faultiness

anonymous asked:

A Tobirama fanboy got pissed because I called out their faulty logic of holding only Hashirama responsible for child soldiers. Hashirama established the village system, but its not like the other Hokages couldn't have changed things for the better. Its like Narutards getting pissed when Naruto gets called out on not changing shit up as Hokage. Why shouldn't Hokages get blamed for not changing the bullshit their predecessors established? Every Hokage should be faulted for using child soldiers.

Because naruto fans generally think leaders are just there to have their face on the mountain, they’re not there to make things better. They’re like if a previous leader made a mistake, their successors should continue the mistakes. Besides, successive hokages all continued to benefit from child soldiers, they like that they benefited from Hashirama’s mistakes, but they don’t like being held responsible for perpetuating it.

Naruto fanboys are the same, perhaps even worse. Whenever someone say naruto didn’t reveal the truths of the massacre and abolish the hyuuga branch slavery, they always argue “why does it have to be Naruto?”. The way they view naruto’s character is like 

“you’re not supposed to expect him to actually do his job well, you’re just supposed to listen to his sob story and feel bad for him, and think he deserves the world. You’re just supposed to be happy he achieved dream eventho he fucking sucks at his job. He’s just a dumb fantasy for losers who think they should have important jobs eventho they’re obviously too dumb for those jobs. Why’re you expecting competence? Competent and smart people are not relatable!”

Jinkook Idea #8

For every lab session, I’m always assigned to Station 4 but today I decided to switch it up to Station 7, at the back. What is this? Did I just find a cheat sheet? THANK HEAVENS SINCE I WASN’T PAYING ATTENTION. Better leave a note as thanks!

The next lab session at Station 7:

Dear whichever ass that stole my results 

YOU’RE A JERK. I WORKED HARD FOR THAT AND YOU JUST TOOK IT AND LEFT A ‘thanks man’ BEHIND.  I HOPE YOUR MEASURING CYLINDER HAS A FAULTY BASE AND YOUR BUNSEN BURNER RUNS OUT OF FUEL DURING YOUR LAB! 

*PS. You’re welcome even though you weren’t supposed to take my work. And no I did not get in trouble. You have to thank my lab partner who has an eidetic memory for that.

*PPS. Also, I’m pretty sure we were doing different experiments? What could you possibly need my lab results for? Wait. Doesn’t year 1s use this lab after us? Dude… the results that you took were for a year 4′s class… good luck explaining that.

“Fuck… and what the hell? Those are the weakest insults and bad wishes ever.”

How to be More Thick-Skinned

1. Don’t take criticism personally. Instead, realize that criticism says more about them than it does about you.

2. Distinguish between facts and subjectivity. Most criticisms are just personal opinions. They are not objective and they don’t reflect the truth.

3. Look at the beliefs you hold about yourself. Do you feel defensive and under attack because you don’t believe in yourself?

4. Learn what you can from any comments that are made – and discard the rest as being useless information.

5. Decide not to ruminate on barbs or criticisms - as that will reinforce the faulty message in your brain.

6. Choose to spend more time with people who’re affirming – and minimise the time you spend with those who put you down.

7. Look for a role model who can handle criticism – and try to copy them, so you become more thick skinned, too.

Do you Suffer from Imposter Syndrome?

Impostor syndrome is a psychological condition where people are unable to believe in their successes. Thus, despite the evidence that points to the fact that they are skilled, capable and competent they write this off as temporary – or timing and good luck. Thus, they constantly struggle with feeling like a fraud.

So what are some ways that you can counteract this syndrome?

1. Admit this is something that you suffer from. When we know we’re not alone, and our symptoms have a name (because they are part of an identified disorder) it can help disperse the feelings of anxiety and shame.

2. Distinguish between facts and feelings. Everyone feels stupid and inept at times. That doesn’t mean we’re stupid. Our feelings aren’t facts. So try to be objective - and seek out the real truth.

3. Don’t demand perfection. It is good to set goals and have high standards for yourself. However, it’s unhealthy to obsess over every little thing. You’ll simply waste a lot of time and never feel quite satisfied. And all of us are human and make lots of mistakes.

4. Take a look at the rules you have imposed upon yourself. Are you saying to yourself: “I have to always get it right”;”I should never ask for help”; or “It is bad to make mistakes”? These are misguided rules that undermine your self-esteem. They set you up for failure as they close the door to help.

