I don’t browse Tumblr as much since they decided to pollute my TL with blogs I’m not following nor do I care to follow.


When people compare the greatness that is The Simpsons to other animated shows like Family Guy it makes me want to set myself on fire

This is a song titled “Ode to the Sun.”

I first heard it live at a concert in 2006. I forgot about it until I played Dark Souls in 2013, a game in which the sun and light are an important part of the lore (and of one character’s story arc in particular). Now it’s one of my favorite songs, so I’m sure to listen to it sparingly as I’m fearful of playing it out.

I remember middle school and all the kids going “Harry Pothead and the Sorcerer Who Got Stoned.”

I’ve been running this Tumblr since June, so maybe follow it. We’re only about 409 followers from a big milestone. Posting as Salon made me appreciate Tumblr a lot more in some ways. Though I wish I was able to post more things per day. Alas, the Tumblr is the lowest priority thing I do at Salon, though I wish it wasn’t. C’est la vie hah hah hah.


NASA | The Mysterious Holes in the Atmosphere on Venus

Venus has no magnetic field. WHICH IS CRAZY.

If the Earth lacked a magnetic field we wouldn’t be here to take selfies. (“Earth’s magnetic field serves to deflect most of the solar wind, whose charged particles would otherwise strip away the ozone layer that protects the Earth from harmful ultraviolet radiation” Wiki).

"It appeared that there were holes on the nightside of Venus’ ionosphere. Researchers at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center investigated these mysterious holes, and found evidence that the sun’s magnetic field lines may be penetrating through the planet."

”..the sun’s magnetic field lines may be penetrating through the planet.”

That’s awesome.

Goodnight, Tumblr. Please don’t succumb to the ways of the wicked.


Today my niece told me she knew all the planets and she didn’t name Pluto and that made me sad.
