#he’s just mad because of the gay panic he went through

 

I WILL GO ON A RAMPAGE DON’T YOU DARE DIMINISH HIS CHARACTER ONE MORE TIME

LOOK AT WHAT HE JUST WENT THROUGH

HE ALMOST LOST HIS DEAR FRIEND 

HIS FRIEND WHO JUST SAVED HIS LIFE

AND RISKED EVERYTHING AND PRACTICALLY SINGLE HANDEDLY DEFEATED THE HUNS

AND NOW THE LAW SAYS HE HAS TO KILL THIS AMAZING PERSON

THE LAW HE WAS RAISED BY A MILITARY FAMILY AND SOCIETY TO HONOR AND RESPECT

THE LAW HE, AS A CAPTAIN OF THE ARMY, HAS PROMISED TO LIVE BY

AND IT IS SO INGRAINED IN HIM TO FOLLOW THAT LAW AND THE PUNISHMENT THAT COULD FOLLOW HIM REFUSING TO OBEY COULD BE SERIOUS

HE KNOWS WHAT HE HAS TO DO BUT THIS ISN’T JUST ANY SOLDIER, IT’S HIS FRIEND, HIS HERO

HIS FRIEND, WHOM HE THOUGHT HE KNEW, WHOM HE TRUSTED WITH HIS LIFE, HE JUST FOUND OUT HAS BEEN LYING TO HIM THE ENTIRE TIME

HE’S NOT WHO HE SAID HE WAS, HE’S NOT EVEN A HE, AND HE DOESN’T KNOW HOW TO TRUST THIS PERSON ANYMORE

IT’S STUPID, BUT HE’S CONFLICTED, AND IT HURTS

AND YOU KNOW WHAT

YOU KNOW WHAT

DO YOU EVEN SEE THE LOOK ON HIS FACE IN THE SECOND GIF

HIS DAD JUST DIED

HIS FATHER DIED YESTERDAY

IN A BATTLE HE COULDN’T EVEN GET TO SOON ENOUGH TO HELP

THEN MULAN TELLS HIM JUST WHY SHE ENTERED THE WAR

TO SAVE HER DAD FROM DYING THE SAME WAY HIS DID

AND YOU CAN SEE THAT IN HIS FACE, HOW MUCH THAT GETS TO HIM

HE IS SO CONFLICTED OVER A MILLION THINGS HERE

DO YOU HONESTLY THINK A GAY SCARE WAS THE ONLY THING GOING THROUGH HIS MIND RIGHT NOW

DO YOU!?

AMEN

"
  1. Internships are the building blocks of your résumé. Apply to them. Meet people.
  2. Choose a degree that is relevant to the real world. Minor in History if you love it so much.
  3. Everyone knows how to use Microsoft Office. Putting it under the “Skills” section of your résumé is not impressive.
  4. See the world. This is the only time you have in your life to spend months in a foreign country. Take advantage of your lack of responsibility to travel.
  5. 99.9% of employers will never look at your transcript. A 4.0 GPA will not land you a job. Good interpersonal skills might.
  6. No employer cares whether you were on the executive board of your fraternity or sorority or other campus organization. Serve the organization because you love it, not simply to use it as space-filler on your résumé.
  7. Proofread everything. Twice. Or else no one will believe that you’re “detial-oriented.”
  8. You have four (or five) years to make something of yourself. Use that time wisely.
  9. Go out with your friends on a Tuesday night despite having a test on Wednesday. The test won’t matter in ten years, but your friendships will.
  10. Do not expect the college senior to fall in love with you after you sleep together. Actually, just don’t sleep together. This will not end well.
  11. Really get to know your professors. Use office hours to your advantage. You never know what doors they can open for you.
  12. Graduate school is rarely a good idea, especially if you’re only using it to delay the real world for a few years. The more money you make now, the less debt you’ll have later.
  13. Realize that you will be in debt until you’re forty. Make peace with this early.
  14. One bad grade won’t ruin your life. Get over yourself.
  15. Beware of credit cards. No matter what they say, money isn’t free.
  16. Don’t burn bridges. You never know when you might need help from someone.
  17. Eat good food. Nothing will make you feel worse than six straight nights of Ramen.
  18. Buy a plunger before you actually need said plunger. Just trust me on this one.
  19. Press save. It will keep you from having that 4:00am mental breakdown.
  20. All-nighters will not help you learn the material. Budget time throughout the day to study so that you can actually sleep before the final exam.
  21. Use a condom. No one wants that “I’m late” text.
  22. Work during the summers. Employers want someone with real-life experience.
  23. Call your mom once a week. She wants to stay involved in your life, and a twenty-minute phone conversation won’t kill you.
  24. You have four years to learn your alcohol limit. This will save you from puking at the office Christmas party.
  25. The college cafeteria will make you fat. So will alcohol. Be careful about what you’re putting into your body.
  26. Find a few hours each week to work out. Cardio is great stress relief.
  27. So is sex. Booty calls are sometimes necessary. Don’t beat yourself up for it in the morning.
  28. Learn to cook. Eating out is expensive and unhealthy. A few basics can last you a long time.
  29. Take pictures. Not everything has to be posted to Instagram, but you will want to have these memories documented.
  30. Volunteer. Not because you have to, but because you want to. The Humane Society always needs people to play with the animals.
  31. Learn how to budget. Your parents won’t be around to give you money forever.
  32. Buy shower shoes. Use them. Save yourself from foot fungus.
  33. Beer is expensive. Buy vodka.
  34. Interviews are nerve-wracking. Practice with a friend before you go.
  35. Find good references. They can be the difference between being offered your dream job and being turned down.
  36. It’s okay to turn down your first job offer to wait for a better one. Have faith in yourself.
  37. If you’re treated like a slave at your internship, it’s okay to leave. Find a company that sees your worth.
  38. Learn how to code HTML. This is an invaluable skill.
  39. Also learn Photoshop. Every company in the world needs someone who can design a poster.
  40. Take a couple classes just for fun. There’s a difference between smart and educated.
  41. Know your priorities. Stick to them.
  42. Start searching for a job a year before you graduate. It takes time to find something you want.
  43. Apply for jobs you may not be completely qualified for. You may be the only applicant.
  44. Don’t get too discouraged when you fail at something. Lay in bed for two days. Cry. Then get back up and start living again.
  45. Everyone has something to teach you. Listen to them.
  46. Make mistakes, but be sure to learn from them.
  47. Textbooks are expensive and you will never need them again. Rent, don’t buy.
  48. No one will ever care how wasted you were last night. They saw it first hand. Shut up.
  49. No one is responsible for you except you. Think twice before you do something.
  50. Don’t think that these have to be the best four years of your life. Life after graduation is pretty awesome too.

