actually a lot of things are worse but

anonymous asked:

How accurate is the tv series Rome?

 HBO Rome is a tragedy because like WE COULD HAVE HAD IT ALL. Clearly a lot of research went into the world itself- it /looks/ like first century BC Rome, there’s so much detail in every inch of the scenery, in the costuming and the sets. But when it comes to the actual historical events, and especially the historical figures…. liberties are taken. It gets complicated and stupid also when they decide to change things based on the protagonists having to Forrest Gump their way through the political events of the late Republic. Caesar’s plot is perhaps the most ‘accurate’ but a lot of things are … changed for the worse.

They leave out a lot of important characters and events too, I don’t think you can tell Antony’s story during the 40s BC without Fulvia, i DEFINITELY don’t think you can tell Brutus’s story without Porcia, and to start the show in 52 BC without once mentioning Clodius or his murder despite the (generally well-done) emphasis on class inequality within Rome is particularly infuriating to me. I stil can’t believe HBO of all networks didn’t love Fulvia, HBO decided not to adapt the Perusine war or the Fulvia-stabbing Cicero’s tongue thing from Dio and that’s just wild to me. Along with the general historical ‘inaccuracies’ Almost everyone’s characterization is very… off with Octavia being one of the most egregious examples. I’m not even going to mention the incest bc that scene still Haunts me 
so in short Not very lol.

Hey so my local dog park is talking about putting in a rule so that dogs can not play off leash if they have on prong collars, slip collars, or head halters. This feels like a good rule to me because I've seen dogs playing rough with these types of things on and injure one another (city actually has park supervisors who do enforce rules here btw). I was wondering if you think there might be anything wrong with a rule like this?

TBH in dog parks, dogs shouldn’t be playing with any type of collars on. I even take Creed’s collar off if I see a lot of collar-grabbing during play- he does not typically grab collars but some other dogs do and it is dangerous to allow to continue! I know many stories about dogs injured or worse because a grabbed collar twisted around the jaw and broke it, or the dog got stuck and panicked and strangled the collared dog, etc. No thanks.

So often we try to make other people feel better by minimizing their pain, by telling them that it will get better (which it will) or that there are worse things in the world (which there are). But that’s not what I actually needed. What I actually needed was for someone to tell me that it hurt because it mattered.
I have found this very useful to think about over the years, and I find that it is a lot easier and more bearable to be sad when you aren’t constantly berating yourself for being sad.

Why I’m not okay with the pewdiepie thing

As a jewish person, I don’t care if pewdiepie is not actually anti-semitic. I don’t care if it was just a joke, I don’t care if it was “out of context” on the media. It doesn’t matter. It’s worse enough with the context.

The guy has 50 million subscribers, you don’t put that kind of message and laugh it off. You don’t help normalizing this kind of stuff. It’s fucked up.

There is an ENDLESS LIST of stupid funny shit you can have them write on that sign, was “death to all jews” really necessary? 

Death to all jews it’s not just some thing people said 70 years ago - No, we actually get it a lot. There are probably people out there who watch this video and smile because here is their stupid fucking radical opinion on a popular video. (the daily stormer actually calls him “our guy”). 

This sentence is not supposed to look like a joke to you, or something that can be used for a stupid meme. Please don’t be forgiving towards anti Semitic remarks while Antisemitism is clearly alive and well.

Best Friends Forever

Reader x Klaus Mikaelson

*Requested smut, read carefully ;)

Imagine: You are angry because you ex seems to be really hitting it off since you two broke up. In order to help you through it, Klaus Mikaelson, your best friend, shows up in your place. There, he decides to come clean about his own feelings. After that, things get a bit hot in your room.

Word Count: 3043 

A light rain was pouring outside, matching your horrible mood. Today you had the misfortune of bumping into your ex boyfriend, Matt Donovan, and, to make things even worse, he looked like he could not be any happier, babbling about his growing success. Like you wanted to actually know that! Urgh! And that son of a bitch still felt in the right to comment about your life and fucking laugh about it. So what you had been going out and drinking more? It was none of his business.

Taking a deep breath, you turned on the radio. Music helped a lot to discharge the anger and keep your emotions together. Right now, it was exactly what you needed. Luckily, your girl power song was on: Beyoncé’s hit Single Ladies. A smile fastly appeared, as you started to sing and dance along.

