wow this is quite powerful
“Tourists get the full experience of the power of a calving glacier while on a boat trip off Ilulissat, Greenland. Fortunately, and somewhat amazingly, nobody was hurt.”
Check this video out, be it dream or nightmare fuel, it’ll be sure to leave some kind of impression on your mind. :50 is where life starts to get interesting.
How wind-blown Japanese tsunami debris may move across the Pacific
“Objects that float mostly above the surface of the water, like chunks of styrofoam, are more affected by the speed of the wind than the speed of the water, so they scud quickly across the ocean surface. This means they have “high windage,” and are shown by the red dots in the model. Objects that float half-in, half-out of the water, like fishing buoys and containers, have medium windage and move somewhat faster than the water (green dots). Objects that don’t float above the surface of the water, like fishing nets and plastic crates, have low windage and move the same speed the water (purple dots).
This explains why debris objects appear to be showing up earlier than scientists originally expected – high windage objects such as the dock found in Oregon and the soccer ball found in Alaska moved relatively quickly across the ocean.”

REDUCE THE NEED FOR PLASTIC BAGS WITH A TRADITIONAL JAPANESE ECO BAG
Furoshiki is a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth which is used to carry many different items and can be a great way to help the environment by using as a re-usable eco-shopping cloth.
I saw this maybe a year ago, and like the stunning genius I am, never saved it in any capacity for future reference. Fixed that. I attempted the fourth from the bottom using one of my old bandanas with a hot lunch I carried back to work, it didn’t look half as pretty as these photos do, though.
God has spoken!
THE LORD HATH SPOKEN
I disagree. At least in the case of straight males, I do.
Cuz of this quote: ”Homophobia: the fear that gay men will treat you the way you treat women.”
To be fair, this still applies to someone who is a complete asshole.
Really? I’m kinda relieved that he was stupid enough to pick someone who’d essentially alienate the majority of the voting public, outside of the swing states that are feverishly working hard on insuring anyone who isn’t white and above middle class income will have to go through bureaucratic hell to vote.
If he’d selected Condoleezza Rice, he would’ve had a veep with enough political and demographic lure to have a chance with those voters. All we really need now is for enough of the voting public who don’t want these jackasses in office to show up to the damn polls. But how very sad that this campaign, and my own personal vote, will not be to keep President Obama in office, but to keep Rn’R of the R’s the hell out.
