Congratulations, gamer girls—you’re officially at the top of the food chain when it comes to games. A new study released by the Entertainment Software Association has revealed that adult women now occupy the largest demographic in the gaming industry. Women over 18 made up a whopping 36 percent of the gaming population, followed by adult men at 35 percent. 

I cannot wait for men to cry about this

I’m just crying tears of joy because there’s no more hiding behind the “mainly male demographic” bs that’s been pulled for years.

The Department of Microscopic Marvels is in awe of the work by photomicrographer Danny Sanchez, who specifically seeks out and photographs precious gems that have been rejected by jewelers because of imperfections known as inclusions. In gemology an inclusion is a characteristic enclosed within the gemstone, which can effect the clarity of the stone, and whose presence can either decrease or sometimes dramatically increase the stone’s value.

For his project, entitled Gemstone Inclusions, Sanches uses his microphotography skills to capture the beauty of these imperfections and provide a glimpse of the fantastic and alien landscapes that exist inside the gems, much too small for our eyes to see unaided. Each a teeny weeny Fortress of Solitude.

Head over to PetaPixel to learn about how Danny Sanchez stages and creates these marvelous photos. Then be sure to visit his own website to get a look at more of his work at a much higher resolution. He has prints available too.

HEY FUN FACT

Blood oranges are an actual thing

Like a real fruit

As in a hesperiduim berry variety of orange fucking fruit

And thus the color “blood orange” is a color based off of the color of said fruit

And it’d be nice if we stop pretending that all colors can be described by ROYGBIV (haha though do people even remember indigo or like accept violet when used descriptively because people shirk when that’s used haha what the hell do I know)

But seriously we have a myriad of color words at our disposal let’s call a spade a spade and blood orange fucking blood orange because no it’s not just red and it’s not pretentious to fucking say so

oh my god 

do you reall y think people dont know kno what a blodo orang is oh my god

have you hear dof a JOKE

what is a joke??? i don’t understand, please help

nah tho the crux of the joke here is “don’t use words because words are pretentious” and it’s just. it’s boring. it’s worn thin. we are in a time beyond time. the fabric of reality wears thin. the border between this world and some dread hellscape is thinned every time that joke is trotted out again. that’s how jokes work i’m pretty sure.

we live in a world full of so many wonders and things to delight in and people are still like “haha, oh MAN, the funniest joke is:: colors?? we have words for those? lmao, fuck words, generally, imo,”

anyway i guess ultimately the point here is just, it’s cool to use words, it’s ok, everything’s ok, we’re all going to be okay and i am so sorry. it’s ok. we’ll all be fine.

Sorry I was reminded of the existence of the gif of the one dude from that one fashion show going like “Stop being pretentious it’s not blood orange it’s red” and like dude no you’re just fucking wrong because “red” is a really broad category that encompasses a host of shades and tints and hues but “blood orange” at least pares it fucking down haha whatever

Whatever
