blank-points

my fave thing in the filler episodes of ace back in alabasta is the scene where filler kid #2 shoots a gun at ace and ace freaking deflects the bullet at point blank range with a tiny rock

like i don’t really buy that he could even do that first of all, because the amount of speed and precision it’d take is astronomical, but the fact that he does it DESPITE BEING A LOGIA DEVIL FRUIT USER WHO THE BULLET WOULD HAVE GONE STRAIGHT THROUGH ANYWAY is even more hilarious to me omfg.  like wow way to be extra ace i love you 

Let It Go, Supergirl Writers. Lena Is Good.

Do you ever think about the lengths people went to in order to try and make it seem like Lena was associated with Cadmus and get super annoyed?

I get that there was video evidence, but in a world with shape-shifting aliens and insanely advanced technology, video evidence on its own shouldn’t have been enough proof to convict her–though none of the characters bothered pointing this out, even when the entire previous episode was about shape-shifters.

But currently, I’m talking about the extra lengths people went to prove that Lena is involved with Cadmus.



This scene in particular. Kara point blank lays out just a few of the ways that Lena has worked against Cadmus and has saved lives.



But then James counters with this argument, and it is treated as a completely logical and justified despite its absurdity. 



Alright James–and by James, I mean the writing staff that insist on pushing this plot point even when it has been sufficiently worn out–let’s take a closer look at what happened between Lena and Corben in episode 2x01 to see just how illogical this logic is.

So, remember now, Corben approached Lena dressed as a police officer. Lena, unaware of anyone that would be watching her–meaning she had no reason to pretend–did not recognize Corben, and thought he was there to help. Corben then pulled a gun on Lena. He fired it, but Alex arrived just in time to disrupt his aim. Alex disarmed him. They struggled. Corben disarmed Alex of her gun. He managed to grab his gun off the ground, and then Supergirl showed up. He tried to take Alex hostage, but as soon as he turned to leave, Lena popped up with Alex’s gun and shot him in the torso.

Now, you mean to tell me that it is a completely valid argument that this entire scenario was one big setup? Even without James or anyone else–except maybe Alex, but she was so ooc and silent in 2x12 while Kara struggled that she didn’t say a word either way–being there to realize Lena did not recognize Corben, it still is so outrageous, it’s annoying.

Because what James is saying is that Corben pointed a gun at an unarmed Lena and fired his weapon, both of them knowing someone would show up right at the exact nanosecond needed in order to knock his hand away so that he didn’t actually shoot Lena? 




That Corben and Lena knew this person would have a gun of their own and Corben would be able to disarm them of it so that Lena could pick it up?




That Supergirl would show up and that Corben would have to take this person hostage at gunpoint with his gun he had retrieved from the ground so that someone would have no choice but to take him out?




That Lena would come back at exactly the right moment with Alex’s gun, and shoot Corben right through the torso, in the perfect spot needed for the experiment, without accidently killing him or hitting anyone else?



James is claiming they were able to know all of these variables and plan every second of this setup? Seriously? Seriously?? And nobody bothers to point out how ridiculous that is? They all just stand there, avoiding eye contact with Kara. It’s so beyond ridiculous.

And I know the writers want to do a will-she/won’t she be evil type thing with Lena, but they need to open their eyes and realize that ship has long sailed. And really, it is their own fault, and a fault they’ve struggled with all season. Instead of having multi-episode arcs, they try to tie everything up every single episode. It’s why the season is so repetitive and frustrating. Nobody is advancing. Nothing is changing. They have a single storyline idea for a character–in this case, is Lena good or evil–and carry out a condensed arc of that same storyline every episode they are in. It is causing a lot of problems in all the various storylines of the show.

For this particular storyline, the problem is that an evil Lena has no canon support because every time the characters doubt her, Lena has stepped up. Kara was right. Lena has already done too much good to be associated with an evil organization like Cadmus. And after 2x12, her mother has done too much harm to her for her to ever have a reason to side with her family. All the writers can do now is use insane logic like in the scene with James to try and twist canon events, or to have her stare into the distance with ominous music playing in the background. And honestly, it’s going to become old real quick, much like all the other storylines on the show this season have.


~~Sorry for the crap gifs. The size limit on tumblr is ridiculous, and I did this all from my phone.

I also accidentally befriended a pro Widowmaker by the name of Belpheagor. She kept landing headshots on me and after like the 6th time I wrote in the chat, “Widow plz” because I know from prior experience that it tends to work. 

She wrote back, “Mercy I’m sorry, but I have to.” After that she only landed body shots on me, but she was definitely more hesitant to land any shots on me. 

Later, I was going around the back of the point to try and get to someone and I ran point blank into her. She stared at me through her scope for a few seconds; I “Hello!”ed to try and pull on her heartstrings. She shot the Pharah coming up behind me, gave me a look, and then grappled away. 

She wrote in the chat, “Did you see how I didn’t shoot you” and next thing I know I had a friend request from her.

hamilton is the strangest fucking concept to me and i despise everything about it like how the hell can someone say “alexander hamilton was a bisexual trans boy” or “hercules mulligan probably has anxiety and loves cuddles and soft blankets” in complete sincerity without wanting to shoot themself point blank in their own face

Reaper:
-Didn’t kill Katya Volskaya.
-Didn’t kill Jack or Ana (despite having Jack not aware that he was there and within point blank range of his shotgun).
-Didn’t steal Doomfist’s gauntlet.
-Didn’t steal the Overwatch data from Winston.
-Not only are the people on his hit list not getting crossed off, but they are actively coming back to life.

