123D Catch is an I-Phone and Android App that allows you to create 3D models by taking a bunch of pictures from various directions. These models can later be 3D printed. (Website)
digitalize and print your child
You don’t understand this is such a great invention! Parents can have up to date 3d models of their children which can help aid in reporting and finding missing children. It’d work for people of all ages and could help with looking for criminals and escaped convicts if they used this instead of traditional mugshots.
It could show all special markings and tattoos that are important information, sorry I’m just excited this is great
one thing that will never not amuse me is the fact that the swedish word for bat is flappy mouse
3000 notes later and i am no longer amused by the fact that the swedish word for bat is flappy mouse
In real life, pretty much everybody reacts to tragedy differently. So why is it that every author has their pet reaction to tragedy that all their characters use? Not only is it unrealistic, but it takes away the chance for the characters’ different reactions to reveal things about themselves.
Possible reactions to tragedy (not an exhaustive list):
- Distracting oneself with mindless activities
- Distracting oneself with others’ humor
- Distracting oneself by making jokes
- Distracting oneself by reading/watching/playing stories
- Distracting oneself with hard mental work
- Distracting oneself with hard physical work
- Distracting oneself with creative endeavors
- Distracting oneself by chatting with friends about normal things
- Talking to friends about the tragedy
- Talking to authority figures about the tragedy
- Talking anonymously with strangers about the tragedy (if possible)
- Getting wrapped up in others’ problems
- Staying unusually silent
- Crying loudly
- Crying silently
- Doing everything possible not to cry
- Taking unhealthy risks
- Going for revenge against whoever one can blame
- Punching random objects
- Throwing random objects
- Lashing out against friends and family members
- Trying to prevent a similar tragedy from happening
- Eating more than usual
- Not eating
- Taking mind-altering substances
- Getting in unhealthy relationships
- Isolating oneself
- Obsessing over routine
- Numbness combined with apathy
- Numbness combined with going through one’s normal motions
- Trying to get things back the way they were
- No reaction at first but a reaction hits later in greater force
- No reaction at all. Emotions relating to the tragedy just fail to load. Note that this can happen to anybody and does not mark a character as a sociopath.
Characters can have more than one reaction at the same time, one reaction after another, or different reactions to different tragedies.

I’m pretty obsessed with this picture
During the month of September 2014, our house in Tennessee became the base camp for Tom Hiddleston’s steady transformation into Hank Williams. I’d been hired by a film company—-whose vision of shining a gritty light on the life and times of Hank Williams piqued my interest no end—-to produce the music and assist their leading man in finding his way into the heart of one of the greatest singer-songwriters of all time.
The classically trained British actor arrived in Nashville on the fourth day of the month and the very next day climbed on a tour bus bound for Michigan and the Wheatland Music Festival, his traveling companions Claudia, myself, and a four-piece band consisting of Jerry Roe, Byron House, Pat Buchannan and Steve Fishell. Just minutes before taking part in an afternoon workshop with Sarah Jarosz, whose permission I had sought first, I asked Tom if he’d like to join us onstage and sing “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” a Hank Williams song I’d heard him practicing on the bus. I was surprised when he said yes and skillfully performed the tune before what must have been 1500 people. Later that night, with my band on the main stage, and with very little urging from me, he rendered a joyful version of “Move It On Over.” Afterward, brimming with delight, he admitted, rather boyishly, that he’d never in his life performed with a band and had loved it.
On a typical day in September, I watched him sit for a wardrobe fitting, read through four hours worth of key scenes with the director and leading lady, spend another two hours with a dialect coach, and then, in order to lose the weight needed to look Hank Williams gaunt on screen, run seven wicked miles over hilly Tennessee terrain. With those chores done, he’d then commit to six more hours of singing, over and over again, a very hard to master song like ”Lovesick Blues.” And then, when he finally unlocked the mystery of yodeling the blues, hillbilly style, and was treated to a playback of his performance responded by saying “I can do it better, let me go again.” Then came a late dinner, wolfed down before giving in to a few hours sleep. After nearly a month spent collaborating with this gifted artist, I’m as respectful of the man’s work ethic as I’m mystified by his transformational skills. Without a doubt, the filmmakers chose the right actor for the job.
And, incidentally, having Ry Cooder as a duet partner on “God I’m Missing You” on the Americana Music Awards Show was pretty damned mystical as well.
ARE WE NOT GOING TO DISCUSS HOW SHE FOLDED HER HIJABS TO LOOK LIKE THE HAIR OF THE CHARACTER, THAT IS SUCH A LOVELY AND GREAT IDEA. OHMYGOD

Now you know the truth of what’s going through my mind at parties.

I can’t tell you how accurate this is
This is a really good depiction of social anxiety because it focuses on inner states rather then outward actions. As someone very good at concealing his anxiety, I appreciate it.
