I can't find it now, but my wife saw an article once about experimental groups in psychological studies. LOTS of such studies are performed in US and then seen as applicable to the rest of (westernised) world. The article stated that all those studies really shouldn't be generalised on the whole world - because Americans are fairly unique in their qualities and opinions. It's like learning about birds in general from studying penguins. Maybe that's why US ppl think the whole world is like them.

A few American folks have commented on one of my earlier posts about that insular thinking, explaining it’s because of the education (“indoctrination”) system in most schools.

I always thought it was because Americans typically have all their media aimed at them while the rest if the world consumes that media from America plus some of their own and some from other countries. In Australia, a hyge percent of TV is American, and another big chunk is British. We grow up aware that our culture and lifestyle is just one of many.

I think it’s a combination of a lot of factors, but the only people who refuse to believe their experiences are not universal and who get angry and entitled when people don’t do things their way on Tumblr are typically American teenagers. I think they are just victims of growing up in a world that 100% caters to them.

some fans didn’t know jin was a rich boy?

he’s talked about traveling around the world with his dad and he’s gone on a bunch of ski/snow boarding trips and talked about buying the members food during trainee days with money from his parents and he knows expensive alcohol and likes lobster and play golf and thats all i can think of off the top of my head but yeah lots of things about him add up to at least moderately wealthy upbringing

maybe its just my sociology major jin stanning ass that thought it was obvious lol

anonymous asked:

In the ask about if Victor would ask yuuri to dance/kissed him: "and he knew it" who? Victor? or Yuuri? Because tbh I was always confused a little about what was going thru Yuuris head during that time. He was supposedly antagonistic but there was something under the surface there and I'm still wondering if he was meant to be completely surprised by V kissing him then or on some level aware that's where it headed and maybe even purposefully leading it there?

You’ll see Viktor’s POV soon enough but in that line I was referring to Yuuri. He knew what he was doing, he knew what it implied, even if he couldn’t and didn’t admit it to himself. He spent the (very short) conversation deliberately antagonizing Viktor (“Your routine was very good today. It was worthy of second place.”) then starting to think sexually about him (Yuuri had to fight to stop himself from blushing a little because seeing Viktor in a waistcoat had brought back some rather vivid memories of the last time Yuuri had seen him that way, both in reality and in the privacy of his own dreaming mind) then walks out the door and specifically invites Viktor to come with him (he turned back to Viktor, raising an eyebrow. Daring him to follow). Yuuri’s in denial about why but he’s not an idiot and he knows on some level what it implies. Inviting someone to go somewhere private after that was either going to be for a fight or a fuck and it’s why he’s not surprised when Viktor kisses him (this thing between them was just another power play, their mutual frustrations at each other final reaching its breaking point. It could have ended in a fight but instead it ended in this ). In fact, he actually encourages it (Yuuri knew in that moment that he was about do something very reckless and very, very stupid. He tilted his glass up in a mocking toast, a toast to his own victory over the other man. He knew the smile on his face was far from kind and there was the glint of a challenge in his eyes, bright and fierce).

So yes, in the first incident Yuuri is the main instigator, not Viktor. He denies it in his own mind but if you read between the lines you can see exactly what was really going on. 

Friday Night Philosophy

When I was young
Somebody once said to me
You think too much
And I recall replying
Really?
Can there be anything such?
Too much thinking?
I think that used to be called
Philosophising
The greatest minds were always
Hypothesising
Always thinking
Questioning
More recently some say to me
You drink too much
And as my life plays
I recall those days
When I did too much thinking
All those times when
I thought too much
Hours, days, weeks
Spending
Too much time thinking
Not achieving much
Procrastinating
Ruminating
And on my reflection
It became my conclusion
That too much thinking
Was why
I took to drinking
And now when I’m sat with a fine wine
Having quiet time
I think some more
But I now know the score
I know me
And although
I haven’t studied philosophy
I’m aware of Descartes ponderous legacy
I think
So
Therefore I am
Which now I can extrapolate to
I think and drink
Cos’
I can
Some of my most creative
Thinking
Comes when I’m wine drinking
But I’m also acutely aware that
Some utter trash
Is found at the bottom of my wine glass
Maybe there can’t ever be
Too much thinking
But there can be
Too much drinking
Modern advice would be
To do both
Drink and Think
In moderation
Society can’t be doing with
Too much drinking
Or the challenge of
Too much thinking
But
If you can drink and think in equal measure
Then thats a treasure
Time to think
Time to drink
Time for reflection
Introspection
The perfect equation
That’s my summation

