being scientific

Fandom: Adrien will be a physicist because he said he was good at particle physics that one time!

Me: But… his selfless behavior and desire to help others, as well as enjoyment in doing so (characteristics displayed numerous times throughout the show) is more credible in considering his future than one offhand comment about physics. Where is psychologist Adrien, who uses his own experiences, as well as patient, considerate nature, to help others? Where is pediatrician Adrien, who enjoys helping kids because it allows him to cope with the lack of attention he got as a child, as well as help them because he likes to help people? Where are my selfless older Adriens that are based on more than a single comment about being good at one scientific subject?  

*sigh* I guess I’ll just have to write it myself.

The Lost City of Z tells the incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett, who journeys into the Amazon at the dawn of the 20th century and discovers evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization that may have once inhabited the region. Despite being ridiculed by the scientific establishment who regard indigenous populations as “savages,” the determined Fawcett - supported by his devoted wife, son and aide de camp returns time and again to his beloved jungle in an attempt to prove his case, culminating in his mysterious disappearance in 1925.

Last night I dreamt that I was in a bog, and a beautiful scientist was telling me about insects. At some, point it stopped being scientific and turned into a spectator sport of spider fights. It was really brutal. Those spiders were really going at it. The bog even had tiny screens with instant replays of the most vicious moments.

How you know each personality likes you.

(Source: This is (loosely) based on situations I’ve seen around me. Please don’t take anything personally, this is solely done with the purpose of being fun. Nothing scientific. ;).)  But if you relate to any of this or want to share your own experience please Repost and share it. I’m very interested in hearing more about it.

  • ENFP: ENFP’s will smile even more than normally around you and seem starstruck and even shy when they are near you. They seem to pop up everywhere you go. Warning: Do not confuse this with them just being nice or talkative to you. Sometimes them being overly chilled around you is not a good sign. That may mean that they like you as a friend. They are nice to everyone and like pretty much everyone (as a friend) so think twice before you decide they’re actually flirting. ENFP guys might be a little more forward than the females (societies fault). Conclusion: if an ENFP finds you interesting enough to focus on you doing your thing - you’ve caught their interest. They love someone who can stimulate them and feed up their extroverted intuition. There should be no doubt when you’re interesting them for real. 
  • ESFP: The ESFP will be very quick to figure out they like you and will be quick to make a move and they will know exactly how to turn on their irresistible charms. They will most likely not talk about their feelings to anyone even though they will think about them non-stop. Beware that the ESFP might get bored after a while and may change their mind and see someone else who gets their attention. But if you’re the one they might just be able to focus only on your sexy ass. ;)
  • INFP: The INFP will idealize the crap out of you and have probably talked to their best friends about how wonderful and perfect you are (only very close ones). They might even have imagined whole scenarios where you might or might not have been giving them signs - like looking intensively into their eyes (read: soul). They will probably remember every word you’ve said and studied you to the inner core and will take everything about you and fit them to their own personal world. Let’s say you hate cats but like to read sometimes and the INFP loves cat’s and loves to read. The INFP will throw the cat thing out of the window and imagine you reading all the time.  The INFP will that way come to the conclusion that you fit perfectly together. Look at their Facebook page. They might be posting quotes or stuff that fit perfectly what you were talking about yesterday. Also if you keep getting anonymous poems sent to your phone, you know where they came from.
  • ISFP: The ISFP will probably not make any move. You will need to make a move on them. Most ISFP’s like being chased - at least that is what frequently happens. It’s very hard to see whether they actually like you or not until you’ve chased them for a while. Then they might open them self up. Or not. They might have a great crush on you but still reject you a few times. You never know.

