riddled all through with cooling… circuitry or whatever- I don’t know how cooling systems work- and thin tubes leading into a reservoir, opening onto the surface, so it would be porous like pumice
and then if you put it in a humid warm place and turned it on, it would cool down, water would condense on the surface, be drawn into the thin tunnels, and be drawn into the reservoir by capillary action
it is super warm and humid in my room I fucking hate it oh my god
so like boo fucking hoo these are things that were made clear in elementary school
It’s sad how many SJAs on tumblr do not understand this simple concept. (cough genderbitch cough queernonymoose)
I don’t have a strong opinion about either of those people, and I don’t know anything about queernonymoose, but I know that at least genderbitch does understand this concept; it’s the reason she explicitly gives for several of the times she’s been mean or uncivil.

IDK HOW THE FUCK 2 DO THIS can i like color under the lines?
What program are you using? See if you can find a Layers menu or window or whatever. Find the thingy where you can add a new layer. Add the layer and put it on top of your lines. Click around until you find an option for the layer called ‘Multiply’. Color on the layer; the lines should pop out on top. ALTERNATIVELY, if your lines layer is black and white, you can set IT to Multiply and put a Normal layer underneath or another Multiply layer wherever with your colors, and it’ll work the same way.
did ‘cake’ take on new meaning with rihanna’s song or was it used that way before? because,dang,cake meant what asexuals liked better than sex,but now…it’s been co-opted as sexual slang. although i could be years behind the current culture…anyone want to shed some light on this for me?
Food = sex is a v. old metaphor, and you’ve got the etymology a bit wrong there- the original idea is that cake is great if you like/want cake, but some people don’t like it or won’t seek it out, just like sex is great if you like/want sex, but some people don’t like it or won’t seek it out, the ‘asexuals love cake’ thing is a joke that developed from that metaphor- anyway, talking about food, especially dessert, when you mean sex is old as dirt, and it is especially prevalent in e.g. blues, from as far back as we have recordings/transcriptions. And the R&B tradition grows out of blues, of course.
what is a dissociative experience like for those of you who have experienced it?
i find myself feeling very very fucking strange in increasing increments and it’s a good bit unsettling. it’s this absolute numbness and coldness and i feel like i’m watching the world from a camera lens and not processing anything. it lasts for hours at a time, and i’m desperate to not feel like that anymore.
I’ve had things that sound, phenomenologically, like dissociation, but they occur at the weirdest times- I usually can’t identify an anxiety or stressor that brought it on. I’ll suddenly come to and realize that, though I remember everything that has happened in the past few hours, I wasn’t really ‘there’- I was acting on autopilot. I’ll sit in a chair and think too hard and suddenly forget how to move, feeling like I was locked into my head, no longer able to feel like the sensations from my body were really mine- the sensory data from my skin like the feeling of a stiff glove around my entire body. Sometimes things feel dull and heavy and like everything’s had the life taken out of it- other times, things become very light and echoey and disconnected, and I can no longer tell how things relate to one another causally or logically.
