I need ideas for a fish backdrop for a tank based on a destroyed tea party. I’m pretty good at drawing scenes so I was hoping for something alone those ideas?
What every conversation I’ve ever had with a pansexual person sums up to when asked why bisexuality is different from pansexuality. (No one’s ever explained it better. Can someone help me out here?)
I’m staying off tumblr for the day.
9/11 is a day of remembrance. It’s not a day to make people feel shitty for not tagging things right or posting things you don’t want to see.
Be nice, tag things, but if you forget something or someone forgets something, don’t send them hate.
If it bugs you, get off tumblr, or scroll past it. Especially if you’re someone who’s too young to remember thirteen years ago, if talk about 9/11 makes you upset or uncomfortable, think about how upsetting and uncomfortable it was to live through it. Don’t get angry over someone posting something that wasn’t designed to make you uncomfortable.
If you’re posting things, tag them.
Please remember that a lot of people were hurt, a lot of people lost parents, siblings, and children, and that if talking about it is a way of soothing the wounds that won’t ever heal fully, it’s not your place to deny them of it.
If you don’t want any exposure to 9/11, stay off tumblr. Start a new book. Go to the park. Clean something. Let those who lost something or someone have one day to talk about it, and you find something else to do if it upsets you.
New lights, I learned today, are $30.
I do not have thirty dollars.
I do have a flashlight, rubber bands, tin foil, duct tape, and the space where I took the old, broken light fixture out.
Here’s how to:
Rubber band chains. The holes where the switch of the old light used to go are a good place to feed them through. Tie the rubber band chains together at the top by knotting another rubber band through them and tying in a reef knot.
You can see where I made a little hood for the light our of tin foil.
I don’t have pictures, but now tape the flash light in place with duct tape. The rubber bands are for support. The tape is for balance, to make sure the flash light doesn’t tip one way or the other and fall in the tank (which would be a VERY bad thing). Shake the hood around to make sure the light’s steady. if it’s not, you might need to add something stronger, like wire. Do not put this back on your tank until you are 100% sure it’s not going anyway.
Then just turn it on and put the hood back. This only brightly lights half of your tank, but it does brighten the whole thing. For the first hour after you put it on, check every ten minutes to make sure nothing’s getting too hot, and stay in the room for at least two hours after that so that you can smell any smoke. As with all very sketch DIY’s, it’s only cool if it’s safe.
WIth and without pictures:
(No matter how convincing my floor lamp behind me looks, it’s not in the tank.)
I’m assuming that like all LED flashlights, the brightness is going to decrease sharply after it’s been left on for an hour or so. Good news is that I think a dimmer LED will be a lot better, and that dull flashlights last for quite a while once they’re pretty dull, so this shouldn’t be a giant waste of batteries.
If you can explain to me scientifically what gluten is and why it’s bad for you and the advantages of cutting it out of your diet, I will make you two dozen gluten free cupcakes for the rest of my life.
I’m genuinely curious and when I asked facebook they got very offended.
This is excluding people who have gluten intolerances. I understand very much why you cut gluten out of your diet if your body cannot process it.
