it freaked us all out

What if a lot of alien species didn’t actually evolve as pack species, and just adapted to living in communities out of necessity? So they can still work and live together, but they don’t have all the little instincts humans have that help them work in a group.

And they are freaked out by us.

We all wear the same clothes. It’s not a uniform— we just somehow all seem to like roughly the same outfits. We fit in so naturally with the people around us that you can use a human’s clothing to tell what country and what time period they are from. Aliens have no idea how we know what clothes are appropriate— they end up having to hire humans to act as fashion consultants after several incidents where diplomats showed up wearing mismatched clothes from various time periods and countries and looking totally ridiculous.

And what about yawning? Aliens who work on human ships say they never fully get used to hearing one human yawn and then having the whole room start yawning along with them. Or telling a joke to one human and seeing humans who say they don’t find the joke that funny cracking up anyway because “their laugh is so infectious!” It’s a common practical joke to tell new nonhuman crew members about this horrible disease humans get, where they feel tired and have an uncontrollable urge to open their mouths. It’s deadly, they say, and very contagious.

New safety procedures have to be worked out for the humans because, on the one hand, you don’t have to go around telling each individual to leave. Humans will just follow the mob. On the other hand, though, you have to be careful not to spread panic, because if one human runs, they all will, and they’ll trample anyone who isn’t fast enough to stay ahead.

Aliens hear humans tell their kids not to give into peer pressure and just get really confused. “Why would they do it if they don’t want to?”

“Because their friends are telling them to do it!”

“But why do it just because they’re telling them to do it?”

“Because they’re their friends!”

“What does that have to do with anything?”


When aliens see earth movies about people being indoctrinated or turned into zombies, it takes them a while to realise that these are horror movies because, from their perspective, that’s just what humans are like.

Friendly reminder that Percy Jackson tries his best to follow the rules, while Annabeth Chase just breaks them

anonymous asked:

this might be weird to ask n i hope it makes sense but........ how does each member of bts speak? like when their speaking do they speak intelligently, are they well spoken or like do they use alot of slang or anything? does that make sense i hope it does asdfgh

edit: this should be added sooner but DO NOT REPOST THIS & TRANSLATE INTO ANY LANGUAGE. i’m not a native speaker, this is purely personal observation. don’t consider these as facts.

🍫 namjoon:
• he chooses words very carefully and wisely, wide range of vocabulary
• if you see something that looks like it’s quoted from a poem or a novel, it’s namjoon’s
• uses calm tone when speaking in normal circumstances, but tends to raise and distort his voice when under adrenaline rush (eg. bts gayo track 3, acting mission with yoongi)

🍗 seokjin:
• varying talking speed, he can either talk really slowly or talk so fast that even 0.5x speed can’t help decipher what he’s saying
• focuses on emotions rather than words, so middle-ranged vocabulary?
• come across some lame puns? it’s seokjin’s
• but tbh i love seokjin’s puns even though sometimes it’s really lame that i have to consider turning off the video
• imo, 2nd best english pronunciation in bts, after namjoon
• also i love how seokjin pronounce the ㅅ and ㅂ syllables
• speaks like a middle-aged man…

🐕 yoongi:
• imagine namjoon but with less philosophical elements and more emotional explosion
• not the easiest to understand due to his low and raspy voice
• talks fast, so occasionally his words seem to stuck together and it’s nearly impossible to understand what he’s saying
• usually stretches the ㅔ in 네, like instead of a short 네, he would make it sound like 네에에에에↘
• might not be related but i still find the way yoongi said ‘boy meets what’ in ‘wings’ preview show really cute. it didn’t sound like ‘what’, but rather ‘waaaaaaaat’

🌻 hoseok:
• uses 되게 (really) and 뭔가 (somewhat) A LOT
• likes to insert 네 in mid sentence
• how should i describe his tone? it varies 100% of times
• has a distinctive way of pronouncing ‘fun’
• in short, the opposite polar of yoongi

🍑 taehyung:
• doesn’t finish his sentences, and often stares into the air after stopping midway
• uses adverbs like 약간, 조금, 진짜 separately and repeatedly, has the habit of saying adverbs first, then continue with his sentences and repeat those adverbs again
• splits one straight sentence into short phrases
eg.
- proper sentence: i was gonna meet armys right after i took a shower.
- taehyung: i, now, took a shower and ddak, gonna meet armys, ddak, like this.
• uses ‘like this’ and demonstrates with actions instead of describing the actions with words
• tends to use slangs, but not a lot as far as i can remember?
• not related to talking but taehyung often makes strange noises out of the blue, eg. he imitated a pigeon and made that ‘pokato’ (?) sound when namjoon said ‘pigeon’ and ‘pikachu’ in ‘wings’ preview show
• forgot this but taehyung’s english pronunciation is so on point

