50 dollar

2

Hey I’m making another Commission post bc I’m THAT poor. Consider buying a commission from me, I’m very fast and I will draw most things. Just message me if you’re interested or have a question! All money will go to my food or my sweet kitty’s food. Prices are always negotiable, so just send me a message and I’ll be happy to work with you! 

Extra characters are 3 usd each, if you want something like a background I’ll charge maybe 5-10 usd depending on complexity.

Even if you can’t buy from me please reblog I have like 50 dollars. I don’t have a car and can’t get a job on my school campus because my parents (who don’t pay for my food) make enough money that the school doesn’t need to hire me. Unfortunately money also gets used up because of cat costs and for things like toiletries and food. So please consider commissioning me or at least reblogging this post. 

TLDR pls signal boost if u can!!!

"I'm Bored!"

…and after the 50th time my little cousin said that at today’s family get-together, I went to the car and got the dice.  Three small children between the ages of 6 and 10 got to play (a very loose, impromptu, anything-goes version of) D&D for the first time ever.  I titled it, “Save the Princess.”

My niece played a wizard, while the bored cousin played a fighter, who gradually evolved into the equivalent of a rogue/eldritch knight, and the other cousin played a cleric. These are the ensuing things my young players said.

DM: You are all staying at an inn tonight.  It’s like a hotel.
Wizard: Is there a pool?!
DM: … why not.
Wizard: I’ll get my bathing suit!
—————-

DM: The man who was reading the book in the lobby last night comes up to you guys.
NPC-Druid: I’m going to get to the dragon first, turn into a bear, and kill him! 
Fighter: There’s going to be bear traps!
DM: Roll to persuade him there’s going to be traps.
NPC rolls a 3, and the Fighter rolls a 7.
DM: The guy with the book starts crying and goes back to his room.
—————-

DM: A pony is 20 dollars, a horse is 50 dollars, and an invisible horse is 70 dollars.
Wizard: Ooooo! Let’s buy a pony!
Cleric: YEAH!
Wizard: It’s white with polka dots, okay!
Cleric: YEAH!

—————-

Fighter: I want to put a bottomless hole under the wolf! (rolls too low).
DM: You put a hole next to the wolf.
Cleric: I want to put the wolf to sleep. (rolls high enough).
DM: Alright, he’s asleep now.
Wizard: I’m going to push the wolf into the bottomless hole. 

—————–

Wizard: I want to cast a spell to put bugs in his shirt… Is the dragon wearing a shirt?
—————-

The saddest part about the campaign was that the dragon didn’t get one hit off on the players.  The wizard, however: poisoned it, burned it, summoned a rock that fell on its head, summoned a swarm of insects that got in its scales and bit it a lot, and the fighter made it incapable of breathing fire.  This is how the dice fell, and this is how the dragon died.

LOST PARAKEET

Hey guys, I found this posting on Craigslist and received permission from the owners to cross post this. 

If you or someone you know is in the Wichita, Kansas area, please be on the lookout for a lost parakeet.  12 year old “Charlie” escaped his travel box sometime yesterday (3/19) in the vicinity of Greenwich and Pawnee.  Coloring is gray with blue/pink chest and stomach (picture embedded)  No band. The wind yesterday was blowing south-southeast anywhere from 10 to 25 miles an hour, and today south-southeast at approximately 12 mph plus bursts.  Not sure where that would put him by now. 

Owners are distraught and offering 50 dollar reward but the bird is priceless to them.  His bondmate is extremely distressed, I was given permission to list the owners number for texting, so if anyone does happen to spot him, please notify Jay and Em at (316) 258-8193.  Please take a photograph, even if you can’t trap or coax him down, that will at least keep their hopes alive of getting him back.  Jay is disabled and Charlie is his therapeutic companion bird. 

If you don’t live near here, please reblog this in the hope of finding someone who is.  The desperation in Em’s messages is absolutely devastating, this bird is their precious baby.  If, like I do, you follow any fellow birblr you can get your hands on, you know there has been loss today.  Please help this couple hope there won’t be more.

What has Trump actually done in his first 100 days?

In late October, the president made 28 promises for his first 100 days. These were not the only promises the president made for his first 100 days, but they comprised the “contract with the American voter” Trump introduced immediately before the election. 

