If someone called you Loki, would you consider that reference to be (1) a compliment, (2) an insult or (3) a form of hate speech?

There are numerous interpretations. This allegory from Norse mythology could mean "joker" or "trickster" but others suggest that "liar," "deceiver" or "shapeshifter" would be more appropriate. When it comes to these allegories, one's personal interpretation is usually a reflection of one's true character. Isn't that something?!

I somehow agree that history is LIKE chismis There are different versions of those involved. Yep may data na naka back up but how sure are we that all of those things were not manipulated? Sa Greek mythology (na myth nga lang ba?) mali mali na how much more to other histories na di natin naabutan

History is Inaccurate is the word you're looking for and not "Like Chismis."
History has been studied and pieced together by historians from first-hand accounts, writings, artifacts and by word of mouth from people who've experienced such history. The reality is; It is inaccurate and is prone to biases/prespective of the writer and infact you can find biases everywhere! even you are biased! And it isn't a neccessarily a bad thing and that is why we cross-reference from multiple sources.
The bad thing is denying, covering, Rewriting/Spreading false information because of the bias which is currently happening enmasse in our Country.
Likening Chismis to History is equal to discrediting the years of work/studies of our historians and from people who've experienced it first hand.

Hmmm... I understand why you're doubting the written history; however, you need to understand na being a historian back then and even now requires so much effort to acquire precise information about the events that had happened. Hindi lang sa tabi tabi nila nakukuha ang information. Oo, may mga kumakalat na na mga chismis noon, pero nag iinvestigate sila by digging deeper and by authenticating those "chismis" kung tawagin man noon. May iba naman na historians ngayon na tumitingin sa original news articles under certain era kung anong panahon man sila nag iimbestiga. It's all in the records (newspapers, books, articles, video tapes, journals, etc.). It's nearly impossible naman na hindi makalap ang other side of the coin when there are records to show, 'di ba? Kaya nga may debate pa rin ngayon about sa Marcos Sr. regime if maunlad ba talaga or madugo dahil sa "chismis" na 'yan. You'll know the answer once you start looking for the authentic ones (data). Also, while I'm answering your shout out, may hate ka nang natatanggap (based on new shout outs dito sa akin), which I think is kind of... wrong. Hindi kita kinakampihan pero hindi rin maganda na gano'n ang mga shout outs sa 'yo. I admire your bravery kasi hindi naka activate ang anon dito sa shout out mo, ang tapang ah. Hahaha. Pero, ayon nga, try to think about what we've said (iyong iba na nag disagree din dito sa opinion mo). Opinions are meant to be discussed naman. Hehehe.

So, who are you siding up with? Historians or Ella Cruz? Hindi porket hindi mo naabutan, magda-doubt ka na. There are tons of records supported by data that have proven the important events that happened in our country. I don't like that kind of thinking. It seems to me that all those sacrifices our Filipino heroes have made for our country's independence turned out for nothing because of disinformation online. May internet access ka naman yata. Try to dig deeper online. Avoid watching those vloggers na feeling journalists. Haha.

I really liked the Molvodan Eurovision song and I'm thinking of naming my future child Trenulețul. Do you think he might have any problems if he travels to Moldova or Romania?

Yes. The poor kid will be mocked mercilessly. Please consider another name, perhaps something out of Norse mythology. ;-)

I don’t really know what other powers and what to use them for.

I am the god of mistakes. Sometimes mistakes mean progress, sometimes they turn out to be something brilliant, but most often people are just lazy. I would make people more determined so that they would not be afraid to start something new and make a lot of mistakes - in any case, they would learn something, and I would feel very powerful.

Oh Ninetails. At first someone might think big deal it's a fox with a bunch of fails. But it's a straight up Yokia with is a godlike spirit/demon in Japanese mythology. It's a kitsune. Yes the fox ladies. They all start off as literal foxes. They used to believe that foxes could live forever so long as they don't die before they become godlike. They grow more tails as they grow older & more powerful. The Ninetails (kyūbi no kitsune) is the most powerful and her name was Tamamo no Mae. She's featured in many Japanese mouths as THE ninetailed fox demon

The basics - Lucifer plans revolution, 1/3 of the angels join his side, I become aware of the plot and enlist. Without Lucifer's knowledge, I pass intel to the big guy. God's not pleased with my deception but nevertheless, he shows gratitude for my efforts and thwarts the rebellion, casting them out of heaven and I am promoted as the new angle of light.

Which do you believe in astrology...mythology..religion or psychology?

deysurasree2001’s Profile PhotoSurasree Dey✔️
I believe in psychology most probably.
Astrology is false hope giving for me or it generates a sense of fear in me, so I don't like to believe in it🙂,
I don't believe in much mythology like this..that.. brings bad luck🙂 like a black cat crossing our way, which makes no-sense to me
I follow religion principles like live your present situation, do good, and calm mind, anger is no good.

