We’ve come to expect impossible, even improbable standards of beauty to populate our magazines and our television shows. It’s another thing entirely to find they’ve invaded our workplace.

Watch Vox’s full video to see the many other ways these unrealistic beauty standards effect where we work.

What are the standards that make one attractive vs. unattractive in these graphs is my question

I’m impressed by Penny’s argument

can the show just be the three of them

the show should be just the three of them

I honestly think the show with these three would be amazing

Honestly, not to go too much on a tangent but a show with just nerdy females in general is brilliant. It goes against the whole “girls don’t aren’t nerds” stereotype that is out there. It might put an end to the blatant sexism that exists in the comic book universes as well as in video games. When I was growing up my parents never would buy me video games/comic books because those are for little boys. Well guess what I’m a 20 year old girl who fucking loves comics! So maybe if more scenes like this were popular on TV of female characters nerd-gasming like this it would put an end to this rubbish and a little girl can walk into forbidden planet and feel no shame in buying a spiderman comic!

Hey. You. Yeah you.


Being bisexual is totally 100% okay.

You are not “half gay”. You are not “looking for attention”. You are not “going through a phase” and this is not you “slowly accepting that you’re gay”.

You are not fake. Your sexuality is real.

You. Are. Real.

And anyone who says any different is just an ignorant who doesn’t know anything.

You aren’t alone. Thousands of people are bisexual and they’re real, too.

You are a person just like everybody else and you’re going to do great.


Life on Earth

Single Primordial Ancestor
The living organisms are composed of cells and despite the many differences in appearance and function, all cells have three elements in common: plasma membrane, cytoplasm, and DNA.  Similar biochemical reactions that constitute the metabolism (development, energy production, waste disposal) take place inside the cells. And they contain the hereditary information encoded in molecules of deoxyribonucleic acid, that direct the cellular activities and reproduction. These shared characteristics and the presence of identical or almost identical molecules, demonstrate that every living being is related and they descend from a common ancestor.

Multiple Primordial Ancestors
Nobody can be positive that various types of life didn’t originate on our planet, billions of years ago. But, even if that happened, these hypothetical forms of life —different from the one we know— must have gone extinct very “quickly”, without leaving any trace. The fossil record, instead, tell us that the first cells go back at least 3.5 billion years, they belong to a cyanobacteria-like organism and they are very similar to the modern ones.

Current Primordial Ancestors Formation
Okay, but why aren’t new “ancestors” forming on present-day Earth?  There are two problems. The chemical composition of the oceans and the competition. In the Precambrian, there was no oxygen in the atmosphere/hydrosphere and there was a lot of CO2. Although it may seem absurd, this reducing environment was more conducive to the development of life as we know it. Then, those organisms have evolved, have diversified themselves, have occupied all the possible space, and have become more efficient in exploiting resources, denying the possibility to any other —at this point ineffective— pre-biotic system to develop.
