Dildo Generator

Online 3D experiment by Ikaros Kappler which is described as a “Extrusion/Revolution Generator” ….

Created with three.js, you can alter the bezier curves and angle of the form, and is designed with 3D printing in mind (models can be exported and saved, as well as calculated weight in silicone).

Try it out for yourself (if you wish) here

the time is now

#let’s play guess the endgame one more time 

Okay you know what I was just gonna reblog this and say nothing but you know what, I’m pissed off and you wanna know why?

Ted is a Nice Guy. I don’t mean a nice man, no. I mean the motherfucking “Nice Guy” who moans and complains about how women just won’t flock to him and be exactly who he expects of them. He knew from the beginning Robin wanted to focus on her career before marriage. He knew from the beginning she didn’t want kids. She rejected him time after time before they dated the first time. She rejected him time after time after that, for nine goddamn fucking years. His refusal to stop pursuing her, and accept she did not fucking love him, destroyed his relationship with Victoria TWICE. He is the whiny high school teenager bitching because the popular girl he obsesses over just isn’t into him. He is the goddamn Nice Guy, the kind whose every action, every so-called kind deed is done purely out of trying to get Robin to date him.

Robin motherfucking Scherbatsky was an independent woman who not only relied on herself, but expected the men she wanted to be with to be independent and rely on himself, as well. She was career-minded and strong and independent and self-reliant. Those were the traits that doomed her and Ted.

In this gifset we see that Ted did not respect Robin for who she was. He didn’t want her to be self-reliant—he wanted her to rely on him. He’s like so many men out there, so many Nice Guys. Baby, let me take care of you while you put me before everything else, You’re too independent, Robin. I need you to need me, I need you to rely on me. The reason they didn’t work out was because they both wanted and needed different things in relationships, and that’s okay—what isn’t okay is that instead of accepting that, Ted blames her. Tells her that SHE is the reason why they broke up, and something about her is WRONG. He insults her, tells her that her fundamental personality is wrong, and that she is why their relationship failed; that they they just aren’t compatible, no; because she is broken.

She is so upset at this she goes to another ex. He’s the Jerk, you know; the guy who all the Nice Guys in the world call The Asshole. And you know what? You know what this Asshole does? He comforts her, he compliments her. He tells her that those traits, teh traits she’s been belittled and taunted over, the traits that make her broken, the reason why She Can’t Find A Man, are what make her wonderful. Barney loved her for her insecurities, and he supported her independence. He supported her self-reliance. In one scene, this Asshole prove to be far more accepting and mature than the so-called Nice Guy.

So who do she end up with?

[made rebloggable by request]

all the ways.

no, literally, all the ways.

Okay, this is the…super extra sparknotes version of my dissertation on Harry Potter and the ways its worldbuilding is just asking to be shaken to pieces. It’s called:

~*Ten Ways To Irreparably Fuck Up a Civilization: A Harry Potter Rant*~

1.) Put the major base of your economic power—such as a national bank—in the hands of a class you are busy oppressing. Because goblins definitely have forgotten centuries of warfare and specicide anti-goblin sentiment and will totally treat your ancestral gold with the fairness and even-handedness it deserves. Ditto with house elves and your children.

2.) Don’t try to understand or theorize about how your power works. Do not inquire as to how a particular measure—spell, hex, or charm—works. Do not try to test its effects. If a spell builds a house, do not attempt to test the durability of the roof—the roof will have come into existence with the necessary durability for roofs. Do not ask why a perfectly ordinary Latinate word and a stick of wood conjures the Platonic Form of a roof. Have no engineers or philosophers. Make sure no one thinks the phrase “hypothesis.” Make sure no one tests theirs.

3.) Make sure the schooling that you do offer is, essentially, a technical school. Make no attempt to teach students how to write, read, do maths, or think critically, even though those skills may be required. Those who do not arrive with such skills must learn them independently, because helping students with learning disabilities or those who come from difficult home lives is for chumps. Also, make sure to sow the seeds of deep social divides that will persist through your population’s adult life.

…there is no alternative.

4.) Don’t have any institutionalized pre-schooling or post-secondary education. Because everyone worth educating has access to tutors, or parents who have the time, energy, and ability to teach. Do not have institutions for further learning, because there is nothing more to learn. Do no try to understand how your power works.

