when in reality it is SO MUCH MORE than that

in case you wanted to know why some pokestops are kind of “weird...”

so, i though i’d clarify this because i’ve seen so many “weird pokestops” posts floating around in the pokemon go tag.

niantic, the creators of pokemon go, started with another augmented reality/location-based game called ingress (which i highly recommend if you want to play more games like pokemon go.)  this game is like a complicated game of capture-the-flag, with two teams trying to claim as much of the map as they can by linking portals together.  these portals are real-world locations, which were all submitted by users.

when niantic made pokemon go, many portals from ingress became pokestops and gyms in pokemon go.

now, here’s where things get funny.  the ingress playerbase is a bit older than the pokemon go playerbase, so it’s not uncommon for nightclubs and similar locations to have been submitted as portals.  that said, i’ve seen some really weird portals in my time playing ingress.  (my favorite by far is “stoned tentacle monster.”)

here’s why this is funny: submitted portals have to be approved by niantic to become portals in ingress (and by extension pokestops/gyms in pokemon go)

so, if you see a weird pokestop/gym during your pokemon adventures, know this:

1. someone submitted that to niantic

2. someone at niantic approved that

What was running through your mind when you saw Nimue choking Emma? You had wanted to hurt Emma but something about that snapped you back to reality so to speak

And what I planned to do to her would have been far worse then any fleeting physical suffering that Nimue could impart.  In that moment Emma was utterly powerless to stop me, and still she fought.  With a desperation in her eyes that was so familiar. 

The same look must have been in my eyes when I tried to save Milah from the crocodile.  When I tried to save Emma from the hat. The desperation that comes from knowing you can do so little,  but fighting anyway, because what you have to lose is worth so much more than your life. 

Seeing in her eyes the pain of my darkest days reached some part of me that still hated the darkness; gave me the tiniest sliver of hope to cling to,  for just long enough.

Plus if Laura wanted to generate interest for the series she's uploading in the future, it would be far more intriguing for a potential audience to believe it's in real time so tweeting it as it's "happening" would make sense.

crack theory aside laura videos were never about entertainment. laura was creating these vlogs for a class project that ended up… becoming way more than she thought it would be.

and really in reality the things that are “uploaded by laura” that dont make much sense to have been “uploaded by laura” are really more for dramatic irony. even after 2.18 when laura unwittingly helped an essential racist rise to power, laura says the videos following that are being uploaded to a private list or something like that? so technically they’re not on youtube for anyone to see. and we, the audience, happen to be on her private list.

however if you ignore that and pretend my crack theory is a thing, future laura found and re-edited all the footage she gathered and decided to upload the videos to tell a story. adding in videos she hadn’t known about during the real time of events. and she’s telling us her story.

and for those people who’d prefer to question the things being uploaded that dont make sense to ignore their real purpose (dramatic irony), something like this might make sense.

Jackson as a dad?^^

Jackson would be the kind of dad that is so extra with everything he does. If he has a daughter, he’d be so overprotective and more than likely embarrass her in front of her friends on several occasions. He likes to think that he’s cool and all the kids like him, but in reality, he makes a fool out of himself more than anything. He’d be the kind of dad that tells a lot of jokes including the cheesy dad jokes that he slips in during dinner when his daughter has company over. He wouldn’t want her going out in clothing that exposed too much and so he’ll try getting her to wear something that shows absolutely no skin.

He’ll also be that dad that occasionally lets his kids be a little reckless and have fun. Since he seems like the type of act like a child even when he’s a parent, his kids would have a lot of enjoyable experiences when it’s just them spending time together.

When it comes to being serious, I think he’d be capable of giving some good insight and helping his children out when they’re going through a tough time.

When I tell people I'm Palestinian, they often respond by saying, "do u vacation there often?" Completely oblivious to the fact that Palestine now always makes me leave there with a knot in my stomach. Is my anger irrational though when it comes to those who ask me if I "vacation"? It just seems sooo insensitive

it’s absolutely rational. your experiences are different than theirs, and while they might be oblivious, that does not give them a free pass to make you angry. so, you need to make them understand the reality and how it makes you feel. just like you, as much as i long to spend more time in palestine, every time i do, i find myself bursting into tears multiple times a day just as i walk around the city. much love to you kid <3

I personally get annoyed at antis when they say "teens are children! Don't sexualize them!" when in reality, MOST teens ARE sexually active. When I was 13-14, I know I was, and it was an experience. In HS, lots of teens have already had sex so??

