and his intelligence

anonymous asked:

Imagine Shikamaru with his father's intelligence and his mother's work ethic. That's the premise of 'Chiaroscuro' by boomvroomshroom on fanfic.

Yeah, I know. I beta’d that fic, actually. ^-^

I want to confess my undying love for him

I’m switching schools in a month and I want to confess everything to F. How I fell in love with the way he sucks on the strings of his sweaters, how I fell in love with his purity and innocence, with his pain and suffering, with his passions and intelligence. I want to tell him how I can’t imagine myself with anyone but him, and how I see him in everyone I love. But I don’t want to sound desperate and unintelligible. Since he probally only sees me as a student I don’t see the point in confessing. But there’s the what if factor. What if he feels the same, what if he won’t judge, but most importantly what if I don’t tell him, will I regret it later, will I regret keeping it a secret?!? Because what if I never forget about him..

Hey, i read the anon posts and umm if i remember correctly we saw that Scott took an advanced class with Lydia, right? And he did studied for english... I mean we can say that Scott was hardworking student. By the way, i think Stiles was mentally ill, when you think about his panic attacks and nightmares....

Stiles definitely has mental illness, but ADHD is not one of them, because ADHD isn’t a mental illness. It’s a learning disability. Some people view them as points on a spectrum, others view them as overlapping categories. This is a very long-standing disagreement among educators and psychologists, so this is discourse I’m going to handwave away, because it’s ultimately irrelevant to my point.

Whether or not Stiles has ADHD - or any mental illness or learning disability - has no impact on his intelligence. That anon was only pissed at me because I said people don’t have to call Scott dumb to be able to call Stiles smart. Making the fight centered on Stiles and ADHD had nothing to do with ADHD and almost nothing to do with Stiles.

A lot of people in fandom write Scott as an idiot, despite the fact he does well in class when he isn’t worrying about life-and-death situations outside of class.

Conversely, Stiles is written as a genius who is at the top of his class after Lydia, despite the fact we have been given clear indications of him struggling in class, and no indication of what his grades and classes are like.

This isn’t to say I think Scott is actually a genius or Stiles is an idiot. This was to highlight how fandom pushes characters into convenient archetypes based on stigmas and stereotypes surrounding education and learning ability.

Hardison and his cute hat in The Future Job

Leo Valdez is a fan favorite, but the fandom seriously discredits his intelligence

I’m re-reading The Lost Hero and he could literally complete math equations college students couldn’t complete at the age of 8. 

There’s no point going on about the Argo 2 and Festus, we all remember that.

The kid is literally a genius, yet I keep seeing memes of him where the punchline is ‘Oh leo, ur so slow xD’



Salacious report claims Trump received intel from Russia on enemies, ‘golden shower’ show

  • On Tuesday, CNN reported U.S. intelligence officials presented President Obama and President-elect Trump with a two-page dossier containing evidence the Russian government claims it obtained compromising information on Trump as part of an wide-ranging operation to throw the Nov. 8 presidential elections against Hillary Clinton.
  • While CNN did not report the nature of the information Russia allegedly has on the president-elect, BuzzFeed News has posted what it says is a copy of the report the two-page dossier is based on, listing “specific, unverified and potentially unverifiable allegations of contact between Trump aides and Russian operatives, and graphic claims of sexual acts documented by the Russians.”
  • The full 35 page report states Russian intelligence assets have been “cultivating, supporting and assisting Trump for at least five years” with the aim of encouraging “splits and divisions in western alliance.”
  • According to the assessment, multiple sources have confirmed Trump accepted Russian intelligence on his political enemies — and those same intelligence sources have obtained a video of Trump in a Moscow hotel room with prostitutes performing a “golden showers (urination) show in front of him.”
  • The act was allegedly performed on a bed Obama and his wife, first lady Michelle Obama, had previously slept on. READ MORE
  • Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen says the salacious intelligence dossier is nothing more than “fake news.”
  • “Somebody is having a lot of fun at your expense,” Michael Cohen, special counsel to Trump, laughingly told Mic in a phone interview Tuesday night.
  • “It’s so ridiculous on so many levels. Clearly the person who created this did so from their imagination or did so hoping that the liberal media would run with this fake story for whatever rationale they might have.” Read more

NOTE: BuzzFeed News specifies that “the allegations are unverified, and the report contains errors.”

