Forget Google Glass, Android Wear, Smartwatches or contact lenses that give you night vision. Instead let’s talk about the awesomeness that is this 17th century Chinese abacus ring. It’s wearable tech from the Qing Dynasty, perhaps the world’s oldest smart ring.
Measuring a mere 1.2 centimeter-long by 0.7 centimeter-wide, the miniature abacus is a fully functional counting tool, but it’s so tiny that using it requires an equally dainty tool, such as a pin, to manipulate the beads, which are each less than one millimeter long.

"However, this is no problem for this abacus’s primary user—the ancient Chinese lady, for she only needs to pick one from her many hairpins."

[via Fashionably Geek and Gizmodo]

oh my god ancient chinese ladies knew where it was at

There was, of course, an increase in heart attacks and traffic accidents as people panicked trying to escape the ghost deer.

A significant decline in dementors as well.

The blood of my enemies.
— When a librarian answers the heavy breather’s question, “What are you wearing?” after a long day at the reference desk. (via whenalibrarian)

Okay, so no lie

Drawing fantasyland hero girls in giant sweaters is possibly the most enjoyable past-time.

Can I get a job doing this?

So are you familiar with HEREVILLE: HOW MIRKA GOT HER SWORD ?

Oh my goodness, I just read the preview—I really like where the story is going. Witches? Dragons? Arguments about knitting? Sign me up, please.

All lost in a book.  Another image that will never make it into the mainstream media.

I love this

This makes my heart happy. I really hope it’s not posed.

Quote reblogged from The Common Librarian with 145 notes

Sexual harassment is an issue with any profession, and librarianship is no different. All of us – women, men, transgender, everyone – deserve to feel safe and secure in our places of work. These playful little comments alluding to our sexuality or what we do behind closed doors or what we wear when we’re not in the library? They can turn out to be not so playful. At the very least, they are awkward and uncomfortable. At their worst, they are dangerous. It’s harmless until it isn’t, and the line is just too easy to cross.

Enough With the “Sexy Librarian” Thing, Already | BOOK RIOT (via bookriot)

I hate being hit on at work. It is uncomfortable and exasperating. Thankfully hasn’t happened as much since I cut off a bunch of my hair, but people still make it super awkward.

My friends used to joke about sexy librarians a lot, but then I got them addicted to Welcome to Night Vale. Now they profess their fear of me as a terrifying hellbeast with magical library powers. This is infinitely preferable.

Dreamworks is doing something even Pixar hasn’t tried: A black female heroine

DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a 3D animated feature starring a black character.

GUYS THIS IS BASED ON ‘THE TRUE MEANING OF SMEKDAY’ BY ADAM REX AND I AM READING IT RIGHT NOW AND IT IS ACTUALLY REALLY AMAZING AND MY ONLY COMPLAINT IS SHE DOESN’T HAVE HER SWEET-ASS AFRO PUFFS SHE HAS IN THE ILLUSTRATIONS.
The character is Gratuity Tucci and when her planet is taken over by aliens (who also take her mom) who declare it theirs because they discovered it, she sets off on a road trip (she taught herself to drive, ‘crazygood, as good as nascar’ she says) to the human relocation area of Florida where she meets up with a Boov (one of the aliens) named J-Lo who decides to stick with her. She isn’t pleased.
I’m not done yet but oh my god, it’s really great. She also has a cat named Pig. Who joins her on the road trip. As one does.

OH MY GOD THEY’RE DOING SMEKDAY THIS COULD BE SO AWESOME OH MY GOD PLEASE DON’T EFF IT UP DREAMWORKS!!!

WHAT.
I must see this. NOW. This is one of my very favorite children’s books!
