 Some of you are reblogging because you think its funny that programmers would talk to ducks. I’m reblogging because I think its funny picturing a programmer explaining their code, realizing what they did when they explain the bad code, then grabbing the strangling the duck while yelling “WHY WAS THE FIX THAT SIMPLE!? AM I GOING BLIND!”

AS A PROGRAMMER I CAN TELL YOU THAT THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU FUCKING DO WE HAD TO BAN THE DUCKS FROM MY CLASSES BECAUSE EVERYONE WOULD FLIP THE DUCK OR THROW IT AT A WALL OR SOMETHING WHEN THEY FIGURED OUT THE PROBLEM IN THEIR CODE

so that’s the function of a rubber duck

Everyone thinks programmers are so smart but really we’re all just a bunch of crazy duck worshipers.

So after a lighter year on the Cosplay front, with just a handful of relatively simple costumes, I’m ramping up for DragonCon 2015, with 4 costumes in planning for it.

The first, which I have been planning for a bit, is Lorna Dane (Polaris) from Marvel’s All New X-Factor, in her Serval Industries uniform. The right arm is indeed brown, but the one full body frontal image appears to have had that one missed in coloring - all other references show it as brown.

I ordered the swatches from Spandex World, which arrived promptly. They were $0.75 a swatch, but it’s worth it to check fabric weight, color, and texture. I ordered a host of the yellow brown/khaki, and black spandex swatches, and they arrived quite promptly, stapled to two sheets of paper, and labeled with the inventory number, which could be cross referenced against the order sheet.

I’m leaning towards the khaki/brown at the top, and the yellow one hiding behind it. The khaki has a bit of a texture in person, but does not seem to be notable in photographs, which is pretty cool. The black outlines and parts will likely be the black at the bottom. It is nice and flexible, and seems to have similar stretch to the yellow and khaki I have chosen.

Will post the other plans as I have more to show for them. Looking forward to having a project to work on.

Here’s a thing I’ve had around in my head for a while!

Okay, so I’m pretty sure that by now everyone at least is aware of Steampunk, with it’s completely awesome Victorian sci-fi aesthetic. But what I want to see is Solarpunk – a plausible near-future sci-fi genre, which I like to imagine as based on updated Art Nouveau, Victorian, and Edwardian aesthetics, combined with a green and renewable energy movement to create a world in which children grow up being taught about building electronic tech as well as food gardening and other skills, and people have come back around to appreciating artisans and craftspeople, from stonemasons and smithies, to dress makers and jewelers, and everyone in between. A balance of sustainable energy-powered tech, environmental cities, and wicked cool aesthetics. 

A lot of people seem to share a vision of futuristic tech and architecture that looks a lot like an ipod – smooth and geometrical and white. Which imo is a little boring and sterile, which is why I picked out an Art Nouveau aesthetic for this.

With energy costs at a low, I like to imagine people being more inclined to focus their expendable income on the arts!

Aesthetically my vision of solarpunk is very similar to steampunk, but with electronic technology, and an Art Nouveau veneer.

So here are some buzz words~

Natural colors!
Art Nouveau!
Handcrafted wares!
Tailors and dressmakers!
Streetcars!
Airships!
Stained glass window solar panels!!!
Education in tech and food growing!
Less corporate capitalism, and more small businesses!
Solar rooftops and roadways!
Communal greenhouses on top of apartments!
Electric cars with old-fashioned looks!
No-cars-allowed walkways lined with independent shops!
Renewable energy-powered Art Nouveau-styled tech life!

Can you imagine how pretty it would be to have stained glass windows everywhere that are actually solar panels? The tech is already headed in that direction!  Or how about wide-brim hats, or parasols that are topped with discreet solar panel tech incorporated into the design, with ports you can stick your phone charger in to?

panic/anxiety attack

chris-sid:

jaspinder:

  • breath in for 4 seconds
  • hold your breath for 7 seconds
  • exhale breath for 8 seconds

repeat once or twice more.

This causes an autonomic nervous system shift from a sympathetic (fight or flight reaction) state to a parasympathetic response.

Use this for panic/anxiety attacks, exams, presentations.

Never not reblog

Needed this lately. Reblogging for future use. Like Monday at work. -.-
