a quite insane one

7

I have a theory about this photo.
It may be nothing, but still.
Okay so, this is to the fangirl’s eye, Antisepticeye. But some people are just saying that it’s Jack wearing earrings. While that’s probably the more logical answer, I have theories!!! Okay so first of all, Jack NEVER wears earrings. And yes you could say that he misses them, but does he really? If you take a look at the description of the photo, you will see that there’s no sign of enthusiasm. Usually, if you take a look at the other ones that I’ve taken screenshots of he shows a form of enthusiasm, or just something to tell people that he’s not being too serious. A lot of the times he uses some form of punctuation, which he’s not doing in his recent photo. Okay second, the face he’s making. I took screenshots of a few, but if you go to his Instagram you’ll see that he’s never posted a photo quite like this one. It’s almost like he’s going insane. The only times he’s ever posted a photo remotely close to his recent is when Anti came in October. And also, the only time that Jack has posted a photo of him with earrings on is when the Anti takeover was close! Coincidence? I think not! And Jack posted a Detention video today. Which is the only series at the moment with Anti in it. SOOO, my theory may be WAY off, but I wanted to share it with you! Let me know if you agree!

anonymous asked:

i'm kinda lost, why does everyone hate jake paul and why is he being arrested?

Because he’s a bigoted, two-faced, racist asshole who cares about no one but himself. Just one google search and you’ll barely be able to stand hearing his name or seeing his face. And it was just a false rumor about him getting arrested because he’s been making the neighborhood he lives in, a living nightmare for everyone around. He’s causing a ruckus and gives no shits about the ones around him, it’s quite insane.

 Combiners, Part 2: Natural Combination with the Enigma of Combination and effects of using it.

Part 1

Before I go into the whole Enigma of Combination there is one thing that has to be said, and it is best said using Devastator when combined with Prowl.

During the events of Megatron’s return to Cybertron Bombshell used Prowl to replace the dead component of Devastator, Scrapper. This wasn’t just to let Megatron have Devastator, but also to control Devastator. Through Prowl, Bombshell was in complete control of Devastator while Prowl could do nothing but watch.

However it wasn’t until Arcee killed Bombshell that the final merge could happen. With Prowl’s mind no longer controlled by Bombshell, his psyche completed the merge and all six bots became Devastator.

With the Constructibots willing to combine with Prowl, Devastator becomes smarter. At least at first. Unfortunately the “sanest” we see Devastator is in Robots in Disguise #29, and from there on it goes downhill. Devastator his haunted by Scrapper, Prowl starts calling the constructibots Scrapper if he’s not thinking about it, he’s leaking energon in the classic trope that when someone is suffering from severe psychic assault or survives a great psychic attack they start getting random nosebleeds.

What is happening is that ultimately Prowl is wholly incompatible with Devastator, and Devastator is already damaged by the loss of Scrapper. Devastator is deteriorating, and Prowl is going down with him as well.

If this goes unchecked, and it has a good chance to as Prowl is blind to this and views Devastator as a weapon he can wield without a problem, Devastator is on his way to become the second Monstructor, a combiner which has to be controlled lest it goes on a rampage destroying everything in sight.

This, along with the first part about combiners, gives us the much needed information into what makes a combiner work.

We need group cohesion. A combiner has to consist of bots that know each other, complement each other and have to be able to stand each other. If their personalities clash we end up with a combiner with diminished intellect. But the component bots have to have their personalities or free will, because as seen with Monstructor that if you remove who the bots are you end up with quite insane Combiner.

We need the will to abandon one-self. A merge of personalities into one being is vital for a Combiner to work. As seen with Swindle’s Menasor attempt having the bots keep their thoughts and personalities led to a disaster that was swiftly dealt with. But with the will to be part of a whole while abandoning yourself the combiner can have their personality and their own will. Prowl is stubbornly holding onto who he is when he’s part of Devastator, and this is causing him problems and might be lethal for him in the long run.

But to understand the Enigma of Combination, we have to go a bit further back.

