Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.

I just need everyone to watch this video [x]. She’s a 5 foot, 100 lb gymnast and she beasts through this insanely difficult, heavily upper body focused course like it was her morning jog. The camera keeps cutting to these massive, musclebound men in the audience with their mouths hanging open. 

this is the most amazing thing ive ever seen

Ugh my dad shared a “straight pride” thing on facebook

Ways for Chef to Circumvent Taste-Tester and Defeat King

  1. Only poison 10% of the chicken breast.  The odds that the taste-tester will eat the poison part is slim but the king will probably eat at least some of the bad part
  2. Use any poison that takes longer than an hour to work
  3. Use a very dense liquid poison so that it is in the bottom of the wine glass.  The taste-tester will only drink the top less-dense portion of the drink and therefore will think the whole drink is fine
  4. Fill a cake with live bees.  The taste-tester will probably notice the bees but it will be too late because he will have already unleashed them upon the manor

Sloths respond to mean tweets about them.

Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.

Do you have a sexual orientation? Do you NOT? Great! My friend is a former teacher of mine, currently trying to fix our broken educational system, and they’re running a survey about well-being, sexual orientation, gender identity, and romantic orientation. HERE IS THE SURVEY or in case the link doesn’t work, the URL is https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/3VLZTXD 

It took me about 15 minutes but it’s very inclusive and asked a lot of good questions so hey do the thing please?

Project for my Social Psych class last semester. This poster series was created to 1) challenge these internalized stereotypes by bringing them to the viewer’s attention and 2) expand the range of role models by including a diverse group of women. Each poster follows the same basic pattern: a woman who has demonstrated her competency in a particular area refutes the stereotype that appears above her in the form of “Girls can’t …”. While the posters target girls ranging from children to young adults, I expect the message would also cause people outside that demographic to question their own beliefs about women and power.  I designed each aspect of the posters with several principles of social psychology in mind:

Many people object to “wasting money in space” yet have no idea how much is actually spent on space exploration. The CSA’s budget, for instance, is less than the amount Canadians spend on Halloween candy every year, and most of it goes toward things like developing telecommunications satellites and radar systems to provide data for weather and air quality forecasts, environmental monitoring and climate change studies. Similarly, NASA’s budget is not spent in space but right here on Earth, where it’s invested in American businesses and universities, and where it also pays dividends, creating new jobs, new technologies and even whole new industries.
