Twenty-something. Love BBC Sherlock, Doctor Who, longtime fan of Supernatural. (Less so over the last few years, unfortunately.) And Edinburgh. There will be pictures of Edinburgh, I'm sure of it. But... yeah, I like stuff. Funny stuff and pretty things are my favorite. :)

but why do we have to get married and have children

why can’t we just get a group of friends and live happily ever after in an apartment and share the profits

i’d be much happier that way

and nobody knows who started the tradition or what the rock even is for

i just think its really cool

Discipline allows magic. To be a writer is to be the very best of assassins. You do not sit down and write every day to force the Muse to show up. You get into the habit of writing every day so that when she shows up, you have the maximum chance of catching her, bashing her on the head, and squeezing every last drop out of that bitch.

The ship-shaking device was invented by the great mathematician and inventor Archimedes around 214 BCE. The Carthaginians used the device against Roman ships’ invasions. With the help of two poles, a pulley system, and a large hook, the Carthaginians were able to successfully combat the Romans for over two years. The Romans came to fear the sight of a hook and pole dangling over an enemy wall, for they knew that once hooked, their ship would be dropped on its side or even capsized. (Ship Shaping Device, Syracuse, 214 BCE)

Hello. My name is Achilles. You killed my best friend. Prepare to die.

Achilles to Hector, probably (via incorrectiliad)

On second thought, let’s not go to Troy. It is a silly place.

Agamemnon, in our wildest dreams (via incorrectiliad)

So, let me guess— you just started a new book, right? And you’re stumped. You have no idea how much an AK47 goes for nowadays. I get ya, cousin. Tough world we live in. A writer’s gotta know, but them NSA hounds are after ya 24/7. I know, cousin, I know. If there was only a way to find out all of this rather edgy information without getting yourself in trouble…

You’re in luck, cousin. I have just the thing for ya.

It’s called Havocscope. It’s got information and prices for all sorts of edgy information. Ever wondered how much cocaine costs by the gram, or how much a kidney sells for, or (worst of all) how much it costs to hire an assassin?

I got your back, cousin. Just head over to Havocscope.

((PS: In case you’re wondering, Havocscope is a database full of information regarding the criminal underworld. The information you will find there has been taken from newspapers and police reports. It’s perfectly legal, no need to worry about the NSA hounds, cousin ;p))
