i'm unsure of what to tag this as

anti rant

Okay I really hate antis. I can understand disliking a ship, yes, but going as for to make a blog because you are so angry at a fictional couple?? Usually the ship discourse starts with an anti. You make an account solely based on hatred and are questioning why people are not siding with you?? I’m just going to say this now. Telling someone to kill themselves is different than saying you don’t like what they ship. Not to mention childish. If you’re really going to be doing anything helpful wouldn’t you rather stay away from discourse. I hate tumblr because of all these self proclaimed “SJW”’s who do quite literally the opposite of “social justice”. Calling people out and calling them human trash is not justice. I feel like this website is nothing but an overreactive bomb. Something passes through the system that is slightly flawed and you people nit pick at it like vultures, making a mountain out of an molehill.

Just listen here

I could like murder movies but completely despise the idea of murders

Just because you ship something doesn’t mean your okay with the ideology behind it, it’s called fiction people.

Greetings, Colleagues;

As some of you may know, this week’s Iron Banner is - improbably - Mayhem Clash. We feel that this is an opportune occasion to bring you another Mothyards Live Streaming Event.  We will be assembling a crack team of elite Guardians to cause mayhem in the Crucible, and we invite you to follow along through the heat of battle on our Twitch Channel tomorrow, 5/10 at 6PM MST/ 8PM EST.

In order to keep things interesting, we will be running a number of challenges along the route to victory, including (but not limited to) randomized loadouts, punishment games, equip-the-drop, Iron Banner Bingo, and anything else that we or our viewers can think of. We hope you’ll take the time to join us.

Do you like…. go out of your way to get attention and stuff because you need it to live, but once you get it and someone attempts to make it a normal thing you start getting paranoid and questioning why they’re being nice to you?

Like??? Thank you for the attention and validation but I’m terrified and unsure on how to deal with it so I’m going to lash out for no particular reason because I don’t understand what I’m supposed to do.

I came up with a name! it gets called Tilde.. I’m unsure on if it is able to speak yet, but their hands are incredibly expressive. their body appears to be a vessel, one that isn’t always in use. when they move, although they appear flimsy they’re actually quite solid. I’m considering that it may be kind of a guardian, protective figure whos often left to its own devices. 6 hands is their average but they’re able to have any number of them

6&149 Got7 Mark?

Drabble Challenge in less than 700 words!

6; “I just like proving you wrong.” , 149; “I just need ten minutes.”

Mark Tuan, a quiet guy who had a strong presence; your frenemy.

Mark had always been competitive, and when it came to you, he was always doing his best to beat you.

It seemed like there was always some kind of tension between the pair of you, especially through high school. Some people assumed you two actually hated each other, others thought you two liked each other.

You two didn’t really mind what others thought, all that was on your mind was grades and postions. The pair of you had been thrown into the same activities growing up, and when you got to college, you two ended up in the exact same classes.

Mark didn’t let the college parties phase him, he still kept at studying and trying his best to ace all his tests so he didn’t lose out to you; you did the exact same. Though sometimes, his friends would drag him out to parties before he died in a pile of his books.

One night you were dragged out to a random sorority party, were standing in a corner, drinking with your friends. You hadn’t noticed Mark was in attendance until he became the centre of attention while playing beer pong.

Somehow Mark had been nailing all his throws, and his friend Bambam had downed all the beer that was in his cups. Of course, everyone started cheering for Mark, but it did eventually die down.

While in the kitchen looking for more drinks, you bumped into Mark, who had a smug look on his face.

“You saw that right?”

You just shrugged, continuing your search for soda.

“Oh come on, you have to admit it was cool, no?”

It was times like this when you wanted to punch Mark in his perfect little face but you sighed and got your head out of the fridge.

“I didn’t know your nerdy ass had that in you.” You tell him, shooting him a sweet smile.

“Really?” He asked, one eyebrow raised.

“Yes really Mark. Now if you don’t mind…”

You continued searching for your drink, not noticing Mark standing right by you, trying hard to not stare at your ass.

“I just need ten minutes.” He states, still staring at you dig through the fridge.

“For what?” You questioned, finally pulling out a can of soda.

“I just like proving you wrong.” He answered simply.  

You shrugged and nodded, taking a gulp from your can.

