such a smart thing to do

Your Liam is a daddy now

you are all fishing for my reaction for like days now oh my god. okay to settle this, first of all - congrats liam, I hope this child makes you very happy. I’ll be super honest here, and won’t discuss this after saying it once so here we go: I do not understand this decision of his, I think it’s ridiculous, and the weirdest thing he could have done with his life, I don’t think it’s a smart move for his career at all. he is twenty-three and as a 23-year-old myself… I’m baffled by him, such a romantic guy and a person who is really into commitment and giving his all to a relationship and then to decide to have a baby after such a short time with a girl who is so much older than him, and then not even marry her before or at least get engaged. it’s weird, it’s not like him, it’s something I don’t understand but accept as a thing that happened. that said, most of my interest and deep longing for liam was based on thirst. there’s no point in me pretending it wasn’t because there is way too much proof of it on my blog for everyone to discover. so him having a baby… I knew that it was coming and all but like the actual photo kind of made any and all interest I had in him evaporate. I still love him, I still wish him the best, I still think the world of him, but the attraction is gone, and my interest was mainly based on me being attracted to him. this will sound shallow and I will get shit for this (I don’t care, I have zero policy for bullshit here so this is what I think and what you’ll get) but it’s the truth and it’s going to be visible in his sales and in his future projects because stars in the genre he is aiming at that are in the making should be available… you can’t be singing something like “just grab a room I swear no one will interfere girl bring your friends if you want we can share” (not saying it will be that explicit but still) and holding a baby bottle in the other hand. I will always support him, I think that goes for all of them as I love them dearly, but that extraness I had for him is gone and I cannot make myself be into him being a dad however I look at it. 

“I wish, you know? She’s not even my girlfriend, but I was naive enough to believe, that we could be together one day. But then she literally disappeared and at first I was worried, but now I’m almost 100% sure she just got bored of me, just like everyone else. Seriously, what’s wrong with me? It’s so easy for everyone else to find somebody to love, why can’t I?”

“You’re perfectly fine, Fawn. I know we’ve known each other for not too long, but I already can say you deserve better, than this girl and it’s her loss if she doesn’t want to be with you! If I were her, I’d never do such thing, you’re a beautiful, smart girl, Fawn. Don’t let anyone ever feel like you’re not good enough, because the truth is, you’re just too good.”

Wow that npr/radio lab piece on wrestling was super fascinating. The idea of real life being injected into fake storylines, sometimes by choice but sometimes terrible things just happening. What's real, what's fake, what's real but manipulated into the fake story, how the fake story changes because of real things happening behind the scenes. And smart fans, being clued in on the fakeness... I think that's all stuff we can relate to as a fandom. Very interesting.

Wasn’t it though?  When he was talking about the way fans (of wrestling) know that it’s fake, but watch for occasional incidents of truth and reality among the fiction.

It just really described what we are doing right now in this fandom and truthfully, in any fandom. Not every fandom is “scripted” like wrestling, but they are all performance art and the “smart fans” watch for moments that are real life leaking into the planned set list or interview or whatever.

I highly recommend that people listen to this podcast episode. It’s only around 30 minutes, and it’s very worth it.

Don't you think “misanthropic white kid develops a god complex and attempts to ‘cleanse’ society” could be an intentional thematic point, considering he's being opposed by a black detective? It feels like they're doing that on purpose, because really, an American set remake of Death Note is super relevant in today's world if they tackle that sort of thing.

I see where you’re coming from, but at the same time, I feel like that would take a lot more nuance and subtlety than we usually see in American anime adaptations. I really hope we can all be pleasantly surprised, but I kinda have a feeling that the same production that thought “Light Turner” was a good idea is probably just going to blunder its way through all of this and make something disappointing.

anonymous asked:

Can you tell us more about Chulada?

Sure! Chulada (a nickname really, means ‘pretty’ in slang spanish, his real name is Naim) is Bri’s littermate, bloodline speaking he is her true brother, not Karel (Bri picked Karel up three years down the road) 

Chulada is a jaguar though unlike Bri he’s got normal pigment and came out fairly healthy, he’s one of the biggest jaguars in the Dome and quickly becomes a favorite for his chill flair. He’s skilled and EXTREMELY smart–like he can read people like a kid’s book and figure them out in a heartbeat, as such he’s pretty talented at manipulating others and with his natural charm he rarely has to do things for himself–letting an admirer or some lower ranking kid do things for him. He’d be atop the leaderboard if his potential wasn’t squandered by his laziness, not really being into impressing individual people or excelling at anything–either out of spite/boredom for his teachers or others. 

