Whenever I see this gifset, I always hear Monty Python in the background singing,
I’m a lumberjack and I’m okay…..
i love sir patrick stewart more with each passing day.
See, guys. This is how you do it. Notice the words “Not all men are like that” are never spoken.
He knows men are like that
his father was like that to his mother
he has experienced the pain firsthand, of what it’s like when men are like that
and he never wants men to be like that again and he fights tooth and nail against the men who are still like that
And moreover, he acknowledges his privilege [as an older white male who is famous/well known] and uses it to speak up. He knows what he is, and he never has to say he’s not like those men he fights against—he never says it, his actions speak loud enough for everyone else to see it.

A deliciously cool and refreshing bubble bath. With far too many Lush scented bubbles. Because it’s the weekend and I’m a grown-up, dammit!
Is this the article that he sued about, won, and is donating to…something I don’t remember the name of because I’m not English/because I live in another country/because I don’t always pay attention to things?
If so, well done, man. Way to be an excellent human.
No, he sued about a story in the Sun that said he cheated on his girlfriend when he had not done so. He donated the money to the victims of the Hillsborough Disaster. The Sun had previously written a very disrespectful story about the disaster, for which the city of Liverpool has never forgiven them, so that’s the link between Russell’s victory and what he chose to do with the money.
Updated for the clarification provided by the all-knowing rustyboots. Cheers!
How the Geneva Drive (the mechanical step that makes the second hand on a clock work by turning constant rotation into intermittent motion) works.
As an engineer, this makes me happy.
If only one loop of this gif were equal to one second…
watching this while listening to a clock ticking
is the best decision i have ever made
Man this is rather fascinating.
