the 12 spot

Cas Needs a Drink and Finally Got One

So I want to talk about Cas and food/drink (especially drinks) in season 12. There have been a lot of moments in the seven episodes he’s been in so far that clearly show Cas not eating/drinking (which, yes I know he doesn’t have to, but wait till you see how much this has popped up so far ).

I think it makes the most sense to go by episode. (Oh, and I’m tagging you @mittensmorgul because I know you keep careful track of food and drink. There’s been conversation around some of this already, but I’m not confident who was doing the conversing so… @elizabethrobertajones @bluestar86 @postmodernmulticoloredcloak @justanotheridijiton @ibelieveinthelittletreetopper)

So in 12.01 Keep Calm and Carry On the scene we get is Cas bringing coffee to Mary and Dean at a roadside cafe and then the three of them at that table–Castiel being the only one without a drink–the spot in front of him empty.

In 12.02 Mamma Mia the scene we get is a sort of family dinner with beer and pie at the Map Table in the bunker.  Cas is completely absent (at least from the room, possibly from the bunker all together for reasons).  Full disclosure: I haven’t seen these two episodes as recently and they’re currently off CW’s website–let me know if I forgot things!!

A border story from Nogales, Arizona: I spotted 12-year-old Alexander Figueroa bringing his pug, Michelle, back home across the border from Nogales, Mexico. The dog’s lip had been torn in a fight with a bigger dog. The vet in Tucson quoted them $675 to stitch Michelle up. So instead, Alexander and his mom, Liliana, drove south. Total cost in Mexico: 600 pesos, or about $30. “And they gave her a free shower!” Alexander told me, happily.

What if Spot became the leader of Brooklyn on accident and everyone is scared of him because he always seems so indifferent and it’s because he is but he always accidently makes the right choices and is the best leader Brooklyn can remember having but he literally just…doesn’t know what’s going on he’s just a kid with the entire child workforce of Brooklyn responding to him because he accidently beat the old leader in the fight by falling on top of him from a stack of crates and knocking him out.


Screaming into the abyss

I was not prepared for maintenance and failed to get the proper kinds of screenshots! Despite all that, I’m posting this up to get the word out that we finished Lahk Strutstep’s plot! Remember that post about floating garden plots? I made one!

Some very important points to note:

  • No, the water effect is not glass
  • Yes, the water is in fact glowing
  • The pictures progress through conception and development

I am so excited for this new plot, and welcome all those looking to RP with the swampies to swing by sometime! The plot is public, but won’t be up on any public forum sites to visit considering it’s purpose as the Direbog gardens.

Thanks for taking a look!

Goku Destroying universes?!?!? WHAT I need to catch up on Super but give me the Deets Jax

Okay so basically in the New Arc of Dragon Ball Super Goku wanted to fight in a Multiverse tournament so he went and talked to GOD and GOD said sure

So GOD makes up the rules for the Tournament and God (Or the High Priest Angel) Decides that all 12 Universes COMPETING will have a chance to win and prove theyre the best but THE LOSING UNIVERSE will BE ERASED that means the Kais and Gods of Destruction are ERASED as well. ALSO meaning the afterlife for that Universe will be erased so if you die you literally dont exist but it doesnt matter cause you are erased.

So only 1 universe can win and 7 Will be Erased. 

4 of the Universes are safe because the quality of life in them are high. 

So everyone IS FREAKING OUT about this but Goku is all

“I just wanna fight strong folks I’ll FIGHT EVERYONE COME AT ME BRO”

He literally says that no BS

so When Goku fights this dude named Bergamo he pleads to GOD hey. 

Originally posted by bird-studio

If I win this make it so all the universes are exempt and wont be destroyed please and GOD agrees if he wins he’ll leave all the universes alone but if Goku holds back and lets the dude win he’ll destroy all 12 universes on the spot. So Goku just wants a good fight and battles the dude without holding back and kicks his ass

Originally posted by vgeta

So after he beats him all the other universes are lookin at Goku like WHY DID YOU AGREE TO THIS and GOKU SAYS 

Like totally just Saiyan Blood Hyped up and then at the end this Dude who looks like Robotnic is gonna fight him to see if Goku is evil and Goku says

And then they are going to fight. Honestly it feels like Goku’s TRUE SAIYAN nature is overtaking him to the point he’s indifferent to the Googleplex of lives that could be lost because he wanted to battle 

EDIT FOR THOSE who keep saying OmniKing was gonna destroy those universes anyway.

Thats not the Main POINT of the issue the Main Point is Goku really Doesn’t care about anyone else BUT FIGHTING. So all that “He gave em a fighting chance Bullshit” Doesnt really matter because he didnt care in the first place. When he found out that all the Universes were at stake he was like “Oh….well that sucks. Oh well” but he wasn’t shaken at all. and I know people are saying “well if they win he could use the Super DragonBalls and Restore them” etc but still the fact he is becoming so Indifferent to all the Lives that could be lost is fuckin Bullshit. I know he’s done selfish shit before like
Letting Vegeta, Frieza, and Buu Live when he couldve killed them

or giving a Cell a senzu bean and letting him wail on his son just cause he wanted to see a good fight and thought Gohan will eventually rage boost.

They REALLY Need to address this because even Kid Goku and Early DBZ Goku would not have pulled this shit or if they did they would still be worried about people’s lives, Yes even the japanese one did show he cared numerous times throughout the series so thats what irks me

anonymous asked:

Hi! Could you explain how a skater can become eligible to compete for the Winter Olympics? Because I automatically assumed that Michael Christian Martinez would go and represent the Philippines but he's not? So I'm a bit confused. (And also, are the three slots that you get for your country dependent on the division? Like did Yuzuru Hanyu and Shoma Uno secure 3 slots for the men's division?) Sorry, I just want to clarify. Thank you for taking your time to answer our questions!

