Some of you are reblogging because you think its funny that programmers would talk to ducks. I’m reblogging because I think its funny picturing a programmer explaining their code, realizing what they did when they explain the bad code, then grabbing the strangling the duck while yelling “WHY WAS THE FIX THAT SIMPLE!? AM I GOING BLIND!”
AS A PROGRAMMER I CAN TELL YOU THAT THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU FUCKING DO WE HAD TO BAN THE DUCKS FROM MY CLASSES BECAUSE EVERYONE WOULD FLIP THE DUCK OR THROW IT AT A WALL OR SOMETHING WHEN THEY FIGURED OUT THE PROBLEM IN THEIR CODE
so that’s the function of a rubber duck
Everyone thinks programmers are so smart but really we’re all just a bunch of crazy duck worshipers.
"A Sticky Situation" (1960) by Carl Barks
I like how advertising is literally still exactly as sexist as they’re joking about in this comic from 54 years ago.
This is disgusting.
I heard about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge thing today it’s fucking sick and there is a petition to get those sick bastards in prison for what they did. Please sign it.
As someone pointed out yesterday, it’s really telling that the word “abuse” and “abuser” isn’t mentioned here at all. Instead, it’s “bullies” and “bullied”. Fucking hell no.
have you ever just looked at someone and thought, my fucking god i love you. i love every goddamn ounce. i love your bones and your soul. but I’m a loser, who just doesn’t wanna lose you. i can lose fucking everything, but not you. oh god. not you.
I know I’m kinda punchy from being tired, but I keep reading that “Mary Shelley and the Romantics!” pop-punk post, and I start having incoherent thoughts about what the fandom wank would be. There would absolutely be a mad-bad-dangerous2know-secrets.tumblr, Claire Clairmont would be a BNF who drives half the fandom into a rage because she TOTALLY STALKED BYRON, HOW COULD HE HAVE DATED HER?.
The behind the scenes bickering about photo shoots! "George, do we HAVE to have skulls in these ones? Really?”
I think I should walk away from the computer and make some coffee.
Someone design me a t-shirt for this fictional band. I need one.
The paparazzi mobbing Fanny Brawne , taking pictures of all her dresses, as soon as its rumored she’s with Keats (ohdearlord a modern AU means MODERN MEDICINE AND KEATS LIVES).
Mary branching out to make her own indie horror films that get more attention than her actual artistic work does.
Byron being the one that’s in and out of courtroom hearings for a myriad of ridiculous things, and being the one with the marriage that lasts a week.
Polidori writing some of their songs when Shelley and Byron can’t finish a project; and his long classic-rock ballad Lord Ruthven is mistaken for Byron’s great song writing comeback; sparking tons of shock-rock vampire songs on the radio.
Keats moving permanently to Italy, and Percy and Mary wed and Byron’s still stuck in his bachelor ways, and its seems like the end of the band.
Polidori convinces them for one last tour starting in Keat’s new home country, when Byron and Shelley get an idea during a post-concert party to go night boating and their yachting accident makes head line news
Someone broke into the morgue in Italy, and disfigured one of the corpses, but no one there wants to let the public know exactly what happened, but people get curious when Mary’s next film features a young woman who literally steals her husband’s heart in the end.
No one ever compares to the band of course….but down the road….
but there’s some American kid that’s writing weird shit about talking ravens and being buried alive and beating hearts, always appearing in all black on the little stages in the music taverns down in Richmond.
And there’s this older Irish man, writing songs in England about Romanian history, all focused around this fictionalized historical figure.
A Londoner singing about the working class problems, orphans, and spooky Victorian mansions who gets his big hit with a Christmas album about ghosts.
They may be gone but no one would ever argue about the impact the group had on popular music.
Yessssss. annabellioncourt GETS IT.
THE RAVEN. EDGAR ALLAN POE.

here comes halloweeeeeeeeeen :D :D xxxx
OKAY. OKAY. WHAT THE UNHOLY HELL. OH GOD I’M SO MAD. HANG ON LOOK, KEEP READING THIS AND I PROMISE I’LL BE MORE CALM.
In 2012, a 17-year-old boy named T.J. Lane killed three fellow classmates in a school shooting, and was sentenced to life in jail. But wait, that’s not the worst part. This kid pulled a few nasty stunts to really show how much of a pathetic monstrosity he is. In the courtroom during his trial, he took off his more formal clothing to reveal a white undershirt with the word “KILLER” crudely written on it. He was smiling and laughing while the case progressed through the day. And to top it off, when he was finally sentenced [to life in prison], he turned to the families of the victims he killed, and said, “This hand that pulled the trigger that killed your sons now masturbates to the memory. F—- all of you,” before flicking them off. As if this sick waste of human life couldn’t get any more disgusting.
AND NOW, FOR THE DAMN KICKER: This vile animal has somehow managed to fucking escape prison with a fellow inmate, and is currently on the run. I urge any and all of you to spread this info around and be fully aware of the tragedy this vermin has caused. He must be found and apprehended as soon as possible, and if I’ve made anyone more aware, I’ve helped this cause.
I WANT HIM OFF THE STREETS AND AWAY FROM EVERY OTHER HUMAN BEING. YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW INFURIATED I AM. I APOLOGIZE FOR ANY OBSCENE LANGUAGE BUT I’M PISSED OFF AT THE AMERICAN JUSTICE SYSTEM AND THIS IS ONLY ANOTHER NAIL IN THE COFFIN.
he still breathing meanwhile Mike Brown is dead.
He is still breathing while thousands of innocent/unarmed/guiltless black people are deceased.
elementary school libraries have gotten wild
My aunt is battling cancer so if ya’ll can donate like 5 dollars that could go a long way.
and you don’t have the funds or the means to donate, can ya’ll just like or reblog this post to spread awareness? The more people see it the better. It can really go a long way.
