evenly spread

An Open Letter to Reality Number Three

by reddit user Cymoril_Melnibone

Everything was perfect

My parents had a happy, stable marriage, and I was planned almost down to the day of my arrival. My mother wanted to have her baby in June, so that the joys of birthdays and Christmas would be spread evenly through the year.
She was always thinking about what would be best for me.

How classes affect their session

Every class alters the parameters of the session in some unique way

Lord- the aspect is aggressive and pushing against the session
Witch- their aspect must change or the session is screwed. They find a massive loophole
Princes- too much aspect in session
Thieves- their aspect is fragmented and scattered, having no focal point
Knight- not enough of the aspect
Maids- their aspect will soon die without them
Mage- an aspect disaster is coming down the line

Seer- their aspect’s machinations are so vast that they affect most actions in the session, but nobody knows it
Sylph- the aspect is so horribly low it’s no longer a vital part of the session
Page- their session isn’t aware of how important their aspect really is, being neglected even though it’s secretly valuable
Rogue- their aspect is not evenly spread
Bard- they are aspect time bombs and so is everyone else, but nobody wants to admit it
Heir- their aspect is begging to help them, but it is shackled
Muse- the aspect is weak and useless to the session

After the bit in Raising Steam where Moist internally comments on Vetinari’s ability to stand in a room full of people without being noticed I can’t stop wondering if Vetinari is a male witch

Like I know in Night Watch his incredible concealment abilities are put down to his study of camoflauge but what if he’s actually just mastered that thing that Tiffany and Granny Weatherwax do? I mean teen!Vetinari even mentions practising standing completely still an Tiffany mentions standing completely still as something that she has to do in order to do the trick initially

And there’s no denying that the man has a true mastery of headology

I just can’t stop imagining Vetinari watching the city through Borrowed rats

The balance trick applied to the whole city, the Patrician unmoving in the middle while the balance of power slowly spreads evenly between the Watch and government facilities and guilds and private businesses and so many races balance together

(Vimes can tell where he is in the city through the soles of his feet and doesn’t realize that Vetinari can too, he can feel the whole city beneath him, his steading that is built on itself)

He might not do pills and potions on and individual basis but he took a whole city that was sickening and made it better by, in his own mildly tyrannical way, getting people to help each other and to help themselves

(and he knows as well as Granny Weatherwax that there’s a difference between being popular and being essential)

This mouthwatering bacon recipe is everything you want: salty, smoky, crispy, and totally vegan!

Makes 2 ½ cups

Ingredients:
3 tablespoons tamari
1 tablespoon liquid smoke
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon maple syrup
3 cups unsweetened large-flake coconut

Zähnts Türli

Mailänderli are probably one of the most popular christmas cookies in Switzerland, as they are really easy to make and there are tons of ways to decorate them.

Ingredients:

250g soft butter
225g sugar
1 pinch of salt
3 fresh eggs
Zest of 1 lemon (organic)
500g flour
1 fresh egg yolk
1 teaspoon of water

Mix the soft butter, the sugar and the salt in a bowl, then add one egg after the other and stir until the batter is light yellow. Then add the lemon zest and the flour and mix everything together. Let the dough sit for at least in a cold place.

To form the cookies, use cellophane wrap or a little bit of flour to roll it out with a rolling pin until it’s evenly spread out and about 8mm thick. Use cookie cutters in various shapes to cut out the cookies, then put them on a tray with baking paper. Put them into the fridge for about 15 minutes, then paint them with a mixture of the egg yolk and the water. Let them bake for 10min at 200°C, and let them cool down.

Variations:
Don’t paint the Mailänderli with the egg yolk, and decorate them with lemon icing:

150g of powdered sugar
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
(optional: food colouring)

Mix the ingredients until its a viscous icing and decorate the cookies with the mixture after baking them, you can also additionally put lemon zest, roasted almond splitters or sprinkles on the cookies while the icing is still wet

Yuzen-painted kimono. Meiji period (1868-1911), Japan.  The Kimono Gallery.  An impressive silk hitoe (unlined) summer kimono featuring yuzen-dyed fan and shaded bamboo motifs. Red, yellow, green and blue fans are the predominant motif. The Japanese believe that the handle of the fan symbolizes the beginning of life and the bamboo ribs are for the roads of life going out in all directions. Moreover, the action of opening a fan is an auspicious omen for the ‘unfolding’ of the future. As for the bamboo motifs, their evergreen leaves connote 'constancy’, the evenly-spread nodes signify 'moderation’, and its bending in the wind implies 'moral resilience’. Additionally, there are subtle 'yabane’ (arrow feather) motifs that are embroidered at 45 degree angles: these motifs were created utilizing stiff and shiny metallic and black 'urushi’ (lacquered) threads. The design of this kimono is unusual: the dual-colored fans coming out at an angle from the narrow white line bamboo stalks – the total effect is striking, one that both respects tradition, as well as possessing a rather 'modern’ graphic design.

  • Justin: "I live in a building with several other apartments and my neighbors are constantly putting their own junk mail in my mailbox. Is there a good way to get them to stop?" From Nate in New Hampshire.
  • Travis: 'You know who would like this information on moving boxes? Nate would like information on boxes, here you go Nate.'
  • Justin: Yeah, fuck Nate!
  • Griffin: That's the question right? That's the real question behind the question, the sub-question, the sewer system of this question that allows this question to operate. Um, what'd you do, Nate?
  • Justin: What Nate doesn't tell you is, when he has a full bag of trash he just throws it in whatever window is open in his building and just decides he's done with it.
  • Griffin: Hey Nate, what'd you do, bud? 'Cause you did something! Or else this would not be a coordinated effort.
  • Travis: Yeah, it would be evenly spread out but the fact that everybody in the building is like, 'Hey, we can all, like, listen - we called the meeting without Nate here. We can all agree, fuck Nate right? Right? No dissenters? Everyone's on board? Okay.' What'd you do, Nate?
  • Justin: What'd ya do, Nate? Hey Nate, what'd ya do?

Χάρης | Kharis | Creating beautiful relationship with the Theoi

Religious reciprocity. Worship without your ego, and fully devote yourself to the Theoi regardless of how you view Them, and find comfort with being nameless and giving offering. Make prayer meaningful, not just doing it for the sake of praying or for the hope of gaining something. That means nothing. And when the time comes when you are in need, those with kharis have a greater chance of having their wishes filled. Remember to thank the Theoi in advance during a wish, and after if it is fulfilled.

Explanation based on this post.

Simplified meaning: You get what you give, and be thankful for what you do get.
