don’t say you’re a writer if you just write fanfiction for your entertainment. you’re only a writer if you kill a bear with a typewriter to appease the spirit of hemingway and slather yourself in ink in tribute to shakespeare, the one true over-penis of literature.

Medieval Hair Care
So that hair might grow wherever you wish. Take barley bread with the crust, and grind it with salt and bear fat. But first burn the barley bread. With this mixture anoint the place and the hair will grow.
Cook down dregs of white wine with honey to the consistency of a cerotum and anoint the hair, if you wish it to be golden. 
If the woman wishes to have long and black hair, take a green lizard and, having removed its head and tail , cook it in common oil. Anoint the head with this oil. It makes the hair long and black.
If, needed, you wish to have hair soft and smooth and fine, wash it often with hot water in which there is powder of natron [Native hydrous sodium carbonate] and vetch.
Take some dried roses, clove, nutmeg, watercress and galangal. Let all these, powdered, be mixed with rose water. With this water let her sprinkle her hair and comb it with a comb dipped in this same water so that [her hair] will smell better. And let her make furrows in her hair and sprinkle on the above-mentioned powder, and it will smell marvelously.

alternatively if someone asks you what you did today just grimly look down at your hands and say “something I should have done a long time ago…”

Dear Prudence: Telling bi people to stay in the closet is bad advice

It’s a horrid coincidence that Slate’s Outward (LGBT) section celebrated their one year anniversary on the same day as their advice columnits Dear Prudence gave HORRIBLY biphobic advice to a bisexual woman to stay closeted.  Thankfully that has been called out by both GLAAD and Eliel Cruz at The Advocate, as well as mocked in gif form over at Autostraddle

Let’s hope someone can give Emily Yoffe some basic bisexual competancy training before she hurts any more vulnerable bisexual people with her ‘advice’.

Emily “rape victims should just stop getting drunk at parties” Yoffe continues to be the worst.
