Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906 – January 1, 1992) was an American computer scientist and United States Navy officer. A pioneer in the field, she was one of the first programmers of the Harvard Mark I computer, and developed the first compiler for a computer programming language.She conceptualized the idea of machine-independent programming languages, which led to the development of COBOL, one of the first modern programming languages. She is credited with popularizing the term “debugging” for fixing computer glitches (motivated by an actual moth removed from the computer). Because of the breadth of her accomplishments and her naval rank, she is sometimes referred to as “Amazing Grace.” The U.S. Navy destroyer USS Hopper (DDG-70) was named for her, as was the Cray XE6 “Hopper” supercomputer at NERSC.

Please tag the artist if you know who drew/painted the wonderful masterpiece. In my opinion it is just that. It calms my mind and silences my fears for an instant. Only an instant, but a result from madness nonetheless. That is true art. To calm the madness or to infuriate/unsettle the stagnant mind. #Artistic #Art #Calm #Peace #Microsecond #Masterpiece

This stresses me the hell out. I’m very pro-nursing, but I’m also very pro-what’s best for the family. And, for a microsecond, I thought I was going to be able to escape the nursing judgment since I will not be birthing anyone. I don’t want to feel like I owe this long-winded explanation to every woman who looks at me askance when I produce a bottle from a diaper bag.

(Sidebar: my good friend wrote this post, and I really don’t think she’s going to be judging my choices, but there’s a whole world of women out there who will, just by looking, without even wondering what our circumstances are.)

This amazingly unfortunate screen capture of @jaredleto from last week’s #intothewildonvyrt that I unfortunately happened to amazingly catch is being used right now as a surrogate for my right now real wish: that I make my late train home from work…despite him serving up accidental Derp Realness in this microsecond that will live on forever on my IG page, I’m sure his wish was for only gorgeously-good things: world peace, health & happiness for his loved ones, meeting his mr big, preserving the planet and all its lovely things, etc. But tonite, right now, it’s for me & my train. The End. #imaterribleperson #jaredleto #wishes #jaredletosaveme #ihatecommuting #lovehimbeyond #heisbeautifulinsideandout #exceptnotsomuchoutwardlyinthisscreenshot #derpface #poorbabydoll #forgivemeleto

This guy on TF2 was yelling at our Medics cause they were healing him while he was playing Spy so they stopped healing him.

Then he switched and yelled at them again for not healing him, then he switched to the other team…

Until we were about to capture the point, when he switched back, demanded we give him free kills and not cap, and then call the server “the worst ever” when we capped anyway because we had two Scouts on the point and a microsecond to react to his demands.

Just a little weight off my shoulders

Guys, I seriously had the biggest breakthrough moment.

I’ve always suffered from depression since about 7th grade year up until this point (I’m a senior in high school). Every day got worse, the thoughts got worse, except for every now and then when I distracted them with physical pain…. And then (8t grade/freshman yr-beginning of junior yr) fagnugget came along and made my depression skyrocket.

I was scrolling through twitter earlier and I came across this poem of this girl talking about how her boyfriend sends her flowers the day after an argument. But except the argument turned to abuse and the last set of flowers she received was at her funeral. 

Within microseconds of reading the last words, I had instant flashbacks of the worst relationship I was ever in. Stuff I barely remembered because I was too drunk, was refreshed. For a split second it felt like I was back in those situations, and I broke down and ended up having the biggest panic attack I’ve ever experienced.

~I know some of you are reading this like “that’s dumb, why would you freak out over a past relationship?”. I know, I understand it’s in the past. But it was the biggest emotional influence from my past. I let him physically, mentally and emotionally abuse me for three and a half years, because I loved him and honest to God believed I deserved it. I would never share any of the horrid things he did/said but let me tell you what, that shit was terrifying. Don’t let not understanding stop you from helping someone, because I promise there is someone that you at least see daily that is getting physically/mentally/emotionally abused.~

In the middle of freaking out and not being able to breathe, something came out of me. Not physically but mentally/emotionally. I started to talk myself into calming down, and reminding myself that it was in the past, he’s nowhere near me and that I was okay. It took me a solid hour to actually get myself to calm down and catch my breath. 

Then it hit me. I’ve been holding the biggest grudge against him, every chance I got I talked down upon him. I wanted to light him on fire and feed him to a tank of diseased sharks. In that moment, I chose to let go of all of the anger and hatred. As much as he hurt me in the past, I’m able to make peace with it…. And I heard about how shitty he’s doing and his new girlfriend looks like a 5 year old boy. So, I’m pretty sure karma will get on his ass sooner or later. 

I’m just proud of myself for talking myself out of what could’ve been a really bad, emotional night and made it into something beautiful. I was being rushed with so many emotions that didn’t help my depression, I could feel it escalating very rapidly. I took control, and told myself that I wasn’t allowing my depression to take over and have that situation escalate (with how sensitive it’s been this year, it would have). I was able to let go of the biggest weight bringing me down, it’s so freeing, I can finally breathe. 


To any of you who need someone to talk to about depression or abuse, my inbox is always open and I’m always willing to listen and help.

I would have cried, had I the appropriate ducts. The battle was going poorly; my colleagues were scientists and maintenance staff, not soldiers. They were selling their lives dearly, nonetheless: we had the technological advantage, for all the good it was doing us.

The report in my hand spelled out our doom. In a microsecond I requested and was granted a personal audience with Dr. Singh, the…

Inconceivably different, for at least four reasons. The first is that the probable cause of the Moon was that it was smashed off the Earth in its infancy by a Mars-sized rock called Theia. That impact gave the Earth its 22 degree tilt, which is the underlying cause of the seasons. The Moon also acts as a stabiliser, without which the Earth would wobble much more over its orbit. Second is that the Moon causes the tides, and a huge proportion of life is dependent on coastal zones; absence of tides would disrupt food chains unimaginably. Third is that the Moon provides light at night for nocturnal creatures that are adapted to operate in low light, which make up a huge proportion of animals. With light only from the stars, these creatures would probably have not evolved. And finally, the Moon has slowed down the rotation of the Earth by a few microseconds per year, which has built up over time to give us the current 24 hour day, and made the Earth rounder. Without the moon, day would be more like eight hours, and we would have a bigger equatorial bulge.
So a moonless Earth would have no seasons, no tides but a lot of wobble, a fat middle, very short days and no owls, bats or moths.
