Claire. 25. I post about whatever I'm watching, reading or interested in. For lovers of a good story, book design, culture, literature, television, film, art and the exchange of ideas. Et in Arcadia ego.
I have a lot of fixations, but Teen Wolf is front and center right now.
Jeremy Bentham (1748 – 1832) was an English author, jurist, philosopher, and legal and social reformer. He is best known for his advocacy of utilitarianism and animal rights, and the idea of the panopticon.
As requested in his will, Bentham’s body was dissected as part of a public anatomy lecture. Afterward, the skeleton and head were preserved and stored in a wooden cabinet called the “Auto-icon”, with the skeleton stuffed out with hay and dressed in Bentham’s clothes. Originally kept by his disciple Thomas Southwood Smith, it was acquired by University College London in 1850. It is normally kept on public display at the end of the South Cloisters in the main building of the college, but for the 100th and 150th anniversaries of the college, it was brought to the meeting of the College Council, where it was listed as “present but not voting”.
Bentham had intended the Auto-icon to incorporate his actual head, mummified to resemble its appearance in life. However, Southwood Smith’s experimental efforts at mummification, although technically successful, left the head looking distastefully macabre, with dried and darkened skin stretched tautly over the skull. The Auto-icon was therefore given a wax head, fitted with some of Bentham’s own hair. The real head was displayed in the same case as the Auto-icon for many years, but became the target of repeated student pranks. It is now locked away securely.
Ok so this is going to sound stupid as shit to most people but holy shit, when I see children/baby clothes I get so confused. Beyond reasoning. I even ask things like “why is doll clothes so expensive holy shit’ or “do children actually exist or is this clothing for gnomes?” I don’t understand. The tiny clothes, just… THE TINY CLOTHES. LOOK. IT’S A WAISTCOAT FOR A 1 YEAR OLD. WHY IS THIS SO FUNNY TO ME. It’S A TINy SuiT FOR BABIES. WHY.
Don’t try to put logic into this. I KNOW that formal wear is required for like.. weddings, church n shit. but LOOK AT THE PHOTo. LOOK AT THE TinY FULL OUTFIT. IT”sSO FUNNY tO me.
