can i just post this one by itself

Honestly, who can ever keep up with what celebrity tumblr decides to hate from week to week. Yesterday we loved Sasha and were talking about how all 4 of the top queens were great, today half of tumblr is having a temper tantrum. Also, I just find it hilarious how most of tumblr considers itself pro-feminist and progressive, but the only celebrities they vilify are either queer or female. Like, I literally saw a post yesterday celebrating Snoop Dogg, for getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame or something, and the same post included the fact Zoe Saldana was getting one too and all the comments were singling her, saying she’s trash or whatever, and not a single person pointed out or cared that Snoop has been vocally homophobic, transphobic, and misogynistic.

So basically, my point is that, yes, some celebrities suck, but take whatever tumblr has to say about them with a grain of salt because tumblr discourse is a hive of hypocritical selective outrage.

Dude I can’t believe That One Post is still blowing up too?? Like I’m not going to respond to it anymore because it already blew up into a bunch of shit but it’s amazing that people even read this and thought “attack on ship” when it was literally in response to seeing a bunch of “this ship is gross” and me being like “Well I don’t think there was really anything wrong with the ship and there’s just a bunch of Bad Stuff associated with it, but you should blame that more on weird fandom stuff and not the ship itself”

The origin and meaning of Yuuri Katsuki’s name

So, I just had the most interesting YOI conversation with my cousin, a Japanese student. Here’s what I learned about Yuuri Katsuki’s name:

1. His last name

In kanji, ‘Katsuki’ is written as ‘勝生’; the first character, 勝, means ‘victory’ or ‘to win’ but can also mean ‘winner’ (shall I say ‘victor’) if you add the right suffix. Now the second character, 生, means ‘student’. so Yuuri’s last name literally means ‘student of a winner’ or ‘student of a victor’. I think this speaks for itself and I could just end this post here, but there’s more.

2. His first name

Yuuri, ‘勇利’ in kanji; ‘勇’ means ‘bravery’ or ‘courage’ and ‘利’ means ‘benefit’, so his first name means ‘one, who benefits from courage/bravery’.
succeeds through courage?


tl;dr - Katsuki Yuuri means ‘student of a victor who benefits from courage’ and I think that is beautiful.

(special thanks to @did-you-say-food for telling me about this, you’re the best)

(I’m sure someone already analysed Yuuri’s name but I was so excited I just wanted to make a post about this with the information I got)

sasuke & c-ptsd: a meta

okay so i talk a lot about this headcanon and i decided to finally do a detailed meta about it.

first and foremost, let’s talk about what c-ptsd is. c-ptsd stands for complex post traumatic stress disorder, a differing disorder from the more common ptsd. it’s worth noting that c-ptsd isn’t an officially recognized disorder in the DSM - it’s been deemed too similar to ptsd and bpd for its own diagnosis, but it’s still used informally and i believe has its merit. i have ptsd, and would describe it more specifically as c-ptsd.

anyway, onto the specifics, and what this means for sasuke himself:

1. the trauma

putting under a cut because this baby is looong and image-heavy. sorry if you’re mobile and it shows the whole thing.

Kalagang #01

1x01 LIMBIC RESONANCE

The first episode of first season – and where it all begins. We don’t see Kalagang interaction yet, but we’re able to see them having an unknown connection after Angelica gives birth (and kills herself). We all know by now, for Kala and Wolfgang, water is their element – like some sort of medium of their connection since their births.

Kala: But I heard it. I heard the thunder, and rain.

So here we see Kalagang’s very first connection, although they’re not aware of it. And not surprisingly, rain – water. We can also notice that rain works as a symbol for juxtaposition of these two opposite characters. Weather in India is warm and sunny; we instantly know she’s been raised by loving family, her father supports her, and she’s happy with her life. She is the sunshine.

Original post [x] @regalstormborn

Scene changes; Wolfgang makes his first appearance. It’s raining, everyone’s wearing black, it’s funeral – I’ve seen posts about how Wolfgang and Kala have this Hades and Persephone aesthetic. Well, he is definitely giving god of death vibe here. He hasn’t spoken a word, but we already know what kind of person he is. So the rain is not just a medium helping Kalagang connect/sense each other, but also a symbol to contrast one from the other.

