Over 1500 walruses gather on the northwest coast of Alaska. Pacific walruses looking for places to rest in the absence of sea ice are coming ashore in record numbers, according to NOAA.

diy colour block clock

Like me are you in need of a quick DIY to spruce up that bare wall in your home office or room? I came across this diy clock by Molly from Almost Makes Perfect, and love the concept. I am a huge fan of colour blocking, and while you can be as wild with colours as you wish, this is a good example of a minimal blocking where texture plays a part. Personally I like the clean and simplistic option of the bare clock face and single colour against the beautiful wood grain.

Materials

• A clock kit (purchase here:)

• Wood clock base

• Acrylic paint of your choice

• Painters tape

not pictured :

• A small paint brush

• A pencil

• Sand paper

• Anything with a circular shape to trace around

Directions

Step 1: Sand your clock to get a smooth finish, then tape off half the wood with your painters tape and burnish it by smoothing with your nails.

Step 2: Using anything that has a round shape and is smaller than your clock, trace around the shape for a semi – circle, think pot lids (Molly used an old trash bin that was sized just right).

Step 3: Mix your paint with water so it’s more of a wash rather than a thick layer of paint.

Step 4: Paint the center and then carefully free hand around your circular shape. Make sure you dont have much paint on the brush when you do the edges or it’ll bleed.

Step 5: Once your paint is dry, slowly remove the tape and assemble your clock kit as instructed.

Wouldn’t these make great holiday gifts?

wow

soooooo is no one going to say ANYTHING about how this woman is full of shit?

like oh, you needed a fat suit to learn that fat people aren’t treated well? OR HOW ABOUT YOU JUST LISTEN TO THE ENDLESS STORIES FROM ACTUAL FAT WOMEN WHO COULD HAVE TOLD YOU THIS IN TWO SECONDS

you needed a fat suit to show that people don’t like when people use “fake” images …. I GET IT THAT IT’S SUPPOSEDLY STILL THE SAME PERSON but i mean, this is why i keep my pics up to date, because i don’t want to put myself through this

I’d be just as displeased if some guy showed up looking 40 when he said he was 25 (has happened), so I mean, what is this experiment proving other than “people on dating sites expect you to look like your photo, regardless of what you look like/weigh”

and you couldn’t find an actually fat woman for this entirely POINTLESS “experiment”

my body is not your fucking costume

the struggles and hardships i face from a fatphobic society don’t come off at the end of the day. I can’t unzip my oppression and slide it off

l FUCKING HATE PEOPLE WHO PUT ON FAT SUITS BECAUSE THE EXPERIMENTS THEY DO ARE ALL FALSE RESULTS

Like oh, you felt bad because some guys left you while in a fat suit? But you KNOW you get to take it off later. You KNOW this isn’t something you’ve dealt with for 20+ years, and likely won’t have to ever experience once the suit is gone. 

Wear that suit, EVERY DAY, even in the shower, for 20+ years, FROM CHILDHOOD, THEN fucking tell me what you’ve learned. Until then, get the fuck out of my face with this social experiment bullshit

reblogging for the last comment

reblogging for the comment.

I think this was a stupid experiment, and it irks me seeing it passed around as “THIS is how you do social experiments” compared to the Sam Pepper shit, BUT in response to the above comments, I think it’s important to point out—

1) This is an actress. She’s not full of shit. She’s doing what she was paid to do. She’s not the one who set all this up.

2) This was set up by Simple Pickup. These people are responsible for a lot of sexual assault “pranks” along the same lines (and worse) as Sam Pepper.

It takes a little digging or YouTube knowledge to be aware of that stuff rather than assuming the person in the video is the one responsible for it (as that’s often how online video works), but if you wanna call out this video for its idiocy, let’s do it by pointing a finger in the direction it really should be pointed in.
