Scar, who was present when Roy Mustang gave up on his revenge against Envy for Riza Hawkeye, and when she was used as a bribe to control him, found himself slightly confused when everyone in the military claimed to have never met the Colonel’s girlfriend. They are together at all times, he thinks, angrily.
I think the “women are mysterious” thing can also come from:
1) Women actually being quite clear, but not telling men what they want to hear. ”She said she doesn’t want to talk to me? So many mixed messages and confusing signals!”
2) Women not having cheat codes. ”I tried being nice, and she didn’t have sex with me. I tried being an asshole, and she didn’t have sex with me. Come on, there’s got to be some kind of solution to this puzzle!”
3) Women not being a hive mind. ”First a woman told me that she likes guys with big muscles. Then the very next day a woman told me she thinks muscles aren’t attractive at all. Make up your mind, women!”
4) An individual woman doing something confusing, and instead of asking “why is she doing this now?” men ask “why do women always do this?”
Don’t forget “actual unwillingness to make an effort to understand women as a result of profound and privileged laziness.” That’s actually the one I run into the most.
"Women are confusing." "No we’re not. Everything I’m saying makes linear, logical sense. I could draw you a fucking flowchart of everything I’ve just said. You just don’t want to listen to me because that would mean stirring from your stagnant, self-satisfied torpor, confident that, because I’m a woman, you don’t ACTUALLY have to think about or engage with anything I say." "Wow, like, all that? Super confusing.”
This was recorded by the Portsmouth Sinfonia in an experiment where all the members of the orchestra would swap instruments with each other and attempt to play them to the best of their ability.
favorite things about this
literally all the brass starts to get the hang of it and then the crescendos happen and everyone is like FUCK FUCK FUCK??? FUCK. JUST. BLOW RLY HARD.
the strings are lazy but also the same. like u can tell a lot of the ppl w/ the stringed instruments may already basically know how to play stringed instruments. like there’s definitely a section at the beginning where you hear a good portion going “oh yeah this is like. a smaller/bigger version of what i do.”
all you hear of any woodwinds is just “pffffttt??? pFFFTTTT???? PFFFFFTTTT I SAID PFFFFTTTT!!!!!” bc woodwinds are fucking HARD and you hear after like the first crescendo half of them just give up. they give up. they’re done. fuck this it tastes weird and my lips hurt.
that trumpet. that person is fucking TRYING man they fucking GOT this. they may not have figured out notes but they figured out LOUD and they GOT this.
