i can get a degree in this right now

God the degree to which Bail Organa can Get It is honestly very distracting to me right now, and I imagine the Rebellion felt the same considering their vastly improved success rate after he died, which was, don’t get them, a tragedy, a heinous grief that helped fuel them, but also like……have you seen Jimmy Smits. Look at him. Now you can’t think thoughts, and I’m sorry, but now there’s no thinking room. How are you supposed to plan a rebellion

Genuine bra question!

Okay guys, I’m standing outside right now, waiting for my kiddo to get out of school in a -4 degrees Celsius weather, shamelessly re-reading “Had I only known” by Trixie because it just reappeared on my dash this morning (a girl has to do what she can to keep herself warm, right?)
And I suddenly have a question. Like, a genuine one… What is it with front clasp opening bras? I mean, I know they exist, and I know I read a copious amount of fics where Scully is wearing one of those. So here’s my question. Is it like something that was fashionable in the late 90s, or is it something that you guys still wear today? Is it sexy, or just something practical? Or can it be both?
I’ve never even seen one in real life, I mean, maybe that’s because we have a reputation for lacy impossible lingerie over here… I’ve always worn bras that have clasps in the back, so I really am clueless!

@therobbinsnest? @alldolleduppink? @sunflowerseedsandscience? @storybycorey? Or anyone else, really. Maybe you guys could tell me…

My big French boobs (that could never on earth wear such a bra for lack of support, I’m sure!) thank you very much for your input…

Sherlock X Reader: Heatwave

noeypiiepiie asked: Hi! Could you write a Sherlock x (fem)Reader fic where there’s a heat wave and they’re trying to cool down? Thanks :)            

-X-

“Why is it so hot?” I groaned, fanning myself with my book. It was currently over 30 degrees and to say I was hot, would be an understatement. At least I wasn’t the only one boiling to death.

“Because the sun is- I can’t concentrate” Sherlock, my boyfriend, sighed, giving up and attempting to open the windows wider than they already were.

“It won’t work. Do we have any ice cream?” I asked, walking over to the freezer. Opening, I spotted a head.

“This will do, hope you don’t mind.” I said, grabbing the head and walking back into the lounge.

“Right now, I don’t care. I can get another one. Come here” He said, making room for me on the couch. As I walked over, he quickly pulled me down, grabbing the frozen head.

“That was rude” I laughed, wiping the beads of sweat that had formed on my forehead. He chuckled a bit, before placing the head on my forehead.

“I feel like a baked potato.” I said, watching Sherlock place to head on himself. Suddenly, an idea formed in my head.

“Come on, we’re going out” I announced, jumping up from my previous seat.

“Hm?”

“Come on, we’re going out” I repeated, smiling at the sight of my boyfriend spread out on the couch, with a frozen head on his. John was right. We are a strange couple.

“Where?” He asked, opening one eye to look at me.

“Just trust me.” I smiled.

“Fine” He huffed, standing up and putting his shoes on, not bothering with his coat or scarf.

After we left the flat, we began to walk down the busy streets of London until we reached where I wanted. Empty, brilliant.

“Where are we?” He asked, looking around.

“You know where we are.” I laughed.

“Yeah, okay, I do” He smirked, causing me to laugh more.

“Come here” I smiled, holding my hand which he took. I began pulling him over to a nearby pool of water where my brother/sister and I would play as children.

“Are we?” He asked, looking between the water and me. I nodded, to which he smiled.

Sherlock followed me, removing his clothing until he was ready to go. As soon as we went in, I sighed in relief. It was cold.

“This is better” He smirked, walking towards me until he was stood in front of me. Quickly, I lifted my hand up and flicked some water at him.

“Did you just-“ He asked, a small smirk making its way onto his face.

“I did” I laughed, squealing as he ran towards me.

“At least it’s cold” I shrugged, after he poured some water over my head.

“You know-“He began.

“If you’re saying it, probably not.” I winked.

“It’s times like these, I realise how much I love you” He smiled.

“Who are you and what have you done with Sherlock?” I joked, laughing as he flicked more water.

“I’m being serious” He said, wiping some water that had dripped down from his curls.