hello roby! can you give any tips on drawing scenery? i'm struggling with my current assignment to paint buildings with acrylic and i'm having trouble making it look realistic

start off with really simple blocks and blobs of color and slowly build from there, thats the basic answer… ^^ get the shape and layout down first before dealing with the details. work big to small detail wise. 

also be aware of lighting (is is more blue? is it warmer lighting? maybe its the evening and the lighting is more pinkish?) and shadows on the building

I have this unfinished thought about bullying trauma and how a lot of antis (and "aphobes", etc) seem to be reenacting their own bullying, and I wonder if maybe that's why they're so dead set against people using kink/fandom as catharsis for trauma? Because acknowledging that it's possible to, say, play out or retell scenarios from your own trauma in a safe environment with consenting peers, would mean acknowledging the harm done by forcing people to participate in theirs nonconsensually.

I don’t think most cyberbullies have the self-awareness to be aware that they’re reenacting their own trauma on others, but when they get an inkling of the realization that they’re hurting people because of their own unhealed wounds, I’m sure that some double down on their bullying for this exact reason. It’s a bitter pill to realize a better form of relief has been in front of you the whole time and many people probably struggle to handle it. 

ALL THE NEW JERSEY REPLIES/ASKS IVE GOTTEN 

I THOUGHT IT WAS A WEIRD US FIGURE OF SPEECH!!!!!!!!!!!!

i am now very embarrassed and very aware of the shore!! i googled ‘Taylor Ham’ assuming it was a person, like some new jersey popstar maybe, and i was. proved wrong. it’s a good thing i googled it. 

aaaaahhh!!! thank you so much!!!! this really helps :D

i assumed the entirety of the US is just littered with diners but your passion really seems to drive it home that There Are A Lot in nj. making it a note in my head for future fics that i can stick these teens in a diner. 

this is terrifying and has a super huge gothic horror vibe and really encapsulates the location despite the fact ive never been there. thank you so much for sending me this, it really stirred an emotion inside of me.

Hey I have a question thats been bothering me for some time and idk how to google it so maybe you can help me haha.Was Ted the 'inventor' of the whole poor man seeking help thing?Like with his arm in a sling and generally the way he worked if you know what I mean.did he just popularize it as his method or was that a new thing?Cause the way his victims helped him it seemed they werent aware of this method as we today are.If some random dude wants your help like that today itd be totally different

That’s actually a really interesting question. I can’t think of any killers before him that used such a ruse, maybe somebody else can add to this question.

All the reasons to force.

Me: *sigh* Nobody cares about anything I do! Why should I ever bother?

Tulpa: You know, forcing might solve that problem for you.

Me: I really wish I had someone to talk to throughout the day so I don’t get that weird brain fog and emotional-ness that comes from being alone.

Tulpa: *coughing* foRCE *cough*

Me: I always do better on my homework when there’s someone around me, watching me…I feel like I have to do good then, most of the time.

Tulpa: Perhaps…maybe…just maybe…forcing might help…with that…

Me: I don’t believe my positive thoughts unless someone else backs them up! They don’t seem “real” unless they’re confirmed by another person!

