this would be very cool

Hi. Thank You for answering my ask about the research on shrooms and depression. I found it intriguing that the volunteers used computer metaphors to describe the treatment. What do you think of the theory that the brain is a computer?

I don’t think the brain is a computer. It is far more complex and to call it a computer would be a very limiting and tbf inaccurate metaphor. Theres this cool quote which explains why we have a tendency to draw paralells between the brain and various technological developments which is pretty interesting:

“Because we do not understand the brain very well we are constantly tempted to use the latest technology as a model for trying to understand it. In my childhood we were always assured that the brain was a telephone switchboard…Sherrington, the great British neuroscientist, thought the brain worked like a telegraph system. Freud often compared the brain to hydraulic and electromagnetic systems. Leibniz compared it to a mill…At present, obviously, the metaphor is the digital computer.”

So now Cas needs his own car because he's obviously gonna go look for Jack on his own. Dean finally has a chance to get Cas a decent car :) Also, on a side note, Jack isn't scheduled to reappear until mid-season finale, right? I bet it's the Wayward Daughters who help him somewhat come to terms with his powers. And please, please, tell me that collab of Cas with Lucy will somehow end with Lucy screwed over some way for a change. Sorry I'm rambling, I'm kinda drunk.

That would be very cool and yeah…I don’t know if we’ll see Jack again before 9.

So many amazing artistic things were inspired by the Sanders Sides, but one thing that I thought would be very cool for myself to indulge were makeup routines all inspired by Logic, Creativity, Anxiety, and Morality themselves!! Who better to help make this happen than the icomparable Ben J. Pierce!!!! So happy to be doing another video with this amazing dude, and I hope you enjoy the makeovers!!

About (약)

Hey everyone! I was thinking that it would be very cool idea to make a coloring book for the BTS fandom, just like the @voltroncoloringbook and the @pjocoloringbookproject!! It’d be a great way to add some positivity in the fandom as well as honor the seven incredible members!

Just like the previous two fanzines, the book will be entirely fan-made and the available for free downloading once it’s completed!

Let us know which artists you want to be featured in the book so that we can contact them! The book will consist of line art of each artist, and will not have any inappropriate fan art for younger fans (nsfw, gore, etc …). More detailed instruction will be posted soon.

What do you guys think? 

**NOTE: If there is anyone who is fluent in Korean (can read/write) who would be interested helping out in translating posts and such, please contact us!

ALSO when Ed and Oswald were talking about Oswald loving Ed and all that in the cells Ed kept saying he DIDN’T love Oswald, not that he DOESN’T. Those are two very different tenses, so…!

so i think about Soul a lot, ergo I think about the GIANT ABDOMINAL INJURY he acquired and how it would probably take at LEAST a month of intense home care and frequent check ups to make sure the paper cut that expands half his body isnt getting infected or creating scar tissue that might impede the function of some of his more important organs (cough HIS HEART cough) and how simple tasks like bending over or running would become 40% more painful and difficult to pull off

and how much more domestic help he’ll need from his partner
