Hey so I live in Canada and I'm Norwegian on my mums side and I don't know that much about my background so I was wondering if you could direct me to reliable sources or something that could help me figure out the culture and also the language! BTW I AM A POTTERHEAD AS WELL SO THIS ISNT JUST WEIRD

well, i kind of googled this because since i am norwegian myself its difficult to know what you would want to know.

this site is quite funny tho, kind of explains basic things norwegian people take for granted, but foreigners think is quite unique about us. https://www.visitnorway.com/about/

if you have some specific questions it’s just to contact me by chat :)

all im saying is that 1. people publically talking about  how they wanna torture and stalk and kidnap ppl and shit on suggestion blogs where they get encouraged and encourage others to talk about that shit is creepy and gross

2. its funny that ppl can make those kinds of posts but start crytyping and accusing people of bullying the moment they get told that Violence Is Bad

thats it. this isnt a discussion theres, absolutely nothing else to add to it and no situation in which those two statements become false

ok like im all for a good meme but uhh now is not the fucking time like this has serious implications and i hope louis is ok .. he’s not the kind of person who does this regularly like hes had plenty of reason over the years to snap and he hasnt and it mustve taken smth pretty big for that to happen and ive already been so worried abt his mental health esp since december like???? louis is having a fucking HELL of a time, of a life, and yall think it’s appropriate to joke abt this???? this isnt like 1d being sued, which was def funny. cuz it was harmless. this is not harmless. louis is clearly struggling a hell of a lot and with good fucking reason, and yall REALLY!!!! think this is okay ????

Shrek

I watched all of the shrek movies recently. Memes are fucking immature so this is going to be kind of an uninfluenced review. I dont feel like the tim and eric or what have you style comedy where you pretend to like shrek a whole lot got into me when we were doing this as its a little dated. I decided to take the films at face value. What are they worth?

Shrek 1 - Shrek was written and created by some people who work on movies over at Dream works. Its still pretty good. The graphical quality holds up. Shrek doesnt appear in the movie but eddie murphy does make up well for the eerie silence brought about by the vanishment of each other cast member. Its so good that Will smith remembered every line of it in that other movie.

(Five tiny scream guys out of five) 

Shrek 2 - This one is still good but the DVD went to autoplay when I was microwaving popcorn and my gf made me make it go back to the root menu and the popcorn caught fire and we nearly died. The premise shows wear but the wit is still alive. The last great shrek story as simon cowell viciously tore Shrek to pieces with his fangs at the end. PS: The dvd (issued 2005) of this i have said on the back it was the “highest rated animation of all time”. Which isnt true because it gets one less tiny scream guy than the first one.

Shrek 3 - They made a whole movie but forgot to put any jokes in it. Eric idle is in it becuase john cleeses character died. Do u think they passed in the dreamworks corridor and looked awkwardly at one another? If the best your movie has to offer is referencing monty python and the holy grail then you have to do better because in the first place that movie isnt actually that funny. I loved it when i was 10 but the only jokes i can remember now are the knights of the round table song and the killer rabbit. Its better than this though.

Shrek 4 - what the hell. ok id seen the first three before in the past but this one was totally new. Reality gets erased and Shrek is unborn. A world of warcraft race struggle plays out on the screen. For some reason the graphics are worse. The acting is also worse. Everything is worse and yet i also kind of loved the mayhem of the writers deciding to create an alternate timeline where shreks insidious legacy is erased and where a cool battle happens instead. I dont know who in the office they got to voice the little man but it was scary.

Puss in boots - No this isnt a joke. This is a real movie that was in theaters. No one watched it until I did so this is actually the first review! A bunch of good animators were forced to waste their time making a movie based off a script generated by a neural network. This whole thing is a mess. In the first thirty minutes the only joke is puss in boots says “leche” instead of milk. The next hour will reveal that in every moment of puss in boots’ life he is being watched in the corner by an egg person, like a bad slenderman arg. The dartboard they use to pick fairy tale characters to be the villain must have broke halfway thru because who the hell is “kitty soft paws”? This movie genuinely may be an industry test to see if the audience will be satisfied with anything they put on the screen and I kind of love how callous it is. Its about a cat fighting an egg.

