God how amazing would it be if Elementary has one scene where Holmes and Watson are walking up the steps outside the corporate office of some company called Reichenbach Industries and Sherlock trips and falls on his face then picks himself up and goes “it’s okay I’m fine”
Can someone get me the number of whoever is showrunner for Elementary right now please
Space mermaids? As in: alien mermaids that live in the vacuum of space and swim between the stars? A setting that uses the analogy of deep space as the open ocean but keeps all the sea monsters? DO WANT!!
Luring astronauts into black holes with a song that carries across the void where no one can hear you scream
My name is Scott and I’m currently doing research on bisexual stereotypes for a class at Washington State University. I would greatly appreciate if you would take a few minutes to complete a survey. This survey is specifically geared toward bisexuals and other polysexual orientations, however, I would still appreciate data from monosexual gay and straight people. Link is below.
if boromir lived and had gone to helm's deep and onward with aragorn et al, how awesome would it have been, scale of one to ten.
Haha, “on a scale of one to ten.” I don’t recognize this scale when it comes to Boromir at Helm’s Deep. Try like idk a major pentatonic scale and on that scale, Boromir at Helm’s Deep would basically be a ten minute long Metallica scream.
By then Aragorn and Boromir would have been so tight. Aragorn’s chill but deeply appreciative acceptance of Boromir’s declaration of fealty would have only solidified Boromir’s massive respect for him and Aragorn would place so much value on Boromir’s court savvy, his hard-won loyalty, his leadership qualities and his bravery and you know, the way he slid across the slate and almost tumbled over the cliff himself, grabbing Aragorn’s arm at the last second and saving him from falling in that river, pulling him up with dat Boromir side grin. Let the tower guard take up the call, let the bass drop: the lords of Gondor have returned.
Boromir would be diplomatically repairing that relationship with Rohan. Boromir would be psyching up the troops on the wall with his incredibly motivating qualities of casual bro charm and steely experience in battle. Boromir would be quietly chatting with Eowyn by the hearth after everyone else falls asleep because they both understand what it means to be shackled to a role by tradition, to be helpless to protect your family as much as you want to, to put country and duty before your own needs. Boromir blastin full big bro super saiyan on Wormtongue.
PS CAN WE ALL IMAGINE BOROMIR’S FACE AT THE WEDDING OF HIS KID BROTHER TO THIS BADASS ROHAN WARRIOR AND ALL AROUND WONDERFUL PERSON WHO ALSO HAPPENS TO BE A GRADE A BABE. CAN YOU IMAGINE BOROMIR’S FACE. CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW POIGNANT AND SURPRISINGLY SENSITIVE HIS TOAST SPEECH WOULD BE. CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW SLOPPY HAPPY DRUNK BOROMIR WOULD GET AT THE RECEPTION, HOW MUCH HE WOULD LOVE EVERYONE IN THIS BAR. BECAUSE I CAN.
1. Single moms are the problem. Only 9 percent of low-income, urban moms have been single throughout their child’s first five years. Thirty-five percent were married to, or in a relationship with, the child’s father for that entire time.
2. Absent dads are the problem. Sixty percent of low-income dads see at least one of their children daily. Another 16 percent see their children weekly.
3. Black dads are the problem. Among men who don’t live with their children, black fathers are more likely than white or Hispanic dads to have a daily presence in their kids’ lives.
4. Poor people are lazy. In 2004, there was at least one adult with a job in 60 percent of families on food stamps that had both kids and a nondisabled, working-age adult.
5. If you’re not officially poor, you’re doing okay. The federal poverty line for a family of two parents and two children in 2012 was $23,283. Basic needs cost at least twice that in 615 of America’s cities and regions.
6. Go to college, get out of poverty. In 2012, about 1.1 million people who made less than $25,000 a year, worked full time, and were heads of household had a bachelor’s degree.
7. We’re winning the war on poverty. The number of households with children living on less than $2 a day per person has grown 160 percent since 1996, to 1.65 million families in 2011.
8. The days of old ladies eating cat food are over. The share of elderly single women living in extreme poverty jumped 31 percent from 2011 to 2012.
9. The homeless are drunk street people. One in 45 kids in the United States experiences homelessness each year. In New York City alone, 22,000 children are homeless.
10. Handouts are bankrupting us. In 2012, total welfare funding was 0.47 percent of the federal budget.
If you’re a college student with a mental illness, bookmark this. It’s essential that you keep this in case there is ever a conflict with your mental health on campus.
The legalities of colleges and universities (in the US that is, I can’t speak for other countries) differ from the everyday legalities of having a mental illness. Most colleges don’t inform their students of their rights as being mentally ill, so it’s essential that you stay up to date on them yourselves (this was published in 2008, but the most recent version of the brochure).
Ginny describes her method for spinning a gradient or ombré yarn from variegated spinning fibre here. It’s an easy way to manage and maintain a smooth transition between colours and can be used for making either 3-ply (chain-plied) or 2-ply yarns. Felicia’s charming January 2014 Fibre Club colour, Night Owl on BFL+Silk, was too sweet…
I did a blog post on how I spun the gradient yarn for my Frisson shawl project! Ch-ch-ch-check it out.

The only Hebrew version of the perennially popular Arthurian legends was written in northern Italy in 1279. […] The 13th-century Italian Jewish translator’s literary methods are as fascinating as are the Arthurian stories in Hebrew dress. The scribe not only translates from Italian, [..] he also changed and Judaized the story. The scribe’s manner of Judaization is evident at the outset of the romance; the apology itself is filled with terms from a familiar Jewish world.
Instrumental to the Judaization of the Arthurian romance are the scribe’s choice of plot (the seduction of Igerne by the king, with its parallels to the David-Bath-Sheba story), additions and omissions, use of language, and treatment of certain passages to stress Jewish ideas. For instance, the feast at which Uther meets Igerne is described in the Old French sources as a Christmas feast. In the Hebrew version, the statement “Then the king made a great feast for all the people and all the princes” (based on Esth. 2:18) conveys the aura of a Purim feast.
Another example of such transference of concepts occurs when the translator takes the talmudic word tamḥui (“a charity bowl from which food was distributed to the needy”), with its uniquely Jewish associations, to describe the grail, an overtly Christian symbol. The constant use of well-known biblical phrases reminds the reader of religious literature and produces the effect of biblical scenes in the midst of the Arthurian narrative. In this fashion, then, the text and the language interact in polyphonic fashion.
“Yarn. Buy yarn. I hear muggles say it all the time "But she has so much yarn. I’ll get her something else." Hear me now. Your knitter has a lot of yarn because she LIKES yarn.”—- The Yarn Harlot, 2006 (via knitmecrazy)
