I’m going to have a rant about online shopping and people shipping to Australia, don’t mind me.
Fucking shipping only in the US, why is that even a thing, what the fuck? I really need a new tablet pen, do you know how hard it is to buy tablet pens? Very Hard. Do you know how expensive new tablets are? fucking expensive. Do you know expensive US shipping to Australia is? Fucking expensive. Do you how far from the US I live? Very fucking far. Why would you only ship in the US. why? Why? why? I don’t even know anyone in the US I could ship to and then could ship to me, I mean Europe I guess I could ship to my Dad, but that would take like 3 months, and argh fucking postage. WHY fucking online shopping?
Do you know what the real question is in all of this, why is one tablet’s pen in the same fucking brand not compatible with the next generation of tablet’s pen? Why Wacom Why? $45 for a pen that’s literally the same thing but it won’t work, on my slightly older tablet, so I have to go through this massive effort of finding an overseas (because Australia is useless) online shop that sells older compatible technology. Useless upgrades, fucking hell. Also Wacom’s website is really fucking hard to navigate, and impossible to find any sort of compatibility information on anything not new basically, I mean even the Samsung page is easier to navigate and that still took me, someone who uses the internet like 6-10 hours every day and would call myself proficient on a computer, 3 attempts to place a service request (I swear to god, serial number instructions on that website are the most vague things on the planet, then the service request form is in an entirely different place, so useless). Like honestly these people need to invest in clear information listings.
Anyway, my point is, Wacom, you really need to make your website clearer and have better technology compatibility and sell older tablet pens and just yeah.
It’s alive! Buried deep in the Siberian permafrost scientists found a ‘giant virus’ that has been asleep for 30,000 years. Named Pithovirus sibericum, it contains 500 genes and was revived in the lab. The researchers are now trying to assess if ancient viruses such as this one could pose a threat for humans. via Science Alert/fb
Let’s hope this wasn’t the stupidest thing we’ve ever done.
there are about 16046540210 movies that explain exactly why this could be the stupidest thing we’ve ever done
Except not really. As the article explains, this proves that viruses are far more varied than we ever thought possible, which is fascinating, they are pretty much this amazing sector of genetic diversity, far more than animals and plants even.
The article goes on to explain that viruses can survive for long amounts of time in cold temperatures but with mining, drilling, digging in these climates it’s possible to come across more viruses like this that have survived for long periods of time, unlikely but possible.
It’s also possible with climate change that we could be exposed to some of these viruses, most of which would do nothing to us, as said, there are trillions of viruses in the world, we are one species. Viruses themselves effect everything from bacteria to plants to animals, and 99.999% will have no effect on us, and the rest will die as soon as they stop being frozen, or in the dark.
Basically, the article points out that increasing knowledge means that cataloguing viruses and checking which ones ones might be anti-human and making vaccines for those to keep around is a good idea in the very unlikely case we do one day come across a human-killing giant virus, which is in itself almost impossible. In the meantime, the idea is that viruses are intensely fascinating and varied, also have some broader applications when not the human ones.
got no problem with watching a full season of tv in one sitting but when it comes time to pick a movie im like “am i really ready to pay attention to something for two hours”
This is the most accurate thing I have read about movie watching in ages and I have so many movies I want to watch and I haven’t watched them because every time I go to watch them I’m like 2 hours, that’s a long time, I could spend like 2 hours watching 2-6 episodes of something else. It’s just 1 movie though, you know.
Also my problem with Game of Thrones as good as it is, it takes a long time, like once you get into it great but starting off, you’re like fuck it’s a whole hour, so long.
Its also in the book
I was rewatching this movie the other day and got up to the point where she and Miss Honey meet for the first time in the classroom, and she mentions that her favorite author is Charles Dickens.
And, like, I always thought they namedropped him in order to make her sound intellectual, but it occurred to me really suddenly and violently that the reason she loves Dickens is because he writes about children who live in abusive systems and who’ve been orphaned or abandoned and she finds comfort and solidarity in it. Miss Honey’s reacts the way she does because Dickens is special to her, likely for the same exact reason. WOW DUH.
ONLY GETTING THIS LIKE 15 YEARS LATER. ALL ABOARD THE SLOW MOBILE.
If it’s any consolation, I’m pretty sure 70% of the people reblogging this also didn’t realise this until you said it. Myself included.
Oh my god. Another tumblr revolution
ONLY DEAD PEOPLE KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN U DIE AND THAT FRUSTRATES MEactually my friend had an operation last year and she was legally dead for seven minutes from loss of blood and she said it literally feels like absolutely nothing
that’s not comforting
Isn’t it? I mean, I would say that’s more comforting than most alternatives. I would say that’s more comforting than most ideas of hell. It’s not an idea of heaven sure but I guess, heaven is really just some sort of eternal life, which I think would be a bit dull, just eternity is like I don’t think people grasp how long that is. Anyway, we spend like a good 30-50% of our lives asleep, basically the same thing as death in my head, unconscious, not aware of anything, the difference between on standby and off basically. I mean really I’d rather spend the rest of eternity as nothing than live forever.
SPREAD THE DAMN WORD
THAT WAS COOL
My hands are too small to do this effectively.
I wish I wasn’t iPod
if you’re on ipod you just hold down the reblog button
wtf just happened??
OMIGOSH THAT WAS SO COOL
