1. - 깨가 죽으면 뭔 줄 알니?
- What is it called when a sesame is dead?
“Freckles” (주근깨 ju-keun-kkae) is pronounced the same as “dead sesame” (죽은 깨 juk-eun kkae).
2. - 햄버거가 무슨 색인 줄 알니?
- What color is the hamburger?
“Burger” when joined with the letter “n” becomes “burgern”, which is pronounced the same as “burgun” in “burgundy”.
3. - 딸기가 도망가면 뭔 줄 알니?
- What is it called when a strawberry runs?
- Strawberry jam.
“Jam” is written as “잼” (jaem) in Korean. “재다” (jae-da) means “fast”, while “잼” can also mean the adjective “재다” is added an “ㅁ” to it, turning “재다” into a noun “잼” (rough meaning: the state of being fast). So “딸기잼” (ddalki-jam / strawberry jam) can be understood as “the strawberry is fast”.
4. - 물이 있어요. 이 물들이 갑자기 흩어졌어. 그럼 무엇일까?
- There’s water. The water then suddenly dispersed. What is it called?
“Seafood” is “해산물” (hae-san-mul) in Korean. “해산” (hae-san) means “dispersal” and “물” (mul) means “water”. So “해산물” literally means “dispersed water”.
5. - 라면이 프랑스 가면 왜 싫어하는 줄 아십니까?
- 다 불어 써서.
- Why do the noodles hate going to France?
- Because they all use French.
“Use French” is “불어 써서” (bul-eo sseo-seo) in Korean, “불어” (bul-eo) means “French” and “써서” (sseo-seo) is the conjugated version of the verb “쓰다” (sseu-da / use) with the 아/어서 grammar (indicating the reason of an action/a situation). “불어 써서” is pronounced similar to “불었었서” (bul-eoss-eoss-seo, read as: bul-leot-sseot-seo), which is the verb “붇다” (but-da / swell up, be bloated) with 았었/었었 grammar (double past tense, indicating an action is done in the past and is no longer relevant to the present). Combined, we have “불었었어”, meaning “(the noodles are) bloated".
6. - 신이 아이를 낳으면 뭔 줄 아십니까?
- 갓 난 아이.
- What is it called when a god gives birth to a child.
- An infant.
“Infant” is “갓난아이” (gat-nan-a-i) in Korean. “갓” (gat) means “god”, “난” (nan) is the verb “나다” (na-da / come out) used with modifier ㄴ for adjectives, and “아이” (a-i) means “baby”.
7. - 고양이 물로 만들면 뭔 줄 아십니까?
- What is a cat made from water called?
- Water rocket.
“Water rocket” is “물로켓” (mul-ro-ket) in Korean. “물” (mul) means “water” and “로켓” (ro-ket) means “rocket”. When analyzed in a different way, “물로켓” can be separated into “물”, “로” and “켓”. “로” (ro) indicates something is used as material, and “켓” (ket) is read similar to “cat” in English. In that sense, “물로켓” means “a cat made from water.”
🐰 8. - 3월에 대학생들이 강한 이유는?
- Why are college students strong in March?
- Because it’s the beginning of a new term.
“개강해서” (gae-gang-hae-seo) is the verb “개강하다” (gae-gang-ha-da / a new term begins) with 아/어서 grammar (indicating the reason of an action/a situation). “개강해서” is read the same as “개 강해서” (gae gang-hae-seo), which is the word “개” (gae / used in slangs, meaning “frigging”, “so”, “really”) and “강하다” (gang-ha-da / strong) with 아/어서 grammar. “개 강해서” means “because they are frigging strong”.

“소름” (so-reum) means “goose bumps” in Korean, “소오름” (so-o-reum) is “소름” with the “오” sound lengthened. “소” (so) in “소오름” means “cow”, “오름” (o-reum) is the verb “오르다” (o-reu-da / go up) added a ㅁ to it, turning “오르다” into the noun “오름” (the act of going up). So “소오름” can be understood as “a cow going up”.

“Slope” is “언덕” (eon-deok) in Korean. “언” (eon) is the verb “얼다” (eol-da / freeze) combined with modifer ㄴ, and “덕” (deok) is pronounced the same as “duck” in English. So “언덕” can be understood as “a frozen duck”.

When phrasing as “해 피해서”, it takes the meaning of “because they can avoid the sun”.

