What Are The Odds DDH DIPA by @magicrockbrewing and @verdantbrew What are the odds that the first time I try any Magic Rock beer, that it’s a collab between them and one of my favourites, Verdant? Well, there’s a lot of things at play here. First of all, both businesses had to be going long enough to produce a beer that made it in to the market. A bit more than 50% of businesses fail in the first four years, and both have beaten that. So let’s say the odds of them both surviving are 1/4. (1/2 divided by 2). Next, one of the brilliant beer shops near me needs to be able to sell it, so that’s another 50%. We’re down to 1/8. Now this beer is probably a once in 5 years collaboration? (Total guess). So that’s 1/40 that I get the right year. It was only around for about a month, so that’s 1/480 that I get the right month, and I probably went 3 times during the month so we’re down to 1/4800 that I’m there on the right day. I actually managed to get this 4 (!) times, but each from different places, which brings us to 1/19,200. It had to be a year at which I was above legal drinking age, so now we’re at 1/192,000, and before that I had to have been born - odds being roughly one in a trillion so we’re talking odds of 1 in 192,000 trillion. Odds of it being absolutely brilliant though? With these guys? We’re back to 1/1. But also I wouldn’t know that so we’ll go with 1/192,000,000,000,000,000,000. … I like those odds. … 9/10

Ever since the legendary and now 2017 NBA champion, Kevin Durant, transferred from Oklahoma City Thunder (OKC) to the Golden State Warriors (GSW), the basketball society has shamed him. The members have called him someone who does not care about his OKC team. Many individuals believe that K.D. only left the group to achieve the Larry O’Brien NBA Championship Trophy and NBA Championship ring and he will come right back to Oklahoma. What fake news.

Wróciłem ze spotkania autorskiego i powiem Wam tak: oczy miałem wilgotne. Grynberg powiedział dwie wielkie rzeczy: że Polska nie jest krajem antysemickim, ale antysemityzm tu jest i cyklicznie się odradza, szambo się wylewa. I że ojczyzną jest język. Tak.

Manipulation is a hot topic for psychological thrillers. I had never heard of the Gaslight Effect until a couple of months ago while doing research for my book. After reading about it on google, I was completely intrigued and decided it would be a side focus in my book!! . This book by Dr.Robin Stern highlights the many ways someone can be manipulated by either their lover, sibling, boss, friend etc. An extremely interesting topic on how ones perception of reality can be distorted by another’s mind games. I have done a blog post highlighting the main points mentioned in the book Including: - What gaslighting is - The three types of gaslighters along with examples - How to spot if you are in a gaslighting relationship I have also written a short story on gaslighting right at the end if you were interested in a short read. ⬆️Link in bio, Enjoy!😊🖤 . . P.s Fab lil heathy pancake recipe... 2 eggs 1 banana (preferably ripened for sweetness) Cinnamon Handful of oats Mix together and cook on low temperature on the stove 😍.

Once there was a little seed of a rose. It didn’t knew it was the rose but all the potential it needed to become a wonderful flower one day was already within that little seed. The wind and storms took that seed from place to place, never let it rest long enough to settle down, always taking it on... But one day the wind became more gentle and at one special place it led the seed fall on the warm ground of Mother Earth. There it was the little seed, on soil that was nourishing and warm. So here the seed was ready then to unfold it‘s wonders within... And some time later there was a flower, beautiful like paradise. It grew and grew and had wonderful colors and shined through out the day. So then it happened what lays within us all. The seed became the rose. And all the time of hard work, loss and pain, the potential for this wonder always was there inside the little seed! This may be a romantic story but yet there is much more behind. What you are reading about that flower is what in your being reveals once you know you are the seed! You have the power, you have the light to become the rose that you are ! Remember, Trust and Love for ever and the wind will take you to your Mother Earth where your wonder may reveal! ♥️ #writtenbyme #inspiredbylauraseiler • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #deepthoughts #shortstory #potenzialentfaltung #persönlichkeitsentwicklung #spirituality #yogagirl #yogainspiration #travelwithme #digitalenomaden #yogapose #sunset #ocean
"Such a lovely specimen!" "I know! I've been looking for one of these forever. Finally!" "Oh... Wow." "What's up?" "I'm just a little surprised.

