I’m going to be deleting this tumblr over the next couple of weeks. I woke up to find that my porn blogs were deleted and that tumblr has explicitly stated in their “here’s what happened” email that they aren’t interested in resolving this matter.

interestingly enough, they havent removed any of the original content that I uploaded through those accounts, which would seem like the most obvious first step to take. 

Given that I have no recourse to account reinstatement, to refute the absurd reason for its deletion or to the removal of my own content, I cannot in good faith continue to be a part of a community which would profit from my work whilst excluding and silencing its creator. 

Thank you for your time.

A fun game is feeling like things will get better, and then having a conversation with your ex, to remind you of what happened last time you thought things might get better. I wish I could scrub all the shit and failure out of me and be the person my girls deserve.

Funny and bizarre German animal names
The German language is famous for some really long nouns (Donaudampfschiffahrtsgesellschaftskapitän comes to mind). This is because German nouns, verbs, prepositions and adjectives are like lego bricks; you can stick them together in almost any way to create new words that encapsulate new concepts. This gives the language a special ability to name just about anything. You could call it the German language’s lego brick-like quality, or Legosteineigenschaft (see what I just did there?).

But why does German rely on such an elaborate process to name things as simple as squirrels? When broken down into their separate components, the names of familiar animals mutate into bizarre new creatures.

The Uncanny X-Tiere

Comics are full of heroes with names like super, wonder, iron, ultra, bat or cat followed by -man, -woman, -girl or -boy. A lot of German animal names work the same way, where Tier – the word for animal – is preceded by a word describing that animal’s “super power”.

  • Stinktier – stink animal (skunk)

  • Faultier – lazy animal (sloth)

  • Gürteltier – belt animal (armadillo)

  • Murmeltier – mumbling animal (groundhog)

  • Schnabeltier – beak animal (platypus)

  • Maultier – mouth animal (mule)

  • Trampeltier – trampling animal (bactrian camel). The verb trampeln means to trample or tread upon, whereas the noun Trampel is a clumsy oaf.

Sometimes suffixes get more specific than -tier, but still tend to describe the wrong animal:

  • Schildkröte – shield toad (tortoise)

  • Waschbär – wash bear (raccoon)

  • Nacktschnecke – naked snail (slug)

  • Fledermaus – flutter mouse (bat)

  • Seehund – sea dog (seal)

  • Tintenfisch – ink fish (squid)

  • Truthahn – threatening chicken (turkey). Trut is onomatopoeic for the trut-trut-trut cluck of a turkey, but it’s also been hypothesized that the name comes from the Middle German droten which means “to threaten”.

No, I’m Pretty Sure That’s A Pig

Swine seem to be a popular yardstick in German animal taxonomy.

  • Schweinswal – pig whale (porpoise)

  • Seeschwein – sea pig (dugong). Not to be confused with the Seekuh, or sea cow, known in English as a manatee.

  • Stachelschwein – spike pig (porcupine). The English word is actually just as literal; porcupine sounds a lot like “pork spine”.

  • Wasserschwein – water pig (capybara)

  • Meerschweinchen – ocean piglet (guinea pig). The ending -chen denotes something small. Add it to the end of Schwein and you get a little pig, or piglet. Since the stems Meer and Wasser are often interchangeable, it’s most likely that Meerschweinchen actually means little capybara.

Just Plain Weird

I’d like to end this list by giving one animal a category all to itself: the humble squirrel.

Eichhörnchen:

  • little oak horn: Eiche (oak tree) + Horn (horn) + -chen (little)
  • oak croissant: Eiche (oak tree) + Hörnchen (croissant)

alternate names:

  • Eichkätzchen (regional name) and Eichkatzerl (Austria) – oak kitten

Calling a squirrel a “tree kitten” is reasonably literal, but where does “little oak horn” come from? It seems that the answer comes down to a misplaced h: Eichhörnchen comes from the Old and Middle German eichorn, which has nothing to do with oak trees or horns. In this case, the eich comes from the ancient Indo-Germanic word aig, which means agitated movement, combined with the now obsolete suffix -orn. Somewhere in history a superfluous h was added (along with the diminutive -chen ending) but the original meaning remained. Today, Hörnchen is a category of rodents that includes all squirrels, chipmunks, groundhogs, prairie dogs and flying squirrels.

Keep an eye on this spot for an upcoming post where we’ll delve deeper into the animal kingdom: branching out to birds, insects, reptiles, fishes and any other mammals we find crawling around.

"people in the hp fandom are trying to prove that snape is a bad person"

i don’t need to prove anything just read the series again and highlight any time he used his powers as a teacher to bully children

People in HP fandom still struggling to understand characters that don’t adhere to “Goody” and “Baddie” tropes years after book series concluded, study finds.

"I just don’t get it" one fan exclaims. "He’s obviously a goodie, because of the good things he did, but then I remember that he did bad things too. My head hurts. I need a nap"

People who have read other books remain hopeful that the HP fandom will join them in the understanding that characters can be more complex than simple morality tropes, but “realise they’re fighting the entire American movie industry on this bitch”

…and can we talk about how fucking adorable it is that Tumblr still thinks petitions are a thing that has any traction in the real world? As though a heartfelt letter from some tweenshit in Iowa who identifies as a genderbent Sonic the hedgehog is going to change the world?

its like being back in middle school and learning about democracy and voting for the first time, like wow, what I think will be in some way respected by the world.

Surprise, Motherfucker!

Welcome to the world. You don’t matter. Statistically speaking? You will never, ever matter. The most you can do is look after yourself and the people around you, and if the opportunity arises, be the first in the street with a Molotov.

p.s. Dress nicely. AP loves a well-dressed rioter.
