this is about as science as i get

(Bruce Banner x Tony Stark): And They Were Roommates!

Summary: College!AU where Tony Stark and Bruce Banner are roommates freshman year and also hella in love with each other.
A/N: I think about that vine a lot tbh. Plus, who doesn’t love the #sciencebros


  • So they get to school, and Bruce is already halfway moved in when Tony shows up
  • Tony’s got Jarvis carrying all of his stuff up to the room for him and is just eating pizza while Bruce is trying to build a bookcase
  • Their first conversation is so awkward
    • “Hi, I’m Bruce, you must be-”
    • “Of course, and no, I’m not going to introduce you to my dad.”
    • Bruce (poor bby) is so confused, “What?”
    • “I can’t to introduce you to my dad, HOWARD STARK.”
    • “Oh my god, you’re that Tony Stark?”
    • “Duh, I thought this was a school for geniuses.”
    • “Sorry, I just didn’t connect the names together, and I never would have thought I’d be rooming with someone rich.” “Anyway, that’s your half of the room
    • And Tony’s like, that’s it? No questions?
    • Bruce just shrugs, not really, sorry.
  • Tony quickly realizes that Bruce is an ACTUAL GENIUS
    • He knows he’s a genius, but Bruce is another level
    • Like,,,he’s kinda freaked out
    • …..and a lil turned on (don’t worry it’s not weird)
  • So obviously Tony is beating himself over the head for royally fucking up his first impression
    • But Bruce literally doesn’t care
    • And is just like, as friendly and chill as he can be
    • Even though he’s still hella shy
  • But Tony reads the shyness as indifference that he assumes is his fault
  • Luckily, Bruce slowly warms up to Tony
    • And they start talking more
    • Which leads to hanging out more
    • Which leads to them both feeling some major feels
    • But not wanting to ruin their friendship
    • Like the roommate thing would be hella awkward if they said stuff
  • But they slowly start acting more and more coupley
  • And start doing more coupley things
    • Like they literally go on dates
    • But call them ‘study dates’ so they’re just a friend  t h i n g
    • And share things
  • And are SO coupley
  • People start mistaking them for a couple
    • And they get hella defensive
    • “Um, ew, we’re just friends. Can men not have close relationships?”
    • While they’re literally sharing a bowl of froyo
    • Or like holding hands
  • So obviously they eventually confess their feelings to each other
  • It’s in the middle of the night
  • Bruce was up late working on homework and Tony just couldn’t sleep
    • So they got to that 2am high where everything is really funny and you start just saying shit
    • And Tony just kind of blurts it out
    • And there’s silence for a beat
    • And Bruce just replies “yeah, i like you too”
    • And then they just kind of are quiet for a long time
  • Next morning they are both so awkward and trying to pretend they didn’t talk about things
  • But eventually it gets too be just too awkward so bruce is just like
  • “What do we do now. If two people like each other they just date. Why is this so hard?”
  • And tony just shrugs and nods before kissing him
    • BAM they dating now
  • And nothing has changed between them

Great Big Character Dump

Thought it’d be nice to set up a sort of reference sheet of all my characters for now. Eventually I think I’ll try to get a page with links and stuff set up, but this works until I figure that out. Feel free to ask if you want to learn more about a specific character or have me post more writing for them.

Icarus Crew: my original science fiction universe centered on the crew members of the cargo vessel Icarus.

