what happened to animal planet
i think my upstairs neighbors probably heard the WHAT THE FUCK i uttered the first time i saw “Hitler’s Jurassic Zoo” on the channel guide
Starfish Prime was a high-altitude nuclear test conducted by the United States on 9 July 1962 as part of Operation Fishbowl over Johnston Atoll. It was successfully detonated at an altitude of 400 km (250 mi) at 09:00:09 Honolulu time.
Starfish Prime’s electromagnetic pulse was much larger than originally expected and drove much of the instrumentation off scale, as well as causing electrical damage in Hawaii, which was about 1,445 km (898 mi) away from the detonation point. It knocked out about 300 streetlights, set off numerous burglar alarms and damaged a telephone company microwave link.
Just a friendly reminder that first of all how dare you offensive unbelievable and another thing not a joke NOT FUNNY
i’m so tired and utterly overwhelmed.
mostly overwhelmed by stress and anxiety and not-knowing, but… even more overwhelmed by the kindness of the people i know. thank you to everyone who has offered any kind of support to us. we’re trying hard to find the ground underneath our feet again.
this summer has been so hard. i’ve had to watch as cal lost a job to discrimination that masqueraded as business sense and was propped up by my state’s at-will employment laws. a job offer he was so excited about fell through after we had already invested in equipment to do the job. my own employment ended before i expected, leaving me shorter on cash than i had planned. and a local friend whom we had invested time, money, and love into helping build a new life vanished with some of my things.
yesterday was two years from the day my father passed away, and i carry a lot of “what would he even think of me right now” guilt. it’s hard to push down, but the only thing i can do is put one foot in front of the other and keep looking for ways to make things work.
i don’t feel like i have much to offer, but thank you to everyone who cares and believes in me.
Just remember. There is no such thing as a fake geek girl.
There are only fake geek boys.
Science fiction was invented by a woman.
Specifically a teenage girl. You know, someone who would be a part of the demographic that some of these boys are violently rejecting.
yo mary shelley wrote frankenstein in 1818 and isaac asimov was born in 1920 so you kinda get my point
let’s not forget the awesome Leigh Brackett who was, I believe, the first (or one of) science fiction writer to create multiple works of fiction set in the same fictional universe. she contributed to the original draft of The Empire Strikes Back. more love for lady scifi writers
Ancient relics of a bygone era
I walked by an older woman telling her pre-teen son/grandson what Blockbuster was today and it really made me think