Thanks for asking!

Yes, I saw this blunder by the Philippines federation. Admittedly, the Australian fed also made the same error, though not on the same scale (they explained that top 24 was enough, did not claim a skater was going when they weren’t, though). The error that both parties made was assuming that a top-24 finish was enough, when it wasn’t.

For men’s (and ladies), 24 Olympic spots are handed out at the pre-Olympic Worlds (this one). But it’s not as simple as “everyone in the top twenty-four gets a spot”. Let’s take a look at how the men’s shook out:

JAPAN: 1st, 2nd, and 19th. When there are three skaters, only the top two results count. The magic number to retain three spots is 13. 1+2=3, which is less than 13. So Japan gets three spots.

Now, we take those three spots out of the available twenty four. 24-3=21.

CHINA: 3rd (only competitor). When there is only one skater, they have to finish in the top 10 to earn two spots, or come first or second to get three. So Boyang earned China two spots for the Olympics. There go another two: 21-2=19.

SPAIN: 4th + 27th (did not make cut). Everyone who doesn’t make the cut is considered 18. So 18+4=22. Spain do not gain any spots, but they don’t lose one either. So they have two spots. 19-2=17.

CANADA: 5th and 9th = 14. So no three spots for Canada, but they retain two. 17-2 = 15.

USA: 6th and 7th = 13. They hit the magic number! So the US gains an additional spot for next year (a spot they shouldn’t have lost but don’t get me started on that). 15-3 = 12.

RUSSIA: 8th and 11th = 19. So Russia don’t gain, but they don’t lose, maintaining two spots. 12-2= 10. (See how tight this is starting to get?)

ISRAEL: 10th. Bychenko was the only competitor, and he finished top ten, so Israel gain a second spot. 10-2=8 spots left.

UZBEKISTAN: 12th. Misha Ge ensures there is an Olympic spot for Uzebekistan. However, he is retiring due to ongoing injury, so this spot may not be used. If it cannot be used, it will be put in the pool for picking up at Nebelhorn. 8-1 = 7.

GEORGIA: 13th. Moris Kvitelashvili was the only competitor. They get one spot. 7-1=6.

LATVIA: 14th. Deniss Vasiljevs was the only competitor. They get one spot. 6-1=5.

AUSTRALIA!!!!!!!: 15th. Brendan Kerry was the only competitor (HE DID SUCH A GOOD JOB I’M SO PROUD). They get ONE SPOT!!!!!!!! Ahem. 5-1=4.

KAZAKHSTAN: 16th. Denis Ten was the only competitor. They get one spot. 4-1=3. You can see where this is going.

FRANCE: 17th. Chafik Besseghier was the only competitor. They get one spot. 3-1=2.

CZECH REPUBLIC: 18th. Michal Brezina was the only competitor. They get one spot. 2-1=1.

GERMANY: 20th. Paul Fentz was the only competitor. They get one spot. 1-1 = no spots left.

So you can see that BELGIUM, MALAYSIA, SWEDEN and THE PHILIPPINES all made the cut, but did not get any pre-qualified Olympic spots, due to how they were handed out higher up the order. It is a common misconception that all you have to do is make the cut; this is not at all true. (It got even worse in the pairs.)

Additionally, it should be pointed out that the spot belongs to the country, not the skater. Brendan qualified a spot for Australia, not himself. If the ISA wanted, they could choose someone else to go to Korea (not that they would). So even if Martinez had qualified a spot for PHI, he was not guaranteed to go to the Olympics anyway. 

Now, not all is lost! The remaining six spots will go towards the Nebelhorn Trophy, where countries who have not yet qualified fight it out for those last places. Nebelhorn is the ultimate stress factor if you’re a little country supporter. It’s also a one-shot thing. If you miss Nebelhorn, you’ve missed your chance. There are no third chances.

Regarding Nebelhorn: you will generally see skaters from countries who have already qualified there. This is allowed, it’s still a regular Challenger event, but those skaters don’t count towards Olympic qualification.

I hope I answered the question and didn’t go off on too much of a tangent. Please let me know if I missed the point entirely!

It would be great if I wake up tomorrow morning and YOI season 2 were announced on the event tonight

It would be great if I wake up tomorrow morning and YOI season 2 were announced on the event tonight.

I’m really excited for the event, So Please, please, please, give me something to be excited about!

The round up number of fans that will be there for this event are not bad at all. I estimated at least 2000 fans will come for the live viewing at 12 different spots, and extra 300 for the main event. Two thousands and more fans are enough to announce second season!

Although I know that it’s (im)possible. It’s only been two months since season 1 ends, so the YOI marketing team are focusing more on small events and merchandising. Things that will return the cost of production and bring food on the table.

Still I’m excited about tonight’s event :)

Only 12 spots left to be a part of my second giveaway to win some signed prints/instax!! Come join me on my private snapchat 😘

I was having a mildly bad day today, and right after ordering a drink at McDonald’s I spot this 12? year old kid looking at me. So I turn to them and they hold up their fist and we fist bump and they just wordlessly walk away. They absolutely made my fucking day.

I can only imagine it was because of Pokemon Go (was on my phone, plus on my wrist) or Team Instinct (people are so much more adept at spotting what team I’m on when I’m playing than vice versa) but just made me happy.

Please let me illustrate you how much I love this ship
