I support Sea Shepherd

Eliminating humans seems like the logical conclusion.

Why? Why? Why dear fucking God, WHY?

I'm sorry but I can't even BEGIN to articulate my mind around such terrible and pointless cruelty.
I'm gonna grab my teddy bear, curl up and cry in a little corner now... ;_;

PS: Support Sea Shepherd if you want things to change since the protection of sharks is one of their primary goals.

Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle: "At the moment our human world is based on the suffering and destruction of millions of non-humans. To perceive this and to do something to change it in personal and public ways is to undergo a change of perception akin to a religious conversion. Nothing can ever be seen in quite the same way again because once you have admitted the terror and pain of other species you will, unless you resist conversion, be always aware of the endless permutations of suffering that support our society."

I already know the name of my ship

In the name of RANDOM

Dear internet, today's entry in this lovely little journal of mine will be filled with a lot of diverse material in form and nature because I just feel like it.

First of all, let's begin with the incredible immortal jellyfish: Turritopsis Nutricula.

As the article in the Telegraph stated it: "The Turritopsis Nutricula is able to revert back to a juvenile form once it mates after becoming sexually mature.
Marine biologists say the jellyfish numbers are rocketing because they need not die.
Dr Maria Miglietta of the Smithsonian Tropical Marine Institute said: "We are looking at a worldwide silent invasion."
The jellyfish are originally from the Caribbean but have spread all over the world.
Turritopsis Nutricula is technically known as a hydrozoan and is the only known animal that is capable of reverting completely to its younger self.
It does this through the cell development process of transdifferentiation.
Scientists believe the cycle can repeat indefinitely, rendering it potentially immortal.
While most members of the jellyfish family usually die after propagating, the Turritopsis nutricula has developed the unique ability to return to a polyp state.
Having stumbled upon the font of eternal youth, this tiny creature which is just 5mm long is the focus of many intricate studies by marine biologists and geneticists to see exactly how it manages to literally reverse its aging process."

Yes, you read that right, if these jellyfish don't have a highly efficient predator,they'll just end up exponentially increasing!
I, for one, welcome our molluscs overlords and will apply myself to be the most perfect slave

Also, fandom-wise I just realized that I never made a proper entry reflecting on Green Lantern #37. So I have to say that my reaction to the ending was pretty close to this:

Colour me clueless guys, because I really did.not.see.it.coming!
The wait for the next issue already begins to be excruciating...

Also in kali921's latest entry she displayed an AMAZING self-portrait wich inspired me to do my very own. After 5 minutes in MS-paint I am at last able to display my artistic talents in this faithful rendition (complete with captions and all)

Yes, that is totally objective and faithful. I'm sure now you'll be able to recognize me if you roam in Paris' streets.

In other news, I may not be a great fan of porno movies but I have to admit that those of the early 20th century are some of the funniest things Ive ever seen. It teached me that standards of beauty have really, incredibly changed over the decades, that old people love to screw in public and that if you're not careful enough, you can take a penis for a mushroom (don't ask, you don't really want to know).

Again in the animals are awesome department, a drunken russian asshole named Alexander Kirilov tried last weekend to rape a raccoon who did not take this offer kindly and quickly bit off his penis.
Ah, the sweet taste of justice rightly delivered! :D (if you want to read the story by yourself, though there isn't much more to it, head here)

I've also tried recently (since I apparently like to maul my brain) to view and read creationists materials (mostly shitty videos on Youtube) and, quite expectedly, I ended up foaming and even more disgruntled by humanity than I previously was. So first, let me state one thing, if you're a christian good for you; I honestly don't care to what system of belief you adhere to and all is fine with me AS LONG AS YOU DON'T TRY TO TRAVESTY SCIENCE TO MAKE THE WORLD AGREE WITH YOUR TWO THOUSAND YEAR OLD BOOK!!!
*deep breath*
Honestly, few things irk more than close-mindedness or religious fundies and creationists answer to both fronts. On the other hand, thanks the gods (oh my, irony!) for the great evolutionists resources I've stumbled upon while trying to cleanse my brain of all the mental-retardedness I had just witnessed. One of these is Thunderf00t AMAZING Youtube channel and most of all his "Why do people laugh at creationists" series of videos. Some of the them aren't of a very high quality, especially the earlier ones, but if you've got more than a passing interest in science, you definitely need to check them out. Awesome stuff really.

flower power!!!

Open those cages!

I am literally frothing to the mouth!
As of two days ago the seven english animal rights activists of the Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) who were arrested back in May have been condemned by jury and found guilty of 'conspiracy with persons unknown to blackmail' towards Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) with terms that ranges from 4 to 11 years.

The sentences are as follow, after a 3 months and a half long trial at Winchester Crown Court:
Daniel Wadham - 5 years
Daniel Amos 4 years
Gerrah Selby - 4 years
Heather Nicholson - 11years
Gregg Avery 9 years
Natasha Avery - 9 years
Gavin Medd-Hall - 8 years

My opinion?
I support the SHAC, the ALF (Animal Liberation Front) as well as anybody fighting for decent and humane conditions for animals a hundred percent. If that's deemed an unpopular and/or too radical position, well that's too damn bad but that wont make me change it even a little bit. Those guys in prison are too me HEROES willing to sacrifice their life (see Jill Phipps) and liberties for causes they believe in and that are, at least to me, well damn worth fighting for.