In “내껀 가방” (nae-kkeon ka-bang), “내껀” means “mine” and “가방” means “bag”, so “내껀 가방” means “my bag”. On another hand, “내껀 가방” is read close to “내껀 가봥”, which is “내껀 가봐” written in a cute way by adding the “ㅇ” consonant. “내껀 가봐” is “내꺼” (mine) and the conjugated ㄴ가 보다 grammar (indicating the speaker is guessing). “내껀 가봐” means “you must be mine”.

(this is my first masterpost sorry if it’s bad) A bullet journal has a lot of uses. A planner, homework reminders, to-do lists- but understandably, some pages could use a little of inspiration. And what better inspiration than from artists? Even without a bullet journal, quotes can be a great thing to decorate journals, your room, etcetera. So, I’ve compiled a list of quotes (some aren’t very motivational) by some of your favorite artists!

Not my dream, but a girl in my class said she’d had a dream that she found this really pretty bird and was like “Oh boy, I discovered the most beautiful bird in the world!” Then she turned around and our biology teacher (who also teaches orinthology) was just standing there and he just said “Wrong” and then she woke up.
Me with pigeon wife: good morning angel, you look wonderful as always! Did you know you’re the most beautiful bird in the world? I love the way your feathers glisten!! Oh gosh I love you so much!! Goodnight my darling, make sure you get your beauty rest, not that you need it!
Shiro: Dog person. Big friendly dogs are the best but there is no such thing as a bad dog. Bury him alive in puppies.
Lance: Dogs and cats are equally good, he will probably say he is more of a cat person because he doesn’t want to make Blue think she’s not his favorite.
Pidge: Dog person, full stop. Cats aren’t bad she’s just allergic to them.
Hunk: Will obstinately talk about lizards every time people bring up dogs vs. cats because he thinks reptiles need more love. Turtles and tortoises are his favorites.
Keith: complete cat person. No social interaction can drag him away from cats. I also feel like he is actually very good at getting along with cats. Has possibly never been scratched in his life, like a very selective Disney Princess.
Allura: Very confused by this whole thing, has to be introduced to Earth animals and the entire concept of dog people and cat people. She probably decides on “dog person” out of those options because she finds out about borzoi and they’re the most beautiful things she’s ever seen. In practice, though, she loves birds. Cockatoos and the big macaws especially.
Coran: See Allura, I have no idea how or why he would find out what they are but I feel like he would adamantly decide on horses as his favorite animal and refuse to choose anything about cats or dogs.
Justin: [Taako] I spread my wings and morph into the most beautiful soaring dove, strains of nelly furtado’s I’m Like a Bird caress my wings as I fly I’m like a bird, i’ll only fly away, I don’t know where my home is, and it’s just like SO graceful and like DEW i’m like flicking DEW off the branches as I fly and I blithely float down
Clint, unable to contain himself: UUUUUHHHGGG OOHHH MAN
I’m in a very selfie bee mood lately as everything I have to do is piling up and I’m behind a couple of things I promised myself I’d make a priority. On the other hand, I have successfully completed a project that was going to take much longer so I’ll hopefully catch up soon. So, here’s me keeping up to date with my newest post, where I’ll be featuring the Natural World Tarot deck, created by Izabella Bastidas.
This is a major arcana only deck, which means that it doesn’t come with the minors (the suits). Hence, the total number of cards is 22. Each has been hand painted by Izabella to “beautifully illustrate the wonders of the natural world we live in”. Most of the beautiful, big, matte cards feature animals - mostly mammals and birds, but also some insects and a turtle. A couple of cards do not show any animals though, focusing on cloudy skies (with mesmerising colours) or, in the case of the Wheel of Fortune, a more symbolic approach.
The colour palette is soft and almost muted. The illustrations focus
on the main element (mostly animals as I have mentioned) against a cream
or black background, so they can be considered minimal. However, I like
the magical effect that the tiny flowers and other details (like stars,
moon phases and other more traditional symbols) give to the cards. The
illustrations are framed by a thin, gold toned border, and then
framed again by a thicker black border. The cards feature their
roman numerals at the bottom, but no names are to be found. This keeps
the cards cleaner and helps maintain the focus on the main element.
flowers are also found in other design elements, like the
backs, the sturdy custom designed flip top box, and the booklet - which by the way is a nicely bound and full coloured guide with 50
pages, written by Francesca Soluri. It contains the meaning for each
card, as well as one elemental, planetary and zodiacal association for
The Natural World Tarot is a gentle deck, but it manages to
be strong at the same time by harnessing the beauty and power of the
animals and the natural forces of the world. Izabella creates images
that you can’t stop looking at and that make you feel more in contact with nature, even if our circumstances restrict us to urbanized spaces. The illustrations can be purchased as separate
prints, though I just really love how a deck is a ready-made
collection of prints! Now I can only hope that a full deck is eventually
published to see more of what Izabella has to offer!
