a very high bridge

2

Gosh darn, I just can’t help but get excited when there are legit psychology references in shows.

If you’re confused at these two lines and thinking, “why would suspense ever bring two people closer??” Lemme break it down for you.

Izaya is actually making a direct reference to a psychological phenomenon known as the misattribution of arousal. It’s based off of Schachter’s two-factor theory of emotion which states that the process of emotion occurs like so; stimulant (eg. bear chasing you) -> physiological arousal (heart rate increasing, adrenaline, pupil dilation) AND cognitive labeling (oh, my heart is racing I must be feeling fear!) -> emotion (*feeling fear*).

This theory implies that when we attribute the label of an emotion to the physiological arousal we feel, we actually end up feeling the emotion itself. In other words, emotions to a small degree are a result of what we think we’re feeling. Strong, long-term emotions can not be altered by labeling it as something else, telling yourself that you are happy when you are sad doesn’t work. The emotions must have the same/similar physiological responses to be confused together, this is what is known as the misattribution of arousal.

Schachter also proved his theory in an experiment. Researchers had a group of white males cross a very high, wobbly bridge, and another group cross a low very safe and sturdy bridge. At the end of the bridge, a female researcher would ask them questions about a picture, and then give them her phone number “in case they had questions about the experiment”. Hint hint, she actually gave them her number to measure the difference in phone calls they got from the men that experienced arousal from crossing the high bridge, and the men than didn’t experience it from crossing the low bridge.(note: the men were told the study and the questionnaire was for something else entirely, and didn’t know the true purpose of the study).

The men that experienced arousal from crossing the high bridge had more sexual content in the story they told regarding the picture when they saw the female researcher. She also received more phone calls from this group in comparison to the control group. Later, they redid this study with women, and the results were the same. In conclusion, people will mistakenly misattribute emotions that are similar to each other physiologically. The participants mistook their physiological arousal and fear from crossing the bridge for sexual attraction.

Izaya is mockingly asking Shinra here if he confused his fear of getting caught by the police for sexual attraction/arousal/love for Celty.

I know his reference is a little vague here, but considering that Narita stated that Izaya was most likely in the social sciences during university, it’s pretty expected that he learned about this theory. This is one of the more respected theories of emotion.

This screenshot of me shouting General Tullius off the very high bridge in front of Solitude as he was in the middle of his rousing speech is honestly my favourite memory from any game. No one reacted at all and it took him a good 45 seconds to make his way back up and resume what he was saying. I shouted him off again immediately.

T.O.P
He was working with his members in the studio for their comeback when he got the call. He couldn’t believe you got in a car accident. He didn’t want to explain to the others yet so he just told them he has to go because it’s urgent. He came as fast as he could. When he saw you connected to all of those machines he shed a few tears and then sat next to your bed, holding your hand. He stayed by your side until Daesung and Taeyang came to the hospital to pick him up. He didn’t want to leave you, so Daesung stayed with you and promised if anything changed he’ll call. He was really emotional when he heard you almost died. He couldn’t imagine how would he live without you.
“She’s in a coma, I c-can’t leave-e h-her like that…”

It was late at night when you were going home from work. You texted Jiyong you’re getting home and suddenly while you were passing the road, a drunk driver hit you. You didn’t even see him because he was too fast. In one moment you felt everything, but nothing. An hour later Jiyong got a call from the hospital and immediately left. He was lucky because today was his day off, but he planned a great date for today and it all crashed, his whole plan. He was scared to hear what the doctor will say. He entered the room, saw you in bandages and laying still. He ran to your bed and told you how worried he is. He couldn’t believe you were the unlucky person who got hit by a drunk driver. He decided he’ll find him since he didn’t even stop and call an ambulance. He had his mind on finding him.
“Don’t worry Jagiya, I’ll find him, okay? Just wake up… Please.*Leans to your head and kisses you*”

Your day started couple hours ago and it was already time for lunch. You went to lunch with your co-workers in a car. But while you were driving a truck driver hit you and your car fell off a bridge, but on your luck, it wasn’t very high and the river beneath it was peaceful. He was just practicing with some rookies and it was their 10-minute break when he got a call from the hospital. He couldn’t leave them like that but when he told the staff you were in the hospital they let him go because after all you were his girlfriend and he deeply cared about you. He came and a doctor told him, you have to go through 2 difficult operations and you’ll have scars for the rest of your life. He just sat next to your bed and prayed for you. He was only hoping for help and praying for you.
“Please…Don’t take her away from me… Please, I beg you…*Holds your hand*”

