People don’t like love, they like that flittery flirty feeling. They don’t love love - love is sacrificial, love is ferocious, it’s not emotive. Our culture doesn’t love love, it loves the idea of love. It wants the emotion without paying anything for it. It’s ridiculous.

How to Know if They Like You by Myers Briggs

tabby-flenderson:

ENTP~ Prove themselves with arrogance and arguing
ENTJ~ Hyper critical
ENFP~ Can’t stop smiling more than usual
ENFJ~ They will act like perfection itself before you
ESTP~ Awkward
ESTJ~ Ultra listener and attentive
ESFP~ Make complete fools of themselves, in a cute way
ESFJ~ Brags
INTP~ Intense trolling
INTJ~ Stalkerish
INFP~ By the time you figure it out they like someone else
INFJ~ You don’t know and never will
ISTP~ Confronts you directly
ISTJ~ Ultra intense eye contact
ISFP~ *blushes
ISFJ~ Lots of little glances and smiles

I can never read Samurai Champloo that isn’t Fuu/Mugen/Jin (or any variation of that OT3); it’s like, I feel dirty if I do.

So whenever an OT3 fic doesnt pull it off that well, I feel like the story betrayed me!

and really, this all silly and irrational, but there you go! @___@

Amazing Illustrations by Artist Chiara Bautista

on facebook

Chiara Butista aka MILK is an enigmatic artist from Tucson, Arizona. Her work is insanely detailed and appears to be riddled with symbolism. Many of her subjects, which sport antlers or tentacles, are captured in chaotic, angst-ridden moments which are balanced perfectly by femininely decorated backgrounds and cartoonish animal friends. You could scour these images for hours and still find new details every time you revisit them. His work is rich with symbolism inspired cephalopods, falling planes, deer, piercing arrows, wounds,  teddy bears and drugs which may be as much a symbol for obsessive love.

There is a reason this amazing persons work is the theme for my blog. Everything she does is absolutely wonderful.

Dark Ages, Schmark Ages. The De-Textbook cuts through that and so much more fake-fact bullshit.

cloudy with a chance of witch burning

your periodic reminder that a good chunk of Europe basically shat the bed for a few centuries while everyone else kinda did their thing.

I am sorry I’m going to be that person.
This map is extremely inaccurate.
1) China was not going through business as usual China was going through the TANG DYNASTY i.e. the Golden Age of Chinese culture, which would lay down legal and social and poetic norms for the rest of Chinese history. The Tang is so influential that a lot of languages call Chinese people 唐人 (People from Tang.) (We call Chinese people “people from Qin” so.)
2) Japan is _first becoming literate_ during this time period (due to the influence of the Tang they adopt Chinese script), which is a BFD for poetry, religion, politics, society. Japanese court culture develops, which near the end of this period (11th century, around the time Europe enters “high middle ages”) will produce The Tale of Genji (by a totally awesome woman named Murasaki),widely regarded as the world’s first novel because of it’s deft use of irony and social commentary.
3) The southern part of Korea is experiencing the emergence of Unified Silla, a state that will last the entire period and will see the importation of Chinese and Indian buddhism, the construction of the first Confucian college in Korea, and so on.
4) In Mesoamerica, the Mayans are inventing astronomy, writing (the third and final independent invention of writing in human history), and a whole crapload of other stuff. This is the triumph of their culture.
5) The Umayyads in Spain are a massive center of technology, learning, and (comparative) religious toleration.
6) The Eastern Roman Empire, which spans both the green and yellow portions of your map, isn’t doing too badly either, bouncing back after losing territory to the Caliphate.
7) The Polynesians are colonizing the ENTIRE PACIFIC using amazing advanced navigation technology not rivaled until the INVENTION OF GPS.
8) I am not equipped to talk about Sub-Saharan Africa in detail (cue rant about how we never learn about subsaharan africa in the western educational system) but you can bet there are some major, amazing developments going on there too. I’d be shocked if there weren’t.
9) HOLY SHIT INDIA.
10) OMG SOUTH EAST ASIA. SOUTH. EAST. ASIA.
11) THEY WEREN’T BURNING WITCHES IN EUROPE DURING THE MIGRATION PERIOD (dark ages). Witch burning took off in the EARLY MODERN PERIOD, nearly 1000 years after this. Europe was going through some tough shit, which would leave them backwards compared to the rest of the world for 1000 years, but also there were some amazing things happening there, at least have the decency to be like “angry dudes with swords stabbing people” not WITCH BURNINGS FFS.
12) And ABSOLUTELY Islamic Caliphate was a totally amazing flowering of intellectual, artistic, and spiritual culture, a mixing pot between a thousand cultures and languages, and totally amazing. Don’t in any way want to diminish that in any way.

