Celebrating my 1001th post with Holmses that I love with all my heart.
In less than a year I did 1000 posts and my achievents so far are:
- One subtitled TV show
- Zero hate messages
- Some photoshop skills
- Some considerable amount of stuff translated and explained for the Soviet series
- Some followers
The not so bright side is
- Last Soviet series related post came out a half a year ago
- Incredible 0.5 posts/week speed
- Shitty gifs
- My photoshop related blog might be more popular than this one
- Dead fandom
- I’m still not a dictator
Anyhow, 1001 posts!
The last two are so depressing. Many questions are raised: Why would this fandom be dead? Where are the Russians and why don’t they love their stuff (I know why but still)? Why doesn’t the BBC fandom slowly open up to other Holmeses? Why aren’t you in position of power, yet?
The Soviet fandom is dead because not many foreigners know about the series + it’s over 30 years old and the new fandom has pretty much the same problems. Plus the Soviet one has some overly fancy subtitles that are so fancy you will question their credibility even if you haven’t heard a word in Russian before
The BBC fandom is just about BBC, they came for this show only and they want to enjoy this show only. Honestly, I really doubt that there are as many Sherlockians in general meaning as BBC fans, not many people love the stories that much to watch anything that mentions Sherlock Holmes. Let’s be real, it’s all about gay porn. I have never seen a dick so big than at that moment when I decided to check my dash with a teacher behind my back.
And holy shit it sucks so bad knowing that you can’t opress people and ban any stuff you don’t like in a whole country. Like, sometimes I want to wake up in the morning and order my over loyal guards with cyanide capsules in their teeth that I can activate in case if the betray me to put 10 random people from the street in jail forever and laugh at their cries, like why can’t I do this, is it that much to ask for? That sucks, man.
Yes, the language barrier does exist. While watching, I had my dad (who knows some Russian) sneak in and start repeating phrases he heard like a parrot. Yes, it was very funny.
While I haven’t really seen much of Old Russian Holmes (but I will! very soon), your own subtitles of the NRS do make it sometime difficult to understand (I’m not an ungrateful bitch. Just saying ok? Don’t take offense, it was a huge thing to do, in fact I only wanted to ask if I could somehow help to make them better…i’ll just stop talking now.)
And while I am quite pro the BBC Sherlock and Benedict and the gay porn (sorry but not sorry), I think that at least a small percentage would be interested, if only they’d try to understand another culture and another way of seeing things. English people, both from UK and USA are not very open to other languages and countries, probably because they speak The Language (tm) which even we both are speaking. But that makes them isolated. And in turn, that isolates us. We, the people who don’t natively speak English, also exist. We do good things. We matter.
This legitimately upsets me.
… Y’see, now, y’see, I’m looking at this, thinking, squares fit together better than circles, so, say, if you wanted a box of donuts, a full box, you could probably fit more square donuts in than circle donuts if the circumference of the circle touched the each of the corners of the square donut.
So you might end up with more donuts.
But then I also think… Does the square or round donut have a greater donut volume? Is the number of donuts better than the entire donut mass as a whole?
A round donut with radius R1 occupies the same space as a square donut with side 2R1. If the center circle of a round donut has a radius R2 and the hole of a square donut has a side 2R2, then the area of a round donut is πR12 - πr22. The area of a square donut would be then 4R12 - 4R22. This doesn’t say much, but in general and throwing numbers, a full box of square donuts has more donut per donut than a full box of round donuts.
The interesting thing is knowing exactly how much more donut per donut we have. Assuming first a small center hole (R2 = R1/4) and replacing in the proper expressions, we have a 27,6% more donut in the square one (Round: 15πR12/16 ≃ 2,94R12, square: 15R12/4 = 3,75R12). Now, assuming a large center hole (R2 = 3R1/4) we have a 27,7% more donut in the square one (Round: 7πR12/16 ≃ 1,37R12, square: 7R12/4 = 1,75R12). This tells us that, approximately, we’ll have a 27% bigger donut if it’s square than if it’s round.
tl;dr: Square donuts have a 27% more donut per donut in the same space as a round one.
god i love this site
can’t argue with science. Heretofore, I want my donuts square.
more donut per donut

I’m actually concerned for boys who complain about how different girls look without makeup. Like did you think eyeshadow permanently alters a girls eyelid? Are you frightened when people change clothes
Babies have no concept of object permanence
I didn’t get tagged but I want to do it. Sooo here it goes:
Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag [I tagged eighteen because i want to see what everyone puts there but tag as many people as you want, so I guess WHATEVER NUMBER OF] friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.
1. The outsider, Albert Camus (this is not a joke. this is THE book. this is how I live, how I think, this book is me)
2. The adventures of Captain Hateras, Jules Verne (for kids? i think not)
3. The metamorphosis, Franz Kafka
4. The desert of Tartaras, Dino Buzzati
5. Martin Eden, Jack London
6. Mind fuck, Manna Francis (it introduced me to BDSM which I love and it’s also a great sci-fi slash of the 2000, when things were calmer and yet, dangerous)
7. Our bodies, our selves (the book i wish i had when i was 12)
8. The Balad of Reading Gaol and De profundis, Oscar Wilde
9. Crime and Punishment, Fyodor Dostoevsky
10. Freedom or Death, Nikos Kazantzakis
don-gately (I should tag you? idk, i did it so…) And I tag: watson-jawn-watson, ceywoozle, people-are-fond and I guess whoever wants to do it because it’s so fun and nice to both do it yourself and read from friends!
221books replied to your post “BOOOOOOKS”
i’ve already done this like 3 times but idgaf cause boooookkkkssss
Damn right, that’s what I call a healthy reaction
whaaaat but i want to do it too!
