Pfft, you're just like me. I forget what I post too. I meant cecilos for the who does what in the relationship meme. who wakes the other with kisses, who cooks etc
Oh! Duh! Sorry I was gone for a while an my memory is that of a squirrel’s.
- who wakes the other one up with kisses
Cecil does. 110% Cecil. He’s always so excited to get to wake up next to his perfectly imperfect scientist and can’t exactly help himself. Also Carlos’ excitement about existence does not begin until at least two cups of coffee are downed.
- who cooks for who
Carlos does. His Mama taught him how to cook because she honestly though he would be single for a very long time (she wasn’t wrong) and made certain he wouldn’t starve or order take out every night. Carlos is a very good cook and cooking always reminds him of home. Their apartment usually smells of spices.
- who is the morning person/night person
They’re both night people. Cecil because Night Vale natives simply thrive at night and also because it’s too freaking hot in the day time to do jack. Carlos just hates mornings.
- who is the romantic one
Cecil. Carlos isn’t terribly good with navigating what’s romantic and what’s not (HEY CECIL LETS GO DO TREE SCIENCE ON OUR FIRST DATE) even though he does try. Cecil is a gigantic romantic and is known to stage elaborate romantic gestures.
- who is the top when it comes to sex
Carlos. I can’t unsee bottom Cecil. I just can’t.
- who would lead in ballroom dancing
Again Carlos. He’s not terribly athletic but he does like to dance (He’s usually dancing around the lab because it’s fun and it makes it easier to avoid the various explosions and miniature disasters that happen)
- who is the more cuddly one
They’re both cuddle bears for sure, but I think Cecil might be just a little more cuddly.
- who is the one to most likely pick the movie they watch
Carlos. Cecil loves learning about Carlos’ interests and the things he can tell him about the outside world from what’s in movies.
- who is the one who would pay for dates
- who is the one who would initiate a quicky during classes
CECIL ‘I’M GOING TO DANGEROUS THINGS AND BROADCAST THEM ON AIR BECAUSE WHAT THE FUCK ARE CONSIQUENCES’ PALMER.

I like to imagine that instead of freaking out whenever Carlos breaks a Night Vale law, Cecil would instead just drop him a friendly reminder because he’s an understanding boyfriend.
Like just humming as moves around the room and casually switching Carlos’ pen for a…

me digging your grave
My first time on Tumblr, and this was the first gif. As soon as I saw it I knew I was already in too deep.
DO IT. LISTEN TO HOW TO BE A HEARTBREAKER DEFINITELY WORTH IT

been feeling kind of paranoid lately
Take that time by yourself to get to know yourself and rediscover what makes you shine. Don’t surrender yourself to waiting, and don’t stay isolated for too long, because there’s a beautiful you the world is dying to meet.
comics that end sadly but wind up being replied to with love are what I live for

Isn’t it nice how people twist their religious scripture to suit their weds but when it’s used against them it’s suddenly not okay
I talked to a monk about this quote once (we have mutual friends, and he came to a New Year’s Eve party at my shared art studio). He said this isn’t even talking about homosexuality. That the bible never actually says homosexuality is wrong. What that passage means is this:
Women were treated as subservient and it that you shouldn’t treat other men as subservient, like they are beneath you. It is not talking about homosexuality. If it was, it would say it outright since the bible lists other things outright.
I take the word of a monk who have studied the bible extensively more than a self proclaimed Christian.
The above text, I would like to point out is from the point of view of this translation of the original Hebrew. I spoke with my cousin’s rabbi on the matter and his response was different, saying that it was a mistranslation. See, the true translation says that a man shall not lie with another in the bed of a woman, which is to say, the Hebrews had a shit ton of rules about when a man was or was not allowed in a woman’s bed and private quarters (including, if she didn’t want you there, you weren’t allowed there. Hebrew women were also allowed to divorce their husbands and the image of the ‘oppressive Hebrew people’ is an image that was propogated by Christianity which, historically speaking, doesn’t treat the Jewish people too well and liked to paint them as being rather barbaric and backwards and cultish with their traditions, which, another piece of fun info, their traditions were one of the main reasons why the Jewish people were less likely, in medieval times, to die of the plague. Because washing your hands and avoiding the dead and vermin and the like was a lot of help. Of course the Christians persecuted them for not dying but that’s another matter. I’m sidetracked). So the verse is literally saying ‘Don’t fuck in some lady’s bed because that’s just goddamn rude’
Also, whenever a Christian brings the book of Leviticus up, you should feel free to point out that these are rules that were given to make the Hebrew people prepared for when the son of God came to earth. In Christianity, it’s believed the son of God was Jesus. So by following the rules set in Leviticus or pushing them as things we should follow, they’re saying that Jesus was not the son of God, and that Jesus did not, in fact, die for our sins. Jewish people believe, in their faith, that the son of God hasn’t yet been born, so many choose to follow these rules.
Most people of course roll their eyes when I explain the translation of the verse (full breakdown found here) but it’s always fun to point out the nature of the rules in Leviticus and the implications of following them.
I’m a theology student and I am on the verge of crying because of how accurate this commentary is. Historical context is simultaneously the most interesting and most important part of interpreting any texts.
Most religious people seem to base their beliefs on things that are severely mistranslated. I wish they would do their research before using the bible for hate.
I studied theology extensively and was going to become a theologist until I switched majors. The above commentary is 100% accurate and what I try to stress in a lot if conversations with Bible Thumpers.
Jesus also affirms the homosexual relationship between the Roman Centurion and his “slave”. The particular Greek word used to refer to this special slave was “pais”. Greek language studies and contexts show that a “pais” was a male love slave. Regular slaves were called “dolos”. The Centurion makes this distinction clearly when he asks Jesus to heal his slave (pais), and then to prove his status he tells Jesus that his slaves (dolos) go when he tells them to. But this slave (pais) was special. He was the Centurion’s lover.
Hearing this, Jesus was so amazed he says he had not found ANYONE ELSE who had such great faith. He then blesses the Centurion and heals his male lover.
THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE REALLY TEACHES ABOUT SAME SEX COUPLES.
In short, the English adaptation is a mistranslated farce.
reblogging for the comments ^^^^^^
Saving for later, in case parents ever bring this up or I need to come out again and “for good”.

The Game of Life.
oh my god
what an interesting way to look at things.
lifes a gamble
and death always wins
because death has nothing to lose
Or maybe because Death’s a cheating whore look at that fuck hiding cards under his bony ass
Hands down, one of my favorite pieces ever.
You can’t cheat death.. But that doesn’t mean death can’t cheat you

So, pretty frequently writers screw up when they write about injuries. People are clonked over the head, pass out for hours, and wake up with just a headache… Eragon breaks his wrist and it’s just fine within days… Wounds heal with nary a…

the complete set of posters, made by students at New College of Florida.
Hey everyone—these were made by New College students last orientation (2013) to passively teach about consent on campus.
Now that these are all over the interwebs, please “like” New College’s new sexual violence resource center, the SHARE Resource Center. SHARE stands for Sexual Health and Relationship Education—all of our future sexual violence prevention education programming will be coming out of here! Once the center opens, it will be open 24/7 and be available as a resource center for those in crisis, for their friends, and to learn about being an active bystander.
Everyone should understand this.

In case anyone wanted to know what a lightening strike can do to the body- given that they survive.
I’ve reblogged this before but I didn’t know it was from a lightning strike. That’s insane.