Why were there so many gods in ancient Egypt? Do they really believe in Gods?

Ancient Egypt did not have the so-called "religious worship" as people understand it today. Many of their "gods" were barely the names of their ancestors, while some "gods" were fictional and anthropomorphic "gods" such as animals, which was a reflection of the animistic belief of the Chinese people.
Amun was a "God" invented by the ancient Egyptians to represent their patriarchal ancestor. At first he was just a local "God" of Thebes. From the 11th Dynasty, after the descendants of Narmer (禹 Yu) reunified Egypt, Amun's status gradually increased, and finally merged with the sun "God" RA and became the highest "God" in Egypt. Amun belief is the source of Chinese Confucian belief. His image is the most beautiful man imagined by the ancient Egyptians according to their own appearance. Standing in front of Amun's statue, the local guide said that Amun looks too much like Chinese. If you look at Amun's eyes carefully. Details like "Mongolian pleat" are carved out. The ancient Egyptians had a good grasp of ethnic characteristics, and their image sculptures were natural and realistic.
The last pic is a statue of 桀 Jie (horemheb) standing before Amun. The fifth pic shows 桀 Jie (horemheb) kneeling in front of Atum to offer up a sacrifice. Atum is Pangu in Chinese mythology. The first pic and the second pic are Thutmose III and his birth name. He is the King 槐(Huai) of the Xia Dynasty (Ancient Egypt). The fourth pic is Hathor, wearing ox horn, holding the Ankh symbol (The prototype of the word "子"). Hathor is 织女(Zhinü) in Chinese mythology.

We've almost always had multiple dogs. We were down to one, and though we originally decided to not have more for a while since it makes last minute planning more difficult, we wanted a companion for our current dog. This guy is only about five or six, so he'll be around a while.
We looked at shelters, but either the dogs weren't friendly with other/small dogs, or they were afraid of my bro and Thor.
We weren't looking for a specific breed or anything, but my bro loves shepherds. A friend of his from Arizona called him up saying a neighbor was getting divorced and could no longer afford the keep his dogs and if we would be interested in taking them off his hands.
We asked like a hundred questions and when it was done we wanted to meet with them. The best part though, is nearly all of the pets we've had were named after characters in Greek mythology. So when he told us their names, we were like 😳
So we drove over with our dog, spent some time introducing them, and everything turned out great, and they rode home with us.
It is an adjustment having big dogs, though. Here's an action shot of Achilles just as he was knocking me over while trying to take pictures. He wanted cuddles lol!

Oh, das wäre ja ganz zauberhaft, ich bin grade sehr großer Fan *^*
Ich hätte glaub ich zwei meiner Playlists, die ich verknüpfen wollen würde; da ich mich nicht entscheiden könnte, müsste das wohl wöchentlich wechseln :D
Die eine wäre natürlich meine gehegte und gepflegte, ständig aktualisierte Musical Playlist. Sie trägt den Titel "Autofahren mit Musicals" und beinhaltet neben meinen ewigen Faves vor allem Nummern, die man sehr gut mitsingen kann - perfekt für lange Autofahrten eben^^ Zum Beispiel Wait for Me aus Hadestown, Defying Gravity oder I'm Alive aus Next to Normal, aber auch solche Spaßnummern wie Verlassen im Wald (hands down bestes Lied aus Frozen II) oder der halbe The Guy Who Didn't Like Musicals Soundtrack :D
(alleine der Gedanke, dass jemand nichts Böses ahnend dieses Profil anklickt und dann Jeff Blim "Show Me Your Hands" runterreißt? Poetic Cinema)
Meine andere Wahl wäre meine Demigötter Playlist, ein Begleitprodukt unserer PnP-Runde. Die besteht zum Teil aus Mythology Songs (z.B. Achilles Heel), und zum Teil aus Liedern, die zu meinem Charakter passen (z.B. Song of the Sea aus dem gleichnamigen Film)^^

What are your favourite kinds of subjects to paint?

Oo, good question! In some ways, I think I’m still finding my feet as a painter; I only tried painting during the masters and hadn’t really painted much prior (I had always worked in pencils/coloured pencils, mostly). Luckily, I think I gelled with acrylics pretty quickly, or at least, my tutor thought so and encouraged me to keep painting.
Topic wise, I’m very much drawn to fantasy, mythology, history and folklore. I’m not *overly* wild on painting people, but that’s partly because I still find that tricky! (In terms of getting skin tones right, etc).
I enjoy painting textures, so painting clothing I find enjoyable too (particularly if it’s detailed in nature!). I reckon I’d enjoy anything that’s quite elaborate or requires a great attention to detail. I haven’t painted much of it yet in general, but nature was also enjoyable to paint, with being able to be looser and freer with the brushstrokes, to make it look more natural and authentic. I’m still finding my way I think, but this is what I enjoy the most so far! :)
