Fun fact: When I was a kid I thought Mary-Kate and Ashley were three people.
Sometimes I feel like my friends are all “I need emotional support!” and this is the best I can offer.
i love how they didn’t even say any thing. they just all stood there…
dude they formed a line. a literal line.

Taking advantage of the Museum of Modern Art’s late Friday hours to check out the new "Frank Lloyd Wright and the City: Density vs. Dispersal" exhibit. Did you know that admission after 4 pm is free every Friday, thanks to UNIQLO?
I am several thousand miles away from where I REALLY need to be right now.
Frank Lloyd Wright (American, 1867-1959)
Broadacre City, proposed 1932. Unbuilt.
In 1932, when Frank Lloyd Wright envisioned a modern, decentralized city, he pictured each individual family living separately, in direct contact with nature. He proposed building 2,200 one-acre plots, one per family. A train station would link to the few apartment buildings and offices, but most transportation would occur via an elaborate freeway system. Wright assumed eventually the automobile would give way to fast, efficient airships and non-polluting land vehicles. Wright did not plan pedestrian or bicycle paths, likely assuming that airships would be preferred by the occupants of Broadacre City.
Broadacre City was proposed at a time when suburbia was a new dream, before suburban sprawl would consume thousands of acres of virgin land across the US into housing tracts, strip malls, and parking lots.
wow this is fucking historic as fuck i can’t believe im seeing this
Okay The Bloop is one of my FAVORITE THINGS so here’s a really simple list of things about it:
- No one knows what made the sound. Scientists know it wasn’t made by anything man-made (submarines, bombs, etc) or by anything geological (volcanoes, earthquakes, etc), BUT
- The sound was several times louder than any sound ever recorded from the earth’s loudest animal, the blue whale.
- The sound was powerful and loud enough to be recorded simultaneously at three different stations up to 4800km/2982mi away from each other
- That’s roughly the distance between Seattle, WA, Jacksonville, FL and Mexico City
- People now think that the sound was made by an iceberg either breaking or scraping against the ocean floor, but again, no one knows for sure.
- The Bloop is just one of many Unidentified Sounds, counting among its ranks : Julia, Train, Slow Down, Whistle and Upsweep.
Vaccine Infographic by Leon Farrant.
I often speak with patients who tell me that they do not wish to be vaccinated because they do not see the point, that it is a farce, that it can cause autism (it does not), despite educating and informing them of the reasons behind it.
In the same way that people who did not grow up during the great wars of the mid-twentieth century have little frame of reference as to what the toll of total war can be, neither can a newer generation of people who have never seen the effects of polio, smallpox, and measles ravage humanity. For many people in the developed world, these are just distant, faded memories captured in the pages of medical textbooks.
I sincerely hope that the understanding of why we vaccinate does not become lost over time, that people need not fall victim to these preventable diseases; otherwise, the suffering, the challenges, and the research that went into developing these vaccines were all for nothing.
