Ask me anything      Whats the Word?   Wanna Battle? (International Pokemon League)

"When I was young there were beatniks. Hippies. Punks. Gangsters. Now you’re a hacktivist. Which I would probably be if I was 20. Shuttin’ down MasterCard. But there’s no look to that lifestyle! Besides just wearing a bad outfit with bad posture. Has WikiLeaks caused a look? No! I’m mad about that. If your kid comes out of the bedroom and says he just shut down the government, it seems to me he should at least have an outfit for that."

The Most Astounding Fact by Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Astrophysicist Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson was asked by a reader of TIME magazine, “What is the most astounding fact you can share with us about the Universe?” This is his answer.

When you take something great, like the musings of the mind of Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, and combine it with something else great, like stunning images of life and wonder on and off of Earth … you get this.

It’s the sort of video that makes you prop your chin up in your hand, with your head tilted just so (yeah, like that), as you stare at your computer screen mumbling things like “Ahhh“ and “Wooahh” and other unintelligible noises that mean “I approve of this, and it makes me feel good.

Watch it once, then twice, then with a friend.

What a beautiful message to wake up to :)

"Opinions took a back seat, opinions were not attractive. This is stuff I remember thinking when I was quite young. At my house you learned to rise above the contending voices, but I recognized early on that that wasn’t attractive on a date. I wasn’t aware of designing myself in high school, but when I got to [college at] Vassar, all of that fell away, because it was just girls and it was the early ’70s and it was the classic consciousness-raising time when people were earnestly talking about ‘What’s a woman? What’s our role in the world? What is our capacity? What is holding us back?’ I felt free. A thing emerged, which was my actual personality and my actual voice. I realized that I was funny, and allowed to be — and allowed to be loud, and obnoxious — and I took full advantage of it. It was an emergence."
