But that's quite all right. I'm not at all externally focused and I know that what others think (especially on the internet, on social networking sites) have absolutely no effect on what I choose to do or how I choose to do it. So you may ask, "why are you even on here?", and that is a good question. The reason I post what I do is a clear signal to the "universe" (for the lack of a better term) that this is what I have chosen to do. It's almost irrelevant what my viewers think of what I am doing because I'm not doing it for them. But that makes me sound unfriendly.. If you like it, good. If you don't like it, good. If you get rude or obnoxious or hypocritical, well that's annoying a little bit
So during this last 12 to 15 months I've been posting nude photos and my views have gone from 7000 to 110000. T

Nigeria, in the last decade or so has seen thousands of people die because they were Muslim OR Christian. They are killing each other by the hundreds with guns, machetes, or whatever means available. Women and children slain in their homes because they were a different religion. What possible God sees this as OK? OH perhaps it's the god that commands his followers to kill thousands and thousands of people in the Bible. Seems like the same one to me.
There are property rights and what the government refers to as "indigeneship" in Nigeria. It means whoever was first to live on a particular parcel of land, has the rights to it. Add to this law of "indigeneship" the fact that Nigeria now produces a LOT of oil and you have the makings of a war. Ironically, the "democratic" government has embezzled four t

A long, long response to a bio-denialistRecently I tried to educate someone on DA who believes the usual "evolution is the devil's lies" jazz.A long, long response to a bio-denialist5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Fascinatingly, none other than our friend kajm interjected, apparently stalking my comment history on a regular basis, telling her I was just a troll and to delete and block me.
Despite the fact that he himself accepts evolutionary science, his obsessive, stalking hatred of me is more important to him than education. I guess that goes without saying for someone who will make up anything they can to convince innocent kids to deny how climate works at even its most basic level.
So, I'm going to finally just copy/paste what I said to her here, in the off chance that maybe it will actually help somebody.

This is, unfortunately, impossible. No scientific evidence ever can exist for the supernatural. Science is based on observation alone. There is no way for creation to be scientifically documented unless we we

TUTORIAL - Tips for All ArtistsHello everyone!TUTORIAL - Tips for All Artists2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have written a tutorial like this before here. But recently I have had more thoughts about it that I decided to share. As you may have noticed, I am not a professional artist, I am a hobbyist and self-taught, and what I will expose here is what I've learnt from my own experience. Even so, I hope this tutorial will be helpful to you!
Another note: English is not my first language, so I apologize if I commit any mistakes.
Feel free to correct my grammar any time, as well as make suggestions or asking questions!
This tutorial is for every kind of artist, but sometimes I will focus more on visual artists (since it's my speciality).
I believe that everyone can be an artist, and this tutorial has not only the purpose of providing advices and tips, but also motivation for all.

Important message to all(SPREAD THIS!!!)What I have learned from becoming a Brony is the same type of things I learned from becoming a Christian, to accept all others no matter their views, gender,or beliefs. I have come to see that others will insult simply for those, well I come to know these as the lost. They have taken what the world has given and given up, but they can all be saved. Through showing them the respect we people give other, by showing them love and compassion. Showing them that others truly care for them, cause all the peaceful and the respectful are warriors of peace. We carry are shields and are armor, we use that of are words as a weapon of peace. The helmet stands for knowledge, the shield for tolerance, are words for love. We carry are fallen comrades and enemies! We show all respect and love! We show the fallen there is something still to believe in, a good that a wholesomely good! We give them the offer to take up the shield and helmet! If they accept we raise are shields as brothers!

Otherworlde Class ChangesHello students!Otherworlde Class Changes2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
We have taken the time to balance the various departments to ensure that the same amount of effort is required to get a degree from each. As you might have noticed, some of the departments (Medicine, for example) had easier, more straight-shot paths toward getting a degree, whereas other departments like Shamanism or Hexing were difficult due to all of the prerequisites.
This has now been fixed. The degree requirements for each class are roughly the same now: if you're a full time student taking three classes a quarter, you can graduate in four years regardless of which department you choose.
For those Intermediate and Advanced students that the new changes affect (especially in terms of which classes you would have picked in the past to get toward your degree), contact viralremix so we can work out a way to get you back on track and switch over some of your passed classes to other ones.

Discimination isn't always wrong, it all depends on how you apply it.
When it comes to abusive men/women, child molesters or rapists, i'd say some discrimination is valid.

Discrimination against the popular kids has its root in how the popular kids treat the unpopular kids. We respond to cruelty with the only weapon we have - our witty insults.
Discrimination based on a person's actions toward others, and not necessarily their behaviour, is absolutely necessary in our society - thing is we're all individual humans and not everyone agrees on what should be discriminated against - wh

Those of you who are atheists, and are very vocal about to the point of ridiculing other people for still believing in a higher power....
I try to respect everyone's beliefs. So long as they don't shove their religious views into my face, then I will be respectful of their beliefs.
And I do try to be respectful of those of you who are atheists.
But there is something that I do hate. And that is shoving your beliefs into other people's faces.
I know that not all atheists do this. I do hope that most atheists are sensible people who know that everyone has their own views about the way the world works. After all it is our differences that makes us all unique. The world would be a very boring place if we all believed in the same thing.
But just as much as I hate fundamental Christians who get their joys about preaching that I need more Jesus in my life, I hate it when a bunch of atheists spam

The beautiful yet arresting digital painting is "Countdown" by yuumei and it is currently one of the most popular pieces on deviantART. It is "archetypal yuumei" in its perfectly balanced blending of a striking lyrically beautiful visual with an underlying urgent social or political message.

his life is not easy; a winding, sometimes whimsical, sometimes tragic journey that ultimately finds terminus in the same common destination for each of us. No matter the brave, fierce constructs we build and serve that would have us believe we are each one of us all alone as we make this journey, we make our way toward the end of all things side-by-side in our community of the living each day defying death.

That Northrend will never be discovered and thus stopping Yogg-Saron.
Or that Kalimdor will never be discovered by the humans and dwarves.
Or perhaps the Alliance will never be formed.
And Medivh would not be killed off, and since he has Sargeras inside of him, he'll complete his plans.
All because the Horde wasn't there.
Okay, let's think about this for one bit. I'm gonna propose something that is rather radical in thinking. What I'm proposing is simple.

Well, I began to think about things while sitting alone in the dark with only my idiot brain to keep me company. And also, I do this to make sure that I DON'T make Nel spiral down into that hated place.
So, to ask the question, let's really define what Gary Stu means.
Gary Stu is the male version of Mary Sue, a very hated word among many fanfic writers. And it was coined from an old 1970s fanfic that details Lieutenant Mary Sue getting it on with James T Kirk, and that she was this perfect, can do no wrong, person who was awesome.
Yes, this word is older than I am. The term itself and its definition is almost 40 years old. Nearly half a century old, people!
But it really didn't come to the fore of many fanfic writers until the invention of the Internet when fanfiction could be more readily read and easi

Ten of the worst anti-feminism argumentsA growing number of people on Deviantart fancy themselves part of an "anti social justice" movement. In their eyes, white, straight men are being unfairly bullied and oppressed by women, minorities and the LGBT community. To them, requests for equal treatment somehow go too far, and backlash against the prejudiced is somehow a greater evil than prejudice was to begin with. Eventually I'll be writing something like this for racial issues, but for now, we're going to focus on the increasingly hostile, extremist "anti-feminist" subculture and the faultiest talking points of their agenda.Ten of the worst anti-feminism arguments3 months ago in Personal More Like This
