The anthropologists decided that this tribe was to remain “uncontacted”.

This is one of the best things iv seen today

This reminds me a lot of the stories from people that went to go see if they could retrieve a couple of unfortunate fishermens’ bodies from North Sentinel Island, off the coast of India. The fishermen had washed up there, and been promptly killed by the tribe that lives there, the Sentinelese, then buried in shallow graves. Helicopters were sent to retrieve them, but were immediately shot at with arrows by the Sentinelese. The local policemen then just gave up, fearing for their lives if they were to try to recover the bodies.
 (A fun tidbit: Marco Polo steered away from this tribe, too. Basically no one has contacted these people, because they’re so hostile.)

As for the picture itself - there’s about 10 different ways that people are saying it got this way, all on personal blogs and the like, so I haven’t the foggiest how this got this way.

Vamp Attack Halloween Cake

I made a red velvet cake figuring the deep red colour is nice and vampy and perfect for Halloween. The filling added to the look in all its raspberry deliciousness oozy gruesomeness. But the best part about the vamp attack cake? Its pretty simple to decorate.

The vampire bites were made easy thanks a set of plastic costume teeth, you know the ones that make you look like your wearing a mouth guard rather than having fangs. Who knew they’d have other uses than looking dorky, pressing the fake fangs into the outer fondant layer of the cake leaves a prefect bite mark. A bit of red makes the bites stand out against the stark white of the cake, giving you a yummy Halloween centrepiece.

Vamp Attack Cake 

  1. 600 grams white fondant
  2. plastic vampire fangs

Raspberry Filling

  1. 2 cup fresh or thawed raspberries
  2. 6 tablespoons sugar
  3. 3 teaspoon cornstarch
  4. 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  5. 2 teaspoon fresh squeezed lemon juice

To make the filling-

  • Combine the raspberries, sugar, cornstarch, vanilla and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Cook, until the raspberries begin to break apart and lose their juices.
  • Press the mixture through a fine sieve to remove the majority of the pips, return the strained mixture to the pan, Stir, and cook until the filling boils and thickens (about 5 minutes). Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely. While the filling is cooling make the cakes.
  • Put 2 tablespoons of the filling aside to make the fake blood for the outside of the cake.

Red Velvet Cake

  1. 3 1/2 cups plain flour, sifted
  2. 170 grams butter, softened
  3. 2 cups sugar
  4. 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  5. 6 tablespoons red food colouring
  6. 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  7. 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  8. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  9. 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  10. 1 1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  11. 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

To make the cake-

  • Preheat your oven to 180°C. Grease and lightly flour two 8 inch cake pans, line the bottoms with baking paper circles and lightly flour the sides.
  • Add the butter and sugar to your mixer bowl, beat on medium until very light and fluffy, it will take a few minutes.
  • Add in the eggs, one at a time, beat well after each addition.
  • Stir the red food colouring, cocoa, and vanilla in a small bowl to form a paste . Add the red paste to the batter and mix well, evenly dispersing the colour.
  • Mix the salt into the buttermilk. Add a third of the buttermilk and a third of the flour to the batter, beat until just incorporated (do not over beat). Repeat with the remaining thirds.
  • Stir the vinegar and baking soda in a small bowl. Add to the batter and mix well.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl making sure all the ingredients are evenly mixed and the batter is smooth.
  • Divide the batter evenly between the two cake tins. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 1 hour. Gently remove the cakes from the tins and allow to cool completely on a wire rack. While the cakes are cooling make the vanilla frosting.

Fluffy Vanilla Frosting

  1. 200 grams unsalted butter, room temperature
  2. 3 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  3. 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  4. 1 tablespoon of milk (if necessary)

To make the frosting-

  • Beat butter with mixer on medium-high until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Switch the speed to low-medium so you don’t end up in a cloud of sugar.
  • Add the confectioners’ sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping down the side with a spatula.
  • Add the vanilla and beat frosting on high for about 3 minutes, it will get very pale and be light and airy. If the frosting is too thick beat in a little milk.

