if it's not someone correct me please

so we all know how teru stands in his well know “pigeon toed” stance  

(credit to wiki)

tbh i just always thought it was cute and just like his thing??

however before i started crying about caesar i noticed caesar from jojos bizarre adventure fought the same way!!

knees bent and shit you know. 

now looking further into it i found out this was an actual stance in martial arts!! from what ive learned its called the sanchin dachi stance! apparently its to help the fighter stay grounded 

some examples

(this captures it pretty well lmao..)

now i dont know shit about martial arts so please correct me if im wrong but i thought it was cool to know why teru had a reason to fight like that and not just be dorky.

Tips..

So im not a vet sb or anything but ive been reading blogs and looking into the bowl for a few years off and on. Most recently ive decided to actually give it a shot but i did extensive research and read countless stories both bad and good from all sex workers. From what i gather there are a few BASIC things everyone looking into this business need to know and understand. Correct me if im wrong and you are reading this please.

1: NEVER get into a car or go anywhere with a guy you are meeting for the first time or two. Take a cab, uber, train, bus and have him pay for it if its more then $15.(Thats just my preference do what you want sis)

2: Carry a form of protection i dont give a hell if its a fork bitch carry something to protect yourself hide it under your wig if you have to.

3: Tell someone you trust family, friend, tumblr sisters, leave a detailed note at home about who you are  meeting, where, what time, and his information. If something were to happen to you the police/family will know where to start. Delete/trash it when you get home of course.

4: ALWAYS get your money before any sexual acts. For some its before they even have dinner on the first date/meeting. Its really up to you and what you prefer.

5: NEVER spend your own money with hopes of being reimbursed. The reason you got into this line of work was so that you didnt have to spend your own money sis, use your head.

6: Trust your gut, i dont care if his ass is worth a trillion dollars nothings more important then your safety. These men dont give a fuck about you at the end of the day everyones out for self in this game so be about your money first and all that other bs later.

This is one of the only Papyton blogs I can tolerate. One that goes beyond wild sex and creates a chemistry between the two. But I was wondering, what about Mad Dummy? I always saw their human form as a punk girl, so... what do you think?

1.) Thanks for tolerating my blog :D

2.) Someone please correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think Mad Dummy’s gender was specified in the game (?) Until then I made them agender. Also:

I’m sure at least two of ya’ll are thinking, But Random, they’re acting so calmly, what dafuq?” Yeah no, that’s only them in a good mood. I promise 9/10 times its usually like:

The Blook family really care about each other…

evangelionunitkenway  asked:

Okay, this is weird, and can you make this public, please? Are you telling me this. Mages become Tranquil and it is when you lose your powers or something/ Or its when a mage dies in the fade, and they become like... well zombies? (correct me if I'm wrong). Cassandra is a seeker, which from what I understand was someone who was made tranquil and it was reversed, which gives them other abilities. So basically Cassandra is an ex-mage? Am I understanding this right?

“If I felt pain, it is meaningless to me now. Once I knew only fear, but now I know only service. Whatever pain there was, I believe it an acceptable trade.”

Tranquil aren’t really “zombies”- they don’t want to hurt anyone and have self-preservation and a desire to be “useful”. When mages become Tranquil, they lose access to the Fade, leaving them emotionless. They retain awareness of their past selves and the world around them, but they cannot feel anything about either. The Tranquil process everything logically and still have preferences.

If a mage dies in the Fade (like Feynriel can in DA2), he wakes up Tranquil. If that’s how the Rite of Tranquility works, it hasn’t been officially confirmed as yet; we haven’t seen a defined description of that process anywhere.

Cassandra has abilities, but they are different than a mage’s- she never had an innate ability to cast magic in the first place.  Her abilities are more in-line with a Templar’s, but she doesn’t need lyrium.  Bioware hasn’t really elaborated on this point, but Cassandra is proof that non-mages can be made Tranquil as well.  It seems to be that if a non-mage uses lyrium or is briefly made Tranquil in the manner Cassandra was (the Seeker’s Vigil), they gain some magical abilities, but are not classified as mages. This distinction is likely due to the fact that Templars and Seekers did not naturally manifest their powers like mages.

Neither of us has read Asunder (despite the quote at the top of this post - thank you, Dragon Age wiki), so maybe someone who has can say more about the mage whose Tranquility was reversed.  They had some issues re-adjusting to their non-Tranquil state, which Cassandra mentions to Solas in a banter that unlocks after completing her personal quest.

