Creepy, Petty, and Tumblr: cruelfeline: I’ve seen some people expressing their dislike for Hordimus Horde Prime’s design, specifically his asymmetrical eyes, and I must say, I disagree.First, I like the squicky noise they make when he blinks in that one scene.  Second, and actually important, I think that a set of asymmetrical eyes that look in multiple different directions is utterly perfect for him in terms of… well, his imperfection. I feel like that’s the whole point of the design: the perfection isn’t real.This is a character who is so obsessed with control, order, and perfection that his subordinate, Hordak, has deeply ingrained emotional issues as a result. Prime views himself as the perfect being, and what better way to indicate that this view is based on petty narcissism rather than reality than by giving him a set of creepy asymmetrical eyes? Eyes that no one would find perfect unless they were explicitly told to.Horde Prime isn’t perfect because he’s actually, truly flawless; he’s perfect because he says he’s perfect, just as Hordak is imperfect because he says he’s imperfect. Perfection, in the case of real people, is not only unobtainable, it’s essentially arbitrary. A perfect feature to me might be ugly to you, and vice versa. It’s all subjective. Portraying it as an immutable fact is a lie that Prime perpetuates in order to maintain power.

Animals, Bad, and Butt: goddamnshinyrock: why-animals-do-the-thing: wolfforce58205: zooophagous: caong: zooophagous: theexoticvet: Tick season is already in full swing and it’s going to be one of the worst years for ticks and lyme disease. Make sure your pets are on flea/tick/heartworm prevention and get your dogs vaccinated against lyme! The sun is shining and the grass is green in minnesota today, what a lovely beginning to the impending TICKPOCALYPSE Remember to cover yourselves appropriately if you’re going places with lots of wildlife! Ticks are dangerous for people as well as pets! I’ve always heard to avoid long pants because ticks are easier to notice and remove when they try to climb a bare leg, but I think it’s a matter of preference tbh. What you really need is to use a good repellant made for use in tick heavy areas. I’m not talking citronella essential oils, I mean a real repellant like Deep woods OFF that uses DDT. Spray it on your shoes and inside your shoes. You would be surprised how many ticks start in your socks and work their way up. I have had waaaaaay fewer guests on me after spraying my shoes as well as my legs. If you want to get REALLY serious you can treat your hiking gear in permethrin, or get permethrin treated exercise gear. It’s a very potent, effective substance that kills ticks and other parasites on contact. It’s present in some flea and tick treatments for dogs. But the kicker is, permethrin is also VERY toxic to cats, so if you have a cat and you feel like you need permethrin treated gear, you MUST keep the gear where kitty can’t get it. Friendly reminder to stock up on tick meds for your pets, and repellent for yourself! This year is going to be a BAD one. ALWAYS check yourself after a hike, or any trip outside. Wear bright clothes so it’s easier to see ticks on you, and make sure to do a full-body check when you’re done. This includes checking your hair line and under waistbands or underwear (last tick I found on me was on my butt, and I had been hiking with pants and a long shirt on…trust me, check under your underwear). Remove ticks as soon as you find them, and keep them in a small container or bag (heads completely squished) for identification purposes just in case your bite looks iffy later on. Clean the bite site thoroughly. Be on the look out for any flu-like symptoms, rashes, or red rings around the bite site like a bulls-eye (note: a slight red ring right afterward is normal, see below for what “bad” looks like). Usually if you get a tick off in the first 24 hours you’ll be ok, so long as you didn’t agitate the tick, but if you notice anything abnormal go to the doctor ASAP. If your tick was engorged when removed, be especially on the lookout. It’s always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to the nasty diseases ticks can carry. Remember: if you’re buying tick preventatives for your pets, make sure you get one that’s meant for them. Don’t use dog-specific medicine on cats, or vice-versa, and make sure you get the correct weight range for your pet. Failure to do so can lead to serious complications for your pets. If you’re not sure what you should use or what’s safe for pets, contact your local veterinarian and ask. If your pet is bitten by a tick and displays any abnormal behaviors or symptoms of sickness get them to your vet as soon as you can and bring the tick with you. This has been your tick safety reminder post for the season. Reblogging for both human tick safety and the note that permethrin is really deadly to cats. important addition: when you come in from your outdoors activity, as you do your tick check put the clothes you were wearing directly into the wash (or, if you can’t wash them immediately for some reason, into a sealed plastic bag). Don’t sit on your furniture, don’t put the clothes in your hamper with your other things, and don’t delay the tick check. If a tick is on the removed clothing and the clothing isn’t cleaned, they’ll head for the nearest delicious mammal, whether that’s a person or a pet. After you quarantine your clothes and check your whole body (get a buddy or use a mirror for your back), it’s also wise to shower, although that’s by no means foolproof, and won’t have any effect if a tick has already latched on.  When you do your check, focus on the crevices of your body- on people and animals, ticks are most likely to latch on in warm and protected areas. This means that the groin, underarms, and scalp are a prime tick buffet, as well as under your bra and (as someone above said) under your waistband, or any other area where your clothing fits snugly. On pets, they’ll concentrate in the thicker fur at the neck, behind the ears, and in the ‘armpits’, but you’ll likely also find a few elsewhere on the body, especially on pets with fluffy coats.