I just want a picture where Genji is meditating and a bird lands on him and tweets. And then he whistles back and it tweets again. Cut to 20 minutes later when Zenyatta finds Genji covered in birds that are singing. Genji truly is the most beautiful Disney princess
I know I am fucking late but well yeah, SM has me hyped on the theory stuff now. So here goes my two cents on it.
London : Jongin : teleportation The Victorian era has always been fascinated with egypt. They even built teleportation chamber which led to ancient Egypt. We do see jongin in London and his power is teleportation and also him on the Sphinx/ other Egyptian structure in exordium vcr
“An earlier Egyptologist was Joseph Bonomi traded as an
archaeological artist but is thought to have been a tomb raider. He is also generally considered to have been
the designer of the Egyptian styled ‘Courtoy’ tomb in Brompton cemetery which
was ostensibly intend to be the final resting place of 'three spinsters’. An interesting legend has grown up around
this mausoleum because it is the only one in the cemetery for which there is no
record of construction. This, together
with Bonomi’s obsession with the afterlife (reflected in the heiroglyphs on the
tomb), have been held by some to be evidence that it is not a tomb at all…..In
fact the tomb is one of five 'teleportation’ chambers designed by Joseph Bonomi
and built by his occult partner the Clerkenwell inventor Samuel Alfred Warner. “
Barcelona : Tao : time travel
“The World Brain organisation described in The Shape of
Things to Come of 1933, the headquarters for which is located in Barcelona,
contains echoes of the index organisation described in A Modern Utopia of 1905.
One imagines that the vast centralised database of A Modern Utopia that is
needed for the surveillance and disposition of the population would necessarily
be part of the new and improved "knowledge apparatus” Wells was
latter to describe as a World Brain or World Encyclopedia organisation"
HG wells is known as the father of time travel. His book,
the shape of the things to come predicts future history.
Also he is shown to be exiting from Kafka café. In metamorphosis,
kafka’s hero wakes up and turned into another creature. In translation it is
said to be a beetle, but in the original ne it signifies a butterfly.
Butterflies signify loneliness/being alone. Butterfly has been an icon for both
Sehun and Tao in MAMA teaser.
Arizona : Chanyeol : fire/phoenix
Phoenix is the capital of arizona
“The most mystical and most beautiful of all winged
beasts - the Phoenix, the "Bird of Flame”, an incarnation of Foiros.
"Arizona’s Wallow Wildfire has consumed more than 733
square miles (1,898 square kilometers) — an area nearly half the size of Rhode
Island — in the space of two weeks.”
Similar to what we see in yeol’s teaser, wildfire spreading
Berlin : Minseok : ice
We see minseok entering an abandoned building
with graffiti on it’s walls.
“Berliner Eisfabrik. Abandoned ice factory, one of Germany’s
oldest, which managed to survive two world wars, several fires and countless
Edinburgh : sehun : wind
“Given Edinburgh’s position between the coast and hills, it
is renowned as “the windy city”, with the prevailing wind direction
coming from the south west, which is often associated with warm, unstable air
from the North Atlantic Current that can give rise to rainfall – although
considerably less than cities to the west, such as Glasgow. Rainfall is
distributed fairly evenly throughout the year. Winds from an easterly
direction are usually drier but considerably colder, and may be accompanied by
haar, a persistent coastal fog. Vigorous Atlantic depressions, known as
European windstorms, can affect the city between October and May.”
Marseilles : Junmyeon: water
Marseilles has always been connected because of it’s port and
“Historically, the economy of Marseilles was dominated by its
role as a port of the French Empire, linking the North African colonies of
Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia with Metropolitan France. The Old Port was
replaced as the main port for trade by the Port de la Joliette during the
In the teaser we see drought is everywhere with the whole
forest being dry, but then jun sits in the public bath(I guess?) place and the
water flows in signifying his powers are back.
