She Who Is.

I have some imaginaries playing in the mind-house.
It may get messy here.

Biggest void in universe may explain cosmic cold spot
by Maggie McKee
It has been called a bruise on the sky – a curious cold spot in the afterglow of the big bang that has sparked wild cosmic theories attributing it to a run-in with another universe or a wrinkle in space-time.
Now it seems the answer may be a little more mundane: the biggest known hole in the universe.
The cold spot appears in maps of the cosmic microwave background (CMB), the earliest light emitted in the universe. Temperature variations in the light show up as a mottled pattern in the maps, which can be explained if quantum fluctuations at the universe’s birth were stretched out by a brief but spectacular cosmic growth spurt known as inflation.
But some features in the maps don’t fit into the leading models of inflation. For example, the relatively even pattern of the CMB is marred by an unusually large cold region. Scientists have struggled to explain it, suggesting a number of ideas that require exotic physics or even evidence for a multiverse…

 i love crazy shit like this :3

The Caberoi Scientists (characters of mine) know exactly what it is. It’s the hole in the metaphorical bathtub of the universe, where the universe drains from one side to the other. They’re more interested in plug theory. (which is basically theorising where the bathplug is. If indeed there is a bathplug at all!)

Finally figured it out, who Garrosh Hellscream (from the recent Warlords of Draenor clip!) reminded me of, in his expressions!  It’s the actor who plays “Vic the Dick” (Michael Mando) from Orphan Black. (Which is a great show, btw!) - Also known as “Vaas” from Far Cry 3.  ;D

The Sandwich mines!  Are you busy tapping out a rich vein of rye, or is it the pale substrata of commonplace dough? 
I know the sending in of the canary (in case of gaseous build-up) turned out not to work, what with the bird immediately assaulting a bread vein and expiring from over consumption.
I’m looking at having to go back to the cheese wells, myself. We’ve been sinking for basic brie. It may be better to mine the crumblier varieties.

"Comedy is acting out optimism."
- Robin Williams (July 21, 1951 - August 11, 2014)

RIP Robin Williams, thanks for the laughs and comfort when I really needed it. Your amazing legacy in film and comedy will live on forever as long as people can laugh. My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to the Williams family and anyone else who needs a little support.

On the passing of heroes.

thefrogman:

I decided to become a comedian at the age of 14. At that point I didn’t know how to be one—but I was eager to learn.

One of the first things I did was visit my local Blockbuster videotape rental store. Turn right as you enter, head to the middle section directly after the really old action…

Activision-Blizzard: Create an NPC within World of Warcraft to memorialize the late Robin Williams, an avid World of Warcraft player, and one of the funniest men alive.

please reblog this as much as possible

This would be so awesome! I had no idea he played WoW!

Me neither. So many options they could choose. Choose ‘em all. (I’d pick a genie in Uldum, or a dwarf called Doubtfire.)  I don’t usually tear up over celebrities passing. But he reminded me too much of too many things, happy and sad. Oh Robin. :(  RIP

The world is missing its Genie.

I didn’t even know until it crossed my dashboard just now, about Robin Williams’ passing. I didn’t even know he was an avid player of W.o.W.
Saw this petition doing the rounds too, to create an NPC in his honour.

I know in light of his death, talking about a game seems kinda trivial, but, hey. It was something he enjoyed a lot, by the sounds of it. And if it were me at Blizzard, I reckon Uldum could do with a genie to remind us of this singularly funny (and moving too - as some of his roles very much showed) - man.  For the silly times, and the very truthfully moving times as well.

RIP Robin Williams.
