Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) posts on her Facebook page:

This was my first election— first African American girl elected cheerleader at San Fernando High, 1963. I had to fight to integrate the squad, and it was absolutely worth it.


That’s my congresswoman y’all!

I feel like this prompt is just supposed to make you feel guilty that you don’t know your best friend’s eye color.

"How often people speak of art and science as though they were two entirely different things, with no interconnection. An artist is emotional, they think, and uses only his intuition; he sees all at once and has no need of reason. A scientist is cold, they think, and uses only his reason; he argues carefully step by step, and needs no imagination. That is all wrong. The true artist is quite rational as well as imaginative and knows what he is doing; if he does not, his art suffers. The true scientist is quite imaginative as well as rational, and sometimes leaps to solutions where reason can follow only slowly; if he does not, his science suffers."

Isaac Asimov (via kittenp0x)

the reason why people are so hard to read is because they are composed of the letters a, t, c, and g in random sequences and as im sure you know, that doesn’t spell anything

Science is just so darn funny sometimes.

"I love reading another reader’s list of favorites. Even when I find I do not share their tastes or predilections, I am provoked to compare, contrast, and contradict. It is a most healthy exercise, and one altogether fruitful."

T. S. Eliot (via bookoasis)

A truer statement has never been stated. And R., I think this basically sums up our literary relationship.

A cathedral made of bullet casings at the DeYoung museum in San Francisco.  Relevant to conversations last night at the pub, and hauntingly beautiful in form despite (or perhaps because of?) the connotations.

(Mostly, I’m just super proud of this spam.  Which was made last night in a fit of post-thesis productivity.  Why I couldn’t be that productive while actually writing the thing remains a mystery.)
