Breaking News: Minutes ago in the United Nations Human Rights Council meeting, only the USA votes to disregard international law in the Israeli/Palestinian conflict ~ Resolution #S21L1

Is this another League of Nations where nobody is willing to do anything ‘till is too late again? What are the European countries [the majority] and the US doing?

I must say I find that girl utterly delightful. Flat as a board, enormous birthmark in the shape of Mexico over half her face, sweating for hours on end in that sweltering kitchen while Mendl (genius though he is) looms over her like a hulking gorilla - yet without question, without fail, always, and invariably: she’s exceedingly lovely. Why? Because of her purity.

X-ray of a ballet dancer’s feet 
The ankle joint connects the lower leg to the foot and, in dance, allows for pointing the toe (plantar flexion) and flexing the foot during plié (dorsiflexion). The ankle also allows for inversion and eversion, producing turn-in and turn-out, respectively. The 26 bones in the foot work in concert with ligamentous support and muscular force to create three separate arches, critical for shock absorption during jumps. Structurally, the ideal foot for ballet is considered to be a flexible “square foot”, which has equal-length first and second toes.Read more: http://bit.ly/W3Zaoq

"There are people who say, ‘I’ll never use this math, these trig identities’ from 10th or 11th grade, or maybe you never learned them.
Here’s the catch: whether or not you ever again use the math that you learned in school, the act of having learned the math established a wiring in your brain that didn’t exist before.
And it’s the wiring in your brain that makes you the problem solver… even if you don’t want to become a scientist, the minimum you should ask of yourself –demand of yourself– is that you become scientifically literate… and mathematically literate.
Because therein are the engines of problem solving in the world."

Introducing the Social Intelligence Test! From what I can tell, it’s sponsored by Harvard and it’s rather interesting. The basis is you look at pictures of people going through different emotions and decide what emotion they’re feeling. The trick is, you can only see their eyes.

How well can you read people? I never thought I was good at it, but I scored rather high on this test. It was a very interesting experience! I highly recommend taking this!

So I’ve seen this post going around in link form, which isn’t super useful to anyone who wants to read it, so I put it up in photo form. Useful for anyone who doesn’t have xkit. :3 Definitely like and reblog the OP, but if it shows up as a link, this helps. :3

I fixed the link for the OP so it works now :)

In exploration, there need to be the set of people who have no rules, and they are going into the frontier.

Particle Fever, fascinating new documentary about the discovery of the Higgs boson, now available on iTunes.

I watched this documentary a few days ago, and I almost cried because of the excitement that the people involved felt. It makes you feel sad and happy and over the world along side with those physicists.
