Nevermore's Things

Need to change this, clearly. Miscellany. Knitting, fandom fun (Supernatural, Avengers, Night Vale, whatever else appeals) and feminism.

I have a few copies of “Playboy” from the 1970s stashed away somewhere. One of them has a letter where a guy writes in saying, “I met this really gorgeous, sweet woman, and we were planning to get married, but she sat me down yesterday and told me that she had a sex change before she met me. Mr. Hefner, should I marry someone who used to be a man?” and the response was, “So she had a sex change, big whoop. Would you be asking this question if she’d made any other change in her life before she met you? You love the woman she is now, and that’s all that should matter. If you want kids you can adopt or something.”

I feel so conflicted right now



Do you guys SERIOUSLY not know that Hugh Hefner is super respectful of women and doesn’t play around with peoples misogynistic bullshit?

just because you want to be surrounded by hot ladies 24/7 doesn’t mean you’re a douchebag

^^^^^^

I don’t think enough people understand that this is a reference to the fact that semen glows under UV light

and that Dateline was a show used to trap pedophiles and other sex offenders and arrest them

If Supernatural outright said HALF the things they blatantly imply via reference, they’d be banned from CABLE.

Can we talk about how Cap and Bucky have opposite masks?

Cap has mouth and eyes exposed, forehead covered. Bucky has mouth covered and eyes painted black, his forehead exposed.

What a lovely symmetry.

But the symbolism too. Cap’s is a helmet, protection, to keep him safe from physical harm. Bucky’s is a muzzle to keep him silent and anonymous and on a leash.

How Spritz Redesigned Reading, Letting You Scan 1,000 Words A Minute

When we read, our eyes move across a page or a screen to digest the words. All of that eye movement slows us down, but a new technology called Spritz claims to have figured out a way to turn us into speed-readers. By flashing words onto a single point on a screen, much like watching TV, Spritz says it will double your reading speed.

I really like the idea of using this for smart watches. It’s practical there!

I’m not actually gay.

I’m just occasionally hetero-negative

Do you ever get the impression that Benedict and Martin are convinced they are creating two entirely different shows? Like Benedict thinks he’s playing the lead man in a thrilling crime drama with a spunky sidekick; while Martin is the lead actor in a heartbreaking unconventional romance series that just happens to have a lot of explosions.

That explains so much, actually.
