Stuart Firestein, from Ignorance: How It Drives Science
I was reminded of this quote, which sums up the driving force of the scientific process better than just about anything I’ve ever read, today after watching the latest Vlogbrothers video, in which Hank Green channels his inner Socrates:
"I know one thing, that I know nothing."
Watch Hank admit to being a towering mountain of ignorance (something we should all admit) below…
Anonymous said: u take a lot of selfies. do u think ur pretty or smoething? ur not
hi there, anon. i didn’t realize i took a lot of selfies. thanks for the info. so, your question was whether i think i’m pretty. you already answered that no, i am not.
and i have to agree, anon. i don’t think i’m pretty bc i’m not.
i always have a double chin.
i constantly look like i haven’t slept in a week bc of my dark circles
and, i always look sunburnt. idfk why
i have this white line across my nose that makeup can’t cover up
i have tons of wrinkles on my forehead. like what the hell? i’m 25
also, it’s the size of fucking texas
i still don’t know how to smile in pictures bc i hate my fucking teeth
my feet are flat. my hips are huge. my boobs are weird. i am covered in stretch marks. my voice is grating. my ears stick out two miles from my head. i am always fucking sweating and i’ve been asked if i was pregnant more times than i can count.
so, you’re right. i’m not pretty. i can’t stand the way i look.
which is why it’s so fucking important that i post “a lot” of selfies. bc, anon, you’d better fucking believe that if i look in the mirror that day and don’t cringe, i’m gonna take a fucking picture to save that tiny little second. and GOD FORBID i show the world that i posses a little self love every once in a fucking while.
TO ANYONE READING THIS: DON’T EVER LET SOMEONE MAKE YOU FEEL ASHAMED FOR LIKING THE WAY YOU LOOK—EVEN IF IT’S JUST FOR A SECOND. IF YOU LOOK NICE, YOU TAKE THAT FUCKING SELFIE AND YOU SHOW IT TO THE GOD DAMN WORLD BC THEY DESERVE TO SEE THE GOD/GODDESS YOU ARE!
that beard finally coming in? go ahead, bro. take a selfie.
you finally got that piercing you’ve been wanting? not really my style, but you’re fucking rocking it. take a selfie.
your boobs look awesome in that shirt? take a selfie.
you finally lose or gain that weight you’ve been working on? take a selfie.
your eyeliner look awesome? your new sunglasses make you look like a celebrity avoiding the paparazzi? you killing that tux? you feel a tiny, rare level of self love? you always on a high level of self love? you just like your face?
TAKE A MOTHAFUCKING SELFIE!
thanks for the question, anon. this one’s for you.
Post your selfies! Feel positive about who you are what you are in that moment. Our lives are made of moment after moment. And the good can be outvoiced by the bad.
Sure we can get bored or annoyed with what other people post, that’s normal, I may not rave about every selfie that comes across my dash either, but ***** on a cracker, just let people be!
I remembered I have a lovely crepey fabric in stash :) It’s what I used for my Rachi so I can hopefully make the moors robe and a circle skirt to go with my Rachi robes to make a custom jedi :)
Leather for the boots! This brown pvc coting does come off (with a solvent)
Perfect finish and weight for functional boot covers. Who am I kidding. I’ll make a full boot…
Facebook folder, now public!
Not a huge amount but I have a few more projects to get ready for the stand (Cersei for one, a few Star Wars costumes for another.)
I still can’t bring myself to part with Liara or Shae but I may, a reasonable offer and I’ll consider it as I have both patterns and molds for each.
PM and I can update photos with “claimed” and remove them once the costume is posted.
Please note these costs are material costs only. These are not commissions they are either unfinished projects or finished projects I learned from and have no room for. The costumes were made to fit me. I am 5’6” and have a long waist to floor height so they can work for people shorter or taller than me. Also my upper hip is about the same as my lower so very easily adjusted to fit someone slightly bigger or smaller than me.
Bust 34-36, waist 26-30” (for all the current photos this can be increased to about 32-34 possibly), hips 36-40” (again for all current this can be up or down slightly too.)
