So apparently my college is still using an photo of me that they took for a newsletter 3 years ago. My sister alerted me to the fact that it was on the front page of the website today. I look super creepy in the picture and can’t stand it, LOL.

I actually thought this was pretty funny. Guess TC didn’t think so because it didn’t get pushed to the HP or social but I still really liked this hah hah hah.

"Joaquin Phoenix’s Commodus in Gladiator was certainly an inspiration for my characterization of Joffrey, that had a big impact, the smirk. It’s interesting sometimes  when an audience can empathize with a villain. But to get completely lost in it, it’s exciting just to be intrinsically evil and not to have a speck of good or humanity in their bones."- Jack Gleeson  (x)

Alternate to Jaime’s golden hand

If you’ve ever had a goal (creative types might use the term “dream”) that you’ve wanted more than anything else—you’d practically kill for it—and you’ve come infinitesimally close to accomplishing it, then you’ve felt this high. It feels like uncovering diamonds in the rough, only the precious gems are your own thoughts and the rough is ebbing away as the hours pass. First you feel singular moments of clarity. This is me. I’m finally who I wanted to be. It’s happening. Then shards of euphoria creep into your heart every hour or so, then more often. Each heartbeat becomes an ember. Before long, your heart is a bellowing flame bearing light and life. You smile constantly because tight lips can’t contain the roaring blaze within.

I felt this good when I had only gotten close. I can’t begin to conceptualize what it must feel like to actually make it. How could someone who feels that every morning—the people who work at top 10 and even top 50 websites, successful fiction writers, and other people who have done great things and don’t necessarily have to work a “real job” for a living—ever need to douse their inner fire with the ill effects of alcohol?

A Guycot Chain Rifle, circa 1878 

External octagonal barrel with round base, moveable internal barrel in 6 mm calibre. Long, magazine/action with safety lever on the side, on top gate catch with simple sights. Magazine capacity 100 shots, lock mechanism not adjusted. Butt with iron, removable plate. Metal parts patinated and spotted, front sling swivel attached. Length 102 cm. 

This revolutionary rifle with a magazine capacity even remarkable in our times was patented in Germany and Great Britain in 1879 by P. Gay, a French engineer and his partner H. Guenot. The rest of the story of this unusual weapon which was only produced in small numbers unfortunately remains a secret as there are no more historical facts at all. 

When using the double-action trigger the firing pin is pulled back, the magazine chain moved to discharge position and the moveable interior barrel is pushed over the moveable chamber. Then the firing pin is released and pushes through a hole in the bottom of the load unit hitting the pellet inside the cartridge. So theoretically it is only the trigger finger of the shooter that determines the rate of fire.
