stunt life

ik some people don’t understand exactly how much anxiety can irrationally prevent you from doing things, even easy things, or how much it can completely stunt your life… it’s garbage tbh and it’s not the same as being nervous, it’s not something you can necessarily just push through, you can be confident in some ways and terrified of other things for reasons that might not even make sense to you, and telling someone to “get over it” is practically a guarantee you’re making them feel even worse, so… yeah

¿Quién es Sombra? A character analysis (Overwatch)

Originally posted by daftprodigy

So I’ve been watching the reveal of Sombra over and over again (as ya do), and I couldn’t help but notice some details that say a lot about her personality, worldview, and just how fucked up of a character she is. In the brief time we’ve seen her, Blizzard has already developed her into one of the most fleshed-out characters in all of Overwatch. Piecing together details from her short and her backstory video, we can begin to get a fairly clear picture of how she thinks. And needless to say, it’s very interesting, fucked up, and in a way, kind of tragic.

More below the cut. It’s a really long post, so be warned.

Headcanon that Ray comes off as the most passive member, never really doing crazy stuff. But it’s a little known fact that he is the one who provokes the others to do the crazy. He gives the idea and watches as they do it, works every time

Ray wants to watch TV but the others are hogging it. “Dude, sweet headshot. Wouldn’t it be cool if you could do that stunt in real life?” “Of course you can’t fucking do this shit in real life, Ray.” “I don’t know, Michool, you probably could.” “No you fucking can’t! That’s not how physics works!” the next thing you know money is getting bet, supplies are gathered, Geoff’s getting drunk enough to watch this shit, and in the span of fifteen or twenty minutes everyone’s out the door and Ray has the TV all to himself.

Ray’s bored and nobody is willing to get their asses handed to them in CoD. “Hey, Michael, what would even happen if you hit one of those smoke bombs you made with a baseball bat?” “Why would you ask that?” “Wait, no, now I’m curious.” “Ryan, you’re not hitting one of my smoke bombs with a baseball bat!” “Not without getting filmed he’s not.” “Jack, no!” “Jack yes!” “Are you saying a baseball bat is going to wreck your bomb?” “Fuck you, Ray, I’m saying the bat will probably break.” “So there’s no real problem because it won’t even go off?” “We’re not hitting it with a bat!” “If it won’t break, I don’t see why not. Unless it will break.” “Fuck you, Ramsey, I know how to make bombs, it won’t fucking break and I’ll prove it to you!” and now he’s entertained.

The heist is actually going well for once. “Dude, this is so smooth I bet I could do this all one handed.” “Ray, please don’t finish the heist one handed.” “Yes, Mom.” “I don’t know, I think Ray can do it.” “What? No, Gavin shut up, I’m not going one handsy. Gatta jerk myself off with something at the end of the day.” “Well I bet I could do it.” “Gavin, don’t be an idiot.” “Yeah, no, that’s a really dumb idea.” “No! I think I can really do it!” “I’m with Gavin on this one,” “Jeremy, why?” “You going one handed with me, Lil’ J?” “Hell yeah, Gav.” Ray groans. Why does he have to open his fucking mouth?

This Tumblr thing and answering questions...

So, I haven’t managed figuring out how to reply on people’s replies to my posts and they will see them… If anyone know, please let me know! :-) 
But Morten, a fellow student a mine, asked how the facilities where I work is. 
The head office in Dhaka is a three-story building located in one of the diplomatic zones of Dhaka called Gulshan 2. Even though I live less than 800 meters from my office on a good day it takes 5 minutes to get here by car, but since infrastructure is horrible it most days takes around 15 minutes… Head of Security have provided me with 3 different routes I should vary between - just to be on the safe side ;-)
My office is on the 3rd floor and is in the Urban Program department, I sit together with Nova Shams who is Head of Sponsorship Communications and Shahnawaz Whara who is Specialist-Urban Disaster Risk Reduction.

I also have the possibility to sit outside and read while I’m enjoying the fact that it’s just below 30 degrees during the day!

My college supervisor Chen has asked about the school system in Bangladesh and if the ECD program was more like a kindergarten. Children in Bangladesh start attending school in the age of 6 years old. The primary education (grade 1-5) in Bangladesh is free of charge for all children, but since there is not enough space to accommodate all local children in the primary schools most government schools have “double shifts”. That means half of the students attend school in the morning and the other half attend in the afternoon. Because of that, most children only spend 3-4 hours in the classroom per day. Furthermore, there is a lack of teachers at the government schools and to compensate for that high-school graduates can apply for teaching positions – meaning almost 1/3 of teaching staff does not have a Certificate in Education!
In Bangladesh, it takes an average of 8.5 years for a child to complete grade 1-5 simply because students fail to memorize facts and they do not meet the required curriculum skills – even if they complete primary school it does not mean that they have gained the right competencies to continue to Secondary Education (grade 6-12).
Regarding the second question yes, the ECD program is like what we would call daycare and kindergarten. One reason why both are highly important in a country like Bangladesh is that almost 40% of children living in the slum are stunted. Stunting means a child will have impaired growth and development caused by poor nutrition, repeated infections and inadequate psychological stimulation. If a child’s height-for-age is below the WHO Child Growth Standards median with more than 2 standard deviations, this child is defined as stunted. Since the first 3 years of a child’s life is the most important time for brain capacity and development is it most critical that these children get stimulation. Research have shown that by addressing both stimulation and nutritional needs can reverse or prevent stunting, improve the child’s school readiness and help the child to grow to their full potential in life. Imagine if it how much better the school system would be if an average of the children did not use an extra of 3.5 year to complete the primary education?