  • Cassandra: Solas, I assume you know it’s possible to reverse the Rite of Tranquility.
  • Solas: I did hear of what you learned, yes.
  • Cassandra: I know of only one mage thus cured, and… he had no control of his emotions. He was distraught.
  • Cassandra: Do you think that would have passed? If the Tranquil are cured only to end up thus…
  • Solas: They would be a danger to themselves and others, yes.
  • Solas: It is difficult to say. In your Vigil, you were Tranquil for but a moment. They have suffered much longer.
  • Solas: Such control is like a muscle, atrophying without use. Given time it might be restored, but until then…
  • Cassandra: That may be a risk we are obligated to undertake.
  • Solas: They will be grateful… even the ones who do not survive.

It’s hard to say whether the mages who were willingly made Tranquil would agree. Tranquil are less desirable targets for demonic possession, though they are not immune. But the Tranquil who were unwilling? They’re a different story.

(Translation of the message with Ayato, Touka, and Yomo. Please feel free to send me a message for any corrections!)

The children who were meant to be born, died. The vision of the future convulses.

Someone declared that they’ll crush only half of the broad bean.
The gene is in a severe bipolar state.
The nucleic acid sequence having no recollection of its own actions.

All of the fingers that were supposed to be connected from start to end, are scattered around; it’s annoying.

If you look closely at the knot, you can see that it can be surprisingly easy to untie.

I was always asked to keep the switch.
Go forward.
Go back.
Stop.

I can hear my voice from the mouth.
That voice gave me a feeling of discomfort and it had become extremely disgusting but, no one noticed that and everyone was under the impression that it was indeed, my voice.

Sin is irresponsible. I’m getting tired of being forgiven.
My shoulders have even forgotten about my legs.

I open the door with the side of my arm.

The path that I should’ve advanced in is gone and darkness pulled onto the horizon that lay right beneath it.

“Come on, come on! Come on, come on!”

Go forward.
Go back.
Stop.

I can hear my voice from the bones.

“Did you know that our voice is the mixed voices from dad and mom? No wonder it’s so disgusting.”

I pinched my nose and jumped down without a pause. Just like how a child would when jumping into a pool.

Even the never-stopping rain,
even the never-breaking night,
even the never-ending agony.

It’s surely there, it’s just that it wasn’t there until now.

Falling down, falling down.
It’s as if right has become left.

And on the brink of collision, I recall Björk’s song,

Q+A For ConcertTeamup

Hello everyone! I hope some of this clear things up. I understand some are a little confused on how this all works! Remember I am always here if you have any questions or concerns, please send them through messages or on ask! Lots of to you all! x


Q:   “Is this legit?”

A: Yes, I want this all to be as safe as possible for fans. We don’t scam and we don’t lie.


Q: “I’m selling a ticket, how do I do this?”

A: You have already done what you need to do! All I need to know is that you have one (or more) available for purchase! I will then find you someone to match with, as soon as possible. 


Q: “How do I send a request or submission for a ticket/s?”

A: Simple! Send them through ask or messaging! Both are available and open. Submitting makes it a little difficult to answer you directly though.


Q: “What should I send for the request for tickets?”

A: Just tell me what show you are wanting to attend to, and how many tickets you need, also if you need a specific ticket. It is nice to know your age, your name also how much you are offering but that is totally optional for you to tell me.


Q: “How do I get ‘Matched’” 

A: Simple, pretty much once I find a ticket, and if you are chosen. I tell you who you have been matched with. I will also then tell you that you should contact each other for how you want it all to be arranged. I don’t want to intrude on your details so I leave the communication aspect to be completely up to you two.


Q: “I have been matched and am talking to the seller/buyer and we need help”

A: I am always here to help you guys in any way that I can.


Q: “I have been matched but i’m getting a strange vibe”

A: I’m very sorry to hear that. We want this to be as safe and easy as possible. If you for some reason feel that there is something shady coming from your seller/buyer, please let us know immediately. I will ask you to share what you think might be happening. I will then talk to the two of you to sort it out. It will then be asked to the seller for proof by photo and/or video of the ticket/s. If you still feel that there may be more going on, I will gladly find you someone else that you feel safer with. Although, there is a very slight chance that you will be scammed, as I talk to all of you before you are matched and make sure that you have good intentions. 


Q: “I already have tickets, I just don’t want to go alone”

A: That is totally understandable, and congrats on getting tickets! I will try and find someone to match you with as soon as possible so you have someone to attend the show with. 


Q: “How do I pay once I have been matched?”

A: I leave this up to the two of you to decide as people have different requirements. Although I know you can send the payment through Ticketmaster, Paypal, Bank Transfers, etc. But again the decision is totally up to and what works best for you and your seller/buyer. Im always here if you need any assistance. 


Q: “How do I send the tickets to the buyer?”

