I am not a fan of centaurs, but I had not previously considered centaurs in early 1900s swimwear. 

'Lustige Blätter' was a  German satirical magazine founded by Alexander Moszkowski in1888 and published until 1944. It was particularly popular in the time of the Weimar Republic.

Centaurs. In swimwear!

1. Do not kill yourself. Killing yourself is very messy and your mother will cry over you. It is not beautiful or brave, and even if it was, you will not be around to see that.

2. Washing your hair is going to be a chore. But you should do it anyway. Because you will feel better about yourself.

3. Get up late. Have a lay in. Sleep past your alarm. You have a very long life ahead of you and for now you should appreciate the cold side of your pillow.

4. He is going to break your heart but he’s just another male human who finds it hard to deal with Mondays, too. So in a month you’ll wake up and you won’t even remember that little scar on his knuckle you kissed.

5. Don’t spend hours looking up what your name means on google. Your name is your name and you should go out there and do heroic and good deeds and give your name your own meaning.

6. Don’t fight your demons. Your demons are here to teach you lessons. Sit down with your demons and have a drink and a chat and learn their names and talk about the burns on their fingers and scratches on their ankles. Some of them are very nice.

7. Music is good for your soul. Rap music will energise you and boost your ego and pop music will cheer you up. Indie music will make you think and emotional songs will make you cry and think about that boy again. It’s healthy.

8. Victim complexes are not attractive. Boys and girls will not date you because you are sad. They are not going to date you and kiss your aching bones and cure you of your dragging depression. Wake up. Take a bath. Do your hair. Be attractive.

9. Sadness is not poetic. Depression is not beautiful. Laying in bed all day and eating too much is lazy and disgusting and it is not tragic or pretty. Get up. Go outside. Let the sun warm your bones. Live.

10. If it makes you happy, buy twenty of it. Dedicate your life to it. Print it on tv shirts and collect things and draw art of it. Do not care what people think. They are the unhappy people you need to avoid. The abuse they will hurl at you is painless compared to how sad they are. Pity them. Remain happy.

11. You are allowed to he angry. But the world is not working against you. The flowers do not bloom for you and when your mother shouts ask her if she is okay instead of thinking she hates you. She never will. The world walks beside you and is silent. It does not trip you up or carry you.

12. Day and night cycles are natural. Humans only sleep at night because we used to avoid predators in the dark because of our poor eyesight. Stay awake until 5am watching bad reality shows. Wake up at 7pm and have breakfast.

13. Eat when you are hungry. Being bored does not constitute a chocolate bar. Sleep with you are tired. Do not mindlessly obey the sleep at night rule. If you are not tired, do not sleep.

If you see something like this, DO NOT CALL AN EXTERMINATOR!
Call a beekeeper, they can relocate the hive instead of killing them. Bees are dying at an alarming rate, please do not contribute to that! They are so important for our ecosystem!


yo fuck this i aint gonna call no beekeeper i’m moving before i’m dead

I’m going to call an exterminator so the exterminator can kill them. I’ll be able to sleep at night knowing that there are less bees in the world.

No bees = no food.
No food = no life.
Congratulations on destroying the world.

Because you seem to not understand that bees pollinate flowers and literally bees are the reason we have food.

Did you guys even watch bee movie

you really really must call a bee keeper!

My family’s house had it’s entire attic taken over by bees one year. They slowly started appearing in the house, and then they were everywhere.  We called a bee keeper, and he removed what he said was the largest domestic honeycomb/bee nest he’d ever seen.  I was so terrified I’d gone to stay with a friend.  My folks called me to meet the bee keeper, and he led me on the most magical journey through the house.  He explained the bees were harmless if you move calmly through them and don’t swat at or harass them.  He was only stung once because he accidentally put his hand down and smooshed one.  The bees landed on me, walked a bit, then buzzed away.  All honey combs and bees were safely removed and relocated.  Call a bee keeper, they are awesome!



seriously if youre afraid of them thats one thing but if you advocate for killing them i will personally deliver a wasp’s nest to your bedroom so you know what real terror is and then i will shit in your fridge because i can


Also remember it is illegal to deliberately exterminate bees in a lot of states. I think the statute is in the agriculture laws. That said, if I found a hive that size in my house I would totally lose my shit before checking quietly into a hotel.

The new thing this summer for stylish book cases is the belt. Here we see my personal shelves wearing webbed nylon by Allied International.

Who am I trying to kid. The book case was sagging and bowing under the weight of my books, and the shelves were collapsing. If the thing can’t hold books, it makes me wonder what people DO store in these things. Anyway, Fox and I used two ratcheting tie-down straps to force the sides of the case closer so the shelves won’t fall off their pins.

Hey, livingwithdisability, is the middle right-hand image common in folks with autism? I think I may have that issue (I have it every time I go to the dentist and it makes it a horrible experience every time) but no one’s ever told me it could be an issue, and I’ve just been assuming getting fillings is supposed to hurt like hell.

Hi imangryimmadimbad
I asked Hannah (Stickmancrips) on twitter for you, she sent this link
http://hypermobility.org/help-advice/local-anaesthetic/ about EDS and pain, maybe that is not quite what you asked but she says she does not know about pain and autism.

Both hypo- and hyper-sensitivity to pain are common in autistic people. It is one of the areas of sensory sensitivity that comes bundled with other aspects of being on the autistic spectrum. Also, some people may have counter-intuitive reactions to some medications - for example, a high-school friend of mine who I’m certain is on the spectrum becomes extremely hyperactive when given certain medications used for general anaesthesia.

Well I do think it goes beyond my normal awkward mix between being hyper sensitive and being completely insensitive to pain. (Stub my toe? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH. Cracked rib? Oh, I didn’t notice.)
It’s mostly whatever they use at the dentist’s office since I’ve never taken a sedative before - but they either they never use enough or the local anesthetics aren’t working for me.

I have a goal to read as many of these kinds of books as possible. I own a whole bunch. They were huge inspiration for writing Lesbian Pirates From Outer Space. I want more.