New Ace Attorney 3DS game unveiled ⊟
According to this Famitsu scan posted by @Lite_Agent, this new game takes place during Japan’s Meiji period (1868 - 1912, a.k.a. Rurouni Kenshin times) and naturally features a new star — it looks like that star is an ancestor of Phoenix Wright. He has a sword, too. Cool sword, new guy.
The full title, according to @CourtRecords_, is Dai Gyakuten Saiban - Naruhodou Ryuunosuke no Bouken, or Grand Turnabout Trial - The Adventures of Naruhodou Ryuunosuke. As mentioned previously, Ace Attorney creator Shu Takumi is once again heading the project, after taking a break from the series with Dual Destinies.

I firmly believe that the reason many Slytherins were easily convinced to join Voldemort was because they were treated like shit by the rest of the houses while they were growing up. Imagine spending seven of the most important years of your life being told that you were part of the bad house and therefore bad yourself. Everyone boos your quidditch team. All the houses will hang out with everyone except you. You grow up being hated by your fellow students and many of your teachers.
Now imagine someone comes along and tells you that you’re not worthless and bad. That you’re invited to join a family where you will right the wrongs committed against you. You have the opportunity to be wanted and powerful instead of a hated outcast. Several of your former classmates are telling you how great it is. How you’re welcomed and needed. These are the kids you grew up with. The classmates who went through all the same things you did. Being a Death Eater sounds pretty good now.

I’ve been waiting for a post like this.

THIS.

I was always bothered by the scene at the end of book 7, when the students are asked whether they want to fight the incoming Death Eater army. The Slytherin students are all like, “Uh. No?” And they’re treated like terrorists for it. In the movie, they’re even locked in the school dungeons while everyone cheers.
Did nobody stop to think and realize that if the Sytherin students had stood and fought, they would have been facing their own parents on a battlefield? Even if some of them weren’t really on board with the whole Death Eater thing, expecting them to fight was just cruel. They were children. The oldest of them were seventeen. Babies. And their own professors were asking them to shoot illegal killing spells at Mum and Dad.
Imagine you are a Slytherin and you are staying behind to defend your school and maybe restore some honor to your House. The other students are all giving you mistrustful glares. You know they’re waiting for you to start hitting them in the back with stunning spells. You consider doing it, too, because you’re already starting to regret the choice you made.
Then the battle begins, and you are up against a crowd of strangers who aren’t strangers at all. You recognize voices, muffled behind masks but still piercingly familiar. Your uncle. Your cousin. Your best friend’s big sister.
And then you see a tall man in expensive grey robes. A moment later you notice the small, curvy woman next to him, wand ready. They are guarding each others backs.
You recognize their shoes.

*sobs because yes*

Excubitor is a great new futuristic shoot-em-up/horde mode/tower defence hybrid that sees you in control of a space fighter fighting off wave after wave of enemies, intent on destroying your base.

It’s an interesting mix of genres and works really well.   In the first level your ship can boost around the map, meeting enemies head-on, strafing circles around them and blowing them out the sky, proving the old adage – attack is the best form of defence.  Once you complete the level or die, the resources you collected during the last level can be used to buy upgrades for your ship, the shop is quite bare at the moment, but we’d expect it to fill out as the game development progresses.

Once you progress past the first (rather tricky) level you’ll have the ability to build turrets and activate defences, adding a tower defence mechanic to the game.  This allows Excubitor to support different playstyles, allowing you to either upgrade your ship and take on the enemy head-on, or build more turrets at your base and bunker down.

Still in its early stages of development, Excubitor is already great fun, the ship handles well and it’s a satisfying feeling darting around the map, protecting your base from enemies.  You’ll be able to chart the game’s progress too as each week the devs will be posting a new build with new features and improvements based on your opinions.

This dude has a sick skill!!

_______

This rock balancing is done by Michael Grab. He is an artist and has killer patience. On his site gravityglue.com, Grab explains:

“The most fundamental element of balancing in a physical sense is finding some kind of ‘tripod’ for the rock to stand on. Every rock is covered in a variety of tiny to large indentations that can act as a tripod for the rock to stand upright, or in most orientations you can think of with other rocks. By paying close attention to the feeling of the rocks, you will start to feel even the smallest clicks as the notches of the rocks in contact are moving over one another. Parallel to the physical element of finding tripods, the most fundamental non-physical element is harder to explain through words. In a nutshell, I am referring to meditation, or finding a zero point or silence within yourself. Some balances can apply significant pressure on your mind and your patience. The challenge is overcoming any doubt that may arise.” Pretty sick, amiright?
