wow I don’t touch this blog anymore but anyway if y’all wanna find me, I’m at goodthinker. I mostly have star wars/ sci fi stuff and I talk about my own characters a lot too.
Tired of having to log in and out every time you want to switch blogs?
Do you wish that you could have them all open at once?
Do you use Google Chrome as a browser?
Then here’s a solution that’s much more convenient than having two browsers open or going into incognito mode
Separate Profiles on Chrome is an easy way to keep track of all your Tumblr accounts, which is an absolute godsend for those that have a metric fuckton of roleplay accounts, like I do. It stores all your information on a separate profile, and all you have to do to access it is click on the profile name.
So here’s now it’s done (with PICTURES :’D)
Click the Wrench icon and go to your Settings
Once you’re there, scroll down till you see the Users. As you can tell, I have quite a few of them that I use, but yours will look different since you’ve only got one user.
Now click Add New User and it will open a new Chrome window
It will ask you to sign into Google, and if you have another gmail account, you can by all means go for it. It’s optional, though, so you’re free to click Skip for now
Once you’ve done one thing or another, you’ll want to go to your Settings again, and it will show your brand new user along with your original one.
So now you’ve got your user, and you can click on it and Edit it a bit, or import your bookmarks.
Now you’re free to go to Tumblr and log into your account. This saves your login information, saved passwords, cookies, what have you, on this separate profile, so now there’s no more worry about having to log out again.
Now the next time you use Chrome, there will be a new icon in the corner that shows your different profiles
Now you can do this as many other times as you want, for as many new accounts as you want.
There you have it. I hope this helps some people struggling with maintaining multiple accounts on Tumblr or anywhere else.
Ahh, suteki, as I’ve been using multiple profiles the old way, by means of custom shortcuts. This seems more efficient for website profiles though.
However, if you want to have a guest or school chrome, you can still use the other method too.
Just change the chrome shortcut to something like
C:\Users\Your Username Here\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe —user-data-dir=C:\Chrome\Guests
So tonight Isabell tried to take a bath with me. She climbed onto the side of the tub and then stepped onto my lap and sat there for a few minutes, contemplating the water while I sat very still. Then she climbed out and started cleaning herself off.
I’m not sure she’s actually a cat at this point.

This is a really good article about how quickly people actually die from cuts and punctures inflicted by swords and knives. However, it’s really really long and I figured that since I was summarizing for my own benefit I’d share it for anyone else who is writing fiction that involves hacking and slashing your villain(s) to death. If you want the nitty gritty of the hows and whys of this, you can find it at the original source.
…even in the case of mortal wounds, pain may not reach levels of magnitude sufficient to incapacitate a determined swordsman.
Causes of death from stabs and cuts:
- massive bleeding (exsanguination) - most common
- air in the bloodstream (air embolism)
- suffocation (asphyxia)
- air in the chest cavity (pneumothorax)
- infectionStabbing vs cutting:
- Stabbing someone actually takes very little force if you don’t hit bone or hard cartilage.
- The most important factor in the ease of stabbing is the velocity of the blade at impact with the skin, followed by the sharpness of the blade.
- Stabbing wounds tend to close after the weapon is withdrawn.
- Stabbing wounds to muscles are not typically very damaging. Damage increases with the width of the blade.
- Cutting wounds are typically deepest at the site of initial impact and get shallower as force is transferred from the initial swing to pushing and pressing.
- Cutting wounds have a huge number of factors that dictate how deep they are and how easily they damage someone: skill, radial velocity, mass of the blade, and the size of the initial impact.
- Cutting wounds along the grain of musculature are not typically very damaging but cutting wounds across the grain can incapacitate.
Arteries vs veins:
- Severed veins have almost zero blood pressure and sometimes even negative pressure. They do not spurt but major veins can suck air in causing an air embolism.
- Cutting or puncturing a vein is usually not fatal.
- Severed arteries have high blood pressure. The larger arteries do spurt and can often cause death due to exsanguination.
Body parts as targets:
- Severing a jugular vein in the neck causes an air embolism and will make the victim collapse after one or two gasps for air.
- Severing a carotid artery in the neck cuts off the blood supply to the brain but the victim may be conscious for up to thirty seconds.
- Stabbing or cutting the neck also causes the victim to aspirate blood that causes asphyxiation and death.
- Severing a major abdominal artery or vein would cause immediate collapse, but this takes a fairly heavy blade and a significant amount of effort because they are situated near the spine.
- Abdominal wounds that only impact the organs can cause death but they do not immediately incapacitate.
