I’m still feeling zero sympathy for the growing number of ManChildTrump voters who are realizing they were fooled.
Those who wanted ObamaCare killed while they had coverage under the Affordable Care Act. No sympathy.
Caitlyn Jenner, who knew the people with whom Trump aligns himself want to dissolve same-sex marriage and eliminate protections for transgender people. No sympathy.
Immigrants who came here, then voted to keep refugees out…even those from the same country they escaped…then cry because their family members can’t enter the US. No sympathy.
People who claim to care about their children’s education…or the air they breathe…or the water they drink, only to see the unqualified people Trump appointed to his cabinet. No sympathy.
And, Middle Class taxpayers? Here’s a prediction. When Trump releases his tax plan, you’ll discover you’re paying higher taxes so the rich/corporations can stack up a few more pennies on their counting tables. No sympathy!
Lady Hay Drummond-Hay (September 12, 1895—February 12, 1946) was a star journalist who became the first woman to circumnavigate the globe, and she did it in a damned Zeppelin. She went on to report from war zones like Abyssinia (now Ethiopia) and Manchuria (now part of China), fell into a tumultuous romance with a fellow reporter, and was eventually captured by the Japanese during WWII.
…swim the English Channel.
Gertrude Ederle (October 23, 1905 – November 30, 2003) was a competitive swimmer, Olympic champion, and at one time held five world records. If there was a world record for coolest nickname she would’ve held six, because hers was “Queen of the Waves.” When Ederle set out to become the first woman to swim the English channel, she used motorcycle goggles and sealed the edges with wax to keep the salt water out of her eyes. Due to unfavorable and violent wind conditions twelve hours into her 14 hour and 34 minute journey, her trainer shouted at her to get out of the water and into his boat. She reportedly popped her head up from the water to simply ask “what for?”
…travel around the world in less than 80 days.
Nellie Bly (May 5, 1864—January 27, 1922) asked her editor at the New York World if she could take a stab at turning the story Around the World in 80 Days from fiction to fact. Using railways and steamships, Bly chuggah-chuggahed and toot-tooted the nearly 25,000 mile trip in just 72 days, meeting Jules Verne and buying a monkey along the way. If her name sounds familiar but these stories don’t, it’s probably because you’ve heard about how she once faked a mental illness so she could write an exposé on psychiatric asylums. Or maybe it’s because of her famed coverage of the Woman Suffrage Parade of 1913. Or maybe it’s because you’re a big fan of farming and industrialist patents and heard she invented a novel milk can and a stacking garbage can. Nellie Bly did a lot in her short 57 years.

So I’ve seen a couple people talking about hating to see certain pairings and characters when searching on AO3, and I thought I’d take a moment to teach everyone A Thing I Love To Do. You can absolutely and very very easily filter out pairings and characters when you search for fics!
Step one: Find the tag for the character/pairing you want to filter out.
You’re gonna have to click on it (I’M SORRY I KNOW BUT ONLY FOR A SECOND).
Step two: After clicking on that tag you hate, find the RSS Feed button up on top and click that.
This is gonna bring up a screen full of gibberish. But it’s okay! This is good gibberish.
Step three: In the address bar, find the numbers that appear after tags/
That’s the numerical code that AO3 has attached to that tag.
Step four: Copy that number, then paste it in the search bar with a - in front of it
Step five: Success! Pressing search will remove that tag from the search results.
For best results, save all the tags you hate in a document and copy/paste when needed. You can totally stack these filters as much as you want, just make sure there’s a - in front of each tag code.
But Lady, you ask, how does this work? Well, the AO3 search engine, like every single search engine you will ever use, uses something called boolean searching. Putting that - in front of what you don’t want will tell the search engine “show me everything that fits this criteria, EXCEPT NOT this other criteria”.
The problem with AO3 is, if you search “-Character1/Character2″, it will fail to filter out stories tagged with “Character2/Character1″, or any stories where the tag uses a character’s nickname. But thanks to something that AO3 calls tag wrangling, both of those options will be stored within the same numerical code, so that a search for one will also bring up the other. You can use that in your filtering to ensure that all iterations of that pairing you hate will be removed.
WARNING: this currently only applies to character and pairing tags, and only the tags that have gotten enough fics to have been “wrangled” by AO3 and given a tag code. It also won’t work on stories where the tag has been misspelled.
