    I’m not even going to attempt to gif this. Watch it. Now. 15 pendulums, not interacting with one another, each with a slightly different time for a full swing.

    Results in gorgeousness.

    Everyone who terrifies you is sixty-five percent water.
    And everyone you love is made of stardust, and I know sometimes
    you cannot even breathe deeply, and
    the night sky is no home, and
    you have cried yourself to sleep enough times
    that you are down to your last two percent, but

    nothing is infinite,
    not even loss.

    You are made of the sea and the stars, and one day
    you are going to find yourself again.

  14. I don’t know, I think that if I could just accept the fact that my life is supposed to be difficult. You know, that’s what to be expected, then I might not get so pissed-off about it and I’ll just be glad when something nice happens.

    Seeing as today is Hemingway’s birthday, and we’re a week away from the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War, here’s a look at how he and other authors involved in the fighting saw The Great War and its aftermath.

  16. And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.

    THINX Underwear:

    OH SHIT YOU GUYS THIS COMPANY IS MAKING UNDERWEAR THAT IS STAIN RESISTANT, ANTIMICROBIAL, AND WILL ABSORB UP TO 6 TEASPOONS OF LIQUID BUT STILL LOOKS FUCKING SEXY

    AND DID I MENTION THIS PART:

    For every pair of THINX you buy, you help one girl in the developing world stay in school by providing her with seven washable, reusable cloth pads.

    AND WHY IS THAT SUCH A BIG DEAL? HERE’S WHY:

    After doing some research, Agrawal says she found that more than 100 million girls in the developing world were missing a week of school because of their periods, and using things such as leaves, old rags, or plastic bags in the place of sanitary pads.

    THE SIZES RUN FROM XS TO XXL AND THE PRICES ARE NOT INSANE, THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN THOSE 5 FOR $10 SALES AT TARGET BUT YOU WON’T HAVE TO THROW THEM OUT BECAUSE YOU MISCALCULATED YOUR FLOW AND BLED ALL OVER THEM BEFORE YOU COULD GET TO A BATHROOM

    I’M SORRY FOR SHOUTING I’M JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS

    LIKE HOLY FUCKBASKET IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME

    This is sososo important. I have met girls in the slums of India that used old rags as sanitary pads and got all kinds of infections. They did not have access to clean water to clean these rags. People in developing countries do not have access to affordable pads. This is suuuuch a good cause!
