common & sense man

Sometimes I look over my dashboard and genuinely feel like I have read DN in a parallel universe where none of the content happened the same way it did for other people and it’s vaguely unsettling actually

one of my favourite headcanons about Graves is that he was an ardent opposer of the Rappaport’s law but in very subtle ways. i mean, i am sure that a man of his ‘supposed’ views and of decent common sense would have seen how cruel this law is not only to the no-majs but to the wizards themselves

hence his care for Credence which must have existed pre-Grindelwald

i really want to explore the way Graves could have worked towards the repeal of this law. i know the repeal itself happened much later and perhaps Graves wasn’t even alive by that time, but i imagine he contributed to it in some small ways from his position

edit: fun, i went to read up on rappaport’s law and a certain name, Barebone, has been in the spotlight of the law’s origins. interesting! i guess it runs in the family

anonymous asked:

I'm in for a big argument on the official supergirl instagram with these male dumb fucks about man-hell. Can people have common sense for once?

you’re doing god’s WORK tbh. rage against slave owners and their apologists.

It’s not up to Kaiba Corporation to ensure that everybody who plays our games is mentally stable enough to handle fun. We send our condolences to the M. family, but suggest they try to find out why one of them turned out the way he was. A 35 year old grown man without a job and common sense. Yes, this is our official statement.

“He was a giant, a great, great soul, with all of the humanity, all of the wit and humor, all the wisdom, the spirituality, the common sense of a man and compassion for people. He inspired love and had the strength of a hundred men. He was like the sun, the flowers and the moon and we will miss him enormously. The world is a profoundly emptier place without him.” - Bob Dylan on George Harrison

(Sunset (sunsetagain)) AC ROGUE hidden tracks part 2

I tried to figure out their dialogues through thousands of audio pieces, funny.

(maybe argue in homestead after the earthquake)

We were children, and fools, Liam!

Since we were boys, you’ve been…running or not, and had little common sense!

You’re fine want to talk about common sense, following the order of a bitter mad man like Achilles?

You will sit, and wait! And when the time comes, you will show Achilles respect, if that’s the last thing you do!

You are me in your sights, Liam! Don’t deny it!

Don’t! Not another word!


(Liam talking about the northern lights. You will get new feels from the ending of the game, like those lights came to take Liam away)

Here they are, the northern lights.
Such marvelous colors, hanging from the clouds.
What do you think causes those lights? Heaven? Science? Who could know?


(if Morrigan was heading the wrong direction. please, come to China, Peking welcomes you lol)
Are we heading to Nassau, Shay? Because Anticosti is in the other direction.

I wonder what peking is like, we will reach it if we don’t back on course!


(Shay tried to protect George Washington)

Before I killed him, Lawrence told the other Templars to leave George alone. Not to bother him with our business.

If I had a brother, and I told Achilles not to bother him with Assassin business, do you think he would?


(Shay talking about Achilles)

I saw Achilles sing it to little Connor the other day. It did my head in.

It’s like he’s two different people: with his wife and son, he’s all song and laughter; but with us, he’s a cranky old-school man, all rules are boxing and beatings.


(With Gist)

Call me gist, lad. christopher is my father’s name.

Wasn’t Gist your father’s name too?

Hahaha you and I will get along just fine i should think.


(With Cook)

You guess my meaning? On this map, there were lands I think no man has seen. well, no man from our empire at least.

A land that no man has seen…you have me intrigued…Where is it?


(Chasing Liam in the far north)

Yes! I chose my own path!

You won’t survive! And even if you do, others will come after you!

I’ll find the box, after I get the manuscript from you!


(Shay called Liam school master before the first naval battle, so this is the second time)

Will there be exam on this, school master?


What have I done?

I didn’t do it…I swear I didn’t do it, I didn’t mean to!

This is my fault, my fault!

I’m sorry! I did this to you! I’m sorry!

What…What is that? Stop it! Get away from me!

(Maybe some NPC when Shay is in sickbed?)
Can’t blame him. I’ve been having nightmares about that earthquake every night.

I’m responsible for this!

Don’t make this difficult for yourselves.

I doubt. The Assassins won’t stop their mad quest. The are desperate to find piece of eden. Especially now that half of their brotherhood is dead.

(I think Shay remembers what happened to his father)
I’ve learned to mistrust calm waters. They are out there, waiting.

On your post, Gist! The colonel is in trouble!

What’s fortunate is that man o'war can’t follow us anymore.

It’s like hunting fireflies.

I know fee is not the French king’s bad, now I know you are pulling my leg.

I. DON’T. NEED.

I said never I’ve come here!

On me!

Over the last 500 years, there’s been a continuing effort to standardize all spelling – and a lot of the stuffy academic types making the rules made a real mess of it. In the 16th century, the people putting together dictionaries decided to insert a “b” into “debt” and “doubt” to remind everyone that they had evolved from the Latin word “debitum” – even though the preferred spellings, “dette” and “doute,” made way more sense. But hey, at least the common man would forever be reminded of precious Latin, thus ensuring that it would never become a dead langua- oh wait, no, it died more completely than an engineer on the away team, didn’t it? The academics did the exact same thing with “receipt” (then spelled “receit,” but drawn from the Latin word “recepta”) and smugly smirked down at generations of dyslexics accidentally writing “recipe.”

Changing the spelling to match the Latin origin is at least mildly understandable, if kind of a dick move – but less understandable is changing spellings to match Latin words they have nothing to do with, which also happened.

The origin of the word “island” is the Old English word “yland” or “iland,” but since the Latin word “insula” has a similar meaning, academics decided to just throw an “s” in there, because more Latin = more smarter. That one was so influential that it actually changed the word for the central walkway in a church – up until then spelled “aile” – to “aisle,” because “s” is friggin’ sexy, we guess. All those curves. Go ahead and toss it in there. Liven that sucker up.
