I just discovered there isa small subredditdedicated to google-translating (and actually dubbing, very professionally!!) the Star Wars movies and occasional SWR episodes from english into chinese and back into english again, making the subtitles change ridiculously, and it’s positively the most hilarious thing I’ve ever come across since I saw the LotR post about a similar thing, here are some highlights:
i don’t even know where I’m going with this because this happened to me 10 minutes ago but i need to RANT i was walking down the street minding my own business with my headphones in (UNIversal ‘don’t talk to me or i will fight you’ signal) and this guys comes up to me and tells me he thinks I’m pretty i accept the compliment and get ready to leave but then he introduces himself i shake his hand (and he doesn’t let go for about 45 seconds - red flag numero uno) and then starts small talking w me so i go along he then asks me- wait not EVEN asks, he just takes my hand to move me to the side of the sidewalk almost into an alleyway at this point I’m like no thanks i have somewhere to go he then insists i stay and I’m like haha really no i am afraid for my safety and then he just asks me if I wanna go back to his hotel room????
you know those “i have a boyfriend” memes? picking fun at girls who always think guys are hitting on them? there is a reason girls are so fast to fend off certain people, it’s to avoid situations like THIS. Because i was talking to him he interpreted it as me being interested in him??
so from now on whenever a stranger approaches me in the street wanting to say anything to me u best believe the first words out of my mouth will be NOT INTERESTED BYE THANK YOU THOUGH
a very important compilation of the most incredible emotional breakdowns as shown by the men (and a few women, actually) of gallifreybase.com following the announcement of jodie whittaker as the 13th doctor enjoy the baby rage
they say he stole her,
as if Persephone were only something to be coveted
and not a goddess in her own right,
as if she were not as feared in their realm as he.
they say that he corrupted her,
that Hades’s flower wilted under the stench of his death
but they forget that Spring is rebirth,
that if anyone could be touched by the underworld and flourish,
that it would be her.
they say that he tricked her,
that she did not want to stay.
but they forget how the winter drags on,
how each year it creeps in sooner,
leaving bones aching for a hint of her warmth,
and it is not because he will not let her leave
it is because
she does not want to go.
a part of me
still holds onto us.
unable to let go,
unable to clear my mind of you.
unable to peel off your name
that’s engraved in my heart
and the heaviness that follows with every letter that falls
all the memories
and all the laughter.
All the love.
Not wanting to cut the cord that
connects me with you
Not wanting to forget
the way you used to look at me
and the butterflies that made it hard to breathe
but helped me learn to fly again.
Not willing to let go of the map that leads to you
cause our paths were meant to intersect
I ran in the opposite direction but
Everything leads back to you,
and the way you kissed me that night.
My first kiss, my first love.
More than anything
wanting you to be my last.
But this time seems like the last,
I need to let you go
because you already did
are not there
are not here
and I need to remind my heart
