It’s nice to be coveted

Since 2008, I have volunteered at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark, and all years I’ve been a part of the group responsible for the signs at and around the Festival. I’m educated within that field, as one of two on the team, so I worked way faster than everyone else, and with better results too.

In 2011 I got in a bit of an altercation with one of the other members of the team, as he blamed me for something that wasn’t my fault.

I was in a difficult period of my live at that point, and the unnecessarily angry criticism hit me way harder than it should have, so when he was promoted to being a lead member of the team from the following year, I refused to rejoin the group.

So, in 2012 I was not a part of the group, and in 2013, I didn’t have the time or the economy to participate, so I wasn’t at the Festival at all that year.

All the years that I have been at the Festival, I was there with my (now) ex-boyfriend, and admittedly, since I broke up with him, my life and self esteem have become more stable, and I am actually looking forward to participating in the Festival without him to be jealous and pissed because I spend time talking with people that I only see a few times a year.

Anyway, I asked the Sign Crew, whether they had room for me, and I was told that they had all the positions filled, but because I knew what I was doing, I could be moved to the front of the waiting list.

Now, the Festival was getting closer, and I really wanted to participate, and I decided that I wasn’t going to wait around, on what, to me, sounded like a “maybe, but don’t count on it,” so I contacted my mother, whom is responsible for another team at the Festival, and got a spot there.

So, Kim, one of the responsible members of the Sign Crew, decides to write me, to let me know that it’s actually quite possible that I can get a spot at the crew anyway, where to, I have to inform him that I’ve found another group to join, and therefore have to pass. He seems understanding and wishes me a good festival and such.

I just now discovered that he has written me again; he’s been talking with the other leaders of the team, and they’ve discussed it a bit, and have decided that they really, really want me on the team, because I know what I’m doing and I’m good at it, and if it’s possible that we can figure something out, so that I can join them anyway.

They are actually, practically, begging for me to join them, and that actually feels surprisingly nice.

My mother is currently in a meeting, but I’ll talk to her later and find out what we will be doing, because honestly, I would prefer to join the Sign Crew, but only if she can do without me, as I don’t want to be a burden.

Sorry, I’m still stuck on that Gordon Ramsay as the Potions Master post.

"We’re going to use fresh, vibrant dragon toenails, locally grown and sustainable."

"You don’t add eye of newt to a room temperature cauldron, you ignorant shit."

"It’s fucking raw!"

This would go great with Bobby Singer, Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher.

"Here, let me look it up in my How to Sweet-Talk Ukrainian Dragons manual. Oh, wait. No one ever wrote one."

This is an important event in history, especially Canadian and feminist history. So I’m going to tell you more about it.
1) The shooter had been rejected from Ecole Polytechnique prior to the shooting. He blamed this on these female students, claiming that they were feminists who ruined his life.
2) In the first classroom he entered, he demanded the men leave before shooting at the women. No man attempted to stop him as they left. Take that as you will. (Later on, several men did get injured trying to stop him in the hallways.)
3) In his suicide letter, he believed that feminists were attempting to be more powerful than men, and were trying to take men’s rights away.4) Feminists were actually blamed by some for the massacre. The line of logic was “if feminists didn’t make women’s rights an issue, Levine wouldn’t have wanted to kill feminists!” Victim blaming at its finest.
5) The mainstream news media often did not publicize the outrage from women’s groups, and often preferred those who took a calm approach. Ironic, that.
6) Despite him literally having a hit list of feminist icons in his final letter, several newscasters questioned whether or not the shooting was a sexist act, some even denying the idea outright.
8) Many memorials for the victims have been created, and rightly so; however, some prominent ones were erected in poor neighbourhoods where many Native women were killed every day in the same time period as the shooting (see: Marker of Change, Vancouver) (see: Missing Women, Vancouver). Basically, white feminism happened. 
The entire event was nothing short of a tragedy, and I recommend that everyone read up on it and the resulting aftermath. It’s… interesting to see how the media tried to turn it into a random act of psychopathy instead of what it was (we know better now, luckily). The reactions (memorials, etc) to the deaths of these 14 White, middle class women as compared to the deaths of 60+ Native, lower class women are also “interesting” to compare. (By interesting, I mean infuriating.)

It’s also an important event because after it happened Canada was like “oh shit better expedite that whole gun control thing” and then did. I feel like this situation is so completely ignored when Americans talk about gun control, like the examples the American left always trot out are like “look at how well gun control works in Europe” and opponents say “well gun culture is completely different here you can’t just take them all away all of the sudden and expect that to work”. But Canada has a lot of guns AND regulates ownership to successfully cut down on gun crime, violence, and accidents. It was a pretty clear line of “this is a problem that requires legislation” and the necessary change was made. People grumbled a lot, but the shift happened.

1 character, 19 drawing styles challenge! This took a long time, but I’m pretty happy with it - I recommend looking at all these artists’ original work if you like any of them.

Love this! And I’m really flattered to see my style represented so nicely!

don’t get me wrong, I’ve loved Batman since I was a tiny child, but I think we all need to come to terms with the fact that he has the personality of very grim yogurt

Captain America was so unrealistic. You honestly expect me to believe they put the flash drive in the right direction on the first try every time.

A 21 year old guy had worn a pair of contact lenses during a barbecue party.(An event or meal at which food is cooked outdoors over an open grill or fire)While barbecuing he stared at the fire charcoals continuously for 2-3 minutes.After a few minutes, he started to scream for help and moved rapidly, jumping up and down.No one in the party knew why he was doing this?Then he admitted into the Hospital, the doctor said he’ll be blind permanently because of the contact lenses that he had worn.Contact lenses are made by plastics, and the heat from the charcoal melted his contact lenses.DO NOT WEAR CONTACT LENSES WHERE OVERHEATING AND FLAMES ARE CONCERNED…. OR WHILE COOKING…!
Spread this around because this sounds terrible as fuck!

This is NOT TRUE, I seriously can’t believe that over 100,000 of you didn’t bother to look this up.
Contact lenses are sterilized by autoclaving up to 121 degrees C.
In most clinics, a dirty contact lens is cleaned and re-sterilized by placing in boiling water.
A layer of tear fluid covers the contact lens when worn on our eyes.
If BBQ heat can melt contact lens, shouldn’t our tears boil first, as the boiling point of water is 100 degree C?
At heat levels that can melt contact lenses, the eye will be cooked and our skin will be cooked much before.
Welders use contact lenses. BBQ heat or any kitchen heat is not greater than during welding.
And perhaps just… don’t stare at an extreme heat source for that long??? Who gives a shit if you’re wearing contact lenses or not? You’re damaging your eyes either way.
