can we just take a moment to imagine little cute nine-year-old hermione reading matilda
and peering into this book about a smart, bookish girl who could move things with her mind
and then can you imagine her concentrating very hard on the books on the bookshelf and slowly, slowly, getting them to move
Sometimes I get huffy about tumblr but then I see that 260,000 people got the same kind of chills I did reading this…
the true american experience is wondering if you just heard firecrackers or gunshots
PLEASE TELL ME THIS IS A JOKE
bonus points: both are illegal in your state and you still cannot tell

BREAKING: The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department is suspending its water shutoffs for 15 days. We will keep up the pressure until they stop the shutoffs permanently!
Statement from the Detroit Water Brigade: http://bit.ly/1sFfDgg
Without struggle, there is no progress
This is really important, but I can’t emphasize enough to tradtional AND social media—this is NOT. OVER. At a recent community meeting, the water dept said:
In a community meeting with the Rosedale Park residents July 17, DWSD representatives told residents there would not be a moratorium on foreclosures. DWSD sub-contractor Charlie Fleetham also told residents there would not be an implementation of an affordability plan because it was against the law.
What that means is that people can still lose their homes AND that any type of affordability plan is *ILLEGAL*. do you understand that? *JUSTICE IS ILLEGAL*.
This also means that when the 15 days are up? If there already was a holy reign of media terror against the people who can’t pay their bills, it will be even WORSE after the 15 days and people still can’t afford to pay their bills. Who can solve poverty in 15 days? I know I can’t. But there will be *relentless* “WE GAVE YOU EXTRA TIME, WHAT IS UR PROBLEM??????” narrative spewing and an even more aggressive call to shut off than what there already is.
Folks in the media MUST stay vigilant!
Patients taking the antidepressant Effexor (venlafaxine) should be aware that the drug manufacturer Pfizer has issued a recall of one lot of the medications after they discovered one bottle contained a heart drug used to treat atrial fibrillation.
The medication found is Tikosyn that was discovered in one bottle of Effexor XR. The heart medication could cause abnormal heartbeat that could cause symptoms of dizziness, sweating, pallor and fainting.
Patients should check their antidepressant for lot numbers 130142 and V130140, with expiration date of October 2015. Also recalled is Effexor XR with Greenstone lot number V130014, which expires in August 2015.
The antidepressant recall includes two lots of Effexor XR® 150 Mg Extended-Release Capsules and one lot of Greenstone’s Venlafaxine HCl 150 Mg Extended-Release Capsules.
The FDA warns the interaction between the heart drug Tikosyn and venlafaxine “could be fatal”.
Hi friends - if you know anyone who might use the medication, please reblog/signal boost
well fuck i’ll have to check mine when i get home
Yo, check with your Pharmacy as well, give them a call/go to the store and ask. When these things happen all pharmacies get the notices and check their products (mostly cause we gotta ship ‘em back) Also, you only need to be careful if you’re getting the actual bottle and not amber vials.
Effexor and Tikosyn look waaay different and any tech/Pharmacist would probably have noticed. We open the bottles, pour out the pills and count them. Believe me, someone probably would have been secretly playing that “One of these things is not like the other.” game.
Venlafaxine kind of looks like Tikosyn? But not really, and since there’s no generic Pfizer’s name is literally on the pill so…
