On the subject of Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hearts, I just also have to say it makes zero sense for Cullen to support Gaspard?

Cullen is Fereldan. Gaspard’s #1 goal is to INVADE FERELDEN and bring Orlais back to its Glory Days™. Like that is is main reason for wanting to take the throne!

But no, the writers’ desire to have each advisor say something different outweighs logic. (And I mean, they could have just as easily had him say something like, “I don’t know, fuck politics” which would have fit his personality better anyway, considering that’s been his stance on it up to this point.)


OTP MEME: [2/3] funny scenes

“This is clearly man’s work. Where is he?”

Apparently white nationalists need a safe space from polite but critical theater kids who make Founding Fathers propaganda now. Little bit ironic considering the Trump camp’s stance on trigger warnings and the like lmao

After the interviewer leaves and they’re sitting around wasting time until the performance, Jongin looks over, licks his lips and says, “Hey.”

“Hmm?” Taemin’s eyes are still on the girl group performing onscreen but he tilts his head towards Jongin to show he’s listening. Slim fingers tap on his knees as he bobs to the catchy backbeat.

Do you like anyone in EXO?” Jongin finally asks. It was one of the questions in the interview that had been asked of Taemin and the one that Jongin had interrupted by obnoxiously exclaiming, “Me, of course!” They hadn’t gotten around to Taemin’s answer after that. Jongin has a bad habit of ruminating over past events no matter how seemingly insignificant, because he’s learned the hard way that being good-looking and popular doesn’t seem to stop him from saying stupid things on national television.

Taemin glances at him and chuckles. “Why,” he says, “You like anyone in EXO?”

Jongin balks and says, “I didn’t mean it like that!”

“How’d you mean it then?”

“I just,” Jongin struggles for the words. “I don’t know. You looked like you had something to say! You made kind of a face.”

“I made a face,” Taemin repeats with an incredulous smile. Jongin thinks it’s a good thing that Taemin is attractive becomes sometimes he can be the most condescending little shit you’ve ever met.

“oh my…” tobias stood frozen in his place, his anger suddenly replacing itself with confusion as the familiar face stood in front of him. he hadn’t seen anastasia in years and even then he didn’t want to considering his stance on how the two’s relationship ended. he was never one to stay mad at anyone but the vargas boy never found closure which is what made this harder than he’d thought. “i-i was just coming to t-tell you to um– keep it down please? i live next door and i can’t focus on my uh– my work with all of the noise.”

If I were President, I wouldn’t let Vladimir Putin get away with it.

Rand Paul, demonstrating how far an apple can fall from a tree.

Here’s his father’s take for comparison. 

Rand may very well be the best option on ballots come 2016 (probably by a lot, considering his purported stance on drones and the NSA and the TSA and “Obamacare” and the budget, relative to the other potential candidates at least), but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’d be a good option. Particularly not when he demonstrates an eagerness for foreign meddling, even if it is less blood-thirsty than his predecessors…

Bonnie Kristian (hipsterlibertarian) noted yesterday, in chastising certain libertarians who are displeased with Rand Paul, that we must be able to distinguish and prioritize some issues over others to best analyze candidates. She explained that some issues are more central and of higher importance than others, and as such should carry more weight in our analysis. 

My stance on voting in general notwithstanding, I can certainly agree with that. And I contend that war is a big issue.

Shulk definitely sets an interesting precedent as the first character who can alter their stats on the fly. Though we wouldn’t necessarily call him the series’ first “stance” fighter, since there have been characters who can alter their movesets in the past!

Though the feature is being removed this time around, transforming characters have been able to alter their movesets with the press of a button (well, Samus was a bit more complicated than that). One could consider Zelda Smash’s first stance character, though we agree that Smash uses the mechanic much differently than most games.

Shulk has a lot of interestinig traits to offer, and is just one more example of how unique Smash 4’s newcomers are going to be.

the only comprehensive way this is achievable is a greens government, which won’t happen. ever

liberal stand for none of these.
labor likes their NBN and energy and it’s questionable about the gay marriage stance  considering their years of gyrating

both parties treat indigenous people and refugees with contempt

i know this is gonna sound harsh and unusual considering my usual stance on being passionate abt hobbies but some people need to just. stop. and step away from their fandoms. if you devalue a real live human being or the trauma theyve been thru based on how they feel towards the charas you love or hate, stop and step away. your fictional characters are not more important than the real people youre hellbent on hurting to make yourself feel better.

anonymous asked:

jesus loves you with his whole life daryl, i hope you know that. he loves you so much. he wants kids but knows you dont and isnt saying anything because he loves you. and hes okay to let go of that because he knows loving you is enough. i know you dont want kids, but deep down inside if there is a part of you that does but is just afraid--of the risk, of how good of a father youll be--please consider changing your stance & taking that risk. because i know you love paul too. and hes worth it.

D: …don’t wanna hurt ‘im or the kid, y’know? M’scared I’ll be like ‘im…

y’all. we saw Fantastic Beasts yesterday and having come to look at the internet after the fact I am considering just deleting my previous stance on The Discourse - you know, the one where I was like ‘I don’t care what you do so long as you tag it appropriately and why are you being such a dick to people trying to protect themselves, maybe stop doing that’

I’m probably going to end up going full hardcore GET OFF THE INTERNET AND THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU’VE DONE over this movie and I’m already exhausted just contemplating it

god, save me from people who won’t think about things. grant me the fucking ability to write a magical post that travels like lightning around the internet and somehow explains to people that having all of a horrible criminal’s attention focused on you isn’t a form of love to chase or want or romanticise or otherwise glorify to yourself. AIM HIGHER. WANT BETTER THINGS, INTERNET. GOD. THEY’RE REALLY BAD PEOPLE!!!! WANT BETTER THINGS!!!!!
