tornfeathers replied to your post: Boy I sure do love when Tumblr fear mongers about…
The only fear water thing I’ve seen is a joking one. o,o I’d listen… usually when weird “facts” pop up I go look it uplol
I always research any post that utters the phrase “SPREAD THIS” or “SHARE THIS” because I immediately don’t believe it at all ever. And usually the shit on it is false.
I tested Walmart’s brand of bottled water and I was shocked to see they sell the most toxic water ever. I tested for Total Dissolved Solids using a TDS meter and the number I got was 271. THAT IS THE MOST TOXIC WATER I HAVE EVER SEEN. Even NYC tap water TDS score is 39. Poland Spring is 42. The water is not even drinkable. I think it’s Criminal to even make profits from selling this water filled with sodium fluoride and who knows what else is in that. 500 ppm (parts per million) is the EPA Maximum but even though the FDA is corrupt their recommended is 000, which is pure.
THE ONLY BOTTLED WATER THAT READS 000 IS DUANEreade/Walgreens ‘NICE’ branded water.
PLEASE SHARE THIS INFO ALONG.- anonymous
Damn wally mart… Damn… :/
yet another reason to hate walmart.
I think I’m going to be sick…
Some handy dandy links because ya’ll need to do a little more reading.
Boop: a great report by the World Health Organization citing a lot of research on why water-without-minerals (Aka, 000 TDS) is potentially unhealthy.
Univ. of St. Francis report in 2005 stating Wal-Mart’s Great Value drinking water contained less TDS than what is listed in the photo. (It’s in fact, 0 in the report)
Not to mention that Total Dissolved Solids includes things like minerals and potential vitamins that the body needs or is actually beneficial.
Also, I’ve scoured Google and could find no evidence that New York’s tap water scored that low, nor could I find any evidence at all in this post that Wal-Mart’s water tested this high ever.
Not saying it’s not possibly unhealthy, but for real if Dasani water can test in the 1200’s (It’s in that report! :>) TDS, then i’m pretty sure 270 isn’t going to kill you.
Christ any water can kill you, there is such a thing as water poisoning, just saying.
Boy I sure do love when Tumblr fear mongers about everything, including the drinking water.
=| I wish I had more followers just so I could post some fucking facts and PEOPLE WOULD LISTEN.
Is it really too fucking much to ask for people to stop putting noncontent in the pairing tags?
Is that really just too fucking hard for people to understand?
I don’t really give a fuck about your feels for the pairing or you liveblogging reactions to current arcs or whatever. Because people get that, they really do, and the fifth time you put it in the tag it’s really annoying. There are tags for that. Please use those tags.
Don’t clog the pairing tag with this stuff.
I’m begging you.
A mashup I created using the Imagine Dragons song “Radioactive” and the Daft Punk song “Harder Better Faster”. Follow me at DeclanTumbles.tumblr.com for more mashups.
Holy shit bawls
Just a pool, disguised as a pond, with a trampoline instead of a diving board.
I wrote a paper about these kinds of pools several years ago for a class when they were just prototypes. These pools have a natural filtration system that run based on the plants that are in the pool that give the water nutrients that allow it to not only be crystal clear, but you are also able to drink the water because it becomes so clean. And the best part is that once the initial filtration system is installed and calibrated, it maintains itself and eliminates the need for chlorine or constant maintenance like salt water pools.
I fucking love DND.
One time our party bluffed a fireplace.
It was so amazing the DM let us level up 2 nights in a row.
A tongue of lava oozes out from beneath the recently cooled crust of a flow. The silica contained within, reflects the early morning sunlight, giving its surface a glassy sheen.

It’s very meta and clever and all that, but it leaves a sour taste in my mouth. I highly doubt that the devs of this game are in debt over what they made; there are plenty of very successful, profitable games that were pirated to hell and back.
I think the biggest problem with the gaming industry right now is the fact that developers focus far too much on profit rather than the passion and creative vision of making something.
When games have budgets in the millions of dollars I’m not shocked that they focus on profit.