      

  • INFJ: The INFJ will seem to be completely unaware that you exist until a friend (Who has probably figured out that you’re having a crush on the INFJ) talks them into making a awkward move. Beware of adorable bad puns. When you’re alone they will tell you that they’ve liked you long before you noticed them. They were just too awkward to do anything about it. If they’re spiritual it’s very likely that they have prayed a lot to get to know you. Remember that on the inside the INFJ can be very logically thinking. Even though they like you they might hesitate to do anything at all until they’re sure they’re doing the right thing. Relationships are serious business for them and they want to be sure they’re not going to hurt anyone. Breaking up is not something they’re planning on doing. It’s also a good sign if they take time to talk with you and even counsel you or teach you about things that interest them.
  • ISFJ: ISFJ’s are going to be very awkward and shy around you and can barely talk about their crush to anyone. They will at most act like their usual sweet helpful self around you and might offer to do something helpful for you. They might even give you something sweet. But don’t expect them to make a move.
  • ISTJ: The ISTJ will basically find you attractive, choose you and then professionally flirt with you. They will probably do this on Facebook and/or face to face. They will also most likely dress irresistibly. When you’ve been “chosen” by the ISTJ they will not stop until they’ve either gotten what they want or you’ve rejected them. In that case they’re quick to move on to the next target.


  • INTJ: The INTJ will basically notice your existence. That’s a big step of knowing whether a INTJ likes you. They will also listen to you without constantly interrupting you. You feel like they are actually interested in YOU (talking about things that interest you or apply to you.) It’s a plus sign if they take time to explain intellectual concepts to you. Also try to keep your ears open. If they seem to know things you’ve not told told them they might have googled you. If that’s obvious - then that’s a very good sign that they are actually interested in you.


  • ENTJ: Figure out you like them. Kiss you. Figure out they rushed into things and take four weeks to make a rational decision about whether to keep pursuing a relationship or not. Decide that it’s a good decision and invite your confused ass to dinner. Ask you too marry them in 3 months.


  • ESTJ: ESTJ’s are, like ISTJ’s, very direct. If they like you they will probably talk to you a lot and actually show their interest. ESTJ men will most likely be more direct than the women (again, society’s fault). If you’ve read the book “He’s not that into you” - that might fit an ESTJ very well. The women are also most likely direct but not as much as men. But they will show that they like you - flirting and bossing you around a bit. ESTJ’s are very rarely scared to just do it. It either works or it doesn’t. That’s life. ESTJ’s are also often very service oriented and if they have feelings for someone they will often show love through service. “Actions speak louder than words” is a definition that fit the ESTJ very well when it comes to love.


  • ESFJ: ESFJ’s can take a long time to figure their own feelings out. They are great understanding other people’s feelings (Srong extraverted feeling) but it can take them a while to figure their own feelings out. In the meantime they will probably act very motherly/fatherly around you. They will worry a lot about you and become very jealous if you’re hanging with someone of the opposite sex (assuming that you’re heterosexual). After they finally figure out that they like you they will probably panic and be very emotional nervous wrecks around you and finally just talk to you about it. Then you know for sure. Hopefully you’ve not given up on the wait by then.


  • ENFJ: When the ENFJ figures out they like you they will actively seek you out. They will invite you to every event they’ve planned on going to, along with other friends. Like the ESFJ they are better at understanding other peoples feelings than their own (Strong Fe) so it might take a while for them to actually do figure out they’re crushing on you. Like the ESFJ they will most likely panic when they figure it out and might even figure it out too late or after you have moved on with your life and given up. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen.


  • ESTP: There won’t be any doubt that they’re after you. The only thing you have to worry about is whether they’re after ONLY you. ESTP’s are very adventurous and they like looking around. This doesn’t mean that they do this all the time. But before anything serious has started be sure not to take anything too seriously until the ESTP makes it clear it’s ONLY you he/she wants. If you’re the one the ESTP will make that clear to you and do all he/she can to keep you.