A: As of right at this moment, nobody has their physical tickets as its only been about 36 hours since tickets sold out. But in the future you are able to connect with each other on Ticketmaster to transfer tickets, without any costs and also safely. You can also mail tickets as an option, but we all know that shipping physical items may get lost in delivery. Again this is totally up to the buyer/seller, which ever method works best for the two of you is important. Im always here for help.


Q: “I have been matched, and have successfully gotten my tickets, but I no longer need them”

A: Thats totally fine! I will find someone for you to match with! You now take on the role as a seller. 


Q: “I have been matched to a seller, but I don’t need the ticket/s anymore”

A: Sorry to hear that! We will then find someone else for the ticket/s”


Q: “Will you let us know if you have any available?”

A: Yes of course! As soon as I have some available, you will all be notified. I recommend turning our posts notifications on. You can do this by going on my home page and selecting the person shaped icon in the right corner, once selected there should be a “Get Notifications” button. Click that. There will then be a lightning bolt next to the icon to confirm. I am always here for help if you are confused. 


A: “Can I be added to the ___ list”

Q: Yes, although there is no waiting list. Once I let you guys know that there is a ticket available, I will also tell you a specific word (Example: “Green”, “Pink”, “Sweet Creature”) Send me the word that I ask for that is linked to that ticket, and you will be added to a list that will help me randomly draw one of you for the ticket. I want it to be as fair as possible. If you guys prefer a waiting list, please let me know. I want all of you to get a chance. 


Q: “How do I get chosen for tickets, is there something I can do”

A: Demand for tickets is very high at the moment. Send me a request, and also keep on the look out for my posts. I don’t choose for who I think deserves it more, I think you all deserve a chance and a ticket. I don’t single people out if they believe in specific ‘ships’ or if they just created a blog that day. We all support the same person/people and I think thats very important, so no at this moment there is no special way to get a ticket. In the future there may be a list, but no I want this to be as fair as possible. If you disagree or have another opinion, please let me know again I want what works best for all of you! 


Q: “I didn’t get any tickets the last time you had some available”

A: Don’t give up, there will be more to come. It’s only been two days and I have already been able to match people. Just keep your eyes peeled on my account. 


Q: “How much time do people have to be entered on to the list for the  ______ show?”

A: After I notify you all that I have a ticket available. Im giving you all 12 hours to send me the specific word. Please keep in mind that may change depending on if the seller will allow this much time. 


Q: “You didn’t reply, was I not on the list?”

A: If you sent me the word in the correct time, you would have been on the list. If I don’t answer its because I have quite a few messages, but don’t worry nobody is going unnoticed. I see all. 


Q: “Do you have the ticket physically”

A: No, I dont. A direct you to someone who does and is safe/reliable. 
Think of me as a manager. 


Q: “If you manage to get tickets, will the name change to yours?”

A: No, I don’t think the name will change. As far as I’m aware the person who first bought the ticket will have their name on it. 


Q: “Where exactly are you getting the tickets from”

A: Either someone has come to me saying they have some for sale, or I look for them myself through other platforms. 


Q: “For example, if I was able to get a ticket to the Sydney show with your help, will there be a problem when I show them the ticket at the venue…? Because I heard several people saying that they may not let you in if it doesn’t have your name on it or something like that?”

A: From what I’ve heard is that its different for every place. Some people will only be allowed access if the person who originally bought the tickets is there with ID for proof. This is where we get the name ‘concertTeamUp’. So if someone is selling a ticket the buyer can tag along with the person who has their name on the ticket. This way you will be “Teaming Up” and going to the show together. Although some places also don’t need for the person who originally bought the ticket with their name on it to be there. I would suggest calling and/or emailing the venue that you are planning to go to. We would hate for someone to get a ticket but not be allowed access. Let us know if you do contact the venues, we can then make a post about the guidelines for each place, if you guys wish. 


Q: “If I am matched but I don’t respond right away, will it be given away to someone else?” 

A: No. I will wait for your response. If you don’t need the ticket anymore I will give it to someone else though. 


Q: I sent a message but Im not sure you got it, you didn’t reply.”

A: Most cases I have seen it, I just haven’t had the chance to reply. I will get back to you as soon as I can. Again, I didn’t realize my blog would be noticed as much as it is. So don’t panic, I do see all.


Q: “I’m still confused”

A: Thats totally okay! Message me and I will try my best to help you understand! 


Q: “Are you selling two tickets at a time to one person?”

A: I understand people need more than one ticket, so I will try my best for you. If I have two available and you are chosen, you may be in luck.


Q: “Will you tell us details about the ticket?”

A: Normally I will tell you the amount of tickets, the place and the price. Its up to the seller on how much information is to be posted. 


Q: “Are trades available?”

A: Yes! Absolutely!


Q: “I don’t have very many places to share your blog.”

A: That is totally fine! You are not obligated to share my blog. This also does not effect your chances of being chosen for a ticket. 


