states-of-panic

6

So Lego Magazine put out “official stats” for the Toa and I think there’s some important lessons here:

  • The only 10 is Tahu’s luck.  Tahu is literally the Super Toa-Level Luckster and I’m Dangan Ronpa trash, moving on.
  • Speaking of luck Lewa’s only got 5 so I guess we know who’s getting spidered.
  • I love how Lewa’s intelligence is just a full two points lower than anyone else.  Looking for the team dumbass? Don’t worry, Lewa has you covered.
  • “Fear Factor” I’m assuming is like, how likely they are to freak out, and, Lewa, pal, get it together, you are officially the Shaggy of this Scooby Gang at this point.
  • (Also important: Tahu’s scaredy-cat rating is only a point less than Lewa’s.)
  • (If it means the opposite, like how brave they are, then I guess all the Toa are just in a constant state of panic?)
  • How are they defining special abilities here.  Like, Gali can summon waves and shit, I think that’s worth more than Onua’s repertoire of “hit the ground with a hammer”.
  • God I just realized Lewa has the lowest special stat too.  Lewa is garbage.  Literally his only advantage is weaponry and I’m pretty sure that was a sympathy point.  We all know Pohatu and his boomerangs outclass him.

Important conclusions we can draw:

  • I continue to be a nerd who’s too invested in these elemental robots and their completely arbitrary numbers and I’m okay with that

anonymous asked:

How would Karasuno + Bokuto react to their s/o fainting in a public place?

Combining some of these bc I feel like a lot of their reactions would be similar?

ie; alarmed

Hope you enjoy!

  • Daichi and Sugawara would both be the most calm about the situation. Not to say that they wouldn’t be beyond worried, they would just be able to do what needs to be done the most efficiently. They’d follow the medical protocol for just about any situation that might apply to their s/o’s current predicament. In fact, they’d probably be the most overbearing as well, insisting that they ride in the ambulance with you once the paramedics arrived. Their s/o better be ready for some serious doting once they come to.
  •  Asahi, Yamaguchi and Hinata would all be in varying states of panic and self-doubt as soon as their s/o passed out. They’d be asking various strangers about what to do and flitting all over the place, afraid to touch their s/o because they wouldn’t know what could hurt them. Of course, they’d be blaming themselves for not noticing that their s/o had been feeling bad, or that their s/o hadn’t told them something was wrong. As soon as their s/o came to though, they’d be grabbing their hands/arms/face and apologizing profusely while swearing their love.
  •  Bokuto, Tanaka, and Nishinoya would be all frantic about what to do about their unconscious s/o. They’d be holding their s/o’s hand the whole time and would be incredibly overprotective as to who approaches them while their s/o is unconscious. They’d even be wary of the paramedics (”you aren’t a doctor, how do I know that you know what you’re talking about??”), but would relent pretty quickly because of how worried they were. Again, they’d also be the ones to argue their way into the back of the ambulance. Once their s/o came to, they’d be peppering them with kisses and showering them with affections.
  •  Kageyama and Tsukishima would be externally calm about the whole situation, but would be internally panicking harder than Asahi could ever hope to. They’d be very twitchy about the state of their s/o, hovering and generally getting in anyone trying to help’s way. It wouldn’t be intentional, but they’d be so worried they just wouldn’t be able to help it. Once their s/o came to, they’d probably tear up, if not full on cry. Of course, they’d deny it all afterwards if their s/o ever brought it up again. 

The music your parents aren’t used to.

I love how this is Taylor’s fifth album and she is still so unpredictably awesome. We are in a constant state of panic because none of us know what or when she will attack us with awesomeness next. Like, how does she do it. 

In Trash We Trust - Part 3: Trash Fest VI Saturday

On Saturday, the next round starts with the British-based, multi-national Apollo’s Child. They are truly Trash Fest children: The band came into being after Finnish singer Jaakko Turunen ran into Night By Night/Sisters Of Mercy guitarist Ben Christo in 2010 at the Mama Trash All Star jam, and the two became friends. Their sound betrays many classic rock influences, ranging from The Cult to Queen, and Turunen has certainly heard one or two Whitesnake records in his life, while guitarist Daniele Panza seems to have graduated from the Eddie Van Halen school of rock. The songs that will make up their first album, among them the dark and moving “Bend”, are good, well-crafted and melancholy, though not mind-blowingly, fantastically great. However, they go down well with the crowd, but that might be also down to Turunen’s convincing showmanship.
