Los seres humanos no nacen para siempre el día en que sus madres los alumbran, sino que la vida los obliga a parirse a sí mismos una y otra vez.
- Gabriel García Márquez (March 6, 1927-April 17th, 2014)
[human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but that life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves]
No puedo creer que se nos fué el Gabo. 😭😭😭😭
Who wants a silver axe or three?
I have 40 silver axes. I have reason to believe that there are a few people on here that really want silver axes to make cute patterned stumps in their towns!
For those that don’t know, a silver axe will ALWAYS create a little pattern on the stump of a tree chopped with it.
- Reblog this post, like it, stare at it, print it out and stick it to your cat…whatever. Just don’t spam, also giveaway blogs won’t win.
- Every day starting April 14 until I run out of axes, I will give away 5! If I get more axes, the giveaway goes on!
- Each day will have 3 winners: One person gets 3 axes, and two people get 1 axe each.
- I will choose the winners randomly. You can only win once!
- You don’t have to be following me but I’d love it if you did!
- You have to be able to give me your friend code and pick up the axes within one day of winning - otherwise I will pick someone else.
Well, get going! I’ve got axes to get rid of!
I’m going to start picking winners soon! …I may have more axes than I started with, so even more people will win!
[Image: Cute drawings of three couples, each with a label indicating what kind of couple they are: a gay cis man and bisexual trans man, a lesbian trans woman and a pansexual cis woman, and two polysexual nonbinary individuals. Underneath each is the caption: “We are a queer couple able to reproduce.”]
can we stop referring to all sex that could possibly result in pregnancy as “heterosexual reproduction” now
(Also, “pregnant person” does not necessarily mean “woman” for the seventy-millionth time)
I think it’s interesting how its so normal to be allergic to peanuts in North America but I’ve never met anyone in my country who is allergic to nuts.
Couple of cousins are allergic to shellfish doe.
I might be talking out of my ass here but i have this idea it’s connected to pigmentation?
Like in Sweden it’s always the people who are so white and blonde they’re almost transparent that are allergic to EVERYTHING. Gluten, milk, etc.
My (white) BFF from New Jersey says that its basically environmental?
Like, when everyone in your country freaks out about peanuts it kinda lowers kids’ tolerance?? So more and more kids become allergic because they’re not exposed to them in their formative years?
I guess you could relate that back to race too, who knows. He’s not speaking from science evidence either(I think). Interesting theory.
If you’re going to read just one wonderful Adventure Time write-up today (and you should), make it this one by Maria Bustillos. In it, she talks with the key creative gang of Pen, Adam, Pat, Kent, Rebecca, Nick, and Jack, making for a fairly definitive overview of the series. Read it here. Thanks, Maria!
The resolution of each eleven-minute episode is anything but tidily triumphant; each one is as likely to end on a question or a joke as on an answer. Yet one comes away satisfied, a little bit the way one might at a David Lynch movie. The narrative is endlessly malleable, and includes all the possibilities granted by the existence of wizards and magical creatures, time travel, and a huge, ever-evolving cast. It’s a canvas and a story big enough for dozens of artists to make their own way. Even the drawing style is inconsistent, handmade-feeling; longtime fans may learn to detect the hand or voice of a favorite storyboard artist or writer. The goal of the show seems to be exploration, not uniformity.
