it could even be just random images firing off for no reason
THE HORROR CONTINUES!!!! We got two more good weeks of frights, boils, ghouls, and every worm in between. I got nothing more to add after last week’s announcement other than I love y’all and hope you continue to follow my work. I’m gonna work on a better main site for that kind of news. 


PATREON! + BACK!  
PINOCCHIO! + STORE!

Warning Signs of Satanic Behavior. Training video for police, 1990

the perfect photoset

A training video for police? Really now.

Lock me up I guess, because I have a decent number of those things lying around my apartment. Chalices, incense, pentagrams, and other general pagan (er, I mean “satanic”) items in general

I met this twerking, albino Raven named Pearl today. It is only one of four known albino Ravens in the whole world.
Pearl lives in this woman’s house. The handler has a permit, and the bird is property of the government (like hawks and falcons). She is affiliated with the California Wildlife Center. Every time the handler stopped petting Pearl she started cawing. She really likes affection.

This is the greatest knock knock joke in the history of all knock knocks jokes ever told, ever.

I think my favourite thing about this is the poor guy asking them not to do this again. how many times has this happened. he knew what was going to happen at the start. is this a regular occurrence

The Glory of Life in X-ray: a stunning series of X-ray images by medical specialist and artist Arie van ’t Riet explores the inner workings of animals and plants

Arie van ’t Riet has a unique view of life on earth. As a medical physicist based in the Netherlands, van ’t Riet teaches radiographers about radiation physics and safety. As part of his teaching program, van ’t Riet searched for an example to demonstrate and visualise the influence of x-ray energy on the contrast of an x-ray image. The higher the x-ray energy, the lower the contrast. “I arrived at flowers. After some years I started to edit and partly colour these x-ray images. And I added animals,” he says. van ’t Riet now produces a series of x-ray artworks demonstrating the inner beauty of life. 

Each image is produced at his home, where he has an x-ray machine under licence. All the animals imaged were already dead. “It’s not justified to expose living animals to the risk of x-rays,” he says. His work has now given him a new perspective on nature” (read more).

The Adjunct Crisis Is Everyone’s Problem
by Sarah Kendzior
“In 2012, I got my Ph.D. and left academia with no regrets. Like all decisions based on financial stability, it was not so much a decision as a reaction. Academia, I had discovered, was not an industry in which one works for pay but one in which you must pay to work. New Ph.D.’s are expected to move around the country in temporary postdocs or visiting professor jobs until finding tenure-track positions — financially impossible for me as a mother of two – or stay where they are and work as adjuncts with no job security and an average wage of $2,700 per course. While making an income below the poverty line, a new Ph.D. is expected to spend thousands of dollars on job interviews at conferences in expensive cities and write paywalled papers for free.
I left. But there is no escaping the consequences of academia’s reliance on contingent labor. If you do not experience the adjunct crisis directly as an academic, you may well experience it as a citizen: as a student, a parent, or a professional facing a similar contingency crisis in your own field. The adjunct crisis in academe both reflects and advances a broader crisis in labor. Our exploited professors are teaching our future exploited workers.
On February 25, 2015, adjunct professors across the United States are planning to walk out of the classroom to protest their low pay, lack of benefits, and unfair treatment. Their struggle is one we all should support. Here are the reasons why you should care.
Labor exploitation is not the new normal. Adjunct professors are distinct from other low-wage contract workers only by virtue of degree – that is, the Ph.D. Like other exploited workers, adjuncts are told that their low pay and mistreatment are the deserved consequence of poor choices. While low-wage workers without college degrees are told to get an education, adjuncts are asked what they thought all that education would get them. The plight of the adjunct shows one can have all the education in the world and still have no place in it” (read more).
