"I’ll just leave that there"
damn homie just ripped his arm off and walked away that is some hardcore shit right there
just realized that i never posted the end result to my solaire from a couple months back…anyways serious delay but here it is in glorious colored pencil
The best deodorant you will ever use
Seriously. 1/4 teaspoon in each pit and you can sweat your ass off, totally stink-free for like 2 full days. It’s a natural anti-bacterial so those little fuckers won’t multiply and make you smell. Plus it’s cheaper and healthier than any deod you can buy anywhere.
Use equal parts of the following:
With a few drops of whatever essential oil you want, for fragrance. Otherwise it basically just smells like nothing. I use tea tree oil & pine needle oil. Cuz they’re MANLY.
Note - It pretty much turns to liquid if it’s warmer than about 75 degrees. If you want to keep it solid, you can refrigerate it or add a little more corn starch.
Reblogging myself again, cuz I still use this and it’s still awesome
This is what I’ve been using for about a year now and it works wonders.
Not convinced it works? My fiance is literally the smelliest human being I’ve ever met when he’s been sweating all day. I made him some with tea tree oil and he now smells nice and mint-ish as the end of the day, even if he’s been outside working.
Not to mention it’s cheaper, smells better, better for you AND better for the environment to make your own :D
You guys I made this and it works like a fucking miracle.
I sweat my ass off doing absolutely nothing so HEY FUTURE PROJECT
"I loved you, always.”
going to comment a little on this game: the overseeing voice talks as if it owns you, and defies your free will. if you follow its orders, you are praised, and the worldview becomes sharper and more detailed. if you don’t, you are chastised, and the world becomes more vague and difficult to navigate, but also more colourful and loud. it’s odd, and sort of eerie, but definitely interesting. take it as you will.
This game really unsettles me. It unsttles me that my first choice to obey, and when I played again and disobeyed, I got really emotional really fast. Failure hurt me more the more I disobeyed. It was… interesting to experience.
i’ve always said we are trained to obey more than to think.
holy shit. i reblogged this the first time without playing. then i played in and it is terrifying. i very much like this, but it will give you intense feelings.
What’s the game??
you obey everything the game tells you too, even jumping into barbs and basically killing yourself. if you dont youre chastised and even the scolding is terrifying
So, essentially, it’s a game that illustrates what it’s like to be in an abusive parents or an abusive relationship - and how it affects you emotionally. That is horrific and ingenious - the next time someone negates the affects of emotional abuse, I’ll take them to this game and let them come to their own conclusions.
This game absolutely gets it. The most solid and reliable degradation is a gendered insult. The more you obey and co-operate, the better understanding you seem to have of your word, and things seem easier. But what really gets me is the contradiction. You are not allowed to have the correct answer. Are you a boy or a girl? The answer is no, I will give you the answer. even towards the end, your “praise” is “no, I will give you the answer. You earned this answer, but it is given to you by me.” Disobeying makes the world frightening and confusing and difficult, but beautiful in a world devoid of flavour.
Not just a gendered insult, either. The nameless voice that directs the player’s actions is supposed to be a hateful, abusive monster, and when the game’s designers asked themselves “okay, what’s the most degrading, dehumanising thing this voice could possibly do to the player?”, the answer they came up with was “deliberately misgender them”.
Played it both ways — one where I implicitly obeyed everything and the other where I defied wherever I could.
Both endings are abrupt and without any sort of contextual resolution. When you obey, you’re praised and you’re given a clear landscape and what appears to be a coin (so a reward), but with the clear knowledge everything is at the behest of the voice, who is so very pleased to own you. When you play the game defyingly, the voice that smugly tells you that it will make you beg ends up being the one that begs at the end. “Why do you hate me? I loved you.” “Where will you go? Will you stay close?” You’re given the choice between going and staying. If you choose to go, you’re given an unending corridor to walk through filled with the colorful glitchy distortion obscuring everything. It ends as you walk down it.
On one hand, you’re given the world you know, with all your needs met, but none of the will. On the other hand, you’re given a world of opportunity that’s entirely yours but it’s undefined, unknown, and unending.
It’s definitely an emotional experience.
im not ashamed to admit that id let 26 year old Joe Biden hit it
id let 71 year old joe biden hit it and youre lying if you say you wouldnt
