Everywhere I turn, some variation on this graphic is being posted by fitness blogs. This isn’t even remotely true. People really need to stop spreading this (misspelled) meme around. 
First of all, doing a specific number of jumping jacks will not burn the same number of calories for every individual. It isn’t solely the the rep count the defines how much energy you use: Your age, gender, weight, muscle mass, your heart rate, the exercise’s duration, the exercise’s intensity, how your metabolism works, how hot or cold you are, the amount of stress you’re under, how much adrenaline is going through your body - There are so many factors here. You could do the same number of jumping jacks every day and burn a different amount each time. 
Second, the math here is ridiculously off. The average person does not burn .5 calories per jumping jack. Two little jumps do not take that much energy.
According to LiveStrong:

[A] person who weighs 150 pounds will burn about 153 calories during a 30-minute moderate-intensity bout of jumping jacks. A person who weighs 200-pounds will burn approximately 204 calories during a 30-minute moderate-intensity jumping jacks workout. While you’re likely unable to perform jumping jacks for 30-minutes straight, this means a 150-pound person will burn about 5.1 calories per minute and a 200-pound person will burn about 6.8 calories per minute.

So if the average 150 pound person can do about 75 jumping jacks per minute, and you burn 153 calories within 30 minutes, you’re burning about .068 calories per jumping jack. That means it would take over 11 hours for you to (potentially) burn one pound, after doing a total of about 49,500 jumping jacks.
And third: Calories, weight loss and energy consumption do not work this way. Our bodies are complicated entities and are subject to an incredible amount of nuance. Just like how your metabolism is subjected to all the factors I listed above, so is your weight loss. Doing a certain amount of exercise will not guarantee that you lose a certain amount of weight. You need to take into account your diet, lifestyle, environment, body content, fitness routine, water retention, etc.
There is no straightforward answer when it comes to predicting the future. No one knows for sure whether you’ll lose one pound from this routine. Maybe you will. Maybe you’ll lose more. Or maybe you won’t. Maybe you’ll gain weight. What’s actually important is whether or not you enjoy your lifestyle and are feeling fulfilled, happy and confident.  Don’t get caught up in this numbers game. 

THIS. SERIOUSLY.

THIS IS IMPORTANT. 

wow.. the fucking story line. speechless. 

It’s such an important time for this film to come out.

It’s so easy for the film idustry to show people we fought against in the past as real people. But it’s something new to put a face a name and a story to the people that so many of us see as the enemy.

Please watch the trailer. This’ll stir up a lot of shit with the american public but I have a good feeling about this movie.

HOLY FREAKING NOTES.

this is my favourite version you cant stop me

THIS IS GREAT BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT WOULD IT WOULD HAVE ACTUALLY SOUNDED LIKE FROM LIKE— ELSE’A PERSPECTIVE OR SOME TINY UNNOTICEABLE FAIRY THAT MAKES NO SOUND 
REMEMBER, WHEN DISNEY CHARACTERS BURST OUT INTO SONG THEY DONT HEAR THE MUSIC, JUST THEM AND WHATS HAPPENING AROUND THEM 
AND THIS REALLY PUTS INTO PERSPECTIVE JUST HOW 
fucking weird these assholes are i mean like seriously what the fuck 

If someone sang that good out of nowhere tho I’d just let them do their thing man. You go sing to your heart’s desire, hun.

WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: USA

The Young Witches and Wizards’ Preparatory Academy of Magic is not one but two single-sex schools hidden deep within the misty green swamps of Louisiana. The schools are widely known amongst the American wizarding community for it’s infamous reputation of being the rowdiest academy for young wizards and witches resulting from a fierce inter-school rivalry cultivated through centuries of competition and trickery-wars. Students are frequenters of the headmistress and headmaster’s offices for hexing unsuspecting muggle wanderers, and hosting inter-school midnight dueling matches in the marshes. Legend has it that there is a gargantuan alligator, the unfortunate victim of various experimental (and ultimately irreversible) engorgio charms, lurking in the general vicinity of the schools, although no one has laid eyes on the beast in centuries.

DO NOT GIVE THIS TO YOUR DOGS!!!!!! I gave this product to my 12 lb. 1 year old shih tzu. 2 hours later he began throwing up and having diarrhea uncontrollably! Throwing up 2 mins apart from each other everywhere. His eyes were giant and he was shaking. We called the pet ER and they urged us to bring him in. Rushing him into the ER we were terrified and felt horrible for giving him this. He was examined and it was concluded that he went into anaphylactic shock from the allergy medicine. He was given iv fluid and epinephrine. They put a catheter in and had to observe him overnight for after shock. Thankfully he returned home the next day after a huge pet bill to save his life. If we would have waited he may not be here today. Please DO NOT give this to your dogs. IT CONTAINS grape seed extract, which is toxic to dogs!!!! Please help me signal boost so we can inform more people about this product.

Signal boosting for all my dog lovers!
