sigh i want one

hey so i know i dont usually post about romanian things but i need to say this

so last night (yes, in the middle of the fucking night, like the filthy thieves they are) the romanian government passed a law that, basically, makes corruption legal (if its under 45k euros, which is a LOT) AND they’re going to let all the (few) people who (they barely) arrested for this out of prison… 

i know this isnt as important to america as trump, but this is HUGE to us. there were (as far as i know) 90 thousand people protesting last night (the last time there were protests this big was in 1989 when communism fell, just to give you a perspective) and there are going to be even more today

this country has had problems with corruption since the dawn of time but i dont reckon it ever being made LEGAL. i just figured id bring some awareness to this…

here and here are two sources

Poe working out with BB8 but that’s just a bad idea

it’s like one of those work outs when someone sits on your back as you pump iron but.. BB8 is.. round.. and push ups mean he needs more effort to keep on Poe’s back.. soo… silliness ensues :0 are you guys ticklish on your back? I am… to a certain degree :u

this was an interesting angle? like.. i’m quite.. inflexible with my angles and i’ve never tried work out poses.. so this was.. a challenge to some point :) -wipes brow-

i need to stop drawing them like this
but i’m probably not

also robbie will usually wake up super early like 4 or 5 ish in the morning and make a cup of coffee. he’ll come back to bed to read and fucking sporto will be hogging the whole bed

I think it would have made a lot more sense to have Luke and Lorelai have tried to have a baby years ago, but she had a miscarriage and they were too heartbroken to try again…

It’s just so frustrating that their lack of communication is the reason they don’t have kids after being together for 9 years. I find it hard to believe that after 9 years of being together without breaking up again, they still didn’t talk about important things. Also, through the magic of TV, their birth control never failed them lol. I mean it would be hard for Lorelai to become pregnant at her age, but still…

Obviously ASP & Dan/ whoever didn’t want there to be any L/L kids in the revival for whatever reason (it would change the dynamic of the show or whatever), but the fact that they wrote Luke and Lorelai wanting to have kids with each other and then the fact that is never discussed it in 9 years is crazy to me. 

The whole surrogate plot was so frustrating… I hate that Luke shut it down too.. and that they dumbed him down by having him think he would have to have sex with the surrogate *rolls eyes 

I just think it would be a better story if Emily (like what actually happened) made a comment about Luke’s wants being different from Lorelai’s, and then Lorelai could confess and tell Emily that they tried for a baby years ago and she lost it… I also think that could give us a nice moment between Lorelai and Emily…

i don’t think i’m ever going to let go of the fact that flip flappers, a beautiful, well-written story with gorgeous, colorful animation will in the end go down in the anime industry as a flop

then there are villains who are affably evil. there is absolutely nothing separating them from being normal, polite people except for the fact that they want to take over the world or use human souls to power their artifact of doom. they’re not the stepford smiler — their affability is a genuine part of their personality, not a mask. if they have underlings, expect them to be a benevolent boss. in one way, they’re the opposite of an anti-hero. they may pet the dog on occasion, but won’t hesitate to kick it with steel-toed boots the next second if it helps them accomplish their evil plan. they may well be a villain with good publicity because, after all, being evil doesn’t mean you have to be anti-social.

Nûrsot: The Sacred Sith Tree

Long before the Exiles arrived, Korriban had vast, dense forests of Nûrsot covering much of the planet’s landscape.

The trees were massive, wide, aromatically fragrant, and had impressively long branches reaching out and winding toward the sky.
It appears in many myth and legends of the ancient Sith. Most notably, it is known as the tree Ahmurn blessed and bestowed upon Marserha and their children to always bear fruit through any season, ensuring the Sith would never go hungry so long as the Nûrsot grew on Korriban.

Although the fruits the Nûrsot bore were edible and nutritious, its green leaves were toxic to the Sith in high doses.

The fruits had a slight fuzzy on the peel that could be washed and rubbed away before consumption. The could be eaten raw or utilized in a variety of recipes and cooking methods from teas to cakes to salads.
The leaves on the other hand, could be used to create various poisons and even some medicines.

Aside from the fruit and leaves, the Sith also used the wood from the branches to create art.

A common token that would be crafted were small figures of mowhefs.
(ok, i kno dis a tiger but pls work with me)

Carved from the deep, red wood of the lower branches and polished to a fine finish; the mowhef figures symbolized good luck, bountiful blessings, and if gifted, it let the recipient know of the undying love and loyalty of the giver.

Other artwork carved from the Nûrsot were used as doors, gates, pillars on buildings, or even wall hangings.

A particularly famous wooden carving from the Nûrsot depicts a battle of the Great Hyperspace War.

The frieze is currently held at the Kaas City Sith Art Museum.

A much less common use for Nûrsot wood is utilizing them for a lightsaber.

The wood is durable and light, making it an ideal material to craft a hilt or a part of one. Very few Sith over the centuries had their entire lightsaber hilts carved from the wood. It is rumored that the former Wrath had a fragment of Nûrsot wood on the hilt of his lightsaber in the shape of a fang.

Unfortunately, what was once an abundant and thriving species of tree, the Nûrsot is essentially extinct today.

With their arrival, the Exiles also brought the spores of a deadly fungus off world that infected and decimated the forests of Korriban. As the forests withered away, the Exiles burned many of the art and relics crafted from the Nûrsot wood, especially if the item depicted anything relating to the native Sith religions.

There are only three surviving specimens, and they are all currently held in heavily guarded, special facilities by the Imperial Botanical Society within the Garden District of Kaas City.

Because of their scarcity and the history associated with them, only highly distinguished Sith can obtain a piece of Nûrsot wood, even if it’s only a small one. The fruits are carefully gathered and sold in the Scarlet District once every five to seven Imperial Standard years. And any Sith alchemist or apothecary that wishes to use the leaves must get clearance from the current Councilor heading the Sphere of Biotic Science.


ok so like notes…?

“There is no rest for the one of intellect and refinement in his locality, so leave your homeland.

Travel, and you will find a replacement for that which you left, and exhaust yourself for therein is the sweetness of life.

Verily I saw water become putrid in its stagnation, and become sweet when it flows.

And the lions would not be fierce if they didn’t leave their grounds, and the arrow would not strike if it didn’t leave the bow.

And if the sun stayed in its place in the universe, people would have grown tired of it,

And if the moon did not disappear every now and then, the anticipating eye would never spare it a glance. 

And raw gold is as good as the dust that covers it, and the staff covered in dust is mere firewood.

In leaving your destiny will change, and in emigration you will become precious, like gold.

And Allah knows.”

-Imam Ash-Shafi’i, rahimahullah

i just wanna mean something to someone, is that too much to ask?
