A zombie-bitten father tries to save his infant daughter in this bittersweet short film
So you’ve been bitten by a zombie. So long, conscious brain activity, hello craving for human meat. But the protagonist of the short film Cargo has bigger problems than his impending demise: he has to find a way to save his infant daughter, even if he has to die first to do it.
Directed by Ben Howling and Yolanda Ramke, Cargo was a finalist in Tropfest Australia 2013. It’s also a rather clever take on zombie genre tropes, with a story that isn’t about the survival of self, but the survival of another.
When I saw him walking with the balloon I lost it
Completely lost it
omg once they realized he was her father, they buried his body
Holy effectiveness, Ambien. My 10 year old daughter had to escort me to my bed because I was in danger of falling over. I vaguely remember in nursing school, counseling a little old lady about taking her sleeping pill in her bedroom, preferably in bed, for safety’s sake. Now I get it.
But here’s to good zzzzz’s. There have been entirely too few of those lately.
We survived it a few weeks ago. They came to our unit 3 times.
Just one more excellent reason to work nights.

really tho straight guys will go on and on about how uncomfortable it makes them when gay guys hit on them but lets be fucking honest how many times have u seen a guy continue to hit on another guy after hes visibly uncomfortable vs. how many times a straight guy has continued to hit on a girl after shes visibly uncomfortable
This needs more notes
“I am pro-life,” she told a University of Texas at Brownsville crowd on Tuesday. “I care about the life of every child: every child that goes to bed hungry, every child that goes to bed without a proper education, every child that goes to bed without being able to be a part of the Texas dream, every woman and man who worry about their children’s future and their ability to provide for that future. I care about life and I have a record of fighting for people above all else.”
“This isn’t about protecting abortion,” Davis explained in the same appearance. “It’s about protecting women. It’s about trusting women to make good decisions for themselves and empowering them with the tools to do that.”
Anti-choicers are violently pro-life, right up to the second a child is born. It’s heartening to see Wendy Davis taking them on like this.