- Aurelia: Captain. She’s buff. She’s angry. She’s way smarter than you. She was the result of a very illegal genetic experiment to create a sort of “super human”. As such how she was raised was rather awful, and as an adult she turned to drugs and alcohol, as well as other self destructive behaviors, to cope. She’s working on recovering with the help of her crew. She relishes in the freedom having her own ship provides, even though it’s often difficult. (Art by cavahn on instagram)

- Oörna: Interpreter/Client Liason. Oörna is a linguistic expert doing research on the impact of trade routes on the various Lishtian dialects in the sector. Their pet interest, however, is humans and early earth cultures, so they were delighted to get the chance to travel on Icarus. They exchange their services as an interpreter and mediator (Aurelia isn’t great with the clientele) for a ride around the sector to further their studies. (Art by @catbatart )

- Dian: Engineer. Dian is a Hawaiian islander who had never been to space, barring a couple puddle jumps to the moon and mars for class trips as a kid, before a dare lead him to pursue the position of engineer’s assistant on a colony supply cruiser. He fell in love with spacefaring, and eventually found himself as Icarus’ engineer. He’s deaf and communicates exclusively through sign, and in addition to his love and skill with engines he is an avid gardener. His quarters are filled with greenery and various engine parts he’s working on. (Art by @bigbuffpugpuff )

- Teliik: Security/Muscle. Teliik may be aboard the ship to look scary and keep raiders from attempting to steal the cargo, but in reality she is a very kind and gentle soul. She is one of the few surviving members of her species, and she lost her entire family group- including her young child- to the plague that decimated their planet. She couldn’t cope with all the ghosts that surrounded her there, so left for the stars, floating around taking odd jobs until she ended up with the Icarus. She is working hard to find the balance between moving on from her grief and holding on to her culture. (Art by @catbatart )

- Andy (Andromeda): Pilot. To say that space and flying is in her blood is perhaps an understatement. Andy is a natural and a prodigy at the controls, and while her youth can make her cocky and reckless in equal measure, there’s no denying that she’s an amazing flyer. Her father was from a Chinese farming colony, and her mother a Nigerian Generation ship, but after the two fell in love (both with each other and the stars) they ran a small surveying vessel together, where they raised their daughter. Andy is a trans girl, 13-16 depending on the timeline I’m writing in. She lost her leg in the same accident her mother died in and uses a prosthetic. Her dad left after the accident, and she hopes to someday be able to find him. (Art by @catbatart )

Dragon Age: these characters are mine from the Dragon age universe, though I’ve taken some creative liberties.

- Fenny Brosca: Fenny feels all her emotions very fully, both the positive and the negative. While the life of a warden during the blight is difficult and awful in many ways, she is so thankful to Duncan for recruiting her. She adores the surface, and is often a ray of sunshine for her companions, telling jokes and playing pranks even when the road is hard. She does, however, struggle a lot with guilt and anger, and both can get the best of her if she’s not careful. (Art by @bloodydamnit )

- Wren: a wilderness guide and scout originally from the Free Marches, her past is often a mystery. She is most at home in the silence of the wilds, setting snares, gathering herbs, and sleeping under the stars. She prefers to avoid trouble whenever possible, but when it finds her she is an adept fighter with her staff. While she doesn’t talk much, and prefers her solitude, she is not one to pass by when someone needs help, and will give her assistance, without question, to those who need it. She, altered some for setting, is also my Arcana Game apprentice. (Art by @linliness )

Miscellaneous: my characters that have names and set aesthetics, but perhaps not yet much in the realm of stories and personalities.

- Fell (Felice): a night elf from an urban fantasy world, Fell runs a mystical coffee shop of possibilities, which is nowhere and everwhere at once. She trades in stories as well as her lemon scones, and is always there if you stumble through the doors of the coffee shop, glad to listen and offer you a cup of your favorite beverage, though you don’t know how she guessed it on the first try. (Photo and custom by me. Doll is Boypink re:Sen on a Dollstown Elf body)

- Nimh: Nimh is a tiny knight from a world of floating cities and fleeting ideas, where the large and small folk live side by side in harmony. She is one of the last of the guardian knights, who are in place to protect the sky cities against an almost forgotten enemy, the dark seeds. When seeds start returning to the world, she has to find a way to protect her city and stop the invasion, all while navigating the obstacles of a place that is just a bit too big for her. (She is canonically 18cm tall). She wields a sword made from a nail, wears armor modified from spoons, and rides a trained rat if she needs to get somewhere in a hurry. (Picture and custom by me. Doll is a Bardo Research Peme)

