A Discworld/GoT crossover: in which Sam Vimes basically just arrests everyone and that’s it that’s the show

sybil as the mother of dragons 

havelock vetinari taking the iron throne and then immediately getting up because it’s so uncomfortable and asking for a chair 

i’d watch it 

the dire wolves don’t much care for Angua, all in all
from north of the wall comes cohen the barbarian, but there’s not much to do thanks to vetinari’s quite efficient reign from the throne, so he wanders off again

(Tags from NotBecauseOfVictories)
Unlike the Current Run of Game of Thrones, I would watch this.

*makes grabby hands*

I WANTS IT. PRECIOUS. OH MY GOD.

IT’S ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!

MY IPOD LIIIIIIIIIIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It went through the wash for 30 minutes. It didn’t just fall into a glass of water for five seconds, it was in the wash for a full 30 minutes. I put it in rice for two days, believing there was no way it would recover.

Plugged it into the wall tonight to confirm that.

And it LIVES.

There’s some slight splotches on the screen, like fractals, but all the buttons work, all my music is still on there, it plays fine, the sound quality is fine. I’m gonna charge it and test it out tonight but …

It’s alive. IT’S ALIVE.


I know this is silly but it was the first thing I bought for myself when I got a job, back in high school. It’s been with me almost everywhere ever since, it came cross country with me. And until Sunday night I was always so careful with it. I didn’t want to lose it. 
I’m so happy it’s safe.

Edit: ok, now the screen has gone dark. I can see the text if it’s under a bright overhead light, but that’s it. After consulting the internet I have turned it off and have submerged it in rice once more. Sound is still good, still plays music, the clicker wheel works fine. Let’s just hope the moisture gets sucked out after another day or two in the rice and the screen is bright again.

[I]t is actually more expensive to be poor than not poor. If you can’t afford the first month’s rent and security deposit you need in order to rent an apartment, you may get stuck in an overpriced residential motel. If you don’t have a kitchen or even a refrigerator and microwave, you will find yourself falling back on convenience store food, which—in addition to its nutritional deficits—is also alarmingly overpriced. If you need a loan, as most poor people eventually do, you will end up paying an interest rate many times more than what a more affluent borrower would be charged. To be poor—especially with children to support and care for—is a perpetual high-wire act.

It Is Expensive to Be Poor | The Atlantic  (via america-wakiewakie)

Reblog this forever. I’ll never forget how many of my students in the school I worked in with a 100% free and reduced lunch rate lived in residential motels and how many of them relied on the school to get breakfast and lunch and how often those were their only meals for the day.

Or how my friends who have older cars have to spend so much money repairing them but an older car was all they could afford in the first place.

And how you literally have no safety net because if you already fixed one thing on your car and something else goes a week later, you’ve already spent the little bit of buffer you saved up.

“The reason that the rich were so rich, Vimes reasoned, was because they managed to spend less money.

Take boots, for example. He earned thirty-eight dollars a month plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots cost fifty dollars. But an affordable pair of boots, which were sort of OK for a season or two and then leaked like hell when the cardboard gave out, cost about ten dollars. Those were the kind of boots Vimes always bought, and wore until the soles were so thin that he could tell where he was in Ankh-Morpork on a foggy night by the feel of the cobbles.

But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that’d still be keeping his feet dry in ten years’ time, while the poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet.

This was the Captain Samuel Vimes ‘Boots’ theory of socioeconomic unfairness.”

a few days ago bf told me that a couple years ago when he played counterstrike he would respond to dudes getting angry and aggressive and hostile by saying “a kissaroo from me to you” in a slightly goofy friendly voice sort of like the voice you’d associate with a dog muppet.  he said they would absolutely lose their shit every time, insisting things like “i dont want a kissaroo from you!  only tall blonde girls!”.  they always said kissaroo.  i cant stop thinking about this

You could say that I am dating myself because of that reference, but I say I am dating myself because I am not very attractive to women.

Moarte, Deadpool: Dracula’s Gauntlet

Awwwww, Moarte, what gave you that idea? Plenty of fangirls out here who love you lots! (And historically a proud tradition of female admirers of horror icons. He needn’t be alone in his crypt, is all I’m saying.)

Saw the last Atop the Fourth Wall and loved it, like pretty much every episode until now, as much as I love the King of Worm’s design.Don’t mind the picture, it didn’t come out the way I wanted to, but I guess I won’t do anything better with it. I slightly modified the King’s appearance, because… Because.
Thank you so much for the absence of background thank youuuu

Oooooooo.
