Just out of this world! and it is THIS WORLD!
Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
This is preposterous Tumblr!

I still haven’t figured out how the hell these things are made but I’ve also never seen one in person. Would that ruin the mystery?
It can be anything, I see no gh0stgums, I see cardboard, toothpaste!
Well damn. There’s Photoshop experts and then there’s this guy. Swedish photographer Erik Johansson creates realistic photos of impossible scenes — capturing ideas, not moments.
WOW! just love ‘em all Kudos to Erik Johansson!
This is Martha, the last Passenger Pigeon. She died on September 1, 1914 in the Cincinnati Zoo. Shortly thereafter, her body was packed in ice and sent by railroad to Washington, DC, to become a part of the National Museum of Natural History’s collection as a lasting legacy of the harm that can be done to the natural world by humans. Just decades prior, the Passenger Pigeon was the most abundant bird in North America. The disappearance of the species helped ignite the modern conservation movement.
For the Centennial of her death, Martha was recently brought out for display and is currently on view in the exhibition Once There Were Billions, Vanished Birds of North America. Sponsored by the Smithsonian Libraries in partnership with the National Museum of Natural History and the Biodiversity Heritage Library, the exhibition tells the story of the last Passenger Pigeon, a member of a species that once numbered in the billions, along with the disappearance of the Great Auk, Carolina Parakeet, and Heath Hen. These extinctions reveal the fragile connections between species and their environment.
The Smithsonian Libraries, National Museum of Natural History, and the Biodiversity Heritage Library will be hosting a Twitter Chat on September 2, 2014 from 2-3 pm Eastern Time. This is your chance to ask questions about the Passenger Pigeon, extinction, and biodiversity literature.
Humans, what a shame!
I want this! I love Mercedes-Benz because as a baby jesus when I came out of the Centro Obstétrico Clinic in Caracas, I was driven home to my grandparents’s home in a 1966 Mercedes that my grandfather Jesus owned but he never drove because he had a chauffeur and later, it was my father Jesus who drove him. This is why I have a fascination with this German car and I love to be inside any new Mercedes; and it happens that my father Jesus owns one too. I want this one! it suits me! :)
