The “first man-made biological leaf” could enable humans to colonise space»

if you aren’t hyped about synthetic life and colonizing space then get out of my face

We fuck up one planet and then move to outer space?

lol colonising space if you aren’t hyped about stealing alien artefacts, forcing extra-terrestrials into famine while we pillage their country and setting up systems of intergalactic oppression get out of my face

like. do you guys know what colonising is. do you know history.

Humans have engineered a synthetic plant that can grow in zero gravity and make oxygen for long-distance journeys and the first thing on your minds is ~colonising space~ what

22. Kiska

She is known in the media as the “World’s Loneliest Orca.” Kiska swims in total isolation in a barren fiberglass tank in Canada. Keeping a killer whale in solitary isolation is  illegal in the United States. A former Marineland trainer who worked primarily with Kiska reported to the Toronto Star that the lonely orca is suffering from medical conditions and has an untreated injury that causes her to bleed intermittently from her tail fluke.  Since Kiska has lost all her calves and closest companion, she is often seen logging listlessly at the surface of the water but continues vocalizing. On May 31, animal activists lined the road to Marineland silently protesting Kiska’s devastating living conditions.

A Multi-Function Clip That Hides a Toolbox In Your Hair

Andrew Liszewski

A Leatherman multi-tool hanging off your belt is a great way to stay prepared for emergencies, but it means you look like someone with a Leatherman hanging off their belt—and that part’s not so great. This innocuous hair clip is a better alternative. It manages to replicate the functionality of quite a few tools, but will all but disappear when used to keep your bangs at bay.

It can serve as a flat-head screwdriver, even for fixing those tiny screws on your glasses. It’s got a 5/16 wrench for tackling the occasional bolt, and there’s a serrated edge for hacking through rope, but hopefully not hacking through your hair when worn. It could very well be the smallest multi-tool you can buy for just $10, trumped only by the Q-Tip when it comes to cost versus functionality.

We have made enormous progress in teaching everyone that racism is bad. Where we seem to have dropped the ball… is in teaching people what racism actually IS.

"Consent is sexy."

No. Consent is mandatory. Do not sexualize consent

OR do sexualize consent because there’s no such thing as sex without consent; consent is part of sex/consent is sex; sex is sexy.

Because rape is simply unsexy, right?

literally shut the fuck up

your reading comprehension sucks. 

No, it doesn’t, you’re simply talking in circles.

The act of consent and the act of sex is two different things.

Sure, knowing that someone wants you is totes awesome but the act of giving and receiving consent should not be anything but mandatory, and once we start sexualizing things like that, we end up with stupid campaigns like “consent is sexy”

Not everything has to be sexy to be palatable, you know.

I agree that “consent is sexy” is a stupid campaign that trivializes a deeply important subject. And that consent is mandatory. But I disagree that sex is separate from consent. Consent isn’t just an initial confirmation, it’s a continuous indication via body language and speech throughout sex.  

so you recognize that that campaign is stupid and trivializing for sexualizing consent, and yet you literally encouraged people in your first post to sexualize consent. incredible. either own your bullshit or stop talking.

I was being glib. But the point I was making is that consent is part of sex and it’s ok to sexualize that.

"There's no such thing as sex without consent" oh....oh....you figured it out. Rape doesn't exist! Thank you so much!!! Wow, get your head out of your ass.

You’re angry about rape on the internet but you’ve never heard the argument that there’s no such thing as nonconsensual sex because sex without consent is rape and rape is not sex?

masculinity is so funny to me bc men deprive themselves of the best things in life in order to achieve it like ….fuzzy socks, fun fruity pink drinks, spa days, lifetime movies,  expressing positive feelings in a healthy way, being a warm genuine person

That last one though.

Any internet users who use or even read about privacy services online will be targeted for surveillance by the NSA, according to a new report from German broadcaster ARD.

According to leaked source-code of the US spy agency’s ‘XKeyscore’ software, individuals who search for information about anonymising services such as Tor have their IP addresses logged by the NSA and can be flagged for further monitoring.
