 I hate linguistic anthropology. Why?
 One of the most influential experiments
 in linguistic anthropology involved
 teaching a chimp asl. One of the most
 influential linguistics is named Noam
 Chomsky. You know what the chimp's
 name was?
 Nim Chimpsky
 Fucking monkey purn
 And this is in textbooks, in
 documentaries, everywhere. And
 everyone just IGNORES THIS GOD
 AWFUL PUN cause of how important
 the experiment was. But
 BUT LOOK AT THIS SHIT. FUCKING NIM
 CHIMPSKY. I HATE THIS WHOLE FIELD.
 dendritic-trees
 Its not just the linguistic
 anthropologists.
 There's a group of very important
 genes that determine if your body
 develops in the right shape/
 organization... they are called the
 hedgehog genes, because fruit fly
 geneticists are all ridiculous. The
 different hedgehog genes are all named
 after different hedgehogs. And then
 someone decided to get clever and
 name one "sonic hedgehog" because
 this is just what fruitfly geneticists do.
 Well sonic hedgehog controls brain
 development, and now actual doctors
 are stuck in the position of explaining to
 grieving parents that their child's lethal
 birth defects or life-threatening tumors
 are caused by a "sonic hedgehog
 mutation".
 And this is why no one will invite the
 fruit fly people to parties
 error-404-fuck-not-found
 Biogeochemical scientists, upon
 discovering the complex mechanisms
 that govern the storage and use of
 molecular iron on our planet, decided to
 call this cycle "the ferrous wheel" We
 groaned about that for at least five solid
 minutes.
 callmegallifreya
 The phenomenon of sneezing when
 exposed to sudden bright light is called
 an Autosomal-dominant Compelling
 Helio Opthalmic Outburst. ACHOO
 Half a byte of data is a nibble.

 An unidentified, repetitive computer
 error is called a Bug, because the first

Confidence, Definitely, and Gif: 6:49 ia Hey David, I've been very busy. And I just realized that I never responded to your last message, I'm extremely sorry about that In response to your question, fine I'lI tell you but don't say I didn't warn youu I actually have a boyfriend. Sexually he's very dominant with me, which is amazing coz that's what I love However, lately I've wanted to put him in the opposite end of things and have him be dominated. Except that I don't want to be the one doing it nor do I want to witness it because he's still my dom and I don't want that image to be tarnished in my head by seeing him be submissive So as outrageous as it sounds, I want a guy to do it for me...to sexually dominate him In return, that guy would then get to borrow me and have some time with me separately Yeah definitely wasn't expecting that That's cool though no judgements at all Although you might want to change you bio to something that eludes to that It would save you time Today 8:59 p.m. May I ask why you're not? Not what? Lol Not judging Not down l'd be down to do stuff with you but the way you seem to explain it is that I have do something with your boyfriend first I'm not bi Kinda why I think you should change your bio - then you could put looking for bi dudes. Save you time This has nothing to do with labels or sexuality, it comes down to your confidence in your own sexuality. One physical act doesn't determine ones sexuality. For example, if a gay guy was to get a BJ from a girl, does it now all of a sudden make him straight? No it doesn't, he's still gay because his desire is in men. Same thing applies here Plus it's not like I've asked you to kiss him or suck his dick. You're just receiving head, that's all...that doesn't make you "gay" or anything like that.

 Hey David, I've been very busy. And I
 just realized that I never responded to
 your last message, I'm extremely sorry
 about that
 In response to your question, fine I'lI
 tell you but don't say I didn't warn youu
 I actually have a boyfriend. Sexually
 he's very dominant with me, which
 is amazing coz that's what I love
 However, lately I've wanted to put him
 in the opposite end of things and have
 him be dominated. Except that I don't
 want to be the one doing it nor do I
 want to witness it because he's still my
 dom and I don't want that image to be
 tarnished in my head by seeing him be
 submissive
 So as outrageous as it sounds, I want
 a guy to do it for me...to sexually
 dominate him
 In return, that guy would then get to
 borrow me and have some time with
 me separately
 Yeah definitely wasn't expecting that
 That's cool though no judgements at
 all
 Although you might want to change you
 bio to something that eludes to that
 It would save you time
 Today 8:59 p.m.
 May I ask why you're not?
 Not what? Lol
 Not judging
 Not down
 l'd be down to do stuff with you
 but the way you seem to explain it is
 that I have do something with your
 boyfriend first
 I'm not bi
 Kinda why I think you should change
 your bio - then you could put looking for
 bi dudes. Save you time
 This has nothing to do with labels
 or sexuality, it comes down to your
 confidence in your own sexuality. One
 physical act doesn't determine ones
 sexuality. For example, if a gay guy
 was to get a BJ from a girl, does it now
 all of a sudden make him straight? No
 it doesn't, he's still gay because his
 desire is in men. Same thing applies
 here
 Plus it's not like I've asked you to
 kiss him or suck his dick. You're just

 I love seeing stony-faced people in queues unable to contain a smile
 when a baby looking over its mother's shoulder in front of them locks
 eyes and does that astonished stare

 when someone is standing in line and they don't quite dance to the
 music playing, but you can SEE their head bop and them mouthing
 the words
 when someone thinks no one's paying attention and they sing-talk
 themselves thru a task
 when they laugh or try to hide a laugh when looking at their phone

 when someone does the thing where they enter another space
 (such as a supermarket aisle) striding with total purpose, then
 suddenly forget what they're doing/looking for, and stop there looking
 blank for a millisecond while they reboot.
 - when people are looking for scissors, in their home or in a store
 and they make the scissors gesture with their non-dominant hand as
 an aid to remind them what they're doing
 when automatic social interactions glitch, like when you tell a waiter
 that you hope he enjoys his food too, or tell the stranger on the
 phone that you love them
 - the hand gesture people make when they're thinking at their
 computer, not typing, and their elbow rests on the table, and they feel
 the edge of their fingernail with their thumb. This is such a lovely little
 gesture and to my knowledge I have never seen it in fiction. You'd
 think it would come up all the time in fic.
 - when you're sharing an experience with a complete stranger (like
 watching a seagull throw up in public, or waiting for a late train) and
 you make eye contact, and some comment to each other, and then
 you guys are, like, ALLIES now. Like you would willingly ride to war
 to save them. You can't make eye contact again, but you are very
 aware of them
 , baffling and complex inner
 - just evidence of other people's rich
 lives

 This... I want to see more of this in writing. They're such giving
 details, I love it.

 "evidence of other people's rich, baffling and complex inner
 lives" is exactly my very favorite thing to see in writing and media
 thanks @elodieunderglass and @happylilprompts. Why does
 realism in storytelling tend to focus on details of pain, fear, or horror
 and so rarely on these sorts of moments, which are just as universal
 and real. When did realistic become synonymous with awful, dark,
 and the abominable "gritty?
