This girl was crying and begging the policeman not to hit her or any of her friends. Then the policeman started crying as well and he said to her: “You just hold on girl.”
The photo comes from protests happening in Bulgaria right now. Students are protesting poverty and corruption in Bulgaria’s Socialist-backed government, chaining themselves to the doors of Sofia University and clashing with police outside of parliament.
After the photo was taken it quickly went viral
this picture is so powerful
The brilliance of the line “No man or piece of scientific technology has ever been to the bottom of the ocean” is that it encapsulates what’s so goddamned frustrating and so goddamned endearing about Nick Miller: He wants so terribly to live in a world in which that is true—because he wants to live in a world in which there’s something amazing still left to explore, discover, create.
Nick sees the world as a terrible, miserable, limiting place—he wants to be able to legitimately dream big—it’s why he’s so given to making broad, borderline-insane pronouncements. (Fill in your favorite “that’s simply not true, Nick” moment here.) He’s not stupid—he’s willfully ignorant. Which is the most infuriating kind of ignorance, and you want to strangle such people, usually. But not Nick. Because he wants to believe—desperately—that he lives in a world in which he can still be the first to do something, see something, make something. As much as the show puts Jess up as the wide-eyed dreamer, she’s not—Nick’s the guy who wants to think that nobody’s been to the bottom of the ocean, so that it’s still left to do. So that we haven’t yet hit the limit. So that maybe, maybe, he can be something more than exactly what this terrible, miserable place wants him to be.
Of course this tends to render him a bit of a, how you say, buffoon. But dammit, buffoonery in the face of the conformist pettiness of reality is why Don Quixote and Falstaff and Huck Finn are still the greatest heroes of the Western Canon. (He said, sweeping his arms, defiantly, Nick Millerishly.)
ATTENTION EVERYONE IN THE LA AREA!!
