I second this motion

so my roommate and I hear loud moaning outside from the room across the hall. probably people outside just being awkward like people do in dorms.
twenty minutes later we hear a commotion. something about “man wielding fire” so I go to see what’s going on because WE HAVE HAD TOO MANY FIRE DRILLS THIS SEMESTER. I look out, and my friend is holding a lighter (unlit, happily) and a clothes hanger (???) and standing outside the room across the hall. he opens the door, makes a startled face, shuts the door, and starts giggling. I hear a loud smack. followed by giggles. it’s pretty obvious something kinky is happening in that room.
my friend opens the door again. and throws in a grape. (???)
I hear another smack and more giggling. at this point I’ve seen enough so I go back to my desk. but then I hear, in a loud whisper from outside our door “go African American. go black” (???)
so I go to investigate again. nobody in the hall.
as I’m standing there, I hear someone in the other room say “come on get the other kimono”
I am profoundly confused.
aw shucks. I like this term. gender bravery.
I kinda want to go through the concept art for HTTYD and design riders based off of dragons…
so in LOTR’s appendices it says that legolas eventually builds a boat and takes gimli across the seas and into the west, the gray havens. you know, the place arwen isn’t allowed to go because she’s in love with a human dude bUT LEGOLAS (AKA ‘YOU LITTLE SHIT’) JUST SAYS “FUCK IT” AND SNEAKS GIMLI INTO THE GODDAMN UNDYING LANDS LIKE CONTRABAND TWIZZLERS INTO A MOVIE THEATER
best literary analysis ever
Seriously, though this is kind of a big deal. Know that big problem we have? You know, the one involving a crapload of used plastic hanging around in landfills with nowhere to biodegrade for a couple million years? Well, Jonathan Russell might’ve solved that problem. See, Russell and his fellow Yale students went to Ecuador, where they found a new kind of fungus they’re calling Pestalotiopsis microspora. Big deal, you’re thinking. Anyone can find fungus anywhere! Well, something his fellow students found out after the fact is that this fungus can live on a diet of polyurethane alone — and even crazier, it doesn’t even need air to do so! In other words, we could potentially put it at the bottom of a landfill and cover it with plastic, and it would do the rest of the work. This might be game-changing if it works as advertised.
