pretty sure they were trolling but who knows

Migration across land bridge: 15,000 years ago. Evidence of Druid traditions have been discovered which date back 25,000 years. Sorry, try again. You are a joke. Don't like cultural appropriation? Please stop using technology, medicine and engineering - ALL created by blue eyed devils. Muah ha ha ha ha ha

Uh-huh. 25,000 years? Do you have a source for that, that isn’t people claiming cave people were druids? A good, academic source? I’ll wait. Because according to all my research, the earliest possible reference to the druids is around 2,300 years ago, and the earliest for sure is around 50 BCE.

Regardless, smudging isn’t even 15,000 years old, nor did I claim it was. You may be conflating “smoke cleansing” with “smudging.” Smudging is smoke cleansing, but not all smoke cleansing is smudging. I don’t doubt the druids did smoke cleansing–I’m pretty sure they did!–but given that sage is not native to northern Europe I reaaally doubt they were doing a sage ritual like smudging.

I know the smoke cleansing I learned when studying druidry was nothing like smudging.

As for technology, that’s not how cultural appropriation works. Go look it up.

You’re an obvious troll. But I’ll bite, because you’re amusing me and because my followers might like to know some of this.

A lot of stuff was invented by people who aren’t European.

Like algebra, which can be traced to Babylon but in its more modern form was invented by a Persian.

China came up with papermaking, the compass, gunpowder.

Native Americans had rich agricultural traditions long before Europeans came, and in fact we taught the Europeans a lot. In fact, most of the food you probably eat was first cultivated here in the Americas. Corn, turkey, beans, squash, tomatos, chocolate, etc. etc. etc. The list is literally too long for me to bother with right now.

The Founding Fathers looked to the Iroquois Confederacy–my ancestors–for their ideas of how to make democracy work.

There’s a thing. You like not living under a tyrannical king? Thank an Iroquois.

Oh, medicine? We came up with lots of medicine. Like, oh, aspirin. Forceps. Syringes.

Down in Central and South America there were huge earthworks, dams, canals.

Let’s see, what else… oh! My people, the Mohawk, are famous steelworkers. Most of the skyscrapers in New York wouldn’t be there because white guys were too afraid to get up that high and build them.

Here’s a few of links for my followers:

This list literally took me five minutes to compile.

Again, none of this amounts to cultural appropriation. But if you like not being in pain, eating, living in buildings… maybe thank a Native.

Damn, trolls just aren’t what they used to be. You don’t even do good research. You literally go “mua ha ha ha ha.” I mean, yikes. Get a life. Go check out http://tumblr.evilsupply.co/. I’m sure they’ll have some tips.

(Oh, and I have blue eyes. Also, on the Druid thing? I’m part Irish. Try again.)

Homestuck Spoilers

I’m going into this mostly blind, and want to be as spoiler free as possible, but I’ve still picked up some things about the story here and there. Mostly it’s a lot of out of context details with no real significance to me:

  • I kinda know what trolls are. Like a lot of people, my first exposure to Homestuck was seeing roving bands of troll cosplayers with unsealed gray body paint. I know that they’re genderless, but that’s about it. 
  • I read the first few dozen pages of Homestuck once a couple years ago, so I know who John is, but that’s about all I remember. I never got out of John’s house, so I don’t think I really got into the meat of the story at all.
  • I’ve seen people call Homestuck a modern creation myth, so I know there are some rather expansive themes to the overall story.
  • I heard that the ending disappointed a lot of people.
  • I can describe what a lot of characters look like based on fan art, but I don’t know who any of them are:
    • There are the black and white wolf people with swords
    • There’s a girl with dog ears
    • There’s a guy with a blue shirt and a hammer
    • There are two guys who wear awesome sunglasses and a lot of red
    • There are a whole bunch of characters with a billiard ball theme
    • One of the trolls has sunglasses and a walking stick, so I’m assuming they’re blind.

