Vice loves Halloween because he dresses up, gets drunk and goes off scaring kids around the city and stealing their candy. Full of sweets and alcohol, he goes to see what Fundip is up to and wants them to match.
M: “Why are you only nice when you’re drunk?” V: “Stoppp..you’re messing up the.. the paint.” M: “Ya know, I do have a costume..” V: “Shut up, you’re gonna be a damn skeleton. Like me.”

joanhello2 replied to your post:So,
When I read this I immediately wanted to shadow you and take notes about your experience so I can use it in a fic about Megamind and Minion setting up their first Evil Lair.

Well…… since you asked, it’s quite the saga.  Read more because long!

Read More

Thank you! The only time I’ve ever seen forging done, it was 19th-century style in a museum. Looking forward to your next installment.

Just filled out my health insurance forms!

yeah!!! fucking around with health insurance forms!!!!

I hate when people complain about “oh health forms are stupid they want my biological sex instead of my gender!!!!” or “they only have male or female!!!”
There’s a reason for that, you dumb fucks, and they’re referring to biological sex
Different health risks are present in different sexes, and whatever gender is in your head does not change the fact that if you were born female, you have a higher risk for certain cancers and osteoporosis, and if you were born male you have a higher risk for heart disease and often a shorter lifespan than a female.
In other words, your biological sex is an important factor in health and health insurance, and your special snowflake status doesn’t change that.

Coulda said it nicer but it’s true; it’s about health.

No. There gets a point where nice doesn’t work. There’s too many stupid ass angsty teens on here that are gonna get themselves seriously hurt or sick because they wanna be a special fucking snowflake. Lemme tell you a thing. Doctors don’t give a flying fuck what you identify as. All they want to know is do you have two X chromosomes or an XY? Because cancer and lupus and certain medicines don’t give a flying fuck what pronouns you use. This is about your fucking LIFE. stop being angsty for TWELVE SECONDS because when you’re in an ambulance or going into cardiac arrest or whatever the situation may be, it’s ESSENTIAL that you get your head out of your ass long enough to tell them your BIOLOGICAL SEX that you were BORN WITH. It literally may save your life.

this is all very violent imo 

It’s important

it’s not but ok lol

hi im one of those doctors you idiots keep using as an excuse to yell at trans people
every single thing you’ve said is incorrect, and you do not know what you are talking about
I may need to know what organs a patient does or does not have, their hormonal status and history of exposure, and even their karyotype. Ideas like “biological sex” can often imply a lot of this. In medicine, that isn’t good enough. We have to be able to catch exceptions, side-effects, sequelae, and anomalies that might affect only one in a million patients. Exceptions to any one or more elements of the “biological sex” paradigm are much, much, much, much more common than that.
You genuinely do not know a patient’s chromosomes until you’ve run an expensive test, and even then, who knows! they could be a mosaic. Whether this information is important, and when, and why, depends. It all completely depends. A gender/sex/whatever marker on a form is not and never will be important. No matter how you cut it, is and always will be a miniscule source of information. Frankly, by disclosing a trans background on this form, the OP has made it more diagnostically useful to a clinician than that form has ever been before - we trans people are statistically very uncommon and tend to encounter distinct hardships and challenges that are highly relevant to our medical needs. Even then, it would still be no substitute for actually interviewing the patient.
So that’s the other thing you House addicts don’t have a clue about. Good doctors do “give a flying fuck” about how the patient identifies, because a patient’s background is absolutely key to their health. Knowing a patient’s basic demographics can help me think about what may be more or less likely in terms of their care needs.
More importantly, it helps me treat my patient with respect. This is both the decent thing to do and an absolute minimum requirement for being able to get damn near anything done. You sneering choads couldn’t cure a side of beef.

Estimates of the portion of the population with actual physical intersex conditions run from 1 in 4,000 (for genital ambiguity visible at birth) to 1 in 2,000 (for all intersex conditions including those that only show up hormonally). That means, assuming an estimated U.S. population of 300 million, there are about 75,000 individuals in this country with genitals that don’t fit the standard gender binary. That form needs a third option.

how come every vampire in vampire stories is a hundred years old tho why cant we get a newbie vampire like

"how long have you been 17"
“about a year and a half actually its kinda trippy”

and it would make the love stories a lot less creepy

Seras Victoria from Hellsing is the character you’re looking for ;D

Jack Fleming, the main character in P. N. Elrod’s Vampire Files series, starts out as a brand new vampire in the first book, completely isolated from others of his kind, and has to learn his powers and limitations by trial and error. He also dies in his late thirties, then ages backward so that he ends up looking like a teenager; when he mentions his military experience, humans don’t believe him.

Super-great comic.

Maybe you recognize a bit of yourself in here?

…some small thoughts on something really big in my life. 

To Patricia Marwell, Addie Perotta, Sharon Waskow, the Scarsdale Public Library, the Queens Public Library, and the New York Public Library: thank you! 

Libraries will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no libraries. This is especially true in the Internet Age. Even if you’re so broke you had to sell your phone, you can still get online on a computer at the library.

In a study of children aged 2-5, parents interrupted their daughters more than their sons, and fathers were more likely to talk simultaneously with their children than mothers were. Jennifer Coates says: “It seems that fathers try to control conversation more than mothers… and both parents try to control conversation more with daughters than with sons. The implicit message to girls is that they are more interruptible and that their right to speak is less than that of boys.”

Girls and boys’ differing understanding of when to talk, when to be quiet, what is polite and so on, has a visible impact on the dynamics of the classroom. Just as men dominate the floor in business meetings, academic conferences and so on, so little boys dominate in the classroom - and little girls let them.

X (via geviladaheel)

It’s not just the girls who let the boys dominate. There was a survey of elementary school teachers some years ago, in which both male and female teachers denied that they were discriminating against the girls in their classes, and said that they’d be happy to have their classes videotaped. Well, then someone analyzed the resulting videos and observed that it was usually boys who were chosen to answer the most challenging questions, the ones that really help students grow, academically. The teachers admitted that they were consciously doing that, but said they didn’t see it as discrimination against girls. They saw it as protection of girls. Protection of their feelings, you know, in case they got a wrong answer in front of everybody. Boys were presumed to be tougher, thus better able to handle the embarrassment. And so, unconsciously, what these teachers taught was that challenge and risk (and, thus, achievement) are for boys, not girls.
