People have written a lot of touchy-feely pieces on this subject but I thought I’d get right to the heart of the matter
So, the tf_rare_pairing comm on Livejournal (mirrored here and fully functional as well on DW) is having a fic lottery. Where you write fic for prompts and get tickets that you can drop to win prizes.
Prizes. I am like -342343 to my save vs. prizes. And I will be stuffing a few of those prize buckets, k thnx. :D
I might have already written a fic. >_>
Also now my DW posts are being automatically mirrored to Tumblr, via the magic of IFTTT. So, there shall be fic posted to here now. Enjoy!
Title: Disciplinary Action
Warnings: …robot swearing?
Characters: Ironhide, Sideswipe
Prompt: Sideswipe/Ironhide (Bayverse) - “You’re gorgeous when you’re angry”
Notes: Set very pre-movies.
Sideswipe did not sneak well. It wasn’t in his nature. Also, trying to sneak in a cargo bay filled with milling troops fresh off the battlefield was pretty impossible. ( Read more… )
Holy shit, Lifehackable posted something useful.
Except Rohypnol isn’t salty - GHB and other date rape drugs are kinda salty, but Rohypnol isn’t
Rohypnol is BITTER. If your drink is saltier, it’s GHB, if it’s bitter it’s Rohypnol.
Either way, keep safe, friends.
^^^thanks for the clarification
When I was 17 my appendix ruptured because I thought I was just having period cramps and didn’t go to the hospital so don’t tell me PMS symptoms are no big deal
this actually happened to me during my math final and i didn’t think anything of it and when i was later admitted to the hospital my math prof was asking me ‘you didn’t have to take the final! why didn’t you tell me it hurt?!?!’ and i told him i’ve had cramps worse.
he gave me 100
This is actually an extremely common occurrence simply because in sex ed they don’t teach you how to tell the difference between menstrual cramps and other more serious pains. The way to tell the difference between cramps and appendicitis is that while menstrual cramps are generalized toward the middle of the stomach below the belly button, pain from a swollen or burst appendix will start in the middle of the stomach and relocate to only the lower right side, even lower than menstrual cramps, and is a very localized pain. It also comes on extremely suddenly and will worsen over time or when you make a sudden movement, like a cough or a sneeze.
Basically, if you’re feeling any sort of pain, even if it’s menstrual cramps, don’t hesitate to tell the school nurse or a parent, or if you’re out of school and home even make a doctor’s appointment. Chances are if your cramps are that bad there’s something they can do to improve that as well.
I am boosting the shit out of that reply, because I am twenty-fucking-five years old and did not know how to tell the two pains apart
Bolding mine. Impt stuff, yo
MIT’s Tangible Media is coming along nicely,
"Almost like a table of living clay, the inFORM is a surface that three-dimensionally changes shape, allowing users to not only interact with digital content in meatspace, but even hold hands with a person hundreds of miles away. And that’s only the beginning."
O_O Science has gone too far and become magic.
Stick-Gods ~ Bigger Barque
*facepalm* Set…. Set. Aren’t you supposed to be protecting that barque? ”Protector of Ra” and all that? Where is your spear? Did you…? You lost your spear, didn’t you? Did you go drinking with Hathor again? Was there some sort of wager?
…yes, I think that people will notice. Yes, even if it’s cloudy.
So, been posting ridiculously old fic on AO3 lately. Think I got all the fic-length things now. Likely I’ll make Transformers and non-Transformers drabble collections, as well.
Most of the ones I posted were ancient old anime/manga/game fandoms, but, in case anyone’s interested? Please mind the warnings at the top of each, as some of these are explicit or possibly triggery.
MARVEL ANNOUNCES NEW FEMALE THOR FROM JASON AARON AND RUSSELL DAUTERMAN ON THE VIEW
Marvel chose daytime talk show The View as the venue to reveal its latest female-led solo title; a new Thor ongoing series from current Thor writer Jason Aaron and current Cyclops artist Russell Dauterman. If you’re wondering how Thor can be a female-led solo title, well, grab a seat chum. Thor is a lady now.
This is not the first time a son of Odin has become the old man’s daughter, but when Loki spent time as a woman it was because he stole the body of the warrior Sif, and as a shape-shifting trickster he can probably do it whenever he wants. Not so Thor; Marvel says that this is “a brand new female hero” rather than the old Thor after a magical (or even non-magical) transformation.
my mom just came to me and ranted about how everyone is making this facebook status that says, “raising teenagers is like nailing jello to a tree”. she was so baffled by this because she said, “you were pretty easy to raise as teenagers. all…
British researchers have created the ‘new black’ of the science world - and it is being dubbed super black.
The material absorbs all but 0.035 per cent of light, a new world record, and is so dark the human eye struggles to discern its shape and dimension, giving the appearance of a black hole.
Named Vantablack, or super black, it also conducts heat seven and half times more effectively than copper, and is ten times stronger than steel.
It is created by Surrey NanoSystems using carbon nanotubes, which are 10,000 thinner than human hair and so miniscule that light cannot get in but can pass into the gaps in between.
What really blew my mind though is when I read the article and it said that not only is it grown on aluminium foil, but the foil underneath is crinkled and so is the black material and you can’t see the crinkles…
I REQUIRE A DRESS. THEY’RE IN SURREY, I CAN SHOW UP FOR MEASUREMENTS IN AN HOUR.
Christ, it looks like a hole in space. Awesome, science, awesome.
