This Was Too Funny To Not Reblog..
"Alright, alright. I’ll go…. YEET!"
Did you know that Monet stated that we wished he was born blind. Similarly, Picasso said that painting was a blind man’s profession, because blind people have a clearer vision of reality.
So what is it about the blind that make artists from all around a tad bit jealous?
Scientists looked at famous painter Esref Armagon, a man blind from birth. His art hangs in museums all around the world. He can draw landscapes and scenery with precision. This is his art:
Armagon went to a lab to have his brain scanned as he drew freehand. He was given objects to feel such as a toy or a cup and asked to draw them.
What scientists found was amazing. His brain scan resembled a sighted person’s brain scan.
Although his no visual light reflected of his eyes and entered swept through his visual cortex, his visual cortex was buzzing with activity.
What was going on is that his visual cortex was recruited by other senses such as touch and hearing. Armagon was successfully able to translate touch into images in his mind.

BUT THE COLOR?? HOW??? WHAT????????
I’M JUST AS AMAZED/PERPLEXED AS YOU
Anonymous said: What are you talking with Iggy and a clear channel deal
Lemme serve up this hot tea.
So Iggy Azalea has this deal with Clear Channel which says that she has to get AT LEAST 150 spins on each radio station a day. Clear Channel is a radio company and they own almost every relevant radio station (and if not all of them).
Clear Channel is basically a force in the music industry. An example: Britney Spears’ ban from getting spins from the company because her manager didn’t want to sign a deal with her tour in the early 2000’s. That’s why her music in the early 2000’s peaked so low on Billboard but seemed like huge hits WW. With the CC ban, Britney Spears proved that she doesn’t need radio to become a relevant pop star hence why people call her a pop legend and a force in the industry.
Anyways enough with ha, Iggy’s song gets played on every relevant radio station until it gets 150 spins that day for the next update. This is responsible for:
- High US sales but low WW sales
- Fancy being her ONLY successful single
- Problem being ahead of Fancy on iTunes charts and sales wise but not airplay wise so it wasn’t able to go #1 on the BB Hot 100
The GP has turned completely from albums and onto radio. Whatever is played on the radio, they buy. That’s why Fancy is 3x platnium and was #1 for 7 weeks, because of her spins.
Blah blah blah, other than that, Iggy Azalea is trash. Iggy has airplay but yet her album hasn’t even touched 400k dispite it being out for almost 4 months. Airplay can sell singles, but can’t sell albums and the song Happy is a clear sign of that (no shade) (but yeah it kinda was). Anyways, that’s the Iggy tea.
ALRIGHT SO IT’S 2:30 IN THE MORNING AND I WAS JUST ABOUT TO FALL ASLEEP AND THEN I SAT UP AND ALMOST SCREAMED BECAUSE I WAS STRUCK WITH REALIZATION AND I DISCOVERED THE ULTIMATE TRUTH OF THE UNIVERSE
TELETUBBIES ARE CALLED TELETUBBIES BECAUSE THEY HAVE TELEVISIONS IN THEIR STOMACHS
The mistake people make when they talk about not being able to trust Wikipedia is in the implicit assumption that we could trust encyclopedias as infallible sources before Wikipedia.
I like Wikipedia because I know it could be wrong. Regular encyclopedias can be wrong, too, but my guard was never up in the same way with them as it is with Wikipedia. I like Internet media specifically for the reason that Aaron Sorkin doesn’t like it: because it makes it that much more difficult for me to have any illusions about the fact that the burden of critical thought is on me.
I don’t automatically trust bloggers because a group of people I’ve never met decided to give them a badge that says “reporter” on it. I don’t turn off my critical thinking because they’ve gotten to be some sort of “professional”. I have to judge them on the merits of their writing and history of thoughtfulness or thoughtlessness alone. That is a feature, not a bug, because we should never trust any news media outlet implicitly.
Bully messes with karate champ. [video]
The source video is very, very worth watching. A few things to point out:
The young woman in the dark coat is continually trying to escape from the man. She has spoken to him, she’s pulled away, she’s even tried to walk away before he dragged her back. She hit him as a last resort but it didn’t do anything, he just got more aggressive.
The girl in the white jacket was walking by, recognized that a bad situation was happening, stopped, and intervened. At 0:28 she calls the man out, and continues to call him out until he breaks off attacking the young woman in the dark coat and turns his aggression on her. At which point she defends herself—and then she escorts the young woman in the dark coat safely away.
This is a hero.
Bringing this back.