In the blink of an eye, Mark had gotten you in a room, pinned against the wall, your soda discarded on the night stand.

“So what, you just assumed I’m a nerd?” He questioned, his face mere inches away from yours.

You could say you were confused, because on one hand you didn’t know how you ended up in that position, but you were also unsure of what the tingling of your stomach meant.

Mark just looked at you, observed you.

It was silent for a while, as silent as it could be with a full blown party happening downstairs.

“I’ll show you.”

INTP Mistakes

INTP: *High energy and having a good day.*

ESFP: Hey! INTP, I know you aren’t exactly the social type, but we are having a happy hour this weekend and I though I’d at least TRY to invite you.

INTP: You know what? I think I’m up for it! I’ll go!

ESFP: Wow, that’s unexpected. Well, great! I’ll see you later.

That weekend

INTP: *In the middle of a sea of dancing drunk people* Hour four: I have nearly emptied the entire punch bowl. I am unsure of what I’ll do after that. Things are not looking good. I leave all my organs and money to science.

anonymous asked:

Anon who ask the questions: for NH and ST, I mainly aask if you were Kishi would you pair everyone off or particular pairings. Yeah with my questions I sent I mainly wanted to ask how would your version of a rightful ending would be and if you were left with no choice but to acknowledge the ending how would you have changed it to keep it decent enough so the readers would have been content or not regret investing. I read your writing, so I felt that you would do some justice in 700+.

You asked a similar question in another ask but I’ll just answer it here!

If I were Kishi would I have paired everyone? No. take Sai as an example, I don’t think someone like him could/should end up with anyone. I’m not saying he doesn’t deserve love, he definitely does but he’s just incapable of romantic love.

If it were up to me there would be no pairings at all, because that’s not the point of Naruto. I think Kishi should’ve left that up to the readers and fic writers.

If I were left with no choice but to acknowledge the ending how would I have changed it to keep it decent enough so the readers would have been content or not regret investing?

So in other words how to make NH and SS less shitty and forced? Lets see… let’s start with SS.

What Kishi could have done is blame Sasuke’s evil on Orochimaru’s curse. That he wanted to kill Sakura because it influenced his mind. That he never wanted to hurt them but was not in control of his actions or emotions. That way it’d be acceptable of him to be with Sakura. He would come back to Konoha and try to get to know Naruto and Sakura again. He could then develop genuine feelings for the rosette and ask her out on a proper date. They could then talk about each other and get to know each other on a more personal level (for example if Sasuke actually worse glasses at some point). And when they get married he wouldn’t just knock her up and leave. He would help her through her pregnancy and he’d be there for their child. When he has to leave to search the world, he would write all the time and check up on Sakura and Sarada every now and then. ^ something kinda like that.

As for NH, Naruto could’ve realised his feelings in a different more natural way. It seemed forced. If it were up to me, after the war, he’d find Hinata, he’d thank her for always supporting him but he’ll admit to her he never quite thought of her in a romantic sense because that’s just the truth. That he is unsure what romance even is. But that he’s willing to try and get to know her that way. And then they’d start dating like any two normal people. They’d get to know each other personally and then Naruto could naturally develop feelings for her over the years. And when he’s Hokage, he’d make sure to still spend time with his children because believe it or not they ARE a part of the village he loves and deserves his attention just as much. Naruto grew up lonely and without a parent’s love and care. He’d never do that to his own kids. He’d be supportive and present throughout their lives.

^ that’s how I would’ve done it if canon had to happen. And thank you! I’m glad you like my writings, I’m hoping to improve even more. 😁💖

inkblottedsoul  asked:

So I read your tags on the "calculus" thing about Leibniz or Newton, and wasn't Archimedes also hugely involved? Like, I know he was killed before he could finish it and I'm unsure if his work was actually used later as far as it went, but I think I remember my teacher saying he was one of the first.

Ok, it’s time for a bit of a trip, because people always say shit like “Newton invented calculus” or they swap out Leibniz, and MAYBE, sometimes they’ll mention Archimedes.  Science, including math, doesn’t work that way.  It’s incremental.  The bits and pieces of what we now call “calculus” were developed over a LONG period of time by many different people.

So before we begin, calculus is the study of a thing called a “limit” which is a way of doing infinitely many things.  There’s two main parts of calculus: differential calculus, which uses limits to talk about rates of change, and integral calculus, which uses limits to talk about areas and volumes.

