you know what i keep thinking about, is a fic where bucky was like, fucking somebody else in the 107th, before they got captured, before he knew steve was coming over, because he was lonely and horny and pretty sure he was going to die, and whatever, just, whatever

and that guy died, maybe, or wasn’t in the HC, or just sort of…. vanished, after steve showed up, like everyone more or less did, for bucky

Nat:
AUGH

gyzym:
but in the ensuing years either he remained alive, and told people about it, or his journal survived somehow

and so bucky barnes became… kind of an icon, for the queer community? this famous war hero, captain america’s right hand, confirmed as having fucked other men by at least one primary source

and so when bucky is relearning himself, based on like, SHIT OTHER PEOPLE SAY OR HAVE SAID, he has to discover his own sexuality through the lens of having been analyzed as part of queer theory and history classes?

Nat:
OH MY GODDDDDDD

gyzym:
RIGHT?

I love how Hans is all subtle and Anna just CRASHES into him.

Does Anna even know how strong she is? I mean, she hit a wolf away with a lute. She just batted it away like it was nothing. And then she punches Hans flying off a boat. He arches. Arches.AND LET’S NOT FORGET SHE JUST ACCIDENTALLY THROWS A BUST FAR AWAY LIKE IT’S NOTHING. HOW STRONG IS THIS GIRL?

People also forget that she pulled kristoff up a cliff and pulled a tree down to hit marshmallow in the face… this girl

Anna born with superstrength and her while life her parents just told her she was clumsy and ordinary.  They didn’t want to deal with another weird superpowered daughter.

Headcanon accepted! Anna has super strength and Elsa has Ice Powers. They’d make a great crime fighti- wait…haven’t we seen that before?

Biomedical Ephemera’s Cat Surgery and Wedding Celebration Giveaway!

ALRIGHT! Let’s do this. I’ve been meaning to do a giveaway for a really long time, so I’ve accumulated WAY too much stuff. Why now? Because I’m getting married in, like, three weeks, and I want to share some of the celebration with you guys! Yay!

**Save Zarkoth, Destroyer of Carpets!**

Much more importantly, though, I’m also doing this because my kitty needs his tooth removed, and all of our upcoming expenses mean that we can’t get this done on our own. The full story is at the donation website, and I want to get the word out that an awesome kitty could use a buck or two if you have it.

You do not have to donate to be entered into the giveaway. I really just want to get the word out so that those who can help know about it.

With that out of the way, this is the first of three lots - the other two will be posted at the end of the month, after this is concluded.

Lot 1:

  • ONE “Dr. Miles’ New Joke Book” from 1936 Full of terrible jokes and testimonials. Advertisement for Dr. Miles’ Anti-Pain Pills.
  • Choice of TWO: Inflatable Frog, Inflatable Bird, Inflatable Turtle, fossil Deinonychus life-sized wall wrap.
  • ONE Inflatable Perch Including internal organs illustrated on the side, with diagrams and teaching tools.
  • ONE Kidney-On-A-Stick Reverse is a regular kidney model, without internal components shown.
  • Choice of ONE: Inflatable Marie Curie OR Benjamin Franklin. Perfect for pranking or terrifying your science-inclined friends! Both heads have trivia about their subjects on the back.
  • THREE “Wild Wraps” Bush babies and black panthers. Perfect for organizing cords, hanging from your ponytail, or guarding your treasures!
  • Choice of ONE:
    100 Flowers and How They Got Their Names by Diana Wells OR Wicked Bugs by Amy Stewart. Both are fascinating, have bizarre, curious, and fun trivia and facts about their subjects, and I’ve used both as resources for the blog!

Giveaway Rules:

Again, you do not have to donate OR follow me to be entered, but if you like any of this stuff, you’ll probably like my blog!
Check it out!

  1. "Like" the post for one entry, reblog for a second entry. Two entries max. If the post is reblogged more than once, only the first two times will count.
  2. Winner will be chosen via Random Number Generator.
  3. The winner will be chosen on Monday, April 21, 2014.
  4. Winner will be contacted via “Ask” so please keep your ask box open!
  5. Winner will have three days to respond, before I re-roll the number.
  6. I will ship worldwide.
  7. What with the wedding, kitty surgery, and everything else coming up, please allow up to 4 weeks for delivery - though hopefully it will only take a few days!
  8. If you win this lot, you cannot win another. Feel free to promote them all, though ;D
  9. Give yourself a hug, because you’re awesome and love weird science!

The Most Intense Color of Any Living Thing on Earth

Also known as the marble berry, Pollia condensata is a wild plant that grows in the forests of several African countries. The berries are not edible, but they have an extremely rare property. They produce the most intense color of any living thing on Earth. Even after the berries have been picked from the plant, they stay the same shiny, vibrant, metallic blue color for many decades.

The vast majority of colors in the biological world are produced by pigments—compounds produced by a living organism that selectively absorb certain wavelengths of light, so that they appear to be the color of whichever wavelengths they reflect.

However, the marble berry’s skin has no pigment. The berries produce their vibrant blue color through nanoscale-sized cellulose strands that scatter light as they interact with one another. Thus the fruit’s color is even visible at the cellular level as pictured above.
