Question!

So me and my friend just watched this science video where they explained if you Drilled a hole through the earth and jump in that hole it would take you 42 minutes to reach the other side?! But the MindFuck is Where does Gravity come into Play like when do you stop falling!?!?! Like lets say hypothetically i jump in this hole on the other side of the world and India is the bottom and Im gonna pop out or how does it work? Its not about surviving its about what happens to the falling body. Me and my friend Quinn are discussing this and its effing with our heads? 

anonymous asked:

I'm confused, this seems different to the sailor v anime episode?

Yeah, it definitely is. I thought Episode 42 was pulled from the manga in some way, and I suppose it still could be from the main work. But it’s definitely not from Sailor V at all.

Or at least not in a way that’s directly recognizable. Something I find interesting about the creation process between the manga and anime (and something I feel gets overlooked or ignored more than is probably fair) is how they were created alongside each other. While there’s a definitive starting order – the V manga, the Moon manga, the anime – that’s about as clear as we’re ever going to get. From there, the mangas and anime are overlapping in ways that I’m absolutely positive influenced each other across the board, not purely in a one way manga -> anime funnel that has been insisted on over the years. None of this happened in a vacuum.

I obviously don’t know yet what, if anything, the main manga will bring to Minako’s backstory, so some of the elements in Episode 42 may yet pop up there. Or it’s possible it’s a purely anime development. Though again, I think we have to consider how much we don’t know about the creation specifics, and in that sense, it’s a fantastic example of what I’m talking about above. FOLLOW MY THOUGHT PROCESS HERE.

Let’s assume that the main manga won’t introduce these details, about Minako living in London and fighting the Dark Kingdom, and pretending to be the Princess, nor will there be a Katarina and Alan and that god awful plotline.

But let’s consider for a moment where those ideas came from. Maybe just the anime creators, that’s certainly possible. But it’s also possible they were given an outline or set of rough ideas for where Takeuchi was planning to take the Sailor V story, and so that’s what they built on. And maybe she saw it was a generally shitty episode and so never introduced those ideas, something she could easily do not actually finishing V until years after that episode had aired. 

Or maybe it was original to the anime, and while Takeuchi didn’t absorb the whole thing, she did borrow pieces. Consider that Katarina and Not-Rei serve very similar functions to the story as high-ranking members of law enforcement working with Sailor V. They both also have the big sister/little sister relationship going on. There’s even the basic framework of the Minako/Katarina/Alan story in the chapter about the manga creator and her editor.

So how does the idea flowchart look? Was it manga to anime? Anime to manga? Manga to anime to manga? Completely independent of influence from each other? We could speculate for the next twenty years and still never know. Even the people involved may have no idea at this point, it was so long ago.

I FIND IT FASCINATING

But yes, back to your ACTUAL question. Looking purely at what’s on the page of the Sailor V manga, Episode 42 appears to be an original take on Minako’s backstory.

There Were Others;

an @xfficchallenges submission for the dialogue-only prompt.

“He wasn’t the only one, Mulder. Just the only one where I got caught.”

“What? Who? I don’t know what you’re–”

“No, not caught — that implies I’ve done something wrong, which I have not. I mean — the only one in which my privacy was breached.”

“Which — which exit are we supposed to take —”

“Exit 42, it’s not for miles and miles. I’m not — I know this may not fit with the way you see me, but I’ve never been cut out for celibacy. I have needs, and I’m not ashamed of that.”

“So — what, you just rack up an endless list of one-night stands? Every time you get the itch, you expose yourself to all that danger —”

“Not that this should matter to you, but it’s not an ‘endless list,’ Mulder. Fewer than ten since I’ve known you. And thank you for your concern, but I am very, very careful—”

“Until last week, yeah.”

“I’m going to let that go right now, because you’re trying to distract me, and I need you to hear this.”

“Forgive me if I don’t want to hear a blow-by-blow recitation of your secret sexual escapades—”

“Stop.”

