Q:Okay so I honestly don't know what the FUCK Warhammer 40k is, but your 5 mile long spiel made it sound worth being excited about.
It’s primarily a table top game that’s played with 28cm tall “miniatures”.
If you sell your soul and body you might have enough money to afford the actual hobby.
What’s enjoyable about it is the background lore, or at least I enjoy it. I’m super passionate about it, I don’t know why I clung to it so hard, but I did. I can debate/talk about it like it’s my holy scripture or something, it’s kind of pathetic. It’s a bleak, depressing, dark universe and setting. Its own tagline is “In the grimdarkness of the far future, there is only war”.
It’s got a lot of races.
- Demi-god super humans in armor made of fuckyou, that crusade like it’s the 11th century
- metallic skeleton people that are general automatons that want to strip your flesh and wear it
- giant space lizards bugs that just want to eat your entire planet, no really
Orkz. Because why can’t orkz advance past a fantasy setting?They can! Just not… well
- "Better than you" space elves that are scared of dying and really old, like "This forest is old, old as balls" old.
- Other space elves that are notoriously darker and “eviler” than the other space elves and want to introduce you to a level of BDSM that is on steroids, and then they drain your soul.
A cult of “humans” devoted to machines so much that they gladly amputate their own ears and replace them with augmentics to hear better, NO REALLY. Each machine should be worshipped. PRAISE THE OMNISSIAH. 101110111.
there is even a faction that are blatantly inspired by 80/s90’s japanese mecha. they wear cool mecha-like suits and their skin is blue and they’re socialist.
If you’re into the tabletop, you collect these armies and play with dice and rulers and if you’re great at math, NOT CALCULATORS.
If you’re wise and don’t want to spend a dime you admire the hobby from afar and stick to the growing video-game market and read the novels from Black Library.
It’s a sci-fi setting from the 80’s made by old British guys. It’s a bleak setting that takes every theme to the extreme. Humanity is the underdog, despite being so populous that the dehumanization of death is a major issue. I wrote a thesis paper on it. There’s a lot of different factions and groups and races and such, and everyone is pretty bad, there is no set ‘good’ or ‘bad’ guys.
If you want to get into it, I recommend you check out Blacklibrary.com, there’s a lot of novels. A LOT. If you need a book recommendation, or an author recommendation, ask.
Was I clear enough?
ladies and gentlemen…*unveals curtain* my
blood sweat and tearsfandom.
alright everyone, now you know how to explain ‘us’ to people.
WHAT? NO LOVE FOR THE GUARD?
*Puts on commissar hat and coat*
ALRIGHT LISTEN UP!
In the very likely occurrence that your home world will be invaded, or that you some how end up seeing combat (very likely), the people you’re going to see most are those brave sons of bitches in the Imperial Guard.
Who are the Imperial Guard you ask?
I should shoot you for your heretical line of questioning, but I shall educate you first. The Imperial Guard is the the Hammer of the Emperor.
We may not have all that fancy pancy nimbly pimbly gizmos and gadgets that those Cog boys have, and we may not have all that hoighty toighty armor of the Space Marines, but we have man power and tanks. Throne do we have tanks. Little tanks, big tanks, tanks as big as your fucking house (If not bigger!)
Don’t believe me?
Not to discredit our own boys of course. Our own troopers are tough as nails. In fact, one of the commissars tore off an ork’s arm and beat him half to death with it, WHILE HE WAS MISSING ONE OF HIS OWN I MIGHT ADD.
TL;DR - WE ARE THE EMPEROR’S
SPEEDBUMPHAMMER OF FURY!
i will never not reblog this
Dr. Seuss was a racist. He wouldn’t attach his words to an interracial romance. Here are seven racist cartoons he made about Japanese-Americans during WWII.
He also later apologized and wrote Horton Hears a Who! to illustrate his remorse for his previous way of thinking

Seizure First Aid.
Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it.
100% correct medical information on tumblr for once; also consider calling 911 if you don’t know how often the person has seizures and ESPECIALLY if the seizure has lasted 5 minutes or more (which is why the watch is critical)
I was about to say it would be helpful if it were explained why we need to time it, but I see a helpful sort has added this in. Well done, helpful sort.
May I also add, from being told previously by a seizure-prone person - no one is going to swallow their own tongue. That is not a thing. However, they may choke, suffocate, or otherwise suffer lacerations from you trying to shove something into their mouth to keep them from doing this impossible thing. On no account do this.
This is super important! I had someone seizure during one of my panels (no it was not our fault, there was no slideshow at this point, just us talking) and we were lucky enough to have a few people with medical knowledge around. Memorize these steps, please.
