just that was really not cool

Temporarily Closing Askbox

Hulloooo buddy pals, Okayto here.

I’m temporarily closing the askbox because this blog has really picked up traffic, which is cool, but I work full-time, am in grad school, and also have pressing things like

  • lint-rolling every piece of cloth in my home because my white cat is a malicious shedder and I have many dark clothes and blankets
  • doing laundry which never ends life is just a continuous laundry cycle
  • trying to figure out why my laptop will not rip the Moana CD what more do you want fickle machine???
  • lint-rolling my face every day because somehow the cat has directed his fur to seek out my nose and eyebrows specifically
  • it’s tax season and I need to be responsible and not wait until the last day this year
  • my secret goal is to get ahead in grad school homework, I’ve never been ahead before but I bet it feels great
  • I have visitors coming for Easter and it really is going to take me like 3 weeks to adequately clean the house

all of which combine to make it hard for me to spend a lot of time on the computer. Right now it’s about all I can do to keep up with the queue. I will still get to the asks already submitted, and you can continue to message me things you think I should see (@-ing me runs the risk that it will get buried; this blog gets busy enough I can’t manage it on mobile and I’m only on desktop maybe once a day, if that).

And as always, I encourage you cool creative people to make your own posts because this blog has always been only a small portion of the many sci-fi/humans in space/space Australia posts.

i always get a little miffed when i see apollo refered to as “the only man artemis ever loved” because no he wasn’t there was this dude named orion who accidentally stumbled on her hunting camp one time and she got all “hey fuck off im not having any of your rapey shit” but he was just like “dude wtf no its night time in the forest and youve got a campfire i just want to get warm” and she was like “???? okay?? this is weird and i don’t trust you but whatever” and they got to talking and they became the bestest hunting buddies ever and then apollo showed up like “oh HELL no youre not having your way with my sister” and tried to kill orion but artemis was like “damn it you sunbaked asshole think before you attack do you really think i couldnt have killed this guy on my own if i wanted to? hes cool af okay ima be mad as hell if you hurt him” and apollo was like “oh okay i get it i have to be sneaky about the fact that im a jealous fucknut who wants to kill this dude just because youre hanging out with him instead of me” so he gave orion a dream where he got killed by a fucking 10 foot scorpion and when he woke up there was an actual 10 foot scorpion outside his house so he did what any reasonable motherfucker would do and grabbed his gods damn sword to try and kill it but it was too strong and it pushed him back into the sea so he just goes “fuck this shit ima swim for it” and then apollo went to artemis and was all like “hey i saw this dude rape and kill a girl and i could have killed him myself but i thought youd want to do it” and artemis is all “youre damn right i do” and she shoots an arrow through orion’s face from so far away that his head looked like a tiny dot on the water at which point apollo just starts laughing like “haha lmao you said i couldnt kill him so i got you to do it for me also btw i lied about seeing him do some shit see ya” and fucks off to leave artemis alone with her dead best friend so she does what gods always do when shit goes down and hangs orion in the stars and goes to kill the scorpion but you know apollo didnt like that too much so he tries to send his fuckening scorpion up there to get orion a second time but artemis fuckin swats it and the scorpion ends up on the other fucking end of the sky so it never comes anywhere near him and theyre not even up there during the same months so since orion’s up there trying to hunt down that fucking scorpion and it’s trying to obey apollo and kill him, they just chase each other in circles for all eternity BUT orion got the better end of that deal because his belt is one of the most recognizable asterisms in the sky and i fucking dare you to tell me what scorpio looks like.

So, I had a retail job in a very Jewish neighborhood from late December through mid-February. I promise, calling it Jewish is relevant to the story. It was alright, my coworkers were nice and my manager was cool, but some of the customers were really something else.

One of them was telling me all about his travels and he had some pretty cool stories about going abroad and seeing the world for his entertainment job. I chatted with him for all of 20 minutes or so while my coworker put his order together (it was a super slow day and part of my job was relationship building). At the very end, when I asked him how he got into the entertainment business, he basically just summed it up with “Yeah, perks of being an Aryan.”