“Neither of us need me to go into the details. But the thing is, Mulder — the energy can only build for so long before I have to do something about it —”

“So why don’t you just — get a boyfriend or something? Some nice stable asshole with a nice stable job who won’t try to KILL YOU when —”

“That’s my point. That’s exactly my point. I don’t want a nice stable asshole hanging around my apartment, or anybody else even semi-permanent, I’m already com— look, I find men, partners, for sex, when I’m sick enough of my own imagination, not to mention my own hands. And it’s fair to say I have a type, do you understand what I’m saying?”

“You — you just want sex, nothing else? No — no conversation, no watching movies on the couch, no waking up late and going to find bagels?”

“It’s EXACTLY the ‘everything else’ that I’m … goddammit, you’re dense.”

“Oh — hey, why are you crying? Here — shit, here take this —”

“Frustration! GOD. How can you not understand this? I want what I can’t have, so I take what I can get. I don’t want to tangle up my physical needs with the rest of it, not with them! Because …”

“Because what? Why not, Scully?”

“Here, let go of my hand — that’s our exit coming up.”

ISLAM 101: How to Convert to Islam: Part 1

How to Convert to Islam


To enter the fold of Islam, all one needs to do is to pronounce the testimony of faith (shahaadah) with sincere conviction, being fully aware of its meaning. The shahaadah is the first and most important of the five pillars of Islam and consists of two parts, namely:

1) Ashhadu an laailaaha illallaah:

This means: I bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship except Allah; I worship Him alone without associating any partners with Him in worship.

2) Wa ash hadu anna Muhammad an rasool-ullaah:

This means: And I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah whom Allah has sent to all mankind; I will obey his commands and avoid anything he has forbidden and worship Allah according to His law and the teachings of His Messenger May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him.

Taking a Bath:

The very moment a person embraces Islam is doubtless the greatest moment in his life, for it signifies his real birth through which he has come to understand the real reason behind his existence in this life. Now that he has entered the fold of Islam, he is recommended to take a bath (ghusl), washing his entire body with water. Just as he has cleansed his soul of such things as associating partners with Allah in worship (shirk) and committing sins, he is recommended to cleanse his body by taking a bath.
When one of the Arab notables embraced Islam, the Prophet May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him directed him to take a bath. (Al-Bayhaqee’s As-Sunan As-Sughraa: 837)

Sincere Repentance

Repentance (tawbah) means “sincerely turning to Allah”, and a repentant person is one who gives up sins and unbelief and turns to Allah in repentance.
A Muslim needs to repent and seek Allah’s forgiveness at practically all stages of his life; because it is only human to err, a Muslim is required to repent and beg Allah’s pardon every time he commits a sin.

What Are the Conditions of Sincere Repentance?

For repentance of all sins, including the sin of unbelief and shirk, to be valid and acceptable to Allah, a number of conditions must be met, including the following:

1) To give up the sin immediately

Sincere repentance from sin with the deliberate desire to continue to commit it is not valid and will not possibly take place; if, however, a person commits the sin again after sincerely repenting from it, his earlier repentance will still be valid but he will need fresh repentance, and so on.

2) To feel deep sorrow and regret for having committed it

True repentance cannot possibly take place without feeling deep remorse for having committed the sin. A person who talks about his past sins and brags about committing them is in no way considered penitent. As the Prophet May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him once stated, “Remorse is repentance.” (Sunan Ibn Maajah: 4252)

3) To sincerely resolve not to commit it again

Sincere repentance cannot possibly take place if a penitent person intends to repeat the sin.

Steps towards Acquiring Determination


-Pledging oneself not to repeat the sin under any circumstances and obstacles, not even for an instant, for the Prophet May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him said, “Whoever possesses the following three qualities will relish the sweetness of faith.” Of these three characteristics, he mentioned “to hate to return to unbelief (kufr) after Allah has saved him from it, as much as he would hate to be thrown into the Fire.” (Saheeh Al-Bukhaaree: 21; Saheeh Muslim: 43)

-Keeping away from people and places that are bound to decrease his faith and tempt him to commit sins.