Why is it you think Carson Of Venus isnt as Popular as John Carter of mars?

The short version is this: timing.

Popularity isn’t just a question of quality, but of timing, of being the right work at the right time. A bookshelf has a funny way of smushing time together; a Carson of Venus novel written in 1939 and a John Carter of Mars novel written 25 years before seem like the same kind of story when put side by side, but they were written decades apart, in totally different worlds.

John Carter of Mars was written in the early 1910s, when science fiction stories were often just reskinned westerns and swashbucklers. Carson of Venus was written over 25+ years later, in 1939, when tastes changed and science fiction moved on to tell different kinds of stories. Carson of Venus was almost a nostalgia piece, a deliberate throwback; it sounds strange to think of nostalgia being a thing at all in the late 30s/early 1940s, but there you go.

To understand why the reaction was different, you have to understand why the Carson of Venus novels were written at all. The reason that the Carson of Venus novels and later Barsoom books exist is due to Amazing Stories editor and Edgar Rice Burroughs superfan Raymond Palmer, who once he got actual power as an editor, was such a fanboy that he used his authority as a publisher to ask Edgar Rice Burroughs to write more Barsoom stories and create a new series for Amazing Stories. Now, the amazing thing is that this wasn’t some power move for new readers, since John Carter style planetary romances were starting to fall out of fashion in the late 1930s (more on that later). The reason they got ERB back to write more John Carter and create a new series is that Barsoom Superfan Raymond Palmer wanted to see more Edgar Rice Burroughs planet romance stories.

In the early part of this century, scifi was all about adventure stories that were reskinned Westerns and swashbucklers. John Carter of Mars fit right in, and emblemized the entire trend. Come the 1930s, however, the most influential writer was Stanley G. Weinbaum, who wrote a Martian Odyssey, with non-anthropomorphized and inhuman to the point of incomprehensible Martians, deliberately as a reaction to Burroughs’ hot babe girl martians. Even in the Burroughs-style Sword & Planet romance yarn, tastes had moved to writers like Leigh Brackett, who’s take on Mars was as an eerie nightmare landscape of bat-winged hordes assembling for battle, crumbling, labyrinthine cities, and hard, pragmatic miners and desperados. The straight good vs. evil yarn was out of style.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that Carson of Venus was a low seller. Far from it – ERB was the best selling novelist of the entire 1920s and had tons of name value a decade later. Amazing Stories was the top selling science fiction pulp of its era, easily outselling Astounding Science Fiction, and the ERB stories were the top selling issues (at least until the Shaver Mystery in the mid-1940s that preceded the later mass hysteria over UFOs…but that’s a topic too bizarre to go into here). Saying that Amazing outsold Astounding won’t help you understand significant developments though. It’s a little like saying that Marvel Comics, until the 1970s, were outsold by DC Comics (DC books were viewed as quaint and old fashioned even in the 1960s). Yeah…but look what they were doing! Look who ended up being more influential.

Personally, I like the Carson of Venus books very very much, not just because they are so romantic, adventurous and wildly creative, with worlds of immortality, swordfights, pirates, and evil fishmen, but also because you can tell at that point in his life, Burroughs was getting tired of the formula he himself created and so he decided to have fun with it all. Burroughs’s most underrated attribute was his wonderful sense of humor. Compared to John Carter, Carson of Venus seems like a big goof; he screws up and ignores obvious things, like when he built a rocket and missed the Moon. For a guy who likes genteel gentlemen-athlete heroes, the overbred Amtorian aristocrats laugh at Carson, saying that his ancestry is unimpressive and that his bloodstream germs make him a menace to all life on Venus.

I think this is why people today don’t respond to the Amtor/Carson stories; people read ERB stories to feel awesome and powerful, and Carson of Napier doesn’t deliver on that well. It’s no coincidence ERB’s life story until he started writing was as a guy who was often unemployed and had trouble taking care of his family (he wrote John Carter of Mars and Tarzan on the back of letterhead from failed businesses). His stories are Walter Mitty hallucinations where Walter Mitty doesn’t wake up. They’re based on the appeal of pure, concentrated daydreams.

