Track: Get Lucky
I have bronchitis. Thanks to the ACA, I was able to get medicine for $0. #ThanksObama
that came from taxes I paid.
Well, let my know how much I owe you and I’ll drop a few pennies in the mail. War comes from taxes you paid, and I personally dislike the amount I pay going for that… Maybe we should check “yes” or “no” on our 1040 forms this year for allocation of tax dollars.
I’m sorry you think I’m lying, but I’m not. I qualified for the Medicaid expansion under the ACA, which is partially funded through taxpayer revenue. I don’t think the IRS mailed you a letter saying, “Nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah! This year’s tax dollars went to pay for medicine for poor people mwahahaha!” Who knows? Maybe YOUR portion of tax dollars went to a Hellfire missile that took out a village in Afghanistan. Ooh, how exciting for you!
Comfort yourself with that thought as I use my inhaler, which I would not have been able to afford without the ACA.
what the fuck is wrong with Americans who aren’t on board with free healthcare. I’m Canadian and I don’t care that I pay extra taxes so a little boy in Alberta can have open heart surgery, or an elderly man in Nova Scotia can get the heart medication he desperately needs. It’s called taking care of your people. I’m glad I pay so that people can have a good quality of life. It’s called being a decent fucking human being.
Oh yeah… Prosopagnosia is the cognitive impairment of facial recognition. It’s super plausible with Luffy. People with prosopagnosia usually need to reply on other indicators to identify people, like hair style/color, body shape, voices, clothing, and so on.
He’s got green hair, three swords, and a white shit, so he’s gotta be Zoro, right? And he’s got blond hair, curly eyebrows, and smokes, so he’s gotta be Sanji. And it also makes sense for how Luffy thinks that Sanji and Duval and Sanji’s wanted poster look the same.
If Luffy (and Oz, who had Luffy’s personality and mind) can only differentiate faces based on their object features (hair color, hair style, eyebrow shape, etc.), rather than the face itself as a whole, it would make sense that to Luffy, there’s no real difference between how Sanji and his poster look.
And it would also make sense with how Luffy often gives people nicknames based on their physical appearance, like calling Kuma “the guy who looks like a bear” (because of his size and his hat, which has bear ears on it), calling Shiki “steering wheel guy,” and even calling Bartolomeo “chicken head.” If Luffy is able to focus on a specific, very distinct object feature of a person’s appearance, I imagine it makes recognizing them a lot easier.
I only wrote about Luffy here, but it’s super likely that Zoro has some kind of topographical disorientation. I think he could have heading disorientation or topographical agnosia, though I think the first might be more likely. Zoro seems to be unable to comprehend what north is, and equates it with up, and has a hard time telling left and right apart, or conceptualize things like “go right at this landmark.” He could have both tho.

this makes me so happy
I was blogging on my personal blog and I found this post that is really really really fucking important and it would seriously mean the world to me if you all read it.
A lot of people don’t understand my current health situation and they try to say that I’m making it up for attention or “to be cute” or something ignorant like that.
If you think that OR you just want to educate yourself please read this post.
Ah, I can’t wait to go back to college and see my pirate crew and have all the problems and crappy things from this summer fade away.
And I should stop being a butt and letting those problems and worries fester inside me when I have others to turn to and help ease everything.
So in light of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire being confirmed, I’d like to share the excitement with my followers! I’ve already pre-ordered a copy of Alpha Sapphire for myself, so I ordered a copy of Omega Ruby that will be mailed to one lucky winner!!
Here are the rules:
- Like I said, I wanna share this excitement with my followers, so you must be following me! It’s okay if you follow me just for this giveaway, but I hope people will enjoy following me for more Pokemon stuff!
- Only 1 like and 1 reblog per person. It counts as two entries!
- Obviously you have to be okay with giving me your address. The game will arrive at my house and then I will pass it along to the winner! Don’t worry about shipping or anything!
That’s about it! I look forward to finding out more about these games as more updates are released! :D
GOOD JOB, DANIEL

Gosh, Nami is just such a great character because she had every reason to say that she hated fishmen because of what Arlong did to her and her village. But she doesn’t, she makes it very clear that she only hates Arlong. She even goes so far as to completely forgive Hachi, who was a member of Arlong’s crew when he took over her village, and Jinbe, who was responsible for freeing Arlong and allowing him to wreak havoc in East Blue in the first place. She harbors no ill-will and no hatred for them, she forgives them completely and even feels sympathy for them because they’ve been holding resentment towards themselves for the things they did. Nami is such a genuinely kind, compassionate, and overall strong character and it is absolutely incomprehensible to me that there are people who don’t like her. Nami is an abolsutely incredible character.
