I forgot to tell my most favorite story about Pokemon Go around here!!!

So poke is a type of dish here, it’s cubed up raw fish served with sauce and seasonings, it’s pronounced the same as the “poke” in “pokemon” (Hawaiian and Japanese have the same consonant /vowel pronunciations)

Anyway there’s a restaurant over here that is called “Poke Stop” where they exclusively sell this dish.

Poke Stop restaurant became a Poke Stop on Pokemon Go :3

So. Isn’t it a little strange how Janine purposefully aimed to make John jealous that morning in 221b and through her articles in the paper? (John is actually mentioned in those articles). Why would Janine try to hurt John? Because she’s Sherlock’s friend and knows what’s really bothering him so she takes it upon herself to lash out? What if it’s more selfish than that? Maybe Janine wants to hurt John because he took Mary from her. A post by @deducingbbcsherlock made me think his over, how the idea of a pining Janine isn’t so outlandish. Sherlock’s story could very well mirror that of Mary and Janine, only we don’t know it yet. Janine was asked to be chief bridesmaid and it hurt her much like it hurt Sherlock to be best man. That’s why she’s quick to try to find a sexual partner all day - a rebound for her bruised heart. She assumes Sherlock might be just like her, so even though she knows Sherlock is in love with John (everybody at the wedding knew that) she tries to be his rebound, too. Janine knows they’ll never get married, she knows what kind of man he is. She was hoping for a little action, possibly to distract her from the pain she felt losing someone she loves. Janine stayed at Baker St a lot, alone even - maybe she was avoiding her home? In front of John she tells Sherlock that she’s the only one who knows what he’s like, presumably because she thinks they are similar. Something binds the two of them that only she knows.

And here’s the kicker:

Sherlock thinks he got into CAM tower because of love, because of human error. But it was actually Mary who got into CAM tower because of love, because of Janine’s human error.

A $2 paper strip can diagnose hundreds of diseases

We all know that DNA testing is considered as a typical feature found in hospital laboratories. It is a way of assisting doctors to identify different kinds of diseases on their patients. The said industry consist of setting up samples, increasing nucleic acid sequences, and even identifying the existence of specific sequences of DNA. That is why it also needs well-trained staffs, specialized equipments, and all of them take painstaking but accurate work.

Why be a Whovian?

Its a faith system.

Whovian, a term describing Doctor Who fanatics. Doctor Who is a long term show, produced and shot out of England.

Somewhere above all our heads, in the clouds, above our beds (likely in London), lives a man in a big blue box; traveling through space and time, in a police phone box.

Since the shows revival in 2005 with Christopher Eccleston playing the 9th Doctor through 2013 with  Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor, the show has continued to gain a mass following amongst younger viewers throughout the United Kingdom and United States.

Doctor Who is now like a religion to fans, even going as far to meet identical social, cultural and psychological needs of the real world into the show:love,myth,death, loss, community, art; minus the dangers of fans physically traveling through time and space in the TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimension In Space…also known as the big blue box/police box). The show has been known for heavy plot turns as well as emotional darts to the viewers hearts, but what is not seen is why viewers care so much for this “Doctor” with an ever-changing face (he has an ability to regenerate, which consequently gives him a new body and new personality) and his binary vascular system.

As a Whovian myself I can express that as you watch the Doctor through his journeys with companions ; the hardships of losing friends and defeating enemies around the universe…its like watching God, in a way. The power and confidence, determination and sadness, anger and loss; they all drive him to despite his anger, he helps to save everyone and everything lives.

He has fought amongst his people, the Time Lords, in a great Time Battle, against the fierce enemies, Daleks, Cybermen, Sontarans, and eventually…Time Lords. The Doctor single handled defeated the armies, leaving himself, alone in time…and space. But as any old, lonely man does, he finds friends with a still growing species; homo sapiens.

“I’ve got two hearts, and their beating for you” - Doctor Who Valentines Day Card

From the first Doctor, played by William Hartnell, through Matt Smith, the Doctor always has  companions. Occasionally he falls in love, only to meet a tragic end; Rose Tyler, River Song. Some times his friends are ripped from away from him; Donna Noble, Amy Pond, Rory Pond. His life much mirrors our own often tragic fate. Thats why it is so easy to love this charming, crazy, childish, brave, genius of a man. He is so many things, that it inspires fans to live one tenth of the life he has lived.

