this was before we went

anonymous asked:

Today my sister had a doctors appointment and we saw a Trump sticker on this guy's car, so we ripped it off before we went inside. TWO HOURS LATER, we come out of the doctors office and he's been sitting there the entire time waiting for us to come out with this woman who saw us from afar. He starts yelling at us and she thinks it wasn't us (it was), so then he gets super embarrassed and we drove off. Sunglasses emoji.

DUDE CAN I HUG YOU PLEASE YOURE MY HERO

I had a good ol end of the world dream where shit was really goin down and the planet was being attacked by sentient kids toys
And my family was about to go up in a helicopter to? Get into a main building and try to stop the attack ?
But before we got in the copter there was a little shop with a lady passing out herbs and spices (i guess in my dream lore these things were very symbolic and meaningful)

And like
Oh man. I asked for some thyme in a little necklace? And i was goofing and told her “i want my little card to say gamer thyme”
And so I gave her three dollars and then she handed me my card AND IT SAID CABBAGE TIME? I WAS SO OFFENDED
but good naturedly. We were goofin on eachother the whole transaction it was really funny


Also, i just remembered, before this part, we went to a trial going on and for some reason the state asked a group of young teens to handle the exposition

But
They took advantage of the opportunity to start singing and dancing trying to get noticed by a record label
So like

L: Lo siento, cariño. I had to present my essay to my teacher, the dude wouldn’t let me go unt— hey, don’t I know you from somewhere?

K: ehh…  *internal screaming*


A self-indulged au in which Lance is a single father that with all his studies and his job he barely has time to spend with his daughter (that he loves dearly), of course Math teacher Keith doesn’t like the fact that one of his favorite students seems to be neglected by her father since he has never seen him at school and she always tells him that his father is busy to even go pick her up from school.

Things changes when he sees him for the very first time, though ;3 

It wasn’t until more than half of humanity was wiped out before we realized where we went wrong: A computer smart enough to pass the Turing test will also be smart enough to fail it.

Before wizards went underground, when we were still being hunted by muggles, young wizards and witches sometimes tried to suppress their magic to avoid persecution. So instead of learning to harness or to control their powers, they developed what was called an Obscurus.

First Impressions This Season

So it’s a week into this season and every show has had at least one episode now (I think). I’ll go through what I’ve watched and say what I think so far. I guess spoilers for episode 1, but are those really spoilers?

Gabriel Dropout

The premise is that after graduating angel or demon school said angels or demons go to earth and go to school there so that they can learn to be proper angels or proper demons. The main character is a decidedly unangelic angle that gets hooked on online games and becomes a shut in, while the rest of the cast is filled in with characters equally ill suited to their roles. This looks pretty entertaining and it’s basically Doga Kobo doing what they do best. It doesn’t seem like a show that I’m going to remember down the road, but it’s a nice moe SoL to watch. The humor has been pretty good too, so I’ve got decent expectations from it.

Little Witch Academia

I’m super excited for LWA and the first episode was great. The original OVA that was kick started was fantastic and set this all in motion, so that alone is kind of cool to see. I’d call the show a moe SoL, but it’s really a Trigger SoL with moe elements. Is it moe? I don’t even know lol, but I’ve got high expectations for it and I don’t think Trigger is going to let me down. They are good at the over the top crazy, and I think that they can do a great over the top wacky magical shenanigans show. Definitely high hopes for this show.

Kono Subarashii no Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! 2 (Konosuba s2)

That mouthful of a title aside, it’s more konosuba. The animation seems like it’s even more “quality” than last season, but that doesn’t bother me too much. The kinda cobbled together sometimes almost bad animation kinda adds to the show. But there is probably a limit to that and I hope they don’t find it lol. The Star Wars credits were a hilarious way to start off this season, and I hope that it continues to amuse me as much as it has already. I’ve got decent expectations of this show, but I’m not holding out for it to be incredible.