Most people know it's important to clean the energy of a place where a séance was held. But even just by meditating you can bring negative energy or unwished beings with you. So it's mandatory for every witch that knows her craft to regularily purify her home. And is there anything more handy than just sweeping the bad energy away with your handmade broom? Though it won't work if it's polluted by cathair. #inktober #inktober18 #inktober2018 #witchtober #31witches #dailydraw #digitalink #digitalart #digitalartist #witch #wacom #wacomcintiq #instaart #instart #instaartist #instartist #monochrome #blackandwhite #cute   #oc #shortstory #storytelling   #digitaldrawing #digitalinktober   #blackcat #cutie #broom #cathair
Here it comes. Another painful sleepless night. Since she left, he never slept longer than thirty-seven minutes. Thirty-seven was his record. And that happened only because he had five whiskey sour for dinner. The problem was that he always thought of that bed as the most comfortable place on earth. Sometimes she had to corrupt him with pancakes and sex in order to get him out of that bed. Especially on Sunday mornings. But now it was different. No more sleep, no more pancakes, no more sex. Even the bed looked different. Bad bed. So much truth in a vowel. He started hating that bed. Its shape, its height, its smell. And those pillows, under which she used to hide her face every time he made her a compliment. Stupid soft pillows. During one of those sleepless nights, he begun wondering how many people died of sleep deprivation and if that could have been considered, at least in his case, a rare form of suicide. But he wasn’t interested in killing himself. Not that the idea of eternal rest wasn’t appealing, but who would have guaranteed that the bed in which he would have spent the eternity was better than that bed? He didn’t want to take on the risk. He closed his eyes. He took a deep breath and fall asleep. He slept two hours and eleven minutes that night. When he woke up, he prepared pancakes, get dressed and went to IKEA. . . . #writtenbyme #shortstory #notalovestory #loveisdead #novel #romance #creative #writing #metaphor #climax #words #book #bookworm #booklover #instawriting #inspiration #interiors #interiordesign

There's something charming about things and people who arrived earlier than you. They help you learn and grow. When I found my favorite man's wristwatch resting peacefully at his writing desk, I could not help but wear it and see if I could call it mine. It said that it would love to live a few more years. So I got it fixed and now I'm getting used to this one at this evolving age of smart watches. Let's see how my affair turns out with this particular one. I call it "His Century Quartz" since the dialer claims so and this photograph is another attempt to capture a very dear story - For the love of my man, for the love of photography. #hiswatch #centuryquartz #grandfather #photography #blackandwhite #shortstory

... Qui a lu et qui a vu « L’étrange histoire de Benjamin Button » ? J’ai vu le film de David Fincher avec Brad Pitt dans le rôle titre lors de sa sortie en 2008 et seulement maintenant, je découvre la nouvelle de Francis Scott Fitzgerald ! Une nouvelle fois (comme pour « La légende de Sleepy Hollow dont je vous parlais hier), livre et film n’ont pas grand chose à voir. Et pour cause, David Fincher a tiré d’une nouvelle de 105 pages un long, très long-métrage de 2h46... . Comment ? En créant, mettant en scène, tous les temps mentionnés et survolés par Fitzgerald dans cet étrange récit. La langue y est superbe (décidément j’adore le style de l’auteur) mais le personnage principal exécrable 😶 Au meilleur de sa vie, Benjamin Button s’approche dangereusement du mufle de par son comportement. Je n’ai pas gardé ce souvenir du film 🤔 Tous les autres personnages sont plus que secondaires, ils volent autour de Benjamin et s’éclipsent aussi vite que ses rides. Étrange nouvelle que j’aurais adoré lire en roman. Cette histoire soulève tant de questions restée sans réponses... 🍂🍁🍂 article sur le blog à venir mercredi