Q: “Where should I share your blog?”

A: It’s completely up to you! Twitter is a good way, but honestly any form of sharing is good and very appreciated! Please don’t feel pressured though.


Q: “Are there groups of people that I can tag along with?”

A: Yes! I can find you a match! Also feel free to try and start one! Let me know if you do! 


Q: “I know people looking for and buying tickets, should I tell them about you!”

A: Its up to you! It will definitely help though!


Q: “What cities have you sold to?”

A: I may be wrong but from what I remember its been, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Singapore, and New York. 


Q: ”Are you only selling tickets to certain cities?”

A: Whatever tickets for whatever shows find there way over here they will be posted. Im selling for all shows. 


Q: “If you have already sold a ticket for a show, will that be the only one?”

A: No, when more come they will be posted no matter how many times its been sold before on here.


Again I am trying my absolute best for all of you! I want this to be a place where we can connect to one another as fans. Thank you for submitting and also for paying attention. It truly does mean a lot, fingers crossed that I get you your ticket/s!

I hope this clears up some things! Again, please know Im always available for anything. These were the most asked questions, so If more come at a high rate I could make a Part 2. Also I apologize for the length of this post, I hope it helps though! x


Much love to you all, x

Batboys With a Tall S/O

Request from anon: Wow could I have headcanons of the boys with a tall so…..I’m like taller then all of them (6'1 ish, or so)
I’m 5/11 so could you please do headcanons for the bat boys with a tall S/O as well

AN: I don’t know the struggles of being tall so if this is inaccurate me please correct me.  Also thanks to anons and @bon-travail98 for helping

Jason

  • We can all agree that Jaybird is mostly the tallest batboy
  • He doesn’t really think its a problem that you’re tall.  He kinda thinks it’s cute
  • Even if you’re tall Jason still feels the need to protect you
  • Kisses are cute between you two
  • He lifts you up even though you’re basically the same height
  • Sometimes you get looks for already being so tall and it makes you self conscious
  • If Jason hears that someone is making comments about you height they better be ready to catch those hands
  • One time someone said “Wow you’re tall for a girl.”
  • You bet Jason did something
  • His name is, Jason Catch These Hands Todd
  • He’s just always makes sure that people don’t talk about you cause he thinks you’re the living embodiment of a goddess and everyone should see it too
Dick
  • This boy will worship you and your height
  • Like you feeling insecure, oh there goes Dick worshipping you and explaining why he loves it
  • Someone asks about you being tall, there’s Dick defending you and making you feel better
  • You don’t wear heels so you’re not taller than him
  • He doesn’t understand why it matters that you’re taller
  • So then he goes out and buys you heels even if he knows you wouldn’t wear them
  • He just wants you to be confident
  • Plus it wouldn’t bother him if you were taller
  • But like the cuddling is real
  • Sometimes you two flip the roles of big/small spoon
  • It really just matters on who’s feeling what
Tim
  • You’re either taller than him or about the same height
  • It’s not just you who’s insecure in the relationship
  • Tim’s one of the “shortest” out of the batboys.  And his S/O is taller
  • So when he feels insecure you always cuddle and wrap yourself around him
  • Mostly that makes him feel better
  • You’re the person who’s always getting stuff out of the top shelf
  • Poor Timmers is an armrest.  Not that he minds
  • Cuddling involves you being the big spoon most of the time
  • Sometimes you pick him up to mock him.  He’s fine with it
  • Did I mention that you’re the big spoon?
Damian
  • Oh man Damian.  My smol child
  • People really got on you for dating him
  • Even your friends said that he was too short
  • To you, the difference is something that REALLY makes you insecure
  • Damian being Damian, he never really noticed how tall you were until someone pointed it out
  • And then it made you feel bad
  • Which made Damian fight them
  • He kinda thought you were his height?
  • He insists on being the big spoon and you let him
  • But man oh man does he get taller
  • When you’re older you don’t feel as bad about your height
  • Then you’re like the same height
  • He’s still the big spoon though

Just started watching Digimon for the first time recently, and my partner requested that I draw our Current Favorite Kids, AKA “Precious Perfect Final Fantasy Princess” and “Stressed Sassy Responsible Child”. You can’t make me choose between them, I refuse.

Hmm… But are either of these the “““correct”““ Favorite Kid? Has the fandom already declared some other kid is the Best Kid? Am I doing Digimon wrong?

Well, whatever. I don’t care. These kids are the best kids, in my heart.

Now someone please give these poor ten-year-olds some food and beds, oh my god

anonymous asked:

How did you start your fish tank? I'd ;like to start one up myself but I have no idea where to start... Any tips or pointers?

