Olympic runners Nikki Hamblin (New Zealand) and Abbey D’Agostino (USA) were well into the 5,000m heat when a collision sent them both hurtling to the ground. Abbey opted against giving chase to the rest of the pack in order to help rival runner Hamblin back upright.
D’Agostino however, hit the ground seconds later with an injury of her own. Despite urging the other runner onward, Hamblin returned the favour of stopping to help and wouldn’t continue the race until her competitor was back on her feet. Both were determined to finish, undeterred by the fact they were unlikely to put in a serious bid to qualify.
An injured D’Agostino then went on to limp the remaining 4½ laps for a painful 7 minutes and crossed the finish line to hug the woman she had helped; who then helped her, before being carted off in a wheelchair.
The pair had never met before, finishing with a time of 16.43 for Hamblin (29th) and 17.10 for D’Agostino (30th). Neither qualified for the upcoming final but have since been reinstated by the organisers and if fit enough, they will be allowed to compete.
I was looking at my past art recently, and for some reason it just really got me down. I feel like half of my art is really on the low-quality end, and it’s been making me really insecure about all of my art.
I sorta did a redraw of a cotton candy garnet piece I made a year ago… except more like, melancholy - to match my mood I guess. This is my way of showing myself that I’m not all bad, and I am improving. But idk, it’s still hard to be happy with any of my drawings anymore :/
all reblogs/likes/commentary is very much appreciated
Spent a few days on this but I think the results doesn’t look too bad. It’s pretty basic in terms of functionality but atleast it looks acceptable (is it?). It’s based off the Su-27 cockpit but I took some liberties in modifying it because of reasons and make it look a bit different and unique.
I’m going to try to keep the cockpit at this quality, depending on time constraints I might have to scale it down if its necessary but I hope it doesn’t come to that. Cockpits are hard to make, but when it’s at a somewhat acceptable state, it’s worth it.
Overall it was a good learning experience again tinkering with HR cockpits. I’ve learnt a lot of new techniques
I’m going to shift my focus to the gameplay side of things again. Hopefully I”ll be able to post more often and show you more interesting things.
I am aware that the sound design in the game is quite lacking. Sound design in the cockpit will be overhauled eventually, but you’re unlikely to see it for a while.
- intense, direct & strong, they can be controlling - love freedom & aren’t too fond of clingy people - often like to be noticed, though for different reasons than others might expect - prefers to get things done quickly & on their own terms - hate being vulnerable & tend to hide their emotions in fear of losing toughness - forgiving & generous by nature, they forgive easier than people may think
WATER (CANCER, SCORPIO, PISCES)
- protective, passionate & genuine, as long as you don’t get on their bad side - can read people better than most - although they love other people’s company, some alone time is a must - can go back & forth between realistic viewpoints & internal imaginings - may act shy or withdrawn at times, but this often just means that they are deep in thought or analyzing - their emotions can run very deep, & they gain a lot of strength & insight from what they feel
AIR (GEMINI, LIBRA, AQUARIUS)
- dubbed the “communicators” of the zodiac - naturally curious & are constantly thinking & coming up with new ideas - they are the humanitarians, & offer this trait in many different ways - since they have the ability to live life through their mind, they can sometimes get stuck inside their head & become emotionally detached - sometimes seen as aloof because of their tendency to daydream - love the idea of being in love, but it’s not the easiest for them to maintain relationships or even fully understand what love really is
EARTH (TAURUS, VIRGO, CAPRICORN)
- not too fond of change or new situations, but will do what is necessary - prone to feeling “not good enough” - appreciate honesty & truth, even though they hate to hear it - can be stubborn, especially when it comes to staying true to their goals & values - unless someone digs it out of them, their inner, deep feelings will remain a mystery - extremely driven & focused, with a desire to ultimately succeed - highly sensual…. for the right person
MIDNIGHT CLUB’s Nissan Fairlady Z HZ31 300ZX Kouki (???)
A curious find from a weird and old website. Each click on a link makes you download a 35kb MIDI file for no reason. So it’s best for you to take what I show here, despite the bad quality of photos. There are no discernible details posted on the photos, and all text pretty much comes out as Wingdings.
