How did Warhammer 40,000 become the symbol of pony-brutalization? - Sugarcube Corner - MLP Forums

As with many others, of all the images, memes, etc. I’ve seen that feature the brutalization of MLP, the Space Marines from Warhammer 40,000 are used the most frequently, or possibly all the time. Do these haters really think they’re the most “manly” thing in the world that could easily bring down an entire race of ponies with one flick of the wrist? I just think manliness in general is absolutely stupid…READ MORE

Yang Hyun Suk reveals “If You” is the saddest song BIGBANG has ever written

Yang Hyun Suk revealed that “If You” is the saddest song BIGBANG has ever written and spoke about their upcoming release for [D] in the MADE series.

The YG Entertainment CEO spoke about BIGBANG’s new song saying, “When I listened to the song, there was a moment where my heart skipped a beat. It is the saddest song BIGBANG has released since their debut nine years ago. If I, who is in my 40s, becomes this emotional from the song, I believe those in their teens and twenties will definitely shed tears together. I think this is the first time I’m more excited about a release than BIGBANG.”

He went on to reveal that “If You” is also his favorite song out of album (specifically the tracks that have already been release) which has stirred excitement among VIPs.

In addition, he also stated that the second track that will be released, “Sober,” will be a summer song to contrast the sad “If You” track.

If You” and their second [D] track “Sober” will be released on July 1st and will be the third release following [M]’s “Loser” and “Bae Bae,” and [A]‘s “Bang Bang Bang” and “We Like to Party.”

John 9:35-41

35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out, and having found him he said, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?”

36 He answered, “And who is he, sir, that I may believe in him?” 

37 Jesus said to him, “You have seen him, and it is he who is speaking to you.” 38 He said, “Lord, I believe,” and he worshiped him. 

39 Jesus said, “For judgment I came into this world, that those who do not see may see, and those who see may become blind.” 

40 Some of the Pharisees near him heard these things, and said to him, “Are we also blind?” 

41 Jesus said to them,“If you were blind, you would have no guilt;[b] but now that you say, ‘We see,’ your guilt remains.

Breaking the Wall

Ever since I was starting to work in the area of Social Computing I had a dream to get an MIT Media Lab degree. I couldn’t really understand why it was my dream, but it sounded really cool. One of my colleagues, a brilliant mobile researcher, joint us from MIT Media Lab and has shown me the very cool gadgets she built there. Another colleague who I was fortunate to manage, told me about cool projects he did there. I never got to even apply. I did my Masters in Communications with great people and the best supervisor and I was happy. But dreams have this feature of sitting in your head. And now I dream of getting a Ph.D. from MIT Media Lab. Will I one day? Sounds fictional, but who knows? On the paper there is a wall between me and this dream. I have a great job, I provide for my family and becoming a student after 40 sounds crazy. But it is a dream, so who knows what will happen?

I am looking at examples of other people, some of whom I am fortunate to call friends. One who left his great job at Microsoft, became a TED star, a PhD student and a great public speaker. Another one who left it all, a great job in high tech, money and fame and became a restaurant owner. It might have been difficult at first, but he is a real star now with a flourishing business. And yet another one who left a high position in a big company and became a University professor with a talk show of his own.

But I get really excited when I see someone who has a dream, pursues it and never gives u despite the hardship of life. The hero of this post had no easy life. He worked in various low paying jobs, had to get our of debt many times. But he is and always has been a brilliant musician and poet. He has always been a backbone of any band he was in. He was the one writing music and lyrics, he was the one keeping all the others adrift, he was the one making sure they practice every day. People said to him that he should grow up. People said to him that nobody really needs rock music. People said to him that he stinks. He did not really care. He was working his jobs, he was providing for his family, he was a responsible father - but he invested his soul into his music. So many times he felt that he reached the wall. So many times he felt helpless. But he always said that his music will show the way. His new band made one great album and then another. They travelled the country and sometimes had to do shows in half empty pubs. But they did not really care. They played on. He was the leader and the singer and the poet. And great people sticked with him. Finally his band became one of the best around - playing together they built a real team that played wonderful music together. And one day a famous producer happened to hear them. He got interested. He came to Israel. He came to our small town. He listened to them play. And he invited them to the biggest rock festival in Russia. A festival where all the big bands are playing every year. A festival that usually starts it all for young and promising bands. A festival that usually is a beginning of the great success. I do not know whether the wall that stood between my friend and success has already been broken. Maybe this festival will be a “one of” experience. But I can’t really believe that. Because the guy has so much energy and talks to the Universe so clearly that it is only the beginning.

