NASA Probes Record Sounds In Space – And It’s Terrifying.

Despite what you’ve heard, there are actual sounds in space.

Due to the virtual vacuum in space, it’s not sound like you and I experience it (that being waves pulsing through the air), but there are electromagnetic waves that pulsate at the same wavelength as the sound waves we can hear.

Instruments on several NASA probes including Voyager have recorded these waves and translated them into a sound that we can hear, and they are all kinds of spooky. This is the kind of thing you hear in a movie just before someone opens a door in a dark hallway.

So, take a listen to the true nature of the solar system. And sleep tight.

Anonymous asked: Who are you getting your Ferguson information from? I'm having problems verifying what's actually happening!



That’s actually what’s taking me so long to update some of my posts; not only is the information surfacing slowly about his case specifically, but I make sure to cross reference at least three sources because some people are just blatantly lying to stir shit up.

Also live feeds keep going down and new ones pop back up but I know some of you are sensitive to video, so

Here’s a list of some twitter handles:

Journalists (All of these are either on the ground in Ferguson as I type this or actively covering events in Ferguson, both Brown’s case and the rallies):


Instagram Accounts: (TW: Some of these accounts feature graphic video or images of Ferguson events)

Tumblr Accounts:

I’m sure I forgot a bunch but here’s a start. I’ll update it periodically and reblog. Some of it is compilations from a bunch of sources, some is original content. Disclaimer: I’m not vouching for any other content on any of these blogs/twitters/instagrams or any that may be posted after this list but as of right now, the information regarding Ferguson and discussions taking place about the rallies/police and Mike Brown’s death seems accurate.

if you want to be included on any of these lists, shoot me a message with your web-address and I’ll check it out

You will find everything I’ve posted under tagged/ferguson, tagged/police-brutality or tagged/michael-brown

updated and combined.

My, what beautiful blossoms we have this year. But look, this one’s late. But I’ll bet that when it blooms, it will be the most beautiful of all.

Why are stories important? Because their narratives reflect fundamental truths about our lives. They entertain us, yes, but at their best they illuminate, teach and redefine us. Stories don’t exist outside of societal concerns, they are entirely a part of them: they are the green shoots off of a sturdy limb. So when the stories we validate with attention and praise all happen to grow off of one relatively small branch of a huge, beautiful tree, we are obscuring the reality of the world we all live in. We’re actively avoiding the things that stories do uniquely well. Even worse, by denying light to the other branches of this tree, we’re making it harder for those stories (the stories of the majority of people in the world!) to survive.

if I could burn only one aspect of Moffat’s Who down to the ground and salt the earth behind it, it would be this: “the Doctor lies.” good Christ do I hate the Doctor lies. it’s become a rallying point for folks who like the Doctor as a pseudo-Sherlock, a consulting intergalactic sociopath. it has become shorthand for the Doctor lies compulsively and continually and that’s why the plots don’t make any fucking sense. it has become shorthand for you cannot trust the Doctor. he is the hero of the show, but that same show can’t leave off telling you that if you’ve placed your trust in him, you’re a fool. and people are pleased with this idea? it comforts them in the long watches of the night, to believe now that the Doctor is astonishingly clever, but not particularly good?

burned. salted. the Doctor lies: if I never see that again in a comment thread, justifying something asinine, it’ll be too soon. this rant has been brought to you by the fact that I haven’t had lunch.
