SInce I just finished Mass Effect 1 and did l i t e r a l l y every single sidequest, I’ve compiled a list of all the BULLSHIT Cerberus pulled in the first game:
Allowed a full platoon of soldiers to be eaten by thresher maws (potentially Shepard’s platoon)
Then captured one of the survivors and giddily injected him with thresher maw poison just to see what would happen
Turned an entire colony of people into husks
Released hundreds of sick, violent rachni into the galaxy by transporting eggs incompetently
Lured ANOTHER platoon of soldiers to a thresher maw nest to see how they get murdered
Then injected their admiral with some kind of poison and threw him in a cage with husks
By the time I’d finished the game, I was dreading playing ME2 because the thought of working with that same organization made me ill.
Predictable binch that I am, my point here is that I really need y’all to stop blaming Kaidan and thinking he’s out of line for not fucking trusting Shepard in ME2 because literally imagine that your former commander and friend (and possibly the person you loved) died in a tragic accident and you probably feel responsible for it, but you’ve had to move on for the sake of the Alliance, and then one day out of nowhere, there they are, standing in front of you - working as a Cerberus operative. You either would NEVER believe it was the same person, or you’d believe they were possibly brainwashed, or maybe you’d just think they’d straight up betrayed you for an organization that has historically ruined and manipulated human lives.
Are you honestly gonna tell me you’d abandon your moral code, your honor, and your loyalty as a soldier to your military, just because “they’re Shepard” and that’s supposed to be enough, point blank?

weird to see ppl up in ARMS about how the cast and crew of la la land were embarrassed on national television and not caring at all about how moonlight’s HISTORIC MOMENT was ruined in all the confusion
Nestled in an old ruin, this new building at the creative campus at Snape Maltings in Suffolk, blends perfectly without trying to be something it isn’t.
In a push to repurpose ruins in Europe, Haworth Thomkins has done an exceptional job in ensuring the history of these ruins are retained.
The oxidised steel shell was prefabricated and craned into position to ensure the ruins weren’t disturbed during construction. The shape of the new shell reflects the Victorian era industrial buildings that form the campus. The interior was then lined in eco-ply with minimal internal walls to create a multi-purpose space for workshops, performances and exhibitions.
The original ruin had minimal structural work undertaken, to ensure loose brickwork was repaired, but essentially remains “untouched”.
This building forms part of the “Re-Cycle: Strategies for Architecture, City and Planet” exhibition at MAXXI in Rome until 29 April 2012.
Today’s Leave No Trace tip: Leave what you find. When exploring public lands, you may come across cultural and historical artifacts, as well as interesting rocks, plants, or other natural resources. Please leave them where you find them!
Cultural resources on public lands give us a look into our past and are sometimes the only thing that remains from an area. Please respect the historic nature of these cultural resources and do your part to protect these artifacts so that the next generation can appreciate their historic value. Leave ruins the way you found them and don’t touch rock paintings.
Be careful of introducing and transporting non-native species, which can potentially cause a lot of damage on public lands. Clean off your boats and vehicles before leaving an area and make sure you didn’t pick up any seeds on your clothing.
We hope you continue to enjoy your public lands responsibly and safely!
Split is the second largest city in Croatia and the largest city in the Dalmatia region. The city was first built around retired emperor Diocletian’s Palace, in an area that now makes up half of the Old Town area. The city was one of the most important economic hubs along the Adriatic shoreline.
After being occupied by the Romans, Venetians, Ottomans, Hungarians, Austrians, French and Germans, Split became a part of the Republic of Croatia. Since then, the city has somewhat re-branded itself as a vibrant tourist destination. The city boasts historical churches, Roman ruins, art galleries, museums and a beautiful harbour. The city centre is protected by a UNESCO world heritage listing.

An approach to the private and personal side of Toshiya, Dir en grey’s bassist. The fourth theme of these series is “Touch”. Focusing in things he touches every day, we asked him about them. We also took pictures of him with his personal effects, talked about memories and his current state. We explored touch and the feeling related to some things that are in Toshiya’s heart.