In conversation he lets others do the talking for him, knowing what words to say to keep things going. His popularity however has meant that he’s needed to stay as far from Bri as possible to remain drama-free in the eyes of other Jauria. So while he interacts with her sometimes, it’s in an extremely aloof, almost dismissive manner. Bri looks up to him A LOT and tries to get his approval, though very rarely earns it and it’s more that he throws her a bone so she’ll get off his ass for a while.

He’s a very good combatant and can overpower most other jaguars, though he’s not much for competition or drama so he stays out of the way. He’s got a very cool head on his shoulders but is very sensitive to conflict–a bottler and grudge-holder you don’t want to get on his bad side as it takes a lot for him to explode but usually he just cuts off contact if you irritate him. He rarely grows close to people and likes to keep things casual–the less the knows the better and viceversa. He’s bored by commitment and though he’s got a few people he tries to impress (senior jaguars and mentors) he doesn’t go out of his way to make anyone’s day brighter. 

For his ability, popularity and natural charisma he gets into Cejo’s senior jaguar cool-kids club and since it’s made his relationship with Bri far more strenuous as Cejo hates her guts above everybody elses…

Overall a cool guy if you like to party and have one night-stand offs, but don’t expect him to do anything for you. 

Sorry, SPOILERS for Season 5, Episode 4: "End Times" because I need to vent and I don't want to wait until the episode airs to do it. I don't know how to put things under the cut, so if you don't want to be spoiled then scroll fast!!!!

So…Mikey literally saves the freaking world, and not an iota of appreciation or praise was given to him for it…

They just…completely ignored what he just did. None of the characters acknowledge it at all.

Saving the world, apparently, is no big deal!

The sad thing is…I totally saw that coming. I knew he was going to save the day, and that it was going to be completely ignored or hand-waved away like some fluke. Because they ALWAYS do that to Mikey!

Mikey’s been shown over and over and over again to be almost as smart of Donnie; not only showing genuine interest and support of Donnie’s passion for science and of his creations, but also being consistently shown as have a much better working knowledge and understanding of science as opposed to Raph and Leo ( with the turtle in blue only caring if it’s relevant to a mission). He’s almost as smart as Donnie, maybe even on the same level as Donnie, with the difference being that his ADHD makes it hard to remember things and/or express them in a way that people can follow. He clearly knows what he’s talking about, but can only express it in Mikey-speak. Ya know, like how Donnie expresses his smarts in textbook Donnie-speak!

They both get blank stares in response to their info dumps on the others, but only one of them is taken seriously and respected for it despite the fact that they’ve both showcased how smart they are! And they’ve both repeatedly utilized their smarts to save their brothers/save the day as well.

Mikey’s been shown to have good intuitive “ninja vibes”, but that’s never taken seriously either. Nevermind the fact that everyone’s super attentive when April’s spidey-sense gets riled up though. Even before she got trained her early “ninja vibes” were pretty much always listened to by the others, while Mikey’s (despite usually being right on the mark) are scoffed at and/or ignored.

I laugh a little when I see Donnie fans complaining that he doesn’t get enough appreciation. Because while I agree, as a Donnie fangirl too, that he works his ass off and Leo was a massive ungrateful jerk towards him in S3 and he didn’t always get the thanks he deserved to get (remember when he saved Raph’s life, but Leo was the one who got the awed appreciative look and thank you from Raph for merely sitting by the hot head’s bedside while he was unconscious?). At least Donnie is thanked by other members of the family for everything he’s done, and is told that his hard work is appreciated. He gets praised for his contributions to the team. It might not happen enough to make some of his fangirls happy, but you can’t sit there and pretend like he’s ignored, unappreciated, and underestimated the way Mikey is (Donnie himself is one of the biggest culprits of doing this to Mikey).

If Donnie saved the world, he’d get praised for it. So would Raph for that matter. Leo doesn’t even have to do anything, and he’d still get the praise!

But the finale of the Kavaxas arc just proved what I’ve been saying (and complaining about) for a few years now…Mikey’s contributions are hardly acknowledged, they’re largely ignored which is beyond ridiculous at this point! This has been happening since the beginning of the show’s run, and I feel us Mikey fangirls have good (100% valid) reasons to be salty about it! I’m sorry if you’re sick of hearing it, but if it was your favorite character this kept happening too I bet you’d be salty about it too. Just saying.