You just texted him you’re going to do some grocery shopping when a car hit you. You saw the car, but you didn’t see him moving towards you. He just texted you back, when you were laying on the road, blood coming out of your nose, your arms were broken… Luckily you regained your conciseness for a while in an ambulance and you asked them to call Daesung. They called him and he was really shocked and couldn’t believe it at first. He didn’t want to believe it. He rushed to the hospital and saw you laying in the bed, nurses besides you, getting you ready for your operation. He watched them take you away to the operation room and stayed there a whole night until they finished. He texted other members in a group chat telling them you were in the hospital and they called him and cheered him up.
“But hyungs… She might not be okay… They said she has to go through 3 more operations…”

Your day normally started early in the morning, but for today you decided to get up little later and when you did you dressed up and went to the mall with your friends. On the way back, while you were driving on the main road, another car tried to go past you but ended up hitting a truck and pushing you beneath the truck. You were unconcise when the ambulance came and drove you to the hospital. They found your phone and called your boyfriend who you had saved as an emergancy contact. He was at home working and when they called him and told him everything, he left the papers and asked his manager to do them and hurried to the hospital. When he saw you, he couldn’t help but cry. He stayed with you until he could, after a few days you woke up and since you’d gotten better he came back to work. He never forgot that feeling when he got a call from the hospital.
“She’s getting better, right?”

Open starter (I guessss)

Choco was sitting on a rail of a bridge at a very high height looking down at the water. Peacefully she listens to the water and the wind.

Certainly others walked by worried about her thinking she was committing suicide, but she wasn’t. She’s just very curious and not cautious.

dude I feel you on the whole being mixed thing. My mom is Egyptian while her dad was black and my dad is Polish, both his parents are very white. I have pretty much the exact same features as you except I have a high(ish) nose bridge and my hair is very straight and extremely thick. People most often mistake me as "spanish" or from the middle east, which wouldnt be completely wrong but thats a small percent. Being mixed is a blessing and a curse

you see this is so cool dude. i love hearing about other mixed people and their experiences. pls shoot me an ask if you wanna share about yourself !!!!!!

anonymous asked:

highschool closet. just found out the guy I like is gay. he's honestly perfect because he's cute and smart and nice. he's two years older and doesn't know me. I'm way too young for this, i know. general advice on life / boys / the closet would be nice?

I’m roflcoptering at “highschool closet.” 

Dear Closet,

It sounds like with this age difference, he might be going off to college soon. I can tell you first hand that the bridging the high school/college gap is very, very hard. And I don’t want you to get hurt. Because I care about you, Closet. But that’s just cynical, old me. As far as first boyfriends go, that doesn’t sound half bad. If you’re trying to get to know him/get him to know you, message him on Facebook. I know you aren’t out, but if he is, and a time comes when you would feel comfortable to do so, message him saying that you’re trying to come out to your family and you’re looking for some advice. If he’s a decent guy, he’ll help you out and he wont be a dick about it, because he’s been there. 

Here are some of my tips on life / boys / the closet during high school:

1.) If you don’t have anything to say to each other on the phone, get off the phone. I can’t tell you how many hours of my life I wasted on the phone with boy friends when we had literally nothing to say to each other. If one of you is having a hard time, it’s helpful to know that someone is on the other line; I get that. But if you’re spending an hour of your night just listening to each other breathing, that’s just creepy. 

2.) If you’re trying to date someone, go on dates with them. Go out, talk, and spend time getting to know each other while doing fun things. There is a distinct difference between dating and hooking up. Both are entirely valid, but don’t confuse one with the other. Hearts will be broken. 

3.) Be upfront about what you’re looking for in a relationship. Be honest when you’re first starting out. If you don’t know what you’re looking for, say that. If you know that you wont be able to keep up the relationship after you graduate, let them know. 

4.) If they’re sweet while texting, but an asshole in person, it’s not worth it. Guys can do this a lot. It’s best not to waste your time. 

