basically-bullshit

People seem to think this post debunks the legitimacy of Freddie’s birth certificate.

Big Larries are telling their followers that you can just order that form and fill in the blanks with anything you’d like and that is SO completely far from the truth. That informational copy of Freddie’s birth certificate is a certified copy. All that the informational copy is missing is a impressed/embossed seal. What InTouch posted was an average, informational, birth certificate.

I’m just going to copy what I posted last night (which I’ve also added to):

1. “So no one seems to care that right under the InTouch logo is a statement “For Information Only. Not a legal document to establish paternity”. [EDIT: apparently it says IDENTITY.]” <— This isn’t even what it says omg

Per your link: “An informational copy contains the same information as an authorized copy, but will have a legend across the face with the statement “INFORMATIONAL, NOT A VALID DOCUMENT TO ESTABLISH IDENTITY.” <— This is what is actually says on the document obtained by InTouch

2. “This is not the certificate the parents would receive. This is a copy that ANYONE can BUY from the state.

Yeah. Obviously. I highly doubt anyone from InTouch birthed this child??? What does this have to do with anything? Why would anyone besides Briana and Louis have an authorized copy. And the document is signed by Briana and Louis. It just isn’t a live signature on the informational copy.

It is an informational copy of a real birth certificate. Anyone can purchase one from the state because it is not an authorized copy. That’s why it’s watermarked with “VOID VOID VOID” That doesn’t mean the document is made up nonsense, it just can’t be used officially. Like if you wanted to obtain a passport you’d have to use an authorized copy. 

3. “You can even buy a them online.” 

This is irrelevant. You can purchase them online, because it is public record. You aren’t purchasing them from fakebirthcertificates.com. You are purchasing them from the State of California. Are you suggesting the County Clerk’s office is falsifying documents? Are you suggesting InTouch is forging government documents? Do you even know how much trouble they would be in if they did that. Falsifying documents is a FELONY.

The certificate InTouch published isn’t strange at all. It has all the ear markings of a perfectly valid document. You just choose not to see this because you don’t want to believe in the existence of this child. Why not spare yourself from writing all of this nonsense and just say: “The birth certificate isn’t real because I don’t want it to be.”

Also if you google “Trump v. The State of Hawaii” you get this:

“Trump v. The State of Hawaii” is not a real court case, so I wouldn’t be lecturing anyone on how to use google. What you do find is a wiki page on “Barack Obama citizenship conspiracy theories” Idk about you, but I’m sure as Hell not going to discredit this birth certificate based on a blurb about Donald Trump, found on a random wiki page, sorry.

What will happen if SOPA passes later today.

Basically, SOPA is an act that will be passed to ‘stop internet piracy.' 

This law will allow not only the Government to control what is to be censored on the internet, but it will also allow Corporations to do the same.

So, basically it’ll be like the situation in China, but maybe even worse. Anything you read on the internet will have gone through a filter. That means any news you watch will be only what the people controlling the filters, in the case the Government, want you to know. The Government fucks up in Foreign Affairs? You won’t hear about it. We invade a foreign nation? Unless someone you know was sent there, you’ll have no idea. It puts a HUGE block between what goes on in the world and what we know. This is a really, really fucking bad thing. It keeps people kind of dumbed down.

Also, Corporations can choose what to censor. So, if a private website decides that they don’t like what Wal-Mart is doing as of late, about how they treat employees and how they are wrecking the economy, Wal-Mart could decide to take action against that website, and have it DDOS-ed, or just shut down entirely.

As for social networking, it’d be done. Social Networking has caused more problems to the Government than anything else. Twitter was actually one of the best ways to stay in communication during the protests in both Egypt and Libya. Companies had to turn off cell phone reception to all it’s customers to ensure people couldn’t electronically document what was going on in these protests. Social Networking unites people, and makes them angry. These are the two things that the Government fears most, other than intelligence.

Reddit, and sites like it, would be done, for a lot of reasons. It’s a great source of first hand news, and again, it keeps people up to date, keeps them informed, unites them, and makes them angry. That is more than enough reason to shut down Reddit. Also, if some new kid shows up on Reddit, and posts any link to any torrent ever, that gives the Government cause under this bill to shut down reddit entirely. Even if it’s one link that’s downvoted to oblivion.

There’s a lot more to it, but with this and the detainment bill, things have gotten incredibly bad. I very seriously may decide to live abroad after this bill is passed. 

Not sure if this made a lot of sense. I’m a lil distracted.

