"PALESTINIAN GIRL, YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD"

"When someone enrols in the medicine school that one of the longest schooling required profession, by the time they finish school they will be around 30-or at least on their late 20s. But not for this girl; Eqbal Asa’d is a Palestinian Muslim woman that started the Medicine school when she was just 14 years old, ‘myhijab.info’ reports. Asa’d got her Bachelor degree in Medicine with Honors and was set by the Guinness World Records as the youngest doctor in the World, according to the report. She has been signed to go to Ohio, U.S to continue her education even further and become a Pediatrician."  - Source

YOU GUYS SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD. SHE IS A FEMALE, A MUSLIM AND A MINORITY. AND SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD. 

WHY ARE WE NOT HEARING MORE ABOUT HER?

you know why.

What if there’s a Decepticon Janitorial Division that are also inconveniently called the DJD and every so often their assignment list get’s mixed up with the Decepticon Justice Devisions and it all ends with the Janitors attempting torture murder and the Justice Division trying to figure out how to get rust stain out of a wall.

 Some of you are reblogging because you think its funny that programmers would talk to ducks. I’m reblogging because I think its funny picturing a programmer explaining their code, realizing what they did when they explain the bad code, then grabbing the strangling the duck while yelling “WHY WAS THE FIX THAT SIMPLE!? AM I GOING BLIND!”

i’m reblogging this because i’ve done this at least twice

This is what my husband and I purchased at the grocery store the other day.

We don’t have kids.

We are adults. We pay bills.
And drink water from a whale.

by the way did I ever tell y’all about the time I got a blank message from nobody, sent on new year’s eve in 1969, when the internet didn’t exist?
because that happened

What the fuck

Time travel.

Or maybe its from 2069, when we’ve developed the technology to send data to the past. You sent yourself a blank message as a test but as the email address you used to send it doesnt exist yet, it came up as no sender

I… what?

OKAY KIDS, LET’S LEARN ABOUT THE UNIX EPOCH
So back in the early days of computers, when we were trying to build clocks to keep all our computers in sync, we tried a bunch of different ways to synchronize them in ways that both normal people could use and programmers could utilize.
We just tried saying “The current time is THIS date” and just storing that date as some text, but while that was easy for humans, it was a bunch of different numbers that worked together in funny ways and computers don’t play nice with a bunch of random, arbitrary rules.
Not much worked, until we realized that we needed a BASELINE to compare against, and a way to represent the current time that covers everybody. So we came up with Unix time, because Unix was the style at the time. Essentially, Unix time represents any given time by saying “How many seconds ago was 12:00 AM on January 1, 1970 in Iceland somewhere?”. Recent enough to keep the numbers relatively small, far enough that nothing computer-y would fall before it, and consistent enough that there’d be no discrepancy based on where you are.
So what happens when you see the date “December 31, 1969” on a buggy message like this is that the computer received a bunch of zeroes by mistake and went “Oh, this must be a message!” Then when it tried to interpret it, it got to the date, found a zero, and said “Zero seconds since the Unix Epoch? I’ll round down - this was sent at the last second of New Year’s Eve, 1969! They’ll be so happy to finally get their blank message.”
And then the computer traipsed off on its merry way, because computers are fucking ridiculous.

I’m realising that when it comes to fanfic, my sexual squicks (which are pretty few in number to begin with) aren’t nearly as strong as my emotional squicks.

I’ve occasionally heard other people discuss having emotional kinks/squicks, but usually more the former than the latter. Basically, what…

Extreme yes to the second hand embarrassment. This even happens with TV shows (there is one episode of SG-1 I refuse to re-watch because I was cringing the whole time) everyone has that something that they just can’t deal with and there’s nothing wrong with that.

I can’t count the number of times I’ve had to stop reading something because my enjoyment of the story is dropping with each sentence. I tend to find it happens more with romantic fanfiction(probably because that’s the bulk of fanfic out there XD)  I hate it when a character is overly passive or emotional, as in crying all the time and for no goddamn reason, especially in sex scenes. I didn’t even know it bothered me until I read a story where the author was trying to play it off as ‘romantic’ but I was left with this icky feeling afterwards. I hate to say it but(to me at least) it felt like it had very ‘rapey’ undertones. Now the second I see it happen I Nope the heck out of there to save myself any discomfort. It could be the best story in the world but I just don’t want to deal with it.

I’d say the stories that hit all my ‘Fuck Yeah!’ are focused around gen/friendship/team stories. If there is a sprinkling of romance later on then even better! Because I enjoy relationships that have a solid base of friendship to build off of.

Characters honestly and sincerely looking out for one another. Awesome.

Maternal or paternal relationships between non-blood related character. Yes please!

Physically comforting(hugging, caresses, etc) one another without it having to lead to sexy times because it’s platonic. Come over here because you’ve just earned yourself a fist bump!

I love friendship stuff, as well, and those are some awesome examples.

As for the squicks, I think you bring up an interesting point:  the type of setup that for whatever reason feels coercive even if it’s not, in the context of the story.  I can think of a few times where a scene left me deeply uncomfortable in that way.  In the cases I’m thinking of, I don’t think that the author had done anything wrong, but it just pushed a button for me.  So I know what you mean!

Agreed. I can and do read non-con/dub-con. But it’s always when the Author is well aware that what they’re writing is wrong. Appropriate warnings are posted and they don’t try to glamorize it. I doubt many Writers start out with the intent to write something questionable, but whether because of writing style, choice of words or characterization(or a mystical convergence of the three) is just sort of… happens? I think it’s an unfortunate trap that younger, less experienced writers unknowingly fall into.

Seconding all the of the above. I get extreme second hand embarrassment from stuff that most of my friends feel okay or even funny, which makes movie nights very uncomfortable for me when they have a ‘comedic’ movie on the roster. And I think I can guess which is the episode of SG-1 in question.

I’m on similar terms with too much fluff sometimes. I’m all for cavity inducing sweetness and fuzzy feelings, but there were stories where it was so unbelievably sugary that it felt forced and fake. It makes warning bells go off in my head that if we scraped off the sugar coating, we would find abuse, rape or something similarly horrifying underneath.

Another thing that makes me go nope is when clearly wrong stuff like non-con, dub-con or abuse is represented as a normal or even positive thing. I’m not much of a writer, but there was a younger girl who asked my opinion of her OC and story. TFP Starscream paired up with an extremely submissive human OC. Rapey not-so-undertones, heavy on the abuse, an underage female OC so slavishly submissive and clingy that I felt like she couldn’t possibly be mentally healthy (Stockholm syndrome, at the very least), all dosed with a generous serving of purple prose.

I’ve read quite a few horrifyingly bad things in my life, but that was one of the worst.

For a positive, I love family and friendship stuff. Balanced, loving partners just being together, parent with their child, friends just being friends, platonic relationships - all the things teamistress had said. Sex is  fun and all, but there’s so much of it all over the fandoms that it can become boring. Shame I’ve come across so few well written, middle- to long-length stories that had these and without sex every other chapter after the main couple had hooked up. :( My kingdom for slice-of-life stuff!

TFU bugged out today when we were playing Crisis. After we destroyed the second shield before the boss zone, the terrorcons didn’t stop spawning for  half an hour. It was my first time playing Conduit, so I was a tad concerned at the beginning, but the end result?

3 kills, 800+ assists, 9k energon and 30k xp. Because of Conduit’s aoe heal, I got assist after everyone and ended up with the highest score.

That’s the best possible way to start with a new bot.
