it bothers me that Kansas and Arkansas are not pronounced the same
I’m from the UK and I have been pronouncing Arkansas as Ar-Kansas my whole life
For all my non-american friends, Arkansas is pronounced ark-an-saw
Yes, but if you live in the part of Missouri that calls itself Missoura we sometimes pronounce it Ar-kansas.
My daddy was not nice to me! Okay?
Dragon Age Inquisition got pushed back to Nov 18th, which is obviously not my birthday. Taking this as a sign as well, though not a good one as I hear some LIs are only available to certain sexes. Ah well, as long as I have someone who doesn’t annoy me and the combat isn’t as terrible as Origins (a game where you have to spam killallhostiles just to keep it interesting) I suppose I’ll be happy.
I don’t get ship wars.
Like, what is the point of gettin angry about what particular fictional characters you think should be doing the horizontal tango?
People get upset about who people they don’t even know do the horizontal tango with. Explain that one to me.

Holy shit. I’ve got ASMR.
I spent so long trying to figure out what that weird tingly peaceful feeling was when I watched certain things. Like that scene in Mary Poppins where she’s giving the kids their medicine, those few seconds of spoons filling were just the most amazing things because it made me feel amazing (There’s also the Lesbomancy scene in the Witcher 2, the kazoo bit and the woman with the light bed in that one episode of Penn and Teller’s Bullshit on New Age medicine, also all of Bob Ross if anyone else was looking for more). But no one knew what I was talking about so I gave up trying to figure it out.
I watched this Cracked video today about types of videos the internet has too much of and the guy brought up ASMR trigger videos. I’d never heard of them before but then he sort of explained what ASMR was and I quickly googled to see for myself and holy shit it was like a lightbulb went on.
Here’s a link to a few tests, see if you get any nice tingles too. http://www.asmrlab.com/common-asmr-triggers/
i have limited sympathy for people who get told “no” after a public proposal because public proposals are pretty much emotionally abusive
if you think it’s kinda cute, you can discuss it beforehand and then do a staged one later
but putting someone on the spot in front of a crowd of strangers (or worse, friends) and demanding they give you a yes or no answer to a complex question which will affect the rest of their life is
really not okay
I got Spider-Man!
SO THERE’S THAT.
Mystic and Superman…. o_O…. sure quiz, sure.
ahahahahahaha I got LOKI and THOR. :P
HAHA! I also got Loki and Thor.
Loki and Iron Man. Are we talking threeway? Cause I’m cool with that.
Dragon Age Inquisition comes out on my birthday, if they stick with that release date. I find this significant.
When you send a girl home from school because her shorts or too short, or her clothing is immodest, you are telling her that hiding her body is more important than her education. You are telling her that making sure the boys have a distraction-free learning environment is more important than her education. In a way, you’re telling her that the boys are more entitled to an education than she is, and that isn’t acceptable.