5. Change the tapes in your head. Instead of constantly repeating faulty self-destructive thoughts (such as “Wait till they discover just how useless I am”) replace it with a thought that builds esteem and confidence. (Such as, “I’m better at this now as I know what I am doing … It’s so much easier when you’ve been here for a while.”)

6. Don’t look to others to affirm your success. Don’t look to other people to rate and judge your work. Set your own personal goals, and mark your progress and success.

7. Fake it till you make it. Almost every individual who succeed in life has a period when they’re acting, as they don’t feel confident. It doesn’t mean that they’re a failure, a fake or a fraud. It means that they’re still learning, and are not afraid to try.

Trump administration officials, under pressure from the White House to provide a rationale for reducing the number of refugees allowed into the United States next year, rejected a study by the Department of Health and Human Services that found that refugees brought in $63 billion more in government revenues over the past decade than they cost.
 

The draft report, which was obtained by The New York Times, contradicts a central argument made by advocates of deep cuts in refugee totals as President Trump faces an Oct. 1 deadline to decide on an allowable number. …
 

The internal study, which was completed in late July but never publicly released, found that refugees “contributed an estimated $269.1 billion in revenues to all levels of government” between 2005 and 2014 through the payment of federal, state and local taxes. “Overall, this report estimated that the net fiscal impact of refugees was positive over the 10-year period, at $63 billion.”
 

But White House officials said those conclusions were illegitimate and politically motivated, and were disproved by the final report issued by the agency, which asserts that the per-capita cost of a refugee is higher than that of an American.
 

Strikingly, administration officials defend this by saying the analysis was faulty because it took into account the contributions that refugees make by paying taxes — something they dismiss as politically motivated. Instead, those officials say, it should have factored in only their cost in public services, and compared those costs to average native-born Americans. According to two sources who spoke to the Times, Stephen Miller, the architect of Trump’s hard-line anti-immigrant agenda, “personally intervened in the discussions on the refugee cap to ensure that only the costs — not any fiscal benefit — of the program were considered.”

— 

An internal report undercut one of Trump’s biggest goals. So the study was scrapped.

Goddamn fucking idiot Stephen Miller is such a pathetic little racist piece of shit.

Self-Improvement with Astrology -☉Sun
  • The ego, life force, identity, who we are to become, our core energy
  • Ruler of Leo, exalted in Aries, fall in Libra, detriment in Aquarius

Stressful aspects to the sun can indicate issues with the father or the energies of the other planet(s) can be perceived as a threat to the individual’s identity and ego and they can display negative traits of the sign or appear immature. Sun in Libra/7th house or in Aquarius/11th house can have a harder time trying to establish their identity, Libra only having an image of the self in the presence of others and Aquarius finding themselves in groups and society. Aries/1st house and Leo/5th house, being strong placements for the sun, may not have as much difficulty. Aries has no trouble establishing and asserting their identity while Leo could never let anyone forget who they are. However, in understanding where positive aspects help and harsher aspects challenge, astrology can be used as a guide to grow and evolve.

Harmonious, soft aspects = talents, gifts, laziness
(sextiles, trines, conjunctions to benefics) 

Harsh, hard aspects = challenges, blocks, diamonds in the rough
(squares, oppositions, conjunctions to malefics)

Sun/Moon: Soft: Nurturing figure supports identity, emotions align with who they are Hard: the nurturing figure doesn’t hold a consistent presence or influence, what they feel is at odds with who they are

Appreciate the nurturing figures in your life, whether it be your mother or a friend. Understand that receiving emotional support and expressing emotion does not make one weak or lesser of a person. 

Sun/Mercury: The only aspect the sun can make with Mercury is the conjunction (sun and Mercury can only be 28 degrees apart at most). With the conjunction, thoughts and ideas are infused into and define the identity of the individual. If this person feels as though they are not being heard or truly listened to, they can take it as an offense or threat to who they are.

Understand that your voice is important and makes a difference whether or not you are speaking or are being heard directly. Resist the urge to analyze, define, and criticize every aspect of yourself.

Sun/Venus: The only major aspect the sun can make with Venus is the conjunction (max 48 degree distance between both planets). Here all of the qualities of Venus join with the identity of the individual. The individual can be all of the grace and charm typical of Venus, but requires love, affection, and attention to feel validated.

Love yourself and afford yourself the attention you might otherwise (negatively) seek from others. Avoid laziness and use your ability to harmonize to solve issues peacefully rather than ignoring them. 