Doctor Who has more to offer all types of people than Star Trek does to any one but intense science fiction fans. You do not need to love science to watch this show, you just need a heart. Because hands down, you walk up to any Whovian and say “I don’t want to go” they will shed tears from those words. That is the impact this 50 year old show out of England, has had on fans. And with introduction of head writer/ executive producer Steve Moffat in the 5th series, the show took off. Moffat started writing underneath, at the time, head writer/ executive producer, Russell T. Davies. Moffat’s first episode was “Blink”, known for its introduction of the Weeping Angels; a antagonist to the Doctor. Angels feed off of potential energy people generate, say all you could have done in 30 years, they eat that. They are the only creature known to kill you kindly by sending you to live out the rest of your life in the past, thus feasting on your potential days. The catch to getting away from an Angel is to not blink. “Do not blink! Whatever you do, don’t blink!”- David Tennant/ The Doctor. The angels DNA is made to freeze when another life form stares at them, once you look away, or blink the angels are free from this spell and will touch you and send you back in time.

The point of all of this is seen in the die hard fans who can freely geek out and discuss time travel with their friends. The show not only brings people together this way, but also teaches fans a more positive side to living. Its essentially Sesame Street for young adults and adults; its reminds people to enjoy life and focus on the good, even when so much around you is bad. Most importantly it reminds us to look at people for who they are not the boxes we put them in. In an episode from the 7th series, the Doctor borrows a horse from a man in the old west, says the horse is named “Joshua. Its from the Bible, it means the deliver”. The Doctor, known to talk with animals, babies and aliens, says “No its not, his name is Susan, and he wants you to respect his life choices” -Matt Smith/ The Doctor. (Season 7, Episode; “A Town Called Mercy”)

Whovians know everything about this show because they love the addictive air of the show. For example, the TARDIS is a police box because when the Doctor traveled to the 1963 the chameleon circuit or camouflage unit broke, leaving the TARIDS as a Police Phone Box.He is a genius amongst the stars, and for much of his life, well known amongst them to.  His bewildering kindness towards those that do not deserve such a gift, is Godly.

Being a Whovian is really just a faith system in the end. We all have faith like little kids believing in Santa, that one day, if we are good, smart and wholesome, then one day, on the train to work, or in the grocery store, or flying car, that one day, we will hear that “Vworrrp Vworrrrp", and he will take us away with him on magical adventures. In the end, all we have is a faith system.  

A New Scoop || Open

Everything changed the minute that the article in the paper was published and her face was put on display for the world to see who she was. No longer a lost princess and no longer really Roza, it seemed like everyone was intently interested with her and that was because they were…well, very specific people were. She had to admit that she was a good story, somewhat like a fairytale, thousands of lonely girls probably secretly dreamed they were princesses and here she actually was one. She was sure many were jealous but remarkably most seemed really happy for her or happy for the story. 

She wore a fairly wide brimmed hat and sunglasses but that didn’t stop some reporters from recognizing her. They descended upon her like…well, some sort of predatory animal hunting party, cameras flashing and questions flying, “Princess Rampion, can I ask a few questions?” said one, “princess rampion, where will you be attending school this coming year?” said another, “princess Rampion, love the dress, tell me, who are you wearing?” It was overwhelming. 

She backed up away from them and right into someone who had just come out of the cafe she was in front of. She turned to face them, camera bulbs still flashing “Oh…um…I’m sorry…” she said with a grimace, “I’ll try to make sure the pictures don’t get published,” she mumbled, pulling the brim of her hat over her face a little more. 

I needed to get a thing about Galileo to cite and I found a website that summed up his primary/secondary qualities pretty good and went to check out the stuff it cited (since it’s nicer to cite a paper than some guy’s website), and found a neat article published by a postdoc at the Paris-Sorbonne summing up Galileo’s beliefs in this area so he could nitpick some translation or another. For some reason you had to drop the author a message to download the PDF (it’s all automated so I figured he’d never look at it). I told him I was just writing a paper and stumbled across this and now this guy wants to see my paper

Bro, I’m taking a summer course in philosophy 101 at the community college. You don’t want to see my homework. Go away.

The Mythril Eye, daily life column.

Hello faithful readers! Today I bring you another insightful artcile about the mystery that surrounds the home of the Agents.

A week ago, there was hustle and bustle in the upstairs adventurer’s guild as a male aura summoned people together to go out on a treasure hunting mission. 

There was quite the crowd, and all parties seemed excited to go. Although many raised the question to the male if he had plans to back stab them; I was taken back by such accusations and it begs the question if the Agents have had such problems with betrayal in the past. Further investigation of this idea will be done. 

Although do to my agreement with a certain Crooked Tarot, I could not personally attend this adventure but by the sounds of those whom had returned it was quite the experience with even greater rewards. 

While this has been a short article, I hope it leaves you wanting to take another bite out of the Astral Agency, I know I do. 

Your truly, B.T

Germany: University's course claims Israel harvests Palestinian organs

Via Jerusalem Post (h/t glykosymoritis)

An academic seminar at a German university claims Israel’s military harvests organs from Palestinians and the Jewish state is responsible for a genocide.

