i only eat gas station dick pills and drink arnold palmer and i am incredibly effective and intelligent to the point that i have telekinetic abilities (level 3) i have recently been given access to atlantis tetrahedron power crystals by the us government. come fuck with me.
absolutely wild for me to think that, if someone had told me 5 years ago that by 2020 both It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia AND Supernatural would have an out gay character that is part of the main cast, whose coming out was done so greatly in part because of fan drive, and then you asked me to guess which one of them would handle the coming out in the most homophobic way possible and which would handle it with the respect the character and the audience deserve…….i’d slap you

Please don’t speak this into existence, I don’t think I could handle it
finding out that almost all other animals don’t have periods like we do and instead simply reabsorb the egg back into their uterine lining to reuse the nutrients is like finding out the rest of the class has been taking WILDLY easier tests than you for the whole semester
like, hey, cat why don’t you have to use your Cat Dollars to invest in tampons? And cat is just like: fuck that noise, my body is OPTIMAL for not being made of inconvenient nonsense, sucks to be you
humans: hey, bleeding every month is actually really cumbersome and I lose both valuable nutrients AND fluids I need for survival? What the fuck is up?
evolution: yes, alright, but have you considered this about it? *cartoon blow horn noise*
Human bodies suck for many reasons including but not limited to:
- Bad backs
- Permanent breasts that do not leave once baby is weaned
- Dangerously large, unprotected, and non retractable male reproductive systems
- Huge brain takes up way too much energy gotta eat more sleep less
- Baby brain bigger than hips guess birth is life threatening now
- Takes like 25 years for big brain to even finish maturing
•Teeth are critical to living, yet not designed to last more than a few years without constant intervention and upkeep, and don’t grow back if this is not accomplished. Also, losing your teeth means the bones in your ear will shift, and your hearing will worsen.
•Breathing, eating, communication all from the same pathway, major choking hazard. Give me a dolphin style breathing tube.
•Most pleasurable nerve endings on the body locating on the filthiest parts of you, guarenteed spread of bacteria.
•knees and shoulders have almost zero capability to heal correctly, once they break, they’re basically broken forever without massive outside influence.
Billi speaks. (via billispeaks)
billi want food
billi get food later?
billi want food!
billi want drugs.
okay but this method of teaching dogs and cats a way of communication is frankly astounding. Watch more of billie’s videos and Hunger4Words (the creator of this sytem) and it’s pretty stunning. yes, there’s a lot of wishful thinking because cats and dogs don’t have quite as complex brains when it comes to language, but the fact remains these animals are a rudimentary form of bilingual. they have their own language (body/scents/vocal) and now they’ve learned to use a very basic form of our language. i’ve seen so many people, linguists even, dismiss that this is just more complex reward association but i mean. dogs have been with us for about 32 thousand years. they’ve evolved alongside us for that long. they are honed in on us. hell, even cats have been our close companions for at least 8 thousand years. that is more than enough time for either one of them to grasp the very basic concepts of our words (especially considering cats literally talk/meow because we talk. that is not a normal thing they do when wild/feral).
so yeah. this is fucking cool.
Once you’ve seen their videos (and Bunny’s as well) it becomes impossible to call it a complex reward association thing. They stop rewarding the animals at a certain point. It just becomes a means of communication. Unless answering a dog’s question qualifies as a reward but then at that point I think we’ve stopped dismissing this system and instead revealed that human language is just a complex reward association system.
YES THANK YOU. I’ve been obsessing over animals participating in this experiment for months and none of my friends are as interested in it as me, or they want to dismiss it as wishful thinking.
But even if you want to think of it as an action-reward system, I feel like there are enough videos that evidence that it’s not just about that to the animals involved, which — yeah, okay, wishful thinking, BUT! Billi’s owner posted a TikTok recently where she asks Billi what she wants — a question Billi comprehends — and Billi just responds “Happy Billi”.
