Meh.

26, British. Kentish born, but living in London. Child of the Chalk is what you'd say if you'd read too much Pratchett.

Supposedly studying PPE, but mostly I'm not.

I spend most of my time reading, smoking, and fucking around on my computer.

The are also Videogames, but shhhhhh.

Stoned out of my gourd most of the time, but not completely averse to the notion of talking to people.

This is my personal (and only) blog, full of stuff I thought was interesting and worthy at the time.
Enjoy

But then science is nothing but a series of questions that lead to more questions, which is just as well, or it wouldn’t be much of a career path, would it?

Magical Blue Crystals Cover an Entire Room by  Roger Hiorns

Seizure is a large-scale installation by British artist Roger Hiorns in which he used unexpected materials to transform an everyday room into a giant piece of art. To create the site-specific installation, Hiorns covered the surface of the interior with plastic sheeting. He then poured more than 20,000 gallons of boiling copper sulphate solution into the abandoned space and let the liquid cool for three weeks. As the liquid cooled, these strange blue crystalline growths began to form, covering the walls, the floors, and the ceiling. The remaining liquid was drained and sent out for special chemical recycling.             

So fucking crazy.

Went there, saw this. Have some in a box somewhere.

Mind you, the Elizabethans had so many words for the female genitals that it is quite hard to speak a sentence of modern English without inadvertently mentioning at least three of them.

5 Things Nobody Tells You About Breeding Endangered Animals

#5. We Are Constantly Masturbating Animals
I’ve sat through entire lectures discussing the proper way to give a crocodile a hand job (answer: very carefully), and I was once assigned to a team responsible for jerking off cranes. It’s not that we’re just really enthusiastic about animal wangs; for rarer crocs, artificial insemination makes more sense than traditional breeding, because there’s less chance of them murdering each other. Zoo animals kill intended mates all the time.

Dear Scotland,

iandsharman:

Personally, I completely sympathise with you not wanting to be ruled by a bunch of Eton educated Tory millionaires in London…I don’t want to be ruled by a bunch of Eton educated Tory millionaires in London either. However, I live in Kent, and as much as I’d be eligible for Scottish citizenship…

I don’t see what’s so t’riffic about creating people as people and then gettin’ upset ‘cos they act like people," said Adam severely. "Anyway, if you stopped tellin’ people it’s all sorted out after they’re dead, they might try sorting it all out while they’re alive.
