Hi guys! I wanted to inform you about this great thing that is happening!

These smart fellows have devised a way to create cups, straws, mixers, etc that can detect common date rape drugs. This is an amazing idea and it needs funding! The campaign ends in 35 hours and they are a little short on funding. Please, signal boost this or even give a dollar if you can, it’s a great cause and something that will really change the world!


Only 28 hours left! Check this out and spread the word!

donate or signal boost, they still have about a fifth to go!



Hey! This is pretty awesome, so I thought I’d share here. Even if you can’t donate, signal boosting the fuck out of this is important! 








This is how kids reacted when they were shown same-sex marriage proposal videos. Kids these days. 

"how will we explain homosexuality to our children" I think maybe they should explain it to you


forever reblog

There was this one kid in that video who kept saying that being gay was wrong…..but he couldn’t explain why. The other kids that were his own age could explain their train of thought and why they thought that being gay was ok or not a problem, but he would repeat “It’s just wrong” (or something like that) and that really scares me because he obviously didn’t come to that conclusion on his own, his parents/family/religious leader(s) did and then stuffed it into his head. Of course they can think whatever they want and religious freedom and all that….but this is a five year old who will now forever be biased against people like me, even though I’ve done nothing wrong. And, frankly, that pisses me the fuck off.



Dear tumblr community,

I am a transman named Leigh who would really like to go to a doctor and get hormones (and later top surgery). 

If you’d like to help, there is a button on my blog or click here. For donations over 5 dollars, there are a few things I can do, see under cut.

If you can’t donate but want to help, feel free to reblog. Don’t feel guilty if you don’t either please :) Its quite alright

NASA Physicist Imagines a Warp-Speed Spaceship

Thanks to a NASA physicist, the notion of warp speed might just travel out of sci-fi and into the real world.

NASA’s Harold White has been working since 2010 to develop a warp drive that will allow spacecraft to travel at speeds faster than light — 186,000 miles per second.

White, who heads NASA’s Advanced Propulsion Team, spoke about his conceptual starship at a conference last fall. But interest in his project reached a new level this week when he unveiled images of what the craft might look like.

Created by artist Mark Rademaker, who based them on White’s designs, the images show a technologically detailed spacecraft that wouldn’t look out of place in a “Star Trek” movie. Rademaker says creating them took more than 1,600 hours.

At the SpaceVision 2013 Space Conference last November in Phoenix, White talked about his design, the concepts behind it and the progress that’s been made in warp-drive development over the decades. He discussed the idea of a “space warp,” a loophole in the theory of general relativity that would allow for massive distances to be traveled very quickly, reducing travel times from thousands of years to days.

In his speech, White described space warps as faraway galaxies that can bend light around them. They work on the principle of bending space both in front of and behind a spacecraft. This would essentially allow for the empty space behind the craft to expand, both pushing and pulling it forward at the same time. The concept is similar to that of an escalator or moving walkway.

"There’s no speed limit on the expansion and contraction of space," White said at the conference. “You can actually find a way to get around what I like to call the 11th commandment: Thou shall not exceed the speed of light.”
