NASAs plans for 3D printed space pizza.
NASA is funding research into 3D-printed food. Mechanical engineer Anjan Contractor received a $125,000 grant from the agency to build a prototype 3D printer with the aim of automating food creation. It’s hoped the system could provide astronauts food during long-distance space travel, but its creator has the loftier aim of solving the increasing food shortages around the world by cutting down on waste. The software for the printer will be open-source, while the hardware is based on the open-source RepRap Mendel 3D printer.
I feel the need to reblog this because my little cousin just sat down beside me and I had to hurry to a safe spot on my dash cause she’s five and she just says, “Whose cat is that?” “I don’t know it’s just a cat.” “Hey! Cat’s don’t have tongues!” “Uhm.”
“Many of my movies have strong female leads–brave, self-sufficient girls that don’t think twice about fighting for what they believe in with all their heart. They’ll need a friend, or a supporter, but never a saviour”
Ever since Hannah Montana premiered on TV I’ve noticed that nearly every television show aimed at kids has become focussed on either music or just generally being exceptionally gifted. I think that’s damaging to the self-confidence and future aspirations kids will have as they grow up.
Oh my god, you beautiful bastards. Somebody made a lego diorama of the First Defenestration of Prague.

You’re totally not helping your “I’m not a defenestration blog” defence, btw. :D
One of these things is not like the others…
Hey, you know that time Howard Stark got a gang together and robbed a Las Vegas casino?
No, neither did anyone else, until last Wednesday.

You are like the Anti-Jiminy Cricket. A dapper, clever, well spoken fellow in a top hat.
When you wish upon a star,
Makes no difference where you are,
It will still be just a ball
Of superheated gas
If your heart is in your dreams
You should take it to extremes
Go out there with armor on
And kick some ass!
