LOOK AT THIS BEAUTIFUL LITTLE THING OH MY GOD

Pretty sure that cat is using its magical powers to turn the plants around itself orange for camouflage. Yup, that’s it.

They say Aslan is on the move.

it’s the color of a fucking nacho cheese dorito

There is so much to see, so many creatures to meet, so much love to give. There are new roads to find, new skies to dance beneath, new memories to build. Now is the time to live the life you have always wanted to live. Now. Now. (at Scratchgravel Hills)

Happy Birthday, Jessica Williams!

Jessica joined The Daily Show with Jon Stewart in 2012 at the tender age of 22, making her the show’s youngest cast member ever as well as its first black female correspondent.

“It’s impossible to be perfect, and you won’t do a good job if you’re too focused on proving yourself to others. Instead, I try to envision myself succeeding in whatever I’m doing.”

How can I get down?

Surfing in the Clouds with @hisarahlee

For more of Sarah Lee’s atmospheric shots underwater and above, follow @hisarahlee.

“Duck diving”—the act of riding waves beneath the surf—has found a home in the incredible, ethereal photos by Hawai’i Instagrammer Sarah Lee (@hisarahlee). “One day I was out body-surfing and I saw the way the waves broke like this cool cloud in the sky, but underwater,” she says. “I thought, ‘the closest thing to flying could be diving under the waves.’”

Most of Sarah’s photos feature other female aquatic athletes, who are also her close friends. In part, she sees her subjects as extensions of herself. Growing up in Hawai’i, Sarah spent almost every moment in the water.

“The ocean is a force of nature you cannot control. That’s what I’ve enjoyed most about it,” she says. “The shot is always different.”

relict-hominid asked: re: chromophobia... of course these chromophobes idolized a Greek/Roman past full of cool white marble.... which we've since discovered was actually a gaudily painted riot of color!

OMG!!! I FORGET PEOPLE DON’T KNOW THIS!

Yes, all those aloof, “pure” white statues from Ancient Greece?

They actually looked like this:

Vinzenz Brinkmann, much to the apparent chagrin of Westerners everywhere, used ultraviolet light to reveal the original paint schemes of these statues that the millennia had washed away.

And to underscore the Chromophobia?

Check out this graphic that i09 made for their leading image for this story:

You can check out a video here to learn more about the methods used to discover the original paint schemes of these statues and reliefs.

We either live free or we die here.

A Palestinian in Gaza, from this interview with BBC (quote begins at 2 minutes)

Extended quote:

Palestinian man: “We either live free or we die here.”

Interviewer: “What about the argument that if Hamas stopped firing rockets into Israel—”

Palestinian man: “No, no, this is not an argument. We have lived under blockade for the last seven years. We have been deprived for the last seven years. Don’t talk to me about rockets that is so tiny small. Look at this! [motioning to rubble of a destroyed neighborhood] This is a nonsense argument. We didn’t start it, they started it. In the 2008 agreement they fulfilled nothing. 2012 agreement, they fulfilled nothing. Why should we believe this time the ceasefire when they say let’s negotiate? Negotiating with the Israelis is a waste of time.”

Medievalpoc Presents: History of POC in Math and Science Week, 8-3-14 through 8-9-14!

Medievalpoc’s first Patreon Milestone Goal has been reached, and the History of POC in Math and Science Week is happening soon! This all-new themed week will focus on the contribution of people of color to the fields of mathematics, science, physics, medicine, natural philosophy, and much, much more!

There will be a focus on primary documents with interactive elements, visual and documentary evidence, innovators and their biographies, and notable personages of color from the Islamic Golden Age, Medieval Europe, African Empires and Universities, Asian images and texts, and discussion about early modern globalization regarding how this knowledge traveled.

If you have an article, image, document, or commentary you would like to submit, here’s your chance to weigh in on this topic! Please use the “Math and Science Week” and any other relevant tags for your submission, and I look forward to hearing about your favorite mathematicians and scientists of color!
