Felicia kept telling me that I’d be Slytherin, so I went to Pottermore and let the Sorting Hat tell me where I belonged.
This image shows the core region of the Rho Ophiuchi Complex, centered around the prominent blue reflection nebula IC 4603.
This is one of the nearest star forming regions and the intricacies of the dense interstellar dust clouds in the area provides a spectacular display of light and colours.
The bright star is 7.9 magnitude SAO184376 which is the main source of light for the blue reflection nebula. The contrasting red areas towards the top are primarily due to reflected light from the hearby red giant star Antares, which lies outside the field of view. The entire area is also littered with hundreds of dim reddish stars, which are typically very young T Tauri stars.
I didn’t post this, but thanks to OP for crediting me! And wow at all the comments & tags! Most of them had me cracking up but this one was not so good:
"you can really overlook skin color on how f*cking fantastic the cosplay is"
Skin color is not something negative you have to overlook to appreciate the ‘rest of’ the person you are looking at. It is not a flaw that you have to ignore in order to admire someone’s work. The person who said this was not complimenting me but exposing their own racial bias.
My skin color is not something ‘wrong’ with my costumes. Being a black woman enhances my costumes. Black women are the beautiful flowers that white supremacy tried to kill but we kept growing anyway. They try to tell us we’re ugly and dirty and sadly some of us start to believe it. They sell us skin bleach & hair straighteners, and white wash our characters and expect us to be complacent. When we speak out we’re told we’re too loud and angry and unfeminine.
I appreciate all the kind words on this post but I want to say that it’s not a compliment to express approval of someone ‘in spite of’ that person’s race. If you can’t appreciate my work without a negative remark about my skin color, the problem most certainly is not with me but within you.
Reblogged for the killer commentary.
I was star struck by Jay Justice when I saw her at Heroes Con. Or was it NYCC? At a con. I saw her at a con at a Women of Marvel or Carol Corps panel and I was star struck. This commentary proves that she’s a real life super hero!
yuri of the week
What if birds could actually speak English and we were speaking bird the whole time. Like really how weird would that be?
Who else is pissed that the geese are back? God, I hate them so fucking much.
Buried deep at the end of an obscure panel discussion.
I love listening to this man talk. Watch this brief video in which Tyson answers the stupid question, “are there genetic differences between men and women, which leads to more men becoming scientists?” through the lens of his personal experience as a black person who chose to pursue science.
