So there’s this teacher in Tucsan who tells his class a story so scary that no one can stand it.

I just listened to it. It’s so not scary at all. :C

I’m really disappointed. I feel like I’m that guy from that fairytale who wasn’t scared of anything, so he went out to find something that would scare him.

Did he mention, agoutirex, that while it was happening, she got skinnier every day? Thinner and thinner, and less hungry with every passing MINUTE.

Wonder Woman is Worthy.

Fun Fact: In the Marvel vs DC crossover it was established that Wonder Woman is in fact Worthy of wielding the hammer of Thor.

And then she put it down, because she thought it would be unworthy of her to take advantage of its power.

Wonder Woman’s standards are higher than Mjolnir’s.

IF THE HAMMER THINKS SHES WORTHY WHY DONT THE MARKETING EXECS

marketing execs are dumber than hammers, apparently

you went to college to be a librarian? so, like, you're a technophobe?

darcsowers:

*looks around studio at all the tech surrounding her* You’re kidding, right?

No, being a librarian does not mean you’re a technophobe. It just means you enjoy information/literature and wish to ensure others have equal access to said info/lit. It doesn’t matter whether that info be in print, on microfiche, or completely digital. If it exists, a librarian will try to archive it. Even those of us no longer in the profession tend to hoard the bits we can get our grubby little hands on.

While I entered the SLIS program for Young Adult Services, I quickly found myself focusing on Tech Services as well. The end result - my time as a librarian was split between teen reader’s advisory, teaching folks how to interact with their computers, maintaining our OPACs, manning the circ desk, and calculating our payroll. By the time I left librarianship I was also serving as our temporary Cataloger.

While it’s true that some librarians are not fond of technology, the greater majority are plugged in and quite happy about it.

Reblogged because my mother is a librarian, with a Masters degree in Library Science.

People usually don’t remember that librarians are the original information technologists, and are continually on the cutting edge of what’s happening with infomation storage, manipulation and law, as they have always been and must always be. It’s their whole job.

My mom took great delight in overseeing her college’s research library’s piles of expensive, space-hogging musty magazine subscriptions to massive searchable full-text databases. It was part of her job to review and approve the contracts regarding public access and usage of those privately run corporate information banks, making sure the terms lined up with student usage data for the 20,000+ student body.

When you hear a search engine company has refined the logarithms that sift through terms and pages to give you better results: people who worked on that had advanced degrees in Library Science. Sifting through millions of letters, words, pages, or posts to extract meaningful, useful information and references has always been the job of a librarian. Technology only makes them more powerful and necessary.

Judgmental cosplay from the Saturday, June 7th 2014 A-Kon cosplay: it’s doronjosama in her judging outfit, after the contest! Kyle B. and she cosplayed as Cyrus and Reese, the blue and pink alpacas (respectively) from Animal Crossing, while they ran the Saturday night Cosplay Contest. See, she’s even got a bag of bells! Cyrus kept yelling that she was blowing them all on sharks.
This is something I’ve always thought was super pro: the A-Kon Cosplay judges are all cosplayers, and many of them are contest winners who have been retired out of contests — like doronjosama, who racked up back-to-back A-Kon wins until they made her a judge and then Cosplay Staff Head. As a result, when you go in for judging or the contest, all of the judges (and most of the staff!) are also in costume… and usually for the judges, a coordinated group cosplay. It’s your first, personal judgement: is your cosplay as good as the guy lining up the contestants? Did you put in as much work as the person stocking the snack table? This before you even get to the costumed judges. You keep your game up.
A-Kon has always had great cosplay, and the folks who run it now are COSPLAY 4 LYF, YO.

Even more A-Kon 25 hall cosplay photos! These were taken Saturday, June 7, 2014, and they are SUPERB.
Katnappe and Jack Spicer are obviously up to no good at the con! If I had to pick a favorite from all this great cosplay this year, it would be these two because HOLY COW they were PERFECT. Xiaolin Showdown had a very flat graphic look, and they nailed it. Jack&#8217;s paint was so white and perfectly sealed it looked unreal, and their details were flawless &#8212; including Jack&#8217;s custom hardshell backpack, which you can&#8217;t even see in this picture. I hardly watched the show and this was impressive as hell. GOOD JOB YOU TWO!
It&#8217;s Gamora and Star Lord!&#8230; Star Lord. Star Lord. Oh come on, he&#8217;s got a movie coming out in&#8230; you know what? Just forget it.
A good Groot, with his little heavily armed buddy Rocket Raccoon. I don&#8217;t think these two had anything to do with Gamora and Star Lord, though. STAR LORoh never mind.
Khal Drogo was more than ready to cut his way through the queue for the cosplay contest audience! For those keeping track (like I know usagivindaloo does!), you should know that guys are doing their best at this con to achieve parity with women, and every year there are more hot young half-naked man candy cosplayers.
A really great Artemis and Miss Martian. I don&#8217;t want to rant on Tumblr (HA HA I&#8217;m the only one!), but DC&#8230; man, you guys are missing out. Look at these two! Are you telling me you don&#8217;t want them buying your comics and watching your TV shows? They&#8217;re showing the love!
Some League of Legends to finish up! Justicar Syndra knows that with great power can come an even greater hat. Really, it&#8217;s quite big and shiny.
But not as big as Caitlin&#8217;s! She&#8217;s used up her team&#8217;s entire headware allotment, so Vi has to make do with gloves and a jacket. That&#8217;s the way it is on the mean streets.
