There is now a measles outbreak in New York. A whole ward of cancer patients currently undergoing chemotherapy have been exposed to it. Imagine fighting cancer for years only to die because some jackass didn’t vaccinate their brat and you caught measles.
Ugh. I work in pharma and it is so frustrating! We managed to nearly eradicate diseases like measles, mumps, ruebella… not to mention polio whooping cough and tons of others.
And then some asshole decides to claim that vaccinations cause autism and now there are wingnut parents out there refusing to vaccinate their kids. (let’s not even look into the modern trend of hospital birth and the drugs that are pumped into mothers during childbirth now. The Business of Being Born has some interesting things to say on the subject.)
You know why we have these vaccinations? Because they kill people. I know, it’s crazy to think of it, but chicken pox kills. And it isn’t just their kids they put at risk with this behavior- obviously immuno compromised people everywhere are now being exposed.
It’s not fair to them and it is extremely irritating to me. </rant>
And I know it’s true that visions are seldom all they seem,
But if I know you, I know what you’ll do,
You’ll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream…
Awwww you know my role model!
I think what attracts me to pairings like Stiles and Derek, but really any of the hard-road, snarky banter, people with history kind of pairings is the difference between young love, love on first sight and easy affection and the brutal realisation that I’m not that kind - in all senses of the word.
I’m damaged and old and mean. If I had teeth and claws to rip and tear, I might use them.
I identify with a lot of characters, but none more than Derek Hale. The idea that he might have a happy ending, a queer happy ending in fact, with a sharp, bright, but also mean kid who fits perfectly in all the hollows in Derek’s self, it makes me feel better about being who I am.
Derek and Stiles fit me. Their damages mean I can see myself there. Their sarcasm means I can hear myself. I can feel them under my skin, both parts, in different ways.
I want to see it, desperately. It’s selfish and I don’t care. I want it. I want to see their struggle, their growth and their happy ending.
I want to see Derek Hale fall in love, really fall in love, with a boy he shouldn’t like but does, their trust growing into something solid and dependable, their lives intertwining.
They’d be amazing together.
from Knight to King
# the king is the weakest piece until the endgame# after playing a pretty passive role throughout the entire game before the king becomes an offensive piece at the end of it# checkmate happens when the king is about to get captured and cannot escape it# which is when he has to make a move to TRY and escape it# there are three ways to remove a king from check:# 1) to move the king to an adjacent square which is not being threatened;# 2) to put a piece between the king in check and the attacking piece in order to break the line of threat;# 3) TO CAPTURE THE ATTACKING PIECE.# basically what all of this is telling me is that after not playing any significant role this season so far# derek is gonna become a super important factor in fighting the nogitsune and getting stiles back# and if i’m getting all of this right (which i’m probably not but you know)# then there’s gonna be an intense fight between stiles and derek (and there IS gonna be one we know that for sure)# and then derek will have to choose between backing down and running away# putting someone else between himself and stiles in order to save himself# and capturing stiles until he or someone else figures out a way to get the nogitsune the hell out of him# guess which one derek hale is going to choose# oh man i’m getting into this waaay too much aren’t i# SORRY I JUST WANT DEREK TO BE ESSENTIAL IN STILES’ RESCUE OKAY YES I’M /THAT/ SHIPPER WHAT YOU GONNA DO ABOUT IT
Sterek Campaign stream.
Due to problems with our previous stream channel, we decided to create a new one for the rest of the season. Make sure you are at the twscstream channel tonight for a new episode of Teen Wolf!
this is actually a cool idea
what the fuck
Harmless, non-illegal cannibalism!!
what the FUCK
This was a central factor in some crappy Netflix movie I watched, Antiviral. Steaks grown from celebrity cell cultures.
I am literally only getting a dial tone while trying to parse this.
What the actual fuck.
I have always wondered what human flesh tasted like
don’t look at me like that
This is terrifying, and if you don’t think so… that’s also frightening. WTF? Who thinks this is OK to want to consume someone because they are a celebrity?
Maybe there are the harmless Hannibal wannabees who are just excited over the guilt free cannibalism- a sentence I never ever thought I would type. But this person who created it isn’t just making synthetic human meat, they’re making synthetic *celebrity* meat.
As if we are entitled to even their flesh as fans.
Celebrity meat- for when devouring the paparazzi photos and other privacy invasion just isn’t enough.
