I have several done years of RPing, and this has taken me to countless different forums and, if you are at all familiar with RP forums, let me tell you, they were the lowest of the low some six or seven years ago.

In one of these forums, a legendary tale happened, a tale that, if…

Some harsh but very very true words

Some people took offense with this on Twitter. But as a writer struggling with anxiety, I’d say: if you’re not ready to submit without apologizing for your work, you are not ready to submit. 
Never apologize for your work. 

I think he comes off a little harsh here but I also think it’s genuinely good advice. I’m no stranger to the “everything I make is terrible” brain weasels, but seriously, don’t say that to someone you’re submitting your work to professionally. I mean, would you roll up to a job interview and say “hey, I’m probably not very qualified for this job, but consider hiring me anyway”? I’m gonna go ahead and say you would probably not.
Fake it til you make it if you have to. Tell the voice in your head that tells you that thing you made is terrible that YOU may have no choice but to listen to its bullshit, but you’re not going to make anyone else listen to its bullshit. I know it’s not easy, but work at it anyway.

I don’t think it comes off as harsh at all—I work in publishing and this is pretty standard wisdom. You wouldn’t do this applying for a job in any other field, regardless of how you actually felt about your abilities; it’s not different just because you’re an artist.

100% agreeing with this. It’s not harsh. It’s Reality. Also keeping in mind that someone I follow is a publicist. That’s helpful.

This isn't a grammar question or anything, but could you do a master post on Spanish Internet slang? I feel like I'm trying to decipher Chinese when I read through some of my friends' spanish fb statuses haha it would be cool to have some sort of key to figure out all the random letters (like ñ?? Wtf does that stand for?)

Here are some Spanish text slang that might make it bit easier for you to understand your friends’ slang on Facebook, texting, or wherever it may be. I’m sure there might be some differences in some places for the slang. Hope this list helps

  • x - por
  • k - qué/que
  • q - qué/que
  • xq - por qué/porque
  • xk - por qué/porque
  • xfa- por favor
  • pf - por favor
  • bn/b - bien
  • 100pre- siempre
  • xo - pero
  • cdo - cuando
  • bb - bebé
  • pa - para
  • pa’l… - para el…
  • d - de
  • l - el
  • tk - te quiero
  • tkm - te quiero mucho
  • t - te
  • c -  sé/se
  • toy/stoy - estoy
  • tá/stá - está
  • tás/stás - estás
  • tb - tambien
  • dps - después
  • ktl/qtl - qué tal
  • cm -como
  • km - como
  • msj - mensaje
  • ad+ - además
  • asias - gracias
  • n - en
  • mña - mañana
  • a2 - adiós

Verbs/words that start with “h”, can drop the “h” for quicker writing like “hacer” and “haber”. Verbs with “e” can drop the “e” for quicker writing like in “estar” and “esperar”. Whenever a word contains a “qu”, it can be changed to a “k” like “te kiero” (Te quiero).

Hope this has helped a bit. Anyone else have anything they could contribute?

no but my favorite one here is 100pre— it’s not really saving letters, it’s just an excuse for a freaking pun~ XD

Yessss. I enjoyed GotG, but I definitely tensed up/rolled my eyes at many a “joke”.

This is a perfect article about the misogyny in GotG! Absolutely perfect! I will repeat that I absolutely love GotG, and it is my second favourite MCU film, but the ‘casual’ sexism was really frustrating and would jar me.

my year 8 students had to do a budgeting activity pretending they were living out of home on $2000 a month and I find this written on there help I can’t fucking breathe

We had to do this and I was partnered with a boy whose parents are a scientist and a doctor. My family spawned the book: Top Drawer Villain - autobiography of a London criminal.
First of all, we had to choose where we would shop. He wanted to buy from Booths. “We are not buying from Booths," I snapped. "Get on Asda’s website right now." His face froze.
“A-Asda?" he whispered. "But that’s where… The Lower Classes shop.”
This was a good start.
We then had to decide on a menu. We started on breakfast. “Toast," he said.
“Toast," I said. "Great. Look, Asda has its own wholemeal—”
“Warburton’s thick-slice white bread. Nothing else. With olive oil.”
“You WHAT?" I choked. "You have olive oil, on your toast, in the morning?”
He frowned. “Who doesn’t?”
“Okay," I said, "but what will the children eat?”
He gaped at me. “The children? We have children?”
We continued. All was well until it came to what we would have on our sandwiches. We even sorted out the children’s lunch - they, of course, would get free school meals. “Yes," he agreed; "if we can’t even afford Bertolli then they can get school meals on the government.”
He asked what dressing we should have on our ham. “Nuh-uh," I said. "Can’t have ham. I’m vegetarian.”
“But I’m not.”
“Yes, but we’re married and we can only afford one sandwich filler so it has to be vege—”
“We’re married!?”
“Of course we’re married! You’re devout Christian - how do you think I convinced you to have children?”
He shook his head, frowning. “Well I want ham. You’ll have to put back the washing powder - I need ham on my sandwiches.”
We continued. Finally, it was dinner. “Okay," he said, clearly thinking hard; "for dinner, we can have… Chicken nuggets and… Beans?”
“Vegetarian.”
“Vegetarian nuggets then. And beans.”
“We need vegetables. The children have to have a balanced diet.”
“You and your children!" he yelled, and the whole class looked around.
“They’re your children too!" I screamed back.
He leapt to his feet, shaking his head and looking distraught. “I don’t believe it - I don’t believe you! I wouldn’t have your children!”
“Please," I cried, standing up also. "Don’t—”
“I want a divorce!”
And he walked out of the classroom.
The teacher stood up and stared between me and the door through which he had vanished. “I’m sorry," I whispered, "but we couldn’t do it any more. There were just too many differences - I can’t live with someone who thinks champagne is a budget.”
I can’t wait to see this guy when he gets to university.

17 years of One Piece: Art + Tears

If I had to choose one (among many) of the things that, to me, set Oda’s art apart from other shonen artists, it would probably be the way he draws his characters crying. I always loved that with him there was never any sugar-coating when the characters need to express their emotions. No sparkly tears, no beautiful, cute, crying faces. You get the ugly sobbing, the runny nose, the tears blocking the vision. Basically, you get the raw emotion and pain that the characters feel, which has a huge impact in more emotional scenes. And that’s, in my opinion, one of the things about Oda’s art that really deserves praise.

This is a quick overview of what happened to Tulsa, OK’s “Black Wall Street” in 1921.

The black population grew to prominent, too successful, so they were literally massacred. They were bombed by the US government. The United States of America…