In reality there has been a severe drought in
Marseilles in history. Historians have noted there has been some small series
of earthquakes(soo’s power) and then the sudden flow of water in abundance to
the city. However, this water again
dried up after some time followed by another earthquake.
Almaty : Jongdae : lightning
Jondae was in Almaty which is some mile from Astana. This
makes sense because there is an emblematic tree of life and since JD is soo’s
counterpart, there is a symbolism of tree of life where he is present.
“Construction of the Bayterek Tower began in 1997, the year
the capital was moved from Almaty to Astana. Euronews’ Seamus Kearney reported:
“The view of the tower from a distance is stunning enough, but don’t forget to
take a lift to the top to get a bird’s-eye view of Astana.”
The tower represents a tree of life visited by a mythical
bird of happiness.”
“– The association between lightning and the Tree of Life
mirrors the real link between lightning and trees. Sheltering under trees in a thunderstorm can
be dangerous, as that is precisely where lightning is most likely to strike.
- ‘Beware of an oak, it draws the stroke’, or put another
way, the tree draws down power from the heavens to the earth.”
Also, the version A cards show them holding colored balls.
[This image of the
Tree of Life showing the Path of the Lightning Bolt is the most important image
of the tree to understand further theories. The Path of the Lightning Bolt is
the creative energy flowing from the Primum Mobile to the most concrete
manifestation. It determines the numbering of the Spheres (Sephirot), and as we
shall see later, the order of the paths connecting them. Above the first
Sephira, you can see Ain Sof Aur, the Limitless Light; beyond which is Ain Sof,
Limitlessness (which is invisible); and beyond that, Ain, Nothing. For those
who want to skip ahead, the Gemmatria of Ain Sof is 207, and Aur is also
207…together 414, the same as hagooth: meditation. The Sephirot are numbered
and named as follows:
1. Keter, the Crown
(white) 2. Hokmah, Wisdom (grey) 3. Binah, Understanding (black) Daath,
Knowledge (colourless). This is the unnumbered “bridge” over the
“abyss” separating the divine from the mundane. A great mystery. 4.
Hesed, Mercy (blue) 5. Geburah, Might (red) 6. Tipareth, Beauty (yellow) 7.
Netzach, Victory (green) 8. Hod, Glory (orange) 9. Yesod, Foundation (purple) 10.
Malkuth, the Kingdom (sky blue or earth brown) ]
Lyon : Baekhyun : light
Lyon is famous for it’s festival of lights, earning the
title of Capital of Lights.
“Lyon played a significant role in the history of cinema: it
is where Auguste and Louis Lumière invented the cinematographe. It is also
known for its light festival, the Fête des Lumières, which begins every 8
December and lasts for four days, earning Lyon the title of Capital of Lights.”
“8 December each year is marked by the Festival of Lights
(la Fête des lumières), a celebration of thanks to the Virgin Mary, who
purportedly saved the city from a deadly plague in the Middle Ages. During the
event, the local population places candles (lumignons) at their windows and the
city of Lyon organises impressive large-scale light shows onto the sides of
important Lyonnais monuments, such as the mediaeval Cathédrale St-Jean.”
Yunnan : Yixing : Healer
We have known from the beginning that yixing is the healer for
exo theory. Him arriving at Yunnan was no coincidence, because
“Yunnan Baiyao (or Yunnan Paiyao; simplified Chinese: 云南白药; traditional
Chinese: 雲南白藥; pinyin: Yúnnán Báiyào; literally: “Yunnan White Drug”)
is a hemostatic powdered medicine famous for being carried by the Vietcong to
stop bleeding during the Vietnam War.The medicine, developed by Qu Huangzhang
in 1902, is designated as one of two Class-1 protected traditional medicines,
which gives it 20 years protection. In China, its reputation is equal to that
of penicillin in the U.S. It is founded and manufactured by a state-owned
enterprise, Yunnan Baiyao Group (SZSE: 000538) in Yunnan, China.”
Colorado : Soo/ All : earth n tree of life
In the Southwest corner of Colorado, 18 miles at 92 degrees
from Egnar, there appears to be a “Tree of Life” and the remains of a
Buddha-figure in a Lotus Flower, pair of megalithic-carved/shaped landscapes.
