I took a test on like where you are on the ‘nonverbal intimacy scale’ and the average female score is 102 and male is 93.8 and I got 56 lolololol

here it is if ya want (reblog/reply w/ what you get!!)

It’s actually the “non-verbal immediacy scale”, not “intimacy scale”, but anyway – still an interesting test. (My own score was 108, FWIW.)

oh lmao thanks. I really didn’t expect this to get more than like 4 notes anyway uhm

101 lol

54 -_- how did people get over 100 omg

I got 120 on this test and I think that’s probably due to the fact that I teach kindergarteners

75. This is interesting.

101 which makes sense because I’m an ambivert who usually tells jokes and whatnot

115

78 which doesn’t surprise me, I make an effort to appear more sociable and responsive (while my internal monologue is going “smile here no SMILE NOT LIKE THAT yes better now raise eyebrows OH GOD HE’S CRYING PAT HIS ARM yes there no its not creepy” 😂)

68. I hate talking to people unless I’m 100% comfortable with them (I can count that number on one hand!) and it’s tiring trying to fake it half the time.

91, but mostly because the questions asked applied to what happens once a conversation gets started. I’m not great at STARTING verbal interactions outside of a job setting or with people who are not intimate friends, but I respond to questions or conversation openers well and can engage from there. Otherwise I just kind of sit there feeling vaguely terrified that I’ll have to be in charge of talking.

(Also I’ve worked in service industry and trainer positions that required a lot of “fake it til ya make it” practice in engaging people in conversation and leading discussion.)

Our culture has celebrities in place of myths, and we have grief twitter instead of byzantine lore about the journey to the underworld and the proper ways of burial. When celebrities die and we mourn them in a massively public way, this is a safe way to practice mourning for our parents and our partners and our friends, to try to force ourselves to make the unthinkable familiar. 

The generational quality of this grief comes from the fact that, as the celebrities with whom we grew up die, it signals that we are at the age where people are dying, and we look ahead to the inevitable disasters, the wave that grows larger on the horizon. If our public grief is a performance, it’s a performance in the way that a disaster drill is a performance. 

Our grief at losing an icon who meant a great deal to us is a real grief but a bearable one. But that bearable grief is a test-drive for future unbearable ones. We practice together in the hope that we can be prepared, so that the idea of loss does not seem so alien. 

Complaints about the inappropriate nature of grief on social media – that it’s a circle-jerk, a joiner’s club, an obligated performance – are as defining a part of these mournings as the remembrances themselves. But to call this grief a performance is to miss the point – it’s not a performance, it’s a rehearsal. It seems right to me that grief be public, and messy, and inconvenient, that it make everyone in its path uncomfortable. 

Small amounts of discomfort, after all, increase our tolerance for large amounts of pain. Mourning celebrities who mattered to us is a way to remind ourselves that no one is spared, not even those who seemed immortal, larger than a human being with petty little organs doing their pedestrian little jobs inside their skin. Speaking things aloud removes their terror, dulls the power of their unfamiliarity. We speak this over and over to try to come to terms with something that cannot possibly be made familiar.

I understand why a lot of people hate him and sometimes I want to punch him but I really can’t bring myself to outright hate H.P. Lovecraft I mean

the man was afraid of salad.

this is officially the best lovecraft fact i have ever read in my entire life

even better than the fact that he wrote an entire essay explaining why he thought cats were better than dogs

Howard Phillips Lovecraft was an absolute trainwreck of a human being who among other things:

  • Did extensive colonial era roleplay via the mail with his penpals and even dated regular correspondence as 17– just because he could.
  • WROTE SO MANY LETTERS HE IS SECOND ONLY TO VOLTAIRE IN THE SHEER VOLUME OF CORRESPONDENCE WE HAVE FROM ANY SINGLE PERSON
  • Once sat in the same chair for 9 hours from 10 pm to 7 am because a cat was sitting on his lap and he didn’t want to disturb it.
  • Was terrified of seafood and most plants; as a result of this he lived primarily on a diet of baked beans and candy and (it has been theorized) was therefore constantly hallucinating from malnutrition.

what the fuck Lovecraft.
No wonder he wrote what he did. I knew he was a racist asshole but this is ridiculous.

“Baby I lied there’s no gala. I brought you here because of our love for art. We enjoy traveling to museums, having artsy dates and even showcasing art about our baby\ud83d\udc36 in our own home. If someone could describe our love it could only be done through a work of art. It is happy, fun, chaotic, inspiring and strong. I want to keep discovering art for the rest of my life by your side.

If I’m talking to you about antisemitism your reaction should not be “I love Jews!”. Just take what I have to say seriously and don’t try to neutralize your discomfort by proclaiming your love for us. It’s gross. 

Also, goyim, feel free to reblog (without commentary). I need you folks to see this.