Shout out to Gabriel Reyes for literally never having anything go right in his life ever.

The Weather Channel is so done with Breitbart’s climate denial bullshit

  • In a Nov. 30 article, Breitbart used a Weather Channel video to stoke climate change conspiracy theories.
  • In the story, columnist James Delingpole accused climate change “alarmists” of “icy silence” on reports that global temperature saw its “steepest fall on record” this year.
  • To support their claims, Delingpole embedded a video from the Weather Channel about La Niña impact on winter in New England.
  • Not so fast, said the Weather Channel.
  • In a note to Breitbart, Weather Channel staff wrote point-blank: “Earth is not cooling, climate change is real and please stop using our video to mislead Americans.”
  • The Weather Channel called the Breitbart article a “prime example of cherry-picking” information. Read more

it’s been said a million times before but how is it that months after bryke confirmed that korra and asami are bisexual people still insist on saying otherwise over and over

like i understand if you didn’t know about the confirmation but still calling them “lesbian babes uwu” and pretending makorra never happened is pretty much the same thing as insisting they’re straight and pretending korrasami never happened no matter what distorted angle you’re looking at it’s still erasure

@seanmcloughlin and followers had some VERY interesting ideas for Antisepticeye! thanks for all your ideas folks!!

This was the product of me being at a Christmas party with Too Many People, and then listening to Jack play Layers of Fear at like 2-6 am while I drew this.

My favorite thing about the gif with hair floof in the wind is how content Shiro is in wind that is gusting hard enough to blow another person away and to force Lance to brace himself behind Hunk. That kind of wind /hurts/ and Shiro is just so happy and content.

Fellow friends of tumblr, here it is: definitive proof that Shiro embodies the qualities of the Guardian of Air and Sky.

Our paladin planning to break her oath

Paladin OOC: “If I’m going out, I’m going out big, you can’t unring the bell.”

Paladin (Who is a dragonborn): “As I’m pinning her down I lean over her and whisper “Die” before using my breath weapon at point blank range.“

DM: "I’ll count that as an automatic crit. The room starts to smell like burning flesh, and her face starts to look like Anakin Skywalker’s.”

The rest of us had to role to see if we threw up from the smell.

Next Round:

Paladin: “I’m going to hold her hands down with my knees, throw my shield to the side, and two hand my flaming axe on her face.”

DM: “Okay, roll to attack.”

Paladin: “…Nat 20.”

DM: “Okay, roll double the fire damage since you’re basically attacking a 3rd degree burn victim.”

Paladin: “Okay I rolled 44 damage.”

DM: “Wow okay. You slam your flaming axe down into her head again, and again, and again. The amount of blood and facial tissue spraying around the room is more than you would find on a battle field, even the barbarian looks horrified at the massacre going on in the corner.”

Paladin OOC: “Hey, I said I was going out big.”

Skinwalker Ranch

Skinwalker Ranch is a ranch located in Utah that is known for paranormal and extraterrestrial occurrences. Many people have reported strange events in the area, ranging from cryptids to unexplained lights in the sky. Some of the most unnerving encounters include:

  • An encounter with an unkillable wolf has been reported on the property, telling of a wolf that was completely unaffected after being shot five times at point blank range while attacking a calf. The wolf was unaffected, and simply walked away.
  • Other strange wolves have been spotted on the property, including one so large that it towered above a car being driven by one of the ranch’s occupants.
  • Sometimes in the night, the entire pasture would be lit up as though illuminated by powerful stadium lights. Bright shafts of light would also be seen beaming from the ground to the sky.
  • Unexplained noises occurred frequently, with sounds like heavy, earth-moving machinery being heard from underground, and mysterious voices being heard as they worked in the pasture, seemingly floating above them.
  • Crop circles and other anomalies like circular ice patterns and large holes in the ground would appear all over the ranch.
  • Cattle mutilations were incredibly common, resulting in the loss of 20% of the herd in only 20 months. One day, all four of the ranch’s bulls went missing, and after a search were discovered stuffed into a small trailer like sardines. The trailer was locked, and the locks were covered in cobwebs. No one could explain how the locks were untouched, or how four massive, aggressive bulls ended up crammed together in a small trailer.
  • UFOs of various shapes and colours were often spotted flying back and forth above the ranch. On one occasion, the owner of the ranch thought he saw an RV in the pasture, and, thinking it was lost tourists, went out to help. As he approached what he thought was an RV, it rose straight into the air and flew out of sight.

Skinwalker Ranch remains under investigation, and is fenced off and heavily guarded to this day.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:
The women of the walking dead are so much stronger-willed than the men. Michonne never lost her will to fight, even after losing her family. Rosita was willing to shoot at Negan point-blank.
Maggie stood up after watching her husband be brutally murdered, while very sick, and told Rick to fight. Sasha had watched Abraham die in front of her, and she still made it her priority to comfort Rosita and then get Maggie to Hilltop. Carol is strong willed in living her life by her rules, and nobody else’s. Tara lost her girlfriend, fought her way back to her family, watched two people get slaughtered in front of her in her home, and still volunteered to take the blame for the bullet.
Point is, the women of the walking dead own my heart and soul.