Original post [x] @osxarisaac

I mentioned in previous post that Wolfgang doesn’t show his emotions. This scene clearly shows that side of him. Especially when his Uncle Sergei talks about Wolfgang’s father, by now we already know how Wolfgang despises his father, and yet Wolfgang doesn’t even flinch his eyes or frown. We can see that he has learned to put every emotion – mostly anger – inside of him and suppress it. And I also want to point out how calm he is in this occasion. Maybe because he’s not close to his family, but it kinda gave me this feeling of…he’s so used to death, like death always surrounds him. It’s almost as same as breathing.

Original post [x] @mufalo

Even when he is all alone in front his father’s tombstone, he just doesn’t show his emotions. Instead he simply gives his signature smirk to his dad (and piss). That’s how much he is used to hiding his feelings. Which makes me thrilled to see how he slowly opens up and shows different kinds of emotions as he develops relationship with Kala.

Original post [x@sense8edit

The last Kalagang moment in this episode is when Kala visits Ganesha temple. When she gives food to Ganesha telling she’s put some peanuts and whatsoever, I’ve never realized how genuinely happy she was, before her marriage. I don’t think we now get to see her smile like that quite often in season 2 – except of course when she’s with her cluster and Wolfgang – I’ll talk more about this in upcoming posts, but before we move on, I want to point out that this post isn’t just about how Kala and Wolfgang develop their relationship; it’s also about how each has their own personal growth.

So it’s important to see that her pure smile right there which represents innocence, and also naivety. What do I mean by that? Physically, she is grown-up. But at the same time, Kala’s just started her journey of becoming one. For me, I think being an adult is a life-long journey; to have our hearts and minds be mature, wise, and complete are not as easy as physical growth.

As we grow up we find that heart is so much complicated than we think. And Kala is basically on the verge of discovering that. In other words, she’s still just a little girl who’s just stepping into the real world. Yes I know she is smart, independent, and strong – I’m not saying she’s childish, at all. What I’m saying is discovering new emotions, learning how to accept them and to embrace people whom are connected for that emotions are gonna be new to both Kala and Wolfgang.

That being said, the whole temple scene can be defined as a starting point of her journey – a little girl on the threshold.

Kala: [Rajan is] the perfect husband for me. Except for one little fact. I do not love him.

Original post [x] @sensatessource

And that threshold is marriage. Now we all know that marrying Rajan wouldn’t automatically help Kala turn into a grown-up woman. I already mentioned that it’s more than that. That’s just what our society thinks. But I would say, symbolically, the concept of marriage itself is definitely something new – something big to Kala. It’s a huge step.  She thinks Rajan is okay; she thinks it’s the right thing to do. Still she’s torn up between what is best for her and what is best for heart. This dilemma will go on through out the series. It will make her struggle for sure, but also will enable Kala to figure out what it means to be a woman – or adult in general.

Anyhow, guess who appears after Kala confesses her dilemma?

Original post [x] @netflixsense8

None other than Wolfgang Bogdanow (Well, technically if you rewatch it, Felix’s face comes out before Wolfgang’s…but lol, who cares). Funny thing is when I first watched the series, I actually didn’t know they’re gonna be together, so I didn’t know the significance of Wolfgang appearing right after scene of Kala in the temple. So it’s another fun for me, personally, to catch this small moments implying they are connected deeply.


I think that’s pretty much it for this episode. Well, I’ve only done two posts of Kalagang series, but I’m really actually having fun going over their moments from the beginning. Hope you enjoyed it too. I’m trying to come up with hashtag for this series of Kalagang posts so that you can find them easily. If you have any ideas, just throw them to me :) Also, if you have any Kalagang moments I’ve missed, or if you wanna just add up to my thoughts please leave comments. I’d love to know what you think

Heyaa! I dunno if this is asked but... Yah have some tips in drawing? No need to answer if you don't.

