(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ Spinning Jump of Success

The thing I love about Korra is that they didn’t make her a strong female character with a traditionally feminine body. She’s strong and looks strong. Don’t get me wrong, I love kick-ass ladies in action movies, but why do so many of them look hyper feminine? I’m sick of all these kick ass ladies in action movies with waifish, emaciated figures that ultimately still cater to male audiences (omg look at her fight and punch a 200lb guy across a room, but muscles are gross so we got an actress who has no upper body muscles to do that).

Like, small feminine girls can fight. Awesome! But I don’t like how media is so focused on promoting feminine bodies that they skip out on the fact that women who fight and kick ass are more likely to have musculature that doesn’t fit in to your typical feminine cookie-cutter character.

Ever wanted to learn some in-depth astronomy? Are textbooks worded boringly? Then good news! Stella the Star is not only hecka cute, but she’s also gonna teach you the life cycle of a Sun-like star AND you can learn all the science mumbo-jumbo words too!

This was my final project for the Astronomy class at my University a few years back, and honestly I’ve been meaning to upload it for a while now. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did creating it! c:

rosalind franklin discovered the double helix in dna but her research was stolen by two men before she could properly share the information and now watson and crick are famous for what she spent years studying

Plus she developed ovarian cancer that was most likely caused by radiation from the HUNDREDS of hours spent using x ray crystallography to ascertain the structure. She literally worked herself to death to be a footnote in most genetics textbooks.

While Watson and Crick were not researchers with the best of integrity, I don’t think it’s fair to say Rosalind Franklin discovered the double helix. She perfected a technique for x-ray crystallography in viewing DNA. This lead to her iconic picture. She did not recognize this as the double helix during her investigation. That was Watson and Crick.

Don’t separate the importance of the imaging process from understanding the image itself. Both are incredibly important. Watson and Crick are unfairly praised as the iconic DNA discoverers; however, without imaging and diagnostics, we cannot understand the world.

Rosalind Franklin did not discover the double helix. She built the window looking at it. That’s just as important.

i know but idk

me when i know but idk (via bageutte)

There’s actually a grammar pattern in Mandarin that is essentially this exact sentiment, and it’s one of my favorite expressions that I learned last year.

You can say “Tīng bù dǒng" (聽不懂) or "Kàn bù dǒng" (看不懂) which generally means “I don’t understand” but has a more nuanced meaning: “I hear/see it, but I don’t understand”—or, I know, but idk.

Nothing makes you look more suspicious than randomly laughing while doing science, because you know who else randomly laughs while doing science? Supervillians.

For over 30 years the Forensic Anthropology Centre has used body farms for research and training. 
1.3 acres of land are used to study human decomposition under various circumstances. They study everything from the rate of bacterial decomposition to foreign organisms feeding on the body. All of this information is then used to help forensic anthropologists, pathologists, and crime scene investigators pinpoint time of death among other things.
There are about 5 ‘farms’ of this type in the country. 
You can make arrangements to have your body donated to the farm.
