Eat Your Tardigrades or You Don’t Get Dessert!
You know this little guy, right? It’s the mighty tardigrade, as featured in the new Cosmos. Tardigrades, also known as water bears, also known as FREAKIN’ MOSS PIGLETS, are microscopic eight-legged animals that can withstand temperatures from near absolute zero to boiling water, absorb extreme doses of radiation, go without food or water for ten years, and even survive the vacuum of space. They can even be completely dried out and ride on the wind to a new home, where they rehydrate and go about their tardibusiness. Tardigrade rain, folks.
In other words, they are BAMFs (bad-ass microfauna).
Oh, and you’ve probably eaten them. Thanks to Meg Lowman, I found out that these water-dwelling super-critters live not only on wild mosses and wet plants, but on grocery store produce like lettuce and spinach. Do you think that a mere rinse or shake under the faucet (or even cooking) is enough to dislodge a radiation-eating space pig? Ha! Not by a long shot, according to Lowman.
So yeah… trying to go strictly vegetarian? You’ve almost certainly eaten some tardigrades. Sorry. Don’t worry, though. They’re totally harmless. I like to imagine that when I eat them, I absorb their power, and become a little bit mightier.
New motto: For strength, eat your vegetables and eat your tardigrades.
Meg Lowman has more about your local tardigrade friends. Also check out Lowman’s awesome research project that helps wheelchair-bound students climb to the top of the forest canopy where they help study tardigrade biodiversity. Science is for everyone!

i love its stupid face

noot

did you know england sent them in to space and called it tardigrades in space and shortened it down to tardis

UPDATE: I just looked that last part up and yes, the European Space Agency did launch tardigrades into space to test their supposed invincibility as part of a mission called “Tardigrades In Space” that they did abbreviate as TARDIS.
Well played, Europe.
Read about that 2007 mission here and here.

It’s a learning process. For every heart break that you have, you’re also redefining and further defining what you’re looking for in a person.

A white rainbow (also known as a lunar rainbow, lunar bow or moonbow) is a rainbow produced by light reflected off the surface of the moon rather than from direct sunlight. Moonbows are relatively faint, due to the smaller amount of light reflected from the surface of the moon.

pregnant!katniss forcing peeta to make her cheese buns at 3 in the morning

papa!peeta would never have to be forced to do anything for Katniss, He’d probably have them pre-made and oven ready by the time she asked

this is an accurate correction

Anonymous asked: Tits, pussy, horny old men, dumb-fuck guys getting critiqued on their dick pics, what the fuck. Jewelry through your pussy lips and clit and Linkin Park scratched into your belly while chicks want to suck on your tits and old alien men are too hot for you to get close too. Sometimes I stumble on this shit and wonder why the world is a cesspool. You used to be a star because of your talents. Now its pussy, ass, clits, and dicks. Fucking fucking fucking. Life's a shit.

if women are so hurt by being called bossy, or are afraid of leadership positions because they don’t want to be called bossy are probably not fit for leadership positions to begin with.

Little girls. This campaign is aimed at little girls. Little girls who are being bullied and demeaned by both their peers and adults in their life for not being passive enough. 

Little girls. 

You are advocating for little girls to be bullied. Look at yourself.

Here’s what you do… Go to your girlfriend’s place and apologize for tricking her into thinking you were an adult who could handle something as simple has pubic hair and then tell her she should leave you because you’re a jackass.
