Wow, I’m really glad that I have “Sherlock” tumblr savior’ed right now. 


fortysixthhour:

I had raspberry M&Ms in my lunch at work yesterday, much to the shock and delight of my co-workers, who had never heard of such a thing. I then had to explain to everyone in my office about all of the Truly Weird Yet Delicious flavors of M&Ms that exist.

And seeing as how I just now finished off my very last cinnamon M&M (purchased during the Christmas 2011 season), I felt as though a post about Weird M&M Flavors was in order.

(If you’ve tried any of these, I’d love to know your thoughts… I’ve tried cinnamon, raspberry, cherry, and pumpkin spice, and enjoyed all of them!)

Attention universe: there is a new M&M flavor! Candy Apple. I assume this is supposed to be an “oh look, it’s autumn” thing, although it’s still summer in Texas for another three months, and spring is just around the corner in New Zealand, so not really sure when the appropriate time to consume these might be. Spotted in Walmart, along with the White Chocolate Candy Corn flavor. (And I found a bag of Birthday Cake, which are sometimes pretty hard to find, so mmmh, chocolate overload.)

Yep. Also drive-through donut shops. And drive through pharmacies. And drive through beer stores. We are a land of fat, lazy people who don’t want to get out of their nice, air-conditioned cars to walk ten feet* to obtain whatever it is we desire.

* I should note, however, that it was 38 degrees Celsius here today, and that’s a COOL day for this city, and when it’s that hot you really don’t want to walk 10 feet anywhere if you don’t have to.

Why is no one talking about this?

Texas politics are extremely fascinating right now. Rick Perry has been indicted. Elections are approaching. And once again, Wendy Davis is proving that she won’t take any shit, she won’t back down, and she won’t pull any punches.

Let me clarify: this is an actual ad, that is appearing on televisions across Texas right now. This ad states that Greg Abbott, who is running for governor against Wendy Davis, sided against a woman who was raped in 1993.

Blood Lake in Texas - The blood red color is a result of Chromatiaceae bacteria which turn red in oxygen deprived water.

Yeah, it’s beautiful. It’s amazing. It’s actually really awful and a sign that the environment at this lake was toxic to all life. Basically there was a really bad drought in Texas a few years ago and as a result the water level in this lake dropped and this bacteria formed because there wasn’t enough oxygen. And then the entire lake ended up drying out and a lot of fish died and so yeah. Beautiful but deadly.

i want realistic modern fantasy like

someone finding a dragon egg and livetweeting the process of trying to hatch it (with no prior knowledge on how a dragon egg should be hatched)

a guy selling an enchanted sword on craigslist

a tattoo artist who does spell runes but for really mundane stuff like conjuring a bound demonic pen or for summoning your keys

summoning a demon for the vine

selfies with mermaids

prank calling wizards

Read “The Magicians” by Lev Grossman. Not quite this, but the closest I’ve found.

This debut, an original space opera starring a cast of mostly [non-stars] proves two things. First it means that there is no summer slump. Audiences will flock to theaters if the film debuting is something they all want to see. Second, it means that Marvel can do whatever it wants now. So if they choose not to make a female-centric or minority-centric superhero film, it’s because they just don’t want to.

"WHY IS EVERYTHING A RECTANGLE"

United States of Rectangles, omg

The only thing I’ve gathered from this is that everyone knows where Texas is. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

My friend took this photo of me a few days ago. I rarely post personal photos on public forums, but I just love this picture so much.
(Still two weeks to go in my Epic Trip of 2014. So far I’ve been to Singapore, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Japan, Los Angeles, San Diego Comic Con, Las Vegas, and the Grand Canyon. In a few days I’m off to New York City, and then Disney World and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Currently a few days of downtime at my parents’ house, hence the pathetic attempt to catch up on tumblr.)
