I'm trying to get some Homestuck cosplay ready, but I'm not sure if it's better to just paint my arms (because the paint comes out on everything) or wear arm socks (which I don't know how to make). Which one would be better?
Armsocks will always be safer and more secure in a con setting. If doing a shoot, water-activated body paint will create a more realistic look than armsocks, though you still need to make sure you seal it well. (I’ve worn this on my arms in a con setting, and while I didn’t have issues, it is 100% not something I’d recommend.) If you wanted to paint your arms for a con setting, alcohol activated paint is really the only way to go, but it’s much more expensive and difficult to use than other forms of paint.
When wearing armsocks, be sure to either create a wrist escape or pack several pairs of plastic gloves so that you can eat and use the restroom without having to remove the armsocks entirely. Simply put on the gloves and then dispose when you are finished and use a fresh pair next time.
You know, had Lucasfilm just been honest and straight-up with us from the beginning about the “no planned plot” thing, I could’ve avoided so much headache. Instead of looking at TFA for planted clues, I could’ve just been wondering what the filmmakers are coming up with next. My expectations wouldn’t have been as high as they were, and I feel like my overall state of mind could’ve been more content if I knew what I was getting myself into with this trilogy.
I'm in my second year at a community college, with a 3.8 GPA and a part of the honors program. I'm looking to transfer to UC Irvine in Fall 2016. My question is that while I am majoring in psychology, I still don't know whether I want to go towards Criminal Psych or Forensic Psych. I am eventually planning on achieving my doctorate. Any insight as to which would be a better field? What are the differences from each other? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
Although they both work closely with the legal system, criminal and forensic psychologists have different focuses. While both professionals generally have a doctorate in psychology, a criminal psychologist evaluates criminals exclusively. A forensic psychologist, by contrast, works with all types of court cases, including civil matters not involving criminals. Much of a criminal psychologist’s work is done on a theoretical basis, before a perpetrator has even been identified, while a forensic psychologist tends to evaluate persons already identified by the courts.
Criminal psychologists focus primarily on determining a motive and creating a profile of the perpetrator, while forensic psychologists specialize in the aftermath of a crime, including evaluating a suspect’s mental state or counseling victims and their families.
Criminal psychology is primarily used to determine the criminal’s reasons for committing a crime; forensic psychology analyzes the effect of the crime on victims and the mental condition of the offender.

I'm scared that I will let the pressure get to me and no colleges will think I'm good enough for them.<p/><b>Farkle:</b> Riley, you are one of the smartest people I know. You have accomplished so much...<p/><b>Riley:</b> What did I accomplished?<p/><b>Farkle:</b> In the past year alone, you were voted captain of the debate team.<p/><b>Riley:</b> Only because you didn't want to be captain.<p/><b>Farkle:</b> The only reason I didn't want to be captain was because I know you are a better captain than I'll ever be. You are a lot smarter than you give yourself credit for. You are still tied with me for the most A's, which my dad hates by the way. (Riley laughs) Everyone loves and respects you.<p/><b>Riley:</b> (looks away from Farkle) Do they though? Don't they see a childish person when they see me? I still use a bunny nightlight. I talk to stuff animals. And they talk back. I always try to ignore when things changed.<p/><b>Farkle:</b> Everyone hates change. And the other things you mentioned, makes you who you are. It makes you Riley, my best friend. There's nothing wrong with that. You are serious when you need to be, but you also have this innocence that people lose as they get older. I'm happy that you never lost that. It's one of the many things I love about you.<p/><b>Riley:</b> (looks at Farkle and smiles) You mean that?<p/><b>Farkle:</b> I do. You helped me to have fun and let loose when I'm stressed. Remember the time, when we were studying at my place and it was raining? (Riley nods her head yes) I was worried about the final exams and you made me go outside, and danced with you in the rain. I had so much fun, that I started not to worried about the exams and I aced them. That was all because of you.<p/><b>Riley:</b> That was one of my favorite memories.<p/><b>Farkle:</b> Mine too. You had made my life better since we met.<p/><b>Riley:</b> You had made mine better too. You're always there for me when I need you. We can talk each other about anything. We challenged each other to be better. I don't know what I would do without you.<p/><b>Farkle:</b> You'll never have to find out. You're stuck with me. We'll always be best friends.<p/><b>Riley:</b> Good.<p/><b>Farkle:</b> I was going to wait to the morning, to give you your present, but now's a good time.<p/><b></b> Farkle walks to the tree and grabs the present.

The Pluto locket represents hope. I hope you never change who you are. The world needs a Riley Matthews.

