THE TWELVE HOUSES

What is the significance of the houses?

There are 12 astrological houses and each one represents a different experience that manifests in a person’s life. By noting where the planets are placed in the person’s birth chart, it can tell us the area of experience or challenge that will be strongly emphasized in a person’s life. The house size will greatly vary from one house to the other unlike the twelve zodiac signs where each one are 30 degrees wide. This will give the person a better understanding of their self and why they excel in certain areas of their life while they tend to be challenged in other areas. If a zodiac sign shows hose a planet expressed itself, then the house of the birth chart will reveal where these energies play out.

What kind of stuff do I need to keep at home to have a decent first aid kit on hand? The packs my family used always just had Advil, Tylenol, various band-aids, ice packs, Neosporin, alcohol wipes, and Hydrogen peroxide, but I had to use the one at work the other day and I didn't even recognize what half the shit in it was, let alone know how to use it. I looked on Google but the lists seem to vary on what's necessary. Also, where should I go to find out what I'm doing with the supplies?

So, here’s a real fucking handy list of first aid kit supplies (for a family of four) from the Red Cross [link]. It’s recommended that you also customize your kit according to your and your family’s needs. For instance, adding a list of emergency contact numbers (911 is a kind of no-shit-sherlock thing, but do you have Poison Control’s phone number memorized?), listing your Primary Care Physician’s contact info, list of current prescriptions for family members, and extra medication. Everything should be clearly labeled, FYI (makes it all a bunch damn easier in emergencies).

As for how to learn how to use the kit, there’s a bunch of options that are legit. You could check to see if your local park district, firehouse, police station, or community college offers/hosts free or discount first aid courses. There’s also a first aid course locator on the Red Cross’s website [link]. The Red Cross also has an app for Android/iPhone that covers basic first aid techniques [link]. Plus you can always read a book on first aid. You can even keep it in the first aid kit, which may benefit as books can cause paper cuts that can really fucking hurt. :-)

Teacup Demons

Teacup Demons are a small breed of beast, usually around nine inches high, with horns that can vary in size from a few inches to over a foot. They generally have short, red fur and long black or brown horns, and their eyes can be anywhere from red to black. They have delightfully plump bodies and love receiving belly rubs.

Usually pretty feisty in temperament, but easy to train. While they are mischievous, Teacup Demons all have a wealth of knowledge concerning summoning, working with devils and demons and can act as ambassadors during spirit workings. Teacup Demons can help out in other magical workings as well- but if you’re going to perform any banishing magic, please make sure your Demon is out of the room! It takes them ages to get back if you aren’t careful.

Teacup Demons can eat nearly anything, but they prefer flapjacks with butter and syrup. They are all fluent in Latin and a few other choice dead languages. Sometimes they only speak in lines from Crowley’s “the Book of Lies,” but these phases pass quickly. While they are ancient, knowledgeable creatures, they enjoy a good nap in the sun and eating your table scraps. Teacup Demons love to observe everything, so they will be more than pleased to ride around with you for the day on your shoulder or in one of those little lap dog purses.

What Did Charles Darwin Think Of Religion?

In 1859, the English amateur naturalist Charles Darwin published his seminal work, On the Origin of Species, or, to give its full title, On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. He summarized his theory of natural selection with: “As many more individuals of each species are born than can possibly survive; and as, consequently, there is a frequently recurring struggle for existence, it follows that any being, if it vary however slightly in any manner profitable to itself, under the complex and sometimes varying conditions of life, will have a better chance of surviving, and thus be naturally selected. From the strong principle of inheritance, any selected variety will tend to propagate its new and modified form.” Darwin never mentions God’s hand in his theory…

what is aromantic? don't you mean asexual?

nope,i’m aromantic which means i lack romantic attraction? i guess tbqh i’m still questioning my romantic / sexual attraction in general but there are also a lot more things that explain it if you look it up on google or something 

actual definition for you incase you’re too lazy?

An aromantic is a person who experiences little or no romantic attraction to others. Where romantic people have an emotional need to be with another person in a romantic relationship, aromantics are often satisfied with friendships and other non-romantic relationships. What distinguishes romantic relationships from a non-romantic relationships can vary diversely, but often includes physical connection.

The aromantic attribute is usually considered to be innate and not a personal choice, just as the lack of sexual attraction is innate to asexuals. It is important to note that aromantics do not lack emotional/personal connection, but simply have no instinctual need to develop connections of a romantic nature. 

Aromantics can have needs for just as much empathetic support as romantics, but these needs can be fulfilled in a platonic way. It is possible for an aromantic individual to be involved in, and enjoy, a devoted relationship with another person, some sexual people are aromantic too.

Stop it!

daisies-cats-and-spacemen replied to your post “What if Sandor doesn’t actually go to the King’s Landing’s brothels to…”

Why do you do that to yourself? It’s too sad

Sorry, didn’t mean to bum everyone out, LOL. But I was suspicious when Varys made that claim in the books, because I always felt like Sandor wasn’t all that sexually experienced, and it wasn’t until that scene in this season’s premiere with the Unsullied guy that I realized “ohhhhhh THAT’s probably what he’s really doing in those brothels…” ;-)

(and honestly I’d rather imagine that than Sandor rage-fucking some poor random girl into the dirt…)

Psst. I’m making something for you.

This is how I gild covers. Dip pen and ink. The ink itself is interesting because it’s essentially metallic powder in a binding fluid, meaning it behaves less like a dye (like traditional inks) and more like, well, gold and glue.

It’s also hell on pen nibs. I use a flexible nib instead of a brush because if, say, I’m not being lazy and using stamps (I wholeheartedly advocate laziness) a flexible nib allows for both precision and varying width, but lacks the extreme sensitivity of a brush.