Practice, I know it’s a common Tip, but It’s true. Start out with Basics, Anatomy and the Physical “Weight” of a Character. Don’t be afraid to get messy, make sure to add curves in the right places, no person is really flat (unless by style choice of course). If you want to Draw faster, Gestures helped me with that, or just Quick Doodles I thought would be Fun to try and do, Get as much Motion as you can in a Drawin’.. Try not to Align things too perfectly (such as the Angle of shoulders, make one higher or lower for better character, same goes most facial features). I’m no Professional, but here’s a Quick Example of my Process…

Ahaha, did they think they had the exclusivity of online assholery?

royalpeko  asked:

(A question for the admin) Is it difficult to program bots like this? Ive been looking through quite a few bots on here and other sites and it seems very interesting, though i doubt i could do it myself.

nope it is not hard at all. i 100% can not program for shit. i use a visual editor and cheap bots done quick to post to a twitter account with ifttt handling cross-posting it to tumblr. 

the code itself is super simple, it just has 4 things: base meme text with one or more slots in it, short meme text that gets slotted in, and then suffixes and prefixes that occasionally get added at the end or the start. so the post “is Star Wars homestuck *looks directly into the camera like on the office*” is made up of the base phrase “is _____ homestuck”, with “Star Wars” slotted in, and the end phrase “*looks directly into the camera like on the office*” added on at the end.

it’s not a smart bot. it can’t learn from input or anything, i just add memes when i see them or from submissions. (that is also why its grammar is so bad.) 

this bot stuff is totally accessible for anyone who wants to play with it even if you have 0 programming experience, though you can make it really complicated if you want to. there are def bots that people who know how to program good can make with that skill but what i do has more in common with magnetic poetry than actual coding.

if you want more examples of what you can do with this kind of thing, i’ve made (as of writing this) 77 of these things. most of them just live on twitter.

I have had these designs lying around for nearly a year now? about time i did something with them! added in a few other ones and smartened up some of the paint work. 

There will DEFINITELY be inaccuracies in the weapons, so please don’t think I don’t know XD it’s just a little bit of fun to explore some more variations and morphology in Pokemon. the original post can be found HERE. and the pokedex entries can be found below the read more line.

Hope you like the update :)

asdkjfdh i just made a post about this but,

HI I’m Phii, an RCAD student and my intuos pro tablet is on it’s final legs! i can barely get it to work without wiggling the tablet cord closest to the port a whole bunch and putting it in weird positions and it stops working mid drawing and it’s just about fizzled out. I recently bought a new cord and i’ve tested it and it’s definitely the pad itself I’ve had this tablet for a good 4 or 5 years if i remember correctly? maybe more? but i literally don’t have any money to buy a new one (bc i use all the cash i get for food or supplies for my non digital media classes.) SO WHAT I WANNA DO IS BE -THE WORST- and ask for donations !

I’m hoping for at least $300 but going to try and shoot for $800

$300 means I can get the same tablet from amazon and hopefully live until my birthday or other to try and get a cintiq 13HD (I asked for one for christmas this passed year but my parents decided not to do christmas or presents this time around so,,, yeah;;)

OR $800 so I can get a cintiq 13HD now and hopefully never worry again ??? for several years at least

my paypal is lessthenlove@yahoo.com so if you are capable of donating even a little bit, it’ll help me out tremendously! I’m going to try and get my tablet to work for as long as i can and maybe make some $25 adoptables/designs to sell and maybe offer some $10 sketch commissions or some YCH auctions that I’ll finish when i can get a more reliable tablet ghgh;; 

sorry this is such a wordwall but im desperate, half of my classes depend on my having a portable tablet and my personal work is done 95% on my tablet as well, and hopefully i can use a friend’s tablet in the mean time but i really need my own asdfg please n thank you;; 

I’ll be trying to open up a patreon as well sometime in the future so i don’t have to ever do this again and people will have more access to my work if they enjoy it so !! look forward to that if i can avert this crisis; 

THANK YOU !!!! aaa

Thoughts

I am so sorry for making a big fuss, friends. I’ve been thinking a lot about this and decided not to leave here. I know I’m no one and my whereabouts are hardly important, but I think I should make myself clear. Here are my thoughts;

a) I can ship anything. I’ve shipped Doctor Strange/Ross ever since Civil War came out. I love and respect BP too as a movie itself, I don’t want the movie just for some shipping. And I know other many shippers are the same.

b) Well, I had actually started deleting posts on my blog. I just couldn’t delete my account right away before download all the gifs ‘cause I don’t have my old gifs myself. Shame. But then I found that even after I had deleted my gifs, they would be reblogged forever without their home. And Tumblr even didn’t let me change the blog private. Guh.

c) I kept wondering; if I left here, would I also leave Sherlock or Benedict or Martin fandom or shipping Johnlock, EverStrange(or Stross?) or other things forever? I didn’t think so. I’ll end up coming back here again. With a new blog. Then where’s the meaning of deleting the old one.

d) There are so many good people here. I’ve got lots of sincere and heart warming messages. They gave me precious advice and provided new views that I should consider. I don’t want to bomb my dash with them, so please understand if I don’t reply. I’m so lucky and happy to have people like you, friends. I don’t know where else I can find friends like you. Thank you for your support. I love you all.

