Happy new year everyone! I'd go to sleep, but the neighbors are making a lot of noise for some reason
- 🔁 Repost from cosmo-nautic:
Many adults are put off when youngsters pose scientific questions. Children ask why the sun is yellow, or what a dream is, or how deep you can dig a hole, or when is the world’s birthday, or why we have toes.
Too many teachers and parents answer with irritation or ridicule, or quickly move on to something else. Why adults should pretend to omniscience before a five-year-old, I can’t for the life of me understand. What’s wrong with admitting that you don’t know? Children soon recognize that somehow this kind of question annoys many adults. A few more experiences like this, and another child has been lost to science.
There are many better responses. If we have an idea of the answer, we could try to explain. If we don’t, we could go to the encyclopedia or the library. Or we might say to the child: “I don’t know the answer. Maybe no one knows. Maybe when you grow up, you’ll be the first to find out.
--Carl Sagan (via perfect)
Why do we have that thing where they tape over the firearms of cops/soldiers/security guards? Those are registered weapons, don't we have something like ballistic matching to trace if the bullet that hit a victim of indiscriminate firing was a registered weapon?

If you must use fireworks of any kind tonight, at least try to limit your injuries to the left leg only. That way you can start the new year on the right foot.

Homeland S3 wasn't the best, but it was the ending Brody deserved. Not sure about Carrie.

How are you pronouncing it?
Try saying something like "hanging". Now remove the "ha". Then replace the "ing" with" "ayon"

I believe in the past few months, Vita has gotten Soul Sacrifice, Rayman Origins and Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed, these are pretty good. I'm not sure what you want, it's not like we can get Tearaway, that just came out
