Serve me all beverages in a beaker so that when people ask what I’m drinking I can say “science”
I just want to be slightly drunk, half naked, and completely on top of someone.

i put this on in my car and it changed my life
My world just changed dramatically. This version is the best to listen to driving at night.
I just died and went to heaven.
oh my fuck
This is amazing
This is the greatest thing my ears have ever experienced wow
The world is most beautiful at 4 AM because people are asleep and nature is wide awake.
Don’t tell me what they said about me, tell me why they were so comfortable to say it around you
damn. that’s some real shit right there.
HAVE YOU EVER JUST REALLY WANTED TO KISS SOMEONE BUT YOU CANT
I SAID THIS TO SOMEONE TODAY AND HE TOLD ME “WELL WHATS STOPPING YOU?” AND IT REALLY CHANGED MY LIFE SO I KISSED HIM AND HE KISSED ME BACK AND KISSED ME AGAIN AND AGAIN AND I FELT LIKE I WAS IN A MOVIE.
This was really fucking cute
There are two people you’ll meet in your life. One will run a finger down the index of who you are and jump straight to the parts of you that peak their interest. The other will take his or her time reading through every one of your chapters and maybe fold corners of you that inspired them most. You will meet these two people; it is a given. It is the third that you’ll never see coming. That one person who not only finishes your sentences, but keeps the book.
I almost cried when I read this
i hate when i’m too comfortable around someone because then my brain thinks its ok to act weird but even then i end up being too weird
have a gif of Simon doing the death wiggle <3
Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year.
When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.
But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)
At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.
Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”
Amen to that, Hugh.
I’m gonna cry this makes me happy THIS MAKES ME SO FREAKING HAPPY
she lost part of her leg and she is STILL dancing and somebody decided they wanted to make that a thing that is possible for dancers in that situation and I love humanity sometimes I really do, this is beautiful
“It’s not well appreciated, but over half of the world’s population suffers from some form of cognitive, emotional, sensory or motor condition, and because of poor technology, too often, conditions result in disability and a poorer quality of life. Basic levels of physiological function should be a part of our human rights. Every person should have the right to live life without disability if they so choose — the right to live life without severe depression; the right to see a loved one in the case of seeing impaired; or the right to walk or to dance, in the case of limb paralysis or limb amputation. As a society, we can achieve these human rights if we accept the proposition that humans are not disabled. A person can never be broken. Our built environment, our technologies, are broken and disabled. We the people need not accept our limitations, but can transcend disability through technological innovation. Indeed, through fundamental advances in bionics in this century, we will set the technological foundation for an enhanced human experience, and we will end disability.”
“Bionics is not only about making people stronger and faster. Our expression, our humanity can be embedded into electromechanics.”
“It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”
In 1979, when the minimum wage was $2.90, a hard-working student with a minimum-wage job could earn enough in one day (8.44 hours) to pay for one academic credit hour. If a standard course load for one semester consisted of maybe 12 credit hours, the semester’s tuition could be covered by just over two weeks of full-time minimum wage work—or a month of part-time work. A summer spent scooping ice cream or flipping burgers could pay for an MSU education. The cost of an MSU credit hour has multiplied since 1979. So has the federal minimum wage. But today, it takes 60 hours of minimum-wage work to pay off a single credit hour, which was priced at $428.75 for the fall semester.
As the article points out, this is before you take into consideration the cost of living, transportation, health care, or any other costs.
I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.
firmly, firmlybelieve in them. (via theriverjordyn)