So, after making a scene and fully embarrassing myself in front of everybody, I’m still here. I apologize again for this. If someone don’t like having me here, please feel free to ignore / unfollow / block me.
Thank you.

anonymous asked:

Hi! Next year I'm going to live in France for Erasmus and it will be my first experience living alone (without my parents) and abroad. Could you give me some tips about it, please??

Omg this is so exciting!! Tbh I live in a residence hall so I can’t give you any advice on appartment and food related stuff

  • Keep track of your expenses – you’d be surprised how fast money goes. You now have to buy simple stuff like toilet paper that your parents provided, and trust me, it adds up.
  • Also it’s super easy to get carried away when you’re buying food and get a ton on crap but again, it adds up (specially junk food is super expensive?? like??). So I suggest you make a list of stuff you need before going to the store and stick to it.
    • Preferably buy frozen stuff because it lasts longer.
    • And know how long stuff lasts. For instance, eggs are usually only good for like 2 weeks, so don’t buy more than you know you can eat in that time.
    • It’s better to go to the store several times than to overbuy.
  • If you can learn to do laundry beforehand, that’s always good. Please separate your white and color clothes, I’ve seen so many catastrophes bc ‘oh it doesn’t matter! My clothes will be fine!’
  • You can iron your clothes but tbh no one actually does that.  Takes to much time. As long as you store stuff that tends to get wrinkly on hangers, it’ll sort itself out. The only exception may be skirts.
  • There’ll be no one to tell you to get your ass to class and it’s so common to just stop caring. I have a post about that here.
  • If possible, get a roommate/flatmate.
    • It gets super lonely wihtout one, specially if it’s your first year living on your own.
    • You’re going abroad so it’ll help to have omeone you can count on to go out with.
    • Appartment expenses are so much cheaper when you split them up.
    • It helps with going to class too. You kind of feel judged if you don’t
    • And it sort of stops you from just lying around all day without doing anything.
  • Keeping your space clean is so important. Here are some tips. If you get a roommate, agree on a cleaning plan.
  • General posts on how to adult 1 & 2
  • KEEP YOUR KEYS AND ID WITH YOU AT ALL TIMES.
  • Take care of your health insurance bc no one’s going to do it for you. This is really fucking important bc you don’t realize that if for instance you have a fever, you’re gonna need a doctor’s note and you’re not going to get it if you don’t have a doctor to go too (but if it happens, go to the emergency room. They’ll probably give you a long speech about how you should go to your doctor for this stuff but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).
  • Don’t hole up in your room!! Especially if you’re going abroad, go see stuff!!
  • On the same note, it’s not weird to go out by yourself. If you wanna go somewhere, go. You don’t need a roommate or a friend every single time.
  • Get your bank account stuff arranged omg. Also, I’d definitely suggest getting a debit card because that way your parents can send you money. But also!! Avoid using the card itself as much as possible. It’s better to go to an ATM and get cash because otherwise you don’t realize how much money you’re spending and it’s super easy to go crazy.
  • Get a hamper, a water boiler and mugs, all the mugs. You will use them for everything – water, tea, coffee, mug cakes, mashing stuff…  
  • And lastly, don’t hesitate to call your parents for advice. You may live alone but you’re not on your own. I can’t tell you the number of times a week I call my mom for advice on Adult Stuff.

Hope that helped! And have fun next year!!

The chocobros s/o, after the return of the dawn (Noctis is alive) became an ambassador for Lucis. Now, nine months pregnant they stubbornly want to lead the negotiation for an alliance with Tenebrae directly there. Which it happen. The boys, remained in Insomnia, recive an embarassed phone call by Talcott: " uhm, the negotiation has gone well. And, ehm, congrats, they got on labour and give birth in the main hall" reactions?