Raspberry Chocolate ‘Blood’ Sauce

  1. 2 tablespoons raspberry filling
  2. 1 tablespoon cornflour
  3. 1 teaspoon red food colouring
  4. 1 teaspoon chocolate syrup

To make the fake blood-

  • Strain the raspberry filling to make sure there are not leftover seeds. Add all ingredients to a small bowl and mix well . The Chocolate syrup will give the fake blood a bit more realistic colour. 

To Assemble the cake-

  • Trim the raised tops off each of the cakes. Cut each of the cakes into 2 even layers. ( I finally bought a cake cutting wire, its the best thing ever people! If you don’t have one I’d really recommend it, even layers every time!)
  • Spoon roughly 1/2 of a cup of the vanilla frosting into a piping bag. Place bottom layer of cake onto plate. Pipe a ring of frosting around the edge of the cake to stop the raspberry filling escaping.
  • Spoon in a third for the raspberry frosting and smooth over. Top with the next layer of cake and repeat the piping and filling, finishing with the top layer of cake.
  • Spread a thin crumb coat of vanilla frosting over the entire cake.
  • Spoon on the remaining frosting and spread in a thicker smooth layer over the entire cake.
  • Dust your work surface (I use a silicone mat) with a little cornflour and roll out the fondant to roughly 7mm thickness. 
  • Drape the rolled fondant over the cake. Smooth the fondant over the cake, starting at the top then working down the sides. Pull the fondant away from the cake sides as necessary to avoid creases forming.
  • Run the fondant smoothers over the top and around the sides to get a nice flat Finish. 
  • Trim the excess fondant from the base of the cake with a sharp knife.
  • Now for the fun part. Press fang marks all over the cake using the plastic teeth.
  • Spoon some of the raspberry chocolate ‘blood’ into a small squeesy bottle. Fill each of the teeth marks with a little fake blood. Add drips and puddles where you like.
  • To make the spray splatter look, start by placing the cake on top of newspaper to ensure you do not make a mess. Make sure you cover the wall behind too.
  • Empty most of the remaining raspberry chocolate sauce from the squeezy bottle.The little bit of sauce left the the bottle should squeeze out in a splatter. The less sauce in the bottle the finer the spray with be. Go crazy and cover the cake as much as you like.

since i already reblogged a post about mel gonzales (pictured right), i didnt want to pass by mentioning scarlett lenh (pictured left), a trans girl who won homecoming queen at her high school in colorado

link to article

tpoc YES

Being trans doesn’t or at least shouldn’t entitle you to something, you can still be trans and a shitty person or an asshole. This isn’t equal treatment, this is special treatment and quite frankly I think it’s condescending. 

Transgender people are, surprise, people — and we are entitled to the same things that cisgender people are entitled to. We are entitled to feel normal, which includes the ability to run in a meaningless popularity contest such as being homecoming king, queen, or gender-neutral royalty. We are entitled to not suffer, as trans students have in the past during homecoming when schools have purposefully misgendered students by having trans boys be put under “queen” on the voting slip et cetera. We are entitled to the same treatment that cisgender individuals receive, with the only difference that we are thankful for it — which I hope we are not someday, and I hope we are not thankful for it because it has become commonplace and something to be taken for granted. But right now? It is not common place, and it is not condescending to celebrate that trans students were (for once) not raped in a bathroom or treated like complete shit today.

tl;dr: its messed up that you think that trans students not being treated like shit is somehow “special treatment”.

So one time my dad bought a skeleton for Halloween, and one day he decided to place it in the kitchen to scare me and it went too far…

This is clever manipulation over real footage. These rides do not exist in real life, but oh man, could you imagine if they did? Just seeing it makes me queasy. Thank you angrynerdyblogger for posting it on the sixpenceee tag and bringing it to my attention. (Video)

That was the most unnerving video I’ve seen since the vid about the fake illness that turns you into metal.

How could we forget the post on metalosis maligna
