The year 1969 comes up to you and asks what sort of marvels you’ve got all the way in 2014.

You explain that cameras, which 1969 knows as bulky boxes full of film that takes several days to get developed in dark rooms, are now instant affairs of point-click-send-to-friend that are also much higher quality. Also they can take video.

Music used to be big expensive records, and now you can fit 3,000 songs on an iPod and get them all for free if you know how to pirate or scrape the audio off of YouTube.

Television not only has gone HDTV and plasma-screen, but your choices have gone from “whatever’s on now” and “whatever is in theaters” all the way to “nearly every show or movie that has ever been filmed, whenever you want it”.

Computers have gone from structures filling entire rooms with a few Kb memory and a punchcard-based interface, to small enough to carry in one hand with a few Tb memory and a touchscreen-based interface. And they now have peripherals like printers, mice, scanners, and flash drives.

Lasers have gone from only working in special cryogenic chambers to working at room temperature to fitting in your pocket to being ubiquitious in things as basic as supermarket checkout counters.

Telephones have gone from rotary-dial wire-connected phones that still sometimes connected to switchboards, to cell phones that fit in a pocket. But even better is bypassing them entirely and making video calls with anyone anywhere in the world for free.

Robots now vacuum houses, mow lawns, clean office buildings, perform surgery, participate in disaster relief efforts, and drive cars better than humans. Occasionally if you are a bad person a robot will swoop down out of the sky and kill you.

For better or worse, video games now exist.

Medicine has gained CAT scans, PET scans, MRIs, lithotripsy, liposuction, laser surgery, robot surgery, and telesurgery. Vaccines for pneumonia, meningitis, hepatitis, HPV, and chickenpox. Ceftriaxone, furosemide, clozapine, risperidone, fluoxetine, ondansetron, omeprazole, naloxone, suboxone, mefloquine, – and for that matter Viagra. Artificial hearts, artificial livers, artificial cochleae, and artificial legs so good that their users can compete in the Olympics. People with artificial eyes can only identify vague shapes at best, but they’re getting better every year.

World population has tripled, in large part due to new agricultural advantages. Catastrophic disasters have become much rarer, in large part due to architectural advances and satellites that can watch the weather from space.

We have a box which you can type something into and it will tell you everything anyone has ever written relevant to your query.

We have a place where you can log into from anywhere in the world and get access to approximately all human knowledge, from the scores of every game in the 1956 Roller Hockey World Cup to 85 different side effects of an obsolete antipsychotic medication. It is all searchable instantaneously. Its main problem is that people try to add so much information to it that its (volunteer) staff are constantly busy deleting information that might be extraneous.

We have the ability to translate nearly major human language to any other major human language instantaneously at no cost with relatively high accuracy.

We have navigation technology that over fifty years has gone from “map and compass” to “you can say the name of your destination and a small box will tell you step by step which way you should be going”.

We have the aforementioned camera, TV, music, videophone, video games, search engine, encyclopedia, universal translator, and navigation system all bundled together into a small black rectangle that fits in your pockets, responds to your spoken natural-language commands, and costs so little that Ethiopian subsistence farmers routinely use them to sell their cows.

We’re living in the future. And it is on the way to get better, at least with some work…

Hey, guys.

You’ve probably been painfully aware of just how inactive I’ve been this summer, and or that I apologize.  However, I have a reason for all the disappearing and the inactivity.  Reason is pictured below.

image

This fluffy little brat is named Panic.  He and all his siblings were wandering around the car lot that I work at until this particular guy got a botfly larva in his chin and it had to be removed.  Unfortunately, that was only the beginning of his medical problems.

About a week after I got him, I noticed that he was doing this.

image

i.e. Not walking on his back left leg.

According to the doctor, he has a bone infection, and an unstable joint.  Because of future complications, the doctor has recommended that the leg be amputated, in the price range of $300-400.  No exact price was given to me, so I’ll set the goal at $350.

I’ve had this cat for a good month now, and he is the loviest, most endearing little cat I’ve ever had the joy to take care of.  Now all I want is your help.

To raise funds for the expensive necessity of an amputation, I’ll be running commissions.

I’ll run commissions in both my regular style and a chibi style.  Of my regular style, there are lots of examples here, and while my chibi style is much less used, here are two examples.

Prices

Chibi - $5
Rough sketch - $5
Lineart - $10
Coloured - $15
All prices are per character
Add $1 for shading and $2 for background

Please send me a message on either killjoys—-make-some-noise or grinningchaos to place your orders, but here are my rules.

1. No sexually explicit requests.  I will do kissing and cuddling without question.  If you’d like something more suggestive than that, please message me and we’ll work something out!

2. Order hardcore gore at your own risk Again, this is something that can be discussed and worked out.

3. I’m only accepting payment via PayPal.  While a wonderful gesture and perfectly fine otherwise, I would be far too worried about losing the money in the mail to allow mail-in payment.  If for whatever reason you don’t want a commission, but you still want to help, I would be eternally grateful for donations as well.

Everything else regarding content is up for grabs - any and all ships, OCs, fanart, whatever you want.

I’ll be posting a picture of Panic for every commission received, with special videos at every $100 earned!

