“I call it ‘hunting’ – non-natives come here ‘hunting’. They know they can come into our lands and rape us with impunity because they know that we can’t touch them. The US government has created that atmosphere.”— Lisa Brunner, an advocate for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in the Native American community, had this to say about sexual predators at Native American reservations
And this is why your hyper-sexualized, appropriation of our bodies as Native women is a problem white people.
We must live with the knowledge that 1 in 3 Native women will be sexually assaulted/abused/raped or be the victim of domestic violence.

What a total shithead
This lamp absorbs 150 times more CO2 than a tree
It’s still in the “so crazy it just might work” stage, but these microalgae-powered lamps, invented by French biochemist Pierre Calleja, could absorb a ton of carbon from the air every year. That’s as much as 150 to 200 trees. [x]
YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. This is ingenious.
The design is a light bulb surrounded by a glass casing. The glass is filled with (water based) media and microalgae. The top is permeable to gasses so that gas exchange can occur. All of the wiring is linked to the grid underground.
Since the light source is inside, it gets scattered and “dimmed” by the water and algae. This makes it less glaringly bright and scatters the light wider, which is good for a street light. It is not longer white light as well, which helps make it easier on the eyes while still providing light.
At the same time, it provides the light for photosynthesis in the algae, so they are continuously exchanging CO2 for O2, not just in the day. It also provides a source of heat, which helps keep the algae from going dormant during cold weather (as in the snowy picture above).
And notice how I did not specify permeability - that’s because NOx’s (NO and NO2) are also permeable and can be used as nitrogen sources to microalgae. In fact, algae are relatively low maintenance. As autotrophs, they don’t require super complex media, not does it really need to be changed/added to. (I’m actually fairly certain that there would still be algae in these tanks a year later; it may need to be cleaned or something, but there would be some living algae.)

I made these as a way to compile all the geographical vocabulary that I thought was useful and interesting for writers. Some descriptors share categories, and some are simplified, but for the most part everything is in its proper place. Not all the words are as useable as others, and some might take tricky wording to pull off, but I hope these prove useful to all you writers out there!

I’ve recently decided to freeze myself to -273℃. My friends think I’ll die, but I’ll be 0K.

"What and how is Dean supposed to apologize that will make Sam trust him?" The poster then goes on to say that even if Dean did apologize, it wouldn’t come from a place of sincerity anyway, so why bother. And she WAS ON DEAN’S SIDE.
Well, I had to respond to that, and then I…
so basically leopard seals ARE cats??
Haha so on my blog I wrote:
I am a Sam Winchester fan. I love Dean to bits and pieces because howcouldyounot, but I favor Sammy a smidge more. It might have something to do with both fandom and canon shitting on him so undeservedly. Only Dean gets to be harsh with Sam and not get everlasting hate from me.
I realize how outdated this is, because I am at the end of my rope with Dean Winchester. That last sentence is so obsolete. I can’t even with my old self.
Now it’s Sam Winchester or gtfo.