…This conversation led to me decidedly telling my dad that no, I will not be wearing my Star of David necklace to work to try and make new friends.

Seriously though, I used to help Jewish people at that store every single day, they came in all the time and this person comes and straight up says he’s Aryan? I mean, I guess I’m glad he warned me, but wow.

About a week later another guy came in, told me I probably didn’t like Trump (just by looking at me, he could somehow tell. You’d think that if you could stereotype a young woman as anti-Trump, there might be something wrong with the guy), and then proceeded to talk at me for about 15 minutes about his virtues while I just sort of smiled and nodded.

I didn’t work in politics, I worked in a retail store for goodness sake! If I did work in politics though, someone would be getting an earful!

About the title of chapter 118

The title of this chapter is called “A Good Story”. I guess it’s obvious, but I find it very fitting to the contents of this chapter. This chpaters begin with Furuta once again playing a role in front of an audience. He feeds a false story to this audience which gets them excited. I thinks it pretty messed up how this qrotesgue display of, who were basically just children, cutting down people in front of them, lead to this almost animal like excited screaming from the audience.

We then cut to cafe :re where people are discussing the news. The info that the CCG has released is false. They are manipulating the information they are letting out. Basically what they are doing is information warfare as Nishiki points out, and it is very effective against ghouls since they really don’t have any sort of platform to defend themslves.

I think it was also a cool call back to CCG’s previous mentality, where everything was classfied and shrouded in secrecy. In the Void novel the co-operation between the normal police officers and the CCG folks was hard, since CCG was very reluctant to share their information. Furuta seems to be changin that.

So to sum it up, the CCG (probably mainly Fruit-chan) is creating “A Good Story” via manipulaiting information.

hey so, I need an advice. i have a bi friend, she's confided in me through her coming out, i've always been her number 1 supporter, never talking about her sexuality with anyone even when she wasn't around, I never outed her, i'm always really careful with not outing her to people in general even now that she's comfortable with her sexuality. But. I found out (understood more like?) that I was ace this summer, and I turned to her for advice. At first she rejected me, saying I just "hadn't (1/3)

(2/3) found the right guy etc etc, you know she was basically being acephobic. I kept thinking about it tho and in my mind I started to think of myself as ace, eventually I came out to two of my friends and they were totally cool, they at with me and I educated them about what it meant to be ace and that I was still trying to figure out where in the a-spec I was and that was it. Then i told this b friend of mine, and she was understanding this time. She told me she had made researches, and
(3/3) she got where I was coming from. The problem is: she is outing me left and right. I mean, she’s just randomly saying “well she’s ac,e and i’m bi” to people who go to school with us and I know she says it bc she thinks they won’t judge but neither of us knows them and I don’t know how to tell her it makes me uncomfortable without making her feel bad because she’s a very emotional person and i suffer from social anxiety and ?? what do i do ??? 


tell her about it. I know how tough anxiety is but you friend should respect you and your sexuality. You trusted her enough with that information, and she is obviously mistreating it. It isn’t her information to give out.

Does everyone know that it’s not really nice or cool to go around correcting other people’s grammar and spelling?

It makes you look like a rude jerk.

There’s lots of reasons why people may be doing it “wrong”, but do you know what you can do? 

You can just not say anything. You always have the option to not say anything and a lot of times that is a good option that doesn’t make you look like a jerk. 

Listen every time I see the Wonder Woman trailer I get really frigging excited ok

I really hope it’s good and even if it isn’t, the fact that we have such a cool looking Wonder Woman at the very least makes me happy.

Because I saw beauty and the beast yesterday and the Wonder Woman trailer dropped and a bunch of little girls behind me were actually screaming in excitement.

And normally I hate kids screaming in theaters, but this time I was just really glad that they got to see a woman being a kickass super hero and handling her business.

I wonder if anyone’s noticed

how I don’t bother to make my study space brighter or tidy up or anything before taking pictures and posting them….

