I found this extremely trippy, weird supposedly psychological test, where they ask you to tie together these shapes and give them characteristics.
I just posted a few questions up. As you can see it’s really, really odd and slightly creepy.
At the end of the test they gave you a personality description based on your choices.
People with photosensitive seizures should note that this test has a flashing background!
Wow, that was neat. Even though for at least half those questions, I had no fucking clue what was going on or what what meant, I think I got an accurate assessment somehow.
Handy in the real world manipulation of objects and events, you are easily enthused by practical projects. You often ignore or conveniently forget rules and boundaries that limit your freedom. This need for freedom extends even to the personal sphere and though you are kind and gentle, you will often be hard to pin down to a monogamous lifestyle. Because you tend to verbalize so seldom, you can be seen as phlegmatic or impassive. In moments of high tension you can often surprise those around you with a lighthearted or humorous remark. Because of your facility with the physical world, you are often engaged in sports that require dexterity, such as motorcycling or hang gliding. You will rarely have time for flights of fancy or unproductive discussion. Constraints on your freedom will be regarded as a personal attack.
Except maybe not hanggliding.
I didn’t even take the test. I found myself just staring at the pictures and drooling and mumbling “that’s trippy”, I think. I will try to take the test again.
OK HOW THE FUCK DID IT KNOW THIS WITH THOSE CREEPY AS FUCK QUESTIONS
You have a poetic sensibility and an ability to see beyond the day to day. You often seem to be living in a higher realm, or to be not-of-this-earth. Occasionally you imagine interior lives for friends and associates that are near-complete fabrications based on your fears or hopes for the future. You are often not aware of your own feelings. You have a strong sense of right and wrong, and because of this are often disappointed. Despite what can sometimes be a destructive inward-turning anger, you are very gentle. You are sometimes a bit out of touch with the ebb and flow of modern life. If your behavior is out of synch with your moral values, a severe psychic disturbance can result. Because connectivity is so important to you, you can become quiet and sulky if you feel that others around do not understand your point of view.
Ok, I’m guessing there’s some generalization as with many of these “personality tests based on binary answers”, but look at this:
"Quiet and very self-assured, you tend to keep your own council. Pragmatic and practical to a fault, you are not one to worry about the finer points of philosophical discourse. In fact, because you are very much an individualist, you often finds yourself at odds with the established truth or the wishes of the majority. You will often earn the wrath of an employer by taking upon yourself decisions which are rightly those of your manager. You are not one to take credit unless it is deserved. Similarly however, you will also not happily give credit where it is not due. In a romantic relationship you can be very frustrating. While you do care deeply and sincerely, and are willing to work at a relationship, your confidence in your own abilities can on occasion make it difficult to see the world from a partner’s point of view. Quiet and stoic at times, you can drive a more emotional individual completely up the wall. You can become overstressed and fatigued without knowing it. Taking time to rest between bouts of hard work can help to prevent a breakdown later on."
More or less accurate.
Well this is scarily accurate
You are in a perpetual quest to find the new, the exciting. Emotionally volatile, you are known for sudden changes of opinion, of appreciation, and behavior. Following rules and established methods is difficult for you and the difficulties of higher education are usually quite daunting. Knowledge is best gained through an intimate association with the matter at hand. Usually driven by attitudes and desires of the group, you are talented in an established field of endeavor. Emotions come and go without a strong understanding of their causes. They are unexpected guests in an otherwise placid landscape. You live by your own codes of conduct, which can be noble or terrible depending on the individual. Authority is meaningless to you. You hate to be predictable, at all costs. Rarely verbally effusive, you can at times feel as if your feelings are too deep for words. You are very observant, but rarely express these observations to others.
Always amazes me how odd yet right these can be.
Isn’t it nice how people twist their religious scripture to suit their weds but when it’s used against them it’s suddenly not okay
I talked to a monk about this quote once (we have mutual friends, and he came to a New Year’s Eve party at my shared art studio). He said this isn’t even talking about homosexuality. That the bible never actually says homosexuality is wrong. What that passage means is this:
Women were treated as subservient and it that you shouldn’t treat other men as subservient, like they are beneath you. It is not talking about homosexuality. If it was, it would say it outright since the bible lists other things outright.
I take the word of a monk who have studied the bible extensively more than a self proclaimed Christian.
