"I used the Alchemy/Enchanting loop to give myself +500 unarmed damage and then punched a Legendary dragon to death. Afterwards, a guard asked me if someone stole my sweetroll, so I hit him. It was worth the jail time."
100% in agreement, for the people that really need help they can take pride in earning, and no more free ride for people like this.
Let me break this down for you: Most of those who are on or pursuing welfare (i.e. food stamps, housing assistance, etc) already have jobs. Most work full time, and those who don’t are in pursuance of full time jobs. There is this myth that welfare is something that never runs out, when the reality is even benefits like food stamps are only good for a few months at most before you have to re-apply - something that can take weeks to even hear back from.
For the small fraction who are unemployed, able bodied, and have the mental health to pursue full time jobs, this doesn’t even make sense in terms of wage/labor. Welfare benefits are often miniscule amounts that barely help you squeak by. You see, they were never created with the idea of sustaining individuals and families who don’t have a secondary source of income and over time most states haven’t adjusted their percentages to reflect change in things like inflation.
Not to mention that this mindset excludes those who suffer from crippling mental health issues that get in their way of holding a steady job.
Basically, anyone who agrees with this shit needs to stfu and pull their head out of their own republican fed-ass. You wanna get mad about something? Get mad at how big banks screwed people over and foreclosed on homes that families had for years. Get mad about the fact that there is not one single state where a person can work a full 40 hours a week at that state’s minimum wage rate and afford a 1 bedroom apartment (you need to make 3-4x the amount of rent in order to sign most leases).
And then when these problems are solved then maybe, JUST MAYBE, come back to me with these same damn complaints of omgz social welfare recipients are leeches.
You literally ARE REQUIRED to be working at least 35 hours a week before you even qualify for welfare!
does ANYONE know where i can watch this is the end?!?
At the video store, its pretty recent. Please support your local movie rental services, or Netflix.
I’m sorry I called you ‘dude’ I didn’t know you were a pansexual gender fluid non-binary moca frappuccino with dual acting hydraulic cylinder and leather grip swiss army knife

IT MEANS I’M TAKING HOLIDAY REQUESTS
- you gotta be following me
- it’s first come, first served, I am not an all-powerful goddess, only a semi-powerful goddess. I cannot do like 300+ requests in fifteen days I just can’t. I’m limiting it to 20, but we’ll play it by ear.
- I ain’t…
this list will be updated with request takers as spots are filled
hiding under a readmore because you guys don’t need this clogging your dash
What kind of requests?
Telling your son not to “be such a girl” lets his sister who overhears the conversation know that being a girl is not a good thing and she should be sorry and ashamed of herself.
It also reminds your son that being a boy is better than being a girl and therefore he is better than any girl he will ever meet.

|Actually yaoi hands happen because people ARE trying to draw anatomy from life and they just don't have the skill to do it right. Those are artists who ought to just try something that isn't realistic manga style, if they really can't get an eye for proportions that make any sense :)|
Oh. I know what it is; its just hilarious that people use “Yaoi Hands” as a term. Its fucking hilarious as all hell.
pants aren’t an issue when you’re QUANTUM SHITTING THROUGH THE nTH DIMENSION
Don’t you love that pompous mantra that you’re obligated to learn realistic human anatomy and proportion before you dare develop a more stylized look? That to be a “good” artist you need an eye for reality before you can have the audacity to pull off unreality?
Guess how many of the successful, popular artists represented here have ever once gotten the hang of a correct human hand or could tell you how far an elbow should be from a waist? It’s not exactly none of them, but it’s really close to none of them.
There is no such “rule.” Art teachers pulled this idea out of their asses to give their students more homework. Draw what you fucking want, the way you’re fucking comfortable. While you pull your hair out fretting over how to get t-shirt wrinkles and hairlines correct you could be ROCKING wobbly blob-people and finding an audience that worships you for it.
I have waited so long for someone to make this post. ^w^
NO STOP RIGHT HERE.
