for each age is a dream that is dying,

or one that is coming to birth

"…Rialto’s randomised controlled study has seized attention because it offers scientific – and encouraging – findings: after cameras were introduced in February 2012, public complaints against officers plunged 88% compared with the previous 12 months. Officers’ use of force fell by 60%.”

This should be a federal law.

There are some days where I feel like Diogenes the Cynic
When Plato gave Socrates’ definition of man as “featherless bipeds” and was much praised for the definition, Diogenes plucked a chicken and brought it into Plato’s Academy, saying, “Behold! I’ve brought you a man.” After this incident, “with broad flat nails” was added to Plato’s definition.

#diogenes looks so sulky#go away pretty women and leave me and my barrel in peace

Whenever I see art where Fingon is taller I smile to myself because what I imagine is so cute like
"Do you want me to describe the battle to you… or find you a box"
"No for sure get a box"
And it becomes this inside joke that confuses everyone around them 
At some point this whole thing involves an elaborate but empty cardboard box arriving at hithlum and the whole court is like wtf but meanwhile their king is basically dying laughing 

#and there is no indication that Fingon is called ‘Fingon the Taller’