Hello there anon! Thank you for the ask :DD

I’ve got tons of tips and pointers for ya :3 Below I’ll explain the basics of fishkeeping, the stuff that generally applies to all freshwater fish tanks like the basic supplies you’ll need to gather and explain the nitrogen cycle! (I’m not sure about saltwater stuff, though, as I haven’t gotten into that part of the hobby…yet ;p) The species you want to keep will dictate the specifics of your tank, beyond the basics, though, so keep that in mind going forward! :)


The Basic Supplies:
- Tank
- Filter
- Heater/Chiller (if required)
- Thermometer
- Substrate (optional)
- Décor/Hides
- Water Test Kit

Tanks:
Choose a tank that is sufficient in size for the species you plan on keeping! Long tanks are almost always better than tall tanks, as fish swim side-to-side and not up-and-down :) If this is your first ever fish tank, I’d start out with a fish tank no smaller than 5 or 10 gallons, if not larger! Larger volumes of water hold a stable cycle more easily! :)

Filtration:
There are three main types of filtration: mechanical/physical, biological, and chemical. Mechanical filtration is what filters out particles from the water, large or small. Biological filtration refers to the nitrifying bacteria that perform the nitrogen cycle! Chemical filtration is filtration that helps to take certain chemicals out of the water.

Types of Filters:
- Hang-On-Back (HOB) filters hang on the lip of the tank. They have a ‘media basket’ where the filter media goes (usually cartridges). If you buy a filter that requires filter cartridges, I recommend replacing those with a ceramic media, sponge media, or both since you’ll have to replace the cartridge eventually and that can disrupt your cycle. Fluval AquaClear filters are a great HOB filter for larger tanks, and come with sponge (physical, biological filtration), ceramic (biological filtration), and carbon media (chemical filtration)!

- Sponge filters are great for fish and other aquatic animals that prefer (or require) low-flow! These filters are basically blocks of sponge hooked up to an air pump. The air pump forces air up through the sponge, creating a vacuum that sucks up particles (mechanical filtration) and water (biological filtration). The air is forced out the top of the sponge, creating bubbles that agitate the surface, aiding in gas exchange!

-Canister filters are like HOB filters on steroids. Instead of a ‘media basket’ you get a literal ‘media bucket’ (biological, chemical, mechanical filtration). A canister filter (also called an external filter) is placed somewhere outside the tank, and doesn’t hang on the lip like a HOB does. Its great if you don’t want to see your filter or if you need a ton of filtration for a larger tank :p Mini canister filters also exist, if you’d like one for a smaller tank :)

- Undergravel Filters are something I’ve heard pretty mixed reviews about, and I’ve never personally used one. They’re usually grated, plastic, thin hollow block filters that you put under the substrate of your aquarium (I believe gravel works best with these filters, as I assume using sand or another small-particle substrate would fall into the filter? someone please correct me if I’m wrong .-.). They may provide enough surface area for nitrifying bacteria (biological filtration) if you have a very small bioload, or if you could fill them with some type of media…these are probably the most painful to clean, though, since you’d have to take apart your entire tank…

Heaters & Chillers:
Your fish may require a heater or chiller! If they do, its for good reason. Fish are ectothermic (like reptiles), meaning that they rely on their environment to help them regulate body temperature. (Humans like you and me are endothermic, meaning that we can produce our own body heat/regulate our body’s temperature.)

A fish that is too cold will become lethargic, stressed, and may refuse to eat. Temperature affects bodily processes as well, such as digestion, circulation, and metabolism regulation. Temperatures that are colder will slow down these bodily processes and warmer temperatures will usually do the opposite. Because improper temperature is stressful for any fish, they will experience a suppressed immune system as well, and will be more susceptible to illnesses as a result :/
Some fish require heaters/higher temperatures to function properly (Bettas, tetras, other tropical fish). Some fish require no heater, or the addition of chiller, to function properly (goldfish, minnows, danios).

As a general rule of thumb, heaters should be 5-10 watts per gallon. Adjustable heaters are always more reliable than non-adjustable heaters. Adjustable heaters also usually have thermostats, so they turn on and off automatically to ensure that the aquarium’s temperature stays constant(ish). Usually you don’t need a chiller unless you’re keeping a temperate- or cold-water species and where you live it doesn’t get below the high 70s all year.

