Narrative from  (Haberuvi Flickr)
A couple of days ago I was driving to work on the Washington beltway and saw something up ahead shoot out of traffic and against the jersey wall median. It was black. I wondered if it was a piece of a truck tire but it looked different somehow. So I paid attention as I reached it and, lo and behold, it was a tiny cat scrambling along the jersey wall like a big black spider. I carefully pulled off, then backed up as far as I could safely. Got out of the car and walked back toward where it had been. There was a grate. Oh no. If he went down there I wouldn’t be able to do anything. But farther back there was a spot under an overpass. It wasn’t moving. I kept walking. There it was. It seemed to have found the darkest spot under the overpass and hunkered down. I picked it up and sheltered it against my body as best as I could and made my way back to the car. I did not see it thrown, but the speed and trajectory when I first saw it simply could not have been the result of self propulsion. I can only assume it was thrown. What kind of world do we live in, anyway?

This is Susan. She’s friendly and very sick. I found her today and I believe she was possibly dumped at the side of the road by someone.

I am opening up donations to fund her recovery. She’s going to need expensive vet care. From examining her myself, she’s going to need cat flu medication, flea treatment, worm treatment and ear mite treatment.
All of which will add up to an expensive vet bill that I will struggle to cover myself. I am a student and I do not have family support and am surviving on allowance I get from the government which barely feeds me, covers my cat Henry’s food or pays the rent.
Any money you give will help Susan without leaving me hungry or my rent unpaid. NONE of the money I get will go into my pocket. Extra money that is unneeded in current treatment will go towards vaccinations and eventual neutering and microchipping for Susan. Any money past that will go to The Irish Blue Cross. 
I will post progress photos after she comes back from the vet and until she is better. 
Please reblog this and donate so I can help her as soon as possible. 

Signal Boost for Susan.

The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
PHOTOGRAPHY BITCHES

A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.

These are some fun fucking facts
