Wow Google, thank you for the stunning support! The effort you put into representing this cause is fantastic! Like, wow, this doesn’t even compare to what you did for the DW 50th!
The Google Doodle usually depicts holidays, fun anniversaries, and exciting events. More serious causes, like remembering 9/11, anti-abuse, and cancer awareness, are represented in a solemn manner with a ribbon at the bottom of the page. The ribbon is a more respectful way for Google to show support than plastering it on every page in the form of a novelty “doodle,” especially when it may be triggering to some Google users.

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.
Rough game, Quidditch.
HE BROUGHT IT ON HIMSELF
I actually found this pretty depressing because when Happy asks her if she’s boxed before, she looks so proud of herself when she says she has, and then he just kind of demeans her response by suggesting that she wasn’t a real boxer, and you see her face just drop.
Natasha Romanoff: professional to an extent.
She’s professional the whole way through — Happy is the one who isn’t just stupefyingly unprofessional but vicious in his attempt to punch her when her back was turned.
Literally. He tried to punch a woman he’d just met, before she’d gotten any gloves, before he’d explained anything else to her. Fuck anybody who thinks that Natasha’s treatment of him (which is so obviously instinct and training, not a desire to humiliate him, unlike his violence toward her) is unprofessional.
why test on animals when there are prisons full of rapists
because the prisons aren’t actually full of rapists
the rapists run free and the prisons are full of people charged with weed possession
Helping to hold down a beta werewolf isn’t the only time in this episode that Stiles shows that he’s stronger than he looks.
When Stiles grabs the lacrosse stick, Coach Finstock takes a step back as he tries to pull it out of Stiles’ grip. But Stiles jerks it back, using both hands, and then continues to hold on to it one-handed while Finstock keeps trying to pull it away. It’s only when he uses both hands—and Stiles shifts his focus entirely to the photo—that he takes it away from Stiles.
Finstock outweighs Stiles, he’s pulling the stick at an upward angle, and he’s in a position to shift his weight significantly. Stiles’ underhand grip and Finstock’s leverage advantage as he stepped back should have made it easy to take back the lacrosse stick. But maybe he wasn’t pulling too hard for fear of hurting Stiles.
I might buy that, if he weren’t clearly using his leverage to yank back hard on the stick with one hand while the other is clamped around Stiles’ wrist in such a way that his fingers are pressing down on the tendons in the fourth gif. That should have a) loosened Stiles’ grip and b) allowed Finstock to push Stiles’ hand down the stick. (DON’T. I know you want to, but DON’T. Because EUW.)
Yet even with that much advantage, Stiles not only pulls the stick back, he does it with one hand.
Somehow, Stiles’, “Better,” seems a little ominous, all of a sudden…
Well, there are a couple of ways we can look at this.
1. The new body that the Nogitsune created in order to separate himself from Stiles came with additional perks such as enhanced strength and possibly healing.
2. Stiles was never fully human to begin with and is something else that isn’t a shifter or a banshee.
3. A side effect of being sacrificed to the Nemeton and tying it to themselves. Scott is more calm and centered than before (Scott also only fully actualized himself as an Alpha AFTER the bath dip), Allison was more badass and on target as well, and Stiles was more connected to the spiritual realm all in the aftermath of being sacrificed to the Nemeton.
4. As the Avatar of the Nemeton/Emissary to the Pack Stiles gets perks in addition to his ability to do magic-like things with Mountain Ash that we’ve only seen Druids do.
5. A combination of some or all of the above.
I’m mostly leaning towards the Stiles has always been something else theory. Because it’s not only after the nogitsne or nemeton that he shows this unusual strenght. In 3a when Scott wanted his tattoo, Derek told Stiles to hold Scott down. And he did. He managed to hold down a werewolf in agonazing pain - now an argument could be made that Scott was holding back in order not to hurt Stiles but I doubt that’s the reason considering Scott was in so much pain he fainted so most likely he was also in no condition to hold back anything.
Another case is in s02 with Derek in the pool - Stiles held someone with Derek’s build in the pool for 2 hours while treading water and constantly looking around for the kanima. Not an easy feet no matter how you slice it and I think normal humans wouldn’t have made it that long for sure.
Now we have him holding Liam with Scott (notice Scott alone can’t do it) - a factor probably is that this time Liam isn’t moon-crazy but just having a fit over his former classmate but still pissed-off werewolf and Stiles manages on the same level as Scott.
Next week we see him with Derek (who’s loosing power) trying to hold Brett still on Deaton’s table. Now their both struggling with the kid, but again Stiles is on the same level as Derek who may be loosing power but he hasn’t lost it completely yet, he’s still a werewolf - I would say he’s as strong now as Scott on an average day.
I’m sure there are more case where Stiles displays similar not-quite-human abilities but even just from these here, I’d say we have a pattern.
Stiles shattered a baseball bat over Voltron wolf. Just stop and think about the force required to do that for a moment.
The spark idea has been linked to this before — see here. I didn’t think there was quite enough evidence at the time, but it’s tipping more towards a supernatural explanation every episode.

“Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.” — Anne Lamott (via splitterherzen)
