Cosmopolitan: Get That Life
How I became a museum’s Chief Curiosity Correspondent
Did you ever think Cosmo would run an image of dermestid beetles nibbling on a goose carcass?
I can’t describe how proud I am that such a popular magazine typically focused on fashion and sex tips is also incorporating scientists into their features because fashion and sex tips and gross anatomy are not at all mutually exclusive.
We are rebranding feminism and empowerment one major media publication at a time.
Thank you, world.
fun fact: If you separate the 4 and the 2 making them different numbers. Then translate them into Japanese shi, and ni. Then put the words together, shini, it means death (shini-gami = god of death). So knowing that
The answer to the ultimate question… of life, the universe, and everything is…
That fact is not fun.
Well, the number 4 in Japanese can also be translated to Yon. So if we have the words Yon and Ni and then put them together, it is yonni, which translates to nothing (as far as i know) in Japanese, however, in Sanskrit, it means vagina.
So therefore, the answer to the ultimate question….of life, the universe, and everything is…
Life comes from the vagina only to be later greeted by death.
i just hit myself in the face my phone
Gandhi has been historically the most aggressive character in Civilization due to an original bug in the first game that caused him to go all-out once he reaches democracy. They just kept the thing going ever since.
To further explain this bug, because I was chatting with mothmonarch about Civilization and other strategy games last night and I never got around to explaining this fully, but I love this story:
Gandhi’s AI in the original game had its aggression set to the absolute minimum (0 on a scale of 0 to 10, I believe, I may have this wrong but the basic idea I’m about to explain is accurate, as far as I can tell). Adopting democracy lowers an AI civ’s aggression by 2 points, so when someone who is fully peaceful loses two points of aggression, they should still be nice and polite, right?
Except this is an old DOS game, and so computer math is in place. What actually happened was that Gandhi’s aggression level ticked backwards two steps, from 0 to 255. On a scale of 0 to 10, Gandhi is now 255 points of pure nuclear rage.
And that’s the story as I recall it, but again I may have gotten some details wrong, so feel free to correct me! After that, as the original poster said, the devs loved the bug so much that they just kept it in as a running joke!
“On a scale of 0 to 10, Gandhi is now 255 points of pure nuclear rage.”
I about pissed myself laughing at this.
That is incredible!
I got bored at work.

This is a message specifically for those who care/are interested. If you don’t/aren’t, you’re welcome to proceed on to other activities.
When I was 25, I went through this. Now I’m 26 and I’m still going through it. And when I’m 27, I’ll be wadding the same waters, I’m sure. I used to not open up to people about feeling like I work so hard, and I don’t get anywhere. It’s not easy, and it hasn’t gotten easier, but when I feel terrible and depressed, I put that negativity into something creative like music, or writing, or vlogging. Mainly, in the hopes that if someone stumbles by and can relate, it might make them feel better. And that makes me feel good. And it reminds me that in the long run, that’s all I really want: to make people happy. Of course that doesn’t pay the bills, so I work 2 jobs but my ultimate career path is to have adventures and make people happy.
I know you’re not giving up, just remember it’s all an adventure, and someday you’ll reach a place where you can look back and smile because you were strong enough to get through the bad times. You got this George! You got this!
Oh and good luck on your job interview!
im fucking crYIN G omfg

What if Peter Pan was just an asshole, and had kids jump out of windows, making Neverland a coma dream?
Peter Pan originally was an angel of death that held kid’s hands when on their way to heaven (Neverland). That’s why they never grew up. All those kids were dead.
I didn’t tell enough people
to fuck off.