So maybe you’re a college witch with limited space and money, limited to the one window in your dorm. Or, maybe you’re a witch without extensive backyard space who wants to start up a magical garden. Perhaps you’re a kitchen witch who wants the freshest herbs right at her fingertips.
For many witches, having a garden seems to be a bit of a no-brainer. After all, plants and magic go hand-in-hand. Plus, when thinking of a witch, it’s hard not to think of a cottage in the woods with a little vegetable garden out front. Unfortunately for the majority of us, our cottage in the woods is a tiny flat, and our garden out front is a windowsill with limited space.
This is when it comes time to embrace your craftiness and bring your garden indoors! Not only does it place your garden in a convenient location, it also allows you to freshen the air, recycle what would otherwise harm the earth, and embrace your witchy green thumb!
Samwise Gamgee’s Dream Come True!
Okay, so if you follow my blog, chances are that you’re wondering if this whole potato theme for today is because of St. Patrick’s. I promise, I’m not enforcing Irish stereotypes on purpose. I just really like potatoes, and when it comes to gardening, it’s a bit of a disservice to overlook this vegetable. After all, when we think about kitchen gardens or home gardens, we think of herbs or flowers, and not about the veggies we eat that live a rather subterranean existence. But potatoes - those lovely little brown lumps that we can get for a couple dollars per five pound bag in the supermarket - are not only inexpensive. They’re extremely hardy little plants that can be grown rather easily.
You don’t need much to get started with this project. First, you need “seed potatoes.” This is not hard to find. Simply take a few potatoes and allow them to grow a bit. They will sprout a few short little stalks from the eyes on the surface. Save these, and get potting mix and two medium to large plastic pots that can easily stack one inside the other.
Carefully cut a few panes out of the inner pot as in the picture above, then place the inner pot into the outer one. Fill the pot part way with soil, add your seed potatoes, and cover them with potting mix. Water as needed until the potato plants peek up out of the soil. Cover them again and repeat this process gradually until the pot is full.
In roughly three months, you’ll have potato plants that are ready to begin harvesting. Simply lift the inner pot up and pluck your potatoes as needed from the sides! Fresh potatoes, free!
Ideally, this method of potato cultivation can help feed a family of four for about a year. My family had used this method, and our family of five was able to stay fed for a year off of two of these planters (we like potatoes… and we eat them a lot…)
How Can I Witch This?
Potatoes are very useful in witchcraft, and you can find out some of their magickal uses in my Foodie Friday article about Seafood Gnocchi. As for growing them, many of those properties remain the same!
As with any gardening venture, add crystals to the soil to promote healthy and fruitful plants, draw sigils and symbols on the pottery or planters, and incorporate protection or fertility ingredients into the soil - such as eggshell or coffee grounds.
Outside of the useful culinary benefits of having a potato planter on your front porch, a garden such as this is useful for outdoor space cleansing in small spaces, and for inviting prosperity into your home or property since potatoes represent such comforts as full bellies and pockets.
Since a small number of potatoes can be used to produce a much larger quantity in this planting method, you could even turn them into a prosperity or slow growth money spell! Pour your intent into the seed potatoes when you plant them, and as they produce new crops, give them water and food as an offering in order to keep the spell fed! Some of the potatoes produced in this way can also be converted into offerings or used in spellwork, in addition to being used to cook with!
The possibilities are practically endless where potatoes are concerned! See what you can do with these nifty little spuds!
bruh maybe he just wanted to relax. maybe he went to an alien spa. dont judge him let the man relax
maybe he just found out he had the ability to turn invisible and wanted to freak the fuck out of his Friends
his body merged with zarkon and he finds out he can control zarkons body. cue a very disturbing realization that zarkon is like 2 feet tall and constantly hiding in a giant mech, and sneaks abord the castle. everyone freaks out.
hes a ghost that only the mice can see, but the mice dont know that shiros dead and just treat him like normal. they constantly mention all the shit shiros doing to get attention to allura but allura just thinks theyre being mean/silly. cue angst
no one knows where he went but the black lion can pilot itself now and when they form voltron the other paladins swear that they can see shiro in the cockpit, smiling sadly.
the future, freaking out several aged-up paladins by falling and breaking the dinner table. pidge has muscles
yo danny fenton he was just 14,,,,, oh sorry yo takashi shirogane was just 25 when he hecking died
hes lost in the depths of space and gets picked up by space pirates, loosing his memory again. several weeks later voltron finds him using tracking with the armor hes wearing and discover the blast had rendered him deaf. the team works around it and makes an impromptu sign language
shiro is found 15 minutes into episode 1, hanging out with the cow lance bought in the air vents.
there are several different shiros from different universes running around the castle now. none of them are from this universe. none of them are able to connect with the black lion, but they can stack on each others shoulders and form the Shiro Lion
Wig Hack Wednesday #6 !
