Pictures Worth More Than 1000 Words (20 images)

Week by week, we look for the most interesting pictures to present to you. Today, we have found an incredibly popular tumblr blog that reblogs some of the most thought-provoking pictures. The kind of pictures that hold book-length stories within them - ones that cannot simply be captured in anything less than 1000 words. 

From cows in bathtubs to kittens sleeping with turtles, sit back, relax, and enjoy this week's eclectic collection of pictures that deserve nothing less than a whole essay. Maybe they'll even inspire you. Some of them sure are inspiring to us. It's fun to imagine the way this cow got into the bathtub honestly. Maybe its other cow friends are helping bathe it because it strained its ankle playing soccer earlier that day. Can you say for sure that this didn't happen? No, you can't.

government filibuster wendy davis texas sb 5 Rick Perry politics failbook g rated - 7606991616

On Monday June 24th, the Texas House of Representatives overwhelmingly to approve a bill that would close 37 of the state's 42 abortion clinics, effectively leaving hundreds of thousands of women in the southern United States without access to proper abortion care. The bill was subsequently sent to the state Senate where it looked like it was sure to become law.

Much like voting for elected officials, voting on bills has a deadline. Before midnight on a certain date, government bodies must pass a vote on whether or not the bill should become law. Enter the filibuster: a devious way of delaying a vote past the required time by taking the floor in a session of government and essentially talking about it until the deadline passes.

Seriously, you can literally blab for so long that the deadline passes and the bill dies.

Wendy Davis, a Texas state senator, did just that. Starting at 11:00 A.M. on Tuesday June 25th, Davis took the floor of the state Senate and began a speech about the dangers of the bill passing and becoming law.

She didn't stop speaking for 13 hours. If she paused to eat lunch or even take a bathroom break, her filibuster would have ended and the bill vote would have began. At 12:02 in the morning on June 26th, she ended her speech, 120 seconds after the senate session ended. Goodbye, bill.

Filibusters: one of the best ways to troll the government.
