I have a feeling this is going to keep me up..
A.) Once exactly half of it is through the portal, the two ends of the rod are affected by gravity equally but in opposite directions, thus it will appear to be unaffected. In other words, it will float, not moving at all.
EDIT: I somehow missed the fact that the ends are soldered together; in that case, it will always be perfectly balanced.
B.) Portals cannot be opened on moving surfaces, and are disrupted if the surface they’re on is moved (in the first game, anyway; haven’t played Portal 2). Presumably, the collapse of the portal would sever the rod.
C.) As in B, when a new portal is opened, the previous one of the same color is closed, likely severing the rod.
There you go.
Portfolios of female fanfic writers:
Canada: Dragon Age 2
Japan: FUCKING RANCE
Ah yes, Rance, the pinnacle of Tumblr-Approved games.
Oh man, Sengoku Rance. Never before have I seen such great gameplay meet such laughably badly written scenes.
I want this printed on every shirt I own
The fun thing about such statements is that they can be used to (seemingly) justify absolutely any position! Let us observe:
"To those who can’t see the point in ethnic cleansing: you’re the reason it exists."
"To those who can’t see the point in eugenics: you’re the reason it exists."
"To those who can’t see the point in throwing babies into active volcanoes: you’re the reason it exists."
It relies completely on circular reasoning, without offering any kind of justification. In other words, it means nothing and proves nothing.

Maybe it’s time for you to leave the internet. :/
of course this self-flagelating dickhead is white, why wouldn’t he be
This is going to make me really unpopular, but if you’re a radical who genuinely wants change, it actually is your job to educate people.
In which case you should’ve responded to my reblog with more than a picture of a dog, right?
You also act like calling out people harshly doesn’t encourage them to educate themselves.
ALSO, you’re pulling a “No True Scotsman” fallacy by saying that all true activists who want change will educate every idiot who says something shitty on the internet.
>You also act like calling out people harshly doesn’t encourage them to educate themselves
Man, that’s a good one! Shame that a “call-out” really translates to “you did something I don’t like, and I think the world revolves around me, so you should immediately start catering to my tender sensibilities”. To which the only correct answer is “fuck your shit, your whiny ass ain’t my problem”.
I’m embarrassed for you, really. I’ve been watching your descent into full-on SJW-hood for a while now, and it seems you’re irredeemable at this point. Sic transit gloria mundi.

Welcome to the United Kingdom
This makes me hate my country.
Someone else can screenshot all these, but here’s more:
Chip shop sign saying “English owners” deemed controversial
Racist to fly the British flag in Britain
English people in Cumbria told to remove English flags because they offend immigrants
TAXI DRIVER TOLD TO DROP “RACIST” PATRIOTIC SIGN
English council workers banned from displaying English flags on their private vehicles
English motorist stopped by police for displaying English flag: told to remove it because it’s racist
Council refuses to fund English parade because they consider it to be racist
Taxi drivers accused of racism for saying they speak English
U.K. government spends virtually nothing promoting St.George’s Day, but finances other national celebrations
Welsh police cheif asks English people not to display English flags because it’s offensive and could lead to racism and violence
English schoolchildren punished for wearing clothes with the English flag, or for even being dropped off cars with the English flag
English flag not shown on English food products (but Scottish/Welsh flag shown on Scottish/Welsh food products)
English schoolgirl arrested for wanting to speak English in class
English flag torn off building – other flags left intact
English flags torn off private house and burned
Group proposes banning English flag in Cornwall
English council won’t fly English flag (in England) in case it offends Muslims

English families ordered to take down “offensive” English flags from their houses
Indigenous English builders ordered not to fly the English flag in case it offends Muslim immigrants
Indigenous English prison staff ordered not to wear English flag pins in case it offends Muslim immigrants
This is what people mean when we say “political correctness.”
I’m a little torn on this. Often papers will blow things out of proportion to put across that the country is over sensitive and that ‘the foreigners’ are at fault for this. There are genuine cases of over the top political correctness, but often the story leaves out important pieces of information that would shed light on what actually happened.
Some of them yeah, but the one about letting a gang go around raping girls is…yeah..that came out in the trial, it was kind of a big stink that rapidly went away.
It’s weird how the UK cops swing from one extreme to another, first using undercover officers to investigate the family of a murder victim because they are black and then basically ignoring a group of rapists because of the colour of their skin.
It’s simple, really.
In a culture where racism is pervasive, non-whites are persecuted, because any negative claim about them is automatically assumed to be true, proof and product of their inferiority.
By contrast, in a culture where liberalism is pervasive, non-whites are given free pass on antisocial and outright criminal behavior, because any negative claim about them is automatically assumed to be false, proof and product of white racism.
Thus, in a culture where both ideologies are present, some will converge at one extreme, some at the other.
yaaaaay, more creepy adult cis people telling me i’m a dumb teenager who doesn’t deserve respect because i use the term cis scum
Yaaaaay, a dumb teenager who thinks she’s better than adults by default and surprised that people don’t respect her after she calls them scum telling us we’re creepy.
How To Read A 223-Page Novel In Just 77 Minutes
Spritz is a company that makes a speed-reading technology which allows you to get through a mass of text, reading every word, in a fraction of the time it would take if you were turning the pages of a book or swiping through a Kindle.
The basis of Spritz concept is that much of the time spend reading is “wasted” on moving your eyes from side to side, from one word to the next. By flashing the words quickly, one after the other, all in the same place, eye movement is reduced almost to zero. All that’s left is the time you take to process the word before the next one appears.
The company is selling licenses for other companies who might want to use the technology in operating systems, applications, wearables, and websites. Obviously, the tiny screen of a smart watch instantly springs to mind.
But the real revelation of Spritz is in trying it yourself.
This seemed very cool at first, until I decided to test it on the site and attempt to read it for a longer while, which made me realize that it has a serious flaw: anything you read literally becomes a “blink and you’ll miss it” thing. You can read just fine while you focus constantly, but doing so for any prolonged period puts serious strain on the eyes, and in the blink of an eye, 2-3 words flash by, easily leaving you completely clueless of what the sentence was supposed to say. In other words, it’s neat but unfeasible.

That is all.
