the future is man made

“To every future leading man who’s making his debut in his fifth grade class as Peter Pan, as Pirate #2. To every future dancing queen who’s feet are set to fly at the Tiny Toddler’s tap routine next Sunday at the Y. To the theater kids from any place with stardust in their eyes, of every color, class and race and face and shape and size. To the boys and girls, transgenders too, to every Broadway would-be. Don’t wonder if this could be you. It absolutely could be!” — James Corden hosting the 70th Annual Tony Awards

A giant sphere was found in Bosnia and researchers aren’t sure where it came from

In the middle of a forest on the outskirts of Zavidovici, Bosnia, archaeologist Semir Osmanagich has discovered a very large, very round rock with a radius between four and five feet. Possibly more than 1,500 years old, Osmanagich thinks this Bosnian rock ball may be “the oldest stone sphere made by human hands.” Others in the scientific community are pushing back, saying the stone isn’t necessarily man-made.

From the moment I understood the game, I knew United were the one.

You find something that you can identify with, something that resonates in your chest every single time you watch them emerge from the tunnel and walk onto the pitch. Something that is capable of making your heart burst at the seams in an instant for two directly oppositional reasons. When you hear your home stadium erupt into life, when you can feel the atmosphere bringing you to the verge of tears, when your entire body is immersed in goosebumps, when the hairs on the back of your neck stand to attention, you know, you just know.

I don’t know how a football club can take over every single emotion possible, but it happens week in, week out. I find myself anchored to this club, attached by my heart strings. It is agonisingly painful in defeat but euphorically beautiful in victory. To remain so staunchly proud of a team that has not rose to the occasion and has let you down. To still have an immense amount of adoration for all the times you have been left bitterly disappointed with a rival defeat. For all the times your team has took you to that cup final and lost on penalties. When they do lift that Premier League / Champions League / F.A Cup, when Van Der Sar does save that critical penalty, when they decimate the rivals, when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer steals that last minute goal to solidify that victory, the colossal amount of elation and exhilaration is absolutely boundless.

Football is the most beautiful, powerful, evocative and emotional thing I have ever loved. People who are worlds apart figuratively and literally, join forces and unite to celebrate their devotion for not only their club but their country. Brought together for that same passion, pride and love that you are so honoured to possess. Enriching every single life that it touches, there is simply nothing else like it in the world.

Dipper made Mabel cry, and was shocked.

Dipper knows Mabel probably better than anyone else. He knows how how happy she is on a daily basis. He knows how bad things will have to get before she gets upset. He knows how she always tries to be positive, even when things are at their worst.

The last time he saw Mabel cry was when he convinced her that Stan wasn’t Stan (after finding the fake ID’s in Not what he seems), leading her mind to believe that Stan was pretending to love them.

STAN PRETENDING TO LOVE HER

He knows that ONLY the worst, most terrible, most horrific thing could ever make Mabel cry. The mere thought of all her fun with Stan not being true, that she had been living in a fantasy and that she had been blinded by flattery.

DIPPER PRETENDING TO LOVE HER

He was so hesitant to leave Mabel during the school year because he loved her. The mere thought of Dipper not loving her. When Mabel feels that she’s been lied to, or really TRULY betrayed, she gets so upset, that she cries.

DIPPER MADE MABEL SO UPSET THAT SHE CRIED.

Scientists just created synthetic life with the world’s smallest genome

Scientists have created a bacterium with the smallest number of genes needed for life. This little lab-built guy is based on a type of Mycoplasma bacteria found in mammals, but it has fewer than 500 genes. To put that into perspective, humans have about 24,000 genes. Even tiny fruit flies have about 17,000. The breakthrough could help alleviate man-made and impending disasters.

DOES ANYBODY KNOW HOW TO SAY “ASEXUAL” (AS IN THE SEXUAL ORIENTATION, NOT AMOEBAS) IN FRENCH? BECAUSE I KEEP GETTING STUPID ASSIGNMENTS THAT ARE PRETTY MUCH UNDOABLE BECAUSE OF ALL OF THE ALLOSEXUAL-/ALLOROMANTICNORMATIVITY AND I CAN’T FIND ANYTHING ANYWHERE AND I’M REALLY FRUSTRATED AND AHH SOMEBODY HELP ME PLEASE

Hello so apparently there was misinformation in the previous petition post and that’s a bit confusing and disappointing as well since it may now be unwise to sign that petition. BUT I would still like to put a warning out there about this man to all SW girls and girls whom plan on attending SW in the future.

This man has countless times made extremely sexist remarks towards both girls and boys speaking in generalizing terms. For Example:

“Boys don’t like dance or aerobics they like sports, and competitive games”

“Girls and boys are not the same boys are just more competitive than girls that’s just the way it is”

And one of my favorites

“Back in my time that’s just the way things were girls did dance and boys did sports”

During this past year at SW high I have endured multiple debates with this man on the subject of an aerobics unit for class. This unit requires for girls to make up a 20 minute long routine which we at the end of the unit perform in front of the class. I was a bit confused at the fact that we were doing dance routines for a gym class because personally yes I did sign up to run and learn different sports and work out in the weight room and learn lifting safety. Later on when Mr. Whitehead told us that he would be video taping us for “grading purposes” I was extremely disturbed especially after the fact that he sent no consent forms home which is not legal and also who needs to take video of a 20 minute long assignment for grading when you can easily grade it right there. I’d like to add the fact that the boys gym class was not even given the option of making an aerobics routine until myself and a few others that shall go unnamed demanded he give them choice, they were playing sports and running everyday instead. The only other option girls were given was to run for 25 minutes straight with no breaks unless they excepted points docked off. This man is one of the utmost sexist and mysogonistic men I have ever had to deal with in my life and I would like for people to know how he treats us girls and how I will not stand for it. So please to all my fellow ladies, do not stand for it, not only when this man is talking down on us but any man, because no man can talk down to someone who’s knowledge is above theirs. So educate yourselves, ready yourselves every damn day, our pride is not there’s to take away, I mean all women whether you are Black White Chinese Japanese Native American Taiwanese African American Hmong Somali Transgender Lesbian Straight Bi Pan Asexual All races all genders all sexualities we are women and we must stand together on this because if we don’t, who else will?