It IS ENTIRELY necessary to learn rules before breaking them. It’s what makes a style work, or not. It’s what makes something look good or awkward. Telling people that “there is no such rule” is the worst thing you can to do an artist. You think the people in that post don’t know about realistic anatomy, I’m ready to bet a LOT that they do! And it’s really offensive to suggest that they don’t. NO MATTER HOW STYLIZED SOMETHING IS, there is still structure. There is still a lot of thoughts given in what will look harmonious, even with unrealistic proportions. It’s not a “pompous mantra”, it’s a reality.
If you look at these images for more than half a second, you’ll notice that the artists DO have anatomical knowledge. The limbs follow the correct directions and bend in the correct places. The artists know which features to remove/simplify/exaggerate to create an appealing or interesting image.
If you have stylization without the knowledge to back it up then you end up with that stuff like yaoi hands.
So sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up.
Buncha ignorant twats
I remember when I used to think the exact same thing. There were tons of kids drawing trees and faces and I couldn’t stand that shit. It took me so fucking long to realize that I was doing the worst thing possible. I’ve only been studying for a year so far because I thought it was that simple.
I’ve been waiting for this post all my life
the disclaimer though
reblogging again because I actually read the disclaimer this time…
During the Bubonic Plague, doctors wore these bird-like masks to avoid becoming sick. They would fill the beaks with spices and rose petals, so they wouldn’t have to smell the rotting bodies.
A theory during the Bubonic Plague was that the plague was caused by evil spirits. To scare the spirits away, the masks were intentionally designed to be creepy.
Mission fucking accomplished
Okay so I love this but it doesn’t cover the half of why the design is awesome and actually borders on making sense.
It wasn’t just that they didn’t want to smell the infected and dead, they thought it was crucial to protecting themselves. They had no way of knowing about what actually caused the plague, and so one of the other theories was that the smell of the infected all by itself was evil and could transmit the plague. So not only would they fill their masks with aromatic herbs and flowers, they would also burn fires in public areas, so that the smell of the smoke would “clear the air”. This all related to the miasma theory of contagion, which was one of the major theories out there until the 19th century. And it makes sense, in a way. Plague victims smelled awful, and there’s a general correlation between horrible septic smells and getting horribly sick if you’re around what causes them for too long.
You can see now that we’ve got two different theories as to what caused the plague that were worked into the design. That’s because the whole thing was an attempt by the doctors to cover as many bases as they could think of, and we’re still not done.
The glass eyepieces. They were either darkened or red, not something you generally want to have to contend with when examining patients. But the plague might be spread by eye contact via the evil eye, so best to ward that off too.
The illustration shows a doctor holding a stick. This was an examination tool, that helped the doctors keep some distance between themselves and the infected. They already had gloves on, but the extra level of separation was apparently deemed necessary. You could even take a pulse with it. Or keep people the fuck away from you, which was apparently a documented use.
Finally, the robe. It’s not just to look fancy, the cloth was waxed, as were all of the rest of their clothes. What’s one of the properties of wax? Water-based fluids aren’t absorbed by it. This was the closest you could get to a sterile, fully protecting garment back then. Because at least one person along the line was smart enough to think “Gee, I’d really rather not have the stuff coming out of those weeping sores anywhere on my person”.
So between all of these there’s a real sense that a lot of real thought was put into making sure the doctors were protected, even if they couldn’t exactly be sure from what. They worked with what information they had. And frankly, it’s a great design given what was available! You limit exposure to aspirated liquids, limit exposure to contaminated liquids already present, you limit contact with the infected. You also don’t give fleas any really good place to hop onto. That’s actually useful.
Beyond that, there were contracts the doctors would sign before they even got near a patient. They were to be under quarantine themselves, they wouldn’t treat patients without a custodian monitoring them and helping when something had to be physically contacted, and they would not treat non-plague patients for the duration. There was an actual system in place by the time the plague doctors really became a thing to make sure they didn’t infect anyone either.
These guys were the product of the scientific process at work, and the scientific process made a bitchin’ proto-hazmat suit. And containment protocols!
