I’ve always found this piece of animation extremely beautiful and emotional. Mikasa wasn’t born a BAMF, she was made a BAMF. Whenever people give her shit for being the way she is, I want to just show them these gifs. She lost her parents, twice. Eren is her only family now. Her one and only remaining family member.

Remember how mad she first got when Eren said he wanted to join the Scouting Legion? It wasn’t just because she was worried, no, it was because she knew that if he joined, she would have to join too. So, when he said that, he basically signed her death sentence. Because that’s what awaits outside the walls. And Eren never even realized any of it. Mikasa became bad ass because she had to protect Eren, and because of Eren’s habit of fucking things up for himself. Mikasa has always cleaned up his messes. She’s always been there in the background, making sure Eren’s okay. That’s why she seems emotionless and obsessive. That’s why she is the way she is. That’s also why she was able to become one of humanity’s strongest soldiers of all time. Not because she wanted to, but because she had to.

And oh, she’s 15 years old.

Don’t shit on Mikasa. Never shit on Mikasa.

AMEN

Grüner See (Green Lake) is a lake in Styria, AustriaIn the winter you’ll find crisp, tranquil grasslands and lake that is only about 3 to 6 feet deep.  However, during the spring, when the temperature rises and the snow melts, the basin of land below the mountains fills with water. The lake reaches its maximum depth of around 40 feet from mid-May to June and is claimed to look the most beautiful at this time.

In The Not So Distant Future, Glow-In-The-Dark Trees Could Replace Street Lights

Is that… is that even healthy?

There are sea organisms and fungi which glow in the dark and there’s fireflies and jellyfish which glow in the dark. It doesn’t do them any harm nor does it do the people around them any harm. I would say its pretty healthy, as well as it would mean more photosynthesis happening in cities which mean cleaner air.

I was just curious about how they were doing it and for some reason I didn’t think to click the link. But thanks! It makes more sense now. I was afraid it was some kind of chemical thing.

nah just genetic modification using existing bioluminescent genes. Genetics is really cool, and so is bioluminescence. I mean they’ve already made pigs glow using jellyfish genes and pigs are waaay more complicated than trees iirc. So they’re actually (i think) less likely to muck it up with trees.

In which case

GLOWY

FORESTS

GLOWY

TREES

GLOWY

EVERYTHING

(I like glowy things)

people literally cannot get out antonio french is telling him to knock on doors if he has to

police/military have placed a physical road blockade, a media blackout, and a nofly zone, over the neighborhood where mike brown was murdered were the only eye witnesses live, at the heart of the protests, under the guise of stopping a “gun battle btwn cops and gangs”. there is nothing come out of canfield right now that i can find, which is absolutely terrifying.
