Tiny robot cheerleaders!

They aren’t unnerving or surreal in the slightest!

ETA the making-of video is brilliant and even more horrifying.

I admit, I never thought the government of the future would be a cheerocracy.  Jury’s still out if it’s a utopia or dystopia.

Three OUP Employees Pay Homage to International Coffee Day (Everyday)

The Fresh Pots Society (FPS) was born when three OUP publicists—Jonathan Kroberger, Owen Keiter, and Sam Blum—realized they had a shared fascination with coffee, caffeine intake, and general snobbery. Each afternoon, Jonathan, Owen, and Sam convene over a delicious French-pressed pot of their finest grounds and catch an afternoon jolt of much needed caffeine and conversation. The process of preparing such coffee can be quite laborious, however. To get a better idea of how we make our brew, see the series of gifs above.

Adieu,

The Fresh Pots Society

The actual best part is the owl mug, which needs to have a twin on my shelf asap.

Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart are so drift compatible that they’ve probably been piloting a jaeger for years and we just don’t know about it.

The kaiju gave up trying to invade because every time they’d start, Mithrandir Frontier would kick the shit out of them before they were done emerging from the rift.

The image above is an illustration about implications of Net Neutrality. Here’s what is going on today: 
There’s a protest organized by a number of large websites, including etsy, Netflix, dailydot and Twitter; organizations like the thehpalliance (alongside a lot of youtube filmmakers/vidders) are supporting it as well. 
Over the last few months, the FCC has been taking comments on a proposal that would require telecom providers to ensure that “all users have access to an internet experience that is sufficiently robust, fast and effectively usable”. 
Tech and content companies including Microsoft, Google, Facebook and Twitter, wrote to the FCC claiming the rules “would enable phone and cable internet service providers to discriminate both technically and financially against internet companies and to impose new tolls on them”.
[X]
In other words, what you’re seeing today is important, and changes to the nine-months-ago status of Net Neutrality could be problematic (I’m not saying “would be” because codification of Net Neutrality in the FCC’s rules would actually be a change, and awesome) but it doesn’t mean that there’s something newly threatening that’s happened in the last few days. 
Sign the petitions if you want - although the FCC comment period is closed - and make your voice heard, but don’t panic that there’s something new that you may’ve missed in the last week.

Porcelain-berry is a deciduous, climbing vine of the grape family which can grow, with support, to a height of 16 feet. The unusual fruits of porcelain-berry, however, distinguish it from similar species. The fruit is hard, with the appearance of porcelain, and changes in color from white to a series of pastel shades of yellow; lilac, and green before finally turning a sky blue. All the colors can often be found on a single fruit cluster.
