valid criticisms of Anita Sarkeesian: Her unclear reasoning behind still asking for money for her videos, her absolutely glacial rate of video making, the fact that she analyzes games which she knows little about, or how her views on Feminism do not represent all schools of feminist thought

invalid criticisms of Anita Sarkeesian: She hates men, she wants all games to pander to women, she wants to take our games away!!!!

Anonymous: Wanna talk about dignity? I farted in my doctoral defense. Right after a super serious question from a committee member. A wet juicy squeaky fart that echoed around the front of the room. My friends have called me Dr. Fart since. I was once introduced at a conference that way accidentally. People I don't even know have met me, widened their eyes, & said, oh, you're Dr. Fart. I'm a legend they tell at my grad school about a grad student who farted at their defense. NO DIGNITY EVER AGAIN.

At 19, I read a sentence that re-terraformed my head: “The level of matter in the universe has been constant since the Big Bang.”
In all the aeons we have lost nothing, we have gained nothing - not a speck, not a grain, not a breath. The universe is simply a sealed, twisting kaleidoscope that has reordered itself a trillion trillion trillion times over.
Each baby, then, is a unique collision - a cocktail, a remix - of all that has come before: made from molecules of Napoleon and stardust and comets and whale tooth; colloidal mercury and Cleopatra’s breath: and with the same darkness that is between the stars between, and inside, our own atoms.
When you know this, you suddenly see the crowded top deck of the bus, in the rain, as a miracle: this collection of people is by way of a starburst constellation. Families are bright, irregular-shaped nebulae. Finding a person you love is like galaxies colliding. We are all peculiar, unrepeatable, perambulating micro-universes - we have never been before and we will never be again. Oh God, the sheer exuberant, unlikely face of our existences. The honour of being alive. They will never be able to make you again. Don’t you dare waste a second of it thinking something better will happen when it ends. Don’t you dare. — Caitlin Moran (via artvevo)

Boys walk past unclaimed human skulls and skeletons inside a common grave at a cemetery in Las Pinas, Metro Manila. All Souls’ Day in the Philippines, known as Araw ng mga Patay - and All Saints’ Day are the two most important days in the Filipino calender. There are at least 100 burials held here every week. According to a cemetery worker, the unclaimed skulls and skeletons are placed in a common grave after their ‘lease’ is finished to make way for more graves.

In this episode of Stuff to Blow Your Mind, Robert and Julie explore the history of the illness and its cultural effects, from powdered wigs and false noses to surgical advances and vampire myths.

Polish and Ukrainian scientists unearth 1,000 victims of Stalin in castle

Polish and Ukrainian scientists have unearthed a mass grave containing up to 1,000 victims of Stalinist terror in a castle once used as a secret police prison.

Among the victims in the grave were Polish soldiers. The Polish press has already called the find a “new Katyn” in reference to a massacre of thousands of Poles by Stalin in 1940, which still clouds Polish-Russian relations.

The grave was found in the grounds of the Kazimierz the Great castle in the town of Volodymyr-Volynsky in western Ukraine, close to the Polish border.

Although the 11th-century castle served as a base for Stalin’s infamous NKVD from 1939-56, scientists say the victims were killed between 1940 and 1941. Read more.

Ash just told me that i should do a “vulture ice bucket challenge” and tip maceration water over myself.
Fuck.
Off.

Only for enough money that I would never have to work again for a single day in my life! Even then I would hesitate. I’ve only emptied maceration water once and it is something I never want to experience again.

Yeah, no. Sometimes I don’t wear gloves when I empty maceration buckets and the contents get on my hands. The smell lingers for a few days if not a week.

one time, I didn’t remove the tongue on this goat head I was working on (I was soaking it to soften up the rest of the flesh) in the basement, and that… was a mistake
