I like the slash, and I think I like it because I feel there are so many people who are under-represented—or not represented at all—in mainstream Hollywood entertainment. I really enjoy the fan fiction that embraces character and themes that showcase those people—their love, their desires, their passions. I think that’s really cool—and I hope the show as it continues embraces that more, because that’s an opportunity to tell stories that other people might not be familiar with. I mean, there’s slash of me and Ichabod… that’s like, ‘What?!’ and then I read it and it was really well-written. I get it—it’s another way to go but it’s no less valid than what we’re doing and it’s certainly interesting, so I really get a kick out of that. To read fan fiction and to see fan art and to watch other people’s artistry paint different colors on top of what we’re doing… how can you be mad at that? That’s just completely awesome!

A 12-year-old schoolgirl has been accepted into Mensa after discovering she is brainier than both Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.
Olivia Manning, from Liverpool, managed to get a whopping score in an IQ test of 162 - well above the 100 average.
Her score is not only two points better than genius German physicist Einstein and Professor Stephen Hawking, but puts her in the top one per cent of intelligent people in the world.

FUCK YEAAAAAH!!!
(and of course the mainstream media won’t even acknowledge this because women doing smart things in math or science? GEDOUTTATOWN.)

This is so awesome!

SIGNAL BOOST! This is AMAZING!

woah

“she
managedto get”
Please tell me I’m not the only one seriously irked by this wording.


She’s a kid who got higher on Mensa than two adults revered by the scientific and intellectual community world wide. SHe should be their god. Her brain’s not even done cooking yet; when she’s finished, she might be 180. 230!

Later, he told me the story of how he had fallen for me at the bus stop: He saw me looking at him and so he stared back, but I didn’t flinch or blush or look away, I just held his gaze. He made faces, and I stared him down. He gestured for me to come over and join him. I looked at him steadily for a few beats more and then looked away. “You were so cool,” he said, already so disappointed by me. “Why aren’t you like that anymore?” I didn’t tell him the truth: that I was not cool, I was shortsighted and too vain to wear my glasses, so I hadn’t seen him at all or registered any of his faces or gestures – he was just another boy-shaped blur at the bus stop. — Catherine Egan explores the lure of the bad boy in “I Love You and I Want To Kill You; Let’s Make Out.”

Learned about The Young Elites hitting #4 on the NYT list right as we discovered a beautiful patch of flowers in Hood River, Oregon, all underneath a full rainbow arc. Completely overwhelmed. I love you all. Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart. <3<3<3

“The sexts are just their currency. The girls described it to me as, “Oh, [it’s like] the guys are collecting baseball cards or Pokémon cards.” They don’t take actually take them that seriously. They’re not a huge part of their sex life, it’s just something [the boys] collect. … It’s cool to have one that nobody else has. It’s kind of a social currency more than it is a springboard for fantasy, which is kind of surprising.”