“Acting up, drink in my cup! I can’t care less what you think.” You swayed your hips to the tune and rolled your eyes, wishing you were telling him that. “I need no permission, did I mention?”

“I take you are in a good mood, Y/N.”

The singing stopped and strangled scream came out instead. It took a few seconds for you to realise who had barged into your room, invading your privacy. After the fear went off and Klaus was laughing out loud, you frowned, angry. 

“This is not funny. I could have had a heart attack.”

“You’re a banshee, I’m pretty sure you are able to predict your own death.” You narrowed your eyes. “I’m just kidding! I came back town yesterday and heard Matt was at Mystic Falls as well. Thought I’d come to see how you were doing.”

You are not your story

I see a lot of people talking about self-doubt and insecurity about their writing–I mean, let’s face it, we’re writers, sometimes we talk about/feel that more often than we actually write. ;) But I’ve seen this several times, where people ask more productive writers (and often pros) questions like “How did you get rid of the self-doubt?

And the answer is: they didn’t.

I know a lot of people who’ll say things like, “I doubt myself too much to write”, or worse, “if I can just get over my self-doubt, then I’ll write.” And I have some bad news for you: that’s not ever going to happen. People who write more don’t write more because they’ve conquered self-doubt. They write despite having self-doubt. 

Every single writer I know–and some of them have published dozens of books and are well-known–still struggles with “oh my god, what the hell am I doing? why would anybody want to read this shit?” I struggle with it AT LEAST once per any given story I write. That’s true of novels, that’s true of fanfic, that’s true of everything. The trick isn’t to wait for it to go away. The trick is to ignore it. Or look at it, and go “yeah okay, but I’m gonna do this anyway.”

I think it comes back to learning how to make a distinction between ourselves and our writing. Some people, if they’re struggling with a story, or write a bad story, go “I am a bad writer.” But that’s not it. You are not your story. If you write a bad story, or struggle with a story, all it means is that you wrote a bad story. (And trust me, no matter how long you write, you’re gonna write bad stories sometimes.) It means NOTHING about who you are as a writer. It doesn’t define you. It’s just a chance to learn something and move on to the next story.

Self-doubt paralyzes us when we get wrapped up in the idea that THIS story, RIGHT NOW, has to be perfect the first time around. That is never, ever the case. THIS story, RIGHT NOW, just has to get written. Worry about how good it is later. 

The answer to self-doubt and insecurity is to write anyway. Let it be bad if it has to be bad. It won’t be the end of the world.

Hang in there. And write anyway.

Its really pissing me off that I’m not seeing a lot about Aleppo in social media today. Like i know its just social media but.. when a massacre happens in a western country, everyone is changing their statuses and icons and saying “PRAY FOR _____” and holding vigils and crying for days. Yet i have never seen anything for Syria. They have been going through far worse than any western country in these past few years. All these celebs only care about western countries and they’re the ones with the biggest social media platform who can actually spread things. When it comes to places like Syria everyone ignores it. When it comes to places like Syria its “all lives matter” and not “pray for syria” specifically. If all lives matter then fuckin say something or do something. It takes YEARS of constant attacks in these countries and a photo of a young boy covered in blood and ruins for y'all to say anything. Why is this not the #1 thing being talked about in the world. Why is no one doing anything. Why does no one want to stand up against a mass genocide. There are thousands of people over there right now crying out for help but the world is collectively ignoring them and letting it happen. 

I thought Tiger Philanthropist was an okay episode, but...

Let’s talk about the placement.

Clearly, it wasn’t meant to air that far into Season 4.

Remember that huge list of titles from Seasons 2-4 that show everything from mid-Season 2 all the way to Last One Out of Beach City? And then this?

It was meant to air after Gem Harvest, which actually makes a LOT MORE SENSE than what they did with the episode. It was shortly after Jasper was poofed and the Smoky Quartz arc ended. I have absolutely no idea why they decided to postpone the episode until after StevenBomb 5. And even worse, they didn’t air Tiger Philanthropist until after THREE MORE EPISODES.

No wonder the whole “Amethyst feeling better about herself” thing felt so weird to bring up at this point in the show. The impact that this episode could have originally had just isn’t there anymore.

