foolish mistakes, but whatever, they are all mine.
I am all the wrong things - fat ,middle aged, bisexual, disabled, loud and I won't go away. My hobby is seeing how many years I can add to my collection before I die.
Posting will be random but may contain fat acceptance, wool, and cats, lagomorphs and corvids in no particular order. Posting may also be sporadic as I have ME/CFS and a bunch of other stuff that makes me tired and some times crabby.

my 12 yo homeschooled daughter did this. She is a budding artist and is ADHD and has Aspergers.
She loves science and has loved watching the NASA exploration of Mars.
Drawing and art is her passion, and how she wants to make a living when she grows up.
She calls it “Lonely Curiosity”
It is her artist interpretation of how the Sun is going to block Mars and Earth for the month of April, and how NASA won’t be able to communicate with the Curiosity Rover for the whole month.
Please, if you like this… reblog it, and let’s see if we can get NASA to take notice, and maybe also get it on the radar of tumblr.
As per request.
This is lovely.
I couldn’t love this more.
I shared this with my friend who works at NASA Ames Research! Erin works on meteorological payload projects for Mars landers. No guarantee this lovely art will get much beyond her, but we can honestly say that it made it to a engineer who works for NASA!
sometimes i think about how mind-bogglingly huge the universe is and-
Hubble LITERALLY saw the aftermath of the big bang right there. LITERALLY. Like, that galaxy that shouldn’t exist thanks to modern physics and its laws? It did exist, trillions of years ago. It probably doesn’t exist anymore. HUBBLE IS A TIME MACHINE. It can see into the past and tell us what has come before.
ALL THANKS TO SCIENCE!
I think about the scope of the universe and how light and distance affect time and it gets so overwhelming I cry. Part of it is because it makes me feel like my life is so small and that earth is this lonely little planet full of people who are (on the whole) desperate to know more about the whys and hows of things.
I get ridiculously sad when I think about how the mars rover is going to stay there and never come back to earth (tears already) and that it could very well develop ai on its own and feel so abandoned.
Part of it is because it makes me realize that my life on earth is important and precious and that I need to make the best of what I have.
And i’m dead sober. If I think about these things when i’m high I just sob and choke out unintelligible sounds.
I have no words to express the magnificence of this.
Sharks get a bad rap for being dangerous predators that are constantly devouring humans, but there is a whole world of things out there that will kill before a shark does. Here are just a few of those things.
You’re three times more likely to be killed by fatness then lightning…
Look I’m going to shout here, so be prepared: OBESITY HAS NEVER KILLED ANYONE BECAUSE IT’S NOT A DISEASE.
*ahem* I get a bit tetchy about this, becausefacts, You may now go about your normal business.
“How can a three-pound mass of jelly that you can hold in your palm imagine angels, contemplate the meaning of infinity, and even question its own place in the cosmos? Especially awe inspiring is the fact that any single brain, including yours, is made up of atoms that were forged in the hearts of countless, far-flung stars billions of years ago. These particles drifted for eons and light-years until gravity and change brought them together here, now. These atoms now form a conglomerate- your brain- that can not only ponder the very stars that gave it birth but can also think about its own ability to think and wonder about its own ability to wonder. With the arrival of humans, it has been said, the universe has suddenly become conscious of itself. This, truly, it the greatest mystery of all.” ― V.S. Ramachandran, The Tell-Tale Brain: A Neuroscientist’s Quest for What Makes Us Human
Here is a Science fair project presented by a girl in a secondary school in Sussex . In it she took filtered water and divided it into two parts. The first part she heated to boiling in a pan on the stove, and the second part she heated to boiling in a microwave. Then after cooling she used the water to water two identical plants to see if there would be any difference in the growth between the normal boiled water and the water boiled in a microwave. She was thinking that the structure or energy of the water may be compromised by microwave. As it turned out, even she was amazed at the difference, after the experiment which was repeated by her class mates a number of times and had the same result.
It has been known for some years that the problem with microwaved anything is not the radiation people used to worry about, it’s how it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it.
Microwaves don’t work different ways on different substances. Whatever you put into the microwave suffers the same destructive process. Microwaves agitate the molecules to move faster and faster. This movement causes friction which denatures the original make-up of the substance. It results in destroyed vitamins, minerals, proteins and generates the new stuff called radiolytic compounds, things that are not found in nature.
So the body wraps it in fat cells to protect itself from the dead food or it eliminates it fast. Think of all the Mothers heating up milk in these ‘Safe’ appliances. What about the nurse in Canada that warmed up blood for a transfusion patient and accidentally killed him when the blood went in dead. But the makers say it’s safe. But proof is in the pictures of living plants dying!
Microwaves are banned in Russia…
Please be wary of microwaves my followers… My sister had Leukemia when she was three and it is believed that microwaved milk had a big part to do with it.
“In this episode of the podcast, Bruce Hood talks about his book The Self Illusion and how ideas of materialism and dualism are being explored by modern science. Hood is a superstar of psychology and the Director of the Bristol Cognitive Development Centre in the Experimental Psychology Department at the University of Bristol. I love this interview, especially the part where he talks about consciousness within an artificial intelligence.”
