Holy. Crap. I just found an email argument between me and some random internet person about evolution and creationism. Apparently I thought this was important enough to print out and save for TWENTY YEARS!!!

Cannot tell you how many times I’ve been on the phone with Hank and it’s clear he isn’t listening and then I say you’re not listening and then he says, “Hold on someone on the Internet is wrong about something.”

Mine Kafon by Massoud Hassani

Hassani, a product designer from Afganistan, build (by hand) a wind-powered device that trips land mines as it rolls across the ground. It is made using bamboo and biodegradable products.

Many of these mines are active and near populated areas in countries like Afganistan and are hard to remove. The UN says that one mine clearance specialist is killed, and two injured, for every 5,000 mines cleared.

Hassani’s cheap and easy to make method has been achieving great results.

In a world of overcomplicated solutions, we need more people who think “Wait, why don’t we just roll a giant freaking ball over it?”

Ok I am not a misandrist or anything, but I would never vote for a male running for president. Everyone knows their jobs are fixing cars and sinks, it just wouldn’t be plausible to think they could make the decisions for the country. And if they’re spending all their time trying to be politicians then who is gonna mow the lawns and move heavy things? I’m not belittling them, those jobs are important too but things work because everyone has their place!

Why Into The Dalek Was Proper Doctor Who

claudiaboleyn:

  • Passed the Bechdel test with flying colours.
  • Challenged gender roles: Journey is a soldier, fierce, ruthless, career orientated, ready to get the job done; Danny Pink, although framed as a ‘ladies’ man’ is painfully shy when interacting with Clara, cries over a remembered death, finds the expected traditional make gender role of ‘ladykiller’ uncomfortable and difficult to deal with.
  • Let’s be honest Danny Pink is the most interesting, relatable, likeable, and realistic male character since Moffat took the helm of Doctor Who. 
  • Clara Oswald is a bloody good teacher.
  • Clara Oswald is a career woman. 
  • Clara Oswald reads The Guardian. 
  • Gretchen Alison Carlisle. 
  • Journey was possibly lesbian or bi or pan. Simple easy normalising representation. The type I enjoy. 
  • The Doctor does not like guns. He does not like soldiers. He does not like the military…
  • But he’s also portrayed as a hypocrite, and his words and sentiments are questioned by Clara. 
  • Complex exploration of the Doctor’s moral core while keeping him both empathetic, unpredictable, and shockingly (at times) alien.
  • The most amazing slow motion sequences and CGI. 
  • A return to the story arc of this series. 
  • Complex exploration of hatred, vengeance, mercy, empathy, and hope. 
  • The interior of a Dalek. Need I say more?
  • We are inspired to show compassion for the monster/villain of the entire show and to hope that somewhere inside it is the capacity for growth and change. If that’s not the message of Doctor Who, then I don’t know what is.)

Do you know my only problem with Into The Dalek?

The only thing that stopped this episode being a 10/10 and instead demoted it to a 9/10?

"Any remarks about my hips will not be appreciated."

"Ah, your hips are fine! You’re built like a man!"

"How do I look?"

"Sort of short and roundish but with a good personality which is the…