Also, I’m fascinated with the fact that three of the dogs who are using AAC to communicate have demonstrated an understanding of water in the abstract. Typically, a handler will model the word “water” with water in the bowl. I remember the first time I saw that Christina Hunger video where Stella accidentally broke her “beach” button — it wasn’t immediately able to be fixed, so the spot on the board remained vacant. Stella strung together the words “help water outside” after looking at the place where the “beach” button should be. Up until then, for me, it was just kind of a neat thing.
Then Bunny displayed several uses water in the abstract. When her owner declined to take her to the beach, Bunny tried to get around the no by asking instead “please water walk”. (Can’t find this video right now though I promise I tried.)
She also responded to high tide flowing beneath their house by saying “water sound”, and later the same night when it rained, “water outside”.
There’s also Polly on TikTok, who has used “water” and “play” while outside, presumably to get some hose or pool time in. She also strung together the words “water treat,” resulting in a homemade pupsicle.
It’s just neat to me that they recognize water as water in different states (ice, the ocean, in a bowl, rain) enough to use it to indicate things they want or hear or see! I think Bunny also called a baby seal a “water hippo” at one point (because she has a button for her squeaky gray hippo toy). Like, Bunny has pretty much figured out times of day and is now trying to figure out “yesterday” in relation to “today” and “tomorrow”. How do you model “yesterday” to a dog??? She’s also self-reported injuries to her paw three times — two of those were barbed foxtails embedded between her toes that her owner didn’t know about!
Definitely check out the other participants if you’re interested! Bunny has learned the most words so far, probably, but Billi has a lot, too.
The difference between a bisexual person and a pansexual person is that a bi person identifies as bi and a pan person identifies as pan and you don’t get to fucking tell them that their understanding of their own sexuality is wrong
Knew it wouldn’t take too long for folks to start clowning. Pansexuality is not biphobic. Bisexuality is not panphobic. Neither is more woke, neither is inherently more inclusive, neither is inherently fucking transphobic. Bi/pan solidarity is it, y'all.
#bisexuality and pansexuality are functionally synonyms #in that there is no gender identity you can point at and say #a pansexual would date them but a bisexual would not #they are functionally the exact same #but the distinction matters to the people choosing their identifier #and that’s okay (via @wittywallflower)
Theoretically I don’t object to the idea of Harley Quinn moving away from The Joker’s influence and having that reflected in her costume, but that’s… not what her character designers have done. They’ve dropped the clown theme for a design based on a skimpy cheerleading uniform in the same colors as her traditional costume. If Harley’s costume change is supposed to reflect a new idependence, it shouldn’t be based on her old costume at all and should be something new and cool to represent self-reinvention, not just “we didn’t think the clown theme was sexy enough to sell to a modern audience”.
HOWEVER. You know what would be fun? If Harley decided to out-clown the Joker and steal his theme from him. Commit to the act in a way he never could and actually take up classes on clowning and physical comedy. Become Dr. Harley Quinn, the DCU’s leading expert on being a clown. When people think “the clown from Gotham” they don’t think of The Joker at all. That would be sweet, sweet revenge that I would love to read.
“The clown from Gotham.” “Which one?” “The one who knows what she’s doing.”
“It’s that clown again.” “I thought he was in Metropolis this week?” “Clown as in clown, not clown as in embarrassment to humanity.” “Oh, the doctor.”
(nodding) Doctor Clown.
honestly as homestucks, we did Rose Lalonde dirty by never reading her as the Gamer Girl she was. playing a game on launch day despite overwhelming evidence that it’s a Bad Idea? writing a game walkthrough and publishing it to the multiverse? pushing the limits of the game in almost every way?
if rose were 13 in the year of our lord 2018, you cannot look me in the eyes and tell me she would not be a game youtuber.
ya but from how she fucked the game she clearly doesent just do letsplays or walkthroughs she would mainly be known for the “fuck the game up” style videos like monster factory or the half an a press
- Sburb - Null Session Speedrun
- 24 hours (with scratch)
- Green Sun+Jack Noir Glitch

She’s the game breaking queen.
Also tell me this doesn’t sound like the opening of a Monster Factory video