Simply: if I use a pen with a flexible nib, I can sneeze without accidentally gilding the ceiling, myself, and splattering an entire book. Not that that’s ever happened or anything. Nope. No.

I also use a glass pen body because I’m fancy and ridiculous.

Headcanon: Around the time the triplets are 15, Leslie tells them she doesn’t want real presents, because A) one wall of their house is covered in flags, B) stephen is the best with money and Wesley is the worst, so their store bought presents vary, so they start competing over who can give Leslie the best “accomplishment present” which turns them into competitive super nerds

Anders and his beard

From the light stubble of season 1 to the full ginger beard of season 2.

From the shaved beard slowly growing at the beginning of season 3 to the short beard of the season, and series, finale.

Before, during, after the Hobbit (pickups included).

Anders’s look varies around the Hobbit shooting. I love this crossover.

chirolanguage thoughts

nonverbal/mute mechs communicating chirolingually! mute mechs who were chirolingual but became empurata victims and created chirolingual dialects for empurata victims!!
separate dialects of empurata chirolanguage varying on number of claws, dexterity of claws.. two claws? three? bendy ones, twisty ones, etc?  

chirolanguage and sign language varying with regions of cybertron just like sign language irl!! mechs creating a name for themselves in chirolanguage that is their own specific motion (a la sign language in irl d/Deaf/HOH communities)!! 

mechs who alternate between chirolanguage and sign language!! a dialect of sign language for empurata victims!!! 

I’ll keep reblogging relevant and well written Alberta Election posts until I go to bed. Its rare when Canadian issues get reasonable popular, and I want to promote as many of these posts as possible.

I love these crowns (called misango but words vary) worn by the Bapende, Bayaka and Basuku of the Democratic Republic of Congo

“Anar’alah Belore.” The Dawnsworn Covenant has opened its doors to recruitment!

“The Dawnsworn Covenant is a conglomerate of Alliance races bound by oath and a sense of unity under the banner of Duchess Aelorelle Dawnsworn, the Duchess of the Dawn’s Rest and the Grand Mistress of the Dawnsworn Covenant. The Covenant has several purposes: to preserve and study the unique cultures of the Alliance peoples, to mentor and guide, to give alms to those left orphaned, widowed and without a home by the conflicts of Azeroth, and to take up arms against any threat to the Grand Alliance.”

What is “The Dawnsworn Covenant?”

The Dawnsworn Covenant is a guild (Wyrmrest Accord: Alliance) comprised of colorful characters and diveristy united and driven by the philanthropist goals of high elf matriarch, Aelorelle Dawnsworn. The Covenant can be considered a “do-all” guild, housing varying divisions for the sake of catering to different roleplay that is commonly sought. Why do we do this? To bring people with differing roleplay preferences together. Said divisions are listed below –

  • [The Dawn Battalion] - The Dawn Battalion is the military force of the Dawnsworn Covenant. Lieutenant Commander Sigrid Naraan is the C.O. of the entirety of the Dawn Battalion. Chosen for her combat prowess and austerity, she orders the melee forces of the Dawn Battalion, but the entirety of the Dawn Battalion forces will not move unless by her command. The Dawn Battalion is comprised of its own Ranger Company with Ranger-Warden Keladriel Ravencrown at the helm. The Dawn Battalion is also pleased to announce its RP-PVP division: “Might of the Lioness!” This is a squad of soldiers who have proven themselves competent and stalwart in the face of adversity, led by Knight-Champion Dominick Parker and the “Lady of the Lance,” Marshal Rosalyn Proudhymn. (Yes, we will help you gear and even learn your class!)
  • [The Sanctified] -  The Sanctified are the spiritual amongst us who strive for a life of righteous piety. Some worship the Light, others Elune. They guide us in prayer and offer healing of the soul when we are otherwise weakened or pained. The High Chaplain of the Sanctified is the speaker of those who worship the Light. The current presiding High Chaplain is Sir Hohenheim Stormheardt. The Sanctified are tasked with holding sermons and becoming members of the Church of the Light, while Elune worshippers are tasked with joining the Sisterhood of Elune.
  • [Vale Scholars] - The Vale Scholars are the non-combatives of the Covenant, a division filled to the brim with a score of mathematicians, scientists, articifers and philosophers. The funding for their research comes from the coin of the Duchess herself, who has an interest in their dabbling and insatiable curiosity in whatever secrets they may unlock. They are the go-to for solving riddles, studying artifacts and histories, inventions and tinkering. 
  • [Lady’s Retinue] - This is a sect more suited for those interested in “house RP.” Handmaidens, stewards, seneschals and companions would normally apply for this rank. The presiding matriarch or patriarch of their noble house might also be sorted into this rank to work closely with Duchess Dawnsworn to sort affairs of state or to take their house into the Covenant itself.

Hi, Leandra Xochitl here! Earlier I posted a photoset with pics of me and my Mexican mom. I mentioned that I love traditional Mexican clothing in that post, so now I am sharing some of my collection with you! Frida Kahlo was famous for being an amazing artist and a feminist icon, but she also believed in sharing the beauty of traditional Mexican clothing/fashion in the world. My followers know that I love different styles (Lolita, Pastel Goth, etc.), but I am also an adamant lover of ethnic clothing. In particular, I want the world to see how beautiful and varied our Mexican clothes can be! All of these pieces are handmade–handwoven, hand embroidered, etc. Three of the Oaxacan pieces are vintage (the Tehuantepec blouses and dresses), as well! Below are pictures of me wearing some of the pieces I own.

And finally, MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE ONE!!!