Want to make your ponytail wig more believable with top volume? Ponytail clips are cool but they can be uncomfortable after long hours of wearing. You can make seamless high ponytail with this method for characters like Kasumi (Dead or Alive), Widowmaker (Overwatch), or Medea (Fate/Grand Order)
For this demo, I used a Sandy Brown Jeannie base wig from Arda Wigs. The Jeannie comes with a tied up ponytail wig with a ponytail clip. You can use normal non-ponytail wig as a start as well. Make sure to alter the wig so you can tie it up for the stubbed part and use extra wefts for the high ponytail part.
- Undo the tail of the Jeannie base wig and re-tie it higher. Use elastic band for this instead of rubber band so that it won’t melt against hot glue later. Cut off the extra length of the tail as closely as you can to the tied area. Stub with hot glue.
- Cut a piece of cardboard for the tail’s “extension”.
- Hot glue the cardboard piece to the top of the tail, going around it. I used a half-piece, but if you need extra support, cut a bigger piece so that you can completely wrap it around the tail.
- Add paper to the top of the cardboard using packaging tape. You can stack it higher if you wish but keep the weight in mind.
- Take the butterfly clip out of the ponytail clip that comes with the Jeannie. Cut the piece in half.
- Use the bottom piece from the last step to glue onto the top of the tail. Start gluing near the tied area first.
- Section off the hair so it’s easier to neatly glue it down to the paper form. Start from the top area, and then the two sides.
- Remember the other half piece from the ponytail clip earlier? Cut it in half again and use one of the halves to glue to the underside of your big ponytail to close the gap.
- Brush the hair and hairspray it in place and you have a strong high ponytail! Since it’s heavy-back, you may need to sew in some wig clips or zig zag flexi comb inside the wig cap by the hairline to make sure the wig doesn’t slide backward when you walk around.
There’s a breed of rabbit called Flemish Giant and they’re HUGE. Thought it would be fun to try it in the Zootopia style, especially since you only see tiny types in the film. They would be as big or bigger than Nick most likely.
Used some gesture studies as pose reference (the model was using suspended handles), and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
Part 3 of the American Diner, a collaboration project by @daer0n and me. All the stuff that we used in the previews is part of this set, so if there’s anything you want, but is not included in this part, check out part 1 & part 2.
Some of the items have slots so you can put things inside / stack them up. A few bar counter islands are “empty” so you need the glass blocks and place them inside.
Included items in this set are: Checkered Island counters (4), Glass for the island counters (2), Tray (stackable, slotted), Coffeemaker (non-functional, slotted), Coffeepot, Counters (5), Coffee can, Island Ceiling blocks (2, rounded and squared) (deco), Round barstool, Spoon, Coffeecups (3), Glasses (8), Menu cards (2), Straw Holder, Neon sign coffee, Cake slice, Soda dispenser (non-functional, slotted), Wall shelves (5), Bottles (2), Black and white ceiling block, Fridge (non-functional, slotted) and plates (3, 1 of them is stackable).
Again, sorry for the lack of news, I don’t play with my Sims a lot lately. But I’m fine, newt week, I move in my new appartment, and you can’t imagine how exited I am. I have to buy almost all the furniture, it’s like building a starter house in the sims, with my budget :o
So ! I created these folded clothes long ago, but at first, I wanted to include them in a bigger set. But it’s a bit hard to find the motivation to create furniture when you already work on 3D stuff all the day. :p
Two items are included : a single folded clothes, and a stack of three.
You can stack them. If you want to create a column of clothes, you can do it !
Each item has 20 different colors options.
Polycount : 258 for the single one, 546 for the stack.
Price in game : 12§ for the single one, 36§ for the stack.
