that was unnecessary and you know it

Some Tumblr Entities

Staff 

This one is fairly obvious, as they control the website. However, They have no control over the content on this website, only the form it is presented in. In this way, they are weaker than many on this list. However, with their unnecessary changes and rampant “bugs”, they are a force to be reckoned with in the blue blogosphere.

Corporations

Corporations have very little power in terms of content creation and format, but they act as a warning mechanism for all the small time bloggers like you and me. To get a grip on what is no longer funny, just take a sneaky peek at a corporate blog. I guarantee you’ll know what I mean when you see it.

Slimetony and his Court of Fools

These Tumblr comedians dominate the note economy by setting each other up for joke after joke in a neverending cycle. With a unique, trendsetting format that many have tried to copy, he and his pals have climbed to the top of Tumblr with relatively little competition.

Sandsverse and Meevesverse

These are some of the few blogs that have truly become one with the website. They employ a strategy of avoiding discourse by creating a “universe” and only interacting with those who obey its rules. These blogging giants are everywhere and with the way things currently are, they will never truly lose power.

The Woody Collective

A movement the went unnoticed on Tumblr for many years that has just now surfaced for all to see, claiming the corpses of fallen Tumblr Giants and Vagrants, presumably gaining their powers. Their motivations and full capacities are not currently known, but they currently appear to be a force for justice in this strange and confusing world.

Please, if you are able, add onto this database so we may be properly prepared for dealing with these beings.

Another Prompt List

Some of my favorite prompts made into an easy to read list for reblogging. Prompts originally come from these lists: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 |

  1. “Change the channel and I’ll kill you.”
  2. “You actual shit, you started without me!?”
  3. “Since I’m up, by default I will get your _____.”

  6. “I installed a stripper pole while you were gone because it made me think of you.”
  7. “How about we just never mention this again?”
  8. “It’s cute that you tried to protect me and all, but you’re like a foot shorter than me, you know?” 
  9. “The stepping stool is unnecessary.” 
  10. “Promise me you’ll be safe.” 
  11. “I don’t know what I would do if something happened to you.” 
  12. “I love you.  Of course I’m gonna defend you like that.”

  30. “No airbag. We die like men.”

It is a special kind of enlightenment to have this feeling that the usual, the way things normally are, is odd—uncanny and highly improbable. G. K. Chesterton once said that it is one thing to be amazed at a gorgon or a griffin, creatures which do not exist; but it is quite another and much higher thing to be amazed at a rhinoceros or a giraffe, creatures which do exist and look as if they don’t.

This feeling of universal oddity includes a basic and intense wondering about the sense of things. Why, of all possible worlds, this colossal and apparently unnecessary multitude of galaxies in a mysteriously curved space-time continuum, these myriads of differing tube-species playing frantic games of one-upmanship, these numberless ways of ‘doing it’ from the elegant architecture of the snow crystal or the diatom to the startling magnificence of the lyrebird or the peacock?

—  Alan Watts, The Book: On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are…
NOPE.

Sorry Starz, there is too much real misery and loss in this world right now to get on board with whatever thing you put out today or the first six or seven depressing as hell episodes. I’m verra proud that you’ve decided to promote your show, but NOPE. Sorry. I spent eleven million hours in the ER the other night having an anxiety attack (that felt like I was dying of a heart attack) and it still hasn’t really gone away. I can’t take any more. I’ve spent two seasons now getting my heart shredded - Wentworth, Faith, separation. I’ve read the books - I know what’s coming next. And I know your show-runner’s obsession with piling on the (unnecessary) agony. So, NOPE. I will be starting my journey at the reunion, which apparently I have to wait eleven million weeks for after the season starts. I don’t care. I can’t deal with Ron’s brand of endless suffering right now, especially of two beloved characters. Sam and Cait, you’re gonna crush it. Love you, hope you get all the awards for your sorrow. But…NOPE. See you in the printshop.

P.S. I will be skipping right on past any bullshit scenes with the “other people.” Because you know Ron is going to embellish them and then give us two JC love scenes…maybe. We are talking about the man who didn’t think the initial carving was important.

So I'd been following you for a while because I loved your art and thought your blog had some great content; at least it USED to. All the recent negativity and spiteful posts were just so unnecessary and repulsive that I couldn't hit the unfollow button fast enough. Why is it so hard not to let some seriously bullshit stuff bother you? Jesus, you're in your 20s? Could've fooled me. Goddamn, all you eremika shippers act like a bunch of entitled, self-absorbed, assholes.

