Try the Particle Clicker, and you’ll be a particle physicist for a while. I already have a very productive team working tirelessly. Also, the source code of this game is freely available on GitHub under the terms of an MIT license.
An addictive incremental game that teaches players the history of high energy particle physics.
Developed during the 2014 CERN Webfest over a weekend.

Q:Before reading homestuck I thought it was a bunch of dead teenagers living in a mansion floating in space and whenever someone died they got horribly mutated before coming back to life, i.e. being grey and getting horns.
i just wanted to put this out there since im sure it’ll get written about differently tomorrow.
Q:but eridan killed people and was genocidal which is worse than anything cronus did
yeah but what cronus did is something a hell of a lot of people have experience with, so the hate is more personal. it’s like how you can hate voldemort abstractly for being a psycho murderer but everyone can really personally connect with how loathesome and nasty professor umbridge is in her much smaller and pettier abuses. a lot of us have never had a serious attempt made on our lives, but most people who have been through highschool remember how much we hate getting touched and mocked by bullies who pretend that everything is happy funtimes right to our faces while they hurt us.
also idk but I’m p sure by the respective standards of Beforus/Alternia Cronus is objectively worse based on the culture and what is expected of a violetblood
Yeah, I mean, I think a lot of the ways Eridan is terrible were heavily influenced by Alternian cultural systems that encourage violetbloods to be racist against all the other castes. There was a whole bit during the Condesce’s exposition telling us how she’d take advantage of these cultural biases to pit highbloods against lowbloods. She’d have every reason to do this, because it helps her stay in power!
I know that Eridan is called out in his introduction as going beyond even that, but if one were to argue from that to say how he’s some kind of special-case where he would have been genocidally racist anyway, and thus would have done the same things, then I think they’d basically have to claim that the culture that one is raised in would have no effect on what their beliefs are, and thus, their actions. Which…doesn’t make any sense to me at all.
With Cronus, you can’t really argue that his behavior was influenced by the culture he was raised in. He even says that he’d basically give Mituna ‘what he deserves’ if they were on Alternia, so…I mean, I think that implies everything else I’m trying to say here.
Soooooo are they in danger of getting gunned down, or nah?
I think ima reblog this once a day for the next forever..
Forever reblogging! Impersonators
Let me call up MLK and ask him how that suit thing panned out for him…or Dr. Henry Louis Gates…or President Obama and ask them how that suit thing works.
I’d gun em down if I could get away with it.
Another reason why respectability politics = bullshit
- dudes: "all men watch porn just get used to it"
- dudes: "men just have stronger sex drives than women, its just biology"
- dudes: "we can't help objectifying women, its in our dna"
- feminists: "rape happens a lot in our society and most are perpetrated by men, towards women, and i can't tell the difference between safe men and dangerous men just by looking so i tend to be wary of men sometimes"
- dudes: "NOW WAIT JUST A FUCKIN SECOND HOW CAN YOU GENERALIZE ALL MEN THATS SO UNFAIR"
- The “not all men” excuse refers to RAPE and other aggressions and violence INDIVIDUAL men commit against women. When you say “not all men” you are saying, “yes some men are bad and may be dangerous, but some of us are good!” This is a derailment tactic that serves no useful purpose but to reassert patriarchy and rape culture.
- When we say “not all feminists are like …..” we are saying that you cannot define an entire MOVEMENT by the actions of an individual.
- Any logical person can see that this comparison is apples and oranges.
You realize that everything the police are doing in Ferguson is carefully calculated, right? They’re purposely turning peaceful protests into riots. They’re purposely committing violence to incite violence. From saying ‘We won’t be answering 911 calls,’ which is a very clever way to set themselves up to be able to say, ‘We were afraid for our safety - any call could really be an ambush, our lives were in danger’ right down to the camouflage and the military tanks and wearing more body armor than a soldier in a war zone. Its exactly why they’re going for a media blackout - yet allowing certain photos through - they WANT you to see their tanks. They want you to see their riot gear. They WANT you to see a war-zone. They’re trying to sell the world the idea that this community is inherently and constantly a source of violence and turmoil - they want you to think that they [the police] are being attacked daily in a place so vicious they need full body armor. You know why? Because then, at the end of the day, you might just be able to believe the story they’re going to spin. They’re going to tell you that this (white) officer goes to work in this war zone every day - that he spends every working moment in constant fear for his life. They’re going to tell you that Michael Brown attacked this officer. And then they’re going to bring up everything that has happened in the aftermath and try to use it to convince you that he shot that little boy because he was afraid for his life. They’re setting up a defense. You mark my words, they’re trying to set up a defense.
the purge is scary because its a time frame in which you could be the target for random, unimpeded & unpunished cruelty just for being in the wrong place + wrong time and youll be blamed for not being adequately prepared & alert
if youre black and/or queer and/or trans this is also known as “every waking moment”