I'm going to buy some stationery and mail them, since that seems to be what they need the most, as of tomorrow. I know it won't change things at all but I need to do something to help and feel a wee bit better about all this.

Mononoke hime will defend the forest

My nerdiness is whining

Random post rage but I’m really fed up with the Barry Allen hate in scans_daily. Hey, I know I mostly lurk here, seldom comment and as such shouldn’t complain about the tone of a community I’m not really shaping myself, but I’m intimidated in huge-ass comms and all this mess doesn’t motivate me that much to make myself better known (Aouch! This sentence is hurting my english!)
Honestly scans_daily is a great board. It’s one of the internet places where I spend the most time on and, as a student-poor comic lover, I appreciate the fact that it helps keeping track of storylines whose books I can afford and introduces me to titles I wouldn’t even have thought of reading before (“The Authority”, fuck yeah!).
BUT, it’s not a perfect place nevertheless; I’ve lately read some racist comments that creeped me the fuck out (most notably in the failtastic Avatar-casting thread) and there seems to be a very definite view of what you should like here. I’m a HUGE Hal, Barrie and Ollie fan while I couldn’t care less (and sometimes downright hate) Impulse, Spoiler or Cassandra/Batgirl, apparently that definitely makes me some kind of anti-christ…
Yes I love Wally West, but that doesn’t change the fact that I’m OVERWHELMINGLY EXCITED to witness the resurrection of a character I grew up loving (even though he was technically already dead when I was born). So yeah, even if I’m the only one in this case, “The Flash: Rebirth” is a book I’m really looking forward to and a bunch of internet experts won’t spoil the enjoyment of this one terrible heathen. ;P

me = true panda lover

The memage, it's wooling

I love icons (mine specifically) and memes amuse me, so today let's have an ICON MEME:


fave shipfave fandombest quote
most politicalmost insultingmost WTF
best stolen ideause the mostfavorite
Always changes.
IF YOU COULD BUY SPACE FOR MORE, WOULD YOU: Hell yes I would! (Gosh, I'm so shallow...)
DO YOUR ICONS MAKE A STATEMENT: Some of them, but in the end they mostly show my geekery and childishness (also, what does it says about me that the ones I had the most trouble to choose were "the cutest" and "the angriest"?)
AND THE SECOND MOST: Disney movies (what did I just said about geekery and childishness? ;))
WHAT SHIP DO YOU HAVE THE MOST ICONS OF: Er...I only have one shipping icon. (well, except if you count crazy!Hal and his flower)
DO YOU MAKE ICONS: I made one (in MS-paint) and added text to a few others.
ARE THEY ANY GOOD: NO! (well, still the bases of those I added text on ARE good)
ANIMATED ICONS ARE: Cool! I wish I had more actually.

And if you want to do the meme yourself, here is the coding. :D
Do it!

Hal Jordan is saving life with the ALF

I swear this must be the end of mankind

Lately I was talking with several persons about the animals who are the best adaptated to humanity rampant destruction modifications of the natural environment. Everyone came up with the popular answers that are rats or cockroaches but, while I agree with all of these suggestions, my choice was birds.
Birds? Yes, because even aside from the fact that they can fly you have to have to admire birds exceptional adaptability , ingenuity and all-around baddassery.
I'm thinking especially of:

a most peculiar girl

Study, you lazy one!!!

All my exams are killing me!
Yes, it's once again this time in the semester when you suddenly realize that there's this nice thing called finals happening in a few days and that you're NOT READY!
I furthermore can't allow myself to fail anything this cession, or the following one in June, since (if everything goes well) I'll finally be able to study linguistics full time next year. My love for words and grammar would never let me live a failure down!
And, of course, my anxiety has to go back and nag me constantly. Avoidant disorder, I hate you (honestly, how I am even supposed to concentrate with this shit bugging me?)!

So, Happy New Year a little late and sorry for the discontinuing presence but I'll probably keep on posting/commenting sporadically for a week or so.

my hero shares my lifestyle

Soooo...so tired....

This is basically the state I've spent the whole day in:

writing from Santa’s home

Joyeux Noël and Feliz Navidad!

I was away this last four days in the french Alps with my family, hence my absence from the net. 'Twasn't as great as promised but I got to see the mountains, breath fresh air and frolic in the snow, so who I am to complain? No, I have instead a very important message to pass:


Even if you're not celebrating, I truly hope you're spending a wonderful (couple of) day(s) with those you love.

And since Christmas wouldn't feel complete without a strangely disturbing flying victorian jellyfish:

Why, I could make a Christmas tree! And there's not a reason I can find, I couldn't have a Christmastime! I bet I could improve it, too! And that's exactly what I'll do!"

Rogue is writing

Sexy time!

I've (almost) accidentally stumbled upon this little flash animation of everybody's favorite potions master and gosh, such beauty must be shared by clicking here (kimuro this one is for you ;) )!

Not that it has anything to do with the rest of the post, but I hate my boobs. HATE THEM!
They're not that huge (thank God I only have B-cup titties), but they still deserve my flaming hatred for being all jiggly, squishy, and highly impracticable. I don't even find the stuff attractive and don't need any more proof that I should have been born as a boy.
Yeah, yeah, I know: maybe if I wore bras more often than once every three months I wouldn't resent them that much; but if feminism taught me one thing is that at least I'm free to blind everybody with my squiggly appendices if I want to!
