The Celtic Tree Zodiac is based on the ancient idea that the time of our births is pivotal to the formation of our personality and behavior. The spiritually savvy Celts, particularly the druids were expert observers. Over time, they recognized that a child born within a certain season would develop certain qualities. Further, the druids observed patterns in the color and shape of a persons life according to the motions of the moon (their calendar being based on a lunar year being 13 months) and the season in which we are born.
This actually has nothing to do with the Celts (spiritually savvy or not). “Celtic tree astrology” was loosely interpreted based on Robert Grave’s 1948 essay “The White Goddess”. Robert Graves was a poetic, a novelist, and a scholar who specialized in ancient Greece and Rome, but he was not an expert in Celtic mythology. In other words, the “Celtic Tree Zodiac” has nothing to do with ancient Celtic mythology or astrology. In fact, very little is known about Celtic astrology other than “it very probably was a thing”.
So anyway, if it says anything about “Alders” being horrible fun-ruining skeptics, then I guess you can find your grain of truth despite the fact that neopagans created the Tree Zodiac based on a long essay.
“This video presents some of the most stereotypical, if not corny American stereotypes. The desert. The galloping stallions. The beautiful woman. The soft porn. The lone ranger riding his motorcycle into the sunset. And it is all presented in such a simple and uninspiring way that it is almost a mockery of these things. The only thing not stereotypically American here, is the fact that the lone ranger is black. So why is Kanye doing this? Well it is pretty simple, he is taking White American culture, and he is replacing it with a black skin head. This is essentially an aggressive cultural takeover that the average person probably doesn’t even realise is happening. Why else would he debut the video on the Ellen show? It is a white American talk show, with a white American demographic. This man is literally destroying white American stereotypes by making them revolve around him. The funniest part is, hardly anyone realises it. Oh and who is White America’s favourite ‘white’ person? Jesus. I’m sure you all get where I’m going with this.”
Coincidentally, this was the next thing on my dash. Microwaves also can’t get through metal objects or “jiggle” their molecules very well, so they get reflected back instead (which is what has the potential to damage your microwave even when you’re not actually seeing sparks).
DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT MICROWAVE METAL IT WILL BREAK YOUR MICROWAVE
omg just run the spoon under hot water like a normal person where in god’s name were you people raised
ICE CREAM TOO HARD? SET YOUR HOUSE ON FIRE.
A spoon is okay to microwave - anything metal w/o edges (like a fork), won’t spark in the microwave.
Ehhhhh that’s not actually true. Just because the spoon won’t make visible sparks doesn’t mean that it won’t damage your microwave. It also won’t burn your house down, but that doesn’t mean that it’s a good idea. Some microwave models might be OK, and if you made a point to put the spoon in a glass of water or on a thick porcelain plate, it might be fine… but why waste the time and potentially damage your microwave when you could just pop the ice cream in the microwave for all of ten seconds?
