When you flip bats upside down they become exceptionally sassy dancers [x].

I have been laughing at this for at least 5 minutes straight.

Chiroptera choreography!

So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.

Stay woke

Is this true?

Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to use their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.



There’s a documentary about this on Netflix called Pink Ribbons, Inc. if anyone’s interested.

Charming visualization from this altogether delightful children’s book about space – an imaginative and illuminating primer on the cosmos to spark awe in the souls of budding Sagans. 

Perhaps one day, we will journey to distant po-tay-toes?

talk about perspective. shit.

Fucking hell.

I remember the first time I saw a map of Africa to scale. My jaw dropped.

I thought the same thing when I compared the map of Alaska to the rest of the U.S.

*realizes joy division did some real quick fs photoelectron spectroscopy for their dumb album cover*

1) Joy Division’s 1979 Unknown Pleasures album cover actually features a data visualization from the first known pulsar, PSR B1919+21, discovered by Jocelyn Bell Burnell in 1967, and discovered by the band’s drummer in the Cambridge Encyclopedia of Astronomy.

2) It is not dumb.

(via A Zoo Where Animals Run Free and Humans Are Confined)
Imagine a zoo where animals are free to roam while humans quietly observe. Danish architects BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) set out to make this a reality with their plan for redesigning Zootopia, a zoo in the city of Givskud. Far from “traditional” zoos where the cages set the distinction between man and beast, BIG’s plan is to create an atmosphere that is experiential to both animals and humans.

These Hilarious Charts Will Show You Exactly Why Correlation Doesn’t Mean Causation (please do not remove source, thanks.)

This is magnificent.

But will increasing global temperatures and their effect on snowfall reduce the number of bedsheet entanglement deaths?
