Look, Honda. Don’t try to sell me a line of bullshit here.

There’s no goddamn way a centaur will fit in a Honda Fit. So stop lying.

It’s all a question of how many pieces you put it in first. Chopped finely enough, you can fit a centaur into just about ANYTHING.

Salutations Publr friends and fiends,

We often receive printer samples of books that end up collecting dust on shelves. These are blank, perfect bound books that inspire and intimidate, but I still love them. I’m not sure if anyone else has the same fascination and love of blank books I do, but if you do – I HAVE GOOD NEWS! I’m giving away these three beautiful bound blanks books.

There are three books, pictured above:

- 9”x10” Hard Cover, text gloss interior pages (aprox. 80 – 120 pages)

-  9.5” x 7.5” Paperback, text gloss interior pages (aprox. 75 – 100 pages)

 -  5.25” x 4.25” paperback, matte interior pages (aprox. 150 – 200 pages)

Rules are simple:

You must like books. Any form. I’d love to hear about the books you love, your love of books, or books in general!

Reblogs are your entry!

Reblogs count up to 3 times!

No giveaway blogs please, but sharing is caring!

Three winners: The first person chosen gets to pick which one they want, I will number two their preference of the remaining and the third person gets left overs!

You must have an open ask box so I can request your information and be willing to share an address with me where I can ship.

I’ll be running this through October 14th – because Tuesdays need more spice to them.

Let the games begin!

These are awesome! My bf says he would write/draw in them, but I don’t think I’d let him. They’re just so perfect and pristine. 

a discussion on sexual orientation
me: *explaining various sexual orientations to a classmate*
classmate: wait, what's polyamory?
me: well, it's when someone has more than one intimate relationship at a time with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved.
professor: *overhears from front of class*
professor: that is d i s g u s t i n g
me: *defensively* um, actually, no it's--
professor: how DARE they put a greek prefix on a latin root like that?! What right do they have to decimate my beautiful antiquated languages?!?! GREEK AND LATIN DO NOT FRATERNIZE THIS IS LIKE THAT STUPID ROMANTIC SUBPLOT BETWEEN THAT DWARF AND THAT ELF IN THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!
me: ....
me: ....
me: ....
professor: it should be polyerosy

Bisexual community: We define bisexuality as attraction to people of the same gender and different genders.
Biphobes: Aaaaactually bisexuality means "attracted to men and women" because the prefix "bi" means "two".
Bisexual community: Okay, that's a really narrow and finicky way of examining things, but yes the prefix bi means two. Which means that bisexual people are attracted to two different gender groups. Like, for example, people of the same gender as them and people of a different gender than them. Which is what we said. Our definition of our own sexual orientation is still right even with your narrow and finicky standards applied to it.
Biphobes: Sorry, I didn't catch any of that. I have my entire head and neck firmly lodged up my own ass. Bi means two. Bisexual means

Wonderful

Love these

There used to be a tumblr like this. I miss it. I’m glad these are here to remind me of this sort of wonderful thing.

You mean this tumblr right here? fluxmachine's stuff is BRILLIANT, and I love seeing all the attention his work's been getting lately.

CNN has obtained a video, taken shortly after Michael Brown was shot, that shows a contractor who had been working near the shooting site describing the incident in a manner that matches other eyewitness testimony—raising his arms and shouting “man, he was going like this,” as if to suggest that Brown had adopted a posture of surrender before he died.

Two contractors are shown in the video, and both have spoken to CNN; one also spoke previously to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and one to Fox affiliate KTVI. The individual who is shouting and raising his arms in in the video told CNN that “the cop didn’t say get on the ground. He just kept shooting.” The other said that he saw officer Darren Wilson “chasing” Brown, that Wilson fired a shot at Brown while Brown’s back was turned, and that Brown raised his hands before he died, though it’s not clear at what point the witness saw Brown’s hands raised. (For what it’s worth, it seems like the worker who spoke to KTVI is the one wearing a pink shirt in the video and that the worker who spoke to the Post-Dispatch is wearing a green shirt.)

The CNN account notes that the workers are not from Ferguson and did not know the Brown family—a detail that could increase their perceived objectivity vis a vis witnesses from Brown’s neighborhood.