My ice cream selfies! I did it with all the Overwatch characters I could find that weren’t too busy being cool. ovo I’m not sure how Genji would eat ice cream? I wish him the best though. Then later I found a Geralt!! And he looked so rad. I was gonna take a full picture of him, as I was struggling to hold the ice creams, then was like “you know what, this is better” and he was p down to eat ice cream so.
can you tell which flavor is my preferred sorry you guys get sherbet
I don't know if it'll make ur day better but about the 17/18 fusing into one su style? There's a db heroes trailer in which 17 absorbs her (unwillingly but its still fusion basically) and transforms if ya wanna look it up. :3
I'm not looking for a specific story, but want ones where the Avengers don't know about Steve/Bucky, and then find out. I don't care if Bucky is part of the gang, or still in hiding, but I'm after the avengers being surprised by Steve's sex life.
I hope these fit what you were looking for. Enjoy!
In which there are tuxedoes, vodka martinis (shaken, not stirred), fakeout makeouts, massive property damage, a shark pit, andSteve has an Ursula Andress moment. But mostly, in true James Bond fashion, villains are seduced to the side of good.
After Bucky’s recovery, in the face of SHIELD’s rebirth, and as all the Avengers have found themselves at a comfortable place with themselves and each other, it should have occurred to Steve that something would go wrong.
However, he could have never guessed that trouble would come in the form of the US Army deciding that, because Steve had signed himself over for Project Rebirth, he was technically still the property of the US Government.
I've been trying to find some nice sand boa enclosures. All the ones I find are shallow bins with m just substrate, a hide, and a water bowl. Which I don't think is enough (I have seen them climb a little! And explore new things in their cage!) I don't know where to look for better ones, besides google. Could you help?
I would love to! Sand boas seem to be growing in popularity lately, but as far as I know, they’re still pretty new in the reptile hobby. I’ll see what I can do. Thank you for the suggestion! It falls right in line with another request we just received too haha
Ugh, no but the whole thing about how home is not a place but rather a person, and then that moment before the final hug and Korra looking at Asami while talking about “no other place she’d rather be” and then leaning into her when the three of them hug. Be still my heart
Dark Water or 'it did something but probably not what it intended'
It’s pretty much impossible to judge this episode without the second part, so this isn’t a full review, just some things I liked and didn’t like. Let’s start with the ‘meh’s:
The speech in the beginning was awkward, I’m sorry. It’s better on re-watch, but I’m still not buying it.
Basically the entire “the emotional impact we’re supposed to feel after seeing their epic romance develop this season” is just non-existent I’m sorry.
That’s it that’s the bad things. Basically the entire Clara/Danny thing made me feel like Moffat was trying to shove that lovestory down my throat no matter what it took, and he didn’t succeed. It ruined an otherwise enjoyable episode with moments of complete and utter boredom that were supposedly intended to make me feel touched and sad ?
THE GOOD THINGS:
Volcano Day. Let me tell you about volcano day. Peter and Jenna were on fire, pun intended. I don’t even know where to start. I’ve rewatched it so many times. The anger, the heartbreak… That was raw. That was real.
Peter effing Capaldi. Jesus. Fucking. Christ. Over the course of this season, he’s basically never gone for the obvious choice, and never was it more apparent than here. The anger at Clara’s betrayal was good, but what happens after had me screaming at my TV. This nonchalant “Go on, do it” attitude that gets 500 times worse when you know he really was in full control the entire time… Damn son. I’m still a jittering mess it was brilliant. The way he acts after Clara breaks down is just. Don’t even look at me right now okay I’m still not over it. That’s the Doctor right there. That’s what makes this Doctor his, and he fully utilised that in the volcano scene.
Jenna Coleman. Don’t touch me. She cries, I cry. The moment Clara realises what she did and completely crumbles was the worst blow of the entire episode because it’s just so brilliantly done and justifies all her actions that lead up to this moment. You can basically touch her remorse and it’s so obvious that she was desperately trying to cling to a semblance of control after the terrible loss she suffered, and throwing the keys away was so destructive, so raw, none of it would have had an impact if she hadn’t fallen apart like that. Jenna slayed it. That was the one and only moment I could totally believe the depth of her loss despite not buying into the romance.
“Go to hell” – The way Clara just accepts it and is ready to walk away without arguing because she realises what she did was unforgivable. Everyone’s talking about how much the Doctor cares about her. What about Clara? That was such an important moment for them. (Also how she’s on the brink of falling apart again when she realises he’s not abandoning her despite what she tried to do)
The Doctor willing to go literally to hell to save a man he actively dislikes because he can’t stand to see Clara miserable.
“Do you think I care for you so little that betraying me would make a difference?” – That’s literally the only “I love you” of the episode I believe besides Danny’s at the very very end.