The most important thing to take from this is that a blue HZ31 is displayed amongst the likes of the ABR S130 Hosoki Midnight Club Z, possibly making it the only Z31 that was once part of the club. While it could be just some random meet, the appearances of a modified and foreign DeTomaso Pantera and heavily modified Mazda FD3S RX7 make me think otherwise.
Keith is not some stereotypical bad boy/emo kid/ asshole, y'all.
He’s a paladin of Voltron, and he was picked for a reason.
He has so many good qualities. You just have to be willing to see them. For instance:
He loves his friends. A lot. Yes, that includes Lance, even though they have different perspectives and fight sometimes.
He can be just as caring as Hunk. Remember when he went in to save Shiro from the base in S1E1? He’s loyal as f*ck.
He’s a fun loving kid! He participated in both the food goo fight and the space ‘snow'ball fight.
He wanted to go to the pool to relax (just like a normal kid), and, when the elevator got stuck, helped his buddy, Lance, escape. 🌊
He cares about his lion a lot, and in return, Red cares about him enough to defend him under any circumstances. (You think a lion just chooses/works well with anyone?)
Despite not getting along well with Lance sometimes, he still tries to bond with the dude. (“We had a bonding moment!”/ “I got your lion back for you, Lance.”)
Have you soon this boy smile? He just wants to be happy, but instead, his parents disappear, his pal goes missing, and he’s put into the difficult situation of fighting an alien race! It’s not easy.
And yeah, the other paladins handle it pretty well. Hunk stays positive, Shiro leads fearlessly and supports the team, Pidge is always on the ball with a plan, Lance makes sure everyone relaxes and thinks before acting, Coran fixes everything and is a good dad, and Allura manages, leads, and strategizes. But the other paladins handle things in their OWN ways.
So yeah, sometimes Keith is sarcastic, rushes into things without a plan, and has emotions. He’s a teenager. What did you expect? Aren’t we all like that sometimes?
So give the boy a chance. I’m not saying you can’t have favorites. Just give Keith a chance.
Hi everyone! I’ve been working on opening an Etsy store (called EmilysRecyclingBin) to sell my craft stuff, primarily earrings, but also other jewelry, scarves, greeting cards, etc. I’m planning to donate my profits to a charity (that I haven’t decided on yet). I wanted to gauge the interest for this. Reblog if you might be interested in buying from my Etsy store and put your general location in the tags (for shipping reasons). Also, if you have a suggestion of a charity to donate to or would like to see more pictures of the crafts I make, my ask box and messages are open. Thanks! :)
Here are some examples of my earrings (sorry for bad quality pictures):
when will yall stop that “dont follow [tumblr user] because they support [Problematic™ Fave]” shit like arent yall adults that understand the complexity of the human personality and that one bad quality isnt always a reason to cut someone off completely
thats some Teenage Discourse nonsense, that ridiculous shit i used to do when i was 16 And Woke™
I saw some people complaining about how the crowd was really quiet and not excited but I was uncertain because I know BTS is really popular in America and if fans had the opportunity to go to a concert, they wouldn't be that chilled out. I was skeptical and I'm glad I'm not the only one that gave people the benefit of the doubt. 😊
im glad you told me this!!! it was rly annoying and upsetting to see people assuming the worst from a low quality live stream :( im glad im not alone. since i have friends and people i trust who went im glad i held out to hear some of what actually happened too!
and even if people didn’t know the lyrics or werent cheering that loud, i dont think that’s any reason for people to be judging them as bad or ignorant fans or something… everyone enjoys themselves differently and what angered me most was that people can be so rash to come to the worst conclusion.
and also judge people who aren’t being fans like they would when, realistically, not everyone is a young person with time on their hands who is immersed in fandom social media culture. i know a lot of fans who just watch their content on youtube and do their own thing and maybe to them fanchants in korean arent common knowledge.
some fans act like they have something to prove or owe to bts but in the end, i think these fans’ completely perception of armys was fabricated by other armys and perpetuated by themselves. i dont honestly think that bts see us like that; they can think critically, they can differentiate.
they love and appreciate all their fans but some armys still feel like they have things to apologize for. it’s like they think they have to be The Best to prove something to bts and the people who shit on us.
