"Not sure if I am an evil genius, or just someone who watches too much TV"

I am a Texas college student (studying Management of Information Systems), and I am a Tech enthusiast, computer geek and sci-fi fan.

Full Description

I queue most posts but will do a post dump about once every few weeks.

and since this seems to be the main question you guys ask I am 5'6" tall, so ask me other things (funner things) also before you ask I am taken.

How many times am I allowed to reblog this before it gets weird?

Fun facts: Tolkien constructed this scene because he came out of Macbeth thinking that Shakespeare had missed a golden opportunity with the ”Be bloody, bold, and resolute; laugh to scorn the power of man, for none of woman born shall harm Macbeth” prophecy

Being letdown by Macbeth is apparently a significant factor in Tolkien’s writing because the Ent/Huorn attack on Isengard was the result of his disappointment that the whole “til Birnam Wood come to Dunsinane” thing was just some dudes holding sticks and not actual ambulatory trees.

so he basically took his favorite shakespeare headcanons and put them into his AU fic

This revelation just knocked me over.

LET ME TELL YOU A THING ABOUT JOHN RONALD REUEL TOLKIEN. BACK THE FUCK UP SIT THE FUCK DOWN YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT ANYTHING YOU’RE FUCKING JON SNOW HERE. LET ME TELL U A THING

JONNY T WAS LITERALLY THE BIGGEST FANBOY TO EVER WALK THE EARTH. LITERALLY THIS FUCKIN NERD WENT INTO WORLD WAR ONE AND WROTE NORSEFIC EDDA FANFIC IN THE TRENCHES AND SENT IT TO ALL HIS FRIENDS WHO WERE PRESUMABLY LIKE “JOHN WHAT THE FUCK”

BUT IT DOESN’T END THERE

HIS WIFE? MADE HER AND HIMSELF INTO SELF-INSERT OCS IN SAID FIC. ALSO MADE HIMSELF A TOTAL TYR SELF INSERT CHARACTER. ALL VERY DRAMATIC. KEPT WRITING THIS FIC UNTIL IT WAS HUGE. AFTER HE DIED HIS SON PUBLISHED IT AND CALLED IT THE SILMARILLION. JRR YOU FUCKIN NERD

WAIT I’M NOT FUCKING DONE YET. TREEBEARD? BASED THE WAY HE TALKED OF HIS OLD FRIEND JACK WHO YOU ALL MIGHT KNOW AS CS LEWIS. THAT’S RIGHT. THAT NARNIA MOTHERFUCKER. WROTE HIM INTO LORD OF THE RINGS AKA THE SEQUEL TO THE SEQUEL OF HIS ORIGINAL FANFIC MASTERPIECE. CS LEWIS FUCKING HATED LORD OF THE RINGS. TOLKIEN FUCKING HATED NARNIA. BASICALLY THEY STARTED THE OXFORD PROFESSOR LIVEJOURNAL CLUB AND THEY FLAMED EACH OTHER’S SHIT RELENTLESSLY YET REMAINED BFFS

SHELOB? FUCKING TARANTULA BIT J-TIDDY ON THE FOOT WHEN HE WAS LIKE 3. WROTE IT INTO LORD OF THE RINGS.

HIS AUNT’S HOUSE? NAMED BAG END. YEAH YOU GUESSED IT WROTE IT INTO LORD OF THE RINGS

THIS FUCKING DORKUS SUPREME MADE UP HIS OWN LANGUAGE. WAIT NO IM WRONG. HE MADE UP LIKE 80 LANGUAGES AND DIALECTS AND ALPHABETS AND SHIT 

BEST PART OF ALL?? HIS OWN LAST NAME, TOLKIEN, WAS DERIVED FROM THE GERMAN “TOLKHUN” MEANING “FOOLHARDY”. DOES THAT RING A BELL TO ANYONE FAMILIAR TO LORD OF THE RINGS??? BECAUSE YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT PEREGRIN “PIPPIN” TOOK’S LIKE FUCKING CATCHPHRASE WAS “FOOL OF A TOOK”. TOLKIEN FIC’D HIS OWN FAMILIAL LINGUISTIC HISTORY INTO HIS WORK WHAT A DWEEB

IN 2008 HE RANKED 6TH ON A LIST OF THE TOP 50 BRITISH WRITERS SINCE 1945. HE WAS A PROFESSOR OF LANGUAGES AND OTHER IMPORTANT STUFFY SHIT AT OXFORD

AND JRR TOLKIEN WAS THE BIGGEST DWEEB EVER TO LIVE

THE END

^rotfl and reblogging again for that comment.

