Today I visited the medieval library at Merton College, Oxford as a guest of the Fellow Librarian. It is the UK’s oldest library that was designed to be used by scholars, and it has been functioning as such since its construction in the 1370s. You enter the library at the ground level through a massive door. Going up the stairs you reach the upper floor, where the books are stored. It is sensational to walk among the rows of book cases in the half-lit room. Their shelves are filled with hundreds of early-modern books (many still fitted in their original bindings), which are patiently waiting until someone will touch them again. Heavy benches hoovering over wooden floors are a reminder that this room was once filled with scholars leaning over their books, trying to catch the last light of the day. In the middle of the library a heavy 13th-century book chest is found, next to a small collection of shiny 14th-century astrolabes. What a heavenly place.
Pics (my own): library, book cases, consultation bench, book chest (13th century), stained-glass window (medieval), and entrance. More information about the library on Merton College’s website (here) and also here; more on Merton College, which dates from the 13th-century, here.
DeGeneres also masterminded the pizza boy gag. “When Ellen said she wanted to do it, we said we’d hire an actor, but she said, ‘No, no, no. You’re not hiring an actor. I want a real pizza delivery person,’ ” Zadan revealed. “We said that the FBI would have to do a background check. She said, ‘I don’t care. I want it to be real. I want this guy to walk in and not know he’s going to the Academy Awards.’ “

sticks and stones may break my bones but words constitute my entire existence and my ability to meaningfully interact with the universe because we live in a textual reality in which everything is constructed and coded by language there is no escaping the symbolic dimensions of language there is nothing outside the text there is nothing outside the text there is nothing outside the text

Der so f’in cute.
Something that always makes me seethe with rage is when people BLAME Ginny Weasley for having been possessed by Voldemort, they say she should have been “smarter” or “not as weak”. It’s really annoying because I see it way to often and it is used in a way to like discredit Ginny as a character, which is just ridiculous.
Ginny Weasley was an 11 year old girl. She was violated by someone that was exceptionally more powerful than pretty much every wizard in the world. She was stripped of any choice, her free will completely taken from her. She was FORCED to do things that she had no choice in. Her inoccence was taken from her, no questions asked.
Somehow she was able to fight off Voldemort from completely controlling her for most of the year. She was able to survive something that is extremely traumatizing and not only does she survive it but she thrives after it and becomes an example that life doesn’t end when terrible things happen. That is not “stupid” or “weak”.
The fact that you could blame her for what happened to her is disgusting and a sad reflection of society’s tendency to blame the victim.
This is super awesome!

If Hoyoung Lee’s concept printer becomes reality, you’ll never throw away another pencil stub or buy another ink cartridge. The pencil printer separates the wood from pencils and uses the lead to print documents. There’s even a built-in eraser component that allows you to remove text from a page and reuse the paper, so you’ll be saving money and trees.
INNOVATIVE MINDS!!! Blooming and blossoming all around! This is brilliant!
