You ever have those moments where things just really suck? That was last night. It wasn’t bad compared to some of the other things that have happened, but my ipod died and then my son had this super epic nose bleed right after I crawled into bed, forcing me to get out of bed to deal with it. I was really mad about loosing my ipod and then really mad about having to deal with a bloody nose, especially since he knows how to deal with them himself. Then I saw how much blood was all over my bathroom and felt really bad for how pissed I was with my kid.

So I got him cleaned up, got the nosebleed stopped, sent him to bed, and got the blood cleaned up. Then I went back to bed.

This morning, things turned around. I got my sales profits from my books on Lulu. I got a sales notification for 2 books on Smashwords. My EI payment went in and it was larger than expected. Later in the day, my ipod decided to start working again and I got another sale notification and then another one just now. One of me books, Stars of Destiny, has made it into the iTunes store, so that was a nice bonus.

My kids played nice together all day and it wasn’t blazingly hot today. It’s so nice to have a day like this after something like last night.

what is the most noticeable thing of my art style?

#probably the best explanation of a device in the tv history

This is literally my fourth or fifth time reblogging this.

It’s still hillarious.

One of my favorite lines

I kinda feel like the writers wrote this line specifically to drive the kind of fans who want to figure out how sci-fi tech would theoretically work crazy. They’re like “nope! We’re not going to give you any techno babble to tear apart or investigate or mull over to tell us how we’re doing it wrong, or how it compares in effectiveness to similar tech in other franchises.”

I also feel like this is one of those times when the TARDIS’s translation circuit just gave the fuck up. Like the ‘physics physics physics’ scene, where he is imparting secrets of the universe and the TARDIS is like THERE ARE NO WORDS FOR THIS IN ENGLISH DAMN IT DOCTOR OH HELL FUCK IT.

OH MY GODS she TOTALLY edits his speech. I be he actually swears a fuckton but the TARDIS is like THERE ARE CHILDREN

I love how this post is like “Oh, clean up some of the nastiest, hard to clean shit with coke!” but doesn’t mention “Hey, you actually ingest this stuff that can clean CORRODED CAR BATTERIES.”

Uhg.

Heyyy this is because when you put carbon dioxide to make the carbonated water, you get carbonic acid. Carbonic acid varies in how much the pH is, especially in the different coke products. Strong enough to dissolve rust but not steel or any of the metals mentioned here.

But here’s the thing, carbonic acid is not one of the 6 strong acids. You know what is one of those? Hydrocholric acid. You know where you naturally secrete hydrocholric acid? Your stomach. Hydrochloric acid is some nasty stuff and WILL eat away at a screw if allowed to soak long enough. If you ever got just drop of a diluted solution on your skin in chem lab, then you can see where that would happen very easily.

The stronger acid wins. Your tummy is fine when you drink coke. Your tummy makes acid strong enough to fuck that corroded battery up. It can handle a can of coke. Please don’t swallow a screw or something to test this tho, please.

thank you science side of tumblr <3

Seriously. You could probably do all of these with lemon juice (citric acid) or vinegar (ethanoic, or acetic, acid) just because acids work in pretty similar ways. Actually, when you see people recommending vinegar as a household cleaner? This is what it’s doing!

Also, as someone who has accidentally inhaled hydrochloric acid fumes, TRUST ME, THE CARBONIC ACID IS MUCH BETTER.

Every time I see a hysterical post on modern food I just kinda point and laugh

Because dude. Dude.  You know what you breathe in and out every fucking second to survive? Oxygen. An incredibly corrosive gas that is probably responsible for more deaths across the history of the planet than anything else. Not only that, it’s a biproduct of photosynthesis. You literally rely on plant excretions to survive

Do you know what most of your body is made up of? Water. Which, given enough time, will destroy anything.

That morning coffee you like? Well shit, caffeine - lifeblood to many - is actually an incredibly potent nerve toxin (If you’re an insect). Plants actually produce that shit as an insecticide.

That refreshing zing from citrus?  Acid.  That juicy smack of a tomato? Acid and cadmium.  That tart in an apple? Arsenic.  That seasoning you put all over your fish and chips? Acid strong enough to destroy seashells - life that has evolved to survive living in a salt-drenched sea.

Stop being a tit and drink your damned coke.

EVERYTHING. IS. CHEMICALS.

It IS safe to say though that drinking/eating too many acidic foods CAN damage some things such as the esophagus or teeth - but it does require QUITE a lot of acid.

SCIENCE, BITCH

Guess who finally got off her butt and got the errors in ‘Stars of Destiny’ fixed AND got ‘Path of the Sorceress’ formatted? Oh yeah, that’s right. This girl!

Reblog because Firefly

This was one of the plushies I made for my summer cons. I feel really sad that no one knew who he was, which is probably why I still have him in my suitcase.

This may have something to do with the fact that the 12th Doctor hasn&#8217;t really made much of an appearance yet. Had those cons happened after  his first full episode had aired, this would likely have been a different story.

It&#8217;s also really not easy to find decent refs of Peter Capaldi&#8217;s hair, by the way.

So maybe I&#8217;ll just put him on my shelf and watch the new Doctor Who episodes with my 12th Doctor plush.
