if you see someone being interrupted in a conversation, acknowledge them, don’t let them be pushed to the side. if you see someone lagging behind, walk beside them. if someone is being ignored, take the step to include them. always remind people of their worth. it hurts when it feels like you’re being forgotten. that small gesture can mean a lot.

Ein typisches Elektroauto produziere im Laufe seiner Betriebsdauer die Hälfte dessen, was ein durchschnittlicher Pkw an Treibhausgasemissionen verursacht, heißt es in dem Bericht. Die vor allem durch die Batterieproduktion höheren Emissionen glichen sich gegenüber einem durchschnittlichen Verbrenner nach zwei Jahren aus. Wenn erneuerbare Energie verwendet werde, um den Stromer wieder aufzuladen, betrage dieser Zeitraum anderthalb Jahre.

Projections in the Forest

"Photographer Tarek Mawad and animator Friedrich van Schoor just spent six weeks embedded in nature to create Bioluminescent Forest. The filmmakers state that everything you see was created live, without any effects added in post-production”

It’s beautiful, :D

Thank you for the thumbs, I'll need all the help I can get ;) yup just two more exams this week and then half a year working on a thesis project, which is going to be much much cooler than sitting in lectures all day. Hopefully.
For some reason this reminds me of that one time my best friend was having a rough time and I wanted to help her but I was too far away... So I ordered her favourite type of pizza to be delivered to her place. As a special request I asked them to "please draw a big heart on the box."

She sent me a picture of it later. Not only had they covered the whole box with cute hearts, even the pizza itself had the shape of a heart.

Thank you :)
I did it too, changing my studies I mean, about five years ago, when I realized I didn't like what I was doing. Now I do like what I'm learning, it's how they're teaching it here that I have a bit of a problem with.

Sometimes it helps seeing how things are in another country to really appreciate what you have back home. I'm not a big fan of the German educational system but it's soo much better than the French one.

About hobbies, I agree. I really need something that lets me get away from school and everyone there which is not playing video games all night. But I was moving around a lot during the last two years, never staying in one place (or country) for more than half a year. It's one of the peculiarities of the program I'm studying in. So this makes it difficult to really immerse myself in something or have a garden/band/RPG group with a bunch of friends. :/

Thank you kind being <3 People saying they need me is a pretty big motivation boost right there.

I was thinking, maybe I could plant trees in space. That would be pretty useful, right? What are your plans for interstellar civilization?

Also, it's just two more exams and one thesis and I'm done with school forever. I think I may be able to get through it.

Okay, I don't think I want to continue studying the space things. This suuucks. Can I do something else please? Preferably something that involves planting trees, thank you.

Also, do you think this feeling will pass after the exams are over?

yo bro is it safe down there in the woods? yeah man it’s cool by Tomislav Jagnjic

I thought this was just a joke but nope, that’s literally what the artist named this piece.

Some other gems by Tomislac Jagnjic:

And I worried myself sick over naming my art. This is so liberating.

oh my god.

let me share a memory with y’all. it’s from i guess 1978 or thereabouts. it’s high summer. i don’t remember where my mom was driving me, in our avocado green chevette, i just know there was a traffic jam that turned 35w northbound into a parking lot from horizon to horizon.

picture it – wait, you don’t have to use your imagination, this happened all the damn time back then.


every one of those damn cars was burning leaded gasoline. there were no emissions regulations. there were no safety regulations. there were just thousands and thousands of detroit steel shoeboxes belching visible smoke as they idled, engines loud and hot, here and there a radiator giving up in the heat, a cloud of burning oil rising.

i, a smeet of five or six, was choking on toxic smog.

i reckon it was about a half hour into the traffic jam that i first threw up. i remember a blinding headache, i remember being confused, i remember dry heaving with my arms and head hanging out the window, the green metal of the car burning my hands and my chin. i don’t remember passing out, but i’m told i lost consciousness before mom was able to get to an off-ramp, because there were no emergency lanes on the highways back then.

i lived. and life went on. what were we going to do, complain? if i’d died, the cause of death probably would’ve been recorded as heatstroke, not carbon monoxide poisoning.

i know i’m probably preaching to the choir here on tumblr. but i really wish i could tell that story to the people who think deregulation is no big deal. i wish they’d put themselves in my mom’s shoes.

or even just look at some old pictures, then look out the window.


ever notice how cityscapes used to have that orange tint and hazy aura? yeah, that’s poison gas.

remember how the mississippi river used to be a stinking soup of baby-shit yellow sludge covered with disturbingly stiff rafts of light orange foam?


i can’t even find pictures of the sludge and foam, i guess they didn’t end up on the internet. the smell was indescribable. that oily shimmer. the reek of dead things. people didn’t boat on the river for pleasure; it smelled too bad, it was too ugly, and you could get super super sick if you touched the water.

and now look at it.


i still wouldn’t want to drink it, but if i fell in i wouldn’t bolt for the shower in a panic, you know?

if the thieving billionaires get their way, we can kiss those sailboats goodbye, and learn the smell of toxic foam once more. the ultra-rich won’t even feel the extra money, they’ve already got more than they could ever touch, they just stash it in offshore accounts to rot, but the rest of us will return to a time of neverending nausea and weird cancers. a time when every elementary school class had at least one kid who’d been born with no fingers or their heart outside their body, and this was just… the way things were.

i’m sorry. i didn’t mean to longpost. it’s just. god. y’all have no idea how CLEAN everything is now, compared to when i was a kid. and these rich old men are counting on that, on people not knowing or not remembering how bad it was before regulation, not realizing how much we need these protections until it’s too late.

edit: replaced the last pic because i accidentally grabbed lake calhoun instead of the river. now it’s the mississippi.
