I will say this once. And I hope you guys will heed it. The 12 regenerations thing was made canon by FANS. FANS are the ones that took it to heart because it was said once or twice in classic who. There have been multiple different incarnations of the Doctor that have given completely conflicting accounts of how many regenerations a Time Lord has. However, it was also widely known that regeneration was REGULATED by the Time Lords. They limited it to twelve. It’s safe to assume that when the Doctor got rid of the them, the limit on himself was lifted or he did something during the Time War to ensure that he would keep living unless he chose to not regenerate. Adding onto that point, anyone who thinks the series should end when the 13th Doctor is eventually met with a fatal situation is stupid. Doctor Who has the potential to go for another 50 years with multiple more Doctors. The 12 regeneration limit thing was said barely twice and everyone took it to heart for no reason. There was a limit because the Time Lords regulated it. It’s safe to assume that limit is gone since they’re gone or that it was lifted during the Time War to ensure they wouldn’t die permanently during battle. —
furthermore, why would the BBC drop a highly successful show just for the sake of what really comes down to a minor story detail? it’s like “oh, someone said this decades ago and the fans all agree on it, looks like we have to close it and stop making money now” right? (via youplaythewhat)
Besides, even if the 12 regenerations thing is properly canon, it doesn’t matter anyway, there have been so many things that have happened in the show that could be used as an explanation for circumventing that limitation.
Just, cannibalism as a practice is just so fucking fascinating. Like, no one even questions why the consumption of human flesh is so taboo in western society, when many cultures partake in it both ritually and in everyday life. From a practical standpoint, it makes perfect sense, especially where food is scarce. If someone dies of natural causes or from a non-communicable health issue, why not eat them? I mean we are made of meat, after all.
Eating Human makes you more susceptible to Prion Diseases, if I recall correctly, things like Kuru and CJD.
Of course, eating Human doesn’t guarantee you’ll get them immediately (in the same way that eating a Steak (from a cow, that is) doesn’t guarantee that you’ll get CJD, but I believe that the odds of it happening are greater.
It’s probably been a year since the last time it worked for me, at least in Chrome.

YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW MANY WORDS I’VE FUCKED UP
I love running into other people who mispronounce big words because I know I’ve found a fellow autodidact.
don’t ask me about the first time I said the word omnipotent. Just don’t ask.
Mine was eunuch.
Mine was abyss
(It took reading Shelley’s completely implausible and yet perfect rhyme scheme to figure it out, not that I even remember what poem it was in now …)
That way I can add friends to my list. :)
that not all television is mindless garbage
not all books are fine literature
not all video games are about murder and violence
and that things are often much more than they first appear to be
that art is powerful
and that it comes in many different forms
and from the most unexpected places
but that no one, no one, has the right to decide what is art and what isn’t.
that is a sad number of reblogs
I’ve installed Windows 3.1 with these
Please Reblog if you DID NOT HAVE the sex talk from your parents.
Reblog THIS ONE if you DID get the talk.
WHAT COLOR ARE MIRRORS
let’s reflect on this
Very slightly green. You can see this if you look between two mirrors that are pointed at each other, the more the apparent image recedes, the darker it gets and the more greener it gets.
Of course, a perfect mirror has no inherent colour, but in the real world, most normal mirrors are very slightly green.

As far as I recall, bus seats are designed with their patterns because they hide stains and damage better better. The reason for this is rather simple, the complex patterns in their designs, along with the often garish colours make it difficult to make out interruptions in those patterns that would be found in, say a bit of gum stuck to the seat, or a hole.
If the seats were one colour only any stains or damage would be a lot more obvious because there would be less visual clutter to sort through to see it.

I am sorry-not sorry about the space spam.
I have just rediscovered my enthrallment with stars and space. Probably has to do with Mass Effect combining with my TNG rewatch.
Definitely not complaining, bring on more space porn.
I NEVER KNEW THIS
I NEVER KNEW THAT WAS WHAT AMERICANS MEANT WHEN THEY SAID “QUITE”
WHY DIDN’T ANYBODY TELL ME
SUDDENLY THAT ONE SONG THAT GOES “HELLO I MISS YOU QUITE TERRIBLY” MAKES LIKE A MILLION TIMES MORE SENSE
are you serious british people
i feel like this means i’ve been overestimating your enthusiasm about things for my entire life
Given the numerous stereo-types about us British people, it’s surprising that you’d think we’re overly enthusiastic about much of anything.
