A young man stands in his bedroom. It just so happens that today, the 13th of April, is this young man's birthday. Though it was thirteen years ago he was given life, it is only today he will be given a name!
What will the name of this young man be?

so today my ap art history teacher was teaching us about Hapshetsut the only female pharaoh and he was like “have you seen women they can pop out a baby and be like alright let’s go” and then he walked over to this guy and aimed his fist towards his balls and the guy flinched and held his crotch so he was like “men may be stronger but women are tougher” and then he said “so when someone tells you to grow a pair, they mean ovaries”
Idk if this counts as a peeve more of an art-astronomy pet peeve
but when people draw the cresent moon and where the dark, shaddowed part of the moon is they put in stars
like studdenly that part of the moon is invisible instead of just being in the shadow
wait no peOPLE ACTUALLY DO THIS???
really stupid question though but like, aren’t there stars in front of the moon??? like??? space isn’t two dimensional so someone putting a couple stars in front of the shadow wouldn’t necessarily be wrong?? because aren’t there stars all around in space and?????? im just going to be confused forever frick uvu;
hun if there was a star infront of the moon we’d be fucking dead
i’m fucking crying

I don’t normally reblog things, but this is simply too interesting to not make a note of! Read more at the Independent or the Mirror
This is so misleading that it is frankly a lie.
First of all, “Scientists” haven’t solved anything except determined the results of a DNA test—matching a still-living descendent of the sister of a mental patient with a 126-year-old semen stain on the shawl of a single woman thought to be killed by the Ripper.
The idea that they could have a “100% match” is highly tenuous at best; siblingship is a tricky thing to discover through DNA to begin with, and vastly more so when you take into account that they’re testing the descendent of a sibling. There’s a reason that whenever possible, geneticists prefer to test a parent as well as a sibling, given how many DNA loci are recombined to form a sibling’s DNA. They also “matched” the shawl’s owner’s bloodstain to her “three-times great-granddaughter,” proving again a “100% match.”
The DNA evidence has not been independently verified by any authorities.
The shawl itself, the one and only piece of physical evidence, has not been independently verified. It “is thought” to have been part of the case.
The lead detective on the case is not a detective. He is a self-proclaimed “armchair detective” and history nut.
He is selling a book about this. It doesn’t take an “armchair detective” to realize that a book about looking for Jack the Ripper’s identity is not going to turn a profit without showing “conclusive proof” that they’ve found the killer.
His only other proof is the fact that Kosminski was recorded as a suspect in the 1800s by the police, who were notedly anti-Semetic (Kosminski was a Polish Jew).
This “study,” if it can even be called that when the information was clearly biased, was reported in the Daily Mail and the Mirror, not exactly shining bastions of journalism. Look for it to be discredited very soon. I’m betting Cracked’s “B.S. News Stories that Fooled Your Facebook Friends” gets there within a week.
The apparently brilliant scientist that has pioneered this new DNA matching technology, Dr. Jari Louhelainen, is hardly a standout in his field. He is not decorated, has received no awards or fellowships that I’ve been able to find, and is a professor at a college that has turned out only one notable alumnus in the scientific field, ever (and she is an astrophysicist).
Even if the shawl and its two spots of purported DNA were not obviously of over-inflated importance (and if they could be verified), that is far from saying the mystery of Jack the Ripper is solved. All that would be in today’s courtroom is a single piece of circumstantial evidence for ONE of five serial murders.
The newspaper that reported this is a tabloid.
The “detective” is an amateur with a book to sell.
The “scientist” is a lecturer at a new university in England that focuses on sports.
The “evidence” is over-hyped and far from conclusive.
The “evidence” only points to Kosminski for ONE murder out of five.
This is not research. This is sensationalism. The mystery of Jack the Ripper is far from solved.
No shawl was recorded at the scene of the crime, no witnesses mentioned her as wearing it in the hours before her body was found (and one group encountered her within ten minutes of her death), and most importantly: Kosminski wasn’t identified as a suspect until 6 years after the murders, and HE WAS NON-VIOLENT. While he was neurodivergent (experiencing auditory hallucinations, among other things), he was specifically described as having no violent tendencies. ‘man blames immigrant for something they played no part in’ is hardly newsworthy, nor is ‘whitechapel man visited sex worker in 1888’.
Reblogged for truth. People don’t know better. Great explanation. This smacks of anti-Semitism, and sensationalism. Aside from all this, there’s no proof that Kosminski, who was indeed Polish, could even speak English. His family spoke to him in Polish, and no one verified his ability in other languages. He needed English to speak to the victims.
Wow what I never realized the colors were inverted
You’d think I would have noticed that
That’s the point. The world Coraline lives in is supposed to be boring and gray, but the people are what give it life and purpose. In the Other Mother’s world the people are plastic puppets where she pulls the strings because it presumably changes for every child she takes, but the world around them is bright and colorful for the purpose of enticing the children to stay… before they notice the inhabitants are nothing but dust.
I saw Michael at this weekend’s convention in Salt Lake City! From his panel:
Fan: *asks for Michael’s favourite scene with Tom*
Michael: “One of them was when he’s giving me mouth to mouth in the pilot. You can just see my lips quivering with laughter. I was just saying stuff like "Can we get Tom a tic tac before this take? I don’t want to lose the moment!" He’s like "Dude, shut up!"
