Here’s what we should talk about when we talk about Ebola.

The first map compares the total deaths caused by disease in every country. The second shows the public health spending of every government. The difference of the two worlds presented speaks for itself.

my policy for “they’re just doing it for attention” has always been and always will be “then someone needs to pay attention to them”

Clergy march in solidarity to the Ferguson Police Department, where they offer to hear confession of the officers’ sins.

Part one

#MoralMonday, October 13th

Ferguson police hiding behind barricaded doors before even considering dealing with things. Why do they even get paid??

“A villain is just a victim whose story hasn’t been told.”

Why is this one of the things recommended for me on my dash.

There’s so much wrong with this.

1. The quote is bullshit, and indicative of everything terrible about our society, which constantly puts the pain of the abuser above those they abuse. 

2 It also grossly furthers the idea that all victims are potential abusers. Which has real life ramifications, because this is actually something that survivors of child abuse fear and one of the reasons they do not always come forward.

3. Bucky has no goddamn business being in this set. He wasn’t a villain. He actually was a victim.

4. We saw Anakin’s story. We KNOW his story. Cool story, bro, but you still murdered children. You are not now and never shall be a fucking victim, but those babies were, so fuck you and fuck your defenders and especially fuck anyone who would think that you are a goddamn victim.

5. We know Magneto’s story intimately. It has been told often. He was a victim once. And then he decided that Genocide was okay. 

6.  Fuck Fake White Khan and we do in fact know Real Khan’s story. He did think he was a victim, but no, he was not. He was a complicated and amazing villain that went against the typical type of POC villains that we get - he was brilliant and clever and not just a “thug.” But he was not a victim (no, not even after the neighboring planet went boom.) 

7. We know Loki’s story too. It’s one of a whiny spoiled brat who keeps trying to commit genocide. 

tldr: Bucky has no business being in this set. The rest of these people are murderous terrible people. They are not victims, though some of them were once. 

I waited to reblog this, specifically for someone to express this^^. tumblr delivered.

During spring in Denmark, about one half hour before dusk, more than 1 million Sturnus Vulgaris (kind of bird) gathered from all over to join and form a remarkable collection of the air. Until making the sky looks dark. This phenomenon is called Black Sun, and can be seen in early spring in the western Denmark. c

The Strange and Radical New World of 3-D Printed Body Parts

A few years ago, if a horrific infection ate your jawbone, doctors had to build makeshift mandibles from your fibula, a process that left you sliced open as surgeons painstakingly whittled away at replacement bone. Yech.
Today they can just hit Control-P: Based on MRI and CT scans of your busted-up body parts, hyperspecialized 3-D printers produce custom replacements, no sculpture skills required.
