i made a new skyrim character whose main goal in life is to steal all of the cheese in skyrim for herself
she hasn’t gotten very far yet but she’s off to a good start
three cities worth of cheese… i’d call that progress
"There was a FISH…in the PERCOLATOR…and it came BACK TO ME!"
Lew Zealand—you know, that Muppet who throws boomerang fish—cast as Pete Martell from the television series Twin Peaks.
You know what, come to think of it, Jack Nance was sort of Muppet-y already…

Anonymous said: Does it even matter what people are saying about dashcon? Really though, who cares?
One member of upper management had their number leaked and started receiving harassing calls and death threats at all hours of the night. That’s why it matters. That’s why I care.
I think Dashcon was a huge and utter disaster— but nothing, I repeat, NOTHING, warrants shitty behavior like that. Tumblr, get your shit together and stop harassing people. Just stop. This is uncalled for. This is a human being that you are scarring for life. I think the geekiary post is enough scarring for one lifetime, let’s not add death threats at 2am to the list.
Shakespearean insults, with cats.
7 more here.
I did not realize how very perfect cats were at delivering Shakespeare’s insults until now.
I want to get people into Welcome to Night Vale, but it’s so hard to sell like “hey if you like gay radio show hosts and totalitarian goverents and clouds that drop dead animals on small desert towns then boy do I have a show for you”
So here’s some pics of my Man in the Tan Jacket cosplay from Colossal con. Its still sort of a WIP, I need to add the flies all over the jacket still and fix some other small things.
Oh and I had speakers in the suit case so it had the flies buzzing inside it. Creeped some people out. :D
The pin on my lapel says ‘nightvale fly salesman’
In a simple experiment, researchers at the University of Chicago sought to find out whether a rat would release a fellow rat from an unpleasantly restrictive cage if it could. The answer was yes.
The free rat, occasionally hearing distress calls from its compatriot, learned to open the cage and did so with greater efficiency over time. It would release the other animal even if there wasn’t the payoff of a reunion with it. Astonishingly, if given access to a small hoard of chocolate chips, the free rat would usually save at least one treat for the captive — which is a lot to expect of a rat.
The researchers came to the unavoidable conclusion that what they were seeing was empathy — and apparently selfless behavior driven by that mental state.
this just in: rats are more humane than humans
This is beautiful.
Not something for the faint at heart, but a reality nevertheless: a book bound in human skin.
True story: I have seen many objects made from human skin. The Mütter Museum in Philadelphia PA is AWESOME and also kind of scary