Hello! Hope you're having a wonderful day😋 can you do one where SHINee is at a formal family dinner?? (Whether it's with each other's family or just them together)
i hope you’re having an amazing day/night anon! omg this made me wonder if shinee and their families have ever sat down together to have a huge barbeque or something (bc korean families do that after big events so imagine after their debut they ALL just sat down together for dinner!!) but that’s a lot of moving parts so for now we shall see just shinee in a nice restaurant
why did he wear a white shirt and order something with red sauce
oh boy this is going to be a struggle
his water: *sweats* / onew: same
in a cruel twist of fate his entree is the smolest out of everyone’s
his life is hard but mccdonald’s delivers so
proposes a toast: “let’s go for a long long time shinee!!”
when they clink glasses he has the sunniest smile he’s so proud of them
staring at the menu for a really really long time (onew: you good?? / jong: i can’t read english)
honestly not sure what he ordered
there are too many forks/spoons/knives he just wants to eat (*looks at key and lifts a slightly larger fork* / key: *shakes his head* / *points at smaller fork* / key: *nods*)
cuts up all his food into small bite-sized pieces
lowkey making dinosaur grumbling noises (minho: *elbows him in the side* / jong: *indignant dinosaur sounds*)
maybe it’s being in a fancy place that makes him want to act out more
befriends the sommelier
orders everyone wine in french (shinee: wow~ kibum oppa so cool~)
has to take off all his rings in order to use silverware properly (they’re in a little pile next to his plate)
runs back in flustered later bc he forgot them
swirls wine in glass and smells it (jong: aigoo this pretentious act / key: omg you’re supposed to do this you UNCULTURED SWINE)
his back is ramrod straight
can probably stack books on his head rn
excited af for his lava cake
keeps showing how red his steak is to the other members
someone is kicking his shins and he’s trying to kick them back with a pleasant smile on his face
the lava cake came with basil ice cream and dude it’s weird
goes to the bathroom and doesn’t come back for a long time
doesn’t want to say but he couldn’t find their table in the dim lighting and that he was too embarrassed to ask a waiter/tress for help so he waited in the bathroom for a lil bit
his wine glass keeps refilling itself and he is getting pinker 6///6
lowkey drunk at the end of the night
very happily stealing minho’s dessert
“can we say it’s my birthday to get another cake”
he does it and claps the entire time the staff sings
You’ve just transitioned from middle school to high school!
There’s going to be a lot of terminology and schedule changes you’re not
familiar with. Here’s a quick breakdown of terms and other things you need to
1. AP Exams (Advanced Placement exams). These are
college-level tests that are administered after you complete an AP course.
Depending on the college, you may be able to use these credits to skip classes
2. “Double mod” or “Double period lunch”. Chances
are, you’re going to have a day in the week where your lunch is used as a lab
period. These are usually for bio, chem, envi-sci, physics, and sometimes comp
sci. Other classes may do this as well!
3. Digital Notes- You may be allowed to use your
laptop/tablet to take notes!
4. SAT/ACT- Standardized tests that you should start preparing for in
freshman year! More on that later.
5. SAT Subject Tests-More specific standardized
tests that will also be discussed later.
These are kind of the big ones that I didn’t know about when
I was a freshman. Honestly, I’m compiling a list of things I WISH I KNEW when I
was a freshman.
1. Grades matter!!! People will tell you that
grades don’t really matter in your first year, especially the first quarter.
DON’T LISTEN TO THEM, THAT IS A LIE. Don’t completely disregard your social
life and definitely don’t forget to take care of your mental health, but do put
some effort into your freshman year grades.
2. It’s okay to be thinking about college during
your first year. Actually, I highly recommend it. Try to narrow down your
potential college interest to a subject (science, math, arts) so you can slowly
stack up classes in that area!
3. Keep your notes! You don’t know when you’re
going to need them down the line!
4.Start making good relationships with your
teachers 😊 Chances are, during senior year when you
need hundreds of recommendations, your freshman teachers will have a nostalgic
and fun time writing you one!
5. Slowly start studying for the SAT and ACT exams!
These are very important if you want to get into college/university. ACT has a
science section (along with math and English/reading) while SAT does without
science. Buy a practice book for both the SAT and ACT and fiddle around with
both until you find which test you prefer. Then focus on that specific one and
6. Try to make your GPA great from the beginning 😊
If you’re aiming for competitive colleges, they want to see good grades
(coupled with challenging courses!)
