anyone remember me?
the one night this week that I want to stay up and write is the one night that i can’t keep my eyes open
what the fuck
my 12 yo homeschooled daughter did this. She is a budding artist and is ADHD and has Aspergers.
She loves science and has loved watching the NASA exploration of Mars.
Drawing and art is her passion, and how she wants to make a living when she grows up.
She calls it “Lonely Curiosity”
It is her artist interpretation of how the Sun is going to block Mars and Earth for the month of April, and how NASA won’t be able to communicate with the Curiosity Rover for the whole month.
Please, if you like this… reblog it, and let’s see if we can get NASA to take notice, and maybe also get it on the radar of tumblr.
ADDED note:since this afternoon ( wednesday) this has gotten over 260 hearts and reblogs, so i have added the ability to buy a signed print at http://rilyaart.storenvy.com/products/1252426-lonely-curiosity-by-anjart
This is beautiful.
My sister sent me this and at first I thought “No fucking way did Miley Cyrus try to cover Parton’s Jolene”.
30 seconds in and it quickly changed to “holy fucking shit”
Miley Cyrus - Jolene
I freaking love Miley’s music, and this cover is no exception. Give it a listen, y’all.
reminder that this is a thing and it is good
I’m not a fan of Miley as a person or an actor but holy fuck that girl can SING. JFC.
The Philosophers International Trailer (x)
Em…Can someone please tell me why Tumblr isn’t talking about this?!!
Right Tumblr, I know I posted this video yesterday, but since then the proper film twitter sent me the official trailer link and asked me to spread it around so they can get as many
well-deservedviews on it as possible.
Come on guys, I know we can do this!
Share as much as you can!
They killed the “published poet” right off the bat. Good. I might watch this.
I would like to watch this now please.
The Myth: Marilyn Monroe was a size 12.
The Truth: While the truth is she was a size 12, people must understand that that was a VINTAGE 1950s size 12. In today’s modern sizing, that is closer to a size 2-4. At Marilyn’s heaviest, she wasn’t any bigger than a (modern) size 8. I personally don’t think she ever was bigger than a (modern) size 6.
The numeral size chart has changed over the years. With every passing decade the same amount of inches in the waist became a lower and lower numeral representation. This is often referred to as Vanity sizing. A 24 inch waist is the same today as the 24 inches in the 1950s. However today we refer to that as a size 0-2, depending on designer and in the 1950s, a 24 inch waist was a 10-12.
“But Marilyn looked curvier.” True, but this had to do with the different exercise and nutrition available back when. People exercised more in their daily routine than we do today. Also cardio exercises were more popular then than the core strengthening exercises of today. Nutrition was also different back then. All this creates different body types.
Let’s also keep in mind that Marilyn was (I believe) 5’4”. A 24 inch waist and body type will look different on someone who is shorter than someone who is taller. As a general rule, people are a lot taller today than they were back when.
Marilyn is approximate a size (1960’s) 10-12 in this picture which is about a 4 by today’s sizing. (Since I do not know her actual measurements in this photo I am going by guesstimation and comparing it to vintage sizing charts.)
So when you hear the modern argument that Marilyn was a size 12, don’t mistake that as her being a plus sized lady. She never was.
The whole concept of ‘plus sized’ is utter bullshit. The average size of women today is between 14-18 (I know this from experience because I cannot buy clothes EVER, since all the clothes that fit my size are GONE). Modern size 12 is BELOW THE AVERAGE.
And yet it’s considered PLUS SIZED.
And people wonder why body dysmorphia exists, and why on average girls start their first diet at the age of 10.
Marilyn Monroe was a stunningly beautiful, sexy woman, but NOT BECAUSE OF HER SIZE. She was gorgeous because of her confidence and poise, her inner light. So who gives a fuck if people say she was a size 12 in today’s standards? She’d still be one of the most beautiful people to ever walk the earth.
And if you don’t think so, you’re an asshole.
The number of pregnancies that result from rape every year in the United States
Relevant to both Todd Akin and every pro-lifer who says pregnancies from rape “aren’t that common” or “don’t happen enough to matter.”
