Random Acts of Geekness

Miscellaneous outbursts from a very eclectic mind with a twisted sense of humour.

Harbor Police arrested a 29-year-old man early Sunday morning, July 27th in a hotel at 333 West Harbor Drive. He was booked into San Diego County Jail at 11:20 am on charges of sexual contact with a minor and contributing to the delinquency of minor. The victim, a juvenile female, was transported to a hospital for evaluation and treatment. The Harbor Police Investigations Unit is handling the incident. This investigation is ongoing.

HE HAS BEEN ARRESTED.

For those who don’t know what has been happening,

According to the girl’s mother, her injuries are severe, and indicate a vicious beating. Here is the account of what occurred from Tumblr:

IF YOU WENT TO SAN DIEGO COMIC CON OR KNOW ANYONE WHO HAS, PLEASE READ.

One of my dearest friends was found on the side of the road, unconscious and bloody. She was wearing this cosplay on the day it happened. She was last seen with friends when she ran off after a disagreement. Please, please, please, if you have ANY information or saw her anywhere, contact her mother. The full information is down below. This isn’t okay and it’s sickening to know that this happened at a place people truly can enjoy themselves. Please spread the word.

”I just received a call from the San Diego Police Department and my daughter REDACTED aka REDACTED was found on the side of the road covered in blood with no ID unconscious. They are unsure what happened to her. My husband is on his way to the police station and then the hospital. If you have any information on what happened to her please send me a facebook message or call me at REDACTED. Thank you in advance”. -REDACTED

Remember when SDCC said they didn’t want to make their anti-harassment policy clear because it would make it seem like there was a problem? (more)

well too fucking bad, now it REALLY looks like you have a problem, you fucks.

A followup to my previous post.  THIS is why I am vocal about things like the Backup Project, Cosplay is not Consent, and safe con-environments overall.  GRRRR!!!!!!

sixpenceee sixpenceee sixpenceee Please reblog!! The humane society in my area will be closing, and so they must get rid of all their animals ASAP. The Pensacola, Florida Humane Society has taken in as many as possible, but (as always) they are full to capacity. These animals must be adopted very soon or they will be euthanized. I love animals and it hurts my heart to think about these animals dying. So, please, if anyone wants to adopt a pet and you live near Florida, please contact the Pensacola Humane Society!  I’ve witnessed the incredible things simply getting word around can do, so it would really help if you reblogged, sixpenceee  Thank y’all if you reblog ❤️❤️❤️

literature meme | characters 2/7

Lady Macbeth, Macbeth’s wife, a deeply ambitious woman who lusts for power and position. Early in the play she seems to be the stronger and more ruthless of the two, as she urges her husband to kill Duncan and seize the crown. After the bloodshed begins, however, Lady Macbeth falls victim to guilt and madness to an even greater degree than her husband. Her conscience affects her to such an extent that she eventually commits suicide. Interestingly, she and Macbeth are presented as being deeply in love, and many of Lady Macbeth’s speeches imply that her influence over her husband is primarily sexual. Their joint alienation from the world, occasioned by their partnership in crime, seems to strengthen the attachment that they feel to each another.

Ok, just because I’m a total geek… The top pic is of famous actress Ellen Terry (painted by John Singer Sargent). That dress she’s wearing was recently restored. The glittery bits aren’t sequins…they’re beetle wings. 

The wings are naturally shed, so no bugs were harmed in the making of the dress.

okay, you’ve probably seen this around on tumblr, and read somewhere along the lines of “THIS IS SOMEONE DYING WHILE HAVING AN MRI SCAN”
well. that’s NOT true. this gif is from the Walking Dead, a t.v show. No one actually died while having an MRI scan.
BUT what is true, is that this could be a representation of what actually happens. 
Researchers planted electrodes in 6 mice, and then killed them afterwards by injecting them with poison. What they found is that immediately after their heart’s stopped beating, there was a surge of brain activity. For 30 entire seconds, there was continuous, heightened brain activity. Their brain suddenly seemed to go into overdrive, showing all the hallmarks not only of consciousness but a kind of hyperconsciousness.
Here’s a source: X

FWIW, when my 20+ year old cat, Walter, passed away a few months ago, I think this happened to him.  I had held him most of the day, and he was nearing the end, so I got my stethoscope to check his heartbeat.  His heart slowed, then nearly stopped, then there was this amazing rush of something like thunder roaring in my ears. It was like the passage of a tornado or something, and I think it was his spirit leaving his body. Amazing experience.

PLEASE REBLOG THIS IF YOU ARE A SHERLOCK FAN AND HAVE READ MORE THAN ONE OF THE STORIES

Ok, so maybe I’m old-fashioned, but how can people get through life without having read the stories? I own a couple of copies of the complete works, one annotated and illustrated.  Plus, the collection on my Kindle.