If you’re asking the son of an unemployed West Virginia coal miner to check his privilege, or appreciate the ways Barack Obama’s daughters might be underprivileged to him in certain ways, I think you’re asking too much of basic human cognition. That kid can’t look at his life and say about a group of people he doesn’t understand or interact with day to day that their lives are much worse than his. That’s one of the things that the modern discourse on racial privilege and racial disadvantage misses out. Even though I don’t think the people making these arguments are that reductive, I think that they are a lot more sophisticated in what they’re saying about how privilege operates in our society. The way that it is actually talked about appears very reductive and that’s a very significant problem.

A Response to the idea that Pence is worse than Trump

I hear a lot on here that we shouldn’t want Trump to get impeached because Pence is worse. And I get where people are coming from with that–the idea of Mike Pence in the White House is terrifying. Pence actually believes in the nightmarishly reactionary social positions that Trump only adopts to appease the GOP, and so the idea of Pence feels worse because he’s a True Believer.

But here’s the thing: Those nightmarishly represive social policies? The GOP is going to enact them regardless of which Republican is signing the bills in the Oval Office. Trump has already sold us all out, he doesn’t care.

And make no mistake, Donald Trump is more dangerous than any American President in history. Because he is, on a fundamental level, completely unqualified for the office. This is not something I would say about Mike Pence, or Ted Cruz, or, hell, probably even Sarah fucking Palin. Mike Pence is, everything else aside, a politician who has held an executive position before and has a working knowledge of how American government works.

If the leaks coming from the White House can be believed, the Trump Administration is on the verge of collapse a week in, during its honeymoon phase, without having faced any kind of crisis.

And there will be a crisis. There’ll be a hurricane in the Carolinas, or an earthquake in California, or a trade war with Mexico over that boondoggle of a wall, or an incident in the South China Sea.

And we’ll have a man leading the country who gets his information literally by watching FOX News.

Everyone reading this has an unhinged racist relative with completely incoherent political views gained from watching way too much FOX News. Imagine them leading America in a crisis, with the nuclear codes at hand.

Yeah. I’ll take the guy who is entirely predictable in his evil over the quasi-fascist narcissistic buffoon who somehow wound up in the most powerful political position on Earth.

please read

I actually never told my opinion about all those kpop wars becuase I didn’t want to cause next one BUT after MMA and MAMA things went even worse and I couldn’t let it in anymore. This may be too long but those who care about their idols please read it all and tell me how you feel about my opinion BECAUSE my opinions aren’t perfect nor yours nor anyones. We all think differetly about this situation but EVERYONE has a point somewhere.

First of all, I know that the “BTS doesn’t deserve MMA award let’s call to Melon to tell them they should give the award to EXO” war was caused mainly because of korean fans. Well, at least from what I read, everywhere were korean exo-ls complaining about it. I didn’t care about this that much because Melon CAN’T do something like this. 

Then there are, how I call it, “childish wars” between ARMYs and EXOLs. Honestly… Do you really have to? Are you that childish to complain or hate or stick out EVERY fucking thing the idols do? Do you really have to compare your idols to someone else? Are you really that low that you have to do that? The “oh look, BTS are so rude to not bow politely while recieving the award. beucase oh look Suho bowed 90° he is the existence of perfection and decency” OR “oh look, Lay’s speech was so rude, instead of thanking his fans and staff and family and members for that award that he doesn’t deserve he insulted BTS and said that they’re kings and no one can replace them.” 

*sighs* *sighs* *siiiiiiiiiiighs* *shows you my finger that is between ring finger and index finger* don’t want to be that rude so yeah, but i know you got it. 

I didn’t hear a word about BTS in Lay’s speech. I didn’t saw BTS not bowing while recieving the award. 

I fucking heard Lay being grateful and showing exo-ls their love and gratitude. I fucking saw all BTS members bowing while recieving the award and bowing 90° to fans at the end. 

SO SHUT YOUR FUCKING MOUTH. YOU JUST SEE WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE. ehm… sorry for my burst. So… Yeah, those fans who bash other idols all the time, the shame is on you, the fault is yours. Can’t you see your beloved idols are trying so hard to accomplish your dreams and wishes? They’re trying so hard to show you that they’re someone who you can be proud of. So why would you do something that can hurt them or their career or their lives or lives of their family? Why are you so selfish? Stop wearing those pink glasses and try to look at the world from someone else’s point of view. Try to understand someone else’s opinion, situation. I’m not saying you can’t have your opinion EVERYBODY CAN but try to understand sometimes.