5.) Allow the government to be the single biggest employer. Small businesses may be tolerated, but private chains, corporations, or conglomerates should not be allowed to operate independently. Make sure that your population gets its news from the government. Dissenting voices that cannot be rendered unemployed can be narratively shamed.

6.) …and then have that government rife with corruption and barely representative. The people in power now should be descendant from the people in power then. They should love their own kind. Trial by jury is unnecessary. Elections are unheard of. Influence talks, and money covers a multitude of sins. Nothing says forgiveness like a bag of galleons and an invitation to the Malfoys’.

7.) Don’t innovate. Your mores should be Victorian and your aesthetic Medieval. “Technology” is a broom, a radio, and an hourglass.

8.) Don’t have any contact beyond the incidental with the civilization literally occupying the same space as yours. Particularly if there is significant crossover in population. In fact, make sure those individuals who emigrate from that civilization cannot return, cannot discuss their new country with friends and family, or use their new-found knowledge to help those friends and family. God forbid they try and help that civilization in turn.

Reduce interest in their world to a laughable hobby. You are the only civilization for them now.

9.) Ensure that all those who do not fall within specific parameters are labeled Other and de facto exiled from your civilization. Particularly squibs and werewolves and other species. An accident of birth implies someone isn’t at fault.

10.) Expect people to quietly stand by. Some of them will. Most of them will. But sooner or later you’ll piss one off, and all the ones who have been afraid to speak out will nod, will join in, and the whole affair will come tumbling down around your ears as that one troublemaker screams to the heavens for justice and knowledge and innovation and truth and light and then my dears


your civilization is well and truly fucked

I Loathe A Traitor (aka: Marietta’s Meta)


So, I’ve mentioned before that Marietta Edgecombe’s treatment in HP bothers me, and gotten several inbox messages basically asking “Why does it bug you so much?” This answer is probably long-overdue, and like everything I write, will likely be just plain long.

What happened to Marietta again?

Marietta Edgecombe was Cho Chang’s best friend, who Cho cajoled into joining the DA. Marietta’s mother, Madam Edgecombe, worked for the Fudge Ministry, and the knowledge that they were disobeying the Ministry to follow Harry (who Marietta distrusted) eventually got to Marietta, who informed Umbridge about the DA. That allowed the Inquisitorial Squad to break up a DA meeting, capture Harry, and almost force Harry’s expulsion - and it did lead to Dumbledore’s departure from the school.

However, Hermione had jinxed the parchment that DA members had signed when they joined up, and when Marietta broke their code of silence, a jinx came into effect: large purple pustules spelling out “SNEAK” covered Marietta’s face. Those pustules faded a little with time, but permanently disfigured her face: after getting out of the hospital wing, she wears a balaclava for the rest of OotP, and the marks are still vislble even under a thick layer of makeup in HBP. 

Marietta is not seen in DH, but in 2007 when JKR was asked about what happened to Marietta and if the scars ever went away, she answered that it faded a little eventually, but still left scars, and punctuated that with “I loathe a traitor!" That implies that Marietta was left permanently scarred by the experience - and not only that, but demonstrates JKR’s explicit approval of the scarring: the perma-scarring is an authorial decision that reflects JKR’s dislike for Marietta and basically holds up the punishment as right and just, something that the author applauds - and that, by extension, we should applaud as well.

JKR and Traitors

I do think that betrayal - particularly betrayal of our heroes - is something that JKR loathes; this may be a part of why Gryffs often try to aggregate Hufflepuff loyalty onto their House traits, because JKR the consummate Gryff values it so highly and deals so harshly with the traitor characters. Characters who are traitors - specifically who betray the heroes of the series - aren’t afforded the sort of moral complexity given to other characters; they’re indelibly marked as bad, not afforded the sympathy given to other complex characters (including those who have betrayed evil characters: Snape is vastly better-developed than Pettigrew, and fandom at large far more sympathetic to the former than the latter.) Pettigrew betrays the Marauders, and is afforded little character development, less real role in the plot, and shunted aside quickly with an unsatisfactory death in DH; Marietta betrays the DA, is permanently scarred, and is generally never afford the sympathy or complexity that she deserves.
