But what if on OITNB!

It will never happen but I would really like a musical episode of Orange is the New Black. It could start off with some random inmate whose face we never see having drug hallucinations or something and goes around the prison talking to all the cast members who start singing about their lives and feelings.

But wait! There’s more! Everyone appears dressed up really fancy and pretty like in that one magazine shoot and Miss Claudette mysteriously shows up and maybe a Tricia ghost but definitely Miss Claudette!

I realize Tsukasa isn’t exactly the fluffiest kitten to be around sometimes but why are his friends so awful to him? Mimiru knows he can feel pain and here she is in episode 11 getting on to him for being rightly terrified of combating a giant dragon monster. She even tells him not to use his guardian which (while not exactly given to him benevolently) is his only method of fighting in the World that isn’t actively dangerous to his person. 

"It doesn’t matter if we win or lose!" That’s all well and good Mimiru but I’m pretty sure "losing" means possible death for Tsukasa and if I were him I wouldn’t be willing to find out for certain either considering it would at the very least be incredibly painful. 

That’s not to mention all the times she and Bear have berated Tsukasa about “wasting” his time in the World. Tsukasa fucking lives there people. He is there literally 24/7. He has nowhere to go and nowhere to be and dungeon crawling, leveling up, events and just about everything you’re “supposed” to do in the World is dangerous for him to do (see rant above ^). Seriously those guys are awful to him. I’m sure they don’t mean it but still…

Suddenly wondering if I missed Tsukasa being a disability metaphor.






Omg chill

this is some airbending shit right here

what just happened

We just saw a dream sequence 

This is like one of those sports animes where everyone has super powered attacks, but in real life

Pretty sure this is from the movie Shaolin Soccer. Please go watch it. It will be the most fun you will have all evening.

So….I totally never thought about this. I’m sure very few of you have. I don’t know about you, but I’m a bit disturbed…

Wow. Food for thought. I’m sure there’s an answer though.

Their names were translated/Anglicized after going from Greek to English.

The names of the Apostles are of Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew origins. The Hebrew, Aramaic and “Greek” named Apostles were:

Shim’on = Simon (Hebrew origin).

Y’hochanan = John (Hebrew origin).

Mattithyahu = Matthew (Hebrew origin).

Ya’aqov = James (Hebrew origin meaning Jacob).

Bar-Tôlmay = Bartholomew (Aramaic, which is related to Hebrew).

Judah = Jude / Saint Jude (not to be confused with Judas Iscariot, Hebrew origin).

Yehuda = Judas Iscariot (Hebrew origin, Betrayed Yeshua/Yehosua the Messiah).

Cephas / Kephas = Peter (Hebrew / Aramaic origin meaning “Rock”).

Tau’ma = Thomas (Aramaic origin).

Andrew = Andrew (Greek origin. Is the brother of Cephas / Kephas).

Phillip = Phillip (Greek origin).

You will note that there are only 11 names, that is because there were 2 Apostles named Ya’aqov (James), which brings the total to 12 apostles.



learning more from tumblr than college

yet again

Another fun little tidbid: look at the name we get Jesus from: Yeshua. Moving from Hebrew to Latin and Greek, the Y became an I, then a J when the “ya” sound shifted to “ja”. Look familiar? That’s right; Jesus’s proper Latinized name isn’t even Jesus, it’s Joshua :)

So why did the back change? Greek and Latin don’t have male names that end in vowel sounds; those are typically reserved for women particularly among the Romans where women were long named after their fathers (i.e. Julia is the feminine version of Julius, so it would be read by a Roman literally as “Julius’s daughter” or “Julius’s girl”. By-and-Large Not a fun time being a lady in Republic and Imperial Roman society). As such, a vowel-ending hardly seemed appropriate for their new man-god and they gave it a male ending, -us. Yeshua becomes Yeshuas, and because end-of-name dipthongs like that are also uncommon in Latin and Greek(this is one reason why ancient scholars assumed the Perseus stories and cult originally came from “The East” btw; the ancient Greeks blamed anything odd about the practices and stories of the common folk as coming from “The East”[mostly because they believed everyone to their North and West to be uncivilized savages with nothing to contribute to Civilization, even though most of the precious metals they used likely came from their North and West] so never let anyone tell you Orientalism is a new thing :p In modern times, classics scholars typically think it means Perseus predates the Indo-European Greek culture), it got taken out too, making Yeshus Iesus, then Jesus when J was invented :)

This is relevant to my current research!

    I am a survivor who has been forced to fend for myself at a young age using only my wits and cunning. I am bold and objective with very little respect for those who do not respect me. I am streetwise to the point where I can see through a master of disguise with very little effort because if I did not have these skills I would have been dead a long time ago.
