Is there anything a natural 20 can’t do?
This is a poster idea I developed to show off the amazingness of tabletop rpgs.
Let’s play a game!
Stand where you are, look around, and list whatever liquidy thing is closest to you. This is now your fanfic lube.
Actual lube. WINNING. (Possibly TMI?? OOPS)
Um. Yogurt. Oh dear.
Ice water. Um. Brrrr? (Thank goodness this didn’t come through my dash two nights ago or it would have been the dog’s flea medication.)
Craft Beer, IPA to be exact
How Etsy Changed the Rules and What It Means for Indie Designers →
As someone who is directly involved in the maker movement, I’m somewhat embarrassed to say I didn’t pay much attention when Etsy changed its policies last fall. For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, CEO Chad Dickerson announced that Etsy sellers could use outside manufacturers to produce their designs. In other words, items sold on Etsy no longer had to be handmade.
Aside from the issue that independent designers are now competing with full-scale production operations, there is the issue of sheer volume — Etsy now has over 1 million shops. When a seller is competing in a sea of 999,999 other shops, the odds aren’t good.
Because Etsy’s policy changes happened at the maker’s expense, many of the people who were once making a living off of their shops are now seeing a fraction of the sales. The difference between Etsy, and let’s say, Wal-Mart just got a whole lot smaller. At the core, Etsy changed its mission. No longer is it a website for makers of one-of-a-kind, original goods. Instead, it has become yet another website for the mass-produced and cheaply made goods that satisfy our insatiable culture of mindless consumption.
"So, Governor Nixon says that it is hard to tell among protesters at night who was there to help and who was there to hurt. Given that the unarmed teen was killed by a police officer during the day, and given that the response of the governor was to suspend the First Amendment rights of protesters in the nighttime hours because of the difficulty of telling which ones of them are there to help and which ones to hurt, has there been any discussion about suspending the rights of police officers to carry weapons during the day? Because it is difficult to tell which of them are there to help, and which of them are there to hurt."
you know that scene in ghostbusters where dana opens her fridge and it’s a portal to hell?
Wait. When I see that I’m thinking that those are too different cans & you can either be a gamer or a bro but you can’t be both. If that were the case, I’d be ok with that… except I am allergic to the sweetner they use in those. That means bros aren’t real gamers.
Whenever I see ur art u get really angry because every single time without fail I think it's a picture and you are so wonderful and amazing and ur art is wonderful and amazing and FUKC ITS NOTA PICTURE IM SO ANGRY
The next time you feel yourself getting angry, add a dab of lavender to your milk. Leave town with an orange, and pretend you’re laughing at it.
I love Euclase forever, and not just for her art.
Elizabeth of Poland
Queen Consort of Hungary and Regent of Poland.
Born 1305 – Died 1380
Claim to Fame: a fiery woman whose power came to a catastrophic end.
Elizabeth, a Polish royal, was married in her teens to Charles I of Hungary, and bore him five sons (pictured above) and possibly two daughters.
While at court in Hungary, Elizabeth introduced perfume to Europe.
After her husbands death, Elizabeth used her influence to arrange two prestigious marriages for her son Louis, and her family connections made Louis monarch over both Poland and Hungary, though she held much of the power.
In 1344 Elizabeth bribed Pope Clement VI to have her son Andrew crowned King of Naples along with his wife Joanna I of Naples. This decision was so unpopular that Andrew was soon assassinated.
Louis was absent from Poland from 1370-1375, leaving Elizabeth as regent. Her domineering nature clashed with disaffected Polish subjects at court, resulting in the murder 160 of her Hungarian bodyguards and Elizabeth fleeing for her life in 1375. Louis undermined his mother by siding with the rebels to strengthen his own power.
Following her harrowing regency, Elizabeth spent her final years in a monastery.
"14-year-old Parkview High School Freshman, Caleb Christian was concerned about the number of incidents of police abuse in the news. Still, he knew there were many good police officers in various communities, but had no way of figuring out which communities were highly rated and which were not.
So, together with his two older sisters: Parkview High School senior Ima Christian, and Gwinnett School of Math, Science, and Technology sophomore, Asha Christian, they founded a mobile app development company– Pinetart Inc., under which they created a mobile app called Five-O.
Five-O, allows citizens to enter the details of every interaction with a police officer. It also allows them to rate that officer in terms of courtesy and professionalism and provides the ability to enter a short description of what transpired. These details are captured for every county in the United States. Citizen race and age information data is also captured.
Additionally, Five-O allows citizens to store the details of each encounter with law enforcement; this provides convenient access to critical information needed for legal action or commendation.”
