So if I have a Dictate of the Twin Gods on the field and my opponent uses, say, Lightning Strike on me: if I use Deflection Palm, do I do 12 damage?
Yep! Lightning strike deals double of three to you (so six), then Deflecting Palm sees the six that would be hitting you, prevents it, sends it back, and it’s doubled again (twelve), as a new source is dealing the damage.
I was recently diagnosed with symptoms last week on Wednesday. I’ve been depressed almost everyday for the last five years. In those years I’ve been through alcohol and various substance abuse. Although I have been sober for the past 2 years and haven’t touched any drugs in the…
I couldn't find your definition of a game (I think you've mentioned it before). Is this a game or not? There are 9 dice, each with different pictures on each side. All are rolled and you make up a story involving all the pictures on the dice that came up, picking whichever one you like to start with. (Minimal) rules, a goal, an end point and I'd guess you get better over time. Not really any catch up feature though
So MaRo, where do you put the chances of an Egyptian-themed block these days? This question's been asked countless times, I know. But riddle me this: would you say it's more likely than a trip to Muraganda?
All right, Question Marks, if you only got one, which would you prefer:
“At the core of the Sun, nuclear fusion power produced is estimated at about 276.5 watts/m^3. Interestingly this power production is more equivalent to a reptile’s metabolic energy production than what we would think like a nuclear bomb.”—The Sun is white, not yellow
How to permanently exist beyond duplexity, antithesis, or trouble. This is not an easy concept, I know. Imagine being able to feel with all of your senses the relentless alien terror that is God and your place in it, which is everywhere and therefore nowhere, and realizing that it means the total dissolution of your individuality into boundless being. Imagine that and then still being able to say “I”. The “I” is the Tower.
““Well, —— me”, he said. “A ——ing wizard. I hate ——ing wizards!”
“You shouldn’t —— them, then”, muttered one of his henchmen, effortlessly pronouncing a row of dashes.”—Terry Pratchett, “Mort” (via steviecass)
Abercrombie and Fitch has decided that anyone over a size 10 jean isn’t sexy enough for their clothing line, and doesn’t want them shopping in their stores and sullying their clothes. They decided to only hire good looking people so that only good looking people will come into their store.
“It’s almost everything. That’s why we hire good-looking people in our stores. Because good-looking people attract other good-looking people, and we want to market to cool, good-looking people. We don’t market to anyone other than that,”
That is an actual quote from their CEO Mike Jeffries.
I know I don’t have a lot of followers but this is something that isn’t right. They’re excluding people from being able to buy their clothes and they make it seem like it isn’t okay for people to be slightly chubbier or bigger than the average “cool kid” to own their clothes. This is something that shouldn’t be allowed to happen.
I’ve seen tumblr do some amazing things, and this place would be even more amazing to me if we were somehow able to show the douchebag who runs this company that his elitist, skinny-people only attitude ISN’T okay, and that we won’t stand for it.
Another quote from the article by Jeffries:
“In every school there are the cool and popular kids, and then there are the not-so-cool kids. Candidly, we go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don’t belong [in our clothes], and they can’t belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely.”
And according to the source, Abercrombie & Fitch has no problem selling XL and XXL clothing to MEN. So this isn’t just body-shaming and dismissal of overweight people in general, but OVERWEIGHT WOMEN SPECIFICALLY, who are by Jeffries’ SUPREME judgment objectively incapable of being cool or attractive.
And the only way to be cool or attractive is to be included in some clothes line?
