THIS MAN HAS ALS, AND HIS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH. THEN IT’LL MAKE YOU CRY

The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water. 

So watch the full video here and laugh out loud at the first half and then get ready to tear up in the second half. 

damn i didnt know this is what is was

Some claim that Evolution is just a theory, as if it were merely an opinion.

No, Dystopian Sci-Fi Isn’t Bad for Society. We Need It More Than Ever

As for the dramatic explosion of young adult, predominantly female dystopian fiction—there was a time when kids didn’t want to read 1984, when that kind of fiction was a high-school-English-class required-reading bummer. Now it’s flying off the shelves, not because being afraid is hip, but because life as a young person has become increasingly uncertain. If dystopian fiction were really exacerbating the fear of technology, teenagers and young adults wouldn’t be such high-volume users of new tech.

I don’t get why people hate on dystopian fiction so much. I find it beautiful and inspiring. It helps to warn us about our own potential choices, but in most cases still highlights the strength of the human spirit. And while I’m not a huge fan of the newer genres of dystopian fiction (dystopian teen romances?) I still love that they’re popular.

Found! First Earth-Size Planet That Could Potentially Support Life
Astronomers have discovered a planet about the size of Earth,
orbiting its star in the zone where oceans of liquid water would be possible.

From Space.com

A study of the newly-found planet indicates it could have an Earth-like atmosphere and water at its surface. The planet Kepler-186f is the fifth planet of the star Kepler-186, 490 light-years away.

The planet has 1.11 times the Earth’s mass. Its radius is 1.1 times that of Earth. Kepler-186f orbits at 32.5 million miles (52.4 million kilometers) from its parent star. Its year is 130 Earth days. 

The planet orbits Kepler-186, an M-type dwarf star less than half as massive as the sun. Because the star is cooler than the sun, the planet receives solar energy less intense than that received by Mars in our solar system, despite the fact that Kepler-186f orbits much closer to its star.

This adventure is made possible by generations of searchers strictly adherent to a simple set of rules. Test ideas by experiments and observations. Build on those ideas that pass the test. Reject the ones that fail. Follow the evidence wherever it leads, and question everything. Accept these terms, and the cosmos is yours.
— Neil deGrasse Tyson, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey

Although the quote isn’t from this episode, it resonates with the current state of affairs on our tiny world.

Make It Your Own

- I designed this bumper sticker for Star Citizen and really want to see it become a thing. I love the idea of ship personalization and customization and am really excited for the Arena Commander Module.
