Clothes, Friends, and Fucking: Roses are red, that much is true, but violets are purple, not fucking blue feels-for-the-fictional I have been waiting for this post all my life. marzipanandminutiae They are indeed purple, But one thing you've missed: The concept of purple Didn't always exist. Some cultures lack names For a color, you see. Hence good old Homer And his "wine-dark sea. A usage so quaint, A phrasing so old, For verses of romance Is sheer fucking gold. So roses are red Violets once were called blue. I'm hugely pedantic But what else is new? ineptshieldmaid My friend you're not wrong About Homer's wine-ey sea! Colours are a matter Of cultural contingency Words are in flux And meanings they drift But the word purple You've given short shrift. The concept of purple, My friends, is old And refers to a pigment once precious as gold. By crushing up molluscs From the wine-dark sea You make a dye: Imperial decree Meant that in Rome, to wear purpura was a privilege reserved For only the emperor! The word purple for clothes so fancy, Entered English By the ninth century Why then are voilets Not purple in song? The dye from this mollusc, known for so long Is almost magenta; More red than blue The concept of purple is old, and yet new The dye is red, So this might be true: Roses are purple And violets are blue squeeful While this song makes me merry Tyrian purple dyes many a hue From magenta to berry And a true purple too But fun as it is to watch this poetic race The answer is staring you right in the face Roses are red and violets are blue Because nothing fucking rhymes with purple Its long, but its good

Ass, Complex, and Dwayne Johnson: gulag-nietzschean I LEARNED RECENTLY THAT PLATO WON THE GOLD MEDAL IN THE OLYMPICS FOR WRESTLING THREE TIMES. THIS PUTSA NEW PERSPECTIVE ON THINGS. I ALWAYS IMAGINED PLATO TO BE FRAIL AND MISSHAPEN BUT HE MUST HAVE BEEN FRICKEN RIPPED. I WONDER IF ARISTOTLE EVER FELT ANXIETY ABOUT GETTING PHYSICALLY (I.E. NOT JUST METAPHYSICALLY) DISMANTLED BY PLATO PLATO WAS PROBABLY PISSED OFF BY AT LEAST A HANDFUL OF QUESTIONS ARISTOTLE ASKED HIM. ARISTOTLE WAS A LITERAL GENIUS TOO. IMAGINE PLATO LECTURING AND WRITING ON A BLACKBOARD AND ARISTOTLE THROWING A COMMENT OUT THERE ABOUT SOME COMPLEX MISSTEP IN PLATO'S LOGIC AND PLATO'S CHALK JUST SNAPS AND ARISTOTLE'S TESTICLES SUCK WAY BACK UP TO WHERE THEY DROPPED FROM, THEN PLATO IN A BLUR APPEARS BESIDE ARISTOTLE SITTING AT HIS DESK AND HE PICKS HIM UP AND SUPLEXES HIS MACEDONIAN ASS. txwatson given the content of a lot of Plato's conclusions I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Plato responded to a lot of reasonable criticisms with "Fight me" and that was the end of it. abotl We're not actually sure whether Plato is his real name! Some people speculate that, because Platon means "broad" in Greek, this was actually his wrestling nick name. Basically, it's like Dwayne Johnson became a famous philosopher and everyone still called him "The Rock". blerdityreblogged More and more I wish we kind of had time traveling capabilities. lolhistoryposts Now I can't stop thinking about Plato looking like The Rock pollydoodles Now I can't stop thinking about a film where The Rock plays Plato.

THIS IS IT, TRUE BELIEVER! SOME CALL IT BLOATED SOME CALL IT OFFENSIVE--WE CALL IT AN EPIC EVENT IN THE MIGHTY MARVEL TRADITION! (REDACTED FOR THE SAKE OF THEIR DIGNITY) PROUDLY PRESENTS...- the-arachnid-king: dealanexmachina: iithoughtofyoutoday: fandomshatepeopleofcolor: Marvel made this shit (note how most of the fans in it are brown). Marvel saw that people didn’t like “Captain is a n*zi” but reacted in that way.  links: https://twitter.com/spacetwinks/status/921773022666780672 https://twitter.com/thalestral/status/922083006730432512 submitted by anon ________________ thanks anon! So for those that don’t get it they’re being clearly racist and anti semitic in their depiction of the people that didn’t like Hydra!Cap. mod m You remember Nick Spencer, right?   Anyway this is his incredibly mature and measured response to his critics. Imagine being this terrible.  Note - this is from Marvel’s Not Brand Ecch! #14 out November 15th Friendly reminder that Marvel blamed fans, and later retailers, for their poor sales. Friendly reminder that Marvel blamed diversity for their poor sales. Friendly reminder that Marvel created the milkshake controversy after being rightly accused of not having as diverse a creative team as they claimed. Friendly reminder that Marvel tried to partner with Northrupp Grumman, the fifth largest weapons manufacturer in the United States, and nearly released a piece of propaganda to children on behalf of said weapons manufacturer. And they only cancelled it due to the massive backlash they received. Friendly reminder that Marvel’s X-Men Gold artist tried to hide an antisemitic message in his art and it somehow made it past the editors. Friendly reminder that Marvel has been publishing poorly written and poorly drawn comics that people aren’t buying for said reasons.

