don’t say you’re a writer if you just write fanfiction for your entertainment. you’re only a writer if you kill a bear with a typewriter to appease the spirit of hemingway and slather yourself in ink in tribute to shakespeare, the one true over-penis of literature.

If someone mixed The Princess Bride with Spamalot! and threw in some Blackadder and finished it off with a dash of Mel Brooks, you might get something like this?

photos by matt smith from the Illawarra coast in new south wales of bluebottles, violet snails and blue dragons. 

despite its resemblance to the jellyfish, the bluebottle is more closely related to coral. known as a zooid, the bluebottle (or portugese man of war) is a colonial animal composed of many highly specialized and physiologically integrated individual organisms incapable of independent survival. 

the blue dragon — a type of nudibranch, here no larger than a thumbnail, with its own potent sting — is able to eat the nematocysts (stinging cells) of the bluebottle without discharging them and internally relocate them to the tips of each one of the fingers you can see in the pictures.

for their part, the violet snails also feed on the bluebottles.

notes matt, “despite their potentially dangerous sting, the bluebottle is an amazingly beautiful creature. with strong winds, hundreds of these cnidaria are blown into the bays around my home town and trapped overnight.”

this allows him to capture the above shots, which he creates with use of a fluorescent tube in his strobe light and a homemade waterproof lens dome.

Hogwarts Psychoanalysis by House and Typology : #003 Ravenclaw
If you do not know what typology is, or you do not know your own typology, please go here before continuing on below.

ENFP
Of all the types, Luna Lovegood would probably most suitably fit into this one. Champion Ravenclaws are flowing and colourful, living their life with such enthusiasm that it can be inspiring or sometimes strange to others. They have a very optimistic view on the world, and have many creative outlets that they wish to inspire others with. They are some of the friendliest Ravenclaws within the house.
INFP
This is a very common type among Ravenclaws, and they are some of the most intuitive and considerate within the house. They often watch others, saying nothing, but modestly offering to lend a useful hand when they are needed. They are not very social, but tend to have a few very close friends. These people they are very loyal to, and willing to do things they would not normally do if they need it.
ENFJ
Ravenclaws within this type have the need to share their intellectual talent with others around them. Others feel naturally inclined to ask them for advice, and in return they are happy to share their wisdom. They have a natural intelligence about them, and this works seamlessly with their need to lead others on the path they wish to be on. They are some of the most social of Ravenclaws, and one of the most common extraverted types within it.
INFJ
Counselor Ravenclaws are among the most considerate individuals within the house, wanting to help others to the best of their ability. They tend to be quite shy, but given a chance to be close to a person, they want to do their best to make sure that person is comfortable and pleased. If someone they feel close to is in pain, they tend to feel this as well, which provides them with such discomfort that they compulsively need to do something about it. 
ESTJ
Those within this type are very well what one may consider a textbook Ravenclaw, as they tend to be very particular in their methods. They are extremely intelligent, and this coincides with their sharp focus on life. They are responsible for themselves, making sure to do what needs to be done and having no hesitation in the matter. They expect others to be this way as well, and may often get bothered by those who behave in a way they see as unconventional. Despite this, they are also the strongest social group within the house, and enjoy giving wisdom and insight to others.
ISTJ
One of the most common types within the house of Ravenclaw, people within this type are extremely patient and meticulous. They notice the smallest details within their materials, and this causes them to be both excellent students and employees. Dedicated and responsible, they crave things which can give them the satisfaction of doing. That is to say, if they are not being held responsible for something, they feel stagnate. Inspectors in the Ravenclaw house are not often outspoken people, instead focusing on other things, giving them quite the stoic appearance.
ESFJ
While not too average a type, Provider Ravenclaws are some of the sweetest individuals in existence. They have both a social and intellectual wisdom about them, and they use this to help others in their community. They feel it their duty to do this, because they are quite aware of their intelligence. While not boastful about it, they feel this was a gift given to them by nature, and therefore they must use it to make the lives of others more convenient. 
ISFJ
Protector Ravenclaws are very much into the mind set of tradition, and they tend to hold many things sacred. They are deeply into history, and think things must be preserved for future generations to know of. When someone disrespects these things, they can feel personally offended, and pull away from this person quickly. They are not the most social of people, much more into the material than the social aspect of life. To some, they may appear snobby or stand-offish.
ENTP
 Ravenclaws within this type are very innovative and interactive with others. They like to lend a hand in most situations, giving a fresh perspective on an old problem. They are incredibly great at doing this as well, as they have a strong creative nature about them, which can often rub off on others. 
INTP
Architect Ravenclaws are great philosophers and theorists, thinking of the world in their own unique way and rarely letting others influence it. They try to figure out how things work on their own, and they want to solve problems that no one else has seemed to be able to. Their mission in life is to try and make the world a better place, and they do this through their bright intellect.
ENTJ
ENTJ Ravenclaws are natural strategists, who would be great at the game of Risk. They are great at mapping everything out, either literally or mentally, and deciding what their best course of action is. This intellectual skill makes them fantastic leaders, and they have the instinctive nature to fulfill this role. To some they may come off as blunt and stubborn.
INTJ
These Eagles are absolutely brilliant and master scholars at what they do. They are sharply focused on their goals to the point of obsession, and they can fall into their hobbies or work to the point they will seclude themselves from others. They have little to no need for relationships with others, since they are so dedicated. It is only if they take a moment to step away from this that they may feel a sense of loneliness.
ESTP
The true creative nature of the Ravenclaw tends to shine through this type. Creative by nature, these people are extremely innovative, seeing the world through their own very unique perceptive. Not generally affected by the opinions of others, the true freedom of the Ravenclaw flies through in these individuals, which allows them to be incredibly successful in life. They are very balanced, maintaining a good sense of self while being quite social as well.
ISTP
Ravenclaws in this type have incredibly technical minds, tending to see things as puzzles. To them, the world is one large machine, functioning through many smaller parts that need to come together perfectly. Their drive in life is to help keep these functions in tact. This means they tend to make great mechanics, mathematicians, and artists.
ESFP
Performer Ravenclaws are among some of the most successful of their type, as their creativeness plus their showmanship makes them the life of the party. They can light a room, and they are very well aware of this, so they use it to their advantage. They enjoy being seen as an entertainment, and thrive off of making others happy. The most social of Ravenclaws, they are strongly affected by their peers, because they want to be seen as likable, though they are also aware that what others think should not bother them. This causes confliction, and they can become easily frustrated.
ISFP
The artists of the world, Composer Ravenclaws are very in tune with themselves and things around them, making them very creative beings. No matter what their medium, they see a science within their artistry, taking it apart molecule by molecule in their minds and them putting it together as they see fit. They have little need for social interaction, and tend to keep to themselves, having one or two close friends.

