anonymous asked:

how much is a 78 where u live worth? bc in america that's a C+ lol

at my university getting over 80% is extremely rare. this is the grading system:

80-100 = H1 (First class honours)
75-79 = H2A (Second class honours, Division A)
70-74 = H2B (Second class honours, Division B)
65-69 = H3 (Third class honours)
50-64 = Pass

so considering the massive size of the assignment, the effort i put into it, the standard of the university and the fact that i got the second highest grade achievable, i’m proud of my results thanks. (and tbh i’d still be proud even if i did get a c+.)

this is my fave hearthstone video

for those of you who don’t know, lifecoach is a hearthstone player who insists on waiting for the rope to burn out every single turn, making each one of his turns last the maximum of 74 seconds before ending them. this is infuriating in the extreme and boring to watch

so this is a video of him getting punished by the enemy randomly getting nozdormu, a card that’s usually pretty terrible, and being completely unable to make his brain work at anything similar to the speed of a normal human brain since he now loses 59 seconds of his precious turns

1. Write every day. Except on days when you don’t feel like writing that much and you don’t have anything interesting to say.

2. Never write when you’re too hot. Beads of sweat are ideas leaking from your brain.

3. Nobody really eats turnips. They are a ridiculous food. Characters cannot eat turnips.

4. Hypnosis is the writer’s greatest tool.

5. Skinny people are often the cause of conflict. Fat people are often the solution. NO MEDIUM SIZED PEOPLE.

6. If you must write about the travails of being a writer, at least give yourself a glass eye or a cyborg hand or something.

7. After your second draft, read backwards, from last page to first. If it doesn’t make sense both forward and backward, you’ve done something wrong.

8. Always describe the smell of your protagonist’s hands.

9. Fathers and sons do not speak to each other unless one of them has lost a limb and needs help finding that limb.

10. There is no evidence that people have gills, but there is no evidence that people cannot have gills.

11. For photosynthetic purposes, it is essential that you spend time writing in the outdoors.

12. 3rd person narration, like gladiator duels, is a barbaric invention of the ancient Greeks and should never be used under any circumstances.

13. Using multiple questions marks or a question/exclamation combo makes you look an actual crazy person.

14. Wear non-restrictive clothing that will allow the ideas to flow freely around you. Tunics are good, and cheap.

15. Chronological order is the only structure the human mind has evolved to understand.

16. If at all possible, get your characters to a place without gravity.

17. Cicadas are the most symbolic and underutilized creatures in literature.

18. A sex scene only works if it’s written in precise, clinical detail.

19. More fucking profanity.

20. Always know what size shoes your characters wear. The soul is in the shoes.

21. Most people don’t understand math anyway.

22. At least one character must have a funny accent.

23. Everyone moves clockwise. Counterclockwise is for anarchists

24. No lefthanded characters. Too weird.

25. For every adverb you use, do five pushups.

26. Y is an indecisive letter; using it implies indecision.

27. Children are interesting from ages 0-2 and the not again until they’re 14.

28. Just assume everyone has a weird fetish they’d like to keep secret.

29. A nursery rhyme: short chapters make everyone happier.

30. Start with the acknowledgments page, so that you always know who you’re disappointing on your bad writing days.

31. Include at least one scene in which someone meets an estranged sibling.

32. Characters use microwaves, not ovens. Ovens take too long

33. Highlight all the verbs and replace them with other better verbs

34. Writer’s block is best cured by swallowing a penny.

35. The hard C sound conveys authority. Do not soften yourself.

36. In dialogue, include all the ‘um’s but cut the ‘uh’s

37. Conjunctions, conjunction, conjunctions!

38. Remember, every surface your characters touch is just covered with deadly microbes.

39. Mercury poisoning is great for providing plot twists.

40. Do not have more than two redheaded characters, or people will think you’re up to something.

41. Make sure the plot isn’t lifted from a Nancy Drew book.

42. If an editor gives you advice, do the opposite.

43. Buy a lot of index cards.

44. Every day, pick an unusual adjective from the dictionary and be sure to use it.

45. Your literary heroes were probably terrible people. Be more like them.

46. No boats. Boats are over.

47. No airplanes either. Nothing interesting happens on airplanes anymore.

48. The only reliable way to begin a scene is with an alarm clock going off.

49. If you’re stuck, introduce a blimp. Blimps expedite plot.

50. No lightning. It’s cliche.

51. There is always a ghost in the attic.

52. Twins are interesting.

53. At the zoo, it’s easy for people to fall over fences.

54. Present tense is for junkies and teenagers.

55. It’s easy to distinguish characters if each has a unique hat.

56. Italics makes words sound fancy.

57. Shoot for a minimum of two metaphors per page.

58. If you haven’t introduced the gun by page 50, introduce it on page 51.

59. Diners and bars are the setting for about 80% of all human conversations

60. What does a gerund do? It does nothing.

61. In dialogue, everyone should always be lying.

62. Elevators are the crucible of our social lives.

63. Readers want to know where your character bought his car, what his monthly payment is, what kind of rate he got.

64. Your character may not be a caterer. There are more caterers in movies and novels than there have been throughout the history of the world.