I am not that familiar with Headmasters in the history of Transformers, so I might be getting few things wrong or assume stuff I wouldn’t if I were more familiar with Headmasters. However one thing that immediately comes up for me as reading this section of the comic is that the Headmasters are a sort of a combiner, most likely also created by Enigma and could have been a form of Amica Endura back then. It is clear that the short-lived beastformer is an independent being and the body, Myskrion, was another independent being. The unnamed beastformer appears quite sane and it is very probable that all three, the two components and the Headmaster, were stable enough to pass for a regular Cybertronian.

But what happens when the Enigma of Combination happens upon those who do not understand this ancient and powerful artifact?

It becomes a disaster.

The fact is that no one can truly understand what a Combiner is. Optimus Prime constantly tries to reason with Prowl while he and the Constructicons are in fact Devastator. Swindle at one point tries to reason with Motormaster when he’s in fact addressing Menasor. And when Prime makes the same mistake of addressing Silverbolt while talking to Superion, Superion corrects him but at the same time tells Prime that Prime doesn’t truly understand what a Combiner is.

This leads to a disaster. The Stunticons are not really a cohesive group, and the presense of Blackjack, a Badgeless bot with anger issues, is enough to make Menasor highly unstable.

This instability leads to Menasor becoming quite single-minded and unable to realize the situation he’s stuck in nor is he able to listen to Swindle who has the right idea and even tries to get Menasor to break up and go back to Cybertron.

But the main effect of the lack of group cohesion is when we compare Menasor to another combiner, who consists of bots who share the same goal and their personalities do not clash.

Superion, even though he has two new components after losing one, is able to reason, strategize, and listen to others. And what is now a pretty effective measuring stick, he can speak in sentences longer than five words instead of just barking words. He’s even able to articulate what is going on with him to Prime when Optimus Prime sought understanding.

But what happens when you take six random smucks and expose them to the Enigma?

Well, according to the speech pattern yardstick, Defensor is the worst off Combiner, created by bots who barely know each other, do not have much in common at all, their personalities clashing, which gives us Defensor, a Combiner who can’t even speak in sentences which is a step below Menasor, and is terribly wooden emotionless being. In the long run this can damage Defensor and his component bots like how Prowl is slowly becoming unhinged.

The Enigma of Combination is being used recklessly without fully understanding it, and before anyone realizes what’s going on, the damage can already be irreversible.

25 things to do before you turn 25.

1. Make peace with your parents. Whether you finally recognize that they actually have your best interests in mind or you forgive them for being flawed human beings, you can’t happily enter adulthood with that familial brand of resentment.

External image

2. Kiss someone you think is out of your league; kiss models and med students and entrepreneurs with part-time lives in Dubai and don’t worry about if they’re going to call you afterward.

3. Minimize your passivity.

4. Work a service job to gain some understanding of how tipping works, how to keep your cool around assholes, how a few kind words can change someone’s day.

External image

5. Recognize freedom as a 5:30 a.m. trip to the diner with a bunch of strangers you’ve just met.

External image

6. Try not to beat yourself up over having obtained a ‘useless’ Bachelor’s Degree. Debt is hell, and things didn’t pan out quite like you expected, but you did get to go to college, and having a degree isn’t the worst thing in the world to have. We will figure this mess out, I think, probably; the point is you’re not worth less just because there hasn’t been an immediate pay off for going to school. Be patient, work with what you have, and remember that a lot of us are in this together.

7. If you’re employed in any capacity, open a savings account. You never know when you might be unemployed or in desperate need of getting away for a few days. Even $10 a week is $520 more a year than you would’ve had otherwise.

External image

8. Make a habit of going outside, enjoying the light, relearning your friends, forgetting the internet.

External image

9. Go on a 4-day, brunch-fueled bender.

External image

10. Start a relationship with your crush by telling them that you want them. Directly. Like, look them in the face and say it to them. Say, I want you. I want to be with you.

