I wish we didnt live in such an age of definite knowledge. I wish i could make a game and put a 1 in a millionth chance of meeting a wendigo in that damn game so only a few chosen people in the world would be like “guys i totally saw a wendigo in that game the other day” because nowadays youll just get 5 people on 4chan decrypting all the files of your game within 20 minutes to find the damn wendigo sprites

undefine the wendigo. segment the wendigo into 20 distinct sprite components and use those components in other sprites. segment the wendigo’s behaviour into 10 different classes. split design and data. split data and code. ascend and become ubermensch

:0

that sounds like a lot of work

ironinkpen:

  • break up your paragraphs. big paragraphs are scary, your readers will get scared
  • fuuuuck epithets. “the other man got up” “the taller woman sat down” “the blonde walked away” nahhh. call them by their names or rework the sentence. you can do so much better than this (exception: if the reader doesn’t know the character(s) you’re referring to yet, it’s a-okay to refer to them by an identifying trait)
  • blunette is not a thing
  • new speaker, new paragraph. please.
  • “said” is such a great word. use it. make sweet love to it. but don’t kill it
  • use “said” more than you use synonyms for it. that way the use of synonyms gets more exciting. getting a sudden description of how a character is saying something (screaming, mumbling, sighing) is more interesting that way.
  • if your summary says “I suck at summaries” or “story better than summary” you’re turning off the reader, my dude. your summary is supposed to be your hook. you gotta own it, just like you’re gonna own the story they’re about to read
  • follow long sentences w short ones and short ones w long ones. same goes for paragraphs
  • your writing is always better than you think it is. you just think it’s bad because the story’s always gonna be predicable to the one who’s writing it
  • i love u guys keep on trucking

No, no, that’s not it at all! I love dandelions! They’re like little drops of sunlight that fell into the grass and they always look so happy and cheerful! I loved them when I was a little girl and I still love them to this day. ❤️

So don’t forget that! Someone out there cares about you!

Bam, 3 different AUs in one post. The first one was just me getting addicted to body mods and also I was trying out some pastels I got for Christmas. 

The second picture is from an Elfen Lied AU, in which Kyle and a few others had those weird invisible vector arms that can slice and dice flesh and bone like it’s nothing. In this picture, Cartman pissed him off a bit too much and suddenly his arm was gone wow

The rest of the pictures are from another AU entirely which is way too deep to go into detail with rn

in superman adventures #19, there’s a villain named multi-face who can convincingly disguise himself as anyone, even tricking dna tests and x-ray vision. Superman initially can’t stop him

and the only reason he gets caught is because multiface decides to disguise himself as, of all people, CLARK KENT i’m screaming

why do villains always mess up so badly

Climate change scientists fight for funding to save High Arctic lab

allthecanadianpolitics:

allthecanadianpolitics:

Some of Canada’s leading climate change scientists are fighting to keep the country’s northernmost research station in operation.

The Polar Environment Atmospheric Research Laboratory (PEARL) in Eureka, Nunavut, tracks atmospheric data that no other research station can, given its High Arctic latitude, only 1,110 kilometres from the North Pole.

There, researchers study ozone depletion, and how the thawing Arctic is contributing to climate change, as well as other polar science.

But with PEARL’s core funding set to run out this year, scientists are warning if PEARL closes, there’s no filling the void.

“You’re in this part of the world that’s very significant for all these different global environmental challenges,” said Dan Weaver, a PhD student at the University of Toronto who has conducted research at PEARL since 2012.

“From climate change to ozone depletion, to even transport of pollution — we have that unique piece of the puzzle to offer the world.”

Continue Reading.

This is really disappointing flip-flop from Justin Trudeau. There is no other research facility like this in the world. It is important more than ever to have good climate science data.

In 2012, cuts under the Harper government saw researchers come within 20 days of beginning a shutdown of the laboratory, until last-minute funding came through from the Climate Change and Atmospheric Research Initiative (CCAR).

One of the more vocal proponents to try to save PEARL at the time was Liberal MP Kirsty Duncan — now the federal minister of Science.

“This is a government that has a war on science, a war on the environment,” Duncan said of the Harper government in the House of Commons on Oct. 29, 2012.

“The government has cut the Polar Environment Atmospheric Research Laboratory in the far North, which looks at ozone, at climate change. This year we have had the greatest melting, ever, of sea ice in the High Arctic. Last year, an ozone hole was discovered that was two million square kilometres.

“Why would the government cut a research station at a time when major environmental changes are taking place?”

Duncan even presented a petition earlier that year for the Harper government to fund PEARL.

Asked Friday why her government is now cutting funding to the same research station she fought to save, or what’s changed since her plea, Duncan sidestepped the question, saying she’s working on “a comprehensive approach.”

worldbuilding process:

step 1: make up some cool mysterious shit
step 2: desperately struggle to figure out why all the cool shit is there

Desperately struggle?  But step 2 is the best, most fun part of world building.  How can I rationalize this thing existing, and what can I infer from this things existence?