-Repeatedly begging Allah May He be glorified and exalted to keep him on the right path and adhere firmly to Islam until death, in any language or form. Examples from the Qur’an and the Prophet’s Sunnah include the following:

“Rabbanaa laa tuzigh quloobanaa ba‛da idh hadaytanaa” (Our Lord, do not make our hearts deviate after You have guided us) (SooratAal-‛Imraan, 3:8)

“Yaa muqallibal-quloob, Thabbit qalbee ‛alaa deenik” (O Allah, Controller of hearts, make my heart adhere firmly to Your religion) (Sunan At-Tirmidhee: 2140)

What Happens after Repentance?

If a person turns to Allah in repentance, Allah May He be glorified and exalted will definitely forgive his sins, no matter how serious they may be, for His mercy “extends to all things” (Soorat Al-A‛raaf, 7:156). The Qur’an says, “Say: ‘My slaves, you who have transgressed against yourselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Truly Allah forgives all wrong actions. He is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful.’” (Soorat Az-Zumar, 39:53)
After a person sincerely repents to Allah, Allah May He be glorified and exalted will definitely pardon him and forgive his sins; in addition, He will reward him; immensely: He will change his bad deeds into good ones, as the Qur’an states, “Except for those who repent, believe and act rightly: Allah will transform the wrong actions of such people into good — Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (Soorat Al-Furqaan,25:70)
As this a reward is immense indeed, a sensible person ought to maintain such repentance and spare no effort to avoid falling into Satan’s trap which will negatively affect his faith.

Sweetness of Faith

Those who will most certainly taste the sweetness of faith, experience deep tranquillity and take great delight in experiencing closeness to Allah are those who love Allah May He be glorified and exalted and His Messenger May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him more than anyone or anything else, love others, commensurate with their closeness to Allah and dedication to Islam, and hate to convert to unbelief just as they hate to be punished in Hellfire. The Prophet May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him said, “Any person who combines these three qualities will certainly experience the sweetness of faith: (1) that Allah and His Messenger are dearer to him than anything else; (2) that his love of others is purely for Allah’s sake; and (3) that he hates to relapse into unbelief as much as he hates to be cast into the Fire.” (Saheeh Al-Bukhaaree: 21; Saheeh Muslim: 43)

A Muslim relishes the sweetness of faith when he hates to relapse into unbelief just as much as he hates to be thrown into the Fire.


Showing Gratefulness to Allah for His Guidance

A Muslim owes Allah the Almighty a great debt of gratitude for helping him repent of the sins he has committed and for guiding him to the truth. The following are the best things a Muslim can possibly do to express gratitude to Allah for such blessings:

1) Holding Fast to Islam and Patiently Enduring Hardships that Come One’s Way

It goes without saying that if a person has a priceless treasure, he will undoubtedly do his best to protect it. Islam is undeniably the best gift to mankind, for it is not a mere set of abstract ideology, nor is it a hobby which a person may practise whenever he feels like it; rather, it is a religion and a way of life which governs a Muslim’s life in all its aspects without exception. Commanding His Messenger May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him to stubbornly hold fast to Islam and the teachings of the Qur’an, being on the right path, Allah May He be glorified and exalted says in the Qur’an, “So hold fast to what has been revealed to you. You are on a straight path.” (Soorat Az-Zukhrf, 43:43)


A Muslim must not feel sad if he experiences any form of hardship, for it is part of Allah’s wise plan to test His servants. Allah May He be glorified and exalted even tested His prophets and messengers, who are far better than us, and the Qur’an tells us how they encountered untold suffering at the hands of relatives and enemies alike, without losing heart, weakening in their faith or wavering under adversity. The great hardship a Muslim faces due to his dedication to the truth is one of the ways Allah May He be glorified and exalted tests His servants’ faith. Therefore, live up to your lofty principles, try your best to pass the test, adhere to the truth under all circumstances and constantly pray to Allah to keep you on the right path, just as the Prophet May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him himself did. Repeat the supplication: “Yaa muqallibal-quloob, Thabbit qalbee‛alaa deenik” (O Allah, Controller of hearts, make my heart adhere firmly to Your religion). (Sunan At-Tirmidhee: 2140)

