IM JEALOUS OF COUNTRIES THAT TEACH LANGUAGES TO CHILDREN FROM A YOUNG AGE SO BY THE TIME THEYRE LIKE 18 THEYRE BILINGUAL . IN MY ELEVEN YEARS OF AMERICAN PUBLIC SCHOOLING I CAN NAME YOU LIKE 5 COLORS IN SPANISH
i’m a 14 years old argentinian girl and i run a blog in english
literally everyone in America hates the American education system and has thousands of ideas for how to make it better but nothing ever fucking changes
#1 reason for nothing ever fucking changing: standardized testing is all that matters in public schools because federal funding is tied to standardized test scores, and states don’t want to fund that shit, so schools teach to the test.
Having not read the entirety of Stardust Crusaders, if at some point Joseph doesn’t run the hell away I will be filled with a profound sadness.
On the one hand, /hell yes/ more Magic World support and the introduction of NES-era RPG world. And the game is finally getting official playmats!
On the other hand, I am so sick of Dragon World, which has been included in every single set so far, and now there’s going to be a Drum Bunker Dragon for every world (except Danger). Were Royal Paladins so ubiquitous to CFV when that game started? Because this is ridiculous.
AND FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN CINEMA HISTORY AN AMERICAN MADE MOVIE SWAPS FANATICAL PATRIOTISM FOR BASIC HUMAN DECENCY EVEN THOUGH THE MOVIE ITSELF IS CALLED CAPTAIN AMERICA AND IT DOESN’T GET ANY MORE PATRIOTIC THAN THAT BUT MARVEL CHOSE A DIFFERENT PATH AND I’M THANKFUL FOR THAT pardon my capslock
and in a fantastic plot twist, the answer was not to nuke the enemy
#STEVE ROGERS FOR PRESIDENT
No but seriously, for as much as people expect Captain America to be a piece of jingoist propaganda, he’s actually most recently been consistently written as the exact opposite. He’s not a defender of America, he’s a defender of the American dream.
I love throwing hundreds of dollars at board game kickstarters because I have discovered in recent years that board games are /fucking rad/.
Like seriously, once you get past the shitty popular games like Monopoly and Candyland, you reach a thick stew of bomb-ass games like Ascension, Yomi, Sentinels of the Multiverse, Elder Sign, Attack the Darkness, Star Wars X-Wing/Star Trek Attack Wing, Cards Against Humanity, and so many more. And there are even fun games for the family like Ticket to Ride and Apples to Apples! And there are even ways to make the bad games good; just look at Risk Legacy or The Doom That Came To Atlantic City (Reverse Monopoly)
For people who consider themselves gamers, board games are an incredible way of replicating the feeling of local multiplayer in video games, which is going away in favor of online. Online is great, for sure! But it in no way replaces the feeling of hanging out with your best buds and fighting against each other/working together towards a common goal/fighting against each other to work together towards a common goal.
JoJo doesn’t break out the comedy all too often, but when it does, boy howdy does it fucking deliver.
Cake Boss in a nutshell…
Customer: I want a nice chocolate cake for my young son, and he likes trucks, so could you maybe do a little frosting picture of a truck on the top?
Cake Boss: SOS WHAT WES GUNNA DO IS MAKE A GIANT TRUCK ENTIRELY OUTTA RICE CRISPIES AND COVA DAT IN FONDANT AND IZ GUNNA SHOOT SPARKS AND CATCH FIYAH, POSSIBLY KILLIN YOUR SON IN DA PROCESS.
Of course, as part of the gift-slash-curse of the Cake Scarab, he would be able to communicate with the son in the event of death.