Whenever decisions were made, the 22-year-old would always defer to the 24-year-old. He was the one who would decide things for both of them. Because in their culture even when it comes to peers you pay respect to those older than you. That’s a concept that’s pretty much foreign in Western culture. Definitely not an “Anglo white people” thing.</p>

Apparently, News, and Tumblr: Overwatch League Key Dates Aug. 1, 2018: Signing window opens for teams to negotiate extensions with current players or to sign players from their affiliated Contenders team. Teams may also begin making player trades Sept. 9, 2018: Inaugural-season agreements officially end. Any players not under contract become free agents. Sept. 9-0ct. 7, 2018: Exclusive window for Overwatch League expansion teams to sign free agents. Oct. 8, 2018: Free-agent signing window opens for all teams. All teams must have a minimum of eight players under contract by Dec. 1,2018. Teams may sign or trade players until a final deadline during the 2019 season that will be announced at a later date. Players who turn 18 prior to the season deadline are eligible to sign Overwatch League contracts for the 2019 season. While the date has yet to be finalized, players born before May 1, 2001, will be eligible. Beginning with the 2019 season, the term of player agreements will no longer be fixed at one year with an additional one-year option. Players and teams may negotiate contracts for up to three years, with a maximum of one year as an option in addition to one or two guaranteed years All contracts must be submitted to the League Office for review and approval. Two-Way Players For the 2019 Overwatch League season, teams and players may negotiate the right to designate the player as eligible to compete in Contenders on an affiliated team. Any player on the roster may agree to be eligible for Contenders play, but a maximum of four players may be designated as "two-way" players during each Overwatch League stage, and those players must be identified and submitted to the League Office prior to each stage. Two way players are eligible to compete in Contenders, subject o the ollowing ules Regardless of where they play, two-way players count toward the Overwatch League roster limit of 12 and must earn the same salary and benefits. Two-way players also will count towards the eight-player Contenders roster limit for weeks in which their Contenders team designates them as eligible to compete. Two-way players lose their Contenders eligibility if they appear in more than two Overwatch League matches in a stage. A maximum of two designated two-way players may compete in any single Contenders match. No player will be eligible to appear in both Contenders and Overwatch League matches in the same week. snill0: Interesting article just came out about the player rosters for OWL 2019 Important thing to note is that they’re pushing the minimum rosters to 8 players, obviously expansion teams should be coming into the season with more than that based off how this inaugural season went (players facing burnout, mayhem’s 6 roster performance, etc). Also, players are able to negotiate contract lengths, this is super important to giving players more power since we don’t have a union yet and after finding out about the Mayhem players’ contracts+salary vs contenders players (long story short they’re rumored to be payed less than their contenders roster who are apparently the inactive spitfire players because they’re locked for potentially 2 yrs) it shows there’s some poor management going on. Free agency could be spicy too depending on how many people get cut after their inaugural season performance. As much as I hate to admit it there’s obviously some players that have fallen off, but some still have the potential and under a new team with capable players I think we can see some make a comeback. As many have said, these players are OWL caliber in terms of mechanics but it’s about the teamplay and whether their style works well. 2 Way players is another thing I’m eye’ing because letting people who are OWL level play in contenders (or vice versa) could throw some big curveballs in terms of strategies. I’m also wondering if it’s going to be used often, maybe as a way to get those benched players still playing competitive matches once in awhile.

