flawless queen natalie dormer shutting down casual “fake geek girl” crap
Shut them down and strut on
she’s acting all margaery talking about “you see, i’ll get you back”
This fabulous woman is going to be at my comic con in April. I am so excited even though I have doubts that I’ll be able to do more than glimpse her, but even that is enough.

This might be the best thing I’ve ever heard.

are you stupid thats a unicorn
oh what I have to draw this
I love this unicorn
You’re all wrong. That is a kelpie, not a unicorn. Resist the temptation to climb upon its back, or it will drown you.
History Professor when going over syllabus: “Now, on the essay question you’ll get with each test, I don’t want anything detailed. Just write a simple outline.”
Remark on essay question from the first test: “Next time, use more detail.”
SO WHICH IS IT?
Am I Anna or Elsa? Are you Elsa or Anna? Who is the trickster and who utilizes brute force? Hm… I think that answers it. You’re Eloki and I’m Thoranna. I’m not clever enough to be a trickster. hahah

“It’s no secret that miscegenation (interracial marriage) was kind of a big deal in the United States until very recently — as in, it was totally illegal for a non-white person to marry a white person until 1967. That’s why it’s so shocking to learn that, just one year after that supreme court decision the Star Trek episode “Plato’s Stepchildren” featured the first ever interracial kiss on scripted TV in the US. It was so controversial, even on the set, that they had to shoot it twice — once where William Shatner (Kirk) and Nichelle Nichols (Uhura) kissed, and one where they didn’t. But Shatner intentionally ruined the shot where they didn’t kiss, forcing the studio to use the other one.”

you are so gosh dang pretty!!!! and i assume the top one is morange i am loving it a lot
:: squeals :: Thank you!
Yes! Morange is the orange-y one up top. At first, I wasn’t sure about the colour because when I swatched it on the back of my hand it was like holy-moley orange, and I actually prefer cool colours. However, I put a pink-ish red lipliner under it, and it just… wow… I’m really diggin’ it a lot. hahah
As far as “Up the Amp” goes, I still love it, but the ashy tones in it don’t work quite as well with my colouring. I think someone with darker skin than mine would rock it better with the colour as it is. I want to raid my lip stuff and see if I have something fuschia (or just experiment with the other pinks/reds mixed into it) because I think it’ll make it really nice for my colouring. Apparently, it’s the base lipstick they use on Felicity Smoak in Arrow, and I want to replicate the fun lip colours they use on her so badly. You can’t even imagine. XD
There will be much experimenting with these lip colours. I love them both so much. ^o_o^
On Valentine’s Day, my boyfriend gifted two new lipsticks to me: “morange” and “up the amp.” I adore them both, and while the pictures here don’t involve any real experimenting beyond wanting to see their basic colours on me, I intend to experiment with them by mixing them with various other lip liners and lipsticks that I own. I adore these.
Government, Monty Python Style

Teriffic skit from Monty Python!
What is this from???
monty python and the holy grail.
Before I get into it, just know the pictures just serve as visual representations, not actual pictures
Okay so anyway, evidence for this theory is the following:
THE FACT THAT HUMANS ARE SO HAIRLESS:
Only two kind of habitats give rise to hairless animals, an aquatic one and a one below the ground (a naked mole rat for example)
.The suggestion that humans have become hairless to prevent overheating has been rendered false because hair can act like a defense against the sun.
This is why camels retain their fur even in the hot dessert environment.
OUR FAT CELLS
We have ten times the number of fat cells as expected in an animal our size. Only two types of animals have large fat cells: hibernating and aquatic ones.
In hibernating it’s seasonal fat, but in aquatic it’s all year round. It’s unreasonable to think that we evolved this feature in land because large fat pockets would have just slowed us down.
Primate babies are always born slender, but human babies start to develop fat even before birth.
WALKING ON TWO LEGS
So we’re the only mammals that have developed bipedalism. This is a surprise, because walking on 2 legs vs. walking on 4 legs is very disadvantageous. It’s slower, unstable, our organs are vulnerable to damage.
One theory is that if our habitat was flooded, we’d have to walk on two legs to keep our heads above the water.
The only animal who has ever evolved a pelvis like ours, the swamp ape, used this method.
We have conscious control over our breathing. Ever other land animal doesn’t. Mammals like dolphins and seals also conscious control because it tells them how deep they are going to dive and they can estimate how much air they need to inhale.
Our body is so wasteful of salt and water. Think of tears and our way of sweating. Other land mammals don’t have this. Water mammals do however.
Okay anyway I hope you learned something.
