Because of the weight of the ends of the forks, and how they’re distributed behind the penny (closer to the glass), the center of gravity of the whole system is actually shifted quite significantly. If I’m right, it would actually have to be right where the penny meets the glass. This mean, in a sense, all the “weight” of the system of the forks and penny is resting right on that point, rather than out in the air, so if you balance it, it’ll be stable on the glass.



…….Close enough

Reblogging for that last comment.

That last comment is fucking gold.

So, my other half posted something via the share links from imgur… and it’s getting like THOUSANDS of notes and flooding the crap out of his dashboard. Anyone know if there’s a way to make those NOT show up on his front page so he can actually see what people are posting without scrolling for 3 miles?

I swear Tumblr needs that feature which is like the one thing Facebook got right (and therefore has probably removed by now) where you can “unsubscribe” from a post so it stops sending to 50 billion notifications. Like, at least have a way to make them not show up on your dash, just on your activity feed, because omfg.



Review: Portland Black Lipstick Company

Anyone who went through a babybat phase knows the horrors of costume makeup. Black lipstick in particular is something that’s easy to come by in the Halloween section of the local drugstore. You know the one. Cheap, greasy, lasts about five minutes before melting off your face? Yeah we’ve all been there. Let’s try not to think about it anymore. For a while now I’ve been on the hunt for a perfect grown up black lipstick. “Perfect” meaning it must meet the following requirements:

1. Affordable—there are some higher end black lipcolors out there that get great reviews, but frankly I can’t spend thirty bucks on a lipstick. I have bills to pay, and booze to buy.

2. Opaque—a lot of the cheaper stuff is very sheer. I wanted maximum coverage.

3. True black—not a dark purple or blue like cheaper lipsticks

4. Long lasting—something I can wear all day, every day without having to touch it up often.

After a bit of searching and reading other reviews online, I finally found my perfect match at Portland Black Lipstick Company, a small indie cosmetics company based in (duh) Portland, Oregon. The fact that their products are independently and ethically produced is a bonus on top of meeting all four of my criteria. I bought their Original Black Lipstick back in September, and it’s been my absolute favorite lip color ever since.

At nine dollars plus shipping, it’s way too affordable not to try. Because it’s so inexpensive I had some doubts about it’s quality, but I was pleasantly surprised. You get much more than you pay for here. The photos above were taken after one swipe, and you can see that the color and the coverage is excellent. It has exactly the sort of black leather look I wanted. And it really does last all day! I wear it to work almost every day now and other than touching up after eating, I hardly need to worry about it at all.

The only drawback I can find is that the lip balm style tube it comes in can make application a little messy, but if you’re careful (or use a lip brush) it’s no biggie. Only a small flaw in an otherwise excellent product.

I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a very affordable, high quality black lipstick. They have lots of other interesting colors that I see myself trying in the future. I’ll be sure to post more photos when I do.

I know the lady behind this one-woman business, and have talked a good bit with her about her work. She’s recreating Victorian cosmetics using original recipes, and considering all the petrochemical-based stuff available on the mainstream market, her creations are a nice alternative for those of us concerned with the environment and what we put on and in our own bodies.



Sometimes I wonder what will happen to this little not-quite-a-blog when I am gone. Not necessarily dead, though that is a definite possibility, but given that this is anonymous, should that be the case, how would any of you know the difference between me giving up on the “chaos crammed into a…

I often wonder similar things. How will my friends know if something happens to me and I just vanish from online? How will I know if they do?

In at least one case, my other friends knew someone that knew a friend irl, so were able to tell me when he died (may the old bastard finally have rest), but how often, really, does that happen?




     “I got both of them from local shelters. When I got her in 2006, the staff told me she was a shepherd husky. I go to the dog park, I’m meeting people with shepherd husky mixes, and they look nothing like her. I get in my car, I’m driving, I look in the rearview mirror, I see these eyes and I’m like, I’ve got a wolf in my car. Then, when she was 10-months old, there was a shepherd breeder and trainer in the dog park, and at the end of the lesson, the trainer came up to me and asked, ‘What kind of dog is that?’ And I’m thinking, Shepherd husky. You should know, you are a breeder. She said, ‘That’s a wolf.’”

Thats mildly hilarious

If it’s the dog in the picture… no… it’s not a wolf. If it has any wolf in it, it is low content from the look of it. Looks way too “doggish” to be anything mid to high. But more than likely, yes, it is a mix of shepherd and husky, possibly with some other breed thrown in. Husky/shepherd mixes can express in all sorts of ways, depending what the parents looked like (huskies come in a lot of colors after all, and I’ve seen a LOT of those that look very wolfish). It’s possible that it’s a low content wolfdog, but definitely no more than that. It IS, however, a very pretty dog.
