I Should’ve Saved That Gif When I Had The Chance Because Now I Can’t Find It: The Musical
Not reblogging this onto my mod blog for reasons.
Because seriously, calm your tits, guys.
Granted, this is a great show, and the fandom’s great as well, but seriously, you’re not entitled to control what Hasbro or DHX Studios does. You’re acting like spoiled brats I see at every Walmart, crying cause “mother” didn’t get what you wanted. Stop the bashing and get a grip on your life!

2. Select “animated” under search tools.
3. Post result.
Can’t say I’m surprised
I DON’T KNOW WHAT I EXPECTED
yep that’s pretty much me all the fucking time
that makes sense
2. I’d marry you
3. I’d date you
5. I miss you
6. I’d kiss you
17. I’d hit you with a bus
18. I love you
20. Friends forever
21. Marry me
22. Your mine
23. I never want to loose you
Yes lets see shall we…
Lets remind ourselves of not only why we love gaming, but why it can be good for us.
We’ll be posting and linking things like the one above (source: http://visual.ly/gaming-good-you) here, and on our Twitter, Facebook & Website.
And you can share your questions and stories with us by dropping us an Ask.
Merry Gaming :)
I just realized that I had reached 130+ followers (ohmai)
So now I shall be holding a contest!
There will be 3 winners
1st winner will win a shaded picture like this:
(this is just an example)
2nd winner shall win a flat colored picture like this:
(yet again another example :D)
3rd winner shall win a sketch like this:
(not with two characters though)
Likes and reblogs enter you into the contest!
You don’t have to be following but it’d be great if you were to!
((Apparently that link led to this. No idea why, but I didn’t play it. I still don’t trust this shit. But I know there will be a post about it being a possible virus.
Edit: I checked the virus tag. This is a virus, DO NOT CLICK IT! It’s being sent through multiple emails and other shit. DON’T CLICK IT.))
((Seriously people, spread this. It could save someone’s computer!))
((Reblogging yet again for those who missed it.))OH SHIT. SOMEONE SENT ME THIS.
((If you can’t tell for sure if a “video” is a virus, blacklist is.gd on tumblr savior. If it doesn’t show up, it’s a virus. If it still shows up, drag it. If it turns out to be an image, it might be a virus or a pathetic attempt at trolling. If it isn’t an image, it’s likely a video.))
Wheeee I’ve hit another milestone and what better way to celebrate than with an art giveaway! There’s gonna be FIVE WINNERS this time! Lots of prizes to be won!
- One grand prize winner gets a full body, coloured and shaded pic of two characters!
- Two second prize winners get a full body, coloured and shaded pic of one character :3
- And two third place winners get a full body, flat colour pic of one character :3
- You have to be following at least one of my blogs: SFW | NSFW | Personal
- The more blogs you follow, the more chances you have of winning!
- Likes and reblogs count, you can reblog as many times as you want, every like and reblog counts as an entry.
- Everyone who donates to or commissions me until the giveaway ends is also given extra entries! Any amount or commission type is much appreciated!
- Even fanart counts as an entry! ERRTHANG COUNTS AS AN ENTRY.
- Prizes can be either SFW or NSFW, lineless (above) or lined, it’s up to you!
- Giveaway ends 6th June, that’s 2 weeks from now (so I can finish my current commisshies first hehe).
Have fun and good luck babes!
YOU GUYS! GET XKit 7!!!!!!
THERE IS A CHAT FEATURE!!!!!!~!
I can’t use it but I’ll help spread the word about it for ya
*Dusk is still in the background, trying to get a flailing Ari back into his blog*
You guys should try it out :3
That’s barbaric, TF2 is just for Menn. Everybody knows this.
whY AM I LAUGHING SO HARD
OH GOD ENGIE’S FUCKING FACE
A working process for cloning stem cells from existing human cells has finally been discovered by a team at Oregon Health & Science University.
These stem cells were created by reprogramming healthy skin cells, a goal that has eluded researchers around the world for years. It’s the first key step in developing medical procedures for replacing dying or injured cells with new ones to stave off disease and age. That could mean growing a new liver, or kidney or heart, in the lab for an organ transplant, or even repairing the brains of those suffering with diseases like Parkinson’s.
The team was led by Shoukhrat Mitalipov from the reproductive and developmental sciences department of the Oregon National Primate Research Centre. He said: “A thorough examination of the stem cells derived through this technique demonstrated their ability to convert just like normal embryonic stem cells into several different cell types, including nerve cells, liver cells and heart cells. Furthermore, because these reprogrammed cells can be generated with nuclear genetic material from a patient, there is no concern of transplant rejection.”
“While there is much work to be done in developing safe and effective stem cell treatments, we believe this is a significant step forward in developing the cells that could be used in regenerative medicine.”
The technique Mitalipov and his team used is called “somatic cell nuclear transfer” — as you can see in the video, it essentially involves sucking out the DNA from an adult cell and inserting it into the empty nucleus of a donor egg. This creates a clone of the original cell, and is in fact the first step in the cloning method used to create animal clones like Dolly the sheep.
However, in its therapeutic mode, the new cells can be grown as replacements for the original type of cell. That objective hasn’t been reached until now as human eggs are extremely fragile compared to many of the animals which we have cloned. That Mitalipov and team have succeeded is down to research on primates, and adapting primate stem cell research to humans.
As a cell divides after fertilisation, it undergoes several transformations as it prepares to split and multiply. The metaphase is the moment just before a cell splits, as the chromosomes align alongside each other in the very centre of the cell so that, when it splits, one goes one way as another goes the other, each taking the full copy of the genetic code. The researchers managed to stall the metaphase while the cell underwent nuclear transfer, effectively giving the new chromosomes time to get settled before the metaphase finished and cell division proceeded.
An added bonus is that the eggs used have not been fertilised, so there won’t be any debates over the ethics of embryonic stem cells as we have seen in the US in the past. While the researchers placed skin cell nuclei into the receptor egg cells, the method is conceivably similar for any other kind of cell.
And, while it may sounds like the first step towards a practical method for cloning humans, the Mitalipov has made it clear that’s not the aim. “Our research is directed toward generating stem cells for use in future treatments to combat disease. While nuclear transfer breakthroughs often lead to a public discussion about the ethics of human cloning, this is not our focus, nor do we believe our findings might be used by others to advance the possibility of human reproductive cloning.”
The research has been published in the journal Cell.
Can someone from the sciencey side of tumblr please explain this ?
This is called shape memory. It’s made from an alloy of titanium and nickel (I believe it’s called nitinol). It has the ability to “remember” the shape it’s taken.
When cold you can bend it whatever which way, but once you heat it (or in this case put it in what I presume is hot water) it will take the original shape.
