    Interestingly: Specifically, both men and women mostly interrupt women, and rarely interrupt men.

    i observe often that when a dude talks, and a woman interrupts, he just keeps going and she shuts up. why shouldn’t she? he was talking.

    when a woman talks, and a dude interrupts, she stops to let him finish. why shouldn’t she? he was talking.

    i observe this behavior within myself even though i am a guy these days. apparently misogyny still affects you after you change your major, who knew

    This even happens when the person talking is an interpreter. I don’t use mouth noises to talk so I have someone interpret my ASL. When the person interpreting for me is female, she will get interrupted frequently but when it is a male they are almost never interrupted. Even though he is interpreting for a female.

    That is so interesting. I think the next step is to do SCIENCE. Have the person interpreting wear those Fake Boob pillow things that loop around your neck and give you fake boobs, and a really obvious pubic wig with an arrow pointing to it saying “no pee-pee”, and see if they start getting interrupted more.

    The Ordinary-Sized Stuff

    hopefultreefrog:

    The Ordinary-Sized Stuff is a blog dedicated to finding those mythical scientific research papers that say an awful lot in the most incomprehensible language, and translating that to something we can all use. We look at various topics that interest us, and light-heartedly relay the core message, whilst poking a small amount of fun at the scientist behind it. All in good fun, we promise!!

    Read up on why you should all be drinking tea. You love tea, right?

    CATS

    let’s talk about housecats and how fucking weird they are evolutionarily/anthropologically

    like who thought it was a good idea to have tiny malicious predators in our homes anyways????? (not us actually)

    are they even domesticated????!!!?? (yes) do they even feel LOVE???????!!? (yes)

    LET’S LEARN ABOUT CATS

    why do we have butt cheeks i dont understand why did we evolve this way

    what use do butt cheeks have 

    oh my god I HAVE THIS KNOWLEDGE

    fun fact: butt-cheeks are one of the things that make us superior to other animals okay note that other apes do not have butt-cheeks

    okay don’t quote me on this because I only did sixthform-bio and I’m sure of forgotten loads of stuff but here’s the down-low

    back when we were evolving from ape to human, one of the most important things that happened was when our spine started meeting our brains at a sort of 90 degree angle instead of like 45 degrees, which meant that we could straighten up and walk on two legs which was a pretty rad development

    except alas oh no our muscles weren’t built to allow us to walk around on two legs because that requires a sort of twisty motion of your hips as opposed to whatever the fuck it is everything else does AND SO ape-people started evolving with longer, narrower waists so that our bodies could twist with every footstep and we could strut along the fashionable catwalk that is neanderthal evolution

    but then once this had happened, people realised that we had an advantage over other animals and we would be better at chasing and killing them but we weren’t very good at running

    so that’s when we developed the glutenus maximus which is a really badass-sounding name for the muscle in your derriere which helps us to support our spine in an upright position so we don’t get tired, and helps the legs to rotate nicely so that we can run, and has a nice big fat storage around it to help us get energy so that we can run

    and that, basically, is the butt-cheek

    tl;dr - butt-cheeks were the result of thousands of years of natural selection so that we could run fast and slaughter things

    reblobbing this for “fashionable catwalk that is neanderthal evolution”

    also here’s a source that basically says the same thing.

We Live In The Future
A team of physicists at the University of Dundee have created a real-life sonic screwdriver - yes, I’m serious.
The Doctor’s trusty tool was replicated using ultrasound energy capable of manipulating an object away from itself and, using a component of momentum which exerts torque on the object, a helix-shaped vortex beam then causes the item to rotate.
Researchers hope to use this breakthrough in ultrasound technology for future endeavors regarding non-invasive surgery, but we’re just hoping they figured out how to make it work on wood.

This simulation shows the future behaviour of a gas cloud that has been observed approaching the supermassive black hole at the centre of the Milky Way. This is the first time ever that the approach of such a doomed cloud to a supermassive black hole has been observed and it is expected to break up completely during 2013.

    Cells by They Might Be Giants on Grooveshark

    mchlhffm asked: How do you think Peter Parker would deal with the Young Avengers while trying to teach them Science in class? He was a high school teacher for a time, so why not teach young superheroes?

    There is only one reasonable way of teaching them. In song. I’m sorry hun, I didn’t finish the song completely. I just do not want to look at this anymore /SOBS.