🍙 jimin:
• soft and sweet tone, is sweetly sassy
• always talks to armys as if he’s with his friends
• when doing a v app broadcast alone, he talks informally like how friends talk to each other, but when sending messages or some other ‘official’ occasions, jimin talks formally
• personal preference but i find jimin’s accidental satoori very cute… remember how he said 너 왜 이렇게 떠노 and took taehyung’s hands ;-;

🐰 jungkook:
• jungkook is like 30% satoori and 70% seoul dialect to me, so it sounds new when he speaks entirely in seoul dialect (jin’s puma cf)
• raises voice at certain random words like 인형 (‘the show’ interview), 악어(bon voyage ep 7), 인증샷 (chuseok v app), etc. they sound like 인~↗형~↗, 악~↗어~, 인~↗증~↗샷↗
• speaks formally
• says ‘mom!’ habitually
• tbh i don’t really pay attention to how jungkook speaks because most of the times i’m distracted by his bunny smile

ME WATCHING ANYTHING OTHER THAN SUPERNATURAL WHERE THERE IS A ROMANTIC STORY:

Okay but remember

All of us Starco shippers were freaking out over Marco tearing up and almost crying after he thought he had lost Star during the episode Mewberty….

And now,

Marco thinks that he’s lost Star again so what does he do?

He PUNCHES THROUGH THE FLESH of Toffee, the monster who he thinks killed her, because he is so heartbroken.

If that isn’t some major Starco development I don’t know what is

Here’s a horrifying thought:

Cutter: I’m going to kill you if you don’t co-operate.

Eiffel: You can’t kill me or you’ll never find out what the aliens said.

Cutter: We don’t need to worry about that.

Cutter: *shoves Eiffel into Hilbert’s brain-copying machine*

I decided that for my own sanity this is what I’m gonna hold into for the next four months. Despite everything they want us to believe and despite what they want us to forget I believe in what I see and THIS look screams LOVE, this is a look of pure adoration, and he only has looked at ONE person this way aka the LOVE of his life.

I keep getting a feeling that dan and phil are up to something yet at the same time… they’re not doing anything at all and just sat at their laptops together on the sofa watching us all freak out over them not doing anything even though we think they are. then laughing over it

Yall get me?

introducing me

my name is ashleigh. I am 20 years old and from New Jersey. I am currently studying marine biology at the University of Maine. I first saw Taylor 5 years ago during red release week in new york city. She was performing on good morning america and me and my friend Sophia skipped school that day to camp out in the freezing cold and hurt our calf muscles by spending the whole performances and soundchecks on our tippy toes trying to see because were so short.

For the red tour, me and Sophia went to Red tour Newark night three and Red tour Philly. My mom sewed the lucky one-type leg slip for us and we wore red shorts underneath and the long red gloves. (we even had giraffe stuff because not long before Taylor was obsessed with the giraffes at disney world WHO REMEMBERS) (im on the left)

At the beginning of the 1989 era, we filmed a video of us dancing to shake it off and submitted it to GMA for a chance to meet Taylor when she performed during 1989 release week, although we didnt win we did get a nice shout out on tv :)))

next was release week of 1989: me and soph got to new york city with her parents even earlier this time around, around 3ish i believe. We got a spot on the barricade and were able to somehow see behind all the VIPs that time

After bawling our eyes out because Taylor waved to us on the street from her van leaving GMA and STOPPED TRAFFIC TO GET OUT AND HUG A FAN ON THE SIDE OF A MAIN ROAD IN MANHATTEN, we somehow survived. shes an angel. (im on the right)

once the 1989 tour dates were announced, we immediately started planning our tour outfit. It was alot harder this time around because we wanted it to be PERFECT. also around this time miss Taylor started attacking the fandom on social media. I documented all the steps of making our signs and how my mom SEWED OUR DRESSES AND CREATED THEM ALL BY HERSELF (on top of me asking her to custom make me my prom dress…)

our first date of the tour was Philly night one!!!! we each got noticed by @taylornation and got a call the week before about a confidential message. of course we were bawling after realizing we both got the message!!! we ended up getting chosen to be interviewed for xfinity on us being fans of Taylor. The people from taylornation were so so sweet and directed us to head to the taylor nation tent after our interview before the show. Kevin was there waiting and he immediately knew who we were. HE HAD PHOTOS OF US ON HIS PHONE. HE HAD A PHOTO OF ME AND MY CAT ON HIS PHONE. I WAS LIKE WHAT HOW WHAAAAT. he asked where our seats were that night ( i mentioned how that night they were pretty high uP) then he asked how front row sounded and…..I IMMEDIATELY RAN BACK TO MY DAD WHO INSISTED ON STILL WAITING IN LINE AT THE BOOTH AND HE THOUGHT I WAS KIDDING AND THEN HE CAME UP WITH ME AND SOPH TO THE FRONT AND EVERYONE WAS CRYING AND THEN HE MENTIONED WE HAD TO STAY CALM. he escorted us down to FRONT ROW! my dad even was freaking out because hes obsesseddd with taylor.