“Clara, I’m terribly sorry, but I’m exactly what you deserve” – Yes. The entire season was them playing off against and changing each other. Both of them doing things that make us go 'that’s not really a good idea don’t do that’ and I’m so happy they actually acknowledged that?? It was such an off-hand comment, but really think about it. The Doctor said that. He knows.
Missy’s kiss with the Doctor. Can you say non-con any louder? It fit perfectly with her character, and for once, it’s made clear that this is not okay. The Doctor himself has been going around groping people in past incarnations and it’s generally been shrugged off and laughed at, but here we have a forced kiss that looks like a forced kiss. It was brilliant. (I don’t know whose reaction is best: Clara’s or the Doctor’s)
The heart-touching more like kill me now that was brilliant. I was waiting the entire time for an explanation of his reaction to that and when it came I wasn’t disappointed.
Clara waiting for the Doctor to take her hand that was so sweet oh my god especially after Missy forced herself on him. Clara understands he’s not a fan of physical contact this time around, and he doesn’t mind and even seeks out her touch don’t even look at me.
“all this swearing” – Internalised anger? I hope they’re coming back to that, especially since the camera deliberately focused on Clara’s reaction to it.
Danny Pink as an actual person with an actual past. It only took an entire season, but we got there in the end. I think what he did was fairly obvious from the beginning, but the fact that it’s there at all probably means there’s gonna be things happening related to that?
The entire afterlife thing. I read it would be uncomfortable, and yes. Yes, it was so uncomfortable. That’s so far away from playing it safe, I was actively squirming at parts, and I loved every second of it.
Missy. All of it. Every second. There could not have been a better actress for the job, and I’m still screaming about the fact that we finally have a female Time Lady– who used to be a man!! (Who’ll be the next Doctor now, I wonder?)
STOP EVERYTHING WE HAVE TO LOOK AT MINAKO’S DESK DRAWER IN EXCRUCIATING DETAIL
Stationary, matching paper and envelope because of course. Surprisingly low-key for Minako, accented only by BLISTERING ORANGE. This is probably her serious stuff. I’m confident there’s another collection of stationary elsewhere with with approximately three lines left available to write on with all the cute animals and hearts and probably “FROM THE DESK OF AINO MINAKO” in 60 point font at the top.
A diary, ALSO with Minako’s name on it. Minako never grew out of that seven-year old phase where you had to tag everything as yours, did she. You know she’s given gifts to each of the girls, something they can wear, and hidden somewhere on each item is Minako’s name. They are hers too, yes. Minako has claimed this land for Minako.
In the diary, of course, is a carefully constructed narrative of the wistful yet inspired days of teenage Aino Minako, suitable for future publishing and/or selecting excerpts from for biographies and her inevitable career retrospective. The diaries with all the real stuff are hidden.
AN ACTUAL ARTEMIS KEYCHAIN MINAKO SHUT THE FUCK UP THAT’S ADORABLE
A little pouch of something.I’m not sure what might normally be kept in such a thing.Whatever was supposed to be in it, I’m getting the feeling that Minako’s replaced it with condoms. Not to use, just to HAVE.
(Minako being sent to her room to study. Minako giving up after three seconds and pulling out her pouch o’ condom. Minako opening one and seeing how far over her foot she can make it stretch.)
A little dish of what I think is candy. Doubtless still there from the last time Usagi was over and Minako hid it.
And a little pink book at the back with a cat on it, which I’m guessing is for appointments or addresses or something. Or maybe it’s Artemis’s book of important contact and research. Because white cat. Because what is subtlety. Did I mention Minako’s pouch of condoms?
Hi, so I was wondering what the difference between. Non-binary and agender was. I've looked into it but still don't fully understand. I don't really know what to call myself because I don't really feel fully female but I don't feel male. Does that make sense?
it does make sense, friend. this is a good question and i understand how, in all the pages and pages of info on blogs like ours, core ideas can get lost sometimes. but i’ll break it down for you.
i’ll give an example using labels for something you probably understand better: location. i’m from the US, so i call myself american. i’m from texas, which is inside the US, so i also call myself texan. there are many americans who are not texan, but there are no texans who aren’t american. does that make sense? in this example, “non-binary” would be like america. plenty of people can be non-binary, but not all of them have the same gender experience, it varies. “texas” in this example would be like agender. not all non-binary people are agender, but all agender people are non-binary. and consider other “states” like other genders. you can be non-binary and genderfluid, or non-binary and demigirl, because those are specific genders that fall within the non-binary label.
here’s some definitions to further clear things up
non-binary: a gender experience that is not 100% boy or 100% girl
agender: a lack of gender experience, having no gender, and this is also considered “not 100% boy or 100% girl”