“I love you too”

Unless you have a fever, your body temperature is probably around 98 degrees Fahrenheit right now. Even with a fever, your body is never going to be more than 10 degrees off of that—most mammals lie within this range as well. Glaceon, however, can manipulate its body temperature at will. Glaceon can lower its own body heat, freezing its fur and the atmosphere around it. 

First of all, we need to establish just how cold it gets. I think its safe to say that the whole Eevee line are mammals, meaning Glaceon’s natural body temperature is around 100 degrees. To freeze the water in the air around it, Glaceon’s temperature has got to be 32 or below–the freezing point of water. It is an ice type, after all.

This is a 70 degree drop, how in the world does Glaceon manage this, or even survive it? Well, my answer lies with a frog: the Rana Sylvatica.

Instead of hibernating, this frog survives the winter by literally freezing itself solid. They stop breathing and their hearts stop beating for weeks, and over two thirds of the water in their body turns to solid. And in the spring, when they melt, they start hopping along again like nothing ever happened.

They can do this because their body is rich in cryoprotectants, which are essentially an organic antifreeze. In their blood and tissues, the cryoprotectants lower the freezing point of water so that their blood doesn’t freeze when the rest of them do. Similar to how salt water does not freeze at the same temperatures as pure water.

When an animal freezes to death, it is typically because their cells shrink and die out. Cryoprotectants protect against that. We can infer that because of this, Glaceon’s body is also rich in cryoprotectants. In fact, probably a lot of ice types and resistant-to-ice type pokémon are.

Okay, but the frogs are coldblooded. They freeze simply from being outside during winter. If Glaceon is a mammal, its temperature is naturally around 100 degrees fahrenheit. How does it lower its temperature so drastically so fast, especially since the change is only temporary?

Our bodies are full of chemical reactions happening all the time. Releasing hormones, digesting food, even moving our muscles are all chemical processes. There are types of chemical reactions that actually absorb heat, called endothermic reactions. If you’ve ever seen an “Instant Cold Pack” you know what this feels like. Two reactants (typically water and a chemical like ammonium nitrate or urea) interact and drastically lower the temperature of the freeze pack. My hypothesis is that Glaceon uses a similar process to lower its body temperature. Its not like these are lab-exclusive chemicals; urea is found in most mammal urine. 

So Glaceon uses a controlled chemical reaction to drastically lower her body temperature. It’s only temporary because after the reaction wears off, her natural body temperature takes over again and warms her back up.

Glaceon can temporarily lower its body temperature using a chemical reaction. Its body is rich in cryoprotectants, which allow it to survive such low body temperatures.

This kind of freeze resistance is found in a lot of cold-blooded animals, like fish and frogs. While mammals as a whole seem much more sensitive to lower temperatures, studies have shown our cells, on an individual level, are not.

Not Without Me

Request: hey! I love your imagines btw but was wondering if I could request a Bucky x Reader imagine where the readers friends with the avengers and is dating Bucky and the reader leaves for vacation and ends up getting into a plane crash but doesn’t die and like the avengers and Bucky visit them at the hospital and if you want you can throw in like a cute moment between Bucky and the reader at the hospital :))

Blog Tag: @ssprayberrythings

A/N: It is so cold here, my toes are freezing in my own house. I’d sure like some warm vacation temperatures right now. It is twenty degrees Fahrenheit warmer in the reader’s vacation destination than it is here where I live.

Story time:

I was visiting family at one point, and my father started telling me a story. He went to college, and got a degree in criminal justice, and social work. Now it seems like he would be able to go into careers involving the law, right?

Well he went ti the station to apply for the jobs, and this is what they said to him, “I’m sorry, even though you clearly have the experience, and backround we need, we haven’t met our quota of minorities, so we can’t hire you.”
Isn’t that discrimination against a white man. A white, straight, cis, male didn’t get the job offer because thst was what he was.

So everytime people tell me that whites will never experience discrimination it makes me sick.

It wasn’t reverse racism, it was just racism.

Finally received an official diagnosis for my mental illness (yay!). GAD and Major Depressive Disorder; it’s nice to have that recognized on my medical file so I can start getting treatment (finally!). 

