A prayer for all 239 passengers abroad flight my country’s local carrier on Flight MH 370 which disappeared off the South China Sea earlier today.
News is saying that two of the passengers were travelling with stolen passports, so given the excellent track record of MAS, the plane itself and the veteran pilot, I’m expecting the worst….
This is what pisses me off about Tumblr. You all say you’re so accepting and you don’t want to offend anyone, but then thousands of people reblog something like this because Christians aren’t the minority. You wouldn’t want to offend a Muslim, and if this were offensive to them or another minority, there’d be so many comments about it. But everyone is completely fine with offending a non minority. “You’re not oppressed, you can’t talk!” You know what? I’m a Christian and this offends me and my faith, but nobody’s going to care about that because I’m not oppressed. Tumblr is hypocritical and that needs to stop.
Amen to the comment
Oh my precious lambs:
Examine why you are being offended. Because this is literally how a sunset works. There is not room for debate on this question. There is less room for debate on this than there is on just about any other thing. We are not reblogging because Christians aren’t the minority, dear ones. We are reblogging because after the debate a few days ago, creationists were given the opportunity to pose a question for non-creationists. One of these questions was:
"How can you explain a sunset if their is no god?" (sp.)
Questions, we assume, are posed so that someone might answer them. And yes, there is an answer of how exactly one can explain a sunset given the absence of a divine force. Now, you can certainly posit that God is the creator of all things and so all things came from him including the sun and light refraction and anthrax and kittens and famine and all that jazz.
But you don’t get to deny that THIS IS HOW A SUNSET WORKS, and of the necessary elements of this equation (Sun + Atmosphere + Angle = Sunset), God is not one of them. That’s because everything else is an observable phenomenon, and God is not. You can explain a sunset without God. You can go ahead and believe that God’s part of it all. That’s cool. Lots of people believe stuff like that, and I encourage you to delve into the ways that people make science and their faith jive. But if you are offended by being shown the basic scientific principals behind a sunset, you must be offended by damn near everything. And that seems exhausting.
People getting butthurt over science, fucking love it.
"Stop teaching science, it offends me"
I don’t think wrestlers understand how much impact they have on people’s lives.
Like my day is already 10000000x better when they’re on my TV.
I just wish I could have a heart to heart with all of my favorite wrestlers and tell them how important they’re in my life.
im not even an artist and these prices are hurting my feelings
This is what I have to dig through every time I look for new jobs to apply for.
For non-artists, let’s give you a little perspective.
For me, an illustration takes a bare minimum of 6 hours. Mind you, that’s JUST the drawing part. Not the research, or the communications, or gathering information. Just drawing.
That’s if it’s a simple illustration.
My art deco or more detailed stuff can take 20+ hours each.
Even simple, cartoony things still take at least 3 hours.
Let’s go with the second one. 2 illustrations for $25. Figuring 6 hours each. 12 hours total, for JUST the drawings. That’s approximately $2.08/hour.
Asking these prices is an insult. But what’s even more hurtful is there are people out there that will take these jobs. Which only encourages rates like this to be acceptable. And there are people who will try to say these are just what you have to do to get started.
I believed that. So my first coloring gigs were just $10/page. The day someone offered me $25/page for just flatting work, I realized just how wrong I’d been. I’m still not making the rates I’d like, but now I refuse anything below $25/page. Because there is value in my time.
In any standardized industry, even ones that pay piece rate over hourly, these numbers are criminal.
Do your fellow artists a favor. Never accept jobs like these. There are others that pay legitimate rates. Or at least closer to legitimate.
“You fight like a girl.”
Reblogging because I’m sure the comic readers out there could add some more.
i can’t hear you

of me crushing my enemies

I haven’t hurt my hand drawing something as of late.
It’s actually a pretty good feeling :’B
Egglocke protagonist Rhames and JARVIS the Metagross in suit mode.
Which is pretty hard to achieve unless you have a strong sync with a Metagross/Metang, but nullified in this case since he’s raised JARVIS (He started out with Tony initially) from an egg.
Jarvis is comprised of four individual Beldum inhabiting the same shell, like a four-man Jaeger pod. Each Beldum controls one leg and every now and then they change positions.
You’ll know which two Beldum are in lead in JARVIS just by checking out the eye colors. (Tony hates backseat duty though)
Tony found Bruce to evolve into a Metang, and then they found another Metang comprised of Thor and Steve to finally form the JARVIS cohesive Metagross unit.
Their Pokeball still identifies them as ‘one’ Pokemon as their brainwaves are one and the same.
However in this mode, it can identify as well that Rhames’ mental signature is unlike the Beldums, and it’s impossible to recall them until they reconfigure themselves back to their original form.
Rhames usually uses this mode (Much later on in the game) to travel over rough terrain, tearing down walls and for self defense though he’s not above bashing Plasma heads into pulp if they so much as lay a finger on his daughter.
