this retailer sells a halal nail polish. this allows for oxygen and water to go through the nail, which makes it acceptable to wear during prayer. spread the word.
“Being a relatively modern creation, nail polish remains obviously unaddressed by early Islamic sources. But the general consensus in the Islamic community is that praying with nail polish is impermissible because of the waterproof barrier it creates on nails, which prevents the wudu ritual from being completed five times a day.” (source)
For any Muslim followers.
DON’T ACTUALLY USE THIS FOR THE SAKE OF WATER PERMEABILITY. IT’S NOT VERY EFFECTIVE.
It’s only water vapor permeable, and it’s not at all water permeable when you apply multiple coats, a top coat, or a base coat.
You should use the Tuesday In Love water-permeable brands instead! They’re completely water permeable and come in a whole ton of colors!
Here’s a test that a sister did comparing the Inglot brand and the Tuesday In Love brand on a paper towel so you can see for yourself.
please please please spread this around, I would hate for a lot of sisters to have their prayers invalidated because of something like this.
What you’ll need:
·A cheesy fanfic extract
·A pendant ring (from crafts sotres)
1. Take a paragraph from your favorite fanfic or book and print it or photocopy it. Make sure your printer is not in “Draft” mode.
2. Clean the coin completely and place it just where you want it to be, over what you want to have in the pendant.
3. Cut roughly around that specific spot. Cover the coin with glue and paste it behind the text, using the light against it to guide you.
*If your paper isn’t thick enough, you may want to paste a blank piece of paper underneath your text as a base.
4. Cut out the surplus.
5. Put just a little bit glue over the text, spread it outwars and let it dry.
6. Add a thick, thick layer of glue. This will act as the acrylic that will protect your pendant once it’s completely dry. I suggest you to let it dry overnight.
If you want to, you can add a second layer once the first one is dry. This will make it look more… real.
Finally, paste the pendant ring on the back of the coin.
·Try avoiding smut.
·If anyone asks about it, try not to panic and hide it underneath your shirt.
·Be prepared for fangirling outbrusts. Just thinking that you have your OTP in your necklace may give you feels.
I KEEP MEANING TO DO THIS BUT I FORGET.
I’m SERIOUSLY gonna do this.
Did you know that you can make houses out of plastic bottles? By filling them with sand, and molding them together with mud or cement, the walls created are actually bullet proof, fire proof, and will maintain an comfortable indoor temperature of 64 degrees in the summer time.
And it’s not like there is any shortage on used plastic bottles out there. Here are some statistics from treehugger.com:
“The United States uses 129.6 Million plastic bottles per day which is 47.3 Billion plastic bottles per year. About 80% of those plastic bottles end up in a landfill!”
To build a two bedroom, 1200 square foot home, it takes about 14,000 bottles.
The United States throws away enough plastic bottles to build 9257 of these 2 bedroom houses per day! That’s just over 3.35 million homes, the same number of homeless people in America.
Many people in third world countries have taken up building homes out of plastic bottles, from Africa to Asia. Perhaps the trend will catch on in America and all of those bottles will stop ending up in the landfills. Wouldn’t they be better off housing the homeless? Kinda like all those empty houses scattered all over the country?
An asexual and pansexual become room-mates and have wacky adventures
The show is called ‘All or Nothing’
Plot twist: the asexual is really super outgoing and is a huge flirt while the pansexual is extremely socially awkward and has trouble ordering coffee let alone getting a date.
my hand slipped
Possibly also some bisexual/biromantic friends/neighbors whose introductory line every episode is “by the way,” followed by a random factoid, or the set-up for that episode’s shenanigans.
this gets better every time i see it
3D sculpt turntables are also extremely valuable resources for helping you get better at drawing!! The way I do it, I always ALWAYS try to keep, in my mind, a physical 3D existing object that I, as I draw, am only describing. Yknow what I mean? physicality, and a sense of space, are paramount to me. Maybe not to you, but it’s nice to know the rules anyway.
imagine banana wiht any other vowel

A E I O U AND SOMETIMES Y GO TO FIRST GRADE

I LIKE TO EAT
APPLES AND BANANAAAAAS
These are all extremely fair pointsthe first one especially speaks to me on a spiritual level
the last one is the most true shit ever
boys get the good shit
girls get “sexy ___”
whats next “sexy object”
because that’s what people are seeing girls as
Windmill slam reblog
But sometimes you want that sexy powerful character so girls can be like “hell fucking yeah she’s hot and can kick ass and I can do the same” like wonder woman
you can be sexy and powerful without being unrealistic
yes i love wondy’s costume but as an outfit not something to fight in. if she changed into real armor to fight that would be great.
I was so shocked when I found out that the Shadow Realm wasn’t even a real concept in the Yugioh universe but, rather, an invention by 4kids to avoid mentioning death in the English dub
yugiOH MY GOD
Incidentally, in some ways the Shadow Realm makes things even scarier. Esteemed guests, 4Kids avoided death by creating a fate worse than death.
For the record - Smashsurvey’s “survey”
I am not cool with smashsurvey’s “survey” or whatever. I am not cool with their wishy-washy response to things and I am not cool with their ignoring of the neo-nazis and racist trolls mucking about like dirty, smelly white two-year-olds in the safe space tags.
How are you going to translate actual death threats and harassment towards people of color to a “yes or no” survey about “do you feel this fandom is racist?” Seriously, how does that help? How is that effective in anyway? It is beyond how people “feel” about the fandom. We’ve moved on from how white people feel about it, because actual POC have been bullied out of the fandom and actual POC feel unsafe in the fandom due to intense amount of racism and defending of said racism.
I feel like this survey was an ineffectual and unreliable flailing about that does nothing to actually make this fandom a safer space. Additionally, I and two other people of color contacted them (as they asked!) about our experiences in the fandom and they have not responded at all, they have not published or discussed the issues we e-mailed them about, they have done nothing to indicate they received our emails and care about our struggles.
Why is some cruddy yes/no survey more important than the struggles of people of color, two of which who contacted them have been harassed out of the fandom because of racism!?
And there are certain “Good White People” in this fandom who have been stinky and crappy too, and they don’t even realize it. I know who they are. They’re part of the “SJW” crew too. They’ve reblogged things uncritically, they’ve equated their issues with the struggles of POC and have spoken for and over POC. If you’re thinking it might be you, it probably is.
I don’t like this survey. I appreciate the intent and effort but I don’t like how wishy-washy the response was and I don’t like how it ignored certain issues within the fandom.
White people need to stop acting like there’s room for questioning and redemption and start acknowledging that this fandom is collective trash and will continue to be so until the majority of white people get off their lazy and complicit arses and do something about it.
