I’d like to take a moment to bring to people’s attention what is happening in Scotland right now, more specifically Glasgow. I’m not sure many of you even realise that yesterday we had the chance to vote to be an independent country, and overall, the run up to voting day was fantastic! There was such passion and positivity from both Yes and No camps, but that is now a thing of the past as since the votes have been counted and a NO vote has won 55% to 45% YES. George square has been the hub for many YES gatherings over the past few weeks, and I live in Glasgow and I’ve walked through them, and it’s been a really great atmosphere, but these pictures show what replaces that today. Within 48 hours it has gone from a scene of positivity, to complete anarchy, and the BBC has covered virtually none of it! I ask that you please be aware of the discord going on in Glasgow and Scotland right now, and if you’re in Glasgow please stay at home and be safe, this is not how it should have ended.
Ugly and terrifying scenes from Glasgow’s George Square tonight - stay safe everyone.

This was ad-libbed by the voice actor, Craig Ferguson and they chose to keep it in because they loved it. Kids won’t get it but adults will be thinking “did he just imply what I think he implied?”
And later the director confirmed it.
DeBlois revealed that, the reason Gobber never got married, is because he is homosexual. This makes him the first homosexual character of the franchise, and even DreamWorks itself.
My house is strange. There’s me, i’m bisexual, and I live with my gay brother and my asexual fiance.
My brother and I have the same taste in boys, but i’m really the only one who likes girls, and my fiance is generally just really excited about dragons.
Dude I want this sitcom

BETTY BOOP - The Original Story
Ms. Esther Jones, known by her stage name, “Baby Esther,” was an African-American singer and entertainer of the late 1920s. She performed regularly at the (The Cotton Club) in Harlem.
Ms. Jones singing style went on to become the inspiration for Max Fleischer cartoon character’s voice and singing style of “Betty Boop”.
YES: “Betty Boop” was a black woman.
Singer Helen Kane saw her act in 1928 and copied it, stole it. Ms. Jones’ “trademark” singing style for a recording of, “I Wanna Be Loved By You.” with interpolated words such as ‘Boo-Boo-Boo’ & ‘Doo-Doo-Doo’ in her songs at a cabaret was a style all her own.
An early test sound film was also discovered, which featured Baby Esther performing in this style, disproving Kane’s claims. During the $250,000 infringement lawsuit, Esther’s manager testified that , “Helen Kane & her manager saw Baby’s act somewhere between 1928-1929.Baby Esther’s manager also testified that Helen Kane had saw Baby Esther’s cabaret act in 1928.”
Supreme Court Judge Edward J. McGoldrick ruled: “The plaintiff has failed to sustain either cause of action by proof of sufficient probative force”. In his opinion, the “baby” technique of singing did not originate with Kane.
As an added note, scholar Robert G.O’Meally said, Betty Boop, the WHITE CARTOON character herself had, as it were, a BLACK grandmother in her background.
Baby Esther was presumed dead by 1934, just when the lawsuit had ended.
