what harm can it do

// okay. story time.

once upon a time, i was sitting around, browsing ebay for more Lupin the Third merch to add to my ever-growing collection. as i looked amongst the many listings, i came across a one-of-a-kind auction for some strange, weird-looking toy…

i wasn’t sure what it was. the title was “#C349 PRIZE Anime Character figure gun Lupin The 3rd” and that didn’t make a whole lot of sense, so i checked the description to see what it was, but there was nothing about the item, only information about shipping.

the pictures from the listing showed this strange toy, as such:

i thought to myself, what harm can this do? it’s only $4.99, i can afford that.

so i placed a bid, and won the auction. this was about a month ago.

today the item arrived. i picked it up from the post office, because the postal worker couldn’t bother to ring the damn doorbell to see if anyone was home, which–yes–we were home to receive the item. once home, i opened the box and pulled it out.

and i examined it.

looked at it from all angles.

“what the fuck is this thing supposed to do?”

then i pulled the trigger.

this toy.

with this friggin’ face…

when you pull the goddamn trigger…

LUPIN THE FUCKIN’ THIRD JUMPS OUT OF HIS GODDAMN CLOTHES.

BEST FUCKING 5 DOLLARS SPENT EVER. PERIOD.

Night of Days 

This is no way to be
Man ought to be free
That man should be me
Talk to the walls
Echoes down the halls
Dream of dreams
An allusion freedom seems
Write thoughts on paper by reams

Toilet flushes
Water gushes
Makes such a noise
Lack of privacy annoys
Nightime [sic] sounds
Jailer makes rounds
No freedom abounds
Prisoners are clowns

So the night slowly passes
No wine of wine glasses
No girls to make passes
Just us caged asses
Cards are alright
I play them all night

Sleep comes on slowly
Read the words of the wholly
The scriptures bring peace
They talk of release
They bring you to god
I’m here that seems odd
But His gift is so clear
I find that He’s near
Mercy and redemption
Without an exception
He puts me at ease
Jailer, do what you please
No harm can befall me
When the Savior does call me

I look back on this day
And what can I say
More of my life wasted
No freedom I’ve tasted
7:30 it’s chow time
At that hour who feels fine
Milk, mush, and toast
Not much of to boast

Sweep the floors
Talk of whores
Hear the thunder of prison doors
Do your chores
Listen to bores
How guys made scores
Or escaped distant shores

I wrote a letter
That made me feel better
Words to the outside
That’s how I keep my pride
I write words of hope
It’s really no soap
I mean what I say
Where there’s hope there’s a way
I’ll be free someday

I sleep quite a lot
Escape though it’s not
In sleep I don’t care
I forget the night mare
The bars and the screams
Are not in my dreams
I don’t smoke cigarettes
Or have sad regrets
This sleep liberation
Is tranquil salvation

Urgent-Recount email to MI tonight!

Please, if you can, email this tonight.  Apparently Donny objected to the recount effort in Michigan.  This alone is terrifying.  What harm can it do if there was no issues?  Here is what I sent, please consider adding a line yourself, to make it more personal.

Thanks!!

Script:  to 

Elections@michigan.gov

As a registered voter, I am deeply concerned with the voting issues that took place in the state of Michigan this November.  I also understand that Donald Trump has filed a last minute recount objection that will be ruled upon tomorrow, Friday, December 2nd.  I strongly urge the Review Board to dismiss his objection and move forward with the Michigan recount as soon as possible as so not to loose anymore time than we have already lost.  It is imperative to have complete trust in our election system whether Democrat or Republican.  And given the close race in Michigan and numerous reports of issues such as voter suppression, broken machines, this recount is vital.  

Not to mention that Mr. Trump has nothing to worry about if this election was not tampered with.  What is the harm in being sure?  The fact that he is even objecting should give the board pause.  

Please, I implore you to go forward with the recount.

Thank you for your time

  • Gochi fans: Okay, we put up with a lot but the most recent Super episode is the last straw.
  • Gochi fans: Let's express our frustration over this by making more fic and art than usual!!
  • Vegebul fans: Stop overreacting!
  • Vegebul fans: Stop hating our ship and making a ship war!
  • Gochi fans: ...I think we lost you somewhere.

I’m kind of glad I’m not too emotionally invested in either Ben and Martin because the moment they open their mouths and talk about S4 I expect another mass exodus aka people leaving the fandom. :/

One day, one rhyme- Day 736

A wind blows over mountains old,
Makes fir trees bend and nod.
It stirs up snow that’s icy cold
Where no man’s ever trod.
In its path, nothing can resist,
It turns stone into sand.
A king might stand and shake his fist,
Wind he cannot command.
It’s owned by no one, felt by all
And can never be fought,
Can snap the trunks of trees so tall
With no sentient thought.
It tosses giant ships about
And waves the deep blue sea,
Rushing around houses it’s shout
Can sound like a banshee.
I like the wind, for what it’s worth.
Doubtless it can do harm,
It’s constancy somewhere on earth
Does help to make me calm.

anonymous asked:

When have stydia shippers sent you death threats? We have better things to be doing since our ship is canon

I’ve had two mate!!! So don’t come here telling me that all strdia shippers are now angels because your ship is canon!!!

