Misfits of Incredulity

Stuff from Ross Bennett. Not the stand-up comic or the fashion designer, but a different one.

        When school was dismissed Anne marched out with her red head held high. Gilbert Blythe tried to intercept her at the porch door. “I’m awfully sorry I made fun of your hair, Anne,” he whispered contritely. “Honest I am. Don’t be mad for keeps, now.”
        Anne swept by disdainfully, without look or sign of hearing. “Oh how could you, Anne?” breathed Diana as they went down the road half reproachfully, half admiringly.
        "I shall never forgive Gilbert Blythe," said Anne firmly. "And Mr. Phillips spelled my name without an ‘e,’ too. The iron has entered into my soul, Diana."

Thus began a lifelong fascination with Megan Follows.

Sorry, but no. Logan was not kind. He might have been nice to Rory on occasion, but he was not a kind person. Half the time he was an outright jerk. And don’t even start on Dean being loyal.

Who is Marty? Did he come up that last season nobody really watched?

I can’t even with Lorelai’s.

If there’s anything to be taken away from Gilmore Girls, it’s that nobody’s got it all. We’re all flawed and we’ll all disappoint if we’re expected to be.

Even so…the ones we would write off probably have more going on than we’d expect, the ones we’d expect the worst from can end up our best friends, and the folks we figure we should have nothing to do with can have their moments of brilliance. Even the oddballs and slugfests can be a hoot if you look from the right direction.

And anything can go on a pizza.

“…that from and after 1 January 1820, no child shall be employed in any description of work for the spinning of cotton wool into yarn, or in any previous preparation of such wool, until he or she shall have attained the fall age of 9 years.”

“The bottom line here is I have no doubt that we will control this importation, this case of Ebola, so it does not spread widely in this country. We will stop it here.”

“Macroeconomics in this original sense has succeeded: Its central problem of depression-prevention has been solved, for all practical purposes, and has in fact been solved for many decades.”

I’m going to release myself of the pressure of being creative for a while and just draw procrastination possums when I need a break from work/thinking/having nasty phone fights with my father/getting guilt-tripped by my mother/being sick/being frustrated/feeling like a failure.

I vote for lots more Procrastination Possums any day—but especially because I wholeheartedly vote against all those other things.

Still digging these bananas, by the way.

the southern US genuinely scares me like my map of ‘states i will willingly go to for college’ looks more or less like

Arkansan, here. My entire family is from Mississippi, so I’m pretty capable of having a pretty informed opinion of this map.

It’s correct.

And if you draw it on a Swype keyboard, it types out “Zoom Qatar pew!”

The highlight of my work week has been me standing in Walgreens buying a probiotic with a raging ear infection, staggering and sweaty, and being hit on by a 6’4” dude so soft spoken I had to force him to repeat his awkwardly polite pick up lines twice.

Y’know…ear infection or not, this sounds like the perfect way to deal with pick-up lines.  Have them repeat them louder and louder until everyone can share.

koztastic asked: Hello, I am looking to make a physically relate-able alien species that is unique and isn't a cheap copy off of humans. I've been doing some research but I hardly know where to start! I've seen you give out helpful resources before, anything you think would be a good read for someone trying to make aliens?

characterdesigninspiration:

This is actually a really timely question for me, because I just recently started trying to develop some alien species for a story but had the same problem of them all seeming a bit too humanoid in various ways.  I didn’t have much time for research lately but now that I’m on break, let’s see what I can find…

And here are some lists/galleries of good and bad alien concepts and designs from existing media, if you want some inspiration:

Or…just write the French. Give them a new name, but just write what the French would do. 

Unless you’re French. Then write the Germans.

What? Bisexual? She can’t be bisexual, you’re only bisexual if you’re actively fucking two people of two differing genders at the same exact time. The moment you stop fucking them you’re suddenly not bi anymore. It’s science.

I suppose that means we bi people exist in quantum superposition until someone observes us having sex.

This is getting uncomfortably close to buttered-toast-dropping math.
