"[eBooks] aren’t books. You can’t hold a computer in your hand like you can a book. A computer does not smell. There are two perfumes to a book. If a book is new, it smells great. If a book is old, it smells even better. It smells like ancient Egypt. A book has got to smell. You have to hold it in your hands and pray to it. You put it in your pocket and you walk with it. And it stays with you forever. But the computer doesn’t do that for you. I’m sorry."

Someone took a candid photo of a fight in Ukranian Parliament that is as well-composed as the best renaissance art.

I get really mad about Western stereotypes about Eastern Europe and Ukraine specifically, and then they do stuff like this.

Scrolling past I thought it WAS a painting.

Charts from OKCupid, showing how straight women and men rate each other based on ages. For women, the men they find most attractive are roughly their own age. For men, the women they find most attractive are roughly the same age - 20 to 23 - regardless of the age of the man. (538)

While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.

Anonymous said: When you call Arden your wife, you mean like a "Tumblr wife", right?

I’ve been turning this over in my head for a couple of days, and I still have no idea what it means. Aside from the obvious, which is no, I actually married Arden and moved to America because of Arden - is this a phenomenon I missed? Are there Tumblr equivalents of every huge emotional moment? Can you Tumblr murder people?

This ask has been stuck in my head for days and it keeps making me laugh

There’s been some suggestion lately that #gamergate and #notyourshield are semi-legitmate hashtags. There’s been some suggestion not everyone is there to attack women, but to express genuine outrage at corruption in the games industry, or to identify themselves as minority members of the “gamer”…

My name is Arden, and after a few days of thinking I’ve decided that I’m going to ruin video games.
