The Crucible of Freeman


This blog is a mix of body mod stuff, political outrage, general (often macabre) art, and occasionally other things that catch my interest. I try to provide sources for most things; feel free to message me if I make a mistake in that regard. I can be found on skype; feel free to ask me for my skype username.
I try to tag trigger warnings. If I've missed one that impacts you, let me know, and I'll make the effort to learn it. Genderqueer. Neutral pronouns for now, or I will slap your shit.



A primatologist and a baboon are walking down the street. They meet a second primatologist who says, “Hey, what are you doing with that ape?” 

The first primatologist says, “Excuse me, you should know a baboon is not an ape. He’s a type of old world monkey.” 

The second one says, “Yes, I know that, but I wasn’t talking to you.”

Just wanted to suggest: Ever since that video surfaced of Tony Abbott greeting customers at that store and the pensioner called him a "Dickhead" I've always formally referred to him as Australian PM, Tony "Dickhead" Abbott. Just seems fitting.

there are two types of crushes:

1. a casual crush, you look at them and you’re like “wow you’re pretty cute i’d like to get to know you better”

2. absolutely, undeniably head over heels oh my god are you fucking kidding me you are perfect wow i’m literally going to rethink every conversation we’ve ever had for the next 9 hours of my life please love me

there is no in between

I was wondering how long it’d take before I saw someone say something to the effect of “if you’re innocent you have nothing to hide” re: the GCSB spying on NZ digital communications. Well, I need wonder no longer, I have seen it.

It’s astonishing that people truly manage to miss the point on such a massive scale.



May have slightly lost my shit at the NZ electoral commission. 

Are they finally going to change your title?

Short answer: no.

Does anyone want to help me with a believable way that two people could end up accidentally married in modern day US? :D;;;;

Vegas. And alcohol.

…Always an option.  Unfortunately I’m constrained by the fact that they are instead running from people trying to kill them, and that it takes place in a smaller town. XD

There’s an episode of Firefly that comes to mind, but I’m not sure that it’s very relevant to modern day USA…

the really shitty thing about being told that youre smart your whole entire life is that as soon as you dont understand something you just kind of completely shut down and his this big shitty crisis because maybe youre not as smart as youve always been told 

So I got a response from the NZ Electoral Commission and they were fuckin useless, anyone up for helping me burn the organisation in question to the ground?

It is one of life’s greatest disappointments that we never get the answer to this question
