icanbeatreeman asked: What are important differences between Oblivion Ring and Banishing Light?

When Banishing Light ETB, it creates a duration effect. That means that if it exiles something, even if for whatever reason it loses all of its ability, once it leaves the battlefield, the exiled card is returned. It was one effect.

Oblivion Ring has two effects. An ETB effect, and a Leave effect. If the O-Ring is destroyed before its first effect resolves, the card is exiled indefinitely.

The other notable change is that Banishing Light can only target opponent’s things. This, it has been said, is to prevent people from accidentally selecting their own things on MTGO.

Could you demonstrate a situation in which O-Ring could be destroyed before the first effect resolves resulting in a permanent exile?

If you cast Naturalize in response to the first trigger being put on the stack is a common example.

The ring will be destroyed, and the “leaves the battlefield” trigger will be put on the stack ABOVE the exile trigger. This means it will resolve first, and do nothing because nothing was exiled yet.

Then the ETB trigger resolves, exiling something. Which happens to be for good, because there’s no longer a leaning the battlefield trigger to bring it back.

Transphobic U.S. Congressman edits Wikipedia to include hate speech for Laverne Cox

vivianair:

fuckyeahlavernecox:

wdya:

Someone with an IP address sourcing to the House of Representatives just edited the Orange Is the New Black Wikipedia page with the telling summary of “not a woman.”

That’s right, this Congressman edited out a sentence hailing the show for including “the first ever women-in-prison narrative to be played by a real transgender woman.”  What did he replace it with?  Hate speech.

The Congressman called Cox a “man pretending to be a woman,” and linked to an offensive article by National Review Online aptly titled “Laverne Cox Is Not a Woman.”

The change has since been reversed and the IP address has been banned from editing Wikipedia for a month, but you can see the original edit he made in the link above.

The change was spotted by a Twitter bot which tweets out links any time a Congressional IP address edits Wikipedia.

Spread this like wildfire.

(articles on The A.V. Club, Yahoo, and NY Daily News)

oh hell fucking no.

There’s also edits for the “tr*nny”, “Gender Identity Disorder”, and “Camp Trans” page. TWEFs in Congress.

Unflattering selfies r the wave

Okay I still get asked what I use in my hair. Here is what I use in my hair. I had an old hair post but I use mostly different products now so time for an update. 
I will not talk about what hair dyes I use because you can read all about it in the September Issue of Teen Vogue which is out right now! I AM BLACKMAILING YOU INTO SUPPORTING ME. 
I’m also trying out new secret shampoo & conditioner so I can’t talk about that either. Wow sorry. Anyway. 
I do not style my hair at all, it just falls whatever way it wants. I just condition it using Kerastase Oleo Relax Serum. I apply this as leave-in conditioner and then also just whenever I feel like it. Mid-shaft down to the ends, not near the roots. 
I hate clean hair so I spray this sea salt spray liberally after I wash it. Just a little bit of texture. 
I don’t need mousse or styling products to make it voluminous or whatever, but when I choose to use them, I use Bumble & Bumble Hair Gel, Oribe Mousse or Dove Mousse. I think the Dove mousse is a more practical buy but I also feel like it always disperses too much all of the time so there’s a lot of wasted product. 
I enjoy my own filth so I don’t actually use dry shampoo that much either. But if I do, it’s Renee Furterer. I like Dry Conditioner a lot more. I use Oribe. 
If you are looking for a hairspray — Redken, and nothing else. This is the fashion hairspray. Backstage? They use this hairspray. Everyone uses this hairspray. Julien D’Ys probably uses this hairspray. I predict no less than 900 canisters of this hairspray will be used during NYFW alone. 
Okay I hope that was informative for you. Now you can stop asking me! Godspeed.

Why is it that people are willing to spend $20 on a bowl of pasta with sauce that they might actually be able to replicate pretty faithfully at home, yet they balk at the notion of a white-table cloth Thai restaurant, or a tacos that cost more than $3 each? Even in a city as “cosmopolitan” as New York, restaurant openings like Tamarind Tribeca (Indian) and Lotus of Siam (Thai) always seem to elicit this knee-jerk reaction from some diners who have decided that certain countries produce food that belongs in the “cheap eats” category—and it’s not allowed out. (Side note: How often do magazine lists of “cheap eats” double as rundowns of outer-borough ethnic foods?)

Yelp, Chowhound, and other restaurant sites are littered with comments like, “$5 for dumplings?? I’ll go to Flushing, thanks!” or “When I was backpacking in India this dish cost like five cents, only an idiot would pay that much!” Yet you never see complaints about the prices at Western restaurants framed in these terms, because it’s ingrained in people’s heads that these foods are somehow “worth” more. If we’re talking foie gras or chateaubriand, fair enough. But be real: You know damn well that rigatoni sorrentino is no more expensive to produce than a plate of duck laab, so to decry a pricey version as a ripoff is disingenuous. This question of perceived value is becoming increasingly troublesome as more non-native (read: white) chefs take on “ethnic” cuisines, and suddenly it’s okay to charge $14 for shu mai because hey, the chef is ELEVATING the cuisine.