“i should produce something more than sporadic headcanon dumps” i say to myself as i jot down a mimi headcanon dump

  • keeps a small garden on the balcony of all her apartments. flowering cacti are her favorites, obviously.  
  • consider her and miyako dyeing their hair to match at some point? so mimi gets pink with purple highlights and miyako keeps the purple but gets pink highlights
  • is bi mimi even a headcanon now like… it’s pretty canon at this point fam
  • (can we talk about her kissing meiko in the one movie though)
  • a big maya angelou fan. has read at least I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings and some of her poetry by the time she moves back to japan.
  • was absolutely a theater/drama major in college, but had a kind of random-seeming minor like political science or something that doesn’t really mesh with her main area of study but makes total sense if you know mimi as a person.
  • really good at SFX makeup - has the potential to be one of those terrifyingly accurate cosplayers if she wanted to. not much of a fan of the horror makeup because Reasons, but has definitely wowed people at conventions before. 
  • one time she did her makeup to look like palmon because she wanted to see what it would look like and, while she did a fantastic job, the end result was so Uncanny Valley she and palmon have agreed to never speak of it again
  • the first time her biology class did a dissection, she freaked out and cried so hard that another student had to escort her to the nurse’s office and she missed all of her classes that day. the survivor’s guilt still rears its head from time to time even after several years. 
  • there are a lot of things she misses about life in america - her friends from school, she was thinking of trying out to be a cheerleader, etc. - but she’s really bummed that she doesn’t have school dances built into her high school experience now. she may or may not have plans for ending up on student council to see if she can do anything about this. 
  • she and daisuke lived together at one point and it was a thing to behold. they got along great and had a lot in common, but anyone who visited their tiny apartment basically got treated to a two-person iron chef competition that got really rapidly out of hand.
  • one memorable incident had mimi forget she was holding a meat cleaver while she was gesturing to something and nearly removing daisuke’s hand at the wrist. on the bright side, daisuke nearly set a grease fire in the kitchen the following week, so they agreed to call it a draw.

When your president wants to cut funding to science then you have this shit that tells you how much we NEED science!

Quality Nadiya moments

  • “Is it mandatory?”
  • “So why doesn’t everyone introduce themselves?” “Nadiya leaves to go request a song”
  • Repeatedly requesting “she blinded me with science”
  • “You want me to pause what I’M doing to help you stack your burgers”
  • Writing formulas on cocktail napkins for funsies
  • “I was only working on life-saving technology, but I’ll be sure to get you that Wendy’s recipt.”
  • 3 syllables into Joe telling her to lighten up Travis added that she doesn’t care for Joe in the group chat
  • Threatening to ruin another person’s entire career while “walking on sunshine” plays in the background
  • The pure disdain she holds for Remy and everything he stands for
  • “And I made it and you’re welcome”
  • “Can everyone stop talking about my miracle of science like it’s disgusting?”
  • Rolling up her sleeve to show where she grafted biopolymer to her own skin when they wouldn’t approve human testing “and now I’m in the running for a Nobel Prize”
  • “Is it mandatory?” “You know with you i’m just gonna start saying everything’s mandatory”

