THOU = “YOU” WHEN YOU’RE FUCKING DOING SOMETHING.

THEE = “YOU” WHEN YOU’RE HAVING SOMETHING FUCKING DONE TO YOU.

THY = “YOUR” AND “YOURS” WHEN THE THING YOU OWN BEGINS WITH A FUCKING CONSONANT.

THINE = “YOUR” AND “YOURS” WHEN THE THING YOU OWN BEGINS WITH A FUCKING VOWEL.

IF YOU’RE GOING TO MAKE SHITTY EARLY MODERN ENGLISH TEXT POSTS, DO IT RIGHT.

Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

I just got Scrivener. I live there now.

All hail Scrivener. Best writing program ever. EVER!

It makes me want to write and write and write all the time for ever. 


since Republicans took control of the House in 2011, Congress has appropriated no money for high-speed rail.

You don’t test a gentle person the way that you don’t steep tea for too long. Submerge me and I will imbue, and what was sweet will be bitter. I will be strong on your tongue and unpleasant to the taste, and you’ll regret drowning me in your guile.

My gentleness is not for your taking.

'hey, who can give me any science fiction recommendations?'

[dozens of hands go up]

'in which women do things'

Elizabeth Bear Elizabeth Bear Elizabethhhhhh Bearrrrrr

okay she wrote a LOT of stuff. Any specific recommendations?

Doomsday Book by Connie Willis, Ash: A secret History by Mary Gentle (which is half sci-fi, half fantasy).
I would also add The Inheritance Trilogy and the Dreamblood Cycle by N.K. Jemisin. All of her books take place in worlds full of women, queer folk, and POC who have agency and do things and are, you know, believably real human beings.

“According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs, and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate beings condemning them to spend their lives in search for their other halves.”

~Plato’s The Symposium.

How many times will I reblog this? “Always.”

We did it at school. The myth also says that the pairings could be male/female, male/male or female/female (just sayin’)

Surprisingly, perfectionists are often procrastinators, as they can tend to think “I don’t have the right skills or resources to do this perfectly now, so I won’t do it at all.”

this is an important thing to remember.

This is the most relatable post I’ve ever seen.

Holy shit this is me
