not about bones

seraphictrip  asked:

I'm a beginner at this and I was wondering, how do you go about cleaning bones. There's this valley near my house with skulls of animals scattered here and there. Can I just use bleach or would the chemical be to harsh?

I wish this valley was near me!
I wouldn’t use bleach, it can damage the bone and make it crumbly. If the skull needs to be whitened you can soak in hydrogen peroxide. If there’s still bits of flesh scrub in hot soapy water then macerate in a bucket of water with biological washing powder. This degreases, removes stains and whitens :)

I think the word is innocently-insensitive. Papyrus may say rude things or even sound rude, but he's not a mean-spirited person at all. Personally I think you portray the bone bros perfectly! One minute they're best buds, the next they're bickering nonstop. Reminds me highly of my own relationship with my younger siblings. Some people are an only child so they never got to experience the whole sibling dynamic relationship. So summing up, Papyrus likes to give Sans tough love.

Precisely. I remember actually feeling hurt, when Papyrus says to the human: “because you have no standards” That was a true “wtf man” moments for me XD But looking at his sprite when he says that showed me, that he didn’t mean it in any, well, MEAN way. He just expressed himself, like he was stating a fact. I love it about him ^^

And thank you so much, I’m trying my best! One thing that’s great about bone bros is that they’re best buds and bickering non stop AT THE SAME TIME! How crazy is that?

anonymous asked:

who would you add or drop from Napoleon's original seven Great Captains (alexander, hannibal, caesar, Gustavus Adolphus, Turenne, Eugen, and Frederick), keeping it at seven?

It sure is intimidating to consider changing the list, they’re the Great Captains for a reason. I’d drop Turenne and Eugen, not because they are unworthy, but simply because I think they’re the weakest of the Seven. Napoleon himself should be included in a sense, since I make no bones about him being the greatest military commander to have ever lived. Not to be obtuse, but I would think Wellington should receive consideration. I’ve always found it curious how often he’s overlooked in studies of great commanders - one does not win near two dozen battles, mostly against superior numbers, whilst practically never suffering a defeat without having a great deal of ability. Including him may bring in the Wellington versus Marlborough debate, but with no disrespect to the late great Richard Holmes I still feel Wellington had the edge. 

Assuming Napoleon isn’t added to his own list, it’s a struggle not to include Genghis Khan, arguably the greatest conqueror of all. Honorable mentions should also probably be made of Rommel and Patton.  


When a king brands us pirates, he doesn’t mean to make us adversaries. He doesn’t mean to make us c r i m i n a l s. He means to make us monsters.
For that’s the only way his God-fearing, taxpaying subjects can make sense of men who keep what is theirs and fear no one. When I say there’s a war coming, I don’t mean with the Scarborough. I don’t mean with King George or England.
Civilization is coming, and it means to exterminate us.

Star Trek Character Ages

Over the past few days my sister and I have been doing very important research; we looked up the ages of all of the Star Trek characters. Quite possibly one of the most nerdy things I have spent my time doing, but, the results are quite interesting in some cases. So here you go tumblr.

*note: all of these ages were calculated using either birth years found on memory alpha or memory beta, so they may not be 100% correct, but I tried to be as accurate as possible.*

——At the start of their time on the series—–


Data-26 (based on activation date)
Beverley Crusher-40
Wesley Crusher-16

Dax (symbiont)- 351(born in 2018!!! Guys that is pretty soon)
Odo- 32 (based on date he was first found)
Quark- unknown (no recorded DOB)

The Doctor-0 (Activation date)
7 of 9-21 (however she spent time in a Borg maturation chamber)

Porthos-Unknown, but at least 2 years old

Go forth with the newfound knowledge you have gained!

The brain seems so simple. It’s pink, rounded, and just sits there inside our heads. But yet, it’s so complex. Thoughts are produced almost instantaneously. Neurotransmitters are sweeping across from one end of the body to another. What would we do without this brain ours? How would we think? How would we be able to experience anything at all?
