My country is celebrating 100 years of independence this year and we are also achieving marriage equality on the 1st of March. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our achievements as a nation than celebrating equality and human rights. Congratulations, Finland, may there be many more victories such as this and may your freedom last a thousand years!
(yes, the Finnish flag appears backwards because she’s waving it around)
As a lot of you may know, Jen & Lucie (VA’s of Pharah & Mercy) may be hanging out soon as seen on Twitter. Which also leads to the possibility of them making some fun content together in videos, like we’ve seen recently amonst other VA’s.
I just want to remind you all, 1: Please, don’t hound the VA’s to make content, say things, or harass them with ship stuff.
2: If they do make something supportive of Pharah & Mercy’s friendship/relationship. Be humble folks, don’t rub it into other ship’s faces ( you know what one i’m talking about), and remember, this isn’t canon.
Just be cool guys <3 Enjoy and be thankful for the content we’re given if we get something. We don’t want to be those types of fans. It sounds like they like the idea of them, let’s try and keep it positive for them yeah?
Buddy, pal… Ayn Rand’s novel Atlas Shrugged is considered the 2nd most influential book in American History after the Bible itself, which makes it the Most influential Fiction book. Every fiscally Conservative politician has read it and lives by Rand’s objectivism. But it’s ~just fiction~ which is why Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s entire ethos is based almost entirely in Ayn Rand’s philosophy
For context, Ayn Rand believed that Selfishness was a virtue and Empathy was by extension a vice and a form of parasitism. Putting the needs of others above your own needs was the highest form of evil her philosophy. She once described a serial killer as a “Superman” because “other people do not exist to him, nor should they.”
Now back to Paul Ryan, the man behind the gutting of the ACA, he, a conservative, says that the conservative morality is laid out in Atlas Shrugged, and he’s not the only one who believes this. Rush Limbaugh, Michelle Bachmann, Ron and Rand Paul, and basically every major Libertarian politician all cite Ayn Rand as an influence (and it’s probably why Ron Paul named his son Randall).
The entire objectivist morality is that the government is an anathema to the Individual, which is sacred.
Individuals, especially rich, selfish individuals = good
Government = bad
But sure,,,,,, fiction is fiction so it doesn’t affect the way people think,,,,,,, people can tell the difference,,,,,,,, ,,, fiction and reality are totally separate and one doesn’t influence the other,,,,,,,,,,,, obvi
A sim story about some clueless 20-30 something year olds trying to do something meaningful with their lives.
This will be a mix of story telling and gameplay! There may even be a story within a story!
A little about these 3 dudes:
PJ is a writer trying and failing to write her second novel after the success of her first. Avery isn’t sure what she wants to do with her life; one week she’s trying to be instagram famous and the next, she’s playing detective. Ezra has been in the music biz for 11 years and can’t seem to catch a break. Will they ever figure shiz out?
Random thought that might not make any sense (pardon any wrong things here):
You know how Matt was rescued by a rebel group? What if he was also trained to fight to the point where he could fight as well as the people from the Blade of Marmora? Imagine when Pidge ‘rescues’ him (or at least if Voltron forms an alliance with their group) all the sparring sessions - he’d be able to beat Keith, who’s basically the team’s best swordsman. (Pidge and Shiro’s mind would be totally blown because this is not who they knew, yet it’s still Matt.)
Or it could be that the rebel group forms an alliance with Voltron before Pidge or Shiro knew that Matt was in there. And since Matt is probably really smart (as smart or more so than Pidge probably) he’d probably get a high position in the group, like a tactician or one of the commanders. And then, what if the mission both groups are carrying out goes south. What if just then Matt from the command center realizes something wrong after staying quiet and just yells, “Something is wrong, you need to get out of there immediately!” And Pidge is taken by surprise and manages to gasp out “Matt?”
“Katie? What are you–”
“Matt, this is where you’ve been all this time–”
A voice full of awe. “Katie. You’re a paladin of Voltron. You’re… you’re crossing galaxies beyond what Earth would have even imagined, and you’re… you’re… actually making change.”
“Matt, please tell me where you are right now–”
An explosion. “Katie– Team Voltron, you need to get out immediately–”
“Matt, Matt, please–”
“Find Dad, Katie. For both of us.” A soft smile. “Tell Mom I love her.”
A whisper. “I love you.”
They don’t even get to meet because they’ve been communicating through an intercom. The signal goes flat.
Pidge stays silent for the rest of the mission. She doesn’t hear from Matt again.
So at least on my dash, nobody ever drags the xxTPs, so I'mma do it really fast bc y'all really piss me off from time to time.
Like would it kill you to NOT critique rules from time to time trying to find all the damn loopholes? Like pls can u not. LIKE SURPRISINGLY JUST BC SOMETHING DOESN’T MAKE SENSE TO YOU DOESN’T MEAN IT’S NOT SENSIBLE IN THE LONG RUN?? Like is it so hard to realize that if you take into account EVERY SINGLE tiny ass thing you guys pick out, nothing would ever get done???
Rules, laws, procedures, etc, they’re there to make things easier. And like?? Honestly fuck you, ExTPs? Stop blatantly doing the loophole thing that the rules don’t cover just because you can. Y'all are so damn full of acting like a dick while not coming up with PROPER SOLUTIONS. And you, IxTPs? Just stop. You may not outwardly defy the untold laws, but you still don’t come up with solutions like the shut in you are.
