Do also remind them that in the books, Katniss was described with olive skin and long black hair, and the Seam descriptor was consistently used as an indicator of an oppressed ethnic group, making Katniss a woman of color despite the movie casting her as Jennifer Lawrence, and in fact flat-out refusing to allow any actresses of color to audition despite requests from organizations such as Racebending, and that the books in general had a racial dynamic that the movies just plain didn’t have.
This is the best thing ever.
Finally! A black hole that you can visit and survive!
Want a trip through a black hole without having to experience that pesky death? You’re in luck. There’s a special kind of black hole that’s not just survivable, but might get you to another time, or another universe.
Black holes are, traditionally, the scariest things in the universe. Huge, mysterious, inescapable, they wander through the universe and eat everything that gets too close. “Too close” is defined by their event horizon. This is the point at which they go dark, because it requires so much energy to escape them that not even light can get away. Since not even a photon can cross the barrier, no event that happens inside the horizon can ever have an effect on people outside.
Unless, something very odd was going on in the center of the black hole. Most black holes spin - this is something that was discovered way back in the 1960s by physicist Roy Kerr. It wasn’t exactly a shock, because most of the material that collapses into a black hole was already spinning. Sometimes, however, the spin on Kerr black holes goes a little above and beyond. Ever spun a glass of water, or soda bottle, so that the liquid inside swirls? Sometimes, if you spin it enough, the liquid actually parts, leaving a clear center and a spinning ring of water around it. The same kind of thing can happen in Kerr black holes. Instead of a singularity at the center, there’s a ring. And you can go through the open portion of that ring without touching the gravitational crush.
What’s on the other side? A lot of people have wondered. Some people think that these kind of black holes might be our key to time travel. They might be wormholes that let us hop between different points of the universe. Or they might be portals to different universes entirely. First we’ll have to find a few, and then we’ll need a few volunteers to go through. Preferably ones that haven’t seen Event Horizon.

IF THAT AIN’T SPELL WORTHY I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS
NAT IF YOU DON’T TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS I WILL BE DISAPPOINTED
yeah it’s called a wormhole or an einstein-rosen bridge
I was just watching The Impossible Planet a few hours ago, this is really cool.
1.) The girl practiced safe sex and used condoms. SMART. AS. FUCK.
2.) I’ve seen this reblogged with notes calling her a “whore” and a “skank”. Fuck that noise. Over half the girls on tumblr will, or have, sucked the dick of a guy they just met, only hung out with a few times, or barely know, and then stress because he hasn’t called them back or he’s treating them like shit. Meanwhile the same girls go to work at a minimum wage job where they don’t even make $920 in 3 months, much less a day.
Good for this chick. She’s on her hustle and I ain’t mad at her. Make that money, girl!
you go girl
suck them dicks
achieve your dreams
Damn, I would totes suck two dicks a day for 1000$
I COULD ACTUALLY AFFORD RENT IN NY
Debunking myths is one of those things that us skeptics are supposed to do, right? Okay then… (my triskaidekaphilia isn’t showing, is it?) 1. Trans women are just really, really, REALLY gay. This…
So there’s this disgusting group on Facebook called ‘Animals Smoking Durrys’ (a durry is Australian slang for cigarette or joint).
It depicts several images of animals being forced against their will to partake of tobacco and marijuana cigarettes. Cigarette smoke has been proven to kill humans, who’s lungs are much larger and more robust than that of a cat or dog. People who force a defenceless animal to inhale this toxic material are no different to those who mutilate, traumatise, or purposely set fire to them.
This page needs to be stopped, and Facebook have been less than helpful with my attempts to shut it down. I need everyone’s help to get these disgusting depictions taken offline. Please click the link below and report this page, as well as any of the posts that are particularly distasteful. Facebook won’t listen to one voice, but they will listen to many. Please share this, and report the page.
