abbrevation

‘Cishet’ was an abbrevation born out of trans people’s needs to differentiate between cis straight people and trans straight people when talking about our oppression and oppressors.

Asexuals deeming the term obsolete or incomplete, attempting to erase it because it doesn’t suit their agenda and constantly modifying it so that they (cishets who fall on the a-spec) are not the very cishets we’re talking about is an attempt to nullify the language trans people use to talk about our own experiences while using our oppression as a way to legitimize their own points.

Cishet has never been about being cisgender heteroromantic heterosexual perisex. Cishet has always been ‘being cis and being straight’, which cis people who are attracted solely to the other binary gender are, even if they don’t feel both sexual and ‘romantic’ attraction.

real__pcy : Wow.. #AsExpectedEXO #As Expected EXO-L’s

[t/n: * ㅇㅅㅇ is a common emoticon to express shock/surprise, it’s supposedly resembles a facial expression.
** The Korean term “ 역시 (abbrev ㅇㅅ in short for "As expected” (note the first consonant)
EXO’s hangul name also begins with ㅇㅅ : 엑소 (note the first consonant)
“ㄹ” is the hangul equivalent of the sound “L” in english, hence ㅇㅅㄹ would mean EXO-L!]

Omg I just noticed that the abbrevation for the conpanion fic obs&bh would stand for tampons&bras in german 😂 ... Just wanted to let you know that - finally something not utterly shattering about the companion fic

oh my god I don’t know whether to laugh or cry or completely change the name of the companion fic! Why do these things happen to me??? 。゚(TヮT)゚。

Alternatively maybe it’s weirdly appropriate because everyone in this series seems to either be in pain or need support or both

Hello, Jenna! In my novel there is a scene where two characters are texting each other. I've been wondering how I should write the messages. Would it be appropriate to write something like "heyy how u doin :)"? Thats what my character would text like. or should I stay formal and write "hello, how are you doing?" instead?

If it’s a text message, write it the way they would text. Read other books that feature texting in order to determine the format.

But a gentle warning: people are a little tired of reading books that feature texts written lyk dis. So try not 2 overdo the texting abbrevs an lingo cuz its annoyin 2 read an I tink ppl stopped texting lyk dis in 2005 but wut do I know im old :P

Imagine Chanyeol mistakenly thinking “istg” means “instagram.” He loves his Instagram and ends up writing the abbreviation at the end of each post as a sort of signature sign-off because it makes him feel cool. He doesn’t forget to add his favourite phrase, as well: “wtf” because he believes firmly in the message of “working that face.”

He receives an email just a few days later from Choi Siwon telling him not to forsake God’s sacred name and to please pray. Complete with Siwon’s personally-picked religious links and everything. Chanyeol appreciates Siwon’s concern but he’s still confused why he got the email in the first place. He replies with a “stfu” because he’s too lazy to write full-out “super thanks, friendly unicorn” (the highest of praises in his and Yixing’s dictionary).

He’s even more confused when he receives a box full of rosaries the next morning and a message that Siwon would be arriving within the hour with a prayerbook.

anonymous asked:

Honestly if it was sth like the KKK instead of that abbrev. people would have stopped right away? Like imagine saying "according to the KKK, there are emotional songs on rep" and "i'm so happy for the KKK! They all deserved to meet her". It's wrong and it's offensive to other people. No one's blaming each other for not knowing, but if someone doesn't feel like they need to stop referring to the sessions that way even after they've been educated about it, then it's their problem.

Literally.

Git abbreviated hashes are no longer consistent over time

So this was a fun bug that we ran into at work today…

Old-school git would always give you a 7-character short form.  19482f5c5ec0d1430f0507b1514a4f6a99bdc984 would be 19482f5 all the time forever.  

NEW git calculates the minimum length hash to avoid collisions ( git rev-list –all –abbrev=0 –abbrev-commit | awk ’{print length, $0}’| sort -nr | head -1 ), adds one to that length and goes from there.  So in my current project, 19482f5c5ec0d1430f0507b1514a4f6a99bdc984 becomes 19482f5c5e.  

Which means that if you were storing 7-character git hashes as a key somewhere (ie: a build cache), you might suddenly find yourself being forced to use 10-character hashes.  Which silently invalidates the entire set of saved git hashes.  

/Or in our case, one of our deployer machines was using the short form, and the other was using the long form and we were wondering why the cache wasn’t working properly.

