This is why Rome won so many battles. Enemy spies would wait for them to read battle plans to themselves while mouthing the words; trouble was, they had learned not to!

Spoken language is still processed through the auditory sense and centers. Your brain cannot tell the difference between things you actually hear and things that you have only imagined hearing. Silent reading is imagining the sound of words being spoken. The big question, is what kind of voice do you hear reading the words? (I hear my own voice as it sounded when I was 5.)

^Which is also why if you are close to someone, you often imagine their voices as you read their text messages.

This is such a weird thing to think about. Since I’ve pretty much always read to myself since I speed read.

I’ve always loved reading. The moment I learned how to read silently was honestly the most magical thing I can remember.

JOINTS IN MOTION

As said by IFL science

Cameron Drake of San Francisco has created a collection of magnificent images showing joints in motion. He was aided by orthopedic physician Dr. Noah Weiss and the finished product is completely amazing. If you’d like to know more about the project, please check out Drake’s blog.

I need more people to notice this.

HOW TO COVER THICK EYEBROWS: Cosplay tutorial.

After my Uta cosplay I got a lot of questions on how I covered my eyebrows, mine are rather thick and a lot of people have trouble covering their eyebrows when they’re as thick as mine so here is my tutorial for you! This by no means the perfect way or right way, this is just what works for me.

MATERIALS: Glue stick, plastic knife, White powder, concealer, regular powder and face paint (optional)

  1. Get a gluestick, doesn’t matter the color. Cut of a big chunk of it and slap that sucker onto your brows, don’t worry it will wash out and not tear off your eyebrows. I’ve done this many times. Take a plastic knife or what ever tool you prefer and smooth the glue across your brows till they are fully covered. (I rushed so mine could have been blended better but eh whatever)
  2. You will want to get some white powder/makeup and cover your eyebrows where the glue is. I unfortunately ran out of my powder so I used white face paint instead for this, while it still works you’re MUCH better off with a white powder, it gives it a cleaner look.
  3. Time to use yo liquid concealer. Smother yo brows with concealer till no purple can be seen, I also used a little bit of pink facepaint to cover places where the purple stood out a lot.
  4. Now take your powder and whatever other makeup you use and BLEND IT ALL OVAH. You want to make it look as seamless as you can (Step one comes in VERY handy here, the better you blended the glue the better it will look at the end, I went back and blended my glue a little more.)

AND TA DAH! Now you’re an eyebrowless beautiful person.

DAAAMMNNN!

HETEROCHROMIA FRIENDLY DOLL MAKER? SIGN ME UP.

Also I totally do that thing with my hands IRL. He-man calls it “zuricatiar”, from “zuricata”, meaning “meerkat”. So literally, “do the meerkat thing”.

He-man lives to mock me.

it even had a tiny hat accessory. How could I not? (Though no makeup? Really? >_<)

Have you ever wanted to have dinner with LeVar Burton? Or maybe try on his Star Trek visor? Also wanna help kids all over the world read and learn cool things? WELL NOW YOU CAN!

LeVar Burton— my dad— has started a new kickstarter (click the link) to fund his awesome Reading Rainbow app. The prizes are really cool and involve people like Patrick Stewart and Laurence Fishburne!

If you can donate 5 dollars, please do. If you can afford more, you rock. If you can’t, please signal boost to do your part!

We’re counting on you, Tubmlr— the community of nerds and awesome people.

Sharing this because it’s a good cause. For anyone who isn’t familiar with “reading rainbow” it’s a show Levar Burton hosted before, during and after TNG on public television in the states. Quite successful and popular, it advocated literacy for kids and taught them about the joys of reading, showed them great books to read, and was just a great program. Sadly it ended in 2009, not by anyone’s choice, and now Levar is seeking to revive it. And at the speed people are donating, I think he’ll be successful. So chip in if you can!

Is it time for the telepathic internet sing-a-long? I THINK IT IS!
