suprem being

Eraserhead and students as things that happen in my math class. Part one

Aizawa: this might help if you fail as a hero and go into some other form of law enforcement.

Tokoyami: does being supreme leader of the universe count as law enforcement.

Aizawa: …… Yes.
Someone: says something to tease iida

Iida: what, is today pick on iida day?

Aizawa: it’s always pick on iida day.
Kaminari: Can we slow down a bit. This all makes me feel like I’m on some excruciatingly mental version of the game wipe out.

Aizawa: …..
Aizawa: and when the numbers don’t match up it goes from a straight line, to a curved line.

Kirishima: haha just like me
Aizawa: I understand that your having a bad day but please calm down.

Aizawa: Kouda please leave the room as we review the test you missed.

Kouda: *leaves*

*a while after they have graded the test there is a knock on the door*

Jirou: Hey wait is Kouda still outside?
*the room is silent as the kids work on school stuff*

Ashido: *with her headphones on* HOE DID WHAT!!!

Aizawa: what did you just say?

Ashido: sorry I thought Hagakure was talking to me.

Hagakure: I wasn’t, and you just shouted that to the whole class.
*once again the room is quiet, except for the music coming from Jirous headphones*

Aizawa: do you realize just how loud your music is.

Jirou: yes and I don’t care because my taste in music is fantastic.
Uraraka: Aizawa-sensei, Bakugou broke the leg off another chair.

Sero: I’ve got tape!

Aizawa: forget the tape, Uraraka get the super glue.

Sero: Now I just feel like a disappointment.

Wyatt, Golden Retriever (13 m/o), Central Park, New York, NY • “Wyatt the polar bear. He’s handsome. He’s delicious. He’s a supreme being.”

The “Pray for Betty White” movement is cute and all, but I think the person who really needs our prayers right now is Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a liberal member of the United States Supreme Court. Being a Jewish woman and a big advocate for women’s rights, her presence on the Supreme Court has really helped American law move towards equality. For example, Ginsburg is the first Supreme Court justice to officiate a same sex-wedding, is a big advocate for equal voting rights, and as a feminist, her voice and vote in the Supreme Court has helped protect women’s reproductive rights for years

The problem is, Ginsburg is 83 years old (the oldest member) and a cancer survivor. If she passes away, Trump will be in charge of replacing her presence on the United States Supreme Court, and you can be sure that he’ll replace her with somebody who is against everything she stands for.

At the moment, the Supreme Court consists of 4 liberal members, 3 conservative members, and Justice Kennedy, who is a conservative swing (a conservative member that occasionally sides with the liberals). The confirmation of Trump nominee Neil Gorsuch would give conservatives a potential edge of 5 to 4, which means conservatives could control what cases enter the Supreme Court for a vote, as well as the results. It only takes a simple majority of 5 votes to overturn a case. Nevertheless, we have fared well in a 4 liberal, 4 conservative, and 1 conservative swing court before. It’s not good, but not the end of the world. 


Ginsburg’s passing would give the conservatives a concrete 5 votes, and a potential 6 votes, which would give conservatives the ability to overturn any major court case, including Roe v. Wade (abortion rights) and Obergefell v. Hodges (gay marriage).

On top of that, Supreme Court justices serve life terms, so you can bet Trump will elect a YOUNG conservative, meaning conservatives have the potential to completely control the Supreme Court for GENERATIONS to come. 

So pray for Ruth Bader Ginsburg y’all.

Throwing my hat into the “headcanons about Reyes Vidal’s pre-Initiative life” ring because I love hearing all these theories:

Commercial cargo pilot. No, really. Flew transport for private companies, specialising in extremely valuable cargo: luxury goods, high-grade weapons, barely-legal tech. The sort of stuff that makes one cargo ship about as valuable as the total GDP of a small country - and a hell of a target for every pirate, gang and raider in the system, hence the need for a man who is as handy with a gun as he is with the controls. Of course, this is Reyes we’re talking about, so he’s not above skimming a little off the top for himself. Consider it danger pay. All the pilots do it. 

However, when skimming becomes more like gouging, well, those companies and all their paid goons are only going to turn a blind eye for some long. Reyes gets a little too greedy (or perhaps just careless), he starts making contacts with those people he’s supposed to be guarding against, maybe a few too many boxes fall off the back of the space-lorry, and things start getting a little too hot for his liking in the Milky Way - the people he’s pissed off don’t have friends in high places, they are the friends in high places. So he takes the first hard exit he can find and joins the Initiative, and hopes this mess doesn’t follow him 600 years across the universe.