External image

11. Learn to say ‘no’ — to yourself. Don’t keep wearing high heels if you hate them; don’t keep smoking if you’re disgusted by the way you smell the morning after; stop wasting entire days on your couch if you’re going to complain about missing the sun.

External image

12. Take time to revisit the places that made you who you are: the apartment you grew up in, your middle school, your hometown. These places may or may not be here forever; you definitely won’t be.

13. Find a hobby that makes being alone feel lovely and empowering and like something to look forward to.

External image

14. Learn to understand when you are jealous of someone else and realize it is a part of life, but you also are great in your own way.

External image


15. Forget how a person should be.

External image

16. Identify your fears and instead of letting them dictate your every move, find and talk to people who have overcome them. Don’t settle for experiencing .000002% of what the world has to offer because you’re afraid of getting on a plane.

17. Make a habit of cleaning up and letting go. Just because it fit at one point doesn’t mean you need to keep it forever — whether ‘it’ is your favorite pair of pants or your ex.

External image

18. Stop hating yourself.

19. Go out and watch that movie, read that book, listen to that band you already lied about watching, reading, listening to.

20. Take advantage of health insurance while you have it.

External image

21. Make a habit of telling people how you feel, whether it means writing a gushing fan-girl email to someone whose work you love or telling your boss why you deserve a raise.

External image

22. Date someone who says, “I love you” first.

External image

23. Leave the country under the premise of “finding yourself.” This will be unsuccessful. Places do not change people. Instead, do a lot of solo drinking, read a lot of books, have sex in dirty hostels, and come home when you start to miss it.

External image

24. Buy one  insanely expensive outfit for nice events.

External image

25. Quit that job that’s making you miserable, end the relationship that makes you act like a lunatic, lose the friend whose sole purpose in life is making you feel like you’re perpetually on the verge of vomiting. You’re young, you’re resilient, there are other jobs and relationships and friends if you’re patient and open.

The Leia/Poe/Kylo relationship is still a very interesting thing about the new Star Wars franchise, though.

Leia (not unreasonably) wanted a son like her husband, Han Solo.

Poe meets all those requirements (cocky,  handsome, charming, charismatic, rebellious, and a great pilot with a witty sense of humour. He is also someone who will do whatever she asks of him.)  

Don’t kid yourselves: That’s why she loves and favours Poe. That’s why she’s crazy about him.

Oh, and, as Before the Awakening implies, Poe is desperately lonely and looking for a mother figure to replace the one who died when he was young. He’s deeply vulnerable himself. 

Ben, meanwhile, isn’t Han. He never was.  He’s more like that the batshit insane dad Leia can never, ever quite stopped secretly resenting.  

No one here is the bad guy.  But the whole situation is still sorta sad.

Whose Insanity?
Do not deem
Wu Hsin to be insane
Simply because you cannot hear
The music he dances to.
Man is the one who is insane:
His solution to his
Need for security is to
Lock himself away in a prison.
What could be more secure than
A prison?
He passes his time
In a solitary cell labeled “me”.
Believing he is now safe and that
No other can harm him,
He has exchanged freedom
For security.
What is outside
The walls of the prison is the unknown,
Possibly not secure,
Not safe,
Alien, at times hostile, and
Not at all predictable.
Yet what sane man would choose
Prison over freedom?
Man is the one who is insane:
He trades the experience of life,
Here and now,
For time and attention spent
On regretting the past,
Wishing for a better past and
Hoping for a brighter future,
For a future that will right
What is now deemed not right.
The fragrance of the apple blossoms,
The laughter of a child,
The blueness of the sky,
All sacrificed on the altar of
Mental preoccupations.
What a waste!
Man is the one who is insane:
Yet, quite normal
Within societal boundaries.
Numerous methods may lead one to
Being more comfortable.
But that is all you get:
One who is more comfortable in their prison,
Not one freed from their prison.
Nothing gets a person out of their prison
Because the person is the prison.
—  Wu Hsin
So I’ve Just Been To See “Mad Max: Fury Road”

Warning, spoilers ahead. I’ll put them under a “Read More” link, but I have no idea if the mobile client will honor that.

