“I turned back to the traffic, turned to the bay, said, ‘Fuck it, nobody cares,’ and I hurled over the bridge. See, what most people do, apparently, is they get on the ledge on the side of the bridge, and they stand there, so people can talk them out of it, y’know, or pull them up, or whatever. I didn’t. I didn’t want anybody to talk me out of it. I just wanted to die. So I hurtled over the railing with my hands, and I was falling head first. And the second my hands left the railing, I said, ‘I don’t want to die.’”—Kevin Hines, who survived his jump off the Golden Gate Bridge. Impact with the water shattered his T12 and L1 vertebrae. The shards of his vertebrae entered his organs, but missed his heart. From the documentary, The Bridge. (via 61penn)
SUGARSCAPE GIVES ONE DIRECTION NEW ANSWERS TO THE DULL QUESTIONS THEY KEEP GETTING ASKED
Q 1:How did you guys form?
Louis:It was quite strange actually; we met on a forum for young men with pigeon fetishes. Niall began writing self help songs on his guitar and we’d all Skype each other and sing them. Next thing we knew we were in a band.
Q 2:So you entered X Factor as solo artists?
Liam:X Factor? No, we don’t know where this rumour has come from. There was a talent contest for all the Pigeon Loving is Erotic Boys (PLEBs) and we entered that as a five-piece and came sixth out of eight. We were over the moon.
Q 3:Did you know each other before?
Harry:Yes we used to meet up every Wednesday evening and look at pictures of a pigeon named Kevin.
Q 4:What advice did Simon Cowell give you?
Zayn:He told us to never be ourselves, to hide all aspects of our personalities, be violent and to stop all relations with pigeons. We’re gutted.
Q 5:What are your roles within the band?
Harry:I’m the ugly one.
Niall:I’m the English one.
Zayn:I like to punch things.
Liam:I also like to provoke mindless violence.
Louis:I’m the manly one.
Q 6:What’s it like having all the crowds and screaming girls?
Niall:We get a little arsy about it actually; we find they scare off the pigeons.
Q 7:Do you have Simon Cowell’s phone number?
Louis:Simon doesn’t use phones. He communicates through messages delivered by masked horsemen.
Q 8:Would you date a fan?
Liam:Yes. I’d date all the fans, all together at the same time. I’d video everything I did with them and then post it on the internet straight away. That’s the kinda guy I am.
Q 9:Do you have girlfriends?
Harry:We can’t answer that, last time we did Kevin the Pigeon was put on suicide watch.
Q 10:What makes you so huge?
Niall:I dunno really, (pulls down trousers) is it really that huge?
so I was just scrolling through a random blog and my mom comes in my room to tell me goodnight and she looks over at the screen and she sees a post that says ‘I like watching myself bleed.’ and she just looks at me odd and leaves …my mom probably thinks i’m suicidal now.
i miss the generations when a guy had to ask a girl out by asking her parents, where a girl could just be beautiful in a tshirt, where bubonic plagues decimated villages across europe and left a third of the population dead. reblog if u agree
