Hey, so I’m thinking about buying a game for the 3DS called Conception II. Problem is, I really don’t want to (And just plain won’t) spend $40.00 on it. It’s not a fourty-dollar kind of game to me, and I don’t want to regret the price and not enjoy the game because of it.
So, I’m thinking about buying online if it’s cheaper. Does anyone have any sites they can suggest? Or maybe buying tips? I’m absolutely new to buying things online (Only buying once from Etsy for Mother’s Day), and I don’t want to buy a bad or messed up copy, or a game out of its case.
Any help would be appreciated!
And if you like/love/hate the game, you should definitely try to influence me in buying it. (No plot, though, please!)
Thank you for reading!

It’s on special on the Nintendo Store right now, down from AUS$60 to AUS$30 so it should be even cheaper for you.

That’s invading her rights as a person to decide whether or not she wants to get it done or not.

Mother wants answers after teenage daughter’s armpits were shaved by teacher

A fourteen year-old girl has her armpits forcibly shaved by a teacher, in front of other students. The teacher and school district defend it because the girl is developmentally disabled and needs to learn “independent living skills” (otherwise known, in this case, as why you must submit to gendered social norms at all times).

And the justification is that the girl would be made fun of if she didn’t do it? Maybe you should change the behavior of the kids that are the bullies, not the kids being bullied. Because even if you forcibly shave her armpits, she’s still noticeably disabled, and that (in her case) can’t be hidden/normalized quite so easily.

The message being sent here - and in so many of these programs - is “You’re being teased because you’re different, so try to be the same!” Rather than seeing the value in human difference and diversity.

This makes me so angry.

This isn’t just a feminist issue this is a disability issue. Our bodies belong to us no matter our developmental ability.

7 Reasons Why an Autism Advocacy Organization Would Oppose the Combating Autism Act

Thank you for the wonderful article.

Sontaran Stratagem:[about Staal]

Ross: He’s like a potato. A baked potato. A talking baked potato.

Ten: Now, Ross, don’t be rude. You look like a pink weasel to him. 

The Snowmen:[speaking to Strax]

Eleven: And if I’m ever in the need of advice from a psychotic potato dwarf, you’ll certainly be the first to know. 

Eleven: You’re the potato one.

McDonald’s worker arrested after telling company president she can’t afford shoes.

"A woman who has been employed by the McDonald’s Corporation for over 10 years says she was arrested last week after she confronted the company president at a meeting and told him she couldn’t afford to buy shoes or food for her children.

Nancy Salgado, 26, told The Real News that she felt like she had to speak out during McDonald’s USA President Jeff Stratton’s speech at the Union League Club of Chicago on Friday for the sake of her children.

“It’s really hard for me to feed my two kids and struggle day to day,” she shouted as Stratton was speaking. “Do you think this is fair, that I have to be making $8.25 when I’ve worked for McDonald’s for ten years?”

“I’ve been there for forty years,” Stratton replied from the podium.

“The thing is that I need a raise. But you’re not helping your employees. How is this possible?” Salgado asked.

At that point, someone approached Salgado and informed her that she was going to be arrested.

She later recalled the encounter to The Real News’ Jessica Desvarieux.

“The strength was very powerful, like, just remembering the face of my kids, like I say, you know, just simple things like I can’t provide a pair of shoes like everybody else does, sometimes every month, or anything like that,” she said. “And he needs to know we are what all the employees at McDonald’s are going through. We’re struggling day to day to provide our needs in our houses, things for our kids. And it’s just–it gets harder and harder with just the poverty wage they have us living in.”

“They just told me, you know, well, you’re being under arrest because you just interrupted, you trespassed the property. You’re just going to go to jail,” Salgado added. “And what I remember just telling them, ‘well, like, so, because I have to speak out my mind and I had to tell the president the poverty wage I’m living in, that’s just against the law?’ You know, just be able to speak up your mind and say, you know what, I can’t survive with $8.25? It’s just — it’s ridiculous that I’m going to get arrested. You know.”

Salgado, who is still working at McDonald’s, said she had her hours cut following the arrest and feared further retaliation.

“The CEOs make millions and billions a year and why can’t they provide enough for their employees?” she wondered.”

I think that this is beyond awful for many reasons. People can’t afford to live off of the wages that they are given currently, and can’t even speak out against it. I know tumblr is great for spreading important news like this, so please help me get the word out to support this woman.

Did you really believe that?

 #I love it because martha is all ‘you’re such a fucking idiot’ #and she laughs at the master #she laughs at the fucking psycho who has been destroying earth and who kept her family prisoners #she laughs at someone who could kill her any second #she makes him look like a moron #she takes the power away from him and she turns the tables (via iceinherheart-kissonherlips)

YES THIS IS WHY THIS IS MY FAVORITE MARTHA MOMENT

Also, two thoughts (neither of them new, but I never connected them before) just clicked in my head:

The first thing: Martha is in the Doctor’s role in this episode. Not just that she’s the one saving the day, but TO THE MASTER AS WELL. He puts all his energy into capturing her, defeating her, humiliating her, because he doesn’t want to admit he was ever afraid of her. The Doctor’s spent a year being boring and of no interest to him no matter how hard he prods. It’s incredibly telling that by the end of the year, he’s tormenting the Doctor to try and get at Martha through the people she loves, instead tormenting Martha to get at the Doctor. Martha is the Master’s true archenemy in LotTL, at least for the first three-quarters of it.

The second thing: Mind of Evil. The one thing the Master fears most in the universe is the Doctor laughing in his face.

And when Martha takes on the Doctor’s role, what does she do? THIS GIFSET, YOU GUYS.

This remains - and probably will remain - the single most badass thing any Companion has ever done. She saves the world, and the Doctor, almost entirely on her own, not in one moment of bravado or circumstance but throughout a long, grueling year when she was in danger at every turn, and by outwitting and outplaying a Time Lord who had outplayed the Doctor himself a time or two. MARTHA FOREVER.

This game is really worrying me… I don’t want anything to happen to triche Alec or Luce…

Tell us when you finish Chapter Seven. I’ll have blankets and chocolate on standby.

I FORGOT…

Lures in with cute and silly and borderline fanfic style reading and now everything goes to chaos. Atlus I trusted you!

Atlus makes Persona. NEVER trust the company that makes Persona.

I FORGOT ABOUT MARK WHERE IS HE IS HE OKAY?! Im at chapter seven and…

Have tissues on hand when you finish the Labyrinth, that’s all I’m saying.

I’m imagining the worst. Mark is a monster now, Alec will transform at the star conception festival, and Luce will be in grave danger. And I don’t know about triche either…

If you’re where I think you are, Triche’s already had the worst that’s gonna happen to him happen.

This is not going to make the rest of the game easier, I’m afraid. It sucked us in with cute and silly and you’re now at the point where it rips your chest open and starts really hurting you.