Okay!  My PayPal’s over at kousei.reborn@gmail.com.  Please make sure to send me a message before you send me payment.  Even if you can’t buy/can’t afford/don’t want a commission, please reblog this post.  It means everything to me and to Panic.  Please help me save my cat!

I will edit this post with a commission chart as soon as I have more time to do so.

Signal boost!  Please help my friend take care of this lovely boy.

It’s impolite to call young Khajiit “kittens”

talesofelswyer:

The correct name for them is “cubs”. You can hear Khajiit saying that ingame. Kittens are young cats, so calling Khajiit like that is disrespectful.

Claiming there is no other life in the universe is like scooping up some water, looking at the cup and claiming there are no whales in the ocean.

westerosimatriarchy:

When people say they don’t want their kids ‘influenced’ by seeing homosexuality portrayed on tv, in books, in public, etc, what they’re really saying is ‘if my kid isn’t straight, I want them to be too uneducated to understand so they’ll be forced to stay in the closet and it doesn’t become my responsibility to face things that make me uncomfortable’

Fuck it, I’m starting my own History Channel.

everythingsbetterwithbisexuals:

The slogan will be ARE YOU READY TO LEARN SOME HARDCORE REAL-ASS SHIT, MOTHERFUCKERS?!

First off, we’re going to have a show with a comedic edge hosted by Jessica Williams entitled, “Shit White Men Didn’t Fucking Invent, For Fuck’s Sake, No Matter What You Think.” I figure six seasons and a movie shouldn’t be a difficult expectation.

We’re going to have a show called, “What The Fuck Is Wrong With You?” denouncing stupid conspiracy theories. Once a year on the anniversary of the moon landing, whichever astronaut would like to scream obscenities at people who believe the moon landing was faked will get to do so.

We’re going to do two paired shows about the presidents of the United States. One will be called “What [The President] Did Right” and the other will be called “What [The President] Did Wrong.” There will be no time limit on either episode. I expect the “What Reagan Did Wrong” episode to be approximately seventeen hours long.

And we’re also going to do the same thing for every other world leader, goddamn it, because we are NOT the most important people on the planet.

We’re going to do White History Month the way it should be done — by showing every goddamn thing white people have fucked up since time began. You already got something like twelve to sixteen years of education about how awesome white people were throughout history. Don’t come crying to me when you suddenly get that White History Month you wanted and it turns out we were absolute smug selfish abusive murdering shitsacks.

We’re going to learn about mathematicians and scientists and artists and performers and royalty and peasants and anyone who’s had a hand in making history, no matter where they were from. We’re going to have documentaries about every goddamn country on the planet, especially the African ones, because for fuck’s sake Africa is not a fucking country.

We’re going to have documentaries about disasters that happened in Africa and Asia and the Middle East that don’t fucking focus on white tourists. We’re going to have a show called “Hey, Everybody, Stop Being a Dick” where people talk about bigotry and -isms they experience every day from other people, and how many of these -isms haven’t progressed so much as changed. We’re going to have a show about gay rights that focuses on shit you never see in the mainstream like the homeless LGBT youth population and biphobia in the media.

We’re going to have a bunch of shows where we pick a date at random, and we show you what your everyday life would be like if you were poor or rich, or what you would do socially, or what kind of slang you would use and what you’d be reading. We’ll have a concert playing songs which would have been popular at the time. And we’ll have a show where we show what people would have been wearing at the time so you know.

We’re going to have shows about mass shootings which never mention the shooter’s names but tell you about every goddamn victim. We’re going to have made-for-TV docu-dramas that aren’t just about shit that happens in the United States. We’re going to have an entire department devoted to standing up and saying, “There are not enough women in the crowd in the background of this scene,” and, “Why is the only black man in this miniseries playing the fucking Devil?!” and anything else that needs to be pointed out to keep us from looking like assholes.

And hey, we’ll talk a LOT about the fact that poor people throughout history have done impossibly hard jobs for not enough money without only doing so because we can get Nielsen ratings out of them if we do.

THINX Underwear:

OH SHIT YOU GUYS THIS COMPANY IS MAKING UNDERWEAR THAT IS STAIN RESISTANT, ANTIMICROBIAL, AND WILL ABSORB UP TO 6 TEASPOONS OF LIQUID BUT STILL LOOKS FUCKING SEXY

AND DID I MENTION THIS PART:

For every pair of THINX you buy, you help one girl in the developing world stay in school by providing her with seven washable, reusable cloth pads.

AND WHY IS THAT SUCH A BIG DEAL? HERE’S WHY:

After doing some research, Agrawal says she found that more than 100 million girls in the developing world were missing a week of school because of their periods, and using things such as leaves, old rags, or plastic bags in the place of sanitary pads.

THE SIZES RUN FROM XS TO XXL AND THE PRICES ARE NOT INSANE, THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN THOSE 5 FOR $10 SALES AT TARGET BUT YOU WON’T HAVE TO THROW THEM OUT BECAUSE YOU MISCALCULATED YOUR FLOW AND BLED ALL OVER THEM BEFORE YOU COULD GET TO A BATHROOM

I’M SORRY FOR SHOUTING I’M JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS

LIKE HOLY FUCKBASKET IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME

Yooooooo

YESSSSSS
