Why do the dots disappear?Nature News via Why Evolution Is True

This is one of the most baffling illusions I’ve ever seen.
Take a look at the gif above. First, look at any yellow dot as the figure moves. The yellow dot remains present and stationary.
If you concentrate on all three yellow dots, they remain there as well.
But now concentrate on the central green dot. You will see one or more of the yellow dots disappearing and then reappearing sporadically. They are not—this is an optical illusion.
The dots remain and your brain simply doesn’t register their presence from time to time. Weird, eh?

Not to beat a dead horse, but this is a nice illustration of the point that it’s a lot better to have autism than measles, mumps, rubella, polio, tetanus, etc. …

This is a lion making a kill in the wild. I know it’s very graphic but I think it’s important to show just how brutal nature can be.

Every introvert alive knows the exquisite pleasure of stepping from the clamor of a party into the bathroom and closing the door.

Would you rather: Go doggy style or reverse cowgirl?

It would depend.. I don’t really want to look at his feet.. if I am on top then I tend to be in ‘control’ and I like to watch his face. Doggy style is good, and he really enjoys it too, but then I don’t see anything then either :\

So really, it depends on both of our moods. If he is being more in control, then doggy. If I am then reverse cowgirl though I would prefer normal cowgirl to watch his face as I do certain things :)

If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d say they were a "fighter" or an "inspiration". But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone "don’t be like him, please seek help". That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them.

WHAT IS PLAN B?

If I met you we would go for a drink together and spend many fun hours trash talking everyone on tumblr (except the people we like of course). Then I would make you teach me how to play video games and insist that we do a tinychat (or whatever) with all our favourite mutuals.

I’m not sure I could teach you how to play video games, I’m really not very good at them :\

I could take you out to watch the football though :D
