About

I'm a professional geek, and this is where I come for my daily doses of fandom squee, cute stuff, and social justice. I post original content elsewhere online and use this account for an alarming amount of reblogging. You have been warned.

[An image of a calico cat sitting next to a sign which reads “I don’t need feminism because it’s not food. Is it food? Where’s my food.”]

If it can’t be eaten, Osaka doesn’t care.

Confused Cats Against Feminism is a project of We Hunted the Mammoth:The New Misogyny, tracked and mocked. You should totally go there, like right now.

nubbsgalorephotos by gerry ellis from the david sheldrick wildlife trust, a nursery and orphanage for elephants in kenya’s tsavo east national park. here, fifty five keepers are charged with being around the clock parents to an elephant. the elephants, however, are the ones who chose their caretakers; it is the keepers who must ingratiate themselves to the elephants and earn their trust.

when elephants first arrive at the orphanage they are often traumatized from having witnessed the slaughter of their mothers and family by poachers. grieving can last several months, and they often lose the will to live. but as dame daphne sheldrick, founder of the orphanage, explains, a caretaker is charged with “persuading an elephant to live when it wants to die.”

approximately 35,000 elephants are killed by humans every year. with an estimated 350,000 elephants left in the whole continent of africa, they will be gone in the wild within ten years.

cbc’s the nature of things did a program on the elephants and their caretakers. you can foster an elephant with the david sheldrick wildlife trust online here. for more on the emotional lives of elephants, as well as the david sheldrick wildlife trust and other human efforts to save them, check out these posts

Clouds are weird yo.

What’s weird?  The top one opens out, and there’s rain, and the mountain has a tiered hat like Devo, and the bottom one is beaming up Kirk, Spock, and McCoy.  Do I have to explain everything?

TRIS WILL YOU KNOCK IT OFF WE KNOW LIGHTSBRIDGE EXAMS SUCK GOD

::cackles madly::  No, no, no, dear heart, you haven’t heard the news!  Tris is going under an assumed name, to get her certificate as an ordinary mage!  And Tim Gunn will be her advisor!!

Made the mistake of reading the news before bed. Am now overwhelmed and angry about absolutely everything. Certain recourse: this guy.

Nope. Nope, you will never be cool again. Your secret is blown out of the water, dude. And I love it.

  • Me: But I have about fifty books at home I haven't read, there's no reason for me to buy these.
  • My brain: Okay, but consider this: more books.

A while ago I got a message requesting something related to this tweet from ssspock (who runs the official_bucky account on Twitter)! It took me forever, but this is what I came up with! This was good fun to draw, and as you can see Bucky’s twitter account is a true blessing so you should follow it (if you aren’t already!)

P.S. don’t forget to enter my art giveaway! It ends in a week!

when i forget to log into ao3 and i have to click proceed to see an adult fic, i actually get a kick out of it. like i am an old timey queen and my bard is apologetic: “gentle lady, dicks doth touch in this next ballad. would you prefer another?” and i give him a gesture of command like, “nay, you may proceed, minstrel. bring forth the tale of dicks”
