that’s how you make armor for women, no bullshit boob cups.
Boob cups must be the most uncomfortable things on earth… What the hell are you supposed to do when one of your boobs slips out? Let’s say you inhale or move your chest somehow so your breasts get free from the cup and end up clipped on the edge?? You can’t even pull them like you can when your bra gets all screwed up! Like who wants to wear that while they’re fighting monsters and shit?
I hit reblog so hard I may have sprained my finger
Boob cups are even worse than that. Because they curve around the breast, if you’re hit in the chest all the force is concentrated on the sternum, which will break and potentially puncture the heart and lungs. But i guess the people who draw them are hoping that the enemies will be too aroused to attack?

Guide to Self-Studying Japanese
A large proportion of Japanese learners self-study. Finding places to learn Japanese in a classroom environment can be difficult and expensive. Here’s a guide on how you can learn Japanese for free and from the comfort of your sofa.
When learning Japanese, the most important step is to learn Hiragana and Katakana, the writing alphabets of Japanese.
The best way I’ve found to do that is to make flashcards. Make sure you practice writing as well as recognizing them, this will not only be a great skill to have but will also reinforce the shapes in your mind.
[Hiragana 42], the best guide I’ve found to learn the Hiragana (in a day!)
[Hiranana and Katakana Quiz Site]
[Kana Invaders Game]
[Anki] An amazing program that will make sure you never forget any Vocabulary….
The next step is to start learning vocabulary. Where can you find what to learn? Use a site like Memrise to find word lists (for example, there is a word list for all the vocabulary in starter textbooks like Genki), and use the amazing interface to learn them and keep them in your long term memory.
[Memrise] as mentioned above to find and learn vocabulary lists.
[Most Common Words List]
[Anki] An amazing program that will make sure you never forget any Kanji….
While encountering vocabulary, you’re likely to be coming across super-complicated-looking Kanji. You can learn Kanji through Memrise as above, but there are some other websites that may be of interest.
[Kanji Damage] A great site where you can learn Kanji through Mnemonics.[WaniKani] by the same people ho make TextFugu (below) can help you learn Kanji from scratch.
[Anki] An amazing program that will make sure you never forget any Kanji….
The next step is to apply that new vocabulary to grammar points and start making sentences.
If you can’t get your hands on textbooks like Genki, don’t fear! There are a lot of great online grammar resources.
[TextFugu] a highly rated ‘online textbook’ which will guide you right from the beginning of learning Japanese.
[Guide to Japanese] another online textbook with a lot of grammar points and excellent explanations.
The Fun Parts: Using Japanese Online Media
So you probably have learnt Japanese because you have some interest in Japanese media. Time to start using it to your learning advantage!
Aside from the obvious watching Anime, J-dramas and films, why not try Reading Japanese News? Watching Japanese TV? Just make sure you are making these activities productive - note down new vocabulary, add them to Anki, and keep learning! It’s much easier to learn things you’re interested in. Try translating Japanese songs, etc.
The most important but difficult part of self-studying Japanese is getting your own compositions checked. Utilize all that grammar and vocabulary and write a short piece, it could be a diary entry or a short essay. Get it recorded for you by a native on RhinoSpike, and checked for grammar and consistencies on Lang-8.These sites also give you the chance to connect with Japanese natives, and perhaps start up some language exchanges!

Don't Fly During Ramadan
A couple of weeks ago, I was scheduled to take a trip from New York (JFK) to Los Angeles on JetBlue. Every year, my family goes on a one-week pilgrimage, where we put our work on hold and spend time visiting temples, praying, and spending time with family and friends. To my…
After reading your blog about being detained by the TSA, I thought that these might be handy for any other people on tumblr who might get caught up in a similar situation where they feel their rights as passengers are being ignored:
Know your rights: https://www.aclu.org/files/kyr/kyr_english_5.pdf
As well as TSA’s Office of Civil Rights for Travelers: http://www.tsa.gov/traveler-information/civil-rights-travelers
If an “anomaly” is detected during the pat-down—or when you go through the AIT scanner— you will be subjected to a “resolution pat-down.” TSA agents will take you to a private area and do a more intense pat-down, which includes using the front of the agent’s hands for a more thorough search, including the groin area.
Option: Ask to take a witness with you.
If you are taken to a private area for a “resolution pat-down” search, you can ask to bring a witness with you, or ask TSA to provide a witness for you. This search should also be conducted by a person of the same gender.
confiscate laptops, mobile phones, digital cameras, and other electronic devices upon entry to the United States, without any suspicion of wrongdoing. In some reported cases, CBP has held travelers’ electronics for more than a year.
Option: Ask to see a supervisor, and get a receipt
You have the right to have the initial search conducted in front of a supervisor. If they take your electronics, you can ask for a receipt so you can track where they are and seek their return.
These situations can be very scary and intimidating. However, as in the case above, the best thing you can do is:
Keep calm. Ask for a witness to observe the pat-down and subsequent interview. Make sure you give clear, concise answers and explanations. Leave no room for misinterpretation- so instead of “I am from abroad” say ” I flew from Edinburgh, Scotland on the red-eye flight of British Airways and arrived here at 1am.”
If you feel like you some of your rights are being neglected or if you are being mistreated do to whatever (race, age, religion) ask to see a supervisor.
Do not give vague statements such as “It’s in the constitution.” Instead say “I have the consitutional right to talk to a lawyer before answering any of these questions.If I cannot talk to my lawyer, I would like to call TSA’s office of civil rights in order to inform them that I feel this right is being neglected.”
Save confrontation for afterwards- Remember the names of those involved so if you need to file a complaint, you are aware of all those who were involved.

while i am in need of help, i am not forcing you to reblog this nor am i forcing you to read this. but if you can, can you help me? i am currently depressed, and i’m trying to find ways to make myself happy. I figured i might do something like this, see if it works. Reblog this, and i will write your url in this small notebook of mine. Everytime i feel sad or on the edge, i will pick a random url and send that person a thank-you message, or a message for help. i really hope i’m not coming off as attention-seeking uuuu…but i would really appreciate it if there were people to rant to, or seek help from. thank you for your time, and i hope your day goes well!
