Average size mannequin with average size woman.
The problem, in one picture.
I never realized until seeing this picture that my interpretation of an average size woman has become REALLY SKEWED oh my god I wanna cry
art students before a final is due
The full lineup, now with Poison Ivy and Supergirl! Sorry for the slight repost, I think seeing them together makes the overall unifying design elements clearer (like the weird 90’s vibe haha).
Street clothes super heroes/villains!
#HeroesNeverDie One year later version!
It’s been nearly a year! And both fandoms are still going strong!
So to commemorate this, how about a Saturday full of watching YJ and GLTAS, and chatting with old friends? We’d start with watching the pilots of both shows, and go from there!
Plus, it’d be great if we could get the tag #HereoesNeverDie trending on twitter again, to get more people into it too!
When: Saturday March 15th @ 10am EDT [also North America just had their daylight savings time kick in, so please keep that in mind if your clocks didn’t change]
Afterwards, if people want to stick around, I’ll be streaming other miscellaneous eps from both shows chosen by popular vote!
I’ll also be posting what eps we’re watching in case you want to tag along but watch your own version :)
Where will it be: As always, livestream!
No need to RSVP, just show up!
I’ll remind everyone Saturday morning, ten minutes before it starts!
Also, please keep in mind that I have a limit of 50 people, so arrive at a reasonable time so that you don’t miss it!
If anyone has any questions, feel free to send me an ask!
The original idea for the celebration was by pepperedfarts, so credit goes to him!
Plasmonics research could have vast implications on many fields from miniaturizing future gadgets to invisibility
University of Cincinnati researchers are discovering how to manipulate light to one day better view the world’s tiniest objects through a super-lens, as well as how to hide an object in plain sight. Masoud Kaveh-Baghbadorani, a doctoral student in the University of Cincinnati’s physics program, will present this research on March 4, at the American Physical Society Meeting in Denver.
The research focuses on exciting collective oscillations of metal electrons called plasmons, and on directing light through nanometer-thin metal films, about a thousand times thinner than a human hair. The result could empower integrated circuits or facilitate a super-lens with seven times the strength of a standard microscope, opening further research into fields such as studying microorganisms and viruses.
Other applications involve bouncing light around an object by cloaking it with a metamaterial film. Instead of the object reflecting light and thus causing it to be seen, the light manipulation can make it invisible.

"How can you walk away from something and still come back to it?"
"Walk around the world."
This is something that slips past the Western viewers- it looks like it’s reaching out for Chihiro, in a malicious way, to the Western viewers. It’s what I thought growing up.
However, now, that I know that it’s a way of signalling for someone to ‘Come here!’ in Japan, the scene takes on a whole new meaning.
That spirit knows that if Chihiro doesn’t eat the food, she will disappear. And it knows if it offers the food, she cannot be cursed as a gluttonous pig because it wouldn’t have been stolen.
Just a unique take when you have all of the context.
And also, the red lanterns spell out ‘おいで’ which translates to “Come here” or “Come in” :)
Why Russia Can’t Afford Another Cold War
Russian troops pour over a border. An autocratic Russian leader blames the United States and unspecified “radicals and nationalists” for meddling. A puppet leader pledges fealty to Moscow.
It’s no wonder the crisis in Ukraine this week drew comparisons to Hungary in 1956 and Czechoslovakia in 1968 or that a chorus of pundits proclaimed the re-emergence of the Cold War.
But there’s at least one major difference between then and now: Moscow has a stock market.

the fact that people think in different accents really gets to me
