I am simply a college man (23, a former Nursing student, who through unfortunate circumstances had to switch to my other love, the study of Philosophy) in Texas, discovering who I am , and trying to reduce World Suck. DFTBA!!!!
Sixth grader, Florida resident, and scientist extraordinaire, Lauren Arrington has done pretty well for herself at the ripe old age of twelve. Her science fair project studied lionfish (an invasive species in the ocean around Florida) and where they are able to survive. She determined that lionfish could survive in near-fresh water, which would included some rivers in Florida and would allow the species to invade further upstream and possibly cause further damage to Florida coast marine ecosystems. The results of Arrington’s simple project— where she placed lionfish in tanks of water with salinity levels— were news to marine biologists, who had not considered that lionfish might be able to survive in lower salinity levels than 20 parts per thousand.
Fuck yeah science!!!!! Way to go, what an amazing way that a twelve year old can advance real, usable, applicable, useful science!!! Not to mention demonstrate that science doesn’t have to be super hard, or even impossible for girls, the young, or the non-grad student!!!
Today. Wednesday, July 23rd 2014, I have only had to work one job. One 8 hour shift. I feel like I have waaaaayyyyyy too much free time on my hands. This is dangerous and irresponsible time that normal people get. I understand why crime happens now, too much free time!!!!!!!
Or, y’know, that thing called “Passover.”
Or the whole thing with Noah’s Ark where he killed off everything in the world except Noah and his family, and two of every animal. Y’know, no big deal. Just millions of people.
90% of the Old Testament is about God killing people in temper tantrums
Are we not going to mention Jesus?
Oh my god.
Dallas Mavericks’ Dirk Nowitzki is quite possibly the most respected player in the NBA. Like Kobe Bryant, the German could have received a huge contract from owner Mark Cuban worth at least $20 million per season. Instead, he elected to cut his salary significantly to $25 million over three years. The reason why he did not go with a large contract is because he knows by doing so, he will have little chance of competing for a championship again. Now, in the aftermath of his discounted contract, the Dallas Mavericks have quietly put together one of the deepest rosters in the NBA, after becoming a shell of its former championship-self.
