nerdismqueen asked: What did FDR do about Pearl Harbor?

ladyhistory:

Unbeknownst by most of history, FDR was actually the first president to be involved with an atomic bombing. After hearing the news of Pearl Harbor, FDR immediately attached a jetpack to the back of his wheelchair before tying a tiny nuclear warhead to the bottom of it. Under the cover of night, FDR launched from the White House and puttered off to Japan where he bombed a pet store, mistaking it for a miniature military base. There were mass hamster casualties, which proved the deadliness of the weapon’s power and potential for destruction in the future.

A quick PSA, because working in a New Age store I realize a lot of people don’t know this.  Keep in mind this is the simple version.

The fella on the left-hand side, that’s Gautama Buddha, the Buddha, the central figure in Buddhism.  Note that he is not considered a god, but a teacher and spiritual leader, the first to attain Enlightenment in his era.  Note also how thin he is.  This is because the Buddha fasted a lot.  He was born Siddhartha Gautama.  Buddha is a title, and not actually his name.

The fella on the right-hand side is not Buddha.  This is a common misconception in the West.  That is Hotai (or Budai or Hotei depending on the language), a Buddhist monk from China and folkloric hero.  Hotai is thought by many to be a Buddha, but he is not the Buddha.  Unlike Buddha, Hotai actually is revered as a god in Chinese folklore, although not in Buddhist practice.

This post is based on things I’ve been taught by my Buddhist coworker but if I forgot or mixed up something important and you are Buddhist and you notice, please let me know.

This has been an informational post.  Have a nice day.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD EVERYONE READ THIS. READ IT. LEARN IT. PREACH IT.

I AM SO TIRED OF EVERYONE BELIEVING THIS MISCONCEPTION.

Open Source Clothing.

Now I feel it imperative to reblog this, because the project seems to have hit a snag: The video they put up has been taken down because of claims of 3rd-party content, whatever whatever corporate lawyer stuff internet throttling stuff. That makes me think that Bennetton or one of the others whose stores were glimpsed in the background got their hooks in Vimeo.So I thought I’d tell you a yarn about how this thing works: You download the open-source plans for the machine. You build it. You download their open-souce clothing-maker program.You enter the desired measurements into the fields (the ones I remember from the video were arm and neck and chest measurements, so I’m sure they have waist and/or hips too)You print out your sweater, or hat, or scarf, or cardigan, or whatever it was that you selected. It takes an hour to print out the sweater, working off of the two yarn spools that you can see in the bottom right corner of this .gifThat’s it. Custom-fit, custom-color clothing in an hour, for the price of yarn. Can you see why one of the clothing companies targetted in the video might have felt threatened enough to force the video to come down?

I know if I sold overpriced manufactured clothes, I’d see this as a looming menace.

I WILL HAVE HAUTE COUTURE

tmdobsessed asked: But can we talk about Dean Thomas bc I love him so much he is so important

excepttheeyes:

YES. LET’S. DEAN THOMAS. WHAT A GUY. Muggle-born. Drew the “Potter for President” banner they made for Harry’s first Quidditch match. Hung up soccer football posters that bothered Ron so much in the dorm and shouted football calls at Quidditch matches. Still supported Harry when his name came out of the Goblet of Fire. Sticks up for Lupin when Umbridge was insulting him and says he was the best teacher they ever had and sided with Harry in his fights against her. Didn’t jump to take sides when Harry claimed Voldemort was back and acted neutral in the fights between Seamus and Harry even though Seamus is his best friend.  Didn’t freak out and avoid Harry like the plague when he was having nightmares in fifth year and creepily laughing and flailing in his sleep. Joined Dumbledore’s Army. Wasn’t hostile to Harry or Ginny when they started going out. Fiercely supportive of Harry when he’s on the run in the 7th book, so supportive the Goblins were tired of hearing it. Captured and locked and who knows what else in the Malfoy’s cellar. Made friends with Luna. Helped dig Dobby’s grave and put his hat on him before they buried him. Fought in the battle of Hogwarts…and just….Dean Thomas, man.