65. See what you can do with SONAR.

66. Time your writing schedule to coincide with the different phases of the moon.

67. Spend two decades traveling before you write a single word.

68. If, in the history of language, anyone has written a sentence like the one you’ve just written, delete that sentence and start over.

69. Most metaphors don’t have to make sense; they just need to be memorable.

70. Rain is always meaningful.

71. Linoleum floors are much less interesting than quicksand.

72. The stars can be beautiful without forcing themselves upon you. The same should apply to your writing.

73. Shakespeare did it first. You can do it second.

74. You haven’t truly made it until you’ve received a threatening email from a stranger.

75. Write as if you’ve been possessed by a demon, but, like, a nice demon.

76. Record a video of yourself sleeping at night, so you know what it looks like when you’re at your most vulnerable.

77. Most people want you to fail. Never forget this.

78. At least 25% of any book should be flashbacks.

79. Never kill a dog in your book. The dogs will know.

80. The best food to eat to stimulate your writing process is a charcuterie tray. D.H. Lawrence ate nothing but cured meats.

81. Writing is 30% perspiration, 40% inspiration, 40% good luck, 50% magic, and 1% mathematics.

82.Every sex act must result in a pregnancy.

83. Repetition is the sign of an unfit mind. If possible, never employ repetition of words or phrases, lest you seem to have an unfit mind.

84. The internet is not going away; your characters should frequently interact via email and hacking. Lots of hacking.

85. Only employ vampires if they are a metaphor for municipal government.

86. Dialect should be heavy and consistent. It is important to know whether someone is from the South, or Eurasia.

87. Leave a few blank pages at the end of your final chapter and encourage the reader to conclude it the way he or she would like.

88. One of the most important choices you will face is deciding which font to use.

89. Spill every secret you know; you can’t save them for the afterlife.

90. Write a minimum of twelve drafts. Then put the manuscript in a safe deposit box for one full year before reading it again.

91. Think about all the cool things you can do with UFOs.

92. Set the scene. A minimum of seven sentences of setting description before even mentioning a character.

93. Readers like mystery. Try to reveal as little as possible during the first two chapters.

94. Characters in neckties are boring. Characters who poach rhinos for a living are not.

95. Every line of dialogue should be performing a minimum of five functions.

96. In your final draft, cut the last line of every paragraph, no matter what.

97. When something is REALLY IMPORTANT, put it in CAPS. It’s the only way for some readers to know.

98. A well-placed illustration can save you the trouble of writing a thousand words.

99. Writing a book is fundamentally a political act. This means at least one character must be given the opportunity to make a political speech of no fewer than 6 pages.

100. Magical realism is a term invented by occultists.

101. Write to displease whatever god you believe in.

102.Believe in monsters.

103. Contractions are a crutch for writers too lazy to type the whole word, but also crutches can be really useful, like if you have a broken leg, for example.

104. Write about the thing you love the most, and destroy it.

105. DO NOT READ other novels while writing. You don’t want to taint your vision.

106. Cut all human ties until you have finished your book. Friends are leeches, family are anchors.

107. The human body has 206 bones and 642 muscles. These are naturally perfect numbers: 206 words per page, 642 syllables per page. Every page.

Manhattan Halloween Terror Hoax, More Details - November 1, 2017

So in light of this propaganda taking place a span of 8 weeks from the borough president’s birthday, the final number killed is 8.

So this is the terror suspect who ran around with two guns, was shot in the stomach and taken to the hospital, yet he is casually just chilling right here, posing for the camera.

Updated at 9:03 with the 1:14 (74 second) video, and the Houston Astros Predictive Programming/Branding.  World War = 114

Flight 93 crashing at 9:03 CST

7+2+6+1+7+8+8 = 39

Look at the big 3 on this actor’s back.

Look at the actor on the left trying to keep a straight face.  He knows this is just a play being sold as real life events by his local police department.