I had trouble typing this one despite loving the request entirely- this is simply because I am exhausted and I kind of want to just go to bed! But I also wanted to post something for you all before I hit the hay. If I can manage another short headcanon/short scenario request, I’ll probably do it after this :) Ignis’ is long because… it just didn’t want to stop writing itself LOL

Noctis: “Noct, it’s Talcott on the line. He wants to speak with you.” Ignis’ voice startled Noctis out of his reverie. Shaking his head, Noctis gazed up at his advisor and nodded, before realising that Ignis probably couldn’t see his actions. So Noctis grunted in acknowledgment.

“Thanks Specs,” Noctis picked up the receiver and held it to his ear with a sigh, “how’s it going Talcott? Good news?” Noctis asked, sounding tired. Talcott laughed nervously over the phone, and that was when Noctis knew something had happened. The young King sat up straighter in his seat, his eyes wide with worry. “Talcott…?”

“Your Majesty, the negotiations went fine- we’ve won the Tenebrae Alliance. And… well, congratulations. Lucis now has a baby princess to its Crown.” Talcott said, a little hesitantly. Noctis gaped, not even aware that his mouth was wide open.

“What? Y/n gave birth?! When?” Noctis exclaimed. His face fell at a sudden as a sudden thought intruded into his mind. “Talcott… where?”

Noctis could hear Talcott gulp over the phone. “Um, the main hall-”

“THE MAIN HALL?! Y/N GAVE BIRTH IN FRONT OF THE WHOLE OF TENEBRAE’S COURT?! SHE’S OUR QUEEN. SHE’S MY WIFE!” Noctis practically roared out of incredulity. Talcott laughed nervously through the line.

“Uh, yeah… it kinda just happened- congratulations?” the young man offered hesitantly. Noctis sighed and slumped down in his seat with a small smile on his face despite his horror.

“Thanks Talcott.”


Prompto: Prompto frowned at the flurry of incoming calls that were coming through while he was on a mechanical excavation job down in the Keycatrich Ruins. Cindy had tipped him off about some goodies that could be useful for the rebuilding of Insomnia, so Prompto and his hunter team headed out on the job around the same time you were due out to go meet with the leaders of Tenebrae about the Lucis-Tenebrae Alliance Noctis was pushing for.

Prompto didn’t want to let you go, but he also didn’t want to make you think that he thought you were weak in your state of very late pregnancy. You were an independent woman and you liked to do things on your own terms- baby or no baby. So Prompto merely kissed you goodbye, told you to be careful, and then let you go off on your merry way.

“Talcott?” Prompto said, calling the familiar number back. “What’s up? How did the alliance shindig go?” the blond mechanist asked, wiping his dirty hands on his already messed up pants.

“Um, yeah- it all went well sir!” Prompto frowned at the formal address.

“Just Prompto’s fine man… so what are you calling about? Is y/n okay?” Prompto suddenly asked, worry clear in his tone. Talcott laughed nervously at Prompto’s question and the blond man could feel his heart absolutely drop.

“She kind of gave birth in front of the Tenebrae officials. Congratulations though- you’re a happy father to a healthy baby boy!” Talcott exclaimed.

Prompto remained standing for a few more moments, in radio silence. Talcott tried to call his name out, but by then, Prompto was already long gone. He’d fainted.

Poor guy- he wasn’t even there when you were giving birth. Imagine if he was- you’d have to welcome chaos all around!

Im,so sorry for the second ask but I'm screaming over your cellphone case how did you make it???? I'm yelling

Are you asking about the sasusaku phone case? I got a couple asks about the phone as well so I can make a public post about it! >< But basically I just ordered one of those clear glitter phone cases off of ebay and then I printed a personalized sticker to fit behind the phonecase and ontop of the back of the phone! 

I think some people thought I made the glitter case itself and haha;;; no I did not. I wish I could, but it’s not that easy :’( 

But here is a link to a similar phone case that I got if anyone’s interested in it:

And the sticker on the phone is a small doodle I made for my blog :-) 

Glitch In The Matrix Stories #3

Too Much Tea

This takes place on a weekday night about two years ago. My friend and I are juniors in college, hanging out in the common room of my dorm (no drugs, no alcohol, not tired). After we decide we’ve done enough homework for one lifetime, we go to the CVS down the street, more out of boredom rather than hunger. We get there and notice there’s a 2/$1 sale on Arizona Iced Tea. 

