brother-mouse reblogged your post how-much-farther-to-go asked:Do y… and added:

Jesus fucking christ, It’s a fantasy novel; key word FANTASY y’all need to calm the fuck down. I try to ignore this BS as much as I can but this post is pissing me off. Allow me to clarify; I have yet to read the books and I have never watched Game of Thrones. What l have seen are gifs and production stills of the show. It seems interesting and one day I shall read the books or watch the damn show. What I do know is that people need to stop pushing this whole “Oh my god everything is fucking racist because a PoC isn’t on the cover or the protagonist” seriously there are a million more important things in the world than some “vicious cycle of whiteness in publishing, authors, etc.” and even then so what if GRRM is misinformed about the mongols? He’s not a historian and one only needs to do some research of their own to find the truth. The Dothraki are a Proud Warrior Race that are inspired by the mongols. THEY ARE NOT MONGOLS. They are a FICTIONAL people in a FICTIONAL world. 

Hey, you know what’s funny here?

I’m an avid fan of the books AND the show. I have read every book, including the novellas, and watched every single episode of the show.

These books are fantasy, but I still live in the real world, where a friend of mine who is also a fan, a friend who has a college degree and is no youngster (and neither am I), told me point blank that the misogyny in GoT/ASOIAF is entirely due to “Things Were Just Like That Back Then”.

I live in the real world, where someone who hasn’t read the books OR seen the show thinks AUTOMATICALLY that I just need to shut up about it and stop complaining, despite having zero frame of reference for what I’m even criticizing.

This is exactly what N. K. Jemisin is talking about in the article “Confirmation Bias, Epic Fantasy, and You”. You haven’t read or seen it, but you have already decided that it is beyond criticism, or that fiction in general cannot be criticized. Quick, someone call Harvard and tell them They’re Doing It Wrong.

I live in the real world, where my race being horrifically misrepresented in a degrading and racist way in a work that I enjoy is something I am told to shut up about by someone who knows nothing, Jon Snow.

Please reblog if you know anyone who might take party drugs.

Yo some more helpful tips from another EMT!

1) Its illegal for an EMT to report certain personal information to other non-medical professionals. This includes telling friends your address, whether or not you are HIV positive, and telling the cops about drug use. Thats right, EMTs and paramedics can’t tell the police if you took molly or even if you did illegal activity that’s dangerous to others, like drunk driving. We honestly don’t care if you shot up heroin - we just want to make sure you’re ok. 

2) Do some research on the drugs you’re interested in. There are a lot of websites that have extensive information on drugs, like Erowid, which not only tells you the effects (positive and negative) of the drug, but also the duration and the dose from threshold to heavy. 

3) Be careful with some drugs, like MDMA (ecstasy/molly), which is commonly found in a pressed pill form and can be mixed with a lot of other materials. If you’re thinking about taking molly at a party or rave, I suggest getting it from your (hopefully trusted) dealer beforehand. That way you’re getting it from a trusted source and can also check to see if that particular pill is on Ecstasy Data.

And LSD, while not a usual party drug, can sometimes actually be another similar hallucinogen, like the NBOMe series, which are active to the microgram like acid but is 4x more powerful on blotter paper, and taking this much will cause a bad trip. Acid has a slight metallic taste, or no taste at all, while NBOMe is very bitter. 

4) Many drugs (like stimulants, MDMA, and LSD on occasion) can cause hyperthermia, which is super dangerous if you’re in a place like a rave, surrounded by other hot bodies and dancing for hours without taking a drink. Remember to break for water if this is your situation to avoid this, and if you start to feel feverish and under the weather, cool down immediately. 

Be safe and enjoy!

— warning: this about the EMT is true for the US but I have NO IDEA how the legal situation is in other countries tell your friends! do research! listen to your body.

The World’s First Internet Special-Characters Poem

The following poem appeared in the May/June 1990 issue of Infocus magazine and has since been floating around the Internet. The original authors were Fred Bremmer and Steve Kroese of Calvin College & Seminary of Grand Rapids, Michigan.

How to read it?

Waka waka bang splat tick tick hash,
Caret quote back-tick dollar dollar dash,
Bang splat equal at dollar under-score,
Percent splat waka waka tilde number four,
Ampersand bracket bracket dot dot slash,
Vertical-bar curly-bracket comma comma CRASH.

That movie was pretty intense for two 95-year-olds trying to kill each other.
