I’m an artist with a molecular biology degree from the University of Washington, and I’ve been working on making science infographics for several months now. 
This week I made an animated identification chart of North American butterflies. You can check out the full sized GIF here or pick up a poster for your room here :)

Since the TFIOS movie became available On Demand and for digital download and people can now pause and zoom in and stuff, many people have asked who wrote the pages of An Imperial Affliction that appear in the movie.
I did. Executive producer Isaac Klausner asked me to write four pages (the two you see here and the final two pages of the book) for the movie edition of An Imperial Affliction, so I did. In this passage, Anna is recalling intense pain breaking through her high doses of narcotic pain medication. 
The book that Hazel reads in the movie is just the four pages I wrote printed over and over again hundreds of times. I have a copy of it in my house; it’s my only souvenir from the movie set.

Remember how everyone’s favorite part of Heath Ledger’s performance in Brokeback Mountain was his almost painful physical repression, his reluctance to express any emotion that wasn’t punching or SHUTTING DOWN? His voice was closed in on itself in a raspy burr — he fell to the ground rather than shed tears — his face was hooded and dark and full of twitching cheek muscles. Kristen Stewart is Heath Ledger, I assure you. She has the same handsome face, the same winsome, masculine smile, the same reluctance to make direct eye contact.

For years, everyone in the world has misunderstood Kristen Stewart’s compressed emotional range. They thought it meant she was a limited actress; it means nothing of the kind. She is John Wayne being forced to play the Maureen O’Hara character. Give her a rail to lean against during a sunset, a military jacket, a toothpick to chew on, and something to squint her eyes against lazily in the distance, and her guardedness will be transformed from unsuccessful femininity to The Great American Male.

Kristen Stewart is a goddamn cowboy.

Really interesting take.

I have such a rampant mistrust for the Sorting Hat. What kind of enchantment lasts a thousand years after its caster’s death? How is this snide piece of regrettable fashion such a master Legilimens that it knows exactly how 11 year old kids are going to turn out? What does it think about while it sits in the Headmaster’s study for untold centuries?

That fucking hat is a Horcrux and nobody can convince me otherwise. And it’s been learning the innermost secrets of every kid to pass through Hogwarts for a millennium and absorbing their power.

The Sorting Hat is going to rise up and murder us all.

the dangers of deluding yourself with body positivity

thriftorama:

Body Positivity Convinced Me That My Abnormal Amount of Body Hair Was Normal So I Didn’t Notice Myself Turning Into a Gorilla. I don’t hate being a gorilla, I just wish I’d known ahead of time.

I Used to be 140 Pounds, But Then I Saw a Picture of A Fat Girl Smiling on the Internet and Now My Goal Weight Is 600.

We The Make Up and Weight Loss Industry Feel First Offended, Second Hurt, and Third Very Left Out; Have a Heart

A Woman I Personally Find Unattractive Wore a Crop Top and I Found Looking at Her Physically Painful. Turns out I just have appendicitis. The two were unrelated. Force me to look at your body and you force me to misidentify the cause of my symptoms.

It Happened to Me: I thought I mattered outside my desirableness to men. Haha, silly me. Here’s how some dudes from Reddit set me straight.

BREAKING NOW. FAT WOMEN EXIST AND OFTEN ENTER PUBLIC SPACES.

Massive Bic Layoffs in the Wake of Women Shaving Their Legs Less. "What we’re looking at here is a total economic collapse," says CEO. "It is the end times. The end times feature a disappointing lack of smooth, hairless babes."

THIN WOMEN OUTLAWED, ALL HETEROSEXUAL MEN NOW REQUIRED TO EXPRESS SEXUAL INTEREST ONLY IN WOMEN WEIGHING MORE THAN 200 POUNDS. Violators face ridicule and even BADLY HURT FEELINGS.

CULTURAL EVOLUTIONIST UNDERSTANDING OF LINK BETWEEN BODY SHAPE AND SEXUAL ATTRACTION UNEQUIVOCALLY REJECTED. “Yeah, that’s bullshit” say scientists.

CELEBRITIES NO LONGER FUNDAMENTALLY BETTER THAN YOU.

Fat people now considered human in radical new bill. 

The Internet is now 96% Totally Smokin’ Selfies, Study Says. We’re all very distracted. By your hot face and bod.

Livestream: Unappealing straight boys crying about insufficient consideration paid to their genitals. Porn and media representation met their poor reality confrontation skills in the middle and now they’re confused as to what women actually look like. More at 11.