That’s just about all of the things I can be sure of. I picked up a lot of random tidbits on tumblr, but I have no idea what is and isn’t canon. Like I know Dave/Karkat is a popular ship (or at least it’s popular among the homestuckers I follow), but I don’t know who either of them are in the story, or if they actually have a romantic relationship.

Or with the trolls. If you showed me a police lineup of a bunch of troll characters, I couldn’t possibly tell you which ones were canon, and which ones were fan-made. Except for the one with the walking stick. I’ve seen a lot of fan art of that one, so I’m pretty sure she’s a real character.

anonymous asked:

do you know how that troll who was "blackmailing" Dreamworks got exposed? I keep hearing they're a sh/aladin but i've never heard from where.

im pretty sure it was @ ex//t//ili//a or someone who refused to take down the leaks but someone made the twitter account like three hours before those tweets were posted and those tweets were literally the only ones posted on the account.

after the tweets were posted, a shaladingdong almost immediately uploaded them to tumblr, probably spewing some shit like ‘kl//ance shipper r out of control !!!! blah blah blah’

i haven’t seen to screenshots of who the shalafuck was but i know 100% it was one of those freaks

Upd8 Thoughts: Why is Everyone Acting So Strangely? Alternatively Titled “Vriska is a Thief of Light”

So, like many of you, while reading this upd8 my first thought was basically “what the fuck” followed by “no” and then “NO” and then “STOP NO THIS IS NOT OKAY.” And for a moment I was freaking out because what happened to all my lovely characters? What happened to Karkat’s aggressive need to be a leader? What happened to Rose’s need to be a complete know-it-all? Why is Terezi acting nigh submissive towards Vriska? What happened to Dave’s need to be a hero?

And as I read, I realized that all of these things had one thing in common: Light! Once Vriska stepped in, all of the characters lost their agency:

VRISKA: Sorry to steal all the timey thunder from the gr8 “Knight of Time”, end quote, 8ut someone had to take the initi8tive and go on a fact-finding mission. 
DAVE: no its cool 
DAVE: you can have that thunder if you want it 

TEREZI: 1 S4Y W3 BR1NG TH3M B4CK! 
VRISKA: Terezi, please. Let’s not 8icker in front of the party. 
VRISKA: We need to 8e showing solidarity here! 
TEREZI: W3 DO? 
VRISKA: Yes. We are equally important to the party as its overarching executives. The ones with the most experience in the department of guile and ruthlessness. 
VRISKA: I may project my voice louder than you, and 8orrow the spotlight for a little longer, 8ut you were always the soul of Team Scourge! 
VRISKA: I couldn’t 8e doing this without you. I wouldn’t even want to! 
TEREZI: 4W 
TEREZI: Y34H, OK 
TEREZI: YOU'R3 R1GHT… 1’M B3H1ND YOU 4LL TH3 W4Y! 


Their actions:

DAVE: vris yo nobodys arguing with you on that everybody here thinks hes pretty cool 
ARQUIUSPRITE:   
DAVE: like just enough freakshow steps removed from being my bro i guess enough to make me not feel like- 
VRISKA: Dave, don’t interrupt either. 
VRISKA: No8ody’s allowed to interrupt me when I’m talking up Arquiusprite! That’s the rule. 

ARQUIUSPRITE:  But if I may suggest, neigh, perhaps, command?
ARQUIUSPRITE:  You should prototype the two royal bloods and be done with it 
ARQUIUSPRITE:  They deserve it 
VRISKA: No!!!!!!!! 
VRISKA: Arquius, your reserv8tion is noted, 8ut the hemospectrum is 8ullshit. 
VRISKA: It’s not going to factor into this decision! 
ARQUIUSPRITE:  I STRONGLY disagree, but also, sort of don’t care 
ARQUIUSPRITE:  As you were 

their knowledge,

TEREZI: 1 KNOW W3 T4LK3D 4 LOT OF STR4T3GY 1N 4DV4NC3, VR1SK4 
TEREZI: BUT 1 R34LLY DON’T R3M3MB3R YOU M3NT1ON1NG 4 PL4N TO PROTOTYP3 OUR FR13NDS’ CORPS3S 
TEREZI: M1GHT H4V3 B33N N1C3 TO G3T 4 H34DS UP!

