What the Fuck Is Geedis!?
Comedian Nate Fernald came across Geedis pins and a forgotten fantasy universe while he was searching for pins related to the band The Jam.
The pin was in the likeness of a hunched brown monster with crazed green eyes, labeled simply, “Geedis.” Nate bought the pin since he was fascinated but couldn’t find any information on where this strange creature was from. He contacted the sellers who were unable to provide him with answers either.
He finally took to twitter where someone pointed him to a picture of a sheet of stickers featuring a detailed illustration of Geedis, as well as additional characters, labeled “The Land of Ta.” (bottom left)
Now that he found out where Geedis came from, he had to figure out what The Land of Ta was. After Fernald posted the stickers to his Facebook page, a couple of other sticker sheets that appeared to be from the same series turned up. One sheet is labeled “Women of Ta,” (bottom right) and features variations on the well-worn fantasy theme of absurdly-busty-female-warrior-monsters.
Small print on the sticker sheets indicate that The Land of Ta was created in the early 1980s by a company called Dennison Company, which is today known as the adhesive label company Avery-Dennison.
Taken all together, the designs and character names seem to hint at some lost or forgotten fantasy franchise. No other information can be found on this and it remains unexplained.
It has recently been found out that the artist behind Geedis is Sam Petrucci. The origin of the pins and “The Women of Ta” still remains unsolved.

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!!!!!
The adhd modes of food
1. You ate that burger so fast. You ate that burger so fucking fast and now the whole Red Robin is staring at you god what the fuck
2. You started eating like a normal person, but then you started talking or daydreaming and now the waitress is handing you the check but you’ve still got half a plate of cold fettuccine
3. You were going to go out to eat, but then you saw a video in your YouTube recommendation that drew you towards it like moth to a flame, and now it’s 10 pm and you’ve got an empty bag of tortilla chips in your hand and shame in your heart
4. Mac And Cheese
5. You got engrossed in a project, suddenly you feel like you’re going to die, or faint, or both? Oh. you’re hungry.
6. You’re hungry. But every food you can think of sounds disgusting. Time for your 15th day of lunchables for breakfast in a row.
A cute Scientist lad?

I strongly urge all of you to sign this petition demanding justice for George Floyd. It is our duty as citizens of this country to not only raise awareness in any means possible, but take action against positions of power shrouded in institutionalized racism. Join me in demanding justice from Attorney Michael Freeman–the four officers involved in Floyd’s death can not walk free.
You can find the super petition here. When you sign you can further instructions on actions you can take towards justice.