5.) Don’t use dating apps until you’re mature enough to handle them. It’s not worth it to start using them while you’re young. Guys on there can really suck.

6.) If you’re in a committed relationship, don’t be on dating apps. That just isn’t fair. If you still want to use those apps, don’t commit to a relationship. 

7.) You can come out however you want to come out. There is not blueprint that you have to follow. You don’t have to do exactly what your friend did or exactly how your friends think you should. It’s your choice. You can tell as many or as few people as you want. In my experience, I didn’t want to make a big gay Facebook status. I told my family and a few friends, and I let gossiping little bitches do the rest. Coming out is a difficult thing to do, but it’s also a weird social construct in the gay community; you’re still you before and after you come out, people knowing your sexuality doesn’t change who you are. While you don’t owe anyone a title, personal knowledge and self-identification are both very important. If you know who you are, embrace it. Come out for you, not for anyone else. 

8.) If you feel yourself being fake, it isn’t right. I wish I knew this one growing up. Don’t feel like you have to change who you are for a guy. Who you are is valid. If he’s worth it, he’ll like you for you. I realize that sounds corny but its so so true. 

9.) Always have a lifeline. Someone you can talk to, no matter what is happening. The time in between realizing I was gay and actually coming out was about 8 months, and during that time I felt very alone. But I found solace in my sister. I didn’t tell her I was gay, but I talked to her about the anxiety I was feeling and the loneliness I was struggling with. She helped me more that I could ever explain to her. Find someone who can help you. Its helpful if its someone you can physically talk to, face to face. But if push comes to shove, I’m here. 

10.) Don’t settle. There are so many gay fish in the sea it’s not even funny. If it’s not right, you can’t force it. You owe it to yourself to seek genuine happiness. You are worth it. And you deserve it.

Today I am 35.

When I was younger, I expected a lot of things about “growing up” and becoming “an adult”. I don’t think I could have ever anticipated the bizarre state I exist in now. Some things have gone better for me, others worse. I’m not as far as I want to be, but probably further than I give myself credit for. Overall, I consider myself fortunate to be where I am.

I play videogames for a job. I have an anxiety disorder. I live back in my home town, near my family, with my girlfriend who I met through Desert Bus. I’ve put on a lot of pounds and beard hairs. People on the internet message me frequently to say they love what I do, that I helped them carry on in bleak times. I see a therapist who helps me believe them. I’ve sunk to the depth of thinking I would never be happy again, and risen to the height of being front and center to $2m lifetime for charity. I’m unsatisfied but hopeful. Held back but forging ahead. Nothing ever goes right for me yet I am the luckiest man alive. 

This life of mine powerfully doesn’t make sense to me, enough so that sometimes all I can do is laugh. And here’s hoping you’ll all laugh with me.

So what do I want for my birthday? The truth is that I have more games than I can possibly play, more magic cards than I can build decks with, more comics than I can read. And I very much appreciate the patronage and donations of my fans, but what I really want is something very simple and very challenging.

Be good to one another. Mend bridges, take the high road into the future, be the better people that the world sorely needs right now, that it always has needed. The internet has become a very polarized place where oaths of loyalty are sworn, battle lines are drawn and war is waged. So rather than fuel the fire that threatens to burn us all, set an example for why it doesn’t have to be that way. 

It won’t be easy, but it will be very worthwhile. I believe in you.

A couple days back, I posted the portrait of a young man who described an influential principal in his life by the name of Ms. Lopez. Yesterday I was fortunate to meet Ms. Lopez at her school, Mott Hall Bridges Academy.

“This is a neighborhood that doesn’t necessarily expect much from our children, so at Mott Hall Bridges Academy we set our expectations very high. We don’t call the children ‘students,’ we call them ‘scholars.’ Our color is purple. Our scholars wear purple and so do our staff. Because purple is the color of royalty. I want my scholars to know that even if they live in a housing project, they are part of a royal lineage going back to great African kings and queens. They belong to a group of individuals who invented astronomy and math. And they belong to a group of individuals who have endured so much history and still overcome. When you tell people you’re from Brownsville, their face cringes up. But there are children here that need to know that they are expected to succeed.”

anonymous asked:

Thanks for the thoughts about Yamada! I'm currently trying to get to know him too before I see him play Ed, so do you have a recommendation on Yamada's past drama/movies that I should check out? And maybe some interesting interviews/videos of him? Thanks in advance!

