purgs

“God, it was good to let go, let the tight mask fall off, and the bewildered, chaotic fragments pour out. It was the purge, the catharsis.”

― Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

Wanda Maximoff, better known as Scarlet Witch, is a native of the Eastern European country of Sokovia who grew up in the company of her twin brother, Pietro. In an effort to help purge their country of strife, the twins agreed to undergo experiments with the Chitauri Scepter under the supervision of Wolfgang von Strucker’s HYDRA cell, and achieved superpowers as a result, with Wanda attaining various telekinetic and energy manipulating abilities.

Has anyone else noticed similarities between Assassin’s Creed III and the Star Wars’ Original Trilogy? A young boy, Connor/Luke lives in a rural place that gets burned down, during which his mother/aunt & uncle die(s) prompting the beginning of his journey. He is guided to an old Mentor/Grand Master of the Assassins/Jedi, who lives in exile, who at first doesn’t want to train Connor/Luke, but then agrees to. Many years before, the Assassins/Jedi were hunted down and wiped out by their enemies, the Templars/Sith; and Connor/Luke’s father, Haytham/Darth Vader, who was (meant to become) a(n) Assassin/Jedi, but chose the enemy’s side instead, helped carry out that purge. Eventually, Achilles/Yoda passes away from an old age, and Connor/Luke is the last of his kind, seeking to bring the Templars/Sith down, and re-build the Assassin/Jedi Order.
Oh, and the entire thing takes place in the backdrop of a war between a powerful Empire and a (newly-found) Republic.
(1) Darth Vader’s role can sort of be divided between Shay and Haytham, as Shay was the one who turned on everyone he knew.
(3) Edward Kenway is totally the Han Solo of the AC universe, right down to that cool vest he wears, with Jackdaw being his Millenium Falcon.

#Regrann from @raspy_rawls - For all those mainstream media watchers.. ♻ @fr3volution If you are like thousands of others, you have no doubt seen an iconic photo of Baltimore burning. The image began circulating throughout social media after a local Fox affiliate in Memphis, Tennessee apparently first ran it. Some other mainstream media outlets even shared the image, using it with headlines that said “Baltimore is Burning” and referenced a “purge”. The only problem is it wasn’t from Baltimore.

That’s right, the image was taken from Venezuela, not Baltimore. But for those who accepted Fox’s rendition of the story uncritically, the image became burned into their minds as being a scene of devastation in Baltimore.

On April 27th, local FOX13 claimed the photo of the fires burning everything except the golden arches at McDonalds was “Baltimore In Flames.” Reverb Nation notes that one viewer noticed the image and placed it right away. They thought the image looked familiar, and pointed out that the story on the CVS burning was not Baltimore at all. “Now I understand why people mock Fox news so much…
After racking up tens of thousands of views, Fox acknowledged the “error,” saying: “Our team didn’t fact check the picture the way we should have.” Just imagine if Fox hadn’t been called out on this? How many more stations would continue to run it as an actual image of Baltimore in flames? Just imagine how much else they are lying to us about!

Today in 1415 John Wycliffe was declared a heretic at the Council of Constance. His remains were later exhumed and burned, along with his books.

 John Wycliffe was an English theologian who was critical of the clergy and the sacraments. He advocated the translation of the Bible into the vernacular languages, and supervised its translation into English, a project to which he contributed. This leaf, from the last quarter of the 14th century, is from a Wycliffite Bible that survived the purge. It contains text from Acts XVI.

while The DJ can become pure energy and enter electronics, cables, etc, they refrain from using the city’s power grid as an otherwise obvious fast-travel system because they know where almost all of purg’s power comes from and diving into circuitry within city limits means not only swimming in that but also potentially running smack into this fucking thing

I deleted my old hunter to make room for a new character (and here’s hoping the ticket works and I get the name I want). I purged her bags of anything valuable before deleting and discovered that I have a Warder’s Shirt in my possession. I know these are a scarce item these days and I figured I’d offer it up at a discounted price of 15k (they usually sell around 21-25k) to a follower before I gouge for its usual price. If anyone’s interested, send me a message.**

** character must be Wyrmrest Accord Alliance. If it’s Horde, I will have to coordinate with you to put it up on the AH at the right time, and will up the price to 16.5k to account for the AH cut.

last night I discovered that my very favorite thraina fic was taken down on all mediums that it was up on because the author had purged all of their accounts

why must the universe be so cruel to me
