The Russian Sleep Experiment Is the Freakiest Story Ever Told… But Is It True?  

This is the story of the Russian Sleep Experiment. You must decide for yourself whether this terrifying tale is a hoax… or the horrible truth.

In the 1940s, scientists in Russia decided to test the effects of extreme sleep deprivation, sealing five people into a small room and exposing them to a gas stimulant to keep them awake. Monitoring their subjects through glass portholes and microphones and providing them with a month’s worth of dried foodstuffs, the experiment began.

Very little happened for five days, except that the subjects began discussing deeper emotional issues as their sleep deprivation wore down their social reserve. Then their behavior took a turn for the worse.

The subjects became paranoid and stopped communicating with each other, convinced that they were trapped in the experiment through each others’ treachery. They turned their backs on one another, whispering strange, inaudible things into the microphones.

Nine days passed before the first man began to scream.

Terra came in shortly after and kissed her on the head. Morning sleeping beauty, how are you feeling?

Incredible lucky, also a little sore. 

Have you totaled up your profits?

Yes, we made 9,000 last night, including restocking.

Holy shit. Terra exclaimed.

That’s amazing. You do realize you could quit your job right?

Lucina hadn’t thought of that, it was just one night, what if she never did that well again? Oh, I don’t know about that.

Sweetheart, that’s what? 10 months worth of your current salary in one day alone? You could definitely do without your job.

It is, but I figured we would split the profits equally. It is everyone’s money who went into that building.

Yes, but it is also your drive that went into that building, your dedication. We gave you financial backing. If we were a bank you would have already paid us back a fifth, and we’re not a bank. 

Maya nodded agreeing with Terra, You have a slew of vacation days, why don’t you think about using those they’re free money after all, and think it over?

That’s a good idea. I’ll do that.

I don’t know if this has been seen or not (it was new to me).  This is a short film done by Coca~Cola (in Brazil) directed by Dustin Lance Black featuring Clouds in the background again.  The film is about a gay boy in the closet and it is worth a look.  Very cute and with a powerful message about friendship (the continuing theme we have been seeing for a while now).  I find it very interesting for a number of reasons.  1D had to sign off on the use of the song for this film.  It was directed by Dustin.  The subject matter…I’m of the opinion that this is NOT  a coincidence.

I would like to thank derienestuff for submitting this to me!!!


Color Palette Meme: Rinharu + 1 & 4 request by kurokucchi & anon ღ

“…From the moment i met you, the world just opened up before me. This wide, wide world that spreads out forever… I’m sure you could see it too, if you’d just lift your head and look, Haru.”

pphew! sorry for the late reply to these >.< i figured id just reply to all these in one post with some pics. Below are the watercolors i use and the the gold paints (keep in mind those pics i posted were like first attempts @_@ im still getting used to these…)

The water colors are Mjello Mission Gold Watercolors in the 34 tube set and the gold palette are the FineTec Artist Mica Watercolors in the Pearl set. 

Now I’ll state first– both these sets are kinda pricey. The FineTec palette (about $27) is so worth it though because it comes in different golds and one tube of gold gouache is usually like $9 each or more depending on the amount of mica, so def worth the price and variety.

Below: from lightest to darkest on ivory tinted paper [Silver, Moon Gold, Gold Pearl, Arabic Gold, Tibet Gold, & Inca Gold] they look SUPER outstanding on black paper as well!

my fav is the richest one, the Inca Gold.

They are super nice, but if you plan on getting them, they are super HARD palettes! It’ll take a lot of scrubbing to get them activated and to have that nice gouache-like thickness, so if you don’t want to ruin your nice brushes, I def recommend getting some Ox Gall. Adding a drop or two of this will get them activated in no time, and with a nice opaque thickness. (the brand I have below they dont sell anymore, but other brands still make it)

As for the water colors, ehhh i feel weird cuz those vegetas were like my first attempts with this brand. Ive always used the Sakura Koi 24 color set palette because theyre super nice and super cheap (like $20) and Ive had them for years. I only got these because I wanted higher-grade watercolors in tubes. But they are very expensive, but for good reasons: they have a lot of pigment, which makes them so vibrant and bright and theyre designed to be very close to natural colors, not to mention theyre so SMOOTH when painting and they’ll probs last me forEVER because you get so much color with very little water.

(opera is best color IMHO) here’s a color chart I made (that took FOREVER btw) to give you an idea how beautiful they are and how many nice colors they make

so yea! those are the paints I used for those particular pics. Course if you would like a nice, cheap watercolor recommendation that works pretty well, Sakura Koi’s are a fantastic substitute. …..SORRY IF THIS WAS LONG i just akdfhalkfhd i like talking about traditional hope this was at least a little informative >.< if anyone has questions or wants some recommendations (while also saving some money) feel free to ask! I’ll help in any way i can with what i know, cuz despite posting mostly digital art, I am a traditional art supply FANATIC. 

Eat stars,
Like you have
A black hole hunger
That swells under your ribs,
Where Canis Minor used to lie.

Eat stars,
With the ferocity
Of clashing atoms,
And plasmatic solar storms,
Leaving cosmic dust in your wake.

Eat stars,
In an ode to
Your effervescent,
Kaleidoscopic magnificence,
Even if no one else can see it.
