When does a grain of salt piled together become a heap?
It’s a matter of perception, not one of quantity. We humans understand numbers as a vast concept and could count from 1 to 267,495,138.
The definition of words such as many, some, heap, pile, etc. are perception boundaries.
When the quantity of an object increases to a point at which the human cannot and quickly perceive it. You have a pile of 10 straws and a person could walk by and quickly mentally calculate the quantity. AT A GLANCE.
When this cannot be done at a glance, the quantity becomes a heap.
If you are surrounded by 42 great white sharks, it isn’t much different than if there were 43.
1. Cease military shelling, from both sides.
2. An international group, like the OSCE, will conduct a vote.
•Residents of Donetsk city will be asked two questions.
A. Do they wish to be a part of the Self-Autonomous Region of Novorussia.
B. Do they wish for the airport of Donetsk to be included in the boundaries of the city.
In reality, only the people that live in the city, of which an airport is normally considered a part of a city. Just like people in Kiev or Kharkiv should NOT make policy decisions for Odessa or Crimea.
Odessa belongs to the Odessans, Crimea belongs to the Crimeans.
Crimea does not belong to the Lvivians.
This is the way to solve things peacefully.
If the Kievans or Novorussians don’t want this, they have shown that they think they have a strong chance to lose. But, if they support it, they put their money where their mouth is. And went not? If a fair election shows Donetsk doesn’t want to be under Kiev anymore, why should Kiev force it?
In fact, Kiev attempting to force it would be immoral and unethical!
We need the UN to make a committee considering such situations.
Something is grooming Clara, training her to take the Doctor’s place.
•She had to decide whether to blow up the moon (Kill the Moon)
•She had to take on the role of the Doctor to investigate (Flatline)
•She’s interwoven across the Doctor’s timeline
•Exposed to the Time Vortex itself (Time of the Doctor)
Neither Russia NOR Kiev should try to force an outcome. It is up for Crimeans to decide for themselves.
This is why what’s going on in East Ukraine is happening. The people in power in Kiev decided against a peaceful solution.
They could have easily supported an independence referendum for Crimea and Donetsk/Luhansk resulting in peace like how Scotland’s referendum was.
No, Instead they call all who disagree with their opinion ‘terrorists’. And then use military force! Um… Wasn’t a revolution just held that ousted the leader for using force against protestors? Did they just forget that?
I don’t really care who’s right or wrong for an issue, but neither side should use military force/violence to enforce their views on other.
That’s like saying you would beat someone to death for not supporting allowing same sex marriage. You DO NOT DO that kind of stuff!
Hungary’s far-right Jobbik party has taken control of the industrial town of Ozd in the north-east of the country after an election campaign promising to ‘solve’ the Roma question. The new leaders say they want to ‘clean’ the town of its ‘problems’ which the Roma community say is code for ethnic cleansing.
Around a quarter of Ozd’s population are Roma, and most of them live in dire poverty and suffer frequent harassment by the police.

Pacific Rim 2 -2017
ok using my reflexes to screencap the images at the end of Dipper’s Guide to the Unexplained, this is the closest I can give you to the full image. It appears to be Bill Cipher’s eye with two bloody marks crossing it out. Hell if I know what any of that code means, though. Someone should probably get on that.
OK SO the text at the bottom is coded in a Caeser Cipher shifted three letters apparently? so I decoded it and it says:
FROM THE FIRST UNTIL THE LAST SEARCH THE CODES OF CREDITS PAST ONE MEANS ONE SO SEARCH THEM ALL WELCOME TO GRAVITY FALLS
which means that theres clues in previous episodes? and i think i might know what it means so I’ll report back what I find on that front. For now, enjoy part of the mystery being decoded.
FINAL UPDATE ON THIS!!!!! IVE CRACKED THE CODE IN ITS ENTIRETY
ok so the numbers in red are episode numbers, followed by numbers correlating to letters in the messages at the end of previous episodes (with brackets indicating the beginning and end of a word). By matching them up, I got the message:
I WAS SO BLIND HE LIED TO ME THE DARKNESS IS NEAR
as far as I know that’s all to this. It raises more questions than it answers. Still, I’m glad I figured this out.
i thought this was supposed to be a disney show not some illuminati satanic bullshit goddamn i say goddamn
WHAT THE FUCK THIS IS TERRIFYING
Welcome to Gravity Falls.
• The Red Comet precedes a Long Winter
Now, what a good explanation is that the seasons are mainly caused by orbital dust clouds.
The Red Comet is part of it. A violent cataclysm or maybe system interloper occurred and the debris path lays very close to the planet’s orbit.
When there is a lot of debris, the sunlight is reduced, causing colder weather. When there is no debris, there is warmer weather.
Additional effects would cause even wilder weather. But the seemingly random seasonal length could only be so random IMO if it were a dust cloud reducing solar levels.
