Your bottled water habit is sucking California dry

If you’re reading this, chances are very high that your home has at least one — and maybe more! — magic appliance that produces clean water suitable for drinking. That’s one reason to avoid paying for bottled water.

Another reason? There’s a good chance the water you’re buying at the supermarket was bottled in California, a state currently enduring a severe drought.

Turn on the tap instead Follow micdotcom

EVERYONE PLEASE AT LEAST TAKE A QUICK SECOND TO LOOK AT THIS

BECAUSE IT IS EFFECTING THE EXACT AREA I LIVE IN

Lots of people believe bottled water is safer and cleaner than tap water, when in reality there’s no evidence proving such a thing.

Penn & Teller’s Bullshit!: Bottled Water segment, gives a very good and thorough summary of the bottled water culture https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHx6BX3HZJc

You want better water? Buy a Zero filter. SRSLY. Stop buying bottled if possible. You need water with you? Get reusable acrylic or glass water bottles (wrapped in a silicon sleeve) and fill it up from your filter pitcher. SAVE MONEY, SAVE MY STATE

stop drinking bottled water, mother fuckers

I can’t even hear what this dude’s saying but look at how ineffectually angry this bird is.

I’ve had days where I’ve wanted ti shriek like this at people too.
As a side note, I love that barn owls are used to often in art, and considered the most beautiful species, yet they make a noise like Satan’s chalkboard.
Majestic.

So much for owls saying hoot :U

"Are we ready, little one?"

*SCREECH OF MURDEROUS RAGE*

I’ve got nothing but love for folks who call angry, screeching predators ‘little one’.

Coldest Star Found—No Hotter Than Fresh Coffee
According to a new study, a star discovered 75 light-years away is no warmer than a freshly brewed cup of coffee.
Dubbed CFBDSIR 1458 10b, the star is what’s called a brown dwarf. These oddball objects are often called failed stars, because they have starlike heat and chemical properties but don’t have enough mass for the crush of gravity to ignite nuclear fusion at their cores.
With surface temperatures hovering around 206 degrees F (97 degrees C), the newfound star is the coldest brown dwarf seen to date.
Keep reading.

I’m gonna…I’m gonna touch it..

Some harsh but very very true words

Some people took offense with this on Twitter. But as a writer struggling with anxiety, I’d say: if you’re not ready to submit without apologizing for your work, you are not ready to submit. 
Never apologize for your work. 

I think he comes off a little harsh here but I also think it’s genuinely good advice. I’m no stranger to the “everything I make is terrible” brain weasels, but seriously, don’t say that to someone you’re submitting your work to professionally. I mean, would you roll up to a job interview and say “hey, I’m probably not very qualified for this job, but consider hiring me anyway”? I’m gonna go ahead and say you would probably not.
Fake it til you make it if you have to. Tell the voice in your head that tells you that thing you made is terrible that YOU may have no choice but to listen to its bullshit, but you’re not going to make anyone else listen to its bullshit. I know it’s not easy, but work at it anyway.

I don’t think it comes off as harsh at all—I work in publishing and this is pretty standard wisdom. You wouldn’t do this applying for a job in any other field, regardless of how you actually felt about your abilities; it’s not different just because you’re an artist.

Please don’t be mean to freshmen. Please don’t be mean to younger kids for no reason. It’s already difficult enough going through the transition process of changing schools. They don’t need you to be an asshole to them for no reason on top of that.

Once you’re a senior, you’ll feel different about this. Trust me.

I am a senior. 
And if you’re a senior you should ESPECIALLY not be harassing freshmen. you should know better.
