fluffmugger said: don’t mock pulp pulp is awesome

Who’s mocking them? I love them and I want to hug them a little bit because thanks to that idea I have now some thread that holds together all the scattered thoughts I had and I can finally start to plan this thing properly.

Also I want to hug you too a little bit ‘cause you’re responsible for introducing me to Pulp :p

I’ve just had a super cool idea for that writing project I’m occasionally entertaining, and I have to thank Pulp for that.

Now I only need to flesh out some things better and preferably find some beta for my silly ideas and then maybe I can finally see this thing get somewhere.

Anonymous asked: I know I'm ignorant, but can you please tell me what is the real and the causes of the gaza conflict?

fotojournalismus:

This is a great piece from New Yorker written by Rashid Khalidi, which I think worth reading, and take it as an answer to your question please. 

"What happens when you imprison 1.8 million people in a hundred and forty square miles, about a third of the area of New York City, with no control of borders, almost no access to the sea for fishermen, no real way in or out, and with drones buzzing overhead night and day — is that, eventually, the ghetto will fight back. It was true in Soweto and Belfast, and it is true in Gaza. We might not like Hamas or some of its methods, but that is not the same as accepting the proposition that Palestinians should supinely accept the denial of their right to exist as a free people in their ancestral homeland."

myers-briggs personality types

↳ INTP (The Architect)

INTPs are often thoroughly engaged in their own thoughts, and usually appear to others to be offbeat and unconventional. The INTP’s mind is a most active place, and their inward orientation can mean that they neglect superficial things like home décor or appropriate clothing. They don’t tend to bother with small talk but can become downright passionate when talking about science, mathematics, computers, or the larger theoretical problems of the universe. Reality is often of only passing interest to the Architect, as they are more interested in the theory behind it all.

INTPs are typically precise in their speech, and communicate complex ideas with carefully chosen words. They insist on intellectual rigor in even the most casual of conversations, and will readily point out inconsistencies of thought or reasoning. Social niceties may fall by the wayside for an INTP who is more interested in analyzing logic, and they may offend others by submitting their dearly held values and beliefs to logical scrutiny.
