buzzfeed: instead of buying a 3$ bottle of bug spray, mix lemon juice and these essential oils in some water and spray it on yourself!
does anyone who works at that company do research before posting ANYTHING like jesus christ some essential oils can cause chemical burns when exposed to heat (i.e. sitting around a campfire, being out in the sun) and same with lemon juice?? also most essentially oils they listed are toxic to both cats and dogs (as well as other animals I’m sure) so like??? good job buzzfeed! trying to hurt your readers AND their animals this time! nice!
anyways I wish buzzfeed would screen their content before posting it
On April 24, 2017, NASA Astronaut Peggy Whitson established the new record for the most time spent in space by an American astronaut. She’s spent more than 76 weeks of her life floating in microgravity! It’s not the first time in her career at NASA that Whitson has established new milestones: here are just a few.
First NASA Science Officer
Peggy Whitson was the named the first NASA Science Officer aboard the space station in 2002. The position was created to work with the United States research community to understand and meet the requirements and objectives of each space station experiment.
First Female to Command the Space Station… Twice
Whitson became the first female to command the space station during Expedition 16 in 2008. Then Whitson became the first female to command the station twice during her current mission on April 9, 2017.
First Female Chief of the Astronaut Office
In 2009, Whitson became the first female and first non-pilot to achieve the most senior position for active astronauts, Chief of the Astronaut Office.
Most Spacewalks for a Female
On March 30, 2017, Peggy Whitson broke the record for most spacewalks and most time spent spacewalking for female astronauts. Suni Williams had previously held the record at 7 spacewalks.
Most Time In Space By A NASA Astronaut
At 1:27 a.m. ET on April 24, Peggy Whitson set the new record for cumulative time spent in space by an American astronaut. Jeff Williams previously set the record in 2016.
Hey kids! Quick author announcement: thanks so much for reading! We’ve made it to the end of part i, which is utter madness. My life has changed a bunch since I started working on Mimon and it’s about to start changing a bunch again. (But, with any luck, in a direction that will let me start prioritising the comic more!) The last page of part i has coincided with the same week I finish up the dregs of my studies, and so to celebrate I’m taking a couple of weeks off to drive around Scotland with my roommate. We’ll be up and running again on Monday the 19th of June, but until then, I’ll just say this: thank you so much to everyone who has supported this project, whether you’ve been following it since I first started posting sketches in late 2015, or if you stumbled across it yesterday. This is one of the first independent projects I’ve ever committed to, and it means a lot that anyone would take time out of their day to read it. The support I’ve received has been wonderful and overwhelming, and I only hope I don’t let you all down in future. See you all soon, kiss ur pets for me!
I’ve got this problem where I really want to travel and take cool exotic jobs and move from place to place but I’m also dying to have my own little house where I can have chickens and a garden and fruit trees and enjoy domestic bliss
when you combine this with my headcanon (for my bitty-navigates-his-early-20′s fic that i may or may not ever write) that bitty joins a local beer league after he moves to Providence….you get…
Bitty is thrilled when he discovers a local rec league in Providence. He’s missed being out on the ice and it sounds like a great way to make some friends. Even better, there’s no checking allowed. He signs up right away.
Looking back on this month, I’d say it’s been pretty productive. I haven’t finished my last research paper yet (it’s due the 30th), but I did do a lot of work to prepare, research notes and such. It’s been a good month, but I’m looking forward to May because I can finally (for the first time in many years) read what I want to instead of have to!
My name is Rami, my pronouns are he/him/his, and I’m a student at the University of Chicago. I’m currently working on a study for a sociology class about the way young members of the lgbt+ community across the globe have used tumblr not only as a social media, but also as a space to support and care for one another.
I remember how much this website was able to support me as I was coming out and trying to figure out my gender/sexual identity: Having support from everyone on this site literally changed my life.
If you feel like the same is true for you, Please reach out! Reblog this post, send me a direct message, share this around: the more people who are aware of/can contribute to my research the better!
