I saw a post about “Please stop hitting on women while they’re at work” and I 100% agree with it, which is why I’m making a separate post to say please don’t hit on people in general when they’re at work.
I work at a bakery and we have this sweet 16 about to turn 17 year old boy who works up front of our store. He used to work at the place next door to us and, while he was there, a girl he was working with developed a bit of a crush on him and asked him out.
He said no, that he has a girlfriend (which she already knew) and thought they could just continue on being friends and coworkers.
Since beginning work at our bakery she stops in every single day and talks to him for the entirety of her 30 minute long break. He has told her multiple times that he’s at work and can’t stand around and talk and when I asked him if he was uncomfortable his response was a very relieved “Oh, God, yes.”
He’s tried to talk to one of the owners about it and his response was “You can talk to her after work” not realizing this poor boy is being made incredibly uncomfortable on a daily basis in the work place.
When we told him he could come into the back to find something to do if he needed to he was so incredibly thankful and relieved. This girl spent twenty minutes standing up front waiting for him to come back after he said he had to go do something. Twenty minutes in the front of the store ever after being told he can’t talk to her. He doesn’t know what would happen if he says that he doesn’t want to talk to her and is genuinely nervous every time she walks in.
The only reprieve he gets is from the bakers in the back saying “I get it. Come back here” because the Owners don’t understand that he, a male coworker,can be made uncomfortable by these unwanted advancements being made toward him.
This post isn’t made to undersell not hitting on women while they’re at work. I get that and that’s why this separate post exists.
PSA for the AH community: our beloved AHWU has not been doing well with views and it might be cancelled due to that. In response, AH has reworked AHWU so that it’s more entertaining and fun! Including achievement hunter mail time, the schedule for videos to be released for the week, and more nonsense! So give it a watch so they keep doing it! It’s where all the gifsets come from after all

Let me drown in my Darkiplier hell. My inner fanfiction writer won’t let him go.
And yet the analysis machine rolls on…because I’m clingy and can’t let go.
This time around, I was thinking about what Mark had said about Dark through his charity livestream around the time the date video released (transcript here), and how they were able to translate that into what we have seen in Darkiplier’s entrances. One of them in particular stood out to me the most.
“Darkiplier is an entirely different person from me. But, much like Warfstache, doesn’t obey the laws of physics. He exists in another world entirely and bleeds through into this one.
Honestly, I think a lot of people have already had this as their personal canon for Dark, given that a grand majority of the ones I’ve seen just consider him some kind of demon who took a liking to Mark because come on, he’s famous and has a rather muscular body that’s PERFECT for…demon…plans…or whatever demons plan out.
Actually, what really caught my interest is that Darkiplier doesn’t obey the laws of physics. As a physics major, this makes me wonder what laws he could be following, as I personally believe that any world follows some form of “physical law”. I sat on it for a few days before I figured it out. It’s pretty rational too.
He runs on video editing logic.
He doesn’t walk anywhere, he jump cuts. Notice how he never walks us to a table for dinner, we just…appear there. No problems, after all. He has the power of jump cut. We’ll just be there because we can.
His emotions literally operate how we see him. His anger leaks through in glitches, ruining what is otherwise a “cleanly shaped” image of himself.
Notice how the angrier he gets, the more glitches and zooms occur. On top of that, the one thing I utterly love is how the camera shakes. Dark’s rage is leaking at such a capacity that even the dimension we’re in is shaking. It remains as my favorite effect applied in the entire series, and if Mark ever does bring him back for another round, we get more camera shakes. Shake that camera like you shake that neck, dude.
But compare that to when he’s finalizing how we’re going to be together forever and that we can never leave.
No glitches, no rapid camera shakes, hell, Dark’s not even saturated in color filters like the wine bottle next to him. He’s fully in control of his berserker rage and now the dimension we’re in is fully stabilized. There’s nothing to be angry about; he’s won. It’s the ONLY scene where Dark isn’t surrounded by glitches. So for the first time, he’s not even angry. Holy shit.
But there’s one thing that solidifies my theory on Darkiplier’s physics logic. And it’s this one right here.
Darkiplier somehow has the ability to keep us trapped in a loop in this prison until we take another ending route. We can all assume that perhaps he just uses his otherworld demon powers to keep us here for him to watch us go through our personal hell. But let’s reword this logic.
What if…instead of saying he has the power to trap people in dimension loops…