This is a weed.

And it holds every child’s hopes and dreams.

"Weed" is a word for "plant I don’t know how to do anything with yet." But weeds, as a rule, are successful species. Because they can grow anywhere and they can live through anything.

So can you.

Be a weed. Grow, adapt, flourish, and don’t give a f-k what anyone else thinks of you because of how pretty or useful you are. You are. That is enough.

According to a recent study conducted by students at Harvard University, it is now literally impossible to properly satirize the issues of police brutality and corruption.

The study attempted to analyze various attempts at making satire directed at the prevalence of police brutality within the United States, and tried to measure the ability of various pieces of satire to adequately fulfill a number of standards of good satire.

"Satire," said one of the Harvard researchers, Alicia Powell, "is a form of comedy in which one portrays an exaggerated version of a social or political issue, and does so in a tone which clearly suggests condemnation of one side."

She continued, “On the one hand, satirizing the issue of police brutality seems extraordinarily easy. You just need to imagine a scenario where a police officer does something cartoonishly evil, and is defended by practically all of society and gets away with it. This seemed relatively straight-forward, but as our study went on, we came across some surprising - or perhaps not so surprising - results.”

The study involved interviews with various popular satirists, as well as exhaustive analysis of real-world instances of police brutality. One aspect of the study involved showing people a mixture of real headlines and satirical headlines involving police brutality and corruption. A sample size of two thousand people, across many races, genders, and various other backgrounds, showed that literally no one was able to distinguish between the real stories and the fake ones, with an astonishing 84% insisting afterward that clearly every headline was actually satire, as there was no way scenarios so absurd could actually happen in the real world.

One writer for the popular satirical news website The Onion said, “I was going to write an article about a police officer seeing a black man holding a sandwich, saying that the sandwich was actually a gun, and then shooting him ten times. Except now that’s actually happened. Only worse, because first he tasered the teen, and shot him not ten times, but sixteen. How can I write satire when the most absurd, outlandish things I can dream up are actually happening in the real world? I might as well just become a regular journalist, it would literally be the exact same thing at this point.”

Another satirist, the author of the Tumblr news blog The Wishwashington Post, commented, “I give up. I literally give up. I could write a ridiculous article about, like, the Ferguson Police Department doing a drone strike on Ferguson and saying it was self-defense because all the black people all had guns, and then they all get applauded for being brave officers and they all get bonuses and white people shake their heads about how violent black people are and how they were just looking for an excuse to protest or riot and how if they didn’t want to be bombed they should’ve just been more civil to white people… but honestly, I could probably turn to Fox News a few weeks from now and hear that story. Verbatim.”

They went on to say, in an exasperated and hopeless voice, “I can’t do it. They are literally parodies of themselves. I give up. I’m done.”

While the study did account for the phenomenon of Poe’s Law, in which satire of extremism is often indistinguishable from the real thing, the study nevertheless concluded that true satire of police brutality is now impossible. One of the study’s closing comments read, “You can poke fun at the extremes of certain situations, but when extreme is the norm, it seems almost fruitless and redundant. You could write a satirical article about how the sky is so incredibly blue, and you can play up how absurdly blue it is, but when you look up, it really is that blue. You haven’t made anything up. You haven’t made a cartoonish parody of the real thing. You’ve documented a fact. It’s not satire, it’s just humorous, depressing journalism.”
