abby tehehe

YEAH THAT’S NOT YOUR NAME OR ANYTHING. once upon a blog dedicated to robert pattinson and kristen stewart started following me many years ago and I began to talk to her and her name was abby. we became the best of friends because we both loved similar things, most importantly spongebob above the two obvious celebrities, and lady gaga as well. our common interests drew us closer together and sometimes I’d stay up talking to her into the night about random shit. I grew to love her a lot and she’s got a special place in my heart because she’s still as amazing as she was when I first met her

pomulo said:

Oh, believe me I understand that. I'm trying not to really mention the whole coming out thing because I understand why people are bothered by that. I'm just annoyed that people are getting all pissed at Finn, when Santana is the one who made him defensive.

Yeah, I think Santana’s comment’s about him during her apology was uncalled for. She was apologizing, you shouldn’t continue to bully during an apology. 

pomulo said:

no need to get so feisty and unfollow me. i never said i didn't like the pictures... I loved them actually. I just feel bad that they were caught. it's going to be impossible for them to keep their relationship to themselves now. i don't know if you realized... but my other blog is robandkristen.. so I'm pretty sure I am in support of their relationship.

I know! But all the people is freaking out and wondering why the fucking hell are we happy! YES I’M HAPPY BECAUSE THEY ARE! They couldn’t keep this relationship for themselves a long time ago. And yes, I AM really sorry for them, because they can’t even walk alone. 

pomulo said:

Fair enough. I guess it just kind of bugs me how everyone is okay with Santana being nasty to so many other people... but when someone is mean to her, it's not okay. That doesn't seem fair, especially coming from someone who's so against bullying.

I understand what you mean, I know she’s a bully, and I disagree with a lot things she says to some of the characters. This was the only time I was ever mad at someone for being mean to her. Just the topic that caused it hits close to home, you know? :p

pomulo said:

I guess I'm just viewing it differently. Santana isn't going to be able to accept who she is if she can't figure out what's making her so angry inside. How do you know she would have come out? What plan did she have?

She’s angry because she has feelings, she told Brittany this. She was angry because she had feelings for her and wanted to be with her, and now that they are together, i’m sure she was going to come out soon. I don’t know what the plan was, I just see some fans saying that on my dash. But whatever it was, it was ruined. 

Sarcasm - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The word comes from the Greek ? (sarkasmos ) which is taken from the word ? meaning “to tear flesh, bite the lip in rage, sneer”. [ 1 ]

Tom piper) An Ironicall [Sarcasmus], spoken in derision of these rude wits, whych make more account of a ryming rybaud, [ 6 ] then of skill grounded upon learning and iudgment.

Dictionary.com describes the use of irony thus:

In sarcasm, ridicule or mockery is used harshly, often crudely and contemptuously, for destructive purposes. It may be used in an indirect manner, and have the form of irony, as in “What a fine musician you turned out to be!”, “It’s like you’re a whole different person now. “, and “Oh. Well then thanks for all the first aid over the years!” or it may be used in the form of a direct statement, “You couldn’t play one piece correctly if you had two assistants.” The distinctive quality of sarcasm is present in the spoken word and manifested chiefly by vocal intonation. [ 7 ]

Hostile, critical comments may be expressed in an ironic way, such as saying “don’t work too hard” to a lazy worker. The use of irony introduces an element of humour which may make the criticism seem more polite and less aggressive. Sarcasm can frequently be unnoticed in print form, oftentimes requiring the intonation or tone of voice to indicate the quip. [citation needed ]

Understanding the subtlety of this usage requires second-order interpretation of the speaker’s intentions; different parts of the brain must work together to understand sarcasm. This sophisticated understanding can be lacking in some people with certain forms of brain damage, dementia and autism (although not always), [ 8 ] and this perception has been located by MRI in the right parahippocampal gyrus. [ 9 ] [ 10 ] Research has shown that people with damage in the prefrontal cortex have difficulty understanding non-verbal aspects of language like tone, Richard Delmonico, a neuropsychologist at the University of California, Davis. told an interviewer. [ 11 ] Such research could help doctors distinguish between different types of neurodegenerative diseases, such as frontotemporal dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. according to David Salmon, a neuroscientist at the University of California, San Diego. [ 11 ]

In William Brant ‘s Critique of Sarcastic Reason. sarcasm is hypothesized to develop as a cognitive and emotional tool that adolescents use in order to test the borders of politeness and truth in conversation. Sarcasm recognition and expression both require the development of understanding forms of language, especially if sarcasm occurs without a cue or signal (e.g. a sarcastic tone or rolling the eyes). Sarcasm is argued to be more sophisticated than lying because lying is expressed as early as the age of three, but sarcastic expressions take place much later during development (Brant, 2012). According to Brant (2012, 145-6), sarcasm is

