The biggest three Young Adult literature franchises in the past decade have been Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and Twilight. All of them were written by women.

And yet we still get articles like this:

And it annoys the hell out of me. 

Because John Green has said and done some great, wonderful things. He’s also done and said some super shitty things. He’s written some decent books, and done some good charity work.

But he did not save Young Adult Literature. He did not usher in a grand new era of Young Adult Literature. If anything, he is riding on the coattails of women more successful than him in the literary world.

My mom called my doctor and said to him “What’s the most accurate measurement for weighing?”
The doctor said “An underwater weighing test”
And just like that, my mom said “Yes. When can my son and my daughter can take it?” and the doc said “Today at 2pm.”

So, I didn’t bother taking a shower and so did my sister too, so I had to get into a special swimming suit(tight pants…Ugh).

My sister said “Can I pull my hair down to a ponytail?” The doctor said “No.”
So my sister with her long, blonde hair went underwater with 8 seconds and had she must enjoyed it..but I didn’t.

— someone posted this copypasta on /b/ in like 2003 and whenever anyone asked for clarification on any one of the bizarre non-sequiturs in it he would just reply with shit like “it was an underwater weighing test” or “her hair got wet” and the thread got up to 200 replies before he got banned by two different mods for frustrating the shit out of everyone and this is still the golden standard i hold trolls to (via sexhaver)

So I was looking up diagrams of the parts of the human brain for a project and this one helped me come up with a theory for what might happen in the next Homestuck update.

Okay, so remember when Sollux went blind after that one fight with Eridan? He went blind of course because he suffered lots of damage to the back of his head when he hit the wall. The back of the HUMAN brain is associated with vision; if a person suffered enough damage to that part of the brain, they would go blind. Sollux went blind from suffering enough damage to the back of HIS brain, which was associated with vision as well (otherwise he most likely wouldn’t have lost is eye sight). Assuming all trolls have the same typical brain structure, maybe a troll’s brain isn’t THAT different from a human brain. But that’s not my main point. Anyway, you get hit in the back of the head hard enough, you go blind. That happened to Sollux. I also took another look at the page where he was shown hitting the wall; I’m aware that his back (more specifically the thoracic spine, the upper-mid back) hit the wall first, but trama to that part of the spine can’t cause blindness. Trama to the cervical spine (the neck) can, but because of the way the spine is naturally bent (for humans, possibly for trolls too), I’m pretty sure that part didn’t hit the wall. The only possible region that suffering trama in could lead to blindness in would be the back of the head, and unless Sollux has a good reflex, a strong neck, and can defy physics, I think it’s safe to assume that his head hit the wall as well and not just his back. Even if he didn’t hit his head on the wall, he did get hit in the back of his head multiple times when Karkat dropped him down the stairs.

Now, let’s move on to Terezi. Remember when Gamzee, during his fight with Terezi, did that ‘Atomic Double Juggalo Backbreaker’ move on her? He hit the back of her head on the concrete block thing hard enough to crack the concrete and spill blood. Sollux hit the wall hard enough to crack the wall and spill blood. Not to mention, Terezi didn’t exactly like the idea of being able to see again again. So what if, because of that move Gamzee made on her, Terezi went blind again? We know she got up, but we can’t be sure if she could still see because she was wearing her blindfold.

If Sollux could go blind from head trama, I don’t see why it can’t happen to Terezi too.
