I know shit about Game of Thrones but I got so much fucking life from this
“Busk” is a documentary short by Icarus that explores the lives of five musicians making their living by performing on the streets and subway stations of New York City. Released through Vimeo in 2013, the doc follows a diverse group of performers, including Japanese beatboxer Reo Matsumoto, bluegrass banjo player Morgan O’Kane and bucket drummer Anthony Smith-Little.
If I had to imagine the places where gender studies and feminism diverged, this might be one of them.

The Northwest has islands for sale. Now, I know what you’re thinking—“Oregon has islands?” Yes, indeed. It’s every nature-loving hermit’s dream: a private island in the Pacific Northwest. A rugged, pine-soaked landscape to surround a tasteful two-story cabin with modern amenities. A lone dock pokes into the river, free from tourists with inflatable kayaks and digital cameras commenting on the cute baby ducks. Your boat sits silent in the lapping water while you sit on your deck deciding whether to go into town tonight, or just stay by the fire pit with a cold beer, counting the stars. It’s a beautiful life—if you have over a million dollars to kill.
Here are four of Oregon and Washington’s most prized private island real estates. The fantasy is free—the land is not.
Location: Puget Sound, Washington (near Gig Harbor)
Size: 16 acres
For those that don’t want the responsibility of owning a whole island, this historic parcel may be the answer. Tanglewood supports four homes and a community lodge (complete with swimming pool). The available eighteenth century house has been completely remodeled, and sits nestled in the trees, evoking the intimate feel of a private island, but with the convenience of knocking on a neighbor’s door because you forgot to buy toilet paper. (And you really don’t want to fire up the boat just for a run to Fred Meyer.) Situated near Seattle and Tacoma, this is the perfect retreat from big city living—without having to leave the big city.
Location: Newport, Oregon
Size: 1.5 acres
Located on the Yaquina River, this private island paradise comes with an elegantly rustic, fully-furnished, five-bedroom home, apple trees and the occasional deer. It includes a house built for entertaining, sporting a large, open kitchen with granite countertops, and a back patio complete with fire pit where guests can cook whatever creature they caught off the dock that day. A trip to the mainland will take five minutes depending on what kind of fancy boat you have to match your dapper new home, and is only six minutes to the open ocean—which makes this the perfect wealthy pirate hideout.
Location: Roseburg, Oregon
Size: 15 acres
This partially developed island is ripe with potential: it offers lush flora, making it the perfect space to open a botanical garden; it’s secluded enough for a small, private resort; and it comes with a plethora of local fauna (awkwardly, no elk), making it a shoe-in for a wildlife reserve and educational center. It seems silly to keep this island all to yourself. In addition to the island, it comes with 10 acres of water rights, an adjacent lot for building a bridge to shore, and a 2.5 acre lot, presumably for parking. It already has a home and a farmhouse, orchards and field crops—all you have to do is decide whether you want to run an island fairground or a relaxed fishing lodge.
Location: 9 miles from Anacortes
Size: 10 acres
This undeveloped wild land has 3,800 feet of water front. Thick pines give way to stony outcroppings where you’ll enjoy 365-degree views of landmarks such as Mt. Baker, the Olympics and neighboring islands. The end of the island slopes down to a narrow white sand beach—perfect for sunbathing or snorkeling—while the rest of the property is outlined by jutting sea cliffs. The land is zoned for a home, but is currently without power, access to fresh water or sanitation services. (Also, no rams.) But why should that matter? You just bought a three-million dollar island. Build a tree house a la Swiss Family Robinson and call it a day.
Fuck your cherry blossoms

What do you think you get if you add 1+2+3+4+5+... all the way on up to infinity? Probably a massively huge number, right? Nope. You get a small negative number:
This is, by a wide margin, the most noodle-bending counterintuitive thing I have ever seen. Mathematician Leonard Euler actually proved this result in 1735, but the result was only made rigorous later and now physicists have been seeing this result actually show up in nature. Amazing.

