please stop posting about ferguson it has been a month thank u💜
Snowflakes are actually the perfect metaphor for people. Each one IS unique, but we all have the same structure and are pretty similar in spite of our differences. And really, with as many around as there is, aint no one gonna notice your differences unless they care enough to look closely.
People are also similar to snowflakes in that it is difficult to drive when there are too many of them piled up on the road.
Well that took a turn I didn’t expect
WHY ARE NONE OF YOU FUCKERS FLIPPING SHIT?!?
NASA HAS DECLARED PLUTO A PLANET AGAIN
IT HAS MOONS!!!!! IT HAS MOONS!!!!!!!
WHAT. WHAT! PLUTO YOU FUCKING DID IT!
VIVA LA PLUTO, YOU DID IT!!!
I can’t find a source. Does anyone have any? I won’t believe it until I get a source.
Except those sources literally said that pluto isn’t actually a planet again? Just that popular vote says it should be?
From the Science Alert article:
Last week at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, three experts - two for Pluto being a planet and one against - debated the issue in front of an audience of scientists, teachers and the public.
Argument number 3 was voted by the audience as most convincing, but with the understanding that things change in science where more information is discovered, and when it comes to, you know, THE UNIVERSE, there is still much to be learned. So Pluto should be considered a planet right now, the audience decided, but that could change in the future as our knowledge about planets and other cosmic bodies grows.
And from the TIME article:
The latest evidence: a debate at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, in which three astronomers squared off to present both sides of the question: “Is Pluto a Planet?” And when the dust settled, the audience, made up mostly of ordinary citizens, declared once again that the answer is “duh, obviously.”
In case you still don’t understand, there was a DEBATE about whether or not pluto should still be a planet. And, afterwards, the audience voted that the side that was FOR pluto being reconsidered a planet was the best. THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT PLUTO IS NOW CONSIDERED A PLANET AGAIN. It just means that a bunch of people who watched a debate thought that it should be. This is not appoved by NASA or any other major scientific organization. It was literally a poll of common people after watching a debate.
And these people barely even understand what the definition of a planet is, or why that definition has been made. My favourite quote from the TIME article:
“It didn’t make sense at all,” said Center for Astrophysics communications director David Aguilar, who set up the debate. “Isn’t a dwarf fruit tree also a fruit tree? Isn’t a dwarf rabbit a rabbit?”
Nice to know that the debaters themselves don’t understand what they’re debating.
TL;DR, no, pluto is not a planet. Fuck Pluto.
• ignore me • space • science • i get so mad about pluto • pluto is not and will never be a planet
how many times do doctors need to confirm that lack of sleep is physically and emotionally harming high school students because of how early they have to be up before someone will give enough of a shit about these kids’ health to actually change something
Now remember people, National Coming Out Day is on its way. If you “come out” on facebook as straight and/or cis, an ally, a brony, a fucking whovian, or anything other than a marginalized sexual orientation and/or gender identity, I will ram my boot so far up your ass you’ll be tasting Vans for weeks.

aren’t those the guys from scrubs?
What they say: “I was just joking.”
What they mean: “I was completely serious, but I hate being called out, so I’d rather pretend that you’re just too sensitive.”
