Okay, but I think we have to ask @copperbadge : could a Neato beat a Roomba in mortal combat?

The thing is that Roombas are so adorable because they are fumblers. They don’t really clean systematically, they just kind of fucking wander until they’ve hoovered the entire floor. Their search pattern is random.
Neatos aren’t that way. They start at an edge, follow it until they can’t anymore, turn, follow the new wall until they can’t, and just keep going in ever tightening circles. They’re much more systematic and while they probably don’t clean as well, they’re also MUCH faster. So the Neato doesn’t care that the Roomba is off in a corner bonking a wall with its balloon, the Neato just keeps going on its mission no matter what. 

Just imagine what would happen if the Neato’s mission was to take out the Roomba.

I did a thing.
(True facts the rounded edge of the Neato is the back of it, it leads with the square edge.)

a little love story about mermaids and tattoos

Roses are red / Gender is performative / Mass-market romance / Is heteronormative
(via salandered)

We [Fraction and his wife, Kelly Sue DeConnick] were pregnant at the time, and while I was out there I started to realize that if I had a daughter, there would come a day when I would have to apologize to her for my profession. I would have to apologize for the way it treats and speaks to women readers, and the way it treats its female characters.

I knew that if we had a daughter, because I know my wife and I know the kind of girl she wants to raise and I know the kind of girl I want to raise, she was going to look at what I did for a living and want to know how the fuck I could stomach it. How could I sell her out like that?” Fraction continued. “That conversation is still coming, and I’m bracing for it in the way that some dads brace for their daughter’s first date or boyfriend. I became acutely aware that I had sort of done that thing that lots of privileged hetero cisgendered white dudes do. ‘I’m cool with women, and that’s enough.’ It’s not enough. It’s embarrassing to say, because we somehow have attached shame to learning and evolving our opinions, culturally, but I became aware that there was a deficiency of and to women in my work, and all I could do at that moment was take care of my side of the street.

imagine what stiles must look like to the other kids at beacon hills high. like he thinks that everyone thinks he’s just a loser, but they’re actually just really intimated by him? 

"that’s stiles stilinski. one time he actually kidnapped the captain of the lacrosse team. and sometimes he shows up to school with all sorts of bruises cuts. and he’s always being questioned by the police. im pretty sure he’s dating that scary guy with the leather jacket. i think they’re in a gang." 

#’i don’t know what he did to lydia martin but she talks to him now’#’i think he threatened her’#’remember they went to that dance together last year and she was in the hospital and then ran around the woods for a couple days?’#’pretty sure he hypnotized her or something’#from an outsider’s perspective stiles is terrifying (x)

wolftraps:'i heard him talking about setting a guy on fire.';'he kept talking about sacrifices when all those people were dying last semester';'i heard they put him in eichen house but he escaped within a day.';'after attacking his roommate!';'remember how that FBI guy always kept pulling him away for questioning?';'No. guys. my cousin was there;and he says stilinski was the one who set those murder ninjas loose in the hospital.’;'Whatever you do; never EVER say anything bad about Scott McCall.';Stiles;
