what did I just watch
Is that one supposed to be avril lavigne?
I just get so happy every time this shows up on my dashboard.
well this is rEALLY CUTE.
IT’S THE CUTEST THING I’VE EVER SEEN.
I have reblogged this at least 5 times and I don’t care
Genetically Modified Berry compared to Organic Berry:
Note that the modified specimen is bloated to about 3 times the mass of the common berry. Advanced rot has set in prior to maturity and tests revealed 78% more lactic acid in the modified organism.
Upon contact with the modified berry, the picker’s hands exhibited a rash which is clearly visible on the fingers and should not be mistaken for juice stains acquired during picking. While the common berry, of course, has no ill effects on the skin, the modified organism had an effect similar to poison oak and swelling set in shortly after the photo was taken. The discoloration and pain lasted approximately 12 hours with treatment including Neosporin and Syrup of Ipecac.
At 16 hours the specimen went missing and could not be monitored for decay rates. While the common berry remained, the modified berry was spotted the next Tuesday at the corner of Wallace and 12th St. Having grown another meter and a half, the genetically modified berry murdered two prostitutes and became the target of a cross country manhunt. It was last seen on February 20th in Boulder, CO where it has joined with several bananas from the Monsanto corporation and stolen at least two shotguns from the Boulder Police Department.
A manifesto was released online suggesting that the berries intend to strike at our nurseries, killing our young and replacing them with further modified organisms which we will raise as our own. They also intend to “free their enslaved brothers” by treating common fruits and possibly vegetables with mutagens.
The head of the FDA could not be reached for comment as he has gone missing. Only a glass of unidentified red fluid was found in his office, labeled “Extra Pulp”.
The number of people that aren’t reading the whole thing and are hailing it as fact make me laugh harder than the actual story.

oooo more book questions? yay!
7:What was the last bad book you read?
This is difficult because if I’m reading a book that I think is bad, I won’t finish it and I’ll forget about it.
I think the last bad-ish book I read was Written in Red, which is this cheesy supernatural mystery book that I got for free at Comic Con and I read it in the line for Hall H on Saturday night/Sunday morning because I was bored.
8:What made you dislike it?
The writing was pretty mediocre, but I could have looked past that if the plot and characters were interesting enough to make up for it. Unfortunately they weren’t. It actually started out not too shabby - a woman who is a blood prophet, meaning that she has visions of the future when she gets cut, escapes from where she’s being held captive and joins a community of supernatural creatures who end up protecting her from the people looking for her. Even the premise behind the supernatural creatures is pretty neat - instead of being locked in eternal war with humans or hiding from humans (like supernatural creatures usually are in these kinds of books), these creatures are much, much more powerful than humans, and basically most humans live in terror of them and they could probably wipe out humans pretty easily if they really wanted to.
Which would be great except hardly any of the vampires/werewolves/fairies/other creatures are interesting on an individual level at all. The main character, whose name is escaping me, is not a bad character, but without interesting supporting characters for her to interact with, her story falls flat. Also, after the initial excitement of the first chapter, the author basically settles into describing almost every detail of our heroine’s life among the supernatural creatures and her pretty much constant near-death experiences, and it’s all pretty humdrum. The creatures take an inexplicable liking to her, people are hunting her down for her abilities, a couple annoying human characters pop up to cause trouble, there is major sexual tension between her and her boss (who is also the leader if the werewolves, yadayadayada)….and that’s pretty much it. I started skimming in the middle because I got bored, but basically not much happens and the sexual tension is never resolved and it was very disappointing. (I’m not gonna lie, I thought there might be some hot sexy times at the end to make up for it, but alas.) It was free, though, so that’s something.
21:Who is your favorite character in a book series?
Hahahahaha you think I can choose?
-Gen (Queen’s Thief series), Attolia (Queen’s Thief series), Sirius Black, Hermione Granger, Professor McGonagall, Atticus Finch, Boromir, Faramir, Annabeth (Percy Jackson books)… there are many that I’m forgetting, I know it.
28:Which movie has done a book justice?
I really liked the movie version of The Help - I thought it stayed very true to the message of the original story. Also, Pride and Prejudice - I thought both the miniseries and the movie with Keira Knightly were great. And I think the stage production of Les Miserables is fantastic (the movies range from pretty good to pretty bad).
Oh and the Hunger Games! Really liked the first movie, and liked the second even better (which is weird because the second was my least favorite book).
