I still wonder how she would know about all of these incidents. I don’t deny that she would do this, but I wonder how she would know.
I should probably at least attempt to be vaguely productive today…
I was all jazzed up to paint this morning but then I didn’t feel like it so I haven’t yet… but I should
Or do something else
Just do something yeah cool
which fucking fedora wearing friendzoned nerd made this thing
yeah but notice that the seal’s intent is to eat those fish and the shark offers a mutually beneficial relationship for them
in which a dudebro unintentionally makes a really accurate analogy for the reason that they’re single forever
That’s a whale shark. They’re docile and in no way threatening to people or those fish depicted. Seals, by contrast, will attack people, possibly out of a frustrated sense of entitlement combined with poor socialization skills.
Assorted tessellation attempts from tonight
I think I like the crabs the best… but the betta fish-inspired were fun to try, and the little flaming salamanders, and the bees are kinda fun too though not really a tessellation
But the crabs
They have potential…
Here’s some stuff I did
To set the scene, the (poorly posed) question is referring to comments made by former Treasury Security and Harvard University President Lawrence Summers, who suggested that genetic differences could explain why there are fewer girls in science. Yup, he really was Treasury secretary and president of Harvard.
Neil deGrasse Tyson’s answer is, um, out of this world. There, I said it. Let me have this one.
IM FUCKING SCREAMING
IM IN FUCKING STITCHES
the only thing funnier than this video are the comments on it
Oh god, I’ve actually gotten the “I wish I had kissed you just now” text from guys I wasn’t interested in…worst thing ever.
A bit of a side-project, because of WFRP. Which may be more of an excuse than anything, as I’m already considering at least 20 more Clanrats because they’re currently a mixture of hand weapons and spears (possibly the Blood Island set, because their Rat Ogres are lovely).
The Globadiers is one of the reasons I went for the army - there’s some wonderful Bright, Glowing Globes out there (all highlights and stuff), and I ended up not doing most of that - I took a crack, and it ended up just looking like the brush has slipped.
Not entirely sure what I’m doing with the bases yet - the lines (second rank) look too painted on, while the flock just looks half-finished. I’d be tempted to re-base everything on resin cobblestones, but that’s quickly going to get Very expensive for an entire army.
Last month, middle-school girls in Evanston, Ill., rebelled against their school dress code by showing up to class wearing leggings en mass. Administrators at Haven Middle School say that girls in leggings are “distracting to boys”; girls counter that they simply want to attend class in the comfort that leggings provide and don’t deserve to be penalized for how boys respond. I talked to Sophie Hasty, 13, one of the leaders of the protest, about the agony of getting “dress-coded” at school, the political power of Instagram, and the benefits of leggings.
But this year, teachers started to get stricter about it and giving stupid reasons for it. The reason was basically: “boys.” It’s a lot like saying that if guys do something to harass us, it’s our fault for that. We’re the ones being punished for what guys do.
I asked a teacher to tell us about an incident where a girl was wearing leggings and a guy was getting distracted. There hasn’t been one.
I’ve caught myself pulling down my shirt when I’m walking past teachers so they will notice the leggings a little less. But now I’ve caught myself in public doing that, too, and that’s making me annoyed. I don’t want to be in public and worry about people seeing me in leggings. It’s not a big deal to me, and the school is trying to make me feel bad about it.
[Boys] think the dress code is against them, too, because they don’t like having it blamed on them by teachers, being told that the dress code is their fault. They don’t think it’s fair to them or us.
20 Disney’s Atlantis Facts (You may or may not know)
- After Hunchback of Notre Dame was released, Disney decided they didn’t want to do another musical. Instead, they chose to do an Action-Adventure film inspired by the works of Jules Verne.
- The weaponry used is correct to the time period of early 20th century. The film features the Lee Enflied, the Lewis Gun, the Broomhandle Mauser and a variant of the Luger.
- The creation of the Atlantean language was done by the same man who developed the Klingon language for the Star Trek films.
- The filmmakers became interested in the readings of Edgar Cayce and decided to incorporate some of his ideas. (Edgar Cayce is an American psychic who allegedly possessed the ability to answer questions on subjects as varied as healing, reincarnation, wars, Atlantis and future events while in a trance.)
- Vinnie’s last name “Santorini” is actually the name of an ancient chain of volcanic islands in the Mediterranean (probably explains his obsession with explosives).
- They utilized all three Disney Animation studies, employing 250 animators, artist and technicians.
- The Crew actually traveled 800 feet underground in New Mexico’s Carlsbad Cavern to view subterranean trails, which they used as the base model for the movie.
- A Japanese anime film “Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water” and “Atlantis: The Lost Empire” were both inspired by the novel “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea”.
- American comic book artist Mike Mignola creator of the series Hellboy worked on the film.
- Joss Whedon was the first writer involved with the film. Whedon is bet known as the creator of the television series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and also directed Marvel’s The Avengers.
- Because the movie was planned as an Action-Adventure, the production crew made up t-shirts that read, “ATLANTIS” - fewer songs, more explosions.
- The final scene was created by combining many 24 inch (61cm) pieces of paper. Each piece was carefully drawn and combined with animated vehicles flying across the scene. The entire piece reaches an equivalent of an 18,000 inch (457.2 m) piece of paper that the camera slowly pulled away from.

Reblogging for an amazing yer underrated Disney movie.
There’s more to Santorini’s name than the just being the name of a volcanic island chain, some have proposed that Theran/Minoan eruption in the mid-2nd millennium BCE (somewhere between 1650-1500 BCE probably) may have inspired the Atlantis myths. It was a Plinian eruption and one of the largest eruptions in history (having ejected approximately 100 cubic km of ejecta, as of data collected in 2006), and it destroyed the island of Thera and the Minoan city there (Akrotiri) and nearby islands such as Crete (where there were Minoan settlement as well).