Since Arizona Iced Tea is the nectar of the gods and since it’s such a bargain, we buy two. I get the raspberry flavor because why would you get something else. My friend is being “adventurous” and gets the grapeade one (even though everyone knows anything grape flavored tastes like Children’s Motrin). I’m a supportive friend so whatever. We buy our Arizona Iced Teas and walk out.

Once outside, my friend is so eager to try his new grapeade that he opens it and in the process, breaks off the little metal tab on his can. I laugh. He puts it in his pocket. I ask him how the grapeade tastes. He says it’s fine. I know it’s horrible. I open my raspberry iced tea and stick to the true gospel.

We make it back to my common room, and watch some TV (…on Youtube, on my laptop). We’re watching some quality entertainment aka Maury, sipping on our Arizona Iced Tea. It’s like an average Tuesday night. And then at one point, I go to sip my raspberry iced tea, and I just stare at it for a while. My friend looks over (you know something is wrong if someone can pull away their eyes from a Maury episode) and says, “What’s wrong?”

I’m just staring at my iced tea can, trying to figure out why I’m staring at it. I say, “I don’t know. Something’s just different.” And then the big gaping hole in my can hits me. “Oh I just don’t remember breaking the tab off my can.”

We look at my can and the metal tab is gone. Huh. Ok. And my friend is like “Oh yeah I did that to mine too, remember?” He picks up his grapeade and the metal tab to his can… is there. HUH. OK.

We both remember him ripping off the metal tab on the grapeade outside the CVS. He even reaches in his pocket and pulls out the metal tab that allegedly had broken off his can. But now his can is cured and mine is the one with the missing tab. We are both stunned.

The metal tab fits onto my can as well as any broken metal tab can, but we are both certain that we never switched drinks (like I would be caught dead holding grapeade), I didn’t break my tab off at any point, and I was staring at my can for so long because something had clearly changed in the last 10 seconds.

We have no explanation for this. We laughed it off at the time so we understand when other people laugh at us. But this really minor, seemingly trivial event really freaked us out. This will henceforth be known as The Great Arizona Iced Tea Switch Glitch of Late 2013.

Horoscope On Radio Told My Mom She Was Pregnant With Me

My mom told me this story. When she was 32 she was tired and nauseous for a week or so and thought she pregnant as my parents were trying for a baby.

She took a test, negative. Went to the doctor, blood tests again not only showed she wasn’t pregnant, but going through early menopause. She was devastated.

Shortly after her visit with the doctor, she was at home cleaning the house. She was listening to the radio (this is way back in 1981), and it said, “Capricorn, don’t worry, you’re pregnant”.

She thought to herself, “well that’s ridiculous, why would they say that to every Capricorn listening?”

Not long after, another trip to the doctor confirmed she was indeed pregnant.

I’ve Either Been Drugged, I’m Losing My Sanity, Or I’m Literally Teleporting - My Most Profound “Glitch” Yet

So, I’m a security guard working 12 hour shifts midnight to noon on a large 3-building campus. I’ve had one or two weird things happen before, but never anything like this.

At 2:31 am I was walking back from a patrol in another building when all of the sudden I got this pang of electricity. It felt like I got electrocuted; I stopped in my tracks, the wind was knocked out of me, and everything was buzzing. It was like a jolt of energy was sent up my spine, and it felt like getting tased in the back while standing in front of a massive sub woofer.

I didn’t know what to think about this. I assumed it was like when you turn your head the wrong way and you get that twinge in your neck, but it was like that for the whole body. I moved on feeling bewildered.

Later, at 4:27am, I was outside walking the perimeter of two of the three office buildings on campus. I had 3 minutes left on my podcast and decided to take another loop to let it finish before I got back to my post.

23 seconds later I all of the sudden became aware that I was somewhere I shouldn’t be if I had only been walking 23 seconds; I had almost completed the loop - something I know for a fact takes about 3 minutes at average walking speed. I’ve been doing it every night for more than 6 months.

I know it was exactly 23 seconds because I instantly paused the podcast, and I remember at what point in the podcast I had made the decision to take another loop, and I paused it the moment I realized something was wrong.

At this point I’m completely bewildered and confused and convinced I’m going crazy. I know I wasn’t walking backwards, I didn’t change directions, and there are no shortcuts I could have taken. I even went back and timed how long it takes to do the loop at a normal walking pace (~3min 20 sec), and powerwalking/light jog (~1 min 45 sec).