Okaaaayyyyyy

The EM tag is always filled with hate and I never acknowledge it bc I know it’s annoying, but I should be allowed to say something about it sometimes, which I still haven’t done btw :v I’ve only talked about things that get to me more directly these days: mean tags on my drawings (first time I say something about it, but there are always ppl saying “lmao nope”, “I hate this character”, “I love siblings :)”); I’ve complained about reposts like three times? and yeah that’s a lot but let me be salty for once, I’ll get over it eventually; and there was another thing but I forgot (edit: I remembered, it was something about blocking ppl for tagging their hate).
But I’ve never pointed out groups of people for doing or thinking something I don’t like bc I know that it doesn’t matter which part of the fandom appears the most to be throwing hate to this other part, they don’t represent their whole group.

You are obviously free to think whatever you want about me for whatever reason. We don’t know each other, so it doesn’t really matter. I do wanna say that your message has a bit of everything you are complaining about, so uhmm, congrats, we are just as ugly c:

I find that tweet rather unnecessary and not sensitive tbh we know he's home based on the Nando's tweet anyway..I assume when something hits you hard or your partner is grieving you've no desire to be online on Twitter and pretend everything is okay tbh

I think that’s how you have decided to interpret those tweets, personally I think Louis wanted to publicly show he is still in the UK - where Harry, Anne, and the rest of the family is - so that people with enough brain can understand that he changed his plans in order to stay with them and support them at this tragic time, and it’s not like he could explicitly say so.

Favorite tc blogs ? :)

I don’t follow a lot of people, not even on my main (for valid reasons) but if you want to follow good tc blogs with pure quality content that

  • put a lot of effort into their blog and their posts
  • do not start unnecessary drama
  • do not act as if they have the right to control the blogs from other people
  • and always strive to answer questions as good as possible

then follow my favourite blogs bellow :)

@ted-bundys-unibrow, @tedbundy, @dylaannroof, @handcuffs-and-jailtime, @charlestonchurchmassacre, @everlasting-contrast, @pumpedupdylann, @dylannivanov, @timothymcfuckingveigh, @flexyourheart666

I suppose I’m missing a few but those are the ones I know by heart!

TalesFromThePizzaGuy: "How much change would you like back?" = amateur hour.

I’ve delivered pizza for over six years now, and myself get food delivered to my house fairly frequently. I am amazed at how many drivers, after giving them cash, ask how much change I need back.

First of all, a tip is a bonus. I know we depend on it, but trust me - if you look at it this way you’ll make it a lot easier on your sanity when you do get stiffed. And really, it IS a bonus, they don’t HAVE to tip anything. So it’s kinda presumptuous and thus unprofessional to ask that question.

Secondly, it’s a completely unnecessary question. You just need to pay a little bit of attention. If someone hands you money and says “thank you,” that’s pretty much a sure sign they have, in their mind, completed the transaction. If they don’t, then just pull out your cash and start counting out their change. Lots of times they’ll just stop you and say you’re good.

Thirdly, its better for you this way. People who tip want to feel good from tipping, good about themselves that they did a good thing and treated the pizza guy right. And they arent going to feel that if you’re just acting like its a given they will tip you. If you start counting out their change, and they say “oh you keep it,” and you act a little surprised or whatever and say “oh ok thanks a lot man,” chances are it’s going to make them feel good and they will possibly remember next time that you were actually grateful, and tip again, maybe even more.

Quit asking how much change they want back. Shit is bush league.

Some of the creative liberties (aka historical inaccuracies) that TURN takes make no sense, but I was rewatching the Monmouth scene in turn and I was thinking about how they pretty much replaced Hamilton with Ben in that scene- (in reality, Hamilton was there, and not Ben when Lee ordered the retreat) but I can kind of understand why they did it. It annoyed me at first, but it developed Ben’s character and it was a good scene, even if it was annoying to watch. However, some of the historical inaccuracies in turn are completely unnecessary, and the major plot changes are very irking *cough* the made up relationship between Anna strong and Abraham woodhull *cough*.
Anyway, moral of the story: sometimes you can alter a story a little bit to develop a character or enhance the story, but don’t go so far as to change the whole timeline to fit the plot.

