hindi temple

In Mumbai, just about every Pokestop in Pokemon Go around is a temple. Just imagine kids who live in Mumbai with this game:

Mummy: “अरे बेटा कहाँ पे हंस रेज हो?”
Beta: “मम्मी मैं मंदिर पे जाऊँगा।”
Mummy: “ठीक है, भगवान आशीर्वाद दे!”
Beta: “हाँ मम्मी, भगवान का आशीर्वाद चाहिए। *घंटी बजता है* रब मुझे पिकचु दिखा।”

For you English speakers out there:

Mom: “Son where are you going?”
Son: “Mom I’m going to the temple”
Mom: “OK God bless you”
Son: “Yes mom I need God’s blessing *rings bell* lord show me where Pikachu is”

The sheer irony is that if you go to the Pokestops you get Poke Balls and other stuff so it’s literally like God help me beat my rival

Nintendo found a way to get kids to go to temple man omgggg

Ito ay ilan lamang sa mga nagiging problema ng isang college student.

1. Papel. Lalo na kapag may surprise quiz at wala kang nabiling papel. Kelangan mong paganahin ang spider sense mo kung sinong estudyante ang binilan ng isang pad ng nanay nya at pumila sa mga hihingi. Dahil kung hindi, kelangan mong mag temple run papunta sa canteen para abutan lang ang 20 items na magsasalba sa'yo sa flat 3 na grade.

2. Yung mga prof na terror at grabe mamahiya kapag di ka naka-sagot. Nag-enroll at nagbayad ka para mag-aral at matuto, hindi para pahiyain ng kung sinong prof. dahil lang sa di mo nasagot tungkol sa babylonians na wala namang kinalaman sa buhay mo.

3. Napaka-habang vacant. Papasok ka ng alas-syete hanggang 10am, tapos vacant mo 4-5 hrs at ang layo pa ng bahay nyo. Masarap kung iisipin, pero nakakatamad nang pumasok sa ganong schedule.

4. Math. Hirap na nga tayo sa numbers, dinagdagan pa ng letters + Terror na prof. 

5. Back subjects. Mahirap maging ireg at maligaw sa isang block section, lalo na wala kang ka-close pero sila tropa2x na. Para kang naligaw ng ibang dimensyon. 

6. Late suspension of classes. Lalo na pag bumabagyo. Akala siguro nila pag college ka na, nagiging waterproof ka na. Wala namang nakalagay sa handbook naming “Maging isda ka pag bumabagyo” ah. Feeling ata nila Ark of Noah yung school nyo at yun ang magsasalba sa inyo sa kapahamakan at bubuo ng panibagong henerasyon ng mga tao.

7. Seatplan. Malalayo ka sa tropa mong kasama mo sa kalokohan. At kung minalas-malas ka, matatabi ka pa sa classmate mong amoy diesel o may hininga ng dragon ni Recca. Lalo na sa exam. Mapapalayo ka sa upuan mong may sikreto sa armchair.

8. Yung male-late ka na o may hinahabol kang quiz/exam, tsaka magpapa-gas yung jeep na sinasakyan mo. (Parang nananadya lng.)

9. 5th floor yung classroom mo tapos walang elevator yung building tapos pagdating mo sa classroom napaka-hina ng aircon. (Instant Sauna, lng ang peg!)

10. Pag bakasyon, excited nang pumasok. Pag may pasok na, atat nang magbakasyon. (Wala eh, estudyante eh. Sala sa init, sala sa lamig.)

11. Yung college ka na, pero naka baby bra ka pa din. 

12. Yung kupal mong kaklase na ayaw magpa-kopya e nangopya lang din naman. Sarap bigwasan at i-hadouken ang mukha.

13. Yung moment na, iddismiss na nga kayo at tinanong ng prof na “Any questions?” Tas magtatanong pa yung sipsip at pa-bibo mong kaklase. (Tangina lang sarap pasakan ng bibbo hotdog sa pwet,)

14. “Shet yung ID ko!” Manong, para!

15. HANGOVER!

Tips para makasurvive kayo. Ugaliing pumasok ng madalas! 80% ng studyante sa college ay pumapasa dahil sa attendance. Kahit matalino ka tapos pala absent ka babagsak ka pero kapag pumasok ka ng madalas at kahit gaano kaganda grades mo papasa ka 3.00 o 2.75 or 4.75 sa reverse grading system. Dagdagan nyo na lng kung meron pa kyong naiiisip. <3

"OKAY BUT DON'T USE THE STAR OF DAVID PLEASE???" First off, 6 pointed star =/= the Star of David automatically. The shape has many different meanings and associations. Secondly, this is extremely rude because part of the reason why my shapesona is a 6-pointed star is because my father is Jewish, and learning about Judaism through him has had a big impact on my spirituality. I would like an apology.

