exposed brain

The profession of surgery, then, presents an interesting state of affairs: it attracts some of the best and brightest, but is heavily reliant on tools, manual labor, routine, sacrifice, a large support staff, and a narrow focus. This combination can represent, at extremes, the perfect sweet spot or the perfect recipe for burnout.

what she says: I’m fine
what she means: in the Pinky and the Brain short Bubba Bo Bob Brain, the entirety of people exposed to Brain’s subliminal messages can’t have all heard his message to “forget you ever knew me”. His records were still out in the world, and his television appearances were still on tape. Why wasn’t there immediate suspicion when an incredibly famous singer and his manager disappeared? Were people who remembered Brain’s career just indifferent to the fact that he was gone? Did Bubba Bo Bob Brain become an urban legend that turned out to be tr

YES, EVEN HONEY BOO BOO AND HER MOTHER CAN DO IT TOO!

A. HOW DOES IT WORK, YOU ASK?

Well, thanks to cutting edge technology of sharp, pointy objects and the way brain works it is very simple to just take everything a native speaker knows and give it to YOU, the PERSON SEEKING SELF GAIN AT ANOTHER’S EXPENSE. And that’s all there is to it!

B. WELL HOW DO I KNOW IF I’M A CANDIDATE?

As long as you’re human and have a brain you can attempt this procedure. Success is not guaranteed, but it can’t hurt to try, can it?

C. ALL IT TAKES IS SIX (SIX) EASY STEPS

  1. Cut the native speaker’s skull open, exposing the brain.
  2. Cut your skull open, exposing the brain.
  3. Take the language-y parts out of the native speaker’s brain.
  4. Put them into your brain.
  5. Seal your skull.
  6. (Optional, not included in the time estimate) Hide the body.

AND VOILÀ, YOU HAVE ACHIEVED FLUENCY

  • you try to hide in your closet. it doesn’t work. they break in. you have to escape.
  • probably not fluency lol
  • loss of family
  • you escape through the window and run away from your house. you hear sirens in the distance
  • vague feeling of loss that haunts you for the rest of your life as you feel guilty for what you have done and struggle to stand the real repercussions of your actions
  • you catch a taxi to who knows where, it might as well be hell
  • infamy
  • hey, on the bright side, you could get on the news
  • republicanism
  • you live the rest of your life on the run. why did you have to do this??? was it really worth it??? you may not even be fluent now. all you want to do is cry, but if you cried for too long they’d catch you
  • death again

That’s all for now, hope you find this useful!!!💜

Dans mask is a horrid ugly starfish cyclops, once fully bonded to him, the mask can unravel to expose a spiky brain with googly eyes connected to a long bony tendril used for surveillance of its immediate vicinity. It also acts like a flail.

This sounds bad, but if I have to be honest? His mask is much worse than that.

Someone please explain this to me… when you burn the Loboto Leviathan’s showercap in his mind, you see his somewhat exposed brain underneath. However, that can’t be all that’s under that showercap, right? Because it has a very strange shape and his brain isn’t THAT swollen. Also, Raz remarks that what’s under that cap is tough and you can’t use clairvoyance on him because of it. The answer may be obvious to some, but I still don’t quite understand.

All quiet on the art front recently, and it’s because I’m getting this Ruvik cosplay ready for Sakura Con.  I thought the progression of the robe was really cool.  What you see is 1) Ruvik’s robe right after sewing, free of distressing or dye, 2) Robe after distressing, but before any dye work, and 3) Robe distressed, fully dyed, and sealed.

I can’t WAIT to put the entire thing on all together.  I also have photos of the make up test we performed with one of the scar sleeves.  The list of things I have done and still need to do:

- 2/2 scar sleeves completed
- ½ scar leggings completed
- invisible shoes still need to be made
- headpiece (for that bald, skull-cut-away, exposed-brain look) at about 50% completion
- pants dyed, drying now, just need to be sealed
- make up test the ENTIRE head/face because no way am I trying to make that headpiece work for the first time on the morning of the convention
