nothing to get hung about
Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery. […] Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that Charles Darwin discovered evolution, and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. And no one ever wonders how we know.
Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery. (via alliterate)

don’t cross oceans for people who wouldn’t cross a puddle for you.

No, do it. Do cross oceans for people. Love people, all people. No conditions attached, no wondering whether or not they’re worthy. Cross oceans, climb mountains. Life and love isn’t about what you gain, it’s about what you give.

Hey Brazilian Police, what did you expect would happen if you lob a tear gas grenade in a country that has some of the best soccer players in the world and where the Confed Cup is currently playing?
Even Beckham couldn’t do it any better….

YES! YES! GO BRAZIL, GO.

Bend it like a Brazilian rioter. 

I’d piss myself if somebody lobbed my teargas back at me with their foot. Holy crap.

I’ve come to realize that I love her and that I’m helplessly bound to her, whatever happens.
