No, because good stems from the Old English ‘god’
This is offensive to atheists and those with polytheist beliefs. As such, it’s as offensive as b*d.
Therefore, in place of g**d and b*d, you should use ‘progressive’ and ‘problematic’ respectively. k thx.
excuse me, the word pro*****ive is problematic to those who cannot progress, and is an ableist slur. please arrange to have this fixed immediately.
please stop using the word slur as it reminds me i do not have a slurpee
the word slurpee reminds me of cold things and i have a phobia of the cold wow screw you matt
you frost giant hating racist bitch
Giant is incredible offensive to really tall people, you heightist shitlord!
Exuse me could we stop using the word offensive it is very triggering to those of us who have been or are currently offended by something.

"Villains" soundtrip for work.
Back in prehistoric times it was just a free for all. God was putting antlers on everything and made 7 foot tall gophers with wings, it was a mess.
Look at this poor, impractical bastard.
The prehistoric era was God’s Deviantart stage.
Now he just hides all of his stupid-looking OCs in the ocean where no one can find them.
Megamind. Incredibly handsome criminal genius, and master of all villainy.
This is genuinely Jenn.
No character has even encompassed Jenn more than Megamind.

Who are these people and y r they so perf?!
This is the most accurate damn thing I’ve ever seen.
You know, I’d really like to know how people would react to that scene if it hadn’t been Scott and Derek, but maybe - say Scott and Lydia. with, for whatever reason, Lydia in Derek’s place.
Let’s just imagine that Lydia’s…
We don’t have to imagine anything. The comparison is already in the text. Derek said, “We need to kill the kanima and stop the murders.” And Scott said, “No, the ends don’t justify the means,” when it was one of his friends who was the “end” that justified the means. Scott stopped Derek, didn’t manage to stop the kanima, and many people died. Scott never did stop the kanima.
When it was Derek who had to suffer as the the means towards the end of stopping Gerard, Scott obviously thought it was different — now the ends justifying the means was a reasonable plan. It’s interesting that this was after Derek had conceded to Scott’s boycott on ends/means actions when offered another option.
This whole exploration of the theme is clearly on purpose, as both Scott and Derek flip sides. Derek changes his actions and stops seeking the expedient means to an end and puts his trust with Scott. This is after the pool scene and the trust conversation with Stiles, and after Deaton’s talk about trust, and after Scott finally agrees to join the pack, and so Derek has been primed to re-think trust, and he puts it with Scott and tries another method of solving the problem. Scott, meanwhile, goes on the opposite journey, without ever seeming to realise he has. On screen, he trusts no-one with the truth about Gerard’s threats, lies about Allison’s mom, reveals his plans to no-one, and decides to (ab)use people’s trust in him to fix things on his own, all the while pretending to be doing the opposite.
I find the complexity of Scott’s moral choices interesting and I wish they had more screen time. It seems that because Scott wasn’t planning to kill Derek, it didn’t ping his moral radar that using Derek’s body without consent was also wrong; but this was a textbook, premeditated ends-justify-the-means choice. It meant he could kill Gerard through Derek’s bite, and so keep the blood off his own hands, and keep it where it belonged — on Derek’s.
The perfect capstone to this thematic arc is that it didn’t even work — Gerard lived and is still spreading his evil, and Lydia solved the kanima situation. So Scott’s means weren’t even justified by the end, because the hoped-for end didn’t happen, and Scott is still seemingly oblivious about the ethical implications of his choices.
I understand why people read Scott as the hero — the text positions him that way really strongly, so it’s easy to accept what the text says instead of what it shows. I just can’t decide if Davis expects us to be smart enough to see Scott’s hypocrisy and flaws despite his position as hero, and so read them as a clever undermining of the classic hero tropes, or if we’re meant to think Scott’s privileged position makes these actions okay just because it’s the hero that does them (might is right). I am leaning more towards the latter, given the philosophy that seems to underpin most of the show. For instance, the Argents are also not as textually condemned as you would expect a racist murder cult to be, and the werewolf victims are canonically blamed for most of the problems in the Teen Wolf world (that is not said as apologism for their own bad choices — they are just as flawed as all the other characters, and do problematic things. I’m pointing out that the werewolves are systemically blamed for effects they did not cause).
That said, I will not be very surprised if this ends up being a Darth Vader narrative with Scott in the Anakin role, because it’s one of the few ways the thematic arcs of the show could come together to make logical sense. And Davis does love his clever reversals, so a long-con like that would be in keeping with many of his other narrative choices.
voting against gay marriage is like ordering a piece of cake at a restaurant and having a complete stranger be like “waiter, cancel that cake”
"waiter cancel that cake it’s ruining my cake and i don’t know how to explain it to my children"
"my dietbook said I can’t have cake so throw that guy’s cake away too."
I got a migraine and threw up because of this
i cant sleep cause of this now
I love this so much.
I have always LOVED figure skating this just tops it OH MY GOD

Ok. So my friend Cat (Simplicaty, tumblr Mekhack) and myself decided to play the Left 4 Dead 2 mutation “Hard Eight”, on the Parish campaign.
For those that don’t know, hard eight is a game mode in which all the special infected spawn twice, with a maximum of 8 specials in the game at one point.
We started on Advanced difficulty.
This was a tactical error.
Not the difficulty. The whole thing.
After the failing at the second level about 4 or 5 times we dropped to Normal.
After failing the fourth level (not exaggerating) 12 timeswe dropped it down to easy.
The campaign normally takes 45 minute to an hour. We were there for a little over three hours.
We killed a total of 1,004 special infected.
We have also both gone completely batshit insane.
Here are the post game screenshots. Because i’m not going through all that for nothing!
I’m not sure if I’m crying or laughing.
On the plus side, this is a new friendly fire record for me. I blame Coach. He needed to die.
3 hours, 2 difficulty drops, and 7414 zombies later…