Thermometer:
Yes it’s necessary! You need to be able to monitor what temperature your tank is, whether you have a heater, chiller, or neither :) Even if you have an adjustable heater with a thermostat, it may not be accurate to +/-1 degree. Avoid those strip-sticker thermometers. They’re not very accurate :/ You can buy glass ones at Walmart for about 1.50$ though! :p

Substrate:
There are lots of different substrates to choose from! Gravel, sand, plant substrate (like fluorite), or no substrate at all! Some substrates are ‘inert’ (don’t affect pH or other parameters) some substrates are ‘active’ (affect pH or other parameters). Some aquatic species have a very specific range of pH/KH/GH, like shrimp, and may require substrates that help you achieve that range of values. Some species require certain substrates for their health and safety, like corydoras, which require sand (or barebottom) as gravel and other rough substrates can cut up their tummies or injure their barbels. If the species you keep doesn’t require any special substrate, then choose whatever substrate you like best! It’s your tank! Have fun with it! :)


Décor:
One of the funnest (idc if funnest isn’t a word *3*) part of setting up an aquarium is decorating it!! Some fish have delicate fins (like bettas) that require either live or silk (material, non-plastic) plants and décor devoid of sharp edges. Hides are also important. Providing adequate caves and cover for your fish to hide in/feel safe in/explore is the functional aspect of décor. Make sure you’re meeting your animal’s needs :) Other than making sure that your décor is safe and functional for the creatures you plan to keep, go full ham!! Crazy color gravel with wacky colors and glow in the dark caves or an aquascaped, planted tank with driftwood and rocks! :D


Water Test Kit:
In order for you to maintain the health of your fish, you’ll need to know what your water parameters are :) You should at least test for Ammonia, Nitrites, Nitrates, and pH. You may need to test for other things like copper, KH, or GH depending on the species you’re keeping. A liquid test kit (like the API Freshwater Master Kit) is easy to read and very accurate :) (plus you get to use test tubes n stuff…like the lil fish scientist you are *3*)


The Nitrogen Cycle!

*ALL* fish (yes that includes bettas…and all animals for that matter) produce waste. Because all aquatic animals produce waste, they require (biological) filtration of some sort to process that waste.

Fish produce waste in the form of ammonia. Ammonia is toxic above 0ppm (parts per million). So you’ve got all this ammonia floating around in the water, right? and you’ve got water running through your filter…so these bacteria start growing all over your fish tank, wherever there’s water flow, but we want to concentrate on the bacteria that are growing in your filter media. This bacteria will be processing the waste that your fish or aquatic animal produces :)

So your fish produced some waste, and it’s floating around in the water as ammonia. The first bacteria (#1) that grows will ‘eat’ the ammonia and then ‘poop’ out nitrites.

Nitrites are also toxic to aquatic animals above 0ppm though :/ so then another bactiera (#2) grows and it ‘eats’ these nitrites that are floating around in the water and ‘poops’ out nitrates.

Nitrates are safe for fish (up to 20ppm)! :D Since there’s no bacteria that’s going to grow to eat these nitrates that are in the water, we have to physically remove them by doing a water change. A helpful post about water changes, how they work, and why they’re important:
https://hella-free-space.tumblr.com/post/160931725969/whats-the-rule-for-water-changes-like-ive-seen

If you have live plants, they will use some of the ammonia, nitrite, and/or nitrates in the water as nutrients :) Some plants will use more than others, as some plants are heavy root feeders, some are floaters, and some prefer to be somewhere in the water column. (note: live plants SHOULD NOT totally replace water changes! water changes are still necessary even for planted tanks :3)

To recap:
Fish waste (ammonia) -> bacteria #1 -> nitrite -> bacteria #2 -> nitrate -> water change


If you have any other questions, Anon, please send me a message or another ask!! :)

If anyone would like to add onto this, or if corrections need to be made, please reblog/comment/let me know! :)

The big flaw with Compatibility!!

I decided since I came back from my break, I would work on my content for my website and stop posting here. I am going to stop with the expectation of this because I feel like it’s specific to Tumblr. The reason I needed to take a break is that I have a lot going on in my personal life and at the same time I need a break. I love astrology passionately and intensely but sometimes its frustrating when you see people being misled. I don’t mean to sound like I’m attacking and I don’t want to explain in great detail through text as to why I think it’s so important for me to correct this stuff. 

First of all please remember that if you’re going to someone for synastry or advice on who’s “best for you”, be very very particular on who you go to if you’re going to take it seriously. And if you’re giving advice as a blogger, be accurate. It doesn’t matter how common a pairing is based off information or people on tumblr because leaving people who believe in astrology, there’s over 7 billion people in the world. It doesn’t make sense to go from a small amount of less than 20,000. In statistics thats called a small sampling size, and in my opinion it is small because we’re generalizing a point. It’s also densely biased when we talk about pairings, find someone who isn’t biased. You can’t take what you’ve experienced and make that set in stone for people who share a sign with you. 

