i'm not saying there are captions but there may be captions

What's this thing about jikook and special days in Korea? I've seen it mentioned but I've never seen it explained. If you've posted it before I'm sorry, I didn't see it. I'd be super grateful if you would link it. Thank you for all the answers!

Hey there! I think I’ve never done any in-depth explanation on this, nor have i seen anyone explain.Honestly speaking, I think I’m in no position to talk, as I’m not familiar w Korean culture, so I’ll try to link all the interactions between them on these days instead of explaining in details what these days are all about. Prob just a brief one. ^^

/cracks knuckles/ Here we go.

From what I read, apart from public holidays in Korea, there’s also a special day on the 14th of every month for couples/singles to celebrate. E.g there’s Pepero Day, Valentine’s Day, Diary Day etc.For some inexplicable reason, Jimin and Jungkook were together on these days, and I’m not saying this without a concrete basis, because it’s mostly proven by Jimin n Jungkook’s Twitter uploads,as though they wanted to scream to the world “look at us”

Let’s start from January.

January 14th- Diary Day where couples give diaries as gifts

Note that in this video, there’s only the two of them, or maybe another member, who didn’t want to be included, which is pretty unlikely since Jimin always includes others, even if its for 0.00001 sec. So my bet is, they’re the only ones in the car (apart from the manager/driver). Date? 14th January, at approximately 11:51 pm KST. Coincidence? Maybe, but that’s not all.

(Important: Today was when Seoul Music Awards took place. Let me give you a hint… Orange hair + blue suits + backhug + whisper in the ear…got it? Yep! Jungkook gave Jimin a back hug on stage in front of hundreds of ppl on this day. Amazing, right?)

February 14th- Valentine’s Day

The video was uploaded today at 9:06 pm, but they had gone out two days ago, on the 12th. My question is, why on the 14th? Notice that Jimin was filming Jungkook initially, before he panned out and included Jin? (his caption was bout Jin tho) If you were here, you would’ve prob seen some posts on Jin being the chaperone in Jikook’s dates.Some time later after this “date” Namjoon revealed that he once went to Han River with Jikook. Putting two and two together, doesn’t it make more sense?

March 14th-White Day where guys give gifts to their girls

This time around, Jeon Jungkook was the one who uploaded the video, 2 MINUTES before White Day ended (11;58 pm) Please, please look at the caption “Jiminie hyung is sleepy, somebody please tuck him in” and please appreciate the precious time he took just to edit this video. He’s obviously in love with his hyung  

Later, Jimin left two comments saying “It’s really shocking Jungkook-ah I told you not to upload it right #JIMIN“ and “This hyung will go back home real quick. Be aware #JIMIN “

Either he took it himself and sent it to jungkook or Jungkook recorded it and they’re together, both of which are completely fine with me.

May 5th-Children’s Day

On this day, Jimin posted not one but three videos, in which jungkook was included in TWO of them. I can’t link any more vid so here’s the tweets

JiminxJungkook 1

JiminxJungkook 2

May 14th–Yellow Day/Rose Day

No video from both of them, but they still had quite a no of moments today.They were all over each other, from Music Core (where Jungkook became the MC) to their fanmeeting. Jimin did tweet something about Jungkook mc-ing and ofc he had to include the two hashtags #jimin and #kkuk. No twitter update but still, what a wonderful day for both of them.

September 14th- A Day before Chuseok and Photo Day

I really truly find this mindblowing. Jimin posted a funny video and again, like many other times, Kook was in it. The caption was basically “Happy Korean Thanksgiving everyone” but wow…Photo day landed on the very same day. Now…coincidence again? I’m gonna be trash and say no, this thing has occurred too many times for it to be claimed a coincidental event.

Here’s the Chuseok Video

//Jimin’s birthday October 13th//

Not related to anything but it’s still considered special, right? Especially for Jikook. Today, Jimin posted a video of him and Kook. Like always, no one else besides Kook. Also, we got to witness this

a very very special day for jimin AND Jungkook indeed.

