If you could see all the known asteroids, what would the sky look like?

by Mark Frauenfelder

Scott Manley entered data for all the known asteroids near the Earth and made a cool 360 video of them.

I took all the asteroids near the Earth, calculate their positions and place them on a virtual Sky sphere. You can pan the view around, use a smartphone or tablet as a virtual window, or a Cardboard compatible viewer to see this the way it's intended.

A Library That Plummets into an Abyss by Susanna Hesselberg for Sculpture by the Sea

by Christopher Jobson

For her entry into the biannual Sculpture by the Sea in Aarhus, Denmark, Swedish artist Susanna Hesselberg installed this ominous library that plumments into the ground like a mining shaft. While visually arresting, the piece has a somewhat somber intention. Titled “When My Father Died It Was Like a Whole Library Had Burned Down,” the artwork makes reference to lyrics from Laurie Anderson’s song World Without End. The piece joins an additional 55 sculptures on display right now at the 2015 Sculpture by the Sea through July 5, 2015. (via Hyperallergic)

Seeing the crazy movement of guitar strings in real time is so damn cool

by Casey Chan on Sploid, shared by Chris Mills to Gizmodo

This is wild. When cameras try to capture guitar strings being played, they see wavelength-type movements from each string because of the camera’s rolling shutter effect. But it can only be seen on camera, the wild wiggly effect is totally blind to the naked eye. Not anymore! This Wobble Strings project recreates a camera’s rolling shutter effect to humans in real time through sweep line projection. It’s wild.

"Despite what you may believe, you can disappoint people and still be good enough. You can make..."

“Despite what you may believe, you can disappoint people and still be good enough. You can make mistakes and still be capable and talented. You can let people down and still be worthwhile and deserving of love. Everyone has disappointed someone they care about. Everyone messes up, lets people down, and makes mistakes. Not because we’re inadequate or fundamentally inept, but because we’re imperfect and fundamentally human. Expecting anything different is setting yourself up for failure.”

There Will Be Another Back to the Future Over Robert Zemeckis' Dead Body

by Katharine Trendacosta

Robert Zemeckis is taking a stand for all of us: No remake, reboot, retool, re-anythinging of Back to the Future. Not while he’s alive. And, he hopes, not after, either.

GOP Hypocrisy: screw as I say, not as I screw

This is probably my biggest problem with conservatives (aside from the racism, xenophobia, sexism, and homophobia): the fact that they spend all their time lecturing the rest of us on morality and yet can’t live up to their own ridiculous standards.

Bristol Palin having kids, whether she’s married or not? Don’t give a fuck. Bristol Palin having kids out of wedlock when both she and her mother are outspoken advocates for abstinence and shaming those who dare to view sex as anything more than a baby factory? Not cool.

I spent three weeks in a mental hospital and what I discovered there I feel like should be put into words.

we are not who you think we are.

the boy with turrets told the funniest jokes

the girl who raked her nails up and down her skin could create the most exquisite drawings

the girl who abused drugs had the wisest soul

the boy with schizophrenia had the biggest heart

the girl who tried to kill herself told the boy with insomnia stories to help lure him to sleep

the boy who wanted to kill himself had the deepest passion for cooking

the girl with slits and scars all over her body dried my tears and told me I was beautiful

the boy with anger issues gave the warmest hugs

the girl with bulimia told everyone every day that they looked beautiful in their bodies

the boy who was a compulsive liar told us that he wanted us all to get better, and that he was for once telling the truth

the girl who almost drank herself to death stood up for anyone that felt they were feeling bullied

the boy with social anxiety made sure nobody sat alone at meals

we are not who you think we are.

*slams reblog button*

Actual chills

Psychiatric hospitals have the most stigma.

God this is beautiful

I’m gonna print this out and read it day after day. We’re real people. We are. And we are so much more than our issues.

This is so fucking true. When I got sent to the psychatric ward, they were the kindest most brilliant people I ever met. But the doctors treated us like monsters, prisoners.

reminder series: bleak yet comforting thoughts.

i specifically chose animals that are (or believed to be) extinct due to human influence: thylacine, great auk, baiji, west african black rhino, golden toad, dodo, passenger pigeon, and quagga. there are many other species i could have included. the plants are also based on extinct species, but i found much less information about extinct plants, unfortunately.

the text doesn’t necessarily relate to each animal or their extinction. it’s all basically the same idea: let’s all be nice to each other, because today, the universe is vast and incomprehensible, we are all suffering, we are all going to die, and we’re all in this together. for today.

i’m busy for a couple weeks with conventions, but after that i’m considering a companion series with ancient extinct animals, so feel free to send me your favorites :)
