the special is just going to be an hour-and-a-half long deduction, with sherlock explaining ALL THE THINGS right there on the tarmac

every now and then we’ll cut back to john and mary, who tried to pay attention for the first half hour but then got really hungry and started to raid the plane for snacks

"go on, sherlock, we’re still listening"

"do they have any more of those little packets of peanuts?"

DISCLAIMER: THE GIFS ARE NOT MINE! They’re unbreakable’s who took the time to make this awesome gifset

So the original post is going around with spn-rants’ perfect meta attached and this gave me the idea to try to switch Dean’s reactions just for the shits and giggles.

Cas is canonically more than “just a friend” for Dean. He’s also canonically family. Finally, in that context, he’s either a platonic brother figure or a romantic interest/lover figure, but it’s not (yet) confirmed which one. So here you have Dean reacting to a platonic sister figure, Charlie, the way he reacted when Cas came out of the bathroom.

My verdict is: BITCH PLEASE. Enjoy the mindfuck. (Warning: unless you ship Charlean… Dearlie…? romantically, this gifset will probably feel very wrong)

The fact is that no one would doubt there’s more to Dean and Cas’ relationship if Cas were a woman, and that makes me half sad, half Hulk-angry.

"In logic, proof by contradiction is a form of proof, and more specifically a form of indirect proof, that establishes the truth or validity of a proposition by showing that the proposition’s being false would imply a contradiction. Proof by contradiction is also known as indirect proof, apagogical argument, proof by assuming the opposite, and reductio ad impossibilem. It is a particular kind of the more general form of argument known as reductio ad absurdum.” [also sprach Wiki]

This a Moonmelon, scientifically knows as asidus. This fruit grows in some parts of Japan, and is known for its vibrant blue color. What you probably don’t know about this fruit is that it can switch flavors after you eat it. Everything sour will taste sweet, everything salty will taste bitter, and it gives water a strong orange-like taste. It’s also very expensive…costing about ¥16000 JPY (which is about 200 dollars).

or you know this could be photoshopped

but idk
you tell me


this is alexandrias melon (wow)
it never grows seeds but it can still produce other melons (its magic)
it is grown deep in the jungles of peru and can prevent you from aging well into the hundreds
it is known by the natives there as k’uhul ajaw cacao shi-jiiy.
its really strange how all of these pictures look exactly the same because everything on the internet is true


This is the Peppermeloni. (seriously gosh just look at that sexy mother fucker) Its scientific name is Tumblrous Pepperonus.
The only known specimen is in a pot in David Karps treasure dungeon. It is a tradition that a single slice is given to every tumblr blog that reaches 500,000 followers.
It has the remarkable property of being as healthy as watermelon but tasting like cheesy pepperoni pizza.
This planet is really just so amazing guys wow.


Patrickmelon
The taste of this melon will always surprise you.

I’m fucking done with this site


Hoo hoo! This is an Ice Melon, found only in kingdom of Arendelle. They sell on the black market for about 300 glowing troll crystals.  They’re guaranteed to cool you down in hot summer months. Eating too many of these can result in heart freeze and turning into a popsicle.

This person is a fucking psychic

This was a popular “never gonna happen” headcanon. We thought they were writing a Sherlock who petulantly wouldn’t even go to the wedding and would be cold about the entire thing (as a manifestation of his heartbreak but that would never be stated) but they were writing the Sherlock that we were reading all along. It feelings good and absolutely goddamn heartbreaking and life-ending in equal measures.

Here’s to book seven. Here’s to the years of anticipation before it and the years of discussion in its wake. Here’s to the boy who lived and how he changed everything.

And here’s to you, if you know that “the very end” isn’t happening anytime soon.

We are book eight.

A lot of people are asking what exactly Jared and Aisha said and I am literally too angry to want to retype it all but I just tweeted about it, so here:

And that’s basically the summary of it, there was more but I was a bit distracted by rage to catch all of what was said.

I am just so angry because it shows just such disrespect and misogyny and I can’t even describe how hurtful their comments were, as a female fan, as a woman and a person who values the stories and lives of women, to see such blatant disregard and scorn for the idea of female characters, especially after Jeremy Carver’s condescending remarks earlier, and I just…

I don’t like hating people. I really don’t.