That’s all i think. Id like to apologize if I make any mistake in this post. Oh and before I forget there’s also April’s Fools Day where Jikook dedicated the whole twitter to themselves (and Yoon/seok too). What do you say about Jikook and special days? Suspicious? Fishy?intentional? Coincidence? I’ll leave it for you to conclude bc I believe you’d have known my respond to this by now ^^

I would like to wish you a Happy Happy New Year in advance! May 2017 be filled with positivity, happiness, success, and more Jikook!!!! <3<3<3

It’s this topic again.

I’m going to try to be civil about this, but this itself is a touchy topic in the arachnid community - handling tarantulas, to do it or not?

Fine, it’s a relatively docile tarantula like Grammostola pulchripes or Brachypelma albopisolum, and you’ve had it for years and you’ve made sure your spider is having a good day (aka not showing any defensive or threatening postures). You can handle that if you want to. I know some people would argue for no handling whatsoever, but as always individual spiders will have different personalities.

But there is a damn fine line between handling a New World tarantula (not including Psalmopoeus or Tapinauchenius species) versus an Old World tarantula.

I’ve already written my case HERE and HERE. I’d highly advise reading before adding any further comments.


(For those unfamiliar, New World = Western hemisphere, Old World = Eastern hemisphere)

I’ve been seeing a lot of videos and posts of people handling Old World tarantulas, or tarantulas of the Psalmopoeus and Tapinauchenius genera. Most have captions saying, “Do not try this! My own spider I can trust because I know their personality very well, etc. etc.” or “They just wandered out onto me when I opened the cage door, this doesn’t happen on an everyday basis”. That is somewhat better because these people are explaining what is going on, and are not ‘actively’ endorsing this sort of behavior. HOWEVER, there are places where these captions cannot be viewed OR the OP neglected to write one.

And this is bad - very bad for the arachnid community.


What’s even worse is that soon, if not already, some naive person might attempt to handle these tarantulas because “Hey, other people are doing it too!” and GET BITTEN. Or people will try it anyways for the ‘cool’ factor and get bitten (rightfully so).

People unfamiliar or afraid of spiders are going to use this against the community. And by all means we are PROVIDING them with more evidence of irresponsible behavior.


What happens when you finally get bitten by an Old World tarantula (or by a Psalmopoeus)?

  1. You stay at home and self-medicate, as the venom isn’t lethal but bad enough to make you feel really ill.
  2. You call the hospital (some people do this) because 1) IT HURTS and you’re scared (understandably) and/or 2) you’re having a bad reaction.
  3. The news may get out, and I can already hear the local news stations going NUTS over this.

Once the media gets a hold of YOUR careless mistake, they’re going to blow it out of proportions. YOU know this is what they’ll do, and no matter how much you’ll try to correct them or educate the masses on what really happened, they’re not going to give a shit. You know why? Because face it, a lot of people fear spiders. They don’t care if it was an accident - all they know is that SOMEONE got bit by a SPIDER, and one venomous enough to make you sick. THEY ARE GOING TO BE AFRAID. 

There are already regulations and restrictions in the United States. Some cities, like NYC, have banned keeping tarantulas entirely. Hawaii prohibits keeping tarantulas, and considers importation of tarantulas illegal. Other states, but not all, require permits in order to possess tarantulas.

I’m not going to be surprised if some day in the future the tarantula industry is gonna get SLAMMED. Careless handlers, keepers, and breeders will be the downfall of the industry, and if we aren’t going to be more careful about it lemme tell you this - we’ll be joining the reptile industry pretty damn soon if people can’t get their act together and be more responsible.

This isn’t the only thing that has been bothering me (e.g. illegal smuggling, release of captive tarantulas into the wild, profit over welfare, selling ‘advanced’ tarantulas to newbies WITHOUT EVEN TELLING THEM WHAT THEY ARE GETTING INTO, shitty husbandry, etc.), but it’s high on my list.

Luckily, most of my tarantulas will live 20+ years because - HAHA! - who knows what will happen in the future.

10 Things I'm Tired of Explaining to Hearing People

1.  I don’t like talking on the phone.  I repeat, I don’t like talking on the phone.  It has nothing to do with social anxiety, being an introvert, or trying to appear mysterious and technologically impaired to my peers.  I literally cannot understand a large percentage of what people say on the phone.  The only person I’ll answer for is my mother.  A thirty-second conversation can easily turn into an excruciating seven minutes of “I’m sorry, what?"  So stop calling me and stop asking me to call someone else.  I use the phone only when I’m desperate. 

