Reading up on cryonic preservation. Ew. :-p #science  
If you could freeze yourself until a future age, are you sure you'd want to?

"St. Lawrence O’Toole, the second archbishop of Dublin and one of that city’s patron saints, died in 1180 in France. His heart was sent back to Dublin’s Christ Church Cathedral, where it rested inside a heart-shaped wooden box within an iron cage—at least until 2012, when it was stolen. The dean of Christ Church Cathedral has speculated that the heart might have been taken by some kind of religious fanatic, since it has little economic value, and much more valuable gold and silver objects were ignored. (Weirdly, the thief, or thieves, also lit candles on one of the altars before fleeing.) The item has yet to be recovered."

"We do not seem able to leave MR James (1862–1936) behind. His stories, like the restless dead that haunt them, keep returning to us: re-adapted, reread, freshly frightening for each new era. One reason for this is his mastery of the eerie: that form of fear that is felt first as unease, then as dread, and which is incited by glimpses and tremors rather than outright attack. Horror specialises in confrontation and aggression; the eerie in intimation and aggregation. Its physical consequences tend to be gradual and compound: swarming in the stomach’s pit, the tell-tale prickle of the skin. I find the eerie far more alarming than the horrific: James is one of only two writers (the other being Mark Danielewski) who has caused me to wake myself with my own screaming. Saw sends me to sleep." #writing #horror

"When a lady is playing a piano and someone is just straight-up staring at her like “oh my GOD this woman is playing the PIANO I wish I could use my dick to send her money and treasures but I CAN’T because it’s bound by layers of convention and also BREECHES”"
Some things that make period dramas great, costumes excepted.

. . . brushing up on brainz washing.

This bit sounds like the entire interwebs. lol:
"A good deal of brainwashing involves setting up trigger thoughts, little tricks and traps that help you deflect any incoming facts, beliefs, thoughts, or feelings that would make you suddenly stop believing the lies you’ve been duped into.  Part of this series is going to be identifying those traps, so you can avoid them in the first place."

zum zum. Refreshing on extra-dimensions and Stuff.
Now two independent groups of researchers suggest quantum entanglement may indeed be linked to wormholes. If this connection is true, it could help bridge quantum mechanics with general relativity, potentially helping better understand both.

I blogged! Somewhat. Site migration shenanigans led to site revamping, which, thanks to visitor feedback (via Fb), led to a bit more tinkering. IF you visit on a mobile devise and find the site isn't or is mobile friendly, definitely let me know! ( no, i don't haz a smart phone. :-( ) And a screenshot would be super appreciated for any visual problems. I thank you! :) http://a-girlstudio.com/

I guess so! I know website/blogging services come and go (apple, etc). Wix could be here today and then gone tomorrow, that sort of thing, which is why I'd always paid for hosting. But now I feel like phasing out some longtime expenses and responsibilities. We shall see!

I am really intrigued by this, but I can't tell if it's a true historical anecdote, or a blurb for the fictional book based on this 'anecdote'.
Imagine the reaction in 1854 when a Cheyenne Chief, at a peace conference in Fort Laramie, suggested the U.S. Army give the tribe “1000 white women” to...

Most American Indians assimilated into the greater culture, but I think it unlikely the government would have given away white women. Thank God it is illegal to own people of any stripe today, though secret slavery in wealthy households is on the rise.

That's great! And you've the option of novelettes too, which are 7-17K? You have to check on that. Every time I try to write a short story, I end up writing a novella. :-p I think doing a bunch of those really help get the stories done. I no longer have the passion and energy to draw my stories in comic book form.
