I’m having an exhaustingly hyperactive menstrual cycle and all I’m hearing is how the world is a dark, ominous place (like my vagina) from my grandparents’ tv.

More than 800 people have paid as much as $200,000 apiece to reserve seats on commercial flights into space, some of which are expected to launch, at long last, within a year. Space-travel agents are being trained; space suits are being designed for sex appeal as much as for utility; the founder of the Budget hotel chain is developing pods for short- and long-term stays in Earth’s orbit and beyond. Over beers one night, a former high-ranking NASA official, now employed by Sir Richard Branson of the Virgin transportation conglomerate, put it plainly: ‘We happen to be alive at the moment when humanity starts leaving the planet.’ The Era of Private Space Travel is Just Beginning | NY Magazine (via kateoplis)

Is this real life!? Please yes. I’m already starting to save up.

Rhmani made history May 14, 2013 when she became the first female to successfully complete undergraduate pilot training and earn the status of pilot in more than 30 years. She will continue her service as she joins the Kabul Air Wing as a Cessna 208 pilot.

So that’s incredible

How am I spending 4/20 on base?

I’m gonna die.

Here are some lines written by students in grades 3rd-6th:


————————————
[Writing about a family member’s recent death]


The life of my heart is crimson.

My brother went down
to the river
and put dirt on.

Away went a dull winter wind
that rocked harshly, and bent you said,
‘Father, father’.

—————————————
[writing about a terminal illness]


I am feeling burdened
and I taste milk……
I mumble, ‘Please,
please run away.’
But it lives where I live.

———————————-

The owls of midnight hoot like me
shutting the door to nothing.


I have provisions. Binary muffins.
It’s an in/out/in/out kind of universe.
We cannot help you,
this is a universe factory.
A sound of rolling symbols.
Disappearing rocks, screams of lizards.
Sanity must prevail. Save vs. Do Not.


I, the star god,
take bones from the
underworlds of past times
to create mankind.