Yeah like. Teenagers have sex?? And using the word “sexualize” here strips it of meaning so much. None of these people see teenagers as only good for sexual things?? They have more worth than that?? Even then, how they view fictional characters doesn’t have any bearing on how they view real people.

paperofbelief  asked:

And regarding that last anon, I completely relate to you on that. I can't handle my friends worrying about my problems because the more they worry, I worry, so I just keep to myself to stop it from happening and feel guilty when they do inevitably

I totally get you on this! I used to struggle with this so so so much and I kind of still do. In reality, bottling up emotions or problems will only make you feel worse and the more you talk about problems (they don’t have to be big ones!) the easier it becomes and the more other people will be understanding. And talking about it over time will cause less worry than getting everything off your chest at once. If your friends are worried about you that means they care and they want to be there to help. I kept things to myself for an incredibly long time and my mental health deteriorated because of it. what helped was opening up to people I could trust whether that was a therapist or a close friend. If you need help and support from others there’s no guilt or shame in asking.

im spiritually not at the same place where i was when i tried to kill myself. the illusions of weakness and helplessness white devils convinced me were my reality have been destroyed and replaced with strength larger than i knew i could achieve.

im so much more capable than i ever gave myself credit, and i won’t let myself be buried. let them buy me tombstones and tell me they’re already dug my grave, and i will let my beautiful black voice and the voices of those who stand behind me sing their evils away. and they will do what they can to silence me but until the day i die i will scream the pains of those before me who have died begging to be heard.

i don’t give a shit how many people pegged me as dead, im here now and im not going anywhere anytime soon.

The Pleiadian High Council of Seven ~ When You Create Your Reality
External image

By Daniel Scranton

“We are the Pleiadian High Council of Seven, and we are pleased to offer you our words of wisdom.

By sending out a vibrational signal into this universe, you are doing so much more than creating your reality. You are assisting others in co-creating a better reality for everyone. So even if you are only intending to create a better experience for yourself, you of course do not live in a vacuum. You live in a holographic universe. So what you intend for yourself, you intend for all others.

This does not mean that you are creating the reality for another who may or may not wish to experience that reality. What it does mean, however, is that those who resonate with the desire that you have to experience a certain reality for yourself are going to benefit. You are helping the collective by helping yourself.

And of course, when you intend for the collective to have a better future, cleaner air, cleaner water, better food, better governments, you are including yourself. You are operating as a collective now, and you are seeing that every single member of the collective has a role and is being of service in some way. You need not realize at this time what your specific role is in order to enjoy the experience you are having.

So many of you are wondering what you are supposed to do, or what you are supposed to be, but we want to assure you that you are exactly who you are supposed to be and that you will not miss an assignment. So if you want to be of value, if you want to be of service, you can focus upon what it is that you want to create for yourself.

You can show others the way. You can demonstrate to all others how it’s done, how they too can focus on the vibration of the reality that they want to experience and then manifest that reality.

So it is not selfish to want to create for yourself. What is selfish is playing the victim. Playing the victim so that others will feel sorry for you is the ultimate in a selfish act. Taking command of your vibration, accessing your power, and operating as the creator being that you truly are is of service and is of value to all others.

Recognize yourselves as big players in the shift in consciousness for the entire human collective. Because if you are aware and awake enough to know that you can create your reality with your determination, your intent, and your focus upon a particular vibration, then you are one of the ones who is leading the way for all of humanity.

We are the Pleiadian High Council of Seven, and we are very fond of all of you. That is all.”

seelcudoom  asked:

so whats your opinion on the idea that aspects are broader then what there names would imply, ei, while anger might be the most common emotion of Rage the aspect also includes other emotion based powers, while breath might encompass all elemental ability's and wind is just the most common

Almost all of my analyses are based on the Aspects being much more broad than they appear! I operate under the assumption that the 12 aspects we know of encompass all of reality– So if they were only their surface meaning, there’d be a lot of things that weren’t covered at all.

As for “special powers”, they are only limited by what someone thinks SHOULD or even COULD be possible. Other than that, well… sometimes a special power is just a special power! When Jack Noir suddenly gained all of the power of the Green Sun, it didn’t suddenly make him into a Hero of Space! I try to look at how a character affects the world around them first and what flashy magical abilities they have second.

she’s still learning how to trust again…how not to believe so easily when he tells her she’s the woman of his dreams. she knows that some dreams are a little further from reality than others. give her a couple months.
—  s.f it’s been almost two weeks now and i’m staring to feel like i don’t need you as much. i think i need myself more. 

my favorite thing that i learned from taking art history is that people through out history were just that; people. the context in which we’re taught history through grade school very much creates a divide between the past and our present, that these people’s lives only existed through the events we learn about when in reality they are just as human as us, with fear and love and humor. it was a 3 hour lecture at 9:30 every friday morning and yet is was so incredible that it flew by and i would leave every class absolutely amazed by what i had learned. honestly ever history class should be taught through the lens of art it’s so so much more valuable than just reading summaries of events in a text book.