“I have found the perfect word to describe you.” Wade announced, and had to smother a laugh when Peter nearly fell out his bed in shock.

“Wade. It is three in the morning.” Peter flopped back against his pillows with a groan. “My first class is at eight am. What are you doing here?”

“I was in the neighborhood.”

“You are literally never in the neighborhood.” Peter corrected and threw an arm over his eyes. “Say what you need to say, Wade. I’m exhausted. And kind of mad at you. I almost got ran over by a bus today because you somehow manage to be completely distracting while we are working and–

“Okay, you know, my bad about the bus thing.” Wade admitted, but wiggled his (non existent) eyebrows. “But did you die? No, you didn’t. And you know, as thanks for that, the least you could do is invite me into bed so we could snuggle.”

Wade stuck his bottom lip out. “I came all this way and–” he grinned when Peter kicked the blankets down and rolled over to make room. Wade climbed in the twin size bed eagerly, twisting and grumbling and complaining about how small the bed was until Peter lashed out with a hard kick and sent him flying off the bed and into the wall.

“Either get in and shut up, or go away so I can sleep. I have an exam at EIGHT AM!” Peter snapped, and Wade had to hide another laugh.

Even though he had seen Peter’s strength in action many times out on patrol together, it still surprised the hell out of him when Peter used it on him. He outweighed the kid by close to a hundred pounds, and being tossed around like a stuffed animal was both terrifying and a complete turn on.

you know what i would love but would kill me to watch

kim has always been bothered that trini said she didnt have any friends so she’s determined to get trini a prom date. trini agrees because “sure why not theres no bad guys”

so kim goes all out with almost all of the guys in their school and it fails every time but on the plus side they get to hang out a lot every time it blows up in their faces and there having so much fun but at the same time kims so frustrated?? because trini is so kind and funny and p r e t t y she deserves a date!!!!! and one day kim yells about it and trini’s like “why dont you just take me then? oops” and kim internally explodes and runs away and they dont talk

finally billys like “wait why are you two fighting this isnt that hard” and jason and zach (and maybe tommy idk) are all like no billy its complicated let them figure it out and billys like “um no??? it’s not??? they both obviously love each other they should go to prom together!!! now stop messing up the morphing grid” and kim and trini make up

they tell their parents theyre going with jason and billy as their dates for cover but then at prom theyre all happy and dancing and cute in PINK AND YELLOW PROM DRESSES

and maybe they gotta go kick ass in those dresses right after or something idk my brains not able to get past how cute those two would be dancing together

one of you reblogged the ask taetaetown recieved about using eu at the end of words and how it is racist. In ur tags u said "eu is a fandom joke" "not racist" "its the same as you got no jams". i am kind of confused how it isnt racist so please explain, thanks.

Seeing as how you really are pushing for a reply I’ll give you one. It’s a fandom joke. Because we don’t go around saying it irl when we see actual snakes. It’s the same as no jams which was referring to Jimin not being funny. Its a little part of our boys and their culture that is used in regard to them. It’s not to mock them, it’s just like remembering a piece of our boys. Although some ARMY’s will use it in a racist way (outside of the fandom) the majority of us don’t and I don’t think we need to have this negativity in the fandom where we rip on each other for fandom jokes. The boys wouldn’t want that. We’ve never said it on this blog either actually so we’d like it if you didn’t start attacking us for our views.

ddeeric replied to your post “general su fans @ the su critical tag: its kind of offense to be…”

This is really not funny or ok considering a lot of ppl with su critical blogs are lgbt/non white wtf is wrong with you tbh

half of the popular posts about su critical stuff is reeking with alt right™ language and the very fact its called (x) critical makes me think of neo nazi terf stuff like it isnt a conicidence,  like i know there are real people who enjoy hyper analyzing but for every one person, theres five neonazis trying to cause shit under a guize like,,,,always with everything on this site like

