ok but a slytherin student from some hoity-toity pureblood family becoming ridiculously infatuated with muggle culture
and they just approach some muggleborn gryffindor who’s immediately on guard and waiting for some kind of insult but then the pureblood pulls a fucking nokia flip phone out of their robes and says “ALRIGHT, HOW DO YOU GET THIS TO WORK. I’VE BEEN PRESSING ON THE BUTTONS FOR THE PAST HOUR AND IT HASN’T DONE ANYTHING”
(it needs to be charged)
WARNING - PLEASE READ IF YOU HAVE A PEANUT ALLERGY AND LIKE TO SHMEAR MAKEUP ON YOUR SKIN TO MAKE YOU LOOK AS FLAWLESS AS YOUR PERSONALITY
I am one such an individual, and last night I was super pumped to try this concealer. Out of curiosity I read the ingredients and saw something called arachidyl behenate.
Anything with the root “arachi” such as “arachis oil” is probably peanut related. And, sure enough, I did some research and arachidyl behenate is peanut-derived. Which is the story of how I nearly smushed a deadly food allergen into my skin.
There’s a report here from last year that seems to indicate that some food allergens are neutralized when processed for cosmetics, but I’m not sure that applies for peanuts. And at any rate, they did indicate there was still a risk of a reaction if such proteins weren’t processed properly.
Now, I’m gonna say it outright - I’m not one hundred percent sure that a heavily processed peanut-derived chemical such as arachidyl behenate will cause a reaction. I’ve worn a lot of makeup over the years without checking the ingredients, so I could have easily used a product containing it without knowing. Still, better safe than sorry.
Alternate names for peanut products (anything with the prefix “arachi-” should be considered suspect):
beer nuts, earth nuts, goobers, groundnuts, groundnut oil, hypogaeic acid, katchung oil, mandelonas
Here’s some articles on the subject:
Stay safe, guys, and please signal boost for any peanut-allergic followers you might have!

Things like this remind me how much I love poetry slams.
I fucking love it
this is how you dad.
Okay, so I have this
obsessionfascination with binaural audio (3D sound). I was very bored, so I tried to convert an existing audio file to emulate 3D sound. I think the end result sounds pretty cool. Headphones are required!
this actually sends shivers running down my spine. wow.
ITS EVEN FUNNIER WHEN YOU KNOW THAT THATS THE SHRIMP THAT KEPT CLEANING NEMO BECAUSE HE WAS FROM THE OCEAN
I just made the most inhuman noise
WHEN IT REALIZES THE PERSON IS STILL THERE AND GOES BACK TO BEING ‘DEAD’oh my god

Stop. There is a better way.
This shit is amazing, it’s fast and it’s fucking strong. You only need very little. No burning, comes off skin like it’s nothing, basically no risk, just remember to get some air.
A 2 ounce bottle is like five bucks and will last you for fucking ever. This shit should be in your cosplay emergency kit. I fucking swear by this for quick fixes and tight spots.
Go forth and costume my friends.
Word. I love hot glue and all, but when I want the job done I use Fabri-tac. ESPECIALLY with foam and armor adhered to clothing.
When white western men condemn muslim men for misogyny, they’re not doing it because they give a fuck about women, because if they did they’d start by addressing the sexism they perpetuate personally. They don’t give a fuck about women, they want an excuse to be racist.
