I really hate long-ass ‘previously on…’ bits in front of episodes
I fucking know what happened previously ok
I just marathonned two seasons in a day trust me I know
I will know my life is successful when I have a library with a rolling ladder

next time someone tells you Muslim countries oppress women, let them know Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Turkey, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, and Senegal have all had female Presidents or Prime Ministers and 1/3rd of Egypt’s parliament is female but the US has yet to even have a female vice president and can’t say “vagina” when discussing female reproductive rights
.I love wood, brick and soft furniture together. it’s really beautiful and balanced.//Sounds crazy, but I have always wanted to live in an apartment like this in a big city and eat Chinese take out every night. No joke.
Everytime I look at the continent oriented this way I think about how FRIKKIN TINY ENGLAND IS and how it went and did this.
Can we just take a moment to appreciate the Fuller Projection?
This map presents a world that is nearly contiguous and at accurate sizes and shapes to the continents.
And there is no “correct” orientation for it (the directionality of north/south being arbitrary after all )
The downsides are that it cuts up Antarctica and distorts the size of oceans, which is bad news for sailors and penguin researchers, but for geography in general it’s AWESOME(X)
I love this for (at least) two reasons:
1) I feel like if extra-terrestrials ever approached our solar system, they would do so from either the top or bottom (as relative to Earth’s North Pole at least, itself being relative to what we decide to call “top”) so as to avoid collisions/close passes with asteroidal flotsam and cometary jetsam. They’d have a 50% chance of seeing Earth from (half of) this perspective, so we should understand what our world would look like from up/down there.
2) I really love the idea of a flat world where all corners are inhospitable prisons of ice and snow. Sci-fi premise unlocked.
This is not the Fuller Projection. This is.
This pictured above is the Peirce Quincuncial.
I’m just sayin’ since the Fuller Projection is my favorite, and the one pictured above certainly ain’t it.
And yeah, I have shoes with toes.
This is why I love Tumblr, because I can find out that I am totally wrong (someone should tell John Green he is wrong too) and I can not only not feel bad about it, I learn something in the process. It’s like, life man.
I WAS WRONG. Thank you, Ellejohara!
This is crazy. I love different perspectives.
