Goddamnit, just let me browse

At 19, I read a sentence that re-terraformed my head: “The level of matter in the universe has been constant since the Big Bang.”
In all the aeons we have lost nothing, we have gained nothing - not a speck, not a grain, not a breath. The universe is simply a sealed, twisting kaleidoscope that has reordered itself a trillion trillion trillion times over.
Each baby, then, is a unique collision - a cocktail, a remix - of all that has come before: made from molecules of Napoleon and stardust and comets and whale tooth; colloidal mercury and Cleopatra’s breath: and with the same darkness that is between the stars between, and inside, our own atoms.
When you know this, you suddenly see the crowded top deck of the bus, in the rain, as a miracle: this collection of people is by way of a starburst constellation. Families are bright, irregular-shaped nebulae. Finding a person you love is like galaxies colliding. We are all peculiar, unrepeatable, perambulating micro-universes - we have never been before and we will never be again. Oh God, the sheer exuberant, unlikely face of our existences. The honour of being alive. They will never be able to make you again. Don’t you dare waste a second of it thinking something better will happen when it ends. Don’t you dare.

palehorseblackdog asked: Lol CL people. I bought a 55 and a 15 together with brand new hoods and lights, new filters, gravel, live plants, choice of plecos (could have had three, only took one), fancy guppies, five bubblers with all attachments included, a ton of ornaments and decor, stands for both, a million bottles of prime, meds, food, algae and ammonia treatments, algae pellets, test kits, nets and gravel siphons, and a bunch of crap I haven't even looked at for $150.00. People are silly.

That’s kind of amazing actually. Where did you get that good of a deal??

If I have to move too far away to take my equipment, I expect to give someone a good deal like that. I just want to make sure someone takes my stuff and my animals. The money isn’t really relevant.

A couple months ago I passed by this ivy in the trash pile on the curb. I walked past but I felt sorry for it and went back. Now look!

Glenn Beck’s audacious defense against Boston Marathon bombings defamation suit

By Terrence McCoy, washingtonpost.com

On April 15 of last year, a thin kid with a bright smile named Abdul­rah­man Alhar­bi decid­ed he would stop and watch the Boston Marathon for a few min­utes. A Saudi Ara­bi­an study­ing Eng­lish in Boston, he had heard of the famous marathon, but…

Glenn Beck is an even bigger piece of shit than you thought. And if you’re like me, you thought he was a monumentally huge piece of shit.

The woman who made your Wifi working.
Hedy Lamarr was an Austrian-born American actress. Max Reinhardt called her the “most beautiful woman in Europe” due to her “strikingly dark exotic looks”.
Mathematically talented, Lamarr came up with an early technique for spread spectrum communications and frequency hopping, necessary for wireless communication from the pre-computer age to the present day.

OMG I read a BUST article on this woman like a year ago. She was SO COOL. She was like, “Damnit, no one in the government will hire me to invent shit. FINE. I WILL MARRY FELLOW INVENTOR WITH GOVERNMENT CONNECTIONS AND DO MY OWN RESEARCH. Oh shit. How am I going to pay for my own research? What can I do that doesn’t take up too much of my time and pays me lots of money? OH, I GUESS I’LL JUST BE A FAMOUS ACTRESS. IF I HAVE TO BE.”

guys i found this on the wiki page

According to Anne Hathaway, the Catwoman portrayal in 2012’s film the Dark Knight Rises is based on Hedy Lamarr.

I guess i found the topic for my next english presentation

Um, wow. Found my new hero. And here I’d only heard about her in the context of her acting. That is not okay.

the dream

Casually dropping this here because this is one of the coolest babes in history.

So last year I was telling my mom about the awesome that is Hedy Lamarr and her brilliant mathematic/scientific mind. She later was telling my gramma about her. 
My gramma got so pissed, like swearing like a sailor pissed. She was 4’9 of grey hair and fury. Why? Because, why in the hell was she only hearing about this now!

Earlier today, I saw this tweet.  
And it’s so true - we NEED a Women’s History Month. 
Because so much has been (conveniently) forgotten and/or overlooked.


There was a great piece on her on ‘The Science Show’, the national science broadcast of Australia’s Broadcast Corp. It was just a couple weeks ago.
