reason for existing

All can be deducted to that which is logical, necessary and fruitful, as these are the three conditions for perpetuity. Together they are the sole components creating the core of existence. Any other concept is either fantasy, or temporary; both insignificant in the grander scheme of things. Interesting distractions, but not part of the constant one needs to establish the truth behind the reason for existence. What answer do you get to one of life’s greatest questions, when you deduct all using these three core components?

You’re right. We don’t know how to fight it. We don’t know when it’ll come. We can’t run, can’t hide. Can’t pretend it’s not the end, ‘cause it is. Something’s always been there to try and destroy the world. We’ve beaten them back. But, we’re not dealing with them anymore. We’re dealing with the reason they exist. Evil. The strongest. The First. I’m beyond tired. I’m beyond scared. I’m standing on the mouth of hell and it is gonna swallow me whole. And it’ll choke on me. We’re not ready? They’re not ready. They think we’re gonna wait for the end to come, like we always do. I’m done waiting. They want an apocalypse? Well, we’ll give 'em one. Anyone else who wants to run, do it now, 'cause we just became an army. We just declared war. From now on we won’t just face our worst fears, we will seek them out. We will find them and cut out their hearts one by one until the First shows itself for what it really is. And I’ll kill it myself. There is only one thing on this earth more powerful than evil, and that’s us. Any questions?

Y’know, I really enjoy the concept of Clark Kent.

Like, minus the whole superman aspect.

because, like, okay I can buy that maybe he can disguise himself well enough to hide the fact that he’s superman, but i doubt any amount of slouching and glasses wearing can truly disguise that he’s a very tall EXTREMELY muscular man with a jawline that can cut glass.

So basically this newspaper office has this guy who looks like a weightlifter/supermodel just hanging around but he wears glasses and acts like a huge nerd and everyone just goes with it???

Like “Oh yeah, that’s Clark. No no he works here. Oh no don’t bother being intimidated by him, talk to him for five minutes and he’ll devolve into a lecture on proper tractor maintenance. We like Clark.”

 I wonder if the ladies in the office ever drag him with them to bars so they don’t have to worry about creeps trying to harass them like “back off creeps our friend here is 6′4″ and grew up chucking hay bales” 
And then it’s funny because (as far as they know) Clark is like, the meekest lil nerd around. (He don’t look it though!!!!)

It’s just incredible to me that Clark Kent can pull off being a quiet harmless dork while still looking like, well, superman.

Happy birthday to our dearest maknae prince, Oh Sehun! Looking back at your pre-debut photos, it doesn’t look like you’ve changed much at all- you are still the same, handsome boy. During the past 2 years, we have seen you grow not only height wise but talent wise as well. However, you still remain as the same boy who laughs at immature things,tortures his hyungs every day and yet prays for them every night. Your eyes still crease upwards when you’re happy, you clap like a seal when excited, you frown out of habit and you manage to bring a smile to so many people’s faces every single day.

On this day, i would like to thank your parents for raising such an angelic boy. May you continue to work harder to make them, as well as everyone else around you proud. Please stay happy and healthy and may all wonderful things come your way (after all, great things happen to great people, right?)I love you! 

the greatest lie ever sold in dragon age is that it is about mages versus templars.

it’s mages vs an oppressive organization that jails and abuses mages, leashes templars with lyrium and conditions them to abuse their charges, and find ways to screw over any race that isn’t human and rain exalted marches against people that follow religions that threaten to overtake them, all in the name of the maker and the ‘greater good’.