So how to break your wall? Think about your dream. Think hard. And do something for your dream. Every day. Every step of the way. Start by just hitting the bricks of your wall. One by one. Then you will see a small hole. Then the hole will be bigger and then your wall will be broken. Nobody said breaking the wall was easy. It is difficult. You will want to stop a thousand times. But seeing the wall crumble, seeing the audience shout your name, hearing the standing ovation - it is all worth it. When my friend will go on this stage he will see all of that and he will sing his songs - songs about Breaking the Wall.

【問38の解説】


38 Q: If she _____ of her brother’s dire circumstances, she would have taken the first flight to Chicago.

選択肢は以下でした。

1. was informed
2. had informed
3. had been informed


さあ、これはなかなか難しいですよね?


まず基本の inform の使い方をおさえておきましょう!

be informed of ~ : ~ について知らされる。

inform とは知らせる(情報を与える)

ということです。

inform が名詞になると information (情報)ですね。


ということで、2. had informed は答えではないですね。



また今回は難易度の高い単語がでてきました!

dire【形】
悲惨な、恐ろしい
緊急の、切迫した


dire circumstances
緊急事態

ということですね。



あとは自制の問題ですが、

文脈は…

もし彼女が弟の緊急事態を知らされていたら、初めてシカゴに飛んでいっていただろう。

まずこれは事実ではない。そして過去の予測なので、

仮定法の過去ですね。

物事の前後を考えてみると、

(仮定で)「知らされていた」のが飛んで行っていただろう時間よりも前(過去の時間よりもさらに過去)

ということで、「知っていた」も過去の過去、大過去と同じ形になりますね。



If she had been informed of her brother’s dire circumstances, she would have taken the first flight to Chicago.

もし彼女の弟の緊急事態のことを知らされていたら、彼女ははじめてシカゴに飛行機で行っていただろう。



【問39の解説】

39. Q: In the last decade of 1900s, _____ more dependent on telecommunications technology than ever before.

選択肢は以下でした。

1. the world became
2. the world has become
3. the world is becoming



In the last decade of 1900s, _____ more dependent on telecommunications technology than ever before.
1990年代の最後の10年には、世界はいままでになく通信技術に依存することになった。

この問題も、時制の問題ですね!

とりあえず過去なので、

すぐに 3. the world is becoming は選択肢から外しましょう。


そして、ヒントとなるのが、

In the last decade of 1900s,

1990年代の最後の10年には、という意味ですが、

基本的に For 10 years 「10年間ずっと」という感じで使うことは多いですが、

In last 10 years など In と 現在完了形の相性はよくありません。


また今回の場合、

10年間ずっと、依存することになり続ける(依存度を強め続ける)という意味になり

文脈に合わなくなってしまいます。


ということで答えは

1. the world became


In the last decade of 1900s, the world became more dependent on telecommunications technology than ever before.

1990年代の最後の10年には、世界はいままでになく通信技術に依存することになった。


【問40の解説】

40. Q: _____ that vegetables are healthier than beef.

選択肢は以下でした。

1. Certain it is
2. Certainly it is
3. It is certain


チャンス問題ですね!!!

すぐに外してほしいのは


1. Certain it is that ~
2. Certainly it is that ~


It is that ~

なんていう使い方、聞いたこともありませんね。却下w


It is certain that SV ~



~は確かだ。という意味ですね。


It is certain that vegetables are healthier than beef.

野菜が牛肉よりも健康であることは確かだ。





超重要事項がたくさん出てきました!

明日も頑張っていきましょう!!
