alpha-beta-gamer:

Tormentum is a dreamlike 2D adventure game full of intelligent puzzle design and stunning artwork inspired by H.R.Giger and Zdzislaw Beksinski, as well as games such as Demon’s Souls and Dark Seed.

The game is set in an unfriendly, nightmarish, violent world full of Giger-esque art that’s both repulsive and beautiful at once. The protagonist is a man whose faith dealt him short, and despite amnesia he tries to pursue his wandering and not to give up.

The Tormentum Alpha Demo offers a short taster of what the full game will offer, with some inventive puzzles, a dark storyline, an intuitive point n’ click interface, an unsettling music score and some gorgeous artwork.  Tormentum looks set to be a nightmarish adventure you won’t want to wake up from.

Redid a post by fucktonofanatomyreferencesreborn with sources because they never source anything and I don’t want to reblog that post because I don’t want to support blogs who don’t give credit to people

(No, stating that the art is ~not yours~ and ~came from elsewhere~ IS NOT PROPER CREDIT. Many of these have usernames and such on them but not every single one and you still ought to link back to the specific piece)

I couldn’t source the last one so I didn’t include it.

Pet your turtles, they enjoy snugglies more than pain

I feel like this is especially appropriate for cars and turtles in the road.

And don’t drill holes in them or paint em. Its painful and toxic and you’ll make the poor things cry! 

Our turtles love having their heads and chins scratched.  And a light pat on their shells.  No hits, or thumps.  They love good pets, please pet them with love.

Shells are LITERALLY their backbone, imagine if someone thumped you hard on the spine. It would suck right? Don’t do it. 

Also their shells are covered in a VERY thin layer of fingernail-like material called scutes. When you paint it, a) it’s very easy for the toxins in the paint to absorb into the turtle’s system and poison them, b) it cuts off circulation to the thin layer of living skin below the scutes, c) it deforms the shell because turtles, especially young turtles, grow rapidly and the paint will inhibit proper shell growth and d) prevents the turtle from absorbing necessary vitamin D from UV rays (you know, that stuff they need to live). NEVER EVER PAINT A TURTLE EVER.

Next time you want to knock on a turtle/tortoise shell, go ask your neighbor to punch you in the ribs, and see how that feels. Not only is it the spine, but their lungs sit near the top of the curve as well—THIS IS WHY TURTLES/TORTOISES CAN DIE IF LEFT FLIPPED OVER TOO LONG, IT IS VERY DISTRESSING FOR THEIR BODIES.

This is my brother, Alastair. He is an aspiring musician and photographer, an excellent cosplayer, and an overall nice person to be around. He recently told our mother that he is transgender and wants to start transitioning soon with the help of hormone therapy. He has already set up an appointment in August to get his first 3 month supply of testosterone. Our mother is completely against testosterone and refuses to call Alastair by his preferred name and pronouns. As soon as he starts taking testosterone in August, she is kicking him out of the house, no questions asked.

This past week has been extremely upsetting for both my brother and I. Our mother is being very controlling. She will not allow us to see certain friends and believes all of our friends are toxic, when in fact they have been very supportive. She believes Alastair is going through a phase, but this is something that he has wanted for years.

To support my brother, I’ve opened a fundraiser, so when he is forced to leave at least he will be able to support himself financially. He just graduated high school and is currently unemployed; he needs all of the help he can get.

I’m unbelievable angry at our mother for not being supportive of Al, and at our step-father for treating him like a joke. Please, if you can spare a dollar or two, I will be forever grateful. I want my brother to be able to pursue the life he wants to live. He is an extremely intelligent, creative, kind and funny person. He is full of potential. I think if I can see look at him and see that, a few kind strangers can too.

If you are unable to donate, please reblog this. Thank you.

I have been a cat owner my whole life and I literally never knew that tiger lilies and stargazers were also highly toxic to cats.  Even drinking the water from the vase that lilies are in can kill the cat!  I brought in a tiger lily from our yard today and just thought to look it up and found out (and of course removed the lily from our house as soon as I saw).  How scary!

Other toxic flowers for cats:

  • Amaryllis (Amaryllis sp.)
  • Autumn Crocus (Colchicum autumnale)
  • Azaleas and Rhododendrons (Rhododendron sp.)
  • Castor Bean (Ricinus communis)
  • Chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum sp.)
  • Cyclamen (Cyclamen sp.)
  • English Ivy (Hedera helix)
  • Kalanchoe (Kalanchoe sp.)
  • Lilies (Lilium sp.)
  • Marijuana (Cannabis sativa)
  • Oleander (Nerium oleander)
  • Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum sp.)
  • Pothos (Epipremnum aureum)
  • Sago Palm (Cycas revoluta)
  • Spanish thyme (Coleus ampoinicus)
  • Tulip and Narcissus bulbs (Tulipa and Narcissus sp.)
  • Yew (Taxus sp.)

Important info for cat friends!!!