Demi-chan wa Katatirai 

The premise of this show is that there are demi humans in the world and the teacher of this school is interested in learning more about them by interviewing them. Naturally a bunch of them end up at his school so this gets to happen. I was a little concerned about the possible weird teacher-student relationships that this sort of show can get into, but after two episodes I don’t think it will be like that at all. The cast seems pretty alright, with Hikari and the teacher being great characters. I’ll watch this show just for Hikari’s antics even if it somehow gets worse. I don’t think this will be an amazing show, but once again a nice cute SoL to fill the time.

Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon

Sort of an unexpected title for Kyoani to be adapting, but it seems to be working so far. The premise is that Tohru (the dragon) becomes Kobayashi’s maid because on a drunken adventure Kobayashi pulled a holy sword out of her and then said she could stay with her. I picked up the first volume of the manga awhile back because buy two get one free sales make me do silly things and I really enjoyed it. There is a nice amount of good jokes and then some just funny moments with Tohru being a dragon and doing dragon things. I expect this to keep me thoroughly entertained, but it probably won’t be one of Kyoani’s truly marvelous show. Gonna be hard to follow Hibike S2 lol.

So ya, that’s what I’ve watched for this season. I don’t know if I’ll really get around to anything else this season, but these at least all look like they’ll be fine watches. I have the most hope and expectations from Little Witch Academia, and I’m particularly excited that it is 2 cour. 

You may remember that Tarjei received a present from us before Christmas? We are a small group of kosers who just went to Oslo together. We actually hadn’t met each other before departure, so it was a fun (and kosy) experience. We agreed that since Tarjei had received such a nice gift, Henrik had to get one, too. We pulled some threads and contacted his mother and agreed that we could drop by with the gift.

Henrik wasn’t able to come that day, but we didn’t come to meet him: it was more to give him this gift. Tonight, his mom sent us this picture of Henrik and the present. She also wrote that he was very happy to receive it and that he wants to thank Kosegruppa DK.

I always did really well in school. I was studious, performed well, and brought a lot of outside knowledge to the classroom. I was good at classroom debates and almost always got on well with my teachers.

Except… when I didn’t…

Maybe growing up on Harry Potter emboldened me to confronting bigoted and incompetent teachers, because as early as age 10, I was ready to fight my instructors when they tried pulling shit. I had to drop out of the advanced placement program because my 4th grade teacher in public school forced us to pray to Jesus before lunch and evangelized daily in the classroom. We almost went to court because the school district didn’t care and wouldn’t do anything about it, even though that teacher was really creepy and used to invite ‘special’ students over to his house. When I switched to a different teacher, he stopped using my name and referred to me as “student number 12” and implied to my former classmates that I had died.

Seventh grade science teacher was a Creationist and refused to teach evolution, the Big Bang, or anything related to it. He told us that there was “content in a certain chapter of the textbook” that we could read on our own time, but we would not be held accountable for knowing anything in it. I harassed him with questions about it anyway.

Eighth grade abstinence-only sex education teacher was super evil and lied continuously about the effectiveness of birth control. Once, she handed a girl a piece of tape and told her to pass it around to every boy in the classroom. When she collected it again, she said, “See how it’s lost its stickiness? That’s what happens when a woman gives herself to multiple men. Each time, she loses value and desirability, until she’s just like this gross, useless piece of unsticky tape.” I trolled her throughout the program, pretty subtly, until the last week. She told us that we could write down any questions we had on notecards and hand them in so she could answer them anonymously. “Just be sure to write your period number so I know which class to answer them in!”

I took my notecard home and spent the afternoon researching different statistics, birth control options, and all kinds of sexual health information. I wrote down everything I could fit on the notecard, and asked, “How do you morally excuse yourself for lying to impressionable preteens and endangering us with false information? Don’t you think you should have to tell us that the state of Indiana doesn’t require you to tell us factual information about sexual health?” I did not put a period number on my card.

