According to the laws of physics, a planet in the shape of a doughnut (toroid) could exist. Physicist Anders Sandberg says that such planets would have very short nights and days, an arid outer equator, twilight polar regions, moons in strange orbits and regions with very different gravity and seasons.

THE STORY POTENTIAL FOR THIS IS AMAZING YOU COULD HAVE TWO ENTIRELY DIFFERENT CIVILIZATIONS SEPARATED BY DESERT ON THE OUTSIDE AND AN PERMANENT NIGHT-WINTER ON THE INSIDEYOU COULD (WITH A LITTLE FUDGING ON TIDES OR SOME STABILIZATION FORCE) HAVE MOONS THAT GO THROUGH THE FUCKING HOLE, WITH LUNAR-POWERED SORCERERS LIVING ON THE INNER EQUATOR IN GIANT ICE CASTLES WAITING FOR THE TIME OF THE MONTH WHEN THE MOON ILLUMINATES THE ETERNAL NIGHTTIME AND THEIR SPELLS HAVE THE MOST POWER
YOU COULD HAVE ENTIRELY DIFFERENT SPECIES THAT EVOLVED ON OPPOSITE SIDES WHO ARE BASICALLY ALIENS ON THE SAME PLANET AND WHOEVER CROSSES THE GIANT DESERT OR ARCTIC CIRCLE (HEH) MAKES FIRST CONTACT
THIS IS SO COOL
THIS IS SO COOL
I WANT TO RUN FIFTY THOUSAND GAMES ON WORLDS LIKE THIS HOLY FUCK

This is a cool reference… a gemstone solar system!

Pluto looks so cute! Tiger’s eye (Saturn) is actually one of my favorites even though I’m Neptune-ruled.

I’m Mars-ruled and I LOVE Carnelian. 
I also love Amber, Tiger’s Eye, and Azurite. Though I’d argue that Earth should be Azure-Malachite. 

I’m Mercury-ruled being a Virgo and damn I want all of these on a necklace or something

How I feel about religion. God should be presented as what he is, love and kindness. Stop using his name to justify your racism, homophobia and sexism

I’m not religious, but this comic is flipping adorable.

I am religious, and I wish more religious people felt this way.

Michaela DePrince 

 THIS IS SO FUCKING IMPORTANT!

black ballerina excellence

So gorgeous and elegant

Why is this important? i see a girl doing ballet, stop outlining difference, its important we just admire the skills, and afore mentioned ellegance

First of all shut the fuck up and have several seats 

and heres why in Michaela’s own words what she had to go through beig BLACK and still goes through

When she was around 8 and rehearsing for The Nutcracker, just a few days before the performance she was told, “I’m sorry, you can’t do it. America’s not ready for a black girl ballerina.”

For Michaela, “to say this to an 8-year-old is just devastating. It was terrible.”

When she was 9, a teacher told her mother: “I don’t like to put money into black dancers because they grow up and end up having big boobs and big hips.”

The dancer looked down at her petite figure and protested, “I don’t have boobs. I don’t get it.”

Instead of getting her down, “It makes me more determined,” she said. “Because I’ve been through so much, I know now that I can make it and I can help other kids who have been in really bad situations realize that they can make it too.”

This is why it is important, for little Black girls to see a black ballerina made it despite being discriminated against because of her skin color!!! 

This is such a Great Message

sometimes we complain about the cross we bear not realizing that it’s preparing us for the dip in the road that God can see and we cannot…

Forever reblog.

A quick and dirty chart to tarot cards and their common meanings. Be open to different interpretations of these words. Researching deeper into the meaning of each card is recommended if things are still unclear, or these definitions aren’t jiving with you.

A great quick reference for people just starting to lose the book and go in with only the cards. With years of reading, I still haven’t memorized them. But like faelight said, researching deeper is recommended. (The book and the chart may say one thing, but if your gut says another, it’s probably right).

handy quick reference! great inspiration to make your own, too.

I’ve reblogged this before, but I find this chart pretty danged helpful so I’m reblogging it again so I don’t lose it.

I’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR THIS POST FOR MONTHS.

You should’ve asked me. A) I have the images saved on my phone for personal reference B) because it’s saved to my phone, I know it’s in my tarot tag somewhere. BUT YEY NOW YOU HAVE FOUND IT.

Reblogging again so people see it because damn if it ain’t handy.

Im thinking about using this in mtmy BOS

The Holocaust Remembrance thing they set up at the University near me still lists my people as “Gypsies” instead of Romani…really??? It still hasn’t occurred to them that this is a slur? I want to find out who organizes it and give them a piece of my mind…

PLEASE DO

I’m going to try when I figure out who organized it. I just can’t believe people still don’t know that this is a slur? I’ve heard it so often on my campus. It drives me up the wall. It’s one thing if you’re using it in a historical context (as in, that’s the time it’s set and that’s why people are speaking in that manner, back when people used it as a slur and it’s apparent in the narrative that it is indeed a slur) but it’s another to claim this is a memorial to those who lost their lives in the Holocaust and still label them with the slur that has caused and continues to cause so much pain. It makes me sick.