See you can make money without being greedy:
These were some of the responses to this article where the game devs made a game development simulator and chose to make it a learning experience for game pirates by having their virtual game studios fail due to pirating. Definitely read the article.
I have a big issue with people who think that games just come out of developers butts.
The trick this studio did is not preventing people from playing the game; it is just preventing them from having a complete game experience and makes FINISHING the game impossible. They are trying to encourage people to buy the game and if doing that “leaves a bad taste in [your] mouth” then you really do not understand how bad piracy is in the industry. Developers REALLY hate using DRM. It’s really aggravating and very distracting to the people actually PAYING. If there are more alternatives to anti-piracy like what Game Dev Tycoon did, then I think it can create a very interesting gaming experience. They could have done something much MUCH more horrible.
By the way, 10% was not the pirated number. 10% was his PROFIT. That means out of all the sales, only 10% of people actually threw $8 at this game. Team Meat is a rarity in the industry, just like Minecraft, and Castle Crashers. A majority of indie companies do not see this success, and using them as successful examples is unfair to most indies who are INSANELY lucky to break into the 100K of sold games. Add pirating into that, and a general apathy of “it happens, why stop it, free publicity” and you have the case above: devs trying to curb piracy, boost sales, and not go under because making a game is more expensive than people understand. Because game design is a trade skill, worth more than minimum wage, and the cost of software, living, office space, and then marketing your game on top of legal fees and accounting fees? Yeah, it adds up and there is a reason popular games have multi-million dollar budgets and teams of 50+.
Yes, pirating can be good for getting the developer’s name out there, but they need SOME profit to make more games. Keep in mind we are talking about indies who don’t have MILLIONS OF DOLLARS to start up. So people that complain when game developers do tactics like what Game Dev Tycoon did or complain about being nickle and dimed in Free-to-Play or complain about ads, should probably keep in mind that devs need money to keep living, too, and need money to keep making games for people to play.
The developers who can do things like post their games for free on the Pirate Bay and take other risks like that usually have a little money to side. I’m not blaming them or saying their stupid or they shouldn’t do it. I applaud them for trying things out like that to see if it does work. At the same time, however, devs asking for $1 or $10 isn’t much. If you took the time to download the game and play it in the first place, you could at least toss a $1 their way. I also TOTALLY understand that it sucks not having enough money to buy a game when it comes out. I TOTALLY understand not having a spare dollar in your bank account. I also understand some games not being available in your area/country. So if these issues arise you can either wait until the ability to purchase comes your way or…pirate. So I get it and I don’t want this to come across as a complete “PIRATING IS EVIL” rant. It would just be nice if you donated or bought the game later WHEN YOU CAN.
So what does my rant boil down too? It costs money to make games. Yes, I am a game developer. Yes, I’m trying to start my own indie company with a group of friends.
We’ve been sitting down and trying to figure how much it costs to get everything started. It’s $30,000 for JUST computers, computer upgrades (for the two that have real work machines), and necessary software required for just a team of five. That’s not including legal startup fees, miscellaneous legal fees, taxes, website, convention tours (con tickets, booth rents, shwag, hotel, plane tickets/gas, renting equipment, etc), general marketing, SALARIES SO WE CAN SURVIVE WHILE WE MAKE OUR GAMES, music, sound effects, etc. We definitely plan to make cuts after we get a full scope and can better determine where we can cut. The first thing that ALWAYS gets cut from the budget is the salaries for the main developers and other insane people who are willing to work for potential royalties. Smart INDIE developers go in not expecting to make a huge amount of money, however, they have the goal of at least making what they spent back and a little extra so they can start their next game.
Most indies want to create a game that has “passion and creative vision”, but lack the money to create what they need. We don’t want a trip to the Bahama’s. We don’t want sports car. We just want to build our next game.
I really want to make Calli human rn.
Because I want to cover her in tattoos.
hrgagahg…I already know she’d have full sleeves, back and prolly her neck and collarbones.
I mean yeah I could just draw it but it wouldn’t feel as satisfying, y’know? …No?
sometimes I make things more complicated than they are.
