I relate to Carlos the Scientist on a spiritual level tbh.
A woman ran at our car, screaming, a few of the shadow people chasing her. But, before I could even touch the brake, she must have changed her mind, because she had already turned into a shadow person herself.
It’s like, ugh, run from the shadow people or become one— make up your mind, lady.

Lavoisier is having none of your shit.
Heeeey so fun fact: the woman in that painting is Lavoisier’s wife, Marie-Anne Pierrette Paulze, who not only acted as Lavoisier’s lab assistant but also translated English and Latin texts into French so he could read them. But she didn’t just translate, she pointed out errors in the chemistry in some of the texts. Her observations of these errors convinced Lavoisier to study combustion, which led to his discovery of oxygen. She was also critical to the publication of Lavoisier’s Elementary Treatise on Chemistry in 1789. She kept strict records of every experiment they conducted together and drew detailed diagrams of all their equipment. She also threw amazing parties and invited all the brightest minds in science so her husband could pick their brains. After Lavoisier was guillotined she secured all of his notebooks and equipment for posterity.
In short: NOBODY KICKS MADAME LAVOISIER OUT OF THE LAB.
Also, a side note: My historian husband-to-be pointed some things out to me about this painting. Notice that Madame Lavoisier is looking at the viewer, and all the light is on her, while Lavoisier himself is physically smaller than her, in shadow, and looking up to her in reverence. This isn’t a candid photograph- all of these choices are deliberate. The painting isn’t of Lavoisier- Madame Lavoisier is meant to be the central subject.
I can just imagine Lavoisier telling all his colleagues that his wife is really the one with all the clever ideas, and them patting him on the back and telling him he’s sweet for saying so.
I LOVE IT
its a golden rule in gravity falls
Some people on tumblr act all entitled to privacy on a public site..
are you saying that because someone is in a public area, they’re not entitled to privacy even if they request it?
like??? do you understand what consideration is?? if someone is outside crying and you harass them with questions because “they’re in a public space” and they just want to be left alone, that’s cool according to you?
if someone two people are having a conversation at a cafe somewhere and you just join in because you wanna give your 2 cents because you’re in a public setting and they don’t want you to stick around, that’s fine?
you understand what harassment is? being in a public setting doesn’t null harassment and doesn’t invite anyone to join in private interactions. you should learn to be considerate of other people’s privacy in whichever setting.
