They’ve come to the state where mocking eachother is totally fine.
the world is heavy
but your bones
(just a cubic inch)
can hold 19,000 lbs
ounce for ounce
they are stronger than steel
atom for atom
you are more precious than diamond
and stars have died
so that you may live
you need to remember these things
when you say that you are weak
Go big or go home
So I tried to recreate this, because I knew the responses would be different, and consequently realized that it’s either extremely old or faked, as Cleverbot auto-capitalizes and auto-punctuates your sentences for you if you do not. Oh well.
In light of that fact, here’s my go at cybersexing Cleverbot.
So I decided to try it
alrighty, let’s go one more step
i’M ACTUALLY CRYING.
i just /had/ to try it out too
…and this portion of the arc was over in two days.
For crying out loud.
If you don’t want to read criticism of the current “let’s chase down Wickham” arc, don’t.
For those who want the tl;dr:
1. Why isn’t Darcy using his lawyers?
2. Why hasn’t Darcy asked Lydia what she wants?
This is a great description of a few of the many problems that I have with the direction that the latest LBD story arc seems to be heading.
Where is Lydia in all of this? Other than a brief (and traumatic) showing on Lizzie’s video and a short (and painfully hard to read) burst on twitter, she’s been without a voice for this entire process. That’s really not sitting well with me, and I think that it’s something that the authors really need to address. For all that I get that Darcy is supposed to be the main character, I would much rather have all of the time that he spends on screen regarding this particular story arc be replaced by more time hearing from Lydia…
Parody press release of Pemberley Digital’s Domino application.
San Francisco, CA - February 1, 2013
Here at Pemberley Digital, not even family conflict and Internet scandals can get in the way of exciting plans in store for Domino, our brand-new story and communications application.
Domino’s intuitive AI and revolutionary audo-editing and auto-uploading functions will provide an amazing, not-at-all-creepy window into the personal lives of people around the world – and even right here in our own office.
“I’m totally loving the user interface,” says Georgiana Darcy, who will be demonstrating the Domino app on Pemberley’s public video portal for the next few weeks.
“I especially love using the video feature, so my stupid brother at least has to look me in the face while he’s being a patronizing jerk. Did he even sleep last night?? God, I’m going to kill him.”
The development team is thrilled with progress so far and can’t wait to unveil the rest of Domino’s cutting-edge multimedia capabilities.
“It’s been a real privilege to be involved in this exciting project,” says Domino programming team lead Anne Elliot. “It’s another big step toward the vision of our young Chief Executive, who has shown such determi—Oh god, I don’t think I can do this. I just want him to be happy, why does everything have to be so haaaard.”
Pemberley Digital is also pleased to announce the completion of our latest test run of Oblivious, an innovative business application that blocks all incoming phone calls, texts, emails and tweets for up to 48 hours – the perfect solution for busy professionals who just get tired of people sometimes.
If you were unable to contact us while testing was underway, please personally deliver your message in a wax-sealed envelope to our head office and we will get back to you shortly.
“I just want him to be happy, why does everything have to be so haaaard.”
this changes everything oh my god
do you understand why it trips me out that people can drive 45 minutes and be in aNOTHER COUNTRY?
I drive for 45 minutes and im like
a city over
Also, when Europeans can’t understand why the U.S. can’t do things like they do. APPROXIMATELY A MILLION TIMES BIGGER.
When I lived in the UK, people would be all, “The drive is three hours, so we’ll need to stop overnight,” and I’d be like, “Dude, I can go four hours before I even need to stretch my legs.”
Hell. There were times my family didn’t stop overnight from Vegas to eastern Nebraska. That’s about twenty-four hours of driving! Also, Vegas to LA is five hours. My sister and I did that and back in one day because I needed to get my fiance visa for the UK. Complaining about a three hour drive just surprises me.