If I could compare kpop to something, it would be food. Kpop industry in general.

Kpop is the food and fans are the eaters. 

When you’re listening to a music you either start stanning a group immediately or after some time. But that’s not important. The important is that when you eat something and you really like it you’ll eat it as much as you can. Maybe every day or every week. But there is some food that when you tasteit you don’t like it. And what do you do with food you don’t like? Do you tweet about them saying how awful they are? How much you hate them? Do you tweet about every signle piece of the food every day saying how they don’t deserve to be on plate? Or do you just throw it away and don’t eat it anymore? You’ll stop eating it right? You’ll say your mom or idk whoever to not to cook that again because you don’t like it. You’ll come to restaurant and order something you like and not something you don’t like. You won’t order something and then stare at it the whole time, then bringing your phone and tweeting about how you hate it. It’s waste of your time and money, right? 

So tell me WHY the fuck do you do this to idols? 

Why don’t you just live happy life listening to your favorite group, tweeting them about how much you love them and how much are you proud of them. Why would you spend your time bashing other’s succes, effort and dreams?

Also I’m not saying you can’t say something against someone who is bashing your idol BUT try to be more mature than them and talk to them. If they don’t listen, they are not worth it. They’re not worth your effort. So just leave them. You said what you wanted and that’s enough.

Man, I don’t know if I told everything but I hope so. I also hope that someone will read it till the end and think about it. I’m not saying that you should listen to me but try to think and understand. This is just my opinion and I needed to write my thoughts out because my mind would just *BAM* if I didn’t.

As one wise human said: “Don’t judge the fandom because of a fan. But don’t judge a fan because of the fandom either.” There is nothing more accurate than this.

Also this is not related to ARMYs and EXOLs only! I just write them as an example because I’m ARMY and I also love listening to EXO and well let’s be honest… those two fandoms are getting worse and worse. But still, I’m not ashamed of calling myself an ARMY because I’m so so so proud to call myself a fan of BTS. AND YOU should be proud too! Be proud of what and who you like!

As I said this is related to kpop industry in general.

it’s a mess i know but i hope you get my point

Why is my ADHD worse?/Why doesn’t my medication work some days?/Does ADHD get worse with age?
  • We don’t know for sure why your ADHD might seem worse some days than others, but in general if you are not getting enough sleep, are not eating healthfully, are not exercising regularly, and/or are under a lot of stress, your symptoms will naturally be harder to manage.
  • This is the same with medication: it simply works better when all those other things are in alignment.
  • It’s not so much that ADHD gets worse with age as it is that life circumstances change and symptoms get harder to control. (Except for menopause. That definitely makes ADHD worse.)
  • As we know, stress, diet, exercise, and sleep all impact our symptoms. When any of these things is out of whack, our symptoms can become a lot harder to control. So when your life circumstances change - like you go away to college, or you change jobs, or you get married or have a baby - your symptoms will naturally be more difficult to manage.
  • This is why it’s so important to develop strategies to manage your symptoms and not just rely on medication to do the job. If you have systems in place to keep you on track and help you stay on top of things, you’re less likely to lose the thread when life happens.


there’s a line between “let’s bash the cast for their decisions” and “i’m going to be critical of a character’s decisions” and i think some people really need to learn that the later is okay

discussing a character’s flaws is okay

like? i really don’t like the way some people are taking actual discussion of vax’s flaws and dismissing it all as petty shippers or acting as if the people harassing the cast are doing the exact same thing as the people trying to talk about vax’s worse character traits from a critical/constructive view-point

a lot of posts feel almost weirdly guilt-trip-y to me? “you’re upset with what this character did and you’re being respectful in how you discuss it but it doesn’t matter because you shouldn’t be doing that at all”. like a lot of them read as people trying to silence legitimate conversations because people get upset or emotional.

and obviously there are people who take it too far and leave “respectful discussion territory” and head into something else entirely which is Not Okay and i agree those people should calm down but……. i don’t know?

