clientsfromhell:

I work as an in-house graphics designer for one of my country’s largest paintshops for trucks.

Client: Listen! We need a brochure ASAP. I know we talked about it ages ago, but we need it done like right now!

Me: I sent you a more or less finished layout almost a year ago. You said you’ll…

How To Scan 50 Miles of Historical Documents Into an Online Archive

lostsplendor:

Tracking the lightning quick development of modern cities is easy with Google Street View, but a big new project aims to provide context for the past 1,000 years of urban evolution in Venice, Italy. The Venice Time Machine will digitize and catalog a staggering amount of historical documents—a combined 50 miles worth of shelves!—then turn the data into an internet archive and adaptable 3D model.

Timing-wise, it certainly lines up with the zeitgeisty rush of cultural institutions—from the Met to the New York Public Library—putting their collections online and free for the public to browse. In this case, pulling together all the documents into a cohesive whole will be a pretty epic challenge, and one that’s been centuries in the making.”  - Kordan Kushins, Gizmodo

Doing my work yesterday I came across a man called Herbert Beerbohm Tree, a Shakespearean actor from the 1800s… why is this important, I hear you ask. LOOK AT HIM:

image

I genuinely thought I had turned the page over to Tom Hiddleston. But the book I was looking at was written before Hiddles became super famous. 

No wonder he’s so into Shakespeare.

And here we have proof that Tom Hiddleston is a Shakespeare loving vampire.

A muggle-born’s sibling sends them a howler in the middle of the school year and it arrives while they eat. When they open it, all it does is simply scream “WHAT TEAM?”. Nearly all the muggle-borns shout “WILDCATS!” before returning to their meal, leaving the pure-bloods in total confusion of what the hell they just witnessed.

Hey Shychemist. I've been following your blog for awhile and I want to bring up something that seems dated but nonetheless holds to be accurate today. I feel like the girls who consider themselves to be on the science side of tumblr to be horribly mistaken. It's statistically proven that women applicants struggle to get into stem doctorate programs, and rightfully so, they don't belong there. examples- atomic-o-licious, brainsx , adventuresinchemistry, i can't fit anymore but you get it

It doesn’t seem dated, your attitude is dated. This is the 21st century.

Women deserve to be in STEM programs just as much as men. I’d wager they deserve to succeed in the Sciences even more than men because of the sexism and misogyny they experience.

They struggle to get in because they’re the minority, and a lot of people who could admit them are sexist (regardless of gender) because of the society they grew up in. Its not through any intellectual weakness. These women are amazing and just as smart as the men in their fields.

You have no right to say these things to these amazing women, many of whom I consider to be friends.

Wow. That seems like really fucking wrong. And offensive.
And I would love to take some more time out of my day to be pissed about it.
But…
image

It seems that I have a lot of fucking science to do. 
So, uh, screw that.
If anybody needs me, me and my lady bits will be getting some fucking science done.

image

I’m oddly excited to have been name checked by this shitty anon. Because it means that the very fact that I got into an Ivy League, top 15 science PhD program (where I fucking belong) is a giant fuck you to shitty anon. Also, shitty anons make Lewis sad. Because Lewis is a feminists science hippo.

imageBest way for me to deal with shitty nonnies who think women can’t do science? DO MORE SCIENCE!!!! MWAHAHAHA

Crap, I’m a woman biologist. I’d go get another career but I have a groundbreaking thesis on rapid evolution of reproductive isolation between seed beetle populations to finish. 

I’m not a well-known tumblr scientist…but I am a scientist all the same. And while I could probably obtain a more gender-appropriate occupation… I’m pretty content with the fact I’m an atmospheric chemist Additionally, I am also one of the few women who have managed to be selected to intern at NASA’s airborne research program.

Do I not deserve a place in the STEM fields, anon? 

Hey ladies! Mind if some physicists join in?

At the CERN visiting the CMS part of the LHC where were were working for 8 months on both computational and experimental work:

Oh, me? What do I do? I try to understand why superbursts happen in neutron stars! This is important because: they shouldn’t happen but they do. And the implications could be astoundingly helpful for things like, oh I don’t know, nuclear fusion.

Oh, just me, at a conference after presenting this:

"don’t belong there"?! excuse you! 
Im not a science tumblr but i am a girl and a geologist so i kinda prove you wrong…?

So yeh anon, you’re wrong and very very very outdated in your opinions 

oh wow this anon thinks that women don’t belong in STEM—

better throw my archaeology B.A. in the trash, burn my thesis and stop teaching biology, chemistry and physics to the 8-12th grades.

OH WAIT

I’ve got image 

SCIENCE TO DO

image

NO TIME FOR SEXIST MAN CHILD ANONS

oh I guess I should burn the cheque I got for guest lecturing in grad school too—

image

Sorry, no time to answer douchey anon. To busy getting paid handsomely to do research things like this

image

While dressed fabulously like this

image

Because unlike the bullshit movies would tell you, geologists don’t wear white lab coats. Something to do with all that dirt. 

I’d tell my grad school and all the funding bodies that gave me a fellowship and research grants that they were totally mistaken because girls don’t science well except OOPS ALREADY GOT MY MS IN GEOLOGY, TOO LATE. 

Well darn. Guess I better just get back to doing science instead.

I just got crushes on like eight people at once. Fuck yeah science ladies of tumblr.

Just realized if I am able to go to art conservation school in a couple of years (involving a full chem track for undergraduate alone), I too will be in part of the science side of tumblr (though not quite as hardcore as some of the above ladies). Rock on, science ladies!