Also, the psychiatrist was super nice and professional; he provided me lots of information while doing the psychosocial evaluation and expanded on areas I wasn’t so sure about. I also told him about my gender identity and he asked if that was something I wanted to start working on right now and to what degree; I told him I wanted to first work on the anxiety/depression deal since it is way worse than the gender-related anxiety, but that eventually I wanted to move on towards transitioning. 

A+++ doc. 

anonymous asked:

5-10 degrees celcius?? That's so cold?? My house is normally at 25 or something how do you live

To me it’s not. Right now it’s 5C and that’s good weather for me.

25C is too much. That’s the beginning of summer of here. I’m more adapted to the cold than to the hot because at least in the cold, you can bundle up but in the heat, all you have left is your skin.

My body can’t deal with that either because I get physically ill when the temperature hits above 26C.

anonymous asked:

You probably already know this, but getting a masters degree that's taught in english for Psychology is free in Norway. Wishing you all the best!

Hello! Thanks for the message! I was already aware of this and I have considered it but I would still have to afford accomodation and similar fees that I just can’t right now, but maybe in the future. Have a great day!

anonymous asked:

What do you think will happen when Annie wakes up? How do you think others will react? I can't see Levi, Eren and the othera forgiving her..

It’ll partially depend on the circumstances. Will she be woken up by the SC, or will she free herself? If the latter, does she get caught trying to escape or does she take the initiative to contact them? 

As for the actual reactions…I’m sure that, somewhere, there will still be a certain degree of resentment. She has been partially responsible for thousands of dead people, including many soldiers they were close to (hi squad Levi). Even if she’s been out of it for 2 months, even if they come to the conclusion that she was an indoctrinated child who didn’t have much of a choice, these facts still stand and can be hard to forgive. 

But right now, there are bigger issues at hand. The walled world is faced with a threat far greater and powerful than ever imagined. No amount of 3dmg soldiers will make a big difference. But Annie is unique, she possesses the power of a titan, with many different and useful abilities. More importantly than that, she should have at least some degree of updated knowledge of Marley’s plan/or anything else concerning the outside world. Point is, in a conflict in which the walled world is horribly outnumbered and outgunned, having Annie as a potential ally would be a huge benefit; and for that reason, I believe the SC will be able to put aside the personal issues with her if it comes down to it. 

What Scares Me the Most

If you ask any Millennial
What scares them the most,
Many will say, “The Future.”

We’re just taking our first steps
Into this terrifying world of adulthood
And to be quite honest…

We’re fucked.

It’s a Catch 22.
You need a degree
To get anywhere in this world.

But a degree is no guarantee
Of anything but crippling debt
For most of our lives.

By the time I graduate,
I’ll be over a hundred-thousand
Dollars in debt.

I honestly can’t picture myself
Ever owning a home
Or raising kids

Because this massive debt
Will follow me for at least
The next 20 years

And that’s if I’m lucky.
But enough about the future,
Let’s talk about the Now.

Right now, I work 24 hours a week
On top of being
A full-time student.

The rest of my time is split
Between commuting and homework
And occasionally my social life.

A few people have asked me,
“How do you do it?”
And the answer is…

I have no idea.

I have an anxiety disorder,
Which means my brain is constantly
Thinking of every possible

Worst Case Scenario
And actively trying to prevent
Bad things from happening.

I also have depression,
Which means that my brain is also constantly
Thinking of how pointless it all is.

It’s hard to get out of bed in the morning
When all your goals seem impossible.
Why should I even try?

What’s the point of going to work
When I don’t make enough
To even live in the City?

What’s the point of going to school
When I’m probably going to fail
And end up crying in front of everyone?

What’s the point of looking
For an apartment in the City
When the market rate is too damn high?

What’s the point of trying to change things
When people with too much money
Have rigged the system against us?

And what is the point of loving myself
When the person I am
Is nothing like the person I want to be?

I have no idea.

Here's a meta about why  Lance would be a Ravenclaw(by a Ravenclaw)

This post is inspired by @voltronincorrectquotes ‘s thing on the Paladins and their Hogwarts house! This is also my first time writing a meta so bear with me.

Okay first off let me start by listing the character traits for Ravenclaw Intelligence,Wit, Wisdom, Creativity, Originality, Individuality and Acceptance. I’m going to cover each of these in order.