For instance sextile pairings are not the best pairings. They aren’t dynamic or erotic in an emotional or physical sense. A lot of people ask about zodiac sign pairings leaving the whole charts alone and just focusing on the Sun. They aren’t the worst but they aren’t the best, in fact the sextile in general isn’t a major aspect on its own. They’re just extremely glamorized. Soo…. Taurus x Cancer, Capricorn x Scorpio, Leo x Libra, Aries x Gemini isn’t the best or the most breathtaking. It’s heavily glamorized, even between the signs but it isn’t true. If planets could rule relationships between aspects, I’d make Neptune rule this. I have nothing against sextile pairings but I hate seeing people misinformed. You can’t take a couple relationships or your own and label the whole thing, don’t be biased. 

You can’t tell someone who makes a great pair for them just because of an experience(s) you have. For instance if we theoretically could equally divide the world population by all 12 zodiac sign, you can’t be the spokesperson for all of them. Every chart is so specific and individualized, even your Sun, Moon, and Venus don’t tell you all you need in a relationship or who you should be with.I can’t go up to another Taurus and start praising that all Cancers are such and such for us (good or bad). If I met 5 Cancers, they’d all be different. All the relationships would be different. 

I decided to make this as a little guide that if you’re refining your understanding of astrology or learning you can use this. This isn’t everything but its major components I want to focus on. 

The Most Compatible while being Blissful, Sweet, and Fulfilling

Trine relationships (same element pairings). You can see capability of Dyanamic and erotic emotional/physical/mental dynamic growth when looking at the individual charts. Not just placements******

The Most Compatible while being Dynamic, Binding, and  Erotic 

The sister/opposite signs. You can see the rest of the “story” with the two individual charts. Keep in mind sister signs are a lot more similar than you think, they have small differences in them which BETWEEN THEM seem significant because its something they lack.

The Least Compatible but Attracting and Dynamic. 

Square relationships. Remember to look at the individual charts to get the whole picture. Doesn’t mean it’s the least it cant work. 

**********       Remember each pair has potential to grow       ***********

Please always make sure that the people you go to for advice, or if you’re a blogger, that what your learning from is credible. It doesn’t mean that it’s on the internet it’s right. If you’re serious about astrology, go to the right people and even do your own research. I love people who take astrology seriously and passionately so you can always connect with me. The reason why I find so much importance in making it accurate is that we’re the next generation to hold astrology, and we don’t want to teach it wrong to the next generations. 

@cornerbackcastiel

From what I understand and I believe this is correct, someone please correct me if I’m wrong… the original order is:

Bad Boys
Dog Dean Afternoon
Heaven Can’t Wait
Rock and a Hard Place

Which makes more sense re: Destiel. Setting up the precedent of Dean choosing Sam over a love interest before hand and regretting the adios immediately afterwards (and of course sleeping with Suzy as a role playing super macho reinstating of his facade, although we still get it after Heaven Cant Wait in the final order, it’s not as obvious as being RIGHT afterwards).

But also re: Sam reading the Wizard of Oz book in Bad Boys as it comes right after Slumber Party… so I’m pretty sure it’s correct.

anonymous asked:

Did you see MM's twitter account? She disappeared from IG, but she became Sam's biggest fangirl on twitter, she liked almost all of his tweets in the last month. I wonder if it's her way to claim him

Actually…she only liked nine of his tweets between May 6 - June 6 (yes, I counted). That’s not ALL his tweets, as he’s a prolific tweeter. She didn’t like his tennis selfie, or any of the banter he sent to his lovely co-star either. 

If I remember correctly, this is new. She didn’t like many of his tweets before (am I wrong? someone please correct me if I am). 

“Liking” something on a person’s SM is the least amount of affection you can show for that person. No, seriously. It requires zero effort or commitment and can be undone in a second. It’s a weak-ass receipt. All it shows, IMO, is that she read the tweet. That’s it. 

While we’re on SM likes, where’s Sam? He never likes any of her posts where she’s dressed up. That would be a nice gesture, right? He only likes pics of hers that don’t really involve her, and tweets that also aren’t really about her. That too is evidence that he read the post. He knows fans watch his every move on SM. Those likes and lack of likes are deliberate. He didn’t and doesn’t want to send the wrong message ; )

Okay but what I wanna know is:

Why haven’t I seen anyone on tumblr talking about this? This happened in June, so why is everyone still arguing about ages?????

If Lance is 19, then Keith and Hunk are also 19 because they were in the same class. If anything maybe one of them is 18. 

Please stop???


By the way: I have some very fucking special words for people who claim the podcast isn’t official and “we don’t know who runs it”. Go home.

Hi! Sorry for asking but why did people call jun greasy?

Hello there. ^^ Don’t worry, it’s okay! Also, I’d like to apologize for my long answer (╥_╥)

I will try my best to explain this well.

