"Good morning, Hong Kong."
On the 31st of August, the Standing Committee of National People’s Concgress released their proposition for Hong Kong’s 2016 and 2017 Political Reform. It essentially states that Hong Kong’s 2017 Chief Executive Election will institute a system called the Nomination Committee, who will choose two to three different candidates for popular vote. After popular election of one of the nominated candidates, the new Chief Executive “will have to be appointed by the Central People’s Government.”
Members of the Scholarism movement (a student-led Hong Kong activist group) planned for university and secondary school students to skip classes on the 22nd and 26th of September to protest on the streets. OCLP (Occupy Central with Love and Peace) also had a protests planned for the 1st of October, the national holiday celebrating the establishment of the People’s Republic of China, but the Scholarism protests led them to begin prematurely.
On the night of 26th of September, several hundred demonstrators managed to get into the courtyard of the Central Government Complex, who were immediately surrounded and blockaded by the Hong Kong Police Force. The HKPF refused to let protesters within the courtyard leave, use any bathrooms or receive any external aid such as medical care, food or water. This action had rallied student sympathizers across the city to attend the protests, greatly increasing the number of protesters. It also made OCLP announce that the protest would begin on the dawn 27th of September instead.
The demonstrators in the courtyard of the Central Government Complex were eventually removed sometime over the weekend, but the resultant stand-off between protesters and police forces continued elsewhere in Hong Kong. From Central, Admiralty, Wan Chai, Causeway Bay and even Mong Kok. The tension would finally break when the police engaged protesters with riot shields, batons, pepper spray and tear gas.
What was supposed to be a nightlong protest ended up putting the city on hold over the weekend, with protesters continuing to stay on the streets on the morning of the 29th (don’t forget, Hong Kong’s timezone is GMT +0800).
The picture itself was submitted on Facebook by a news station in Hong Kong called Apple Daily.

It is difficult for me to put into words, but simply put, University students started a class boycott movement demanding democracy and universal suffrage from the Hong Kong and Chinese…

Scenes from L.A.’s growing magician problem.
12-19-12, Los Angeles. New graffiti was found at L.A.’s George Carlin High School today marking a new height in the occult graffiti epidemic that plagues the city.  Said L.A. Police Commissioner Crowley, “They say the chalk washes away but that’s not the problem here.  The issue is that these sigils are made by amateur occultists who don’t always know what they’re doing.  They mean to mark their ethereal turf but several of these alignments are capable of awakening Samael.”
Samael, last seen slaughtering the first born sons of Egypt, could not be reached for comment.  We at FIMJU wanted more expert testimony however so we invited the mummified head of Necromancer John Dee from its tomb in England for an interview. Said the archetypical wizard, “Where am I?  Why hast thou awakened me? Oh how I long to return to the sweet embrace of death, for my every moment awake is an eternity of pain!”
Troubling words indeed.

My mother and I need your help, tumblr!

My mother is one of the greatest people anyone could ever hope to meet. She is so kind, loving, and supportive of everything I’ve ever done and she continues to serve as an inspiration in my life. Unfortunately, my mother has a condition called Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis. Among the many ways MS affects my mother, the most obvious is her teeth. 
Over the course of the 20 years she has had MS, my mother has had seizures. These seizures caused her to smash her teeth together, creating micro-cracks in her teeth. One by one, her teeth have crumbled apart due to the impact of her seizures. She has very few left in the front and no molars. Our health insurance, provided to us from the United States Armed Forces due to my father’s 20 years in the service, refuses to cover the cost of fixing her teeth.My father served in Air Force for 20 years before retiring. During this time he served in the Gulf War, Bosnia, Somalia, Iraq, and Turkey. Yet the military has made it clear that they will not take care of us, despite originally promising to cover the cost of her surgery. They then ruled that my mother’s teeth were not caused by an injury or accident, so they won’t cover the procedure that will save her from constant mouth infections and terrible pain every time she eats. More than that, due to the infections caused by the shards of teeth still left in her mouth, she can not start revolutionary immuno-suppressant drugs for her MS because the infections could overwhelm her body and kill her. They put our “out-of-pocket” costs at $17,000, more than two years of my college tuition. We are a family that lives on one income due to my mother’s inability to work with her MS, so this figure is out of our league. Please help in any way that you can. Donate, or simply share this page to help get the word out. It means the world to me because my mother is my hero and I would love to get her a new lease on life.

You will be shocked, kids, when you discover how easy it is in life to part ways with people forever.

That’s why, when you find someone you want to keep around, you do something about it.

Above all, kindness.
