what people thing

i saw a vegan on twitter the other day who obviously has zero understanding of how dairy farms work and I just 

dude I’m no expert on dairy farms but I can do my own fucking research

also a bus driver I had for like six years in school literally owned a dairy farm. which I drive past from time to time because welcome to new york we have trees and cows

all you people who think manhattan when you hear new york make me laugh. most of new york is farmland and trees and cows.

first of all the “be kind bc everyone’s fighting a battle you don’t know“ bs don’t apply to racists so jot that down

second y’all using this to silence pocs talking about important racial issues in fandom and it’s hella ugly

I'm an entp and my friend is an entp and we're the only entps that I know of. Anyways I noticed that we both get really obsessive about people who inspire us and take their words and ideals as gospel but then outgrow them and jump to another person that inspires us, usually someone in our respective fields. I was wondering if that is a common entp thing and if so do you have anyone that inspires you now

I had to think about this for a few minutes because I don’t think that many ENTPs will admit to/ will even be inspired by people, per say. 

I know when I talk, I’ll start using dramatic words and quotes to make it as inspiring as possible. People around me would be like, wow. And I’d be totally unfazed because they’re just words that I pulled out of my butt. Politician’s speeches and stances change depending on the crowd, so I just… I can’t be inspired by people. My dad, an ENTP, isn’t really into gung ho for people either. 

Also, I’m willing to not be vain for a second and say that the idea of being inspired by a person is so ew to me. Just the idea of doing something someone suggests– god I can’t. I like, half-puke during TED talks because anything can be inspiring with the right ordering of words. There are TED talks about opposite things, and they’re the same level of moving. So I have trouble with seeing the lines between inspiration and manipulative, yet clever convincing.

In response to another portion of your ask, a lot of ENTPs don’t find their field or their thing, so I’m not sure if they’ll have an inspiration directly in their field. Seems like more of an INTJ or ENTJ thing actually.

BUT, I don’t disagree with you. I’m sure other ENTPs get obsessed with people, but more commonly, we’ll be obsessed with ideas, characters, representation, and not people. All of the time. 

We do get obsessed when we fall in love or maybe meet someone new and cool, but that lasts but half a second if it’s not true love, and I’m not sure if this is the kind of obsession/inspiration you mean.

And for me, I’m currently writing a book and I’m pretty obsessed with the idea that’s happening there. My new job is solving problems for a chemical engineering plant, and that’s pretty fun because I’m just engineering solutions, and it’s flexible problem solving. I solve one thing, I move forward. (But yeah, I guess this isn’t obsession… the fact that I can move on after finishing something is good for my ever-moving mind.)

Uhh, but I’m pretty mentally bored all of the time. And I’m not sure if I’ve answered your question because I don’t know if you really mean people or ideas are inspiring you.

ok so hear me out

I’m so happy BTS is getting recognition and doing all these really awesome things, having more opportunities etc. Like the BBMAs is a huge deal, and they are doing really awesome working the carpets and interviews. 

but riddle me this: why in the bloody hell are they filming things with a nobody Disney channel actress?? 

NEWT!!

Okay I had this sitting about since December. I should have shared it sooner but well. I love this movie so much it reminded me why I do what I do

I don’t understand people who are really baffled by other languages like “wAit!!!! This letter…. makes a DiFfereNt sound in ThAt lanUuuauuage wAT???! The rulEs for garammmer and spilling is diFfrrfrent???” like yes Sharon those things are what make it…. a different language

In light of an unfortunate display of ignorance I witnessed today, let me take a moment to make something blatantly clear, for anybody that needs it:

-making fun of someone for using a fidget spinner, to the point of them displaying obvious embarrassment and shame, is disgusting. 

-when you say things like “Oh my GOD, I hate those spinners! They’re so annoying, what are they even for haha” you are being willfully ignorant. Spinners are marketed towards people with anxiety, PTSD, OCD, ADD/ADHD, Autistic people, and many other people with brains different from yours that need an outlet to focus, relax, relieve sensory-related issues, and many other things that yours does automatically. Most of the ones I see advertised even specify “For anxiety/stress/ADHD/Autism/etc”

-Making fun of someone for other behaviors such as rocking, hand flapping, echolalia, hair twirling, skin picking, hair pulling, etc is in fact, also a shitty thing of you to do. It’s also unnecessary, cruel, and humiliates the person who is doing those things.

-Don’t make fun of people who use fidget spinners. Don’t make fun of people who stim. I don’t give a rat’s ass if you think it’s unnecessary, or it “looks weird” or it “looks gross.” Don’t do it. You KNOW what you’re doing. I know what you’re doing. I’ve had it, I’m done.

Reminder that Voltron is not a romance

The writers do not have a requirement to put in any of your ships in their show.
Don’t get mad at writers for not including romance in a sci-fi kids show.

anonymous asked:

how do you feel about SU Crit blogs??

I’m kind of jaded about the SU c/rit/ical thing. So like disclaimer, if you’re a fan of the show providing legitimate criticism, that’s one thing. I respect that, like, a lot! But I’ve seen “su cr/iti/cal” blogs complain about such trivial things, down to (literally) inconsistency in Pumpkin’s tongue texture. I feel like at the beginning there was actual valid criticism, but now it’s just turned into a hotbed of negativity.

I think the problem is that some people feel like ragging on something for its flaws somehow demonstrates that you’re more objective or enlightened than those who choose to celebrate the good things about it. But how can you provide a valuable critique of something you’ve already decided you hate? In my opinion, if you find it impossible to acknowledge anything good happening in the show, you’re pretty much just as subjective as someone who is incapable of acknowledging its flaws.

The thing that I mostly don’t like is that when a fan of the show says “I don’t like su c/ri/tical’”, their immediate response is to say “foolish sheeple^tm, you special snowflakes are unable to take criticism about anything you like. these damn millennials !!!” Which is so ironic, because like, that’s just a weak response that gets tossed out by people who claim to be “critics” but are unable to handle when anyone says “hey, that’s a dumb argument and here’s why.”

I do really appreciate that they keep the criticism in their own tag rather than just the general SU one, though, so like, props. They can keep doing their thing, they aren’t hurting anyone. A lot of the time w/ ships and stuff, the actual ship tag is just filled with hate, so it’s nice that these guys don’t post their stuff in the main tag.

also–in case you’re worried this is suddenly gonna transform into a Discourse Blog^tm or something, worry not lol, we are returning to your regular programming right after this post. I just have gotten a lot of messages about this and feel like I should voice my thoughts about it \o/

a little game of stealing

Inej and Kaz have an little game they like to play because they don’t see each other much anymore. It goes something like this, whenever Inej is in Ketterdam she’ll break into Kaz’s room and steal something of his. Nothing major, just a hat, a pen, or a tie. Then hide it somewhere around the Slat. Kaz will, in return, sneak onto Inej’s boat and steal something of hers and hide it somewhere on the ship. So then both of them have until they meet again to find what was stolen and where it is hidden. And if either fail, they owe the other a giant stack of waffles.

Am I the only one that doesn’t care at all that Mon El said that he loved Kara before Sanvers have said it? Like the relationship between Kara and Mon El is messy and lacks development, so I’m not surprised that he said that he loved her so quickly. In all honesty he may not even truly love her, she’s just the first person he’s truly been attached to and not a hook up, which he was doing on Daxam. 

BUT Sanvers has been developed and I’m just waiting for that special moment that they actually say it. Not some type of “I’m saying this cause I don’t want to lose you bullshit,” but they say it cause it’s true. Cause they truly can’t live without one another and love each other, ride or die. When they do say it, it will be impactful and not easily forgotten like Mon El’s confession.
