Katie Mack: MASSIVE amount of information in this kind of signal for fundamental physics. So far all fully consistent with general relativity. #GW170817

Still my favorite story from the Lord of the Rings set: Viggo Mortensen bonded so much with the horse he rode in the movies that after filming was over he bought it from its owner. If that doesn’t warm your heart I don’t know what could.

don’t forget that he also bought arwen’s horse for her stunt rider when she couldn’t afford it awww

#also don’t forget that for the rohirrim they put a call out for locals #bring a horse show us you can ride it and get a part in the battle scenes #and one women went out roped a wild horse and rode for a few days to set #and got to be a rider of rohan

also sort of relevant viggo also bought the horse that costarred with him in the movie hidalgo and subsequently took the horse (tj) with him to the red carpet premier. 

Also most of the Riders of Rohan are actually women because when they put out that call mostly women showed up with their horses and the costume team just stuck beards on them.

if this isn’t the best post i don’t

So you’re saying the entire Rohan army could have killed the Witch-King of Angmar.

if you click to open this thread you die in real life

predicted answer: “have sex with me”

I read this thread and it’s surprisingly wholesome. Lots of guys either wanting to be the little spoon, making jokes about blanket hogging, or wanting their girlfriends to say what they like so that they can pleasure them more.

Tbh I’m starting to think most of tumblr seriously lack any serious interaction with men, and not only sexual but to a platonic/friendship level.

I don’t mean to attack anyone but how come all this people decided men would think something pervert and rapey? How come people who actually checked were so surprised that men wanted something humanly acceptable and maybe even *gasps* cute?

I am serious in this question: did you ever had male friends? Because this thread to me was the LEAST surprising thing on earth.

In HS, having been a butch lesbian and having had a ton of male friends, the typical sex questions were “hey, can you tell me how to mae her feel good?” or “hey, how do I tell if she likes it?” or “do I sound clingy/pathetic if I want cuddles after?”. Boyfriends worry about their girlfriends pleasure, their happiness and what they think of sex. They do. And when they don’t do much to pleasure them, most of the time is because they are inexperienced. Women do have a problem with communicating their desire, nobody denies that it’s also society’s fault but if you don’t ask stuff you can’t get surprised you don’t get it and out there it’s full of men wanting to do things with respect and to make their girlfriends happy. 

Boys are WHOLESOME. As girls are. People are wholesome and nice and vulnerable and in strive for good things for them and others.

And even those who made sexual comments like “blowjobs” or “more boob stuff”…. why is it bad? It’s a NSFW thread???? It’s the space to talk about that. Would you have the same reaction if in their matching thread women said they want their boyfriends to go down on them more? Or if they said they’d like him to touch them in different zones? Would you have complained if women said it of their girlfriends? Then why shaming boys?

Having needs both sexual and emotional is natural, the important is not force them on people who don’t feel like that and these men didn’t (which is why the thread exists in first place).

Men have emotional needs too and pretending they don’t and buying into the “all men think about is sex” and “ah men are all rapey and dirty” is sexism, not only towards men but because it implies that women are purer than them which leads to the HolyMary kinda misoginy that denies women their need to physical pleasure.

Also let’s stop pretending sex is inherently dirty and bad. Sex is fun, as long as it’s consensual.

But yeah I agree with op, I did die opening it, OUT OF THE CUTENESS THAT SPILLED FROM IT.

(via xkcd: Marie Curie)

I’ve been reading about Lise Meitner tonight. She was the first woman to work with Max Planck, ran her own lab at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute, and was the first person to realize the enormity of Otto Hahn’s work with uranium, and how he’d split an atom.

She’s been dubbed the “mother of the atomic bomb”, because she explained what happened in the first fission experiments before anyone else in scientific publications, but she had no role in the Manhattan Project, or the development of any wartime use of fissionable elements.

The extremely radioactive element 109, meitnerium, is named after Prof. Meitner.

Learning new shit feels awesome, y’all. Especially when it’s about cool shit like awesome humans and interesting fields that I hardly understand.

Let’s include some women of color!

Meet Chien-Shiung Wu (Also Known As: “The First Lady of Physics” / “Queen of Nuclear Research”) [1912 - 1997]

Wu’s parents provided a home environment for her that gave her ample amounts of love an support. Her father believed in making sure girls had equal opportunities, especially in education. So he opened up an elementary school for girls and encouraged his own daughter to pursue her interests. And she did! She was first in all her classes in STEM, and then went to the United States to study abroad and earn her PhD. But after finding out the poor treatment of female students at UofM, Wu changed her mind and decided to study at University of California, Berkeley. 

Despite trying hard to avoid prejudice, she still faced sexism and racism throughout her education and career. There were times when her scholarships would be cut down. Regardless, she earned her PhD and accepted a job at Princeton, then later Columbia as a professor.

She made huge contributions to the nuclear physics field. And she was a significant part of the Manhattan Project. The Project had unexpected problems and delays that many of the engineers and scientists could not figure out. Wu was contacted and she provided her unpublished typewritten drafts of research to the team and they isolated and amended the problems.

She also disproved a long established law in science called The Law of Conservation of Parity. The law stated that two physical systems—like atoms—that were mirror images would have to behave in identical ways. Even though this law had been accepted for decades, Wu disproved it with her two male colleagues who originally approached her, needing her help. This was a huge milestone in STEM, but her two male colleagues were awarded the Nobel Prize for “The Wu Experiment.”  Wu received an honorable mention decades later. And then subsequently died from a stroke years after that.

Meet Dr. Shirley Jackson [1946]


Born in Washington, D.C., her parents were strongly supportive of her education. They always took time to help her with her schoolwork. Her interest in science specifically was ignited when she and her father worked together on her science projects.

In the middle of the Civil Rights Movement, she was one of few African American students studying theoretical physics and became the first black woman who earned a PhD from MIT.

A few years after that she started researching subatomic particles in several prestigious laboratories in the United States and Europe.

She collaborated in hundreds of scientific articles, and her major breakthroughs in her research that helped other scientists and inventors create faxing, solar cells, fiber optic cables, caller ID, and caller waiting.

When Bill Clinton was president, he appointed Jackson to serve as Chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). She became the first woman and first black person ever to hold that position.

She’s now an active voice in many science committees like the National Academy of Sciences and National Science Foundation. She’s also one of the board of directors for:  the New York Stock Exchange, FedEx, Marathon Oil, etc.

I love this—the expectation that it’s an old master and then you look at the subject.

Hello!
A few days ago, upon seeing this picture, I thought to myself: "Wow this looks great. I want to make it too!" I then went to school, happy, looking forward to making and afterwards eating it.

I came to the classroom, sat down, started talking to people, when I suddenly realized (and I spoke it aloud): "Damnation. I do not have an oven!"

The world seemed to fall apart. My heart felt like it was crushed by the Hulk's mighty fist. But then someone said: "you need an oven? I have two electrical ones. I'll sell you one for 30€!"

So now I shall hopefully soon own an oven and have some nice Kürbis-Mangold-Lasagne. Thank you very much for the inspiration and the following roller coaster of feelings.

I think the weirdest thing is when you stop talking to someone and you still have all this leftover information about them. Like you still know their favorite song, you know their siblings names, you remember their favorite ice cream flavor and their weird dreams they told you about at 2am. You know their dog's name and their favorite tv shows. You learned all these details about them and now they're gone. It's just weird.
