Biofluorescent corals!
Who said that corals are just rocks??? This lively Mussidae colony was captured at night when its polyps —equipped with little stingers called nematocysts— were extended to feed.  Photo: David Gruber and Vincent Pieribone.

circumhorizontal arcs photographed by (click pic) david england, andy cripe, del zane, todd sackmann and brandon rios. this atmospheric phenomenon, otherwise known as a fire rainbow, is created when light from a sun that is at least 58 degrees above the horizon passes through the hexagonal ice crystals that form cirrus clouds which, because of quick cloud formation, have become horizontally aligned.

 If Barbie was an actual woman, she would be 5’9” tall, have a 39” bust, an 18” waist, 33” hips and a size 3 shoe.
• Barbie calls this a “full figure” and likes her weight at 110 lbs.
• At 5’9” tall and weighing 110 lbs, Barbie would have a BMI of 16.24 and fit the weight criteria for anorexia. She likely would not menstruate.
• If Barbie was a real woman, she’d have to walk on all fours due to her proportions.
 • Slumber Party Barbie was introduced in 1965 and came with a bathroom scale permanently set at 110 lbs with a book entitled “How to Lose Weight” with directions inside stating simply “Don’t eat.”
i’m always reblogging this.
I’ve reblogged this a million times and will ALWAYS reblog it.  She is so beautiful…It’s a great message.

I always reblog this when I see it on my dash.


Now to be fair, the “original” Barbie had a really weird body shape because girls were meant to sew clothes for her, and she had to allow for bulky seams on itty bitty doll clothes. Otherwise she would have looked like she was wearing a sack of potatoes. Girls don’t sew much anymore, though, so I understand why the idea of Barbie has become a sore spot.

I dunno. I always loved my Barbies growing up. They were just toys, you know? Seven year old me didn’t associate Barbie with unrealistic beauty standards or oppression of women or anything. I just liked her hair that would change color with hot or cold water. Or the mermaid Barbie to play with in the bathtub. 

I’m probably totally missing the point.

How Ink is Made

(I left out a couple parts for clarity, where towards the end they add wax and fillers, though please watch the video. It’s beautifully shot and goes into more detail,..)

(plus it has epic orchestral music in the background which makes any learning experience more badass).

This is so satisfying to watch.
