Ginger of the North!

I'm really a ginger, in Canada. I love Sherlock and Benedict Cumberbatch. I have great friends and a great job. This blog is a random collection of thoughts, ideas, and stuff I'm currently obsessed with! (Note: this blog is occasionally NSFW. Ye be warned.)

Sitting in the airport, waiting for my flight

And it is crazy thunder and lightning outside right now. And all I can hear in my head is Martin Crieff talking about how these are dangerous flying conditions and that there will be no flight today.

And here they are:
Thermoception:  Ability to sense heat and cold. Thermoceptors in the brain are used for monitoring internal body temperature.
Proprioception: The sense of where your body parts are located relevant to each other. 
Chronoception: Sense of the passing of time. Your body has an internal clock. 
Equilibrioception:  The sense that allows you to keep your balance and sense body movement in terms of acceleration and directional changes. 
Magentoception:  This is the ability to detect magnetic fields. Unlike most birds, humans do not have a strong magentoception, however, experiments have demonstrated that we do tend to have some sense of magnetic fields. 
Tension Sensors:  These are found in such places as your muscles and allow the brain the ability to monitor muscle tension.
Nociception:  In a word, pain.  This was once thought to simply be the result of overloading other senses, such as “touch”, but it has it’s own unique sensory system.  There are three distinct types of pain receptors: cutaneous (skin), somatic (bones and joints), and visceral (body organs).

'John, it's beyond my knowledge how this is supposed to be sexy.'

Yup, here is the finished drawing.

The colouring process was incredible tedious, but at least I like how it turned out.

Based on this post [x] and this picture [x]. The UK Converse were my own fetish (because I really want a pair of them, unnf), so I must apologize.

Here the lineart [x]

Dedicated like I’ve said before to cumberbitchsandwich, the only culprit of my new obsession with converse and cigarette’s porn. 

Always a classic.
