I watched this video for the first time in Kroger and I had to stop because I was literally about to cry. The Blackout era of Britney was so perfectly captured by the video editor. Whoever made this is like Michelangelo for the Church of Britney. 

10/10 would recommend.

Did you happen to catch the asteroid that is buzzing by us right now? If you have a telescope and a clear sky to the east, there’s still time to see asteroid 2004 BL86. The 1,100-foot-diameter body got as close as 745,000 miles from Earth yesterday, about 3.1 times farther than the distance from us to the moon.

Unless you have equipment like NASA’s 230-foot-wide Deep Space Network antenna, though, you won’t be able to see this little surprise tagging along with BL86. Yesterday, scientists using the antenna in Goldstone, Calif. took radar images of the asteroid and found that it is travelling with a little moon just 230 feet in diameter.

Researchers at the Jet Propulsion Lab say such asteroid duos aren’t an anomaly in our solar system: A survey of asteroids near Earth that are 655 feet across or larger found that some 16 percent have one or two moons orbiting them.

You know your problem, Quentin? You keep expecting people not to be themselves. I mean, I could hate you for being massively unpunctual and for never being interested in anything other than Margo Roth Spiegelman, and for, like, never asking me about how it’s going with my girlfriend - but I don’t give a shit, man, because you’re you. My parents have a shit ton of black Santas, but that’s okay. They’re them. I’m too obsessed with a reference website to answer my phone sometimes when my friends call, or my girlfriend. That’s okay, too. That’s me. You like me anyway. And I like you. You’re funny, and you’re smart, and you may show up late, but you always show up eventually.
