We know many of our fans couldn’t make it to E3, where we had this adorable exclusive Blue-bandana Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley puppy. Well, good news! Now’s your chance to adopt one of these dogs for yourself~


We’re giving away FIVE of these adorable doggies to lucky winners! All you have…

Puppies like puppies and shirts. Puku wants both, mostly puppy.

Hey Shychemist. I've been following your blog for awhile and I want to bring up something that seems dated but nonetheless holds to be accurate today. I feel like the girls who consider themselves to be on the science side of tumblr to be horribly mistaken. It's statistically proven that women applicants struggle to get into stem doctorate programs, and rightfully so, they don't belong there. examples- atomic-o-licious, brainsx , adventuresinchemistry, i can't fit anymore but you get it












It doesn’t seem dated, your attitude is dated. This is the 21st century.

Women deserve to be in STEM programs just as much as men. I’d wager they deserve to succeed in the Sciences even more than men because of the sexism and misogyny they experience.

They struggle to get in because they’re the minority, and a lot of people who could admit them are sexist (regardless of gender) because of the society they grew up in. Its not through any intellectual weakness. These women are amazing and just as smart as the men in their fields.

You have no right to say these things to these amazing women, many of whom I consider to be friends.

Wow. That seems like really fucking wrong. And offensive.
And I would love to take some more time out of my day to be pissed about it.

It seems that I have a lot of fucking science to do. 
So, uh, screw that.
If anybody needs me, me and my lady bits will be getting some fucking science done.


I’m oddly excited to have been name checked by this shitty anon. Because it means that the very fact that I got into an Ivy League, top 15 science PhD program (where I fucking belong) is a giant fuck you to shitty anon. Also, shitty anons make Lewis sad. Because Lewis is a feminists science hippo.


imageBest way for me to deal with shitty nonnies who think women can’t do science? DO MORE SCIENCE!!!! MWAHAHAHA


Crap, I’m a woman biologist. I’d go get another career but I have a groundbreaking thesis on rapid evolution of reproductive isolation between seed beetle populations to finish. 

I’m not a well-known tumblr scientist…but I am a scientist all the same. And while I could probably obtain a more gender-appropriate occupation… I’m pretty content with the fact I’m an atmospheric chemist Additionally, I am also one of the few women who have managed to be selected to intern at NASA’s airborne research program. 




Do I not deserve a place in the STEM fields, anon? 

Hey ladies! Mind if some physicists join in?

At the CERN visiting the CMS part of the LHC where were were working for 8 months on both computational and experimental work:


Presenting our research at a conference on Physics of Living Systems:

And visiting the Wind Tunnel experiment after presenting our research at Max Planck Institute at a Advances in Cardiac Dynamics Workshop


Oh, me? What do I do? I try to understand why superbursts happen in neutron stars! This is important because: they shouldn’t happen but they do. And the implications could be astoundingly helpful for things like, oh I don’t know, nuclear fusion.


Oh, just me, at a conference after presenting this:


"don’t belong there"?! excuse you! 
Im not a science tumblr but i am a girl and a geologist so i kinda prove you wrong…?

In the Sorbas Basin finding fossilised bird trackways and fossilised rain drops

Using HCl to dissolve solnhofen plattenkalk (limestones) to make plastic copies of exceptional fossils  


On board the HMS Discovery, a state of the art scientific ship which anchors at the NOC (national oceanography centre Southampton)


Doing some geological mapping and fieldwork in Ingleton Yorkshire


So yeh anon, you’re wrong and very very very outdated in your opinions 

oh wow this anon thinks that women don’t belong in STEM—

better throw my archaeology B.A. in the trash, burn my thesis and stop teaching biology, chemistry and physics to the 8-12th grades.


I’ve got image 




oh I guess I should burn the cheque I got for guest lecturing in grad school too—


Sorry, no time to answer douchey anon. To busy getting paid handsomely to do research things like this


While dressed fabulously like this


Because unlike the bullshit movies would tell you, geologists don’t wear white lab coats. Something to do with all that dirt. 

I’d tell my grad school and all the funding bodies that gave me a fellowship and research grants that they were totally mistaken because girls don’t science well except OOPS ALREADY GOT MY MS IN GEOLOGY, TOO LATE. 

Well darn. Guess I better just get back to doing science instead.

Just popping in to give QR to anyone that may want Puku and/or Rocky on their Tomodachi Island. :>

I don’t even know, I’m sorry. I’ve never watched Black Butler, but out of everything I’ve seen, I think Grell looks like the character I’d like best so I wish I could be as cool as him. :>

And beautiful. X3

Although I doubt I could wield a chainsaw like him without ending up in the ER. o___o;;

My quick minute comic doodles are always so weird… Sorry… ._.

rrrr! I love this! X”3

// lol Puku, you cute. that was funny. XD Ahh yes, the Lov'Modo rank ovo. The ultimate rank of ultimate swaggie.



Ohh, I blush. >//////< keeheehee I think otherwise I would be…. 

Principal’s assistant. 

Yeah, that’s the one. :>

I’ve never been one of the super posters, almost 6,000 is all I’ve had since I began. = v=

// Eeek, I don’t think Kara or I would really want to be the Principal’s assistant…. that sounds kinda scary. Imagine, it’d be like being actually officially designated to be responsible to retrieve Kiki whenever he’d feel like running away… 

Yeah, I used to post a whole ton back in the day, and I was super active in the Hatter’s Club and the Roaring Nekos. I was rightly dubbed by my rank back then, which was “Chatterbox”. But then there was that… thing, that happened that scared me so bad I avoided the forums like the plague for like…. a long time. Months. I only just recently have begun creeping back. OvO But I guess it’s kinda different now, because I’m a much different person than I was. 

I still can’t imagine having half the time some people on there seem to have. 

Yeah, I don’t want to be her assistant either. o__o

I guess it makes sense in a way that means I assist the admin. If we were talking character positions. XD