2.  If it’s not captioned, I don’t want to watch it.  Too many times people have some funny video on their phone they want me to watch and each and every time I laugh and pretend to understand what’s going on.  Newsflash - I don’t.  I may pick up a word here and there and even get the gist of it, but the details are utterly wasted upon me.  So don’t bother unless it’s captioned or you’re going to sit there and tell me everything that’s being said.

3.  Turn that *bleep*ing music/tv down.  If we’re going to engage in an actual conversation that demands extreme listening on my behalf, turn off all the loud noises in the environment.  I’m not riding around the car with you with Lady Gaga or Kanye West blasting through the stereo.  It’s hard enough trying to tune out background noises like circulating air, loud car engines, heavy footsteps overhead, the microwave going off, Seinfeld, and all the clicks and squeaks in the room.  Have some consideration.

4.  Don’t whisper in my ear.  Just don’t.

5.  Look at me when you talk to me.  I swear to God, I burn the most calories walking up to someone to ask what s/he said.  Stop walking around the place and running your mouth.  It’s not just disrespectful to Hard of Hearing people, but all people in general.  Who do you think you are, roaming about expecting the world to just tune in to you?  You want me to listen?  Acknowledge me.  Turn around and face me when you talk.  That makes me feel like you actually give a damn.

6.  What I can’t hear is not your entertainment.  Don’t tease me, don’t test me, and don’t harass me about the things I can’t hear.  It’s not my fault that my brain and my ears don’t register certain sounds that are so easily heard by others.  It’s hard enough having to manage knowing I miss a large percentage of what goes on around me, but I don’t need you making me feel guilty or embarrassed.  Also, whistling behind me or making little noises to see if I’ll pick up on them?  That’s just a dick move.  Don’t be an asshole. 

7.  It’s not an accent and I’m not from a country you’ve never heard of.  I don’t even have the patience or comfort level to go into detail right now. 

8.  I’m not “Hearing Impaired” or “Deaf,” I am “Hard of Hearing.”  I have the right to identify myself however I want.  I’m not impaired because that implies a sense of brokenness.  I’m not broken.  I don’t need to be fixed.  And I’m not D/deaf.  Look into the difference but I’m not going to go into detail.  Some people embrace that title, others don’t for their own reasons.  Again, it’s their business, not yours.  I am Hard of Hearing.  I was born with sensorineural hearing loss.  I cannot hear certain sounds.  I have hearing loss.  Get it right or keep your mouth shut. 

9.  Maybe that person just didn’t hear you.  I’m living proof that people like me exist – people who do not experience the “normal” range of hearing that most people experience.  If I exist, then certainly others like me exist.  Stop treating me like the I’m the only one of my kind and start wrapping your head around the fact that if someone else seems to be ignoring you, it could just be that s/he didn’t hear you.  Don’t let your ignorance define your actions. 

10.  Getting hearing aids is a personal choice.It’s none of your business whether or not I wear hearing aids.  It’s not up to you to make that decision for me nor should you even express your opinion on me getting them unless you’re a loved one.  I don’t care about the latest technological advancements you’ve heard about and I don’t care if you think they’ll improve my life.  I will make the decision.  I will decide if I want them or not.  Hearing aids are not a cure all.  For some people they work and that’s great.  For others they do nothing but amplify sounds they can already hear to irritating frequencies.  And sometimes hearing aids just don’t do anything for some people.  They affect everyone differently.  We’re not all the same nor do we have the same range of loss.  What I choose to do with my ears are none of your business.

anonymous asked:

The captions for the trailer on the Punisher’s Facebook page have Karen saying “what if you’re exposed”, not “they’re”. Knowing that she’s addressing Frank how do you read that scene now?

Ah! Problems with not having a Facebook lmao. OKAY WELL WITH THAT I’m going to combine answers with this ask too then because I have the same thoughts with both:

Anonymous said: What did you think of the line: “so where does that end, Frank? What if you are exposed?” It sounds so much like Karen is worried about where he’s headed, what it will do to him, and that he may be hurt. That she doesn’t want to lose another person she cares about? What are your thoughts on that line and their discussion? I’m emotional.

