Xmas FeatureMERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE!Xmas Feature1 year ago in Personal More Like This
For this Christmas holidays I wanted to do something special for all the people who appears in my watchers list, all of you are the reason why I keep coming back to DA, and for you I try to improve my artworks. Thank you!
So I decided to make another special Journal of features, even if some of you never write me a comment, Im happy just for having you on my list.
A clarifying note; unfortunately I can´t put everyone here, mostly because some watchers have changed accounts and they don´t use the old ones anymore, others are deactivated or simply have not been here in a looooong time (a year or more) and most likely they will not return.
Anyway, There are some of the artworks that I picked up, sorry I couldn't search your galleries more deeply more than the surface pages, this was something slow and I have little time.
First of all :iconTehChessie: ; She was kind eno

O-OI swear my mind is one seriously fucked up demented place!O-O1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I had a dream I was visiting my dad ,who was suddenly rich for some reason, for my little brothers birthday, which was last month. They had a huge bouncy house that has a swing set inside it! All the kids and teens where all playing inside it. I of coerce couldn't get up from the ground be ing the push over I am and when it was time to go back I stayed behind to catch my breath. I spotted....what looked like a teenage Harley Quinn and a normalish looking teenage boy. He suddenly stabbed a knife threw the side of the head and threw a potion on her. He then said in a hushed tone " Go my monster, create havoc!"
Harley then rushed off into my dad's house and I followed keeping an eye on all that was happening. Harley's face wasn't her face tho O-O. Blade then came to the party and killed Harley and then I found out Blade was my father and he killed my other father and my step mother and adopted my brother.

Magenta isn't a thing...
Isaac Newton wasn't the first person who noticed that when light passed through a prism, it transformed into a rainbow of colors, but he was the first to figure out (roughly) why. Before him, people had supposed that the prism somehow corrupted the color of the light. Newton took that rainbow, passed it through another prism, and "re-assembled" it into its original state (white light), and deduced correctly that white light is actually made up of many different colors. He even charted it out, making a linear bar of all the colors, from red on the left to violet on the right.
But then he noticed that a popular visible color -- magenta -- was not in the spectrum. Magenta was really a combination of red and violet. So Newton took the his linear color spectrum and made it a circle,
Bad BoyI'm trying to get back into the swing of posting a journal a day. I really enjoyed interacting with my watchers and even some non-watchers who stumbled onto my profile when I was doing this more regularly. ^^ I'm an introvert, yeah, but I'm outgoing and a social butterfly. Sometimes I just need to isolate myself and stay away from the world. It's nothing against other people, by any means. :3Bad Boy2 months ago in Personal More Like This
To be honest, I don't really have a whole hell of a lot to say right now. I'm just waiting patiently for my Valentine to wake up on his side of the world so we can chat and talk and spend a little much-wanted time together. ^_^
So, since I can't really think of anything to talk about: Give me suggestions! Is there something you want me to discuss on tomorrow's journal? Do you have something you've always wanted to know about me? Drop me a question! c: I only bite when you want me to
Rosia Montana protests continueSo its been already more than a month and people still continue to protest all over the country and in other countries also yet there seems our government has chosen to turn a blind eye to this protests. To make it worst, in this past month, a multitude of facts surfaced to point out illegalities in the contract, corruption, pay offs and international pressure over the matter of the gold in Rosia Montana over the past years.Rosia Montana protests continue2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In all honesty, I think the gold its only a front. It has been proven by many experts that the true battle is given for rare minerals rather than gold (the quantities of rare minerals as: titan, germanium, arsenic, molybdenum, vanadium, nickel, cobalt, gallium and wolfram are in greater quantities than gold and silver but their are featured in the contract as being "sterile", which means valueless thus the Romanian State don't get any money from it).

an Irish Sunday School Teacher.
I asked them, ' If I sold my house and my car, had a
big garage sale and gave all my money to the church,
would that get me into heaven?
'NO!' the children answered.
If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the garden,
and kept everything tidy, would that get me into
Again, the answer was 'NO!
If I gave sweets to all the children, and loved my
husband, would that get me into heaven?
Again, they all answered 'NO!
I was just bursting with pride for them. I continued,
'Then how can I get into heaven?'

News and a curious fact about SwitzerlandHi there, guys! I have a little news for you. During the past months, I have writen several fanfics, and now I am going to upload them. I felt I ought to tell you, just in case you're wondering why or from where all the new fanfics pop up. Heh, again, it is the result of the past months' work.News and a curious fact about Switzerland8 months ago in Personal More Like This
And the curious fact I mention? Well, I was sitting in the bus today, and I read it on the passenger tv... came quite as a surprise to me as well. So, I dare anyone name us Swiss lazy. In the year 2013, the entire of Switzerland has worked 2 MILLION EXTRA HOURS! That means 47 hours for every working Person in one year. Which places us near the top among the European countries, fourth, third or second. Plus, with the average of 41 hours a week, we rank as the Country with the third-longest working day in Europe, behind Britain and Iceland.
Isn't that impressive?
So, see ya around guys and hope you'll like my stories!

