Ooookay gotta study HARD now.
Saw this posted on my facebook this morning and just had to share. It continually amazes me how many people here on tumblr and elsewhere in the world continue to think the answer to racism is more racism…or that racism against white people is somehow “justified” or “doesn’t count as racism.”
Not only do white people think you’re full of shit, but so do your fellow POC.
Watch the video it is really good.
get outta here, birdie!!

I still can’t get over the fact this is a sculpture on the floor and not a car submerged in milk
WHAT IS THAT
whaaaaat is that
THAT’S HOW THEY MAKE CAMO???????
hydrographics/water transfer printing!! They take a design and float it on top of water, so they can dip 3D objects so they get the graphic on all edges.
I like how glasses suggest intelligence instead of broken eyes.
I promise it will be worth it. It’s pretty cool.
I know it’s trendy to fight the system and cry that we are all becoming slaves of technology, but this attitude overlooks that computers and phones are tools for communicating. When someone thinks I’m an idiot smiling at a machine, I’m actually smiling at my girlfriend who is 10000 miles away and whom I would have never met if not for these newfangled electronics. As they say: when the wise man points to the moon, the fool looks at the finger.
This is a topic that I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while now; much credit to this excellent post for bringing it to the front of my brain.

I feel like this is the sort of shit God pulls.
At Aalborg Zoo in Denmark, a Sumatran Tiger cub was born with an umbilical hernia. (This is a condition where the abdominal lining or part of an abdominal organ protrudes from the belly button area.) Veterinarians performed a successful surgery in October and immediately returned the little one to mom. Now the little Tiger is being raised by its mom, growing up strong and healthy.

Geminid Meteor Shower
The annual Geminid meteor shower peaks next week. Sadly, the Moon will be near-full brightening the sky for most of the night causing rates to be lower. However, the Geminids will still put on a good show pretty much anywhere that isn’t overcast, so don’t worry. Southern Hemisphere viewers will see lower rates, with the peak being ~40-60 meteors/hour in some locations, so you won’t be missing out as was the case for the Persieds earlier this year. Use the Fluxtimator to estimate the rate in your location.
Meteors will be visible when the radiant point is above the horizon from your location. The radiant point is in the constellation Gemini (Jupiter will be too, so get your binocs/telescopes), right next to the Orion constellation. You can spot meteors anywhere in the sky and it is not necessary to look towards the radiant point as some may believe. So go out, find somewhere dark, look up and enjoy the show.
The Story of Darcy, the Flying Hedgehog (@darcytheflyinghedgehog)
To tune in to Darcy’s daily poses, be sure to follow her @darcytheflyinghedgehog.
"I want to make Darcy the most famous hedgehog in the world." With this in mind Tokyo Instagrammer Shota Tsukamoto started a unique series of photos of his pet hedgehog, Darcy. Darcy’s account quickly took off in a way Shota never expected and (@darcytheflyinghedgehog) is now one of the most-followed pet accounts on Instagram.
The three-year-old hedgehog takes her name from D’arcy Wretzky, the former bassist of the “The Smashing Pumpkins,” who Shota explains resembles “a pointy, edgy girl.” Despite the origin of her name, Darcy’s friendly, lovable nature shines through in the photos that Shota takes. “Hedgehogs are usually very cautious animals, but that is not the case with Darcy,” he says. She especially finds comfort in her owner’s palms and, once she’s there, she is fast asleep.
Aside from how adorable Darcy is, there is a distinctive artistry in Shota’s photos. “I imagine a page from a children’s picture book,” explains Shota. “I want (@darcytheflyinghedgehog) to be a surrealistic story and I even want people to question whether or not Darcy really exists in real life.” For example, his favorite shot of Darcy is of her sitting face-to-face with a skull object. “No matter how many times I look back at this shot, I can never seem to imagine what the two are talking about,” he says. He also does not add captions to his photos because he wants to encourage people to come up with their own stories about Darcy.
Want to take charming photos and videos of your pet? Here are some of Shota’s tips:
Camera iPhone 4s, iPhones 5s
- Think about the composition first. Then find props that would perfectly match that composition
- Use consecutive shooting to make sure that you capture the best moments
- Blow air on it, give it snacks or make it sleepy to bring out different expressions
- Try not to force a pose on your pet. The more unexpected its actions and expressions are, the better the outcomes are
Editing Shota likes to use the Camera+ app. The app allows for consecutive shooting, which is essential to his work. He also uses the light-tone filter of this app to better capture Darcy’s soft pink skin, because he thinks that the native iPhone cameras tend to give off a yellowy color in the resulting images.
