Be Like, Children, and Detroit: WIZARU speedoweedo on a list of dumb shit i know: the grass in the original shrek movie is not grass. its hair. they used hair textures for the grass bc the actual grass for some reason in their computer modelling programs would not behave like grass so they used hair textures colored green. speedoweedo elvis presley was a registered DEA officer who asked nixon for the title and was awarded it. ndiecity What else? WIZARD speedoweedo the great escape artist houdini was living in a time period where mysticism, fortune telling, ouija boards, seances and etc were becoming very common place and trendy. and he fucking hated it so much. so much that he would go to seances in disguise and make some bullshit off the wall shit like "my son died last year can you let me talk to him" and the seance person would be like 'THIS IS YOUR SON HELLO FATHER then he'd rip off his disguise and be like YOU FRAUD I HAVE NO CHILDREN. He died on Halloween night in detroit and as far as i know every year they hold seances on halloween trying to get in contact with his spirit. If seances work i bet his ghost is just pissed off and not responding out of raw spite speedoweedo foxes cant snarl like dogs and wolves cus the muscles in their muzzle dont allowe it so they just drop their jaws and scream. simon-newman Brain: *An extremely obscure fact from the subject I never studied in my life* Me: How the f*ck do we know this?

I did emergency management for the air force which involves this fun thing called Plume Modelling (aka chart the path of death for a given bomb based on its payload, distance, type of detonation, etc) and let me tell you some actual LEGIT™ methods of minimizing damage to your life. Unless you are within the vaporization zone (where you turn into a fucking shadow because of your proximity to the blast) there is a specific order of events nuke blasts cause and there are ways to protect against these things. 1. There is this thing called a flash to bang ratio. It is really freaking important. The first wave from a nuke is a blinding flash of light that can literally FRY YOUR RETINAS. If you believe that a nuke has just dropped on your city, HIDE AND DONT LOOK AT IT. @shesheistyy a good solid table is good for this but you’re way less likely to go blind if you get to an internal room with no windows, especially one below ground. 2. After the flash there will be the bang. If the time between the flash and the bang, counted in Mississippi seconds, is more than 10 seconds you MIGHT survive and just die of cancer later. If it’s between five and 10 buckle up kiddos because the worst is yet to come. And well if it’s less than 3 you won’t live long enough to remember this. These are loose estimates only. 3. The “bang” usually announces the arrival of the fire ball. Yes. A massive heat shock will erupt from the core of the bomb and light pretty much every thing it comes into contact with, including your flesh, on fire. Back to that whole “metal buildings underground” thing. There’s really no getting around the whole getting lit on fire if you’re too close thing. 4. Fallout. When the bomb goes off it sucks all of the shit it just vaporized up into the air with it and as the blast cools, it begins to rain down the radioactive fucked molten wreckage onto everyone in a huge radius. Just because the fallout you can see has stopped doesn’t mean the molecular radiation has stopped. The survival factors for nuclear blasts are time, distance and shielding. The longer it takes for it to get to you the less of it there is. The further away from the source the less dead you are. Want to survive? Put 6 feet of concrete and/or 2 feet of lead between you and everything else. Yes. Those loons with their bunkers actually got something right. NOW! About radiation! If you are so fortunate as to survive one of these blasts and not be vaporized or burnt to a crisp or die of radiation poisoning within hours, you need to understand the types of radiation. Gamma radiation is the most “severe” in that it can penetrate your flesh through your clothes and house, causing severe illness. Gamma radiation fucks with your cell walls and disrupts your DNA. It kills you in hours, months or years. Some people survive decades. Think of gamma like the sun. Too much exposure gives you cancer. Now Beta, on the other hand, think of Beta particles like sand on the beach. Its in the air. Its in your clothes, in the creases of your fingers. But beta particles can burn through your flesh or get into your blood stream through open wounds. Luckily they can be stopped with nonporous materials, like rubber, or foil. Make that two points for the loony conspiracy theorists. Aluminum foil does protect from beta radiation. And finally, Alpha radiation. Think of alpha Radiation like dust motes. It takes a high density filter to prevent you from breathing them in and if you’re surrounded by rubble they’re probably everywhere. Alpha particles do the same thing as beta particles in terms of getting into your system and wrecking your shit. So! Survival? Most likely based on dumb luck. But! If you think you’re being nuked 1. get under ground or at least to an internal room of the building if no other options are available. 2. CLOSE YOUR EYES. Curl into the fetal position to protect your orifices and vital organs from gamma radiation and get low to the ground to reduce damage from the blast and potential ceiling collapse. 3.You will still feel the flash pass over you. Count. One, two, three… If you aren’t vaporized yet keep counting. Pray to every god ever imagined that you get to 10 before you hear the bang. 4. Bang. Try not to shit yourself. The fireball will follow almost instantly if you’re in range. Be prepared to start rolling to put yourself out. 5. Fallout rains down. Do not open your eyes. Do not stop praying. As hard as it is because time will feel as if it has slowed to a crawl, try not to leave your position for at least 30 minutes, although 60 minutes is better. At 30 minutes, only 60% of the potential fall out has fallen but by 60 minutes, up to 90% may have come down. 6. Remember, Alpha and beta radiation are particles. Do not put anything in your body that has not been thoroughly washed, dusted of or came from a sealed package.