#GrowingupwithStrictParents

*sighs*

okay well let me just get one thing straight. not all kids who grow up with strict parents are in the same situation.

some of us dont ever get to use technology ever. some of us never get to go out ever. some of us cant have a social life ie facebook, be in a realtionship etc. some of us have to keep straight a’s. or we’re a combination of a bunch

but all of us know something. growing up with strict parents isnt east. it isnt funny. its all hell. 

you constantly feel as if no one loves you because your parents dont say it enough. 

if you have siblings it an every child for themselves kind of race

your anxiety levels are so high because along with every other fucking thing you have to be stressed about your parents are always yelling which stresses you out even more

your parents are always telling you about the sacrifices they have made to raise you, as if they had no choice but to have kids

you never feel as if youll be a good enough child for your parents

you can never trust to tell your parents about a bad grade, cute guy or a new friend because you never know when theyll get mad

your practically stripped of your rights of a good childhood because your experiences are limited because you never go out, you’ll never experience your first kiss while you’re still a teen and most of your nights are spent studying and sneaking off on tumblr

you have to act like you go to an all girls school and cover all your skin all the time 

your parents never trust you they always think that you are a rebel and you have an unwholesome motive

you sneak around, doing things that aren’t necessarily bad to most parents, but are terrible to yours once again weakening the parent child trust

your friends would always cherish their families more than their friends, while you would always cherish them over your families

your friends eventually stop asking you if you can go out

if you ever god forbid have fun theyll use it against you for the next 5 years

if you ever get a bad grade you wont have anyone to comfort you, instead you experience a handful of yelling

your friends dont understand your situation. even your friends with hella strict parents dont understand cuz their all strict in their own ways. 

the worst part is:

you grow up alone. you feel as if there is no one to support you. you spend some nights crying yourself to sleep because of the stress your parents are giving you. you feel as if your family is disfunctional. you build walls around you that are extremely difficult to break down. 

This is a message to all of you who grow up with strict parents. they may not all apply to you, but if your heart tightens at some of these points, you need to talk to your parents. dont let them run your life. you ARE their responsibility. you deserve to feel loved by a family. you deserve to be tucked in and kissed goodnight. if it doesnt get better now, it never will. youll never end up doing something you love with someone you love because you were to scared to tell anyone that you were not okay. you can never fully ‘get rid’ of your parentss, so fix it now. 

and like completely separate train of thought but

i get so angry when i see people shitting on other’s interests for no reason other than it’s funny within their friend circle

why is people enjoying things that are harmless and fun so bad to some people that you have to go and make jokes about how cringy it is to like certain fictional characters that there’s like, nothing inherently wrong with they just are either kind of boring to you or something you don’t personally find interesting 

like who cares if some people online like a fictional character and it has a big following. i always try to find SOMETHING positive and try to understand why people like something and listen to why. i like people being excited over stuff when it’s not hurting anyone. like if it’s not hurting people and it’s just a little weird or silly to you… why does it matter 

i just don’t get why being mean is such a popular thing for ‘funny’ people. i try to be nice as much as i can. i try to put more good things into the world and i try to defend people whose interests are reduced to the subject of teasing for no other reason than ‘lol that’s boring’ or ‘lol you weirdo and your sentient skeletons i’m so much better because i don’t have an interest like THAT!’ 

like if something’s not directly hurting you why is it even annoying? why do you care so much? why do people get fame over being mean and why is it such a common thing to be so mean and celebrate that within your friend groups

if your humor revolves around being mean to others and insulting them for no reason other than it’s somehow funny to be a jerk, i really just… don’t want anything to do with you and i really can’t fathom why other people do

could you do dex for the headcanon ask? Have an awesome day!