The next class, she was livid. She answered everyone else’s questions first, and then, hands shaking with rage, held up my notecard. “Does anyone know who wrote this?” she asked. I can’t remember exactly what she said, but she ended up shouting and nearly in tears. But she did read the card… and all the information on it. To every class she had. Everyone knew it was written by me, but no one ratted me out… just exchanged knowing glances. I might have been at odds with most of my peers, but even the most obnoxious 13 year old doesn’t want to be lied to about sex. Congrats, teach - you got played by a child.

That same year, my social studies teacher was a racist, homophobic, xenophobic asshole. He hated me as much as I hated him, and everyone could tell. Even kids I didn’t get along with would comment on how weird it was to see a teacher single out and bully a student. He preached to our classroom that America is a Christian nation and Muslims want to “chop off our heads, rape our women, and slit our Christian throats”. My best friend that year was my Turkish Muslim neighbor, so I gave him as much shit as I could over it. I’d write down comments he made in class, fact check them, and come in the next day to bring up the fact that he’d lied (ex. he claimed Sirhan Sirhan was Muslim). He’d slam outdated dictionaries on my desk in the middle of class and say, “Hey, Ship, why don’t you look up the definition of 'marriage’?” I refused, pointing out that it was an old dictionary made before the legalization of same-sex marriage anywhere and no longer relevant. That pissed him off, and he announced to the classroom, “With morals like that, Ship probably supports abortion!” Once, he cornered me in the hallway, standing over me with his hands on the wall above me, and told me how he was just trying to generate discussion. “Then why do you shout angrily over me and tell everyone to ignore me when I disagree with you?” I asked. He denied that he did it… by shouting at me.

He tried to humiliate me as often as possible… once, we had a mock trial, with the least popular kid in school as the suspect. I was his defense attorney. My teacher stated that if we lost the trial, the suspect would be punished in real life by being made to clean the hallway and classroom during free time. I did my best to defend him, researching everyone’s argument and real court techniques. The prosecuting attorney didn’t even bother reading the script and forgot about the case until we arrived in class, and made up a completely fake new story unrelated to the project and laughed and joked his way through the trial. The jury hated the kid who was the suspect and was eager to see him punished, so we lost the case. My teacher swelled with delight and said, slyly, “As you can see, winning a court case depends entirely on the quality of your attorney. If he’s bad, you’re going to lose.”

This same teacher had a fetishistic obsession with Abraham Lincoln. His entire classroom was covered floor to ceiling with images, masks, cardboard cutouts, and sculptures of Lincoln. On the anniversary of Lincoln’s death, he cosplayed him and then had everyone sit in silence for ten minutes while he stared at Lincoln’s largest portrait with his hand over his chest and swayed back and forth, moaning softly. Even the students who liked him were unsettled by this.

This teacher was born on February 12 and apparently convinced that this gave him a spiritual connection to the 16th President of the United States. Once, I cracked a joke that it was a good thing he wasn’t born on April 20th, or it might be Hitler’s face papering the classroom. He did not appreciate this.

I was meant to be with him,” she said,
“That’s one thing I do believe. I believe that we were right for each other at some point and that we were meant to be once upon a time. But in this cruel world of reality life changes before you even have time to blink and suddenly everything you had ever known is no longer familiar to you. I do believe that he was supposed to be my last love, the person that I would grow old with. But I also believe that I fell in love with him too soon, that my eyes landed on him before they were supposed to and perhaps we fucked everything up because we went against fate and met way before our time. It’s like we were so perfect for each other but the universe found ways to tear us apart. It’s like when you’re in the sea and you’re trying to catch the waves with your hands. You know.. When it’s right there in front of you but absolutely impossible to catch.
—  Excerpt of a book I’ll never write

Okay, so I just thought of something where the Voltron writers could’ve be hinting at Black Paladin Allura since season one.