OH BOY DO IIIIIIIIII

Sorry I took a while to reply, but it took me a little while to compile my final list (so far)! It’s kinda long too……


DRAMAS
- Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo Neo [The Kindaichi Case Files Neo]
This one’s definitely my favorite Yamada series so far! It’s a lil cheesy at times, but it’s interesting and hilarious! This series is the main reason why I think he can play Ed.

- Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo Special: Gokumon Juku Satsujin Jiken [The Kindaichi Case Files Special: Prison Gate Cram School Murders]
Technically this came before the series but I watched it after sooo… You don’t miss much to understand the series, but it fills in a couple gaps later.

- Furuhata Chuugakusei [Furuhata Middle Schoolers]
Lil Yamada once again in a detective role, being smart, cool, and solving mysteries! But will he and his friend solve the biggest one!? This one’s cute, and the special is a full, complete story so no series came after it.

- Cain to Abel [Cain and Abel] (currently airing)
It’s nice to see Yamada play a different role. Here, he plays to role of an average younger brother who can never seem to catch up to his amazing, seemingly perfect older brother. I’ve only seen two episodes, but i’m already intrigued and will continue to watch as the eps become available~

- Hidarime Tantei EYE Special [Left-Eye Detective EYE Special]
Lil Yamada being cool and getting into fights while trying to solve mysteries. The plot twist at the end and Ishihara Satomi having no self-control are also a must see!

- Hidarime Tantei EYE [Left-Eye Detective EYE] (currently watching this one)
The actual series that started with the special. Start with the special above!!!

- Risou no Musuko [Perfect Son]
This one’s just bad. I watched it all so that ya don’t have to. It has its hilarious moments, and I appreciate Yamada’s commitment to his role and the ridiculous situations he’s placed in, but no. Still, if ya happen to like B movies and stuff, maybe this is your cup of tea.

FILMS
- Assassination Classroom (i’ve yet to see the sequel tho)

ITADAKI HIGH JUMP (Hey! Say! JUMP’s TV Show)
- Full 1st ep of Yamada, Nakajima, and Inoo riding rollercoasters - Nagashima Spa Land
- Full 2nd ep of Yamada, Nakajima, and Inoo riding rollercoasters - FujiQ rollercoasters
- Full ep of when Yamada wears a dress + hits bell with soccer ball

UPDATED: HONEYMOON INFO AFTER URBAN OUTFITTERS LISTENING PARTY

FIRST I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT ONE OF THE BEST THINGS ABOUT THIS ALBUM IS THAT YOU CAN HEAR EVERYTHING LANA IS SINGING CLEARLY, WHERE IN ULTRAVIOLENCE, HER VOCALS WERE DROWNED OUT

