no seriously let’s lay this all out

  • Sansa starts the series at eleven years old and is currently thirteen
  • She is currently the successor to Winterfell, the Lady of Casterly Rock, in line for Riverrun and near to becoming the ruler of the Eyrie
  • She managed to trick her…

What the actual fuck?

Self diagnosis is not a proper thing, guys. You can’t just assume you have an actual mental disorder (such as DID) because you are lonely and your blatant ignorance has alienated all of your friends.

There…

Thanks, and hallo back! Lovely to meet you folk; we were already following you on here somehow. :)

There are people who have…

Additionally, even when ‘fad’ self-diagnosis becomes widespread, it is still ultimately a net long-term benefit for the field of psychiatric care. Fads call attention to things which previously were not given much notice or priority. People gather to discuss them, creating forum spaces which build a potential base for later professional survey. More recognized prevalence of a condition leads to more research into causes, treatment options, therapies, and accessibility. Media picks up on it. Celebrities talk about conditions they’ve been keeping secret for years. Respected people release interviews and books talking about their experiences. Neurotypical people discover more ways they can be striving to treat neuro-atypical people like real human beings and not like mental disease vectors. 

The short-term negatives are usually mutual cause-and-effect with the very things that spark initial ‘fad’ self-diagnosis: media representation by popular fiction characters, inaccurate dramatizations which vilify or fetishize a condition like in police procedural shows, and celebrities openly announcing their own real diagnoses. Media is certainly capable of reinforcing negative and inaccurate portrayals of people with many different psychiatric conditions, but let’s face history: as long as there has been such a thing as psychiatry, there has also been intense ableism in response to anybody who appears to be anything other than neurotypical. Media is ALREADY starting from a basis of extremely unhelpful portrayals, so while media can worsen public attitudes and proliferate ignorance, it also has a relatively high chance in most cases of increasing overall knowledge and awareness of a condition.

To put it another way, it’s really hard to make people trust a person with ASPD less. It’s really hard to make people understand OCD and autism and ADHD less. When media and social spaces online are inundated with neural conditions, chronic illnesses, invisible disabilities, it gradually encourages people to recognize that these conditions are collectively REALLY common and widespread throughout any given population. When it hits home that one’s own family and friends and partners and children could be quietly living with such a dramatically different mental life, sometimes it improves the quality of compassion those people offer to each other. 

So… yeah. On an individual, person-by-person basis, self-diagnosis has the potential to be damaging for the one who does it, and insulting and hurtful to people who have gotten it verified clinically. It’s not great. But in a lot of ways, the insults and hazards currently endured are massively paving the way for everybody who can derive benefit from improved diagnostic criteria and psychiatric care. These are growing pains for the entire human species.

Was anyone else a little bit disappointed that the kick ass Lady Counsel Member turned out to be Natasha? Still love Natasha, but for a few glorious seconds, it was awesome to see an older woman come out of nowhere to kick ass. 

Councilwoman Hawley

"The council moves to shove my Nine West shoe up your ass."

YESSSSS. Walking out of the theatre with our fiance, we remarked that while we’d probably deconstruct the film to death the next time we see it, our only immediate objection or annoyance with it on first viewing was that the badass council lady wasn’t ACTUALLY a badass council lady.

We’re reblogging this for Alii, because it seems like the sort of thing they might enjoy looking at. 

Hihi, Alii! We hope you enjoy this spherical raccoon babby. :]

If they show sports events at bars why don’t they show tv shows?

someone should get to making a fandom bar.

no but can you imagine? fandom themed drinks, tv show maraton nights, discount to cosplayers, and special…

Subtitles, friend. Subtitles. They should already be activated for people who wouldn’t be able to hear the show, regardless how noisy the bar is.

For people with visual impairments who depend on sound to enjoy the show, the bar can always go with the method in use by many European disco houses: wireless headphones issued at the door for people who want to hear a specific show. You can set up the headphones to tune wirelessly to different ‘channels’ of broadcast, so that if there are five or six shows playing on separate television screens (or multiple episodes of the same show, for the sake of people who are at different stages of watching the show in order), the wearer can simply tune to the appropriate audio channel. Worst-case scenario is that the audio and image are a little de-synchronized, and obviously some measures will need to be taken to maintain sanitation of headphones.

The facility itself could have themed rooms with decor suited to specific shows or show genres. There could be “spoiler-intensive” rooms which air very recent or plot-critical episodes of things, in isolation from the rest of the facility. There could even be ‘dry rooms’ for underage friends of bar patrons (in places where underage people are allowed entry to drinking establishments in the first place) and designated drivers and people who just want to party or chillax with only other people who happen not to be drunk. Dance music of several genres would be available audio channels, of course. Free wifi, laptop charging outlets, and similar accommodations are also an obvious must, considering the target demographic(s). Pinball machines would also be spiffy, or air hockey, or any classic arcade games.