In this scene she is incredibly worried and it is absolutely completely because of him. She’s freaking crying and throwing out the hard questions like pleas because it’s like the ill-fated forest and the hindsight with the diner the last time they had a heart-to-heart all rolled into one, and that’s heartbreaking because of what it means. It means Frank putting his life on the line, not caring about dying, putting everything he has (including his slivers of humanity that Karen believes in!) into his mission of vengeance. 

I think we’re going to see a BIG part of that being her fear of losing someone else too after TD because, by the looks of it, this is the scene set-up: he’s clean shaven, he has his purpose set (so he’s coming to her with it WOW), and Karen probably already knows everything in the preamble up to this (where he’s been, what he’s doing, what she’s helping him towards since they’re speaking so assuredly). Thus, it’s been a bit of time since they got back in contact. He was gone but now he’s back, he’s this intense and understanding and unique connection of hers that CAME BACK TOO, and of course she’ll want to help (will probably feel conflicted about it at least at first ofc but she’ll help because it’s him) and now, after all that, she could lose him again. She’s got Frank with wild haunted eyes in front of her again but this time this could REALLY BE IT. That’s essentially what he’s saying (late at night with the wind blowing and the romantic backdrop of the lit up bridge wtf Frank). He has the full story, he’s at the end of his quest when it comes to exactly who’s responsible, why the carousel massacre happened, and this is it. The time of payback.

Which I think is why Karen asks that – “where does it end, Frank?” It’s a valid question but I think she’s trying to pull him back with it too!! Because just where does it end? Does he care about living past this? Does it end with prison? Does it end with fading into the shadows and giving up on his own terms like she might’ve been afraid of before back in the forest? Does he continue the Punisher persona past this, but still, what does that mean for HIM? Just where is the end line – and for Karen, does knowing that change anything? That’s something for her to explore too. Does she attempt to change his mind, does she try to help him further, or does she prepare herself? 

But I think we all (and Karen) know by now that it’s impossible for her to prepare herself for losing him; it’s happened what three times now? And every time she’s at the mercy of her emotions and the two of those times she thought he was dead ends with her in tears struggling to not fall apart. Just like this scene….Coincidence? I think not.

YAY FOR ANGST.

samwinchesterlester  asked:

I'm looking to start a Skyrim tumblr, any suggestions on where to start, what to post, etc? It'd really help :)

I can see that change over…not too big a leap, eh?

Seriously, I am not qualified to give advice about tumblr, this is the only one I’ve ever made and I just did it on a lark. I kept seeing things as I played that cracked me up and wanted to share with somebody. None of my rl friends are gamers, (shocker…not that many girl gamers locally) so decided to show strangers. Plus it keeps the game fresh for me, because I have ulterior motive. If you just want to know my personal rules about how I run my own, I’ve got a couple, but I break them for fun occasionally. 

1. Try and blog/reblog shit that is either original, hasn’t made the rounds in a while, or is brand spanking new. When I look at skyrim on tumblr  I sort by new not most popular.
2. Play the game. Tons. And try out new mods. I’ve got 3165 hours of gameplay. This game didn’t stay fresh without mods.
3. Don’t sweat the haters. They will come and you must decide to ignore or confront them. I like a little initial confrontation, then blocking their asses.They act like I have some obligation not to offend them, and I don’t. I can say whatever the fuck I want. It’s called free speech. The fact is I do this for fun.  I post things I find funny. Sometimes other people find them funny, sometimes they don’t. But arguing with people isn’t something I particularly enjoy…so I don’t. 
4. I don’t worry about a schedule. If I’m free that day I may post a TON of stuff. If I’m busy I don’t bother… or worry about it…or even think about it. 
5. Credit where credit is due. Tumblr eats their own image captions for some reason, so I just stick captions on the images now. MS paint is my friend for quick captions.
6. I use tags for my personal use to flip through my own shit in addition to helping people find my stuff. 

I think my best advice for any type of tumblr is to have fun and enjoy it. If it stresses you - don’t bother. and when you stop having fun with it, delete it.
I have no idea if this is the kind of reply you wanted, but…lol….I had fun writing it, and isn’t that what counts?
