oh my god I love fat birds
and I love you!! :D
A collection of things that I've stumbled upon during my many hours as an Internet desktop traveller.
“There is more, another study found that “alphabetic name ordering on multi-authored academic papers… is to the advantage of people whose last name initials are placed early in the alphabet.” This means that if your last name is Anderson, you would have, on average, published more articles and had a more successful career than if your name is Zimmerman.”
At university, I was told that some fields authors are listed in order of contribution/involvement rather than by last name initials. Thus, you can have authors cited as “Zanders and Johansson (2014)”. We used to occationally have main or head authors for our projects and that person’s name was listed first followed by the additional project member’s names listed alphabetically on the project reports.
When cited, at least when using the Harvard System, the first named author can be percieved as singled out as a main author if there are more than two or three authors - e.g. “Andersson et al. (2014)”. One of my professors said this can be a big dis-/advantage when counting number of citations for an author in, for example, a database as those citations will often only count for the head author. In such cases, having a last name with initials placed early in the alphabet can be a huge advantage as far as writing credits goes.
Assume a group of studens; Aaronsson, Bokgren, Cedervik and Danielsson, write their first published article together. There is no head writer so their names are listed alphabetically. A search counting citations for each author could, depending on the database, attribute Aaronsson a much higher number of citations compared to the other authors by counting only the “Aaronsson et al.” citations to Aaronsson’s number of citations rather than for all four authors. Looking at the citations per author rather than citations for the article itself, you could easily be led to believe that Aaronsson has written a larger amount of articles than the other three authors, even if all of the citations are for their jointly penned article only.
Additionally, as the source states, Aaronsson’s last name initial could mean benifiting from higher visibility and reputation and in some cases also from assumed responsibility/authority.
Women’s Modern Assassin Armor.
This is the denim Modern Assassin Armor, women’s style, in black/red. This particular version is intended for use as costuming in Assassin’s Creed: Artefact 2 as well, for the 2nd of the 3 main characters.
Since the characters will be active in martial arts and acrobatic stunts, we designed special gussets for increased range of motion in the arms.
I don’t even play these games and I want this

African American flappers and Jazz Age women
HOLY SHIT I HAVE NEVER SEEN BLACK FLAPPERS BEFORE!
There were many fabulous African American flappers. No wonder - it was African American musicians who put the Jazz in “The Jazz Age”! The Charleston dance iteself, which so epitomizes the era, made its debut in the all-Black musical “Runnin’ Wild”, and no one danced that flapper number better than Josephine Baker…save possibly for fellow Black artist Florence Mills, who claimed credit for inventing it (she said she debuted it in her “Plantation Revue” in the early 20s, developing it from a dance popular among slaves). The Charleston song was written by Black composer James P Johnson. Without women and girls like those above, the 1920s would never have roared.
