Bonus round: wait one fucking second isn’t that something my friend says and now I’m saying it too

and then there’s my favorite: Did I Get That From My Friend Or Did They Get It From Me?

misshapensharks said: I just learned that apparently there is a condition called "Place Blindness" or topographic agnosia where a person can't use visuals to direct themselves and can become lost in familiar environments. It made me think of Zoro immediately! On a related note, face blindness makes me think of Luffy.

calgaras:

Oh yeah… Prosopagnosia is the cognitive impairment of facial recognition. It’s super plausible with Luffy. People with prosopagnosia usually need to reply on other indicators to identify people, like hair style/color, body shape, voices, clothing, and so on.

He’s got green hair, three swords, and a white shit, so he’s gotta be Zoro, right? And he’s got blond hair, curly eyebrows, and smokes, so he’s gotta be Sanji. And it also makes sense for how Luffy thinks that Sanji and Duval and Sanji’s wanted poster look the same.

image

If Luffy (and Oz, who had Luffy’s personality and mind) can only differentiate faces based on their object features (hair color, hair style, eyebrow shape, etc.), rather than the face itself as a whole, it would make sense that to Luffy, there’s no real difference between how Sanji and his poster look.

And it would also make sense with how Luffy often gives people nicknames based on their physical appearance, like calling Kuma “that bear Shichibukai” (because of his size and his hat, which has bear ears on it), calling Shiki “steering wheel,” and even calling Bartolomeo “chicken head.” If Luffy is able to focus on a specific, very distinct object feature of a person’s appearance, I imagine it makes recognizing them a lot easier.

I only wrote about Luffy here, but it’s super likely that Zoro has some kind of topographical disorientation. I think he could have heading disorientation or topographical agnosia, though I think the first might be more likely. Zoro seems to be unable to comprehend what north is, and equates it with up, and has a hard time telling left and right apart, or conceptualize things like “go right at this landmark.” He could have both tho.

whenever i’m sad i like to imagine what possible crime Steve Irwin’s ancestor committed to warrant him being sent to Australia like some Victorian gentleman escorting a lady to the zoo past the crocodile enclosure and going “do you see that great wyrm sunning itself there? quite a striking creature, is it not? I do believe I shall engage it in fisticuffs.”

Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.

And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.

It’s great that he’s addressed this but are we really supposed to believe that NO ONE during the extremely lengthy processes of writing a song, recording it, mastering it and animating the music video wouldn’t have brought it up?

Excuse me but how the hell is spastic even remotely insulting?

So I just recently learned that in the UK calling someone spastic means the same thing as calling someone retarded, only much worse.
If it makes people in the UK feel any better, people in the US literally do not know this (like literally no one I have ever met and/or know). Here being spastic is usually meant to mean something along the lines of acting like a hyper-active child (like running around in circles yelling just because they feel like it please be quiet for just 2 minutes type of child). NOBODY here uses it as a slur.
Since Weird Al is a US musician and the US music industry is pretty non-international, yeah actually I think its entirely possible that none of the people who worked on this song actually knew that spastic was considered an awful slur in some parts of the world.
And I’m like 99.9999% sure that Weird Al is genuinely very sorry that he was accidentally offensive.
