"but Joffrey in the books is still a 13-year-old kid. And there’s kind of a moment there where he knows that he’s dying and he can’t get a breath and he’s kind of looking at Tyrion and at his mother and at the other people in the hall with just terror and appeal in his eyes—you know, “Help me mommy, I’m dying.” And in that moment, I think even Tyrion sees a 13-year-old boy dying before him. So I didn’t want it to be entirely, “Hey-ho, the witch is dead.” I wanted the impact of the death to still strike home on to perhaps more complex feelings on the part of the audience, not necessarily just cheering."

just remember to clean your shit off D: also I wasn’t mad I was just trying to point out the obvious
I relate with this post so hard.
Things that don’t make people a weeaboo:
- Liking anime
- Liking manga
- Being interested in Japanese culture or language
- Enjoying Japanese video games/rpg games
- Wearing clothing items or carrying bags with anime-related pictures on them
- Owning any other merchandise related to the above things
Things that make people a weeaboo:
- Being a complete and total disrespectful asshole who thinks that liking Japan makes them superior to everyone else.
today a customer asked me for a “medium whatever” and then got frustrated with me when i asked him what he meant
this is it
this is the post that 100% accurately describes working with the public
Oh my god, all of my agreement ever.
I just had a funny realization.
My last girlfriend, of almost 10 months, broke up with me over a text.
I don’t know how I didn’t notice that when it happened. I was probably too pissed off to notice. But yeah…that’s a thing. Longest relationship I’ve had, broken up with over a text. Legit.
I know what you’re thinking, and it’s not because they’re homophobes.
No, pretty much every hetrosexual man you have ever met is absolutely, to the pit of his stomach, terrified of hetrosexual rape committed upon women.
Let’s kick things off with a bit of background: Melvin Lerner’s ‘Just World’…
It is too easy to forget how much people influence our lives, our moods, and our perception of the environment, so let’s remind ourselves the three types of people in terms of their outlook:
1. “Everything is horrible!” people.
These people would only notice and talk about the things they see…
Raise your hand if you’ve never heard any of the following lines, in one form or another:
- Let’s be friends
- I think we should see other people.
- It’s not you. It’s me
- I just don’t love you anymore.
If you’ve finished reading this list and your hand is raised, please bring it down to face level. Cup your hand to your cheek. Pull it back three to five inches, and, traveling at an increased velocity, slap yourself firmly on the face. Why? If you haven’t experienced rejection from a breakup, this exercise serves as a simulation of what rejection feels like. Actually, a slap in the face is much more pleasant than rejection.

Rejection Is Physiologically Heart-Breaking
"Rejection" comes from Latin, meaning thrown back. When we are rejected, we feel not only halted, but pushed back in the opposite direction of which we were headed. Now consider this: When rejected, how do we describe the event? We tend to say, "I was rejected." Notice what is going on here. We are using passive voice. This indicates how we feel about the part we play in rejection. We view ourselves as passive, as being the victim of an action, as inactive, as non-participative.
The thing that people always forget about relationships is that love and infatuation aren’t the same thing. Infatuation - seeing no wrong in your partner, worshiping the ground they walk on, turning your world around them — is just part of a long-term relationship.
Eventually, you will become a…
