as you may or may not have known, this guy and @ScrewPain were the guys responsible for swatting the creatures. this caused a shut down of schools, leak of personal information and innocent people almost got hurt because of it.
in this time, i’ve kept an eye on spiky’s twitter and he’s swatted several innocent streamers [he posts proof and gloats about it] and plans to keep doing it. he and pain both think they’re invincible and it needs to stop.
pain said he’s going to pax and im seriously worried he’ll swat that place too, so i just want to post a warning to everyone.
i know that he is 100% serious who knows what other youtuber or innocent streamer they’ll do it to next.
EVEN IF YOU DON’T LIKE ROOSTERTEETH, SPREAD THE WORD. PEOPLE CAN BE HURT OR KILLED BECAUSE OF THIS.
ATTENTION ALL CONFUSED PEOPLE
Swatting: A new trend where a Twitch player or Livestreamer is targeted and reported to the police for being a threat. The intention is to watch the Livestreamer or Twitch player be arrested live on camera.
If you see anyone bragging that they are the culprits behind a ‘swatting’, report them immediately. Especially to the authorities.
ROOSTER TEETH HAS BEEN INFORMED THAT A THREAT HAS BEEN MADE. THEY HAVE TAKEN PRECAUTIONS. DO NOT CONTACT ROOSTER TEETH ABOUT THIS. THEY KNOW.
Please spread THIS version around so people are further informed.
So it turns out that even if I say no, if a company doesn’t like my answer, they’ll do it anyway. A big “fuck you” to poprageous, who I contacted last year, received a reply that essentially said “no I won’t pay you,” and then did it anyway 12 months later (I suppose she hoped I would forget about her?).
Before I replied to her first scummy email where she only says that she’d send me a FREE PAIR (oh WOW), I made a blog post
I had recently undergone other companies trying to do the same thing and her email reply to me was just nothing short of incredibly shitty. After seeing my post (which didn’t mention her company or anything) she thought it would be a good idea to send me an email trying to make ME feel bad that I didn’t just ASK for money for using my artwork. That it was on ME to ask about royalties, not about her fucking company to actually fairly pay artists or anything.
"I saw your post - what do u want to get paid? Let’s work out a royalty. jeeeez all u had to do was ask."
All I had to do was ask? That’s pretty hilarious, considering she asked, I said no, and she went ahead with it anyway.
Regardless, this is shit. Companies shouldn’t act like this. People using creator’s works just because they exist and feel like they should be able to is just absolutely bullshit.
The most appalling thing about this is seriously the fact that I said no and she did it anyway. I said no and she did it anyway.
This is how little most companies respect and regard artists. Thanks a lot, Cher Park.
Feel free to let her know that it’s not acceptable to pull this bullshit with her company email, firstname.lastname@example.org - please don’t be rude or anything, but this is definitely not okay and she needs to not do this to other artists in the future.
Oh yes, let me not forgot to mention: she has no trace of credit on the image, this time. She posted an instagram earlier a year ago with credit to my name, but it seems she’d rather remove it so that I not find out, I guess.
Heartbreaking Simpsons Moments 1/∞: Bart Gets an F
I never understood why it’s an F if he gets more than half out of 100? Unless it’s more than 100. If you get more than half the answers right how is it an F?
You must not be from America. Here, grading is fucked up.
Average American Grading Scale: A+- 97-100 A - 94-96 A- - 90-93 B- 80-89 C- 70-79 D- 60-69 F- 59 and under
And in some places in America it goes by a 7 point scale, so it’d be A - 100-93 B - 92-85 C - 84-78 D - 77-70 F - 69 and below
Now you understand why American kid’s feel like there’s no point to school. If you have a 100 question text, and get 79 of them correct, that’s a C. That mean’s your Average Intelligence on this particular subject. And it get’s even worse when you have only like… a 10 question quiz. If you get two wrong? that’s a B. 80 fucking %. Now tell me again why American school’s are easier?
No wait but whats the grading system in other countries?
UK Grading Scale
Below 40: F
next time you try to tell americans that we’re stupid
i’m gonna remind you
that our “average” is your “A”
#is that true? Yep I was shocked when I heard this in a different post but a Google search pulls up a ton of sites backing this up. Shit son I woulda passed College Algebra with an A in the UK. And I spent the end of the semester in perpetual fear that I would fail and have to retake the class.
