I consistently forget these tricks. Now I have a visual. Thanks, Internet.

I wish I’d known this in undergrad.

Sending this to my coworkers on Monday.

The mail man came today with a delivery from Shaw Pipe Company. Two beautiful handmade cobs with pouches. Thanks guys!

I’m not a big cob guy but these are spectacular.

My wife’s great grandmother, Granny Buck, have her a corncob pipe when she was about 6 years old. She would get cigarette butts out of the trash and fill her pipe with the tobacco.

bobs burgers is an example of how fucking funny things can be when yoU ACTUALLY UTALISE YOUR FEMALE CHARACTERS FOR COMEDY INSTEAD OF HAVING THEM STAND THERE ROLLING THEIR EYES

DO YOU SEE

This is something that bugs me about comedies that run the gamut from Monty Python, to Bob’s Burgers:

They’d rather have men do impressions of women than actually have women take on a leading role.

how may i detach from my emotions without becoming passive?

lazyyogi:

Sitting beside a running river, do you need to detach yourself from the fish swimming by?

They come and they go. 

Your emotions are already unattached to you. The problem does not lie in emotion but rather the way in which the way you relate to your emotions. 

When you mentally cling to certain emotions in order to maintain a sense of normalcy or self, you are enacting delusion. When you avoid certain emotions because of the way they confuse you and cause pain, you are again trapped in delusion. 

Through the practices of daily meditation and mindfulness, you acclimate yourself to staying right where you are regardless of whatever you are feeling. In this way, you can experience the full range of feeling even while knowing for yourself that you are more than any emotion. 

That is the beginning of peace. 

I would also recommend the book The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. 

Namaste :)

Unwitting humans assist lizard invasions across the Caribbean

For centuries, Caribbean anole lizards have been homebodies. Species have tended to stick to the islands where they evolved, because sailing across the vast distances of ocean separating them isn’t exactly easy for most land dwellers. As a result, geographically isolated islands tend to have fewer species overall, whereas less isolated islands usually boast more. But now scientists think this accepted ecological wisdom may need to be revised, and it’s all humans’ fault. When researchers studied the present-day distribution of anole lizard species across the Caribbean, they found that an island’s geographic isolation no longer necessarily corresponded to fewer species. Instead, it was all about its economic isolation within the global trade network. That’s because, like many species, anole lizards have started hitching rides on cargo ships, making it much easier for them to reach far-flung islands. The more trade an island participates in, the more species diversity it tends to have, no matter its geographic location, the team reports online today in Nature. The flip side is that economic isolation might protect native lizard species from newly imported competitors. Cuba, for example, would rapidly gain 1.65 lizard species if the United States lifted its trade embargo, the researchers predict.

Child Maltreatment Alters Obesity-linked Hormone

Children who are maltreated may be at an increased risk of obesity and inflammatory disorders because of low levels of leptin — a hormone involved in regulating appetite, according to new research from King’s College London.

The findings, published in Translational Psychiatry, suggest leptin deficiency may contribute to physical health problems associated with early life stress, and provide a possible target in disease prevention.
