is that what its called now

dude I’m so worried for seb. he posted something on Instagram and in this sociopolitical climate and the pc culture, this will only do more harm and HIS PUBLICIST SHOULD CALL HIM NOW AND ASK HIM TO TAKE IT DOWN.

I’m not even American and I understand this is territory you shouldn’t even try to tread. It’s not worth it. Intentions don’t even matter it’s about how people receive it. SEB PLEASE BE WISE this is a PR disaster waiting to happen as a media student I’m just so annoyed

Lately I've been putting myself before everything - pulling away from toxic people and making myself happy before my friends. Because I used to prioritize anything but myself - in fact I wanted to die. I'm much happier now as I'm in school and saving money + I've been working out to keep that body lol. Anyway, someone I'm close to recently called me "very selfish" bc of this. I know my motivations (money/body/education) might be shallow do you think its wrong, what I'm doing? Honest opinion? ^^'

no you’re not selfish at all. you were putting others before yourself for so long and it made you unhappy. then you decided to prioritize yourself first (as you should) and now you’re much happier. you above all come first, no matter what. you can’t help others if you aren’t helping yourself first. that isn’t fair to you. it is totally fine to focus on yourself. idk why your “friend” would consider that selfish. maybe they feel unloved now that you are spending less time with them and they miss you but they expressed their feelings to you poorly. if you still wanna be friends with them maybe ask them what’s going on and why they said that? you have every right to put yourself first. for awhile i was stretching myself too thin helping others and i had to stop. so i can understand where you’re coming from. i hope what i said makes sense i’m really tired right now lol 💖

Black Hole Sculpts an Hourglass Galaxy

When it comes to galaxies, our home, the Milky Way, is rather neat and orderly. Other galaxies can be much more chaotic. For example, the Markarian 573 galaxy has a black hole at its center which is spewing beams of light in opposite directions, giving its inner regions more of an hourglass shape. 

Our scientists have long been fascinated by this unusual structure, seen above in optical light from the Hubble Space Telescope. Now their search has taken them deeper than ever — all the way into the super-sized black hole at the center of one galaxy.

So, what do we think is going on? When the black hole gobbles up matter, it releases a form of high-energy light called radiation (particularly in the form of X-rays), causing abnormal patterns in the flow of gas. 

Let’s take a closer look.

Meet Markarian 573, the galaxy at the center of this image from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, located about 240 million light-years away from Earth in the constellation Cetus. It’s the galaxy’s odd structure and the unusual motions of its components that inspire our scientists to study it.

As is the case with other so-called active galaxies, the ginormous black hole at the center of Markarian 573 likes to eat stuff. A thick ring of dust and gas accumulates around it, forming a doughnut. This ring only permits light to escape the black hole in two cone-shaped regions within the flat plane of the galaxy — and that’s what creates the hourglass, as shown in the illustration above.

Zooming out, we can see the two cones of emission (shown in gold in the animation above) spill into the galaxy’s spiral arms (blue). As the galaxy rotates, gas clouds in the arms sweep through this radiation, which makes them light up so our scientists can track their movements from Earth.

What happens next depends on how close the gas is to the black hole. Gas that’s about 2,500 light-years from the black hole picks up speed and streams outward (shown as darker red and blue arrows). Gas that’s farther from the black hole also becomes ionized, but is not driven away and continues its motion around the galaxy as before.

Here is an actual snapshot of the inner region of Markarian 573, combining X-ray data (blue) from our Chandra X-ray Observatory and radio observations (purple) from the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array in New Mexico with a visible light image (gold) from our Hubble Space Telescope. Given its strange appearance, we’re left to wonder: what other funky shapes might far-off galaxies take?

Okay but are you a Hamilton person or an Usnavi person? Non-Stop or 96000? 21 Chump Street or Freestyle Love Supreme? Long haired Lin or short haired Lin? “Whaaaaaat?” or “No Me Diga?!”

Partner and I have been rewatching The Two Towers for the first time in a long time.

anyway, one thing that has always been weird for me is Eomer giving Hasufel and Arod to random strangers, just like that.  Just giving them away, two horses, to a trio of foreign travelers he just met and had suspected of being spies.

like.  what?  This is Rohan.  Horses are the thing you value above all else, I don’t care if their riders are dead, even if their riders don’t have actual heirs somewhere to whom ownership would pass (or Rohirric inheritance law works differently and ownership has somehow defaulted to their éored’s commander, IDK), you’re still a calvary force planning to see a lot more battle in the near future, chances are high you’re going to end up with horseless riders who’ll need them.

this time I actually processed the fact, though, that Eomer believes they’ve inadvertantly killed two innocents, prisoners of the orcs, the beloved companions of these travelers.

