Meet the Reykjavík Metropolitan Police, serving the capital of Iceland. By the looks of their incredible Instagram account, a normal day includes holding kittens, eating candy and wearing false mustaches.
For the record the Icelandic police are probably the best police force in the world, There has only been one instance where an officer shot and killed a civilian in the entire history of the country (which is nearly a hundred years) and everyone was completely devastated by it, the police especially — because, as made clear in their statements after the incident, they understand their function is to protect the people. Not to mention that their general police go unarmed except for special squads.
Let’s run through some more facts while we’re on the subject: Compared to 31,000+ shooting deaths in the US in 2009, Iceland had… 4, because they have very rigorous screening processes for gun permits. There is very little economic disparity between upper, middle and lower classes, and social welfare programs take care of their people. Drug use affects less than 1% of the population between 15 and 65 years old, and 90% of drug-related court cases are settled with a fine rather than jail time. Violent crime is virtually non-existent. [x]
Iceland is like if you took the entire idea of chill and personified it as an country, and this exemplifies that.

#in the hands of almost any other actor#this would collapse the entire artifice of the show & the contrivance of one actress playing about a dozen clones#the integrity of each performance would break down#you’d be left with the sense that the clones are interchangeable women with only superficial differences in appearance & mannerism#but somehow she’s able to layer these performances one over another like skins#there’s a tangible difference between tatiana maslany as alison hendrix#and tatiana maslany as sarah manning as alison hendrix#each of the clones is so whole and unique and distinct that the performances are collectively an argument:#these human beings aren’t interchangeable#they share DNA but environment and nurture and epigenetics have made them completely singular individuals#[they aren’t even all women]#you can’t generalise them; there’s no single trait they all share#except that they’re human beings not biological objects to be exploited#her work is such a tour de force sometimes it just leaves you breathless (via elucipher)

The owner, a 28-year Army vet, will even help students with their assignments “to the extent that I can.”
NO, NO, I’M NOT CRYING.
"I decided that I was a feminist. This seemed uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. Women are choosing not to identify as feminists. Apparently, [women’s expression is] seen as too strong, too aggressive, anti-men, unattractive."
We’re in the year of 2014 and only now have we gotten photographic evidence of dragons petting cats
