Remember when we first moved in together? The piano took up the living room.You’d play me boogie woogie, I played you love songs. You’d say we’re playing house, now you still say we are.
How do couples like this actually exist? I’m seriously asking. Is her Etsy store doing really well or something? Is his career as a self-taught graphic designer/musician who makes band posters for local bands really taking off lately?
*I don’t actually know if she has an Etsy store, or what he does for a living. But they kinda look like they do those things, right?
nothing is ever what it seems.
and the grass is always greener.
maybe they are buried in loans…
or trust funds…
“I’ve always wanted to become an astronautical engineer, but I’m horrible at math, but I’ve got lots of passion. Can this dream be a reality and where can I start?”
“You don’t have to be the best mathematician in your class, you don’t have to be a wiz. It takes all types to do science. And any stereotype just won’t work. If you’re interested, do it.”
- Lawrence Krauss at the Storytelling of Science at ASU
Math is the language of science and the universe. To be a scientist, you don’t have to be the most articulate and poetic. You just have to be fluent.
While grocery shopping, most of us have picked up the habit of bagging our vegetables after we gather them. Maybe your mom did it, maybe your dad or your grandma does but I am here to tell you, you can put down the plastic bags and you no longer have to be a victim of this unnecessary behavior.
The non-bagging of produce has been one habit I picked up from my Buy Nothing New Year that I am exceptionally proud of. Why? I am proud of changing this habit because before my year dedicated to be a conscious consumer, I had NO IDEA how wasteful I was being. Most of us don’t. It wasn’t until I was shopping with a friend and she gently pointed out that those three apples I had just picked up didn’t require a plastic container unto themselves. Instead, they were safely entering a confined space (the shopping cart) and were destined to end up in a bag at the end of my shopping experience. Three apples don’t need to be bagged x 2. It’s basic yet profound.
I never bag anything. it’s a really weird practice that I have never understood.
PLEASE PASS THIS ON!
I want to make sure every one knows about this and what it can do to your pets
this is what has happened to my sisters cat after she wore a hartz flea and tick collar and now has a burn like wound on her neck. please pass this on and do not buy hartz’s products! they use poison in their products pets have died because of this!!
Yes this is my cat she is doing fine at the moment but I’m so sorry for the people who’s pets are not so lucky
oh my god
PLEASE REBLOG THIS PEOPLE
Boosting, because my cat went through this, and now I know what caused it.
I can’t decide what’s funnier, the dog, or the guy that’s dying of laughter in the background
I wouldn’t have lost my shit so hard if the guy in the background wasn’t so obviously dying
the guy laughing makes the video.
Long Term Exposure of Mating Gold Fireflies
Japanese photographer Yuki Karo goes to various places around Maniwa and Okayama Prefectures in Japan and uses long exposure to capture some stunning shots of mating gold fireflies.
i keep seeing things that i reblogged or blogged years ago popping on my dash. just follow me everyone!!
i lurve this though
How incredible would it be if every building in the city had gardens on their exterior walls
These vegetated surfaces don’t just look pretty. They have other benefits as well, including cooling city blocks, reducing loud noises, and improving a building’s energy efficiency.What’s more, a recent modeling study shows that green walls can potentially reduce large amounts of air pollution in what’s called a “street canyon,” or the corridor between tall buildings.
For the study, Thomas Pugh, a biogeochemist at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, and his colleagues created a computer model of a green wall with generic vegetation in a Western European city. Then they recorded chemical reactions based on a variety of factors, such as wind speed and building placement.
The simulation revealed a clear pattern: A green wall in a street canyon trapped or absorbed large amounts of nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter—both pollutants harmful to people, said Pugh. Compared with reducing emissions from cars, little attention has been focused on how to trap or take up more of the pollutants, added Pugh, whose study was published last year in the journal Environmental Science & Technology.
That’s why the green-wall study is “putting forward an alternative solution that might allow [governments] to improve air quality in these problem hot spots,” he said.Compared with reducing emissions from cars, little attention has been focused on how to trap or take up more of the pollutants, added Pugh, whose study was published last year in the journal Environmental Science & Technology.
