City Council is re-calibrating the gravity of the city today. Citizens are warned to anticipate sudden gravity shifts and stay near objects which can be grabbed onto in the event of a shift. And now, the weather.

DO NOT GIVE OR GET ANY VACCINATIONS FOR YOURSELF OR YOUR KIDS………..
Ok, lets break this down nice and simple.
Formaldehyde is from the purification of the vaccine. 99.9% of which is removed. The reason it doesn’t give a dosage is so minuscule that it can’t be measured without going into picograms. That’s one trillionth of a gram. You breathe in more formaldehyde by driving down a busy road than in a vaccine.
Thimerosal is NOT elemental mercury, It is a molecular compound made up of carbon, hydrogen, mercury, sodium, oxygen, and surfer. This is used as a preservative for the vaccine. Thimerosal is used in a variety of other things, like tattoo ink, facial creams, nasal sprays. It’s toxic to humans only in fairly large quantities but highly toxic to aquatic born organisms like infectious bacteria. In short, it makes sure you don’t get salmonella from a stray bacteria from the chicken embryos.
As for the dosage of the Thimerosal. That is the most laughable point in this post. It says 25 mcg, that’s micrograms, or one millionth of a gram. To put this in perspective, a dollar bill weighs roughly 1 gram, the average human eyelash is around 80-90 micrograms. The box also says that it contains a 5ml (milliliter/cc) vial which leads me to my next point.
A little simple math and we find out that 25 mcg = 0.00003 ml and a little more math we find that 0.00003 ml is 0.00006% of 5 ml. Let me put this another way. By the age of 5, an American child weighs about 50-55lbs and their body contains 55 mcg of Uranium. I don’t see any kids running around with radiation sickness, so I think they’re safe with a preservative in them.
TL;DR: This is like saying you don’t want your child eating their baked birthday cake because raw eggs were used to make it and you don’t want your child getting salmonella from it.
This just in: Use your fucking brain.
Wolf's Rain OP: Stray
WOW I MISS THIS ANIME
via Jesie Castro
I took a couple of hours out of my day to be on a panel for Young Author’s Day, an event put on by the Pacific Northwest Writer’s Association. I was invited to join by John Lustig, who I feel very lucky to call my friend and mentor. We answered the usual questions about the writing process and how we broke into comics, but I was even more intrigued by the audience. Notice something about them?
Yeah. GIRLS. Very. Young. Girls.
So I asked THEM some questions. “How many of you read comics?”
All hands went up.
"How many of you want to make comics some day?"
Most of the hands went up.
Here’s where it really got interesting. “How many of you BUY comics?”
Only one hand raised. I asked her where she buys her comics. She said, “At the comic book store.”
"Do you have a comic book store you like going to?" I asked.
She hesitated. “It’s complicated.”
That’s 10 year-old speak for “I have to go there to get comics but the store makes me uncomfortable.” The rest of them read webcomics. None of them had heard of Comixology before, but they knew all about it by the time the panel was over. What comic would they like to see most? Minecraft. Only Steve needs to be a girl.
It was a fascinating experience, especially in the wake of this article detailing why girls in the 1980s (like me and one of the moms nodding eagerly in the audience) stopped buying comics for 20 years.
The future of comics is bright indeed.
This is absolutely wonderful.
because Sophie has read her scripts for season 5 and she was talking about the show and knows nothing of the next book.
Honestly Sansa ~using her sexuality~ is just… not /her/ at all, she doesn’t knowingly or independently do this in the books, and she doesn’t really show any inclination to other than to just go along with what Petyr wants (and she isn’t okay with it, nor is she using it to some advantage). imo, I’ve pictured her manipulation of him being more along the lines of going along with his plans, publicly aligning with him (i.e. the Alayne facade) and playing up the innocent girl image rather than a sexualised one. It’s such a complex dynamic and it does both characters a disservice to make it some kind of femme fatale thing, Sansa is FOURTEEN (thirteen in the books and at the very oldest I would estimate fifteen in the show). D&D seem to struggle a lot with writing female characters who aren’t a hollow, poorly conceived “badass” or “seductress” trope and it looks like they’re going with the latter with Sansa. To make her more interesting to dudebros now that Sophie is 18, I suppose (and hey, it’s working with all those maddening comments about how Sansa is “finally” interesting and “finally” playing the game).
Sansa is not Cersei or Margaery 2.0, she grows into her confidence through realising she is smarter than everyone has been telling her. Like George reiterated here, Sansa has her wits, just like Petyr does. imo it’s primarily her wits she uses as a weapon, not her sexuality - at least at this point, as she is a child. I had my worries about all this when she stepped out in that sexualised maleficent looking costume and it looks like my suspicions were correct.
They also skipped over so much of Sansa actually learning the game and figuring stuff out, and being taught by LF, so having her suddenly be this master manipulator and being “better” than LF has just done her development - and his, but most importantly hers - a disservice (and yes, I know she’s been manipulating for a long time, but it just went up a notch far too quickly).
So like, I don’t expect her to be in any R rated shenanigans next season, but Sansa suddenly being confident and sexual and manipulating him (and him not realising what she’s doing, jfc) is just really weird to me and I don’t feel good about it? I don’t quite know how to express myself about it because it’s uncharted territory and we don’t know what’s happening in TWOW. I just don’t think it’s this. It doesn’t feel genuine and it’s like they’ve seized the opportunity to make Sansa more interesting (in their eyes) and they’re veering off course with her development and turning her into something else.
