Ask me anything
There are a surprising number of good episodes in Buffy season 1! Despite the plot being sucky (the Master is the worst), there’s the nightmare episode, and the invisible girl episode, and the episode where they EAT THE PRINCIPAL.
And then there’s all the recurring characters that were introduced, like Amy, and Darla (literally the first character you see in the whole series!)
Oh man, but the CLOTHES…!
I don’t think I’m remembering the scene you’re talking about. (the one I’m thinking of I don’t think happened in season 1)
It’s the one where Xander and a group of mean kids get possessed by the hyena spirits. And the mean kids literally eat Principal Flutie.
Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
It’s a nice idea and all but no, no it is not this easy and this simple to just up and do what you enjoy doing and survive off it. Even the “making way more money doing what you hate” doesn’t actually make it all that easy to keep a roof over your head.
Unless you live with your parents that “warm home” is gonna be at least $700 a month counting minimal utility usage and food probably another 200 if you’re living off really unhealthy junk.
And if it was so easy to just go start a store or a business there wouldn’t be so many people struggling regardless of their SUPERB fucking talent and skill, namely most of the people I know on the internet.
This is a really sweet comic but a really well meaning person but it’s so unrealistic that it serves more as a painful reminder of reality’s harshness.
This whole ‘do what you want as if money was no object’ is such a privileged point of view. Sorry, but money IS an object.
And that’s also not counting people who literally cannot disobey their parents because they’re unemployed or trying to find work and their parents are the ones supplying their food and the roof over their head. And it’s also not counting college students and graduates who are drowning in relentless debt and facing complete destitution just to pay for their education since you need a fucking degree to get any sort of well-paying job nowadays.
Money may not buy YOUR definition of happiness but god damn, ninety-thousand dollars that I’ll probably never earn in my entire life falling into my lap would solve practically all of my problems and lift a whole ton of stress off my shoulders. Money fucking matters in this society. It really, REALLY fucking matters.didn’t even rly read the comments but this comic is truly the epitome of white people logic
not to mention people whose disabilities prevent them from ~chasing their dreams~
Today I’m going to talk about DRM, specifically always-on DRM. I’m going to espouse a mostly-unpopular opinion, and I am going to explain what I think the actual problem is, rather than the perceived one that tends to cause shouting matches. Hopefully by the end of it, you will also understand what the design challenges really are, what possibilities there are, and why it is not actually so bad.
Doesn’t SimCity already have those multi-player features though? I’ve never actually played multi-player but you can have other people build cities in your region and sell/trade power, water, sewage capacity, garbage/recycling pickup, and all of that with other cities in the region.
It still doesn’t make me want to play SimCity online.
I’m imagining them making it so that you can trade directly with any other player, not just players building in your region. But then I’m afraid it would turn into something like the Diablo III auction house, where you don’t bother getting anything yourself but rather buy it all because it’s cheaper and easier.
IDK. I just feel like SimCity would have to be a much, much different game in order for multiplayer to be a positive for most players. Perhaps so different that it wouldn’t be a real “SimCity” game anymore.
[Mads Mikkelsen] on political correctness: He is rather more dismissive of the current surge of must-see Danish crime series on television. Too politically correct, in his opinion, with all those feisty, polymath policewomen pursuing bad guys into dark basements. “That doesn’t happen! I don’t mind – the girls are great actors and it’s great there is a medium where they get work – but there has to be a balance between what is real and not real. I will never be a fan of any kind of political correctness: I think it’s instant death to creativity.” (x)

Seizure First Aid.
Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it.
100% correct medical information on tumblr for once; also consider calling 911 if you don’t know how often the person has seizures and ESPECIALLY if the seizure has lasted 5 minutes or more (which is why the watch is critical)
This is so important!
Really good friend of mine from work back home had seizures a few times on the job. This is crucial information.
WHEN TO CALL 911 FOR SEIZURES (taken directly from the Red Cross CPR/AED/First Aid handbook)
- The seizure lasts more than five minutes
- The person suffers multiple seizures consecutively without any sign of slowing down
- The person does not regain consciousness
- The person is injured
- The cause is unknown
- The person is pregnant or has diabetes
- The person is an infant or young child and the seizure was brought on by a high fever
- The seizure happens in water
- The person is elderly and could have suffered a stroke
- This is the person’s first seizure
Basically, be safe. If you’re not sure of the situation, call 911.
“ [F]or the first several years the SAT was offered, males scored higher than females on the Math section but females achieved higher scores on the Verbal section. ETS policy-makers determined that the Verbal test needed to be “balanced” more in favor of males, and added questions pertaining to politics, business and sports to the Verbal portion. Since that time, males have outscored females on both the Math and Verbal sections. Dwyer notes that no similar effort has been made to “balance” the Math section, and concludes that, “It could be done, but it has not been, and I believe that probably an unconscious form of sexism underlies this pattern. When females show the superior performance, ‘balancing’ is required; when males show the superior performance, no adjustments are necessary.” ”

And then people urge me everything is fine, of course it is, when you’re ignoring statistics that is.
Fun fact: SAT tests predict college performance pretty well for men, but they strongly underpredict college performance for women. http://spp.sagepub.com/content/early/2012/12/20/1948550612469038.abstract
I think I’ve reblogged this before, but that study needs to be shared.