Ok, now, to Archimedes.  He developed what was called the “method of exhaustion.”  You want to know how much area is in a circle? First, fit a triangle inside the circle.  You can figure out it’s area.  Then a square.  Then a pentagon, and take the number of sides bigger and bigger, and the more you have, the closer it is to being the whole circle.  In modern terms, you compute those areas, and then you take the limit as the number of sides goes to infinity, and BAM, area of a circle (which is also a way to calculate pi, and there’s fun history there, too)

Now, we jump a thousand or so years, because Archimedes got stabbed and, frankly, people had to figure out polynomials, modular arithmetic, and geometry a bit more before the next part of calculus was really popular.  We come back to the story with Descartes.  He said “We can describe the plane by pairs of numbers!” and it was AMAZING.  Suddenly, geometry was freed from Euclid and was dominated by numbers.

So what’s the first thing you do in that case? You try to compute the lengths of some shit.  Like spirals, parabolas, etc.  Descartes came up with some tricks, but he declared that no one would be able to do it for cubics, WAY too hard.  Never ever.

So of course, not long after he died, Fermat did it.  Fermat figured out how to compute the rates of change (slopes of tangent lines) for any curve that was defined by polynomials.  Any at all.  And how to use that to figure out the length, though some lengths couldn’t be computed cleanly, he could still calculate them pretty damn well.

This is actually about 60-70% of what you need to get through a calc course.  All thanks to Fermat, who often gets no credit for it.

So then, a BUNCH of people start working on area inside of curves, and Isaac Barrow (Newton’s teacher) figures out that rates of change and areas are closely related: there’s a thing called the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus that is the details, and it’s REALLY important.  But of course, he can only do things for polynomials, really.

And now Newton comes along, and he systematizes it, and says “Well, not all functions are polynomials…OR ARE THEY?!” and declares that all functions are just polynomials with infinitely many terms, and you can just treat them the same way.  Neither of these statements is true, but they’re not the worst things you could say.  So now, Newton could handle all the functions that show up in classical physics…and BOOM, physics revolution, though he hides the calculus for various reasons.

Leibniz, possibly unaware of how Newton got his results, figures out how to do things more generally, treating functions as just things, not as big polynomials.  He developed the product rule (also called the Leibniz rule) and his notation was WAAAAAY better, and then, the shit hit the fan when Newton found out.

It’s one of the nastiest academic disputes ever (take into account that Newton was basically a supervillain and in charge of England’s money supply), but it’s a bit off topic.

So, we’re now at about 80-90% of a calc course, and the rest was filled in by the other European mathematicians and physicists of the time, with a LOT of work replicated in England and on the Continent because of this dispute.  We tend to remember the Brits, because, well, we’re Americans, but also because Britain was getting more powerful at the time.  So we have Maclaurin and Taylor who cleaned up the “infinite polynomial” business standing out particularly.

The Continent had its revent in the 19th century, when people found out “Oh, shit, these proofs, they all have holes in them” and it was Cauchy (French) and Weierstrass (German) among others who fixed it all up.

So, hope you enjoyed this lesson in history of math, next, ask me about the Jewish woman who made her father (who was one of the great 19th century mathematicians) a completely forgotten name whose work is often attributed to her by accident, and who completely revolutionized our understanding of physics, and who is, honestly, one of my favorite historical people ever (bonus point if you know who it is)

Masahiko frowned, unsure of what was wrong but a stab of sympathy shot through his heart anyway. He could relate to freaking out like that, only he didn’t scratch, per say; he scalded himself in the shower, scrubbing himself raw in an attempt to feel clean. He never did, but minds and brains were always a little weird that way, right?

“You aren’t fine,” Masahiko stated plainly, offering his hands to the other boy, “If you feel comfortable enough to do it, hold my hands. It’s not nothing, but we’ll just talk it out, okay?”

“It’s not fine right now, but it will be…”

Chibi Ace with longer hair <3 ~(^u^~) 

You know what? Tell me your OTPs or just favorite characters.

I’m dead tired from work but whatever. You want want your OTPs or fave characters scribbled be it good or bad? Go for it. 

