date a boy who notices things. date a boy who will remove any threat to you. date a boy who will lie in wait for hours in a gilly suit to surveil after receiving a love letter. date a boy who will hold you at gunpoint to find out what “the purpose” of such a letter might be.  date a boy who will detonate anything that seems out of place because that is the most effective method of disposal.

date Sagara Sousuke

Best moment in the whole series.

The Boulder is over his conflicted feelings.

In an alternate reality where “The Last Airbender” movie was good, I like to believe that in the Book 2 movie, they cast Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as The Boulder without a lick of irony.

Kickstarter to redo the Avatar the Last Airbender movie, and then have the second one with The Rock in it for this reason because THAT’S THE BEST FUCKING IDEA ANY FANDOM HAS EVER HAD

A sensational breakthrough: the first bionic hand that can feel
The first bionic hand that allows an amputee to feel what they are touching will be transplanted later this year in a pioneering operation that could introduce a new generation of artificial limbs with sensory perception.
The patient is an unnamed man in his 20s living in Rome who lost the lower part of his arm following an accident, said Silvestro Micera of the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne in Switzerland.
The wiring of his new bionic hand will be connected to the patient’s nervous system with the hope that the man will be able to control the movements of the hand as well as receiving touch signals from the hand’s skin sensors.
Dr Micera said that the hand will be attached directly to the patient’s nervous system via electrodes clipped onto two of the arm’s main nerves, the median and the ulnar nerves.
This should allow the man to control the hand by his thoughts, as well as receiving sensory signals to his brain from the hand’s sensors. It will effectively provide a fast, bidirectional flow of information between the man’s nervous system and the prosthetic hand.
“This is real progress, real hope for amputees. It will be the first prosthetic that will provide real-time sensory feedback for grasping,” Dr Micera said.
“It is clear that the more sensory feeling an amputee has, the more likely you will get full acceptance of that limb,” he told the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Boston.
“We could be on the cusp of providing new and more effective clinical solutions to amputees in the next year,” he said.

DO YOU PEOPLE EVEN REALIZE HOW AWESOME THIS IS???
TO DO THIS MEANS WE CAN FINALLY STITCH AXONS (LONG PART OF NEURON OR NERVE CELL THAT TRANSPORTS SIGNALS FROM JUNCTIONS BACK TO THE BRAIN) BACK TOGETHER
DO YOU EVEN UNDERSTAND HOW IMPOSSIBLE THAT WAS? TO ALIGN THE DAMAGED AXONS BACK TOGETHER WAS IMPOSSIBLE 
WITH THIS BREAK THROUGH YOU COULD EVENTUALLY WORK UP TO GIVING THE ABILITY TO WALK AND MOVE AGAIN TO THOSE WHO CUT THEIR SPINAL CORD IN AN ACCIDENT THIS IS BEAUTIFUL
THIS. IS. AMAZING.

Also: Cyborgs.

Not sure who the fuck decided to crop this,
The original artist of this design is Sarah Andersen.
Please don’t steal other artist’s work!!!!


As the original creator of this piece, let me explain why stuff like this is bad for artists.
When someone edits an illustration, it hurts the artist because they had a specific intention and you took that away from them.  A person spent a long time trying to make something look a certain way, and with two clicks in photoshop you can undo all of that work.  To put it bluntly, you ruined it.  And when someone worked hard to create a very specific image, it’s sort of painful to see it being spread around as a downgrade version.
Some artists allow people to use their work in other media, such as collages or glitch art.   Sometimes they want to make minor changes, like cropping. That’s okay!  But it’s really as easy as just asking the artist and seeing if it’s alright.
I also see my comics edited a lot.  Specifically, people will take out my signature and add a url to their website. Frankly, that’s just selfish.  That’s my comic and my idea, so you shouldn’t redirect traffic to your website. 
Also, you really shouldn’t be taking traffic away from artists.  The starving artists thing isn’t just a cliche; it’s very hard to profit from your work.  So you can at least let the artists keep their credit, right?
Regarding credit: Sometimes people don’t take credit away maliciously, they just really don’t know where something came from.  So obviously I’m not going to attack those people, but there are ways of finding the original artist.
Here’s a link to a tumblr that explains more of this, and has a post explaining how to find the original creator of a piece.

reminder to folks not to dress up as a ‘mental patient’ this halloween, mentally ill people are not costumes and the dehumanisation and abuse of us in hospitals is not something to be used for your amusement

seeing people in costume straight-jackets and acting “insane” for laughs can also trigger a lot of people