Tulpa: *trying to violently shake me* FORCE YOU DICKWAD F O R C E

Yes bh is literally one of the few goods companies that treat their artists very good but some people need to be aware bh is not perfect. I'm so done with this. Literally all we want is Jin to sing more THATS ALL. he has an amazing voice he can sing he has talent.!!! I hope you're not stressing out over people trying to defend bh and making up excuses

maybe bighit can be seen as a “good company” because the only group they are managing right now is bts (and homme but honestly they aren’t actively promoting them) sm, yg and jyp have so many artists and also trainees of course they are problematic… im saying that if bighit can’t treat their only successful group well they suck so bad at their job.

i didn’t know getting the point across would be this hard. just.. let seokjin sing..

Did you start Luaggie? Or did it start somewhere else? I wonder how people started to ship them. I love the ship though! Your art is amazing 💕

Thank you so much~ I think there was another artist who was into it first, but I wasn’t aware at the time.

I was watching Loud House with CoyoteRom and after reading some stuff about Luan being gay, we started to joke around with “what if Luan and this goth girl went out” and, turns out we both loved the dynamic so much of Luan being with someone who was maybe depressed or at least introverted. — so we started to draw it a lot and then other people seem to like it too.

I think everyone has a little side of them thats attracted to the different, like how a shy person finds comfort in an outgoing person, or someone athletic might find a doughy nerd to be really cute and sweet.

Bah.

Ludicrous Popinjay. 

I know how the scene in the elevator (or whatever that is) between Bucky and Steve, when they get to the bunker in Siberia, looks like a wasted kiss opportunity, but let’s think about this: they were entering the place where Bucky was kept and tortured for decades. And in that scene, in that moment, you kind of see that. You see that he is aware of this and fuck, how hard do you think that was for him?

But he looks at Steve, maybe searching for some kind of comfort, or strength, and the tiny, reassuring nod he gets from him is enough. They are together and everything is okay.

A lil’ somethin’ about the hug and butthurts..

first of all.. why am i seeing lots of people said shitz about that chanbaek hug..?

like seriously..? actually i don’t want to write this, but the amount of sh*tz i saw on Chanbaek tag are just ridiculous.. 

guys.. 

they hugged.. and we shippers are happy for it since its maybe the realest, closest contact/skinship chanbaek had for i don’t know, few years..!?

look guys.. we shippers, well most of us like chanbaek not as brothers.. many of us see chanbaek as two guys liking each other romantically.. you can see them whatever you want but thats what we see them as.. 

so can you understands why we are so happy when they hugged..? yes Chanbaek do aware of their ship’s popularity, with the amount of chanbaek banners in the venue also might be the catalyst for Sehun to decided to do it, and that hug could just be some fanservice arranged by them themselves..

but what makes us so excited and going all nuts about is how genuine Chanbaek’s and the members’ reactions are towards that 3 seconds hug..

Don’t tell me that smile on Baekhyun’s face is fake.. no ONE can fake THAT kind of smile.. i bet Baekkie are just being mischievous because Chanyeol is freaking out and shy because like i said, this is probably their first ever REAL hug on stage or on public..! 

idk what else do you want.. i know that i don’t know chanbaek.. i don’t know exo or close with them, i’m a total stranger, but i’m someone who loves exo.. when you love someone or something, you know them up and down.. mostly.. and i think i can read my chanbaek based on what i saw these past years.. what i closely see..  

tbh, i didn’t read that 5 paragraph analysis in weibo(?) about that hug, but based on what i saw, Chanbaek liked it.. and the members reactions, confirmed it.. 

