definitely not science

anonymous asked:

How can I become a bird?

Option 1: Several million years of highly selective breeding

Pros: Low demand, high return.

Cons: …Eventually. 

Conclusion: Very worth it, for your (great)800  grandchild. The real deal. Possibility of ending up with mammalian scansoriopterygids along the way. 10/10 would recommend. 

Option 2: Several thousand dollars worth of gear and training

Pros: Immediate returns. 

Cons: Possibility of death. Even worse, people take you for some kind of winged mammal instead. Horrible

Conclusion: Totally worth being poor as heck and dead. Won’t survive long enough to further your species, so who cares what your offspring might think. 10/10 would definitely.

Option 3: 

Pros: Well

Cons: Yikes

Conclusion: Maybe………………………………. don’t.


Okay so I was talking with @picnokinesis about the magic copier and how Ford and Fiddleford were both too big to copy themselves but then I thought about them copying a caricature of one of them and wondering if that’ll work? 

THEN I remembered that episode of Spongebob called Franklendoodle where there was a giant pencil and a doodle Spongebob and this bunch of stupid doodles were born xD Enjoy 


Geometry at work: Euclid, Vignelli and Betts

Geometrical illustration

Geometrical representation meant to visually aid geometric definitions and axioms, in the attempt to eliminate possible error in transcribing the message from one scribe to another.

Print Standard

For Vignelli, the print standard is o conscious contribution to the environment. When choosing the format of a publication, one must take account of the impact on trees or pollution.

Geometry of consciousness

The spiral lines of experience or memory encircling the form of consciousness.

Do birds make you more attractive to the opposite sex?

This is a difficult question to answer specifically, because obviously, and statistically, birds make you more attractive to literally everyone. Are you a human? Have you seen this mysterious stranger with a bird? Are you suddenly and inexplicably intrigued?? Are you the opposite sex? Same sex? Any sex?? Gender? Any gender??? EVERYBODY??!? GET ON IT

Human Central Nervous System and Peripheral Nervous System Connections

The central nervous system (CNS) of the human consists of the brain, spinal cord, and cranial nerve II (the optic nerve which connects to the eyeball).

When compared to the peripheral nervous system (PNS), the CNS differs in several key ways. It’s largely autonomic (requires no input for it to work) instead of voluntary, is much more protected (by bone and the blood-brain barrier), and interprets input, rather than integrating it.

As the PNS is much less protected, it’s vulnerable to damage by toxins, disease, mechanical injury, and autoimmune disorders. The degenerative conditions of the CNS are almost always hereditary.
