"My thighs say thunderous
My thighs say too fat for skinny jeans
Say wide
Say open
My thighs say cellulite
Say bad tattoos
Say stretch marks
Say pockmarks
Say ingrown hair
My thighs feel upset that you only offered one bite of your Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia
My thighs say more, please
More room
More beat drop
My thighs can dance all night
My thighs want your thighs to work a little bit harder
My thighs may or may not want to fuck some of the people in this room right now
My thighs say what the fuck is a thigh gap
My thighs are always the elephant in the dressing room
My thighs hate Urban Outfitters, hate Banana Republic, hate fucking American Apparel
Love the one pair of jeans we wear four times a week because they’re the only ones that fit us right
My thighs hope your thighs have a great day”

Golgi staining in the mouse cerebral cortex and hippocampus
With its grooves and ridges, the cerebral cortex is the “brainy-looking” part of our brain. It’s divided into the left and right hemispheres and plays an important role in memory, attention, thought and language. Nestled underneath the cortex is the hippocampus. As part of the limbic system, the hippocampus controls emotion, behavior, motivation and the establishment of long-term memories.

Traces of One of Universe’s First Stars Detected
An ancient star in the halo surrounding the Milky Way galaxy appears to contain traces of material released by the death of one of the universe’s first stars, a new study reports.
The chemical signature of the ancient star suggests that it incorporated material blasted into space by a supernova explosion that marked the death of a huge star in the early universe — one that may have been 200 times more massive than the sun.
"The impact of very-massive stars and their explosions on subsequent star formation and galaxy formation should be significant," lead author Wako Aoki, of the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, told Space.com by email.

Anonymous asked: I don't know why you allow so many fat people on your blog. It basically says it's ok to be fat. And when I am trying to diet, to get rid of my excess holiday weight, the last thing I want to see is rolls of fat from woman posting their nudes right, left and centre - even if I unfollow you, others reblog. It's not ok to be fat, strive for skinny.

asleepylioness:

Let’s break this down.

1. The selfishness exhibited in your comments is extraordinary. My blog does not exist for you so frankly, i don’t care if you’re trying to exercise  and eat well - that has nothing to do with this blog. If you can’t maintain your will power because of images you see on this blog i’d suggest you get off tumblr. 

2. Nowhere, ever, have  i said that it is ok to be fat. I think it is ok to realize you have one body, and you might as well love it. Loving it should mean keeping it healthy. However, i’m not in the business of telling other people what is healthy for them - i am in the personal business of affirming humans and hopefully giving them a push to fight whatever inner demons they’re facing. 

3. To paraphrase J.K. Rowling, if fat is the worst insult you have to shout (anonymously, mind you), than you ought to redefine what is well and good and of value in your world. 

4. What is pleasing to the intelligent eye goes beyond trivialities like skinny, fat, black, white, blonde and brunette. 

5. Please unfollow me. Clearly all that striving for skinny couldn’t afford you a little class. 

6. Strive for Skinny. Be Healthy.
