Benedict Cumberbatch as Julian Assange in The Fifth Estate
Apple Q&A - Moffat sends Benedict
actual 6 year oldinto a giggle fit [x]
My baby brother’s first girlfriend recently confessed to thinking they were actually a boy. I asked my brother if this bothered him. His response was:
"Well, yeah. If I had have known they were a boy when we were going out, I would have said I had a boyfriend, not a girlfriend."
He was ten.
The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”
"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.
William S. Baring-Gould wrote a pastiche biography of his headcanons for Sherlock Holmes called Sherlock Holmes of Baker Street in 1962, and it subsequently became widely accepted as fanon among Sherlockians. Baring-Gould posited that a third brother would be required to maintain the estate of those country squires:
As the eldest of the three brothers, he would, of course, inherit the family holdings in Yorkshire. His future, so far as Siger Holmes was concerned, was settled—Sherrinford was simply to be a country squire.
But what DID happen to Sherrinford in BBC Sherlock? Sherlock’s parents seem rather ordinary, not country squires. I really hope we find out and that this is not a throwaway line.
