don’t look guys i’m gonna talk about homestuck stuff for a second
it bugs me when people interpret eridan “white science” ampora as a guy who would ever actually be any good at science?
like the whole POINT of the “white science” schtick is that he’s a nerd who doesn’t…
Random doodles and drawings done over the past couple of days with friends and on twitter. I honestly have no idea what to think, so good luck. XD
"Girl Speaks Gibberish With Perfect Accents To Show What Languages Sound Like To Foreigners"
I love this?
I ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW WHAT AMERICAN ENGLISH SOUNDS LIKE TO OTHER PEOPLE.
What kind of fucking idiot thought this comic worked as an anti-food-stamp/anti-Obama message and what kind of fucking idiot would not only take it that way but agree with it?
OH NO, DON’T TAKE MONEY FROM THE LARGEST MILITARY IN THE WORLD TO FEED PEOPLE ANYTHING BUT THAT
It’s a pro-foodstamp comic, bog.
No, it seriously isn’t. It’s a cartoon by Michael Ramirez, a by-the-numbers hyper-conservative who thinks Global Warming is a hoax, Obama is a Muslim, and families on food stamps are deadbeat parasites.
Here’s another one he recently did:
So yes, the original, intended message of the comic is that war is better than feeding poor people.
Agoodcartoon is making fun of it by drawing attention to how badly it communicates its godawful meaning.
I really love when hamhanded political comics fail so spectacularly at their intended message and end up looking like they’re supporting the opposite. My desktop background has been this old piece of anti-suffragette art since I discovered it because that bar looks like a sweet as hell place but it was intended to be a horrifying glimpse of a dark future where women can own and frequent bars.
she’s done such a fantastic job on insects, especially the fluffy little bumblebee
WHOA ADORABLE BUG PEOPLE
depression is when you don’t really care about anything
anxiety is when you care too much about everything
and having both is just like whatHaving both is staying in bed because you don’t want to go to school and then panicking because you don’t want to fail. Having both is wanting to go see your friends so you don’t lose them all, then staying home in bed because you don’t want to make the effort. Having both is insanely hard and sucks to deal with.

yesterday in the car my mom said “theres always the one gay twin out of a pair” and my twin brother and I shot a glance at one another because we’re both the gay twin
Thank you mystery stranger for having the courage to deface these LGBTQIA posters around my friend’s school because she was too shy to do it but is now immensely grateful for the change
Adapt to this
LET ME JUST POINT OUT THE VARIOUS FLAWS OF LOGIC HERE. FIRST OF ALL DARWINS POWER IS TO LITERALLY ADAPT TO ANYTHING IN THE EFFING UNIVERSE. HIS POWERS DEEMED IT TOO DANGEROUS TO FIGHT THE HULK AND TELEPORTED HIM TO ANOTHER COUNTRY. HE ONCE BECAME PURE COSMIC EFFING ENERGY AND SHORTLY AFTER REMATERIALIZED AS A HUMAN BEING TO PREVENT HIS DEATH. DARWIN IS LITERALLY INEFFINGVINCIBLE. AND YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT A PATHETIC BALL OF KINETIC ENERGY FROM SEBASTIAN SHAW MERKS HIM?!?!?! THEY OBVIOUSLY ARE OUT TO KILL THE BLACK MAN IN THE PLOT AND LITERALLY WROTE THIS SCENE WITH NO REGARDS TO DARWINS POWERS WHATSOEVER AND ITS FRUSTRATING THAT THEY WOULD GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO KILL HIM OFF LIKE THAT
I’m saying. Even in sci fi we ain’t safe
in my headcanon darwin literally became a being of energy and ascended to another plain of existence so he doesn’t have to deal with anymore of this white nonsense
Even in Scifi? We not safe in real life.
thank you I’ve been saying this for the longest!!!!! He is a damn omega level mutant, meaning in the movie he would be a class 5! Dude even adapted into a God and became the God of Death! Dude was college educated in the comics and they made him a taxi driver…like Black folks weren’t educated in the 70’s. And they didn’t even acknowledge that he was an Afro Latino…his name is Armando Munoz, he’s one of the few Afro latino superheros and they did him so dirty.
A movie that’s a metaphor for prejudice/racism/etc did the black guy dirty.
Yep. This was some white nonsense for real
And literally 2 minutes before that, the long, lingering shot on Darwin with Shaw’s “live like slaves” line. *rolls eyes*
And they cut the after-credits scene where he was SUPPOSED to come back in his ultimate form.
It was complete bullshit.
Not to mention the only other Black person on the team became a villain.
That movie is such a goddamn mess
Haha, so fun fact: in X-factor the team runs into Darwin, and at first they are confused because he’s looks different then they remembered, his skin is lighter! They discuss this, and come to the conclusion that his power detected racism as a threat to his life and lightened his skin so that he’d pass as white.
When he joins the group and feels like he has a safer and more welcoming community his skin starts to darken again.
It’s nice when X-men and spinoffs remember that the mutants are supposed to be a metaphor.
Petition to sit down all the people who make coma theories about Adventure Time and tell them “listen, this fucking show is about the last human living in a post-apocalyptic world where deadly magic has been reawakened following a global thermonuclear war that wiped out the rest of the human species, how much fucking darker do you want it to be”
Even though I thought my first Creative Writing professor was kind of a douche, he made a good point about this. One of our first assignments was to write in this eerie, otherworldly style (we were mimicking a specific author whose name escapes me), so we had to write about eerie otherworldly things happening. It’s no exaggeration to say that more than half the class had a “big reveal” where we find out that the story’s strange events and themes are all in the mind of some person in an insane asylum, or someone having a drug trip.
My professor said something like, “you just successfully wrote a world that feels separate from our own, but got frightened last minute and shoe-horned in normalcy. You showed that you were afraid to commit to something different and interesting.” Though I’m typically a contrarian and a piece of garbage, I am inclined to agree with my professor. I feel like people who write coma theories and the like are afraid to accept that the world of the story is separate from our own. They like everything wrapped up in this crazy little realism box where nothing out of the ordinary happens in fiction.
