"I am not a robot! I am not a robot!" I continue to yell as the Turing cops drag me away. "You told me to click on all traffic lights, but you didn't specify if you just meant the lights or if the metal pole also counts! Human language is ambig-- I meant natural language!"
He adorable <3

A team of scientists is working on a polymer that grows stronger and repairs itself by absorbing carbondioxide from the air, like a growing plant.
EXACTLY like a growing plant; one of the ingredients are chloroplasts extracted from spinach. One goal is to replace those with a synthetic catalyst.

You just reminded me of an old comic: A horror author is signing copies of her latest book, and one of her fans asks: where do you get your ideas? The woman says "mostly, from my dreams."
The fan leaves, horrified at the nightmares the author must have.
Later, that night, in the author dreams:
Author (showing a scribble to a giant plush bunny): what do you think?
Giant plush bunny: great, but what if we add a chainsaw to make it even scarier?
We need to do a better job of normalizing selfies by people - especially trans people - who aren't conventionally attractive, who aren't thin and well-defined and who don't even come close to fitting society's expectation of what someone of their gender should look like.
I'd like to see more selfies from trans women who look like me - fat and round and "too masculine" and unkempt.
So I'll start.

Fun fact: the earliest museum curator we know about was a woman, Princess Ennigaldi of Ur, whose museum catalogued artifacts from earlier Babylonian and surrounding cultures. Her father, King Nabonidus, was the first known archaeologist.
Ennigaldi, who lived in the mid-6th century BCE, meticulously labeled each item in her museum - in three languages! - and took great care to preserve them; some of her collection dated back at least 1500 years.
The princess would ask for gifts as any child might, but her requests made little sense.
She would ask for 5 wooden buttons, or an empty barrel that once held apples, or weeds & herbs which she would then place in her finest vase.
This habit did not wane with age.
She would, of course, accept other gifts with grace, but her requests truly baffled all the court and her patient parents.
Secretly, she wished to be a simple country witch.
thinking of making up increasingly ridiculous folk sayings & inserting them into conversations while nodding sagely.
"you know what they say, your never bored if you build your house on a rollercoaster"
"ah,wise is the man who does not feed stray cats"
"beware those who come bearing carrots but offering cake"
"there is more than one way to skin a cat but there is only one way to furr a cat, which is to leave the cat alone"
"early to bed & early to rise means you don't get invited out much"
she's thinking about her wife (art by fawnrot @ fa!!)
“Y’all” is a superior plural pronoun. “Ain’t” is a perfectly good contraction. “Reckon” is a fantastic verb for describing when you are of an opinion. “Yonder” is the only word to describe that way over there.