you know what makes me mad? the death of my precious son, remus john lupin, was entirely unnecessary. like jkr claims it was to emphasize the “orphans of war” with teddy, but that point doesn’t need to be emphasized because the entire series was about an orphan of a war. and yes, there are orphans of every war, but that point is just as easily made by simply saying something like “harry saw one of his classmates knelt down next to the body of their mom/dad”. and yes, his death is also meant to break off the last tie harry had with his parents bUT YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO DO THAT. but what makes me the most angry isn’t the fact that he died. it’s the fact that he wasn’t even given a good death scene: a death scene that is heart wrenching and makes the reader cry for an extended amount of time. like trust me, i wanted to cry over his death, i really did, because if one person deserves my tears, it is remus john lupin, but i couldn’t bring myself to cry over one measly line that simply says something along the lines of “lupin and tonks were laying there among the others who had died”. and then we don’t even get harry’s emotions, like we do with sirius’s death, to make it really hit home. it’s unjust.

all im saying is that if remus john lupin had to die, he deserved a good death scene that makes us sob and makes our heart breaks not only for the loss of one of our favorite characters but also for harry for losing yet another person who is so important to him, and we get neither of those.

Steve Trevor is definitely trans hear me out

- I’m going through this scene by scene y’all get ready

- Kay so, when diana rescues him he’s immediately anxious when she asks him “You’re a man…?” I could almost taste the “oh god am I suddenly not passing??” fear in his eyes

- He doesn’t say something like “of course I am” or “yes haven’t you ever seen a man??” instead he goes straight for “Yeah, uhm…don’t I look like one?” this is not something a cis man worries about

- Side note: if y’all come at me with “oh he says steve is his name when they use the lasso of truth on him so he must be cis” l i s ten his name is steve. Why would he answer that question any other way? Also, I’d like to note, in the comics when Batman was asked the same question while holding the lasso of truth, he answered with Batman, not Bruce Wayne. The lasso makes you answer what YOU believe is the truth. Steve’s deadname isn’t his “true name” steve trevor is obv

- Consider: we know there were LOTS of women who cross-dressed in wwI in order to fight. What if that’s what steve did to join the military when he was much younger, but then he realized oh…maybe there’s more here going on than I thought

- HRT became available after WWII largely due to this guy, and in this superhero universe of Scientific Inaccuracies and Magical Goddesses Made From Clay, it’s not entirely implausible that HRT couldn’t have become available a few decades earlier in some capacity (alan hart is amazing, please read more about him)

- Okay, the bathroom scene: Steve panics at first when diana walks in on him, because he’s like SHIT CANT REVEAL MY WEIRD JUNK but when its clear shes not going to be weird about it, he stops trying to hide

- diana specifically says “are you considered average for your sex” not gender. And we know from later during the scene on the boat that she must know the difference, because she read the 12 volume collection on genitals and what you can do with them

- So diana’s like “well that’s not what I was expecting at all” and what she says is basically the more subtle, educated way of saying: dude why don’t you have a penis and balls

- And when steve answers above average, he’s basically saying “yeah, im trans, go me, deal with it”

- Just saying, him being trans makes this entire interaction and every one after that where steve is trying to explain western gender norms to diana significantly more hilarious

- Moving on: the boat. Diana asks about marriage and Steve answers two people go in front of a judge etc etc. then when she asks why they get married, even if they’re unhappy, steve says he doesn’t know. Marriage is as mystifying to him as it is to her. If that isn’t queer then idk what queer is

- The “this confuses me just as much as it does you” look on his face throughout this entire interaction

- His interest in her books about sex: as a trans man in an age when sex for the pleasure of vagina owners was basically unheard of/considered sinful, of course he’s interested

- The soft “no” when she says the books ultimately say men are unnecessary for pleasure; no as in utter disbelief, more like “no way can I read this??” than “no omg sex needs a penis and a vagina what are you talking about”

- Lastly: it makes SO much sense for steve to become a spy. Trans people are excellent liars. They have to be in order to survive. Steve obv would have made it through his entire military service without letting on that he was trans, so he knows he’s totally capable of lying his way into german high command

- This has so much fanfic potential, I am dying

- Go forth and write all the fanfic about diana teaching steve the secrets of her 12 volumes about sex

i still cant believe the boat scene in wonder woman was improvised… like that was some of the funniest stuff in the movie!! and like!! diana talking about the ‘physical pleasures of the flesh’… you’re telling me that was improvised. there were twelve (12) volumes about it?! that led to the conclusion men are unnecessary for pleasure… that was improvised!? thank you gal.

gal gadot… the lgbt ally we deserve

It’s OK if it’s not easy for you

So generally, I’m a good internet citizen, and as a rule, I don’t read the comments. On anything. Ever. With some of the publicity that the UfYH book has been getting lately, though, I’ll admit to briefly losing reason from time to time and reading some comments. And there’s one kind of comment I keep coming across that makes me want to scream:

“This is so stupid. I mean, it’s so easy. Just clean up your house. No need for lists or tricks. Just clean it.”