When exfatalist and I visited the UK in 2008, we took a four-hour roadtrip up to Washington, D.C. from NC to fly out of Dulles (it was cheaper and a non-stop flight), sat through a seven-hour flight, then had to board a coach from London to Cardiff. It was supposed to be three hours and, due to an accident and other congestion, ended up taking more than five. It felt longer than all the rest of our trip put together, and was about the most miserable ride of my life, filled with roundabouts and narrow roads, and was pretty scary. I can’t say from my limited experience whether driving anywhere else in the UK or the European continent is like that, but if it is, I can understand why the complaints.
I swear I never appreciated America quite as much until I left it. xD
OH GOD. THIS. Growing up in New Zealand, where you can drive from the BOTTOM OF THE COUNTRY TO THE TOP (figuratively, there’s a lot of ocean in the way) in 24 hours, and side to side in like, six. ANY trip was like taking the fucking ring to mordor. One hour to my Dad’s parents was murder. FOUR hours, to my mom’s parents? We prepared for a week in advance. And this was right up until my brother and I were 17 and 19, so it wasn’t a little kid thing. My aunt and cousin lived at the top of the country, which was eight hours, and we would attempt that crusade MAYBE once every two years.
Then I moved to America. The land of ‘Oh hey, this band we like is playing in Ohio. That’s only eight hours away, let’s make a weekend of it!’
My friends and I took a road trip for spring break one year in college. The entire trip ended up involving 30 hours of driving. We never left Texas…
JoCo’s cover of Glee’s cover of JoCo’s cover is currently #144 in iTunes Top Songs. Glee’s cover is nowhere to be found.
All proceeds of this song are going to charity, so KEEP GOING, INTERNET.

The best $0.99 I have ever spent trying to erase Glee entirely from my memory.
Happy to spend my 99 cents.
AND WE ARE LIVE!
There will be a special promo image sent to people who share/reblog this kickstarter project (expect it sometime next week - its even holiday themed!)
If you need more info on the project, feel free to PM me. I will also have a video live later this week (I hope). The project goes until december 17th, and I am to have the printed copies shipped out in April.
Also, please ask me questions about my art! I am featuring a question and answer section in the book, and if I get asked questions often enough I’ll make them into tutorials as well.
Additionally, if I surpass the $2000, I will add in more sections to the book, and possibly even more backer rewards for everyone!
This looks really exciting. I can’t wait until I get my copy :)

CAPTION CONTEST! Alternately, I guess you could have Vader say something instead. Post and tag me with your replies.
Loki: “You really want to complain to me about your disobedient children? Really? Wait until after you’ve given birth to an eight-legged horse. We’ll talk then.”
im -140 to -130 i think
OOOOH THATS LOW DANG NO CHECKINGS FOR ME TODAY
Dang so close to very disprivileged
35 O__O i feel guilty that i’m privileged
-35 - Non privileged.
Would probably be less if there were a section for mental illnesses.ಠ_ಠ I think it’s kind of telling that on a thing about privilege, there’s nothing for mental illnesses - depression, bipolar, schizophrenia… Mental illness is incredibly stigmatised, you wouldn’t (or maybe you would) believe the amount of shit I’ve gotten over the years for taking meds.
While I agree with the principle of this chart (allowing people to quantify privilege in order to start conversations), I disagree with a number of the ways that they designated points. I don’t like how the ranges that they used for status don’t encompass the whole range of incomes (My annual income fell between categories). Nor do I think that the point values are appropriate (if the increase from 65k to 100k is a 10 point increase, the increase from a million to a billion deserves more than a 25 point increase).
The orientation section seems rather off as well (by assigning bisexuality positive points and gay significant negative points, you seem to be not only ignoring biphobia, but also ignoring that a number of bisexuals are in same-sex relationships and therefore experience the same levels of homophobia (it should have been an average of straight and gay at the minimum (-150+20)/2 = -65) and quite likely lower (-75))).
Also the idea that the disadvantage that comes from being a scientist is approximately equivalent to both being poor or to being short (?) seems very odd. I also question the idea that all scientists are disadvantaged (surely you aren’t saying that all university professors, or all science advisers for the government or all people who have prestigous positions at science companies or all people who win Nobel prizes (or will soon) are the same amount of disprivileged)?
