bro, I was just about to propose to you, i loved your blog that much. And now I find out you're a pothead. massive respect lost bro. I'm sorry. Still love you! just not as much...
Deeeefinitely not a pothead. In response to the other anon, I haven’t smoked in well over 6 months. I appreciate it, but it is not and never will be a part of my life. Instead of having a drink to calm my nerves, I might smoke a little bit. But again, this hasn’t happened in a looong time. Sorry I’m not as flawless as you thought, I guess. xP

As the world population reached 7 billion today, CNN helps us grasp just how big 7 billion actually is.
Seven billion seconds ago, the year was 1789. That was the year George Washington was inaugurated as the first U.S. president and Congress met for the very first time.
If you took 7 billion steps along the Earth’s equator — at 2 feet per step — you could walk around the world at least 106 times
Suppose an average thimble holds 2 milliliters of water. Seven billion of those thimbles would fill at least five Olympic-sized swimming pools.
Let’s say the average human is about 5 feet tall, accounting for children. If you stack those 7 billion people end to end, they would reach about 1/14th of the way to the sun — or 27 times the distance to the moon, Volpert said.
Seven billion ants, at an average size of 3 milligrams each, would weigh at least 23 tons (46,297 pounds).
I’ve never felt so much pity for a fictional character before.
I really love that series. not only for the storyline itself but for the continual themes of trust, love and friendship. it’s impossible for me to get over how Rowling wrapped all of that mind-blowingness into seven relatively short books. amazing
