PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T SCROLL PAST THIS.
Scarleteen is a vital queer and trans positive sexual health resource. Their staff do an amazing job of creating really comprehensive and helpful articles on literally every sexual topic you can imagine. They also provide live chats, advice columns, moderated discussion forums, and SMS-based peer support. This site has helped me on countless occasions, and I refer at-risk queer and trans kids to this site every single day.
Scarleteen is invaluable.
And Scarleteen needs your help.
During their annual donation drive this year, the site was only able to raise $1,500. Only fifty people out of Scarleteen’s 350,000 unique monthly visitors contributed to the fundraising drive.
This means that unless Scarleteen sees a stable, sustained, 50% increase in donations, the site will essentially be forced to go dark on May 1. No more new content, no more advice columns, no more forums, no more live chat, no more SMS support. 
This is devastating.
If Scarleteen goes dark, millions of young people, vulnerable queer and trans teens among them, will lose access to essential, fundamental sexual health resources. We cannot let this happen.
Please, please, please donate to Scarleteen. Consider making a recurring monthly contribution if you feel that this is within your means. Even $5 or $10 a month will go a long way to helping this very, very deserving organization.
And whether or not you’re able to donate at this time, please signal boost this and spread the word. Scarleteen does incredible, very necessary work, and they need our help.

Thank you so much for this, lalondes!

im really pissed that palindrome isnt palindrome backwards

Ah, yes but emordnilap is a word!

An emornilap is any word that, when spelled backwards, produces another word. Examples of emordnilap pairs include:

  • desserts & stressed
  • drawer & reward
  • gateman & nametag
  • time & emit
  • laced & decal
  • regal & lager

And therefore “emordnilap palindrome” is an emordnilap palindrome.

Which I, for one, think is really frickin’ cool.

This right here is a fucking hundred twenty-eighth note or semihemidemisemiquaver or quasihemidemisemiquaver notes. Beethoven decided to just go ahead and invent these little shits which you play 1/128 the length of a whole note. In non music terms, hella fast. Like 10x the speed of fuck. Not even that, these fuckers were only used in one piece by Beethoven and rarely show up in any other music. So they’re the most useless fuckers ever also. NOT ONLY THAT but they do actually use 132 note rests(rarely), which shouldn’t even be counted. You can pretty much skip it. Its like playing a note super staccato. They are the most fucking useless rests ever. Wtfg Beethoven. You created the most useless fucking note on the planet. I hope your mother’s proud(not that you could hear her if she was).

omg “angel of the sass” thank you for the sass

And the Waltz Goes On - Anthony Hopkins 

Sir Anthony Hopkins Hears The Waltz He Wrote 50 Years Ago For The First Time

Academy Award-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins was a musician before he got into acting. 50 years ago he wrote a waltz but was too afraid to ever hear it play. Dutch violinist André Rieu performs it for the very first time. Watch Hopkins’ reaction.

That was beautiful

I cried a few tears and felt better about humanity’s endeavors.

This is so amazing. The waltz is awesome and Sir Anthony is humming along. He looks so damn pleased.

A) I realized that about 17 seconds into this, that I was just beaming.

B) Does this just sound like Anthony Hopkins? Complex, and joyful, with a darkness just below the surface?

C) André Rieu is everything I never knew I wanted when I heard the words “Dutch violinisit”

This is another info graphic I did advocating for snakes. When spring comes around snakes start to come out of hibernation and sometimes will end up in people’s backyards. Snakes around this time are killed left and right, whether it is completely harmless or venomous. I want to urge people to learn about snakes and also to leave snakes alone!
