Why is a Raven Like a Writing Desk?"Why is a raven like a writing desk?" The answer is "They both produce a few notes, all very flat, and are almost never turned the wrong way front." What this means is that: "they both produce a few notes" - ravens don't have much variety in their songs and people use desks to write (paper) notes that have little variety as well. "all very flat" - what could be flatter than a piece of paper? And ravens' songs are apparently rather flat-sounding. "and are almost never turned the wrong way front" - a desk is useless if it's faced the wrong way, because you can't sit there. "raven" spelt backwards is "nevar", and thus "raven" is almost "never" turned the wrong way front.Why is a Raven Like a Writing Desk?3 years ago in Personal More Like This

You may have noticed that today is a momentous day in the field of llamas. Due to their unexpected popularity, we have decided to tweak the llama levels a bit, in order to maximize fun and fairness for every deviant around -- from llama aficionados to those who simply dabble in llamas from time to time.
What llamas? Glad you asked!
Behold, the new breakdown of llamas! (If you dislike spoilers and wish to achieve the levels by pure surprise, then keep scrolling.)
= 1 (Llama)
= 10 (Super Llama)
= 50 (Albino Llama)
= 100 (Super Albino Llama)
= 500 (Ninja Llama)
= 1,000 (Fancy Llama)
= 2,500 (King Llama)
= 5,000 (Spartan Llama)
= 7,500 (Wizard Llama)
= 10,000 (Golden Llama)
There you have it! So many awesome reasons to stay connected to the community and to search out new and undiscovered deviants. Share the wealth, my friends. Share it.

Living Rainbow Taking Flight
The vibrant digital paintings of alicexz are fiery, emotional, and incredibly memorable.
The colors of her creations (mostly portraits of popular TV and Film characters) are unusually vibrant, which is remarkable considering how layered they appear to be. It’s sort of like what manga characters might look like if painted by one of the Dutch Masters. And this artist exhibits just the right amount of quirkiness to leave us wanting to know more: she has a penchant for painting redheads. But, then of course, there’s a lot of red and golden fire burning through most her artworks.
My 'adopted' teensI have two teens boys (both 16 yrs old) who I pretty much adopted or fostered (unofficially).

The first thinks he's a rebel against the world. He is into the "goth" "emo" type of culture in his appearance and last year when I first met him, he would cut himself almost daily. He was miserable in his home. He has 2 younger siblings who have their own emotional baggage, the whole family has been abused in multiple ways by the adult men in their lives. I wish I could help them all, but there is a sign of "resiliency" in him. For those who are not sure what I am talking about, Resiliency is the qualities that some people have to overcome any obstacle that tries to wreck their live. Somehow they can get through the worst and move on past it eventually. I have it even when I often don't think I do, but I've been through a great deal of bad things in my
Lies, lies, liesWhy do people lie? Is it to protect? To hurt? If it is, then who? Who would they be protecting or hurting? Is it to hurt themselves, kind of like a punishment? Is it to hurt others, because they like it, or because they lash out at others to keep them from getting close? What about protecting? Who would you be protecting? Again, yourself, or others? Is it ever okay to lie to someone if you think it's protecting them? Is it /ever/ okay to lie?Lies, lies, lies4 years ago in Personal More Like This
What if people lie just because they can? Is there a point to that? Can people really say lies have no reason behind them? Isn't there supposed to be some grand meaning behind everything?
And what of the compulsive liars? Why do they feel the need to lie?
Will anyone ever know the answers to any of these questions? Can we ever truly know the answer to such things?

Why Authors Kill Off CharactersI can actually answer this question, at least for myself. Coming from the perspective of a hopefully-soon-tobe-published author, I think killing off main characters is a sign of maturity as a writer. When authors coddle their characters and give them whatever they want, the end result is often spoiled, hard-to-relate-to characters who get happy endings handed to them on a silver platter. Take Twilight, for example. In all four 400-600 page novels, not one pivotal "good" character dies. And what are we left with? Little character development, no themes or lessons to be learned, and the acute feeling that the books were more like fairytales with all the characters skipping off into the sunset hand-in-hand. Admit it: you remember a book that made you cry more than a book that made you smile. Every classic novel that has withstood the test of time features some sort of death, agony, suffering or all of the above. Suffering builds character. And sometimes, killing a character is necessary fWhy Authors Kill Off Characters3 years ago in Personal More Like This