I’ve always winced when seeing the original picture, so thank you binghsien for that excellent commentary!
To add:
5) Yep, Spain was mostly Muslim back then and was doing a lot better than other Western European countries in terms of retention and transmission of classical knowledge. 
8) Around 1000 AD was a major wave of Bantu migration, carrying a new technology of advanced ironwork throughout Africa:

i want to achieve “she’s adorable and i will protect her at all costs but also i am slightly frightened by her power”

rachellephant:

the most important thing to me ever is bi kids knowing that it’s ok to be 10% attracted to women and 90% attracted to men or 10% attracted to men and 90% attracted to women and still feeling ok to identify as bi, and still feeling like their identity is valid, and still feeling like they can lead fulfilling lives with both (or other) genders. like that’s just so fricking important.

I bought my friend an elephant for their room.

They said “Thank you.”

I said “Don’t mention it.”

Is there a joke here that 15 thousand people get but I don’t?

PLEASE EXPLAIN

please tag your snk, snk is an alright series but it makes me really uncomfortable because its creator is a war crime apologist and has trivialized the murder of millions of koreans, chinese, indonesians, filipinos, vietnamese etc and its really disturbing to see literally every day how the snk fandom does not care and is pretending nothing is wrong with that

some sources!

also id like to apologize for generalizing the snk fandom; i did not intend for this post to gain attention or become a hub for information and therefore let my emotions get a little ahead of me, and it seems that the biggest problem is that most people do not know anything about this

i’m reblogging this again because after reading up on these links, i’m pretty overwhelmed. i know just about everyone i follow posts snk and loves it, but personally i really can’t be a part of the fandom anymore.

i know, for me, my beliefs and biases bleed into my stories and reflect my heart. i find my own work so close to who i am that i really can’t accept this kind of behavior and racism from an author i previously supported.

plus Mikasa’s character, one of my favorites, is pretty ruined for me. being named after a battleship that had control over Korea, her story seems disgustingly contrived, given that she is almost sold into sex slavery as a child and THAT is precisely some of the war crimes committed by Japan to Korean women. in essence, Isayama respects and admires war crimes and believes Koreans should be thankful to Japan for colonizing them. 

that’s fucked up, dude.

i would appreciate if people tagged their snk, too. thanks guys.

Crows are scaryThey
use tools
Can be taught to speak (like parrots)
Have huge brains for birds
like seriously their brain-to-body size ratio is equal to that of a chimpanzee
They vocalize anger, sadness, or happiness in response to things
they are scary smart at solving puzzles
some ravens stay with their mates until one of them dies
they can remember faces
SIDENOTE HERE BECAUSE HOLY SHIT.  They did an experiment where these guys wore masks and some of them fucked with crows.  Pretty soon the crows recognized the masks = douchebag.  But the nice guys with masks they left alone.  THEN, OH WE’RE NOT DONE, NO SIR crows that WEREN’T EVEN IN THE EXPERIMENT AND NEVER SAW THE MASK BEFORE knew about mask-dudes and attacked them on sight.  THEY PASSED ON THE FUCKING INFORMATION TO THEIR CROW BUDDIES.
They remember places where crows were killed by farmers and change their migration patterns.
Guys I’m really scared of crows now.(q) 

Yeah but have you seen this 


YEAH! THEY ALSO PLAY FOR NO EVIDENT REASON OTHER THAN FUN AND THEY LOVE THE SNOW!Crows are seriously the coolest birbs ever.