And basically as an American you’re expected to get 80 or higher. Technically 70s are considered ‘average’ but there is such a level of pressure to get a B or higher, that Cs have become equal to Ds. Basically anything under 60 you might as well gotten a 0, and anything between 60-80 is considered practically failing. So basically schools have to be designed to make sure majority of students are getting 80s or higher on specific topics, which means you’re spending all your time going over a few choice facts a billion times and there is very little room to teach anything else. Which explains why American schools are of such low quality. The insane demand on the students ends up wrecking their education. Not only do you not have time to teach them anything, but they end up hating learning. Even outside of school your life is dedicated to memorizing these few dumb facts because your homework ends up taking hours of your time. A teacher from one subject says they expect you to spend 2 hours every night on their homework. And if you’re studying 5 subjects and they all demand that 2 hours? Good fucking luck, because if you don’t have straight all 80s or higher you’re not getting into a good college and college degrees have somehow become the minimum requirement for getting jobs.
I spent most of my junior year of high school in a state of constant panic that I was going to get a C in Honors Physics much less fail the class. If I got a C on my report card, I was grounded until the next one. I lost count of the times I’d wake up at five in the morning to take the early bus to go in for zero hour before school actually started for the day
File this under the exact reason so many Americans detest going to school.
Have you heard? Dreamworks Animation and Studio Mir, the company behind Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra, announced Thursday they will work together to produce up to four new animated television series in the next four years.
This is huge both because a Korean company has never partnered on such a large scale with an American animation group, and because these shows will be created in 2D animation. I’m ecstatic!
It’s great to see that Korean animation is being taken seriously enough to be treated as a creative equal rather than just as a source of cheap production. Studio Mir’s work is undeniably beautiful, andif Mir’s talent can be combined with the storytelling prowess exhibited in How to Train Your Dragon 2, I will be a very happy customer.
oh my god, i seriously hope dreamworks will help with more than just the animation because jesus, an Avatar series with the company that wrote and visualised Rise of the Guardians, How to train your dragon and Kung Fu Panda? Holy FUCK
woah there we don’t know for sure it’s an Avatar series but WOAH
Hey guys, this is Kendall Jones, she’s a cheerleader from Texas who spends her free time slaughtering endangered species including (but not limited to): lions, cheetahs,elephants, zebras, hippos, giraffes etc. Her actions are not only disgusting superficially (as you can see the bloodlust in her pictures) but she’s hunting endangered species and pushing more and more of them closer to extinction. She does this in hopes of getting a TV show, followers on Twitter, and because she’s straight insane.
YOU CAN SIGN IT IF YOU LIVE IN ANY COUNTRY, IT’S VERY QUICK AND IT WON’T ASK YOU TO VERIFY YOUR EMAIL OR ANYTHING. PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS & EVEN IF THE PETITION HITS 50K PLEASE KEEP SIGNING.
you guys know how much i love animals please sign this. please please please sign it.
I was sent a message asking me to look into this. As far as I can see, it’s legitimate — but I recommend reading the article about her on Slate.com.
As it points out, part of the draw of this post is that Jones is a young female — if she were an older man (who fits the “game hunter” stereotype), would she receive as much attention? The petition against her has over 154,000 signatures. A similar petition against Melissa Bachman (another hunter) had over 135,000 signatures on a petition against her.
A petition to actually stop the practice of hunting lions for trophies? It closed with only 2,898 signatures. People seem to want to stop the person, not the deed. And, as much as I personally disapprove of hunting for sport, it’s worth noting that Jones hasn’t broken any laws. All of her hunts have been conducted in a manner consistent with the rules and regulations in the areas in which she hunted. And the meat from many of the animals is given to locals to eat.
In some cases, she didn’t kill the animal at all. The rhino photo? That was not a kill — it was a sedation.
"The rhino was a green hunt, meaning it was darted and immobilized in order to draw blood for testing, DNA profiling, microchip ping the horn and treating a massive leg injury most likely caused by lions."
And it’s also worth noting that all of the attention that Jones has received over this has landed her a TV show that is set to air in 2015. It also resulted in threats of bodily harm and even death, which is never OK to do (facebook had to remove a page titled “Kill Kendall Jones” — I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, violence is the first response of the idiot).
okay so there’s basically like 30 long posts of stuff in my likes right so finally today i decided to go through all of them and sort out stuff i really liked and make like a giant post of all (with my comments) and hopefully it’ll brighten someones day idk c:
