i can’t believe it’s 2014 and there’s still no gay romantic comedy about vin diesel and dwayne johnson falling in love

They raise a gaggle of kids undercover working for a gov’t agency together

i would pay multiple dollars to see vin diesel and dwayne johnson portray a cute affectionate couple

A happy day: the Lord sent us a third daughter - Maria, who was safely born at 12:10! Alix hardly slept all night, and towards the morning the pains got stronger. Thank God it was all over quite quickly! My darling felt well all day and fed the baby herself.”- Tsar Nicholas II’s diary entry, June 14, 1899.

"Je suis Rwandais, je suis Tutsi. Mes parents ont fuit le pays en 1964 après le premier génocide, parce que comme ils étaient Tutsis ils ne pouvaient pas travailler ou aller à l’école. Ma famille directe n’a pas été affectée par le génocide, mais disons que je n’ai pas beaucoup d’oncles et de tantes. Chez mon père ils étaient neufs frères et soeurs, aujourd’hui ils sont deux. C’est une triste réalité mais mes parents m’ont appris à vivre avec, et il y a beaucoup de choses que je prends à la légère à cause de ça, je me dis qu’il y toujours quelqu’un qui vit quelque chose de pire dans le monde."

"I’m from Rwanda, I’m a Tutsi. My parents fled the country in 1964 after the first genocide, because they were Tutsis they couldn’t work or go to school. My direct family wasn’t affected by the genocide, but let’s say I don’t have a lot of aunts and uncles. On my dad’s side, they were nine brothers and sisters, today they’re two. It’s a sad reality but my parents taught me how to live with it, and there are many things that I take lightly because of this. I tell myself there’s always someone living something worse in the world."

Today in gym class we were doing major climbing and halfway up this girl freezes and goes “I CAN’T DO IT I CAN’T DO IT”

so some dude yells “MY AUNT SAID DAT AT HER WEDDIN’ BUT SHE MARRIED DAT FINE-ASS DOCTOR AND NOW SHE RICH AS HELL” 

the girl did it. truly inspiring.

I should add that it was a shrimpy 5’1 Indian boy nobody had ever heard talk before who was apparently from the deep south.
