LOKI IS PERSISTENT IN HIS DRAMATIC LAMENTS ON NEGLECT FROM OUR FATHER BUT THE FACT IS THAT THE ALLFATHER HAS BUT ONE EYE AND MY BROTHER CONSTANTLY STANDS IN HIS BLIND SPOT SO NATURALLY FATHER BEHAVES AS IF HE IS NOT THERE

today I saw a preteen girl pick up Mean Girls at Target and ask her friend what it was. She didn’t even know. She said it sounded dumb. The people are forgetting. The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it.

Well you never know; some people’s entire careers are around the designing, building and maintaining of one entire substation. That’s it, that’s their life. And some people love it *shrug*

I mean, the project is cool, but I wish it was a little more realistic. But, unfortunately, last year’s senior design class did SMRs so oh well.. It’s also hard to feel like I’ve learned absolutely nothing because this is like actual work rather than homework and it’s all so foreign. So much of our curriculum seems dedicated to just learning the language of nuclear engineering (which is absolutely necessary), but it just leaves me wondering how the fuck I’ll manage doing anything without looking like an idiot in the real world.

Also I’m just grouchy because I have a giant senior design report due tomorrow that’s taking an eternity to write and I’m panicking about job stuff (because if I don’t get a job right out of college, I’m a total failure who wasted all that money and will have to move back home and I should’ve never done this in the first place because I’m obviously not smart enough).

Seriously fuck senior design though. I didn’t think I wanted to know this much about a reactor that’s not going to be built for 30 years, much less design a flying propulsion system for one.

Please please please I need approx 70 more entries before tomorrow. I really hate doing personal plugs like this but I’m so close and I need them.

Every single entry counts, so do shares! (Just please don’t enter twice)

Remember that for FR users who put their user ID in the comments box, I will do a headshot doodle (like my current icon) for every 10 people. They will be randomly generated

Last Night in Ferguson (9.28-9.29): Last night’s protest was one of the in Ferguson this month, proving once again that the residents of Ferguson/STL County are some of the most resilient and inspiring in all the land. The police were literally holding peaceful protesters hostage late into the night (folks who were complying with all police requests) so they could negotiate with the remaining folks to leave, but the protesters didn’t back down. Eventually all arrestees were released, and many plan to be back out there tonight.

Injustice in Ferguson continues, but despite it, community now thrives too. This is still happening. Are you still paying attention? #staywoke #farfromover

This week, India became the first Asian nation to reach Mars when its orbiter entered the planet’s orbit on Wednesday — and this is the picture that was seen around the world to mark this historic event. It shows a group of female scientists at the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) congratulating one another on the mission’s success. The picture was widely shared on Twitter where Egyptian journalist and women’s rights activist Mona El-Tahawy tweeted: “Love this pic so much. When was the last time u saw women scientists celebrate space mission?” In most mission room photos of historic space events or in films about space, women are rarely seen, making this photo both compelling and unique. Of course, ISRO, like many technical agencies, has far to go in terms of achieving gender balance in their workforce. As Rhitu Chatterjee of PRI’s The World observed in an op-ed, only 10 percent of ISRO’s engineers are female.This fact, however, Chatterjee writes, is “why this new photograph of ISRO’s women scientists is invaluable. It shatters stereotypes about space research and Indian women. It forces society to acknowledge and appreciate the accomplishments of female scientists. And for little girls and young women seeing the picture, I hope it will broaden their horizons, giving them more options for what they can pursue and achieve.” To read Chatterjee’s op-ed on The World, visit http://bit.ly/1u3fvGZPhoto credit: Manjunath Kiran/AFP/Getty Images

people (and bethesda, jesus christ) tend to forget that according to the lore, there are multiple types of Khajiiti. We only typically see the Suthay-Rhats, but Khajit can be born with multiple levels of feline appearance dependent on the moon cycle they are born under. On one end of the spectrum you have some Khajiit who look practically like Bosmer with cat whiskers, and on the other end you have Khajiit who legit just look like housecats but still have sentience and intelligence. For instance, this would be considered to be a perfectly normal Khajiit family in Elsweyr.
