This is so sad. Women are already discouraged from pursuing science. Treating us like criminals for experimenting isn’t helping.

The Message: Yes, I Have A Thing For Skulls

by Ali Gulec

I’m Ali Gulec, illustrator and co-owner of Ikiiki Design Studio based in Istanbul. I design T-shirt prints for a living, which is a fun job to do but sometimes fast fashion industry can put too many pressures on you. When I feel exhausted, I give a break and do what pleases me most and create pieces for my project “The Message”. I use digital and traditional collage, painting, photography and sometimes all of them in one piece.

Although I illustrate many subjects with a little touch of humor, skulls are my most known and appreciated ones. I believe people like my skulls because the contradictions such as life and death are much more obvious and visible in these pieces. Also, I have observed through the years that, people are excited to see something resembling death doesn’t need to be scary and can be appealing for any person, even for my grandma :). I have seen my Skulls artwork tattooed on so many people from teenagers to seniors, from doctors to musicians and it’s really amazing how they interpret my works adding their personalities.

I made this collage from a selection of doodles I drew while I was talking on the phone over the past 5 years.

Steve Albini e-mail about hating dance music is now a billboard advertising dance music

Legendary producer, engineer and musician Steve Albini—notorious mensch and grouch—does not like electronic dance music, but he also doesn’t care if you use his songs to create your own! Big Black, Shellac, and Rapeman might not seem the prime candidates for a dance beat, but electronic artist Oscar Powell,...

Dudes Love the Rose Gold iPhone So Much They’re Calling It “Bros’ Gold”

Daniel Ives of FBR & Co. said that the rose-gold model was a major selling point and that about 35% of people he spoke with at Apple stores chose a rose gold phone. If you’re curious about what the rose gold iPhone looks like, it looks like pink. You can tell from photos of it in which it is clearly pink.

Tom Brady Is Still Dumb

by Ellie Shechet

Tom Brady, who said earlier this month that a Trump presidency “would be great” because Donald Trump gave him a free hat once and is “a hell of a lot of fun to play golf with,” has since chastised the media for taking his opinions seriously.

man it's like long island (also sorry to everyone who is no longer using oldreader so this doesn't matter but i'm trying to plow through my backlog before jumping ship like the lemming i probably am)

Powerful Before-And-After Portraits Of Premature Babies

by Dovas

preemies, we're hardcore and ugly as fuck. i don't think there are any incubator photos of me sadly

Depending on when they are born, premature babies can face difficult uphill battles. As Quebec-based photographer Red Methot shows in his Les Premas photo series, premature babies often do overcome their many challenges and persevere!

The photo series has people of widely varying ages pose with photos of themselves as premature babies. In most, the trappings of the hospital ICU are still present. Premature babies can be born with under-developed organs, and are usually held in the ICU until their organs have developed fully.

Minimalist Tattoo Art By The Famous JonBoy Who Inked Kendall Jenner

by Dainius

i like how everyone is the "_____ dr woo" now

JonBoy wants to be the East Coast Dr. Woo. This tattoo artist moved from Chicago to New York City five years ago, but his story is anything but normal. JonBoy was exposed to tattoos through his grandfather, who was in the Navy, but he went to school for something totally different: “I went to Seminary, and I was going to be a youth pastor.”

His clients so far include Kendall Jenner and Ireland Baldwin. “For me, it’s more of an honor to get to tattoo you” JonBoy told Refinery29. “Like, if you come to me and say, ‘I want to get a tattoo from you,’ I’m like, ‘Really? You want me to mark your body for life?’ I don’t take that lightly. I take it seriously, whether it’s the biggest tattoo ever or the smallest little dot that you could ever want.”

16-Year-Old Invents Stroller-Wheelchair So Disabled Mom Can Wheel Her Baby Outside

by Dainius

meanwhile putting a clock in a pencil case is some next level shit.

Sharina Jones was shot when she was five years old and lost the use of her legs. Thirty years later, when she was expecting her first child, she began to wonder how she would manage a stroller while in a wheelchair. By chance, Alden Kain, a Detroit high-school student enrolled in a special design class, was paired up with Jones and tasked to invent a wheelchair stroller. After six months of hard work, his prototype was a success.

“It was great to meet her and talk to her about what she wants and doesn’t want,” Kain explained to The Michigan Catholic. “Talking to her was a big help, figuring out the workability of the device, where to put a diaper bag, whether or not she could unhook the stroller and how she can move around in the chair.” In a separate interview with Today, he added, “It was extremely exciting and rewarding to see Sharina using it.”
