It’s a Batman kind of day.

This penguin’s situation speaks to me right now.
I finally have a family of pink tallstriders. Kevin (my Mazzranache) is quite pleased.
Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is widely regarded as the first work of science fiction. You all know the story, right? Scientist reanimates dead creature. Creature scares the living daylights out of society in general. Creature smash. A classic tale.
But, where’d she get the idea? Were there real-life Dr. Frankensteins in Mary Shelley’s time? Can we find parallels today? That’s what we’ll examine in this week’s It’s Okay To Be Smart. Of course you’ll have to watch to find out :)
But wait! That’s not all! What does Frankenstein really MEAN? What does it teach us, if anything about science and its impact on life? Is it a tale of science gone too far? Or is it something deeper, a tale about a different kind of monster? Unfortunately, most of the movie adaptations have been, shall we say, “less-than-true to the book” in this regard. But I’ve got your back. Let me know if you agree with my take on the story!
It’s science-meets-history-meets-literature this week on OKTBS, and it comes to life as soon as you hit the play button.
PS - Have you watched Frankenstein, MD from PBS Digital Studios and Pemberley Digital yet? You know, the modern retelling of Shelley’s classic story featuring young medical researcher Victoria Frankenstein and her assistant Iggy? What are you waiting for?!
This looks like it will be perfect for my thesis. Thank you for finding this, Bu. I will get to watching these videos as soon as I can.

this really cheered me up
This is, like, the most awesome thing ever. I think I need to look at this every time I’m sad and it will make me happy! :D
Stein. Without a doubt.
I love it when people draw Soul Eater characters in a Western style. I think it really fits the spirit of the manga.
An anon asked for stein using eyeliner to make the stitches on his face… This this is what I thought up. Ha~
Panel 1: Marie:I swear I put it in here
Panel 2: Marie: STEIN?! Is my eyeliner in there… Stein?
Panel 3: Stein: Just a minute Marie. (This is delicate work)
Panel 4: Marie: is that my eyeliner
Panel 5: Stein: Were married so what’s mine is yours… And yours is mine.
Panel 6: Marie: I’m telling Spirit.
Stein: please don’t
I think the anon was probably a Stein cosplayer like myself.
