This is it. This is truly the most horrifying image humanity has ever created. This is the downfall of all that we have ever known, all of our hopes and dreams, our very way of life.
banksy strikes again
- other girls: straight hair, nice makeup, short skirts, fashion, cheerleading, high heels
- me: short hair, combat boots, smudged makeup, cargo pants, face mask, metal arm, over 2 dozen confirmed kills in the past 50 years. i am the winter soldier.
If the point of the Big Bang Theory was to show that male nerds can be just as sexist as male jocks then well done I guess
This amazing image is part of a series of maps in a manuscript from the 1460s. What is striking is not just that we can so clearly recognize Europe, Asia and Africa, but that these continents are depicted so incredibly beautifully, in deep blue and gold. The map seems to float in space and above it various winds are blowing, produced by men with toy trumpets. Clouds are quietly drifting by. Who can resist jumping in and becoming part of this intoxicating blue world?

In honor of Earth Day I thought I would post a really cool audio file of how Earth sounds from space. Although there is no sound in space, this audio file is actually radio waves that were emitting from our planet and then converted into audio by computers. Pretty incredible stuff.
wow, it’s actually as powerful and beautiful as you’d expect.
