A lot of you people against Gamergate talk about how the campaign is about harassment. How you’re against harassment and how, ergo, you’re against Gamergate, and how the campaign started as harassment of women. It’s a hate movement.
That’s understandable. To use the understatement of the century,…
They could starting pointing fingers… Or creating a whole new brand of honey…
In military slang, Predator drone operators often refer to kills as ‘bug splats’, since viewing the body through a grainy video image gives the sense of an insect being crushed.
To challenge this insensitivity as well as raise awareness of civilian casualties, an artist collective…
Researchers have found trapped in amber a rare dinosaur-age scene of a spider attacking a wasp caught in its web.
The piece of amber, which contains 15 intact strands of spider silk, provides the first fossil evidence of such an assault, the researchers said. It was excavated in a Burmese mine and dates back to the Early Cretaceous, between 97 million and 110 million years ago.
"This was a male wasp that suddenly found itself trapped in a spider web. This was the wasp’s worst nightmare, and it never ended. The wasp was watching the spider just as it was about to be attacked, when tree resin flowed over and captured both of them," George Poinar, Jr., a zoology professor at Oregon State University, said in a statement.
Both the spider and wasp species are today extinct.
I keep wondering how fast tree resin flows to actually stop those normally very agile animals from scurrying away. It’s almost as if they were instantaneous becoming trapped in the resin. I always kinda wondered about that.
Remember earlier this year when these weird mystery structures were found in the Amazon and nobody knew what they were? MYSTERY FINALLY SOLVED:
IT’S ADORABLE GOLDEN SPIDER BABIES!
If I wasn’t an arachnophobe I’d say that’s adorable!
Mercury, Venus, and Saturn align with the Pyramids of Giza for the first time in 2,737 years on December 3, 2012
i’ve never reblogged anything so fast
The last time this happened, an Egyptian Pharaoh was there to see it.
Neat picture but I’m a little skeptical because Venus and Mercury are closer to the sun than Earth whereas Saturn is farther away, yet these are all occupying pretty much the same part of the sky and there’s no Sun to be seen. It may very well have happened and I hope so because it’s very cool but I can’t work out the logistics in my head. Anyone got more on this because I’d love to be more sure about it
Tumblr and his fixation with Michael Bay’s Transformers movies…

Tumblr suggested this blog to me today. What are you trying to say about how I draw butts, Tumblr?
Because I appreciate the advice. <3 I’m learning so much already!
THIS IS NOT A TROLL
REPEAT, THIS IS NOT A TROLL
They only announced it today and it’s A COMPLETE FUCK UP ALREADY
Well not only do I not put much stock in the chatter coming from the proudly uninformed puppets in this video, but I think this disturbing piece of promotional art doesn’t reflect the actual plot (hue hue) or character (re)design at all. Why do I think that? Because the alternative is just too good to be true! Imagine if Hasbro (and AllSpark) really WERE making all the ponies alicorn princesses! Holy CRAP would the streets run red with pocket-spaghetti! And I would be out there dancing in it and drinking the delicious brony tears, while proclaiming “I told you so! Of course I didn’t believe it when I told you so, because I’m a huge troll, but still - I TOLD YOU SO!" If the mane 6 were to all become alicorn princesses, that would be so well-played I would surely delete my blogs and lay down my "major brony trollblogger" crown at the feet of Hasbro.
That Mysterious “S” Thing We Used to Draw (by the1janitor)
We used to draw this as kids and it’s always confused me. It still really bothers me tbh.
This is really creepy tbh.
yeah we used to draw these! around 2002. at the time i was told it was like the slipknot logo but now i know it’s totally not. but we did used to get in trouble for drawing them.
we never got in trouble with them. I had them all over my school planner lol.
(We did call them ‘super S’)
There’s this awesome book I read called ‘The People in the Playground’ which concerns the observations of an anthropologist on children’s folklore: the stuff that kids independently teach one another in school yards and playgrounds that has no real connection to adult lore and media. This is a great example of it, as are hand clapping and jump rope verses.
If you can finish the lines “Miss Mary Mack Mack Mack all dressed in black black black…” or ‘Hinky Pinky Ponky, Daddy had a donkey…”or “Miss Suzy had a steamboat…” or “Engine Engine number nine…”
stop and think about where you learned them.
It probably wasn’t from an adult or out of a book or in any formal way. It was from another kid; someone a grade ahead of you or someone’s older sibling or something. Who learned it the same way.
This is CHILD lore. Sometimes a fad will come and go in a single age cohort, sometimes it’ll last for generations. It’s kind of awesome.
The idea of child lore and a distinct child culture is really interesting, especially when you consider that children have a few traditions that go back hundreds of years.
For example: did you ever play “Quaker’s meeting?” Quaker’s meeting has begun, no more laughter, no more fun…that dates back two centuries.
And of course there’s “Ring around the rosie,” which goes all the way back to the time of the black plague.
Children pass these things down among themselves as part of a legacy they lack the context to fully understand; but you could say the same thing about most adult traditions. That unbroken chain of shared knowledge connects their play to the play of children from hundreds of years ago, without any adult input or encouragement.
This is also cool http://www.snopes.com/language/literary/rosie.asp
I learned yesterday that when you see a bee on the ground that isn’t moving, it’s not necessarily dead, it’s probably just dead tired from carrying lots of pollen and needs re-energising. So if you mix a tiny bit of water with some sugar and let it drink it will give it the boost it needs to continue on its way. Bizarrely, this exact thing happened today! I found a knackered bee, mixed up some sugar water, gave it a drink and watched it guzzle and guzzle then suddenly come back to life. It was amazing! Thank you patrick, it was an excellent tip that i’ll never forget and will continue to pass on to others!
boost this because look bEES ARE DYING AND WE REALLY NEED TO HELP THEM!!!!!!
Help them, sweetlings!
Go little bee, go!!! Drink your fill and go back to making the world a better place <3 <3 <3
I can’t fucking breathe.
I hate y’all so much 😂
ooh i thought of another one
Gamergaters prefer their imaginary sockpuppet women to real ones that might disagree with them. AGC
Hey you know I have this weird recollection of a woman actually making her own game recently, any idea what happened to her?
ahaha vivivian is some reskin of tomoko kuroki
""Women should be more like this" - A women" - A man
can’t find it again but a few hours ago i saw a post about a vivian foot fetish subforum on reddit
these are people who care more about a fictional woman’s interest in video games than a real one’s
laughing my whole ass off
So rather then actually acknowledging this, you strawman the comic because Vivian isn’t real?
Plus, this is based of gamergate’s views as a whole.
Why don’t you make a game with pro-multiculture and diversity instead trying to force other game devs to do so?
you mean like this?
because oh wait, this is the kind of vile shit that happens
I now have a strange craving for Goofus and Gallant bukkake