to all the people who have ever considered suicideThere is always a reason to keep fighting. I do not care how pitiful your life is, how seemingly insignificant, how painfulyou do matter. You matter to someone: perhaps it's your mother, your father, your friend. Perhaps it's someone you haven't even met yet, but that's part of the adventure, isn't it? There is always something more to come. Every human life is so incredibly and insurmountably precious. And I will not sit here and tell you that there are people who have it worse than you, because that's silly and useless. In your world, you feel alone and desperate and you feel as if nothing, nothing could ever make you feel happy or even functional again, and that is your world. You feel as if your life, your universe, everything you ever thought about yourself and the people around you is crumbling and crashing down. But I can guarantee that it will get better. I promise you. I promise.to all the people who have ever considered suicide3 years ago in Personal More Like This

about KHR 398: read this and calm downso i read KHR chapter 398 and i saw practically the same response of most readers which is along the lines of xanxus and squalo who might die because one lost his arm while the other is stabbed.about KHR 398: read this and calm down3 years ago in Personal More Like This
i feel the need to address these reactions because its really bland, why didnt anyone say how much they laughed when byakuran said "i'll go first since i won the janken" or how byakuran suddenly looked so similar to dino at page 11?
so my first message is:
CALM YOUR TITTIES.
GUYS! I KNOW THAT IT IS REALLY SHOCKING THAT XANXUS LOST AND ARM AND SQUALO IS DYING
BUT THINK ABOUT THIS!
WHY AM I CASPING LOL
anyway guys, think about this, in the TYL world, xanxus still have both arms and squalo is well and alive
so dont worry, they will be fine.
OK? JUST CALM THE HELL DOWN
i'm fine if you dont agree with the TYL world thing because the future can always be changed
also, think about this, would Amano-sensei let any popular guys die? will she? well, tyl tsuna 'died' but it was fake death right?

I think you can tell from the title i am quite doubtful about it
Anyways, someone showed me this picture
As you can see, it is Amano Akira's style, with some features related to KHR.
For a brief moment i was all "YAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!"
but after reading the comments, i kinda got worried .
Many people actually think that this is a new series for the KHR manga.
I did have the same reaction, my brothers did have the same reaction.
Suddenly, the only thing i am happy about is that i am able to see Amano-sensei's style again after the longest time
and after thinking for a while, i thought otherwise.
I really dont want to be a party pooper, but why would a complete manga start a new series?
Have you seen ANY manga that does this? it finish one series, and starts again with another.

Bloody feelingsHere's one great advice for every person out there.Bloody feelings3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Think of something that scares you. Something that you usually don't dare to say or do.
Now imagine that you actually proceed with that thing. What good/bad can come out of it?
Now imagine that you didn't do that thing. What good/bad can come out of that?
Which one of the good side is worth the most? Which one of the bad side is the worst of them?
Which one stings the most in a short period of time?
Which one stings less at a time, but over a longer period of time?
I picked the one that felt the most in short time.
The one that I only felt regret for about two days.
If I hadn't told her I would've felt regret for weeks, months, maybe years to come.
The result wasn't what I'd expected. Nor was it what I'd hoped for either.
It was actually somewhat in between.
I told her that my feelings had grown a lot. Not just some basic lust.
I thought of her before I fell asleep every night.
My heart skipped a beat every now and then

I'm just tired of all the bullshit.
Everything is so hard.
The only thing that's become easier is faking it.
I highly doubt any of the people that matter have noticed my depression unless I voice it.
I don't mind that they don't notice.
I'm used to it.
That's how it's always been, and it will always be that way.
The one person I want to notice, that I know will care more than others, is the one person I cannot tell. I push that person away, and I know I shouldn't, but I do. It hurts me, more than cutting, more than overdosing. And I guess.. That's why I do it. I don't deserve someone as amazing, understanding, as perfect as my person. But that person chose me. And I don't know why, and I don't deserve that person's love, attention.. I don't deserve anything from anyone. But they keep giving. Why? Why bother? Why care, why love, why /feel/? You can't truly feel the happiness without pain, but is it worth it? Will it ever be?