I’m not saying Mikey’s perfect, because he’s not. Even though I feel he’s been blamed for stuff that wasn’t actually his fault (Donnie’s brain drain incident-where Mikey was blamed for ruining Donnie’s work when nothing Donnie was working on was damaged or compromised in any way when the accident occured-this episode is also another fine example of Mikey showing off his smarts and saving his brother only to have his hard work be completely dismissed), I do admit that he’s messed up and has been in the wrong at times too. I fully acknowledge that Mikey’s flawed, just like his brothers are (even if Leo’s put on a blooming pedestal as if he weren’t-I have salty feelings about that, just like the rest of the fandom apparently, but that’s a rant for another day)…I’m just tired of this being done to Mikey over and over and over and over again.

Mikey literally saving the freaking world, using his own unique creative cleverness to do it, only to have his heroics be 100% blown off immediately after he did it (as if it never happened) is just the straw that broke the camel’s back to me.

ANNOUNCEMENT FOR ALL ARMYS

BTS, and more specifically Jimin, have been recieveing death threats. It has been all over social media, and I wanted to inform everyone that you should NOT engage in an argument with these people. It fuels their hate and makes them do more terrible things. If you come across one of these accounts (whether it be on Tumblr, Instagram, Twitter, etc.) please report them. Send your love to BTS and inform BigHit of the situation. Be smart and stay safe.

Orange Raider: Can’t you FIX this damned thing already? I thought you were the tech guy.

Green Raider: Oh yeah, let me just break this government issue tech that has literally been unhackable until Lona decided to join us and literally crap all over my skill with some computer codes from the old world. It’s not like you came in here AND SHOT A DAMN HOLE IN THE THING!

Orange: HEY! Those idiots decided to try to pick a fight with Bad Ass Barley. Should have just stood still and took it if they wanted to protect the damned thing.

Green: Oh yeah? Well because of Dip Stick Barley, the gawd damned generators gonna explode if I can’t figure this thing out. Held together with paperclips and rubber bands it is. How the hell was this Stable still sealed with dip sticks running around fixin’ all the complex things with the smart people doing all the easy stuff?

Barley: Hell I don’t know. Why didn’t you just grab Lona’s computer stuff anyways?

Green: Because Stable tech security kicked in and once she was shot in the damned face everyone was in a damned fire fight! How about you go grab it while I make sure the thing DOESN’T EXPLODE!?

Barley: Because I’m doing something important.

Green: DIP STICK, YOU ARE LITERALLY DOIN’ NOTHIN’ BUT COMPLAININ’!

Barley: Screw you!

(They continue to bicker.)

How big of a cage does one need for two rats? Do you have any brand/material recommendations?

As big as you can afford or get ahold of, honestly. Rats are smart, inquisitive little things. They’ll use all the space you give them! The absolute bare minimum size would be about four square feet of floor space for two rats (for example, a cage that is two feet long by two feet wide) and ideally just as tall, because rats like to climb, too. But honestly, the bigger the better. 

I’ve heard Martin’s Cages are decent and the price is pretty good.
Critter Nations are fabulous, but have a much higher price point.
And then there’s a bunch of off brands on amazon that you can dig through, just keep an eye out for bar spacing (it needs to be smaller than an inch) and check out customer reviews before you buy them. 

not gonna lie the way fandom depicts Lance as flawless beautiful being turns me off

let him not be academically smart? it doesn’t mean he’s a Big Dumb just because it’s canon that he’s not doing so well in Garrison. Let him be people smart.

And even if he’s a big dumb in canon? I personally support him having flaws like that. It makes him relatable instead of fandom’s flawless lance.

ALSO remember when people got mad that a writer said Lance cheated his way into Garrison? Immediately saying “UGH HE’S NOT STUPID”

IM LIKE “Dude, the kid fucking cheated the government” how is being academically smart the only thing you care about holy shit

anonymous asked:

Is it possible to have learned to suppress traits without having been bullied for them? I may have been teased a little but nothing too much but I always seemed to have an instinct that these things are just things I need to hide and that I have to blend in. Do you think maybe I'm just forgetting times in which I was made fun of for certain traits that led to me suppressing them? Or is it possible to learn to suppress for other reasons?

It’s possible to learn to suppress them simply through observation. Kids are smart and will pick up on a lot more than adults give them credit for. As a kid you likely noticed that some of the things you did were things that no one else you knew did. You may have noticed that kids who were different got picked on by others. Through this observation you could have concluded that the things that were different about you needed to be hidden in order to avoid being bullied. This could have all been subconscious. 

