just a casual reminder that Sherlock kissed John in ACD - The Empty House, The Return of Sherlock Holme (via the-daily-routine-at-221b)
Such a delicate, elegant way to speak of something that couldn’t actually be spoken out loud.
So much was the trust ACD put in the readers, that they would understand without him having to spell out something that he couldn’t.
So thick is the ignorance with which the average readers coat themselves and the denial they shield themselves with, to this day especially, in order not to acknowledge what ACD was asking us to understand.
the one thing that has stuck with me every day since my English teacher told me it in middle school is:
"When referring to someone, always say who they are before anything else about them, because being a person always comes first"
Instead of saying “the mentally ill man,” say “the man with a mental illness”
Putting someone’s characteristics (especially negative ones) before them is dehumanizing and rude. Don’t do it.
Jared Leto just accepted an award for playing a trans woman and did not mention trans people even once.
“And to those of you who have ever felt injustice because of who you are and who you love, I stand here in front of the world with you and for you.”
did you even listen to it?
Some people will just pick at everything won’t they
Yeah the fact the guy played the part to begin with, should be enough
dataSTICKIES are the next generation of data portability. They are graphene-based flash drives that replace USB pen drives and hard discs.
USB-based drives can be inconvenient to use as the positioning and insertion of the drive in the USB slot needs to be done precisely. When the slots are at the rear of a device, as is the case for many desktop computers, this task becomes even more troublesome.
dataSTICKIES solve this problem by carrying data like a stack of sticky-back notes. Each of the dataSTICKIES can be simply peeled from the stack and stuck anywhere on the optical data transfer surface (ODTS), which is a panel that can be attached to the front surface of devices like computer screens, televisions, music systems, and so on. The special conductive adhesive that sticks the dataSTICKIES to the ODTS is the medium that transfers the data. This special low-tack, pressure-sensitive adhesive is capable of being reused without leaving marks like a repositionable note. When the dataSTICKIES are being read by the device, their edges light up.