Here are Trump’s promises, followed by where they stand:

•  "Propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress.“ Not proposed.

•  "A hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety and public health).” Done, then rolled backthis month.

•  "A requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated.“ Done.

•  "A five-year ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service.” Done for White House officials, with loopholes.

•  "A lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.“ Done.

•  "A complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.” Not done.

•  "I will announce my intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205.“ Done.

•  "I will announce our withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.” Done.

•  "I will direct my Secretary of the Treasury to label China a currency manipulator.“ Not donesays he won’t.

•  "I will direct the Secretary of Commerce and U.S. Trade Representative to identify all foreign trading abuses that unfairly impact American workers and direct them to use every tool under American and international law to end those abuses immediately.” Done.

•  "I will lift the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars’ worth of job-producing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal.“ In process: Trump ordered a review of what regulations to cut.

•  "Lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward.” Done.

•  "Cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure.“ Not done.

•  "Cancel every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum and order issued by President Obama.” Done.

•  "Begin the process of selecting a replacement for Justice Scalia from one of the 20 judges on my list, who will uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.“ Done. Neil Gorsuch was confirmed to the Supreme Court.

•  "Cancel all federal funding to Sanctuary Cities.” Done, but blocked by federal judge.

•  "Begin removing the more than 2 million criminal illegal immigrants from the country and cancel visas to foreign countries that won’t take them back.“ Done.

•  "Suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur. All vetting of people coming into our country will be considered extreme vetting.” Done, but blocked by federal courts — twice.

Overall, Trump is 14 for 18 on these actions and measures.

Trump also promised to introduce ten pieces of legislation in his first 100 days. He has introduced or announced three of them.

•  Cut taxes for the middle class and businesses. Announced: Trump’s tax plan cuts the corporate tax rate from 35% to 15%, but it’s unclear how the plan will help the middle class.

•  Establish tariffs on goods created by U.S. companies overseas and shipped back. Not done.

•  Leverage public-private partnerships to spur $1 trillion in infrastructure investment over 10 years. Not done.

•  Let parents send their child to the school of their choice. Not done.

•  Fully repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace with a conservative option. Introduced.

•  Allow Americans to deduct child care and elder care from their taxes. Not done.

•  Fully fund construction of a wall between the U.S. and Mexico. Not done.

•  Increase training and support for local police to fight violent and drug crimes. Not done.

•  Increase funding for the military, reform the Veterans Administration. Announced.

•  Enact new ethics reforms to “drain the swamp.” Not done.

Trump is 0 for 10 on passage of those pieces of legislation, and 3 for 10 on introducing or announcing them. Read more (4/28/17)

Addiction is not pretty girls sniffing cocaine on glass tables in low-cut dresses and drinking expensive liquor that you cant even pronounce.

Addiction is not a “quirk” that you can add to characters in your fan-fiction, to make them tragedy.

Addiction is that feeling of relief when your paycheque comes in, even if its supposed to pay your rent.

Addiction is watching your face hollow out, following suit with your mind.

Addiction is telling your friends and family that it’s “just allergies”, even though you have sounded stuffed up all-year round.

Addiction is that look of disapproval and pity the volunteers at the drug clinic give you, as you throw your used needles into that yellow bio-hazard box, and reluctantly take a pack of 10 new clean ones.

Addiction is sitting in 7 day detox programs, writing out a 90 day recovery plan, and praying that you can actually stick to it. Praying.

Addiction is lies.
Addiction is feelings of shame.

Drugs were supposed to be fun.

They used to help you break down those social barriers, although ironically enough, now you couldn’t care less if you didn’t see another person ever again for the rest of your life.

On the inhale.
You feel your heart pump faster.
Your blood speeds through your system.
You feel feelings of euphoria you didnt know were possible.

On the exhale.
You realize thats another $50 dollars gone.
You remember that thing you had to do yesterday that you slept through.
You remember the cracking in your mothers voice when you picked up the phone and told her you weren’t coming home again.

You remember what you had. You remember what you lost.

Drugs can take you to other worlds, much different than our own.

But they will never take you to a world that mirrors what life was like before.

His Friends hate him! Local man discovers easy cheap way to destroy 500USD competative decks in a casual format!