Candy, Elf, and Facebook: oo0 Verizon LTE 12:49 PM Search Starbucks 3 hrs . Hey Starbucks, as the unicorn frappuccino was so popular, thought I'd pitch a few suggestions for fraps based on other mythical creatures: Dragon frappuccino: Made with dragonfruit, cinnamon, and fiery hot chiles. A shameless ploy to acquire gold. Werewolf frappuccino: Seems like a normal chocolate frap (werewolves love chocolate) but the caffeine doesn't kick in until the next full moon. And boy howdy, does it kick in. Mermaid frappuccino: Extra foam and sea salt caramel drizzle. Comes with a free Danish in honor of Hans Christian Anderson. Centaur: Has an oatmeal raisin cookie crumble crust. Oats for the horse and raisins for the wine-lovina human Whinned cream is Write a comment.. Post o Verizon LTE 12:49 PM Q Searclh Fairy frappuccino: A delightful delicate flavor of honeysuckle and lavender, it has the unfortunate effect of making you fall in love with the next live creature that you see. Pixie frappuccino: MIXED WITH TGE POWDER OF WITH 15 PIXIE STICKS Elf frappuccino: Made with the most important food groups- candy, candy canes, candy corn, and syrup. Keebler cookie crumbles Hobbit frappuccino: Only served in size tall. Get one for breakfast and get a second one free! Ogre frappuccino: Looks green and putrid on the outside, but has layers of different flavors that will Smash your Mouth Zombie frappuccino: like a normal frap, but with SEVERAL extra shots of espresso Write a comment... Post ooo Verizon LTE 12:49 PM Q Searclh Wizard frappuccino: Butterbeer Witch frappuccino: You'd think it would be the same as the wizard frap, but it has eye of newt and toe of frog #everydaysexism Yeti frappuccino: Tastes like a lemon snow cone, with Himalayan pink salt Alien frappuccino: They actually do have this in the Starbucks at one government building in New Mexico, but it's on the secret menu Ghost frappuccino: Zero calories. Probably just blended ice. Poltergeist frappuccino: Hurls itself against the wall after you pay for it Vampire frappuccino: Blood. It's just blood. 2 Shares Write a comment...

Post jackskellington84: sophettestuff: sanjha-a-kitani: schmergo: The official Starbucks facebook account reviewed my pitches for new Frappuccinos based on mythical creatures to follow the unicorn one I love how it starts out with the dragon one which could theoretically be done and then just devolves into “it’s just blood”. I know right jsjsjsj I love this too much

Dogs, LinkedIn, and Phone: starrose17: sassyhail: chocolatequeennk: afleshjackforblainecharitydrive: dbvictoria: 25% of the people have a 4th cone and see colors as they are Given the sudden interest for the color of dresses and vision, here some of the fascinating findings we did recently. The color nuances we see depend on the number and distribution of cones (=color receptors) in our eye. You can check this rainbow: how many color nuances do you count? You see less than 20 color nuances: you are a dichromats, like dogs, which means you have 2 types of cones only. You are likely to wear black, beige, and blue. 25% of the population is dichromat. You see between 20 and 32 color nuances: you are a trichromat, you have 3 types of cones (in the purple/blue, green and red area). You enjoy different colors as you can appreciate them. 50% of the population is trichromat. You see between 33 and 39 colors: you are a tetrachromat, like bees, and have 4 types of cones (in the purple/blue, green, red plus yellow area). You are irritated by yellow, so this color will be nowhere to be found in your wardrobe. 25% of the population is tetrachromat. You see more than 39 color nuances: come on, you are making up things! there are only 39 different colors in the test and probably only 35 are properly translated by your computer screen anyway :) It is highly probable that people who have an additional 4th cone do not get tricked by blue/black or white/gold dresses, no matter the background light ;) (x) I see 21 colors. I had no idea there are so many more. I see 35-39 colours, and I hate the colour yellow. That was actually what made me curious enough to stop scrolling and count. Who knew there was a scientific reason behind my colour preferences?So the idea here is that what I see as annoyingly, garishly bright, most people don’t see as clearly, and that’s why it’s “cheerful?” (I’ve never understood that description of yellow.) I barely saw 18 or 19. Dang :/ Seriously? I see all 39 extremely easily. 39, but only just ( then again, I am looking at this through a very damaged phone screen )
