    im not joking when i say that this meme single handedly got me invested in learning how the fuck electrical production works small scale so that i could explain it to somebody from a millennium ago

    caspercryptid

    If that's a thing that bothers you for more subjects then just electricity there's actually a book for this! That I own! That is both very stupid and fairly useful! And entertaining!

    How to invent everything: a survival guide for the stranded time traveler is the book for you, complete with flowchart about how to identify what time you've landed yourself in! It's very funny and very fun and informative and starts with the production of written language and works it's way forward through inventions of varying complexity, all framed in the way of "so you got into this time machine from our company and it's broken, huh? Well tough fucking shit! Welcome to your new home!"

    Heyo it’s back to school time and here’s a research tip from your friendly neighborhood academic librarian.When searching for any topic on the internet just type in the word ‘libguide’ after your topic and tada like magic there will be several  beautifully curated lists of books, journals, articles, or other resources dealing with your subject. Librarians create these guides to help with folks’ informational needs, so please go find one and make a librarian happy today!!

    okayto

    this is the BEST advice, and there are so many options, both if you’re doing academic research, or just curious and looking for information!

    It’s so interesting what you can find!

    Dime novels, mystery & detective fiction, adulting (not academic, but still),D&D guide, citation libguides, comics, graphic novels, and manga, German language & literature, differentiating fake news, firefighting, body autonomy for kids and young adults, interfaith women advocates for social justice, cooking (nonacademic)/food culture and cuisine/food & cooking.

    thebraveandthebroiled

    Thank you for excellent additions and very much agre ewith you that cooking libguides are the best!! Have you seen all the ones from the Culinary Institute of America??

    Oh! Building on your notes I figured I should mention to everyone that most academic institutions with a library are going to have a page with the research guides the librarians have made for their patrons. This will include basic topic guides on things like how to use the library or how to create citations. There will also be subject guides for areas of study like philosophy or biology. As well as specific course guides to assist classes that are being taught like FM 114: Introduction to the Fashion Industry or BME6938: Nanoparticle Nanomedicines.

    If any of y’all have started university totally check out the ones your librarians have put up! There’s a ton up to help you along your research journey. And if you aren’t at university check them out too!! Some of the resources won’t be accessible but there’s loads of information you’ll still be able to use and get to.

    Hello, fellow academic librarian specializing in instruction! Many libraries also include guides orientations on how to properly utilize non-subject specific databases. Watch those before diving into your first research project so you understand the tools and features available to you to make your life easier. Many universities subscribe to ProQuest or EBSCO and there are MANY tutorials that will teach you how to use them in less than 5 mins.

    Believe me, you will save yourself A LOT of headache with both LibGuides and orientations. Good luck and happy hunting!

    People who reblog art posts: I love you.

    People who reblog art posts with detailed commentary in the tags, speculating or highlighting what they liked: I hope you find random $20 bills in your laundry pockets for the rest of your lives, and that they always have your favorite ice cream flavor in stock, and that strangers are always kind. I hope babies smile at you in checkout lines and fluffy animals befriend you for pats. I hope it always stops pouring right as you need to run outside, and your bank account never overdraws. I hope you die smiling in your sleep at a ripe old age with a hundred people at your funeral singing your praises of a life well lived.

    I’ve seen a lot of posts on my dash tonight about users who are threatening suicide, with other Tumblr members posting in effort to try to get ahold of them. I think you all should see this:

    IF THERE IS EVER A TUMBLR USER WHO HAS POSTED A GOOD-BYE MESSAGE, SUICIDE NOTE, VIDEO, OR ANYTHING OF THE SORT, PLEASE FOLLOW THIS POST.

    1. Scroll to the top of your dashboard.

    2. See the circular question mark icon at the top? It’s the third one over from your home symbol. Click on that, and a screen similar to the one in the picture will come up.

    3. Where you can type in questions, the box with the magnifying glass at the top, type in the word “suicide.”

    4. Click on the first link that shows up. It should say, “Pass the URL of the blog on to us.”

    5. Type in the user’s URL and tell Tumblr admin that the user is contemplating suicide and has posted a message indicating that they are going through with it or will be attempting. Hit send! Tumblr administration will perform a number of actions to contact the user and take the necessary steps to prevent the suicide.

    TUMBLR: THIS COULD SAVE A USER’S LIFE. PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE SUICIDE THREATS.

    Reblog this to keep other users aware. Suicide isn’t a joke, and neither is someone’s life. If you didn’t know this, someone else may not, either. Pass it on.

