Giving And Getting 

wow yeah let’s stop donating to breast cancer and donate more to heart disease which is way more preventable but people are just too ignorant to understand that unhealthy diets and smoking leads to it :-)

This chart doesn’t advocate stopping donations toward breast cancer but rather the imbalance in funds/deaths.  In addition to that, there isn’t a breakdown of how those funds are used (awareness campaigns vs. research).
It’s somewhat insulting that you characterize heart disease as something that is “way more preventable” when even a short glance at something like wikipedia shows a breakdown of how heart disease isn’t just one thing.
Of course if people eat properly and don’t smoke they’ll not have heart problems?
It’s nice to think that we could prevent all cases - but no, we can’t.  People are born with heart defects that will affect them their entire lives and others will be subjected to air pollution which is outside of their control (I guess they could move out of cities?).  Some people will just age and become more at risk of heart attacks due to stress.
It is nice to think that everyone can just change their diet on a whim or just one day say “I’m going to stop smoking now” but no.  Diet could be related to what kind of finances they have and smoking is an addiction.
People are able to donate to whatever causes they want - but don’t tongue-in-cheek say that one disease is more preventable then another.

Boyfriend tastes a new kind of greek yogurt with fruit on the side.  To share this with me he links an image from the company’s site.

Of course it’s the ad with the random muscular man (instead of one of the other more typical banners) which made me think I had clicked on something video game related by accident.

I don’t get it.  Why is he there? I can’t find him anywhere else associated with the brand. (yes, I figure he is supposed to “look greek”, but really)

The Marquis of Athlum

This is my first attempt at art nouveau, featuring my favourite young lord, David Nassau. I’m including a close up of the centre filigree on the Gae Bolg because I drew it… and then covered it
