Stir-It-Up

As we mourn the golf great Arnold Palmer, we acknowledge another contribution he made to our culture: the tasty and refreshing iced tea and lemonade beverage that carries his name.

Over his long career, Palmer won seven majors, 62 PGA Tour events, the Masters, the U.S. Open and the British Open. However, it was his working-class background — Palmer’s dad was a greenskeeper and golf pro — as well as his humble spirit that helped the now-iconic sports figure grow famous. So the nonalcoholic concoction that Palmer stirred up fit with his plainspoken persona.

But how did Palmer come up with the eponymous refreshment?

Overkill, much?

Scheme2016 is progressing slowly, but well.  I am enjoying this plot arc in the game.

The team successfully lured and ambushed a General NPC.  They knocked her out so the druid could steal her form in order to stir up shit with another faction.  It went pretty brilliantly, actually.

I think the boys went overboard in restraining the General, though.  First the cleric put her in a cursed sleep, which she could only awake from after repenting for her sins (basically forcing her to go on some sort of spirit quest in her dreams).  Then the sorcerer tied her up.  Then the wizard created some sort of crystal prison thing.  Then the druid stuck her in a cage of stone.

Like, I get that they were probably all just itching to use their abilities.  But they inadvertently made this NPC way too interesting.  I just want to know her story now!

Was this blog with the "toxic bloggers" list was the non-toxic voltron blog?

I don’t have the whole story honestly, but I know the blog that made the list is @nontoxicvoltron and they said and I quote: 

to everyone in our inbox informing us about how the possibly triggering blogs list was a bad idea, we’ve talked to several ppl about it and fixed the situation, but i dont think any of us want to reply to each individual of the forty messages to let you guys know, so i’m making an announcement here

for clarification, this means that the list is no longer public, because while it wasn’t our intention, making a public list like that stirred up waaay more drama and tears and bloodshed than it actually did good. the list still exists, however, so if you’re sensitive to problematic content and want to block as many people as possible to keep your dash as safe as possible, just shoot an ask our way and we’ll privately send you the link” 

They made that entire shit storm because they wanted to stop “Problematic and Triggering Content” from coming across their dash by CALLING OUT ALL THE BLOGGERS IN THE FANDOM that post such controversial content that triggers them so horribly. 

Not only is that stupid but that’s like sticking your ass by a beehive expecting not to get stung and then realizing maybe that wasn’t your smartest idea. 

There’s easier ways to avoid content you don’t like: Tumblr savior. 

Blacklist everything that hurts you and only follow people that share the same interests and ship preferences as you. It’s that simple. Don’t have to be a dick and call out the people you don’t like because you can’t handle differing opinions about fictional characters and relationships. 

Hello fandom friends! Have you all checked out NERDS FOR HER

http://www.nerdsforher.com

It’s a campaign set up by Paul DeGeorge from @harryandthepotters to help stir up fannish enthusiasm—and channel fans’ values—in advance of the election. There are shirts (I AM BUYING ONE I LOVE SHIRTS) and buttons and things, but there are also digital signs like this one that you’re free to download. 

We’ll be talking with Paul on the next episode of @fansplaining! But in the meantime, I’m going to go around reminding people about how much we love

Curiosity killed the Bird

Hizashi looked over at the papers in front of him, hardly paying any real attention in his grading however. These past few days had been nothing but slowly building tension the more he thought over the strange behavior of his colleague. Brushing off his feeling did nothing but cause them to grow and feed off his ever growing anxiety, especially with how there was no one he could actually turn to that wouldn’t balk at his claims or dismiss him entirely as being nothing but a paranoid man stirring up the beehive.

Putting down the papers, he deftly took out a clean sheet and began writing down a note to his best friend, intending to slip it to Shouta tomorrow before he would try to investigate what’s been eating at him…

He rose bright and early the next morning, getting ready as usual before striding off towards the school. Despite how cheery and otherwise normal he acted, there lurked a grimness behind the mask of sunshine as he slipped by the homeroom with hopes to see his best friend there. He needed to be careful about this should it come to the worst, finding the yellow sleeping bag tucked away in its own little corner. Shouta was probably in the teacher’s lounge or somewhere nearby, knowing that his class was first in the day. Being quick about it, the blonde slipped the note into the depths of the bag before waltzing right out to hopefully search for Midnight to strike up some conversation.

FutureTrumai and Present Trumai. Your thoughts and the muse's?

– I’m not a huge fan of it. I mean…Mai is A LOT older than Trunks. And I do like future trunks as a lone wolf type of man. But I do ship Truhan a lot too! I don’t know, it feels weird to see those two together. I mean if you ship it, you ship it. No problem there. I’m personally not a huge Trumai fan.

“I-Isn’t that Mai girl then one who my dad talks about? Yeah, she and like two other people stirred up some stuff when he was younger. I didn’t think she was that young still…”

anonymous asked:

That anon is stupid. I've met Zac in New york city years ago, he came out signing autographs for fans sitting in the cold and took pictures with all of us this was during his break too. He also had long conversations. He's very sweet. A few months ago a fan chased him and broke his phone and Zac bought him a brand new phone and let the fan meet him and the rock and signed things for him. Since the start of his career he was always humble and shy. Seriously anon wtf is wrong with u

I have only heard good things as well! I am not sure what that anon was on about.. Most likely just trying to stir up drama. I know Zac had a substance abuse issue back in the day, but has been working through that. He seems like a good guy to me.

Your work has been a gift to mankind. You shaped the century.

On Bored!Nino

Okay, so for most of Season 1, we see Nino as this energetic, steady, smiley best friend of Adrien’s, yes?

Exhibit A:

But before this moment, we had a very different Nino.

One that is seated at the back of the class, alone, with music on high volume. It is canon that this Nino has been sitting in that seat for at least a year prior.

And look at his face when he was told to sit in front.

LOOK AT IT.

JUST. NINO, WHAT IS THIS FACE.

I MUST KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON INSIDE THAT RED CAP.

  • Why is Nino so attached to the back seat? Was he trying to compose music during class?
  • Who were his friends before Adrien? Did…Did he have friends before Adrien?
  • Why is his music on so loud? (I mean, I like my music loud, too, but it felt like he was blocking everybody out.)
  • What’s with the bored face?
  • When he’s told to sit in front, he groans and doesn’t even try to hide his displeasure, and even drags his feet while the teacher is right there. Wha- 
  • Does he not like school?
  • Did he not have friends before Adrien?
  • DID HE NOT HAVE FRIENDS BEFORE ADRIEN?
