npc016:

  • Putting together info from the board game, Yang was playing as Mistral and using Ursii and Nevermores as fighting units. This might imply Mistral’s armies have beastmasters who can control and use tamed Grimm to fight.
  • Atlas is, unsurprisingly, in the north. If Remnant’s climes are anything like earth’s, they’re nearly in the North pole. Wonder if the Grimm there are any different, or if the cold actually helps to keep things relatively Grimm-free. It looks pretty small compared to the rest, though.
  • Which might mean it punches above its weight class in international relations via its technological superiority and economy. Ruby was using an airfleet in the game to attack Yang’s Mistrian forces.
  • It’s possible that’s also where the largest dust deposits are given that the Schnee family is based there.  
  • Vacuo seems to be a mountainous desert country based on what the board game in ep 2 revealed. Makes me think of the nomad tribes from Central Asia. Probably explains why Sun wears an open shirt.
  • Additional random fact - Sun Wukong in Chinese mythology was born from a magic rock on top of a mountain.
  • Entire villages can disappear overnight in the outlying regions. Wonder if that’s somehow connected to how Summer Rose and Yang’s mother disappeared. Although, why would people leave the safety of the Kingdoms to form their own villages? There might be a fic or two in that.
  • If peace and cooperation among the kingdoms are key to mankind’s survival, what Cinder looks to be doing is to break those bonds. (The flames representing the kingdoms’ locations are ominously snuffed out at the end)
  • Speculation: the plan might be to foster discord and get the kingdoms to fight each other. then step in with a new world order when the kingdoms are too weak to even fend off the Grimm properly. Might be why they are telling the White Fang the aim is to destroy the human-dominated society they live in.
  • It might be an interesting bonus if it turns out the Schnee family was behind all this in a bid for world domination.

i hate it when my “friends” just dismiss something i’m really passionate about like “oh you’re talking about that again” like shut up don’t ruin this for me do you know how many times i’ve pretended to care or even genuinely tried to get interested in what you like????? the least you could do is fake it rather than making me feel like a burden

This is one of the most hurtful things friends do

About a week ago I posted this.
I’ve been getting horrible messages like this in my ask for months, including:

and my personal favorite

After getting the message saying “Just go kill yourself” I was completely done dealing with this person’s horrible messages and replied with just an “Okay.” and logged off tumblr.
About a week later I logged back on with 17 messages in my ask, most of them from the anon. I scrolled down and at first when I logged off, the anon messaged me things like

I scrolled up more and all of a sudden they started sending me more and more messages like

This was extremely surprising to me. I thought “After all those horrible messages you sent to me for MONTHS about hating me and wanting me dead, you say ‘sorry’ and that you ‘cant be responsible for someone’s suicide’?”
But I guess the lesson goes like this:
DONT TELL ANYONE TO KILL THEMSELVES UNLESS YOU ARE PREPARED FOR WHAT MIGHT ACTUALLY HAPPEN

DON’T TELL ANYONE TO KILL THEMSELVES EVER.

THIS POST IS SO IMPORTANT I WANT EVERYONE ON TUMBLR IN THE WORLD TO SEE IT

This needs to be reblogged. I couldn’t scroll past this if I tried, I got a message like that but not for me, it told me to my friend to kill them self, I was livid! I didn’t answer it because a message like that doesn’t deserve an answer but I don’t see what is so funny about telling someone to kill them selves! I really don’t! It’s sick and it’s wrong. This person though, I take my hat off to you. You taught that bully a lesson.

Lesson learned: Cowardice runs all the way down in these anons.

It really goes to show that these people really have no fucking idea what they’re saying. Anon didn’t think twice about telling you to end your life and used it like any other insult (like “shut up” or “you’re stupid”)… until you disappeared for a week without leaving any sort of message. Then the possibility of you actually taking their advice skyrocketed and anon realized that, if you did in fact kill yourself, your blood would be on their hands. And that’s some seriously sobering stuff to absorb.
So let this be a lesson to everyone; don’t be that dumbass who thinks it’s okay to tell people to kill themselves. Because there’s a very real possibility that you’ll push them over the edge and they’ll take your advice, and when that happens, you’ll be responsible a piece of the blame.

NO BUT YOU ALL NEED TO UNDERSTAND HOW FUNNY THIS IS THEYRE LITERALLY FILLING A ROBOT WITH BULLETS, LIKE BULLETS THAT YOU FIRE FROM A GUN. NOW NORMALLY FIRING A GUN TRIGGERS THE BULLET TO EXPLODE CREATING A PRESSURE THAT CAUSES THE TIP OF THE BULLET TO BE FORCED OUT OF THE BARREL AT A HIGH SPEED. 

WHaT CAVE JOHNSON’S TURRET’S DO IS LOAD A TON OF FUCKING BULLETS INTO THE CASE OF THE SENTRY LIKE IT”S A GODDAMN GUMBALL MACHINE AND THEN USE A FUcKIN SPRING LOADED PISTON TO FIRE IT THAT IS SO UNNECESSARY AND INEFFECTIVE LIKE NO WONDER CHELL CAN RESIST SO MANY BULLETS THE LIKELIHOOD ITD CAUSE ANYTHING MORE THAN A BAD BRUISE IS LIKE ONE IN A HUNDRED

but it’s 65% more bullet per bullet

Wait a second are you telling me

that Portal is such a perfect goddamn game that they even have an explanation for why a video game protagonist can withstand being shot multiple times??????????

I have a few copies of “Playboy” from the 1970s stashed away somewhere. One of them has a letter where a guy writes in saying, “I met this really gorgeous, sweet woman, and we were planning to get married, but she sat me down yesterday and told me that she had a sex change before she met me. Mr. Hefner, should I marry someone who used to be a man?” and the response was, “So she had a sex change, big whoop. Would you be asking this question if she’d made any other change in her life before she met you? You love the woman she is now, and that’s all that should matter. If you want kids you can adopt or something.”

I feel so conflicted right now



That awkward moment when Hugh Hefner is more trans-positive than most feminists of the same era. 

omg

There’s also this awesome Should You Catcall? flowchart they published online recently.
They sometimes feature interesting and painfully honest editorials about gender and sex too, like today’s Stone Butch Blues, by a lesbian dealing with her messy and conflicting emotions about her transitioning former lovers from butch women to the men they truly are. (nb: article contains frank and sometimes negative language about gender and transitioning, and may be uncomfortable to read - the tone of the article itself is positive, but the author’s open about her mixed reactions to things).
But seriously, Playboy can be (disclaimer, clearly this varies from writer to writer, but the fact that they are willing to publish this content speaks volumes for the EiC) far more progressive than anyone would ever guess.