  • ENTP:  To an ENTP love is a game. If you catch their interest they are going to go all over you really fast trying to win your heart.They might be cautious at first (until they know the person likes them back) and will make moves that are not that obvious but might win you over. They can be very flamboyant but not as much as the ESTP. Sometimes they might even pass as introverts. But they will not easily give up on a “game” they’ve started. They have to win!  If an ENTP gets what he/she want’s he/she will keep it. 


  • ISTP: If an ISTP is not withholding information about themselves from you it’s a sign they might actually like you - but being as mysterious as they are it’s hard to tell. But it’s a really positive sign f they actually care enough to tell you about their day and life. If they miraculously share ANY of their feelings with you then you can at least be sure that they like you in some way. How serious it is is another matter. Also don’t take it too personally if they don’t seem as interested in you as in the new Cadillac their friend purchased. Even if they forget that they’re on a date and leave you without letting you know to try the car out out (true story).


  • INTP: Similar to the ISTP the sign of an INTP taking the initiative to talk to you is a very positive sign. Especially with deeper, more complex, and probing conversation, he or she likes you and wants to get to know you better. And if he/she seems to be actively seeking you out for these beyond-small-talk conversations, then he or she probably already has a crush on you. If he/she is getting really nervous around you it’s very likely that his/her feelings are getting stronger. INTP’s along with ISTP’s have a hard time handling strong emotions and sometimes don’t know what to do about them. 

i can’t remember if the activation of the ghost portal ever being public knowledge in amity park and I’m beginning to think it wasn’t. so people don’t know why there’s a sudden influx of ghosts or where they’re coming from. people also don’t know that the fentons are the cause of all of this (which is good for their sake, but no one else’s).

and i think that was intentional. despite it being a validating scientific discovery for the fentons, it is overshadowed by all of the consequences they didn’t and couldn’t forsee as well as how unprepared they were to handle it. even if they are able to get the situation under control, they’ll never be able share their research because of the damage it caused.

(also yes the GIW know, but they were also in fentonworks before and secret government organizations don’t really share their secrets let’s be real)

Check-Up/Out

The office health check-up doesn’t quite go as envisioned but at least Kurt finally learns more about his co-worker’s relationship status.

A/N: This is the original Klaine-as-Vogue-Interns oneshot I mentioned at the end of my Klaine Advent Vogue Verse! :) The two fics are completely different except for being set in a verse where Kurt and Blaine both intern at Vogue.com.

beta’ed by @a-simple-rainbow who saves my fics from being scientifically inaccurate ;)

Rating: PG

Read on AO3

“Alright, preppy interns, ready for your health check-ups?” a voice says right behind Kurt’s ear, making him flinch and literally jump up from his desk chair.

Blaine has a similar reaction a desk away from him, though the person who approached him was much kinder, merely touching his shoulder to get his attention.

Still. Blaine is almost always so deep into his work that one could talk to him about aliens and dragons and whatnot, and he would nod and mumble, “Yeah, sounds great.”

And not just theoretically – it actually works. Kurt knows this because it’s his regular five-minute break entertainment.

“Wait, what health check-up?” Blaine asks, thankfully just as confused as Kurt.

The girl behind Blaine’s chair frowns. “The whole office is doing health check-ups today.”

“We just assumed that would just be for actual employees,” Kurt replies, trying to be kind. After all, she wasn’t the one who scared him half to death after all. “We’re just interns here.”

He spares a look at the other girl – and, yep, still scary. She has her hands on her hips and a piercing gaze, seemingly ready to roll her eyes at people 24/7.

And then she actually does roll her eyes at Kurt. “Interns have bodies, too, you know? Even Vogue interns. So, health check-up. Now. Deal with it.”

