As good as cats think they are at hiding from us, we know better.

Countries of Latin America

See at first I thought this was going to be the Countries of the World song from Anamaniacs.

Words cannot express my disappointment.

A pro-life group in Lansing, Michigan says fetal models have helped save a baby from a late-term abortion. Officials with 40 Days for Life in Lansing posted a picture of a set of fetal models that it says helped changed a woman’s mind about having an abortion.“ I showed the 30-week model to a late-term mom who left the clinic and DID NOT have an abortion. Praise God!” the group wrote.

Literally none of these except the final one is anatomically correct. You literally have a minuturized born infant model as your 12 weeks ant 8 weeks fetus, this is BLATANT misinformation and lies.
Additionally abortions at 30 weeks? Aren’t legal ANYWHERE in the world unless the fetus is already fucking dead or cannot survive outside the uterus on it’s own. You didn’t save ANYTHING, or else you are lying about gestational age OR they weren’t actually going for an abortion or you made the whole story up.
This is propaganda, misinformation and lies, it’s disgusting and it doesn’t actually help your movement. This is (among the reasons) why pro choicers think pro liars are full of shit, and refuse to respect you or your movement.

This is what happens when a smoker quits. Pass it on.

This is so important

How does this not have more notes?! Seriously, take the time to read this because it could save a life. Or SEVERAL.

types of matter

So I hope we all now are aware of the four not three fundimental states of matter (I know even in the past twenty years, which would be my early science education, we were only taught three) (yes I am old).

But did you know there are a fuckton more states of matter?

Okay, so a lot of them don’t appear on earth (okay, so most of them don’t really “appear” anywhere outside of math) (but lots do! Like glass! Which is now sometimes recognized as its own state! And liquid crystal! Which is how your screens work!), but let’s just talk about a couple real quick here:

SuperfluidClose to absolute zero, some liquids form a second liquid state described as superfluid because it has zero viscosity (or infinite fluidity; i.e., flowing without friction).

Bose-Einstein condensate: (This is my favorite one, you guys)  In a BEC, matter stops behaving as independent particles, and collapses into a single quantum state that can be described with a single, uniform wavefunction.

DropletonA “quantum fog” of electrons and holes that flow around each other and even ripple like a liquid.

Degenerate matterElectron-degenerate matter is found inside white dwarf stars. Electrons remain bound to atoms but are able to transfer to adjacent atoms. Neutron-degenerate matter is found in neutron stars. Vast gravitational pressure compresses atoms so strongly that the electrons are forced to combine with protons via inverse beta-decay, resulting in a superdense conglomeration of neutrons.

Quark-gluon plasma:Quark–gluon plasma is a phase in which quarks become free and able to move independently. (This one can exist inside particle accelerators.

Color-glass condensateColor-glass condensate is a type of matter theorized to exist in atomic nuclei traveling near the speed of light. According to Einstein’s theory of relativity, a high-energy nucleus appears length contracted, or compressed, along its direction of motion. As a result, the gluons inside the nucleus appear to a stationary observer as a “gluonic wall” traveling near the speed of light.

SupersolidA supersolid is a spatially ordered material (that is, a solid or crystal) with superfluid properties. Similar to a superfluid, a supersolid is able to move without friction but retains a rigid shape. Although a supersolid is a solid, it exhibits so many characteristic properties different from other solids that many argue it is another state of matter.

And there are so many more! Like dark matter and superglass and equilibrium gel

Now, please do realize that these are not fundamental states of matter like the four in the gif above are. But they are so awesome.

PS I sauced most of this from Wikipedia but there is so much fascinating stuff out there about non-classical states of matter, and some great books as well, if this stuff fascinates you as much as it does me. Matter states are one of my physics fetishes, you guys, so I hope I could at least enlighten you a little bit.