HEY. HEY WHAT IS THE SHIP NAME FOR KIRK/SPOCK BECAUSE I KEEP FORGETTING IT BECAUSE MY BRAIN KEEPS SUPPLYING "KOCK" AND THEN HYSTERICAL GIGGLING OCCURS AND NOTHING ELSE I CAN THINK OF SOUNDS RIGHT.

IT IS KIRK/SPOCK YOU MODERN HEATHENS.  YOU YOUTHS AND YOUR SHIPNAMES.  YOU KIDS AND YOUR ABBREVATIONS AND YOUR LOLS AND YOUR TTYLS.  KIRK/SPOCK BELONGS TO A SIMPLER TIME, A TIME OF MAILING LISTS AND FANZINES WHERE THE MERE ACT OF THE SLASH WAS ABBREVIATION ENOUGH.  YOU ROBOTS OF THE FUTURE, WHAT SHALL YOU DO WITH THE TIME YOU SAVE NOT TYPING OUT FULL NAMES?  WILL YOU DO IMPORTANT, CHALLENGING THINGS WITH IT? 

Also I think it was K/S.

Guide: Japanese MH YouTube Videos

Sure, the Japanese community, likely from strict laws, do not have the same uploading culture as the West. However there is a rich community of MH players who upload videos!

The best way to get better in MH is to watch pro players. Learning their strategies, seeing how they approach each monster, etc. can be invaluable reference. This guide is to provide you with the Japanese words you need so that you can paste them into YouTube and find great videos to watch.

A special shoutout to YouTube user BadAssBlackOverloard (https://www.youtube.com/user/BadAssBlackOverlord) who takes some of the greatest videos on NicoNico (a site lots of Japanese players like to upload to) and publishes them on YouTube, usually with nice commentary in the comments.

Format of the search:

[game title] [weapon] [monster/quest name] [keywords] [rank] [time]

So (translated) you will see stuff like: “MH3G (Bow) Gold Rathian Solo 5m Needle”.

Most of these are optional so you can do more simple searches like “MH4 Gunlance Solo” if you like.

Terminology:

Game Title:

Remember we call it MH3G and MH4G, not “U”

Weapons:

  • GS: 大剣
  • LS:  太刀
  • SNS:  片手剣
  • DS:  双剣
  • Lance: ランス
  • GL: ガンランス (sometimes abbrev. to ガンス)
  • Hammer: ハンマー
  • Horn:  笛
  • Insect Glaive: 操虫根
  • SA:スラッシュアックス (sometime abbrev. to スラアク)
  • CB:  チャージアックス (sometimes abbr. to チャアク or 盾斧)
  • Bow: 弓
  • LBG: ライトボウガン
  • HBG:  ヘビーボウガン

*Note that some weapons like SA do not get a lot of upload love

Monster/Quest Names:

Look them up. Sorry there are too many to list. Just add 亜種 to a monster name for the subspecies or 希少種 for rare species.

Keywords:

  • Solo: ソロ (opposite is 2P, 3P, 4P)
  • Guild Quest: ギルドクエスト
  • Arena: 闘技場
  • With Guid Quest weapon: 発掘 (you can append this to weapon name)
  • Without Guild Quest weapon: 非発掘 or 生産 (you can append this to weapon name so a video with a non-guild quest LS is 生産太刀)
  • Heroics: 火事場力 (no-damage runs, some people opt not to see these as they cannot reproduce them/require very specific sets)
  • Felyne Heroics: ネコ火事場力 (see above)
  • Non-Heroics: 非火事場 (sometimes people specifically specify this when they get an insanely good time, without heroics)
  • Time attack: TA (most are TA anyway though)

Rank:

  • Low rank: 下位
  • High rank: 上位
  • G rank: G級
  • LV100: LV100 (same!)

Time:

  • Minute: 分 (add after a number. See a video of a hunt in 5min by adding “5分” to the end)
  • Needle: 針 (add after minute, so “5分針” for 5-minute needle on the clock)

Examples:

MH4 ランス アマヂュラ 5分針” for a MH4 hunt with Lance, fighting Dara Amadula and killing it in under 10 min. Yes, there are a few videos of genius players who have figured out how to do this!

MH4 片手剣 ソロ LV100” for MH4 videos with SNS that are solo LV100 guild quests.

Final Thoughts

I can update this list if there is something missing so let me know in the comments!

Happy Hunting!