this is all 100% true but it always made me really mad that Chidi’s “crime” was having a severe anxiety disorder like he needed understanding and therapy, sending him to the Bad Place for something he had literally no control over was incredibly fucked up


I feel like a less-surface theme of the show is that they’re all in a situation where they have been forced into bad patterns by forces outside their control - Chidi has SEVERE anxiety; Eleanor was forced by abuse and neglect to adopt a self-centered attitude from early childhood and, like many people with traumatic pasts, responds by not dealing with difficult emotions; Jason was very overtly raised in an environment where he got no education and all his models for behaviour were criminal and/or self-destructive; and Tahani has been raised in an environment where everything is performative and she is shot down for any genuine expression of unhappiness or non-material want.

Desperate, Dick Pics, and Friends: eo0 Virgin 3:08 pm Hope YOU MATCHED WITH HOPE ON 1/11/17 Can't think of a pickup line but fingers crossed my failed modelling career will be enough to entice you for a few dates before we go our separate ways and forget about each other Yesterday 7:37 am You had me at failed modelling career. If drinks are involved in those dates I'm in We can awkwardly unmatch afterwards and pretend we're strangers when we match again Are you in? Yesterday 10:04 amm Drinks are a given, we'll need them to get past the awkward comment I make about us both having facial moles I'm in, but only if you make me pay and tell your friends you're just doing it for a free meal Yesterday 11:33 am I prefer the term 'beauty mark', you can buy me a drink while you think of a horrible pickup line about it Of course, but only if you tell all your friends I'm at least a 9 when you put a picture of me in the group chat Yesterday 12:53 pm Already done. This is all panning out perfectly, shall we say the 11th of November? Of course you have to flake on the first date to assert your superiority, and I'll let it slide cause I'm desperate to find somebody that will impress my mum Yesterday 5:52 pm That sounds perfect.

 YOU MATCHED WITH HOPE ON 1/11/17
 Can't think of a pickup line but
 fingers crossed my failed
 modelling career will be enough
 to entice you for a few dates
 before we go our separate ways
 and forget about each other
 Yesterday 7:37 am
 You had me at failed modelling
 career. If drinks are involved in
 those dates I'm in
 We can awkwardly unmatch
 afterwards and pretend we're
 strangers when we match again
 Are you in?
 Yesterday 10:04 amm
 Drinks are a given, we'll need
 them to get past the awkward
 comment I make about us both
 having facial moles
 I'm in, but only if you make me
 pay and tell your friends you're
 just doing it for a free meal
 Yesterday 11:33 am
 I prefer the term 'beauty mark',
 you can buy me a drink while you
 think of a horrible pickup line
 about it
 Of course, but only if you tell all
 your friends I'm at least a 9 when
 you put a picture of me in the
 group chat
 Yesterday 12:53 pm
 Already done. This is all panning
 out perfectly, shall we say the
 11th of November?
 Of course you have to flake on
 the first date to assert your
 superiority, and I'll let it slide
 cause I'm desperate to find
 somebody that will impress my
 mum
 Yesterday 5:52 pm
 That sounds perfect. I'll use my
 excuse of exams to reschedule
 last minute so I can start the
 psychological games
 And I'll let you use me to impress
 your mum only because it shows
 how respectful you are to her
 and women
 Yesterday 6:17 pm
 You're the best, I'd ask for your
 phone number to arrange this
 but I can't hold conversations so
 add me on snap instead -
 As you know I respect women so
 of course I won't ask for nudes or
 send unsolicited dick pics
