Some of you are reblogging because you think its funny that programmers would talk to ducks. I’m reblogging because I think its funny picturing a programmer explaining their code, realizing what they did when they explain the bad code, then grabbing the strangling the duck while yelling “WHY WAS THE FIX THAT SIMPLE!? AM I GOING BLIND!”
AS A PROGRAMMER I CAN TELL YOU THAT THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU FUCKING DO WE HAD TO BAN THE DUCKS FROM MY CLASSES BECAUSE EVERYONE WOULD FLIP THE DUCK OR THROW IT AT A WALL OR SOMETHING WHEN THEY FIGURED OUT THE PROBLEM IN THEIR CODE
so that’s the function of a rubber duck
Everyone thinks programmers are so smart but really we’re all just a bunch of crazy duck worshipers.
one of my favorite things is when you give a baby your finger and they hold on to it as tight as they can. it’s funny because they don’t even come close to having the amount of muscle power i do. do you really think you can hold me here haha. i’ll crush you
MYTHOLOGY MEME | [6/9] GREEK GODS & GODDESSES » DIONYSUS
Dionysus was the god of wine and winemaking, theater, ecstasy, and madness in greek mythology. He was the son of Zeus and Semele, a nymph who was killed by the overpowering presence of Zeus when Hera taunted him to appear in his true divine form to Semele. Zeus took the still unborn Dionysus and sew him into his thigh thus resulting in Dionysus to becoming “twice-born”. He is often depicted in the presence of drunken satyrs and nymphs as well as the Maenads, the human women who once a year are driven to madness by his presence. Dionysus is also often associated with Hades and is known to be the “Eater of Raw Flesh”. A popular tale featuring Dionysus is of Ariadne and the Magic Thread, in which Dionysus becomes a heroic figure of mercy as he seeks to rescue Ariadne from death at the hands of abandonment after Theseus leaves her stranded upon an island. The first greek tragedy was written in his honor, and in the old days, people devoted plays and tragedies to the wine god.
Leona Vicario (1789-1842)
Art by Tiny Tarakeet (tumblr)
A wealthy and connected young woman, Leona served as an organizer in Mexico’s independence movement. She collected intelligence, conveyed messages, and provided financial support to the rebels. Jailed twice by the royalists, Leona refused to give up the cause. She and her husband Andrés Quintana Roo spent years on the run and Leona gave birth to their first child in a cave.
Eventually, the rebels succeeded in creating an independent Mexico. Lenora and Andrés became leading figures of the new country.
Leona’s profile appears on a version of the $5 Mexican coin with the words “Bicentario de la Independencia” (“Bicentennial Anniversary of Independence”).