1. Honeymoon - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPU8XJcA__k
2. Music To Watch Boys To - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ddg_K1izcUE
3. Terrence Loves You - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emDU4QvdwVk
4. God Knows I Tried- God knows i lived, God knows I died…  God knows I’ve loved, God knows I lied, God knows I lost, This song is a creepy sounding song with only a guitar in the background. It is beautiful sounding, and has a great vocal range. In the chorus, she hits a lot of low and high notes, and i think this sound isn’t similar to anything she has done
5. High By The Beach - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnxpHIl5Ynw
6. Freak - We could slow dance to rock music, Kiss while we do it, Talk till we both turn blue The song sounded very similar to the preview we heard. It is like a scarier Florida Kilos. It references the lyric “easy rider” from one of Lana’s unreleased songs, Angels forerver. The bridge was beautiful, and she hit very high notes. There were some weird high background vocals at the end of the song.
7. Art Deco You’re so art deco, out on the floor, just let it go forever This song was techno sounding slightly. The lyrics were hard for me to make out, but it sounded similar to a lot of Lana’s older stuff. There were heavy beats in the background. It sounds so mysterious… It has a weird orchestral sound in the background, but it also has some techno sounding beats
8. Burnt Norton (Interlude) - the audio is pitched a bit, but here this is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVnEIleVf0k
9. Religion - OH MY GOD! You’re my religion, You’re how I’m living, when all my friends say you should take some space, I can’t envision, that for a minute This song was SO AMAZING! The verses are slow and quiet, with a bass beat in the background, and it builds up to this chorus. The chorus is louder, has piano and guitar I think.  The bridge is amazing, but I am gonna let you guys wait to see that.
10. Salvatore - THERE WAS A FLUTE AND AN ORCHESTRA AND SHE SINGS THE CHORUS IN SUCH AN AMAZING WAY, IT SOUNDS LIKE NOTHING SHE HAS EVER DONE AND HER VOCALS ARE SO HUSKY AND CLEAR AND AMAZING This song has a mysterious Piano trilly noise thorughout the whole song.
11. The Blackest Day - Ever since my baby went away, It’s been the blackest day - This song starts with acapella, and it is flawless, as expected. This song is hauntingly amazing. It’s vocals are high and scary, very similar to 24. I forget the background music, and it is almost indescribable, this song. It is so powerful. It was an amazing ballad… AND IT MENTIONS BLUE NAIL POLISH, AS DOES 1949, AN UNRELEASED SONG
12. 24 - There is only 24 hours and thats enough to lie like you lie, or love like you - I am not being sarcastic when I say that this song gave me the chills because of the vocals in the end. It had a acapellla sound, and as usual she sung high notes thorughout the thing. It was a ballad, and it goes perfeclty aftert The Blackest Day
13. Swan Song -  I honestly dont remember much, but the background was orchestra and was amazing.
14. Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood - This sounded almost electric, and the music had a lot of organs in the background. This was lyrically identical to Nina Simone’s version of the song, and it was vocally more high pitched.

ASK PUBLICLY IF YOU WANT TO HEAR A BIT OF ANY OF THE SONGS, I MIGHT KNOW OF SOME LINKS

Swan Queen Sneak Peek Transcription

For all of you who can’t watch yet, here you go.  I even filled in some of the stuff happening so you could get the full picture.

Opens: Regina and Emma walking down into the mausoleum, Regina going first.

Regina: Don’t touch anything.

Emma: How am I supposed to learn magic if I can’t touch anything?

Regina: The same way I did with Rumple, *Emma picks a thing up*, we’re going to (sexy hand motions)create a solid foundation first, and then build your spells from the ground up- *Regina notices Emma holding the claw-like thing* I said *takes thing from Emma and puts it back down* don’t touch.

*Emma looks like a scolded 5-yr old*

Regina: *sighs* So, while we’re here, who’s looking after Henry?  The Uncharmings? *Meanwhile, Regina is looking around and opens a chest with some books inside*

Emma: *not even the least bit insulted by the quip* Actually, Hook is.

Regina: *sad puppy eyes* Well those two have been spending a lot of time together lately.

Emma: Hook’s good with Henry, and Henry likes him.

Regina: He’s prone to violence, impulsive, and has a hook for a hand.  What about him would a twelve year old boy not like? *Emma has now moved into position and is actually staring at Regina’s ass—see end for photographic evidence*

Emma: I trust him.  He brought me back to Storybrooke and he didn’t have to.

Regina: Oh, of course he brought you back. *jealousy levels on high*

Emma: *confused puppy* What’s that supposed to mean?

Regina: Seriously!? You’re going to pretend everyone doesn’t see the yearning looks and doey eyes?

Emma: I don’t yearn.

Regina: *smiles* Well maybe. But he does.

Emma: *really sad puppy… don’t you wuv me Gina?*

*Regina picks up the book with the heart on it that she learned magic from*

Regina: Let’s start *opens book* with rudes for incantations. *shows Emma the page*

Emma: Are you kidding me right now? What language is this, Spanish?

Regina: We’re not making tapas (?) we’re making magic.  It’s elfish *duh, Emma* Well, half elfish.

Emma: *concerned* Just think about your training, what other methods did he use?

Regina: Rumple was a bully.  He didn’t suffer fools and he certainly didn’t coddle his students.  And if he tried to teach you how to swim and you couldn’t learn, you drowned. *throws book back in chest and slams it shut*

Emma: Drowned?

Regina: *inspired* That’s it.

Emma: *very concerned* That’s what?

