down-this-endless-road said: good luck! <3

Thanks! My boyfriend says he’s making me take at least 1 day of the weekend at home, so we’ll see what happens. :P

Well this is probably my last weekend for the next 4 months or so.

I’m TAing 3 lab sections so in order to do enough research I’ll probably have to come in on Saturday and Sunday. :\ Here’s hoping I don’t go insane! :D

what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.


I just love that this post happened to find the ONE HUMAN ON THE INTERNET who had the answer to this question

Instead of calling it the natural and organic community let’s call it the anti-science panic merchant community.

Natural =/= safe and good, synthetic =/= dangerous and bad.

'Chemical free' is a fictional state.

Oxygen is carcinogenic.

Here’s the thing:

calleo:

Yes, you’re allowed to make rape/racist/dirty/sexist/whatever-ist-you-choose jokes.

Yes, you’re allowed to think it’s funny and/or edgy.

Yes, you’re allowed to say, “LOL That’s just his/her/my edgy personality!”

Yes, if you’re in the US and other various countries (but, let’s face it, it’s usually US citizens that bring it up), you have that whole freedom of speech thing.

What you’re forgetting is that the whole freedom of speech thing doesn’t get you a free pass to never hear things you don’t like or things that disagree with your view/opinion; you’re thinking of an echo chamber, and those are unhealthy.


It doesn’t mean you’re free from  hearing other peoples’ opinions on your jokes, ‘sense of humor’, edginess, or overall personality.


It doesn’t mean you’re free from other people disagreeing and telling you they think your opinion is shitty and wrong.


It doesn’t mean that people telling you that are ‘bullying’ you.


It doesn’t mean that people are telling you that you can’t find *insert subject* here a good topic for jokes.

It doesn’t mean people are trying to ‘force you to change your opinion’.


It doesn’t mean people are ‘spreading rumors.’


It doesn’t mean people are ‘causing drama’.

It doesn’t mean that you’re ‘being silenced’.

It doesn’t mean you can pull, “LOL don’t like it, don’t read!” if someone points out that you’ve done/said something gross.


It doesn’t mean you have the right to say whatever you want consequence free.


That’s not—how it works, did you legitimately fail middle school level social studies?

Important advice from Stephen King. ALWAYS pay attention to writing advice from Stephen King. 

Now THIS is something I needed to hear.

Oh man I need to tape this on the cover of my drawing pad so bad.

I&#8217;m not a fiction writer but I&#8217;m going to try to apply this to my research project, because right now it feels like I&#8217;ve done complete shit for work. x.x