33 Days since Mike Brown’s murder, and his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. How much more evidence is needed to make a fucking arrest?!  #farfromover #staywoke #ArrestDarrenWilson 

What’s even more fucked up is that these two contractors—both white—say they fear for their jobs by speaking up. Just goes to show how far white St. Louis (and white America, by extension) will go to protect the idea of black-man-as-thug—and the rightness of murdering said thugs.

If I’m your tumblr crush, send me $50.

Yes, it’s another shameless self-plug. Because having food would be nice.

Argh. OK, in all seriousness, I hate late summer/early fall when it comes to running your own retail business, because no one is buying a damn thing hardly. And while the few commissions I’ve gotten in have helped a great deal, we’re once again at that point where there’s not enough money coming in for regular daily life, much less business operations.

So today, I urge the lot of you (because I HATE asking for handouts- I’d much rather be able to put something in your hands as a way of saying thanks if nothing else.) to go hit Tormented Artifacts and pick up whatever it is you may have been thinking about ordering. Or maybe it’s something from the one-offs collection that I put together- a lot of those items are still available right here. Either way, please, if you’ve been holding back for any reason, now’s the time to order stuff up.

US students will be able to shield themselves during school shootings with the latest in body armour, the Bodyguard Blanket
http://goo.gl/WwvECT
Are fucking kidding me? I have been sitting at home and constantly watching the news after the events of yesterday. For those of you who are wondering, I am a junior at REYNOLDS HIGH SCHOOL! I was there when the shooter kept running in the halls trying to open the doors and get in. I was there in the dark praying and crying while my librarian kept saying ” they’ll have to kill me before they touch my kids” I have known her for three years, her determination to keep us safe broke her heart. Seeing this, that little children need protection in school. Are we sending kids to a battlefield? I have three little brothers ranging from 5-10, and still people have the nerve to speak about the second amendment? Really? I can’t even type anymore. I’m so disgusted and frustrated. When will you realize that it’s important to have gun control? When a shooter is pointing a gun at your child? Is that when you’ll realize that guns aren’t something to be kept around. People say it’s a free country but honesty, this country is more oppressed and diseased than any other country.

Show me ONE instance where gun control and gun free zones prevented school shootings.



Let me tell you guys a story. In 1996, in a little town in Australia called Port Arthur, a gunman killed 35 and injured 23. This place was a tourist attraction, with plenty of visitors and locals going about their business. 35 people died.That’s 35 marriages, anniversaries, birthdays or uni degrees. 35 people left Port Arthur in body bags.At the time, we had a pretty conservative government, and the Prime Minister at the time (in hindsight) was kind of a dick. But within two weeks of the shooting, Howard instituted a massive reform and buyback of all firearms. 
But it must be a statistical flaw, you say, there weren’t that many massacres before 1996, right? No, WRONG. In the eighteen years leading up to Port Arthur, there had been 13 mass shootings. 
But April, you ask, this couldn’t possibly have worked could it? Wouldn’t it only have reduced the mass shootings? WRONG.Since 1996, there have been ZERO mass shootings. That’s right, ZERO. FUCKING ZILCH. There have been scattered homicides, however:
How many schools have been raided and children murdered? NONE.How many film buffs have been murdered in their seats? NONE.How many innocent lives have been lost to the barrel of a gun? NONE.
On top of this, homicides involving the use of guns, and youth suicide involving the use of guns has declined dramatically, by up to 60%
Australia, however much the environment tries to kill you, is a safe haven, and you can walk the streets with 99% assurance that you won’t fall victim to a drive by shooting.
Your move, America.

in 1987 a lone gunman killed 16 people, wounded 15 and then committed suicide. within six months the uk government passed an amendment to the firearms act effectively outlawing all high calibre, high frequency, high capacity rifles and shotguns.
in 1996 another lone gunman killed 16 children and their teacher, and then committed suicide. again within six months the uk government outlawed all handguns. special dispensation had to be issued in order to hold shooting competition as part of the 2012 olympic games, and british hopefuls had to train overseas.
you can legally own certain types of shotgun, .22 calibre rifles over a certain barrel length, and antiques. that’s it.
in the nigh-on twenty years since the uk has had one mass shooting. one. and we’re down to about 30 gun-related deaths annually.
there is not one example of gun control laws reducing mass shootings and gun-related homicide. there are dozens. it literally works every time. the usa is the anomaly not because it didn’t work but because it hasn’t tried.
