brain workout

Middle Child Syndrome

Prompt: Jason and Batsis! Reader who is also an antihero, and they have that type of relationship that is only really seen in movies/fiction (like they never fight and always have the same ideas 😂) and they’re in a sticky situation and one yells “what the hell, this crap never happens to Cass!” And the other day “that’s because Cass is a good person with good karma”

Words: 279

AN: This is one of my all time favorite Jason stories. Just so you know.

      You do your best to ignore the glare Jason is shooting you. You finally give in and look at him. He has a black eye, and his lip is bleeding but other than that he seems to be okay. “This is your fault.”

          You wince, “I know.”

          “You just had to have a go at Riddler.”

          You shrug, “He’s fun to go up against. He gives my brain a workout.”

          Jason’s eyes narrow, “That is so not the point of what we’re doing.”

          “I thought the point was to take down the bad guys.”

          “It is.”

          “And I can’t have fun while I do it?”

          “Not if it nearly gets us killed, and I have to call Bruce in.”

          You shrug, “We’ve already died once, how bad could a second time be?”

          When the vein in his forehead becomes prominent you can’t help but think you’ve hit a nerve. “We only get one redo, there is no third chance!”

          “What about third time’s the charm?”

          “THAT DOES NOT APPLY TO LIFE!!!!” Pinching the bridge of his nose Jason groans, “This never happens when I team up with Cass.”

          You scowl, “That’s because Cass is a good person with good Karma. I kill people, that doesn’t exactly put me in the green with my Karma Credit Score!”

          Jason smirks, “Did I hit a nerve?”

          You reload your gun, “I don’t like being compared to my sister!”

          Jason full out grins, “Ahh, there’s the middle child syndrome.”

          You don’t say a word. You just let your fist fly, and grin when Jason’s nose makes a crunching sound.

          “You no good little …”

         “Watch your language or I’ll tell Alfred.”

I really want to finish this properly but i just came home after being in the hospital for 36 hours—a day and a half of brain workout. Couldn’t concentrate fully the second day so I made this, based on that new PCap photo taken at DWE. I added Clara because there was still a lot of space on the paper. I noticed it’s Valentine’s Day when I finished doing the lineart lol. XD

yes i drew it on a notebook papee kindly provided by a friend.

Hi, hey there, hello. Please do not compare yourself to 9/11 firefighters unless your job is LITERALLY saving lives by putting your own at risk

Yesterday, it seems British actor Gregg Sulkin wasn’t quite thinking straight after an exhausting workout. While many of us may think about grabbing a smoothie or achieving world domination, Sulkin’s post-workout brain operates a bit differently. Aaaaand the world responded.

One day, one rhyme- Day 743

Its forty-three degrees, no doubt
Shoes might melt on the road;
Air con’s getting quite the workout,
Brains running in ‘safe’ mode;
Hot water runs from all the taps;
Storms drop dust and not rain;
Savor the breeze when a bird flaps;
It’s too hot to complain;
We can cook eggs on the windscreen,
Make tea straight from the hose;
Grass is yellow instead of green;
How Aussie summer goes.

  • Me: *frets endlessly about my weight from the doctor's office visit* Still 20 lbs heavier than my highest weight ever. Sigh. I have to do something about this.
  • My brain: You're sick. You're not changing anything now. Be kind to yourself.
  • Me: Maybe I can start dieting a little.
  • My brain: You are routinely coughing until you vomit. Can we focus on that, please?
  • Me: ...I wonder if can manage a really easy workout.
  • My brain: You may LITERALLY die.
  • Me: I hate this. This is why I'm unlovable.
  • My brain: You're "unlovable" because you reduce your self-worth to your weight and compare yourself to your wealthy and well-adjusted peers and friends who don't have ANY of the markers for weight that you do and REFUSE to believe anyone could ever love you, to the point that you're so scared that you've been single for three years.
  • Me: ...I should nap.
  • My brain: Good. Restart me before I kill you and I CAN DO THAT YOU KNOW.

Pro-tip for reluctant runners (like me) — add this to your playlist and watch the miles flyyy byyy (mostly because Nicki’s rap will give you superhuman endurance).

ok so i’m getting a fuckload of anons digging up posts from a bit ago for some reason. probably trying to start drama?? who knows it’s entertaining and a good brain workout

anyway here are my beliefs:

phan isn’t real unless confirmed by dan and phil themselves, please don’t shove it down other people’s/d+p’s throats that ‘PHAN IS REAL’ because a) it makes people uncomfortable b) it makes d+p uncomfortable and c) it’s annoying and shows the phandom as fetishizers

tøp is incredibly problematic (plus it makes me uncomfortable so please don’t tag me in tøp stuff) and i want nothing to do with it

i don’t feel like shipping real life people is good bc it makes people uncomfortable, as well as the people being shipped (idc if it’s not my own fandom it’s still bad)

don’t ship minors with adults?? i’m not even going to explain this just if someone is 18 or over and being shipped with someone younger than 18 maybe don’t do that :/

romantic relationships with one/two year age gaps (a 16 y/o and a 18 y/o) are fine (assuming it’s non-abusive) as long as they don’t have sex/perform sexual acts. even for fictional characters. i’m not sure how i feel about ‘aging up’ people because it’s sort of still pedophilia?? like do you guys remember undertale from way back when with frisk and sans like.. i hope i never see something like that again

if two characters hate each other i guess it’s okay to ship them but if it’s abusive you can stop typing this second and don’t ship it

don’t fetishize or i’ll kill your ass. it’s not 'sin’, 'hot yaoiz’ whatever. and poc are not there to be your 'exotic’ sexual desire or some shit

POC! CHARACTERS! NEED! TO! STOP! BEING! LABELLED! AS! ACE! IN! EVERYTHING! yes ace representation is good but not every poc character is ace! poc are already desexualized enough from what i’ve seen

i’ll add more to this soon

Every time you listen to music, you're actually giving yourself a deep, full-brain workout .

It starts with the auditory cortex, which is mainly responsible for taking the music you hear and parsing the most rudimentary features, such as pitch and volume. It works with the cerebellum to break down a stream of musical information into its component parts: pitch, timbre, spatial location and duration. It’s then processed by the mesolimbic system and things get really interesting.