Sun/Mars: Soft: Easy assertion of the will, their desires and instincts align with who they are and who they strive to become Hard: Identity/Ego is asserted in situations where it may not be necessary, forceful nature and short temper can run roughshod on others

Assess situations before taking action. Know that putting down the sword can be more honorable than fighting to the death. Understand that roadblocks are put in to be driven around, not through (you’ll still reach your destination).

Sun/Jupiter: Soft: Ego is wise, identity easily grows and develops, individual naturally draws positive things to them Hard: Ego inflates like a cheap balloon and is just as fragile, they might get themselves in over their head and get out of trouble just by the skin of their teeth

Appreciate the fortunate nature of your life and every good thing that comes your way. Avoid pushing the limits just to see how far they go. Repay debts and stay in good character regardless of how you know people will treat you.

Sun/Saturn: Soft: Slow and steady growth of ego and formation of identity, although the identity may take a long time to form it is relatively peerless to the individual Hard: Ego tries to form either before it faces necessary lessons or it is met with debilitating situations before it can handle them, individual is constantly held in check

Listen to and acknowledge each lesson Saturn has to teach. Understand that Saturn will ultimately refine you and polish you with the finest grit. If you push, Saturn will push back, so roll with what life brings.

Sun/Uranus: Soft: The identity changes easily and quickly, the ego alters and adjusts in order to adapt and survive Hard: Difficulty handling change, individual may act out in shocking ways or dramatically alter some aspect of themselves, identity shifts suddenly as a result of being denied change by the father figure

Accept and find ways to handle and appreciate change. Understand that it is okay to change and to stand out. Being “unique” is not an uncommon thing. Life is never steady, let Uranus teach you how to maintain your balance.

Sun/Neptune: Soft: Ego is colored, but not defined by, the suffering and dreams of others, identity centers around artistic expression and higher vibrations of love Hard: Life feels too mundane, ego shaped by the issues of others, escapist tendencies, takes on issues they cannot handle

Understand that at the end of the day you have to close your eyes and go to sleep and let other people’s issues be their issues– not yours. Offer what of yourself that you can to help and guide people, but understand your own capabilities and limits.

Sun/Pluto: Soft: Individual transforms as necessary in their life, Ego is powerful and holds immense depth Hard: Ego refuses to change and grow without catastrophic event, individual does not face their deeper issues or is in a constant clash with them

Understand that true transformation comes when the things we refuse to face are looked at straight in the eye. The world is not out to get you and there is a generation of people who can benefit from your insight or learn something from you. Pluto will destroy what’s faulty if something better will be able to be put in its place.

100 Instant NPC Agendas

When running campaign encounters, especially in a town or city environment, count on players to surprise you by seeking out encounters with walk-on NPCs you haven’t detailed. 

Whether their characters want to speak to merchants, burghers, servants, or criminals, this list of instant personalities and agendas is perfect for surprise NPCs.

Don’t bother to create an interesting character for every single encounter. 

Many scenes are best left short and sweet, allowing you to move on to an entertaining scene that relates to the main adventure. 

Every so often, you should throw in a memorable character whose agenda has nothing to do with the main plot. 

This creates the illusion that your world is a living, complex place, not a mere backdrop for the adventurers’ activities. 

Often, players remember these improvised characters and come back to them, weaving them into the ongoing story of your campaign.

top 5 drawing tips

1. USE REFERENCES. Not just one reference, but multiple references. Need to draw a cat? Create an entire board on Pinterest and load it with like, 50 pins of different types of cats - also different styles - see what other artists have done to caricature cats. This is what we had to for school - make Pinterest boards for ONE THING - and it REALLY helped. 

2. Break everything down into basic shapes. Do not start off by drawing every little detail. If your foundation is faulty, the entire drawing will be faulty as well. One of my profs sometimes would call heavily detailed art “shiny turds” - meaning, no matter how many details you add on at the end, if the structure and anatomy etc is off, no amount of detail will save it. Example: if you draw a person’s face, and the eyes and nose are in the wrong place, then no amount of eyelashes or make-up or whatever is going to make it look more accurate. If you spend 10 hours drawing something really detailed, and it’s wrong, then you might have just wasted 10 hours (maybe not wasted, but used less efficiently), when you could have spent say, a single hour making sure all the construction and anatomy made sense FIRST, before cleaning it up. Also, draw multiple rough passes at a drawing before you clean it up!! This will give your eyes and brain a chance to see any errors that pop up. 

