the best part about the inevitable chaos caused by hussie posting the final homestuck update is going to be people who weren’t visibly homestucks coming out of the woodwork to talk about it. talking and acting as though we were homestucks all along. you wake up one morning and we all have fucking shipping grids. your phone rings and you pick up and your fucking grandma is going to talk to you about rosemary. welcome to hellstuck
Robert Sapolsky about his study of the Keekorok baboon troop from National Geographic’s Stress: Portrait of a Killer.
Thiiiiiiis, people, thiiiis!
1. Kill alpha male types
2. Achieve world peace
I’ve actually read a lot of Sapolsky’s work. He’s one of my favorite scientists in the neuro/socio world.
I just watched the documentary and there is so much more about the troop that isn’t in this photoset—not only does the troop have a culture of little aggression and greater cooperation, but any incoming jerk baboons learned within a few months that their shitty behaviour was in no way acceptable, that the troop only rewarded sociability, and they changed accordingly.
If effin’ baboons can learn this there’s pretty much no reason to believe that our only option in dealing with assholes is to just ignore their behaviour and let it continue.
there really is no excuse.
"incoming jerk baboons" hahaha
this guy is SO WORTH READING. both funny and fascinating.

Thank you! You’re giving a really different perspective on my style here, I never thought about it that way. I’m sure it’s going to stay around tho because I like making things both swirly and shiny, hahaha~~
I’ve seen a bunch of posts bragging about how tough homestucks are, and how 4chaners can’t touch them with their gore and porn.
Yet show them something like this and they’re on the floor writhing in pain.
this would make a good AU
i just thought it was something for a blood-swap au
blue-blood karkat though XD imagine!
mutant equis, BROWN BLOOD ERIDAN!
this is fucking GOLD right here!
JUGGALO TAVROS THO
I MUST DRAW IT
Nice try. You just ended up helping to create fanfics and headcannons.
I imagine Gamzee being like:
and Nepeta like:

I love how complete strangers on this website are more supportive than some people’s families. At least you’ll always be accepted here.
tags: #i'm barely around but if there's a thing this is what i thought as well #psiioniic acting like a washed off version of mituna was pretty not spot on and i don't really agree with it #eh #homestuck #paradox space
I’m really, really unfond of how the Psiioniic was portrayed in this Paradox Space update.
GOTTA AGREE WITH VIKKI ON THIS ONE GUYS……
Good, now I don’t have to make my disgruntled-about-Captors post because Vikki wrote it out perfectly for me.
Not fighting, I confess I’m glad it’s not “officially” canon as much as growup Mituna makes me giggle… but possibly a reason? The Psiioniic ‘escaped’, right? Broke out from captivity. What if that had damaged him?
Maybe not enough to fully damage his power, but what if it had damaged him in other ways? I’d really like to hear you guys because I know you have feelings about Captors as I do.
Personally I think it’s important to remember that this comic isn’t written by Hussie, but by a fan, and to be honest I think it’s just kind of lazy characterization? Before when we had nothing to go on about the Psiioniic’s personality (and I mean NOTHING besides some vague backstory), there were lots of fanartists and fanfic writers and other fans in general that had great, well thought-out characterization for the Psiioniic. They were all different but that’s what made them great. It was one of my FAVORITE things about reading/writing about the Psiioniic because you can go in a lot of different directions for that character and more or less all the ones I encountered made sense. People were working from headcanons mostly but they were logical and they backed it up with reasons. Headcanon reasons, but still REASONS.
This, though…this is just taking Mituna’s personality and slapping it on the Psiioniic and just…why? The writer obviously took the time to characterize Signless differently than both Karkat and Kankri, why is Psiioniic no different than Mituna? I mean you could be right, it could be that Psiioniic still suffered some sort of brain trauma the same way Mituna did, but even if that’s the case I still call it lazy and unimaginative. I’ve just seen great things done with Psiioniic’s character and this doesn’t live up to any of them. It’s the writer deciding not to take any chances for the sake of a joke, and not a very good joke at that.
I’M NOT TRYING TO BE CONFRONTATIONAL I’m just giving my opinion ;w; I really really love the Psiioniic so that’s definitely coloring where I’m coming from, that is all.
I thought of another thing, too…If he was -damaged- somehow, then the Condesce couldn’t use him as her ship.
I’m going to hope that this is a moment of the Psiioniic having a manic episode (I mean, Sollux has them.) And there are more facets to him than this. I’ve become fond of lots of fanon Psiioniics, as well. (Looking at you, One of Our Submarines.)

Fun is not what I have in mind but thanks.
