There’s a womanly offense—greater than body odor or bad breath!— Zonite douche was a competitor to Lysol, which marketed its product towards a similar usage. There was an unspoken subtext that it could also be used as a contraceptive, although it didn’t really work. This ad is from 1950. (via Vintage Ad Browser)

Original titles (1944) vs. Reissue titles (1951)
It’s weird to realize that Hanna-Barbera pioneered the “mascot-based kart racing” genre before video games were even a thing.

Anonymous said: I was wondering if you could describe the right reasons to kill off a character?
There are plenty!
-To show that something is dangerous. If your band of six main characters fight the evil dragon and every single one of them survives, did they really fight that strong of a dragon? If the villain is after your character’s family and every family member makes it out alive, is the villain really that scary? Major character death is the only way to make a deadly threat actually seem legitimate.
-To show that actions have consequences. You know that trope where the hero defeats the villain in a city-destroying battle, but all the citizens made it out alive first (because, you know, everybody would be able to hear the news and get out in time *eyeroll*) so nobody innocent dies? That’s a terrible trope because it’s like the narrator is stepping in with an authorial washcloth to keep the hero’s hands clean. Sometimes even actions that end up good overall kill people, and it’s important to show that drastic measures have drastic results and that anything that affects millions of people is going to kill at least a few.
-Yes, sometimes as character development, though you should never, ever do this to the only major woman or minority character because that’s a nasty trope. And even if it’s a straight white dude being killed for character development, it’s important to avoid fridging and manpain tropes. You can do this by giving the character who gets killed other important things to do than getting killed, and focusing on the pain they go through rather than the pain others around them (especially men) go through. When a character who meets those requirements gets killed for character development, I never hear a thing about it being problematic. ESPECIALLY the “giving them other importance than getting killed/character development” part. That is the biggest key.
Valid reasons for killing off a character. Note- ‘to promote your own ship’ is not one of them.
I’m in love with Kauai
Don’t Leave your kids in the car.
Spread this like wildfire. This man, Terry Williams, made a PSA to spread the reality of what little children go through when locked in a hot car.
As it says in the USAtoday article:
A child’s body temperature can increase three to five times faster than an adult’s. That means only minutes left alone in a car can be fatal for a child.
"I’m sitting in the car with the windows rolled up cause I want to know how it feels to be left in the car,"
"As you can see, I’m sweating, like I can barely breathe out here, but my system is stronger than these little kids systems."
Tumblr I’m counting on to get this going. Spread it like wildfire.
This is a topic that make me sob every time I see reports on the news of children or animals suffering from being left in a hot car. These innocent lives who suffer like this cannot protect themselves.
So, please take the time to spread this message and help people to stop and think before considering to leave precious lives locked in a vehicle.

I remember hearing about several deaths involving this shit on the radio god damn.
How can someone even justify leaving a helpless infant alone in a car at all?
I personally am on Team Gilligan & Mary Ann, but I do have to admit, this is a really cute picture.
it totally is.