The above text, I would like to point out is from the point of view of this translation of the original Hebrew. I spoke with my cousin’s rabbi on the matter and his response was different, saying that it was a mistranslation. See, the true translation says that a man shall not lie with another in the bed of a woman, which is to say, the Hebrews had a shit ton of rules about when a man was or was not allowed in a woman’s bed and private quarters (including, if she didn’t want you there, you weren’t allowed there. Hebrew women were also allowed to divorce their husbands and the image of the ‘oppressive Hebrew people’ is an image that was propogated by Christianity which, historically speaking, doesn’t treat the Jewish people too well and liked to paint them as being rather barbaric and backwards and cultish with their traditions, which, another piece of fun info, their traditions were one of the main reasons why the Jewish people were less likely, in medieval times, to die of the plague. Because washing your hands and avoiding the dead and vermin and the like was a lot of help. Of course the Christians persecuted them for not dying but that’s another matter. I’m sidetracked). So the verse is literally saying ‘Don’t fuck in some lady’s bed because that’s just goddamn rude’
Also, whenever a Christian brings the book of Leviticus up, you should feel free to point out that these are rules that were given to make the Hebrew people prepared for when the son of God came to earth. In Christianity, it’s believed the son of God was Jesus. So by following the rules set in Leviticus or pushing them as things we should follow, they’re saying that Jesus was not the son of God, and that Jesus did not, in fact, die for our sins. Jewish people believe, in their faith, that the son of God hasn’t yet been born, so many choose to follow these rules.
Most people of course roll their eyes when I explain the translation of the verse (full breakdown found here) but it’s always fun to point out the nature of the rules in Leviticus and the implications of following them.
I’m a theology student and I am on the verge of crying because of how accurate this commentary is. Historical context is simultaneously the most interesting and most important part of interpreting any texts.
Most religious people seem to base their beliefs on things that are severely mistranslated. I wish they would do their research before using the bible for hate.
I studied theology extensively and was going to become a theologist until I switched majors. The above commentary is 100% accurate and what I try to stress in a lot if conversations with Bible Thumpers.
Jesus also affirms the homosexual relationship between the Roman Centurion and his “slave”. The particular Greek word used to refer to this special slave was “pais”. Greek language studies and contexts show that a “pais” was a male love slave. Regular slaves were called “dolos”. The Centurion makes this distinction clearly when he asks Jesus to heal his slave (pais), and then to prove his status he tells Jesus that his slaves (dolos) go when he tells them to. But this slave (pais) was special. He was the Centurion’s lover.
Hearing this, Jesus was so amazed he says he had not found ANYONE ELSE who had such great faith. He then blesses the Centurion and heals his male lover.
THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE REALLY TEACHES ABOUT SAME SEX COUPLES.
In short, the English adaptation is a mistranslated farce.
EXCUSE ME WHILE I REBLOG THIS FIFTY MILLION TIMES
SO MUCH THEOLOGY! SO MUCH! SMART PEOPLE WHO KNOW THINGS ARE THE BEST PEOPLE!
SO MUCH SMART
Not to mention, that really beautiful and amazingly evocative passage read at so many Christian weddings?
""Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried.
That’s from Ruth to Naomi, her mother-in-law and the woman she spent the rest of her life beside.
How curious, then, that this, along with Corinthians 1:13, is considered to be one of the greatest vows of love in the entirety of the Bible.
My friend is coming over today for some weeaboo dragon poking simulator, so I figured I’d surprise him with some MH themed Potion Punch!
It was super easy to make, but I would have made some changes based what I did or didn’t have. It doesn’t taste like grass and mushrooms, but I sacrificed accuracy for stomachability for us non-hunters. Recipe under the cut!
why bronies think people hate them: they watch a TV show marketed at little girls
why people actually hate bronies: they sexualize technicolor horses, …
I’ll just leave these here:
*tips fedora to Snow Dapples for finding the above*
You forgot the one where she had Shining Armor in a thong.
The hypocrisy is delicious.
These are all really cute
So remember, if anyone ever tries to tell you what’s “natural”, laugh the fuck in their face.
I think I like “The Ruff” the most~
What’s the big deal about the Texas Filibuster, you ask?
Well here’s a size comparison of Texas to Europe. Imagine that women only have access to 5 abortion clinics in that whole area!
FIVE. ABORTION. CLINICS.
Now tell me who has the fucking right to deny women these services? on top of that, Texas is a state so a state so big that covers most of Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands along with a good portion of France. Who wants to drive 15 hours for an abortion? Who can do that?
Probably not the people that need the abortion services.
I also can’t imagine the wait lists that would build up and eventually make the abortion impossible by the new law.
“Oh, you got raped? Too bad”
“Oh you can afford to raise a child? Too bad.”
“Not the right time to get pregnant because you’re in school/working or for whatever you need an abortion for? Too bad.”
One other thing is, at least in some states and if they didn’t change it, you have to talk to a doctor at the clinic and then wait at least 24 hours before you can actually even have the abortion. So instead of having to miss say one day of your job for the abortion you have to miss two.