3. Don’t be afraid to RE-DRAW something. Your second drawing will be better than your first. Your third drawing will be better than your second AND your first. And so on. Try not to fall in love with everything you draw - likewise, learn to accept constructive criticism, so that you are able to re-draw it better than the first/second/third times. Reach out to peers and have them look at your art - you won’t believe how helpful a fresh set of eyes can be.

4. Flip your canvas horizontally to see errors/use a mirror/shine a light through and look at the reverse side. It is incredibly difficult to see errors in your drawing after you’ve been staring at it for hours. Your brain gets used to seeing what you’re seeing. Trick your brain into seeing something for the first time by looking at it differently. Likewise, you can try and look at it upside down maybe, or backwards. Engage your eyes and brain differently! 

5. PRACTICE. PRACTICE. PRRAAAAACCTIIIIICCEEEE. Draw everything. Did you spend yesterday drawing people? Spend today drawing animals. Spend tomorrow drawing trees and plants. Draw a car. Go outside and draw from life. If you want to improve at a skill, practice all the time. Don’t burn yourself out! Manage your time wisely and pay attention to your body’s needs. Make time for stretching and exercising; a healthy lifestyle will ensure that you can continue to practice your skill, and be the best artist that you can be.

Hey quick reminder that Preston and Harrison are, in fact, assholes?


And before you ask, YES they are my favorite characters, and NO I am not trying to hurt anyone by saying this. I’m just stating the facts: Preston is a self-absorbed jerk, and Harrison has a twisted sense of what’s okay and what’s not.


Before y'all can react and yell at me, let me justify myself:


Harrison is adorable and I love him, but damn the boy’s got problems. See for yourself:

-He has basically scarred Max for life by making him cough up ribbons and bouquets and god knows what else, and his response to doing this was ‘i was trying to hit Neil but oh well.’

-He tricked Neil into believing in magic by making him think Nikki’s life was on the line.

-He pushed Nerris into a lake because he wanted to look like he was helping her out…then nearly drowned them both.

-He broke his and Nerris’s egg, then put the hat back on Nerris’s head—wtf bro

-He offered to saw his parents in half, which on hand is great and all but on the other hand REALLY HARRISON you know your magic is kind of faulty and still you wanna try pulling this shit??

Preston isn’t really problematic like that.., he’s just a jerk that people like to pretend he’s not. He scoffs at everyone’s acting, he screams like a banshee at his grandma, he has some of the best lines in the show (‘my acting career, like the mistakes of so many teenage girls, has been…aborted’)—hell, even when he was being abused by Nurf he maintained his sass levels ('im a terrible parent!’ 'you really are, nurf.’) We are dealing with the loudest, most savage shakespeare ever—and yet people transform him smol cupcake.


Look, I don’t hate these characters. In fact, I adore them. I would kill a man for them. I would take them in my home, and pay good money for their education.

And there’s the thing… when I talk about loving these characters, I mean THESE characters. Not these shy, Tortured™ versions you guys have created.


Did Preston and Harrison have to got through some serious shit? Yes.

Does that make them any less asshole-y? No.


Treat them like the obnoxious drama queen and mag-prick they are, and make them SHINE.

What I say: I’m fine

What I mean: I don’t think people truly comprehend the scope of Allura’s loss. She didn’t just lose her family, she lost her home and her culture. After the war the paladins will be able to go home. Lance will get to stand in the rain again, Pidge will get to hug her mother. Hunk will go back to learning about Fraunhofer lines, Keith will return with more family than he left with. Where will Allura go? Of course that’s a silly question, Allura will stay in the castle ship and continue to work for diplomacy and peace for a universe that has shown her nothing but grief and pain.

Allura will never go home because home no longer exists. And even if she forges a new home Altea will always be gone. She will never see its skies or its animals or the juniberries ever again. Never walk the streets she grew up in and reminisce about the memories there. All the music that she loved, all the food, the art, the literature; was destroyed with her planet. Aleta’s vast history; erased. Because Allura is smart and I’m sure she knows a lot, but we’re talking about thousands upon thousands of records from Altea’s beginning to its destruction. All of which are now gone. Altea lives and dies with Allura because there is nothing left of her culture for her to leave behind. No relics for future generations to examine. She can write down everything she knows and perhaps she will, one day when it hurts less to remember. But the brain is faulty and she’s bound to forget some things. And she doesn’t know everything from the beginning.

Yes, Allura has Coran now but she won’t always. Even Alteans don’t live forever and then she will be alone. Allura must know this on some level; that one day she will truly be the last of her world. Maybe that’s why she seems to bear no grudge against risking death in battle.
