Fun guy chillin’ in South American rainforest finds plastic-eating fungi
Seriously, though this is kind of a big deal. Know that big problem we have? You know, the one involving a crapload of used plastic hanging around in landfills with nowhere to biodegrade for a couple million years? Well, Jonathan Russell might’ve solved that problem. See, Russell and his fellow Yale students went to Ecuador, where they found a new kind of fungus they’re calling Pestalotiopsis microspora. Big deal, you’re thinking. Anyone can find fungus anywhere! Well, something his fellow students found out after the fact is that this fungus can live on a diet of polyurethane alone — and even crazier, it doesn’t even need air to do so! In other words, we could potentially put it at the bottom of a landfill and cover it with plastic, and it would do the rest of the work. This might be game-changing if it works as advertised.

I just realized that the lack of acceptance for asexuals is literally the dumbest thing.
Like, you can’t handle the thought of two dudes kissing? Okay you’re dumb and terrible whatever.
But you can’t handle the idea… Of someone… Not kissing anyone? What are you worried about? They’re gonna eat too much mac n cheese?? Draw too many dinosaurs??? Tell me

The ONLY reason white people really believe black pride is white hate, is simply because white pride IS MOST DEFINITELY black hate (along with all the other colors)

'Until We Could' Is The Tear-Jerker Poem Celebrating Gay Marriage That Needs To Be Heard

"Until We Could" is a picture of the love shared in committed same-sex relationships. In the beautiful words, written by inaugural poet Richard Blanco and narrated by actors Robin Wright and Ben Foster, is the bond shared between couples who yearned to be legally married.

Watch the rest of the video here and try not to cry as it follows five other LGBTQ couples and their journey to marriage.
