homophobia, birds, lewdish, funny 

expectation for running a zoo social media: look at our cute lion cubs!!!

reality: the male birds are fucking, Lorie. by choice.

Science papers are always full of figures, but very rarely are they to scale, but in this astrophysics paper, which I’ve never heard of an astrophysics paper having a figure to scale, the authors included a 1:1 scale of a 5 Earth-mass back hole. So take 5 Earths worth of mass, compress it so it curbed spacetime infinitely, and this is how big that would be.

My hand for scale, don’t let your actual hand get that close to a real black hole though.

1. Advertising shits in your head, it is a form of visual and psychological pollution.

2. Removing/Replacing/Defacing advertising is not vandalism, it is an act of tidying up that is both legally and morally defensible.

3. The Visual Realm is a Public Realm, it is part of the commons, it belongs to everyone, so nobody should be able to own it.

4. Outdoor Advertising can and should be banned, Sao Paulo did it in 2006, Grenoble followed suit in 2015.

my marine ecology professor is such a mood:
-65, wrinkled, wearing a sweatshirt and jeans
-calls everyone (esp cis men) “sister”
-just told a male student “keep goin baby, you’re almost there” as he was struggling w a definition
-says rad abt 3x per lecture

francis fukuyamas the kind of guy to take a shit and come out like "the end of shits is upon us. Mark my words: no more shits "

Normalise not knowing things.

You don't need to always know things, and you don't need an opinion on everything.

In fact, sometimes it's better to not know things. That means you have the chance to learn something new!

hulloh there ol' chum! im gnot a gnome, im gnot a gnoah, im a gnoam, and you've been GNOAMED

mocking people for being nerds is the worst fucking thing. "ha ha look at this dipshit who is passionate enough about something to spend their life learning about something they love! what a fucking loser"

Please, Jesus Christ is so formal. What is this, a board meeting? Why don’t you throw in “the Lord” while we’re at it. Haha I’m kidding, but really just call me Chris, all my friends do! If you don’t, well I’m sure my dad wouldn’t be too happy haha AGAIN KIDDING haha im actually my dad

astral projecting to give all my homies a hug

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.
