Diogenes was the shit. He was easily one of the best philosophers ever. He made himself the least wealthy person, hence living in a “Barrel”. He also, upon seeing a child drinking from a river with his hands, smashed his only wooden bowl claiming to be “Bested by a child”. He did public stunts to make a point towards customs and norms including eating in the marketplace in Athens which was generally not acceptable. When Plato described humans as “Featherless Bipeds” he plucked a chicken and brought it to him, saying “here’s your man”. Plato changed that description to “Featherless bipeds with arms”.
And here’s where it gets real.
Diogenes the Cynic became well known all over. In fact, Alexander the great, the one man who could have anyone killed just because, went out of his way to find him. Upon meeting Diogenes, whom was laying on the ground, he said something to the extent of “Ah, the great Diogenes! Is there anything that I, Alexander the Great, can do you?”. Diogenes’ response was a crude “Yes, Get out of my sunlight.”
But, however, Alexander came back another time, to find Diogenes sifting through a pile of bones. Alex inquired “Diogenes, what are you doing sifting through that pile of bones?” Diogenes the Cynic responded “I’m trying to distinguish between the bones of your father, and that of a slave. I cannot tell the difference.” An insult that any man would want the other beheaded for indeed. But no, not Alexander.
Alexander went on to later say that if he were not Alexander the Great, he would wish to be Diogenes.
Dude’s a motherfuckingbadass.

and i almost cRIED
why do people say “don’t be a pussy” when talking about weakness more like “don’t be a man’s ego” because you know there isn’t nothing more fragile than that
because “pussy” is the shortened form of the word “pusillanimous”, which means “timid, cowardly”
and not the slang word for the female genital region?
literally no one else knows this. nobody.

So, I finished my Supernatural teapot! :D I’m very pleased with it. Thinking of throwing it up on pinterest. Just had the road test, and yep, it’s functional as well! I used a mold for the shape of the pot itself, but widened the top to fit Tiny Crowley in, and he, the paint job and the detailing are all mine.I was worried that I was going to colossally screw up all the little details on the Colt or the lettering, and that definitely took the longest to do, but aside from my Devil’s Trap being cockeyed (to the extent at which John Winchester would start grounding people and taking away their comic books, I think), there were no major flaws.
Very pleased, indeed.
The final glazing really made the colors pop (although I wish I’d gone with a darker red for the angel-repelling sigil, but they only had so many options, and, well, you know what they say about hindsight.) I almost dabbed some fake-snow-looking glaze around the top of the pot, because it resembled salt, but the woman at the Arts and Crafts center advised me that it wouldn’t make it very washable, and as I definitely want to use this teapot for the purpose God intended - to look cute and hold yummy beverages - I passed. I think it may be blinged-out enough, as is.
I won’t put it on a stovetop because I’m fairly certain it might actually shatter, but it’s more than capable of holding boiling water from my electric kettle and steeping tea - a little hot, but it’s just about a quarter of an inch thick, and the glaze, while holding fast, seems to retain the heat pretty well. It’s very shiny, which is aesthetically pleasing, and Tiny Crowley’s on there but good, though I had to reassamble him like three times during the drying process. There’s a minor drippage problem too, that I believe results from the spout being too rounded, but both that and the heat can be solved with the assistance of a dishtowel while pouring (as pictured). It doesn’t seem to overheat or hold the heat any longer than it should.
God that sounds clinical, I’ve been doing too much reporting lately.
Apparently I’ve decided to punish Crowley for his many and varied transgressions by drowning him in delicious tea over and over. Hey, he brought his cup, he walked into the trap, he knew the risks. This may be the best-protected teapot in the world. …Unless, you know. It’s a human looking to score some goji berry green tea. Then I’m defenseless.
I’ve decided to make an entire Supernatural-themed tea set based along this theme! I’m going to do four cups with Team Free Will squatting inside, four saucers with awesome ladies (so far I’m thinking Jo, Ruby 2.0, Charlie, and Meg 2.0), Gabriel chilling in a sugar bowl - where else would he be? - and a cream pitcher, but I haven’t decided who to put on there. Garth? Benny? Anna? I must ponder this further. I’m probably going to stick with the same cheerful color scheme for the rest of the set - I want forest green for Dean, a darker purple for Sam, pink for Cas (don’t judge me, his beige overcoat would look adorbs in a pink cup) and a light sort of fawn-brown for Bobby. Going to do the same detailing on those as I did for the Colt on the teapot, as well. I’m thinking Ruby’s knife on Sam’s, the Samulet on Dean’s, crossed angel blades and maybe a few small feathers on Cas’, and I haven’t decided for Bobby - his flask? Books? Big bag of salt with some spilling out, circling the teacup?
I have obviously got some srs sketching to do.
A lot of people have expressed interest in the stamps I’ve been making, so this is a present to my lovely followers.

Best. purchase. ever.
So I work for my school’s campus safety, and part of my job as dispatcher is to listen to the police scanner for police activity in the area.
They just reported that they were chasing a black ‘67 Chevy Impala.
SAM AND DEAN HAVE COME FOR ME AT LAST
