Aang deals with cultural appropriation - (x)

People need to stop reblogging this without the rest of the comic :^)

Part 1: Aang has a negative reaction to people who mistakenly hurt his feelings but had good intentions.

Part 2: Aang calms down and acknowledges that those people’s intentions were good and instead of being upset offers to educate and inform those people and SHARES his culture.

Good message there.

DIY 4 Ingredient Poison Apple Recipe from Simply Delicious Food. Apples, corn syrup, water, sugar and gel food coloring. I like this site because they have the best conversion site. For more unique Halloween party food go here.
I have never used gel food coloring.I usually use paste food coloring (never liquid) because it’s more vivid and lasts FOREVER. You can get it at Michaels using a coupon.
But here is Martha Stewart’s Foof Coloring 101
Liquid Gel
Liquid gel gives a deep, rich color without thinning and blends well. It is available online and in specialty stores.
Liquid
Liquid is the most familiar form of food coloring. It gives the weakest color compared to other types of food coloring and, because of its liquid consistency, it will thin out whatever it is being mixed with.
Gel-Paste
Gel-paste gives deeper, more vivid colors than gel or liquid. It is very concentrated and should be used in very small quantities.
Powdered Food Coloring
Powdered food coloring is very concentrated. It can be combined with sugar to decorate cookies, and with lemon extract to paint onto iced cookies (just roll cookies in it to color them).

xkcd: Wikipedia article titles with the right syllable stress pattern to be sung to the tune of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme song. (Here’s the song, for reference.)
All of these titles are examples of trochaic tetrameter, which is one of the most common English meters (a trochee is a foot consisting of STRONG-weak and tetrameter is four feet per line). Another example is Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, although that has a deficient last foot, but you can sing any of these titles to that tune as well if you just double the last note.
Trochaic tetrameter creates a strong feeling of sing-song “poem-ness” in English. Most Shakespearean characters, for example, speak in iambic pentameter (weak-STRONG, five feet per line), which sounds more natural, but a few speak in trochaic tetrameter for dramatic effect. For example, MacBeth and Lady MacBeth speak in iambic pentameter, which gives the effect of talking normally: 

Methought I heard a voice cry “Sleep no more!Macbeth does murder sleep,” the innocent sleep,Sleep that knits up the ravell’d sleave of care,
Out, damned spot! out, I say!—One: two: why,then, ‘tis time to do’t.—Hell is murky!—Fie, mylord, fie! a soldier, and afeard? What need wefear who knows it, when none can call our powerto account?—Yet who would have thought the oldman to have had so much blood in him?

But the witches speak in trochaic tetrameter, which makes them seem like they’re delivering an incantation: 

Double, double toil and trouble;Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.
Fair is foul, and foul is fair

Previous xkcd on poetry: metrical foot fetish, ballad meter, trochaic fixation. Language Log also has a long, interesting post on meter. 

My favorite thing about this is picturing all of the people sitting alone in their homes singing “SAN DIEGO CITY COUNCIL!” to the tune of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

“SAN-D-IEGO-CITY-COUNCIL!”

Took me a second to realize
fullten
didn’t post this.

I liked this post yesterday and now I’m watching it because clearly it has very good role models for young men. 

It is also a kind of Korean superstition/tradition to do that for any wallet you give as a gift because otherwise you are condemning them to bad luck with money. So, not really a man-specific thing. Not sure what show this is though, BUT THAT’S THE MASTER’S SUN LADY.

That is a fantastic superstition/tradition, thanks for telling me, and its ‘fated to love you,’