But I really hate Jared Padalecki and Aisha Tyler right now.

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.


Cool!

Sixth-Grader’s Science Fair Finding Shocks Ecologists

When 12-year-old Lauren Arrington heard about her sixth-grade science project, she knew she wanted to study lionfish. Growing up in Jupiter, Fla., she saw them in the ocean while snorkeling and fishing with her dad.
Her project showed that the lionfish can survive in nearly fresh water. The results blew away professional ecologists. The invasive species has no predators on the Florida coast, so if they were to migrate upstream in rivers, they could pose a threat to the ecosystem.
"Scientists were doing plenty of tests on them, but they just always assumed they were in the ocean," Lauren, now 13, tells NPR’s Kelly McEvers. "So I was like, ‘Well, hey guys, what about the river?’ "In the beginning, she wanted to conduct her test by placing the lionfish in cages at different points in the river, but she had to simplify the project.
"It was just a small, sixth-grade project, and I really didn’t have all the tools necessary," she says. Her dad, who has a Ph.D. in fish ecology, suggested that she put the fish in tanks instead.
Lauren then put six different lionfish in six different tanks where she could watch her subjects closely. Lauren was given a strict set of rules by the science fair organizers. The most important one: Her fish could not die.
Lionfish had been found to live in water with salt levels of 20 parts per thousand. But no one knew that they could live in water salinity below that.
One of the six lionfish was her control fish, and the rest were the experimental fish. Every night for eight days, she would lower the salinity 5 parts per thousand in the experimental tanks. On the eighth day of her experiment, she found her experimental fish were living at 6 parts per thousand. She was amazed.
Her research did not stop there. Craig Layman, an ecology professor at North Carolina State University, confirmed Lauren’s results. “He credited a sixth-grader for coming up with his idea,” Lauren says ecstatically. Layman’s findings were published this year in the science journal Environmental Biology of Fishes. Lauren is mentioned in the acknowledgments.
Lauren’s father says he talks about science with her a lot. “We’re a science bunch of dorks in our family,” he tells McEvers.

For some, it’s probably a remarkable weekend to be a fan. For others, well.

The convention thing is tricky. SDCC in particular: the big one, the biggest one, the one all the media outlets pay attention to, the one to which many of these media outlets still send clueless reporters, the type who gawk at fans and, even now, in 2014, do things like make actors read fanfiction for the purpose of mockery. It’s hard, to sit at home on your couch halfway across the world, and not feel a little left out. Such is the nature of these things. (I mean, to be honest, I don’t feel terribly left out at all, at least not the way I have in previous years. The (stupefying) effects of a hot British summer.)

I always find it funny how conventions and similar in-person fan activities make people feel like their fan-hood is in question, and, similarly, like their fan-hood is quantifiable—I suppose by that metric, it is. Are you being the best fan you can be? You must spend $X to fly across the country, $X more for the Super Special Greatest Fan Gold Level Pass, $X more for pictures in front of that screen from class picture day. All your hard-earned money, for the chance to shake the hand of a famous actor, to sit at a table with him for a few minutes, to have the actual real live moment of intimacy to compliment the endless one-sided moments of intimacy you always have in your head, when you watch the show or read the book or put the song on repeat or scroll through all those endless gifs.

I’d definitely give this a read. Elizabeth puts into words what I think a lot of people are feeling - those that feel the binary nature of fandom dynamics are pushing a lot of people out.

I know I tend to get riled up and argue when I feel like something is truly harmful, and I realize that’s a not what everyone needs, or wants to see in fandom. I’ve been trying to cut that back, because I know there are friends of mine that struggle with seeing it, but sometimes I’ve got the spoons and a thing should be said, so I do. But there’s a lot of the above that I’ll try to keep in mind.

Oh look, somebody said the same sort of stuff as me but far, far more eloquently and less angrily. Yay!

Can’t we all just focus on collectively attacking the people who make fun of fanfic, rather than attacking each other? :)
