This soldier has been thru Survival School & learned his lessons well. He’s giving the sign of “coercion” with his left hand. These hand signs are taught in survival school to be used by POW’s as a method of posing messages back to our intelligence services who may view the photo or video. He was obviously being coerced into shaking hands with her. It’s ironic how little she knew that he would so inform us about the photo-perhaps because she’s never understood our military to begin with.
Hey, guys! So, we’re all familiar with Cyberpunk and Steampunk, but there are so many more alternate histories/speculative science fiction genres out there! I came across this handy-dandy infographic and figured I could share a bit of these punk genres for anyone interested.
Steampunk Roughly covers the Western world during the mid- to late-19th century (ie: Victorian era, US wild west, etc.), and sometimes up to the Edwardian era.
Dieselpunk 1920s up through WWII, ending at just about the Cold War.
Decopunk A cleaner, artistic, more “optimistic” version of Dieselpunk (same time period)
Clockpunk Covers the time of the Renaissance (think da Vinci)
Okay, uh, TW for graphic descriptions of rapein the Splatterpunk explanation link (specifically as examples of ~look how edgy and without boundaries this subgenre is~), but I think all the other links should be safe.
Also, Arcanepunk is a theme with combinations of magic and science/technology, or with technology so complex it appears to be magic.
I know Fyo and I really want Romanpunk to be a thing hahaha
After being a college writing tutor for over a year, I thought I would share my advice with all you awesome people on tumblr. This is how I write essays, but if you’ve got more tips, feel free to add them below.
Happy writing. You can do it!
btw also easybib.com is a great citation website and they also have an app that you can use to scan the barcode of a book and it’ll give you the citation for it which is awesome especially if you are going to a library to look up info and dont wanna have to write down all the info about the author name, publisher, etc.
As a nationally certified college English tutor, can I just say that this is the best advice to ever be given so quickly?
