The whole SciShow office is so freaking stoked about this it’s adorable. To be clear, I also have not been this excited about a movie (that wasn’t based on my brother’s book) since Deathly Hallows.
Holy crap you guys
can we just take a moment to imagine little cute nine-year-old hermione reading matilda
and peering into this book about a smart, bookish girl who could move things with her mind
and then can you imagine her concentrating very hard on the books on the bookshelf and slowly, slowly, getting them to move
Sometimes I get huffy about tumblr but then I see that 260,000 people got the same kind of chills I did reading this…
I know someone who will love this!
The Register. Ever hilarious and cynical.
WTF you guys
Ask me again why I hate mainstream media.
My dad just came into my room and shouted at me in Klingon.
Am I more embarrassed that he did that or that I know he said I was a disappointment to the empire?
You should be most embarrassed that you’re a disappointment to the empire.

Thank you for taking the time to explain the bill to me. I am afraid to say that I am unsatisfied by your defence of the bill.
You say that the ECJ ruled the existing law illegal, so what we in the UK need is an emergency, temporary provision to cover this case.
Let me quote the ECJ ruling, “The Court takes the view that, by requiring the retention of those data and by allowing the competent national authorities to access those data, the directive interferes in a particularly serious manner with the fundamental rights to respect for private life and to the protection of personal data. Furthermore, the fact that data are retained and subsequently used without the subscriber or registered user being informed is likely to generate in the persons concerned a feeling that their private lives are the subject of constant surveillance.” [emphasis mine]
Please explain, how DRIP is anything but a circumvention of the ECJ’s ruling, violating our rights to a private life? Expiration in 2016 does not reassure me, I do not want my private life to be spied on by my government for one day, not one second.
I am very concerned,
If a wizard watched Doctor Who and the Weeping Angels became their worst fear then they came across a Boggart and it changed into an Angel, and since whatever takes the image of an Angel becomes itself an Angel, would that bring Angels into existence in the Harry Potter universe?
Okay this fucked with me majorly
Don’t wrestle with a pig, you both get muddy and the pig likes it.
