srsfunny: The Harry Potter Series And Its True Meaning: When people say these books are children's books, as if to demean them, I balk. These books dealt with themes that adults do not fully understand or wish to. It dealt with racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, prejudice, and general ignorance. These books taught us that it doesn't matter how you were raised, but at you get to choose to be kind, loyal, brave, and true. They taught us to be strong u nder the pressures of this world and to hold fast to what we know to be right. These books taught me so much, they changed me as a person. So just ause they're set against a fantastical backdrop with young protagonists does not mean that their value is any less real This First book Starts with the double murder of a pair of twenty-one year olds who e much missed and leaving their baby son a war orphan abusive conditions that would give Cinderella the horrors. Dealing with peers and teachers who are bulies. The fickleness of fame (from the darling of Gryffindor to the outcast.) The idea that there are things worth fighting and dying for, spoken by the child protagonist. Three children promptly acting on that willingness to sacrifice their lives, and two of them getting injured doing so Second book. The equivalent of racism with the pro-pureblood attitude by an eleven year old girl being groomed and then used by a charming, handsome older male. The imbalance of power and resultant abuse inherent in slavery. Fraud perpetuated by stealing something very intimate. Plot driven hird book: The equivalent of ableism with a decent, kind and competant adult being considered less than human because he has an illness that adversely affects his behaviour at certain times. A justice system that is the opposite of just. Promises of removing an abused child from the abusive environment can't always be kept. The innocent suffer while the guilty thrive. Fouth book: More fickleness of fame. The privileged mistreating and undermining the underprivileged because they can. A master punishing a slave for his own misjudgment, and the slave blaming herself. A sports tournament which involves mortal risk being cheered by spectators. A wonderful young man being murdered y because he was in the way. A young boy being tortured, humilated and nearly murdered. Fifth book: PTSD in the teenage protagonist. Severe depression in the protagonist's godfather, triggered by inherited mental health issues and being forced to stay in a house where abuse occured. A bigoted tyrant who lives to crush everyone under her heel, torturing a teenager for telling the truth in the name of the government (and trying to suck his soul out too).

The Riddle Solving Discourse, for any quest goers lurking about: jumpingjacktrash spicychickencows sirnotappearinginthisblog thefingerfuckingfemalefury kurtwagnermorelikekurtwagnerd kurtwagnermorelikekurtwagnerd you know what's always bugged me? when a character is faced with some magical two headed being or some shit and one always lies while the other tells the truth and to figure out which is which the character's like "which one of you is the liar" or something like bruh literally all you gotta do is be like "what's two plus two" one of them's gonna say four and the other one is gonna say 83 or some shit. there you go. answered. go on with your magical quest to defeat david bowie this has forty notes. that's forty more notes than expected THIS IS A VERY GOOD POINT and deserves more notes LISTEN idon't normally engage in Discourse but this information is DANGEROUSLY MISLEADING! the point of the riddle isn't to figure out which one is lying, in fact, knowing which one lies and which one tells the truth is irelevant. What you want is the correct answer from the magical beast/two guards/etc. Usually this means knowing which path to take. For that, you HAVE to ask it "if i ask the other head/guard/etc which is the safe way to go, what will hey tell me? if you asked the truth-telling one, they'Il tell you the wrong way because the liar will always mislead you. if you ask the liar, they'll tell you the wrong way, because they're misleading you, So ALWAYS do the opposite of whatever answer you get. who cares this is a stupid tumblr post this doesn't matter irl WRONG AGAIN! story time A few years ago a friend threw a halloween party, and since he dressed as the Riddler, he decided to have a riddle contest. now, i've been preparing for a riddle contest my entire life, since i first read the hobbit and it got bilbo out of trouble. for some reason, i assumed riddle contests were as inevitable as quicksand I answered the first riddle easily (it was one of the ones from the hobbit) and then i had to answer the next one to win a bottle of top- shelf rum. it was a variation on the two-guard riddle, only i had to choose one of two paper bags. one had crappy cheap vodka, the other the nice rum. the host and his friend did the classic one lies one tells the truth thing, and of course before i asked everyone started shouting "ask him what color your hair is!" and stuff like that, but i already knew what to ask, so i shushed them and won the rum remember, kids, it doesn't matter which one is lying and which one is telling the truth. all that matters is you get the correct knowledge to move you forward, win your rum, and make you seem like a superhuman riddle-solver to a crowd of drunken party guests always be ready for a riddle contest Here's a thing that usually doesn't come up when people try to criticise this riddle as well. One of the conditions of the riddle is typically that you only get to ask one question. You arrive at the liar and the truth teller and you need to find out which bridge is safe and which one will collapse when you're halfway across They tell you that one of them always lies and that one of them always tells the truth. And they tell you you can ask them one question If you ask "What's two plus two?" than great. You know which one lies but you also still don't know which bridge you can cross and can't find out. You played yourself i can get the answer in zero questions. block all the other exits, light them on fire, and see which way they run ALook at Alexander the Great up here, cutting the knot and all The Riddle Solving Discourse, for any quest goers lurking about

<p>Woman Is Unsure What This Woman Wanted When She Stopped Her In Walmart. But She Had No Idea She’d Say This.</p>: 2 hrs e I went into Wal-Mart to grab three things. Fruit Loops eggs & waffles. Healthy, I know. This woman was asking people for something and my goal was to bypass, get my things and go. She asked me to stop. I figured she was just asking for money and I already decided that I was going to politely let her know that I didn't have any cash on me. I never carry cash. I listened to her. She had groceries in her cart and asked for help to buy food for her family. She proceeded to tell me that she turned her daughter in for dope, her 2-month-old grand baby was born addicted to crack and she has 6 grandchildren to take care of. I really felt for her. She was sobbing. See, I know stories like this to be FACT from working in an inner-city school and my husband working in a hospital. Babies are unfortunately born addicted all the time & responsibility of raising grandbabies does fall on the grandparents. She asked me if I would help her buy groceries. I looked at what I had in my hands compared to what she had. She had shopped smart and had healthy food: bananas, bell peppers, meat, pancakes, etc. Practical things you would make meals with and feed children. I told her yes, go get diapers for the baby and meet me at the front. She sobbed, praised God and said hallelujah to the cashiers,etc. Yesterday, I turned 30, had my healthy family by my side, ate tons of crawfish and blew $20 at the casino for the heck of it. Well, I checked my humanity today. This woman has food to put on her table and even if she wasn't telling the truth, I don't even care in the least. She's human, I'm human and today she helped me realize a few things and I hope that I helped her. She won't have to worry for at least a little while about food. I didn't expect this today but apparently I was called to it and was right where I needed to be. (she wouldn't smile bc she didn't have teeth but she said she hoped her heart showed through how happy she was) EGE OF PHARMACY <p>Woman Is Unsure What This Woman Wanted When She Stopped Her In Walmart.
