sleepingobsidian:

So I’m wondering if there has been a fic written for ST: AOS with a cadet at Starfleet Academy, who thinks Kirk is to arrogant, publishing James T. Kirks unencrypted file with everything. Tarsus IV and all. Bc I’m clearly a sucker for all the hurt and pain that brings

Okay, does anybody know a beta for the star trek fandom?

Things heating up in the pasta fandom Italian community.

actualaster:

And that is why it is an abomination.

Disgusting. Vile. I would die before eating that filth.

specsthespectraldragon:

wait
that picture up there then ACTUALLY is of a smooth tube and not just. a bad picture?

smooth penne exists?

that’s horrifying the ridges are the best part it’s like eating a tiny accordion

aphony-cree:

Penne lische is smooth and doesn鈥檛 hold sauce the way penne rigate does

The grooves make more sauce adhere to it

dwlostcompanion:

Someone explain please! I want to knowwww

tchaikovskaya:

jeannettegray:

Listen, if I’m gonna die, my last meal is NOT gonna be fucking penne lisce.

maarigoldie:

The moment italians start buying penne lisce will be the moment we know our society has truly collapsed

sedfierisentio:

The most hilarious part of italians鈥 reaction to coronavirus/covid19 has been them stockpiling EVERY SINGLE type of pasta except the PENNE LISCE

which Italians couldn鈥檛 bring themselves to buy or eat even during a mass psychosis

I thought you guys were kidding. We don’t sell that kind of noodle and we sell some with lemon and dill

So basically you have to hit them home or smth like that?

Like Climate Change is going to influence your future coffee drinking habits, chocolate and basically everything that grows in allready warm regions.

Most of these plants are rather sensitive to temperature from what I know

If you鈥檙e ever like聽鈥渂ut what do fic writers even WANT.鈥

a book report

They want a book report.

They want you to get 9th grade English up in their shit.聽

Remember having to write ad nauseam about the symbolism of that stupid conch in Lord of the Flies? They want you to do that about Steve Roger鈥檚 shield and Emma Swan鈥檚 jacket.

Yeah man a global pandemic has the same mortality rate as the 1918 spanish flu so it鈥檚 chill I guess

Like obviously for most people that use this website it鈥檚 useful to know that they will more than likely survive if they contract Covid-19 & practicing good hygiene to prevent transmission is more helpful than panicking but a 2% mortality rate is actually a big fucking deal

intergalactic-dorks:

There are people in the comments going 鈥淧eople can recover?!?!鈥 it鈥檚 so shocking how uninformed some people are.

Yeah absolutely the current death rate is 2% out of all the people who are diagnosed with the virus. That means the other 98% of the people who get infected recover and are just fine. (So this image isn鈥檛 an acurate statistic but whatever) It鈥檚 mostly dangerous for elderly people, people who work in healthcare and people with pre-existing health issues.

So no need to panic, just wash your hands and cover your mouth when your sneeze or cough.

ciup3k:

Also like can people stop saying聽鈥榦nly dangerous for elderly people or people with pre-existing conditions鈥, because newsflash that is a shit ton of millions and millions of people, including a lot of people you love, no doubt.聽

Not to mention a lot of people reading these and similar posts ARE immuno-compromised or chronically ill (because millions of people who are not elderly fall under that!), and they鈥檙e seeing聽鈥榦h it鈥檚 only if you have pre-existing conditions, so no need to panic鈥, which sounds a lot like throwing them under the bus.聽

An excellent addendum, thank you

This is probably the cutest

This is the perfect pet for people who want to keep a small container of water with something pretty in it. Even though it鈥檚 a plant and not a fish, it鈥檚 way cuter than a sad, cramped betta- and less maintenance, too. A marimo is perfect for that pretty aesthetic or your college dorm room. Want a mason jar aquarium? A marimo will be perfectly happy in there. Want a fishbowl with pretty rocks? Get a marimo, or even a few of them! I can鈥檛 overstate how wonderful and cute marimo are.

I just鈥DORE shit like this. Oh my god it鈥檚 so cute if I don鈥檛 own one I might die.

