Superb Fruit Dove(Steve Wilson - need to up my game)
He is superb
Okay who is this fucker and what did he do?
So you know when you’re out walking in the street and all of a sudden you can just tell that you’ve stepped in chewing gum, because your shoe feels oddly sticky, but there’s nowhere for you to wipe the gum off, so you have to wait until you get home and then you pull off your shoe and there’s just this huge, amorphous blob of shit-and-saliva coated gum, and it clings to all the grooves in the tread of your shoe and it takes half a roll of toilet paper to get it off, and you just wish you were never born? That’s Dominic Cummings.
To sum up why I want him to fuck himself with something hard and sandpapery:
So, tl;dr, he’s Typhoid Mary who knows all of Boris Johnson’s darkest secrets and isn’t afraid to use them.
We’re only finding out recently that a lot of animals have colors and patterns that we cannot see because they’re outside of our visual range. It calls to attention how much of the world we can’t experience because our senses are limited.
When we shine UV lights on them, they glow pink or blue, but these are the colors that we CAN see…. they could be a bunch of different colors, which we SEE as all pink.
It’s also interesting to consider that most of these animals are not aware of having glowing patches on their bodies…. isn’t it also possible that we have skin or hair patterns that were not aware of?
(There is actually some research out there to support the idea that our own skin fluoresces as well and that there are gender differences in the pattern and glow.)

Humans do have invisible stripes! They’re called Blaschko’s Lines, formed as skin cells divide at the embryonic stage. Normally we can’t see them at all, though certain skin conditions follow those same lines.
Apparently this is roughly what we’d look like, if our eyes could see in a different spectrum:
Dunno about you, but I want to use this in a story someday. Aliens can see our stripes and we can’t! Magical transformations follow Blaschko’s Lines! A subtle sign of lycanthropy is darker hair there! Wizards are bald with that cool spiral on their heads!
Speculative fiction is so much more fun when you can speculate about something strange but true.
THIS??? IS THE COOLEST???? SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY EVER??????????? AAAAAAAA THAT IS FLIPPING AWESOME!!!!!
(és többé-kevésbé értem is :)
üveggolyó két fémközé fogva, felmelegíti, vizet csöppen rá, majd ráküld néhány kilovoltot.
az üveg alapvetően szigetelő, a melegítés a két fém között potenciákülönbséget hoz létre, a víz (korlátozottan) vezető.
mivel a két fém között potenciálkülönbség van, amikor ráküldi a feszültséget, az a vízen keresztül egyenlítődik ki.
(ha jól okoskodok…)
From google translate, from Hungarian, an explanation: a glass ball, warming it up, dripping water on it, and sending it a few kilovolts. the glass is essentially insulating, the heating creates a potential difference between the two metals, the water is (limited) conductive. since there is a potential difference between the two metals, when it sends a voltage, it is equalized through the water. (if I’m smart …)
Just wanted to spread this twitter thread around as much as possible. It frustrates me to no end that Tiger King did all this weird Carole Baskin character assassination trying to make her look like she’s just as bad as Joe and Doc without ever properly explaining what Carole is doing differently and why it matters.
Attention non-artists who commission artists: don’t fuckin do this???
Actually had someone do this to me too. Was doing a art stream, it took me over 2 hours to do his inked commission, he got a refund cause ‘it took too long’ that he figured I wasn’t going to do it after I gave him the file.
Don’t do this. Do not.
I’ve had this happen to me with a $350 comic :/ I had already finished it, it was full color, 6 panels and had a full bg in every panel. I was lucky in that I didn’t spend him money yet, but it left me without funds. I’ve also had the above happen to me as well.
Don’t do this shit to artists. We’re people too. Drawing for you is more than a hobby. It’s a job.
Use Paypal Invoices.
I cannot stress this enough. That shit helps A LOT when it comes down to Paypal refunds/disputes.
There’s a description box that let’s you put in what the product is/how long it’ll take/yadda yadda, and then there’s another little memo box that only you and paypal can see where you can say it’s a digital commission and doesn’t require shipping (So Donald Mcfuck can’t say that they never got their commission).
And there’s also a box for your Terms & Conditions where you can say, if you have any conflicts/want a refund - email me, or you can actually tell the user that this is a digital commission and they won’t be getting a hard copy of it.
ARTISTS. PLEASE USE PAYPAL INVOICES. it will SAVE you.
And to: the people who do this to artists – Fuck you. It’s okay if you change your mind and want a refund. But freaking TALK to us and let us know what’s going on. Let us WORK with you.
ALSO A HUGE TIP: Invoices paid will automatically set up a shipping notice which, if not fulfilled, can land you in SERIOUS hot water with PayPal. Since a lot of artists don’t print and ship the commissions, this is a huge problem.
However! Totally manageable. Just go to your PayPal, scroll down to find Seller Preferences
>> Shipping Preferences
>> Display Ship Button. Make sure all the boxes are unchecked. Then you’re all set!
As a big supporter of artists, don’t you ever fucking dare fuck over an artist like that. Like don’t. And if they take their time to do a good job, don’t shit all over them for it! Don’t be a fucking ass hole. Just don’t. These people put a LOT of work and time and effort into their artwork. Just don’t be that guy. Often times these artists aren’t even getting what they deserve in compensation.
I am very grateful my customers have been good to me, but I’m spreading the word.
As a new artist, I’m very grateful for this post. Never knew this. Thank you.
@saferion - I know you create some artwork/photo edits. I’m not sure if you knew about this or not but I figured I’d pass it along just in case.
Thank you for mentioning and warning! PayPal is a big hole of pitfalls, it’s always good to be aware of these kind of things!
IMPORTANT ADVICE FOR ARTISTS AND CUSTOMERS.
As much as I hate seeing someone’s life getting upended because someone else wanted to corner a market, I kind of hope that this actually goes to court and gets ruled on. It will no doubt save other authors a lot of grief over the years to have this settled. And, given that this is a pummel that people have used even against not for profit fanfiction, I think that every fanficcer should welcome that.
Things I really never expected nor needed to see: a full paragraph about knotting in the New York Times
Same article but you don’t need to log into anything to read it.
Also, for fuck’s sake here’s a TL:DR - Author writes fanfic with Omegaverse tropes. Tries turning trope into original fic to sell. Does so and is popular. Author finds out there’s another writer out there publishing original fic with classic Omegaverse tropes, too. Becomes outraged. Accuses new author of infringement and theft. Gets new authors work taken down.
Doesn’t sound a whole lot different than when a Big Name in fandom gets possessive only this time lawyers and a good sum of money are involved.
People really need to learn how to play well with others.
This made me cackle loudly but it still can’t beat the time in a cricket match there was a batsman whose surname was Holding and a bowler whose surname was Willie and the commentator said “the batsman’s Holding, the bowler’s Willie” and then promptly realised what he’d said and fuckin died laughing
…I normally treat my tarot decks like portable art that gives my hands something to fidget with more than anything else, but I feel like when I do two single-card draws from two different decks in one day and they both spit out Wheel of Fortune at me, that the universe might be trying to tell me something >.>

