Hello, Maybe some of you know me, know half of me, or do not know me at all.
I’m not an attractive person, I’m not a pleasant person, I’m not someone who makes many people comfortable. More than that I often feel the least understood in you, at least among you, the worst of you, even the least of you.
Therefore, I love to read one by one from what the writing clause. To know, to understand, to feel. Especially for myself. How should I learn from ignorance, be curiosity, and how I should be for what I previously could not.
I think everybody is born into this world with their own uniqueness, therefore I do not participate in discriminating.
In the movie The Santa Clause, one becomes Santa by putting on the red coat after the death of the previous Santa. Even ignoring how morbid this premise is on its own, it’s possible that there’s another even darker level to the story. When Scott Calvin shows up at the North Pole as the new Santa, not only do the elves not appear surprised, they seem happy to see him and not at all upset about the Santa he replaced. And furthermore, at the very beginning of the movie, we see an elf standing with a crowd of children outside a toy store near Scott’s house. Why would she already be there if she didn’t have some sort of prior knowledge of what was going to occur? This leaves me no choice but to conclude that the elves not only hated the previous Santa but actually orchestrated his demise.
tl;dr: In The Santa Clause, the elves totally murdered the previous Santa.
Press X to give Nick a hug after Long Time Coming.
Honestly this part made me very emotional and I swear Bethesda needs to add HUGS to their dialogue options. Let me tell Nick everything’s gonna be okay and he has people who love HIM and not a ghost from the past.
This is not a repost. My old blog got deleted so I’m putting my art back up.
Hey guys, today we’re gonna talk about conditionals in Japanese. Conditionals are clauses and they often describe the result of something, such as “If A, then B.” In Japanese there are many conditionals and as a beginner it might be confusing trying to work out which one conditional is appropriate to use in a situation.
と - “When A, B”: This basically means that when/if A happens, B will happen as a consequence. You can use と in situations when the clause is in present tense - you can’t use it in a past-tense situation.
Rule = clause +と+ result
e.g. 早く行かないと、遅刻します。 If you don’t leave soon, you will be late.
ば - "If A, then B”: This is pretty easy to comprehend because it just means "If A happens, then B”. There aren’t any assumptions or embedded meanings in ば statements, they’re pretty straightforward. You can use ば in situations when the clause hasn’t happened yet (future tense).
Rule = clause +-えば+ result
verbs: change the U sound to an E sound and add ば (e.g. 食べるー食べれば)
い adj: drop the I sound and add ければ (e.g. 楽しいー楽しければ)
な adj and nouns: drop the NA sound and add であれば (e.g. 学生なー学生であれば)
e.g. 金持ちになれば、それを買います。 If I become rich, I will buy it.
たら - “If A, then B is possible”: This conditional is very similar to how you would use ば , but in order to use this conditional the clause has to be in past-tense (食べるー食べた). You can use たら in situations when you want to say what might happen if a nonexistent state came to be.
Rule = change the noun, adjective, or verb to its past tense form and add ら (e.g. 会う―会えたら）
e.g. お金があったら、旅行します。 I will travel when I have money.
なら - "If A, how about B”: This basically means that "if given a certain context, then this will happen”. This is a contextual clause and requires a context in order for it to be used, for example “If everybody’s going to the party, then I’ll go too”. You can use なら in situations where you’re recommending, requesting, or suggesting something, or drawing a conclusion based on the first clause.
Rule = clause + なら+ result
e.g. スーパーに行くのなら、ミルクを買ってきてください。 If you’re going to the store, please buy some milk.
Hey look I found the old Fallout 4 companion height chart I made and @mothtrap was nice enough to colour and detail.! Probably should update this with the new and none humanoid companions. These are not official heights, just headcanons.
This scene perfectly illustrates why I’m endlessly banging on about Dean not letting the crap define him and retaining his softer qualities. Dean shouldn’t have been given responsibility of his brother at such a young age. It was not okay. That’s a given. That’s not what I’m shouting about when I make gifs about Dean being caring or empathetic or embracing his nurturing side. This is what I’m shouting about. Dean didn’t have to come up with a hundred and one ways to make macaroni and cheese. He could have told Sam to can his complaints and just eat the damn food. But he was trying to make Sam happy. Just look at Dean’s face when he talks about how Sam found the fluffaroni exotic. That’s a good memory for him: making Sam that disgusting mac and cheese because obviously Sam was a fan. Sam freaking loved marshmallow fluff so much that his imaginary friend Sully brought him marshmallow nachos in 11.08.
Dean obviously liked making his little brother happy, when all that was expected of him was to keep Sam safe. There was no make Sammy happy clause from John. He came up with that part by himself.
The burden of taking care of Sam didn’t create the soft, nurturing part of Dean. But it didn’t take it away either, which is why I’m always yelling about soft Dean. He retained those qualities, despite all the crap he had to go through, and that’s what I love.
Landlord is jealous of my income, raises my rent $500. I screw him years later for $20k.
All names have been changed. Long story:
In the late ‘90s wife and I were just married, just getting started, and we decided to DINK (“double income, no kids”) it for a few years to save up for a down payment on a house.
The dotcom bubble was still rising and I was a newly minted software developer. I had an entry-level job for a while and then got recruited to a new city and a new job that paid 3x what I was making before. It was an offer too good to pass up. I ran the numbers and it was a no-brainer: by living frugally and saving my entire salary, living off just her income, we would easily have enough in a year to put 20% down payment on a new house.
We rented an apartment in the new city that was listed for $950/mo. The landlord was a real estate agent who owned a two-bedroom condo as an investment property. Let’s call him “Hank Wazowski”. Hank was a thin, gray, no-nonsense guy. He was pleasant enough, but perfunctory, dry, and had no sense of humor. He made a point of explaining that under no circumstances was he responsible for maintaining the garbage disposal and that it was NOT included in the rental agreement and he would not be responsible for fixing it were it to break. Um, ok.
What? Have you ever met a LESS ambitious person? He could do literally anything he wanted to the world. He could start or end wars. He could restructure the government. He could end hunger and poverty. He could appoint himself king of everything. And what does he do? He skips lines and makes people tell him their secrets!
