eyyyy so this part 1 of a commission for a super cool person whose girlfriend came up with an A+ AU, lemme just copypaste the summary of it mmyes

"1930s Gravity Falls AU where Uncle Stan’s a bootlegger who runs a still, and maybe a moldy little sideshow as well. When the kids move in one summer he soon has them running rum all through the valley (vintage car chases with the deputies optional, but encouraged) and in their spare time, they investigate all the usual bizarre goings-on in Gravity Falls. She also thought maybe Li’l Gideon would be some kind of tent revival preacher boy, whom Mabel kept having to fend off."


this was so much fun and there’s more to come yeayeayea

Smart page with string

These pages from a late-16th-century scientific manuscript share a most unusual feature: they contain a string that runs through a pierced hole. Dozens of them are found in this book. The pages contain diagrams that accompany astronomical tracts. They show such things as the working of the astrolabe (Pic 1), the position of the stars (Pic 4), and the movement of the sun (Pic 6). The book was written and copied by the cartographer Jean du Temps of Blois (born 1555), about whom little appears to be known. The book contains a number of volvelles or wheel charts: revolving disks that the reader would turn to execute calculations. The strings seen in these images are another example of the “hands-on” kind of reading the book facilitates. Pulling the string tight and moving it from left to right, or all the way around, would connect different bits of data, like a modern computer: the string drew a temporary line between two or more values, highlighting their relationship. The tiny addition made the physical page as smart as its contents.

In Tumblr’s bizarre accidental recreation of the late-90s internet (auto-playing music, terrible background images, obsession with animated gifs) Tumblr kids reinvented the webring. Or maybe the fanlisting.
Anon, on the subject of Tumblr Networks. (via boomstab-papa)

I see you bryankonietzko.

Ha! I didn’t actually come up with this. Mike, Tim, Josh, and Katie named it after me and my propensity for raw vegan smoothies. I’ll have to try this particular recipe, though I will likely throw a banana or two in there.

The drink Lin had near the end of the episode was named by the chef as the "Kalenutsco" Konietzko, Kalenutsco?
