Bob Ross used to be a drill sergeant but quit because he hated having to shout at people. 

That at is why he always talked in such a calm voice.

Bob Ross is probably my favorite human being on television

The line about Bob Ross being in the military and not wanting to shout at people anymore is 100% true; and documented here.  Thank you Tumblr for getting something right.

I know people give Bob Ross shit because his techniques are generally simple or some shit but Jesus Christ he makes me feel so hopeful.

I always saw people giving him shit for his hair and the unbuttoned shirt. I saw an Einstein quote on Tumblr “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”

Bob Ross taught me, that if you leave your fear of screwing it up at the door, then you can create wonderful things!

Hey guys, my friend’s needing to do a senior project for his psych major, and needs data! It’s a survey about how people view overweight vs average weight people, and shouldn’t take much more than five minutes, if that.

Chat 12 Apr 263,599 notes What you SHOULD say to people dealing with any of these
  • Anxiety: This too shall pass, even if that sounds corny and cliche. Your anxiety will subside, you are not dying, you will not die from this, everything is going to be fine. Keep taking deep breaths, try and stay focused.
  • Depression: You are valid and your emotions are valid. You are a good, strong person, even if you don't feel like you are right now. Things DO get better, and I know you can get through this.
  • Sexual Orientation: Your body, your life, your bedroom. You choose what you do with it, and I get no say in the matter, because I am not you. I'll respect you no matter what.
  • Bipolar: The sun also rises. For all your bad days, weeks, or longer-- you also have good ones just beyond the horizon. You know better than anyone what it means to finally hit those "highs" in your life, and I hope that you just keep growing and strengthening yourself through your treatment to extend those happy moments.
  • Self harm: This is your body and I'll never pass judgement over you for the things you choose to do with it. However, you should really consider speaking with a counselor about this. Not because you're "bad", but because I just want you to be safe.
  • Eating disorders: It's okay to eat, you have permission. Eating will not make you fat, ugly, or worthless. Eating will make you strong, healthy, and lively. You deserve to eat, you deserve happiness.
  • Abuse: What they did was wrong, and you had no consenting part in it. You have no need to feel guilty or shamed, although I understand that may be exactly how you are feeling right now. They're the ones at fault here, and the ball is entirely in your court if you choose to report them for that, which you are rightfully entitled to do.
  • Suicide: Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. You are valuable and your existence is valuable. There are billions of people on this planet, and even if you think everyone hates you and no one cares, they do and they will. You can find so many friends and loved ones if you just allow yourself the time to look for them. The world turns out to be a beautiful place and you deserve to be alive to see that.
  • Sexual assault: What they did was vile and disgusting. Yes, you're now left with this horrible, traumatic event to move on from, but your life is not entirely lost. Recovery is possible, and an unfortunately large number of people have to go through that-- but they make it to the other side. So can you, you can do this. You're not dirty, you're not a "slut" or a "whore", you are a human being whose rights were violated. But you are strong, and I know you can move past this in due time.
  • Multiple Personality Disorder: I'll always love you no matter who you are. I only hope the absolute best for you during your recovery and treatment, and maybe one day I'll be so privileged as to love you as one whole.
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: The pain of suddenly reliving horrific events is almost unimaginable for me. Please try and remember that although it feels like it's real and it's happening right now, that it's not. You are okay, you are fine, and you are safe. You are in the present here and now, and that past can't manifest itself again to come and physically hurt you. Everything is just fine, these feelings will pass and you're going to be okay.
  • Schizophrenia: I am real and I can promise you that. I care. Try and find something grounding for you, an object that you can cling to to help you distinguish between whether or not you're hallucinating. You are not a freak, you are not a monster. You're a human being with rights and emotions who happens to be ill right now.

Frozen Peas from SuckUK; a fantastic piece of design as metaphor (as well as a super convenient way to make a spherical ice “cube”.

via Gizmodo

If you truly love me you will buy this for me.



Sphere basically take less energy to form because of SURFACE ENERGY. Sphere have a lower surface area to volume ratio. Because of this, ice sphere melt slower than your usual cubes. This is the reason at fancy fancy bars with those $30+ glass of bourbon or scotch may serve your drink using these instead of normal ice.

thank you nerd
