Sensitive Plant

Mimosa pudica

"Pudica" is the Latin word for "shy" or "bashful," which is an apt description of the sensitive "Touch-Me-Not." Native to South and Central America, this shade-lover often grows as a weed under trees and shrubs. It is popular among collectors as a specimen plant worldwide, because of its unique sensitivity to touch.

The foliage retracts when touched to prevent consumption by herbivores, and it also exhibits nyctinastic movement, meaning circadian rhythms affect the leaves to close at night, and re-open during the day. 

This trait is present in many other members of the legume family as well.

the buugeng is a type of s-staff.
to the best of my knowledge, it is used to engage in geometric visual warfare

Accurate.

GEOMETRIC VISUAL WARFARE.

No but can you imagine how distracting and disconcerting it’d be to go up against someone with a weapon like that
You wouldn’t know where the fuck to look and you’d only figure out which part to focus on when it’s buried in your gut

can someone tell me why the fuck d&d have made the choice to have margaery ignorant of joffrey’s murder when the whole fucking point is that she helps plan it to protect herself as well as to give her more leverage over her husband (she would have more control over 8 year old tommen than sociopathic 14 year old joffrey) and now she’s acting all bewildered and like she’s cursed

no

no

margaery creates her fate margaery is a player she isn’t played there’s real trust and honesty between margaery and olenna and olenna would not act without her consent because that’s what makes them different from the lannisters

what the fuck are d&d doing

I like how Game of Thrones writers think rape is cooler than sex. This is the second time they’ve turned a sex scene into rape.

straight boys think girls can’t take compliments, and that’s ridiculous cause i’ve seen so many girls compliment each other, i’ve seen conversations & friendships blossom from girls complimenting each other in line, on the street, at school waiting for the bus, pretty much anywhere.

the problem is straight boys think sexual harassment & assault are compliments.
