"Do you wanna come with me?

'Cos if you do,
then I should warn you-
you're gonna see all sorts of things:
Ghosts from the past;
Aliens from the future;
the day the Earth died
in a ball of flame;
It won't be quiet, it won't be safe,
and it won't be calm.

But I'll tell you what it will be..."

7:15 p.m. What if I’ve been a ghost the whole time?

7:23 p.m. I order more mozzarella sticks. :(

Towards the whole "pronouns hurt people's feelings" topic. Am I REALLY the only person on the planet that thinks people are becoming far to sensative? Nearly to the point that they shouldn't leave their little home bubbles in the case that a bird chirps next to them in a way that sounds like a mean word. Maybe, JUST MAYBE, we're becoming a little TOO coddling and people need to learn to deal with simplistic shit like words. And yes, I've been insulted and made fun of. I got over it. So can you.

Supposedly invented by the Chinese, there is an ancient form of torture that is nothing more than cold, tiny drops falling upon a person’s forehead. 

On its own, a single drop is nothing. It falls upon the brow making a tiny splash. It doesn’t hurt. No real harm comes from it. 

In multitudes, the drops are still fairly harmless. Other than a damp forehead, there really is no cause for concern. 

The key to the torture is being restrained. You cannot move. You must feel each drop. You have lost all control over stopping these drops of water from splashing on your forehead. 

It still doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. But person after person, time and time again—would completely unravel psychologically. They all had a breaking point where each drop turned into a horror. Building and building until all sense of sanity was completely lost. 

"It was just a joke, quite being so sensitive."

"They used the wrong pronoun, big deal."

"So your parents don’t understand, it could be worse."

Day after day. Drop after drop. It builds up. A single instance on its own is no big deal. A few drops, not a problem. But when you are restrained, when you cannot escape the drops, when it is unending—these drops can be agony. 

People aren’t sensitive because they can’t take a joke. Because they can’t take being misgendered one time. Because they lack a thick skin. 

People are sensitive because the drops are unending and they have no escape from them. 

You are only seeing the tiny, harmless, single drop hitting these so-called “sensitive” people. You are failing to see the thousands of drops endured before that. You are failing to see the restraints that make them inescapable.

Reblogging for this great description of what it feels like to be subjected to a thousand tiny microaggressions accumulating in impact over time.

Hey so Chris Hadfield wrote us an article (!) involving pooping and peeing (!!!!!!!).
6 Ways Movies Get Space Wrong (by Astronaut Chris Hadfield)

#5. Going to the Bathroom in Space Is Awesome
For the solid waste, air sucks it into storage, where it’s exposed to the vacuum of space, which kills off any bacteria and neutralizes the smell. We have to brace ourselves in order to keep the digested remnants of our freeze-dried ice cream from floating off into the station, but other than a bit of an upward draft, it’s rather comfortable. The waste is packed onto returning supply ships, which burn up when re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere (so if you saw a shooting star in early 2013, you might have had me to thank, although I wouldn’t recommend wishing upon it).
For urine, men use a funnel and women use a cup. These attach to a tube that sucks the urine into storage, where it’s later converted into drinking water. It’s expensive and impractical to bring water up to the station, so every drop of refinable liquid counts. And you can pee upside down, which I did, just for fun. Wouldn’t you?