10/31/2017 => 10+31+(2+0+1+7) = 51

Conspiracy = 51
Propaganda = 51
Federal = 51

Numerical art, branding their propaganda.

Sayfullo Saipov, the reflection of 391, saying he was ‘radicalized domestically.’
And why didn’t they quote ‘radicalized domestically’ in the headline, but only in the article?  Shouldn’t they be following the rules of quotation?  A professional journalism organization does not falter on this.  They do not cherry pick these kinds of things.  All this means is that CNN and mainstream news media is not professional news, but rather professional propaganda, coded by the numbers.

Habibullaevic??  That name is completely made up.  Just some shit fusion of an Arabic and North-Asian name.

His initials break down to 181, the 42nd prime number.  Freemason = 42

Execution = 116, 911 upside down.

What about your top 20?

physical

Buy a stethoscope and listen carefully to your heartbeat. If you are young, it should sound like this:

nobody has paid attention to me for 72 seconds
nobody has paid attention to me for 74 seconds
nobody has paid attention to me for 76 seconds
someone is paying attention to me
leave me alone
leave me alone

YAS. YES. ABSOLUTELY. YUP.


  • MELTS WHEN HE SEES HIS CHILD. HIS WEAKNESS IS HIS BABY.
  • Teaches them basketball at a young age. His spouse has to stop him from teaching the poor child his violent tactics.
  • He always makes fruity cereal bars for his kid. And it’s because my kid likes it dammit, I totally absolutely do not eat these with him.
  • Absolutely goes and scares monsters out of his kid’s room so they can sleep better. Papa scares the monsters away because he’s scarier, Mama!
  • Loves his child, but is tired 900% of the time. Often falls asleep .74 seconds after his child has begun their nap.

“He made the people happy”

'DRUNK IN LOVE' IS #2 ON BILLBOARD HOT 100 THIS WEEK, MAKING BEYONCÉ'S 15TH TOP TEN

Fellow Grammy performer Beyoncé breaks into the Hot 100’s top 10 (13-2) with top Streaming Gainer “Drunk in Love,” which she performed as the gala’s opening song. After a week at No. 2, the track returns to No. 1 on Streaming Songs (9.4 million, up 74%) for a second frame on top. It vaults 8-2 on On-Demand Songs (2.3 million, up 42%) and enters the Digital Songs top 10 (18-7; 151,000, up 94%). It continues scaling Radio Songs, where it lifts 16-14 (68 million, up 15%).

With the song’s Hot 100 climb, Beyoncé scores her 15th top 10 and first since Lady Gaga’s “Telephone,” on which she’s featured, reached No. 3 in April 2010. “Drunk” marks Beyoncé’s first top 10 as a lead act since “Sweet Dreams” rose to No. 10 in November 2009. It’s also her highest-charting song since “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” spent four weeks at No. 1 beginning the week of Dec. 13, 2008.

With 15 top 10s, Beyoncé ties Connie Francis and Olivia Newton-John for seventh-place among women with the most top 10s in the Hot 100’s 55-year history. 

Jay Z, meanwhile, extends his record for the most Hot 100 top 10s among rappers, as he collects his 21st (with 12 in a lead role; Beyoncé has sported lead billing on 13 of her 15 top 10s). Among rappers, Lil Wayne and Ludacris share second place with 18 top 10s each, followed by Eminem (17), Diddy and T-Pain (15 apiece).

“Drunk” is Beyoncé and Jay Z’s fourth shared Hot 100 top 10 (and the third with Beyoncé as the lead artist). With Jay Z as the lead, “‘03 Bonnie & Clyde” reached No. 2 in December 2002. The couple followed with “Crazy in Love” (eight weeks at No. 1, 2003) and “Déjà Vu” (No. 4, 2006). (With the pair having wed in 2008, “Drunk,” thus, marks the Carters’ first top 10 as husband-and-wife.)

In addition to its Hot 100 accolades, “Drunk” becomes Beyoncé’s seventh, and Jay Z’s 10th, No. 1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs (4-1).

While “Drunk” gains by 62% in overall Hot 100 points and “Horse” increases by 26%,“ the latter song boasts a comfortable 45% points lead over the former atop the tally.

Monet at Vétheuil (74)
The second trip to Normandy
Perhaps the more spectacular cliff paintings are those that Monet made at sea level. Here’s two of them. The first one is made near Fécamp, but the other seems to be made during a short visit to Petites-Dalles, a small village little less than 20 km from Fécamp, where his brother had a country retreat by the sea.
