On the Brink of Boredom and Obsession
My slow descent into madness

Mostly text posts and other stuff I find funny. A fair amount of HTTYD and Sherlock. Also some Harry Potter, Divergent, Hunger Games, LotR, A:TLA, and LoK. Maybe some SPN and SnK even though I don't watch them.

In the new HTTYD Clothing/HTTYC Fandom, I am Eret's fur vest. What I'm supposed to do with that information, I'm not quite sure yet.



This Is Big: Scientists Just Found Earth’s First-Cousin

Right now, 500 light years away from Earth, there’s a planet that looks a lot like our own. It is bathed in dim orangeish light, which at high noon is only as bright as the golden hour before sunset back home. 

NASA scientists are calling the planet Kepler-186f, and it’s unlike anything they’ve found. The big news: Kepler-186f is the closest relative to the Earth that researchers have discovered. 

It’s the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star—the sweet spot between too-hot Mercury-like planets and too-cold Neptunes— and it is likely to give scientists their first real opportunity to seek life elsewhere in the universe. “It’s no longer in the realm of science fiction,” said Elisa Quintana, a researcher at the SETI Institute. 

But if there is indeed life on Kepler-186f, it may not look like what we have here. Given the redder wavelengths of light on the planet, vegetation there would sprout in hues of yellow and orange instead of green.

isnt it odd how the human mind expands inwardly forever

i can build characters and worlds and universes and define new laws of nature

construct stories and timelines and fit it all together inside my own head

and yet i can’t draw a fUCKING LAMP

Thank you


Dean DeBlois: By aging Hiccup up five years, we didn't want him to suddenly become this strapping, super sexy hero.

Jay Baruchel: Uh, we were never in danger of that, to be honest.
