A bunch of interesting, beautiful, funny and random stuff. Mostly reblogs, but they're worth it. Feel free to ask me anything!! :)
So the Denisovans (a sub species of Homo Sapiens, whose skull image is shown above), genome was analyzed.
The new Denisovan genome indicates this population interbred with an extinct population that lived in Asia more than 30,000 years ago, which is neither human nor Neanderthal.
They have yet to identify what this unknown species maybe.
This year it’s all coming out.

oh god i’m crying….
As someone who has two combat veteran brothers, this is so important.
No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.
We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.
(Dead Poets Society, 1989)
This always, and will forever be, my favorite Colbert Report segment. And no, I’m not laughing about the names, I’m laughing at Stephen’s reaction. It’s priceless.
Also, NSFW warning, and headphones would be appropriate if you’re around other people/prudes/children.
