Your fave is problematic: Potion Seller

sturmtruppen:

hero-of-canada:

  • Refuses to sell his strongest potions
  • Has no respect for knights
  • Is a rascal

god I’m so sick and tired of people shitting on Potion Seller and conveniently forgetting that

  • his potions are too strong for you traveler
  • you can’t handle his potions, they’re too strong for you
  • his potions would kill you traveler you can not handle them
  • why should he respect knights when his potions can do anything they can

I mean alright if you don’t like Potion Seller I get it, they’re not for everyone, and hell even I’ll admit that his strongest potions would kill a dragon, let alone a man, but nothing is stopping you from just going elsewhere for your potions, and finding a seller who sells weaker potions.

the funniest thing in twilight is when bella thinks that the guy she has a crush on might be a vampire so she goes home and just googles the word “vampire” it’s ridiculous but also exactly what I would do in that situation

Games with English: insert the word “only” anywhere into the above sentence and consider how the placement changes meaning.

Oh, gosh, people have been posting these with translations into different languages and discussions of why they do or don’t work and it is so cool.  (I mean, assuming you are a rabid word geek like me.)
I thought I’d take the time to compile them into a masterpost.  Lots of text so I put it under a cut. 
(If you wanna do another language drop me an ask and I’ll add it to the post.)

U.S. Mother Gives Away 5-Year-Old Adopted Child From Haiti For Throwing Temper Tantrum




"Having an instant multicultural family was magical for about two weeks,” says Stacey Conner, a 41-year-old American mom from Spokane, Washington.
After she volunteered in an orphanage in Haiti in 2005, Conner and her husband adopted a 5-year-old Haitian boy named “J.”
Conner claims the boy had attachment disorder and began a strict regimen of attachment parenting of constant surveillance in which a child must often ask for food and water. After two months, J threw a tantrum where he unintentionally hit Conner’s nose with the back of his head.
Conner says the 5-year-old’s strike was accidental, but describes it as “a domestic violence situation. Forget love. Right then, I didn’t even like J.”

J was sent to live with another family in the Midwest. Conner’s biological children adjusted seamlessly to life without their adoptive brother. But other people were puzzled. Neighbors who had seen J riding his bike asked, “Where’s your son?” When Conner answered truthfully, “I’d get the most horrified stares, so I’d keep walking. And I didn’t tell many out-of-town friends or extended family for months.”

Despite such events, the Conners were approved by local social workers to become a foster family, and in October 2013 received a 3-month-old boy as their first placement.

white people will let their white kids karate chop them in the throat and call them names in public, but a black child becomes naturally upset after you treat the kid like a grown criminal/animal and you just give them away. go it. sounds reasonable.

"i’d get the most horrified stares"geewonder why

It’s really great that this woman is able to adopt not one but TWO children and I can’t because my state doesn’t recognize same-sex marriage and won’t adopt to “single” parents.

"i’d get the most horrified stares"
gee
wonder why