About The Lost City of Z:

Based on author David Grann’s nonfiction bestseller, THE LOST CITY OF Z tells the incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam), who journeys into the Amazon at the dawn of the 20th century and discovers evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization that may have once inhabited the region. Despite being ridiculed by the scientific establishment who regard indigenous populations as “savages,” the determined Fawcett – supported by his devoted wife (Sienna Miller), son (Tom Holland) and aide de camp (Robert Pattinson) – returns time and again to his beloved jungle in an attempt to prove his case, culminating in his mysterious disappearance in 1925. An epically-scaled tale of courage and obsession, told in Gray’s classic filmmaking style, THE LOST CITY OF Z is a stirring tribute to the exploratory spirit and those individuals driven to achieve greatness at any cost.

being chronically ill is being a fucking scientist. you have no choice but to learn how to isolate variables and you’re constantly doing experiments - except the lab is your own body. like, if you change too many things at once, you’re gonna have no idea why you feel sick(er) the next day(s)…but keeping things the same doesn’t guarantee anything either because how can you tell which thing has been the same for too long when things flare up? so you end up having to do all these micro-experiments every day hoping that your worse case hypotheses are disproven…

The librarian is reading a bunch of children a story called Worm Loves Worm. There are two worms who are in love and want to get married, but the other bugs are confused about which is the bride and which is the groom. At the end the worms decide they can both be bride and groom… which promotes inclusivity as well as being scientifically accurate!

anonymous asked:

honestly I'm so glad that you have stood your ground on things like this because I'm so tired of these special snowflakes going around making the trans community look like a bunch of stuck up sjws,, like being transgender has been SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN to be a mental illness-- it's when your mind has technically been in the wrong body and you can't change that !! you can't CHOOSE to be trans uGH but yeah sorry I'm rambling but I just wanted to say thank you hahah

Oh, the harassment and threats from the sjws don’t affect me at all. I won’t coward down and open my throat to have shit shoved down it like the majority of the witchy community on here.

anonymous asked:

What would be your favorite MS from each Gundam timeline?

Off the top of my head:

  • UC: There’s so many that it’s hard to pick, but I’d go with the Ball, just because I think it’s so fucking funny both aesthetically and from a lore perspective. Shoutout to all of Thunderbolt’s designs for being gloriously over-the-top, too.
  • FC: where do i even begin everything in g gundam was a masterpiece
  • AC: I like the Endless Waltz version of the Heavyarms. I’m a sucker for the “stupid amount of missiles” thing.
  • AW: I haven’t gotten around to watching X yet, so I’ll refrain from commenting.
  • CC: I like a lot of Turn A’s designs, but I’d have to go with the SUMO as a favorite. where are the HGs bandai you said there would be HGs
  • CE: The Stargazer Gundam is really pretty, and I love the idea of a mobile suit being refitted as unmanned scientific equipment.
  • AD: The 00 QAN[T] is slick as hell.
  • AG: I feel like a lot of AGE’s designs were kinda ho-hum, but the Farsia was neat.
  • RC: Like Turn A, G-Reco had a ton of really bizarre designs that I really liked. The G-Lucifer stands out, as does the Mack Knife.
  • PD: Every single use of the Graze frame is sexy as fuck. The Schwalbe Graze and Geirail are probably my favorites. Also, the first Gusion - bring back Big Froggo, Sunrise

keepfaithbaby  asked:

Realistically, Renesmee should have been born mute. Or maybe she could have been autistic? Let's see how would have The Cullens treated her if she wasn't their perfect little daughter they always put on pedestal.

[Hopefully it’s okay that I combined these answers into one! They were dealing with similar ideas, so I went ahead and talked about them together.]

On the one hand, I’m pretty uncomfortable with the literary theme of a family having a child with a disability and learning moral lessons as a result. I’m glad SM didn’t go there. On the other, because so much emphasis is placed upon vampires being scientific in Twilight, I initially thought Bella’s undeniably horrific pregnancy should have had scientific repercussions. 

Contemporary research suggests that maternal diet during pregnancy– and, more specifically, starving during pregnancy– can have a negative impact on the child’s cardiovascular health, tendency to get diabetes, propensity towards obesity, and even their mental health. And, because these effects are epigenetic and stem from mutations in the child’s genetic code, they are heritable by future generations. (Jacob and Nessie’s hypothetical twins might not do so well in the genetic lottery, in other words.)

