peculible preamblings and fruitless phobiae

I ran away here to hide from someone else. And then you show up. 

I don’t want to see you anymore. I don’t want to hear you, smell you, touch you, or taste you. Just stay away from me. I’d rather be alone than get to know you— because that means going back to that dark place. 

And if getting away from you means dropping dead, then I will. I’ll put a bullet in my skull. I’ll dig a knife into my chest. I’ll tie a noose around my neck. I’ll anchor myself to the bottom of the ocean, where I belong. 

You will watch me do it. And I will watch you suffer for it.

That’s not cool Tumblr.

no

Reblogging just in case this is true. I’ll get it off my blog here later, but for now….

Yeah if this is true… I’m just leaving this here and may or not remove all art.

TIME TO READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CHANGES.

what

Bleh

Oh yeah. It’s true.

What makes this even more of a shitshow though? Well, if you don’t feel like digging through all the legalese to find this section, I’ve done it for you. This is what it says as of 2014-01-25, 19:53 PST:

Read that. Read all of it. Not just the legalese in white. Not just the “skimmer-friendly” version in gray. Read both and notice how they technically, for all legal purposes, say the same things…yet completely contradict one another from any practical standpoint. The gray boxes are all nice and friendly. The legalese is basically a great big ol’ FUCK YOU.

So yeah, signal boost the hell out of this.

GET ALL YOUR ART AND WORK OFF OF TUMBLR NOW!

NO, NO, AND NO. According to U.S. copyright law, the creator has copyright in any original work once it is fixed in a tangible means of expression. Tumblr is a “tangible means of expression,” which means people can see it, read it, etc. If you write a poem on a napkin, it is fixed in a tangible means of expression. That’s it. You don’t have to mail anything to yourself, you don’t have to register, nothing. You post it, you “have copyright” in it. Period.

The fear-mongering idea that your work can be exploited without your knowledge or consent “if you do not have a copyright” is invalid, because everything posted to Tumblr has copyright protection.

Further, if you read past the scary-looking licensing language, you’ll see that license is limited to the purpose of allowing Tumblr to function. For example, when you reblog something and add to it, you are *technically* (per U.S. copyright law) creating a derivative work of the original. So, for reblogging to be possible, Tumblr has to include a bit in its terms granting it (and you, the users) the ability to create derivative works of original posts. Otherwise, you’d technically have to ask (and receive) permission not only from the original poster but everyone else who made a substantial contribution to the original post before you reblogged it. And maybe pay them a fee. Ha. We all know that would be ridiculous and Tumblr’s features would be impossible without this provision.

Disclaimer: This is not legal advice, I am not your lawyer, etc. You can read some cool, absolutely official stuff about copyright here.

Born unto this earthiness, dirt under your fingernails
Shrouded in darkness, placed into a world
Of no meaning; no fulfillment; no joy
This endeavor is futile. 
Dig away at the emptied earth. The madness never ends
Suffocating in the insanity of deprivation!
Forever running far and fast, chasing dreams of something greater—

But doomed to rot in a coffin under six layers of stone. 
Everyone meets their grave, sooner or later. 

I know not my purpose nor my hope. 
In the face of time eternal, I am worthless. 
With each passing moment, each second wasted 
Slips away the fabric of time, from me. 
I am here on this earth, bound to a master clock
to which all things are slave. 
The great pendulum circles the Earth as it swings. 
And does it move ever so slow. 
But time will run its course— and I pray the day will come when everything goes dark. 
The day of my death. 
Though it may never be soon enough. 

The bell has rung. The ultimatum of the midnight hour. 

Stiff-necked metal hands sprout from the bell
poised to strike the midnight mark.
Your fate is sealed. 
Iron-fisted gauntlets clutch at your throat;
Pain and anguish are chilled to numbness. 
Your time is running out. The end draws near. 
You will not be forgiven. You will not be judged. 
An obsolete existence— silenced like a lamb. 
You are now dead.

Möbius ring-inspired bridge to be built in China

Architectural firm Next has been awarded first prize in a competition to design a bridge to span a river within the town of Meixi Lake in China, for its Möbius strip inspired design. Meixi Lake — next to Changsha in the Hunan province — is an experiment in urban planning. The 6.5 million square metre city development has been designed from scratch by architectural firm Kohn Pederson Fox Associates and centres around a manmade lake. Within Meixi is found an area called Dragon King Harbour River. It is here where Next’s bridge will be built. The pedestrian bridge is 150 metres across and 24 metres high, spanning the river via a number of different spaghetti-esque pathways at different heights. “The construction with the intersecting connections is based on the principal of the Möbius ring,” explains architect Michel Schreinemachers. “On the other hand it refers to a Chinese knot that comes from an ancient decorative Chinese folk art,” adds colleague John van de Water.

Artist Fabian Oefner enjoys capturing both art and science in his work. In his latest series, “Orchid”, the blossom-like images are the result of splashes. He layered multiple colors of paint, ending with a top layer of black or white, then dropped a sphere into the paint. The images show how the colors mix and rebound, a delicate splash crown seen from above. The liquid sheet thickens at the rim and breaks up into ligaments from the instability of the crown’s edge. It makes for a remarkable demonstration of the effects of momentum and surface tension. Several of Oefner’s previous collections have appeared on FYFD (1, 2, 3). (Photo credit: F. Oefner)

Eclipse at 44,000 feet

This photo is beyond words, but I’ll try anyway! While many awesome eclipse photos floating around the interwebs are fake (like this one), I assure you this otherworldly scene is 100% real.
It’s incredible for not only what it shows, but how ridonkulously difficult it was to take in the first place:
Last weekend’s solar eclipse (as seen here from space) was a short one, and it traced much of its inky path over the Atlantic ocean, meaning that, unless you were a particularly astronomically-minded whale, you didn’t get to see it first-hand.
That didn’t stop the folks behind this photo. Ben Cooper and his team chartered a jet out of Bermuda and set off to intercept the eclipse over the open ocean. 
Here’s where it gets tough. Their plane was flying at 500 mph, aiming perpendicularly (north-south) across the path of the eclipse. The moon’s shadow, crossing in front of the sun, was traveling across the Atlantic at 8,000 mph. From their longitude, the eclipse was only set to last 10-15 seconds. They had to essentially hit a bullet with another bullet, in a ten second window, and take a picture of it to boot.
And what a picture they got! Just an instant after totality the sun is beginning to creep out from behind the moon, creating a “diamond ring” effect. The plane and the clouds below are bathed in darkness, while billows along the horizon glow, still bathed in non-eclipsed light. Wow.
If you need me, I’ll be staring at this for a few hours.
