How to choose an heir to the throne: amusewithaview incorrectdiscworldquotes roachpatrol magica-tenore-regina lizthefangirl ademigodgirl rainbow-bear A king has no sons, no daughters, and no queen. For this reason he must decide who will take the throne after he dies. To do this he decides that he will give all of the children of the kingdom a single seed. Whichever child has the largest, most beautiful plant will earn the throne, this being a metaphor for the kingdom. At the end of the contest all of the children came to the palace with their enormous and beautiful plants in hand. After he looks at all of the children's pots, he finally decides that the little girl with an empty pot will be the next Queen. Why did he choose this little girl over all of the other children with their beautiful plants The seeds were all dead (burned, fake, etc.). The other kids cheated and got different seeds and planted them. The little girl didn't cheat and was not able to grow anything because the seed was dead. She was the only one who didn't cheat. damn Nothing like original fairy tales! i get the moral it's trying to convey but that king is an idiot and the kingdom's doomed. you don't appoint an honest kid who will forthrightly admit a failure like that to leadership of a country, you put that kid in charge of like... the army, or something. the department of agriculture i'd send out dead seeds, then appoint the kid with the biggest and most beautiful plant anyway. ideally the same kind of plant as the dead seeds were from. and ideally a kid with a really good pokerface. that kid knows a) how to perceive failure early (a well developed second plant means they knew how soon the first seeds should sprout and didn't fuck around when they didn't) b) how to fix the situation (a second plant of the same species means they got someone to help them identify the seeds and plant more, or are observant enough to do it themselves) c) how to get the best people for a job in to do it (kids aren't great gardeners. a beautiful science project probably means mom did all the work-just what you want from a child ruler and their regent) all around, that kid (or their mom) is the kind of devious results-oriented bald-faced liar you want to go toe-to-toe with the lords of your country and the rulers of your neighbors. not a little kid who admits defeat so early and in a situation with such high stakes. whoops i didn't grow a plant' sounds a lot less sweet when you phrase it like 'i give up on ruling my country you know, i think i'd also send agents out to encourage the kids to destroy each other's plants. let's see who's good at seige warfare, too Did Lord Vetinari write that post?

High Stakes: Cash, Rules, Everything, Around, Me C.R. E. A.M Get The Mo ne Dollar, D ollar Bill Y'alI I grew up on the crime side, the New York Times side. Staying alive was no jive. At second hands, moms bounced on old men So then we moved to Shaolin land. A young youth, yo rockin the gold tooth, 'Lo goose. Only way, I begin to gee off was drug loot And let's start it like this son, rollin with this one. And that one, pullin out gats for fun. But it was just a dream for the teen, who was a fiend. Started smokin woolies at sixteen. And running up in gates, and doing hits for high stake. Making my way on fire escapes. No question I would speed, for cracks and weed. The combination made my eyes bleed. No question I would flow off, and try to get the dough all. Sticking up white boys in ball courts. My life got no better, same damn 'Lo sweater. Times is ruff and tuff like leather Figured out I went the wrong route. So I got with a sick ass click and went all out. Catchin keys from across seas. Rollin in MPVs every week we made forty G's. Yo nigga respect mine, or anger the tech nine. Ch-chick-POW! Move from the gate now It's been twenty-two long hard years of still strugglin. Survival got me Jakes givin chase sellin base. Smokin bones in the staircase. Though I buggin, but I'm alive on arrival. I peep at the shape of the streets. And don't know why I chose to smoke sess. I guess that's the time when stay awake to the ways of the world cause shit is deep. A man with a I'm not depressed. But I'm stil depressed, and I ask what's it worth? dream with plans to make CR. Ε.Α.Μ. which failed; I went to jail at the Ready to give up so I seek the Old Earth. Who explained working hard age of 15. A young buck sellin drugs and such who never had much. may help you maintain. To learn to overcome the heartaches and pain Trying to get a clutch at what I could not.The court played me short, We got stickup kids, corrupt cops, and crack rocks and stray shots, all now I face incarceration. Pacin, going up state's my destination. Hand on the block that stays hot. Leave it up to me while I be living proof. To cuffed in back of a bus, forty of us. Life as a shorty shouldn't be so ruff. kick the truth to the young black youth. But shorty's running wild smokin But as the world turns I learned life is hl. Living in the world no sess drinkin beer. And ain't trying to hear what I'm kickin in his ear different from a cell. Everyday I escape from Neglected, but now, but yo, it gots to be accepted.

nillia: ramblingtreehugger: nillia: flawlessloser: shakspeare: nillia: For the first time ever, networks are promising to consider the 30 most up-voted questions submitted by Americans. Currently, it seems like FWD:FWD:Re: style conservatives are submitting and voting the most,as the top questions are more like accusations aimed at specifically Hillary, or prompts for Trump to regurgitate his favorite buzzwords. We have the Internet too. We have a voice: let’s use it in venues outside tumblr so Trump doesn’t get more advantages. Vote on and submit meaningful questions that challenge both candidates to talk policy. Please vote on my first question, linked here and above, which challenges both candidates to offer their opinion on LGBT and suggest real solutions that can work against the “religious freedom” arguments of the Alt-Right. My second question focuses on how at-risk (poor, often minority) students and students with disabilities fare under high-stakes testing. Please vote for it here. Please Reblog. Tweet. Facebook. We can do this. DO THIS! So far the highest voted questions are thinly veiled jibes about deleting emails - just chances for Trump to go off on one. THIS TAKES LIKE TWO SECONDS! The right are very active when it comes to shit like this so don’t let them win it over, like the o.p says we have the internet too so let’s level this playing field. Let’s make Trump really struggle. Seriously guys, please go to this site! The top ones are stupid questions involving gun control and a couple asking why requiring and for ID to vote is racist -__- Help the real important questions be on top! We have worked our way up to 700 votes since last night! Thank you! Let’s increase that momentum. The networks are only considering the top 30 questions, and they all have thousands of votes.   Our GOAL is to reach 3000 to start to catch up tomorrow. Most of the top 30 questions are proudly deplorable gifts to Trump. It would be a double victory if we made this go viral enough to not only prompt a dialogue on LGBT issues, but to also knock off one of those terrible questions! Other questions worth bolstering (You can vote for multiple questions): Decriminalizing Marijuana Internet Freedom/ Net Neutrality Education to include Computer Science Gerrymandering / Rigged elections Climate Change Income Inequality/Taxes Congressional Term Limit Healthcare Human Right Access to Abortion Infrastructure  Criminal Injustice and Black Incarceration High Stakes Testing SIGNAL BOOST, TWEET, FACEBOOK, GO! We’ll return to the regularly scheduled tree pictures and such momentarily, but we’re in the last stretch here guys. It’s almost over, but let’s take them to task first shall we? GREAT JOB EVERYONE!