like i love vex and percy but i’ve talked about it when they fuck up too? like i dragged percy over the fucking coals when he pulled that dumb shit and stabbed raishan and put his family and city in danger. but i feel almost like we CAN’T have that same discussion about vax for some reason without it getting written off entirely?

idk there’s a Line and i feel like there’s room for discussion and if your first instinct when you see any form of criticism on vox machina (any of them!) that’s done in a respectful manner is to dismiss it as overreacting, maybe you should take a deep breath and step back for a moment?

like man i can’t believe that the way we end 2016 in the cr fandom is with people on both sides of a heated discussion taking things too far but i guess here we are

There is something people who have never been abused, or raped will never truly understand. More often than not, the aftermath of being abused/raped is a lot worse than actually being in that situation. Purely because of the thoughts and the self destruction that follows. There is no time scale for healing. For some it may take a few months, for others it could take a few years but one thing is for sure, we will never stop fighting. We have to wake up every day and chose to reclaim our lives.

Arthur! Run!

Arthur hates hearing those words, usually together. He really, really does. True, he hasn’t heard them a lot—most people are very much concerned about their own skin alone when things go sour. In all honesty, he would rather deal with that over those that actually care about him.

Worse, everything’s on fire.

It’s not the time to play, ‘Whose fault is this?’ But, the answer is that it’s Alfred’s. It’s always Alfred's—Alfred, with his stupid armor and his stupid sword and his stupid, sunbeam smile. Alfred whom, currently, only has a shield between himself and the dragon that’s stepping on him. Logically, the dragon’s far superior in strength, so Arthur supposes Alfred would be dead already if the overgrown serpent weren’t having a lot of fun spitting fire everywhere.

Their supplies are burning, their newly met party members are burning, and Arthur’s books are burning. Everything’s burning and it’s a sheer miracle that Arthur isn’t, that Arthur’s not engulfed in flames, and that Arthur’s mage robes haven’t succumbed to singe as imbued with magic as they are.

The worst part is that he’s absolutely useless here. What can he do? His job is to sit in the back with salt and chalks. His job is to recite incantations from books that very much require you to hone the power of the book itself in order to cast magic. He has a few books like that and right now they’re all burning, the magic screaming, and there’s nothing he can do.

He’s not from a powerful race, he’s not particularly talented, and he has no trump card or magic 'get out of danger free’ item.

The dungeon party has failed; they will all die here.

There are worse things I could do,
Than go with a boy or two.

“Sam. Dean. Hurry up and find the bones. I think I saw five-oh patrolling the lot.”

“Well princess, if you got your ass down here and help us dig, maybe we’d be done already…” Dean huffs in a frustrated voice while Sam chuckles at your “arguement.” Sam knows you both have feelings for each other but are too stubborn and pig-headed to actually do anything about it.  So these little “arguments” will continue until one of you eventually snaps and reveals your feelings or runs away.

Even though the neighborhood thinks I’m trashy,
And no good,
I suppose it could be true,
But there are worse things I could do.

“Y/N? Why are you dressed like…well….that?” Dean asks in a worried tone.

She was wearing a red and black pinstriped corset that showed way too much bust (in Dean’s opinion anyway), a black pleated skater mini skirt that showed off her muscular legs beautifully, and calf-length faux leather 4-inch stiletto heels.

“Like what?” she asks with a raised brow and angrily pursed lips

“Nevermind. I’m just gonna stay here and do some research.  You and Sammy have fun.” Dean mumbles while nervously running his hands across the back of his neck repeatedly.

I could flirt with all the guys,
Smile at them and bat my eyes.
Press against them when we dance,
Make them think they stand a chance,
Then refuse to see it through.
That’s a thing I’d never do.

“Y/N, please don’t do anything rash like take that douchebag back to the motel.” Dean pleads with you nervously with a hint of disgust.

“Dean, relax. I can handle myself. Besides, I never said I was going to bring him back with me tonight…:” Y/N whispers into his ear before sauntering over to the mark.

I could stay home every night,
Wait around for Mr. Right.
Take cold showers every day,
And throw my life away,
On a dream that won’t come true.

Y/N was sitting alone, curled in on herself under the covers of her motel bed while trying to shut out the sounds of sex filling the room through the thin walls.