{DISCLAIMER: ALL MTG PRODUCTS BELONG TO WOTC, ALSO THIS DECK IS NOT MODERN LEGAL}

Hi there! Do you play MtG? Do you want to dominate the game in a terrible fashion? Do you want a deck that your friends imeadiately scoop when you play them casually? Do you want to lose said friends? ……. Do you have 50 dollars? Great! Here at Dr. Devilshorts Inc. have just the solution! Introducing Pox! Never heard of it? Your opponents probably haven’t either but tHEY’LL NEVER FORGET THE SUFFERING. I was like you, I was broke as fuck and lost to my friends constantly but with Pox I destroyed both their decks and their willingness to talk to me! Let me show you the secret to my dark success:

24 Swamp


4 Liliana’s Caress
4 Quest for the Nihil Stone
4 Pox
4 Smallpox
4 Waste Not
4 Chain of Smog
1 False Cure
4 Hymn to Tourach
4 Rotting Rats
3 Abyssal Nocturnus
3 Sign in Blood
3 Reassembling Skeleton

66 Total Cards (because this deck brings you ever so slightly close to Hell)

Now let me explain this evil thing here…

For starters, your opponents have protection? They think they are safe??? POX CARES NOT, IT TARGETS EVERYONE, WE MUST ALL SUFFER.

So the average player at turn 3 against this deck has 3 land, a creature or 2, 4 cards in hand, and 20 life. Starting with life, and Pox ALWAYS rounds up, your opponent now has 13 life. They now have most likely only 1 creature, 2 land, and 2 cards in hand. You have the same, so how do we win??? Easy! Let’s run a good hand of Pox to see!

TURN 1:

Swamp and….

We will get to why this baby is important on turn 3!

TURN 2:

Swamp and…

Would you look at that? Still doesn’t target anyone!

TURN 3:

Swamp and POX

So if we go off of the previous knowledge your opponent goes down to 13, then when they dicard 2 cards Liliana’s Beautiful face slaps them for 4 more so 9 life left and go back to Nihil Stone and read it, now look bakc at me, now back at the stone, it has 2 counters on it, but more on that in a minute. Now your oppponent is sad and has very little lands and thigns to do.

TURN 4:

From my experience people have about 2 cards at this point so blam 4 more life because Liliana and they are at 5 life and no cards (also read it carefully, discard at random!)

OPPONENT UPKEEP AFTER TURN 4:

They have no hand, reread Quest, look at your opponent untap his things with 5 life, look back at Quest, look back your opponent, your opponent has 0 life.

Pox is possibly the strongest deck I have ever built from scratch, it is my Opus Magnus. It was simple not too expensive, has great synergy, but has no reliable weakness to it. It keeps pace with other decks because it ruins mana curves by balsting creatures and land. It hurts you too, but you only ever need 2 or 3 mana to be a dick. I hope at least 1 person found this deck fun, but do me a favor. If you build it and your friends look into your cold dead eyes and ask “Why? Why have you done this?” Shrug and tell them, “Gary was done taking shit from Slivers.”

about Tracer nendoroid, from a toy collector

heya, so you probably want that tracer nendo and you dont know where to buy nendos

well im a toy collector, so i’m gonna help you out here

how much to pay

the average going price for nendoroids is 30-40 USD before shipping. don’t pay more than this. if you find a retailer selling it for more than this, you’re getting ripped off. 

where to buy

bigbadtoystore.com: go-to american retailer for buying toys. they might list it at a markup, around 50-60 dollars. i dunno. but bbts is legit.

hobbylinkjapan: reliable site for buying relatively new japanese figures. prices are in yen, but they have a USD conversion on product pages too. ships from japan so shipping is gonna be pricy. 

amiami: best site for buying new japanese figures. fairest prices on both the figures and on shipping. stuff sells out quick here. amiami does not normally allow cancellation of preorders, so if you’re a new customer and you need to cancel your tracer preorder for whatever reason, prepare to get blacklisted.

where not to buy

don’t buy from ebay or amazon. tracer and any other overwatch nendoroid/figma figures are gonna be in high demand, so they’re gonna get bootlegged. if you buy from ebay or amazon you better be prepared to overpay for a bootleg. 

shipping

ok so lets say you choose to buy it from HLJ or AmiAmi. japanese shipping options are different, so i’m gonna explain what you should pick.

pick SAL or EMS. SAL is slow and has no tracking number, but it’s cheap. EMS is super fast and has a tracking number, but is also super expensive. 

do not pick any other options. 