Chen - their best friend - his reactions are also very fishy..

https://twitter.com/hyx1991/status/691283505817358338

how suho and chen dropped from their supposed frozen state after they saw what Sehun want to do with Chanbaek.. and Chen’s smiles after that are just weird to me.. 

don’t make me pointed out kyungsoo’s reaction.. 

gifs cr: @awkwardmickey 

if you guys know me you know that i call Kyungsoo, Chanbaek guardian angel or kyungsoo as someone who definitely knows something about chanbaek.. whether chanbaek is real or not, kyungsoo definitely knows something.. look at kyungsoo.. he looks so happy after the hug tho. what is that..!? if chanyeol hates it, and kyungsoo knows Chanyeol hates it, i bet he won’t make such approving face and smile.. 

another thing..

the awkwardness.. 

aigoo.. guys..! 

chanbaek never hug on stage before.. like real hug..! and tbh, i dont sense any awkwardness in that hug.. what i sensed..? shyness.. both of them are embarrassed.. thats why the hug come out a little bit weird looking.. but thats not awkwardness.. Baekhyun’s face are not showing any awkwardness or un-comfortableness.. chanyeol also are smiling so widely and they even teasing each other during that hug..

i bet all of you aware that, to avoid doing what Sehun always made his victims do, fake kiss, Chanbaek use their height difference.. Chanyeol tiptoe-ing while Baekhyun lower his head.. but do you realize..? when the hug are about to happen, when Sehun pushes both of their bodies together, chanyeol drop his tiptoe and Baekhyun tiptoe instead..!


http://ms1611.tumblr.com/post/138024523393/%C2%BAchanbaek-manila%C2%BA-ok-im-sorry-i-just-cant 


most of you said that Baekkie open his hat so that it wont hit chanyeol’s face, right..? if he don’t want it to hit chanyeol’s face, why the heck did he tip-toed..!!!!!? he did it so that he can put his arm around Chanyeol’s shoulder/neck.. did you ever think it like that.? at all..? look at Chanbaek’s perspective.. 

ok guys.. thats all form me.. hahahaha.. i don’t understands all the hates and names and shades thrown at us Firelights regarding our reactions towards this hug.. you guys, non-Firelights have no idea how precious this moment is to us.. how long we’ve been waiting for chanbaek to atleast make an obvious fanservice together as chanbaek.. they are very popular.. Firelights is a very big family.. i always say to myself, i don’t mind even if the moment look obviously like fanservice, just please do something for us.. 

there are a lot of moments other ships has.. they hugs, kisses, teases, skinships, many more.. but chanbaek? they claimed that they are bestfriend.. the members talked about how loud and active they are when they are together.. but they dont show that to us.. we Firelights who are craving for something from them.. 

so please understands our feelings.. we got enough hates just being a Firelight.. just liking chanbaek.. why? yes because we take Chanbaek seriously.. we don’t ship chanbaek for mere reasons but for real chanbaek..  i don’t and i won’t touch about their sexuality, sexual orientations and their sexual status, because i know many people will backlash me with many other shetz regarding that.. for us, we see love in chanbaek.. thats it.. thats the only reasons we love them so much.. 

ok..? 

p/s: see? this is why i don’t want to make any post about my thought on that hug moment.. haishhh.. i always ended up with long ass post and emotional closing.. sigh.. aigoo.. please guys.. this is MY OPINION.. so like i always said in all of my posts, if you agree, then cool.. if you don’t, also cool.. but i don’t need your hates, your rant and your BS in my inbox or my chat.. my blog is mine and i post chanbaek.. so yeah..

have a good night  Firelights.. <3 you yall my family ^^

Heya, just to let you know a lot of the links in your fic recs list don't seem to work they just redirect back to tumblr. Thats absolutely not to say you should feel you have to fix them (I know you're not doing fic recs any more), i just thought id let you know just in case you hadn't realised! Have a nice day :)

Thanks for letting me know! I’m aware that some of them are broken, but unfortunately i have over 140 lists and maybe hundreds of fics linked in total, it’d be an awful a lot of work to fix them and i’m not even sure that’d fix the links on the pre-existing reblogs. I’d suggest googling the title of the fic and the authors name to find the fic you’re looking for. Sorry i can’t help more. Have a nice day!

sometimes i think about the fact that if i werent somehow naturally motivated to teach myself shit from a very young age id just be out here being a total fucking dumbass not knowin a damn thing

SIGNAL BOOST

Seriously, my dad just encountered this and it should not be happening

hey y'all

just wanted to put this out there so nobody gets caught by it

There is an IRS PHONE SCAMgoing around

Basically, someone calls your phone and claims they are from the IRS. They tell you that you owe money because you incorrectly filled out your tax forms. DO NOT BELIEVE THEM.  Then they tell you that you need to pay it immediately because it is a time sensitive issue. They threaten you with arrest, suspended drivers license, turning off your utilities, etc. They get extremely hostile and try to scare you into paying them. 