In season one, we see flashbacks to when Allura was put into the crypod by her father, but we also get to see the conversation they had before everything went down.  We now know for a fact that Zarkon, who was attacking the Castle in her flashback, was the Black Paladin, but when Allura was talking to her father, she said this:

How would they form Voltron though?  Zarkon is the one attacking and he’s the Black Paladin.  They have all the lions, so Allura suggesting for them to form Voltron could be hinting that she is also able to pilot the Black Lion.  I mean, she did say, “WE need to form Voltron,” so it’s like she’s including herself in on this fight with her father because we can see that Alfor was most likely the Yellow Paladin.  

I mean, this might be a plot hole or something, but it also could be a really well hidden foreshadow to Black Paladin Allura because I don’t think Keith will want the job.  I see Keith handing the torch over to Allura in season three or the Black Lion choosing her over Keith.

Undeadpool

So, home-brewed science-fantasy system called inertia. We’re on a mission from death, who gave us presents before we went. Mine was, he made me undead. But I keep forgetting. We’re fighting an EXTREMELY powerful psionic guardian trying to rescue one of Death’s favourite two minions from a coffin chained to the roof. (Yeah, our DM has a hell of an imagination.)

DM: “So. As you’ve done the most damage to the chain Tonauac, the guardian places his hands together, and a tiny ball of light appears above him.”

Scientist: “I step away.”

Me: “Wwwwwhy?”

DM: “The heat and radiation of a miniature sun shines down on you. You take…” Rolls a LOT of dice. “125 damage.”

Me: “Aaaaaaaaand I’m dead. Welp. Tell my family I love them, make sure my AI goes for a good price and have it wipe my browser history before it goes…” As I’m handing over my character sheet. 

Captain/Necrolyte: “You’re a zombie, I can stick you back together, don’t be so dramatic.”

Me: “Wait, really?”

DM: “Yeah, she can regenerate you from a speck of blood.”

Me: “I’M DEADPOOL WITH A SNIPER RIFLE.”

DM: “Your rifle is melted.”

Me: “I’M DEADPOOL WITHOUT A SNIPER RIFLE.”

Dean Forester - Jared Padalecki

The series had already fired two Deans when Rudofsky and Casey got started as casting directors. (Anthony says he had originally been conceived as a more “alternative” character; when the part changed, it had to be re-cast.) They weren’t even focused on finding a new Dean when a manager called, telling them they had to meet his client before he went back to Texas the next day.

“We said, ‘Well, we’re not auditioning that part yet,’” Rudofsky said. “He’s like, ‘I’m telling you, you have to meet this kid.’”

The two agreed, and soon enough, in walked Jared Padalecki—then 17, going on 18. And sure enough, he nailed it.

“We didn’t say anything to him,” Casey recalled. “We just gave the eye look, and asked him to step outside.”

With that, Rudofsky ran to Sherman-Palladino’s trailer and asked her to read Padalecki for the role before his flight back to Texas. She agreed, he read, and he left.

Then, Rudofsky said, Sherman-Palladino turned to her and Casey, and said, “Well, that’s not fair.” When they asked why, she said, “You can’t cast him on the first try.“

“She said, ‘It can’t be that easy; read more guys,’” Casey said.

And so, they did—but still, Padalecki landed the role.

Obscurials

are the result of a child knowingly attempting to suppress their magic. They are not the result of abuse. A child who isn’t abused can also become an obscurial if they are motivated to repress their magic for whatever reason.

Before wizards went underground, when we were still being hunted by muggles, young wizards and witches sometimes tried to suppress their magic to avoid persecution. So instead of learning to harness or to control their powers, they developed what was called an Obscurus.” - FBaWtFT

Harry didn’t know he was a wizard until he was eleven. He never tried to repress his magic. Instead, his magic would pop out in small acts of rebellion now and then. Snape didn’t suppress his magic either. Neither did Merope.

There is no plot hole there, you’re just not paying enough attention to detail and wording.
