Ebullient Efflorescence

I thought if I cared about one thing I would have to care about everything and I would go stark raving mad.

I wish I could watch America’s Next Top Model without a fucking “BACON! Special sauuuucceee! Chicken!” McDonald’s commercial at every ten minutes. I don’t want to see that shit. Give me the gatorade commercial about sweat over and over again instead. 

I’m too lazy to look up streaming somewhere else other than cwtv.com.

Wolf and Weasel (found on google)

Le Brun’s System on Physiognomy

I saw someone posted some of these and then ruined one of them with a shitty ‘horse face’ joke. 

So heres the entire list of his plates. Including a weasel one I found on google which I found adorable. 

Charles Le Brun drew these plates to explore how humans would look if we had animal characteristics.

…trolling used to be pretty funny and almost entirely harmless. Trolling, despite the modern usage, does not mean “the act of pissing somebody off and laughing about their anger.” It is “the act of pissing somebody off BASED ON SOMETHING COMPLETELY MEANINGLESS and laughing about their MISPLACED anger.” It isn’t considered trolling to leave a comment full of racial epithets and laugh when people “don’t get it.” It is trolling if you leave a comment insisting on the wrong information about something irrelevant – how many runes are on a Stargate, for example (everybody knows its 12) – and wait for the ONE guy that just can’t let the transgression pass. If you start a fake fight with Prof. Stargate, dragging him deeper and deeper until hopefully, finally, even he has to stop and think “wait a minute, this is ridiculous,” that is trolling. That’s the difference: No actual harm is caused, and even the victim can eventually get in on the joke. “Trolling” isn’t referring to hiding behind a fortification and trying to hurt people like the mythical creature. It’s referring to the style of fishing – you drag bait across the bottom hoping to get a rare bite. It’s not ‘bait’ if you’re earnestly spouting your misogynistic beliefs and somebody gets upset. There’s nothing funny about entirely justified anger.

So I saw a commercial for a TV show called Jane the Virgin who obviously is a virgin and her doctor somehow accidentally inseminated her (during her pap I’m guessing?) so now she’s pregnant.

Just WHAT?!

I know! Let’s sue the shit out of that doctor and buy an island somewhere. But no, instead all it’s about is “I’m not ready to be a mother but I’ll do this anyway!” Why is this a tv show? The fuck CW? o.O

i like imagining that the reason zev won’t be in inquisition is that he’s on vacation with the warden in antiva and is trying desperately to keep every source of “tear in the veil”-related news away from them

like tackling people who are about to talk about the situation in orlais or randomly punching couriers 

literally having to use every assassin skill he’s ever learned to keep the warden from having to save the world again

This is an enormous chain and I’m sorry, but I need to say this:

The laws in the Old Testament were set forth by god as the rules the Hebrews needed to follow in order to be righteous, to atone for the sin of Adam and Eve and to be able to get into Heaven. That is also why they were required to make sacrifices, because it was part of the appeasement for Original Sin.

According to Christian theology, when Jesus came from Heaven, it was for the express purpose of sacrificing himself on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven. His sacrifice was supposed to be the ultimate act that would free us from the former laws and regulations and allow us to enter Heaven by acting in his image. That is why he said “it is finished” when he died on the cross. That is why Christians don’t have to circumcise their sons (god’s covenant with Jacob), that is why they don’t have to perform animal sacrifice, or grow out their forelocks, or follow any of the other laws of Leviticus.

When you quote Leviticus as god’s law and say they are rules we must follow because they are what god or Jesus wants us to do, what you are really saying, as a Christian, is that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was invalid. He died in vain because you believe we are still beholden to the old laws. That is what you, a self-professed good Christian, are saying to your god and his son, that their plan for your salvation wasn’t good enough for you.

So maybe actually read the thing before you start quoting it, because the implications of your actions go a lot deeper than you think.

This is a theological point that doesn’t come up often enough.

"It’s hard to kind of find something that was… that had the balance of being not too animal, and yet, not kind of human… And be able to be quite subtle ‘bout it and suggest things. So it was quite hard to do that and quite hard work to do that cuz you find out the way to do it by jumping around and running about." - Alan Cumming on Kurt’s movements