 (This post is gonna get hella fucking long so read the rest under the cut)

lala-sara  asked:

I know you still hasn't watch Enterprise but what your initiative thoughts on Archer's dog? On the theme of pets in redesign universe. Could Archer in your universe have a dog at all? I imagine it would be an issue if he had, with Vulcan on board an all.

I’ve answered very similar before! …The only problem is, I can’t really find any of the posts haha. I was all ready to drop a bunch of links, and the only thing I can find is this and it barely touches the subject. I’ve definitely talked at length about this before, because I get asks about human-vulcan relationships very frequently (I’m probably misrepresenting but I feel like 30-50% of my asks are about Vulcans haha), but I can’t find the posts right now. You’re correct, anyway: human subjugation of dogs and horses is a problem to Vulcans and Romulans (to varying degrees).

In theory, Archer can have a dog. Vulcans will have met dogs the moment first contact was initiated, they know about them, they’re under no illusion that their body-type and general mammalian features are unique. Vulcans pride logic and reason, and having been around longer than humans, they know their history and they know how language and oppression works. It would be just as important not to make disparaging remarks on how primitive humans seem, as it is to brush off/rise above remarks humans may make based on the roles of Earth dogs.

All that is easier said than done though, especially during the early years of forming a relationship between humans and vulcans. I don’t know much about Archer, but I’ve also not heard the best things. It seems like T’Pol gets the short straw like 99% of the time, and is subject to some horrible stuff, some of which really shouldn’t be in Star Trek in the first place. Whether he has a dog or not (and yes, I imagine he does), Archer is pretty likely to come out with some questionable language when addressing or talking about T’Pol. When you think about how patronising “good girl” would be to hear for T’Pol in humanoid form, you can imagine how much worse it would be in a canine-like form.

And if any human ever says “bitch” to her or in earshot of her, I think she’s walking there and then. Fuck fostering relations, find someone else for the job, etc.

One day when I finally watch ENT, I’ll be able to better know how Archer and T’Pol (and other crewmembers) would actually react, but in the meantime you’ll have to draw your own conclusions I think!

So I woke up at 3 AM with lots of anxiety and couldn’t go back to sleep so I started researching Antarctica and YOU GUYS literally it is so weird. So it’s summer there right now and the high for today is -52 degrees??? No one lives there except scientists and they can only withstand like two summers and a winter, also there is no spring or fall in Antarctica. There have been reporting that the ship that comes to get the scientists to bring them home couldn’t make it through the ice and the scientists had to stay an extra and unanticipated winter??? Can you imagine??? ALSO there is a treaty that says you cannot go to Antarctica without your government’s permission??? And historically Antarctica wasn’t even SIGHTED until 1820. And when the first people arrived no one was there. It is one of the only places in our world that was actually discovered without people having been there for like thousands of years already??? I just can’t believe this place actually exists in world and it is crazy and SO COLD and scary

What a beautiful day. This time last week we were dealing with snow, and right now, we’re pushing 60 degrees. Mother Nature has a way to remind us she’s in charge.

 So today. Mandatory staff meeting (sigh), which was over 2 hours today, wasn’t too eventful. At least it’s extra pay though, so there is that. With a terrible pay period coming up between the 16th and 28th, I’ll take what I can get right now. At least the future looks brighter there though with pay days finally reaching 9+ days instead of the 8 average I’ve had to deal with all of December, January and February. As I get paid by the hour, all the hours and days matter for sure.

 Right now I’m comfortably sitting in my room with my Mercury’s coffee beverage enjoying the above average temperatures, and pondering what I’ll do for the afternoon. Still waiting for my package to arrive today - as it’s arriving via USPS, I imagine that it’ll be towards this evening.

 I’ll probably relax for a few then practice makeup some more. I filled out the gender marker change request paperwork and have my doctor’s signature as well, but that probably won’t happen for about another month or so at least as I want to do it at the same time I do my name change, which will hopefully be by the end of March. That sure is coming up quickly though! I hope by the beginning of April I’ll have all that taken care of and behind me. Plus my ultrasound bill at the end of February will be paid off as well, so that’s nice.

 I hope you have all have had/having a nice Tuesday though!
