The first stabbings have just took place in George Square, the streets are like a war zone right now. I cannot say this enough, please stay indoors if you are in the Glasgow area tonight. Keep yourself safe, your life is far more important than our independence.

Teenager from India invents device that can convert breath to speech
A high school student from India has invented a device that can convert a person’s breath into speech, to give millions of people around the world suffering from speech impediment a ‘voice’ for the first time.
Sixteen-year-old Arsh Shah Dilbagi has developed a new technology called ‘TALK’, which is a cheap and portable device to help people who are physically incapable of speaking express themselves. Right now, 1.4 percent of the world’s population has very limited or no speech, due to conditions such as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), locked-in syndrome (LIS), Encephalopathy (SEM), Parkinson’s disease, and paralysis.

"25 things i wish i realized while i was still in highschool"

  1. That zit on your cheek literally does not matter
  2. Skipping class one time will not ruin your entire life
  3. The boy you’re trying so hard to impress will mean nothing to you in a year
  4. Bring coffee to school and ignore people who make fun of it
  5. Bring a snack, too. Don’t care if people hear you eating in class.
  6. Being popular isn’t and will never be something that seriously defines who you are
  7. Appreciate your teachers
  8. Doing/not doing drugs doesn’t make you cooler than anyone else.
  9. Neither does drinking
  10. Talk to the kid sitting alone; even though it may not change your life it could drastically change theirs
  11. Participate in school events
  12. Wear sweatpants everyday
  13. Or wear a dress everyday
  14. Wear whatever makes you comfortable
  15. Nobody will laugh at you if you sit alone at your lunch table for five minutes
  16. Utilize the library
  17. Don’t wait 20 minutes to text someone back just to seem cool
  18. Tell your friends how much you love them
  19. Cherish your free textbooks… seriously
  20. Help confused freshmen, be nice to them. Remember how much you would have appreciated it a couple years ago
  21. Compliment the other girls in the bathroom
  22. That fight you had with your mom really isn’t that big of a deal
  23. It’s okay to cry
  24. Don’t let your desire for a romantic relationship stop you from forming platonic relationships
  25. Remember that life does go on

I’m going to keep reblogging this…Because this means Republican WOMEN in the senate voted AGAINST equal pay.

the last time this bill came up, Maine’s senator Susan Collins voted it down..she gave a speech at my school and talked at lengths about how “WOMEN CAN BE ANYTHING” so naturally i asked her why she made this very same voting choice and basically her excuse was it would be a struggle for the government because then companies would have to take the time to send in information distinguishing women from the disabled…and obviously that’s too high a price to pay because according to the government being a woman has now become a handicap.

THINX Underwear:

OH SHIT YOU GUYS THIS COMPANY IS MAKING UNDERWEAR THAT IS STAIN RESISTANT, ANTIMICROBIAL, AND WILL ABSORB UP TO 6 TEASPOONS OF LIQUID BUT STILL LOOKS FUCKING SEXY

AND DID I MENTION THIS PART:

For every pair of THINX you buy, you help one girl in the developing world stay in school by providing her with seven washable, reusable cloth pads.

AND WHY IS THAT SUCH A BIG DEAL? HERE’S WHY:

After doing some research, Agrawal says she found that more than 100 million girls in the developing world were missing a week of school because of their periods, and using things such as leaves, old rags, or plastic bags in the place of sanitary pads.

THE SIZES RUN FROM XS TO XXL AND THE PRICES ARE NOT INSANE, THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN THOSE 5 FOR $10 SALES AT TARGET BUT YOU WON’T HAVE TO THROW THEM OUT BECAUSE YOU MISCALCULATED YOUR FLOW AND BLED ALL OVER THEM BEFORE YOU COULD GET TO A BATHROOM

I’M SORRY FOR SHOUTING I’M JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS

LIKE HOLY FUCKBASKET IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME

Always reblog. Once i have money again, I’m buying a pair.

Buying these. If you subscribe to their newsletter, you get a $10 off coupon. 

THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL INNOVATION FOR UNDERWEAR. I was actually thinking the other day “Why isn’t there underwear that can absorb period blood without ruining it? Because mother nature can be such a poop head and give you your period early!!!!

All pedophiles are trash, no exceptions. There is no “Kink-shaming” about it. Protect survivors at all costs.

Pedophilia is not a fucking kink. A kink is like when someone likes to suck on toes or some shit. Or get bound. Or eat food off their partner. ALL of these things with consenting adults only. But being sexually attracted to children is not a fucking kink. It’s a crime.