“Can’t this whole article be shortened up to: don’t be a slob?”

“Ugh, how hard is it these days that we need all these ways of telling people how to clean?“

And I always refrain from responding, because I haven’t completely taken leave of my senses, but here’s what I always want to say:

“If you think it’s easy, then this isn’t for you.” That’s it. If you think it’s easy, or stupid, or unnecessary, UfYH wasn’t meant for you. If you think articles and books about cleaning are pointless, well, I’m not sure why you read them except to be a jerk about it in comments. It’s meant for everyone else. For people who don’t know how to clean. Or who don’t know where to start. For people who can’t do it the way they were taught because that takes energy or mobility that they don’t have. For people who are overwhelmed. Or ashamed. It’s OK to be any or all of those things, no matter what sanctimonious strangers on the internet say. If you’re any of those things and you’re here, you’re using the resources you can find to try to make things better for yourself. Isn’t that the point of the internet (well, that and cute animal gifs)?

Screw those jerks who think that because it’s easy for them, that it’s easy for everybody. It’s not. Don’t let them fool you into thinking you’re somehow lesser in any way because you don’t innately know or instinctively do this stuff. There are way more of us than there are of them; we just usually keep quiet about it for any number of reasons (shame, fear, judgment, frustration…). They can go feel smug about their clean houses or whatever somewhere else. Now, go clean, be awesome, and don’t read the comments.

anonymous asked:

Wait where does it say that adrien & marinette are actually 13? This is new info for me hahaha

idk dude, there’s a rumor (?) that they’re 13????? Like, I don’t think that makes much sense???  

Because it’s Alix’s 15th birthday during the Time episode, 

So by logic, that would mean the rest of the class is around the same age, 14-15??? 

Also, it was Adrien’s birthday in the bubbler episode, 

So he’s very likely to be 15 as well. But we only have one point of reference, so we can’t say much????

Oh, and don’t forget, in the Animan episode, it’s possibly revealed that Marinette’s sign is Leo, 

Marinette, why are you like this

…Which suggests her birthday was during the summer, and she’s also 15. And that she’s possibly older than Adrien shhhhhhh.

But again, we only have one point of reference, so we can’t say too much 
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

tl;dr: Don’t worry, I think that’s just a rumor

I don’t understand why people think that casting a curse will automatically have repercussions.

Let’s think about this logically. Someone wrongs you, legitimately, and you cast a curse on them. According to the Law of Attraction, you’re returning the negative energy they aimed at you.

Unless you’re casting unnecessary curses on undeserving people, you’re probably safe.

Aside from that, a witch who plans on cursing should know to take the necessary precautions before casting a curse and be confident in their methods.

I would also dare to say that someone who really believes that they’ll be negatively affected by casting a curse is more likely to suffer from it than someone who doesn’t.

Since bitty is (I think?) the first openly gay player in the NHL in the fics, what about other players hitting on him when they play the schooners, or even better, during the all star game when jack is right there?

The game so far has been nothing memorable, just another pre-season exhibition against Edmonton that neither team really want to give their all because why risk anything before the season even starts?

“Bittle,” Burig, a second line Oilers winger, flags Eric down at the end of the second period, with a look of grim determination that gives Eric the sense he’s about to be sucker-punched.

“Yeah?”

“You, uh,” Burig hesitates, gnawing on his mouthguard and twisting his stick in his hands while he comes up with whatever he wants to say. He huffs and looks around for any teammates that might be watching the exchange, finding the rest of his line distracted, he leans in close. “You doing anything after the game?”

Eric blinks. “What?” 

“Just,” Burig shrugs, face flushing pink, “wanted to see if you’d like to grab a drink or something.”

“Oh. Oh!” Someone from the bench yells his name and Eric is faced with a dilemma he knows he can’t resolve in the next 15 seconds. “Wait for me after the game, we can talk.”