    With those “when you want to design a character but you don’t know color theory” posts flying around I thought this would be relevant again.

    there’s also Coolors website that gives you randomized palettes!

    tf2humbug

    Don’t forget ColourLovers, either! It’s a social media-esque site where you can browse tons of palettes and share your own.

    You can browse the most popular ones or search for certain colors, themes, and even specific hex codes!

    When you find one you like, you can download a wallpaper swatch of it and also select the specific colors it uses to look at more palettes that use those same ones.

    ColourLovers is my go-to for when I’m having trouble coming up with a color scheme! It’s also been around for over a decade, so there’s plenty to browse through.

    I do love me a good color palet.

    Aaa yes these websites are gr8 💛💛💛

    In today’s modern society, Riddler would be the EASIEST of Batman’s villains to rehabilitate 

    All you have to do? Give him a job designing/running an Escape Room facility

    It’s perfect for him. A non-violent outlet for feeding his need to flex how intelligent he is, he still gets to create his elaborate puzzles and riddles, and people will willingly PAY HIM to lock them up in a room where he can mess with them for an hour or so

    Someone get Bruce Wayne on the phone I have an idea for a thing he should invest in

    thenarator

    if you win, and successfully escape the room, you get a sticker that says “i’m as smart as batman”

    nyxthechaosdragon

    Some of his escape room reviews

    Poison Ivy: Wonderful escape room. Made out with Harley in all the closets.

    Tim: I currently hold the record. If anyone beats it, call me. We’re fighting to the death.

    Penguin: I broke out of jail for this and it was SO worth it

    thisiswhereikeepdcthings

    Jason Todd: I’ve gone at least a dozen times. I’m making a collection of the stickers.

    Red Hood: Of course I went. Nothing is going to stop me from getting a sticker that says I’m better than Batman. I said what I said.

    Clark Kent: It was a fun way to spend an afternoon and my sticker is now on my desk as a motivational reminder.

    Batman could not be reached for comment

    lmfao turns out you can just get an extension to show youtube dislikes again

    chrome firefox

    inked-shadows

    Why are so many people against the dislike button disappering, it’s just a button.

    anioryans

    A tutorial with a lot of dislikes is probably outdated, fake, or even a scam. Dislikes can’t be deleted or disabled by the video uploader like comments can. When a corporation (like for example, Nintendo) releases a video announcing a new product, no one bats an eye. But if that video has a 1 to 10 like to dislike ratio (like Nintendo’s announcement video for a $49.99 subscription that offers nothing you can’t get on the internet, at a higher quality, for free), that makes them look really bad. And those dislikes being public let viewers know audience opinion at a glance, without having to dig through Reddit or Twitter or whatever (Comments aren’t good for that bc they can be deleted/disabled, and the ones that the uploader likes tend to go to the top.) This change isn’t being made to help Youtubers or viewers. They are doing this to keep corporations happy.

    Free Audiobooks and Ebooks on OVERDRIVE.

    Free Graphic Novels (DC, Marvel, Image, etc), Music, TV shows, and music on HOOPLA.

    Free music that you can KEEP on FREEGAL

    You are PAYING for all this with your tax money - USE THEM. Most likely systems will have all 3 or 2 out of 3, so if you aren’t sure call your local library’s reference/information desk and how you can get set-up or started.

    horrorinthegraveyard

    Hey, highkey from a library worker: 

    Overdrive has a new mobile app called LIBBY I find it easier to use.  It’s the same content as Overdrive just better for mobile.  Overdrive and Libby both let you send items to your kindle as well.  

    tusks-and-tonics

    Can confirm Overdrive is amazing. 

    I work in the largest library system in my state (17 branches in total).

    I use it not only for ebooks, but movies as well.

    Other FREE resources to check with your library for are:

  • Freegal Music (download and keep music, including current music)
  • Hoopla Digital (borrow ebooks, e-audiobooks, e-graphic novels, stream movies)
  • Kanopy (stream movies; also available on Roku!)
  • Axis360 (usually hot or just released ebooks)
  • If you don’t have a library card…

    GET ONE!

    If someone says libraries are a thing of the past…

    BOOP THEM IN THE NOSE WITH YOUR KINDLE!

    Don’t discount libraries as “quiet” places. 

    THEY ARE ALIVE!!!

    THEY ARE LOUD!!!

    THEY ARE YOUR DOORWAYS TO KNOWLEDGE!!
