(Okay, so this post is in response to @ordainedcrown’s response to a previous post of mine, found here. I would’ve just kept the reblog chain going except there was some kind of hiccup with the theme that made it basically unreadable so yeah.)

You know…I was going to ignore this too. Everybody’s got their own opinion and all and if I’d wanted to provide citations in the original post I would’ve but…

That first argument? About Vex doing “basically the same thing” to Vax regarding his relationship to Keyleth as he’s tried to pull on her about Percy? That’s a bit of a sticking point for me. Locked on to personal thoughts I’ve been bouncing around for a while.

So, fine. Let’s go.

1) Vex teasing Vax about his relationship is hardly the same thing as Vax making a concentrated effort to scare Vex away from hers.

homestuck is over! (i got teary eyed, leave me alone). anyway, i think hussie went the right route, because:

  • johndave shippers can assume what they want. it was never confirmed if they were pale or red.
  • davekat shippers can assume what they want. it was never confirmed if they were pale or red.
  • johndavekat shippers can assume what they want. it was never confirmed if they were pale or red.
  • johnkat shippers can assume what they want. it was never confirmed pale or red.
  • rosemary, the one ship no one ever argued about, got married.

this was actually a great way to diffuse shipping arguments - you go, hussie! you go!

anytime i see a post with nursey being v romantic and dex being a memer i 100% agree but i am also picturing dex internally screaming the entire time like this boy is deeply in love but when nursey asks him out his brain just goes blue screen of death and he says something like, “yeah sure” and shrugs even though he wants to scream out a sick guitar solo right there

also dex definitely has issues communicating w people? like it isnt uncommon for people to misread his emotions or what he’s trying to say and its v frustrating/confusing bc he isnt really clear on where the misunderstandings are coming from?? 

he legitimately does not have words for his feelings for this boy and he definitely shows his affection very very differently from how nursey shows him but make no mistake anytime nursey does something sweet dex is burning with the rage of a thousand suns/living a constant litany of “be cool Will BE COOL”/lying face down on the floor in death’s sweet embrace 

anonymous asked:

*sarcasm mode on* where's the discourse on how wrong it was when Rocket brought a fucking BABY into a gunfight in gotg2 teaser? Where's the discourse on how irresponsible he is? On how he literally recruit a two years old into his mercenary team? Groot is supposed to have a childhood dammit. Where's the fucking CPS? Or wait, we only reserved the discourse for Marvel Villain (TM) Tony Stark?

Gish Gallop - RationalWiki

“The Gish Gallop (also known as proof by verbosity) is the fallacious debating tactic of simply drowning your opponent in a torrent of small, interlocking arguments intended to prevent your opponent from being able to rebut your conclusions in real time. The Gish Gallop is thus essentially a belt-fed cousin of the on the spot fallacy, as it’s unreasonable for anyone to have an answer immediately available to every single argument presented in the gallop.

Although it takes a trivial amount of effort on the galloper’s part to make each individual point before skipping on to the next (particularly if they cite from a pre-concocted list of gallop arguments), a refutation of the same gallop may likely take much longer and require significantly more effort (per the basic principle that it’s always easier to make a mess than to clean it back up again).

The tedium inherent in untangling a gish gallop typically allows for very little "creative license” or vivid rhetoric (in deliberate contrast to the exciting point-dashing central to the galloping), which in turn risks boring the audience or readers, further loosening the refuter’s grip on the crowd.

This is especially true in that the galloper need only win a single one out of all his component arguments in order to be able to cast doubt on the entire refutation attempt. For this reason, the refuter must achieve a 100% success ratio (with all the yawn-inducing elaboration that goes with such precision). Thus, gish galloping is frequently used (and particularly devastating) in timed debates, and in character-limited debate mediums, such as over Twitter or in newspaper editorials…“

hey so! i made a discord chat for people with destiny kins/ids/fictives, but the only person in it right now is myself.

right now its doubles-friendly, but if its needed in the future we can make separate chats for people not okay with doubles, and anything else necessary for peoples comfort.

additionally, if theres any topics youd like to avoid in the chat, you can let me know and ill put it on the rules page

message me if youd like to join, and reblog this if you can so more people see it!

Lonely people tend, rather, to be lonely because they decline to bear the psychic costs of being around other humans. They are allergic to people. People affect them too strongly.

Anyway I get how people try to justify Tony trying to murder Bucky for being forced to kill his parents when he didn’t have a choice, but if Wanda ever decides that she wants to murder Tony too, for him being the reason that her parents are dead, will the Tony Stans try to justify that or or is the PTSD Card only applicable for Tony?

I’m in a good mood today. here, have some Fugazi!

I was in such a good mood this morning in fact, that i treated myself to End Hits, Red Medicine and The Argument on vinyl.

Oh, and i also got The View from this Tower by Faraquet and Chez Viking by The Mercury Program, thus bringing the total amount of dollar spent on music in 2011 to £1,380.85. i have virtually no self control. whoops.
