She started to talk to him about his interests and her kidnapper began to view her as a person he could trust. Eventually, he declared that he was in love with her. After 10 days of captivity, he allowed Elizabeth to borrow his cell phone to play games on it. Naturally, when he left, she used it to call her mother.

This is actually a smart thing to do. If you are ever kidnapped, you should try to humanize yourself & get close to your captors. Do not challenge them, rather try to show them that you are worthy of their respect. If you speak the same language, try to talk with them and exchange information. Learn about them and let them learn about you. Try to relate to them. Family could be a safe topic depending on the situation. If they see you as a person, your quality of life as a captive and your probability of survival go way up. This creates the reverse-Stockholm Syndrome on them in which they can express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings towards you. Now you might have the opportunity to escape like the girl above did!

Well Tumblr it’s that time of the year again. It’s heart breaking I even have to remind people of this.
As we approach the Halloween season if you have a black cat [especially an indoor/outdoor one] it’s time to make sure they stay inside. Unfortunately around this time of the year people think it’s funny to harass and harm them. It makes me sick to my stomach but some people even go as far as to ‘sacrifice’ them. Most adoption groups won’t even adopt them out during this month. I’ve even heard of people trying to harass them when they see them sitting in windows of houses. It’s horrible and not funny but it’s important to protect them.
So if you or anyone you know has a black cat make sure they are aware of where the cat is. And if you see anyone hurting or harassing them [or any cat!] speak up, they can’t do it for themselves.
Reblogging because I’d cut a bitch if they hurt my baby boy, Ninja
As the owner of two beautiful black kitties it sickens me to my core that this happens. Luckily I live out in the middle of nowhere and my kitties are both indoor kitties but I hope everyone else in more congested areas keep their kitties safe!
This is why I’m really glad that Molly is an indoor cat and we have darkened windows.
Although this goes for cats in general this time of year, I’ve heard of a few incidents of this kind of thing happening to black cats in particular. Since I have a black cat, I feel it’s my job to spread this for any of my followers whose fluffy friends might be in similar danger from crazy people.

I think we should all celebrate by taking a moment to appreciate Robert Pattinson’s attitude and I’m laughing so much right now.
JUST ALL THAT HE IS.
Robert Pattinson’s ‘Twilight’ commentary.
I’m going to miss this
Who would have thought he hated Twilight so much?
He hates Twilight more than Stephen King.

Solar Road Trip
"Mom! Earth threw a satellite at me!!" said all the other planets.
"Mom," Pluto wailed, "Earth is saying I’m not a real planet again!"
this is cute.
poor pluto :(
you’ll always be real
I love how our entire generation all take Pluto not being an official planet anymore as a personal insult
