The steppe language of Pathologic: an etymological and grammatical glossary

meradorm:

i.e. I was bored and had access to a lot of dictionaries this weekend, but this way sounds fancier. I had a longstanding desire to make one of these before I put out the alpha patch (if you’re in the tag looking to download it, it should be a couple posts down), so I could gather my thoughts on how to transliterate the steppe words. It turns out that would have been a good idea … well, better late than never. This is incomplete. If you know of any steppe words or phrases I missed - even just a ballpark idea of what day it was and who was speaking - please submit them. I’ll reblog this glossary when I make new additions.

In related news, here’s a thing that exists. I want to buy a house with a mantel just so I can display that on it.

It’s 12 inches long and bendable.

But resistance is risky. A city inspection of 178 homes whose water was shut off last week found that 79 had restarted their supplies, triggering $21,750 in fines on top of what the residents already owed. Of 414 shut-off homes checked in June, 205 were found to have turned the water back on. A first-time penalty is $250. Being caught a second time carries a $500 fine. A third strike, supposedly, leads to the permanent termination of the house’s water supply.

“There are severe consequences,” said Bill Johnson, a spokesman for Detroit’s water and sewerage department. “People are making things worse for themselves. The penalties may be more than the actual bill.”

Did you hear that? People are "making things worse for themselves" by accessing the water supply. Do you ever stop and think how bizarre it is that we’ve created a situation in which a democratically elected—side note: I know emergency managers aren’t elected which is obviously part of the problem; I’m just saying that this is still ostensibly a democratic society in general—government is preventing people from accessing basic resources? The life or death dystopia you’ve all been waiting for isn’t going to be as exciting as you think, friends. It’s just going to be horrible.

the highlighted area is where Jason Derulo knows what the girls want. london to taiwan.

new york to haiti

greenland is right out

ummm no offense but new york to haiti should be measured as the area between the two latitudes, not the longitudes. this graph is incorrect and vastly underestimates the total region of the earth in which Jason Derulo knows what the girls want

Even measuring that way, Greenland remains right out, as does the entirity of Brazil.

Have we considered measuring by neither latitude nor longitude but in all area that would extend perpendicular from the diagonal of the two places?There are many different interpretations of the data, and until more is available, we ought not conclude anything at this point.

In light of that, I posit this alternative map of regions where Jason Derulo is potentially claiming where he knows what girls want:

As we can see, if we assume that model, the vast majority of the area where Jason Derulo knows what girls want is either open ocean (the Atlantic, the Mediterranean Sea) or sparsely populated (the northern Sahara, the northern Arabian Desert, various desert portions of Iran and Afghanistan, and the southern Tibetan Plateau). Four of the ten most populated countries on the planet have no territory in it (Nigeria, Brazil, Japan, and Indonesia), and two which do have relatively little territory in it (the US and Russia). It is suggested that for all his boasting, Jason Derulo does not know what a probable majority of the world’s girls want.

Perhaps Jason Derulo’s intention was never to proclaim to be omnipotent to the interests of the female gender. Perhaps he was instead expressing his humanity, or the limits of his knowledge. I applaud Jason Derulo. Jason Derulo is not just another 2 dimensional character. Jason Derulo has depth.Jason Derulo has limitations and has come to terms with them. Jason Derulo knows Jason Derulo. Thats why he makes it a point to say his name so much.

Help me not get evicted or lose my car?

stophatingyourbody:

randomlancila:

I hate that I have to do this again.

It’s been another month, and I’ve had no luck finding a job. So many of the jobs that are available either aren’t interested once they find out I’m going back to school in the fall, or they’re retail and require standing for long periods of time (I have severe chronic back pain and standing/walking for long periods of time just can’t happen for me.) I am now looking at three major bills due at the end of the month. My rent (which is $600) my car lease, which I have been unable to pay for the past three months (so $210/month x 3, but rounded down to another $600) and am now facing repossession, and my car insurance (which, if I lose my car, I guess doesn’t matter much, but which is $180). I have adjusted my goal accordingly. I can survive without things like cable and a phone, but shelter and a vehicle are absolute necessities. It’s killing me that I’m still in this situation, but any help you could throw my way to keep me sheltered and with access to a vehicle would mean the world. Thank you so, so much.

You guys, this fundraiser is for Amber, my best friend in the world and fellow shyb moderator. This woman helped save my life almost three years ago, and does more for the body positivity community than anyone I’ve ever known.
We’ve raised money here before, and I now you’ll agree that she is an incredible woman, in devastating and scary circumstances, who deserves every bit of our support!

i think it would be neat if there were an alternate view of notes on a post that was set up like some sort of tree diagram so you could see at a glance who to thank/blame for all the unexpected reblogs & likes on the unremarkable text post you forgot you made on your lunch break

yesssss. tumblr step up your game.

Tumblr won’t help us. Someone pitch this to the xkit guy.

There actually used to be an extension that did this, and it was super cool, but because it requires scraping that’s apparently really heavy on the servers, Tumblr staff requested they shut it down and (I believe; not certain, can’t handle going legalese-browsing rn) has since banned those sorts of programs in the TOS.
