i hate the neologism “partner” for “person i’m dating”. i have no intention of being a cowboy and nobody will ever be a cowboy to me.

I DID meet a fake geek girl once. Turned out she was in fact an assortment of squirrels in a trenchcoat.
Those squirrels sure did know a lot about Batman, though.

A layer of human skin made from stem cells by a 3d printer
Guys, this is SO MUCH HUGER than this image. They actually have systems under development that can print directly into a wound.
The bioprinter has a built-in laser scanner that scans the wound and determines its depth and area. The scan is converted into three-dimensional digital images that enable the device to calculate how many layers of skin cells need to be printed on the wound to restore it to its original configuration. The system has successfully printed skin patches 10 cm square on a pig
Ten years. that’s how long they reckon until this is commonplace. Ten years.
And that article is two and a half years old! Check out what they can do now:

There was a really interesting post comparing tumblr and 4chan which made a point about the differences between discussions here and there. What it basically boiled down to was that despite all its trolling and rudeness, the folks at 4chan demand people back an argument up with facts - whereas the general M.O. on tumblr is to manipulate people with emotional arguments and then make them feel guilty for not agreeing, or for questioning, or asking for facts or sources.
I think the difference may be that on tumblr anybody who asks for more can simply be ignored, and the thread will travel over thousands of blogs of people who are either too gullible to question, or have been emotionally manipulated by tumblr folk to the point where they feel shame for questioning.
While I dislike the trite pretend abuse of 4chan, I think the manipulative and emotionally abusive culture on tumblr is far more perverse and dangerous. Because it’s been set up to literally teach people to NOT question things, and to simply take for granted “facts” stated by “authorities” who are authorities on the subject simply because they believe their own ideas, or because they identify themselves as an authority. It’s really pretty ridiculous.
