Bitch, Irish, and Love: Bob Nicholson @DigiVictorian I find myself lost (not for the first time...) in a dictionary of Victorian slang. This is still my favourite: IS IS Got the morbs (Soe., 1880). Temporary melancholia Abstract noun coined from adjeetive morbid. 2016-12-15, 10:06 AM dysphoric-memez: the-porter-rockwell: thebibliosphere: thecuriousviolet: breelandwalker: nineprotons: “Got the morbs” should be a thing. Victorian slang is AMAZING, and select phrases really need to make a comeback. “Bitch the pot” - Pour the tea (HOW RELEVANT IS THIS!?) “Bang up the elephant” - Absolutely perfect; super stylish “Well, that’s shot the bale” - Something that has missed the mark entirely “Church-bell” - A woman prone to gossip “Chuckaboo” - A dear friend, a bosom chum “Beer and skittles” - A great time (see also: Irish Gaelic “craic”) “Butter on bacon” - Something overdone or too extravagant “Cupid’s kettle drums” - Breasts, particularly large ones “Gigglemug” - A cheerful smiling face All of these??? Make me smile??? They’re so weird and wonderful I love them??? Especially bitch the pot because that’s something I could totally hear myself saying…that and chuckaboo I worked in a Victorian tea house in my youth and I’m telling you, you haven’t lived till you hear a the 98 year old lady (this was some 15 years ago) utter the words “bitch the pot” because it was what they used to say when the tea house first opened and it just sort of stuck through all the generations. i can hear these in both British accents and southern accents. Old southern people use a lot of these tbh

Love, Tumblr, and Weird: Purple Primary Silver Secondary Black Tertiary Blue primary black primary green secondary silver tertiary Light Blue Primary Orange Secondary Teal Tertiary Red secondary gold tertiary? whats this second, darker blue where the secondary color should go? why are the sec- ondary accents where the tertiary colors should be? Fine sometimes, but almost com- pleterly erases the gold This model puts its secondary colors in places where it's tertiary should go, creating a sense of unbalanced blue/red, and far less gold or yellow than it should have. This model accomplishes what the paris model set out to do- they put black on hips (where other model's secondary (and sometimes tertiary) color goes) This gives Houston a larger primary-to-sec- ondary color ratio. Worth noting that most skins for London are actu Same breakdown as London ally bright blue primary, teal secondary, and orange accents. It could be argued that orange is stll teri tary in this model, but thats almost more damning for paris. Where is their red arm? Why, again, is his shitty hoody red? because gold doesnt work? shouldnt it have been blue instead? and then have the hip pad underneath and arm both be red? be argued tha ost more damn his ody red? becauS nstead? aered? a much more pronounced gold color from a team without any gold even in their logo OMEGALUL Special callout for the dragon skin: They decided to use their primary red color in the legs where every other team puts their tertiary color... very interesting choice *where did the two different blues go from the doomfist model? here theres only one- why is gold so bronze compared to doomfist? Why do they try to make the skin red/blue split even here but more blue on doomfist? only one Look at that sweet gold shine, paris... whatchu doin sweetie P A RIS ETERNAL overwatchleaguepride: Lets talk about Paris……beyond the uninspired color choice. Let’s ignore that paris and DC (and, ugh, fineeee nyxl) have the same-ish colors. There’s some big things wrong here, at least in my opinion:1. On doomfist’s skin, Paris attempts a unique choice that only nyxl, houston, and seoul have done. They try to push the primary color. Look at the Houston doomfist skin vs the London and Glads one. While all technically have three colors, Houston looks overwhelmingly more like it’s primary black color, and then green, and then if you really look, you can see the silver tertiary color. Paris attempts this- but does one weird thing: they introduce a fourth color. Where the inside of his arm should be red, they put a second, darker blue. :/ hmmm2. In contrast to that, on Widow, they seem to give up on the idea of a more dominant blue color and don’t follow the nyxl/houston/seoul model of more primary color and less secondary. Here, they do what all the other teams do and put primary on body, secondary on legs, and accent on armor bits and leggy criss-cross things. Exceeeeept…. they dont have their gold accents non the hips! Why, if they’re not going to do what nyxl/houston/seoul do and push the primary? All it servers to do is make the red/blue size difference even more even! Also- their gold on her is… bronze looking. Much much darker than the gold on doomfist or on the other team. Weird. 3. The logo. Hoo boy that logo. Why do they have that terrible contrast? Why is the largest, brightest piece of it the yellow if they’re going a) use gold and b) hide the gold on their skins anyway? Why push the blue primary on their logo and on some skins but not on other skins? …anyway- I’m gonna assume this is super boring to most people, but if anyone likes design, I’d love to hear what you think!

