the last couple of days were really cold at my place, which made me think about harsh winters in Vitaspes and that one time when the kids had a snowball fight - John and Jade teamed up against Dave and Rose. this turned out to be quite unfair, since John and Jade’s powers allowed them to levitate the snowballs and throw them like bombs, while Dave and Rose’s powers were simply inapplicable

dave could create a snow ball throwing army itd be hilarious

And Rose could dodge literally every snowball

I agree that it’s an unfair matchup I just disagree in which direction


dave and rose would wipe the floor with them

now if you wanted to make it interesting try pairing up rose/jade vs dave/john, or even jade/dave vs rose/john

Michele Carragher, the head embroider on Game of Thrones, made this awesome tutorial to show how she created the dragonscale fabric that appears on several of Daenarys’ costumes in S3 and S4.

Ms. Carragher says that the dragonscale fabric was created because “In season 3 the Costume Designer Michele Clapton wanted a Dragonscale like textured embroidery that starts to emerge on three of Daenery’s costumes, which becomes heavier and more pronounced, growing and evolving as the season progresses” (Carragher).

In stages 9-11 of the tutorial we see how the textile evolves from lightly to heavily embellished. This progression is meant to illustrate Daenarys’ personal growth and the growth of her dragons (source).

Here’s a link to Ms. Carragher’s website.


Don’t care about Game of Thrones but that shit is cool

Somewhere on the Alternian internet is a semi-illicit website called BucketList. Its purpose is facilitating last-minute drone season hookups. However, probably about 40% of the users are actually seeking murder victims, not concupiscent partners, so user beware. And it’s anonymous (because who’d want this shame remembered forever), and everyone lies about their blood color even though there’s no way to maintain the lie after meeting in person.

There are a lot of urban legends about things happening at BucketList meetups.

this needs to be a fic somehow :3333

The Mystical World Of Mushrooms Captured In Photos

Most people consider mushrooms to be the small, ugly cousins of the plant kingdom, but theirs is  surprisingly beautiful and wonderful world waiting to be explored. These beautiful mushrooms, captured by enthusiastic nature photographers, are a far cry from the ones you find in the woods or your local grocery store.

Most mushrooms, as we know them, are actually just the reproductive structure of the fungus they belong to – their fungal networks expand far further underground, and some fungi don’t even sprout the sort of mushrooms that we’re used to seeing. In fact, depending on your definition of “organism,” the largest living organism in the world is a fungus – there’s a honey mushroom colony in Oregon that occupies about 2,000 acres of land!

Nature is amazing.