Allah May He be glorified and exalted says in this context, “Do people think that once they say, ‘We believe,’ they will be left alone and not be put to the test? We certainly tried those who have gone before them, so Allah will certainly distinguish between those who are truthful and those who are lying.” (Soorat Al-‛Ankaboot,29:2-3)

2) Doing One’s Best to Call to Islam with Wisdom and fair Admonition

Engaging in da‛wah work (calling others to Islam) is undoubtedly one of the best ways of expressing gratitude to Allah as well as one of the most effective means to remain constant in faith. If a person recovers from a life-threatening disease which has caused him a great deal of suffering and misery after discovering the right cure for his disease, he will certainly spread such a remedy amongst people, particularly amongst his relatives and closest friends. This point is elucidated as follows:

Part 41

Warnings: prob swearing



“Are you ready to go?” Dan asked, closing up the last zip on his suitcase. Our trip to Paris had come to the end and now it was time to go home and face the music with whatever was left to come.

“Yeah, Liam just ate so let me burp him and we can get going.” I had Liam in my arms, dressed in the cutest pair of blue footie pyjamas with little clouds and a nice matching hat. He was the cutest baby in the entire world, but he seemed to constantly be growing bigger and bigger. There wasn’t a problem as everyone kept gifting me new clothes for him along with Dan and I purchasing whatever we saw, but it was a lot for me. He wasn’t even one, yet it felt like my baby was closer and closer to leaving me.

“Alright. Take your time. We have two hours until check out.” Dan sat next to me at the edge of the bed, where I was patting away at Liam’s back. He grinned, looking down at us and kissed my temple.

“What’s got you so happy? We have to go back to England and all of our problems today.”

“Well, I’m not really concerned about Marie. I’ll take care of it so don’t worry, okay? Other than that, most people have technically been rooting for us. I know my family will be happy.” Dan nodded slightly.

“So will mine. I think the girls will be too, eventually.” I gulped back, slowing the pats on Liam’s back for a slight second before returning back to the pattern.

“Then what’s got you feeling so down?” He frowned slightly. “Things are beginning to fall in place.”

“It’s one thing. Pretty minor but… No. It’s not minor at all. It’s colossal and I’m a horrible person.”

“Phil.” Dan chewed on his lip and sighed. “Whatever happens will be okay, you know that right?”

“No. You two are best friends and I completely screwed around. I did have feelings for him, you know? I loved every moment I spent with him but I know that it wasn’t meant to be anything more than a fling. However, I still feel horrible. I don’t want us being together to damage your relationship with him.”

“Y/N,” Dan wrapped an arm around me and shook his head. “I promise you that whatever happens will work out in the end. Phil is the best person I know, and trust me. He will be hurt, as any human with feelings would be, but he will learn to let go and find happiness and love with somebody who changes his life just as you did with mine.” Dan cupped my chin and planted a chaste kiss firmly on my lips. After pulling away he simply ran his thumb across my bottom lip and kissed my nose. “You have no idea how good you actually are.”

 “Shut up,” I blushed, turning back to Liam who had just burped. “I’ll feel better once I talk to him.”

“Fair enough.” He held his hands up in defence.

“Also, I want you to know that even though I am so into you it hurts-I’m still getting my own place. I know we have a baby already and we’ve lived in the same place for months, but I want to take this relationship slow. In case it doesn’t work out, I don’t want to feel terrible and be under the same roof. It’ll be for a little while so I won’t sign anything to serious. And I’ll look for something close to you so it’s easy to exchange Liam.” Dan looked like he wanted to say so many things, but his shoulders relaxed and he took a deep breath.