America, Bless Up, and Bruh: My (almost 16) good boy is deaf. He didn't hear us come through the back and thinks we are still in the car. vid: reddit u/romansamurai Dromashlove 0:00 0:26 Bro. Tell me why every American hit show got a lead actor playing an American but in real life he British asf with a British accent. The Wire - Dominic West is a Brit. Walking Dead - Andrew Lincoln is a Brit...hol up...AND Lennie James is a Brit! Watch a interview bruv! Your head will explode! On walking dead u see Lennie playing Morgan Jones sounding American asf and then u see a interview and he wearing spectacles and a flannel shirt talmbout “Oi play the charactah Morgan Jewns in Wohkeeng Ded it’s really quat briyyant Cheerio!” Nah.

In fact I got a theory. To be honest bruh? I think y’all talk normal English and sound just like Americans when y’all hanging out in secret but when u in public u put on that cherrio lad accent YALL AINT FOOLING ME 😂. I think y’all put that accent on when the camera rolling and I don’t blame y’all. When y’all acting in American shows that’s when u talk in ya real accent I’m CONVINCED 😂. Like every kid born in England his mama like “Ello, James. Yo foive yeaz old now so eets time we told yew the truth: oi dewnt really towk like theese. In fact, James *American accent* I talk like this. Just like Americans. But we used to be the global colonial super power at once and what distinguished us is our refined English speech SEW NOW YEW GOT TO LEAHN BOTH. IN PROIVATE, YEW CAN TAWK NOH-MAL. IN PUBLIC YEW MUST SPEAK WITH THIS CHEERIO-BRIYYANT-VERY GOOD GUVANNAH TYPE AFFECTATION. OKAY JAMES? And James just like “wow we thought the Canadians were wild for doing the English-French joint but we literally speak English TWO TYPE OF WAYS? Yes James. Yes. But guess what? It’s finna allow u to colonize acting like ya forefathers colonized India LMAOOO. AND IT AIN’T EEN A RACE THING. OL BOY FROM “Get Out”? BRITISH ASF 😂.

Beer, Confidence, and Driving: 15 Dead Giveaways That Somebody Is American, As Told Bv Non-Americans. Friendly to the point that you become suspicious of their intent 1. Americans generally are more confident in the way they present themselves, most other countries tend to be more reserved. Walk into a room full of different nationalities, I guarantee the American person will be the first to introduce themselves. It's a confidence thing, and I admire it. 2. 3. When they use the imperial system. 4. Wearing sneakers with anything 5. Big smiles, firm handshakes Using big adjectives generously ("Wow, your aunt's kidney stones sound awesome!" or "This Euroshopper beer tastes great!") 6. Mostly it's the 'prepared for anything' look they have about them (fanny pack, backpack, bottled water, camera pouch) compared to various other tourists Asians tend to herd together for safety, while Europeans vary between blend-right-in Scandinavian to designer-brands-everywhere French and traffic-laws-are-for-others Italian. But Americans are the only ones who seem to view a perfectly civilized, modern city like some kind of uncharted jungle that doesn't have places to shelter in the rain or buy cheap bottled water. 7. 8. They say 'great' and are not being sarcastic. I can't even begin to imagine making a sentence where great actually means great. 9. Constant clapping Being surprised about the topless models on page 3. 10. Speaking as a former barman or "bartender" as American customers would say... tipping! No British person will ever tip a barman. I'll occasionally get bought a drink by drunk ladies or gents, but Brits actually giving me money for doing a job that I was already being paid for? Never happened. I would listen for American accents (which were easy to hear due to their natural loudness) and immediately serve them next. 11. Americans describe distances in driving time, as opposed to miles or kilometers. 12. The dead giveaway is when they call you "honey" or "sweetie" or "darling". 13. 14. North face jackets. Everywhere. Incredibly loud but incredibly friendly Very often you can hear them before you see them 15. srsfunny:We Do Love Americans
