accurate representation of a school trial in sdr2
This is why you should have a cat y’all. Egyptians believed that cats repelled evil spirits.
Cats are evil spirits. They’re just the strongest so all others must bow to their greatness.
Actually according to legend, cats are guardians of the Underworld. So once you are dead if you try to sneak back into the land of the living they send you back where you came from. They protect the living from the dead.
If you ever wonder why a cat stares off into the wild blue yonder and then bolts off for “no reason…”That cat even looks like it’s accusing him of something like wait a Fucking minute here are you dead did you really think you could slip that shit passed me
I don’t know where you get your sources but cats were not fucking “guardians of the underworld”; this movie is based on EGYPT, cats were common domestic pets by the time Egypt unified, and they were representations of the goddess Bastet, ex goddess of warfare (formerly asociated with a lioness ), post-unification protector goddess. Cats were guardians of houses because they embodied the representation of Bastet, the “EYE of Ra”, the one that tells ra whatever happens. If a cat saw an evil spirit, it would tell Ra, and Ra would smite down the fucker in an instant. Bastet was also feared by evil spirits because she was the only one to be able to harm the evil snake Apep and save Ra’s ass, so you bet someone that escaped Anubis’ judgement and Osiris’ preservation would do well to fear Bastet out of fear of being caught by said gods.
They were seen as this as well because they disposed of rats and snakes (perhaps an egyptian once saw a cat killing a snake and went "OH BAST JUST KILLED APEP" and that’s how the mythos started), so they were useful animals to keep as pets, revered, adored, mourned when they died, and if you killed one you received death penalty.
The only animal seen as a “guardian of the underworld” were jackals, because they embodied Anubis and were seen near tombs, but that’s because they entered said tombs to try and eat the corpses and the egyptians based their entire Anubis lore on them.
So yeah, if you were an evil emperor that escaped the process of the gods you once worshipped, unleashed curses around the world disrespecting your own pantheon, and you came across an avatar of the goddess of Warfare that could also call upon Ra to pulverize you with sunlight, and have your soul sundered by Osiris and weighted by Anubis to go to your rightful place as someone who perished AGES ago, you would shit on your pants as well.
Side note: These don’t have motors. They’re completely momentum/wind-powered and literally just wander around beaches unsupervised like giant abstract monsters.
these are both amazing and COMPLETELY TERRIFYING
As a Canadian, I like to laugh at the ridiculousness of Canadian stereotypes. Then shit like this happens.
for anyone interested in reading more about how schizophrenia moved from being a diagnosis assigned to white, middle-class women to one used to pathologize and institutionalize noncompliant black men in the 1960s, jonathan metzl’s the protest psychosis: how schizophrenia became a black disease is a good place to start. i have a PDF scan of it, too — just ask.

Favourite moment from Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Can we take a moment to realize that out of ALL THINGS TO POSSIBLY WATCH Steve watches Saw?
No. Guys, no. This is not a reference to Saw.
It’s a reference to the 1983 movie WarGames.
The entire joke is that in WarGames, the main character accidentally connects with a government supercomputer that controls all the U.S. military arsenal. The computer asks him “Shall we play a game?” and what the guy thinks is a game is the computer trying to start WWIII between the United States and Russia.
In this scene, Steve and Natasha are accessing a hidden supercomputer with a mysterious flashdrive seemingly controlled by an AI. Natasha references WarGames and the potential of accidentally starting a war by accessing the computer.
That’s it, guys. That’s the joke. It’s a really funny joke. Whereas a Saw reference would literally make zero sense in this scene.
so if ya’ll haven’t heard, a lot of detroit residents have had their water turned off due to “outstanding bills”, some of $50 dollars or less. It’s gathered a lot of attention (probably bc it’s fucking disgusting) and national corporations like PETA have decided to do something about it!!! by paying off the water bills of detroit residents -who just have to agree to go vegan for a month. i am very angry, obviously, by the fact that WATER has been thrown around like a prize or a privilege in detroit and i’m really sad about this.
(if you want to do something to help, you can pay the water bills [or parts of them!] of residents who have been affected by the shut off at detroitwaterproject.org)
((also if you know anyone personally who has been affected by the shut off, have the call in 211 hotline to be connected the united way services))
AHAHAHAHA I ALMOST THOUGHT PETA WAS USING ITS MONEY TO DO SOMETHING GOOD FOR ONCE WHEN I SAW THE HEADLINE BUT THEN IT JUST
We’re charitable but only to people who tout our party line! You had me going for a second there PETA.
this guy said “bye” to me and I told him “you too” and I have literally spent the past four hours debating whether or not that was socially acceptable
"Bye" is an abbreviation of "goodbye" which was a contraction of "God be with ye" to which it would be appropriate/grammatically logical to respond "You too" so yeah you’re fine
well then that’s one less thing to be embarrassed about
What the fuck did I just read
whenever i’m sad i like to imagine what possible crime Steve Irwin’s ancestor committed to warrant him being sent to Australia like some Victorian gentleman escorting a lady to the zoo past the crocodile enclosure and going “do you see that great wyrm sunning itself there? quite a striking creature, is it not? I do believe I shall engage it in fisticuffs.”
apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad fuck” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
I love you Mara.
Listen. I don’t care who you are, I don’t care what server you are on, and I don’t care what you rp. YOU NEVER, EVER TALK TO SOMEONE UNDERAGE LIKE THIS.
Before the first post, I had asked him whether he wanted to rp tonight or not, and he said that he was stressed and had to jerk it off- I promptly told him I didn’t need to know that, and he said that it didn’t really matter anyways because I wasn’t a virgin. WRONG. I am 15, and I’ve never had sex and I don’t want sex. He is assuming I am my character who has had sex, but I don’t erp. Not to mention in the past, he has called me names like “boo” “babe” “bae” because he probably thinks we’re dating as well, even though we’re not. Our characters are dating. Not us.
In the past, when I wanted to stop rping with him because he made me wait a longass time because he was rping with someone else even though he had promised me rp beforehand. I wanted to delete everything our characters did and said, and he refused; he said that the only 3 options there were for her to die, cheat on him, or run away in the rp storyline. He forced me to continue rping with him in that sense because none of those fit my character at all.
His name is Dearien on Wyrmrest Accord. Please, do not rp with, do not engage him, don’t walk up to him. If he cannot separate the difference between ic and ooc, he shouldn’t rp with anyone at all.
Fucking hate people like this. I had to deal with someone like this for an entire year because they kept guilt tripping me.
