Crazy Ideas That Are Borderline Genius [via]

Jumping conflict leaps from one level of intensity to another without adequate motivation or transitional stages. A character, say, might react with hatred and vehemence when annoyance would be more appropriate. Jumping conflict is commonly seen in cheap melodramas. Characters are tender and loving one moment, raging the next, then forgiving, and on and on. The reader gets dizzy. It’s possible, of course, to have an emergency in which the characters jump from one emotional state to another quickly. If Godzilla steps on your character’s living room unexpectedly, the conflict might jump considerably. Jumping conflict is a fault when the jump — the rapid change in a character’s emotional state — is not justified by the situation.

“What if the cure for cancer is trapped inside the mind of the baby you’re considering aborting?”

what if the cure for cancer would have eventually developed inside the mind of a teenage girl who made a mistake and was forced to drop out of school and never receive an education in order to raise a child she did not want.

“hey I got an idea let’s cure cancer by making a shit ton of babies and seeing which one of them figures it out”

A man was found murdered on Sunday morning. His wife then called the police, and the police questioned the wife and staff and got these alibis: the wife claims she was asleep, the cook was cooking breakfast, the gardener was picking vegetables, the maid was getting the mail and the butler was cleaning the closet. The police instantly arrested the murderer. Who did it?

App of the Day: Icelanders Can Bump Phones to Make Sure They Aren’t Related Before Sex
Are you terrified of love stories in Greek mythology? If you ever need to do a background check on your date to make sure he or she is not your distant cousin, well, there’s an app for that. Software engineers in Iceland have scraped publicly available genealogy data to create ÍslendigaApp, a mobile Android app which allows its users to bump their phones together to check if they are blood-related before making any traumatic mistake. When a match is too close, the device will sound off an “inc*st alarm,” notifying the two users that they should probably keep their clothes on.

#is this a… common problem in iceland?

Friendly reminder to have breaks when tumbling

be safe kids

I literally waited for it to turn before reblogging.

Did anyone else get a little excited to keep tumbling when the light turned yellow

I waited for the light to turn green before I kept on blogging.
