Illuminati

The Illuminati (plural of Latin illuminatus, “enlightened”) is a name given to several groups, both real and fictitious. Historically, the name refers to the Bavarian Illuminati, an Enlightenment-era secret society founded on May 1, 1776. The society’s goals were to oppose superstitionprejudice, religious influence over public life and abuses of state power, and to support women’s education and gender equality

It’s all about power.

Grabbing it. Keeping it.

Using it

Power is our currency,our DNA, our god.

We control the world, we provide the blueprint, and we give the instructions.

We’re the people in grainy photos on grassy knolls.

With the shadowy faces, and smoky back rooms, and darkened boardrooms.

We’re right here, hiding in plain sight, buying and selling favours, blackmail trees and deceit, these are our stock in trade. 

We work the magic at the drunken evenings with senators and chiefs of staff.  

We shake down demons and negotiate with sorcerers.

We have stocks in Hell, and compromising photos of Angels.

We use any means necessary, regardless of the cost.

Because the world is a bad place, and you can either do or get done.

We are the Illuminati, 

and we are not done.

New superhero comic, Spark!

Hey, everyone! This is the creator of Little Girls Are Better At Designing Superheroes Than You, here with a post I thought you all might like. Writer Ted Anderson and I have made a pitch for a superhero comic!

The comic is about nine-year-old Lucia Marquez-Miller, who loves engineering, and uses her telekinetic powers to build and take things apart with her mind. She calls this power her spark!

As Spark, the world’s youngest superhero, she’s a junior member of a superhero team while also trying to live a normal life. Can Lucia juggle her friends and family while also saving the world from supervillains?

We’re posting a 15-page standalone comic here on tumblr to give readers an idea of what the book would be like.

Please reblog or like if you feel a teacher’s negative behaviour towards you has ever brought your grade down or caused you to lose interest in a class.

This would really help me with a research project I’m starting.

ABSO-FUCKING-LUTELY.

Overheard in the bookshop…

Customer: I’ve always wondered why God was called Harold.
Customer’s friend: Was he? I thought he was just called God.
Customer: No. In the Lord’s prayer, he’s called Harold.
Customer’s friend: …I don’t think that’s right.
Customer: Yes it is; it goes: “Dear Heavenly father, who art in Heaven. Harold be thy name.”
Customer’s friend: …Isn’t it ‘hallowed be thy name’?
Customer: I’m pretty sure it’s Harold.
Customer’s friend: Oh.
Customer: Let’s ask the bookseller, she’ll know.

do you think impressionists ever imitate people they find sexually attractive  when they masturbate and essentially sweet talk/ dirty talk to themselves?

Okay, so for like a full minute I thought you meant like the Impressionist movement. So I’m picturing Manet pretending to be Monet and that gets his rocks off. I hate being an artist.

More monet, more problems.

I JUST LOVE THE FACT THAT THE SUBMARINE HAS A MANUAL WINDOW CRANK

I love the fact that it’s the 21st century and we still use that as a pantomime for raising/lowering a car window. I mean, if he had tried to make a similar gesture for power windows, no one would have understood what he was doing.
