Final for my Time Arts class. Nothing gets you in touch with your own anger quite like listening to this and thinking about all the times you’ve been objectified and belittled.
From the ISO’s kick-off forum “Why You Should Join the Socialists & Change the World”.
"Starbucks baristas make about $9/hr. If they make 3 drinks for $5 each, they pay for their hour of their labor & supplies. At 5 drinks they pay for themselves & a coworker. At 10 the whole store for an hour. At peak hours they make 2-300 drinks & see none of the profits. Every drink after 3 is theft."
I am a terrible INTP. I do enjoy playing with spreadsheets, but I have a moral objection to how the economy works and thus am fairly sure being an economist would end in super-villainy (or at least vigilantism).
Coming to the unwelcome realization that you are trapped in a Lovecraftian friendship like “You’re my best friend and I think you’re amazing but I’m pretty sure that if you started resurrecting corpses I would just shrug and help out”
Hey. Hey xanthossamurai. Hey.
Diana has no time for your sexist rhetoric.

If you don’t know your personality type, take the test here.
Rules: Find out what characters share the same personality type as you here and list the characters that you find relevant below. (I’m eliminating the tagging portion - anyone who wants to can and should play!)
My type: INTP (Architect) (I sometimes test as INFP, but I blame female socialization for that - and the fact that I blame female socialization is another point in favor of my being more NT than NF)
I’ve been explicitly compared to… at least four of these characters by people who know me. I’m pretty sure someone told me I was acting like L within the last month.
at dinner last night, a coworker was talking about hanging out with his white friends and getting fed up with the racist jokes, and asked them to tell a white people joke. nobody had any, so he googled and found these. after a few of them, people were a lot less comfortable.
white folks, next time you hear a racist joke, maybe lead with one of these in response. tag this “I’m white” when you reblog it, if you are.
oh god i tried to explain i’d’ve and y’all’d’ve to a friend who is a korean exchange student and she just kind of stared at me in horror for a minute lmao
story about a dude that gets rejected by a hot girl and the movie shows him trying to win her over and at the end it turns out the hot girl is a lesbian and she had a crush on this chubby girl the dude totally rudely rejected earlier and the two super cute girls smooch and the dude cries and no one gives a shit
“Fiscally conservative but socially liberal” is a hip, trendy way of saying “I still think poor kids are being too grabby with this whole ‘wanting food’ thing, but I also like weed.”
I’ve been calling myself ‘fiscally conservative’ since high school, because I think money we spend on bombs and shiny new jets and freakish Orwellian police state measures and the prison industrial complex would be better spent on education and social welfare. And, well, yes, also that we should legalize and tax weed. If we’re going to be soulless capitalists we could at least choose to be making tax revenue instead of throwing so many brown kids in jail for things white kids do every weekend.
Basically, I’m a socialist and I’m pretty sure I’m still more fiscally conservative than most people currently running as conservatives. Which is kind of hilarious.
The first animal you see is your patronus!
Like all living things, humans are bioluminescent (meaning we glow) – We glow brightest during the afternoon. - weird, interesting & funny facts
i’ve been staring at this for like 5 minutes. so.. what. i don’t think people glow. but this is telling me that we actually emit visible light.. especially in the afternoon?? am i reading this right or what
"all living things" plants. when do the plants glow
science side of tumblr pls
I’m not from the science side of tumblr, but here’s the answer anyways:
Basically, all living things are bioluminescent because every living thing has chemical reactions occurring in their cells. The energy created from these chemical reactions physically manifests as light, thus… all living things naturally glow.
However, this glow cannot be seen by the human eye. In fact, the only way they’ve ever captured this light is through special cameras. Using these ultra special cameras, they’ve imaged subjects’ bodies over 24 hour periods. It has been found out that humans emit the most of this glow during the afternoon (about 4 PM), it is the weakest in the morning (about 10 AM), and the brightest light is emitted from the cheeks, neck, and forehead.
The light is about a thousand times weaker than what humans can perceive.
Basically, it’s a side effect of metabolic reactions. It’s been suspected that humans are bioluminescent for years, but they weren’t able to confirm it until recently thanks to technology and a man named Masaki Kobayashi from the Tohoku Institute of Technology.
10/10 time to answer
you are now offiicially from the science side of tumblr.
and thank you
you know whatd be a fun exercise
get a writer and an artist together. artist does a sketch, writer writes a handful of paragraphs. they give them to each other.
writer has to write a handful of paragraphs on the scene depicted in the sketch, and it cant be just like, describing it. artist has to draw a new sketch from the writing.
it’d be a neat lil’ flex-the-muscles sort of thing.
Saaaam. SAAAAAAM. Plaaaaay with meeeeee.
