Reminds me of the argument from antiquity. Popular among those promoting non-evidence based medicine. (The graphic I linked to is great.)

I like writing Spock as a flirt.

Too much cute!!!

Oh, the goats. I miss having goats so much.

Great shirt, huh?

Honestly, this isn’t going to become a torrent of Nimoy. I promise. But god, this picture…

Ok, so Leonard Nimoy. As mentioned in a previous post, I met and got myself photographed with the man himself…because I was photographing him for a “House Call" article for the Wall Street Journal.

I really love the top portrait. And yes, those are real Spock ears; the pair that he wore on the last day of filming the original Star Trek TV show. You can see the slide show of images that ran online here.

Fun fact:

Mr. Nimoy starred in a Bruno Mars video for The Lazy Song. It’s hilarious.

What I love about this (the pictures in the slideshow in that article) is that this is a beautiful, stylish home. I mean, even if it didn’t have the kudos of being Leonard Nimoy’s home, I would look at those pictures in awe. The man has grace and style, and you can’t buy that. You can buy the possessions to furnish your grace and style, but you can’t buy the taste.

Fun shark attack facts:

  • In 1996, toilets injured 43,000 Americans. Sharks injured 13.
  • In 1996, 2,600 Americans were injured by room fresheners. Sharks injured 13.
  • In 1996, buckets and pails injured almost 11,000 Americans. Sharks injured 13.
  • For every human killed by a shark, humans kill approximately two million sharks.

Conclusions:

  1. Humans are assholes.
  2. Sharks are not assholes.
  3. Apparently everyone in 1996 lived in a real-life infomercial.

Sometimes you hear someone’s names for their children and you wonder if they got confused and took the list of prospective names for their new cat to the registry office instead.

There’s not going to be tons of Spock, I promise. Just some. And you can Tumblr Saviour the rest.

You’re told that you’re in your head too much, a phrase that’s often deployed against the quiet and cerebral. Or maybe there’s another word for such people: thinkers. — Susan Cain, Quiet  (via dieworten)

I came to believe what people said about me, because so many said the same thing, and the realization that I was defective hurt. I became shyer, more withdrawn. I began to read about deviant personalities and wonder if I would one day “go bad.”

There is so much noise and touch and chaos and sensation going on at the moment that I want to explode or implode or run from the room screaming, and this makes me want to go and shake the psychiatrist by the throat and shout, ‘you didn’t listen to any of this. You didn’t take any of this in. You didn’t care about the way the world overwhelms me and confuses me. You just cared about not labelling and about me not being male and about the fact that I understand metaphor.’ I want to either rip myself apart or shut myself away and I don’t know what, but I know that most people don’t react like that to a room full of their family. Most people don’t feel nauseous at a wall of noise and voices overlapping. Most people aren’t blank faced at jokes, knowing they should be funny but missing the point. Yes, everyone finds life bloody difficult, but not everyone finds it bloody difficult in this way.

I wanted to share with you our Serbian traditional way of dying Easter eggs - no artificial colors or dyes needed.

Put any leaves you like on the surface of the egg and carefully place them in a stocking. Boil these eggs in water full of onion skins. The result are beautiful, earthly colors and interesting patterns.
