science bad

what do you think would happen if a human who was into the alternative, body-mod scene? or someone with ear piercings? like, say this human is turned, but he/she had piercings and tattoos. the tattoos would disappear because the transformation makes the skin flawless, but would the piercings remain or be pushed out of the body?

I’m pretty convinced that piercings would be pushed out of the body. Perhaps, if a creator were super-dedicated, they could either try and hold the piercings in place or ’re-open’ the piercing and seal the edges with their own venom to make it scar rather than heal perfectly. Most creators don’t bother with this, though. It’s a combination of not caring that much and being aware that the newbie vampire might not even be into body mods within a few months.

I’ve always found this a little sad. A human devotes a significant amount of time and effort to looking a certain way, and venom’s like… “Nah. Let’s erase all of that.” It’d be really neat to meet a vampire who preferred his or her human appearance, because the view of transformation we get in Twilight is so overwhelmingly positive.

Why T1OO is a bad show

It’s not just that there are obvious problems with characterization, pacing and tone-deafness to audience reaction.

It’s that the show is also fundamentally bad science.

It’s not only tapping into popular misconceptions and fears about the dangers of nuclear reactors as sources of worldwide destruction (which is an essay in itself but the bottom line is that it’s entirely possible to design reactors with multiple redundancies and safety protocols such that they would shut down harmlessly if, say, people realized a nuclear war was about to happen), but it’s also perilously close to, if not actually endorsing, the idea that human experimentation is acceptable on non-volunteers if it serves the greater good as conceived by a person or group of people.

And that should bother people.

I am a science anon and yes if they both have the recessive gene then its possible, (weird thing is is that her dad had green eyes, not blue.) also YEAH. I went to the principles office a lot that year cause i was kicking everyones ass. Sad thing is, my teacher was a total racist and continued to send me to the office for c h e a t i n g. I never cheated, i was a smart M e X i C a N kid. she HATED me, like damn. It was her personal goal to just ruin me, im not joking. 2nd fucking grade.

(i’m glad my science was correct lol i’m an artist so i’m like,,,,bad at science) 

and YEAH SHIT LIKE THAT HAPPENED TO ME TOO like in middle school my huge bitch of an 8th grade math teacher told me (after finding out i was going to go to a prestigious arts high school) that she didn’t know my kind could get into schools like that. MY. KIND. i was 13. 

my friend is studying for the mcat and was just trying to explain to me about heat transfer and she said ‘you know, like the reason you get cold when you go outside on a freezing day is that your tiny human body is trying to warm up the entire universe’ and i think that’s the best thing i have ever heard
