Birth control could soon go wireless. Researchers in Massachusetts are working on a microchip that would be placed under the skin. It releases hormones just like a birth control pill and prevents pregnancy for up to 16 years. If a woman decides she wants a baby, the doctor can turn it off with a remote. Researchers plan to test it on women in 2016. [x]
This story makes me immensely uncomfortable. Particularly a doctor being able to control you via remote control.
Or a hacker…
Yeah no, yeah, no, the part where you have convenient control over something like that is rad, but the idea of having “your doctor” having control over it is hacking and power abuse waiting to happen. I expect this is an upcoming intersection between technology rights (Open Source movement, etc) and women’s rights worth paying attention to.
Maybe the greatest gif i have ever come across!
HAHAHA! Hardest working fans in the business.
This gif is everything I have ever wished for.
Get out of there Sokka
What even are you doing oh my god
Sokka would not let death stop him from joining in on a sassbending opportunity and you all know it.
girls being kept out of the sciences and pushed into the humanities; the humanities being valued less in our society than the sciences; and the humanities and sciences being looked at as stark opposites that couldn’t possibly be enjoyed for the same reasons are all problems that need to in some degree be tackled together
THIS. The problem that the humanities need scientific thinking and the sciences need human thinking is bigger than you’d think too. We’ve got politicians practically treating their work as ~magic~ and we’ve got engineers and scientists who don’t know how to talk to each other, think creatively, or consider human factors.
No but can someone explain to me what makes Supernatural good because like I watched an episode or two and it’s just like, let’s make Buffy the Vampire Slayer, except no girl power, no British sarcasm and no lesbian witches.

YES YES YES YES YES
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.

At first I was like “yeah yes okay yes” and then I saw who said it and was like “OH. OH. DAMN.”
