who the eff i is

Listen I get really pissed about this whole hiding in your room to eat as quickly as possible when you’re on your period during Ramadan, in your own home so that the men in your family don’t see like????

i love the line “yo, who the eff is this?!” in “non-stop” because it makes me think of someone (around hour 4 of hamilon’s filibustering) starting to wonder if hamilton’s even supposed to be there

like “is this just some weird college student that wandered in or something what are we missing here”

so they go to get washington to tell him about this weird freak who’s been holding the floor for hours

washington gets there, sees hamilton standing on the table, still talking

and has to admit, “…he’s with me…”

@ bandom tumblr, I swear to god, it’s like every single day there is some fresh drama and everyone hates someone new and we all have to pick sides or get dragged all to hell or whatever, but like… can you please for the love of god find your chill???  Literally everyone is problematic in some way, but YOU’RE STILL ALLOWED TO LIKE THEM.  Furthermore, LET OTHER PEOPLE LIKE WHATEVER THEY LIKE AND SHUT THE EFF UP ABOUT IT, JEsus LORD.  And it really should go without saying that you shouldn’t send death threats to anyone - I don’t care who they are or what they’ve done, no one deserves that.  I know most of you are like 13-17, but even you should know better.  Stop causing drama just for the sake of drama, jfc

anonymous asked:

Is it wrong that I just realized Kate Bishop is sorta a Mary Sue? I mean she says herself that she's not nearly trained enough for this stuff, but she keeps up with people who're way more skilled and experienced than her. Her first feat as a hero is beating Kang in combat, and at that point she was just a high school student with an expensive yet short education.

Oof. Okay, Anon, while I don’t really like passing judgment calls on opinions–because who the eff am I, right?–this does smack quite a few of my buttons. And while I’ve been making a point to delete anon asks that don’t go hand-in-hand with my as zen as possible approach to 2017, I can’t not answer. I’ll just try to be brief.

First, I have to say, I really dislike the term Mary Sue. Or, to be more specific, I really dislike how easily it reflects our own internalized sexism. That’s a whole side rant about how 9 times out of 10, the term Mary Sue is being used to undermine female characters who are literally doing the exact same thing as male characters, only without thousands of years of gendered privilege.

Second, Kate specifically. I just. Friend. Kate most certainly isn’t trained enough to become a masked vigilante. But neither are the rest of them. When the comics start, the original four are on their first big mission (which they screw up royally) after what could only have been at MOST a few weeks of training. (Kang is looking in time for them; they don’t have a lot of time to waste.) That training? Is being led by a 15-year-old in a suit he stole from the future. It’s not like the four boys had a summer camp intensive with Batman–none of them know what they’re doing, but they’re relying on instinct and trying hard and doing their best.

I mean, if you think about it, at least Kate has years of training with a bow and arrow and self-defense. What does Billy have to learn his ~terrible cosmic powers~?

Self-help books.

There is a character who literally learns how to use his powers using self-help books, and Kate is the one who strikes you as a Mary Sue?

No, wait. There is a character who literally learns how to use his incredible, uber-powerful, reality-warping, world-breaking powers using self-help books, who is the soul twin son of a famous Avenger, who is the demiurge, who saves the galaxy with the power of love…and Kate is the one who strikes you as a Mary Sue? The character who fights with a bow and arrow because she has years of school training with a bow and arrow?

I’m not trying to be a jerk Anon, but the concept of a Mary Sue is really so very toxic and sexist and gendered and it is so easy to fall into its trap. I just ask that people please please please stop and look at all the boys surrounding a supposed Mary Sue and wonder if the Mary Sue really exists, or if she’s just a character in the larger story about extraordinary people that is being told. (And maybe question why it is our instinct to let extraordinary boys have a pass while flagging extraordinary girls as too unbelievable.)

Next up is Ephraim Sykes, who is a) an ensemble member, b) an understudy for Mulligan/Madison, c) George Eacker, and most importantly, d) I think he’s the dude who says WHO THE EFF IS THIS???

Anyway, I haven’t been able to find out if he’s gone on for Mulligan/Madison, but that isn’t the point, the point is he’s GREAT and extremely handsome and very cool. Here are his credits!

He’s been in so much cool stuff. And I just found out looking at this he was in the off-Broadway RENT. So, y’know, that’s awesome!

“Sorry,” is the utterly unapologetic answer Stiles gets to his most recent inquiry.  Making this the fourth day in a row.

Stiles squints into her indifferent face.  “You know, Janet, I don’t think you are that sorry.”

She shrugs.  She’s not.  And she’s not even sorry about her lack of being sorry.  Stiles can officially say he does not like this girl.  In fact, he’s totally gonna fill out a comment card that sums up this whole conversation with a tried and true: ‘Damn it, Janet.’

“He really didn’t say anything?”  He’s maybe sounding a little desperate now and he drags his hand off the counter to look slightly less unstable.  “About a message to pass along for someone named ‘Stiles?’  Nothing, huh?”

“Oh you know what—” she starts thoughtfully, shuffling through a few papers on the desk below and Stiles lights up.  Her eyes dart up, hard, and she finishes blandly, “no.”