The horses aren’t a gift.  They’re weregild.

Okay but for the final season I want it to be parallel to the first season like:
  • Like Pidge is messing with her tech or something and Hunk instead of him poking at her equipment he actually asks for permission
  • Lance and Hunk do some sneaking just like the one from the first episode at the garrison
  • They think Keith is dead from an explosion or something. At some point Lance starts laughing
    • “It’s Keith I see him!!”
    • “wait are you sure buddy?!?!”
    • “Yea i’d recognize that mullet anywhere”
  • Allura does some badass magic shit and she gets drained and falls into lance’s arms. Allura forgets where she is for a second and Lance says the same thing he did when they first met but now is crying and has a wobbly smile because holy shit it’s his found sister and he almost lost her.
  • Shiro and Keith have their brotherly talk and Shiro tells Keith not to worry because everything will be alright
    • something does happen and its actually shiro who’s freaking out and keith calmly tells him “Someone I look up to always tells me: Patience yields focus”
  • When they get back to Earth, Lance and Coran have a similar talk from the first season but instead of talking about what they miss about their homes, they talk about what they miss about space
    • they also talk about things to do now that they’re on Earth like going to the beach, seeing the rain, etc.
  • “They call me the Tailor because of how I thread the needle”
  • They’re all training and making the laser gun noises
  • BONDING MOMENT 2.0
  • Lance getting to see his family again and when he hugs his mom he just cries and whispers “I just really missed your hugs”
  • Garrison people are chasing them and they have the same scene with the hover bike
  • Keith looking at all the evidence he has in the shack and tells shiro how he could find him all because of it
  • Hunk and Shay stare at the sunset after the war ends
  • “Saviors of the universe….I like that” with the camera zooming out as they stare at the sunset on the beach.

(if any of you have anything else please add on!!)

Hizashi: ‘HEYYY CUSTOMER! What are you reading?’

Shouta: ‘…It’s called ‘don’t you have anything better to do?’ Its quite complex, you probably wouldn’t understand it.

Hizashi: ‘…Oh that soun- WAIT- HEY! That’s so mean, I made you a cute coffee too!’


More cafe AU stuff (it’s not from a fic, I just enjoy making up captions)

[I actually changed the cafe from the last au piece, I have a proper…floor plan and stuff now XD, I wanted it to feel more cosy and less like a chain cafe!]

A Really Cool Sword

I’m playing a kenku rogue named Grackle. My friend is playing a firbolg ranger named Maulie. Our party is currently fighting a huge, misshapen, undead Frankenstein-like creature.

Dm: as the monster turns to face Maulie, Grackle, you notice something shiny sticking out of its back.

Me: I call it! I want to jump from the tree I’m in to get onto its back and grab the shiny thing. (I roll very high for dexterity)

Dm: you effortlessly leap from your perch in the tree and land squarely on its back. Up close, you can see that there’s what looks like a silver sword handle protruding from a wound in its back.

Me: now I’ll use my action to pull it out I guess (rolls high enough on strength)

Dm: before the beast can realize what’s happening, you grab hold of the handle and pull as hard as you can, and you see in your hands you have a smoothly carved, silver colored shortsword with etchings along the blade of something written in Giant language, you can’t make it out but you can tell it has magical properties.

Maulie: (ooc) wait, I’m a firbolg, I can read giant, right?

Dm: oh, yeah you’re right, do you want to try reading it?

Me: (as Grackle) Yo Maulie, can you read this?

Maulie: yeah ok what’s it say?

Dm: uh, heh, ok Maulie, you can see that carved into the blade of this shortsword, written in Giant language, is the word “butterknife”

(We all start laughing)

Me: (as grackle) Maulie why’re you laughing? What does it say? Is it something cool?

Maulie: (in character, between bouts of laughter) it says Really Cool Sword

Improv CoC

So, we were playing a round of improv Call of Cthulu, so all the players and the dm would switch every fifteen minutes and there was no scenario planned before. We ended up at Loch Ness with some black blob.
DM1: so the thing move towards you. What do you do?
Player 1: I try to hit.
DM1: *doesn’t even bother to roll* Okay, it splits in two. Then it changes its shape to that of a penis.
*everyone laughs*
*the timer goes off, I am now the DM*
Me: Okay, so the… black penis moves away from you like this *tries to show them how, but they don’t listen cause they’re still busy with their new sheets and talking*
Me: Guys, listen look.
*still not listening*
Me: I AM THE PENIS
*suddenly they’re all listening*
