STOP WHATEVER THE FUCK YOU ARE DOING. THIS IS IMPORTANT SHIT.
I do not care who you are, what you are, who you desire to be or what you like. To put it simple: as long as you are human, i will grant you the best wishes, including safety, a full belly, fresh water, a shelter and a place where you can feel at home. There are STILL people in this world, who aren’t in this position right now, and this is more important then someone not recognizing your gender or how much your neighbour is smoking. THIS is the real deal - you know why?
BECAUSE THESE PEOPLE HELPED SOLIDERS STAY ALIVE BY GIVING THEM INFORMATION, TRANSLATING AND THEREBY PISSING OF TERRORISTS, RISKING THEIR LIFES AND THE LIFES OF THEIR FAMILY.
These people could die at any moment, and the only reason they did so, was to believe in the USA and what they represent. I am not an american citizen, neither do i ever want to be, but for some, its more then a weird concept, or a reason to get drunk - but a priviledge, because it’s fucking saying that they can stay alive.
This is the LEAST a country could do to help the less fortunate, striving for a better future, especially since the soildiers think so too - they gave valuable information, and put their life on the line, so that complete stangers can survive. I personally wouldn’t have the guts to do that, honestly.
And yes Sir(i hope he is a Sir, if not, please Queen, make it happen!) John Oliver shows us, that a DONKEY filed an application for a immigration process, and was accepted 8 MONTHS later. Yet Mohammed needed THREE AND A HALF YEARS for the SAME PROCESS.
Land of the Free? ….
Disclaimer: This is NOTHING against the American people, nor Donkeys. This is just a video about something that makes me very angry, and i hope a lot of diffrent people too. Maybe enough to change the world and help to change this Situation. See it as a signal boost, or … but i couldn’t let this fade away into nothing. I am (sadly) not in the position to do something about this.. But if i have learned something about the magic powers of the internet - its that things can go viral, and if things go viral, many, many people post their Feelings and Thoughts about it. Maybe we can make this happen - for every translator out there, to show our solidarity, share our feelings and get people to watch it that CAN DO something about it. For me, personally, its unberable that the US-Immigration Center thinks, a Donkey Life is more worth than human lifes, especially if you see how republicans fight for anti-abortion laws. Even more unberable than that is, that i feel helpless - i want to do something, but i have no money and no status to do so.
people who breeze through character customization in just a minute or two scare me because i need at least 3-4 hours to make sure my character looks fresh as hell
Depending on which kind of character you are talking about: Sims takes about 10-40 minutes, a roleplay character about an hour, if i make a homepage for him/her it will even take longer, .. minimum 4 hours. Since i’ve never played dugons and dragons - i don’t know how long it would take me to make a character. A character in a book will even take longer then that. I create a kind of diary and timeline for them, write about memorable days, crashes, accidents, a whole life - with diagrams, unsolved questions, pet peeves, quriks, a whole profile of their body (scars, bruises, deformities, with reason) possible love interests (i.e. their wish-partner, or wish qualities), beliefs and so one. This can take up to a month, in some cases (really beloved characters) even up to 4 months. The Devil is in the Details.
If anyone would react that way, the world would be a better place. Yet if you do such a thing in germany, you will be fined, no one would think about it twice - they would think its a prank call and hang up before you can even say “i need help” Great dispatcher!
