why are you so fired up over feminism and rape culture

brennanat:

  • because i woke up from a nap with a boys hands sliding down my jeans and when I left him with a black eye he told everyone i was a bitch and a slut that he used for sex when I had never had sex at all
  • because my close friend was raped in her dorm room and now she can’t get in bed without checking that the door is locked 3 times
  • because “she was asking for it” is still said
  • because no doesn’t mean no in todays society
  • because i can’t wear shorts in 90 degree weather without being oversexualized
  • because the phrase “boys will be boys” is still in existance
  • BECAUSE IT IS IMPORTANT AND SOMETHING TO BE FIRED UP OVER

The chicken project

Welsh designer Kieren Jones explains how he constructed a miniature factory to transform the uneaten parts of a chicken into a gold leather flying jacket and a bone china eggcup and spoon.

Makes me re-evaluate the bones on my plate. Plus there’s a little bit of basic science behind the role of Calcium in bones if you watch the video (see source).

Wisconsin Is Getting Smothered by Millions of Horny Maylies

Close your mouth while looking at these photos, or a bug might fly in.

by John Metcalfe

This storm-cloud-looking apparition is actually a massive swarm of mayflies, an “emergence" of them, to get all Lovecraftian. Mayfly nymphs spend a year or two in the water (in this case, the Mississippi River) munching on organic decay.

Then, when summer arrives, they take flight en masse and proceed to make sweet bug love before immediately going back to the water to lay eggs and die.

This year’s emergence was so large people were comparing it to the last Biblical-style, one in 2012. If you don’t recall that stunning example of life’s majesty…

A Guardian undercover investigation exposes conditions inside the chicken factories that supply some of the biggest supermarket and fast-food chains in the business, including KFC, Tesco, Aldi, Asda, Marks & Spencer and Nando’s. Find out why the drive for cheaper chicken is making more than 250,000 of us sick every year

Three of the UK’s leading supermarkets have launched emergency investigations into their chicken supplies after a Guardian investigation uncovered a catalog of alleged hygiene failings in the poultry industry.

Undercover footage, photographic evidence and information from whistleblowers has revealed how strict industry hygiene standards to prevent the contamination of chicken with the potentially deadly campylobacter bug can be flouted on the factory floor and on farms.

Specific incidents identified in the last month include a factory floor flooded with chickens guts in which the bacteria can flourish, carcasses coming into contact with workers’ boots then returned to the production line and other poor practices involving points in the production chain that increase the risk of its spread.

THIS GENIUS MACHINE FEEDS STRAY DOGS IN EXCHANGE FOR RECYCLED BOTTLES

The Turkish company Pugedon has created a vending machine that’s dispensing help for both the environment and our furry friends.

Watch the machine in action here.

It’s similar to the machines that accept trash and recyclables for train tickets and people food.

Progression & innovation, dudes.

wouldn’t this make a city’s stray dog problem worse? giving them a constant source of food, encouraging them to breed and come back. What if they have diseases? Seems like that would endanger all the people near that park (most of whom look like children)

Here is a short list of a few of the hundreds of examples of the media intentionally manipulating the public to support Israel’s recent offensive against Palestinians
July 24, 2014

Please reblog or message with additions as you see/think of them and I will edit with the additions. I am sure we can create quite a large list of examples.
I would cry if I ever made it here one day. To stand where some of the greatest engineers stood, to be in a place that was one of history’s greatest civilizations. Awesome.

Yesterday was one of the most difficult days I’ve had in a while. I guess being around the same people over an extended period of time has left me in that familiar state of harsh self-judgment. It always happens this way. They all get comfortable, I get freaked out, and psych myself out about the atrocities I will commit that will lose their friendships forever. The daunting prospect of future uncertainties. I say it that way because really, there’s a fifty percent chance that it actually could end well, or not even end at all, if that’s not pushing it. My future actions or inaction, my mounting insecurities and self-hate do NOT have to actually crumble all on top of me. Maybe, like clay, I can just smooth the piling mound down to a flat plane of respect, tranquility, and honest existence free from life-threatening fears. Maybe, they won’t all hate me in the end, and maybe, just maybe, I can survive and not treat myself like shit. 

Last night I realized how much love I have lost from my behavior in conjunction with the love I have lost for myself. In a strange occurrence, I lost my kindness towards people through my efforts of focusing on myself and my mental, emotional, and physical health. I blinded myself to the mercy and tenderness that people need to be shown. I’ve let myself become a real bitch, and yet I’m over here whimpering in a drink cooler about how stupid and undeserving of life I am because I can’t interpret people’s tones towards me. I realize that this really doesn’t make any sense to you.. but I guess I’m just trying to say that I need to stop getting so scared when I act in my usual annoying way. I need to stop labeling myself these rude and critical things, and start uplifting myself WHILE showing more love and consideration to other people’s feelings. 

I always picture myself as a flower in a clay pot with the holes drilled into the bottom. As I am watered, I want that same life-force to flow out of me into my surrounding environment for whoever needs it. Dumb, i’m sure that sounds, but it’s the best way for me to grasp my purpose. 

I think I was just destined to give, and that’s what I intend to do and improve on.

That is all.

Vrubel, Mikhail (1856-1910) - 1897 Morning (State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia)
Vrubel stands out because of the originality of his art. Despite the absence of direct followers, the importance of Vrubel’s art should not be underestimated. He pointed the way and made possible the experiments of the succeeding decades.
