I like cute things and think too much. I like X-Files, Carnivale, The Fall and Twin Peaks. Pretty pictures, trauma/survivor stuff, disability things, assorted else.

So…everyone knows anime body proportions are idealized and kind of insane.  But then I find this woman online. This amazing human with HER ANIME LEGS! SUPER LONG SKINNY ANIME LEGS! WHAT?! HOW??   
So I even found a picture of venus online to compare.  And like, now I’m going to take my stubby short legs over there to that sad corner. 

holy shit her legs are practically canon

hER LEGS ARE PEFECT AND HER COSTUME IS SO WELL MADE I WISH TO HUG YOU LADY

Those shoes. Wow, this is incredibly well done.

I can’t sleep because I keep thinking about Bob Ross and Mister Rogers piloting a Jaeger.

Now you’re thinking about it.

The gentlest Jaeger.  It sits the kaijus down and talks to them about their feelings until the tantrum stops, and then they do art therapy.

Excuse me… What.

what the actual fuck

Proof you don’t have to actively hate gay people to be homophobic. To be demeaning as fuck. To see them as less than human, but just your own personal toys.

#bonus points#girls apparently cant be gay#or at least not the kind of gay that matters

I tried to explain to my sister about the fetishization of queer folks and if she asks again I’m just gonna show her this

I don’t often say of people on the internet that they shouldn’t have children, but this one shouldn’t have children.

Let us strip the “they-of-all-people” argument down to its very basics: gentiles telling Jews that we killed six million of your people and that as a result it is you, not us, who have lessons to learn; that it is you, not us, who need to clean up your act. It is an argument of atrocious, spiteful insanity. Do not accept it; turn it back on those who offer it. For it is us, not you, who should know better.

Everyone can differentiate between being an Anti-Zionist and Anti-Semitic apart from Zionist. 

Lets be clear with this. Being against the state of Israel doesn’t make you Anti-Semitic. I mean could you imagine calling these Jews Anti-Semitic?

Being anti-Zionist isn’t inherently anti-semitic. TOKENIZING THE NETUREI KARTA IS ANTI-SEMITIC. 

Why? Because in your rush to prove that you aren’t anti-semitic by tokenizing a Jewish sect that is visibly anti-zionist, you show an incredible intellectual laziness when it comes to social justice as a whole and the place of Jews within the movement.

A few points you need to know.

  1. The Neturei Karta believe that the Holocaust happened because Jews assimilated too much. They mock and spit on the genocide of their own people. They even attended Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s conference on Holocaust Denial.
  2. They are profoundly misogynistic. Did you wonder why there are no women in any pictures of the NK at anti-Zionist rallies? It’s because they oppress the living hell out of them. They literally believe women should not be seen in public. Your activism is not intersectional here. 
  3. They are opposed to Zionism not because of solidarity with the Palestinians, but because they believe that Jews should only be in Israel during the messianic age. Their opposition is religious in nature, not driven by compassion for the Palestinians. When/if the messianic age comes, they’ll be perfectly happy removing the Palestinians by any means they see fit.
  4. They have marched in solidarity with fascist, xenophobic and racist political parties like Jobbik.

There are many, many more problems with them. There are Jewish groups that are ACTUALLY motivated by justice for ALL people, but in your lazy efforts to prove that you aren’t anti-semitic, you are not only showing that you really have no interest in learning anything about Jews, you have supported a group that is sexist, racist, fascist and altogether awful. You could have done the tiniest bit of research and discovered the Jewish Voice for Peace, but that would take too much effort, wouldn’t it? 

What you’ve proven here is that you only care about Jews insofar as you can defend yourself against charges of anti-semitism. You’ve failed spectacular on that front. 

Mazel Tov! /sarcasm

Also, there are many, many Zionists who do know the difference between anti-Zionism and anti-semitism, but you’ve shown that you truly don’t know what Zionism is outside of a fancy way of saying “Israel.”

Here is a Science fair project presented by a girl in a secondary school in Sussex . In it she took filtered water and divided it into two parts. The first part she heated to boiling in a pan on the stove, and the second part she heated to boiling in a microwave. Then after cooling she used the water to water two identical plants to see if there would be any difference in the growth between the normal boiled water and the water boiled in a microwave. She was thinking that the structure or energy of the water may be compromised by microwave. As it turned out, even she was amazed at the difference, after the experiment which was repeated by her class mates a number of times and had the same result.
It has been known for some years that the problem with microwaved anything is not the radiation people used to worry about, it’s how it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it.
Microwaves don’t work different ways on different substances. Whatever you put into the microwave suffers the same destructive process. Microwaves agitate the molecules to move faster and faster. This movement causes friction which denatures the original make-up of the substance. It results in destroyed vitamins, minerals, proteins and generates the new stuff called radiolytic compounds, things that are not found in nature.
So the body wraps it in fat cells to protect itself from the dead food or it eliminates it fast. Think of all the Mothers heating up milk in these ‘Safe’ appliances. What about the nurse in Canada that warmed up blood for a transfusion patient and accidentally killed him when the blood went in dead. But the makers say it’s safe. But proof is in the pictures of living plants dying!

