omg they are so offended if you lick them back.
Fun fact! Dogs lick the mouths of those they consider higher in rank! So if you lick them back, they are not offended, they just don’t see themselves as higher than you and they are confused! The second dog must be a very loyal dog because he or she literally refuses to be licked back haha! I love dogs.
i started reading that expecting an angry rant and it turned out to be one of the nicest things ever.
I have reblogged this like ten times
My cat grooms me. What does that mean?
It means your cat thinks your style is wack and is trying to help
Well, that certain sums up my feelings towards Google.
Everyone gets straight and gay, so I’m leaving those out.
You are now informed.
Actually, this really clears it up for me.
can we just
not throw entire fandoms under the bus
I know fandoms get a bad rep (esp. the brony fandom/MLP Fans) but
not everybody is a manchild, shitting and squawking and being the epitome of fedorabro.
I just kinda feel like it…
I think part of the issue is that to ‘normal’ people in a fandom they stay away from the fringe parts of the fandom and thus don’t realize that it’s a big of an issue as it is. I have a friend who calls himself a brony; he just likes the show. I don’t even think he realize that there is a side of the fandom that are massive assholes.
At the same time people who are against the negative parts of the fandom (and rightly so) see it as a bigger part then it might actually be. That’s the only part they interact with so that seems like a larger portion of the community.
This is just my take on things but it seems like both sides just perceive the situation differently. Sorry to hijack this conversation but this kind of thing has been on my mind for a while.
i’m laughing so hard at how advanced technology is in asgard
the reason thor was disoriented on midgard when he got sent down was because that shit was too basic for him, he was thrown for a loop
The phrase “words to live by” gets thrown around often these days, but these are absolutely words to live by.
“A 14-year-old Indian-origin boy has come up with a unique plan that could help the U.S. save nearly $400 million a year by merely changing the font used on official documents.
Suvir Mirchandani, a student in a Pittsburgh-area middle school, claimed that if the federal government used the Garamond font exclusively it could save about $136 million per year, nearly 30 per cent less than the estimated $467 dollars it spends annually on ink.
An additional $234 million could be saved annually if state governments also implemented the change.
Mirchandani said the idea came to him when he was trying to think of ways to cut waste and save money as part of a science fair project at his school, CNN reported.
The youngster noticed that he was getting a lot more handouts than he did in elementary school and decided to figure out if he could minimize use of paper and ink.
While recycling paper was one way to save money and conserve resources, Mirchandani said little attention had been paid to the ink used on the papers.
“Ink is two times more expensive than French perfume by volume,” he said, adding that he then decided to focus his project on finding ways to cut down the cost of ink.
As part of his experiment, he collected random samples of teachers’ handouts and focused on the most commonly used characters such as e, t, a, o and r.
He noted how often each character was used in different fonts like Garamond, Times New Roman, Century Gothic and Comic Sans and then measured how much ink was used for each letter, using an ink coverage software.
From his analysis, Mirchandani figured out that by using the Garamond font with its thinner strokes, his school district could reduce its ink consumption by 24 per cent and in turn save as much as $21,000 annually.
He repeated his tests on five sample pages from documents on the Government Printing Office website and got similar results that changing the font would save money.
Mirchandani’s findings have been published in the Journal for Emerging Investigators (JEI), a publication founded by a group of Harvard students in 2011 that provides a platform for the work of middle school and high school students.
One of the journal’s founders Sarah Fankhauser said that of the nearly 200 submissions they have received since 2011, Mirchandani’s project stood out.
“We were so impressed. We really could really see the real-world application in Suvir’s paper,” Fankhauser was quoted as saying…”
Sorry but it’s not true.