Well this is a fascinating read.
Many hearing people think sign language is universal, but it is not. Hill, who was born deaf, studied in Italy on a Fulbright and speaks Italian, as well as ASL, Italian SL, and Black ASL.
American Sign Language developed based on the French sign language that Thomas Gallaudet learned from Clerc, so American and French signers understand one another better than British and American signers do, for example.
Hill produced a chart that showed how the schools spread across the country. But the first school for black deaf children in the South… didn’t open until 1867, in North Carolina. Southern schools remained segregated until well after Brown v. Board of Education, in 1954… So it is not surprising that deaf African-Americans developed and were taught their own version of ASL.

HAVE YOU EVER FUCKING SEEN the Hamburger Helper? That shit is terrifying. What’s worse than that? The sodium content. Get off the salt lick and grub on some real food.
Seriously someone in HH marketing should be fired.
TUCSON TEMPEH PASTA
1 block tempeh (~8 oz.)
1 yellow onion
1 bell pepper
3-4 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon olive oil
2-3 teaspoons soy sauce or tamari
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 ½ teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon liquid smoke (It is near the BBQ sauce at the store I swear. You haven’t even looked yet so stop fucking complaining.)
14 ounce can of tomatoes (make sure you don’t buy some brand full of salt)
1 pound of pasta (whole wheat, rice, quinoa, whatever the fuck you want)
juice of 1 lemon
1 cup of green peas or other vegetable
Optional: add some steamed broccoli, spinach, roasted sweet potatoes, whatever you got that you need to use up.
Cook the pasta how the box tells you to. You got this.
Chop up the onion, bell pepper, and carrots. Mince the garlic cloves up nice and small. Heat up the oil over a medium heat in a big skillet or a wok. Crumble the tempeh into little pieces with your hands and toss into the skillet. Add the veggies and cook them until the onion begins to look all golden and the tempeh bits start to brown. Add the soy sauce, spices, and garlic and cook them for about a minute. Your place should smell fucking awesome by now. You’re welcome. Now add the liquid smoke and tomatoes and let the mixture start to bubble a little. Let this all stew together for a minute or two.
Add the cooked pasta, lemon juice, and any additional veggies you picked out to the tomato mixture. Mix everything together until the pasta is nice and coated. Add more spices if you think it needs it. I like to serve mine topped with red onion, jalapenos, and cilantro but you add your favorite shit.
Serves 4-6 people as a meal (or one bad mother fucker with leftovers)
Want to play a game of Tic-Tac-Toe that's genuinely challenging and hard? Try "Ultimate Tic-Tac-Toe," in which each square is made up of another, smaller Tic-Tac-Toe board, and to win the square you have to win its mini-game. Ben Orlin says he discovered the game on a mathematicians' picnic, and he explains a wrinkle on the rules:
You don’t get to pick which of the nine boards to play on. That’s determined by your opponent’s previous move. Whichever square he picks, that’s the board you must play in next. (And whichever square you pick will determine which board he plays on next.)...
This lends the game a strategic element. You can’t just focus on the little board. You’ve got to consider where your move will send your opponent, and where his next move will send you, and so on.
The resulting scenarios look bizarre. Players seem to move randomly, missing easy two- and three-in-a-rows. But there’s a method to the madness – they’re thinking ahead to future moves, wary of setting up their opponent on prime real estate. It is, in short, vastly more interesting than regular tic-tac-toe.
what's the deal with tOR and this game? did you all own 3ds's before it came out? why?
You can’t fool me, Animal Crossing. I bought the original and played it, and it was fun, and then boring, so I turned it off. Then I bought the Nintendo DS version and I was like “Wait, this is the exact same game.” Then I bought the Wii version and it was also exactly the same. Maybe the animals talked more. I don’t remember. All I know is that if I want to pick fruit for hours and go in debt to buy a house I can do that in real life.
The new one supposedly has new features, which I’m guessing amount to “there’s more fruit to pick” and “if you pick fruit for 50 hours in a row you can get a new couch.”
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me…. four times… We won’t be fooled again.
Hawk moths may be jamming bat sonar signals by rubbing their genitals.
The behaviour, reported in Biology Letters on 3 July, creates an ultrasonic noise that could be used to scare off an attacking bat and to jam the bat's sonar.

This is charming, beautiful little story brought a tear to my eye. I can’t imagine a more fitting place for that brilliant man’s words.
