My American Followers: SIGN THIS PETITION -
This is the official Whitehouse.gov petition to stop CISPA 2.0 - I can’t sign it because I’m not in America but this bill would affect more than just Americans, it’ll affect anyone and everyone who uses the internet.
Please Sign it!
((If you are American or are naturalized, Sign. It. This is not a request. It is a command. Because this is not a freaking joke, the same way SOPA last year was not a joke.))
[NEEDS 96,000 signatures, only has 3,000. SIGN! GO GO GO!]
Guys, even if you’re not in America just leave the state blank when you sign up and you can still sign it.
In other words, GO GO GO GO GO THIS IS SO IMPORTANT DO IT NOW.
We got someone a fluffy chicken for way less than this, don’t tell me it’s impossible. THE INTERNET DEPENDS ON IT.
THIS IS RIGHT NOW OR ELSE WE’RE ALL FUCKED.
Signed. BOOM. You should too.
OVER 10 YEARS LATER AND I AM STILL TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THIS MEANS
LET’S BREAK IT UP. Turn the “half” phrases into other sayings that mean the same thing.
I don’t know (half of you) (half as well) as I should like;
Half of you = many of you / most of you
Half as well = nearly as well
I don’t know (many of you) (nearly as well) as I should like [to know you];
and I like (less than half of you) (half as well) as you deserve.
Less than half of you = some of you / only some of you
Half as well = not well enough / not as well
and I like (some of you) (not as well) as you deserve [to be liked].
And I like (only some of you), (but those whom I do like, I like you less than) you deserve [to be liked].
(This reading would have been helped by a comma after “I like less than half of you,” but this interpretation goes along with Bilbo’s delivery, which seems to be gently insulting.)
I don’t know most of you nearly as well as I should like [to know you]; and I like some of you less than you deserve [to be liked].
I don’t know most of you nearly as well as I should like [to know you]; and I only like some of you, but those whom I do like deserve to be liked more.
I wish I knew more of you. And those who I know and like, I should like you more.
Because Andrew Scott...: Okay, that's it... -
I’m going to blabble about something that I know none of you will care about but I need to get it out there anyway… Don’t read it if you don’t want to… I am just making this post for myself really. Haha
I am sick of being overweight and I need to get in shape and be healthier…
So starting on…
Hi Anya, I found your blog when I was looking over my friend’s shoulder at her dash (she’s a Moriarty fan too). I saw your post on weight, and I appreciated its maturity – no calling yourself ugly, no blatant attention seeking, etc. And I can totally identify with it – I’ve been your weight, and I find that exercise/eating right will improve your mood, give you energy, help you to sleep better, add variety/fun to your routine, make things like stairs less evil, and many other benefits. HOWEVER. You need to ask yourself - why do you feel you need to lose weight? What is it about the numbers that you need to change or get to?
Because, keep in mind that the BMI scale which claims to calculate percentage of body fat in fact does NOT do that, since the only measurements it takes into account are height and weight. It does not take into account factors like ethnicity, bone structure, and especially muscle mass. According to the BMI chart, most weight lifters would be obese, and many people who start to exercise are dismayed that they are gaining weight, when they are gaining muscle.
Additionally, weight is a lot more fluid than people think. Your weight can be pounds different in the morning/afternoon/evening, before/after eating or going to the bathroom, and before/during/after menstrual cycle. Even though weight is an easy, concrete way to measure your health, it is constantly fluctuating naturally. It can also be just plain unreliable as an indicator of health (do you know anyone who appears to be a perfect weight, but doesn’t exercise and eats unhealthily?)
Again, the earnestness and consideration in your post was refreshing, an I don’t mean to say that you are ignorant of the stuff I mentioned. In fact, I’m probably preaching to the choir. But since you were on the right track, I just wanted to remind you and whoever happens to see this that the “your health is more than a number” thing isn’t just a slogan to boost people’s confidence. It expresses the fact that weight is complex, multi-faceted, and a poor indicator of health.
p.s. Also, you say that you created your own “safe and responsible diet,” which means that you’re probably avoiding short term/fad diets. So maybe you already have in mind that smaller long-term/lifestyle changes, like drinking less soda, are more effective than dramatic short-term changes, like cutting all carbs, since your body will bounce back from that as soon as you stop. But like I said, you already know that. :)
