minecraft wedding went pretty great id say
[id: minecraft screenshot. @inara, a player with light blue skin, pale purple hair, a white skirt/top and gold armbands, shifts next to abby, a player with pale skin and brown hair wearing a tuxedo with a flower on the lapel. Abby is also shifting. They're standing under a wedding arch surrounded by flowers and fallen snow. fallow, a player who looks like a blue slime creature with goggles on aer head, lurks in the background. end id.]

Okay, Minecraft Wiki.
now has anyone tested it is the question...
I don't know what art fight is and at this point I'm too afraid to ask
Ooh, OK. That sounds pretty neat but I'll be honest considering how much I've seen people have been hyping it up for the last couple of months that's a surprisingly anticlimactic answer
Thell, you cannot just hide this in the tags.
worldbuilding be like e
i accidentally hit post and yknow what? it's better this way
valid and also i feel compelled to contribute this tangentially relevant thing i said the other day
"new set of genders
lets just classify everything based on that now
make an entire language that has a suffix for thinsg
based on whether they believe in free will or fate
apply that to chairs now shall we
does this chair believe in free will
arguably that could lead to a classification of animate vs inanimate things but then there's the question of viruses
really any talent i have comes from taking the logical extension of ideas to the point where they no longer make sense and restructuring things around them in the industry we call it worldbuilding
i call it a good pastime during lectures"

built alex's room in mc, modified the colors and doodled over..
oh thats neat!! i tried to do something like that for one of my stories but stopped cuz i was having trouble with scale lol. this is a cool room, i like how u made shelves out of the stairs!
I really want everyone to appreciate this cat that I follow on instagram 💖💕
so pretty...very pretty cat
[id: screenshot of instagram post by "marceau_keebler_thatcher_isla"--is picture of a cat, presumably named Thatcher, who stands on a colored pillow on a couch. Thatcher is tall and lean with short fur and a pale chest, gray paws/face, blue eyes, and dusty-brown "pants" pattern. They have partial tabby markings on their head and legs; the stripes are somewhat broken and their color is a faded chocolate. Part of a cream-colored mayor's-ring marking shows on their chest. Thatcher's ears are very big, sticking out to the side instead of up, and their face is long and pointed. Their nose is a pale pink outlined by black fur. They gaze at something beyond the camera. end id.]
I need to share this with y'all
fallow's picture is a screenshot of a telegram conversation between fallow and aer mom. mom's icon has been blocked out in turquoise. fallow's telegram background is a photo of a dandelion with a drawn-on face smiling maliciously. anyway the conversation reads as follows:
me: i dont understand the significance of this but i figured you might-
me: ok then
uh i think the national anthem post broke my dash

whats a queue?
Hm I see. That sounds like it would be very useful. C: Maybe one day walter fall will have such an option. Until then I may spam. Thank you for explaining <3
hhow did u even do that to ur formatting x'D
it even works for bullet points but
only on the second press of the Tab Key
tho I'm not sure screenreaders would like this formating? IDk.k
ye i have no idea how theyd read it lol but otherwise this is chaotic and im here for it
haha maybe thisll make formatting transcripts of fallin' angels easier
- probly look really bad on mobile tho
- i dont know
nobody asked but im gonna ramble on about my research project
so my lab works on endophytes, which are microbes that live inside plants and help em grow. my particular project is on some strains of Pseudomonas bacteria that i isolated from agave seeds
they glow in under UV light and they're so good!!!
they're highly antifungal (hypothesis: they're fungal pathogens) and they're super helpful to all the plants i've tested them on so far (carrots/coriander/rice/catnip)
right now a friend from another lab and i are collaborating on a project between her catnip and my Pseudomonas to see if my Pseudomonas can induce the catnip to produce more of the essential oil that attracts cats
i'm hoping to get enough data from my other aspects of my own project to have a scientific article completed by this fall/winter
so my experience working in the lab is only restricted to my specific lab, but in general, biology research labs in the us all tend to work very similarly (huge wall of text under the read more fkjsda)
i chose plant pathology as my track precisely because i literally cannot handle hurting animals. i know mice as model animals is important for biomedical research, but that's a big no from me on that.
and honestly? most of my fellow grad friends are kinda bad at keeping their lab notebooks up to date. the lab notebook in a Real research setting isn't exactly the same as the notebooks you might have to fill out in class. the lab notebook is a legal document (at least here in the us), so you can't take it home or anything. most of the time we record data on a separate piece of paper (i have several random notebooks laying around for this purpose) and later on transfer it into the actual lab notebook.
in undergrad, there's a lot of following instructions, but at a graduate level, you kind of have to come up with your own instructions since you're solving problems no one else has ever solved before. it can get kind of annoying having to come up with novel solutions each time though, since there can be a lot of trial and error (and wasted time) involved dkjfakdsfj
i'd say a lot of people in academia are doing research to help better the world in some way. unfortunately, academia tends to retain egotistical people who value their reputation and publishable results rather than ones who are genuinely interested in passing on their knowledge. by the time grad students get their phds (and a lot of us drop out before then), they're burnt out by how academics (including people in their own department, or even their own advisors) treat them. i'm lucky my advisor is very laid back and doesn't treat us badly, but there are professors out there who are very mean to their students and basically treat them like slave labor.
from what i've read, nepetalactones activate some smell receptors in a cat's nose, so they're more like pheromones. i'm pretty sure they're not hallucinogenic, but then again, it's not like we can ask the cat.
our test run was on multiple plantlets. we don't test on just one plant because you need multiple points of data to make sure you didn't happen get an outlier. i think we did 7 plantlets per plate, with 3 plates per bacteria, totalling to 21 plants. that way we can get a good average and people can't dismiss us by saying "oh you only got those results because you have a small sample size"
if you really are interested in seeing if lab work is for you, i would recommend talking to professors who are doing research you're interested in and seeing if they would be willing to let you help them for a semester. my school let people do that for credits (or for money, if they were in a work-study program) and it's a good way to gauge if lab work is something you're passionate about. i know people who did bench work (actually doing the experiments instead of just reading/writing about them) for a year and decided they hated it, but it's only something they found out after they had that experience.
uh sorry this got very very long, i've been in a research lab for a while now and i have a lot of thoughts skjfksjf
huh, thats neat!
yeah our teacher made sure we knew lab book was legal document. (i am in usa too) We did take them home so I guess that's one thing different but she had us follow rules she say she had to follow in industry job (black pen, X out empty space, put initials and date everywhere, etc)
sometime people try to scribble last-minute in the book but she say nope nuh-uh gimmegimmegimme (grinning and chuckling and doing grabby hands while student reluctantly hands over book, she chooses which lab to grade by random so basically all of us were constantly concern about our grades dksfjgkh cuz sometimes it Would be That One Lab that we didnt finish...she say she do this bc in biotech industry you never know when lawyer show up, take your book for court case, could be any time; book need be ready else you get in trouble...i'd imagine works different where you are? sound like you work in college, i think she worked in company)
She tell funny stories like about how lab book need get witnessed by someone w/ PhD (and at her lab not many people had PhD, she joke about having to corner them to make them witness book x'3 ) and at some point her place have only one such person and she have entire book need be witnessed so she go up to their desk, dump her book there and run fdslkjhgfghj
huh, doing your own thing sounds...nice? both nice and hard i guess...
thats unfortunate, that people care reputation over doing good/helping world. &that people be mean. I remember when I was lot younger I was like "when i grow up i want PhD!" but then when I got in high school I learn PhD take like 8 more years of school and school very hard for me so this is no longer the plan. (...mostly wanted phd just so people have to call me doctor, anyway...fdjkgh u kno just. [non-gendered title that is also cool] "hey i want that"-)
ah i did not word clearly with the plant fjkgh i meant one type of plant rather than one actual single plant, was wondering if is special reason you try it on catnip in particular (like if you need catnip oil for something) or if was just to test
oh neato, thank you for response! no problem with long, i say long things too as you can see sldkjfgh

