1. Coloured people don’t like Little Black Sambo. Burn it. White people don’t feel good about Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Burn it. Someone’s written a book on tobacco and cancer of the lungs? The cigarette people are weeping? Burn the book.

Doodle by bored medieval school boy
This 15th-century doodle is found in the lower margin of a manuscript containing Juvenal’s Satires. This classical text was a popular device to teach young students - kids - morals. The medieval teacher Alexander Nequam stated: “Let the student read the satirists […] so that he may learn even in his younger days that vices are to be shunned” (quote here). Spoken like a true optimist, because this page shows what young school boys like to do with rules: disobey them. And so in stead of studying the student who used this book drew a funny doodle in the lower margin: a figure with a flower in one hand and what appears to be a pipe in the other. Could it be his teacher? Doodles are of all ages but those produced by bored school kids are the most entertaining.
Pic: Carpentras, Bibliothèque municipale, MS 368 (here). Here is another example of school kids doodling.

Such a great tumblr, follow and you are bound to enjoy these discoveries

  3. hiveworks plz
these seven distinct comics look almost completely identical from the perspective offered by these ads. come on people! think outside the available possibilities! there are tonnes of cool stylistic ways to represent your comics!
these ads are all basically saying “oh look it’s a female character’s face close up, and she is somehow aware of the viewer. clicking on the ad will bring you closer to the female character’s heart.”

EDIT: I have been informed that this particular selection was not hiveworks comics. I went back and checked and while this is true, there are other comics in the list this was a selection from, and they had the same issue, and were also hiveworks comics. So i’m going to let this stand.

    People have written a lot of touchy-feely pieces on this subject but I thought I’d get right to the heart of the matter

    I just realized I never put this online anywhere.  This is a little Knuckles comic I did for a zine that some friends of mine put together for SPX last year.  It’s nothing like the last Sonic comics I did.  Fewer jokes, and just generally more of a cute little Knuckles moment.  But I hope you like it anyway~

    i love every inch of this

    In response to this post.

    Before I say any more i would like to apologize to my few followers and to say that i won’t post anything more like this if i can help it for a long long time.

    This is a huge, brutal mess, but a lot of it is the fault of Egypt and Hamas. Israel is busting its butt trying to handle this situation, and you are going to start hating on some random people just because they are trying to relieve their chronic depression and stress by taking ironic selfies while hiding from rockets that have fallen day and night for the past 13 years.

    Sure. You won’t believe me. So here are some statz.