So yes, it is possible to suppress autistic traits for reasons other than bullying/abuse.

That long article about blog terminations circa 2014 made me so nostalgic about tumblr ofc, but also my teen years in general. Yeah I am still a teen at 19 years old, but as a sophomore in college looking back at the beginning of this journey in my sophomore year of high school I just feel very strange about it all. It’s been 4 years, and I shamefully still read fics which is why I got on tumblr in the first place and that’s whatever, but like this was such a thing…a major thing…that article talks about how the “weird smart kids” from their towns connected with the weird smart kids from other towns to create this dadaist absurdist humor in which self-deprecation was key but internally in private conversations a world of emotional vulnerability was fostered and people felt less alone and that’s so true

but at the same time I’m definitely looking at it with this nostalgic rose-tinted lens because though tumblr helped me realize that a lot of people feel the same way about things that I do, it made me so much more critical of myself like the explosion of hate and obsession with getting attention from followers was not good and the good thing about separating from the internet world is recognizing that nothing is ever that deep lmao and no one is ever going to be that hypercritical of you so pretty bittersweet 

definitely the coolest thing though is getting to see what all of the people I was once really close friends with on this site are doing with their lives like it just contributes to the whole idea of normal people feel the things that I do and that’s fine and we’re all great and will have great lives

tag game

I was also tagged by @runsonchoc to do another tag game

One insecurity: it used to be my looks, but i guess my biggest insecurity is not being smart enough for law (eventhough I already have my bachelor degree and my boss keeps telling me that i am doing such a good job)

Two fears: flying and that someone in my closet family dies

Three turn-ons: confidence, kindness and intelligence

Four life goals: get my master with kinda good grades, get a dog, get kids and then i want to be able to use my education to help people in need

Five things I like: going on long walks, reading, playing computer, shopping and tumblr

Six weaknesses: use to much money, i am kinda lazy, messyhead, my whiplash injury, i am always tired and i hate mornings

Seven things I love: running, my big family, watching tv shows, going out with the bf, my study, eating and the sweet tumblr community

Eight Blogs: @mystoryfortheaudienceoftheworld, @lifecapturedbyrobert, @running-a-fitblr, @fatgirlgetsfitatlast, @sir-rubberlegs, @staystrong-andhealthy, @coffeeandfitblr and @quadsasaurus-rex

i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again but like…the obsession some of y’all have with the stranger things kids is creepy. like obviously they’re all very talented and smart kids, but that’s what they are: kids. and it’s so creepy that so many of you think it’s okay to call 13 year old millie bobby brown “goals” and spend your time tracking her social media and gushing over her physical appearance the way you do with adult celebrities. it’s creepy that so many of you think it’s okay to call 14 year old finn wolfhard “daddy” and talk about how “hot” he’s gotten since the start of the show like…the fact that so many people can’t seem to appreciate/admire the talent of these kids without being creepy and predatory is so disturbing

“Davii Eckhart, I have a few questions for you.”


“I have some answers,” Davii responded. “What’s up?”


“Did you ever think that by Caleb Gray uploading his own finale of Sim Star Chef that he did the right thing?”


“Hell yeah. Look at this. This is the red carpet for Sim Star, and it has nothing to do with Gino. This is thanks to Caleb. He made something messed up into something great. I especially love the parody feel he gave to it, by changing the name.”


“Copyright claims, I have no doubt.”


“Yeah, he’s hella smart. He’s done this against Gino before, right? I could tell. His genius really showed through. I just hope they give the winner a restaurant. Or, a job at least.”

why do i gotta ask for people to let this 30 yr old man live his 30 yr old life. like. drink a beer phil. call dan a cheeky fucking cunt when he’s being an idiot phil. make a disgusting sex joke that’s so bad it’s funny phil. live ur life. do it for me babe. im sorry people still treat you like a 15 year old scene kid who wants to fuck a plant.

Ravenclaws probably have, overall as a house, the worst grades in the school tbh. 

Take wrong turns. Talk to strangers. Open unmarked doors. And if you see a group of people in a field, go find out what they are doing. Do things without always knowing how theyโ€™ll turn out.
Youโ€™re curious and smart and bored, and all you see is the choice between working hard and slacking off. There are so many adventures that you miss because youโ€™re waiting to think of a plan. To find them, look for tiny interesting choices. And remember that you are always making up the future as you go.