At 4:45 am I drew the last straw. I scanned my ID badge to enter the building and go back to my post, and stopped to go to the bathroom on the way. When I came out of the bathroom, I SHIT YOU NOT I WAS IN A DIFFERENT BUILDING.

My mind was literally blown. I was frozen with existential dread. I could not/can not logically accept what my senses were/are telling me. Bewildered, I walked out of the building and into the correct one I was in when I walked into the bathroom.

I was telling myself that I just wasn’t paying attention and walked into the wrong bathroom. Then I realized that the bathrooms are completely different, and wanted to confirm.

I walked back to the other building, when my mind proceeded to blow itself AGAIN. MY ID BADGE DOES NOT OPEN THE DOORS TO THIS BUILDING. There is a separate badge that is kept in a drawer at my post that the guards share to patrol this particular building. There is no way I could have accidentally walked into this building; it would have rejected my ID and the doors would have remained locked.

After I go back and grab the right badge, I confirm that the two bathrooms are a completely different layout, and opposite color. I’ve never used the bathroom in the “glitchy” building before; it’s brown and yellow with wooden counters, whereas the one I use about 8 times per shift (16 times per week, 64 times a month, ~384 times total) is two different shades of blue with marble counters. They look completely different and I’m fairly certain I remember the bathroom I used being blue with marble.

So, yeah. This event is by far the most profound “paranormal-ish” event I have experienced in my life as of yet. I can’t think of a logical scenario that explains all three experiences I had, other than I’m going insane.

Reoccurring Dream Character Showing Up In Family And Friend’s Dreams As Well

So this all started last summer I believe, when I had an abnormally vivid dream. In it, I was attending a large conference I’d been too many times IRL with a bunch of my friends and their families. I was standing in a long line for either a book signing or food (to this day I can’t remember which) and stood behind one of my friend’s dad. 

Then, as I was standing there at the end of the line, this guy comes up and stands behind me. I remember the details of what he looked like in my mind so clearly I could probably describe him to a police sketch artist and get a completely accurate image. The short version I’d give is that he was like a really good looking suburban dad. He was pretty tall, just slightly taller than I am, with blonde, combed back hair and really clear and hard blue eyes. His facial features were very sharp and angular, and he had thinner than average lips and a sharp nose. He was wearing a red, button down plaid shirt, which was one of the first things that caught my eye. 

The most distinctive thing about him though was his presence. Calling the feeling that I got when he walked up “uneasy” would be vastly understating the deeply unsettling nature of his presence. I don’t remember much of what happened in the dream after that, because I left the line in a hurry and woke up not long after.

Over the next three or four days, I had two more dreams with this character in them. In one, I was browsing my phone and I happened to look up at my window and see him standing outside, and in the other, I saw him on the news, the reporter saying he was working with some sinister entity or organization. This alone would have been enough to weird me out, but the weirdness doesn’t end there.

One day, my good buddy and I were talking about dreams, and I happened to mention that I had a really vivid dream about this conference, which he had also attended. He responded that he had also recently had a dream about the conference. He then began to recite back to me the exact dream I had dreamED two and a half weeks before. 

About halfway through, I started confirming details with him, like the line, the dad standing in front, and the weird guy in the plaid shirt. My friend starts getting more worked up as we go back and forth confirming details of the dream and this guy’s appearance, which he also vividly remembered. He tells me that before he had this particular dream that we’d apparently both had, he had seen the guy before in another dream, and also felt really uneasy about him. 

His previous dream had involved him helping a girl escape from a trafficking ring, and at one point in the dream, the man in the plaid shirt had showed up and appeared to be the head of the ring or at least involved with it. We were both pretty freaked out by this, but the weirdest part was yet to come.

About two months later, I was talking with my mom. She was telling me about this bizarre dreams he had the previous night, in which she was fleeing from a tornado that was making it’s way towards our house. She told me how in the dream, she had gone downstairs and hid in the closet, only for the wall to be ripped off by the tornado, providing a view of the driveway. She described how when the tornado got to the edge of the driveway, it suddenly began to spin out and dissipate, twisting and transforming into a large mangled metal girder that fell to the ground. 

