    do you ever cook something in the microwave but it’s still really cold in the middle and you just keep eating it instead of heating it longer because life is pointless and entropy is unavoidable and the universe is filled with callous and casual destruction

    J’onn has no time for your bullshit

    The J’onn I know would have respected the jurisdiction of another lawman, advocated patience and a peaceful resolution to this conflict, and would not have immediately escalated a tense situation with violence and threats of greater violence, including psychic rape.

    J’onn J’onnz is supposed to be the ideal of a policeman, not just another pig bullying everyone around him.

    New52, continue to kindly go fuck yourself.

    Eerie beauty of the squid: Underwater photographs which capture spectacular colours of sea creature usually thought of as ugly

    Bobtail squids use thousands of cells in the outer layer of their skin to change colour

    They transform to attract a mate or blend in with their surroundings

    Today is Squid and Cuttlefish Day in the USA, so these lovely photos of Bobtail Squids get to jump the reblog queue.

  7. Noting that the other actors were exhausted and “destroyed physically” by filming in the intensive Jaeger cockpit harnesses, del Toro said: “The only one that didn’t break was Rinko Kikuchi, the girl. She never complained… I asked Rinko her secret and she said ‘I think of gummi bears and flowers.’ I try to do that in my life now.”

  8. I’ve talked about Compsognathids here before. I’m gonna do it again, until and unless Greg Stafford himself comes and makes me stop.

    First is Huaxiagnathus, considered to be the most basal of Compsognathidae. Huaxiagnathus was big for a Compie, roughly six feet long and tall enough to bite a human right in the junk.

    Next up is Cheung Chungtat’s reconstruction of Sinocalliopteryx, eating a Cretaceous-era bird and dromaeosaur. Sinocalliopteryx was even larger than Huaxiagnathus, reaching lengths of almost eight feet.

    Sinosauropteryx returns to the adorable wee dinos we expect from Compsognathidae - measuring roughly 3.5 feet long, and positioned comfortably to bite you right in the calf. This reconstruction seems to be by Chuang Zhao and Lida Xing. The coloration in that image is supported by science.

    We currently don’t have proof that Compsognathus had feathers, but scientists and Zzaburi are pretty sure they had skateboards.

    Juravenator is known from only a single, juvenile specimen. That little guy was 29.5 inches long, and an ankle-biter.

    Scipionyx is another compie known only from a single, juvenile specimen. LOOK HOW WEE IT IS.

    So, remember, game masters, the next time your Malkioni HeroQuest back to the 4th Action, make sure to have a bunch of these little guys running around.

     
  9. The real problem with people fussing over Pluto all the time is it represents the priorities of the public - preserving traditions rather than accepting facts. The pursuit of science is about building a sustainable catalog of truths, and there is no advantage in altering truths to appease nostalgia.

    Can anyone give me a decent reason for the Plutoid category, other than to not have to classify any Trans-Neptunian Object as a planet? Because it seems more reactionary to me to not have bodies with moons classified as planets simply by being outside the orbit of Neptune,

    Unless I’m misremembering my Sagan, appeal to authority has no place in science, so telling me the IAU decided it doesn’t count.

    (I’m a grumpy old shit, and I feel like we wouldn’t be having this discussion if someone decided all Shakespeare plays were “Shakespheroids” and not plays. If there is an actual semantic or semiotic purpose to “Plutoid”, or if it can be applied to bodies outside our solar system, or hell to anything beyond Pluto, Makemake or Haumea, I’m on board with it. )

    Plutoid is a sub-category of Dwarf Planet. It’s like saying some Shakespeare plays are tragedies and some are comedies. And ‘dwarf planet’ exists for the same reason we call Shakespeare plays SHAKESPEARE Plays - to distinguish them from other plays that have many similarities, but differ in significant ways.

    So, look, a planet is round, orbits a sun, and ‘clears’ its neighborhood of any other crap that might have been in that same orbit. Pluto passes through the Kuiper Belt as part of its orbit, in fact, it spends most of its time out there, and has clearly NOT cleared the Kuiper Belt of material, even within its own orbit. Since Pluto is round and orbits a sun, it still qualifies as a dwarf planet.

    Even if Pluto *were* a planet, it would still be a Trans-Neptunian Object - because it’s BEYOND NEPTUNE. If we ever find a TNO that has cleared its orbit within the Kuiper, and is round, we’d be obligated to call it a planet.

    A Plutoid/Pluton is a dwarf planet with a highly inclined, highly eccentric orbit. Dwarf planets with this kind of orbit are more than likely either captured, or are just extremely large Kuiper Belt objects. It’s at least as useful a distinction as distinguishing between ducks and penguins, who are both just “swimming birds”, really.
