its a ghost thing

things with sharp edges & bullets in nazis, swearing by pushkin & tolstoy & trotsky, armor & arrows & black widow stings,these are a few of my favorite things
Humans are Weird: Spices

Alien: Today in my “Human Studies” book, I’m reading about human foods.

Human: Ooh, cool.

Alien: But I’m not sure this is accurate. It says here that humans purposely ingest a plant high in a pain-causing chemical, capsaicin.

Human: Oh, peppers? Yeah. Spicy.

Alien: But why would you want to eat something that causes you pain?

Human: Some people like the burn. I think it causes the same sort of reaction as drinking alcohol…?

Alien: That activity doesn’t make sense to me either. Can we discuss it after?

Human: Sure.

Alien: So, these “peppers.” Do you enjoy eating them?

Human: Me? Well, not by themselves. But I do like somewhat spicy foods. My brother, though, he likes them much hotter. He’s eaten some really spicy peppers, even ate a ghost pepper by itself.

Alien: Ghost pepper.

Human: Yeah, it’s the spiciest natural pepper. His face got pretty red, and he got the hiccups.

Alien: That… doesn’t sound like a healthy reaction.

Human: It just means that it’s a really spicy pepper. I mean, if I ate one of those, it might kill me, but he was fine.

Alien. Why would it kill you?

Human: Too spicy. You have to have a tolerance for capsaicin or it can literally kill you. And the ghost pepper is so hot that to handle it, you gotta wear gloves.

Alien: Your planet has plants that can KILL people, and which you can’t handle directly, and your brother ATE ONE, by ITSELF??

Human: Yeah.

Alien: …

Human: He says that when he gets desensitized to ghost pepper, he wants a Carolina Reaper.

Alien: I’m almost afraid to ask.

Human: …

Alien: What’s a Carolina Reaper?

Human: A pepper scientifically engineered for spiciness. It’s currently the world’s hottest pepper.

Alien: *stares at human in disbelief*

Alien: *stares at human studies book*

Alien: *stares at human again*

Alien: *whispers to self* How… how are humans real?

We’re happy to announce that “Ask Friday” officially begins!

Every Friday, Shojotale’s characters will reply to your questions! Here’s some more info:

  • Frisk, Chara, Sans and Asriel will answer, with the special participation of Papyrus, Undyne, Alphys, Mettaton, Toriel and Asgore.
  • The standard for the answers is a little chibi art of the character involved, but there could be some new art/comics depending on our inspiration.
  • Since the story in still ongoing, the characters will reply to the asks depending on what has already happened in the comic; for example, if they don’t know something yet, they won’t be able to reply properly to questions related to that particular thing etc…
  • You can send asks everyday and we’ll reply every Friday to a maximum of 15 asks; don’t worry if you don’t see your ask immediately, we’ll get to it eventually!

Hope some of you will be interested ~ our ask box is always open! See ya the next week!

aint-nothing-but-a-drifter  asked:

Hey Bucky! I love reading about your perspective on life. I was wondering, have you bonded with Tony over non-consensual body modifications? And, has he/does he help out at all with the technical support of your arm?

tony and i have talked about our super fun experiences with becoming cyborgs, yes, and i guess we bonded? honestly though tony and i spend a lot of time geeking out about science and engineering. im nowhere near his level but when hes stumbled across something that really gets him excited he likes to share it with anyone who will listen and im one of the few people in the tower who is genuinely interested in that stuff. bruce is too but is interests are more focused. so often tony will just burst into whatever room im hanging out in and begin ranting about whatever neat science thing has happened. often he is still smoking from whatever explosion he just accidentally set off. 

tony and i mostly bond over cars. both of us are car nerds–or gearheads, if you wanna be picky about it–and we spend a lot of time working on the cars tony already has or just chatting about cars in general. natasha joins us a lot too, believe it or not. she has strong opinions about cars, both as accessories for her various covers, and as getaway vehicles. eventually i think it just kinda turned into an actual interest in cars. so she and tony and i argue cars a lot, because the rest of the avengers couldnt care less. clint drives an ancient pickup truck that is probably more bullet holes than steel, thor is half convinced that every car is gonna hit him (to be fair to thor, hes been hit by cars a lot) bruce just drives whatever, and steve seems to think that cars are some sort of range weapon. 

tony does do my arm maintenance. last time my arm broke it was because he summoned the iron man armor across the city while i was stuffing the insides full of glitter. it broke all of my metal fingers. tony fixed them all except my middle finger, which is currently stuck in flipping-off position. doesnt bother me much though because i do that a lot anyway

1. omgg thank you so so much ;; it means a lot that you want to read it til the end even though it only just started. hope you’ll continue to like it <3

2. yep i think it will break hearts a little?? 💔 i want to say it’s going to be cute as hell but it would be a lie (please don’t let my art style fool you) … the kinda direction it’ll go:

3. thank you!! a while back i gave a longer explanation here

but to make it short, a nightmare brought the characters to me, even though that sounds weird but it’s really what happened  🌷 i dreamed of them and many other weird things (i drowned so often i tell u) while i was on more medication. my memories of these dreams are still so vivid, it would be a waste not to use them, and that’s what inspired me for many of the scenes that are yet to come


Festive icons I made for you and your number one

bbabyfface  asked:

do you fancy anyone right now? if so, whats your favorite thing about them? ;000 or if you dont like anyone, tell us about your favorite friend!

yes i do :0 that would have to be my gf cat ^^ um a lot tbh she’s super nice and cute and makes me happy but aLsO i just recently heard her voice for the first time and. oml

do you ever just… feel yourself become attached to a character even though this isn’t your fandom, you have seen literally zero content for this, all you know is that the character is a socially awkward robot and you already love them? yeah… this is starting to become an Issue. 


I’ll leave the context to your imaginations (Chicon 2016)
