your fave is problematic: karl marx
  • class shamed the bourgeoisie just for owning property
  • used the term “alienation” as negative term which is terrestrial privilege
  • got drunk and broke street lamps, which is disrespectful to the public employees who had to fix them 
  • Spelled Carl wrong, just to be an obscurantist and elitist theorist.

It’s Preservation Week!

Here’s a behind the scenes look at how book conservator Katie Wagner repairs damaged covers like on this Spalding Baseball Guide. She passes the wheat paste starch through a horse hair sieve, then uses it to mend the cover using Japanese tissue.

Learn more about the work of Katie and all our conservation staff at our other blog, where we have a series called “the fix.”

There are no scientific miracles in the Qura'an.

You must have never read the Quran to say that. 

“Or (the unbelievers’ state) is like the darkness in a deep sea.  It is covered by waves, above which are waves, above which are clouds.  Darknesses, one above another.  If a man stretches out his hand, he cannot see it….” (Quran 24:40)   Scientists have recently discovered that there are internal waves which occur on density interfaces between layers of different densities

   “We created man from an extract of clay.  Then We made him as a drop in a place of settlement, firmly fixed.  Then We made the drop into an alaqah (leech, suspended thing, and blood clot), then We made the alaqah into a mudghah(chewed substance)…” (Quran 23:12-14)  go to http://www.islamreligion.com/articles/216/ for explanation on this because they have pictures.

Car Made Completely Of LEGO Bricks

However great you think your past LEGO creations were, none of them pale in comparison to this LEGO car. The car pictured above is made from over half a million LEGO bricks, and runs completely on compressed air, meaning no gas necessary! The only downfall of this crazy LEGO creation is that if you crashed it, the labour bills to fix it would be through the freakin roof!

short drabble based on that hilariously atrocious article on nerd reactor. dean/cas, ~800 words, slightly nsfw

“Dean, I found something on the internet,” Cas calls from the dining room.

Dean sets down the butter knife he’s holding, mayonnaise clinging to the blade from where he’s lathered it into their BLT’s.

“You what?” he asks, wiping his hands on his jeans and making his way from the kitchen to where Cas is seated around the corner. There’s a laptop on the table in front of him and Cas’s eyes are fixed squarely on whatever’s on the screen. From the pinched, frustrated look on his face, it can’t be something good. “What did you find, babe?”

Cas’s eyes only flutter momentarily at the pet name before replying. “It’s an article someone has written about the Supernatural book series.”

“Oh no,” Dean groans. “Cas, don’t look at shit like that, man. It’ll just make your head hurt.”

“Charlie sent me the link. Dean,” Cas pins him with a serious glare, “this man is very wrong.”

Working on fixing my street photography pictures so I can maybe one day possibly perhaps put them on a Tumblr blog.

I don't really like myself at this point. I'm getting behind, my friends are kinda toxic, I feel numb and empty. I haven't consistently worked out in just over a month and I've been eating crappy in an attempt to save money (free food). I don't know how to fix it but I hate feeling this way.

(Hug) Hey anon. Here is what I do when I feel overwhelmed. 

  • Breathe - Seriously, take some deep breaths. In an out - will yourself to find calm. This will both make you feel better and prepare you to take your next steps. 
  • Assess - Take an objective review of where you are and what needs work. Write it down, try to be objective and focus on the facts.  Sometimes I find it isn’t as bad as I think. Even if it is, at least I have a real list to start a plan. 
  • Plan - Brainstorm different solutions to your issue. Once you have a good list, ask yourself “What is one thing I can do to help make this issue better?” You can either do the easiest thing (so you get a win) or the most important thing (so you can drive improvements.) Both have merit. 
  • Do - Take the first step toward implementing your plan. Sometimes taking this step makes me feel so much better. 
  • Check - Periodically check on your progress and adjust as needed. 

Let me give you a simplified example, from your note above. This is just example, since I don’t know the details of your situation. 

Problem: I can’t afford healthy food. 

Breathe - Done. I am calm and ready to fix this.

Assess - I am on a fixed budget of X. That barley covers my expenses. I can get free food from my work, though it isn’t the healthiest. While I could probably go on like this, it makes me feel sick and is holding me back from my fitness goals. 

Plan: I have a couple of options: 

  1. Look into the local food bank. It isn’t ideal but this is why they are there. Perhaps I could volunteer to help give back.
  2. Get a part time job. 15 hours a week would be enough to help me eat healthy. It will be hard with my course load but can be done. 
  3.  Stop spending $$ on XYZ. I like it but eating healthy is more important to me. 
  4. Ask my parents for help. I hate to do it, but may need to. 

Do: I am going to 3 and 2 for now and see if I can make it work. I will limit my spending on XYZ to $15 week and will start applying for jobs tonight. 

Check : 2 weeks later I will take a look at how things have changed and adjust as needed. 

This may or may not work for you, but I find using the analytically part of my brain to troubleshoot a problem helps me get out of the emotional overload I feel when I am overwhelmed. 

Good luck anon. 

P.S. Life is too short for toxic friends. (Hugs) 


Arguably the best thing George W. Bush ever did for his party was to keep quiet in the years following his presidency. Winning elections in a political environment shaped by Bush’s legacy – a bloody and unpopular conflict in Iraq and a cratering economy – was difficult enough. The last thing Republicans needed was W. out in the public eye smirking and drawling about staying the course. So he exiled himself to the ranch in Crawford and took up painting. But Bush’s political hermit act couldn’t last forever.

George W. Bush is back, and he’s concerned that the foreign policy catastrophes he helped create aren’t being fixed

Imagine Kyungsoo giving all SM trainees little nicknames in order to make them feel more accepted in to the company. Unfortunately the nicknames often have somewhat unsettling implications and it tends to scare off the weaker willed trainees.

“What? ‘Unexpected Demise’ left?” Kyungsoo questions, surprised. “But he was doing so well? We’d almost fixed his weird stuttering!” Pause “Well I guess he also stopped talking completely.. But we were making progress!”

That was the 6th trainee who quit because of Soo this month.
