Fire, Fucking, and I Bet: eden kin @uravily Today at 12:02 AM half hot half cold fuyumi au? rabieszawa Today at 12:03 AM YES but wait if she was would natsu and shouto exist eden kin @uravily Today at 12:04 AM like imagine. shes had a fire quirk this whole time, but her mom taught her immediately to suppress it as best she could, to the point that she nearly forgot she even had it. shes never used it her entire life, and sometimes part of her thinks those little memories of wisps of flame and her mother showing her how to coat both her hands in ice are just dreams. then one day, endeavor goes too far, does something that crosses a line and it all just bursts out of her nix @toshinkos Today at 12:04 AM oh? tell us More eden kin @uravily Today at 12:05 AM im coming up with this as i write but it like. i could even see her convincing herself that her ability to easily melt her ice and things like that are just a very minor manifestation of the fire that doesn't do much, but its just the remnants of her quirk that she doesnt use. its probably not as powerful as her ice, not as 50/50 as shouto's (esp because she hasnt trained with it beyond shoving it away) but those are sure as fuck real flames imagine shouto teaching her how to use both in conjunction nix @toshinkos YES Today at 12:06 AM olivier armstrong can [REDACTED] Today at 12:06 AM TeLL ME MORE TELL ME MORE eden kin @uravily Today at 12:07 AM itd be such a particular struggle for her too bc shouto has always had fire, and while he considers it his fathers power rather than his own for most of his life it's still a major part of who he is fuyumi, meanwhile, has always thought of herself as ice and snovw and then suddenly she caught the fucking curtains on fire again i bet after it first comes up too shes suddenly got the control of a toddler over it bc she kept such a tight lid on it that once its off she lost all of that control since she has no idea how to do it in halves basically this is jsut me like shes got red in her hair... incher sting.... rei would likely try and get shouto to hide his too since fuyumi managed but since his is a perfect 50/50 split rather than fuyumi's 60/40 he didnt have the scales tipped enough to suppress it todorokifuyumi: let me tell you about my new au

Christmas, Church, and Fire: writing-prompt-s Your church-going, God-worshipping sister adopted a small child and you re excited to see them. But when you do, the child is a menace. They're throwing things everywhere, setting furniture on fire with seemingly nothing, chanting in Latin to summon demons, but the weirdest thing is that your sister doesn't seem to mind mababees "You literally adopted the antichrist, Anne. What the fuck." "Yeah, I knew when I saw him at the orphanage. I figured if the kid had some decent fucking parenting that we could avoid the whole 'Revelations' shite. Nasty business, that." George, who's name has been kindly changed from Damien, approaches his new mother with a huge spider in his hands. It promptly bursts into flames. "Good job, love. Now go find the rest." George's face makes no expression, but his eyes shine when he recieves a pat on the head for his efforts. talieclandestine As the months go by, George seems to settle down. He adjusts to school, friends, and the positive reinforcement Anne gives him. She encourages the good he does, even though the powers he uses aren't "good". When she gets calls from the school, it's about a rambunctious boy that won't sit still. Not a destroyer of the world and innocence. It's at Christmas dinner, that you let slip your amazement to your mother. How good Anne is for him and how he's improved a lot. Still summoning hellhounds for games of fetch, though "Oh, he'll forget how to do that when he falls in love the first time," Your mother laughs, smiling wide. "How do you know that," you ask bewildered "Because, you did The Story of the Antichrist

Being Alone, Anna, and Apparently: CNN @CNN CAN Plan Bee' is a personal robotic bee designed to mimic how bees pollinate flowers and crops cnn.it/21QKbuY jaküb @sadandchildish instead of saving the environment and helping actual bees let's spend billions on robots that do what bees would do for free CNN @CNN Plan Bee' is a personal robotic bee designed to mimic how bees pollinate flowers and crops cnn.it/21QKbuY chuppa-thingy: curlicuecal: pts-m-d: thetrippytrip: dont you just love capitalism..   Black Mirror predicted this we are all goona die my god but I get mad when someone flippantly dismisses important scientific progress because you can make it sound dumb by framing it the right way. For a start, of course a lot of science sounds dumb.  Science is all in the slogging through the minutiae, the failures, the tedious process of filling in the blank spaces on the map because it ain’t ’t glamorous, but if someone doesn’t do it, no one gets to know for sure what’s there. Someone’s gotta spend their career measuring fly genitalia under a microscope. Frankly, I’m grateful to the person who is tackling that tedium, because if they didn’t, I might have to, and I don’t wanna. But let’s talk about why we should care about this particular science and spend money on it. (And I’ll even answer without even glancing at the article.) Off the top of my head? -advances in robotics -advances in miniature robotics -advances in flight technology -advantages in simulating and understanding the mechanics and programming of small intelligences -ability to grow crops in places uninhabitable by insects (space? cold/hot? places where honeybees are non-native and detrimental to the ecosystem?) -ability to improve productivity density of crops and feed more people -less strain on bees, who do poorly when forced to pollinate monocultures of low nutrition plants -ability to run tightly controlled experiments on pollination, on the effects of bees on plant physiology, on ecosystem dynamics, etc -fucking robot bees, my friend -hahaha think how confused those flowers must be Also worth keeping in mind? People love, love, love framing science in condescending and silly sounding terms as an excuse to cut funding to vital programs. *Especially* if it’s also associated with something (gasp) ‘inappropriate’, like sex or ladyparts. This is why research for a lot of women’s issues, lgbtq+ issues, minorities’ issues, and vulnerable groups in general’s issues tends to lag so far behind the times. This is why some groups are pushing so hard to cut funding for climate change research these days. Anything that’s acquired governmental funding has been through an intensely competitive, months-to-years long screening by EXPERTS IN THE FIELD who have a very good idea what research is likely to be most beneficial to that field and fill a needed gap. Trust me.  The paperwork haunts my nightmares. So, we had a joke in my lab: “Nice work, college boy.” It was the phrase for any project that you could spend years and years working on and end up with results that could be summed up on a single, pretty slide with an apparently obvious graph. The phrase was taken from something a grower said at a talk my advisor gave as a graduate student: “So you proved that plants grow better when they’re watered? Nice work, college boy.” But like, the thing is? There’s always more details than that. And a lot of times it’s important that somebody questions our assumptions.  A labmate of mine doing very similar research demonstrated that our assumptions about the effect of water stress on plant fitness have been wrong for years because *nobody had thought to separate out the different WAYS a plant can be water stressed.* (Continuously, in bursts, etc.). And it turns out these ways have *drastically different effects* with drastically different measures required for response to them to keep from losing lots of money and resources in agriculture. Nice work, college boy. :p Point the second: surprise! Anna Haldewang is an industrial design student.  She developed this in her product design class.  And, as far as I can tell, she has had no particular funding at all for this project, much less billions of dollars.  ‘grats, Anna, you FUCKING ROCK. ps: On a lighter note, summarizing research to make it sound stupid is both easy AND fun. Check out @lolmythesis – I HIGHLY RECOMMEND. :33 Okay, so I actually know Anna. She is my classmate and my friend, and I know this project quite well. And I could not have put the above statement any better. Here’s the thing guys, bumblebees are endangered, but they have a very important roll in our ecosystem. While we are doing everything we can to stabalize the bee populations, we also have to make sure that an important job is being done in our ecosystem. This drone was a conceptual way to aid that as we work to stabalize bee populations. I have never been so mad at Tumblr before. This is a huge accomplishment for a student, let alone a female in our male dominated industry. Stop shitting on everything, it doesn’t make you cool. Oh and actually read into things before you go tearing them apart.
