Albert Einstein (whose birthday we celebrate today) once said:

“I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.”

What are you curious about? Is there’s something you’ve always wanted to know? Or a question that just popped into your head? We pledge to use science (and animation, and art, and music) to answer it. Skunk Bear is looking for Good Questions to guide our next series of videos. Submit here:

And please reblog so your friends can ask their questions, too!

I don’t understand people. I thought maybe I did a little, but I know absolutely nothing because everything is so confusing. Especially when it comes to love. Because if you give someone love and affection you have to give them the “right amount” because if it’s too much it seems like they eventually pull themselves away or feel suffocated, but If you give them too much space they think you’re being cruel or they just let you go because apparently your presence has no effect on them. I try to play their games, but it always results in me being ignored. I’m nice to people, I hold conversations, I’ll make you happy, I’ll make you feel important and be there when you’re sad. I’m passionate, curious, and I’m into science. I want to be something in this world. Why doesn’t anything work? What am I not doing right? I try to tell myself it’s them and not me, but how many times do I have to be shut out before it can’t be “just assholes” or the “wrong person”. How could it be anything except me.

@mylatestobssession brought up an interesting thought that would this sl be meaningful if the “twist” is not a pregnancy, but a story about dubious consent and that it in fact can happen to males as well?
Because while they have been trying to “redeem” Rebecca’s character over the past few weeks, let’s not forget, this is not the first time that we have discussed consent in relation to her.
When she arrived in emmerdale, she consistently put herself in Robert’s personal space, made sexual advances to him, and tried to kiss him even after he repeatedly turned her down. And after she was turned down, she repeatedly mocked his sexuality. She would act like the scorned party, as if she was the one that was in a relationship with him. Then do it all over again. It seemed to me that she acted as if she was entitled to him because of their past. This is not even taking into account what happened last week which was even more uncomfortable then what I just mentioned.
That being said, do y'all see this happening? And if it did, would it make this sl justifiable?

Here are some more fantastic everlark fics to check out. These fics have everything you are looking for: fluff, angst, action, smut..and Everlark. Have fun reading!

Mars in the 8th House

Mars’ sexual and passionate nature is emphasized in the 8th house. People with this placement often have a high sex drive and use their sexual and passionate personality to attract curious and submissive relationship and sexual partners. 

The 8th house represents sex, death, regeneration and transformation. When it is in the planet of Mars, this placement often goes through many transformations of where they put their energy and ambitions in. Anything to do with their sexuality may change as well.

When these people get heated (angrily or sexually) they take it to the extreme. They may be very vindictive and unforgiving to someone who crossed them and will often suffer mentally and physically from doing so. This is also reflected in their sex life, they want to dominate and control and will use their all in those situations. This placement can indicate STI’s and other sexually related diseases if not careful.

These people tend to be fearless and laugh at the face of fear, they see it as another learning experience and another opportunity to transform, as long as they don’t take it too far then they will use it to their advantage and will be able to succeed because of their undying determination.

What Mars in the 8th needs to learn is that it can’t be all or nothing for every situation and that if they continue to metaphorically die and then rebirth as the 8th house does, eventually they will end up getting hurt and will be stuck in a prison of their own thoughts, unable to escape and fulfill their duty of transformation.
