Just stepped on a pair of scissors in my lovely recently-painted-eggplant-purple sewing room. Was only moments before admiring how sharp they were as I used them to cut cardboard to line my shelves.

(Literally) bloody hell.

Thank goodness I already have shoe blisters on my heels…

riennynn Zitronenmelisse is the German name, I’m not sure that the translation is right, I didn’t check! It’s a herb, lots of Swiss people seem to have them in their garden! It looks like peppermint and smells like citrus!

Ohhh I see! Thank you for clarifying :)

*re-reads sex chapter of fanfiction over breakfast cereal like it’s the morning paper*

Critiquing technique and the author’s use (or lack of) lube and realism of refractory period.

Or gag reflex.

Seriously. Don’t describe someone’s 8+ inch endowment and then say that their partner swallowed them completely, nose to pubes, with little to no effort.

Bisexuality: Setting the Records “Straight” [x]

My Bisexuality has no bearing on my ability to commit to someone. All that means is that the potential pool of applicants is a bit bigger.”

AmoeBAND became a 2012 IDEA Award Finalist by innovating every possible aspect of the plaster (band aid).

The design revisions were:  

- Strategic cut-outs shape to fit fingers in such a way that it is easy to bend them and not disrupt the bandage.

- An intelligent dressing material allows you to regularly check wounds from the outside, without upsetting the healing process.“According to research, the when an infection of a wound is detected, the pH value is between 6.5 and 8.5. AmoeBAND’s indicator cross turns purple, alerting the user needs to change it immediately.

- Since the bandage material used exudes a leather-like feel, availability in different skin-tones helps it blend in, without overly highlighting the injury.

- The packaging has been redesigned to a matchbox style and includes Braille instructions.

Hat tip to designers Tay Pek-Khai, Hsu Hao-Ming, Tsai Cheng-Yu, Chen Kuei-Yuan, Chen Yi-Ting, Lai Jen-Hao, Ho Chia-Ying, Chen Ying-shan, Weng Yu-Ching, and Chung Kuo-Ting

it’s always funny when people improve on something and you look at the innovations and it’s like so fucking obvious what needed to be changed, but yet no one seemingly thought of it until then, yourself included

Beats taking scissors to a sterile bandaid by a long shot!

Morning dressing ceremony

Requested by lesliaisonsdemarieantoinette

So much of what we consider private life was public - something I never considered before my medieval studies professor pointed it out freshman year of undergrad. Things we take for granted like waking up alone and getting dressed were highly ceremonial events in palaces, or accompanied by the other members of one’s household in other levels of society. Privacy is truly a modern concept.

is that you hobby lobby

Am I the only one that’s a just a tiny bit pissed off that this is still an issue?

The Original Series wasn’t even in the general VICINITY of fucking around yo

OKAY, so you know I care about reboot and all, despite its problems, because that shit got me into Star Trek in the first place. But you wanna know its major problem? It’s not good science fiction. It’s an action movie in space. GOOD science fiction is the original fucking series, right here.

They took a social issue that was HIGHLY TABOO and made a show about it because you can get away with that kind of thing by putting it on another planet and just having the Enterprise point the bullshit out. It’s 2014 and this argument is sadly still relevant. And do you know why it’s still relevant? Because the average person isn’t well-educated in social issues. They’re well-educated in summer blockbusters. We need more science fiction that broadens the mind and just doesn’t pit good vs. evil. Star Wars is where you go for great action adventure, good vs. evil. Star Trek was wholly separate because it was concerned with the human condition and the state of the future.

In short, I will roundhouse kick anyone in the face that calls the original series a silly 60s camp show with no entertainment value. It made me contemplate my very existence and it did so on the budget of a bologna sandwich.


Fiction is a clever thing, because when you’re enjoying something fictional, whether it’s a book or a TV show or a movie or a video game, you don’t have your defenses up in the way you will do when someone IRL tries to tell you about social issues. When you hear a message about social issues through fiction, it’s vastly more likely to make it past those barriers you’d otherwise be putting up and to make a difference to you.

This could be a really good thing, wherein fiction becomes a means by which to easily get positive and constructive messages across to people, but more often it’s instead just full of nasty, toxic shit like how women are prizes and black people are criminals and bisexuality isn’t real and trans people are freaks. That’s the shit that’s getting through those barriers at the moment, and it’s fucking awful.

Fuck you if you don’t think entertainment or fiction matter.

you want to talk about reality, you often have to go to sci-fi and fantasy to get it
