1. Is there anything that I could do in a dw entry to show/hide some text once the cut has already been clicked?
I'm thinking about transcripts in particular, here; sometimes I have entries with several (long!) videos embedded, and the transcripts would make a looooooong scroll bar blockquote. If I could hide the transcripts with a click-here-to-view, that would be pretty cool.
2. New Mythbusters! Because we seem to be doing spoiler cuts now, there's some stuff about ( 8x02 Dive to Survive under this cut )
3. So, this isn't exactly related to the most recent episode of the Mythbusters, but thingswithwings
and I were talking about how Adam and Jamie just have this drive to educate people about hands-on science. And I was like "oh man, now I'm thinking about an AU where they're high school teachers." And thingswithwings
was all, "wow, Jamie would be the worst high school teacher ever, except for Adam."
I still kind of want it anyway. Jamie and Adam teach physics! Adam nearly blows up the labs! Jamie teaches kids about acceleration using bows and arrows! They meet grouchily in the teacher's lounge and snipe at each other about teaching methods! Jamie eats nutritious homemade food paste! Adam eats slurpees! That part is perhaps not an AU!
4. I get to go to vividcon this year! I am so excited about this you guys.
See, I usually have to go be in the Middle of Nowhere for most of the summer, but there was a chance that this year I would only have to go for a couple weeks, so I registered for Vividcon in the spirit of HOPE. A few weeks ago it was still "well, we'll maybe want you for two weeks at the beginning of August?" and I was distraught. But then! "We don't need you this year, only come if you really want to!" \o/ \o/ \o/
PLUS I got really sick of going every year -- Middle of Nowhere, no internet, and I came back sicker every time I went. So I'm very grateful to have the break for that reason, too; maybe it'll seem more fun next year, after this time off. And maybe by then I'll have a diagnosis, and will be able to figure out why I always seem to come back sick, so that I can do something about it. (Stress? Diet? Chemical exposure? Sleeping problems? Who knows.)
So: Vividcon road trip! I get to go to vividcon! And meet fan
! For maybe the only time in the next ten years, because this is likely to be my only summer off! *does dance of vividcon*ETA
: edited to strike the girls out of fangirls, because someone drew my attention to it as a casually and thoughtlessly gendered noun. I'm really sorry, guys! I look forward to meeting a bunch of new fans I've never met before, regardless of their gender identity.
