Unusual weather in Antarctica leads to rain and a Texas-sized melt
An area larger than the state of Texas in West Antarctica melted to an unusual degree last year, with pools of the meltwater remaining on the surface for as long as 15 days. West Antarctica alone could contribute 10 feet of sea level rise, according to a 2009 paper published in Science. This area in the Ross Ice Shelf, the world’s largest chunk of floating ice, likely melted at its surface because of a particularly strong 2015–2016 El Niño event, which brought warm and moist sea air to the area, according to the study published today in Nature Communications.

1. Do not be angry at your current situations at hand. As bad as it seems, it could have prevented your life from going in a far worse direction.

2. Do not question and analyze everything, to try and figure out the “whys,” “hows,” and “what ifs?” Focus on the NOW. Focus on today. You may never know why something happened. Dwelling on it won’t change the present.

3. When all else fails, look to the relationships in your life. Cherish them, laugh with the people you love, nurture those connections.

4. If you have your health, you have everything.

5. Things heal. Everything heals. The body, mind, soul, heart. They mend.

6. An Epsom salts bath accompanied by a book, a cup of tea, and candles can change your week around.

7. So can an incredible bowl of pasta. Or a piece of cake. Or whatever comfort food you choose to enjoy.

8. Remember that if it didn’t kill you, you will only get stronger. If you are breathing, there is a plan for your life. Don’t give up.

9. I know how hard it is some mornings to get up when you are angry, upset, frustrated, sad. Get up. Eat breakfast. Move. Stretch. Pray. There is a reason you are here.

10. A hot shower followed by pajamas and getting into bed will also cure many things.

11. Whether you think you are a good singer or not, I promise you, singing will cheer you up. Dance will help as well.

12. Feeling sorry for yourself will not change anything. Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom to dig deep down and discover the strength and patience you never would have found.

13. Be positive. Be a light. Be radiant. If you can choose to still smile, lift up those around you, and lift yourself up, congratulations, your character is admirable.

14. If you need something to make you feel good, organize. Organize all of your things, get rid of the things that do not benefit you anymore, buy some new clothes, get a haircut.

15. Above all else, remember that even on the gloomiest, coldest, and darkest day, the sun still exists. It is still there. Even if we cannot see it, the sun comes out every morning. If the sun can still rise each day, so can you.

—  15 things I have learned in 2015 thus far.

Me and my friend are both getting promoted at work as asst. managers and they're gonna drug test us! We are both daily stoners and he says we need to quit, but I don't want too. Any EFFECTIVE ways I could get around the drug test and still pass?

How to pass a drug test:
Drink lots of water and exercise as much as you can. Even if that means going on a walk after work. The exact amount of water you need to drink varies. Don’t go overboard and drink gallon upon gallon of water an hour before your test, as you can develop Water Poisoning if you drink too much. Drinking around 8 glasses the morning before you go in might be enough, but a general rule of thumb is to drink until you’re pissing clear (and running to the bathroom pretty frequently), and maintaining that level by continuing to steadily drink water right up till you go in the door of the testing facility.
At this point your pee should be clear which is suspicious. Take a vitamin B pill which will turn your pee back to the yellow color. Take 50-100 mg the day before your test.
Now how long will it take? For a person of average weight allow 1-3 days for a single use (bowl or 2 with friends some night, NOT an all-night smokathon) — For “regular” use, including daily use, 5-10 days — For Chronic use, meaning multiple times per day, every day, 15-20 days.
For heavier, less-active people those numbers rise quite rapidly, up to 1-2 months for a chronic user. Smaller people will also burn it off faster.

For something not so natural, 420 Body Clean: Advanced Rapid Cleanser, works in 1-2 hours with only the drink and 20oz of water. Also the Stay Clean system works in a similar fashion.
Hope this helps! Stay lifted!

  • # 11 (Day 15) Helena Bertinelli rises to to the occasion, and becomes The Bat that Gotham needs 

In the Zero Issue of No Man’s Land, Helena finds inspiration in the totemic power of the Bat symbol, and dons it in order to become The Bat. And by doing so, she also helps bring temporary order to a city ridden with strife.

Despite the pain and mistreatment she endures, No Man’s Land would go on to become Helena’s finest hour.
