"I live in a neighborhood where my husband & I are 1 of the 3 Black families that live here.. Tonight the KKK knocked on our door!!! I was already looking out the window and seen them coming down my driveway. I screamed for my children to come upstairs in my room and into my master bath. . As I seen there faces in fear.. my mind flash back to Malcom X. My oldest understand but not the rest. My husband prides his self on teaching his wife & family self defense when he not home…. My heart was pounding! Palms sweating! Voice weak.. I look at my son.. And my mind drifted to Micheal Brown, Treyvon.Martin, Shawn Bell. WE legal over here.. everything registered! As the knocks kept coming .. I mustard up the voice strength to say just a minute! My body weak.. but my mind strong! I open the door.. Scope on! Beam on! Safety off!!! WHAT CAN I DO FOR YALL!!! Cause you at THE WRONG HOUSE! #FacesPriceless!! I will Protect. My Home, My Children, MY LEGACY!!!"

Astrophile:  Tour the Lava Lakes of Io
by Jacob Aron
Take a trip to Io, one of Jupiter’s many moons, and you will find pools of boiling hot lava nestled among the erupting peaks of raging volcanoes. Welcome to the Lake District from hell.
Now researchers have pored over snapshots taken by a passing space probe to make freshly detailed descriptions of three of Io’s infamous hotspots: Pillan, Wayland Patera and Loki Patera.
They found that each one has its own unique eruption style. The work not only helps flesh out our understanding of the dynamics of this malevolent moon, but could also offer a glimpse of what the early, highly volcanic Earth was like.
Io traces an oval-shaped orbit around the giant planet Jupiter, so it experiences varying gravitational forces that periodically squeeze the moon’s rocky interior. This generates so much heat that Io is the most geologically active object in the solar system…

I want to do a rom-com with Melissa McCarthy. I even told her that at an awards show, and she said ‘Yes, Let’s do it!’

Anonymous asked: "killed for being black" there's more black on white murders than vice versa per capita. Heck, there's more black on black murder than white on black murder in both absolute and per capita terms. Stop bitching and get your own fucking house in order.

lordbape:

I would ask to a link to your stats but I literally don’t care, you don’t have any, and that’s beside the point. Are any of those white people being killed for being white? Again, are any of those white people being killed for being white? Literally no… like what dimension of earth are you in if you just typed back what i said verbatim and still didn’t understand it?

These are things that don’t just happen to black people, but specifically happen to them because they are Black, because of systemic racism… Now, you make a similar list of murders and violence and humiliation happening to white people because of their racial position in this country, because of racism, that are reflective of any racial subordination they have in this country— i will wait…

“A three second exposure meant that subjects had to stand very still to avoid being blurred, and holding a smile for that period was tricky. As a result, we have a tendency to see our Victorian ancestors as even more formal and stern than they might have been.”
