Not that I have *a* favorite show…
One of the BEST ad campaigns about representation I have seen.
Everyone has a backbone. Use yours.

I haven’t had a birthday party in several years, mostly because I can’t be bothered to organize one. As I get older, it feels increasingly weird to ask my friends to make a big deal over the fact that I’ve simply managed to avoid dying for another 365 days, especially since I’m not all that comfortable making myself the center of attention.
When I was a kid, my birthday parties were generally pretty small, too. My family didn’t have a whole lot of extra money for big celebrations, and it usually fell during April school vacation when a lot of my friends were away.
The most memorable exception was in second grade. There were two other girls in my class who had the same birthday, and it happened to be on a school day that year. Our moms went all out, providing homemade cupcakes and ice cream and soda. I can’t imagine how stressful it must have been for the adults to try herding 20-odd eight-year-olds hopped up on all that sugar, but we thought it was great.
Hillary, Kristen, happy belated birthday. I hope you’re doing well.
I really need more post-series fanfic in which these two team up and take over the world. And maybe recruit Maria Lu as their part-time sidekick when she’s not too busy with college. Little sisters rock.
The only thing better than this is that it was tagged with this:
#i’ll be in my bunk
I think I ought to feel badly for reblogging this, but I can’t. I just… guh.
Men of LBD, congratulations on your faces.
(Just well done in general.)
One of the best fanvids I’ve ever seen.
And when she says ‘one of the best […] EVER’ (emphasis mine), lemme tell ya: it’s really, really true.
So many things I love all in one place! And beautifully done, to boot.
The World’s Quietest Room
Scientists at Minneapolis’ Orfield Labs created their own soundless room, an anechoic chamber. Their studies have found that when putting subjects within the chamber, they begin to hallucinate within 30 minutes.
With an average quiet room having a sound level of 30 decibels, the anechoic chamber’s sound level is -9 decibels. The ceiling, floor, and walls of the chamber absorb sound rather than have it bounce off as normal objects do. The chamber is so quiet that the subjects can even hear their own organs functioning.
Although extremely interesting, the experience is rather unpleasant. Not one subject has spent more than 45 minutes in the chamber alone. Leaving a person to only their thoughts, the chamber could drive them insane.
I want to be here. I want to see the deeper parts of my thoughts, and maybe figure some things out.
the room makes you literally go insane after an extended period of time
its not serene its fucking horrifying did you even read the post
“can even hear their own organs functioning”
aw hell no
creepy as fuck I wanna hear my organs hahaha
Oh, Rassilon, they’ve created a Zero Room.
“If I weren’t acting I’d hopefully be doing something involving time travel. Maybe I’d be a time cop. Well, I guess that’s law-enforcement. So I guess I’d be doing time-travel-law-enforcement. Or perhaps more likely I’d be doing something dreadfully academic. My parents met while both in graduate school working on their PhDs and then my mom went on to get a law degree and my father went on to get a graduate English degree, so I kind of have school in my blood. I think I might be working in the field of ethnic studies trying to shed light on how we think of race and ethnicity in this country. Although I think time-travel-law-enforcement would be more fun.”
Aaand now my brain is trying to figure out how one might cosplay a time-travel-law-enforcement-Darcy mashup…
There would definitely have to be a bow tie. Bow ties are cool. ;)
You can be body-positive and still have preferences.
You can be a feminist and still love men.
You can be sex-positive without being interested in casual sex.
People seem to forget that the core principle of all of these is as simple as not being an asshole.
