Some kind of pseudo-event going on in Destiny Ninja. At least it ain’t the collecting thing. THAT one drives me nuts.
*can’t wait to see what Nori’s greeting look like*

This was that bonus gacha story thing… and… either my app is screwed up or the story really is cut short for no good reason. I mean, it was starting to get rather hot there… then the screen went black and when I tapped the screen, it went back to the gacha page.
The hell happened?
I have no earthly idea what is with that banner but that was creepy as heck, I tell you.
Because Russians are amazing ballet dancers.
Why ballet? Because I say so. I don’t care this proves wrong in the future.
I was gonna post both Yakov and Ivan, but… the library is closing soon and I’m not confident I can finish and scan Ivan before then, so I’m quickly scanning and posting this just in case.
HOLD THE PHONE HOW AM I JUST HOW SEEING THIS?????
Because I’m not the most popular person on Tumblr :P
My stuff rarely gets around XD
Commercial for Bunmeido Castella, the castella commercial Pierrot was talking about in Yakitate!Japan.
I wonder if hand-mixing the cake would cause the cake to have a different texture… As well as the wooden box being used to bake as opposed to metal cake pan.
*ponders just HOW the original Castella looks like considering that it was more or less meant to be bread, not cake*

Overheard in Gaza: This is An Actual Headline
"Their God changes the path of our Rockets in mid-Air" comment from a Gaza Terrorist.
Am Yisrael Chai.
I’m sorry, but a “Gaza terrorist”?
Isn’t Israel the one using illegal gasses, bombing hospitals and homes, and killing over 500 civilians (over 100 children) and injuring thousands? Shouldn’t Israel be labeled a terrorist as well?
I don’t know what Palestine or Israel troops do or not do to each other, but seriously. It did not say that everyone who lives in Gaza is a terrorist, you know. It said “a terrorist who happens to be in/from Gaza”. There’s a difference.
I don’t doubt that there are crazy people out there who take advantage of the war to make it even worse. It’s not like we know exactly what places the terrorist groups go to, do we?
One of the oldest Christian settlements in the Middle East, present since the time of Christ, is being attacked by extremist group ISIS. They are told to pay a solid gold tax, convert to Islam, leave with nothing, or be killed by the sword.Christ have mercy. Tell me, if Christians are so “intolerant”,why haven’t we heard anything about them forcing people to either convert, pay a tax they likely couldn’t afford, or leave the place their family had been in for 2000 years with nothing but the clothes on their backs or be killed? Where is the media outrage? Can you imagine if Christians were doing this to Muslims? Awful hard to “coexist” when one party isn’t interested in doing so.
This seems like karma because Christians actually did this too. Back in the day if you were not Christian they would either force you to convert or kill you for being a non believer. I’m not saying that ISIS is in the right, by all means they need to be stopped. But I can’t help but find it interesting that the tables have turned. In one part of the world at least.
Oh please. “Karma” would indicated that the Christians currently being persecuted had anything whatsoever to do with persecuting Muslims. And anyway, when in recent memory have Christians done anything like this? Please don’t say “the Crusades” because that was way more about the political power than anything religious. They persecuted Eastern Christians just as much.
Oh, no, the Muslims are just doing the things they have been doing since their establishment. The prophet Muhammad expelled Jews and Christians who were sharing the city he came to live in and eventually took control over way back when Islam first established itself as a religion.
Whereas, you know, Christians have been persecuted since… I dunno, day 1? By the Jewish authorities, then by the Romans, etc etc etc.
Karma my foot =__=
Excuse me he expelled them after they broke a treaty they had with him and aided his enemies. Expulsion was not an uncommon punishment for traitors.
They were specifically the Jews of Khaibar.
And please don’t go assuming Muslims forced people to convert. It is stated in thr Quran that there is no compulsion in religion. Those who followed a different religion had to pay a tax (if they could). And before you say anything, remember Muslims have to pay a different tax as part of their religion called a zakat (2.5% of all assets) to be given to the poor. It was collected by a government agency and distributed among the poor.
Google the Spanish Inquisition and read what the Christians did to the Muslims and Jews after the reconquista. Those who did not flee to North Africa (the Jews fled in order to live under Muslim rule) were tortured and forced to convert to Christianity or killed (look at the pictures from that period to see the sort of devices used to torture Muslims and Jews.. There is even something similar to water boarding. Funny how that came back around to be used on Muslims in Iraq). Even those who converted were not assimilated into society. They called them special names (something like moor-christian and Jewish-christian to indicate their origins).
If that’s directed to me, hey, I’m not stupid. I know what the Qur’an says. I know why Muhammad expelled the Jews. Unless it’s late at night and you were tired and pissed.
I was being sarcastic, but I guess I wasn’t clear.
What I meant is that these extremist groups read the same Qur’an and read the same Hadits as the peaceful Muslim people, but take the verses out of context and twist them to suit their purposes. Hence “following the things they have always been doing”. That’s the sarcasm.
The person who mentioned karma was, just like you, thinking of the Crusades and Inquisition as “Christian” acts. They were NOT. They NEVER were. The people of the Inquisition were as much Christians as the terrorists who bombed buildings are Muslim. Muslims don’t force people to convert? Neither do Christians. If the inquisitors were Christians, then the terrorists who force their hostages to say the syahadat at gunpoint are Muslims too.
It’s always bad when religion is mixed in with power play and politics and state. And when it does, the religion slides into disorder. The day Christianity became the official religion of the Roman Empire was the beginning of centuries of the corruption of the Bible’s teaching and insanity in “the church”.
As the person above me said, this persecution has nothing to do with the Inquisition or the Crusades. If you want me to bring up a similar topic:
^Nobu talking about the Enryakuji warrior-monks.
It’s the same situation right here. Not so much the clothing part, but it’s still the same idea: the religion is just a cover and an excuse for a corrupt group to commit all sorts of dastardly deeds.
And of course every religion has their brand of weird denominations and those don’t count either.