I discovered SVT during their Mansae promotions, and since then, I have always noticed that some people call or label Junhui as “greasy”. I feel like it all started  in this video. You can see Junhui dancing or grinding (sorry idk if it’s the correct term) to the host. And I have to admit, it’s quite greasy. And as I got deeper into the diamond life, there are times that Junhui says things or replies to post its with rather questionable answers. Like when a fan asked him who’s the most perverted in the group, and he answered he is the most perverted. As time goes by, his label as “greasy” or “f***boy” intensified. However, as a die-hard hardcore Junhui stan, I never–as far as I can remember–recall a time when Junhui was acting greasy around the members (someone please correct me if I’m wrong). His seemingly “greasyness” do not even reflect his shy, humble, gentle, and kind personality at all.

And then fast forward, some started calling Junhui ‘pervert’—personally, I think it’s even worse than the term greasy—because of some mistranslations of Junhui’s post-its. (This matter has been resolved by the way, and the translator already apologized for the mistake^^) It caused an uproar among Chinese Junhui stans on Twitter. Sadly, only the Chinese fans can actually understand everything that Junhui said/replied. According to them, Junhui just used some urban terms that do not exist in other languages, and that he only responded in an amusing or entertaining way. I also believe it’s just his way to make the fans laugh. It reached the knowledge of Junhui’s most popular fansite so far, The Innocence. Master-nim and all the other Chinese fans all stated that Junhui was just making silly Chinese jokes that can’t be translated directly into English.

I hope everyone who don’t stan Junhui will just take a little time to observe him and also to not take his jokes seriously. He is far from greasy and is a very kind and supportive hyung to the younger members. He is so kind, always the last one to leave the stage during fansigns, and always stays at the back to give the other members more screen time. 。゚ヽ(゚´Д`)ノ゚。

Lastly, I hope this helped and I didn’t confuse you. ●﹏●

Ok but..,,,.,,if the voltron s3 trailer was leaked.,,,.,,when it wasn’t supposed to be released.,,,.dont?fucking?spread?it? Like it’s that simple?? Idc about any of this “delete at midnight!!1!1!!” garbage; it was not a legitimate release, you shouldn’t spread or post it period.

anonymous asked:

Hello! I wanna ask you about the throwback edited video of the SACRED JIKOOK VLive (surely you know which one). Why in the world would Vlive post a throwback 1-year-ago video of that particular Live? And not other videos. I think it's the only one so far??? (Correct me if I'm wrong) I was so jungshooked when I saw it uploaded. Is someone working with VLive a Jikook trash??Sorry it's not recent but I really wanna let it out to someone ☆*:.。. o(≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆ Please spazz with me XD

SACRED JIKOOK VLIVE. lmao. and i immediately know what you’re talking about and should probably call it that from now on because it pretty much is sacred. 

Yeah, to be honest, I don’t know. I think the video with the most hearts is the one with Taehyung in Jungkook’s hotel room where he was “naked”…well, the ones most of you guys know as the HOTEL ROOM SCANDAL VIDEO but. we don’t talk about that here (heh), so that would’ve been made sense to be reposted just in terms of popularity but… who knows?

Again, I have been told Kookmin is a popular ship in Korea, possibly one of the most popular BTS ships (????? who knows anymore lbr) so it may have something to do with that too.

Or I just hacked into the system and made it that way but I’m definitely not that good…or am I?   ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)  (⌐□_□)

And also, not to be cynical of everything but…wasn’t that video taken down for a bit and reuploaded for whatever reason? Or was that just a rumour. I vaguely remember people being mad about the lost heart counts but I may have dreamt that all up. All I know is, I had a friggen hard time looking for video for the longest time and now, it’s just being reuploaded. Please, VLive please >.>

anonymous asked:

I have a question, what does "chaser" mean in regards to the comic about trans people? Thank you! (Please let me know I worded anything wrong too)

So there is not at exact definition, but from my understanding (and if i’m wrong someone please correct me) its a person who is attracted to trans women in a fetishizing way. They get creepy and obsessive and tend to harass trans women.

But basically all they are are people who fetishize trans people..

anonymous asked:

ok... that video you reblogged with the person rubbing a dick on their vagina/dick?? i really dont want to be rude or ignorant but what? Can you guys explain it is it like from surgery or am I an idiot Im confused

No problem, I was confused too!! But I had a friend explain it to me! What happens is that for some people, when they take Testosterone, their body can have the reaction of beginning to grow a dick. The clit is technically a dick, just unformed when we’re babies because our body decided that our sex would be female. So, its not unusual for someone’s clit to start growing and forming into a dick when they take T hormones. 

This dick is completely useless, however. You can’t use it to pee, or to come, but I would guess it might still bring pleasure since the clitoris is known to bring pleasure :)

I hope this helps, and If I’m wrong, please feel free to correct me!
