SCIENCE HAS CONFIRMED THAT DOGS LOVE US BACK BECAUSE THEY GET THE SAME RUSH OF OXYTOCIN WHEN THEY LOOK AT US THAT WE GET WHEN WE LOOK AT THEM

robina-otaku:

Are you telling me that dogs are looking up to us and think “omg what an adorable fucking cutiepie”?

dear-bunni:

a while ago I read an article about how dogs love us back, but recognize that we’re different from them, while cats see us as bigger and clumsier than them, but do not consider us different  

princess-shatter:

Dogs: I am fuzzy creature and you are a different adorable creature and I love you!!!!!
Cats: I am lanky and graceful and you are a giant mess

purrypixel:

This is why cats occasionally try to bathe and feed us

deadmomjokes:

It’s true; cats see us as giant dumb hairless babies. That’s why they bring us half-dead prey– to teach us how to hunt and eat properly. That’s why they attack when we rub their bellies– that’s how parent cats teach kittens to defend themselves. That’s also why they meow– cats communicate with other adults on a frequency we can’t hear, but meow at kittens because their ears aren’t fully developed. They even specialized a set of meows they use only for humans, because we are especially deaf babies.

We are all of us dumb kittens.

Girls, romanticize yourselves. You are a queen. You are a warrior. You are an enchantress. You are a mermaid. You are a goddess. You are all these things and more, you are the stuff of fairytales.

Women, traumatize others. You are a dragon. You are a wolf. You are a bump in the night. You are the last thing they see in the darkness. You are all of these things and more, you are the heart of their fucking nightmares

myragewillendworlds:

Just something that’s been on my mind. Tumblr has this specific way of handling communities. These are just the ones that come by on my dash, I’m sure there are plenty more examples.

First they start out nice, tolerant, willing to listen and learn.

But they quickly become too nice and tolerant. Rather than simply accepting group X, they begin to overglorify them. They make them into something more special than people outside of group X, and coupled with their compulsive need to belong and feel special, desire to be a part of it too.

In comes the appropriation. If they can’t be a part of it, they’ll make themselves a part of it, one way or another. And is someone in group X not acting the way their fantasy version of them acts? Call them out on it!

They become so fanatical that they begin to talk over, or drive out the original people of group X.

And then finally they manage to become so hateful, their initial tolerance has turned into cold, terrifying intolerance. Calling gay/trans men privileged over white straight cis women, telling transsexual people to die, purposefully triggering people they dislike into panic attacks, defending Muslims to the point of calling the attack on Charlie Hebdo justified. And sending death threats to anyone who dares to disagree.

Being excluded from a group or community because you don’t belong there is not oppression.

It simply means that group does not describe or fit you as an individual.

If you can’t accept that, you have far deeper issues than your imagined ‘oppression’.

Inb4 tons of hate messages and death threats.

poppypicklesticks:

I think there needs to be one about disability and mental illness.  Diagnosis privilege is a thing?  Accusations of gatekeeping?  Non-disabled people policing disabled people about “ableist” language often whilst calling them retards on anon? 

not-reality:

Ha! This is actually a really neat little diagram of how Tumblr as a whole “thinks”.

The SJW side of Tumblr in a few images.

a-random-mod:

The only part not explained is the
"We are advocates for human rights. What? Them? No, they aren’t human"

tenaflyviper:

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED TO TUMBLR.

THIS IS HOW IT ALL WENT WRONG.

nenilein:

I am so sure I am going to have people unfollow me for this, but this dangerously worrying tendency is something that has really been scaring me for a while now, so I really need to support this post. 

Of course, all generalization is imperfect, so there are certainly many cases where this model doesn’t apply, but from what I have seen in the past 20 months? A large part of tumblr is on this exact slippery slope and it’s toxic, frightening and destructive for all intelligent discourse on this website. 


I just hope Soup won't turn out like this

Jessica Wise: How Fiction Can Change Reality

Reading and stories can be an escape from real life, a window into another world — but have you ever considered how new fictional experiences might change your perspective on real, everyday life.

When we identify with characters in stories, we are more likely to adopt their behaviours.  Cool beans.  Check out Nedra Weinreich’s blog for more on using storytelling in health promotion.

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.

See this… this is how it’s done.

No “you don’t look chunky, you look beautiful.”
No “you don’t look chunky” at all.

Just complete acceptance. Yeah, you look how you do, and how you look is beautiful. Mama gets it.

lmao you know it interesting, people poke so much fun at this family but they have way better values and approach things so much better than many

grand-illusions:
The Retinex Theory was devised by Edwin Land in 1977. It is sometimes also known as the Land Effect.

Colour constancy is the well known tendency for an object to always appear to have the same colour, no matter what the viewing conditions are. In other words a bright red post box appears red by daylight, by moonlight, and even under sodium street lights.

According to Land, we decide the colour of something by comparing its ability to reflect short, medium and long wavelengths with that of adjoining objects. Land considered that the eye and the brain (the retina and cortex) form a single optical system, which he called the retinex.

Have a look at the picture above. What colours do you see? Red, range, green, yellow, brown maybe? In fact this is a demonstration of the Land Effect, since you are looking at a monochrome red image, with a black and white overlay. The only 'real ' colour here is red. However our brain tends to 'see' other colours being present. The illusion works best under slightly yellow light, in other words direct sunlight is not the best way to view this illusion.