Alive, America, and Animals: What should I absolutely not do when visiting the USA? Charlie Knoles, I have lived in 5 countries and am an Aussie expat in the USA Answered 2d ago + Don't get out of your car ifyou get pulled over by police. I was pulled over by a police officer while driving in Iowa. It was one week afterI had arrived in the USA for the first time. I had accidentally made a minor mistake disobeying a traffic sign. Back home in Australia it's considered polite to get out of your car and walk over to the police officer's car and hand him your license so he doesn't have to get out of his seat. I wanted to be extra polite so I immediately jumped out of my car and walked towards his car while reaching into my back pocket. I'm lucky to be alive. If you come from a gun-free country like the UK or Australia you don't have any natural instinct for gun culture. You don't realize that police assume that everyone is armed. Things got immediately serious. The police officer's hand went to his weapon and I responded by dropping to my knees with my hands up. He yelled a bunch of things at me but my memory is vague because my heartbeat was suddenly pulsing in my ears blotting out all sound. I don't know if he drew his weapon or not. I was staring intently at the ground, shaking and trying to project non- threatening vibes. My next memory is that there were three police cars around me and a bunch of cops who'd been called for backup. They were all keeping their hands close to their guns. After some time passed (a minute? 30 minutes?I have no idea) the tensions de-escalated and they told me to get up. I gave the officer my license and tried to explain why I'd approached him. It was completely incomprehensible to him that there was a place where people don't fear cops and vice versa at traffic stops. It was as though I was trying to tell him that I came from Narnia and our cops were all talking animals. I've spoken to several British people, New Zealanders, and Australians who have shared almost identical stories. They really need to put signs up in all major US airports. Don't get out of your car if stopped by police. They will assume you are armed and they might shoot you. reverend-spines: kazooie: I had never thought about this, America is scary. this is wild, i cant imagine anyone approaching a police officer after getting pulled over

Africa, Community, and Saw: African audiences are having a very emotional response to Black Panther: 'We were humanised, and that matters' share The African premiere was held in Lupita Nyong'o's home county in Kenya CREDIT: REUTERS/MARIO ANZUONI ithelpstodream: Black Panther has already roared to victory at the US box office, but it’s getting an especially warm welcome in its spiritual home. The film's setting, Wakanda, may be a fictional African nation, but the countries that inspired it are celebrating the film’s release and the depiction of various African cultures on screen.  The Nigerian premiere in Lagos saw A-List celebrities celebrating their heritage in traditionally-inspired costumes for the theme “African Royalty”. Speaking to The Vanguard, actor Sope Aluke explained how the cast felt they wanted to improve African representation: “Usually in Hollywood, you’re just African. They will use a Nigerian actor with a Nigerian accent to play a Kenyan character or vice versa.” Aluko is one of five Nigerian actors in Black Panther and said the enthusiasm for the film in African countries had come as a pleasant surprise: “We knew that we had a responsibility towards Africa and the black community in general while shooting this movie, but I didn’t expect anything like this, all this enthusiasm coming from the black community.” http://www.telegraph.co.uk/films/2018/02/21/african-audiences-having-emotional-response-black-panther-humanised/