*Regina smiles as wide as humanly possible and swirls them away in a cloud of purple smoke*

Scene:  Emma yelps and realizes she is up very high over a ravine on a flimsy rope bridge.  Regina is safely off to the side on actual ground.

Emma: What the hell are you doing?

Regina: Teaching you to swim.

Photographic evidence of Emma finding the booty:

Dean’s toes grip to the slick metal edge, hand gripping the rail tightly. His body is completely pressed up against the metal structure, criss-crossed bars digging into the muscles at his back. Droplets of water travel down his freckled nose and fall into the water below.

The bridge isn’t very high, but it’s high enough.

“Chicken.”

“I’m not–”

Dean smirks, his one free hand moving under his armpit to form a wing. Bloating his cheeks, the eighteen year-old makes loud and obnoxious chicken noises.

Castiel rolls his eyes. “That won’t work because I’m no longer five.”

“Chiiiicken. Chicken. Chicken. Chickennnnn.”

“Dean–”

“Sorry, I don’t speak chicken. Bok, bok–mmMPH!!”

Dean is so busy teasing, he doesn’t see the determined look settle onto Cas’s face. Though it isn’t there for long: in a split second Castiel has lunged forward, pressing his chapped lips to Dean’s wet ones. The green-eyed boy yelps in surprise, hand on the bridge rail turning white with effort. His eyes slip shut just as Cas pulls away, pressing another chaste kiss to his red mouth. Feeling daring, Castiel smirks himself, breath hot against Dean’s cheek as he whispers in the other’s ear. “Who’s the chicken now?”

He jumps.

Dean is dumbstruck. He watches his friend splash around in the water below, teasing and calling him a chicken. When the light-haired boy jumps, it feels more like falling.

Dean surfaces with a determined look. He swims, backing Cas up against the ladder of the pier until they’re nose to nose, panting and gripping at each other.

Cas smirks, raising a challenging brow as Dean entangles their legs, the expression crumpling when the other boy purposefully grinds their hips together. “A-Ah–”

Dean swallows the noise.

They spend far too long in the water, moving and kissing and touching. By the time both boys emerge, their tangled fingers are pruned and goofy smiles adorn their faces.

“Guess you’re not such a chicken after all.”

so today I went to urban outfitters to listen to honeymoon

 I realize that this store has done some controversial stuff in the past, but they were playing the album, Honeymoon in full. For those who couldn’t go, here is a description of the songs!

The chorus is louder, has piano and guitar I think.  The bridge is amazing, but I am gonna let you guys wait to see that. 
10. Salvatore - THERE WAS A FLUTE AND AN ORCHESTRA AND SHE SINGS THE CHORUS IN SUCH AN AMAZING WAY, IT SOUNDS LIKE NOTHING SHE HAS EVER DONE AND HER VOCALS ARE SO HUSKY AND CLEAR AND AMAZING
11. The Blackest Day - Ever since my baby went away, It’s been the blackest day - This song is hauntingly amazing. It’s vocals are high and scary, very similar to 24. I forget the background music, and it is almost indescribable, this song. It is so powerful. It was an amazing ballad
12. 24 - There is only 24 hours and thats enough to lie like you lie, or love like you - I am not being sarcastic when I say that this song gave me the chills because of the vocals in the end. It had a acapellla sound, and as usual she sung high notes thorughout the thing. It was a ballad, and it goes perfeclty aftert The Blackest Day
13. Swan Song -  I honestly dont remember much, but the background was orchestra and was amazing.
14. Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood - This sounded almost electric, and the music had a lot of organs in the background. This was lyrically identical to Nina Simone’s version of the song, and it was vocally more high pitched.


ASK PUBLICLY IF YOU WANT TO HEAR A BIT OF ANY OF THE SONGS, I MIGHT KNOW OF SOME LINKS

what about a small prior-after-screenshot?

A before-and-after for Isii? Can do:

I kept the changes very subtle - after all, I wasn’t looking to totally redesign her. Her cheeks are a little thinner, her jawline a bit more heart-shaped. The biggest changes happened in the shape of her nose. It’s hard to try and get that very straight high-bridged nose without it looking strange, but I’m much happier with it now.

And after spending roughly an hour tinkering with it, this is the comment I got coming out of the Mirror:

No one asked you.
