8 Minutes of the Earth’s Rotation
How I wish our planet’s movement was this apparent while staring at the night sky. It could probably make a lot more people realize just how tiny we are compared to this vast unexplored galaxy above our heads.

8 Minutes of the Earth’s Rotation

How I wish our planet’s movement was this apparent while staring at the night sky. It could probably make a lot more people realize just how tiny we are compared to this vast unexplored galaxy above our heads.

Imagine the Brigadier arriving at UNIT HQ one day to discover that all of his employees are sporting false mustaches.

Jo, sporting a particularly grand sandy mustache, greets the Brig with a cheery “Good morning!” The Brig barely has time to shake his head at her when he hears the sound of a scuffle and sees Benton and Yates attempting to force a particularly silly silver ‘stache onto the upper lip of an unwilling Doctor.

You know this had to have happened.

This is a work of art. Now someone just needs to draw it.

No, this wasn’t just a one-time occurence.

This happened frequently.

Like, it became a bit of a thing… The Brig actually got kinda used to it.

But then one day they realised it had all gone to far, when…

Turlough’s distinctive eyebrows were produced by applying tuna to Mark Strickson’s forehead, and letting JNT’s cat lick it away.

And letting JNT lick it away.

I have the power of life and death over all of you! 

I’ve just watched The Red Wedding.

I am not okay.

I can’t remember which class I heard it but I once heard a presentation that was so jarring at first and eventually became one of the most romantic stories I was ever told and one of the reasons why I take great offense to people who believe science is without romance or spirituality.

If I remember correctly the presentation started off with, ”What’s the most important thing in human biology? The ocean.”

Quite a hook. The lecturer went on to explain that early life was of course aquatic and once multicellularism arose eukaryotic life started evolving systems that were more and more complex. However at every stage chemical transport was still largely dependent on saltwater bathing the cells of the organism at all times. Additionally seawater is slightly alkaline so it acts as a buffer that maintains protein in a way that pure water cannot.

So how did we move to land and how could Homo sapiens have appeared? The evolution of circulatory systems and blood. You see, blood serves the purposes that the saltwater did when it came to supporting cellular transport and stability. The beautiful and romantic thing the lecturer suggested is that we carry our evolutionary history wherever we go.

The blood in your veins is your body’s remembrance of the sea from which we all came.

Behold! The field in which I grow my fucks. Lay thine eyes upon it and see that it is barren.

 #ahahhhaha #some 19-year-old dude just tried to mansplain to me about books #according to him JK Rowling used storytelling techniques taken from George RR Martin #and Harry Potter was inspired by A Song of Ice and Fire #haha #I don’t think so boy #or else there would have been a lot more incest in Harry Potter #nice try dude (via thesilverdevastation)
Oh dear goddess.
Did you try mentioning that JK started writing her series before George RR started writing his?

I tried lots of things, but he was so convinced of his own innate superiority that it didn’t even register.
