when someone with no real authority over you tells you to do something
I feel like I, and many other tumblr users, are pretty much experiment 625 from Lilo and Stitch
he literally has all of the same powers as stitch
He had potential to do something great. He saw what Stitch and all the other experiments were doing, but he was just like
you know what sounds good
Equius is a really underrated character, and when he is brought up it’s usually just for jokes about him needing towels or in conjunction with Nepeta.
But in reality he’s like this awesome mechanical genius who builds fully functional battle robots and working bionic arms for his friends; at the human equivalent of 13 self-taught over the internet. That’s only 13 years of experience, much of it spent as a grub or small child, no matter what your ageing headcanon, while being raised by a horse-cow-butler.
Plus he is literally the strength equivalent of Thor, his STRONGjump is literally insane.
Do you even lift?
also let me point out we’ve only just recently managed to create a prosthetic robotic arm that an deal cards and tie shoelaces
MEANWHILE EQUIUS’S ROBOT ARM FOR VRISKA WORKS LIKE A FUCKING NATURAL ARM??? AND THE FINGERS AND HAND AND WRIST TOO???
and don’t even get me started on aradiabot
Can I mention here that paralysis occurs from damage to the spinal cord. Which means that it’s not just that Tavros’s legs didn’t work, it’s that the nerves didn’t send signals to the muscles properly.
Meaning that Equius would not have just had to build him a pair of legs, but also extend wires to attach electrodes directly to his think pan. This is a thing that some of the best doctors in America have only been able to do in the last few years, with much less stable results.
Not to mention the fact that he was able to craft these things out of random shit they found on the meteor and make the sensors tiny enough that they would be completely inside his head, something humans have not done to my knowledge.
tl;dr Equius is also a professional fucking brain surgeon
equius is actually one of the best trolls if you give his character more than 0.02 seconds of thought
Lalonde’s got eyes dead like charcoal, burnt out with fires that burned brighter than any star that deigned look upon her.
Sixteen-year-old Elif Bilgin of Turkey has developed a way to replace traditional petroleum-based plastic with banana peels.
The Turkish teen took home a US$50,000 prize for her project “Go Bananas!” Thursday after winning the second annual Scientific American Science in Action Award, associated with Google Science Fair.
“My project makes it possible to use banana peels, a waste material which is thrown away almost every day, in the electrical insulation of cables,” Bilgin said in a media statement.
“This is both an extremely nature-friendly and cheap process, which has the potential to decrease the amount of pollution created due to the use of plastics, which contain petroleum derivatives.”
Bilgin spent two years developing the bio-plastic, which does not decay. She said the process is so easy that it is possible to repeat at home, with special care taken for chemicals used in the production process.
In September, the teen will compete at Google’s California headquarters for the overall Google Science Fair prize for 15-to-16 year olds. She will also have access to a one-year mentorship.
Has anyone else noticed how many brilliant breakthroughs in science are coming from the minds of teenage girls the last few years? Between this story, the four girls in Nigeria who invented a generator that runs on urine, the California girl who invented a twenty-second cell phone charger… Who knows where we’d be today without the patriarchal interference of men, stealing or hiding the brilliance of women?
Our future is in the hands of teenage girls, and I for one feel really good about that.
When I was about 7 I wanted to invent a thing that purified water based off of fish gills. I went to the school library to do research like a good little inventor and one of my teachers asked me what I was doing, and then told me that there were some new barbie books in, and that I’d probably be better off with those.
Don’t forget the girl who invented a torch that’d light up just from the heat of your hands
basically everyone should stop s***ting on teenage girls because they do awesome things when you let them
But nah, girls and women just suck at math and science and have never invented anything worthwhile. Sure. Right.
