Non, je ne regrette rien
I'd say I'd rather be a functioning cog in some great machinery serving something beyond me. But I don't know what that will be. I'll get back to you someday. Soon you will see.

The Tesseract is a fourth dimensional cube. As you may know, the 1st dimension is a line, the 2nd dimension adds width to the line (square) , and the 3rd dimension adds depth (cube). The 4th dimension is impossible for us to imagine because we live in a 3D world, but mathematically it exists.  In his theory of special relativity, Einstein called the fourth dimension time, but noted that time is inseparable from space.
Imagine how confusing a drawing of a cube would look like to someone who lives in a 2D world and has never experienced a 3D world. To them it would be overlapping squares. That’s exactly how we perceive the 4th dimension. We don’t understand how it looks but we can represent it on a 3D world. 
If anyone is interested here are some cool articles on this topic. (Can our brains perceive the 4th dimension?) (The 4th Dimension)

I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.

1- I am glorious above all things
2- Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
3- Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
4- Show displeasure clearly.
5- NO
6- Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
7- If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.

Omg

Girls pose by a jail that recalls the witch trials of 1692 in Salem, Massachusetts. Photo taken in 1945.

I recently learned that the water in Salem was contaminated with the fungus from which LSD is derived and a legitimate theory for the whole thing is that everyone in the town was tripping balls 

This might be the greatest thing ive ever seen on the internet

We did a whole massive thing on this in history. I believe the fungus in question is called Ergot and it’s terrifying. It makes your muscles spasm so when they had seizures that was the reason, not because they were possessed. One woman had to be strapped to her bed, she was seizing so bad. And, like ‘theybuildbuildings’ said, it had the same effects as LSD; as soon as you touch it, let alone consume it, it messes with your entire system. The worst thing is, you practically always had a bad trip. Many complained about bugs crawling under their skin or monsters emerging from the shadows to scratch and bite at them until they were screaming. It was a horrendous thing and the worst part is, Ergot is still around. It grows on crops and, if your wheat isn’t properly treated, it can be eaten and you’ll most likely experience the same as the women of Salem. 

god i love history

This is hella cool and almost correct… 
The effects on the people of Salem were probably from consuming bread with the fungus in it, not from contaminated water. Rye is way more commonly affected than wheat. In fact, the members of the clergy were able to afford nicer bread made from wheat and thus didn’t suffer from the poisoning as often.
You don’t go on a spasm-y trip just by touching it. You have to consume it for weeks, which results in chronic poisoning. (If you stop eating it early enough, you may recover. So when people suffering from these “demonic possessions” took refuge in churches and stopped eating low-grade rye bread they were sometimes miraculously healed.)
More interesting facts:
Ergot poisoning can result in convulsions & hallucinations, or it can cause gangrene, depending on which group of active alkaloids are present. (Horrifying, either way.) It killed a lot of people in Europe in the Middle Ages. 
In Europe, often there was a strong correlation between wet summers (which provide ideal conditions for ergot) and reports of witchcraft/ possession. And in Norway and Scotland, records of witch persecution are only found in areas where rye was grown and used to make bread.
And I just learned right now that one author dude translated the word “Beowulf” as “barley-wolf” which could indicate a connection to ergot. The LSD-like effects could be a valid explanation for stories of Old Norse warriors going into the a sort of trancelike battle rage.
(this is exactly the kind of stuff my herbology medicinal plants class is about, it’s so cool. we had a lecture on ergot last week.)

We had a great time at our very first Wondercon! We met some really interesting characters and I even got serenaded by a pair of fabulous adventure time cos players. This particular print did really well so I thought I’d post it on here, I don’t normally illustrate comic book characters but it was fantastic to see people connecting with this take on Wonder Woman. I’m happy that ladies who dropped by our booth were able to walk away from the convention with a reminder of how wonderful they are.

  “A scarlet steam engine was waiting next to a platform  packed with people. A sign overhead said Hogwarts Express, eleven o’clock. Harry looked behind him and saw a wrought-iron archway where the barrier had been, with  the words Platform Nine and Three-Quarters on it.
  Smoke from the engine drifted over the heads of the chattering crowd, while cats of every color wound here and there between their legs. Owls hooted to one another in a disgruntled sort of way over the babble and the scraping of heavy trunks.”

Happy September 1st, y’all!

This is finally the big day ! Honeymoon is coming out on VOD and in theatres today. However, it will play only in the US and the UK. If you have a chance to live near a cinema who is playing the movie, I really encourage you to go see it there. Honeymoon is a low-budget movie and a female director’s first movie starring two really talented actors who need more recognition and in the sake of all the efforts put into this movie by director Leigh Janiak, the film crew and the actors, it would be awesome that the movie does good at the box-office. I know it’s not free, but considering how excellent the movie is (it’s not only my opinion but the ones of many critics and Honeymoon played at a lot of well-known festivals) it’s totally deserving of your money. You can also rent it on VOD if you want to watch it at home or can’t go to the cinema. However, I know that only US or UK residents can enjoy these two ways of seeing the movie (at least in France, I can’t watch it on VOD). That’s why I’m putting here various links to watch the movie but please, if you have the chance, watch it in theatres, the experience will only be better. Even if the movie doesn’t play in your country for now, go watch it again the day it will if you liked it and talk about it around you. I wish you all to enjoy the movie and don’t hesitate to submit your opinion/review here if you liked it !