“That was mean,” Stiles says, deflating.  It’d been a week since he’d seen Derek.  They’d mentioned meeting up after Caffiend, Derek had told him to drop by Halesome Arts again, whenever, he’d be there, they could talk.  Everything had seemed fine, good even.  Only Stiles had come by, had even looked for him on the metro.  And Derek was always notably absent, in both places, and Janet was always notably unsympathetic, in one of them.

She sighs exasperatedly now, rolling her eyes.  Stands, puts her elbows up on the hutch above her receptionist’s desk and drops her chin into her open palm.  “You know, I felt bad for you the first time you came in here, Stiles, but there’s a reason people don’t go see the same play every night of the week, you get me?”

“Right.  Yeah.  I—”

“It doesn’t help that the play isn’t even that compelling to begin with,” she cuts him off, unnecessarily adding that little sac-punch in there.  Stiles can’t exactly deny it though.  It probably just gets sadder and sadder with each new mounting of it actually.

“Yeah, okay.  I’m being blown off,” he makes himself say it out loud, croaky and more broken down than he’s possibly ever been, “that’s what’s happening here.”

Barren by design, born to die?

People have talked a lot before about how the clones’ infertility was somehow related to the disease that’s killing them, due to the polyps originating in the uterus. But does this mean that if the clones were barren by design, then they were also designed to die?

Before Ethan and Susan Duncan, presumably, began to love their daughter—when the clones were only considered an experiment, not “fellow-creatures” but merely “problems” and manifestations of “intellectual desires"—perhaps the clones were in fact designed with a limited lifespan, so that the scientists could protect themselves from the potential ‘consequences’ of what they had done.

Favorite parts of Hamilton so far

“Burr, you’re a better lawyer than me”

“Okay”


“She’s married to a British officer”

“Oh, shit”


“Is that a yes?”

“Uh….yes”


“PAY YOUR FUCKING TAXES”


“Yo, who the eff is this?”


“How ‘bout when I get back we all strip down to our socks?”


“You’re nothing without Washington behind you”

“Hamilton.”

“*gasp* Daddy’s calling.”


“Who gave us those funds?”

*quietly* “France…”


“Turn around bend over I’ll show you where my shoe fits.”


“Should we honor our treaty, King Louis’ head? ‘Uh, do whatever you want, I’m super dead!’”


“You’re on your own *sarcastically* Awesome!! Wow!!!!”


“You see that was my wife you decided you decided to-” 

“Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck”


“Everything is legal in New Jersey”


“Who, who are you? who, who is this kid? what’s he gonna do?”


“My dog speaks more eloquently”


“HIGHLIGHTS”


“I’m not here for you”

“Oohhhh”


“Sir I don’t know what you heard, but whatever it is, Jefferson started it!”


“’Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow creeps in this petty pace from day to day’. I trust you’ll understand the reference to another Scottish tragedy without my having to name the play. They think me Macbeth, and ambition is my folly. I’m a polymath, a pain in the ass, a massive pain. Madison is Banquo, Jefferson’s Macduff and Birnam Wood is Congress on its way to Dunsinane.”

Thanks to Holden Caulfield

In 2008, when I was a junior in high school, I was reading ‘The Catcher in the Rye’ for my AP American Literature course. I LOVED this book and couldn’t get enough. Out of sheer curiosity, I searched the title on Youtube (Youtube was still fairly new, so there weren’t many results), and found John’s video (in 2 parts) about J.D Salinger’s book. I couldn’t stop watching. I had finally found someone who was as excited about the book as I was, and I wondered who the eff “Hank” was, who the eff JOHN was, and who the eff the “nerdfighters” were. In short, besides the ‘Catcher’ material, I didn’t understand anything that was happening in the video…but I loved it. I watched those two videos again and again, totally oblivious to the fact that there were dozens more. I wrote a “note” on facebook (remember, this was 2008) tagging all of my English class members, and I even emailed the video link to my English teacher. 

4 years later, in 2012, I had completely forgotten about John and his ‘Catcher’ videos when I needed to research “everyday science” for one of my college courses. Like always, I went to Youtube for some inspiration. When I typed “science,” the first thing that popped up was SciShow’s “Science of the Cinnamon Challenge.” I watched it, loved, it, and still remember the science of cinnamon to this day. I remember that as I was watching, I felt this strange sense of familiarity with Hank, the host. I kept thinking, “Why does he seem SO familiar?” I sat puzzling until I noticed that one of the “related” videos was a vlogbrothers video…“AHA! That was Hank! - as in- the Hank that John was referring to in his 2008 videos! They’re brothers! Vlogbrothers!” From the moment of this epic discovery, I raced to watch as many vlogbrothers videos as I could, dragging my roommate into the whirlwind, and we’ve been hooked ever since. 

I’m so thankful for 'The Catcher in the Rye,’ for John’s intense love of that book that so resonated with my high school self, and for that science class that I didn’t want to take but had to: for me, all of this paved the road to nerdfighteria, and I couldn’t be more grateful.