If you get the chance, watch the debate rightttt here:  http://www.keepthewebopen.com/sopa 

This really, really sucks.

(Of course, there is a lot more to it, and none of it is good.)

ok here’s a truly wild my immortal theory. buckle up kids. 

raven is real, tara is real, they’re actually 13/14-year-old emo kids. they’re super super best friends five ever, raven gets tara into fanfiction and helps her edit her cringeworthy story because she’s a good friend and wants to humor her. when they have the fight around chapter 16, raven breaks into tara’s account in an act of petty revenge. (they were besties, she might well have known her password or been able to easily guess it.)

Then, she is inspired. She knows this fic is shit, she knows Tara is distressed by the attention and flames it is receiving. So does she delete it? Nah, son, there are too many lulz to be had. Instead, she hijacks it. Everything that ever annoyed her about Tara the person becomes distorted in Ebony. Her disregard for grammar, her self-centered nature, her transparent sueishness, her obsession with brands and basic-ass Hot Topic bullshit. Revenge on her ex-friend turns into realizing that this monstrosity she’s writing is way more fun than her fics. She abandons her account, and takes on Tara’s full-time and THAT is why debate over its legitimacy persists. Those horrible first chapters ARE real, but the LATER ones are trolling.

"Does he know that people are worried rn" lmao about what?

uhhhhhh idk what you see on your dash or who you follow, but for the past week people are overthinking about stupid shit like bts disbanding since bighit is releasing a new boy group and other things since it’s makbang week about how they haven’t won, aren’t considered a hip hop group, etc.

“straight white boys” this, and “annoying white girls” that.

i’m just. i’m done. ENOUGH. associating any type of race with any type of negativity is bullshit on every level.

“nothing is scarier than a drunk straight white male”

really? REALLY? because ONLY straight white males have the capability of being nasty, angry drunks. okay.

“don’t take a white girl’s Starbucks away!!!!”

shut the fuck UP already.

do not tell me that prejudice is okay towards them because there are white males/females that are prejudiced towards others. that just makes you as messed up as whatever prejudiced assholes you’re referring to in the first place.

“you’re just upset because you’re white!!! now you know how it feels.” first of all, i’m not white, my mother is hispanic and my dad is irish. so i deal with my own fair share of bullshit because i’m mixed. “you can’t refer to yourself as hispanic because you don’t look it, therefore you don’t have to put up with judgments that other ‘more obvious-looking’ hispanics do” “don’t call yourself white!!!! you’re negating your dominican heritage.”

but we won’t get into that.

but yes?? obviously it does bug me to be discriminated against. just as much as it bothers you. you don’t like it. and i don’t like it. so no, i will not accept your bullshit towards me. you don’t need to demean someone just to show them how much it hurts you to be disrespected in such a way; especially if that person never fucking caused anyone any harm.

UGH.

I just want to say that when I first got One Direction up on my dash from mutual followers, it was mostly of the rumours about Harry and Louis being in a secret relationship. At first I thought, well, that’s endearing. Then I saw lots of gifs pop up, pictures of the two of them with very intimate looks on their faces, videos of them touching and bantering and in general being what looked like best friends in love. However, it took me •quite a while• to figure out something essential.

The more I read up on it, the more pictures and gifs I saw, the more theories about matching tattoos and time spent together but one or the other hidden behind the scenes, all of this had one question gnawing in the back of my head. Why was this so secret? They’re obviously very fond of each other. Is it because they’re in a band together? It could amount to bad PR and unnecessary internal drama. Though it would likely not be the first time it’s happened in the course of pop history. Was it because they’re, after what I’ve heard from elsewhere, allegedly dating other people, or are supposed to date other people but they’re cheating on one part or the other? I could not for the life of me understand why this thing was such a big deal. Can’t people see the love that’s going on between them as clearly as I can? Why aren’t they just together?

Then, I scrutinised the evidence, gave a long, hard stare at their picture. Their names were underneath. And I thought, OH. That’s why. For the first time I realised that Harry and Louis were of the same sex. That their relationship would have another word added onto it, and make them somehow into something different to other people. They would be in a gay relationship, and would be classified as ‘the two gay band members from One Direction who’s a couple’. Then, everything else added up. However, it made me quite sad to see how degrading their treatment has been, and how unfair it must be to have to keep your love hidden.