  1. read classics - I know from experience its a slow but steady climb when it comes to reading classics, but it’s a worth while experience to put yourself in world that so different from the world now but mirrors it quite the same. Reading classical opens you mind to how simple but complex the human race is. It might seem like chore especially if your not a reader but you can start by just picking a classical that ficinated you the most  and listening to it on audiobook first. After a couple times of listening on audiobook you’ll get used to rhythm of the language and it’ll be easier to continue reading on your own. Also, pro tips- if you really wanna kick it up a notch, write a short review for every classic you read to help retain the info. 
  2. expand your genres-  Everyones knows there’s a lot to be learned from movies, tv show and music but for most of us, once we learn what kind of genres we like we tend to never branch out and this limits our learning. You don’t have to like every genre but exposing yourself to different styles of music and movies teaches you tolerance and after a while of forcing yourself to do this, you might find your pallet start to shift.  
  3. watch youtube videos- This is one of my favorite ways to not only be entertained but to get a general overview of a certain topic, usually if it sparks my interest i’ll do a little further research. Youtube channels such as ted-ed, asap science, scishow and today i found out do an amazing job of giving you a little bit of knowledge about everything.
  4. listen to people who have different opions than you- I know this one is particularly hard one for most people, but your going to learn the least from having repeptive conversations with people with the same ideas as you. People with different opinions than you will have an impact on how you live your life wether you like it or not; its not your job to accept their ways of thinking but to understand why they think the way they do- you never know, you might just find that the other persons opinion has some merit and might make you more knowlegable about a certain situation. A great way to do this is to watch interviews, read articles about the opposing side of your opinion.
  5. Accept that you’ll never know everything- This is an important one, you may be thinking, how does this have to do with educating myself? well, I added this one because I truly feel like you can’t educate yourself without acknowledging your ignorance. A person who thinks they know eveything has no room to learn. One of the most powerful ways to educate your self is to accept that you are never going to be finished learning, this opens you up and makes you more receptive to lessons we learn in life everyday. So in short, if you want to be more educated, just live! we’re all life long students and that’s okay.

Questlove, The Roots

Q: What message do you want to share with young people of color?  

A: We live in a culture of celebrity and the cult of personality, I mean a reality show participant is our president, because we live in such a celebrity obsessed society… It’s my dream, at least in the times that we live in now, especially now that I have one foot in entertainment, and one foot in the white collar world, I want more people to be more crazy about science and being lawyers and being more about business and education. I know that entertainment seems fun, but first of all I’ll tell them it’s a lot of work… Rather than fund someone’s demo, I’d rather fund someone’s app idea… I’m all about music and that sort of thing on my social media, but a lot of times, when I meet an 11 or 12 year old, I’m trying to tell them, “yo man, create apps,” trying to get prepared for the future. I want them to dream about being a lawyer. Now I want journalists to tell the truth, that sort of thing, that’s what I encourage more. I think that’s a blanket statement that I’d like to share with people. Being a celebrity might “seem” fulfilling, but it’s diminished returns. I’d rather encourage them to do something of substance. 

johanna mason from the hunger games is a lesbian and it’s important yall know this fact

I don’t wanna say “fuck customers”, because I understand why people do the thing I’m complaining about… but really, it’s annoying to see people purposely misplace “gendered” items, ie boys clothes hanging up in front of the girls clothes.

So, I get the message. People want boys’ science-y shirts (or sport themed, etc) for girls, vice verse. Personally I don’t have a problem with that. If I see a boys’ shirt that doesn’t have something similar for girls, I just buy the boys’ shirt for my daughter. My issue is what I feel is ignorance towards the employees you’re creating more, and mostly unnecessary, work for.

These people think they’re sending a message straight to corporate. Managers, and their bosses above them, aren’t gonna get this message. The message they’ll get is that their employees “aren’t doing their jobs.” This could result in negative consequences (harsh store meetings, hours cut, raises withheld, etc) for employees, because hey that’s retail.

The most effective thing you could do is contact corporate directly. Post on their social media, visit their website and click on that “Contact Us” link. I feel these aforementioned techniques work because a lot of stores will listen and work toward catering to this clientele (like Bullseye removing gender signs for their toy section, the Place for Children playing up the brains instead of beauty message for girls, etc).

Don’t be the type of person who misplaces stuff on purpose because you think you’re sending a message. 😓 I get what you’re trying to do, but it affects sales associates - not corporate.

