Kurtbastian Fic - ‘F**k Buddies’ Chapter 2 (Rated M)

fmhartz91:

At frickin’ last!! I’m so sorry this took forever, but this story has a long, sordid tale behind it. When I first posted this story, I got bullied by some anonymous jerk with too much time on their hands, which put me off uploading the rest. The story is written in its entirety in a spiral notebook which I shoved away out of anger. Then when I decided to let it go and put the story up, the notebook disappeared. I found out later that my son had accidentally taken it to school with him (he was in the fifth grade). Luckily, no one used it, and no therapy was necessary. So, I will get this updated more regularly from now on, and I hope you guys like it because I think it’s really touching toward the end ;)

Thank you all for your patience.

cultural appropriation is putting fireflies in a jar

and letting them light up your bedroom

as you drift off to sleep.

and when you wake up all the lights have flickered out

but only when you’re older do you realize

you slowly suffocated them so

that you could enjoy their glow.

that just knocked the breath from me

I didn’t know there were twenty thousand vegans on tumblr!!!

You can be against animal cruelty and not be a vegan

isn’t killing animals before their natural death from old age cruel? if you eat animals you support the industries that are cruel. also applies to their products ie the slaughter of male calves for the dairy industry and male chicks for the egg industry.

So I came out to Chris Colfer
Me: can I tell you a secret?
Chris: of course!
Me: I'm gay
Chris: really? Me too!
Me: you're one of the first people I've told
Chris: oh my god! Thank you for sharing that with me. I hope you have a great day!
And then we shook hands and it was FANTASTIC OH MY GOD
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)

OH WAIT LEMME TELL YOU ABOUT CECILIA PAYNE.

Cecilia Payne’s mother refused to spend money on her college education, so she won a scholarship to Cambridge.

Cecilia Payne completed her studies, but Cambridge wouldn’t give her a degree because she was a woman, so she said fuck that and moved to the United States to work at Harvard.

Cecilia Payne was the first person ever to earn a Ph.D. in astronomy from Radcliffe College, with what Otto Strauve called “the most brilliant Ph.D. thesis ever written in astronomy.”

Not only did Cecilia Payne discover what the universe is made of, she also discovered what the sun is made of (Henry Norris Russell, a fellow astronomer, is usually given credit for discovering that the sun’s composition is different from the Earth’s, but he came to his conclusions four years later than Payne—after telling her not to publish).

Cecilia Payne is the reason we know basically anything about variable stars (stars whose brightness as seen from earth fluctuates). Literally every other study on variable stars is based on her work.

Cecilia Payne was the first woman to be promoted to full professor from within Harvard, and is often credited with breaking the glass ceiling for women in the Harvard science department and in astronomy, as well as inspiring entire generations of women to take up science.

Cecilia Payne is awesome and everyone should know her.