Obviously, if SM applied this principle, Renesmee would be at a significant disadvantage. You don’t want cardiovascular issues if you’re growing quickly and reliant upon a rapidly-beating heart. Perhaps unsurprisingly, though, SM went the “Nessie is perfect” route. 

Ultimately, I don’t think “scientific vampires” have much to do with SM’s world-building. I doubt she ever brainstormed their properties or how they differed from the traditional, magical vampire on anything but a superficial level. Rather, a key theme in Twilight is contempt towards humanity*. In more “supernatural” universes, vampires have spiritual/magical limitations– crosses, holy water, garlic, etc.– and humans have value beyond their physical abilities, by having a soul for instance. By getting rid of that, SM made Bella’s choice a lot easier. Bella was becoming a superhero, not sacrificing something significant. 

[*Although the theme of The Host seems to be ‘yay humanity!’, so I feel like SM grew as an author or got a better handle on the implications of her writing before publishing it.]

I have a head canon Tracer is the ultimate photobomber.


I can picture D.va taking a selfie with her mech and then there’s Tracer on the top splayed out like she was there the whole time

Or maybe Zarya is showing off her work out sweat and oh look who’s behind her clapping.

Perhaps Mercy is being interviewed for a scientific journal and guess who appears in every single photo taken, posing like she’s model for Vogue.

Hell I can imagine her appearing in pictures Widow maker took to case the place her next target stays at. I don’t think Widow maker truly appreciated the blown kisses, or how she had to explain that to her superiors.

Okay, I need to vent

The new ghostbusters is very important, because it’s everything women never get to be. Smart, slimy, loud, obnoxious, goofy, heroic. These girls are being complemented on their scientific knowledge and skills. They’re covered in slime and  Kristen’s character gets to complain about it in a way that’s not all “eewww!it’s so gross”. Leslie’s character gets a funny line that’s, yeah kind of obnoxious and over the top. Men can do the lick, smell, or blow on the gun thing and it’s sexy, and Kate gets a very similar reaction when she does it. These girls are the undeniable heroes of the film, with zero chance of a man stealing their thunder. I’ve been needing a movie like this my whole life, and it’s finally here. So if you have a problem with it then you don’t have to go see it. Go cry in a corner by yourself, because I don’t need your bullshit. I need my female ghostbusters, and I’m not the only one.

wELL I’M GLAD YOU ASKED 

here is a quick list of my renamed voltron ships and how and why they are definite improvements 

not including the ships i dont like because i refuse to spend time thinking about those tbh 

Klance- 

  • Laith: prettier, smoother, just better in general but still keeping the mix of names
  • Sublimination: this is the word for when ice evaporates directly into steam due to intense heat, i thought it was pretty creative 
  • Violet lion: keeping with the color theme(since the paladins are color coded as is) this one is just obvious 
  • Bayonet: its the blade that goes on the end of a gun, so it like combines their weapons. :))) 

Shallura-

  • Parentshipping: space mom and space dad, its pretty self explanatory 
  • Orchid: light pastel colored flowers with dark spots(combines the color black/purple being associated with shiro and the pastel pinks/blues being associated with allura) 
  • Royalleo: leo being the scientific subcategory word for lion, and royal 

Shiro and Matt(i refuse to use the one they’ve been pegged with they deserve better) 

  • Miro: literally just the better name combination who in their right mind goes with the other option??? 
  • Jack-o-lion: matt seems to be associated with the color orange, so i figured it’d be hilarious. plus there’s a pun there. 
  • Gladiators: this one is obvious, this scene is like 90% of the fuel for this ship why not use it. 

Aaaand Shiro, Allura, and Matt’s polyship name is Pastel Halloween i dont make the rules but thats the only name i’ll ever use for them :T 

this is all i got on the fly