we immediately made my dad take a million photos of us in every position possible and he was really confused but he was a trooper.

we got hungry and decided to grab pizza, all our twitter mutuals were freaking out with us and we met a bunch of mutuals inside as well! but then all of a sudden….

we were ATTACKED and sobbing. somehow we survived that night.

we went to [hilly night two and metlife night one as well :) somehow our photos got around tumblr and people were recoognizing us before the shows AND A LITTLE BOY CAME UP TO ME SAYING HE SAW ME ONLINE AND

Miss Taylor, i thought in order to be friends, it wouldnt be fair if i didnt share a bit of my story. We both adore you endlessly. Thank you for being with us both.

@taylorswift

Let’s talk about 2x15

Okay, so I know a lot (if not all) of us are freaking out with those 2x15 stills, me included, and like a lot of you pointed out looks like they are wearing the same outfit from 1x12, meaning this could be a flashback. 

BUT, I’m a piece of shit and I had to be 100% sure those were the same outfits and here is what I noticed:

Magnus is wearing the same robe, but in 1x12, he was also wearing another shirt under it. The necklaces and rings are different too. Plus on the new still he has a white streak on his hair that he didn’t have in 1x12. (Also in the other stills that he’s with the red shirt he’s wearing the same necklace and the make up is the same from the blue robe still.)

Now Alec. His shirt has the same color, but the collar of them are different, so it’s not the exact same shirt. 

My conclusion is: I have more reasons to believe this is not a flashback scene and just a coincidence than the opposite. Yes, Todd said we would have a Magnus flashback from season 1 and that would involve Alec, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that Alec will be in the flashback. He could be talking about him. Also, I don’t believe they would be this sloppy and make such a stupid continuity mistake. 

Another thing to point out is that by 1x12 they didn’t have the intimacy that they’re showing on the stills. I think it’s also worth mentioning that last episode (2x13) Alec was wearing the same shirt he wore in 1x04, so they could be doing the same thing with Magnus. And, if you think about it, Alec is always wearing the same type of clothes *3 different green sweaters this season*, so it only makes sense he has 5 different shirts with the same color. 

Anyways this is all speculation and I could be 100% right or 100% wrong. Let’s just calm down with the theories and see what happens. Be safe people! :)

Many years ago, as a 14 year old, staying overnight at a friends house, with 3 other friends, similar ages. We’d all grown up together, except one, who was a cousin of the kid who lived there, and we’d never met him before. His older sister, 16 at the time, was the babysitter while the parents were out for the evening.

She decides to unearth a ouija board from a cupboard somewhere, and thinks it’ll be a laugh to scare us shitless. This was back in the days, when you could buy ouija boards as a ‘board game’ from your local toy store.

So we all gather round, and she starts off with a kind of yes/no lie detector, directing questions to the each of us in turn. Cue nervous giggles, but also a feeling of unease, as we all began to feel like this was awesomely amazing, like some kind of secret that we’d all been unaware of before.

Shit gets strange, when the sister asks out loud, that 'if anybody is here, please show yourself’. A pause of a few seconds, and then a framed picture falls off the wall, and onto the floor. Naturally, we all freak the fuck out. She calms us all down, and insists we go back to the board, because we have to help whoever knocked the picture down.

Ashen faced, and hearts pounding, we start asking questions (And I should also add, the pointer is moving smoothly and rapidly, in a completely different manner than before.)

Are you in the room? pointer says yes. Are you a man? pointer says no. Do you need help? pointer says no Whats’ your name? pointer spells out S-A-R-A-H Tell us a secret, we ask… pointer spells out FLIPACOIN

So we did. Someone leaves the table and gets a 10p piece from out of the loose change jar in the kitchen. This was in the days when 10p coins were big and chunky. The coin goes spinning high up into the air…

…as we watch it coming down, it stops spinning and serenely falls edge down to land on the table. When I say land, it didnt bounce, it didnt rock, it just came down and met the table, perfectly balanced on it’s edge, as if someone had reached out, and gently placed it there

Breaking the silence, the pointer starts moving again. Seemingly random letters, we soon realise they’re initials, including middle names. Family tradition for my friend and his sister was to have 3 middle names, something not all of us knew. Aside from the brother and the cousin, no-one else would have known the older sister’s full name, and we’d met the cousin for the first time that night. Somehow, every person present, had their initials correctly spelled out to them.

Pointer pauses, and then spells out 3 last words. CHILDREN. STOP. NOW.

