They are literally putting millions of people in danger.

Vaccinate your kids.  Don’t put other kids at risk.

THIS MAKES ME SO ANGRY THAT I WANT TO CRY

HOW FUCKING DARE YOU PUT THE POPULATION AT RISK WITH YOUR IGNORANCE

GOD DAMMIT

Paul Offit’s awesome. We uh, have a birthday card for S’s first birthday signed by him. Because we could. Because he developed the rotavirus vax, and if you’ve ever had that nasty little bug,Offit’s your hero, because it is not kind to kids, and I was insanely sick for a week with rota. And lost about 15 pounds. Kids die from it. Babies die. Its a small thing and it’s a life saver for kids. 

People scream about “too many” vaccines but here’s the sweet sweet truth: we have them for a reason. Not just because people like jabbing babies ( they don’t) and not because it makes wads of cash (it doesn’t) but because there’s a simple way to prevent a whole lot of misery, sickness, death and complications.

Yay for vaccines.

And thank you, Paul Offit. I look forward to explaining to S when he’s older, why this man’s important.

Made in Moscow during World War I, circa 1914 The ring is said to be given by the Russian Empress Alexandra Feodorovna (consort of Tsar Nicholas II) to an officer of the 5th Alexandrian Hussar Regiment of Her Majesty Empress Alexandra Feodorovna. Empress Alexandra was the Honorary Colonel of the Regiment. The skull and cross-bones emblem was officially confirmed by Tsar Nicholas II on October 1, 1913 (“all black with a silver Adam’s head”) as the badge of the Alexandrian hussars. The emblem was considered as a symbol of immortality, rather than a symbol of death. The skull and cross-bones are crafted in silver (over gold) and densely set with 58 old mine and old rose cut diamonds. (via Antique Imperial Russian Diamond Skull Ring at 1stdibs)

He is, however, perfectly willing to fuck with time and reality.
And also steal your infants.

He didn’t steal anything. She literally asked him to take the baby. Don’t make him the bad guy just because she was a shitty sister.

I think you are severely misinformed as to how baby ownership works.
It was not her baby to give.
David Bowie is unquestionably the villain.

Which do you think existed first, modern custody legislature, or the goblin king? 
The girl was entrusted by her parents with the care and custody of the child. By the laws governing the goblin king and his transactions, the girl was the current rightful owner of the child and made a deal with the king to take the child. Perhaps you’re not familiar with english folklore. Fae have rules, they’re tricksters, they can be sneaky, but they never break the rules.

Slammin’ it down in the Labyrinth fandom tonight, kids.

look it my kitty

…the whole point of the movie is that Sarah is her own villain, for crying out loud. The villains are all inside her, whether they’re her parents or specifically her stepmother or her brother for being inconvenient or Jareth. That’s why it’s a coming of age story. Her quest, her growing up, is about seeing others for who they are—whole, real people, with real reasons for what they do—and not obstacles or nuisances or interruptions. Coming to value the world around her as much as her interior one. (Which does NOT mean giving up her interior world—that’s why it ends with the “should you need us” scene.) Her whole arc with Hoggle is basically a fable-ized version of that exact coming to terms.
Also all of the above stated is true re: Jareth and fairies and rules, of course. But the key with Jareth, as it usually is with fairies, is consent. He can’t do anything she doesn’t agree to, though he can make navigating that consent very tricky. Which is the other half of the above realization, of course—in order to see people as people and not as villains, Sarah has to realize that she has power over herself, her actions, her choices, her perceptions. This moment of her growing that little bit up is a transitional moment, which is why the entire episode is catalyzed by fairies, but fairy tales are very rarely really about the fairies. They’re about the results thereof.

fyi the cuffs and more are here.:D go ahead. buy one. i’ll make more.

theoddmentemporium:

Chinese puzzle balls are ornate decorative items that consist of several concentric spheres, each of which rotates freely, carved from the same piece of material. Although the master carvers of old used ivory, in modern times you can find puzzle balls made of synthetic ivory, resin, wood, jade, and other materials. These detailed works of art are usually made up of at least 3 to 7 layers, but the world’s largest puzzle ball is actually made of 42 concentric balls all enclosed one within the other.

Chinese masters rotate a solid ball on a lathe and start by drilling holes toward the center of the objects. Then, using special “L”-shaped tools, they begin to separate the innermost balls. The tool with the longest upright has the shortest cutter, and the one with the shortest upright has the longest cutter. The craftsman lowers the longest tool to the narrow bottom of each hole in turn and rotates it to cut the innermost ball free. Then, using the second longest, which doesn’t reach as far down, but cuts a wider arc, he separates the second ball, and so on, from the innermost to the outermost shell. Because it is easier to work with, the exterior shell is the most elaborately carved, usually featuring an intertwined dragon and a phoenix.

They are solved by aligning all the holes.

i saw these being carved in beijing. I regret that I didn’t bring one home.
