Scientists discover most relaxing tune ever
Sound therapists and Manchester band Marconi Union compiled the song. Scientists played it to 40 women and found it to be more effective at helping them relax than songs by Enya, Mozart and Coldplay.
Weightless works by using specific rhythms, tones, frequencies and intervals to relax the listener. A continuous rhythm of 60 BPM causes the brainwaves and heart rate to synchronise with the rhythm: a process known as ‘entrainment’. Low underlying bass tones relax the listener and a low whooshing sound with a trance-like quality takes the listener into an even deeper state of calm.
not to mention drinking hot drinks. steamy glasses will be the death of me
Emptying a steamy dishwasher. Pouring out a hot pan of water. Rain. Sand. Random scratches that just appear in your vision.

ok so i’ve been seeing lots of RICH-SHAMING on tumblr & i find it LITERALLY OFFENSIVE & anyone who rich shames & doesn’t acknowledge their POOR PRIVILEGE is a PIECE OF SHIT & an ASSWIPE who should GO DIE & also STEP ON A LEGO B/C THAT’S EVEN WORSE
remember: ppl don’t choose to be rich!! (๑◕︵◕๑) it’s not their fault that they have RICHNESS thrust upon them!! stop OPPRESSING rich ppl and GO DIE YOU LITERAL SHITLORDS!!
First, let’s put the actual quote, for folks who might not have seen it:
The offending paragraph
Cumberbatch is referring to the rapacious slash fiction community that has turned his chilly, acerbic, and distinctly asexual Sherlock into a lustful cock monster. “It’s always, like, one of them is tired, one comes back from work, the other is horny, a lump appears in his trousers, and then they’re at it,” he says. “It’s usually me getting it — I’m biting Watson’s dog tags.” Perhaps, I suggest, making Holmes and Watson gay is a way to remove other women from the picture. “Yes, yes,” he replies enthusiastically. “I think it’s about burgeoning sexuality in adolescence, because you don’t necessarily know how to operate that. And I think it’s a way of neutralizing the threat, so this person is sort of removed from them as somebody who could break their heart.” link
Note that “lustful cock monster” is the interviewer’s words, who also calls us “the rapacious slash fiction community”. That was not Mr Cumberbatch.
Benedict’s summary description of a typical fic is not off the mark, folks. It’s a PWP with military kink, maybe with some h/c thrown in. You know we can find plenty of those on AO3.
Next the interviewer suggests that we are female-bashing, not Mr C.
"Burgeoning sexuality in adolescence…you don’t necessarily know how to operate that." I’m 48, but I totally remember not knowing quite what to do with sexuality when I was a teen. Young people having strong feelings for celebrities or fictional characters because they are unattainable and therefore safe is certainly a theme I’ve heard about throughout my life and one that was true for me. (Thank you, Warren Beatty)
“I think it’s a way of neutralizing the threat, so this person is sort of removed from them as somebody who could break their heart.” Same theme.
Did he say our writing sucked? No. Did he say he thought everything was written by misguided teens*? No. Did he get sucked into yet another Sherlock fanfic discussion whilst trying to promote his current movie, which actors are required to do whether they are introverts or not? Yes.
Even his response to the “flowery” women was firm but gentle. He’s overwhelmed, people. He gets photographed EVERYWHERE, even trudging through the airport after a long, tiring flight. Did you see how fast and long he had to talk in the rain promoting TIG? And how he called himself “pretty” and “stupid” yet came up with cogent, differing descriptions for the movie and Mr Turing’s life, over and over and over. (He is not stupid.)
Yeah, he didn’t actually give support to us. But I don’t think he was feeling super-upbeat about anything. Did you read this part? Because it made me want to cry:
“And you can’t help but feel that you’re on show, which on good days is fine — you breeze through it, and do whatever you do as a performer and a human being to just feel relaxed and comfortable in your own skin. But we all have days when we’d rather not show our face for whatever reason — because we’re hungover, withdrawn, whatever it may be, physical or emotional. And then it’s really hard. It’s really, really hard, because you just don’t want to engage with it.” link
I think it was really pertinent that he mentioned that during this interview.
I think there is real hate out there in the world—stuff going on in St Louis, in Liberia, in Mexico, in Hong Kong—and we need to focus our “I’m offended, I’m pissed” muscles on those things instead of an actor who may not fully understand our community.
And one more thing. I’ve seen a lot of opinions flying around, both in support of and against this whole kerfaffle, and I think it’s really cool that I belong to a community that is so engaged and willing to debate this and be humorous about it (I’ve seen some great ficlets) and come together, like we did for MildredandBobbin, and I’m proud to be amongst you.
*Anyone who writes fic—misguided or not, teenage or not—is brave and creative and amazing and should keep on working at writing!
