I HAVE BEEN SAYING THIS FOR AGES
The bible literally says the sky is a transparent dome surrounded by water, preventing it from seeping onto the flat earth except when it rains.
In addition to essentially inventing the computer, Alan Turing also broke the German Enigma Code during World War II which paved the way for the D-Day invasion. The man was a hyper-genius. I’ve read descriptions of his work by mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose. He’s been a hero of mine ever since.
The level of thought required to come up with the stuff he came up with is totally beyond my comprehension. I actually did not even know about his orientation until much later. He was prosecuted and ordered to undergo chemical castration. Soon thereafter, he committed suicide by eating a cyanide-laced apple.
The government forced him to take estrogen as a punishment (or “cure”?). He began to develop breasts and other side effects.
He committed suicide by biting into a cyanide laced apple. This is supposedly the inspiration for the name/logo of Apple computers.
and old Apple computers
the apple was a rainbow
Reblogging again because more people need to know about Turing dammit.

Evolution of Pokemon Games
"Elmo is with his good friend, Lupita. They are talking about all the great things about their skin. For example, Elmo’s skin just happens to be very ticklish. Lupita’s skin happens to be a beautiful brown color. Skin can come in all different shades and colors. Isn’t skin just the best? However, ticklish or smooth or black or brown or white or tan, be sure to love the skin you are in."
I <3 these kinds of messages in kids media. I may need to show this when I teach kids about diversity.
Motoi Yamamoto’s Incredible Saltscapes
Japanese artist Motoi Yamamoto sees more uses in salt than the ordinary person. His artwork stems from the death of his sister, who passed away at a young age from brain cancer. In Japanese culture there is an idea of throwing salt over yourself after you attend a funeral acts as a sort of cleansing. So Yamamoto started using salt as his medium, creating intricate labyrinths and mazes as he calls them. Not only does Motoi create intricate patterns but full scale installations as well.
Watch the vide:
the victoria secret models don’t even look human??
The Victoria’s Secret models worked their butt off to look like that, so don’t degrade people on their hard work. All the women in this post are beautiful.
THANK YOULiterally shut up
It is literally the Victoria Secret model’s job to look like that and it is a full time job. Every single woman pictured here is absolutely gorgeous. Don’t be an asshole.
but i think it also needs to be said that the victoria’s secret ad shows no diversity in body type. while there’s absolutely nothing wrong with any of the ladies pictured, the fact is that there’s no representation for larger women, which is pretty fucking important when the name of your campaign is ‘love your body’. they’re not even acknowledging that any other body type exists, and that’s not okay.
This pretty much sums up my reaction to book 3 and the book 4 trailer
Yea are you jealous?
WHY IS THIS GETTING SO MANY NOTES I ONLY MEANT TO TELL YOU GUYS