There is so much wrong with this that these should be BIG red flags

The IRS does not call you first and immediately threaten arrest. Their first method of contact is mail, like legit snail-mail. They tend to send multiple notices before attempting to contact you another way.  Threatening you with arrest is basically a last attempt to get you to pay your taxes and thats after meeting with tax attorneys or tax professionals to admit that you actually did something wrong. Or it is after an audit.  They never try to be intimidating or manipulative. Every time I have talked to a member of the IRS, they have been kind and patient, and they attempting to resolve the issue as peacefully as possible.

Some helpful tips to remember if you think you are being scammed:

  • NEVER give any pertinent information over the phone. This includes SSN, Birthdate, Credit Card information, etc. If they request you to and it is the actual IRS, you can ask if you can make an appointment to talk to someone in person at the office. 
  • Ask as many questions as possible that is relevant to the situation. You may think it is unnecessary, but one of those questions may stump the scammer and you may get a better idea of the scam.
  • Always ask for a name/ID number for the IRS personnel you are dealing with. They all have them and that way if you call back, you can attempt to talk to the same person or check if they are an actual employee.
  • DO NOT GIVE MONEY OVER THE PHONE. This is pretty much a always situation. Like it is almost impossible to know if you are talking to a legit employee or someone faking, so better safe than sorry.

Some hints that it is a scam:

  • The person gives you a very generic name that could be faked like John Smith or something
  • They claim they do not have an employee ID number. Federal employees get one so usually thats BS if they say they don’t have one. Not always but usually
  • They become hostile or angry easily. Employees at any job tend to be working to make the customer happy, hence they attempt to avoid any harsh tones or angry words.  If the person becomes irrationally angry or pushy, they are trying too hard to sell you something or get you to cooperate.
  • They ask you to pay right then and there. And they do not accept it if you say you will call back or pay at another time. They make it sound like a life or death situation in order to force you into paying. Threats are made. 
  • They don’t call from a government number. This goes with the Caller ID sort of stuff, but if it does not say IRS, it most likely is not the actual IRS.

Some things to do after the phone call:

  • Call the local police; even if you didn’t give in to the scam, it gives them an idea of the frequency of the scam and helps bring about awareness
  • Tell everyone you know; Hence why I am writing this now lol If you get the word out, less people will become victims of it.
  • Contact the IRS or some sort of government agency to make sure they are aware of the scam. The IRS has a contact number for scams that you can call and report it to.

Basically, keep an eye out. It would really suck if a bunch of people got trapped by this. The guy asked my dad for $1500 and I’m pretty sure thats a hefty amount for a lot of us to pay. 

So pass this around and make sure to get the word out about the IRS Phone Scam

thanks all!!!

Hey celticmagic! I just saw your post about rainwater. What if the rainwater is acidic from pollution though?

ohhh this is a good question! i hadnt actually thought of this before. I tried to do some research to see if anyone had any ideas but i couldnt find any. So i think it would really depend on your intentions for why you want to use it. But it could be used just like regular rain water as long as you dont plan to ingest it. But i do think it could be used in hexes and curses to amp them up some, like maybe you want to add some pollution into someone life. Or i also think it could also be used to bring awareness to pollution in our world. Just do what feels right to you, thats what magics all about! i know this wasnt the most helpful answer but i hope it helps you a little and also if anyone else has any good ideas feel free to suggest them!