A green-yellow-red nametag system could be employed to allow socially anxious, introverted, and autistic people (in particular, although everybody benefits from such a system) to visually indicate their willingness to interact directly with others or to be approached by others. The nametag might also have a spot to write down the most recent episode you’ve seen of the show you’re watching and whether or not you are averse to spoilers, so that other people can very easily avoid spoiling you with too-recent show information.

…okay, seriously, why is this not a thing? We’re talking genuinely plausible stuff, here, with a viable market of people who will all be of legal drinking age in their respective countries within the next five to seven years (in most cases). We’re talking about a patron market which passes down through entire generations, since a lot of shows have a huge trans-generational cult following.

Sansa Stark meme: 1/10 scenes

“Sansa!” The boyish shout rang across the yard; Joffrey had seen her. “Sansa, here!”

He calls me as if he were calling a dog, she thought.

what I really love about this scene is that Sansa is trying to emotionally manipulate Joffrey into going to the most dangerous area of the fight. Don’t tell me she’s just a passive player, she picks her battles where she can and this is her shining moment of defiance.

ok so this just hit me

humidifiers fill the air with water molecules from a source of water.image

so what if someone filled a humidifier with holy water. would this essentially cleanse a room of all evil?

Either demons aren’t real, or demons are afraid because humans keep coming up with $40 solutions to demon problems.

We actually know somebody offline who humidifies her house with holy water, rose water, and other religion-significant water-based substances. The place always smells a little like Febreeze, as a result.

Anonymous asked: is the Welsh for microwave really "popty ping"?

prism-rainsong:

gazasaurus-rex:

queerly-it-is:

hahaha, sadly no it’s not, that’s a kind of urban myth tbh, I’ve never known anyone who used it except as a joke. the welsh for microwave is actually “meicrodon”, which I always liked because it sounds like a teeny tiny mafia boss

honestly a lot of things in our language are hilarious to the point of not sounding real at all, like “wnco mwnco” which means “him over there” and has the added advantage of making it sound like you’re doing a monkey impression as you point at the person you’re indicating (use with caution)

the welsh for ladybird (ladybug, whichever) is “buwch goch gota” which means “little red cow”

"ironing board" in welsh is "bord smwddio” pronounced as ‘board smoothio’ and makes you sound like a drunk casting a spell from harry potter

instead of “over the top” we have “dros ben llestri” which actually means “over the crockery”. my nan used to say ‘tickery tockery over the crockery’ and that was when you knew she’d really had enough

"good god" is, I shit you not, "jiw jiw"

you can describe a place as being “mor ddu a bol buwch”, meaning “as dark as a cow’s stomach”

instead of “don’t cry over spilled milk” we have “paid codi pais ar ol piso” which actually means “don’t lift your petticoat after pissing”

one of my all time favourites: “Mae hi’n bwrw hen wragedd a ffyn”, meaning “it’s raining old ladies and sticks” (there might’ve been a shortage of cats and dogs idk)

and there’s a ton of smaller stuff, like “taxi” becomes “taccsi” because there’s no x in our alphabet. there’s also no k, v or z, so “kilogram” becomes “cilogram” and “volt” becomes “folt”, and you’re only allowed j for english words we snatched up (Japan becomes Siapan for technical linguistic reasons I’m not clever enough to explain)

also “noodles” are “nwdls” (sometimes I think we just do things to fuck with the English)

I could go on and on

This is why in proud to be Welsh. Our language is bloody amazing.

Now I want to hear someone actually speak Welsh again… the problem is I can’t understand it. Not because of the whole foreign language thing (though that IS an issue) … but because like some other accents, I have difficlty even catching/hearing the different syllables. I have this issue with a a lot of “strong” accents, even English-with-an accent due to my hearing loss. So where a word might have 5 syllables, I’ll only catch two, and the rest all blend into this word blob of incomprehensible “What???”

India-Indian + accents, most spoken German, Finnish, Welsh, (likely Gaelic too?), “Mexican” and Spanish, Russian, … and others.

I can even loose some words in Britain’s accents - Cockney, or very fast spoken stuff. Australian is the same way - mostly caught but occasionally fast or heavily accented and it slips.

WHICH SUCKS BECAUSE I ADORE ACCENTS. Esp. British/UK & Aussie, but the British is due to old associations..

This is just a reminder to anybody listening that Welsh is gorgeous and fun and slightly the wild-haired mad scientist of languages.
