Misuse of the term “cracker”

lindamiller1025:

I’ve seen a lot of PoC using the term “stale cracker” to refer to stupid white people. Like “cracker” was given to us for our resemblance to Saltines or something.
History lesson: the term “cracker” originates from the sound the whip made when slaves were beaten.
Y’all claim to be soooo up on your culture, you don’t even know where your racist epithets come from.
You’re welcome.

HAHAH that’s why I’m okay with being called a cracker, just an insult to whoever is seriously calling me it. If someone is using it in a joking manner then I don’t consider it an insult on anyone.

That fucking amazing moment in life when your math teacher makes you relate volume to doctor who.

I would put an extra credit part in:
*EXTRA CREDIT* what is the size on the inside?
and whoever puts “infinite” gets the points 

You missed. [x]

Anonymous asked you:

Could you make a gif set of all the different variations of the TARDIS? I know it may take up more than the space Tumblr gives you but I would love to be able to see all the TARDISes from 1 all the way to 12. Thank you!!

——————————————————————————-

There have been five basic TARDIS shell designs on television in the past fifty years.

(GIFs 1, 2 and 3) The original Hartnell TARDIS was designed by Peter Brachacki and used for the first fourteen years, undergoing various modifications and repairs throughout the Hartnell, Troughton, Pertwee and early Baker eras.

(GIFs 4 and 5) For Tom Baker’s seasons 14, 15, 16 and 17 (The Masque of Mandragora until The Horns of Nimon) a new TARDIS exterior was designed by Barry Newbery to replace the seriously fatigued original. Towards the end of it’s life it lost it’s white roof lamp and a repair was carried out using a standard modern (for the 1970s) rotating blue police beacon.

(GIFs 6 and 7) For Tom Baker’s last season, right through to the end of the run of the classic series (Sylvester McCoy’s Survival) an exterior designed by Tom Yardley-Jones was used. Two identical fiberglass props were made - all previous props were fabricated predominantly out of wood.

(GIF 8) The Paul McGann movie TARDIS was the work of designer Richard Hudolin, and was rather lovely.

(GIFs 9 and 10) Most recently, Colin Richmond created the new TARDIS exterior for the 2005 relaunch. The design underwent some moderate tweaks for the Matt Smith era.

The Mind Robber has a great page covering this subject in much greater detail here:The History of the TARDIS Prop.

I will always remember when the Doctor was me.

He’s just high in the second gif.