BTS AS BUZZFEED UNSOLVED QUOTES

jin: “I live my life by one adage and that’s “don’t fuck with demons”

yoongi: “I’ve run the permutations through my little computer and all of them say you’re fucked.”

namjoon: “I love the thought of someone getting eaten by crabs.”

hoseok: if anyone is here please make a sound *sound happens* WHA T THE FUCK!!!!

jimin: “If I see people taller than me, I get concerned about them.”

taehyung: “May mean that you stick your finger in a butthole or two, that’s just— that’s just science”

jungkook: “Why don’t you punch me in the face, maybe smack me around a little? What are you, a wussy?”

anonymous asked:

is an egg a solid or a liquid

you know what? that’s an excellent question. let’s think about this.

at its simplest, an egg is a single reproductive cell. can cells be defined as either solid or liquid? i’d argue that they can not be classified and that they’re more of a heterogeneous mixture, but i do not have much expertise in this area.

assuming you meant a generic, uncooked, unfertilized chicken egg, i believe i can claim with confidence that its outer shell is solid. whether this counts as a part of the egg or more like bonus content is up to you

do you ever think about the fact that you sat in front of your computer screen and watched one direction do skits, try and spectacularly fail at world record attempts, make pottery, and have a wrestling match and a runway show, and other random shit overrun with technical difficulties and a dash of jerry springer for 8 hours straight 

and then do you ever start crying when you think about how you’d literally give one of your own organs to have a 2k17 repeat

Shit my wife has said to our cat, part 6

- Eat your gruel, orphan. Big Momma loves you.

- Is the devil your sponsor? Was he there as your midwife to usher you into this world?

- Are you poxed, you sunnovabitch? Look at him! He’s poxed!

- (singing) you’re just a chicken in a cat suiiiit!

               -(still singing, to the tune of Nelly Furtado’s hit single) I’m like a biiiird, a               chicken in cat suit! I can’t fly awayyyy! Cause chickens can’t flyyyyy.

- Throw some dirt on it! You’re terrible! You’re beautiful! You’re a gremlin! You’re so…. fucking CUTE.

- You love me so much and I don’t give a lick! That’s not true. I’d save you from a fire, I guess, if you were conveniently found. I mean, if you were waiting by the door I’d pick you up. 

- Kill the string! Murder it so it cannot have children.

- You just had to be an eyeball-sniffing bitch!

- Hi, buddy! How’s it going? We were just talking about wieners. Half of yours was cut off!

- You moved so I could hold your belly! Your belly is a superhighway to your butt! We learned about your body today, Miss Kitty! Science and anatomy! 

- You purr because you are full of bees, angry bees that you swallowed because you are the swallower of bee worlds. 

- Oh my God your face! Your stupid fucking face! You’re so cute? Put it in a box you stupid face. Face. FACE.

- That’s right! Big momma knows how to love you right! That should be the name of my boxcar band.

- You should be dipped in soapy water and used to clean dishes. At least you’d get a bath then, you little shit.

- You’re okay. No, no, you’re a shithead, but on my list of shitheads you’re pretty high up there.

- I just peed for like thirty minutes. My bladder was so full it was painful. And I’m telling you this, cat, because you seem to want to piss everywhere.

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5

Grishaverse Characters as High School Teachers

Kuwei: Chemistry

“I’m 87% sure this won’t blow up so I don’t think you need goggles for this lab”


Nikolai: That overzealous AP World History teacher that talks really fast and has trouble being a neutral party in global matters because he has Opinions™

“Okay so lemme just put it out there that Christopher Columbus was an actual DICK and he was NOT A GOOD NAVIGATOR BECAUSE AS AN EXPERIENCED SAILOR I CAN TELL YOU-”

“Fuck lesson plans just make something snazzy”


Matthias: AP Calculus

*Actual responsible and well-thought-out teaching methods*


Zoya: Earth Science

“Let’s learn about some motherfucking rocks and some motherfucking weather, BITCHES”


Kaz: Would hold some sort of administrative position like Principal or Vice Principal

*Actually doesn’t give a fuck when kids do bad things. Only really gets mad when there’s bullying and discrimination involved, but otherwise with phones, cheating, and stealing, he really doesn’t care*


