muscly dudes are not my regularly scheduled jam but there is something about momoa’s smirk that really works for me
Holy cow that eyebrow scar ISN’T makeup?!
Okay, you know what I want? Kevin and Cecil both announcing the same baseball game.
"Oh, that was a NICE effort, he really hustled to 2nd there but was just a BIT too slow! What a great try!"
"AND HE IS OUT! HA! That’s what you get for trying to steal in OUR town without a license! Will these Desert Bluff hooligans stop at NOTHING?!"
Travel: Walking on Ice
Avoid slipping by walking like a penguin.
Fact: About 60 people die each year in the US as a result of slipping on ice. This is about as many that will die from a tornado.
Reblogging for people who are having cold weather they’re not used to! Please stay safe <3
THIS DOES WORK.
Trust the Canadian who walks like this from December to March. It may look mildly goofy, but in winter everybody already does (bobble hats with hockey team logos on!), and it’s really nice to not have to worry so much about falling on your arse.
Plus penguins are great, who DOESN’T want to be one?!
So the Night Vale posters are SUPER FUN and I am definitely going to keep playing around with them until I get bored.
I’ve got about… six finished total, with ideas for a couple more. (Can’t promise to get them ALL done - life, work, yadda yadda!)
Which one do you guys want to see next?
Isn’t it nice how people twist their religious scripture to suit their weds but when it’s used against them it’s suddenly not okay
I talked to a monk about this quote once (we have mutual friends, and he came to a New Year’s Eve party at my shared art studio). He said this isn’t even talking about homosexuality. That the bible never actually says homosexuality is wrong. What that passage means is this:
Women were treated as subservient and it that you shouldn’t treat other men as subservient, like they are beneath you. It is not talking about homosexuality. If it was, it would say it outright since the bible lists other things outright.
I take the word of a monk who have studied the bible extensively more than a self proclaimed Christian.
The above text, I would like to point out is from the point of view of this translation of the original Hebrew. I spoke with my cousin’s rabbi on the matter and his response was different, saying that it was a mistranslation. See, the true translation says that a man shall not lie with another in the bed of a woman, which is to say, the Hebrews had a shit ton of rules about when a man was or was not allowed in a woman’s bed and private quarters (including, if she didn’t want you there, you weren’t allowed there. Hebrew women were also allowed to divorce their husbands and the image of the ‘oppressive Hebrew people’ is an image that was propogated by Christianity which, historically speaking, doesn’t treat the Jewish people too well and liked to paint them as being rather barbaric and backwards and cultish with their traditions, which, another piece of fun info, their traditions were one of the main reasons why the Jewish people were less likely, in medieval times, to die of the plague. Because washing your hands and avoiding the dead and vermin and the like was a lot of help. Of course the Christians persecuted them for not dying but that’s another matter. I’m sidetracked). So the verse is literally saying ‘Don’t fuck in some lady’s bed because that’s just goddamn rude’
Also, whenever a Christian brings the book of Leviticus up, you should feel free to point out that these are rules that were given to make the Hebrew people prepared for when the son of God came to earth. In Christianity, it’s believed the son of God was Jesus. So by following the rules set in Leviticus or pushing them as things we should follow, they’re saying that Jesus was not the son of God, and that Jesus did not, in fact, die for our sins. Jewish people believe, in their faith, that the son of God hasn’t yet been born, so many choose to follow these rules.
Most people of course roll their eyes when I explain the translation of the verse (full breakdown found here) but it’s always fun to point out the nature of the rules in Leviticus and the implications of following them.
I’m a theology student and I am on the verge of crying because of how accurate this commentary is. Historical context is simultaneously the most interesting and most important part of interpreting any texts.
Most religious people seem to base their beliefs on things that are severely mistranslated. I wish they would do their research before using the bible for hate.
I studied theology extensively and was going to become a theologist until I switched majors. The above commentary is 100% accurate and what I try to stress in a lot if conversations with Bible Thumpers.
Jesus also affirms the homosexual relationship between the Roman Centurion and his “slave”. The particular Greek word used to refer to this special slave was “pais”. Greek language studies and contexts show that a “pais” was a male love slave. Regular slaves were called “dolos”. The Centurion makes this distinction clearly when he asks Jesus to heal his slave (pais), and then to prove his status he tells Jesus that his slaves (dolos) go when he tells them to. But this slave (pais) was special. He was the Centurion’s lover.
Hearing this, Jesus was so amazed he says he had not found ANYONE ELSE who had such great faith. He then blesses the Centurion and heals his male lover.
THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE REALLY TEACHES ABOUT SAME SEX COUPLES.
In short, the English adaptation is a mistranslated farce.
reblogging for the comments ^^^^^^
EXCUSE ME WHILE I REBLOG THIS FIFTY MILLION TIMES
I did not know that about the Centurion!
Think about heroes, and whether we should even need them.

Been trying to get the group down for the last couple of days. HOW DO YOU LIKE THOSE HEIGHT DIFFERENCES LOL. Ah and I changed styles halfway through because man I am a natural sketcher, clean lineart is weird and painful for me.
I think I like my Cassie now. She gets to be all scratched up because guys, just working at a petstore I get scratched up pretty much everyday? She works with wildlife and constant medication, she’s gotta have some hardcore arms there. Jake is the hardest to get down for me, I’m still not sure of him. He gets a black version ‘cause I was reading over patrickandmarcus' animorphs stuff and I like the ideas there.
Drawing them is so hard for me though jfc how do you draw teens I mean there are no teens on tv really only 20-something’s pretending to be highschoolers.
I enjoy how Marco is annoying someone in EVERY PANEL!
The official video for Vienna Teng’s song “Level Up” is out today, and there is so much that is utterly right about this video it is hard to know where to start.
I loved the song from the first time I heard it, but the video does it justice and then some. Interracial couples (two of them!), a disabled POC, and a woman who is noticeably curvier than the others in the video but who is not only dancing beautifully but does many lifts and dips while dancing. Overall, you’ve got an excellently high bar set here for inclusiveness, which is something at which Teng excels.
I’m very impressed, and if you feel the same, consider picking up the album this is from - Aims, available for free streaming on Bandcamp.
Call it your 2.0, your rebirth, whatever
I’m just going to blast this all day. Good plan? Good plan.
Okay, (a) this is a thoroughly excellent song, and (b) this video is actually kind of a mindbend when one has already seen this Pacific Rim fanvid. or, you know, when one has been watching that fanvid on average of once a day for several weeks now. shut up.
OH MY GOSH I had not seen that video yet!
I… um… I might actually have tears in my eyes. *watches three more times*
Thank you so much everyone for all the love and support. I really had no idea my cosplay would receive so much positive feedback ;__;
Here are some more Serenity pics with more to come. You can check them out here too:
Holy wow cutie!