So, you know, keep reading if you want to see those.

But FIRST.

The ticketing servers at the theater were down, so my Fandango tickets couldn’t be read. The poor ticket taker had to write the numbers down so that after the servers came up, they could enter them all by hand to mark them used. In retrospect, this was the perfect, failing infrastructure foreshadowing lead up to what is probably the greatest post-collapse apocalyptic dystopian road trip film ever made.

Before I go any further, there are a lot of people calling this movie “Steampunk.”

Stop that. This is not Steampunk. There is a very defining characteristic of Steampunk, and that is the use of steam to generate power - whether you want to go full-on Victoriana Obscura, or 1950′s retro-chic, or whatever, it’s not Steampunk unless it’s actually using steam to run the technology of the world.

There’s none of that in this movie. The technology of this movie runs on gasoline and slaves. This is nuclear fallout, atomic devastation, complete ecological disaster, scrap-metal and razor wire. The dustbowl aesthetic is so intense, my throat was parched ten minutes in. This movie is about warlords and power and control and a two-thousand horsepower nitro boosted war machine shattering its way across a sterile desert on the slim-threaded hope of freedom. This is a post-apocalyptic miracle movie with so much turbo power that I actually forgot to breathe about five times during the film. My heart was racing. I walked out of the theater feeling like I’d just run a 10K. My best friend looked at me and said:

“Compared to Mad Max, John Wick is a contemplative drama about a man dealing with grief and loss.”

It doesn’t stop. It doesn’t relent. There is violence. So. Much. Violence.

But there is also a fully developed, fully realized world, with religions, and culture, and myths and parables. Fury Road delivers absolutely developed, completely realized characters (holy shit, Furiosa), astonishing action, and just a completely insane, adrenaline-infused cocktail of full-bore, up-against-the-wall action. It is amazing. I have said it many times, I am saying it again.

Mad Max: Fury Road is amazing.

So. SPOILER TAG.

The fire flickers lowly over the damp wood, illuminating the faces of the various monsters who crowd around the glow as though it’s a beacon. Their voices are hushed and their breathing is even but rigid. This is a pack pushed together by fear. This is how you survive in Purgatory.

The monsters are hardened, with gruff voices and callused hands and an urge to kill that runs through their veins. For some of them it’s been thousands of years since their time on Earth, and for some of them it’s been only a few short decades. All traces of warmth their bodies once held have long since faded, leaving them cold and aching for a heat they will never feel again, possibly don’t even remember ever having.

So when a werewolf peers at the others with large brown eyes that reflect the orange flames and says in a grave voice “There is a human in Purgatory,” every single voice is cut off with a gasp.

The Latest Buzz // @tradelikesforlikes

               Success doesn’t come easy. It’s only for the worthy.

                My name is Patrick Bateman. I’m 27 years old and I live in New York City. I am a huge success. A millionaire. A playboy. I dropped out of Harvard to set up my own social networking empire. It was a risk worth taking, because Vibe is now used by over 700 million people all over the world. It’s a website for chat, for connections, for making friends. It’s also used to fuck. I hook up a lot through my own app. Crude, I know, but I just can’t help it. I’m a rich motherfucker.

                 My latest gig? Social media launch event in NYC. All of the big guys were there, including Zuckerberg, my toughest competition. Fucking Facebook. Who even fucking uses Facebook anymore?

                 I rolled up in my custom Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport. There are only thirty of these cars in existence, and it’s the fastest road legal production car in the world. What can I say? I like speed. I was also keen to hook up tonight; this party was a bore and I wanted sex with a hot chick.

                 Oh. Another thing? I use all of my wealth and materialistic goods to cover up the fact that I am one sick, twisted motherfucker, obsessed with horror films and serial killers like Ted Bundy and Ed Gein and I actually am insane, okay? I hallucinate, quite vividly, about those things. One day, I could actually hurt someone.
