There was a split second there where his like, “wait, what? bro what are you doing?” 
On more serious note, PTSD dogs for veterans are so fucking therapeutic. They’re like the one person you can spill your guts to and never worry about ever being judged or have that secret divulged. There are times when I definitely prefer the company of a dog over a human. 

Therapy animals save lives.

These dogs are even still so much more amazing. They check rooms before their handler enters, so they can clear it to help the person feel safe. Like in the gif, they are there when panic attacks or nightmares occur, to be something for the person to help ground themselves on, or yes just to turn on the lights. Even more amazing, many people are able to reduce their medication when they have a PTSD service dog there to help them. These dogs are useful for not just veterans, but also victims of abuse, accident trauma, natural disasters, and others. Their training allows them to be useful in situations where medical assistance is needed, as well. Some PTSD dogs are trained to recognize repetitive behaviours in handlers, and signal the handler to break the repetition and stopping the behaviour and possibly injury. 
Service dogs in general are just awesome. Remember to respect any that you see out in public. They are not there for you to walk up to and play with, even the puppies!

"He had one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced, or seemed to face, the whole external world for an instant and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor. It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself."

Now You Know (Source)

This is an important event in history, especially Canadian and feminist history. So I’m going to tell you more about it.
1) The shooter had been rejected from Ecole Polytechnique prior to the shooting. He blamed this on these female students, claiming that they were feminists who ruined his life.
2) In the first classroom he entered, he demanded the men leave before shooting at the women. No man attempted to stop him as they left. Take that as you will. (Later on, several men did get injured trying to stop him in the hallways.)
3) In his suicide letter, he believed that feminists were attempting to be more powerful than men, and were trying to take men’s rights away.4) Feminists were actually blamed by some for the massacre. The line of logic was “if feminists didn’t make women’s rights an issue, Levine wouldn’t have wanted to kill feminists!” Victim blaming at its finest.
5) The mainstream news media often did not publicize the outrage from women’s groups, and often preferred those who took a calm approach. Ironic, that.
6) Despite him literally having a hit list of feminist icons in his final letter, several newscasters questioned whether or not the shooting was a sexist act, some even denying the idea outright.
8) Many memorials for the victims have been created, and rightly so; however, some prominent ones were erected in poor neighbourhoods where many Native women were killed every day in the same time period as the shooting (see: Marker of Change, Vancouver) (see: Missing Women, Vancouver). Basically, white feminism happened. 
The entire event was nothing short of a tragedy, and I recommend that everyone read up on it and the resulting aftermath. It’s… interesting to see how the media tried to turn it into a random act of psychopathy instead of what it was (we know better now, luckily). The reactions (memorials, etc) to the deaths of these 14 White, middle class women as compared to the deaths of 60+ Native, lower class women are also “interesting” to compare. (By interesting, I mean infuriating.)

Interesting to note - his suicide note listed 19 feminists he wished he had also killed. He wrote:
"Nearly died today. The lack of time (because I started too late) has allowed these radical feminists to survive.Alea Jacta Est.”
So people who say “kill all radfems,” that’s quite some company you keep.

stupixart asked: I am working a book about physical comedy, and I am looking for good sources of Chaplin images. I see you have the copyright info from Roy Expert, and I know about them. Can you suggest sources for quality photos from his earlier days? Either with permissions or unrestricted?

chaplinfortheages:

That’s great you are writing a book, I will certainly pass the word after completion, keep me updated I am particularly interested in the Artistry of his movement and physicality that he brought to the tramp.

I don’t know if you are familiar with Dan Kamin, he is an expert in pantomime, he is the premiere source in that field, he is an expert in Charlie’s  Artistry & movement and the way he communicated with the audience.  He actually coached Robert Downey Jr for his role in the film “Chaplin” & Johnny Depp’s “roll dance” in the film Benny & Joon.

Dan Wrote an excellent  book in 2008 “Artistry & Movement - The comedy of Charlie Chaplin. I have read it numerous times.

Sources of his images - First I would contact the Official Chaplin Office in Paris France. Kate Guyonvarch is the head of Roy Export Office and is very kind and helpful with anything Chaplin. They do in fact own everything doing with images from his films 1918 on, they also have the copyright on his image.

Images from his earlier films I’m not sure who owns them as they were in the public domain for years and she will be able to guide you.  Most likely I would think is the authors of books, if that is the case I can recommend many of the books I have read. I f you look at the website Chaplin Picture Database you will see a thousand images that they have in their Archives.

I don’t have the copyright but with the Chaplin Office but am authorized have to post his images. I contacted them shortly after I started my blog not to have any issues regarding.

Thank you for coming to me for help on this. I have been studying him for the last 3 years, it has been almost a full time endeavor. 

I look forward to reading your book.

Kind Regards

Anne Keady

As I have mentioned I love the fact he was so ahead of his time.  Most people back in this time period went along to get along. He did not and he did sometimes suffer for it, but that is how we gain progress, people brave enough to stand on their convictions.
