in 11th grade art we had to make mythical creatures with clay but i didn’t want to do that so i made a log and added a lil worm friend on top of it but my teacher got mad and said i had to make it mythical so i added a horn to it and made it a uniworm
this is why art classes in schools suck. That is a bloody amazing log. look at the texture, the colour. The worm is incredible and the teacher is unhappy because it was supposed to be mythical? Who the fuck cares? will the teacher have their pay docked if a student makes a logworm instead of a basilisk???
This furthers the argument that school is about following instructions, not learning. That really is a great sculpture, by the way.

He did this to himself. Then looked at me with sad eyes because I was to busy laughing to help him.
Sorry for the rant. It’s just a HUMONGOUS pet peeve of mine to see crazy conspiracy theories propped up as legitimate archaeology. Like, there’s nothing wrong with not knowing how things work, or why people did the things they did. But these conspiracy theories inevitably smack of unexamined racism: They’re predicated on the assumption that brown people were not capable of independently coming up with technology, architecture, culture, whatever before white people brought it to them. And so you get things like “aliens built Machu Picchu” and “there must have been Atlantis connecting all the world’s cultures”, because of course there’s no way brown people in different areas of the world would have been smart enough to come up with this shit on their own.
The truth is cool enough. We don’t need to resort to magic or aliens or Atlantis to explain what we don’t understand.
The closer to the end the more satisfying it gets…
