In Britain we let those AUBERGINES live once we heal them with our FREE HEALTH CARE
NOBODY CARES, ENGLAND
at least America came up with their own word and didn’t steal ours
you used the wrong flag France
Hey! Hey, guys! Canada likes eggplants - or aubergine - what ever you want to call it - too!
Can we be included in this!?
Tumblr is the only place I can think of where a picture of an eggplant turns into a battle between countries.
I can never not reblog this post

Sometimes I think to myself, “do I really want to buy another chocolate bar?”
And then I remember that there is a super volcano under Yellowstone that is 40,000 years overdue and when it erupts it could potentially cover most if north America in ash and create a volcanic winter that kills half the worlds population
And I’m like, fuck yeah I want that chocolate bar
This person has the most real values to date
I was just a 17-year old kid from the Bronx with dreams of becoming a scientist, and somehow the world’s most famous astronomer found time to invite me to Ithaca in upstate NY and spend a Saturday with him.
I remember that snowy day like it was yesterday. He met me at the bus stop. He showed me his laboratory at Cornell University. Carl reached behind his desk, and inscribed this book (Cosmic Connection) for me:
For Neil Tyson,
With all good wisdom to a future astronomer.
- Carl Sagan
At the end of the day, he drove me back to the bus station. The snow was falling harder. He wrote his phone number, his home phone number, on a scrap of paper. And he said, “If the bus can’t get through, call me. Spend the night at my home, with my family.”
I already knew I wanted to become a scientist, but that afternoon I learned from Carl the kind of person I wanted to become. He reached out to me and to countless others. Inspiring so many of us to study, teach, and do science. Science is a co-operative enterprise, spanning the generations. It’s the passing of a torch from teacher to student to teacher. A community of minds reaching back from antiquity and forward to the stars.

Thermochromic table by Jay Watson
imagine banging someone on that table
imagine being home alone and seeing imprints on that table
Imagine having a friend sit at that table for a long while, but when they get up there’s no imprints at all.
What if you got up after trying to console a crying friend, and found that you had no imprints… and they were crying because they missed you?
aaaah it was a cool table now it’s a horror/drama story
What would it be like if the U.S. was war torn like Syria? A new video by international NGO Save the Children imagines just that, through the eyes of a young girl:
The disturbing video features shots of the girl as she goes about her normal life over the course of a year. The video begins and ends with the child celebrating her birthday. Between shots, we see how her life changes dramatically as war ravages her country.
I’m so so bored of predictable, tame uninspiring Oscars hosts. Who are we gonna get next year? Another turn for Ellen, Billy Crystal, Whoopi? Yawny McYawnington. Why have one host when you could have ALL OF THE MUPPETS?
Do I even gots to ‘splain to you why this is a good idea, ok?
STATLER & WALDORF SITTING IN THE AUDIENCE TAKING THE PISS OUT OF EVERYTHING
EVERYTHING GOING WRONG BACKSTAGE
And before you say that it would’t be possible The Muppets have peformed live shows before.
They’re the perfect halfway house between something ‘edgy’ like Seth McFarlane and something as beige as Billy Crystal. Nostalgic, hilarious and fun. There’s already a facebook page for it which started when Eddie Murphy quit as host in 2012 that has about 30k likes - https://www.facebook.com/MuppetOscars
Let’s make this happen folks.
This only has 109 notes. WTF people, get on it!
I am more down with this than the force of gravity itself
