Sokath, his eyes opened!

Sometimes when I’m out and about I like to pretend that Steve Rogers is there and I think about how he would react.

I was at a hockey game the other day and during the break the Zamboni machine came out and I love Zamboni machines. And then I thought about Steve.

"The Zamboni machine’s been around for decades," I told myself. "Surely Steve would have seen a Zamboni machine before he was frozen, right?"

OMG

STEVE ROGERS HAS NO IDEA WHAT A ZAMBONI MACHINE IS

Last weekend, we were at new York Comic Con! And it was AWESOME! We’ll be posting stuff from there all week–including episode 27, some photos of very cool X-cosplay, and a special bonus mini-episode–but while we’re recombobulating post-travel, here’s the full NYCC round-up from Rachel’s Cyclops Has a Good Day sketchbook!

Dudebros using geek chicks for proximity and professional advantage

colleendoran:

I have had about enough of people claiming women sleep their way to the top in this business, especially since I’ve never seen that happen, and in my experience, men are very quick to try to cozy up to geek chicks for proximity and professional advantage.

Twenty years ago, I briefly dated a guy…

NO BUT REAL TALK OK I WENT TO SCHOOL IN GEORGIA AND I EVEN HAD TEACHERS TELLING ME THAT I SHOULDN’T CELEBRATE HALLOWEEN BECAUSE IT WAS THE DEVIL’S BIRTHDAY AND I GOT SUSPENDED FOR 4 DAYS BECAUSE I WROTE AN ESSAY ENTITLED “You’re All Dumb, The Devil Wasn’t Even Born: The Story of All Hallow’s Eve” AND I TALKED ABOUT THE HISTORY OF HALLOWEEN, HOW IT WAS A PAGAN CELEBRATION TO VENERATE AND APPEASE THE DEAD AND HOW THE DEVIL WAS TECHNICALLY AN ANGEL THAT WAS CAST FROM HEAVEN AND BECAUSE ANGELS WERE CREATED BY GOD THEY WEREN’T BORN THEREFORE THE DEVIL COULDN’T HAVE A BIRTHDAY. MY PRINCIPAL WAS SO CONCERNED FOR ME BECAUSE I WAS IN 3RD GRADE AND HE GOT MAD AT MY MOM FOR RAISING SUCH A “DISRESECTFUL, HEDOONISTIC CHILD”. SHE BOUGHT ME ICECREAM AND LET ME WATCH CARTOONS WHILE I WAS OUT OF SCHOOL.

In the early years of space flight, both Russians and Americans used pencils in space. Unfortunately, pencil lead is made of graphite, a highly conductive material. Snapped graphite leads and particles in zero gravity are hugely problematic, as they will get sucked into the air ventilation or electronic equipment, easily causing shorts or fires in the pure oxygen environment of a capsule.

After the fire in Apollo 1 which killed all the astronauts on board, NASA required a writing instrument that wasn’t a fire hazard. Fisher spent over a million dollars (of his own money) creating a pressurized ball point pen, which NASA bought at $2.95 each. The Russian space program also switched over from pencils shortly after.

40 years later snide morons on the internet still snigger about it, because snide morons on the internet never know what they are talking about.

Play is important. It’s the vehicle of creativity. The foundation of invention. The baseline of human civility. The fuel of love. It can be something you share with everyone. Maybe it’s something that you reserve for the most important people in your life. Or, you can revel in it within the bubble of your own mind. Its context makes play no less crucial, whatever form it takes, however real or imagined.

I’ll have “Gleaming the Bubble” and lots of other fresh prints available at New York Comic Con next week!! Please come say hi!

One of the most well-known and mysterious cemetery markers in the Chicagoland area, as well as a personal favourite of mine, is the grave of six-year-old Inez Clarke (1873-1880).
Located in Chicago’s historic Graceland Cemetery, her parents commissioned a life-sized statue, which was completed a year later by a Sicilian sculptor, and placed over the headstone. Later, a transparent plexiglass box was added to protect her likeness from the elements.
According to local legend, a night watchman, making his rounds during a storm, came across Inez’s grave and saw that the box was empty. He fled, never to return. The next morning, the statue of the little girl was back in its usual place. Others have claimed to have briefly glimpsed a small child in 19th-century dress wandering through the cemetery.
Inez’s grave remains popular today, perhaps due to the high quality of the likeness, and one cannot visit the cemetery without making a stop to see it. The nearly 135-year-old image remains in perfect condition thanks to its protection from the elements. Gifts of flowers and toys can often be found at the base of the glass box. But that’s not the end of the story.
For decades the true identity of the girl and of the actual person buried here have been in question. Based on extensive research it is now all but certain that the girl is actually Inez Briggs, the daughter of Mary C. Clarke from a previous marriage. But according to records there is no one by the name of Inez Clarke or Inez Briggs buried in the cemetery. An Amos Briggs is listed as being buried under the statue. Amos sounds like Inez, and Amos may have been accidentally written on the cemetery record. According to an 1880 census, no one living in Chicago at that time was even named Inez Clarke. Some have theorized that the statue was carved by the sculptor, Andrew Gagel, as a sample of his work in order to elicit business. No one will ever know for sure where Inez is actually buried or if the little girl ever existed in the first place. The mystery will probably continue to haunt visitors for years to come.

WHY ARE NONE OF YOU FUCKERS FLIPPING SHIT?!?

NASA HAS DECLARED PLUTO A PLANET AGAIN

IT HAS MOONS!!!!! IT HAS MOONS!!!!!!!

WHAT. WHAT! PLUTO YOU FUCKING DID IT!

VIVA LA PLUTO, YOU DID IT!!!

THE UNDERDOG

I can’t find a source. Does anyone have any? I won’t believe it until I get a source.

Ugh this is so incredibly misleading. NASA didn’t declare shit. It was a public debate and they let an audience vote on it. An audience that was not comprised of scientists, but ordinary citizens with an emotional attachment to the idea of Pluto as a planet.

Even though this debate itself was comprised of scientists and some of them argued for Pluto being a planet, I don’t think we should be reversing the ruling at all. All that’s going to accomplish is that it will teach a group of people with a weak understanding of scientific concepts that if you yell hard enough, eventually you’ll get your way. And while that has happened at times in the scientific community, we need to be better than that.
