SLPT: Confuse those wine snobs by *hearing* the wine
so i told my mom about this post before she and my dad went on a trip to napa, and she was delighted to try this out
and apparently, when she straight-faced, lifted her glass of chardonnay to her ear and swirled it, she baffled the other winery-goers so much that they all instinctively did exactly the same thing. that sort of crowd-think, that you aren’t quite sure what’s right but you’ll be damned if you’re mistaken for the plebian that you are
but watching that was enough for my mom to lose her composure, laugh so hard she cried, and spill the entire glass all over herself, in the process getting kicked out of the winery
so long story short do this at your own risk
In which Thor is oblivious to all the awkward in the room… [x]
broke: thor doesn’t notice the awkward
woke: thor is so strong and cheerful that he believes he can just steamroller over all the awkward and make it go away
bespoke: thor is perfectly aware of the awkward and very much enjoying it
You can’t convince me that Thor isn’t perfectly aware of the awkward
Thor milking this moment for all the Awkward he can get out of it because he’s that extra is a Good Take
People constantly think that Thor is kinda clueless, but he always knows what he’s doing
anyone who thinks Thor isn’t fully aware of exactly what he’s doing is someone who’s never been an elder sibling out to absolutely mortify a younger sibling and knowing exactly how to go about doing it to best and greatest effect
man, teenaged girls aren’t allowed to have a genuine interest in anything without being ridiculed for it. if a girl likes ugg boots and starbucks she’s stupid and stereotypical, but if she likes combat boots and obscure coffee houses she’s a hipster wannabe and is trying too hard. if a girl listens to boy bands and other popular artists she’s a dumb follower, if she reads comics or plays video games she’s a poser/fake geek girl, if she likes sex she’s a slut but if she doesn’t like sex she’s a prude, if she wears makeup she’s fake but if she doesn’t wear makeup she’s a slob, if she has low self-esteem she needs to learn to love herself but if she has high self-esteem she’s overconfident and vain, if she’s interested in politics she’s a crazy social justice warrior but if she prefers to stay out of social matters she’s a dumb airhead. girls are literally mocked for every single thing they like or do, no matter what those things are, and i’m really really sick of it.
SOMEONE SAID IT
That’s how afraid people are of us.
yknow how you want to like female characters and not immediately hate them but at the same time they’re often written by those men that have a limited understanding of women as people and it’s really hard to like a character that is less meant to be a person and more of a wanking hand puppet intended for the male gaze
the flip side is when we’re supposed to dislike a female character but she’s obviously a straw-woman the writer’s using to work out some unresolved issues he has with an ex or his mom or an unrequited crush so you actually kind of like her out of spite (especially when the narrative insists she’s terrible but the real person she’s based on was wholly reasonable and the writer can’t conceal that)
Bonus points when the dude we’re supposed to think she’s such a harpy for being hostile toward is just an endless parade of predatory red flags, but the narrative never acknowledges it due to the writer’s evident honest belief that that’s just how you interact with women.
So many female characters went through my head I got dizzy.
when you find an academic source that’s perfect for your paper but it’s behind a pay wall
Deciding to cite it anyway base on the abstract, knowing your professor probably won’t go through and look up every source in works cited
if you guys want to read academic papers but they’re behind a paywall, get the chrome extension Unpaywall. when you visit a site that requires you pay for their journal to view the article, the extension will look for other open access sites that will show you the article for free, and it’s all completely legal. all that money goes to the publisher, the writer of the paper gets none of it. https://unpaywall.org
If you can find out an author’s name, contact them. They may be willing to email it to you.For free.

Thanos is a weak ass bitch of a villain because ever since killmonger I need all my villains to pull up with some style, looks, a certain je ne sais quoi. Killmonger stole a thousand year old artifact and wore it as armor and wore solid gold fangs. What did Thanos wear? The same body armor for hundreds of years and a dumb glove that wasn’t even designer
People are all like “he’s an alien” like so was Hela and she pulled up with some iconic goth looks, Chanel horned helmet, a beautiful smokey eye, nails that could cut diamonds, Thanos has no excuse fashion is universal
“Perfectly balanced, as all things should be” oh I’m sorry Thanos I couldn’t hear you over your brown pants from fucking K-Mart
The thing that gets me about the whole James Charles thing is that increasingly it’s coming off more like “straight rights!” Rather than about someone exhibiting extremely predatory behavior. Even when Tati was going over what happened at her birthday dinner and how James was talking in a very sexual manner she says “I told him the waiter was straight” AS IF the waiters sexuality had anything to do with not wanting to be verbally sexually harassed! By anyone! Ever! I don’t understand why everyone is like STRAIGHT BOYS STRAIGHT BOYS when it should just be about James Charles making unwanted sexual advances and preying on people using money and power.
I still say the most unrealistic part of Harry Potter was that there wasn’t a scene where Hermione found 16 year old Harry in a shopping cart on top of the Astronomy Tower while 16 year old Ron stood by with Colin’s camera because if the prophecy says that he has to die via Voldemort then that means nothing else can kill him ergo there’s no way this could possibly go wrong…
1. Hermione does not need the extra stress, she’s already a frazzled mess from her academics, poor kid.
2. Suddenly I realize how very much JKR (and, admittedly, a lot of the rest of us) have forgotten about being teenagers.
But, we all know Slytherins get involved too. Mainly because Draco has the mindset of “anything potter can do, I can do better!” (he can’t)
But, I’ll it would take is for Harry to say is “scared Malfoy?”
and there Draco is in a shopping cart next to Potter ready to race down the astronomy tower
“DRACO EVEN IF HARRY IS RIGHT IN HIS ABSOLUTELY DAFT INTERPRETATION OF PROPHECY, THE PROPHECY DOESN’T COVER YOU”
“LEAVE IT, Granger, I’m DOING this”
“HE’S DOING THIS HERMIONE”
Y E S
THESE ARE THE QUALITY ADDITIONS I WANT ON MY POSTS!
Draco and Harry, already halfway down the tower with no chance of stopping or slowing down: He said WHA
These are hilarious! NGL major preference for adults here. Other adult bonuses:
- Don’t need naps
- Can go on hikes for longer
- Can be left alone for longer
- Less fragile
- Teeth don’t randomly fall out
- Majority of teenage hormonal bullshit is over
- Surprise fear periods done with
- No more growing in size or coat
“young adult dystopian novels are so unrealistic lmao like they always have some random teenage girl rising up to inspire the world to make change.”
a hero emerges
And just like in the novels, grown men and women are going out of their way to destroy her. Support our hero.
And it’s not even like it doesn’t happen regularly.
Teenage girls are amazing.
Sometimes they’re not even teenagers

Lmaooo, yeees, they are. I can see them getting all offended when Matteo talks about it too. Especially Abdi.
“So yeah, it’s great! Me & David were messaging about it the other day and-”
“I didn’t see the messages…?”
“I didn’t see them in the gc.”
“Uhh, yeah Abdi, that’s because it wasn’t in the gc? We messaged each other.”
“…..Oh. I see.”
“Abdi…are-are you upset that me & David privately message each other?? He’s my boyfriend! We can’t just, message though the gc all the time! Besides, what if we want to send dirty messages??”
“I’d give you guys your privacy….I wouldn’t read them.”
“Oh, my god.” Face palm ensues.