Can we please talk about how Buster Keaton would have made an amazing Rattmann. 

  • Unimposing, Greek-nosed nerd
  • Whole gimmick involves escaping elaborate, near-fatal situations with even more elaborate, near-fatal stunts. 
  • Resting “done with life” face
  •  Quietly trying to hold his own against the general shitstorm that is his day-to-day existence

“Coffee stunts growth.” 

“Your existence stunts my life expectancy.” 

“You smoke!” 

“You suck.” 

Neil was smiling. Kevin huffed and turned away from Andrew. Fighting with Andrew was like talking to a 5 year old. Logic never worked. 

“Can I drink the coffee, Kevin?” 

“Eat an apple, Neil.”

“I did,” he whined, “but I’m still so sleepy.” He was pouting. 

“Caffeine isn’t good for you. Especially in the long run. It affects your stamina and concentration and yes it does, in fact, stunt your growth -” 

“Matt!” Andrew yelled out their open door. Kevin turned to him, his brow scrunched. 

“What, do you need Boyd’s opinion on the matter?” 

“Fuck off, Day.” 

“You called?” Matt said from their doorway.

“Do you drink coffee?” 

Matt looked taken aback by the inquiry, maybe more so the fact that it was coming from Andrew than anything, “Uh…N- uh, more of a tea person, actually.” 

“What the fuck is tea.” Andrew’s countenance gave away how frustrated he was. He thought for a moment, then turned on Kevin, “Nicky drinks coffee.”

“Nicky,” Kevin countered, “-drinks sugar with a little bit of coffee in it. Which is equally-” 

“For fuck’s sake -” Andrew turned to Neil, “Drink the damn coffee and fuck what he says.” Andrew grabbed his pack and made his way towards the door, “Roof.” He threw over his shoulder, directed towards Neil.

“It’s not good for you!”

“You’re not fucking good for you!” 

…a 5 year old. 

Suits 6x14

That suits episode was gollldddd. So much Mike and Harvey interaction with banter, tension, arguing and emotion and I knew I’d missed it but damn, that hammered home just how much I missed it. And everyone is slating them for doing ‘bad things’ again but that’s just who they’ve always been. Harvey will literally do anything for Mike and likes the challenge and the risk. Mike’s been doing questionable stunts all his life, way before he met Harvey. I’m loving it and I’m so tense for next week. Gabriel killed it in that last scene.

So, apparently Japan has the steepest road in the world. I had this awesome idea at work that it would be fun to slide down that street on Steve's shield. So: Imagine Steve using (or one of his friends borrowing) as a sled to slide all the way down this street

Loud, nearly maniacal laughter could only barely be heard over the screech of metal on asphalt.

Without a doubt, even with all of the tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, Sam Wilson was performing the most rock-n-roll stunt of his life. He wished he knew what it looked like, and that he’d brought someone to take a photo, because he imagined it was wild. Sparks rained down the street on either side of him, created by the friction of the road against Captain America’s shield.

Every so often, he’d catch a little air and the threat of tumbling forward and turning the joyride into a hospital visit would make him cry out (but not scream. He was too brave to scream, after all), but it soon gave way to peals of laughter again.

Sam paid a decent amount of money to have the Eshima Ohashi bridge closed just so he could do this, and it was worth every damn penny.

When he reached the bottom, and the shield finally came to a stop, Sam fell back, still laughing while simultaneously trying to catch his breath.

“You are such an idiot.”

He opened his eyes to see the owner of the shield standing over him, arms crossed over his chest.

“Please,” he wheezed. “You jump out of planes with no parachute.”

I can't wait until Harry launches his solo career and starts doing his stuff so we can all move on from this crap. Of course some will still be here crying over Louis' life and "stunts" but more and more people will move on. Who are these "they" controlling Louis' life? Who is forcing him into the closet? Embarassing. Gay or not, Louis lives the life he wants to live and he's a grown ass man responsible for his actions. This fictional character you have created will never become reality.

I’m on mobile so if anyone wants to add a gif that fits this mess of a message please feel free. I’m not even going to comment on this otherwise.
