What is a flotation tank?

500 kg of Epsom salts are added to 1000 litres of water, creating a 30 cm deep solution, which is heated to 35.5 degrees C (skin temperature).

The temperature of the water means that once you are settled in the tank, it is virtually impossible to distinguish between parts of the body that are in contact with the water, and those that aren’t, in effect “fooling” the brain into believing that the person is floating in mid-air.

Hmmm, Lassiter from Psych? Kate Beckett? Spencer Reid? I wanna guess one of the CSI guys but I couldn’t pin down which…

Yup, the one CSI guy was guessed! And I AM SO ANGRY I DIDN’T PUT DOWN LASSIE. But I do adore Lassie. He’s practically on the list.

Asker starspunade Asks:
Some wild-ass guesses but Spencer Reid and Bayonetta. And... Gil Grissom maybe? HMM. PROBABLY GREG SANDERS TOO.

Got two of them! Grissom and Bayonetta. I do adore Reid though.

Newt Geiszler & Zaphod XD

I am too predictable. The others aren’t so easy, I swear. (Using your format ‘cause it was tidy.)

Waiting for hetamushitama to come in and sweep some of this list. ;)

And now I’m laughing that Newt is the only movie character. I am not as big on movies nowadays I guess.

To enjoy any entertainment (book, movie, video game, tv show) I have to feel connected to the characters. That feeling of closeness lets me get lost in fictional worlds.


It makes me sad that people who have only seen the movie will never know why the bowl of petunias only thought “Oh no, not again” as it fell to its destruction.


Prentiss’ Reactions to Reid

"It’s okay. It’s what we call ‘the Reid effect’. Happens with children too."

(via the-oxford-english-fangeek)

Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is one of those things that’s so perfect in my head that it’s horrendously difficult to make art for. Like I’m going to ruin it if I do.

I’ve made a LITTLE art for it, and then movie!Zaphod directly inspired Altra, but MAN, there should be as much art done for H2G2 as I’ve done for PacRim and there just isn’t. Because it’s HARD. I mean, I guess the comic that will be featuring Altra is a bit of a love letter for H2G2 because the way that ‘verse is put together is inspiring a lot of the world building my husband and I are doing, so… that’s good?
