motherjones: npr: Olympic athletes come in all shapes and sizes, from the lithe limbs of Japan’s Asuka Teramoto to the gargantuan frame of China’s Zhaoxu Zhang. But how do you measure up in comparison? Try the app and find out. — tanya b. Also sort of an argument that BMI is meaningless? I am most like some very athletic men. Well, that’s kind of awkward. I’m gonna go ahead...

ouyangdan: uminoko: Lifehacker recommended a Google Chrome extension that “pauses” gifs. So, all the gifs on your dash turn into still pics until you click on them. A bit of warning: if you un-pause, you can’t re-pause, unless you refresh. Otherwise, it seems to be working really well! I just installed it and it works exactly like she said. You can’t re-pause, but it does stop them...

Just bought another slipcover off eBay from a different seller. I will be better about acting faster if it isn’t exactly right this time. The staining on the other one is even worse than I realized, and it doesn’t look like any of it came out in the wash, so it’s pretty much unusable. Whomp whomp.

tumblrofthrones: as….”Boy.” Yep, sticking with Boy for now. I’m hoping that this will end up being like Harry Lloyd, where I find the actor very attractive out of character, but am creeped out/repulsed by them in character. Because finding Ramsay attractive would really fuck with my mind.

nanner: rosa—sparks: selfsamewoman: FUCKING VACCINATE YOUR FUCKING CHILDREN There is a whooping cough outbreak in my state. Several children at minisparks’s gym are now sick.