One I had the week I decided to admit to Tumblr that I shipped Stalia over Strdia!! So yeah SORRY that I saw this problematic piece of bullshit and chose to reveal that to my followers in the kindest way possible. Btw (I kept the screenshot:)

My second one was recently when I made a post about not liking Stiles anymore because strdia ruined him. I don’t answer them!!! I DELETE THEM, no need to answer idiots.  (It’s illegal to threaten someone over social media.)  And sending things like this could actually physically harm someone’s mental health, I know what messages like this can do to people, but if they picked on someone who wasn’t coping well , what could it do?

Moving on from me, I’ve seen some people I follow answer them…so it’s not just me. Also poor Ryan Kelley and Shelley Hennig get a lot more on a daily occurrence, just because they preferred a FICTIONAL ship that they had took part in. Even Tyler Posey got some after he said he preferred Stalia. 

Btw, just wanted to add, you think Strdia fans don’t still hate on us because we ship Marrish and Stalia, we still get it even though you GOT WANT YOU WANTED AND IT RUINED THE SHOW - look at the viewings. Enjoy you’re canon and the crap kiss that makes Dylan look like he’d rather die. 

Bye Bye. 

It genuinely saddens me when I see someone I care about (whether as a fan or a friend) promote bigoted or otherwise harmful views. And when they do that, I absolutely believe they deserve to be called out on it. People absolutely have the right to criticize and feel hurt and avoid/boycott someone over these things.

However, I also find it very troubling how it’s kind of the default for people to wish harm on that person. When someone expresses bigoted views, I don’t want them to die, suffer some horrible illness, etc. I want them to see the harm in what they do/believe. Why can’t we focus on education instead of revenge? And why is that when I express this view, people think I’m “taking the bigot’s side/defending the bigots”? 

I’m sorry, but this isn’t about “sides.” Look at any great social justice advocates and I can guarantee you that the majority of them used to hold bigoted views. Likewise, many of today’s bigots will become tomorrow’s advocates. Shouldn’t we work on helping THAT come about, rather than screaming for vengeance, or snickering and high-fiving each other every time a bigoted person is having a bad time?

You don’t have to choose between educating ignorant/bigoted people and helping victims of ignorant/bigoted people. By educating the ignorant, you stop people from being victimized as well.

Technically No Since No One Can See Them, But If They Ever Did Anything Else We’d Be Worried

PSA.

    I’m going to be blunt about this, before I go and make my coffee and continue with more memes. If you want to reblog this─── I don’t mind. That’s up to you but I’m not very happy with certain behaviours right now.

       Let me be blunt with this,

This blog will not, nor will it ever, tolerate any kind of vagueblogging directed negatively at anyone in this fandom.

   It doesn’t matter whether I know them, or whether I do not. It doesn’t matter if we’re enemies, or the best of friends, THIS IS BULLYING. This is toxic, unhealthy behaviour that situates someone in a position in which they are unable to defend themselves. This is not okay ──── this will NOT be tolerated, by any means.

    Vagueblogging on its own, can be something very hurtful. People neglect the facts of saying, IT CAN PUSH PEOPLE TO HURT THEMSELVES. Let me say that for the people in the back, a little louder,

VAGUEBLOGGING CAN PUSH PEOPLE TO HURT THEMSELVES.

   Tumblr is a communal site. What does that mean? It means that just like an out of school hobby, there is an underlying responsibility to take care of eachother. Does that mean you have to twist and turn in every direction to babysit someone you don’t even know? No, but it does mean you need to AT LEAST, be aware of possibly concerning content you post and it’s affect on others.

   Again, I’m going to be blunt ──── if you have no intentions of at least TRYING to censor your content, be it through tags, or readmores, or just not posting it at all, I have no time for you. I don’t care how much we’ve talked, how nice I’ve been, I do NOT care───

I will NEVER tolerate someone attacking another person.

I will NEVER tolerate someone HARASSING another person.

I will NEVER tolerate someone thinking it is in THEIR RIGHT to PUT DOWN someone in ANY CIRCUMSTANCE.

I will not tolerate bullying here, and that is absolute.

You are proud of your empire and material possessions, while I am proud of the Refuge of God, the Immortal.

Be not heedless: for the world lasts but a few days,
And man may leave it, one knows not when.

Look at the ever changing faithless world:
And see what happens to every house, every denizon.

If you are strong, torture not the weak,
And thus lay not the axe to thy empire.

If the One God is one’s Friend, what harm can the enemy do,
Even if he multiplies himself a hundred times?

A thousand times let an enemy assault him,
And yet touch not even a hair on his head. 

- Guru Gobind Singh 

I’m so late but like, if tv had a trigger warning like. The last episode of twd was a big self-harm/suicide trigger to me personally but like. What can we do? Nothing

I haven’t forgotten this blog or my followers. Coming back into an abusive situation after being in one where I felt loved, safe, and free has been… taxing, to say the very least. I’m thinking of taking the rest of the week off to focus on myself and on what I can do in terms of harm reduction.