The whole Anubis call sign thing? Utterly inconsequential. The Initiative assigned different pantheons to different squadrons, to make things easier: Reyes’ squad happened to get Ancient Egyptian (human), and he pulled Anubis. He thinks its mad corny.

I’m back and I need me a hypebeast shawty to match my flee juu hurd.

Orisha Rulers of the Zodiac

An Orisha is a spirit that reflects one of the manifestations of God. Being four hundred and one of them in total, each playing a role within the Yoruba pantheon, twelve of them can be equated to the twelve signs of the Zodiac along with their respective houses. The following is a brief summary of each Zodiac House along with the Orisha that is associated with it.

The first house of the Zodiac is the home of the Ascendant, and symbolises the acting self and how your personality appears to others. The ruling planet of this house is Mars, which is also the Roman God of war, making Ogun the warrior god the Orisha equivalent. Like Aries, Ogun possesses assertive and aggressive characteristics, and is the patron deity of soldiers, police officers, surgeons, railroad workers, welders, body builders, or anyone employed to work with iron and steel. Like the blacksmith who molds his creations to perfection, the first house deals with molding the inner and outward Self and realizing your highest potential.

Taurus is the ruling sign of the second house, which is said to be the house of possessions. This should not only be understood as material possessions but also as traits and characteristics that we value about ourselves. The ruling planet Venus is also the Roman goddess of love, whose Orisha equivalent is Oshun. Oshun is the goddess of fresh water (as opposed to the salty, ocean waters of the goddess Yemoja), sensuality, prosperity, love, and fertility. Oshun is presented as a beautiful young woman who is widely loved for providing protection and needs for the poor and healing the sick.

The third house is ruled by the cosmic twins Ibeji, the Orisha equivalent of Gemini. This house deals with communication and the way you think and operate mentally. An emphasis is put on siblings within this house which is properly represented by the twins, along with short journeys and writings. Ibeji also represents duality and balance; the yin and the yang found within all life. Though presented as twins, Ibeji is actually one Orisha. To the Yoruba people, twins are considered sacred and are said to be one soul inhabiting two bodies, linked together by destiny for life.

The fourth house of the Zodiac is ruled by Cancer and deals with issues surrounding the home life. Cancer is known for being maternal, protective, nurturing, and instinctive, qualities shared by the Orisha Yemoja, the goddess of the ocean and mother of all the Orisha. She is the patron spirit of women, especially pregnant women, whose name is a contraction of the Yoruba words “Yeye omo eja” which means “Mother whose children are like fish”, representing the vastness of her motherhood. Her ebb and flow of the tides of the ocean are a result of the moon which is the ruling “planet” of the fourth house.

The fifth house of the Zodiac is the house of creativity and pleasure, ruled by the sign Leo. This house deals with gaining pleasure through acts of creation, artistically and even procreation i.e. the creation of offspring. The Sun, the ruling “planet” of the fifth house, is a symbol of creative energy, illumination, and knowledge, all of which the Orisha of wisdom, knowledge, and divination Orunmila reflects. It is Orunmila’s duty to record the destiny of individuals at the moment the breath of life is given to them by Yoruba creator Olodumare, who creates because it brings Them pleasure to do so.

The Orisha Eshu is the ruler of the sixth house, the equivalent to the sign Virgo. Health, work, and service are central to the sixth house, which is ruled by the planet Mercury, the messenger of the gods within the Roman pantheon. Eshu is the Orisha that stands at the crossroads between the physical world and the spirit world, whose duty is to be the intermediary between man and the Orisha. Therefore, when one wishes to call upon the Orisha, he or she first gets permission from Eshu. This is symbolic of clearing and preparing the mind to receive whatever message the Orisha have for you.

Oba is the Orisha of marriage and personal transformation, making her fit to be the ruler of the seventh house, the house of partnership. Oba was the first wife of Shango who tended to his castle and everything that he requested, making her the ideal wife before being tricked by her sister Oya into trying to ensnare Shango with witchcraft. After this betrayal she fled to the cemetery in which she went through a transformational journey into her true power. This house is about expediating our life’s purpose through partnerships, whether that partnership be marriage, business relations, contracts, and/or treaties. Through these partnerships we learn a great deal about ourselves, transforming and enhancing our lives, making them fuller and bringing us balance on the scales of Libra.

