running around with AR-15s strapped to the backs are going to fight off the jackbooted thugs come knocking on our doors. These statistics indicate that they will more likely panic and shoot one of their kids by mistake.