“Our sons were robbed of their organs,” was the title of a part of the seminar’s course material, Rebecca Seidler, an academic who blew the whistle on the anti-Israel material, told the weekly German-Jewish newspaper Jüdische Allgemeine Zeitung in an article published Thursday.

The paper reported that the University of Applied Sciences and Arts (HAWK) offers a course on “The Social Situation of Youths in Palestine,” which contains the allegedly anti-Semitic material.

After reviewing the content of the course, Seidler, who was slated to conduct the seminar, complained to the university’s management.

The dean of the faculty of Social Work and Health, Christa Paulini, dismissed Seidler’s criticism in a telephone conversation as being overly sensitive.

The Joker essay is at 1000 words so far and that’s WITHOUT yet getting to the meat of the post. I’m working on organizing the essay so that I don’t end up exploring every single instance of creators coding the Joker as queer in order to frame him as frightful yet funny.  Already, with my outlining, this looks like it’ll be about 3-4  thousand words.

Friends, I had to have two wisdom teeth extracted unexpectedly today and I’m reaching out again for some help. My insurance covered most of my procedure but I still had to pay $70 for the anti nausea medication after anesthesia. I’ll have to pay it again when I get the other two removed at a later date. My credit debt and phone bills are piling up and there’s really not much I can do about it at the moment other than continue trying, and continue looking for work. I need about $300 to cover myself in bills right now, to get ahead of my phone and credit card minimums. If you can help, my paypal is Anything helps. I’m no great artist so I can’t offer drawings or anything like that in return, but I do have two English degrees. Need a paper or article copy edited? I’m your gal. Need help framing a college essay? You got it.

Again, my paypal is Anything helps, anything is so appreciated.

Freddie caught Frederick and Winnie cheating on veganism.

When Alfie’s article for the school paper about misuse of school funds happened to overlap with Freddie’s investigation into a bribery of local officials, they spent most of their afternoons out of the house together. After Frederick took Winnie to a psychiatry convention downtown, they picked up a real cheesecake and ate it at the kitchen table.

They only made it through half of it when Alfie came busting through the front door, mumbling to himself about trespassing and the board of education before running up the stairs without so much as a hello.

Freddie rolled her eyes when she shut the door behind her, “If he wasn’t just like me, I’d be annoyed with him.”

Frederick’s plan of just standing in front of the cheesecake wasn’t as effective as he had hoped it would be when Freddie walked over to give him a kiss before asking Winnie how the convention was.

Winnie just subtly put her fork back on her plate, “Uh, it was cool? Very informative.”

“So boring?” She asked, picking up the fork before taking a bite out of the cheesecake. Winnie shot a look to Frederick, who just shrugged back and mouthed, ‘maybe she won’t notice.’

It was wishful thinking, really,  because Freddie promptly spit the cake out as soon as it touched her tongue and looked at both of them with a look of complete disgust. “What the fuck, Frederick?”

“That language isn’t-“

“What the fuck is this doing in my house?” She asked. “And – and you can’t even digest any of this.”

“Well, in moderation, I-“

“And you?” Freddie said turning to Winnie because oh no, she was not getting away scot-free. “You’re throwing away fifteen years of veganism for – for cheesecake?”

“But Mom,” Winnie sighed. “I didn’t know it wasn’t vegan.”

Frederick shot her a look that made it believable that he could be the Chesapeake Ripper.

Winnie frowned, “I – I can’t believe I – I ate that.”


“Frederick,” Freddie cut off with a glare. “What do you have to say for yourself?”

“I – I had no intention of upsetting you.”

“Oh no, just to lie to me.”

“I wasn’t lying, I was just – just trying to avoid this,” He told her. “I love you, Fred, but I – I still crave things from when I wasn’t a vegan.”

“So you’re weak?”

“If it means you’re not angry with me, sure.”  

“Hm, my mother was right about you than,” She said with a huff, turning on her heels and walking out of the room. She called over her shoulder, “brush your teeth before you even think about kissing me.” 

Frederick turned his glare to Winnie. She just shrugged back before picking her fork back up, “What? No reason we should both be in trouble.”

when i was up north i met one of my aunts, who is a chemist, for the first time and everybody warned me that she wouldn’t stop talking to me about chemistry and physics and my studies and stuff and they were right. so at first i thought she was actually cool and interesting and passionate about her field but then she made me give her my email address and told me to keep in touch and that she would send me articles and papers that she thought were interesting. i expected and hoped that it was an empty gesture. but i just got home and checked my email and every single day from when we met until today she’s sent me an article about chemistry so now i’m morally obligated to reply please help
