My name is Anna, age twenty-four, an eccentric Asian tattooed nerd that is an avid reader of science fiction, horror, literature, and a few non-fiction books. I am an open-minded, whimsical, biased, oddball human being and I also have a variety of interests that includes listening to death metal/doom metal/heavy metal music, vintage films and photography, pin up era, blueberries, astronomy, drinking coffee/tea on a daily basis if I'm not lazy or forgetful about them, Philip K. Dick, macabre art, The Twilight Zone watcher, and climaxing stories that will crash your mind. I love reading articles that relates to politics, art, photography, and anything that will intrigue or may be useless information to others. I love gaming and currently in love with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and BioShock Infinite. If you have any recommendations or want to talk, feel free to inbox me.
Some of my older posts/images will be on my 'My Photos' section so feel free to browse through them.
So we know it’s JK’s headcanon that Dudley has a magical child, right? Imagine his kid starting to show signs of magic and Dudley remembering all the odd things that used to happen around Harry. Imagine his kid coming…
Jackson Galaxyexplains why everything can seem to be going fine and cuddly when your cat suddenly turns mean.
What he calls the “finger nose” actually works great for scratching too, if you go slow and are observant your cat will guide you to where they want skritches, for how long they want them, then where next, just like someone saying “Ohhh, up a little. A bit harder.” and will love you for it!
wish more people realized that cats do not attack for no reason
The problem with reading is that we are never talking about reading to learn, we are almost always talking about reading for pleasure, while at the same time nervously worrying about and sneering about the idea that reading is a fun and pleasurable activity instead of a higher calling. We’re very neurotic about this. We aren’t talking about reading a shelf of history books or psychology manuals, we’re talking novels…but what if they’re the wrong novels? Or what if they’re the right novels, but you don’t read them in the right way? Or what if you read Dickens, but you keep wandering off to watch goofy shit on the internet (That’s me).
What winds up happening is, we worry and grumble about people not reading, then turn around and worry and grumble about the sanctity and power of reading, and the way we must approach it with reverence or it might not count or something. And essentially what this does is suck all the pleasure out of reading.
Black People with Naturally Blonde HairScientists have finally figured out how some of the dark-skinned inhabitants of the Solomon Islands have naturally blonde hair. Researchers used to believe the blonde hair came from interaction with European people; however, a group from Stanford has detected a genetic difference in the blondes. They swabbed the cheeks of 85 people, 43 with blonde hair, to compare their DNA to that of people with darker hair and found a chromosomal difference caused the blonde hair. The researcher identified a change in the gene TYRP1, which affects pigment in humans and mice, as the cause.
When people say ‘I hate math’ what you’re really saying is, ‘I hate the way mathematics was taught to me.’ Imagine an art class, in which, they teach you only how to paint a fence or wall, but never show you the paintings of the great masters. Then, of course, years later you would say, ‘I hate art.’ What you would really be saying is ‘I hate painting the fence.’ And so it is with math. When people say ‘I hate math’ what they are really saying is ‘I hate painting the fence.’
