so, in honour of having survived the first week of classes, i’ve decided to make a list of some of the best quotes from my classes (nearly half of which were said by professors)

  • “cain killed abel in an unfortunate disagreement about sacrifices”
  • “there, i made it about god, can I talk about pagans now?”
  • “what’s the deal with all the one-eyed people?” “keep an eye on them”
  • “the romans saw the picts as naked losers”
  • “loki was everyone’s annoying younger brother until the christians showed up” “yeah, the whole baldr thing was only barely his fault”
  • “i can’t pronounce his name, so i’m just gonna call him the guy until someone else says it so i can copy how they say it”
  • “he’s dying, but, like, in a sexy way”
  • “this gave us many of the monsters from legend, including Angelina Jolie”
  • “seven was a magic number, so him having seven fingers on each hand makes him the epitome of sexiness for them”
  • “so the five year old hulks out and kills a bunch of people”
  • “if you relax your eyes, what can you see?” “an octopus”
  • “wow, the celts made boar sculptures, i’m so surprised”
  • “since she’s basing all her arguments off a manuscript that no longer exists, we’re just gonna call this speculation”
  • “the picts also walked off with buckets and buckets of roman coins that they had no use for, cause they didn’t have a monetary system”
  • “it’s cubism in the 3rd century”
  • “animal salad is my new favourite phrase”
  • “what animal do you think it’s meant to be?” “well, it’s squiggly, so i’m gonna say it’s a serpent” “it’s a horse”

i love experiencing how my classmates work to avoid misgendering me. for instance, today one classmate greeted the rest of our small group:
“All right ladies and gentlemen — and Avery”

another time a classmate went:
“Pardon me, ma’am — uh, sir, uh….esteemed one”

and, my absolute fave:
“Hey ladies! — and gentleThem”

i love these moments both because they’re humorous and because they show how hard these folks are trying! it’s not about getting it right every time at first, but consistently correcting yourself!

anonymous asked:

Could a Mage of Void have Omninescience, the power to know nothing and ignore everything to the point where your ignoring natural laws

They’d know secrets, obscure information, and the unknowable, but ‘knowing nothing so hard you go back around and know everything’ is kind of a weird concept. I’d peg what you’re trying to convey more to a Mage of Rage, though- Someone who sees through the fabricated lies of the System they are in and knows what is really behind everything.