Burig nods tightly, beet red, and skates back to his own bench.

Just another thing for Eric to think about while coach yells at him for missing an unnecessary pep talk.

____

Burig is waiting for Eric when he leaves the locker room, hair still damp and his suit slightly rumpled like he’d thrown it on in a rush, which makes Eric feel worse for some reason.

“Hey,” he perks up when he sees Eric, sliding his phone into his gear bag. “You wanted to talk?” He sounds so earnest it hurts and Eric motions to a meeting room just off the hallway.

“It’ll be a bit more private in here.”

Eric doesn’t waste time when the doors close, Burig isn’t the first player to approach him and he certainly won’t be the last.

“You’re very sweet, but I have a boyfriend.”

“Fuckin’ knew it,” Burig curses, shouldering his duffel bag. “No way someone as hot as you is single. Worth a shot, right?”

“Were you looking for a hook-up or?”

“No, not like that, I just kinda,” he hesitates like he’s afraid of saying too much.

“Safe space,” Eric waves his arms to indicate the empty room. “Be honest.”

“I’m tired of Grindr and puckbunnies and bar hookups, you know? I want something real.”

Eric immediately runs through a list in his mind of the few single players he’s met in similarly awkward situations. “You play in Vancouver next week, right?”

Burig’s eyes go wide and Eric holds up a warning finger. “Hold your horses. I may have a friend in a similar situation, but it’ll be on his terms if he wants to reach out. Give me your number, and I’ll pass it along if he wants to meet. Okay? No promises.”

_______

“You want to tell me why we’re watching Vancouver slaughter Edmonton when we could be doing literally anything else?” Jack bemoans from the couch, poking and prodding at Eric to distract him.

“I’m invested, alright? You plant seeds, you watch ‘em grow.”

The clock runs out on the second period and Eric keeps his eyes trained on Vancouver’s goalie, Crivier, who waves Burig over in a moment of calm. The two talk, barely visible over the shoulder of a commentator, but moments later Burig skates away with a very prominent smile on face. 

“And boom goes the dynamite,” Eric whispers, grabbing the remote to switch over to the new season of House of Cards.

“You playing matchmaker again, Bits?” Jack laughs, pressing himself against Eric’s side and nuzzling at his neck.

“You know how much competition you’d have if I didn’t set up all the guys that hit on me with each other?” Eric breathes, sliding his fingers through Jack’s hair. “I could have a harem.”

Jack groans and squeezes Eric tightly. “I’ll fight everyone,” he murmurs, “even the guys I like.”

leo: I lived better when I was ignorant of the sun, tucked away in your chest. 
virgo: there is a variety of sadness that makes a home in your guts and never quite leaves. 
libra: if only it were easy! to wish and want for nothing. if only you weren’t less human for it - wishing and wanting for nothing. 
scorpio: you’ve long seen your downfall spelled out in another’s bone. 
sagittarius: love to distraction, die due to carelessness. 
capricorn: your ego cannot afford cremation or caskets. 
aquarius: you’re dazzling and terrifying - those words are not as removed from one another as you may think. 
pisces: flirt with death, tease the inevitable, give the void a saucy wink. 

In light of an unfortunate display of ignorance I witnessed today, let me take a moment to make something blatantly clear, for anybody that needs it:

-making fun of someone for using a fidget spinner, to the point of them displaying obvious embarrassment and shame, is disgusting. 

-when you say things like “Oh my GOD, I hate those spinners! They’re so annoying, what are they even for haha” you are being willfully ignorant. Spinners are marketed towards people with anxiety, PTSD, OCD, ADD/ADHD, Autistic people, and many other people with brains different from yours that need an outlet to focus, relax, relieve sensory-related issues, and many other things that yours does automatically. Most of the ones I see advertised even specify “For anxiety/stress/ADHD/Autism/etc”

-Making fun of someone for other behaviors such as rocking, hand flapping, echolalia, hair twirling, skin picking, hair pulling, etc is in fact, also a shitty thing of you to do. It’s also unnecessary, cruel, and humiliates the person who is doing those things.

-Don’t make fun of people who use fidget spinners. Don’t make fun of people who stim. I don’t give a rat’s ass if you think it’s unnecessary, or it “looks weird” or it “looks gross.” Don’t do it. You KNOW what you’re doing. I know what you’re doing. I’ve had it, I’m done.
