As awesome as this image is I can’t help but be drawn to how beautiful the background is. Look at that, the sea, the coast, um, the rocks…and, um, the sky and, ah, um, the horizon. That’s beautiful. Just beautiful.
SHARE TO SAVE TUMBLR!
- Let’s try and get 100k notes
A review by one of the folks sums it up perfectly:
“What worries me about Yahoo! buying Tumblr is how it would choose to incorporate the website into its email and homepage features. One of the reasons why Tumblr is so unique is because it’s a niche market. By adding more users who don’t fit into this niche, it would make it more difficult for communities to develop within Tumblr, and Tumblr would have to change to accommodate these new users. Tumblr as a website is not the kind that you can sign up for in a day and be on your way. It is a website crafted so that you can immediately post but must spend several weeks, sometimes even months, to build a community. With new users who would not be willing to spend time growing a community, Tumblr would have to be changed, which would alienate its current users. Those users have spent time and effort to make Tumblr what it is today, and they are the ones who spend time on the website daily. A user who is checking onto Tumblr because it’s attached to their homepage is not going to be as strong of a user nor as dedicated. By changing the website to suit this new user, you would lose the strong users while building an undedicated usership.
To any website that would think of buying Tumblr, they must understand that it is a website that cannot be changed to make it more user friendly to a casual blogger. I think that many Tumblr users would be less worried about a buy-out if they were promised that their communities and ways of using Tumblr would not be changed. No one is going to mind Yahoo! buying the website and gaining a few extra million dollars per year from the minimal advertising; what we will be upset with is if a company like Yahoo! then changes the website to increase casual users and decrease dedicated users. Yahoo! would gain nothing by losing this “cool” group of bloggers in an age group they so desperately want to reach, so they must cater to these individuals by leaving the website exactly as is.” - houseoftombombadilAs much as is does sound like a load of bullshit for someone to buy Tumblr, it’s a possibility. I Personally think it should stay independent and I hope David Karp keeps a hold of it like his own child. Or we make enough noise to where such major changes (if bought) will not happen. I would hate to see Tumblr turned into an advertising dump.We’re not a ‘hip fad group’ to be marketed to. I hate the fact that’s all we look like to businesses in the end.
reblogging again for this ^
this is…actually something worth caring about. :V check it.

A ‘cloud tsunami’ rolls over Panama City beach
“Meteorologist Dan Satterfield explains this occurrence on his blog:
Cool air offshore was very nearly at the saturation point, with a temperature near 20ºC and a dew point of about 19.5ºC. The air at this temperature can only hold a certain amount of water vapor, and how much it can hold depends heavily on the temperature. If you add more water into the air, a cloud will form, but you can also get a cloud to form by cooling the air. Drop the temperature, and it can no long hold as much water vapor, so some of it will condense out and a cloud will form.”
What would it be like? You can go absolutely nuts.
You have an unlimited budget, development time would be 12 hours but it’d be completely bug free, and you can have the most ridiculously detailed graphics, and you’ll get a PC (or console) and accessories capable of running it at 120fps with no…
Doctor Who video games are, honestly, crap. Nintendo gets a gig to make two of them, one for the DS and the other for the Wii, what happens? They’re crap. BBC releases the Adventure series online, good for what they are, free downloadable titles, but let down by the fact they’re crap. Want to know what it’s like to see the stuff that doesn’t make it into any episode ever? Here you go, now you can walk around and experience the boring bits in every single detail. But wait, the BBC spots an opportunity to make some money so they stop the Adventure series and have a developer produce Eternity Clock for the PS3. What happens? Platforming in the time vortex to reach the Doctor’s Tardis. Plus it’s crap (Help from the show’s production team aka “We asked if we could do this. They said okay. And we continued from there”).
Here’s the game: Tardis Explorer. Wander ever deeper into the Tardis to discover every single kind of room ever mentioned or shown throughout Doctor Who’s history, whether that be the TV series itself, audio plays, comics, novels or fan-made material. Glimpse the Eye of Harmony as it burns, cross paths with the past as time begins to breakdown, choose which Console Room is your home-base (do you go gothic, steampunk, fan-made, organic, sterile, renewed or mechanical?) and explore old rooms and spot references to anything and everything ever featured in Doctor Who.
It’s got to be a first-person sort of game and the corridors would be randomly generated though it would be possible to have a fast-track system to reconfigure the corridors to reach a specific room instantly rather than wandering around for hours on end whilst haunted by the sound of the Cloister Bells ringing out every so often).
Think of it as a cross between Myst, Half-Life 2 and Portal 2.
One of many favourite jokes in the movie.