“I understand and I do think it would be good for us.” he scratched the back of his neck.

“Here, take your son. I’ve gotta brush my teeth before we go. I almost forgot.” I handed him Liam and scooted along to the bathroom.

It was nice that we were finally able to be like this. Not completely functional, but we were comfortably in place. I was expecting more altercations in the future, but I prayed that they wouldn’t be as severe as the ones we suffered through in the past.

I brushed my teeth and quickly washed off my face.

“Would you ever want to have another kid? Not now, obviously, but in the future? I get that you just got over a pregnancy scare but I mean when we’re more settle down and stuff.” Dan managed to ramble out, bouncing Liam in his arms.

“Me? Another kid?” I chuckled. “That shit hurt. A lot. And I got so fat… Insanely fat.” I rested my hand over my stomach and cocked up a brow as I analyzed the idea over and over in my head, looking for a conclusion.

“I believe that it hurt but the fat thing was technically the baby, not you.”

“Then yeah, maybe I would want another one. Not now though, not before I get my degree. Perhaps a dog instead?” I put my hand on my hip, closing up my own suitcase and pulling up the handle to roll it around. Dan beamed, showing his dimples.

“I like dogs. Maybe we can adopt one when the day comes for our little family to live together.” He walked up and returned the bay to me. “You take this and I’ll take our stuff.”

“Yeah, yeah. Let’s get going.”

So that concluded our Paris trip. It was filled with a heartwarming get together that brought Dan and I in unison and now we were beginning to unfold and bring happiness into our relationship and hopefully have Liam inherit some of that joy.

Paris had brought us time with excellent cuisine and music, as well as a beautiful setting of culture. I couldn’t have thought of a better way to fully start exploring what life would be like now being with Dan in the way I had craved in the past few months.

But now it was time to deal with all the baggage we left behind.

hey you. Yes, you. Stop being unhappy with yourself. You are perfect. Stop wishing you looked like someone else or wishing people liked you as much as they like someone else. Stop trying to get attention from those who hurt you, stop hating your body, your face, your personality, your quirks, love them. Without those things you wouldn’t be you. And why would you want to be anyone else? Be confident with who you are. Smile. It’ll draw people in. If anyone hates on you because you are happy with yourself then stick your middle finger in the air and say screw it. My happiness will not depend on others anymore. I’m happy because I love who I am. I love my flaws. I love my imperfections. They make me. And ‘me’ is pretty amazing.
Remember, when somebody annoys you, it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown, BUT it only takes 4 muscles to extend your arm and BITCH SLAP that MOTHERFU*KER!

Ouran Drinking Game - With Soda: 5/10, kind of recommend???

So once upon a time two summers ago, Jade, Alice, and I (Sam) played our very own version of the Ouran Drinking Game. 

Every time we saw a weird hand motion, we took a sip of a singular two-litter bottle (because we didn’t have any shot glasses.) 

We ended up taking 42 sips in one episode. Fast forward to tonight and the three of us are reunited (and yes it feels so good); so of course we wanted to relive that great memory - but this time it would be better!

We came across this game on TV Tropes.

To summarize we had to take shots for every common trope in the show. Examples include, but are not limited to: 

  • bishi sparkles and roses
  • commoner’s coffee
  • the pink clock tower
  • the twins incest love shtick.
  • etc.

This time, we had shot glasses. It ended up being 55 shots for episode one. We downed over a liter and a half of soda, leaving very little in our individual two-litter bottles. 

We were nauseous and our stomachs were visibly bulging out. Burping and crying/laughing was a common. 

Alice was a martyr in the process. (Too much carbonation + constant indulgence = a lot of “cookie tossing”)

Since soda wasn’t good, we definitely do not recommend alcoholic drinks. Safer alternatives might be either taking sips instead of shots, or healthier liquid options like juice or water.

So all in all, it was an experience! It was fun until things went awry.
