It’s also terribly written and a worthless piece of terrible fanfic.
For example, you can:
- be in a shampoo commercial
- start a boy band:
- spot some choice booty:
- break into song:
- see some people in frankly offensive outfits:
- attend a metal show:
- listen to some sick jams:
- discover zombieism:
- sample some tasty snacks:
- watch someone get burned bad:
- find something you really like:
- find something you really, really like:
- find something you REALLY REALLY LIKE:
- and wonder if you left the stove on:
This one time on Wyrmrest I walked into Silvermoon City on my warlock, and this dude I passed on the street turned his nose up and said “I smell fel magic”
and I was like “good for you dude, you’re in Silvermoon fucking City” but he stopped me and was all “how DARE you bring your demonic taint into our sacred city”
"dude we’re standing on Murder Row, Murder Row"
"no self-respecting Sin’Dorei of any standing would ever dream of polluting themselves with the touch of fel magic"
"you do realize there is a giant floating demon crystal floating directly over your head"
Like what the heck man, what even the heck
"no self-respecting Sin’Dorei of any standing would ever dream of polluting themselves with the touch of fel magic”
kill him he’s obviously a quel’dorei spy

Impression of scintillating scotoma occurring in an artist
Scintillating scotoma is the most common visual aura preceding migraine. This depiction is showing the distorted field alone; it does not depict the normal parts of the field of vision.
A scotoma is any area of alteration in the field of vision. Some are due to defects in the eye or the optic nerves, but scintillating scotomas are not. They are caused by migraines (or many other possible causes) interfering with the processing abilities of the occipital cortex. The scintillating scotoma flickers and blurs vision, but is never dark. It can hinder ability to read and drive, among other things.
Clinical Lectures on Diseases of the Eye. J. Elliot Colburn, 1902.
I get these (mine look like rather crazier versions of the bottom one)…. but not actual migraines. Just suddenly ‘oh look, my brain has pins and needles I CAN’T SEE ARUGHGHGHGH…’
That’s kind of the way I think of it… it’s like somewhere in your neurons, one of them has a cramp and is jumping up and down trying to get feeling back. They really do mess up your vision; I literally pretty much go have a nap because I can’t do crap-all else.
Anonymous said: What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?
50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.
It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.
While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.
Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it.
It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.
Boycott this fucking movie, for the love of god. These kinds of ideas are dangerous and set us back as a society
