Scientists Successfully Implant Lungs into Fish
Scientists have successfully created a goldfish that is capable of breathing atmospheric air. Using advanced microsurgery techniques, researchers at the New South Wales Veterinary Institute implanted a pair of frog lungs into the fish, which survived out of water for 2 hours.
The lungs were connected to the respiratory surface that were naturally found in the gills. The fish was able to conduct gas exchange through the lungs instead of the gills, which allowed it to breath in a terrestrial environment. A very humid chamber was constructed for the goldfish so that it did not dehydrate.

SCIENCE ISN’T ABOUT WHY IT’S ABOUT WHY NOT

i don’t think you guys understand how important this is if we’re able to put lungs in fish it means we may be able to put gills in humans which means we’re one step closer to becoming mermaids

i just realized that “never” is a contraction of “not ever”

 and “blush” is a contraction of “blood rush”

also “studying” is a contraction of “student dying”

You know it’s been nearly 10 and a half months since the last homestuck update and I never really thought of how BIG of a cliffhanger we were left with

I mean, I know hussie mentioned how it couldnt be avoided but like

Jade just died, terezi is on the brink of death, karkat and kanaya are on the brink of flipping their shit, aranea’s got the ring and is fighting with an unconcious evil jane, three noir’s are about to converge on one location, rose is so close to meeting her alt-universe mother again, and the condesce showed up just in time to flip her own shit

Like what the fuck

kimpissible:

its so sad that every boy who dresses remotely nice is labeled as gay like that’s not even offensive to gay people it just means straight boys dress like shit 

the trolls at the waterpark
  • karkat: he wears too much sunblock and slips multiple times on the pavement
  • aradia: she doesn't even swim she just gets food from the concession stand and sits with sollux the whole time
  • tavros: he gets stuck in a float tube and circles the lazy river about 20 times before gamzee finds him and helps him out
  • sollux: he brought his husktop with him and got it wet
  • nepeta: went in the lazy river rapids with equius and fell out and got seperated from him. just curled up on the lounge for the rest of the day. she hated the water. equius insisted she go.
  • kanaya: she spent half the time searching for equius because he refused to put on sunblock. also went on the 70 foot tall waterslide that drops straight down. didn't scream. she is strong.
  • terezi: went on the dragon themed water slide about 10 times until vriska made her stop
  • vriska: layed in the sun for half the trip tanning. tried to flip tavros in the lazy river. tripped karkat. made terezi stop going on the dragon themed waterslide. then took a nap. she was almost left behind until tavros went back and got her.
  • equius: refused to put on sunblock because he is STRONG. ended up getting sunburned all over his body. couldn't move for 3 days.
  • gamzee: he went on all the rides. all of them. his face paint washed off and he got upset for 2 seconds before seeing the lazy river. floated in it until he saw tavros and helped him out.
  • eridan: he didn't wanna go. feferi made him. he was upset the entire time. had to reform his hair after it fell flat when he got out from a waterslide.
  • feferi: she didn't leave. police had to come. she never left. shes still there. swimming, 3 days later. eridan is worried. the police gave up. she is too strong

new undies: cute stretchmarks: also cute

No no no and NO stretch marks are never cute!! wtf too lazy to go get some cocoa butter and use it daily? We all have stretch marks but we can get rid of it.. People should take care of themselves and if cocoa butter didnt work for you make an appointment for a laser stretch mark removal dont be a lazy ass


all stretch marks are beautiful no exceptions 

stretch marks are perfectly fine and natural and beautiful, free lightning bolt tattoos yo
cocoa butter is a preventative that does not always work, and smells and stains clothes and oh yeah, since a lot of people get stretch marks just from growing NOT from weight, theyd have to slather their whole body and no one really wants to do that or smell like that so strongly.
laser treatment? really? you want people to pay $1000+/appt (usually takes a few treatments) to get rid of something perfectly natural because you’ve named yourself standard of the fucking world and think we all live to please you? most people dont have that money and if they do thats not what they want to spend it on.
also fuck you.

I usually don’t reblog ladies in undies, but for real. Don’t fuckin’ knock people over stretchmarks, or anything on their bodies for that matter. I’ve been underweight all my life and have them from growing. They happen. The just do.

IF YOU HAD ROOM WITH ABSOLUTELY NOTHING IN IT AND THE WALLS CEILING AND FLOOR WERE MADE OF MIRROR WHAT WOULD IT LOOK LIKE IN THE MIRRORS

No.

Holy shit I asked my dad who’s a physics teacher and he just looked at me, looked at the table, looked at me, tried not to smile, looked angry, and started to look up where you can buy big mirrors.

this is an actual room of mirrors.

as you can see, it leads to glitches in the matrix

99-Year-Old Lady Sews A Dress A Day For Children In Need 

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.

Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.

Disney movies in order of historical setting

(Excludes most of the package films. Some films, eg The Lion King, are impossible to pin down exactly and some, like Aladdin and Treasure Planet, are anachronistic, so these are estimations. A few have been split into 2 if there is more than one time period in the movie, and sequels have been put together.)