7. Do LOTS of activities. Don’t let go of all the
hobbies/sports you enjoy doing! Not only will you be happy, you will have a
great application for colleges to see.
8. Start volunteering to not only make your application
beautiful, but also to become a better person!
9. Don’t be afraid to aim high. It’s okay to be the
different student and have goals while being a freshman. Don’t let other
people make you think otherwise.
10. Become great friends
with the other staff people (office ladies, secretaries, etc.) You will feel
so much more comfortable in a school surrounded by people who greet you in a
I hope this helps! I certainly wish I had something like this when I first started high school. I’ll be making sophomore, junior, and senior spinoffs, so get ready! I hope everyone is having a great April so far! Shoutout to my sister for making this header for me!!!
what would the band do if their s/o had v bad period cramps
me right now god kill me
He knows what periods are. A bloodbath in your uterus. A “last survivor” type of game.
Well, unfortunately, you don’t remain unscathed from the war. You’re cramps are terrible and give you headaches, and you feel nauseous as well. You get bloated and your boobs hurt, and… Augh.
Well, Mudz has never really had hands-on comforting skills when it comes to that time of the month… The closest he’s got to knowing about it would be that one hooker telling him that she’s tied for the next week (yikes).
Murdoc runs to every pharmacy in town, getting you every single medicine so you can stack them, different varieties of chocolate, and a heating pad (if you’re without).
If he goes out to buy you pads or tampons, he’s kind of antsy about it (why are you embarassed about it, Mudz? They’re not even for you). He casually would slip the cashier xamount of cash, and dash out of the store.
He would massage anything that hurt because he’s kinky like that.
His mom talked to him about it once…? Kind of? Nonetheless, when you tell him that it’s that time of month again, he calls up his mom to ask for help.
After the long talk plus frequent note-taking, Stu pacifies you at your side, making sure that you don’t feel like you’re about to puke, or faint, nonetheless.
Cuddles definitely make you feel better, he finally concludes. Stu would spoon you, arms wrapped around your waist, hands on your abdomen. If you were moaning in anguish, he would be there. If you were crying in pain, he would still be there.
Late night shopping trips? He’s on it.
Stu has an abundance of pain relievers hanging around in the bathroom cabinet for his frequent migraines, so you always have something like Midol or Ibuprofen hanging around tip: don’t ever use tylenol for this type of situation. it doesn’t work on menstrual cramps. midol has some of the same components as ibuprofen, so you’re better off not wasting time. i take midol.
When you guys go out, he always has an extra sweatshirt or jacket with him just in case you bleed through your clothes.
When he has to buy period products for you, he doesn’t really care like how Murdoc would. It’s not something to be embarrassed by, and if girls can do it, he can, too!
She knows what it feels like to have the fist of Mother Nature rip into your vagina. Trust me.
She has lots of herbal remedies to help you out, and she recommends lots of things to help ease the pain, like hot water bottles and a good ol’ pillow in between the legs.
Exercising helps with period pain as well, so Noodle will go out and take a walk with you if you’re feeling up to it.
You two probably get your period at around the same time, so you both comfort each other.
Fluffy blankets and chocolate? Heck yeah, man. Massages in sore areas? You’re darn right that’s gonna happen.
You and Noodle go to the drug store to get a bunch of different lady products to test out. You use statistics and bar graphs and everything to prove which product works the best, whether it be tampon or medicine related.
He’s pretty chill about periods. I mean, most guys seem freaked about them, but he’s never cared in his life. If he gets bled on by accident? Oh well, it’s just a pair of pants.
You need anything like pads or tampons in the middle of the night? Just give him 10 minutes to fully wake up. He’ll go out at 2am while you sit miserably on the toilet, bleeding out, as he picks out exactly what you need (plus a bouquet of flowers for good measure). It’s fun being female.
Russ would supply you with lots of water and hot compresses, as well as healthy snacks like tiny veggie trays and nice soups.
He holds your hand and lets you lay on him if you get to the point of absolute suffering.
He’ll make sure you get enough rest, as well. Sleeping helps ease the pain.
shoutout to everybody that bleeds from time to time