(a) form of expression of language often including the assertion of a statement that is disbelieved by the expresser (e.g. where the sentential meaning is disbelieved by the expresser), although the intended meaning is different from the sentence meaning. The recognition of sarcasm without the accompaniment of a cue develops around the beginning of adolescence or later. Sarcasm involves the expression of an insulting remark that requires the interpreter to understand the negative emotional connotation of the expresser within the context of the situation at hand. Irony, contrarily, does not include derision, unless it is sarcastic irony. The problems with these definitions and the reason why this dissertation does not thoroughly investigate the distinction between irony and sarcasm involves the ideas that: (1) people can pretend to be insulted when they are not or pretend not to be insulted when they are seriously offended; (2) an individual may feel ridiculed directly after the comment and then find it humorous or neutral thereafter; and (3) the individual may not feel insulted until years after the comment was expressed and considered.

Cultural perspectives on sarcasm vary widely with more than a few cultures and linguistic groups finding it offensive to varying degrees. Thomas Carlyle despised it: “Sarcasm I now see to be, in general, the language of the devil; for which reason I have long since as good as renounced it”. [ 12 ] Fyodor Dostoyevsky. on the other hand, recognized in it a cry of pain: Sarcasm, he said, was “usually the last refuge of modest and chaste-souled people when the privacy of their soul is coarsely and intrusively invaded.” [ 13 ] RFC 1855. a collection of guidelines for Internet communications. includes a warning to be especially careful with it as it “may not travel well”. A professional translator has advised that international business executives “should generally avoid sarcasm in intercultural business conversations and written communications” because of the difficulties in translating sarcasm [ 14 ]

In English, sarcasm in amateur actors is often telegraphed with kinesic /prosodic cues [ 15 ] by speaking more slowly and with a lower pitch. Similarly, Dutch uses a lowered pitch; sometimes to such an extent that the expression is reduced to a mere mumble. But other research shows that there are many ways that real speakers signal sarcastic intentions. One study found that in Cantonese. sarcasm is indicated by raising the fundamental frequency of one’s voice. [ 16 ]

Though in the English language there is no standard accepted method to denote irony or sarcasm in written conversation, several forms of punctuation have been proposed. Among the oldest and frequently attested are the percontation point —furthered by Henry Denham in the 1580s—and the irony mark —furthered by Alcanter de Brahm in the 19th century. Both of these marks were represented visually by a ? backwards question mark (unicode U+2E2E). A more recent example is the snark mark. Each of these punctuation marks are primarily used to indicate that a sentence should be understood at a second level. A bracketed exclamation point or question mark as well as scare quotes are also sometimes used to express irony or sarcasm.

In certain Ethiopic languages, sarcasm and unreal phrases are indicated at the end of a sentence with a sarcasm mark called temherte slaq. a character that looks like an inverted exclamation point ?. [ 17 ]

In subtitling for the hearing impaired, sarcasm and irony is often shown by the use of the “(!)” icon. [ 18 ]

He didn't really threaten her with her sexuality though... what he said was true. What else could he have said? That is the source of her anger, right?

Yes, What he said was true, but she would of came out eventually. It’s very hard for someone to finally come to terms of who they are, and than the next step was coming out. She had plan, and he ruined it for her.

Rival may have roasted Keurig’s coffee-pod DRM

Mother Parkers is getting in on Keurig’s new brewing machines, whether Keurig likes it or not.


Back in March, Keurig announced plans to lock down its popular coffee pod system in an effort to make third-party pod makers pay for a license. But the company’s plans may be foiled. A press release last week from Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee suggests that the Keurig “DRM” used to lock out third parties has been cracked and that Mother Parkers is now making coffee pods that can work in Keurig’s brewing machines.

New Keurig machines reportedly require pods to have a special “ink marker” on their foil top, according to The Verge. If that marking isn’t detected, the machine will display an “Oops!” message and refuse to do anything further.
The Mother Parkers press release states that the company “will launch a new version of the RealCup capsule that is compatible with Keurig Green Mountain’s K2.0 brewer scheduled for launch later this year.” The release quotes Bill VandenBygaart, Mother Parkers’ vice president of business development, as saying that the company’s “new technology” means that “consumers will be the ultimate winners by having the best tasting coffees and teas available.”

Is that really all it was? No one even heard... Finn had the right to stand up for himself. I guess I just don't see the big deal?

The big deal is that he threatened her with her sexuality, and its not something to joke around with. By the look on her face she was terrified. I know she’s a bully, but he really could of used something else to say back, using her sexuality wasn’t necessary.
