Apparently, Confused, and Friends: solarmorrigan So. 10th grade English class, We all come in one morning to find a balloon and a perfectly sharpened pencil on each of our desks. No instructions, no explanation, which is strange, because our teacher is meticulous about that sort of thing A couple of people try to ask her and she says we'll get to it. She takes role and then announces that she needs to go to the copy room and she'll be back in a couple of minutes Kinda unorthodox, but no one is complaining because this is advanced English and the teacher usually goes kinda hard. So. y'know. Brief respite. We all sit and chat, one of the boys teasingly steals a girl's bailoon, but gives it back to her easily enough; it's quiet and kind of a nice break. Then the teacher comes back stops in the doorway, and just stares at us After a long moment she says, confused, "You didn't pop the balloons To which one of the guys about two rows over exclaims, "We re allowed to pop them? and immediately turms around and stabs his friend's balloon with the pencil There is a vicious revenge balloon-stabbing, and a few more people pop seatmates balloons or their own, and the whole time the teacher is just shaking her head. 1 can't believe you didn't pop your balloons Apparently we were starting Lord of the Fies that day and she wanted to demonstrate the basic concept of kids turning on each other when there are no authority figures present and it was basically my favorite failed social experiment ever vansnailismylife Back in my 10th grade we did a similar things around Lord of the Flies, where we had a test scheduled for that day, and when we walked in, the teacher took role by looking through the window of the door and never entered the classroom On the board were three tasks written and the teacher had brought in donuts. At first we all sat around and waited for the teacher to come in, but eventually we just started tackling the ist of tasks. Task 1-the test. Everybody took it silently, no one cheated, everyone turned it in and we went on to Task Two tidy up the room, So we did, we split into a couple groups and each one cleaned an area of the room. Task Three Hand out the donuts. There were 12 donuts, and 30 of us. So we split the donuts into thirds, each took a third, and left the extras for the teacher After this, the teacher came in absolutely FUMING She was so upset we had followed all the rules and completed the tasks. Apparently she had been texting kids telling them to start some chaos but they all ignored it because they were too nice She tied to dock our grades for not going absolutely wild because it meant her class didnt get the point across hookedonafeeeling That's because lord of the flies isnt representative of humanity its representative of rich white male shitheads 23+ Haha Tumblr Posts For An Awesome Day – Ladplus

Ass, Friends, and Work: Sam Winkler @ThatSamWinkler 16h Sam Winkler Replying to @ThatSamWinkler FL4K being non-binary came up very organically, early on when we were still fleshing out the character. An NB dev was the first to suggest it, and the idea stuck quickly. Since we announced, it's been one of the @ThatSamWinkler Here's a short thread about FL4K because they've become such a topic of conversation today: most common things I've been asked about by fans and devs alike. 2/7 I am ridiculously proud to work at @GearboxOfficial for a long list of reasons, but how and why this character detail came about is way the hell up there. 1 209 27 Sam Winkler @ThatSamWinkler 16h From the moment it was suggested, there was never a question of "is this worth doing?" only "how do we do this right?" The writing team got nothing but support from the key stakeholders. As a creative group, we all want to make a story as rich and varied as reality. 3/7 1/7 9:14 PM Aug 13, 2019 TweetDeck Sam Winkler @ThatSamWinkler 16h We as an industry have a long way to go, and this single character is just a tiny part of a huge conversation. But today I've seen a Sam Winkler @ThatSamWinkler 16h Representation in media matters. I grew up with asthma, and pretty much all I or my friends knew about it was the "sucks to your ass-mar" line from Lord of the Flies (or the Simpson ep that aped it). It sucked. Not a lot of asthmatic superheroes at the time. 4/7 Cavalcade of people learning, listening, and having good-faith conversations about who we get to see in games. And that rules. 6/7 t 4 166 3 3 166 1 Sam Winkler @ThatSamWinkler 16h Maybe if I'd had better cultural touchstones besides being the resident wheezing dipshit, | don't have a good way to end this, so 'll just Sam Winkler @ThatSamWinkler 16h wouldn't have felt so much shame about a steal @meakoopa's signature benediction and say be brave enough to be kind. 7/7 facet of myself. So when someone tells me they don't see themselves in a game, I want to listen, and if I'm able I want to help. 5/7 t 3 2 185 1 1l4 174 > Seeing Sam Winkler explaining the importance of FL4K being non-binary put a huge smile on my face!

Clothes, Facepalm, and Feminism: #ISayltsNotOK BECAUSE I AM A GIRL PLAN INTERNATIONAL Replies months ago (edited) Polly ApartmentViews That was not a stupid comment. This video is ludicrous and the criminal penalties anti male feminists are pushing for in many countries will disproportionately effect the working class, impoverished and homeless. I'm in the U.S but we see this same "anti street harassment" crusade in several countries. It's cherry picked, overblown, hysterical and full of fear mongering. Cat calling & wolf whistles (which "harassment") are not only common in a few select are cities in multiple countries. It's common in cities due to diversity. What you might call street harassment (different individuals having the gaul to whistle, say hello or smile to you on a pubic sidewalk in a bustling city) is called street flirting in Italy. It has a very different cultural context. The fact that people/feminists have cherry picked only the things men say shows you this is an anti male, biased, crusade. Women also shout things on the streets. Prostitutes try to get men's attention, homeless people ask for change, hustlers try to sell merchandise, drug addicts and the mentally ill are constantly going off on tangents. To act as if only the men whistling at women or saying hello/smile is a matter of public safety & concern that must addressed through legal channels is absurd!! It's man hating lesbian separatist radical feminism. They pulled the same countries during the 1970s, after demanding that thing in the U.K and other women stop sleeping with men, leave their husbands, get rid of their evil patriarchal sons, stop shaving, wearing makeup, flattering clothes, fixing their hair (doing anything to attract a man), saying this, doing that, thinking this... and become lesbians for the feminist cause... like it or not!! Watch the BBC documentary Lefties, Angry Wimmin if you don't believe me. It's here on YouTube. You can hear it straight from their mouths and see some reflect on how absurd they acted when they what they were part of now call a Lord of the Flies like fundamentalist cult. Stitch It! X Women please stop feeling harassed by cat-calling! You’re being very rude! Please don’t bring attention to it and stop being a feminist!
