Honestly it’s a crime that these selfies never got published.
A reminder to all who haven’t heard: THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS WILL RIDE AGAIN…FUELED BY NETFLIX…IN 2016.
From the announcement via Mashable:Netflix and Scholastic Media announced in a press statement that the new series will use CGI animation to feature a “modernized Ms. Frizzle" and an "inventive high-tech bus” — so it looks like the companies are not afraid to take chances and make mistakes (and probably get messy in the process). The very 21st-century show will also focus on modern tech innovations, including robotics and wearables.
“The all-new episodes also leverage advancements in animation, science and technology in a way that will delight a new generation of young viewers, and like its predecessor, will help kids around the world discover the magic and value of exploration and innovation,” a press statement reads.
The Magic School Bus is the longest-running kids’ science series in history, first airing on PBS in 1994 and continuing in syndication for 18 consecutive years. It has even earned an Emmy Award. (Undoubtedly for Liz the Lizard’s acting.)
“Magic School Bus, the old version, is remarkably popular on Netflix,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer told The New York Times. “It teaches science in a way that transcends generations.”
Scholastic Media has not yet announced if the original Ms. Frizzle, Lily Tomlin, will return to voice the character.
And from a similar announcement via CNN:“To do an animated show that has actually encouraged young people to pursue careers in the sciences or teaching makes us very, very happy.”
— Forte, President, Scholastic Media
2016. The Magic School Bus. The original ship of the imagination.

Let’s be real, EVERYONE wants a piece of Amber, don’t matter who it is!
I’m gonna depress the hell out of all of you. ready? ok go
so, that “stop devaluing feminized work post”
nice idea and all
but the thing is, as soon as a decent…
The grass ain’t always greener.
ok. wow. just no words.
It’s another case of sheer ignorance. He thought it was funny and probably would have laughed at his sister or one of his friends because he doesn’t realize we can be KILLED and or maimed in those encounters. It’s not about the grass not being greener. It’s choosing someone who get’s it.
White men will never be there for WoC. You can date him for x amount of years, he can say I love you x amount of times but when it comes down to a matter of your existence as a person of color - They. don’t. give. a. shit.
That goes for anyone dating a white person. Don’t fool yourself into believing they’re different.
The malicious, misogynistic website called Return of Kings is known for writing articles advising western men to seek Asian women for reasons that are racist, and sexist. A lot of these western men claim they’re “emasculated by western women/feminism” and the only way to restore their masculinity is by having sex, dating, marrying and/or dominating a “submissive” Asian woman. This was brilliantly explained in Sunny Woan’s White Sexual Imperialism: A Theory of Asian Feminist Jurisprudence (I advise everyone to read it).
Anyway, here are their reasons why western men should seek Asian women:
Asian women have held close all the family values passed on from their mothers and grandmothers before them. Values that tell women to respect their man and be submissive to them. Being feminine is an ancestral cultural characteristic that most Asian women have, one that most western women wrongly interpret as slavery. Asian women have learned to talk softly to their husbands and be submissive to them; they actually HEAR what you have to say, not just pretend and then do what they want.
2. Traditional values
You can expect to eat a meal from the hands of your lovely Asian lady every single day, even if she also has a full-time job and works hard at it. Your house will be spotlessly clean and well-taken care of. Try asking a western woman to cook for you on a daily basis and you’ll probably end up with a bump on your head from the flying ashtray, or with a dreadful sex-starvation week!
3. They willingly play the “wife” role
Asian women are the pillars of the family, managing and organizing the household perfectly, but are smart enough to let you lead and have the reigns of the family. They take care of their children and love helping their husbands any way they can. They do the same for their partners, so even if you have an Asian woman as a girlfriend, you can still taste a slice of heaven in your everyday life. Generally speaking, an Asian woman has been taught she needs to make her husband happy and proud, with his relatives and friends, to have her as his wife, so she does her best to not let you down.
Most Asian women are not only family-oriented and respectful towards others. They are also caring and love themselves, too. They will make sacrifices to have a good shape (and maintain it no matter what) and please their man with it. As for their beauty, it seems that western men are particularly attracted by their slender figures (as opposed to the overweight body shapes of the west), shiny black hair, and appealing eyes.
5. Financially responsible
They are usually great money handlers, which is a huge plus when looking for a woman to start a family with. Your Asian wife will ask you each and every time she wants to spend shared money on the house. Try asking an American or European woman to do the same—Her voice will rise to the stratosphere if you try to reign in her shopping.
6. They behave
Cheating is not an option for an Asian woman. Marriage is too sacred to them to dishonor it like that.
7. They never refuse to have sex
They never give the cold shoulder to their feeling-horny hubbies. They will still make love with you, even if they are not in the greatest mood for 1000+1 Arabian nights.
8. They adapt quickly
They can act like a Western lady in particular ways without losing their subservient nature.
9. They avoid direct confrontations
They avoid conflicts and arguments with their other half and pursue a harmonious relationship, first and foremost.