Support of protests to save Rosia MontanaHello dear friends.Support of protests to save Rosia Montana2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I would like to spread this information, so if some of you already read it or even signed the petition, I apologize.
Rosia Montana is area in Romania, where Canadian firm, Gabriel Resources, wants to create Europe's largest open-cast gold mine.
The project is set to extract 314 tonnes of gold and 1,500 tonnes of silver over a 16-year period. It will destroy four mountain tops, force the relocation of hundreds of families, and leave behind a lake containing 215 million cubic metres of water contaminated with poisonous cyanide.
But using cyanide in mining caused already disaster in 2000 in northern Romanian city Baia Mare, the largest disaster since Chernobyl. The cyanide usage at the Baia Mare mine was 130 times less than the planned amount at Rosia Montana. The ecological impact on european environment would be beyond imagination. No need to add, the contract itself is more than d
pokemon hopes and thoughtsdoes game freak have even more surprises in store for pokemon fans?pokemon hopes and thoughts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I only say this because the three kanto starters all get mega evolutions and the player will be able to pick one of the three during their journey, but blazikin is getting a special distribution date and was seen in the new pokemon xy anime teaser. why is that?
Also game freak shocked a lot of old fans by not only bringing attention back to mewtwo, older generation pokemon via mega evolutions, and the announcement of pokemon the origin. Showing game freak is very much aware of their fans and what some have been asking for and yet they still refuse to make a gen three remake.
but is the emphasis on blazikin in both the games and anime some hint that maybe old characters like May and her blaziken may be returning like she did once before? (since we still don't know exactly where this new region is located) or maybe this could be hinting that they do wish to please their fans with a third gen remake that they didn't want
One Does Not Simply Walk into Gehenna...Our current perceptions of Hell derive primarily from two sources: John Milton's Paradise Lost and Dante's Inferno. However, hundreds of years prior to these great works, there was Gehenna, a truly loathsome place of never-ending fire and noxious fumes that became a living metaphor for Hell on Earth.One Does Not Simply Walk into Gehenna...2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
The name Gehenna is a derivation of the Valley of Hinnom, a ravine outside of old Jerusalem. Starting somewhere around 800 BC, some of the inhabitants of Judah used the valley as a place to worship Moloch, an ancient Ammonite deity. The details of the worship are pretty gruesome, so if you are squeamish, stop reading.
Followers of Moloch erected a bronze statue, depicting the god as having a bull's head and outstretched arms. The statue was hollow or had some sort of fire pit in it. Worshippers would place children to be sacrificed in Moloch's arms, where the flames would gradually consume them until they fell into the pit. There are descriptions of th
I Miss the MiseryEver wake from a nightmare, or maybe even a day dream, that felt so real that the second you find out it was all in your head, you can't help but bite your tongue at the words, "But it did happen," or maybe even you have to stop a moment and think, "Did that really happen, or did I dream it?" I get this sensation constantly and a large amount of the time I find myself wondering what's real and what I made up in my head. If it weren't for the fact that I know I'm completely sane of mind, I would probably be constantly persuading myself that I am, indeed, completely and utterly out of my mind insane. But my life isn't interesting enough to allow me to go that far.I Miss the Misery3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Another thing I'm compelled to question is.. Have you ever watched someone walk out of your life, completely turn their back on you and vanish into thin air? With time, of course, you build your life back up. You start over, you take a deep breath, and you whisper within your heart, "They don't matter anymore. For

My wife can only check at work during the week, so don't think I'm ignoring you!
We are turning off all deviations from anyone for now - and then when we can get back on from home I will start adding you all back. That way I won't have a huge DA file coming in each time the page loads. Sometimes one person or group will send me 300 DA at once! I'm just cutting everything i can think of to decrease the download.
I also will use this time to get back to big time carving. I've spent so much time doing other stuff the last 6 weeks that I really need to get back to the wood shop!

My daughter, who is a freshman in high school, informs me that Johnlock is not, as I had presumed, the "Father of Classical Liberalism", but rather the "Father of All Gay Ships". In fact, it is a "gateway ship" for all sorts of "slash" couples. Confused? I was too. Like I said, keep reading.
Johnlock is John Watson and Sherlock Holmes, paired as a gay couple. More specifically, it is Martin Freeman/Benedict Cumberbatch (hence the term "slash"), in their roles as John and Sherlock, living in a fanfiction story arc (a sort of alternate universe) and being in a romantic relationship (hence the term "ship'") with each other. This is a VERY popular concept among young people (I can pretty much guaranty that my mother NEVER shipped Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce). Fangirls (and fanboys, to a certain extent), who are devoted to the BBC series Sherlock,