Inej: Foreign language teacher

*Glances around* “Okay, kids, today’s lesson is on how to curse the fuck out of people you hate without them knowing-”


Mal: Gym Teacher that doubles as a football coach

Bonus:

The Darkling: Creepy guy who sells drugs in the school parking lot

Hopping on the ‘humans are weird’ train again, I just realized that there’s probably one universally recognized group of sentients that would love humans, and they are the scientists. I remember reading another article commenting on how movie representations of scientists generally being grumpy about known science being contradicted is actually inaccurate, since the core tenant of pretty much every science out there is to ask questions, run tests, and make discoveries. Scientists, when you get right down to it, are basically a bunch of people who really want to know stuff and understand it and examine every aspect of it, and get excited when all this results in even more exciting new questions!

And humans? By golly, do we want to do stuff! Explore your death planet that you’ve been curious about for years, but were physically incapable of setting foot on? Hell yes, this is either going to be an adventure or a really cool vacation, we will totally let you fund us to go explore something no one else has ever seen before!

You wanna figure out how the hell we work? What a coincidence, so do we, let’s just get a few ground rules down and then we’ll introduce you to the medical professionals, the psychologists, and the anthropologists, we can have a big old chat on just what makes humans tick!

We broke, like, six billion safety regulations and overturned a few fundamental beliefs on how the universe works, and yet somehow we’re still alive and thriving? There are a handful of underpaid space doctorate holders tossing off their space fast food aprons, because their time has come and they are about to be so relevant to the scientific community, and it’s beautiful!!!

And then, of course, our scientists meet their scientists, and shit gets real.

So we all remember this scene yes?

So I was listening to my psychology lecture today (and it turns out that YOUR PUPILS ARE ACTUALLY JUST HOLES IN YOUR EYES), anyway and it turns out that the inside of your eyeball is this fluid, jelly-like stuff but otherwise its pretty hollow (except for some wirey nervy stuff) soooooo

Inuyasha’s Eye (I guess his human one to be exact):

I came up with this. Because the legendary Inu no Taisho is a goddamn science nerd in his free time, he somehow managed to insert a lil pearl in his baby son’s eye (somehow without Izayoi noticing, I imagine) before many of the nerves in there are formed and therefore …

That is why Inuyasha went momentarily blind in one eye when Sesshomaru removed the pearl with his lightning-fast fingers, because his nerves probably grew around the pearl when as he got older.

I dunno, it just interested me and its all speculation really, not facts.

But also while I was googling images for this I found this amazing piece of trash:

and that made my rainy, cold day 10x happier (plus I got a starbucks coffee)

I dunno guys. Maybe I should make an InuyashaScienceBlog

Not This Time Pt. 2

Summary: After a blowout fight, Billy has to find a way to make things right with his girl.

Authors Note: This is long. Very long… Like… five pages long. I was listening to The Last Time by Taylor Swift when I wrote this… Now that I’m reading it back, I don’t really see how much the song actually influenced the way I wrote it, but it’s a good song period. So listen to it. Even if you don’t like Taylor Swift, you’ll like this song. 

I have decided that I’m going to take requests! I really have a hard time writing them, though! Maybe I’ll reblog some prompts and you can send them in. 

Thanks for the love on the first part of this! I love you guys! All feedback is appreciated (even if you hated it)

REQUESTS ARE OPEN

(Part 1 HERE)

I HAVE BEEN SO PRODUCTIVE LATELY AND I HALF-STOPPED COMPLAINING ABOUT PHYSICS AND IT’S GETTING EASIER SO I GUESS THAT’S GOOD

anyways I’m slowly stressing out about the three midterms I have coming up in a week hahah omg IM TERRIFIED 

every friday a cafe serves a rice bowl (shrimp sushi bowl at rendevous) and it’s a friday staple for me nomnom

I called my parents yesterday and my dad said I look good!! He said I must be eating well HAHAH
