I would say I’m shocked that an innocent photo of a lemon reamer turned into a spirited discussion on burning water

Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut I should know better than that by now.

FOR THE RECORD, THE SITUATION WAS FOLLOWS:

  • VERY LARGE SPARKLERS
  • MANY GOTHS
  • MUCH WATER
  • SUCH SPARKLE!
  • BURNING WATER! WOW!

Or, you know, we really did just kind of fail at load balancing the sparkler dunk tanks. WE DID NOT ACTUALLY SET THE WATER ON FIRE. THE WATER JUST HELD THE FIRE FOR SAFE KEEPING. NO ONE DIED. NO PROPERTY WAS DAMAGED. EVERYTHING WAS JUST FINE.

Also, TOTALLY not gothiccharmschool's fault. Yes, it was her house, but it takes a village to make flames jump out of a bucket of water. WE ARE ALL GUILTY! So it should not be used against her when she lobbies for a flame thrower.

Clearly.

The things people should take away from this story:

  • We are magical creatures who can set water on fire. 
  • I am completely trustworthy with fire, as I have never injured anyone or caused property damage. 
  • Therefore, I should totally be allowed a flame thrower. Or one of those low-flame “weed dragon” gardening tool things.

fun facts:
1. Sparklers are coated in a fuel oxidizer mixture, they have all the O2 they need to burn in solid chemical form already so under the right circumstances can burn underwater
2. Sparklers burn very hot, near or in the same range as magnesium (their fuel source is primarly Al if memory serves) so also given proper conditions much like a magnesium ribbon dunked in water catalyzes enough O2 from the water to continue burning a sparkler can rob enough O2 via catalyzation to make up for any deficits in it’s oxidizer supply while igniting the hydrogen produced consuming the remainder.

Science, Jilli. Not magic.

Science.

The flaming water bucket was science. Not even sufficiently advanced science, so totally distinguishable from magic.

Science that lends itself readily to DIY, in this case. I say, having a child who has to do science fair things annually.

DIY, Jilli.

DIY.

WE CAN MAKE OUR OWN STICKS OF FLAMING GLITTER!

FINALLY A USE FOR THE WIRE HANGERS!

Shit, someone’s going to tell Peev I said this, aren’t they? Then he’s going to come loom at me and  make the squincy face and take away my designated adult card.

OUR OWN STICKS OF FLAMING GLITTER! 

THANK YOU, SCIENCE SIDE OF TUMBLR!

Also, do any of you know which publisher brought out those editions of classic books I reblogged? Reverse image search is not helping me, and I want to track down that copy of Dracula. 

Anyone? Clicky-link?

The Hunger (1983)

Have I mentioned that I’m waiting for SOMEONE to write a crossover fic of the opening of this movie + Adam and Eve from Only Lovers Left Alive? Two vampire couples , warily eyeing each other across a nightclub?

pullinyouunder:

women of mythology - hecate


great goddess of the dark and the things that lurk within the shadows, that make heroes cower in fear, and wee babes weep for their mothers.

she is the night, the moon and star lit sky with hair the colour of a great and never ending abyss, eyes that bore into your very soul to see what you fear most, and lips that are not afraid to whisper to the dead and decaying things.

she is magic and witchcraft, maker of potions that grant power to those that use them, and necromancer able to control and rise the dead, speaking with the spirits of those long gone from this world into the next.

she is everything you fear and more. hecate.

I’m pretty sure I’ve reblogged this before. I don’t care. There are reasons, oh so many reasons, that I am reblogging it now.

Hey, everyone. So this is really, really important. Especially people in the TACOMA, SEATTLE AREA.
Early this morning (Sat. June 21) around 3:00 AM my husband saw somebody jump our backyard fence and snatch our 15 week old puppy, Fennris. Everything happened so fast, and it was completely unexpected so by the time we went after them, they had already gone.
The puppy is about 15 weeks old, an Alaskan Klee Kai (miniature husky). He weighs around 6-7 lbs and his coat is white/gray/black and he has bright blue eyes. He is wearing a blue collar with a nametag on it that reads “Fennris”.
We believe somebody grabbed the puppy, got into a car and drove away.
Please, please, please anyone in the Tacoma, WA area keep an eye out and if you see anything at all or hear anything PLEASE contact me right away.
If you don’t live in the Tacoma, WA area I would greatly appreciate it if you could signal boost this to your followers.
Fennris is the sweetest dog you’ll ever meet, and he’s young and he’s scared. He’s not just a pet, he’s a family member. Please help us find our puppy.
We are offering a $500 reward for his safe and unharmed return.

Coming to my Etsy once my current costume commissions are done: nightgowns. Not just any nightgowns. Nightgowns that will make you look ready for a midnight visit from Dracula. Because all you’ve ever wanted is to go to bed looking like a Hammer horror heroine.

Relevant to my interests. SO VERY MUCH SO.
