There is no other species on the Earth that does science. It is, so far, entirely a human invention, evolved by natural selection in the cerebral cortex for one simple reason: it works. It is not perfect. It can be misused. It is only a tool. But it is by far the best tool we have, self-correcting, ongoing, applicable to everything. It has two rules. First: there are no sacred truths; all assumptions must be critically examined; arguments from authority are worthless. Second: whatever is inconsistent with the facts must be discarded or revised. We must understand the Cosmos as it is and not confuse how it is with how we wish it to be.

Carl Sagan, in Cosmos. New York: Random House. 1980: p.332

We must not confuse how things are
with how we wish them to be.

Wanted to a trio of famous astrophysicists as an art card set: Carl Sagan, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Stephen Hawking.  Might do more later, but I really wanted to have these three to start. :)

Heavy Cavalry Officer’s Sword

  • Pattern 1796
  • Dated: circa 1810 

The blade of this weapon, made by I Gill, is straight and fullered. It is also blued and engraved with fine decoration, including the 1801-16 Royal coat of arms, a trophy of arms, the cypher ‘G R’, and a mounted cavalryman with a sword and carbine. The pierced steel ‘ladder’ guard has a ribbed wooden grip covered in leather and bound with silver wire.

Of course they know.

[That Vulture article from April 2013]

People really need to read the article because Mark Ruffalo’s response was amazing.

He did not ridicule the fans for their slash art. He didn’t say they were gross. He instead GOT EXCITED and praised them for being so creative and taking the characters to heart and running with them.

Also, ugh those fucking two they are so cute

Where can I get one?

I despise my own hypersensitiveness, which requires so much reassurance. It is certainly abnormal to crave so much to be loved and understood.