I need to you know this.
That man, the priest in that photo, is my uncle tim.
After all the yelling I did
about “why don’t angels just carry supersoakers full of holy water?”
and he turns up like this in the news
and then shows up on my dashboard.
That’s my parents church!!!! I’m the yellow car in the crop of pictures online. And these are some cool pics from inside the car that my mom took. Fr Tim was determined to soak me in the drivers seat, but got my mom drenched instead.
Note that in the top pic the water pistol is green and in the bottom ones is blue :).
He even has multiple Holy Water Pistols! 👀😊

I stumbled across a scene that I had legit forgotten in RotK and it actually made me laugh out loud (not just that mild “lol” that’s not a real laugh and we all know it).
So after the battle of Pellenor Fields Aragorn is going around healing people and being all stealthy right? And he’s gotta heal Merry, who is a sweet cinnamon roll and when he wakes up only really cares about 1) food and 2) Theoden. Aragorn tells Merry to have a smoke and remember Theoden in true hobbit fashion, to which Merry replies:
And Aragorn is having NONE OF THIS. EXCUSE U MR. HOBBIT I did not ride under a damn mountain full of dead people to bring u some damn pipe tobacco! !!! !
Merry is rightfully taken aback by this, and gives a pretty heartfelt apology. Aragorn just pretty much responds with the 😘 emoji and leaves, probably to be dramatic elsewhere
And the punchline? Aragorn could see the damn bag of pipeweed the whole time. He could have reached over and handed it to Merry with no fuss. But no, King of Sass over here had to make a big deal out of it omg
“My dear ass”
THIS IS LEGENDARY I LITERALLY DON’T REMEMBER THIS AT ALL
First time I read this scene, not only did I burst out laughing in my middle school cafeteria, it was that weird half-choked sob-laugh, because Merry’s one of my favorites and I had been seriously worried. (”Are you going to bury me?” JESUS)
It’s even funnier when you know that the bit about the herb-master was him mercilessly roasting the guy from a mere 5 pages ago when Aragorn was trying to get his hands on the one fucking plant so he can get on with saving Faramir’s life, FFS
Indeed. I can’t remember the last time I actually had to look into a mirror just to FIND the piercing lmao
have any tips for growing cherry tomatoes from seed?