Okay so

  1. chill the fuck out
  2. sit the fuck down and listen to an actual Jew about this shit

God, where do I begin… let’s go a couple sentences at a time.

First off, 6 pointed star =/= the Star of David automatically. The shape has many different meanings and associations.

Pretty interesting actually! I’ll give you that. Let’s all get a bit educated on the six-pointed star. The star, also known as a hexagram, has primarily religious connotations. No one really knows when exactly it came into existence - there’s some evidence of them in South Hindi temples, but it could also be the family crest of the original David. It’s also found on a lot of ancient amulets, most of them bearing the Jewish name of G-d. It’s used in Hinduism, Christianity, Islam, theosophy, Raelism, heraldry, occultism, but most prominently in Judaism. In fact, it’s generally recognized as the symbol of Judaism. Y’know, similar to how a cross is generally recognized as the symbol of Christianity.

Pretty neat, right?

So, for that reason, I will primarily be referring to it as the Star of David, or the Magen David.

Secondly, this is extremely rude because part of the reason why my shapesona is a 6-pointed star is because my father is Jewish, and learning about Judaism through him has had a big impact on my spirituality.

Okay. So your dad’s Jewish, and… you’re not? Ooh, hold on, I spotted an ask you answered about this on your blog.

(If you can’t read this for some reason:

Anonymous said: neat shapesona! are you jewish?

Thank you! :D And sort of… It’s kind of hard to explain, haha! My spirituality is a little… unique, I guess? It doesn’t fit under one label necessarily, it involves a spiritual connection to space and dreams and has influences from Judaism as well as Buddhism and other religions. My father is also Jewish and growing up I was always really interested in learning about Judaism and Jewish traditions from him. Sadly I never really got the chance to explore them with him as much as I would’ve liked, because my mom was Christian and was never really happy about the fact me and my dad weren’t. Honestly we’re lucky we get to celebrate Hanukkah. She’s a very controlling person…

But my dad’s a wonderful person who’s always done his best to look out for me and support me despite how difficult that often is with my mom around, and him being Jewish has definitely had an impact on my spirituality and is one of the many reasons why my shapesona is a 6-pointed star, yes. :3 Hopefully that answers your question! XD;)

Okay, aside from the fact that your spiritual connection sounds like a huge load of White Bullshit™, the reason you aren’t allowed to be Jewish is because your mom won’t let you? And yet… your dad is? Alright, alright, sure. (And by the way, Hanukkah is a pretty bad example of your typical Jewish holiday. It’s not important in the slightest and you could easily get away with never celebrating it at all.)

Anyway, this is the big part I wanted to get to.

You’re basing a shapesona off the Magen David, because your father is Jewish. And yet, in your stupid shapesona week post, you said this:

What is a Shapesona?

Why, it’s you as a dream demon!

A demon.

A demon.

Do you realize the parallel you’ve drawn? Did you know that Jews are thought to be devils? (And this isn’t an old thing that’s died out either - my aunt has been asked if she has horns.) Jews are constantly demonized already and we don’t need assholes like you associating the primary symbol of our faith and our culture with even more demons.

Also, you say that I shouldn’t be assuming it’s a Star of David, and then go on to explain that you chose the shape because your dad is Jewish. You’re contradicting yourself, hon.

Which leads me to my next point. You said it yourself: You are not Jewish. I don’t care if your mom doesn’t let you or whatever, but you’re not. You don’t observe our holidays and you don’t follow our traditions. Instead, in some stupid act of rebellion against a controlling parent, you’re slapping my culture’s symbol all over your fictional asswipes. (Yeah, I saw your gemsona.)

Look, this should be simple. If you aren’t actually part of the religion, don’t use the symbol. I don’t use a cross or a crescent moon with a star in it, because I’m not Christian and I’m not a Muslim. I’m an Ashkhenazic Jew and I know that those symbols are not for me.

I would like an apology. 

For what? Calling you out? לאכול את התחת שלי. You don’t deserve one, especially because you came hoity toity into my inbox being a rude jackass. Take your religion-appropriating ass somewhere else, because I’m not putting up with it.
