Just so you know, a lot of images of Mars which you’ll see have been manipulated. A lot of them have boosted contrast and saturation. So if you’ve ever wondered – images like this one are what Mars actually looks like.
Why does this not have more notes?!?
YOU ARE LITERALLY LOOKING THROUGH THE EYES OF A ROBOT ON ANOTHER FUCKING PLANET
If you don’t think that’s the tightest shit, you can get out of my face.
i wanted to reblog this so that everyone who sees it can realize just how amazing this is. you are looking at a photograph taken on an entirely different planet. an entire world that has been completely untouched by humanity until only recently. no human in the history of mankind has ever look at those rocks, the soil, the mountains, and the sky until now. and until we finally manage to set foot there for the very first time, no human has ever seen mars from this perspective with their own two eyes or feel the texture of the martian soil on the bottom of their boots. this was only possible by creating a robot, an actual robot, and shooting way out of the reaches of earth and with extremely careful calculations, have it safely land and deploy right where they want it. it’s a robot on another planet being controlled 225 million kilometers away, seeing and studying and sending information for us.
this is the sort of thing you would see in science fiction movies that are only a few decades old. what was only imagination and possibilities back then is now all in this photograph. im looking forward to see what happens in the coming decades
All her life, Anna has probably been told she was awkward, and not behaved like a princess would. She was very clumsy, and talkative, and just not very princess like. She thought that when she’d find her prince, he would be so sophisticated and help her become sophisticated. She thought she was the only awkward person around…
Kristoff is the opposite of what she imagined as a little girl. He’s gruff, and big, and grumpy at times. But most of all: he’s awkward too. He’s as nervous as she is when he sees her. He’s nervous to kiss her. He’s rambling. Like she does. He’s just like her.
And she realizes that maybe she doesn’t need a prince to "fix" her. Maybe she doesn’t even have to be fixed. As long as Kristoff is here, accepting her awkward ness, and acting as awkward as she…
This is from That’s So Raven, where Chelsea and Raven apply to work at the same clothing shop. Chelsea is white; Raven is black. Chelsea gets the job, despite being utterly horrible at it, while Raven, who has a deep interest in fashion and knows how to handle clothes, does not. The girls find this deeply suspicious, so Chelsea wears a hat with a camera on it and questions the employer. The employer admits what she does in the gif above and Chelsea and Raven submit the footage to a news station.
And THAT is why That’s So Raven is the best TV show ever.
This presentation is about how the objectification of women is used in advertising to sell products mainly aimed at heterosexual males, and is sold to women as a lie: “Being a sex object is empowering”.
Now I agree with her on a lot of what she said, but there’s still the fact that many women, including myself, who feel happier and more confident when they feel like they look good. I love the idea of not having to spend loads of time on getting dressed in the morning (I’d get to sleep for longer before my lectures) but I’m currently sitting here with conditioner in my hair because I hate it when it becomes super frizzy. And hey, I like winged eyeliner no matter how long it takes for me to get it right.
Yes, us ladies need to worry less about how we look for the sake of male attention and female rivalry, and just dress in whatever way makes us feel comfortable and happy.