NO, YOU PIG-IGNORANT ASSWIPES.
SOME KID’S CLASS PROJECT IS NOT REAL SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH. YOU’VE HEARD OF “DOUBLE BLIND”, RIGHT? CALL ME WHEN IT’S PUBLISHED IN NATURE.

the structure or energy of the water

what the fuck does that even mean you realize that a water molecule is made up of three fucking atoms and if you rearrange it it isn’t water anymore and you would fucking notice

the problem with microwaved anything is not the radiation people used to worry about

Here is a handy diagram I drew of all the different types of radiation:

Microwaves != nuclear reactors, so calm your tits.

it’s how it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it

…do you understand what DNA is and how eating works? DNA is a jumble of protein in the middle of each cell and it tells the cells in that particular organism how to make more cells. Your body does not care about whether your food has any DNA in it or not. The chemicals it cares about are things like vitamins and sugars, as well as inorganic shit like salt.
(You can denature DNA by heating it or using chemicals like urea. It is like what happens when you fry an egg, which is basically a big glob of protein—the strands break apart and it looks like tiny white strings. Very cool.)

Microwaves agitate the molecules to move faster and faster.

I…just…that is the fucking definition of heat, whether you’re heating something over a flame or in a microwave or using the Sun. The difference is that microwaves mostly affect the water molecules in your food and they don’t need to use as much heat. Water boils at 100°C, which is just about as hot as water can get before it just turns into steam; but that’s like the lowest setting on your oven. Oven- or stove-cooked food tastes different partly because it uses higher temperatures and partly because heat is transferred in a different way.

This movement causes friction

That’s not what friction is.

It results in destroyed vitamins, minerals, proteins and generates the new stuff called radiolytic compounds, things that are not found in nature.

Let’s take these one at a time.
Vitamins are classified as water-soluble or fat-soluble. So cooking things in water will dissolve the water-soluble vitamins (C and all the B’s). Just plain heat doesn’t do that, so microwaving veggies—which keeps the water in—is actually a healthier option.
Proteins: Breaking the chemical bonds in proteins (denaturing) is a part of any cooking. However, denatured protein is still nutritious—that’s why you can meet your protein intake with foods like fried eggs and baked chicken.
Minerals are just chemical elements, like off the periodic table—sodium, iron, potassium. (Vitamins and proteins are very complex combinations of elements.)
Which brings me to the “radiolytic compound” bullshit. When you talk about breaking apart, say, iron—you’re talking about breaking down the iron atoms themselves. Which is a whole lot different than breaking the bonds between atoms. It takes hella radiation. You need shit like gamma rays—the OOOH SCARY NUCULAR radiation—which we’ve already established do not come from your microwave.

things that are not found in nature

What the shit does that even mean? You all know radioactive elements occur in nature, right? In rocks and also in living cells. That’s right, you have this radioactive kind of carbon INSIDE YOU. You get it by eating those delicious plants. We can tell how long ago something died by how much of it is left.
Tons of shit that occurs naturally is horribly bad for you. And tons of shit that never existed until we cooked it up is great for you—like the chemical compounds in a lot of medications.
PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE THIS SHIT ARE WHY CHILDHOOD DISEASES THAT CAUSED SERIOUS ILLNESSES AND/OR DEATH THAT WE NEARLY ERADICATED WITH VACCINES ARE NOW COMING BACK AND WHY CONSPIRACY THEORIST TWATS ARE ASKING CITY COUNCIL NOT TO FLUORIDATE THE WATER AND WHY GLOBAL WARMING WILL WRECK OUR FUCKING PLANET.
LERN 2 SCIENCE. Think before you reblog. And microwave your veggies.

This was incredibly amusing to read. Thank you so much for sciencing.

Tell me, was the kid dumping steaming-hot microwaved water on the one plant, and room-temperature purified water on the other?

Peanut-head Bug - Fulgora laternaria 

Fulgorids stand out among the Hemipterans for its unique head shape. Among the neotropical species Fulgora laternaria is perhaps the most striking, with its head resembling a big unshelled peanut.

Fulgora laternaria grows to about 8 cm long and its mouth is like a straw; it can not bite, so all it can do is suck juices from plants. In the rainforest from Mexico to Argentina where this bug is found, there are so many things that want to eat the Peanut-head Bug that it needs a lot of defenses. Scientists think that the head is supposed to imitate a lizard’s head, a complex anti-predator scheme the bug uses. The Peanut-head Bug has large spots on its underwings that look like large eyes when the bug spreads its wings. If these don’t scare away predators, the bug releases a skunk-like spray. 

Other common names: Lantern fly, Peanut bug, Peanut-headed lanternfly, Alligator bug, Jequitiranaboia, Machaca, Chicharra-machacuy, Víbora voladora, Mariposa caimán, Cocoposa.