VRISKA: Yeah, sorry! 
VRISKA: I had a lot of logistics 8uzzing around in my 8rain. 
VRISKA: It’s hard to keep you apprised of EVERYTHING that crosses my mind. 

their attentiveness,

DAVE: karkat 
DAVE: yo karkat 
KARKAT: WHAT!!!!!! 
DAVE: oh my god 
DAVE: dude were you just not listening to any of that 
KARKAT: TO WHAT? 
KARKAT: WHAT 
KARKAT: WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW? 
DAVE: hahaha 
DAVE: man how long have you been tuning all this shit out 
DAVE: i mean i literally just said i dont give a fuck about any of the shit vriska is saying so maybe im not one to talk but at least i had the decency to actually be joking about that 

their importance

KARKAT: HEY, LOOK 
KARKAT: I KNOW I’M NOT CONSIDERED “IMPORTANT” ENOUGH TO BE “IN THE LOOP” ON CERTAIN KEY TACTICAL DECISIONS ANYMORE 
KARKAT: AND THAT I DON’T REALLY KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON MOST OF THE TIME AND THEREFORE AM FORCED TO TAKE ANY BULLSHIT THAT HAPPENS WITH A GRAIN OF SNACK MINERAL BIG ENOUGH TO BLUDGEON A MAN TO DEATH 
KARKAT: BUT IF IT’S NOT TOO MUCH TROUBLE VRISKA, MAYBE YOU COULD TAKE A MOMENT TO EXPLAIN WHY TAVROS IS NOW A SPRITE?! 

DAVE: it sounds like youre just like 
DAVE: being the leader now cause you want to 
DAVE: and making all the plans because nobody else wants to or really cares 
DAVE: i mean not that i even care either i just want to set the record straight 

RKAT: WOW! HAHA, HA, HAHAHAHA! ME LEADER?? TOO FUNNY! 
KARKAT: I AM ENTIRELY AND SINGULARLY BAFFLED THAT IT COULD STILL EVEN *OCCUR* TO ANYONE TO ENTERTAIN THE NOTION THAT I MIGHT STILL BE PLAYING *ANY* ROLE EVEN WITHIN SNIFFING ORBIT OF A LEADERSHIP POSITION OF THIS RIDICULOUS PARTY. 
KARKAT: WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME I DID *ANYTHING* OF A LEADER-LIKE NATURE, WITHOUT BEING TRUMPED BY VRISKA’S MACHIAVELLIAN LIMELIGHT GLUTTONY? 
KARKAT: OR FOR THAT MATTER, WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME THERE WAS ACTUALLY ANYTHING LEADERY *TO* DO, THAT DIDN’T INVOLVE SNUGGLING UP ON THE COUCH TO WATCH “GOOD LUCK CHUCK” FOR THE FIVE HUNDREDTH TIME?! 
KARKAT: I HAVE SERIOUSLY JUST BEEN ASSUMING HER COMPLETE TAKEOVER OF ALL LEADERSHIP DUTIES WAS SOME FAIT ACCOMPLI SHIT FOR THREE SOLID YEARS, AND HAVE SINCE BEEN ENJOYING THE PEACE AND QUIET OF ZERO RESPONSIBILITIES, WHICH IS WHY QUITE FRANKLY, I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO KEEP MY BLOOD PRESSURE DOWN, AND NOW RESEMBLE THE LIVING EMBODIMENT OF PEACE AND FUCKING TRANQUILITY WHICH PRESENTLY BASKS BEFORE YOU IN A STATE OF FROTHING, EUPHORIA-HOBBLED TURDVANA!!!!!!!! 

I could go on and on with the examples, and these are only from the first few pages! It just continues—the characters are losing their Light, and are becoming steeped in Void. And why might that be?

