It’s a bit like flashcards on steroids.
When we read, our eyes move across a page or a screen to digest the words. All of that eye movement slows us down, but a new technology called Spritz claims to have figured out a way to turn us into speed-readers. By flashing words onto a single point on a screen, much like watching TV, Spritz says it will double your reading speed.
Hard to be skeptical when you see the proof right the heck there. O.o
Of course, you could miss an entire chapter simply by glancing over to see what the cat’s up to.
As a teacher I find this fascinating and intend to experiment with it on my kiddos….
If I was gonna propose to you, this is what I would use :P
Seriously, if someone used the Ravenclaw ring, I’d say yes immediately.
they’re all just so pretty oh my god
I’m in Ravenclaw and it’s a claddagh, how fitting
I’m Hufflepuff, and I more than approve of the Hufflepuff ring. WANT!
A Surprise Pride and Prejudice Engagement
(Note: This isn’t me)
See? This is a tailor-made proposal. Not some “big screen of basketball game nonsense. This person took into account his girlfriend’s pastimes and favourite things in the world, knew how close to the family she was and engineered the perfect engagement proposal, without a doubt managing to make sure this would please her (surely her mother and sisters would know).
This is how you do big gestures.

→ buffy vs the creepy angel statues that kept stalking her [btvs/dw]
"I swear those statues moved!"
Giles doesn’t quite believe her. “Buffy, statues don’t move.”
"Yes, but let’s be honest here, what are the odds of them being just statues?”
"I think I’ve figured you out." She says. It feels odd talking to stone statues, but then again they’re not really statues, are they? "You only move when I’m not looking. When I am looking, you turn into statues, isn’t that right? And I can’t kill a statue.”
She doesn’t blink.
"What would happen if I were to close my eyes?"
Needless to say those creepy statues underestimated the strength and speed of a Slayer (even with her eyes closed).
I NEED MORE BUFFY INJECTED INTO OTHER FANDOMS

Goliath from Gargoyles. You have no idea how badly I want Disney to make Gargoyles an animated feature. I’m on a personal mission to remind people how awesome this show was. You’d be surprised how many people I’ve talked to that have never heard of it. Lets start a petition or something.
Ohhhh man! Ryan’s on a roll!
How could anyone not have heard of Gargoyles? It was right up there with Batman: TAS.
Thank goodness I’m not the only one. This needs to happen.