Well I’m an honest guy, and frankly this is exactly how my study space ACTUALLY always IS. I don’t get any sunlight owing to the vast number of buildings all around, everything’s a little dusty from all the construction and there’s aLWAYS the sound of traffic in the background.
Amidst all this dark chaos, there’s me. Studying. Hi.
  Oh and I’m not complaining of course, I’m just saying that this is what it’s really like here. I like living here 100%, it’s just that I don’t live as aesthetically as you guys. There’s no cool lighting and artsy sun coming in through the windows or anything, and consequentially no artsy pictures :(

Just the good ol’ honest truth aye

It’s the most exciting time tbh 

For most of us, every day was Mass Effect Day before MEA but now it’s just kinda official???? 

You open Origin and you see 15 of your friends are playing MEA 

You have missions to do, a book to read later, LORE NOTES TO TAKE, cool Ryders to reblog and multiplayer to look forward to

I mean, I’m just happy right now. I’m taking my sweet time with it all because I want it to last

I feel like Namjoon wouldn’t really care, until he thought about it too much. He would wonder what was different about him that made you want to date him.

Yoongi really wouldn’t care. When you told him he would probably just be like “okay?” It doesn’t matter to him what you did in the past, you’re with him now.

"That is how Magic has worked for all but one year of its twenty-four year life." Expect now Magic is making blocks VERY different from any point in its history. The fact that the fall block has a MASSIVE promotional event in the form of Pax that the spring set simply can't get (the GP even for Shadows was really cool, but nothing like Pax) plus magic players being trained to focus on the fall block for historical reasons causes the spring block to seem less important.

We’re working on making the spring (NH) block feel just as important.

chandeelier  asked:

what do you think about nejis death and how the hyuga problem was handled? i was personally terribly disappointed

It was handled terribly. I’d have to actually go back and reread the chapters to refresh my memory (which is never gonna happen) but basically no justice was served at all. IMO it would have been way better if Hiashi died saving Neji as some kind of symbolic gesture to indicate that the “branch family” bullshit they had pedaled for years was done and over with and also pay some sort of penance for what happened to Hizashi. But frankly it just would have been nice to see old grandpa Headass go.  

Neji didn’t even really get to have an arc. They set up such a cool backstory and had all that meaningful talk about choosing your own destiny and then they completely screw him. He dies protecting the main family which leaves such a bad taste in my mouth - what kind of message is that. He died doing exactly what they told him he was born to do. Exactly what his father died doing. Never mind the fact that the real reason he died was because Kishimoto had to axe someone for the obligatory “rallying of the troops” scene and Neji was the only one who had enough pre established history to make you care but not enough screen time to be considered an essential character. They didn’t give him any respect at all and its gross honestly. He was just a plot device. 

in a well written story, bismuth and rose’s conflict could be a super cool super interesting plot point that clouds morality and brings in questions that the main characters would have to answer, but instead they just bubbled bismuth without putting any real thought into it, didn’t bring her back, and moved on without ever bringing it up again.

Like, a character who imprisons another character for trying to do something, then doing said thing themselves is actually a very cool and interesting plot idea, given that the plot goes into detail on the motivations and the morality behind it (this would definitely show some darkness in rose, and the main characters would have to confront it), but instead the show just…….. let it go, and really hurt a ton of people irl in doing so by demonizing oppressed groups and legitimizing imperialism, abuse, and control.

man i really don't understand that whole "this thing is too good for Mainstream Audiences™" like bud i'm just happy people like the thing. why do we gotta be all elitist about it? what exactly do we gotta lose by having more people think a cool thing is cool?

I feel like small audience entitlement/elitism has always been a problem with the RPG horror community… I remember this happening a long time ago with stuff like Yume Nikki too

That's Cool (but not really)

Literally could not find a hotel north of Nashville or in Louisville. Apparently this is what happens when you decide to wing your hotel reservations on your drive home during spring break. Who knows how far you’ll get with kids? They’re so unpredictable. It’s currently 2:30am and all five are awake and we are at that point where we sort of just have to drive straight through even though no one wants to.