Vriska Serket is a Thief of Light! It’s in her job description—she steals Light from others and takes it for herself. Now Vriska is the leader, now Vriska is the one in the spotlight, now Vriska is the one who knows what’s happening! We’ve never seen her take on this kind of Light before—before, she focused on stealing the spotlight, yes, but not in this way! She stole Luck and treasure, but not agency, or at least not in this quantity! Over these three years, she has drained the team of their Light.

Why? I can’t say for sure. At a guess, I would say that it happened slowly, no god tier majyyks involved here. After the events of Cascade, my bet would be that the kids and trolls were pretty freakin’ worn out. The kids had just had a tumultuous couple of days (or weeks, for Dave), constantly running around, dying, becoming possessed, having their family members killed…who wouldn’t need to have a break? And the trolls, the trolls! They’d finished their session extraordinarily rapidly (I forget the exact amount of time), and then had been plunged straight into time shenanigans, and not to mention, horrorstuck! Again, pretty traumatic, even for trolls. So, while the kids and trolls want to ease back, just for a little bit…Vriska doesn’t need to. And at first, I’m sure that they’d be happy to let Vriska take care of things while they got their shit together, but Vriska is a Thief, and she kept that agency that they gave up. And slowly, slowly, she took more and more until they were all stumbling in the Void, looking towards her as a beacon of Light.

BUT! I don’t think that all is lost for our precious children. Because we may have a Thief of Light, but we also have…

A Rogue of Void.

The Thief of Light steals agency and importance from others, yes, but what does the Rogue of Void do? The Rogue of Void takes irrelevance and meaninglessness from those who have too much of it…and redistributes it to those who have too little.

I believe that Roxy and John’s appearance will trigger a shift of events, sudden or insidious, that will begin to transfer the lack of agency that the others have to the agency-heavy Vriska, so that everything evens out. How? I’m not quite sure, but I’m fairly certain that it is gonna play out something along those lines.

jaiboob?

what a newb…! lmao

Jaibo and his boyfriend…i don’t remember their name were pretty old flight rising members that started out as okay, turned obnoxious, turned nazi loving, troll, “we smell our own farts” pieces of shit over a short period of time. they both ended up getting banned for reasons i don’t remember. i think it was multi accounting because a lot of people thought jaibo and his boyfriend were just one person. a theory that is really believable if you ever talked to them personally.

they were friends with the most racist person to ever grace the tag - groovie. iMm sure you know who that is.

but anyway, fr tumblr has phases of bad people. eventually the current asshole gets pushed out and a new one shows up.

I found a post that annoyed me deeply. The post is called "How to create couple with chemistry" And SS was mentioned as a unbalanced couple. She/He said: "Example of weak balance: Sasuke and Sakura (Naruto), he's way more powerful than her, he doesn’t respect her as a ninja, he doesn’t like working with her. He tried killing her more than once and was never sorry about that. She accepts being overshadowed. She lacks character development compared to Sasuke" WTF MAN. Help me pls. Greetings Au!!.

Wtf indeed.

“He’s way more powerful than her” - So what? That didn’t seem to be an issue with NaruSaku.

“He doesn’t respect her as a ninja” - Really? Sasuke’s shown her some of the most respect as a ninja in the entire series:

“He doesn’t like working with her” - Says who?

“He tried killing her more than once and was never sorry about it” - I’m pretty damn sure they were trolling here, because surely they can’t be serious:

“She accepts being overshadowed” - Sakura was very explicitly angered by Naruto’s attempts to push her to the sidelines. So she’s obviously not content with being overshadowed at all:

“She lacks character development compared to Sasuke” - By that logic, the same could be said for literally the entire cast. But Sakura’s development was great for all those who bothered to notice how she transformed from a girl who cowered in the face of adversity, to the world’s strongest Kunoichi who doesn’t take shit from anyone:

So yeah, I don’t know what on earth that person was talking about :S
