I’m gonna offer the choice: do you want an empty life, or a meaningful death?

i’ve reblogged this so many times
same. i love the fact that it’s real to

OMG I HAVE TO KNOW.
A weird thing I find incredibly helpful for art/writing.
Eplans.com is a website that sells blueprints for houses.
This might not seem that helpful but if you want a characters house you can make selections based on what sort of house you want them to live in.
Then browse through the results and find the house you want. Then you can view the blueprints and have a room layout for that house, which can help with visualising the space they live in.
It makes describing generic homes so much easier.
i have this HUGE THING for blueprints—and I always want help with layouts—MOTHERFUCK this is like a fucking WET DREAM OVER HEEEUH.
REBLOGGING AGAIN FOR THE BEATLES RIGHT AT THE END OH GOD

Geraldine Hoff Doyle, was a 17 years (in 1942) while she was working at the American Broach & Machine Co. when a photographer snapped a pic of her on the job.
That image used by J. Howard Miller for the “We Can Do It!” poster, released during World War II.
(Movies of jets from young stars at HubbleSite: here)
If you’re like me and maybe a little confused as to what you’re looking at, here’s some more detail (Yes, even Joe has to look stuff up sometimes):
As a star is formed from collapsing dust, ever increasing its density and energy, it begins to form a disk of dust and gas pulled in and rotated by its growing gravity. Perpendicular to this disk, like the tip of a spinning top, some gas is ejected away from the growing star in a high-energy jet. As this collides with interstellar gas, it gives off radiation, which we can observe with telescopes like Hubble.
To see the jets, we have to shift into the infrared and other spectra, as the radiation is outside normal human vision. These movies represent the first time we’ve seen the dynamics of the jets as opposed to still images. More info on protostellar jets here, you star-freaks.
I want everyone to pay attention to the fact that the time lapse isn’t in minutes or days, it’s in years.
Read this review of Brave by themarysue.com!
I too loved the Tamora Pierce books, and this colored my view of the film. It was wonderful to see that story told in the beauty of Pixar! How refreshing to have a story about mothers and daughters with NO love interest. (Even Mulan had Shang) It is sad that the movie is getting bad reviews from people who can’t appreciate this kind of a story. Jeeze how many films have been about a man on an adventurous journey or deliberating on his identity in relation to his father. I loved the story that Brave told. Some critics may not have been in tears, but I sure was.
I was going to write a review, but this really SUMS IT UP.
Please go read this. Brave was really, really good. And it’s not getting the credit it deserves because of a male-dominated reviewing society.
If you haven’t seen Brave, get to it—and read this review.
