Interesting, this shows the probably of a child’s eye color based on the eye color of its parents!
i am the 12.5%
…apparently I am genetically impossible. My dad has blue eyes and my mom, brown. I’ve got green-grey. I’m thinking this doesn’t take all factors into account…
I’m fairly sure this chart is inaccurate. My mom has green eyes and my dad has brown eyes. I have three other siblings. According to this chart at least one of us should have green eyes and at least two of us should have brown eyes but I have brown eyes, my second-youngest brother has brown eyes, and my two other brothers have blue eyes. That’s a 12.5% chance happening twice?? I don’t think so. Especially since my mom’s side of the family has mostly brown eyes even though they carry the recessive gene for green eyes and my dad’s side has all brown eyes.
Yeah, this chart is way off, my mom has brown eyes and my dad has blue eyes and my eyes are very green, not hazel, green. You can even see it in my shitty old blackberry photos of me. Unless of course this is referring to the eye colours of the baby soon after it’s born, because people’s eye colours do change. Light skinned babies are born with less melanin in their skin which is why many light-skinned babies eyes default to blue and then darken up with age. That is what happened with me, I was born with blue then within a year or so they changed to green. My sister was born with brown eyes and they stayed brown, she also has always had a darker complexion than me (more melanin). Many babies with parents with darker skin often default to brown eyes because of inherited melanin levels from their parents.
There is also a chance your eyes can change colour (lighter or darker) during puberty or pregnancy, but normally it’s not drastic.
tl:dr This chart is not very accurate unless it’s only talking about >1 year old babies.
If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also —
This specifically refers to a hand striking the side of a person’s face, tells quite a different story when placed in it’s proper historical context. In Jesus’s time, striking someone of a lower class ( a servant) with the back of the hand was used to assert authority and dominance. If the persecuted person “turned the other cheek,” the discipliner was faced with a dilemma. The left hand was used for unclean purposes, so a back-hand strike on the opposite cheek would not be performed. Another alternative would be a slap with the open hand as a challenge or to punch the person, but this was seen as a statement of equality. Thus, by turning the other cheek the persecuted was in effect putting an end to the behavior or if the slapping continued the person would lawfully be deemed equal and have to be released as a servant/slave.
THAT makes a lot more sense, now, thank you.
So if any of you don’t know, Under Armour has a line of fitted baselayers featuring popular superheros from DC AND Marvel such as Superman, Spiderman, Iron Man and Captain America, and they’re pretty damn awesome. Here’s the downside though: the line so far is exclusively for men and boys. They had some women’s options when it first came out but it was less than 5 options and it was either just grey cotton t-shirts with a pink Superman logo on it or a black shirt with the pink Superman logo, and no girl’s options. I wrote this on their Facebook page today and this was their response. I really hope they do us justice, because if so this is going to be good and I’ll own one of everything.

DO NOT DO THIS.
DO NOT DO THIS.
DO NOT DO THIS.
NO DO NOT FUCKING DO THIS, CRYON HAS A LOT OF FUCKING LEAD IN IT (four times more than lipstick) PLEASE JUST BUY ACTUAL LIPSTICK.
There’s no lead in crayola crayons. Kids eat them.
The ingredients in Crayola Crayons are: paraffin, wax, and pigment. They’re made with the understanding that some kids will eat the damn things, so the company that makes Crayons has been very very careful to use non-toxic materials, even going so far as to use a special edible glue on the paper labels. (cornstarch and water, fyi)
You can eat Crayons, if you really wanted to, but frankly the flavor’s a little bland. They taste like wax. So, yeah. adding oils with a lower solidification temperature like Olive Oil or Grapeseed or Avocado, and mixing in some Shea or Coconut Butter would make a creamy crayon. Which you could use on your skin, if you wanted.
Go wild, use that shit on more than just lips. Use it like theatrical makeup, paint your tits blue if you want. Or use it like paint on the walls, or paper, or canvas. It won’t dry the same way acrylic or watercolor paint will, and will remain ‘workable’ and pliable until the oil looses enough water to solidify, much like, oh, off the top of my head… oil paint.
Modern oil paints are very similar to the recipe above, though usually done with Linseed oil or other inert non-organic oils. Organic oils, as they dry, can discolor, making your carefully chosen color look off. Why are some really old painting slightly yellow? Partly the varnish has yellowed, partly airborne pollutants have stained the surface, and partly the oil in the original paint has shifted color.
BTW, don’t eat Linseed oil, you’ll get the runs something fierce and regret it a lot. And then you get to go to the doctor and explain why your runny poo is brightly colored. But the amount you’d ingest from lipstick made with crayons? Negligible.
Now I really want to make a set of rainbow lipstick to match my rainbow collection of nail polish (which is way more toxic than crayon lipstick, too.)

lawfulgoodness asked: A while back you made a really great post about why cosplaying the Apache Tracker from Welcome to Night Vale isn't okay. Your post stuck with me because it explained so effectively why doing a racist thing, regardless of context or intention, is a racist thing. It made me wonder... Could a live-action movie or TV show of W2NV include that character? By including Apache Tracker would it continue the pain of NDN stereotypes? If so, does that mean W2NV is inherently racist?
Portraying a racist character as a racist character in the context of TV show/movie/play/other performance is different than cosplaying one, because of the framework of acting; acting is a closed space with its own presumed setting, whereas cosplay is a thing that happens here and now. Like I said in that post, it’s impossible to cosplay as the apache tracker - if you’re white and you throw on a tacky war bonnet and wander around behaving like Johnny Depp’s Tonto, you’re not cosplaying. You have become the role.
A good analogy of cosplay vs. TV show/movie - it’s not racist for an actor in a movie set during WWII to portray a nazi. It would be skeevy as fuck, however, to choose to cosplay a nazi and show up at cons in nazi attire. Does that analogy make the context thing more clear?
It doesn’t bother me that the Apache Tracker exists as a character - I am in fact supportive of the show for pointing out how heinous his actions were (His plot arc went in a really problematic direction though. There’s issue to be taken there.)
Also, I really hope that a WTNV visual media application NEVER happens for the entirely different reason of canonizing anyone’s appearance, especially Cecil. Because I am not on board for blond white three-eyed tattooed Cecil in a sweater vest. I’m really not. And that’s the most popular fandom headcanon of him.
I mean, it would be really fun and awesome if a film version came out and Steve Carlsburg is the only white dude in town, but honestly what’s the odds of that happening?

Alright, here’s something funny. These boys in my hall went outside in their undies to take some photos in the snow. Funny, right? They’re trying to get attention and it’s hilarious. Us ladies choose to do the same, we are wearing more clothing, and are doing the exact same poses. We are wearing as much clothing as is acceptable at the pool or the beach, at the gym, etc.
There is a serious double standard here— us girls have gotten responses like:
"What’s the point of being half naked?"
"*ahem* sluts *ahem*"
"What’s wrong with you females?"
Or worse, what my mother said. Her initial shock was apparently because she thought I was in my underwear, but when I told her I was in a swimsuit, she was suddenly happy I was having fun in college.
The idea here is that we are doing the same thing. When arguing this point with one of my hallmates, he said “But men’s bodies aren’t built the same, you don’t see girls getting pumped up over a topless guy, but how many guys do you think are gonna get all crazy over a topless girl?” Seriously? Really? Women don’t need to dress in order to avoid a reaction from men. You’re mad because you can’t control yourself? Men can pose in their undies in the snow without an issue because women aren’t going to go wild over it? Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours.
The double standards are killin’ me.
"Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours." Is literally one of the best quotes I’ve ever heard. Thank you.