Après les pleurs, la peau passe à l’arc-en-ciel, le noir laisse sa place à la palette des zones sinistrées. À la peur s’ajoutent la honte et la culpabilité. On se fragmente, on se dévore de l’intérieur, on disparaît. Toi, la dite nourricière, pourquoi n’as-tu jamais compris que j’étais encore entière sous tes pierres, que j’étais l’une de tes fleurs? Toi, qui se veut chéri des battues, ne vois-tu pas que le coeur s’effrite et que l’âme se blesse à chaque coup? Que tu n’es qu’un monstre qui mérite le trou? Le corps est cabossé, des cernes se sont creusées, les veines ont pris la rage des pourris. Un autre a dit : « oublie, viens par ici, je vais changer ta vie ». « Pretty woman », c’est pour celles qui n’ont pas encore bien vu, qui ne savent pas que les misogynes n’ont pas à contrôler leur statut et leur salut. Contre toi, contre moi, je veux me réfugier longtemps pour vibrer sous tes caresses de sagesse et retrouver mes rêves d’antan. Contre toi, contre moi, je veux me réfugier longtemps pour me libérer de toutes mes tensions et retrouver mes rêves d’antan Je veux m’initier à ton charme, me laisser porter par tes mouvements, ta respiration, partir vers le grand calme pour retrouver le temps où c’était le temps de tout saisir et de tout créer.

die tür öffnet sich in der dunkelheit. der erste schritt der lockigen, rothaarigen in die wohnung von liro umhülte nafi mit geborgenheit. die begegnung mit der hauskatze, welche so süss miaute, eine weitere vertraute. die nacht war zu kurz, nach dem absturz in der bar, war klar, was war. ja, im schlafgemach die restliche zeit verbracht. wie er danach so neben ihr lag und schlief, in ihrem kopf eine stimme rief; sonderbar die unbekannte nähe so bekannt und nah, gar nicht in der ferne. das miauen der katze und wie er so schlief, liessen ihre augen immer nur für kurze zeit schliessen. gedanken fliessen. immer wieder als nafi verwachte, wachte die katze im bett. als er schlief, lief die kleine umher und schmuste mit nafi, sie mochte die katze sehr, ja, sie vermisst sie sehr. die augen wieder geschlossen, schlief sie ein, minuten flossen. am morgen sprang die katze spielerisch auf die decke und weckte nafi aus ihrem schlaf. als liro kurze zeit später die augen öffnet, die hand auf nafis körper legte und sie wieder erregte... tja, was sie nicht überlegte, dass sie sich eine bürde auferlegte und sie jetzt ein einziger gedanke bewegte: und ich würde immer wieder zu dem moment zurück, wo die katze auf meine füsse springt und deine hand mich berührt. ungewissheit... . . . . . . . . #textpost #text #history #story #storytime #writer #writersofinsta #igwriters #igwritersclub #kurzgeschichte #shortstory #shortstories #love #lovestory #moments of #life #memories #schriftsteller #schreiben wird #bleiben #instagood #instagram #writerslife #poetry #poetryslam #poetrycommunity #poesie #slam #damn #moodygrams
Направлять взгляд зрителя к интересному на фотографии помогает композиция, условные линии и расположение элементов в кадре. Я показала фото ребенку и коллегам. Ребенок: А что там, в небе? Самолет? Птицы? Женщины: Такая большая темная сумка не идет к легкому светлому платью. Мужчины: Ягодицы - ничего так. The composition, conditional lines and arrangement of elements in the frame help to direct the viewer's eyes to the interesting in the photo. I showed the photo to my child and colleagues. Child: And what is there, in the sky? A plane? Birds? Women: Such a large dark bag doesn’t match the light-coloured dress. Men: The glutes are not bad. #улица #фотография #фотосъемка #взгляд #девушка #пальмы #сумка #ягодицы #платье #лето #отдых #мужчины #женщины #вопрос #отпуск #streetphoto #photoshoot #viewpoint #walker #palms #bag #bottom #glutes #story #shortstory #vacation #men #women #question #rest