- Severing an artery in the interior of the upper arm causes exsanguination and death but does not immediately incapacitate.
- Severing an artery in the palm side of the forearm causes exsanguination and death but does not immediately incapacitate.
- Severing the femoral artery at a point just above and behind the knee is the best location. Higher up the leg it is too well protected to easily hit. This disables and will eventually kill the victim but does not immediately incapacitate.
- Cutting across the muscles of the forearm can immediately end the opponent’s ability to hold their weapon.
- Cutting across the palm side of the wrist causes immediate loss of ability to hold a weapon.
- Stab wounds to the arm do not significantly impact the ability to wield a weapon or use it.
- Cuts and stab wounds to the front and back of the legs generally do not do enough muscle damage to cause total loss of use of that leg.
- Bone anywhere in the body can bend or otherwise disfigure a blade.
- The brain can be stabbed fairly easily through the eyes, the temples, and the sinuses.
- Stabs to the brain are more often not incapacitating.
The lungs as targets:
- Slicing into the lung stops that lung from functioning, but the other lung continues to function normally. This also requires either luck to get between the ribs or a great deal of force to penetrate the ribs.
- Stabbing the lung stops that lung from functioning, but the other lung continues to function normally. It is significantly easier to stab between ribs than to slice.
- It is possible to stab the victim from the side and pass through both lungs with an adequate length blade. It is very unlikely that this will happen with a slicing hit.
- “Death caused solely by pneumothorax is generally a slow process, occurring as much as several hours after the wound is inflicted.”
- Lung punctures also typically involve the lung filling with blood, but this is a slow process.
The heart as a target:
I’m just going to quote this paragraph outright with a few omissions and formatting changes for clarity because it’s chock-full of good info:
…[stabbing] wounds to the heart the location, depth of penetration, blade width, and the presence or absence of cutting edges are important factors influencing a wounded duelist’s ability to continue a combat.
- Large cuts that transect the heart may be expected to result in swift incapacitation…
- …stab wounds, similar to those that might be inflicted by a thrust with a sword with a narrow, pointed blade may leave a mortally wounded victim capable of surprisingly athletic endeavors.Essentially, the heart can temporarily seal itself well enough to keep pressure up for a little while if it’s a simple stab. The arteries around the heart, while they are smaller and harder to hit, actually cause incapacitation much more quickly.
Perfect dad is perfect.

SUMMERHILL SCHOOL!!! ENGLAND!!!!
My teacher told me about this in high school. As humans we have a natural thirst for knowledge. While naturally kids did their own thing for the first few weeks they eventually started going to class. It teaches them to want to go to class. You’re not forced to learn and because of that you want to learn.
anyone who doesn’t reblog this is a filthy liar
Anyone here who pretends they haven’t darting around the room pretending they were whirling multiple seraph blades in their hands is also lying.
Whoever hasn’t tried to use the force is totally lying.
So idk about anyone else, but I have a lot of trouble writing a decent fight scene. So I thought I’d put together this little master list of tips, and links to help out anyone else who is having similar problem.
How to Write a Fight Scene - Randy Ingermanson - a particularly in depth look at the do’s and don’t’s of writing a fight scene. Although the style of writing is a tad patronising, it’s still worth a read.
Writing Fight Scenes - Another fairly decent overview, although in a briefer format than the previous example.
Creating Fight Scenes - This piece brings into mind discussion of elements surrounding the fight, the terrain, the abilities of each participant (magic user vs sword user for example) as well as highlights some ideas on how to choreograph. (Trigger Warning: There is a scene used as an example of fighting, that discusses a fantasy slave trade, and rape. If this triggers you, skip past the first example called STAR-CROSSED. And carry on to the section marked: What Do You Want To Say About Your Viewpoint and Your Characters.)
Writing an Action/Fight Scene - A more general overview of the cause/effect tension before the actual fight scene itself, rather than a How To for actually writing them.
The Wizard’s Dual - Specifically, as you might have already guessed, aimed at people who are more concerned with working out how to write fight scenes between magic users.
How to Write Fight Scenes (Video) - If reading all of this somehow bores you
you are a writer or at least trying to be one I would be deeply concerned if you hated readingor if you learn better through a more interactive approach, this is the post for you. By author Alan Baxter, it is a 37 minute video on the various different ways you can create an interesting and not to mention readable fight scene.
How To Write A Fight Scene - another guide, this one on fictionpress. It’s ten chapters, and goes through a lot of things that could really help improve when writing a fight scene.