Then, she said, the next thing that happened was really vivid and unsettling. She said that the metal stood up and turned into a man with a plaid shirt. I got chills when she told me this, and I started quizzing her on details. Everything was exactly the same as I had remembered. Sharp features, cold eyes, blonde hair, red plaid shirt.

I have never seen anyone matching this description before in real life. I never told my mom or friend or anyone else about this guy before they told me about their dreams, and they were both legitimately shocked to hear that I had seen the same character, whom I have taken to calling Plaidshirt Guy.

anonymous asked:

Hi Human, I noticed bot gets lots of notes when they do things right, do they understand that? Like when a bunch of people are like "good job!" is bot like "hey I did that one right! Lets keep doing that!"? Im sorry if this doesn't make sense I don't know that much about robots!

Hi, human operator here:

No, picdescbot doesn’t read the notes and can’t understand them.

The way picdescbot works is that it fetches a random image from Wikimedia Commons, passes it through a series of blacklists to filter out offensive images (see the last question I answered for details), then sends it to Microsoft Cognitive Services to get a description, passes the description through another blacklist, neutralizes gender, and posts it to twitter & tumblr.

Since the Microsoft service is a “black box” for me and picdescbot (which is not affiliated with Microsoft in any way), there’s no way for picdescbot to influence the service and improve it. While the service does improve over time, it has nothing to do with picdescbot itself or the feedback people leave for it here.

You can imagine it as a magical box that you put a picture in, and a description comes out from the other side, with no one knowing what goes on inside. The bot itself is just a “messenger”, whose job is to feed the box pictures and then post the results for the world to see.

I hope this answer won’t disappoint too many people, since I really like the way people personify the bot.

Shingeki no Kyojin chapter 90 review (+ theories)

This is it. 

We’re finally concluding the arc beginning with Grisha’s flashback at chapter 71 and ending with the basement’s discovery and the amount of deal-breaking contents, leading us to the last phase of the manga, with this month’s chapter as being the ultimate wrap-up.

Lasting 5 volumes, it would be wise to write an arc review in a separate post, since it covered the unfinished business left from the first volumes: taking back that portion of the territory surrounded by titans, the mystery between Grisha Yeager and the contents of the basement and eventually the truth behind this world. Too bad I wasn’t around when the first chapters have been published because it would’ve been fun to pick every theory around and check which ones were actually closer to the facts; remember people trying to guess the Beast Titan’s identity? Eren using the coordinate to invoke the wall titans during the battle?

But anyway, the point of this post is more about commenting the chapter in an itself and guess what happens next, as always. 

I’ll start by a general commentary: I had… mitigated views about this chapter overall. Not because it felt like a huge letdown for my birthday (because let’s face it, nothing can top Edgetolt) but because it just shows it’s a rather quick wrap-up when we’re preparing the final phase.

I’ll use the MangaStream translation while waiting for the CR scans. It’s not top-quality but the translations are usually on-point (and they seldom mess up bubble order or in this month’s case… PAGE ORDER).

This chapter can be decomposed into 4 phases:

  1. The truth about the titans
  2. Flocke
  3. The ceremony
  4. The timeskip
  5. The ocean and Eren’s resolve

I’ll detail my review under the cut:

I Needed This

This is something I posted a month or two ago, but it was then pointed out that almost all of the links were broken…and at the same time, tumblr enacted their new restrictive linking policy. Meaning almost no one it was directed at actually saw it. I haven’t had the chance to correct the problem until now, and in that short time, the post referred to has climbed to over 14,000 notes. Like…what? Holy crap. Okay.

I wish I could sit down and reply to everyone who responded to the post, but at this point that’s just impossible. Just know, I do see the notes, and I’m grateful for every single one.

Below is the fixed post, as it was supposed to appear in April. If you’ve already read it, feel free to disregard this and scroll on by.

So…I’m gonna do one of my weird things. This isn’t really to do with FFVIII, but…I feel like I owe people this. Because I’ve been watching this silly little writing power build and build and snowball, and…it just seems…so counter to the situation of the people I seem to be reaching, that I can’t just let it sit there and rack up “points” in the form of notes without taking a moment (well, a few hours at this point, but I had the time, and this is what I decided to do with it) to at least acknowledge the response. I’ve received messages from people, a flood of kind comments and tags, I’ve watched people reach out to one another to support them in their writing endeavors. Most of it has been outside this fandom, so…I apologize ahead of time if this is somewhat off-topic.