HLJ offers fedex shipping. don’t pick it. fedex is garbage. it’s expensive, slow, and there’s a good chance fedex will just lose your package. 

amiami and hlj also offer RSAL, a shipping option thats basically SAL with a tracking number. don’t pick this. it’s really, REALLY slow. slower than regular SAL. don’t bother. 

ok now you know how to buy your tracer nendoroid. have fun.

“Hey Sammy!” Dean’s boots were heavy on the staircase. “Just gotta, uhh, grab somethin’,” he said, rushing towards the hallway that led to his room. “This is Y/N by the way,” he said over his shoulder. 

Sam looked up at the sound of your footsteps at the bottom of the stairs.

“Hi,” you said, stopping dead in your tracks. You expected Dean to have a good looking brother but wow… Sam was tall and handsome, and there was something kind and warm about his eyes.

Sam could feel himself gaping at you. He cleared his throat awkwardly. “Uhh… Hey.” There was a long silence where both of you searched for something to say. Sam was coming up empty, and just trying not to be obvious about staring at you.

“So, this is the bat cave, huh?” You looked around, rocking a little nervously on your feet. “Nice.”

He managed an awkward laugh, running a hand through his long hair. “Yeah. Yeah… it’s someplace to crash,” he said with a smile.

You felt a peculiar fluttering in your stomach as you looked at him and were able to return the smile. Just when you were searching for something else to say Dean came bustling back out.

“Alright. Let’s roll,” he said.

You held your hand out. “Cough it up, Winchester,” you said.

Dean begrudgingly dropped 50 dollars in your outstretched hand and you grinned a pleased smile at him. “Thank you!” You pocketed it. “Maybe next time you’ll think twice before betting against me.” You flashed another smile at Sam and he nearly staggered back from the spark in your eyes. “Nice to meet you finally, Sam.”

“Yeah! Yeah…” He trailed off as you strode out. “You too…”

“See you later, Sammy. We’re going back to the bar to play some more pool.”

“Dean! Wait.” Sam lowered his voice as his brother approached. “That’s your pool buddy?”

Dean nodded. “Yeah.”

Sam squinted at him. “Uh huh… And, uhh,” he cleared his throat. “You two–”

Dean raised his eyebrows at Sam. “What?”

Sam looked extremely uncomfortable. “Well… you know… you two are–?”

Dean smirked at his brother. “Are what, Sammy? Spit it out.”

Sam glared at him. “You… You know what–Dean,” he said.

Dean chuckled and finally decided to put Sam out of his misery. “We’re not doin’ the deed, so batter up, cowboy!” He wiggled his eyebrows at his brother and punched him in the arm.

“Are you coming or what? Those assholes aren’t going to hustle themselves!” you called down from the stairs.

“Coming!” Dean called, and with a final wink at Sam, both you and he disappeared through the heavy from door.

I’ve seen some religious voltron headcanons floating around so take some jewish pidge/holts headcanons…

• The Holts always have shabbat dinner, usually just the four of them since they live kind of far from their immediate family (being close to the garrison and all)

• Every Hannukah Matt and Pidge bust out the god awful ugly hannukah sweaters. Mrs. Holt kept trying to get rid of them but she can’t.

• Matt got drunk off of manischewitz during passover one year (nobody really knows how it’s basically grape juice lmao)

• Pidge messes with the gragers on purim every year so they make an airhorn sound when spun

• Mrs. Holt makes gefilte fish every time they go over to someone’s house for a holiday. Nobody eats it except her children who do so with tears in their eyes. They don’t know why she keeps making it.

• Every year Commander Holt insists they add some kind of pea to the latkes. The rest of the Holts decides that their dad should just make his own damn latkes.

• Pidge was banned from the afikomen search when she was like 8 because she hardcore cheated by putting a tracking device in the cover to win. maybe a $50 dollar prize wasn’t a good idea.

• Matt gets bombarded with the “do you have a nice jewish girl?” all the time by his aunts.
“Uh not yet auntie maybe soon.” *thinking about his boyfriend Shiro* “Maybe not soon.”

• Pidge’s Bat mitzvah was scheduled right before the Kerberos mission so it would be one last celebration for the whole family before Matt and Commander Holt left.