Took me many many weeks to be able to sleep properly. No-one told their parents, and over the years it became our collective shared secret. Couldn’t rationalise it then, still cant rationalise it today.

TMNT x Reader!

Imagine ending an unhappy relationship to be with your favorite turtle. You end up moving into the lair and spend the next few months in happy bliss…until, that us, your ex is targeted by one of the turtles enemies and you end up bringing him to the lair.
Imagine your ex talking bad about you in front of the turtles, thinking that Casey is…

“Leonard. Or something like that. Anyway, I haven’t seen her since we broke up.” Ex said, rolling his eyes as he watched Casey.
Leonardo is pretty much ignoring him.
You had told him enough about the relationship to make him understand that this guy was a total jackass. A jackass he has little to none interest in.
He instead focuses on his katanas, calmly sharpening them as Adam continued.
“I mean, I’m better off without her anyway, probably would have ended up dumping her anyway.”
Sure you would, kid. Leo simply smiled as he inspected his blades carefully.
“She was a slut anyway.”
He wasn’t smiling anymore. Anger flooded his veins as he attempted to compose himself as best he could.
“What did you just call her?” he hissed.
His voice was low and deadly, something his brothers would pick up on any day. This idiot however, did not.
“What’s it matter? It’s not like you’re-”
“Leonardo. My name is Leonardo.”
He was looking over the ex now, his blue eyes glinting with anger.
“And you will NOT speak about her like that.”
“Wait…she left me for a God damn turtle?!”
“No. She left you for a man.”

“I dunno, some loser. Went on and on about how she was sick of me and wanted someone better.”
Raph couldn’t care less about this loser.
He might of been, if he hadn’t of known how freaking awful this guy had been to you. Sleeping around, breaking your heart, and always blaming you for it.
Fucking asshole.
“And I’m just like, good luck with that! I mean seriously…” He said, eyeing Casey with disdain.
Doesn’t this guy ever shut up?
“Who’d want a bitch like her?”
Oh, hell no.
Raphael is standing over him in a second, his hulking form looming over the ex.
“Me.” He growled, his fist slamming into the wall just about Ex’s head.
It took him a minute, but once he made the connection, he turned ghost white on the spot, trembling just a little. He couldn’t even speak.
Good. Someone needed to shut him up.
“Don’t ya ever, EVER, call her that agian, ya understand me? Ya ain’t fit to even look at her, ya little punk.”

“Donald or Doyle, I don’t know! I just know she fucking walked out on me.”
Donatello is done.
This guy was the “worst mistake of your entire life” (your words, not his) and yet, here he was, acting like you owed him something.
He’s trying to stay calm, he really is. But right now?
He was mad enough to make Raphael look like a little kitten. And that was saying something.
“I don’t care really, she can do what she wants.”
Yes she can, now please shut up.
“But she could have at least put out once. God knows she opened up her legs fast enough for Dewey.”
Donatello stops. And stands up, slowly turning around to face him.
“I’ve noticed a few flaws in your argument here, maybe you need my help. First off, don’t act like you were innocent in the relationship, you know damn well that you weren’t treating her right. You deserve to be walked out on. Secondly, you most certainly do care, because otherwise you wouldn’t be complaining to ME about it. And thirdly, she didn’t owe you sex or anyone else for that matter, it’s HER choice. And…”
He was standing tall know, proudly looking down on the man who had caused you so much pain, staff in hand. Ex, at this point, was frozen in fear and probably regretting every choice in his life that had led up to this moment.
“The name is Donatello.”

“I have no clue. I just come home one day, her shit is gone and she’s like, bye. Three years down the drain, just like that.”
And who’s fault was that?
The one who lied and cheated and went around his girl’s back with her best friend? Or the the one who tried to make it work, tried to fix things?
Michelangelo is fuming inside, trying to keep control. He can’t stand that this guy is spewing shit like this about HIS girl but he doesn’t know what to do.
It’s your ex, your battle, right?
“I mean, if she was so desperate, she could have just asked me, I would have taken care of it.” Ex said, putting out his cigarette.
Considering what you told Mikey about this jerk’s skill, not freaking likely.
“Just can’t wait to watch this guy fuck her and leave her-”
It was the straw that broke the turtle’s back.
“Like Hell I will!”
Mikey lept over the couch, storming over to the guy, fists clenched and itching to take those nunchucks and slap some sense into him. But he held back.
By some miracle, he didn’t kick Ex’s ass all the way to Mars.
“Lemme tell you something, buddy. Y/N is smart, sexy, and a million times better than you! She was too good for your stupid self and you fucking know it.”
He pushed the guy back onto ass, which only served to freak him out even more.
“So why don’t YOU do us all a favor and shut the hell up?”
