Am I too late to add a cute ghost to your dash?
THIS IS IT THIS IS THE BEST ONE
Climate change is prompting great migrations north for species big and small.
From a recent New York Times article, “As the planet warms, scientists say, the range of many plants and animals will change, shifting to cooler climes closer to the poles or at higher elevations. Such changes have already been documented for hundreds of species, including American goldfinches, brown argus butterflies and red oaks.”
An Arizona State microbiologist, Farran Garcia-Pichel, has located new evidence of microorganisms moving too. “This type of climate change impact may occur even among the smallest organisms. Photosynthesizing microbes that colonize arid soils will shift across the Southwest, with more heat-tolerant species moving northward and upward as temperatures increase.”

Don’t you worry, don’t you worry child
See heaven’s got a plan for you
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry now

Lobster in a bucket looks like a gigantic monster on a metallic planet, and the waterdrops look like stars.
This is transcendental.
THIS FUCKED ME UP FOR 3 DAYS
Can we please take a moment to talk about this man? He is not what you would look and say “He is a superhero.” He also doesn’t have any type of superpower, he don’t fly, or have super strength, or has the mutant gene. But he had a choice to do between what was right or wrong, and even though he knew if he didn’t do as Rumlow was asking Rumlow would kill him and just do it, he preferred not to do and die. Because he wanted to do what was the right thing to do.
Okay here’s the super important thing about this guy. He has some incredibly distinct Jewish features. Obviously this doesn’t mean that the actor or the character is Jewish, but it means that when I first saw him, as a Jewish person myself, he reminded me of many boys I went to synagogue with, and my JCC’s summer camp, and so on. [EDIT: The actor is Jewish. It’s confirmed on IMDB. Also his name is Aaron Himelstein.]
I don’t think casting this man was an accident. Because HYDRA are NAZIS. No matter how far they come from that time, they’re still Nazis. And here we have this one man, possibly Jewish, who takes the only stand he can against Rumlow. He choses to die to protect the world against HYDRA, and I truly believe his decision is what turned the tide for the rest of the SHIELD agents to oppose the STRIKE team. It’s so powerful to have this be a person, a person whose family was most likely directly attacked by HYDRA, a person who is fully comprehending the price he’ll pay and what it means, be a hero. I love him so much. I have a lot of feelings about this man.
I noticed this in the theater and found it meaningful at the time. It makes me feel so good to know that it wasn’t just me.
I WROTE A FANFIC ABOUT THIS GUY IMMEDIATELY AFTER SEEING THE MOVIE.

So while Gideon was summoning Bill, he was saying something in backwards, so I reversed it in Sony Vegas and I literally laughed.
Here the reversed version.
OH MY GOD

From the “Somewhere in China there’s a little girl warming up with your max” folder. Here is rep 3 of a 130kg back squat triple by 14 yo Luo Xiaoling (58kg). She did multiple sets at this weight in China’s National Training Base aka ‘Champion Factory’. This was during her afternoon session, she had snatched, deadlifted, and pulled in the morning session.
