Got some safety garment fabric for everyone!! #limited #sleepwear & #partywear pieces available this week for #afropunk #strangevixens #condom #safetyfirst

We want some prom dresses made out of this!

I NEED THIS. I NEED LOTS OF FABRIC LIKE THIS. I NEED TO MAKE OUTFITS OUT OF THEM. I NEED TO BECOME THE SEX EDUCATION VERSION OF MS. FRIZZLE.

I cannot find any fabric like this and now I am sad. Internet, how would I be able to get my hands on cool fabric like this? I need sex education wear! Also if you know of any places that sell clothes related to any aspect of sex education let me know so I can add them to my list.

Well, if you can find or take a photo like this it’s possible to get custom printed fabric online - you’d just need to tile the image, which shouldn’t be hard if it’s one like the above that just has a plain black background.

These shows taught me all about animals, science, math, geography, reading, grammar, kindness and friendship. 

This will always be golden 

The best part is that most if not all of these were on public television, I believe. Meaning that if a family could afford a cheap/used tv (or even the one-time cost of a new one) but not an ongoing expensive cable subscription, these enriching and educational shows with minimal advertising were still available!
PBS Kids is and always has been the best, and I will always advocate in favor of free accessible FUN education with as few boundaries as possible.

rozf: Charles and Erik are a geology professor and something else. They flirt badly.

The rock grinder is Erik’s favorite piece of equipment in the lab, because while it is so damned loud that he can barely hear himself think, it is also so damned loud that he can’t hear anyone speak. This is, as far as he’s concerned, the best thing ever.

Other professors in the department prefer to foist off rock grinding to chipper undergrads who are eager as puppies to get into a lab and make themselves look good, especially if they’re hoping to get into grad school. Erik sees this as a terrible waste of a valuable resource that is perfect for avoiding people.

Undergrads stop by? Oops, it’s time to grind some samples. Grad students stick their head in the door? Oops, here are three stacks of exams for you to look over and also look at the time, it’s time to grind some samples. Department chair stops by? Oops, it’s time to grind up every single rock in sight and possibly every single rock on campus. For science.

Charles Xavier walks in? Turn off the machine. Immediately.

BUT GUYS!

What if we used this to coat foam cosplay weapons and armor? 

what if i sprayed this on my dick while i was hard. i would have the eternal wood

^ Natural selection is coming for you

okay but BUILDINGS IN EARTHQUAKES

REUSABLE BUILDING MATERIALS

SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES

This would have a lot of applications, but I don’t see how it would work for earthquakes. A lot of injury comes from breaking glass (is there a transparent option for this?) and falling stuff, which, if the stuff was indestructible, would still hit/crush people

Currently yes, but earthquake-proofing buildings is very good in case something over a 4 rolls around (hello napa last week)

though i guess with buildings it would be very important to figure out how this stuff distributes shock

Also, how well does it deal with say, being pulled or twisted? A lot of the damage in earthquakes comes from the deformations of the ground causing building parts to stretch or twist in various directions.

This, for example, is a big problem for concrete - concrete is really good at compressive force - you can pile lots of weight on it and it’ll be fine. But if it gets pulled or twisted, it just breaks apart - this is why concrete needs to be reinforced with a lot of steel and other metal bits (which are much more flexible, and so survive being twisted or pulled much better), and why cheap or older concrete structures that are otherwise structurally sound collapse in quakes. (freeway overpasses, anyone?)

Since this is a spray on material, that only helps with the surface areas, it seems like it can help against impact forces (like, good against explosions maybe?) but I doubt it would help much against other types of building failure.

"Dr Schadt is in the process of sequencing Brooke’s genome, which is comprised of two long strings of letters, one from the mother and one from the father.

Each string is three billion letters long, and changes in just one of these letters can lead to profound effects on development, physical appearance, and risk of disease.”

wow okay daily mail I knew you were bad but not this bad. This is not how genomes work. I understand the need for simplification but this isn’t even simple, it’s cringeworthy

Now I am picturing us all with physical strings inside of us that contain or DNA just coiled up in our bellies or something

Well, “Brooke” must have a pretty nasty genetic disease if it’s reduced her to only two chromosomes with DNA from only one parent each. I’m surprised she’s still alive.

Meanwhile, fresh from the Daily Mail: exciting new close up images of DNA!

Two cousins’ stroke of luck has provided the final evidence in solving a mystery of the Racetrack Playa that has long puzzled visitors and scientists: What mechanism moves rocks across flat dirt in the heart of the hottest, driest place on earth?

wow im just going to leave this here

Are we really surprised. Dove actually sells SKIN WHITENING products overseas.

Dove actually issued a response when this was originally noticed back in 2012 - they apologized for the language and made sure that all new bottles would be produced with the correct fair-medium-dark language. This appears to be an old bottle leftover from before the issue was fixed:

Thank you for your feedback and for sharing your inspiring story. Dove is committed to representing beauty of all ages, ethnicities, shapes and sizes. We believe in celebrating real beauty and in raising the self-esteem of women and young girls globally.
We found out that our European team was already aware of the mistake regarding labelling on Dove Summer Glow Body Lotion bottles. Many of our lotions focus on moisturization as the key benefit and in some cases we label them “normal to dry skin.” The Dove Summer Glow Body Lotion is a gradual self tanner that also moisturizes. It should have been marked as “fair to medium skin” or “medium to dark skin” depending on the skin type it focuses on. In this case, there was an oversight from our team and we accidently combined the phrases. As soon as our teams in Europe discovered this error, they began the process of relabeling the bottles. These will start appearing on shelf this summer. We are also in the process of correcting the language in our other communication vehicles where possible. As always, we appreciate the feedback and support from our community.

The marketing text on their official website and all recently produced products have been corrected to use fair-medium-dark language (as can be seen here); if anyone has seen any “normal” marked bottles in stores it’s probably old stock that hasn’t been replaced (and you might want to ask your store why they are still selling 2 year old stock…)

UK embassy apologises for ‘burning White House’ tweet
The British embassy in Washington has apologised after tweeting a picture of a White House cake surrounded by sparklers, “commemorating” the burning of the building 200 years ago.
The US presidential residence was set on fire by British forces in 1814 during the War of 1812 with the United States.
The embassy later said: “Apologies for earlier Tweet.”
It added: “We meant to mark an event in history & celebrate our strong friendship today.”
