the fuck is this
Saint Young Men. The whimsical tale of Jesus and Buddha sharing an apartment. I’m not kidding.
"If this was an RPG there’d definitely be something happening with that wall."
I make a lot of goofy drawings of “hunks” because I’ve always found the word and its accompanying images pretty fun to play around with, but Collector’s Weekly has a pretty interesting article about the cultural history of hunks/muscle men that you might like to read.
Wow that only took them 700 or so episodes to learn to do.
Team Rocket finally found their swag

Can we just appreciate the way Meowth avoids that attack?

like they’ve been practicing this for months and they’ve finally got it right
Is it bad that i actually happy for them?
that’s almost too cruel
I had to do this once with Privateer II: The Darkening. It gained a bit when he said “I bet you didn’t play it through, I bet somebody just told you how…” and I was able to smile gently and say “God, possibly, since I wrote the game.” And plainly the Deity was with me that day, as I happened to be carrying docs from my UK agent (who’d done the deal) that showed not only that I was the writer, but the five-figure sum I had been paid. …It was a happy day for me. Not so much for him. I’d never had a referent for the word “slink” for a full grown male before. As in “slink away in utter dejection.” I smiled for at least three days without stopping. And am smiling now… I had completely forgotten about this.
Reblogging because “I beat the game” is fantastic, but “I wrote the damn thing” is even better.
This is amazing

Okay, who’s ready to have their mind BLOWN?!
Check out this absolutely stunning Blue Cloud Forest Millipede (Pararhachistes potosinus) found only in the remote high altitude cloud forests of Mexico. The bright blue coloration warns predators about its ability to produce toxic secretions.

Okay but I’d never even heard of this bird before. Look at how GORGEOUS this bird is!
The upper house of French Parliament voted in favor of banning child beauty pageants (for contestants under 16) as part of a larger bill on women’s rights. The proposal is that anyone found organizing a child beauty pageant would face prison charges and fines of up to $40,000.
Legislators argue that these child pageants negatively influence girls’ body image and sense of self-worth. The hypersexualization of children has sparked controversy in French media before, after a 10-year old was dressed provocatively in a 2010 Vogue spread sparking a dialogue about this very issue.
Similarly, there has been discussion of putting a health warning on heavily photoshopped images in a campaign against eating disorders.
Will the initiatives taken in France start a ripple effect in other countries? Should it be illegal or is this part of freedom of expression?
Meanwhile, The American “glitz” or child pageant industry, including famed “Honey Boo Boo,” is a 5 Billion dollar industry.
What a world.

I have begun Full-Shave November.
This is fucking awful. HOW DO YOU DO THIS????
I was in the shower shaving for like… 45 minutes, and I STILL had to forgo shaving one of my legs because I was concerned I was running late for lunch (it turns out I wasn’t, but whatever).
I also ruined my razor, because I didn’t think to trim any of my hair first, but that’s okay.
Also look at all that fucking hair. There’s so much of it. I had no idea I had that much hair on me.
Tomorrow I will shave my left leg and run clean-up on basically everywhere else (it’s pretty patchy).
Aren’t you supposed to grow a mustache? what the fuck is full shave november.
The opposite of No Shave November. Lots of women get flak for participating in No Shave November and letting their body hair grow out (I can’t find the post with a bunch of screencapped tweets about it, but this is the next best thing), but the vast majority of guys (myself included) have absolutely no idea what a pain feeling like you have to shave your body hair is like. So, for the entirety of the month, I will be shaving my legs, chest, and armpits on a regular basis (as well as my usual regimen of shaving my face).
This idea. I like it. Another.
^that last comment.
I shaved my legs ONCE for a halloween costume.
There was soooo much blood.
totalitarian dystopian future lit is like “what if the government got so powerful that all the bad stuff that’s already happening ALSO HAPPENED TO WHITE PEOPLE?”