Let鈥檚 face it, if the world ends, so many of us will flee somewhere else for safety that we鈥檒l end right back up in communities again. There鈥檚 going to be more to it than growing your own food and knitting handspun socks.

I鈥檓 linking to resources, but a many of these skills, being interpersonal, are best taught in live trainings by professional instructors, where you can see and feel all the interpersonal dynamics going on in the room, and by experience, trying them out on real people in an educational setting.

When the world ends, it will be helpful to be able to::

Even small local pieces of activism today, like organizing a protest march or lobbying your municipal government to make public spaces more accessible, have a double reward: There鈥檚 the work you鈥檙e doing, and聽the skills you learn when you do it.

the assumption that people with violent killing skills should be given priority/power in a post-apocalyptic society is the reason it stays post-apocalyptic and doesn鈥檛 actually rebuild society

the assumption that people with violent killing skills should be given priority/power in a post-apocalyptic society is the reason it stays post-apocalyptic and doesn鈥檛 actually rebuild society

So Im taking this textile history course and learned about something called the String revolution: the invention of how to make strings (yarn) was essential in so many things. Its how we got bows (improved hunting), tents and clothes (easier to survive) and sails (long distance travel!). So: if you want to be able to say you have a postapocalyptic skill, just learn to spin and / or weave.

The nuclear family is probably the greatest enabler of child abuse, ever.

Putting two people in complete control of another person (who is particularly vulnerable and has few legal rights) and then having no oversight for the whole arrangement is the absolute worst idea.

Families are garbage.

Hahaha wtf

I wouldn鈥檛 even know where to start with this. omg.

OP, what would you propose as an alternative to families?

communal child raising

less isolated familial structures in general

children being made aware of how they should and shouldn鈥檛 be treated

Some form of child protection services that don鈥檛 just believe the parents and assume a child is lying when they report abuse

more legal and counselling services made available to children

I don鈥檛 get people that are like 鈥渓ol, what? that鈥檚 so weird, lets laugh at the very notion that traditional families are abusive鈥.

communal child raising is the traditional family. 70-100 years ago 4 generations lived together in the same house, having 4 grandparents, 6 aunts and 15 cousins around every day was normal.

Things that should be mentioned:

- These communities are not necessarily connected by an biological ties. In a lot of these multigenerational 鈥榝amilies鈥, including people in the family who are not relatives or married into the family is totally normal. This has always created a lot more space to support people without families, support people who do now want to partner up and to create communities in which couples who can not have children (like some queer couples but not all & other couples too) can be a part of child raising.聽

- Having a lot more young people around often means young people learn from each other. In many cultures young people form a non-hierarchial group that learns together and can do a great deal without adult supervision.聽

The nuclear family doesn鈥檛 just facilitate abuse, it facilitates hierarchy. It鈥檚 a training school for obedience to authority.聽

Now, which system would push such a training school strongly so it could get docile obedient citizens? Which system whould push the nuclear family.聽

I鈥檓 not saying it鈥檚 capitalism but it鈥檚 capitalism.聽

And then there鈥檚 the fact that the 2 parent, nuclear family can be most easily pushed into the pattern where one adult works an extremely exhausting job many hours a day that leaves that adult hardly capable of doing anything else, while the other adult takes on all the other things that adult would otherwise have done: care for children, clean the living space, prepare food, prepare clean clothing, etc. for free. What we know as traditional gender roles.聽

This way capitalism gets one intensely loyal worker who feels聽鈥榬esponsible鈥 for聽鈥榮upporting a family鈥 while all the work to keep that worker going is done for free by an unpaid worker in the home.聽

And, you know, communities need a lot less stuff. A community of 50 can do just fine with one or two hammers. 25 nuclear families need 25 hammers. The nuclear family demands a huge amount of commodity purchasing.聽

(hooboy that last point)

Damn. What a breakdown鈥

Communal living is fantastic for the disabled and elderly folks, as well.

Bead animals were my JAM in the 90鈥檚!! And you don鈥檛 have to limit your creativity to lizards, either! With a few adjustments, you can make anything!

AND with a little practice, you can even make them 3D shaped (especially with the smaller beads and wire, though you can make them with the bigger beads and string, to an extent)聽