If you remove all labels from man, how would you know who she is?
You don’t.

the game’s worst enemies are as follows
-rats, all of them, every single one of them
-labyrinth mad men, u know the ones that run like something out of a Japanese horror movie
-those pits of poison
-brainsuckers, those guys are bullshit without a flamesprayer and i want mY INSIGHT BACk??

clubs deuce. now the first thing we have to look at here when rating this name is the word “clubs”. is it talking about the clubs you hit things with or the clubs you party at??? both? does this mean this character parties at clubs WITH clubs? what the fuck?? i mean i can see it tho but still. secondly the word “deuce”. now in my humble opinion the word “deuce” isn’t so much of a word as it is a bullshit combination of letters PRETENDING to BE a word. therefore its meaningless and i dont care about it.

so this name basically means “bullshit combination of letters i dont care about that parties at clubs with clubs”. very descriptive and to the point, i like it. 

this name rated 7.25 coolpoints originally, but because of the dumb hat its now rated 2.23 coolpoints.

I'm curious for all your kids - #1: Origins! How did you come up with the concept for your OC? aaand #2: Were they originally well received by the fandom? Or if they’re fandomless, did the RP community take to them right away or was it hard to get attention? <3

  • #1: Origins! How did you come up with the concept for your OC?

To be honest, for my DA characters, I kind of just… reverse-engineer characters from the content of the game? Like going in, I have no idea what I’m going to end up with, I just… grab a handful of traits and do stuff.

I guess it’s kind of like… on my first go, I’ll play a prototype character, a 100% lawful good, Paladin archetype, to get to know the story, and from that point on, and starting from that bare-bones character, I tailor each of them to fit… mostly my whims, but also the canon background, and the ways I think the canon events would affect a person’s psyche.

For example, I first played a diplomatic, sweet, young Aeducan Warden? My canon is a cunning, battle-hardened veteran soldier, an adult woman who is Not To Be Fucked With on an epic revenge quest, sworn to kill one brother to avenge the other, later struggling with the emptiness of having accomplished her one goal in life, and fighting her own mortality in a race against time itself.

By second playthrough, my blue and mild-mannered, polite, wishy-washy custom Lady-Hawke turned into a Purple Garrett, a man always at the wrong place at the right time, set out to protect his sister and Anders, all while wreaking as much havoc as possible and fervently denying that his disregard for his own personal safety could in any way be attributed to the deep-seated self-loathing spawned by his complete and utter inability to do anything right.

Started Inquisition as a pretty, Blue Lady Lavellan? Ended up with front row seats to the rapid decay of Lord Trevelyan’s mental health and my own version of “Are you there, Maker? It’s me, the crippling doubt that you exist”.

… And several different shades of “Fine, I’ll do it, but I’m going to complain about it the whole time.” Most of them born just so I could get into a handful of pairs of pants at once and because I wanted to see the other options too.

I don’t know what the heck happens in-between. I get hit with a sad-shovel, probably.

  • #2: Were they originally well received by the fandom? Or if they’re fandomless, did the RP community take to them right away or was it hard to get attention? 

I don’t really know if it even counts as much a reception… I guess I myself am a bit of a recluse, so most of the things I do and make kind of drift under the radar. :) Ray has gotten some attention as of late, most of it positive, but that’s about it. We’re stealthy folk, quietly sliding some filth into the fandom-room under the door every once in a while.

I sometimes miss my RP days, it was so much easier to kind of… slot myself into an existing group (mostly made up of teenagers) in dire need of fresh blood than it is to get some sort of a name in a franchise populated mostly by adult fans who are much better than me in everything! :)


Ask me about my OCs!

anonymous asked:

I didn't get antis before and I don't get them now. We want to believe Larry is real and Louis doesn't have a kid and that's okay as long as we're not putting it right in louis' face? But i think most of the tumblr larries stick to their niche on tumblr and don't go shouting about it? So why would Louis (and HL) be bothered if they can just not look at Larry accounts. (though i know not every larry is a quiet and calm larry *coughtwittercough*)

like, shipping has never bothered bands or celebrities before. this is the very first time where apparently Larries are “emotionally traumatizing” the celebs in question.

so basically, all the bullshit noise the antis make is just noise. its not true, it’s the stupid mental gymnastics they have to perform to make us the bad guys.

there is no logic. there is no reason. there is only the fear that we’re right.

and tomorrow I get to do the cross-campus marathon three times because I guess I wanted burnout and dealing with overlap between classes and labs that are on opposite ends of campus

fuckin a why do the geology and biology buildings have to be so damn far apart
