throttled

Alright guys, I asked Mark and Steven about Garridebs!

Mark, very sincerely and personably (make of that what you will), agreed with me about the moment’s emotional importance, and expressed that he had really hoped to include the scene. He said that they (I can’t remember his wording exactly) either tried it or he ran through some possible scenarios and it wouldn’t have fit anywhere (this depends on the different opinions of “was Johnlock intended to be fulfilled or not”). He mentioned the writing phenomenon of “kill your babies” when saying how much he wanted to do the scene. He even called it “throttle the nursery” because it was such a big blow to him.

Steven said that there have been plenty of scenes where Sherlock and John’s care for each other has been shown (his exact emphatic words were “yes yes they would just say wow this is my favorite person!”) and so the Garridebs scene would not be a revelation of that care, as it was in the novels in Victorian times. He said the moment itself is “a retelling of The Red Headed League, but not as good”. I could tell that this is a question he’s been asked before or has thought on a lot, because he delivered the answer very straightforward and with an air of, he’s tired of explaining this and finds it very obvious.

So, interpret all this however you want, I mean shit I still have my strong opinions in this. But I’m just very glad to have been able to ask them both, and in a more private and informal setting, and actually get answers. @teaandqueerbaiting @northray @isitandwonder @the-blue-carbuncle @skulls-and-tea @themanandthemachine @sherlock-overflow-error @marcespot @monikakrasnorada @thedepthsofmyshame @missmuffin221

small brain: playing all overwatch characters on default sensitivity

big brain: throwing down mccree’s sensitivity to 2 and throttling your mouse like some kind of fucking animal

If Cole & Lili were a PR thing, there agents would have gone full throttle with magazine rags and the paparazzi.. Example Micheal Jackson and Lisa Marie.. These type of things happen when one of the 2 couples career is failing.. Cole & Lili's careers are fine, they seem happy were they are, they like to to tease but yet they are not ready to go public & I don't blame them at all.

Precisely….their careers are flourishing! And why would, in 2017, unless they’re a Scientologist or a very conservative Christian (and primarily interested in only appealing to that particular market), need a beard? Especially when they appear on a gay positive show and have talked about seeking more, not less representation?

Given how popular Bughead and LiliCole are purely on a low key level, if this WERE all scripted publicity, they’d be much better. I also love how she continues to fully ignore that they’re out in public (sometimes) because A) they have every right to be and B) they LOVE to troll….and, honestly, based on what we’ve seen, walking around, looking at retro, tourist-y shit is exactly the sort of thing both of them would be completely down with, ditto going to arcades, possibly theme parks, etc….because while they’re both into intellectual pursuits, they also clearly like vintage (a lot) and, you know, FUN

my aesthetic is alex danvers looking like she wanted to throttle mon-el for havign the audacity to even breathe in the same airspace as her when he spoke to her

Net neutrality is in danger —  and it could affect your ability to play games online

  • The days of playing online games on your standard internet plan may be in danger if a new proposal from the Federal Communications Commission is passed.
  • Under the FCC chairman’s proposed rollback of net neutrality rules enacted in 2015, cable and internet providers might theoretically be able to charge more based on how you use the internet — and it would have big implications for the gaming world.
  • Recently, the FCC’s chairman, Ajit Pai, proposed a rollback for a number of regulations enacted in 2015 intended to keep the internet “open and fair,” according to CNN.
  • These regulations are meant to preserve net neutrality — the idea that your internet provider can’t charge more based on the sites people visit and services they use. Pai’s proposition, if enacted, would get rid of those regulations.
  • If Pai has his way, regulations that prevent your internet service provider from charging you according to the online services you use will go away.
  • If that happens, your ISP might start looking for ways to milk more money out of you. For example, it could theoretically throttle your download speeds from Steam or make your internet connection to Battle.net slower once you hit a certain data cap. Read more (5/10/17)

The real reason some grimoires are so cryptic

Sometimes grimoires obscure things with secret codes or don’t explain certain steps because logically someone at the time would have known how to do what was a common action of the day. But sometimes they’re cryptic and mum on the actual meaning of certain designs and symbols for seemingly no reason. But I think the reason is simply: magicians.

To go into further explanation and not be so cryptic: I just wrote down a spell in one of my journals, and where a couple of components would go that could be changed and customized depending on need, I just left brackets there with nothing inside them, to let myself know that the chunk is swappable, it’s a variable. In another part I drew a dashed diagram with arrows and no other explanation–it’s the instructions for a certain hand-motion to make at the end of the spell.

There are no full explanations written down simply because I’ll know what I mean, and when I thought about that at the end, I said: “fuck it, it’s my book, if someone finds it when I’m dead it’s not like the book is for them.” And that’s the explanation behind a ton of crypticness: in the end, a lot of these books are made for personal usage or would come with an oral tradition where one person would explain it to another. If you’re not that person or not in that oral tradition, then what’s written there isn’t for you to understand, and cracking it open is going to require intuition, divination, outright necromancy (throttling the author’s ghost for the answer), or just making something up and seeing if it works. It’s not really on every magic-user to write a personal magic book that will be perfectly instructive to people born generations after they die. It’s on us to try to figure out their cryptic bullshit anyway.

Talk shit, get hit

Our party, a human bard-barian (me/Telma), a catfolk monk (Skarn), a shadowswyft duskblade (Throttle), and an elf beastmaster (Mai), are participating in a combat tournament. Before the final bout, the finalists meet for a feast for good sport and also to secure a sponsorship from the local noble coalition (they love some fightin’). During the introductions of the finalists to the nobles, we overheard some unsavory talk about the race of one of our compatriot (Mai, specifically).

DM, as a noble: Ugh, they’re letting elves in now?

Telma: I find something to throw at that guy

DM: Well there’s a goblet right next to you…

Telma: I throw the goblet.

Skarn: THROW ME

Telma: I throw Skarn too.

Skarn: YES

DM: You’re throwing the goblet and Skarn?

Telma: I’m throwing the goblet, and then Skarn, and then Skarn is gonna catch the goblet and throw it at the noble.

Skarn: HELL YEAH

DM: …I’m gonna need both of you to roll some Athletics and Acrobatics

Long story short, we aced our rolls, gave a racist nobleman a concussion, and still won the sponsorship due to Throttle embarrassing the other team during their pitch using phantom fart noises.