Tears run silently down her face as she hears the woman screaming out for Dean and she could barely hear his moans and groans. Her heart aches at the feeling that he will never be with someone like her. Besides, why would Dean Winchester ever love her when he can have any woman he likes? There must be something wrong with her for Dean to ignore the fact that she wears her heart on her sleeve. Hell, even Castiel knows that she loves Dean and he’s oblivious to most common things like flirting or good natured bantering back and forth that has been the staple of Y/N and Dean’s “relationship.”

I could hurt someone like me,
Out of spite or jealousy.
I don’t steal and I don’t lie,
But I can feel and I can cry.
A fact I’ll bet you never knew.
But to cry in front of you,
That’s the worst thing I could do.

“I can’t do this anymore. I can’t watch him go on with these bar flies. Every new conquest steals a little more of my soul and the love I feel for him turns to pain. I’m tired of being alone and in pain. I think that after this hunt, I’m going to pack up and leave. I’ll just disappear and Dean will forget about me easily enough. It really is better this way.” Y/N mutters to herself as she drowns her sorrows and tears into the bottle of Jack she got from the corner market earlier.

Y/N packs the rest of her belongings away and hitches a ride heading out of town. As the tears fall silently down her cheeks, she prays that Dean can find the happiness he deserves even though it will never be with her. Maybe in the years to come, she can forget about the broken heart she got from loving the emerald-eyed hunter but for now, she resigns herself to the constant ache of unrequited love settles into every fiber of her being.

*Dean’s Pov*

“I wonder what I did wrong, Sammy? Y/N doesn’t talk to me anymore. She barely looks at me and I think I did something stupid to drive her away. I know she’s in the life and it’s dangerous for her just knowing me but I can’t help myself and the way I feel about her. I want to, no I need to have her by my side. When she’s not near me, I panic. Of course I do something stupid but she always forgives me. I think that this time is different though… This time I know that there are worse things than having her die in my arms.” Like having her leave me for good.

- telling people to kill themselves - “oh i didnt like their opinion so they should just die”; if you do this you’re an asshole sorry 

- saying every member of a group is bad - “all men are abusers” sounds an awful lot worse when compared to another ‘all’ phrase “all muslims are terrorists”; stop generalising groups and recognise that all of them have their extremists 

- pretending that women are gods - “women cant be abusers bc theyre oppressed uwu”; women can abuse and rape and kill just like men can, but tumblr seems to think that if a woman rapes a man she should be celebrated. no she should be in prison. just because a crime is committed by a woman does not excuse it

feel free to add more,,,

Even if Logan hadn’t made Rory pregnant, he still would have been her Christopher.  That’s his archetype in the show.  

Archetypes are separate from characterisation.  While I think that Logan and Christopher have a lot in common (and I actually think Logan is worse in some ways), ASP writing in the pregnancy doesn’t decide that.  The baby just made things very literal.  Logan has always been put in the role as a rich, slightly unreliable boyfriend Rory has a weakness for, like Christopher is for Lorelai.

Logan sharing traits with other characters doesn’t divorce him from his role as Christopher in the story.   With these archetypes, ASP isn’t arguing that Logan and Jess and Rory are exact copies of Christopher, Luke and Lorelai.  She’s using the archetypes to show the parallel.  Logan, Rory and Jess can borrow traits and have their own individuality.  

It’s the same thing with Jess being Rory’s Luke. The scenes of Jess helping Rory find her path shows that he is her person, like Luke is Lorelai’s true love, but it’s in a different way.  The repetition suggests that Jess will be there in the same way that Luke was for Lorelai, but it doesn’t reflect on Jess and Rory as characters and their compatibility.  The parallel doesn’t determine that.  Their strengths and flaws as a couple are completely independent from Luke and Lorelai. It doesn’t mean that Jess is going to pine after Rory for twenty years.  

While I disliked the decision to make Rory pregnant, and suggestion that we repeat our parents’ lives, it doesn’t alter the archetypes which were originally in place.  There’s a possibility that Rory will  terminate her pregnancy (though if more episodes are made, I’m sure Rory will keep the baby).   Logan will be a different father than Christopher, Rory a different mother to Lorelai and Jess a different partner than Luke.  They’re following a similar story but are still their own characters.
