me @ AO3
You wanna know a secret tho? You can.
You can leave as many as you want and it’ll show up. I’ll see your name four times in the kudos list when you clicked it four times. That little note is just there to remind you that you’ve already done it.
PSA PSA PSA PSA
oh my god???
If nothing else, it shows up in the kudos email. For example:
WHAT?!?!? SO I CAN SHOWER AUTHORS WITH LOVE EVEN AFTER I’VE LEFT KUDOS????
IS THIS WHY I SOMETIMES SEE REPEATED NAMES?! I THOUGHT IT WAS AN ERROR!!!
Well that explains why I sometimes see the same name three times in a row.
Now, that I know this I’m SO NOT SORRY to all the authors on AO3 my kudos love shall overflow!
i’m like 70% sure that’s not how long classic who’s run was
only doctor who could run for 4 seasons over -9 years
Classic Doctor Who
1984-1975 G [rating] 4 Seasons
followed by a 5 star rating & a button reading ‘not interested’
“This is my worst birthday ever.”
“Why, cause this is 300 BCE and it’s really hard to define a Good life?”
“No, cause it’s a little humid- YES CAUSE THIS IS 300 BCE AND IT’S REALLY HARD TO DEFINE A GOOD LIFE!”
What’s encrypting your internet surfing? An algorithm created by a supercomputer? Well, if the site you’re visiting is encrypted by the cyber security firm Cloudflare, your activity may be protected by a wall of lava lamps.
Cloudflare covers websites for Uber, OKCupid, & FitBit, for instance. The wall of lamps in the San Francisco headquarters generates a random code. Over 100 lamps, in a variety of colors, and their patterns deter hackers from accessing data.
As the lava lamps bubble and swirl, a video camera on the ceiling monitors their unpredictable changes and connects the footage to a computer, which converts the randomness into a virtually unhackable code.
Codes created by machines have relatively predictable patterns, so it’s possible for hackers to guess their algorithms, posing a security risk. Lava lamps, add to the equation the sheer randomness of the physical world, making it nearly impossible for hackers to break through.
You might think that this would be kept secret, but it’s not. Simply go in and ask to see the lava lamp display. By allowing people to affect the video footage, human movement, static, and changes in lighting from the windows work together to make the random code even harder to predict.
So, by standing in front of the display, you add an additional variable to the code, making it even harder to hack. Isn’t that interesting?
What the fuck.
Everyone who’s been talking to me knows i’ve been working on this comic about wlws and cats for a while and i’m so so happy it’s finally here!!! :D
idea stolen from this post :’3
MCDONALDS! MCDONALDS! MCDONALDS!
DINOSAURS OVER THE YEARS
This is a series of posters I made to show how our perception of Dinosaurs and other animals of the mesozoic changed over the years. These and few more are featured in a Youtube video you can watch HERE
this art is available for prints, t-shirts and other goods HERE
so this is really cool for a number of reasons!! but the sociology one is what’s got my brain going.
Obvs our understanding of dinosaurs has changed as we got to learn more about them and got better techniques for reconstructing fossils and shit but!!! I wonder just how much of the ‘dinosaurs are animals’ comes from people growing up with them?
like. if you look at the 1800s reconstructions, they’re mean! They’re big scary monsters. they look like they came right out of a medieval bestiary. but no one really knew what a dinosaur was in the 1800s; they were New and Exciting, so much so that they got a whole exhibit at the Crystal Palace if I remember right.
but by the 2010s literally everyone who studies dinosaurs has just … grown up with them? they’re a thing that’s existed in the world that you can learn Cool Facts about that died a long time ago. they’re part of the background noise of earth from the time you’re, like, three years old.
i wonder just how much of the transformation dinosaurs have gone through- from MONSTER to “thing you might see in your back garden”- is just because people have grown up with dinosaurs.
hang on what the hell is this about tall stegosaurus
Can we talk about the Elasomosaurus being the freaking Loch Ness Monster?
i didnt even read the post because as soon as i saw this dude i needed to put sunglasses on him
At some point someone realized “oh shit, we put elasmosaurus on backwards”
Good morning! I’m salty.
I think we, as a general community, need to start taking this little moment more seriously.
This, right here? This is asking for consent. It’s a legal necessity, yes, but it is also you, the reader, actively consenting to see adult content; and in doing so, saying that you are of an age to see it, and that you’re emotionally capable of handling it.
You find the content you find behind this warning disgusting, horrifying, upsetting, triggering? You consented. You said you could handle it, and you were able to back out at any time. You take responsibility for yourself when you click through this, and so long as the creator used warnings and tags correctly, you bear full responsibility for its impact on you.
“Children are going to lie about their age” is probably true, but that’s the problem of them and the people who are responsible for them, not the people that they lie to.
If you’re not prepared to see adult content, created by and for adults, don’t fucking click through this. And if you do, for all that’s holy, don’t blame anyone else for it.
This needs to be reblogged today.
Consenting to see adult content doesn’t mean you should have to see a bunch of shit romanticizing incest and pedophilia you walnut
Except this is the last line of consent before the actual work. So if you’re at this button you have already done the following:
1) chosen to go onto AO3 in the first place
2) chosen the fandom you wish to read about
3) had the chance to filter for the things you do want to see like a specific pairing or a specific AU
4) had the chance to specifically filter out any tags you don’t want to see like, oh I don’t know, incest and non-con and dub-con and paedophilia
5) had the chance to set the rating level if you wish to remove any explicit content at all
6) have read the summary of the story, which aren’t always great but are the only indicator of what the story will be like writing wise so something about it was good enough for you to click on it.
7) have read the tags of the story which will tell you what is actually in the story. If you have used filters to remove stories with things you don’t want then there shouldn’t be anything in here that’s a shock to you but maybe there is. That’s why the tags are there for you to check for yourself.
8) Then you have to actually click on the story. You cannot see anything other than the summary or the tags without personally deciding that you are going to open and read this story.
9) Only here, at step number nine, do you get to the adult content warning pictured above. You have been through eight different steps, the last six of which have also been opportunities for you to see that this has adult content. And AO3 has *STILL* stopped you to ask one last time “are you sure you want to read this because it has things that only adults should see in it”.
If after this point you are reading incest and paedophilia then it’s probably because you specifically went looking for it.
This is the most beautiful thing that I have seen about ao3
Cannot stress ‘you walnut’ enough
I saw this and thought of @fleamontpotter.
OP HOW CAN YOU NOT ADD THE BEST PART OF THIS TWEET THREAD
