i am so mentally exhausted that i am standing in front of this cheese, and have been, just staring.

it was only when the word “swiss” echoed in my mind, at first faintly like a whisper, then louder like a drum, until i finally blurted the word “swiss” out loud, that i realized i’m standing here confused by all this cheese.

i may need a day off.

also, i felt the need to tumbl this while continuing to stand here. my decision making functions are so beautifully borked.

thingstolovefor:

This is one of those stories that you will not see on TV. A black guy risks his life not while drug dealing or a hold-up, but protecting unfamiliar women from rape. Going alone against group of drunk men who have certain plans for the night - you should have balls for that.

So much respect. Really a true example that there is still faith in good people. #Love it!

He is lucky to be alive.

A few years ago Planting Peace bought a house across from the Westboro Baptist Church and painted it rainbow colours.

Last year a little girl told them how wonderful it would be for them to have a house painted in the transgender colours, so she would also feel safer, accepted and represented in her neighbourhood.

Today it’s finally happening. They are painting the neighbouring house the colours of the transgender flag. Just look at that smile!

#Love it!

Electrostatic sheets promise super-light exoskeletons

Of all the reasons exoskeletons aren't widespread, weight is one of the biggest. Even the slickest designs still tend to need bulky machinery. Not at Carnegie Mellon University, however -- its researchers have developed an exoskeleton clutch mechan...