kinda pisses me off that people are saying queerphobic/acephobic/etc. shit while also supporting blm at the same exact time. we can uplift black people without shitting on others because i don't know if you know this but queer black people exist too. and they see that shit.
i mean... it's like, right here

Word List: Nonsense Words
Definitions of words that refer to nonsense
also here is a very important link
Стоит начать нести ахинею,
Как появляются следом за нею,
(Просто,чтоб поддержать разговор),
Дальше вы сами справитесь, да?
(This is a russian poem about different words for noncence, but here it's only till the letter "E", then the author suggest we can "continue further by ourselves". First verse is about how when you tell one type of nonsence (ахинея), other types of nonsence (белиберда, бессмыслица...) also start to appear in the conversation.)
fun fact gtranslate thinks its fun to throw in an extremely specific synonym that no one uses to replace exactly one(1) of these im. X'3
ur description is much more informative
do those russian words have specific differences in meaning? like i guess any distinction between "trivial nonsense" or "deceptive nonsense" or "lolrandom nonsense" or things like that?
oftimes i find myself wanting words that aren't there, for precision's sake
like. maybe they exist but if they do they're probably basically buried by now fdjdghdjxcv
"It's worth starting to carry nonsense,
As they appear after her,
(Just to keep the conversation going)
Then you can handle it, right?"
#&its not annoying when u put russian stuff #sometimes i wonder about so much stuff being in english and how that might feel to someone who isnt super familiar with it #or just in general since languages are different and its like u can express different things better in certain languages and #yeah im not entirely sure what im trying to say #i guess just that for the record #i think having a variety of languages on here is cool #and whats also cool is we can get general vibes using translator stuff #obvs it wont be perfect but #this translation however plain does communicate "nonsense" a lot #so i can tell it apart from like idk a poem about flowers or #somethign else #anyway #tag ramble #fallow buzzes #babushka #nonsense #google translate #languages #screenshot #id #described #russian #poem #words #conversation11 notes
really wish i could do cooking in the metric system tho like what even is a cup
im trained for the lab not the kitchen and i didnt even kno that a tablespoon was 15mL until a few months ago seems kinda unfair 2 me 2 just give things random names and never tell anyone what it means
bee uses metric but no idea what cup is. cup is cup, use mesure cups and has things.
ohoh think cup is 250ml or 200ml! bee mesure cups have on them. but don't remeber
[id: screenshot of a search bar and answer. in the search bar is typed "how many ml in a cup" and the answer is "1 Cup (US Legal) = 240 Mililitre". end id.]
oh yes yes it is 240mL! that's funny i never knew cup lined up to a whole number of mL
side note, why are there multiple types of cups,
[id: screenshot of a dropdown menu of units of measurement. There are lots of them listed alphabetically. The highlighted one is "Cup (US Legal)". Above that there is one that says "Cup (Imperial)". end id.]
ok apparently theres diffrent us/imperial versions of all those type of measurement?? looks like they only slightly different but seems like it would get confusing...[this is probably why lab use metric only not use cup or ounce]
why is it that i only want to cause trouble at 3 am