O shit boi, im like a couple days late on this im so sorry!! but here u go for my angery baby boy
A: a realistic headcanon
he tends to just like… deal with injuries. like, one time he broke his arm but it was like a hairline fracture so it wasnt like hanging or anything but he definitely just iced it and pretended it was okay until holster & ransom literally carried him to the health office. like he just kind of keeps his head down and does what he has to which… lbr probably isnt the best for him lmfao
B: a funny headcanon
he has the most intense reddit time ever. like he"ll go from some led zeppelin subreddit to like illegal drugs and the next thing u kno hes got 30 tabs open abt k2 and the fbi is watching him.
C: a sad headcanon
dex’s brother is like, beloved in his home town. he was the best lineman on the hockey team, prom king, got a full ride to yale, his girlfriend was the prom queen, captain of the dance team, and then later became his fiancé. dex has always, always looked up to his brother and wanted to be like him.
which is why, when he and his beautiful fiancé died in a crash dex’s junior year of high school, dex was totally lost. like his idol died and with him went dex’s sense of identity and his direction in life. it really changed him, closed him off from a lot of people, made it so difficult to do the things he used to love because he loved them with his brother. what kept him going was the need to be like him, to achieve that prodigal son status. but ofc he can never be his brother, not when he’s queer and introverted and more interested in computers than being a lawyer. idk its hard for him to realize that he couldn’t do anything about it, that he still can’t, that he is as much worth living as his brother was.
D: not canon compliant
he’s trans and started out on the women’s hockey team even though he was on T & perfectly suited for the mens team. then they fiddle with shit and were able to put him on the mens roster toward the beginning of his freshman year. ( he’s def also got a bunch of hidden, badass tattoos god bless)

Think about it though, Rakan is a perfect Charmer. he is the exact opposite of Pantheon in every way. He is playful, funny, a flirt through and through. Pantheon is cold, stern and silent, your version even more so. Imagine He meets Leona is interested in Targon and she is interested in his kind. They talk and he dose what she dose. Leona will not even understand how to deal with his flirty personality and melts for him, she has a moment of weakness and badaboom, baby sun chicks (basically Azir)

// Look, I guess it can work if you want to make it work. Honestly Pantheon isnt the big problem here. With someone as nimble as Rakan I can see him meeting with Leona in private if you really want to go for that relationship. The problem is Xayah, they are legit in a relationship so idk, you could argue that she allows it? Or maybe he cheats on her because she is back in ionia, but why would he be alone. The only real way this can happen is if she okays it. I guess. which makes her part of the problem for Pantheon, so he’ll end up having two mcchickens.

hell yeah!!!! Thanks for being a cool popular person on the internet that isnt like mean and condescending always to the Less funnies, i always assume people are gonna be like that. :~~~~(

thank you! i try to get all my weird Internet Aggressions out in the form of telling wiccans i’m 100 years old and that kind of thing

gambit being confident in everything he does and likes with the context that hes trans is a lot more powerful than in the context of being cis tbh which is why I actually think that hc is very important, especially to me and others ive talked to. A LOT of trans men and nb people project themselves on him and theres a reason for it i think. 

Like,…Id like to see myself represented as a character whos considered confident, funny, and charming, but not like a hypermasculine power fantasy. Gambit could so SO easily be written that way. And again ive talked to other trans men and nb people who agree w me. 

Sorry if this doesnt make sense but like again, this hc isnt even a “i do what i want” kind of hc (i mean it IS in some ways but) like theres a very real solid reason why this hc actually means something to me.

edit: this isnt to say gambit hasnt been written as hypermasculine im saying it doesnt have to be this way and it would be really easy to write him as trans.

hi congratz to finally walking 50 km to exercise. I'm not familiar w' pokemon go but isnt the rule is getting harder to collect and level up? is you used to have a long walk ??? I'm just worry you get leg ache, the kind people say if they do leg day now and tomorrow living the regret ache. just keep on exercise okaay just slowly not too extra extreme. being fit and walks up stair without funny breathing is great feeling. keep on your progress.

Yup it gets harder in that you need more experience points every time; for example, you needed 250,000 experience points to reach level 28 (as a comparison point, for every pokemon you catch you get >200 exp points). For level 29, you need 300,000 exp points.

But I didn’t mean I walked 50km in one day. That probably took me 2-3 weeks. I don’t have a car, so I walk back and forth to work every day and that’s about the extent of my excerise sooooo I’m the complete opposite of the fitness person you’re picturing.
