Welcome to my blog can cal had a discussion about the racially-charged depiction of orcs in many fantasy I guess settings with a friend of mine. He mentioned that orcs are his favorite race to play f you know me please don 't use my as in many RPGs, and told me that one of his favorite games (unfortunately, I've eal name I mostly post Homestuck, D&D, & et) did a fantastic job of turning their racist myth forgotten the title os completely Sometimes my own upside-down. Rather than behaving like a walking black stereotype, the orcs in this particular game behaved like stereotypical white, British sports jocks. They're still the burly, violent, generally stupid orcs we all know and love, but their racist Wut?

That…http://omg-humor.tumblr.com: SARINGAN, Emanuel Josef V. Malacahang Field Trip Hi 166- Section D Never has the Philippines had a more symbolic seat of power than "the Palace", Seeing it in real life is going to give any Filipino the chills especially those who aspire to hold the coveted position later. We give credit to all those leaders who carried the nation along with its problems by creating a palace that you, as a taxpayer, probably wanted to occupy too. The story the museum holds, which spans from 1750 up to the present however, is more than a picture in the 20 peso bill. It is a symbol which binds us to pever again act as individuals in a state but rather as citizens who are part of a democracy. However, going to the Malacañang is figuratively and literally difficult since 1.) Becoming the president is destiny, let alone the fact that 2.) Travelling from Ateneo to Mendiola is not so straightforward. You know that you are near Malacañang when the university belt and a group of rallyists welcome you upon going down the MRT station. Once inside the complex, Mr. Lacierda's jokes made up for the fact that PNoy never showed up. His absence is understandable since he is in the US. but I believe that any trip is not going to be complete without the President himself. The tour began and the sights of the old but not yet run down palace amazed me due of the incredible maintenance efforts that sustained the complex for around 3 centuries. We then went to the galleries and experienced a blast from the past as we strode and listened to the guide who knows everything about every thing in the museum. We had to enter and desert offices in the same way our presidents did back then and after a tiring visitation of 15 galleries, you probably would be thankful that we did not have as many presidents as the U.S. Prior to the tour, never have I thought that Malacañang was interesting. I saw the first air con system (which I think is not going to malfunction anytime soon) in the country and the million dollar chandeliers which I could not make out in my imagination what they are for. Such extravagant items that Pres. Quezon bought teases you to think of how tempting it is to hold such powers. Indeed, future presidents made people live and cry during their terms but they are recorded in history nonetheless. The Martial Law chair that FM used never became the ordinary chair that it was after the declaration but was rather immortalized and is going to be a symbol that evokes fear long after its owner died. However, Yin and Yang philosophers will say otherwise since some people benefitted too. Such is the truth behind history, it is never one-sided. Goodbye is difficult to say for presidents who leave Malacalang. Such is also the case for us who will never forget how the staff welcomed and accommodated us wholeheartedly. Somehow the Palace is going to occupy a place in my memory because it has inspired me and renewed my pride so that I could tell the world that I am a Filipino, At the end of all that is told about the Palace's history, it remains as asymbol of public service. Despite our bad political track record where it is normal for people to steal le and cheat, it should not discourage our generation to make a change but rather see is as a challenge and an inspiration to serve others. Malacañang is a pedestal high enough for us to see those who are hurt and oppressed and it is upon us whether to act or not. That's all for now Malacañang, I hope to see ou ugain in the future. 1 am looking forward to being an occupant of yours someday. YOU SIR Were just Rick Rolled TASTE OF AWESOME.COM THAT...