No, you can’t deny women their basic rights and pretend it’s about your ‘religious freedom.’ If you don’t like birth control, don’t use it. Religious freedom doesn’t mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs.

oh FUCK OFF!!!!! i would gladly pay for both the dinners if it meant i get equal pay, and domestic violence rates decrease, and rape prevalence decreases, and im not catcalled on the fucking street.
of fucking course i like free food. but thats as a person, not a woman.
im not even gonna start about the second picture. there so much wrong with it

I’ll start with it.
Firstly, every feminist I’ve spoken to is opposed to the tradition of men paying for dinner, since one of the bases of feminism is opposition to traditional gender roles, both for men and women. Many of my female friends insist on splitting bills 50:50 (unless they’re taking their partner out for a treat or vice versa, obviously).
Secondly, it’s wildly inaccurate (not to mention cisnormative) to act as though men can carry 40 times the amount that women can, and if a woman could only carry 2lbs (aside from the fact that she’d probably not be a woman but actually a small child), I really don’t think she’d have gone into a career that requires physical labour.
Thirdly, we live in an increasingly intellectual society where physical labour is increasingly carried out by machinery, and the wage gap affects people in careers where they are doing exactly as much work as their male counterparts.

I’d also like to acknowledge that plenty of feminists (female and male and non-binary alike) belong to the queer community, and do not date/do not exclusively date members of the opposite sex. It’s wildly inaccurate to say that all feminists support chivalry, a) because most don’t and b) because there are plenty of feminists (and women in general) who gain no benefit from it whatsoever on account of not commonly dating men.

It would appear the person who attempted to draw this was trying to depict construction workers in the second panel. I’m going to go out on a limb and guess they have never actually done any job requiring physical labor before, or else they would know that a lot of those jobs have a lifting requirement to get hired on that you must meet regardless of gender. 
I work at a warehouse and I am required to lift 75 pounds along with my male counterparts. Still the majority of employees on my shift are female. In fact, I would say both men and women are pretty equally represented in management. 
I’ve been put in a lot more physical jobs within the warehouse over my male counterparts because I’ve proven that I can do the job reliably when others couldn’t be. Most of the time, I don’t even need to be asked. (It’s a warehouse that sells musical equipment and I pretty much spent my Saturday last weekend lifting and moving huge speaker cabinets. No, they are not light.)
A friend of mine who works there started at the same time as me and had transferred into what is probably the most physically intensive department in the warehouse. She is the only girl in that department. She is also more in shape than and can lift more than almost all of the guys there. 
Oh, little side note about my friend. When she first transferred over there, some of the guys would purposefully give her the hardest to maneuver rabbit jacks in the warehouse. (a piece of power equipment that you have to use your upper body to steer. There’s no power steering and some of them you really have to lean all of your body weight into). They did this specifically because she was a girl and I guess they wanted to show that she wasn’t as as good at it as them … or something. (One of the guys there told me this when helping out in my department one day. Why he chose to divulge this information is beyond me.) So the fact that she can not only keep up with, but actually run circles around those guys is pretty awesome. 
Also, here’s a little pro tip: If you specifically give women harder equipment to work with and enlist them in doing the heaviest lifting all the time to show they’re weaker, that’s called confirmation bias and you’re not actually proving anything. (I mean, other than the fact that you’re a giant man-baby who probably isn’t very good at his job to begin with.)
Tl;dr version: That second panel is sexist in a couple of different ways and women absolutely deserve equal pay. You can stop paying for my meals when I make the same amount as you for doing the same job.

So in case anyone comes across a picture of Mark Sheppard’s car that shows his license plate, please don’t reblog. He was very upset that his privacy was violated in this manner and as SPN fans we should respect that.

Actually glasses are symmetrical and humans are drawn to symmetrical things and that’s why certain shapes or types of plants, etc, are more attractive to the human eye. Glasses, especially sunglasses, even out the face and make it appear more symmetrical.

And that is science friends