Trump continues to brush off Russian cyberattacks, suggesting the ends justify the means

  • Trump continues to brush off the Russian cyberattacks against Democrats in 2016 
  • He suggested in a tweet that what was revealed in the hacks justified the means by which the information was collected. (Above)
  • He is still publicly denying Russia’s role in the attacks, playing dumb about what he knows about the hackers’ nationalities 
  • This is despite having been advised on the subject in his classified intelligence briefings.
  • U.S. intelligence officials unanimously believe the attacks were carried out by the Russians in order to create chaos and undermine faith in American democracy.
  • Democrats and Republicans alike called Trump out for his Friday morning tweet that sought to downplay the hacks. Read more

  • Archie is a Hufflepuff. He’s just trying to quietly live his life and do what he likes. Poor kiddo. Let him relax.
  • Betty is a Slytherin. She works behind the scenes, works hard to be perfect, and she’s clever. I like to think she comes from a long line of Slytherin women.
  • Veronica is a Gryffindor. She’s honest, brave, kind and a good leader. She is very chivalrous to Betty. 
  • Jughead is a Ravenclaw. He is very smart but chooses to use his intelligence for what suits him. He’s seen as a little bit of an outcast. 
  • Kevin is a Hufflepuff. He just likes to watch everyone else’s drama and laugh.
  • Cheryl is a Gryffindor. She can’t shut up. She is being so brave through everything she’s gone through. She is very prideful.
  • Josie is a Slytherin. She is ambitious and hardworking.
  • Ms. Grundy is a squib and I hate her.

Apparently, Miss Cullen and Miss Hale have a presentation for us.

Where Does Trump Get His News?

Since winning the presidential election, Donald Trump has reportedly skipped out on the majority of his intelligence briefings; this past Sunday, Trump made headlines after sharing false information blaming his loss of the popular vote on mass voter fraud — a claim previously reported by the conspiracy news site Infowars. It’s been widely reported that Trump is an obsessive consumer of cable news — he has himself admitted to receiving at least a portion of his military advice from “the shows.” But, pundits and chyrons aside, relatively little is known about where the next president will find the news and commentary that might color his time in office. What exactly is Trump’s media diet?

BuzzFeed News analyzed all the links Donald Trump tweeted since he launched his presidential campaign to determine where the president-elect gets his news.

anonymous asked:

In one of your recent posts you called Chuuya a disappointment, I know you were mostly joking but honestly Chuuya's role (or lack thereof) has been pretty disappointing so far imo. I want to know what you think about his character and popularity. So sorry if this has already been asked.

I’ve covered a bit about Chuuya and the rest of Port Mafia in this post. About his character and personality, I have no new thoughts so you can check out some of what I’ve written here. As you can tell, I really like Chuuya, and while I don’t want him swallowing up everyone else in terms of screentime, given his surprising popularity I’m slightly miffed we haven’t been given any good side materials. Even better if there are no mentions of his ex-partner.

Okay, so let’s look back at 36.5. With no one else higher in the chain of command, we can assume that Chuuya has temporarily taken on the role of a commander for the mafia.They surround the building and are in prime position to attack, but once Chuuya hears that the ADA members have gathered together in one place with the intention to fight and hold them off, he decides to switch gears and prepare for a frontal assault.

What the hell Chuuya? You have numbers on your side! Why didn’t you position at least three or four men to guard the other exits? You had snipers at the ready, you had their paths blocked. Even if they escaped, someone could have sent out an alert to report the general direction of where ADA members were headed. What a great start.

(Another tactic, something horrible but one that should fit in with the mafia’s methods… After finding out where Fukuzawa is being treated, stealthily position mafia members inside the hospital, having them blend in as patients and medical workers. Have them keep their distance from the floor where Fukuzawa is in to avoid suspicion (after all, they’re up against detectives). Once everything is set, Chuuya could go and make that flashy entrance again, but this time they have members threatening to harm hospital staff if they don’t hand over Fukuzawa. This plan may or may not fail depending on how ADA would react, but it sure beats showing up at the front door and asking for a brawl.)

I also talked about how Chuuya could have at least looked around to find evidence of foul play when he faced off against Ranpo. Or at least, let us hear in his mind how he doesn’t feel right about the situation. That he charged in recklessly even if there was a false sense of security… You mean to tell me that despite years in the mafia, he still hasn’t honed a sharpened battle instinct to sniff out that something is wrong? Man, do they pick up executives by drawing straws? Maybe I could be one too?

On one hand, you could say this is consistent with how he is normally portrayed: brash, straightforward, and quick to anger. At the same time, in this dire situation and in his current position, you’d think Chuuya would stop and be more cautious when making his moves. Compared to Kunikida, Ranpo, Atsushi, Tanizaki, Kyouka and even Akutagawa, he has shown no resolve or strength of character in this arc so far, only running his big mouth and charging forward mindlessly. Frankly I’m not even hoping for much in the next chapters. Ranpo would be brilliant, of course, while we don’t know whether Chuuya will remain as utterly dull and disappointing as he is now. I guess for Mr Asagiri, Chuuya being ½ of soukoku is more than enough…

“You always underestimated me”

Requested by @devilishly-handsome-pirate

So while this new tease from the next episode is about the EQ, this sentence pretty much applies to any OUAT villain who ever messed with Hook.

They were always underestimating his intelligence, his honor, his bravery, his redemption, and above all his loyalty and love for Emma Swan. And they all lived to regret it.

*edited with the new addition from the last episode. Although we didn’t actually see him saying it, we know it was script!
