as the eve of the blood of olympus release approaches us, i’d just like to say, for the final time:


thank you for inspiring us all and reminding us that anyone can be a hero, no matter who you are. 

To my followers in the south eastern United States, even if you only have a tropical storm warning PLEASE PREPARE. Fill your tubs with water, board up your home, batteries, flashlights, portable chargers, canned goods, WATER, seriously guys this isn’t a joke. This is a DEADLY storm. News can only predict so much but nature is nature and it can make last minute moves and you don’t want to be stuck unprepared while intense winds and rains impact your unprepared home and family. Hurricane Andrew was said to hit an hour north of my home back in 1992 and it moved last minute 80 miles south and completely FLATTENED the area of where I lived. It was an apocalypse. People weren’t prepared. Don’t risk it guys.

Taking Flight for Cosmonautics Day with @sergeyiss

To see more of Sergey’s photos from this planet and beyond, check out @sergeyiss on Instagram.

(This interview was conducted in Russian.)

Sergey Ryazanskiy (@sergeyiss) shares images of stunning sunrises, erupting volcanoes and cities lit up at night from the most exotic of locations: outer space. After years of working in biochemistry and research, he left Moscow to study at the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center in Star City, Russia, in 2003. Sergey waited 10 years for his first flight to the International Space Station, and is preparing for his next mission, scheduled for November 2017. “Life on board is bizarre and unusual,” Sergey says. “You have to learn how to do a lot of things all over again, discovering things you hadn’t even thought about on Earth.” #CosmonauticsDay

Teen Wolf has got some real Noah’s Ark shit going down in their casting room except instead of collecting two of every animal they’re collecting two of every hot guy. Two Tylers, two Ians, two Dylans.

Plan C: The top secret Cold War plan for martial law in the USA

Michael from Muckrock sez, “Starting on April 19, 1956, the federal government practiced and planned for a near-doomsday scenario known as Plan C. When activated, Plan C would have brought the United States under martial law, rounded up over ten thousand individuals connected to ‘subversive’ organizations, implemented a censorship board, and prepared the country for life after nuclear attack. There was no Plan A or B.”
