Has anyone ever sat down and watched this video with the script in front of you so you could act like your Sally Sparrow and it will look like you are having a conversation with The Doctor??? or is it just me?

S- The doctor.
L- Who’s the doctor?
S- He’s the doctor.
D- [0:13] Yep that’s me.
S- ‘Kay that was scary.
L- No, it sounds like he’s replying but he always says that.
D-[0:19] Yes I do.
L-And that.
D- [0:21] Yep and this!
S- He can hear us! Oh my god you can really hear us!
L- Of course he can’t hear us! Look. I got a transcript, see? Everything he says. “Yep that’s me, yes I do, yep and this, next this, are you gonna read out the whole thing?
D- [0:37]Are you gonna read out the whole thing? (Together)
L- Sorry.
S- Who are you?
D- [0:41] I’m a time traveler, or I was, I’m stuck in 1969.
M- We’re stuck! All of space and time he promised me, now I got a job in a shop, I have to support him!
M- Sorry.
S- I’ve seen this bit before.
D- [0:55] Quite possibly.
S- 1969, that’s where you’re talking from?
D- [0:59] ‘Fraid so.
S- But you’re replying to me! You cant know what I’m gonna say 40 years before I say it!
D- [1:05] 38.
L- I’m getting this down, I’m writing in your bits.
S-How! How is this possible? Tell me.
L- Not so fast!
D-[1:13] People don’t understand time its not what you think it is.
S- Then what is it?
D- [1:19] Complicated.
S- Tell me.
D- [1:22] Very complicated
S- I’m clever and I’m listening and don’t patronize me because people have died and I’m not happy, tell me!
D- [1:28] People assume that time is a straight progression of cause to effect but actually from a non-linear non-subjected viewpoint it’s more like a ball of wibbly-wobbly timey whimey. …stuff.
S- Yeah I’ve seen this bit before. You said that sentence got away from you.
D- [1:43] It got away from me, yeah.
S- Next you’re gonna say is “Well I can hear you.”
D- [1:48] Well I can hear you.
S- This is impossible!
L- No its brilliant!
D- [1:52] Well not hear you exactly but I know everything you’re gonna say.
L- Always gave me the shivers that bit.
S- How can you know what I’m gonna say?
D-[2:00] Look to your left.
L- What does he mean by “look to your left”? I’ve written tons about that on the forum. I think it’s a political statement!
S- He means you! What are you doing?
L- I’m writing in your bits, that way I gotta a complete transcript! What till this hits the net! This will explode the Egg Forums!
D-[2:19] I’ve got a copy of the finished transcript its on my autocue.
S- How can you have a copy of the finished transcript? It’s still being written!
D- [2:25] I told you I’m a time traveler I got it in the future.
S- Ok let me get my head around this. You’re reading aloud from a transcript of a conversion you’re still having?
D- [2:22] Wibbly wobbly timey whimey.
S- Never mind that, you can do short hand?
L- So?
D- [2:41] What matters is we can communicate, we’ve got big problems now. They have taken the blue box haven’t they? The angels have the phone box?
L- “The angels have the phone box” that’s my favorite. I’ve got that on a t-shirt.
S- What do you mean angels? You mean those statues things?
D- [2:55] Creature from another world.
S- But they’re just statues!
D- [2:59] Only when you see them.
S- What does that mean?
D- [3:02] The lonely assassins they used to be called. No one quite knows where they came from but they’re as old as the universe or very nearly and they have survived this long because they have the most perfect defense system ever evolved. They are quantum locked. They don’t exist when they’re being observed. The moment they are seen by any other living creature they freeze into rock. No choice, it’s a fact of their biology. In the sight of any living thing they literally turn to stone, and you cant kill a stone. ‘Course, a stone cant kill you either but then you turn your head away, then you blink and oh yes it can.
S- Dont take your eyes off that.
D- [3:37] That’s why they cover their eyes. They’re not weeping, they cant risk looking at each other. They’re greatest asset is they’re greatest curse. They can never be seen. Loneliest creatures in the universe. And I’m sorry, I’m very, very sorry its up to you now.
S- What am I supposed to do?
D- [3:56] The blue box, that’s my time machine. There’s a world of time energy in there they could feast on forever but the damage they could do could switch off the sun. You have got to send it back to me.
S- How? …HOW?!
D- [4:10] And that’s it I’m afraid, there’s no more from you on the transcript, that’s the last I’ve got. I don’t know what stopped you talking but I can guess. They’re coming. The angels are coming for you but listen; your life could depend on this. Don’t blink, don’t even blink! Blink and you’re dead. They’re fast, faster than you can believe. Don’t turn your back, don’t look away, and don’t blink! Good Luck.

that was the best thing that has happened to me all year.

Well, after getting reblogged by thebrainscoop, my follower numbers have nearly doubled, and I have no idea what to do with that.

Hi new people!

Well, after seeing #stand with unionid bivalves, I knew what I had to write about next.

Unionid Mussels are a family of mussels that frequent the rivers of the Midwest. Due to what we’re doing to those rivers, many of the Unionids are becoming endangered.


This fellow happens to be a Wartyback Mussel, who I think has a cool name, and a look to match. There are other cool names in the group, such as:

  • Elephant-ear
  • Long Solid
  • Purple Catspaw
  • Pink Mucket
  • Sheepnose
  • Pyramid Pigtoe
  • Rabbitsfoot
  • Monkeyface

By the way, all of these are endangered in Ohio.

Aside from wonderful names, Unionids have some pretty cool reproductive strategies. Because mussels aren’t exactly fast swimmers, they have to figure out how to spread their young without them all getting swept downstream.


You see that fish in the middle of the picture? That’s not a fish. That’s an egg case full of tiny mussel babies. When a large fish like a bass decides to have a snack, BOOM! They get a face full of baby mussels, properly called Glochidia. This is what they look like:


Those tiny fangs are used to clamp onto the fish’s gills, where they hitch a ride back upstream. There the glochidia fall off and burrow into the sand. Eventually they find their way into the family business, filtering tiny organic particles from the water.

That filter-feeding lifestyle is why so many Unionids are endangered. All the silt and toxins we dump into the water get drunk up by these guys, killing them. 

Many aquatic ecologists are doing everything they can to save this group. The Ohio State University even has a breeding facility. There, they capture fish and infest them with glochidia. That has to be most confusing event in that fish’s life.

So proud. Bivalves are amazing. Spread the love. 

Though I don’t have any evidence to support this besides my memory of articles I read and personal experience, one of the reasons that these species are having problems in the Great Lakes is also because of Zebra Mussels. (Though obviously humans cause problems too, some of it is from other species.)

These things have invaded many of the smaller lakes in Michigan, and as a result of not having predators, have spread like crazy, and take over the lake, pushing out the other species. They’re also really annoying for swimmers, as they coat the bottom of the lake, and can cause serious injury to your feet. There’s really nothing that we can do at this point besides keeping them from spreading from lake to lake by keeping boats and other things clean.

“Harry Potter is symmetrical.”

Not just symmetrical - this is ring composition, favoured by Homer and other good writers. The 4th book is at the centre of the ring.

JK Rowling knows her beans.

Reblogging because I like that phrase a lot.


i love everything about this post

I love how dementors are synonymous to Umbridge. I agree with this completely.

This… is really amazing. I-… wow.


The technical term for this is a chiasm.  Props to JK for using a great old storytelling technique.
