my classical archaeology professor is mid 50s standard serious professor but when he uses sample years he’ll use like “420 BC” absolutely straight faced and serious and nobody knows if they’re allowed to laugh or not.
Professor: So I’ve noticed a mistake you all make when writing years and I just want to clear this up. When you write a year in BC the “BC” comes after the year, like this
Professor: *writes 420 BC in large letters on the chalkboard*
Full lecture hall: *quiet scattered laughter*
Professor, completely serious: I’m sorry, is there a problem?
Professor: Good. Now, “AD” means “anno domini” or “In the year of our lord” and comes before the year, like this:
Professor: *writes AD 69 on the chalkboard*
justin bieber was the middle school barney the dinosaur
ppl adding on about how justin bieber is actually a terrible person this is about drama between 11 year olds in like 2009. we didn’t know a single thing about the guy. your opinions were solely based on whether you were part of the 90% of teenagers who would cry if justin bieber jumped off a building or you were the 10% who would sit back with popcorn and yell “do a backflip”.
kids these days dont understand projecting your middle school anger due to being an outcast into vitriolic hate of justin bieber
I just make them all say “fuck” instead
I just include a universal translator that translates into language equivalents. Kinda like really good Japanese Dubs
ssfhdhd yeah I already established that the uhh official galactic state religion is cyborg oracle agnosticism or some shit… I doubt the concept of hell is culturally enforced
I have the same dilemma when it comes to using “hell,” which I want to, a lot
writing sci-fi sucks ‘cause on one hand it seems like this character would say “son of a bitch” but then you have to pause and think, do they have dogs in space? Does this character know about dog breeding? Is it insulting to be compared to a dog in space? Is there misogyny in space? Do space people use misogynistic slurs? Does this character say bitch because they’ve absorbed a low level misogyny and it’s just part of the cultural lexicon of their world?
and then you shrug and give them all lasers because life is short and death is imminent
Allison setting up Luther with people she knows, the only common trend is that they are 6'5 or taller.
A fic that involves Luther going on blind dates and each date was found by a different sibling and they vary absolutely wildly based on A) the type of people each sibling knows and B) what they have interpreted as Luther’s taste
Vanya wins because all the others are trying to set him up with the biggest beefiest person they know and then Vanya is just like I only have one friend he’s 5′3 and plays the harp and he’s also broke so he’d definitely be up for a free meal out and Luther is smitten
ever notice how men criticize games like animal crossing and stardew valley on the basis of “the entire game is just doing tasks” without recognizing that “kill bad guy” is also just a task but violent?
”it’s so boring all you do is talk to people and do tasks so you can buy new things” yeah and all you do is press a bunch of buttons to kill people so you can buy new things? perish
my activity page has not known peace since i made this post i have hundreds of insufferable gamers crawling up my pant legs now but luckily i have a secret up my sleeve… i too am a gamer man. im immune to the gamer venom
This has the same energy as that post that’s “Red Dead Redemption is just Barbie’s Horse Adventure with violence”.
It’s all just fetch quests, you just gotta decide if you’re feeling the “bring me 10 bear pelts” or “ hello dear neighbour whom i love dearly if it is not too much trouble may you perhaps grant me a piece of fruit” kind
