I forced a bot to watch over 1,000 hours of Person of Interest episodes and then asked
it to write a POI episode of its own. Here is the first page.

King of shoot the shit

Tag urself

I so desperately want good translations of these

ask n ye shall recieve

the first one i’m not sure about because i’m not familiar with all the characters but it says something along the lines of “kicking your ass is not a mistake” (note that it literally says “kicking your ass”. as in taking a foot to someone’s butt, not beating them up)

second one literally says “king of shooting the juice” (not sure if it’s slang for something else, could have a less literal meaning)

third one is “no smoking allowed, i will go crazy”

fourth one is just “no beer, no dad” (beer and dad rhyme in cantonese!)

fifth one says “i think of you as a pearl, a precious, so don’t think of me as water or grass” which would be better translated to mean something like “i treat you like you’re royalty, don’t treat me like i’m common and worthless”. or i guess “don’t treat me like potato” works too, carries the same gist

if someone notices a mistake in my translation/can understand and interpret this better please feel free to say so

Native Cantonese speaker here.

For “King of Shoot the Shit”, the literal translation of the three characters is: lick shit king. I don’t even know what it means 😂

“No Beer No Dad”: could also literally translated into, no baby no dad, or, no beer no talk.

The last one: You are my jewels my treasure please don’t treat me like sea weeds.

I guess “lick shit king” written in that order could be interpreted as “king of licking shit” ?? 😂

Haha, yes, king of licking shit. BTW “licking shit” is also the homophonic pun of “Nike”. So you can also say it’s Nike King.

Water grass or sea weeds is fine. Contextually, they were used to wrap vegetables or raw meat in Asian wet markets before plastic bags. It means something nobody wants and will be discarded right away after using. 😂

Come and let us live my Deare,
Let us love and never feare,
What the sowrest Fathers say:
Brightest Sol that dyes to day
Lives againe as blith to morrow,
But if we darke sons of sorrow
Set, then, how long a Night
Shuts the Eyes of our short light!
Then let amorous kisses dwell
On our lips, begin and tell
A Thousand, and a Hundred, score
an Hundred, and a Thousand more

I cry every time I see this.

I agree, this saying, prayer, poem, whatever DG put in OL story is foundation of the Claire & Jamie story. Love, love, love it.

Learn to Respond, Not React : zen habits

Learn to Respond, Not React : zen habits:

Do you have the patience to wait
till your mud settles and the water is clear?
~Lao Tzu

Much of our lives is spent in reaction to others and to events around
us. The problem is that these reactions might not always be the best
course of action, and as a result, they can make others unhappy, make
things worse for us, make the situation worse.

Why would we want to make things worse?

The truth is, we often react without thinking. It’s a gut reaction,
often based on fear and insecurities, and it’s not the most rational or
appropriate way to act. Responding, on the other hand, is
taking the situation in, and deciding the best course of action based on
values such as reason, compassion, cooperation
, etc.

Let’s take a quick example:

  1. React: Your child breaks something. You immediately
    react by getting angry, perhaps yelling, upsetting the child and
    yourself, worsening your relationship, not making anything better.
  2. Respond: Your child breaks something. You notice
    your anger reaction, but pause, take a breath, and consider the
    situation. First response is to see if your child is OK — is she hurt,
    scared? Second, realize that the object that is broken, in the larger
    view, is not that important. Let it go, adjust to a world without it
    .
    Third, help her clean up, make a game of it, show her that mistakes
    happen and that it’s not something to dwell on. Fourth, calmly talk
    about how to avoid mistakes like that in the future, and give her a hug.

This choice presents itself to us all the time, whether it’s our
mother nagging us, our co-worker being rude, our husband not being kind
enough, and so on. There will always be external events that bother us,
but if we learn to respond and not just react, we can make things better
and not worse.

My decade-long Tumblr and relatively short Outlander fandom experience, as well as my observations on Caitriona Balfe, are consistent with what I have been learning on my job and in dancing: Act or Respond, but don’t react.