The one and only rule is that I have to know the show/comic/other. If you’re unsure if I do you can try to search the tag in my blog. That’s all really! ;)

hello! I'm just getting into mythology and trying to find reliable sources to read from, and i found you! I thought I'd ask, since you sound like you know what you're talking about, what books would you recommend to learn best from? it doesn't have to be for beginners or anything, just what you find the most accurate. I find that most books have mixed reviews, so I've been unsure about what to read. if you could specify type with the book that would be helpful. (i.e; greek, roman, ect) thanks! ♡

Hello hello hi! Basically anything under the /book rec tag on my main blog, to be honest: http://teashoesandhair.tumblr.com/tagged/book%20rec

For someone just getting into mythology, I generally recommend that they check out a few secondary sources (ie retellings / compilations) before they tackle the primary ones (ie the original sources), purely because I find it helps to already have a good grounding in the actual narratives before you view them more critically. You’re totes OK to bypass that completely and just dive right in, though - I’ve included some primary sources below, just in case!

But my general recommendations are that Robert Graves’ The Greek Myths (edit because, as per usual, I have Maurice on the brain and put ‘Rupert’. Awks) is the best secondary source / compilation, The Golden Bough is the best critical / comparative literature text, and then Theogony (Hesiod), The Library of Greek Mythology (Pseudo-Apollodorus) and Metamorphoses (Ovid) are the most comprehensive and entertaining of the classical sources! Those are all in the Greco-Roman category, except for The Golden Bough, which is basically EVERY category (it’s also incredibly heavy going, so I don’t recommend it as a beginner text; more as one to keep on your bookshelf for when you’re ready - try Graves’ book first because it’s more user friendly, tbh!)

Another good range of books for you to check out would be anything from the Pantheon Library, which is a genuinely well-researched and accessible collection of myths, folktales and fairytales from around the entire globe. They aren’t primary sources; more compilations of various works, and they’re not always as well cited as I’d like, but there’s nothing to stop you from using them as groundwork to build upon, especially if you’re just getting into mythology now. I started with similar books as a child (only less mature, obvs - Enid Blyton all the way) and I think that secondary sources, being somewhat more accessible, are possibly the best route in. A+, would recommend.

Other books I can recommend:

  • The Prose Edda
  • The Poetic Edda (both Norse, and both very accessible, so I can recommend them for a beginner even though they’re primary sources)
  • The Mabinogion (Welsh - go for a more modern translation, like the one by Sioned Davies. Welsh mythology is the shit, yo)
  • The Iliad / The Odyssey (Greek - both are just bloody riotous good reads, tbh! I recommend the Fagles translation)

And then Penguin Classics / Oxford World Classics both have an extensive range of compilations of world mythology, from Egyptian to various Indigenous American tribes to Irish - the Penguin series are my personal faves because I tend to find the introductions are a bit more thorough, which I like. 

I think that’s probably a good list for someone just getting into mythology! Come back to me when you have inevitably devoured that list, being the bloody genius bb that you clearly are, and I shall provide a list of follow-up books. Good luck!!

what is going on, on the official panic! page??? I'm so confused

ok ok ……. what we got so far… is panic posting this weird ass cryptic message post

the roman numerals stand for 9 22, 9/22 is also the day they’re playing on conan o’brien it’s unsure if theyre gonna do anything with that, like theyre connected…

panic also changed their twitter and insta stuff to match

this is like some fall out boy or twenty one pilots level shit i swear these bands are getting more cryptic by the day

they tagged #noah schnapp who plays will byers in Stranger Things, and he obviously seems to be in on the situation aswell

it appears? to be him in the chair? i honestly have no fucking clue whats going on..if it was. Just a music video. It would be kind of weird to have them ask you to join something??

i dunno man

supermatt001  asked:

So wait I'm confused. Because in that "Do I dress gay?" two panel thing, you listen gay, bisexual, and pansexual in the tags. Which are you? No judgment, just pure curiosity (which I'm surprised hasn't killed me yet)

The reason I never stated my sexuality outright is because I just don’t know. Does anyone visit my About Page or FAQ? Lmao this is what I have listed:

The only thing I do know is that I’m not straight. That’s it.  

It’s funny because when I was younger and I would hear about people being unsure about their own sexuality I thought it was silly. Like, how do you not know something about yourself? No one knows you more than yourself. AND YET HERE I AM