Oya, the goddess of winds and storms, is the equivalent to Scorpio and is the ruler of the eighth house which is the house of transformation, regeneration, death, sex, and rebirth. She is the powerful force in nature that can change the face of the Earth, embodying the tornadoes and twisters that uproot trees and houses with her destructive winds. This powerful Orisha is also responsible for carrying the spirits of the newly departed to the spirit world.

The ninth house is the house of philosophy and is ruled by the philosopher Sagittarius and the planet Jupiter, the king of the gods within the Roman pantheon. Obatala, the father of all the Orisha, would therefore be the Orisha ruler of this house. Obatala is said to be the Orisha of purity and was sent by the Supreme Being Olodumare at the beginning of time to form the Earth along with construct the bodies of humans. Obatala completed his construction of the bodies he created by adding heads to them, therefore becoming known as the owner of heads. The head is symbolic of intelligence, higher education, and deeper understanding, all which the ninth house represents.

The tenth house is the house of public life and social status, being ruled by Capricorn and the planet Saturn. The aspects within this house deal with how you manifest your individual role within society and your work place, along with the energies and challenges you’ll face meeting your career goals. The Yoruba associate the planet Saturn with Babalú-Ayé, the Orisha of disease and healing. Also known as the “Wrath of the supreme god”, Babalú-Ayé’s job is to punish individuals for their transgressions, but also to heal epidemics like small pox.

The house of friends and membership, the eleventh house of the Zodiac is ruled by the planet Uranus and the sign Aquarius. Aquarius is associated with rapid social change, upheaval, and rebellion, traits that all reflect Shango, the warrior Orisha of thunder, lightning, and fire. Once a living king on Earth, Shango is known for working miracles after his death, elevating him to the status of Orisha. Shango is also the brother of Babalú-Ayé, the Orisha ruler of the tenth house. The work in society represented within the tenth house is expressed through the individual in the activities associated with the eleventh house, the planets and energies indicating how group associations and friendships will operate in your life.

The twelfth house of the Zodiac is ruled by Pisces whose Orisha equivalent is Olokun, the god of the ocean floor. This house is associated with self undoing and confinement, which is reflected in Olokun being chained to the ocean floor by seven chains. As this house deals with the unconscious and things beyond the physical plane, Olokun’s aspects are expressed within the astral, the subconscious, and altered states of consciousness that is experienced during meditation, initiation, and spirit possession. Deep and mysterious is this house of the Zodiac, just like the bottom of the ocean; an old Yoruba proverb says that nobody knows what lies on the ocean floor. Olokun is said to be the owner of the Mysteries, and sparks within our being the genius that activates our super subconscious.

Peace, Love, & Balance

@suwhat:  Blue diamond? Like my main complaint is that she looks nothing like she did in The Answer and in her mural. Also I feel like she should have like a lot of eyes or no eyes?

anon:  Blue diamond. Maybe make her less damn round, and, if possible a teardrop body shape would be cool…

ive already worked on a bd redesign here! but i thought for fun id try a design more inspired on the mural bc a lot of ppl are disappointed she doesnt look like she did in the mural, so heres some dooodles in comparison to my redesign. i was never too excited about the diamonds to begin with so i wasnt rly let down by her looking different since i had 0 expectations. and for anon, i think i can go with her entire sillouete being a teardrop! a large, heavy teardrop. i also wanted to show off the face in more detail. i feel that her curves complement the character well in contrast to yellow diamond’s sharp edges

and for more funsies, no eyes and all eyes bd. the speculation drawings of her with a lot of eyes were always v cool bc thats my Thing but i dont feel like it fits this diamond well, being a supreme ruler that condemns differences (i do have a gemsona diamond that has the irregular number of eyes tho

“King of the Sheep”

Louis I, King of the Sheep is a book written by Olivier Tallec. It is described to be about an “increasingly elaborate fantasy of what comes with being a supreme ruler: the pleasures, the responsibilities, the capriciousness.”

This ties directly in with what they were speaking about, so here we have yet another literary reference by our genius Ishida Sui.
