Eventually something introductory or witty will be placed in this location.

The Throne of Nerds by Mike DeWolfe

A tech-y homage to the Game of Thrones, the Throne of Nerds is constructed from 20 keyboards, shaped and melted down by, presumably, nerdrage fire. Much like the Throne of Swords from the series, the keyboards have been rendered useless by the warping process, now unable to fulfill their intended function, their only purpose now is to serve as a symbol of power for whoever rests their butt on it. Additionally, the ESC key on every keyboard except the top most prominent one has been scorched to suggest that while flamewars and Internet points have been shed in the struggle to conquer it, there is nonetheless no escaping one’s fate.

The Geography of Gun Deaths: States With Tighter Gun Control Laws Have Fewer Gun-Related Deaths


With all of the garbage happening lately in this country, I feel increasingly privileged every day to have grown up in and be living in Massachusetts. There are few states as progressive and responsible for their citizens, and we’re proof that legislation (not just limited to gun laws - health care and equal marriage rights also spring to mind) that many conservative states don’t want actually does work.
Tragically, Connecticut also has some of the tightest gun regulations in the nation. Until the government stops protecting bogus individual state freedoms and starts federally regulating this across the board, we will not see an improvement.
We’re one country with a shared responsibility for one another and we should start acting like it. There are only so many things that make sense to let states regulate individually.

Rebloggable for the anon with CLASSY ASKS. ;P

Perhaps that anon is thinking of the ventricle of the brain? They are pretty strange looking structures. Anatomy atlases often display them as blue. We’ve drawn them at my medical illustration program.

Okay. I went home for the weekend and while I was there I found out that a couple people I went to high school with got married and have real jobs and houses; not apartments or condo’s but actual houses. And then other people I know are having legitimate children. Literally, I didn’t put normal clothes on today until about 5 o’clock.

What have I been doing for the past 5 years?

Ugh.

Same. I feel as though my being fully consumed by my studies and ambitions over the past four years have turned me into a bitter, resentful person. Worse, I cannot show sincere positive emotions for these people who went through different paths of life because all I can think of is “why aren’t you in school you privileged young adults?!” I won’t afford a real house, a car, or marriage and children for a good ten years. And I still want my Ph.D even if it kills me.
