omg apparently artificial banana flavoring is based on the gros michel banana which was wiped out by a banana plague in the 50s and the banana we eat today is a totally different thing called the cavendish and thats why banana candy doesnt taste like bananas do you know how lied to i feel. like there was a fucking banana apocalypse and no one told me about it until now
Bananas are mutants.
Supercowl is done!
This is one of my own designs, which I came up with whilst doodling at work. It was knit in the round, joined at each end and then steeked down the middle to open it up. The edging is a steek sandwich (tutorial here) with an I-cord join to close.
The yarn for the body of the cowl is from the lovely Penelope Craft shop in Amsterdam in their Dutch Yarns brand. The grey is Gotland lambswool and the white is Swifter (which Google tells me is a Dutch breed) and the yellow contrast is Jamiesons Shetland Spindrift in Yellow Ochre which I already had in my stash and then had to buy more of as I used so much holding it double. When it came to the edging I had run out of the Gotland lambswool, but tracked down a really good match with Blacker Yarns Dark Gotland.
It was a lot of knitting and charting, but I am really, really pleased with this one!

Chopping wood is hard, but it’s something modern society has largely freed us from as a daily activity. That’s nice, but consequently, if you ever do have to chop wood, you’re more than likely going to suck at it. Splitting a log requires a surprising amount of force, but Finnish inventor Heikki Kärnä has invented a new kind of axe that makes it much easier and safer.
Yes, axes have existed since time immemorial, but apparently there’s still room for improvement.
The Vipukirves does what the name implies, assuming you speak Finnish. It’s essentially acting as a lever instead of a wedge (Vipukirves translates as Leveraxe). A regular axe needs to be driven downward with enough force to separate wood along the grain. That’s a lot of force, and if a log is hit off center, the axe blade can deflect at unexpected angles. That’s not good — your squishy flesh is much easier to split than a log.
So what makes a lever different than a wedge in this scenario? The Vipukirves still has a sharpened blade at the end, but it has a projection coming off the side that shifts the center of gravity away from the middle. At the point of impact, the edge is driven into the wood and slows down, but the kinetic energy contained in the 1.9 kilogram axe head continues down and to the side (because of the odd center of gravity). The rotational energy actually pushes the wood apart like a lever. A single strike can open an 8 cm gap in a log, which is more than enough to separate it.
The inventor also claims this tool is much safer because the downward energy that might cause harm is dissipated gradually as rotational energy. So, no abrupt shock, and no deflection. The Vipukirves also naturally comes to rest on its side, which stabilizes the log and keeps the sharp edge pointed away from the operator. It’s really a clever design.
If you want this crazy physics-exploiting axe, it’s going to cost you. The base price is €193.12 in EU countries, including VAT. For US orders, the base price is €155.74 or about $215, plus €47.26 ($65) in shipping.
For a public installation entitled Magic Carpets 2014, French artist Miguel Chevalier transformed the floor of the Sacré Coeur cathedral in Casablanca, Morocco into an interactive psychedelic light show choreographed to music by Michel Redolfi.
Visitors walk across a massive carpet of light that first appears as an unstable monochromatic display before giving way to vivid blocks and whorls of color. The trajectory of the kaleidoscopic shapes and colors changes in response to visitors’ footsteps.
Why people stress over periods
- The constant fear of bleeding through clothes
- The constant cramps
- Having to change pads/tampons every 2-4 hours
- Having to deal with mood swings
- Having to deal with boys going ‘Oh someones on their period’
- When you stand up its like a waterfall from your vagina
- Craving food to calm you down
- The constant fear that you smell of blood even though you dont
- Feeling over emotional
- FUCKEN CRAMPS
YOU MEAN I DON’T ACTUALLY SMELL LIKE BLOOD?!

i saw that one was missing
I’M SORRY I KNOW THIS ISN’T POKEMON BUT I FEEL COMPELLED TO SHOW YOU ALL THIS
There are a bunch here that I don’t recognize I’m crying
Who is Madame medusa
How many movies have I missed
The smell of a sins
<U>Some you may not recognize:</U>
Madame Medusa is from The Rescuers.
Governor Ratcliffe if from Pocahontas.
Prince John is from Robin Hood.
Foulfellow and Gideon are from Pinocchio.
Lady Tremaine (Evil Step-Mother) is from Cinderella.
Doctor Facilier is from The Princess and the Frog.
Although I have to point out that there was a piece of speculative science fiction called The Blazing World published by one Margaret Cavendish, Duchess of Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 1666, slightly predating Mary Shelley.