The pitiful thing about writers is that they inflate what they write. Nonfiction is only true if it’s a government document and even then people lie. Writers have ways around that. Creativity is the biggest bitch of all simply because once you read enough books and see other worlds fighting to be saved, looking at your own one just seems so boring. So you write what you want your life to be. I as a human being avoid this. Yes I am a guilty liar. We all are. I use an alias and hide anything to give me away as much as I can. When it comes to my life experiences and emotions, I like to keep it as real as I can. Who I am directly feeds off of my emotions. So what I experience is based on my emotions in a sense. Because the truth is far more relatable than any other kind of fiction. No matter how deeply you try to bury yourself in fiction, reality and the bitchy truth of it all will be there to haunt you once the story ends. Reality is the one thing you cannot run from and it sucks more dick than a porn star.

anonymous asked:

I'm just afraid that no one will ever love because of how I look, because there's not a single place on my body that is hairless. These thoughts are so toxic, Saz. They really are... Can you imagine that a ten year old girl, just living her life with no worries at all, suddenly gets hit by reality? I was only ten when I first looked at a person and thought "I wish I had their nose". :( This didn't stop any time soon... That's what I thought with Every Single Person I saw. (1/2)

“Not one person walked past me without me thinking “I wish I had their nose”. I am so scared. I am scared that this will haunt me forever and I won’t be able to get that thought out of my head. It’s gone so far that I today just automatically think that, the first thing that pops in to my head whenever I see someone is how pretty their nose is. I’m don’t feel like I’ll ever love myself and I hate it.. (2/2)“

Bi Xwedê I understand :( I’ve never talked about it, but seriously I suffer as much as you do. I feel sad when I think about how confident I used to be when I was younger. I was such a diva and a show off lol and at around the same age as you, maybe a year or 2 older, this guy was like "Sazan, you have a big ass nose” and from that day on I never, ever ever ever had the same confidence I had prior to that. I never noticed my nose. I honestly didn’t ever even differentiate between big and small noses. Like, the concept of what a beautiful nose looked like had never occurred to me or been exposed to me until that day. I even became super super shy so that I wouldn’t bring any attention to myself because I thought that the first thing someone would notice about me was my nose. I felt uncomfortable everywhere except home. I hated sitting in class because the whole time I felt super conscious about what way my face was angled and who is looking at a harsh angle of my nose. And those thoughts are still there, constantly. I do the same thing as you, too…every time I see a small, cute nose, I automatically think how lucky they are to have such a nose. I hate myself for getting this way. Like, I can’t think of too many people who constantly think “where should I sit so that not too many people can’t see my side profile because of my nose”…it literally took over my entire being, not to be dramatic lol but seriously.

I can tell you that you wouldn’t want somebody who would love you if you had a smaller nose but not with a bigger nose. You can literally point out an “imperfect feature” (according to the dominant standard of beauty) in anyone, so for somebody to not love you because of your nose just makes them a disgusting person. I know that doesn’t help. Trust me, I’m in your shoes, but it’s a truth that we should understand.

Edible Obsession: Lavender Sweet Tea Cupcakes

When it comes to sweet treats, I’m not one to discriminate. Especially when said treats are equally as cute as they are delicious. Over the past month my LaurenConrad.com readers have already gotten the recipes to a handful of incredible desserts including mini strawberry shortcakes, palm tree beach donuts and huckleberry lemon meringue pie. As if this summer wasn’t already sweet enough, this next edible obsession will have your mouth watering just as much.

Sometimes the most unusual combinations can yield amazing results. So, what do you get when you combine a summer sip like sweet tea and the calming taste of lavender? You get the yummiest cupcakes ever. I made sure to call on my favorite baker, Lauren Lowstan, to help make this confection a reality. The final product was better than I could have even imagined. Keep scrolling to see how these cupcakes turned out…

Ever felt like a flavored syrup? Like a really good flavored syrup from a really good company with all the right ingredients to make a fucking symphony pop off in someone’s mouth… Yet you get put back on a shelf to sit and collect dust because you’re really REALLY good but only as a treat? And somehow that fact is told to you in hopes it’ll make you feel good but in reality it makes you feel… Sorta like an expired bottle of Nyquil?
Still useful but only out of desperation or when the French Vanilla starts to run out?
That shit fucking sucks so do your pal a favor and don’t fucking make them feel like expired fucking Nyquil.

As for you, flavored syrup- baby, you are a fucking delicious marvel and exceptionally unique in craft and you beat the sugar-substitute out of any common use french vanilla and hazelnut flavored pig spit.

So some people grab for those flavors more often than you. So you don’t get rotated as much as you should. Their bland-ass taste buds are not your fucking problem and I’m sorry they shelved you and made you feel less than you truly are. You are no ones ‘experiment’.

That beings said, I guaran-damn-tee that there are others out there who see your potential, who can take your flavor and mix it just right to make the most mind blowing beverage, hot or fucking cold.
