The London Underground commemorated its 150th anniversary with a quintet of maps made of Lego. But the creative display was built for more than fun and games. It shows how the network—the world’s first underground passenger railway—has evolved in a century and a half.

TINY TURTLE INVESTIGATORS: THE CASE OF THE LARGE STRAWBERRY
GOOD MORNING EVERYONE
“HAVE YOU TRIED BALANCING ON IT”
“YES OF COURSE I TRIED BALANCING ON IT JENKINS THIS IS NOT MY FIRST DAY AS A TINY TURTLE INVESTIGATOR”
Here is an awesome video that sums up the science behind how our brain processes music and why it can become to addicting!
Thanks to Meganne for submitting this to my personal blog.
Never knew how dangerous scissors could be.
can we focus on the fact that the guy said “paper does not have atoms”
can we all just look at this for a few minutes

Wikipedia just told me it’s partially this guy’s fault that every single clock that I like has IIII instead of IV, which I find annoying and stupid. It makes me angry with him. I JUST WANT A PRETTY, AFFORDABLE WALL CLOCK WITH APPROPRIATE ROMAN NUMERAL MARKINGS, LOUIS!
for those not in the know, night witches were russian lady bombers who bombed the shit out of german lines in WW2. Thing is though, they had the oldest, noisiest, crappest planes in the entire world. The engines used to conk out halfway through their missions, so they had to climb out on the wings mid flight to restart the props. the planes were also so noisy that to stop germans from hearing them combing and starting up their anti aircraft guns, they’d climb up to a certain height, coast down to german positions, drop their bombs, restart their engines in midair, and get the fuck out of dodge.
their leader flew over 200 missions and was never captured.
how the fuck is this not taught in every single history class ever

But, remember, women never did anything in history.
These women are perfect. They aren’t hollywood women oh no. They are Russian bad ass mother fuckers.
On 12 June 1775, the first naval battle of the American Revolution took place, when HMS Margaretta, commanded by Captain James Moore, entered Machias Harbor to commandeer a load of lumber for the British Army at Boston. They were engaged by the American sloop Unity led by Jeremiah O’Brien. After an hour-long bloody struggle, the Americans defeated the British. NHHC image NH NH 56401.
Apollo-Soyuz — An end to the Space Race
During President Ford’s administration, capsules from the world’s two largest competitors in the decades long space race met in what became known as the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project (ASTP). The historic docking of the two spacecraft brought a symbolic end to the 20-year space race.
The Apollo and Soyuz spacecrafts both launched on July 15, 1975. They docked in outer space at 12:10 p.m. EDT on July 17.
Joint scientific and logistics experiments were conducted by the crews, and the docking served a greater symbolic purpose too. The crews of both spacecraft spent much of their time talking to President Ford and Soviet General Secretary Brezhnev. This unique mission, combining both diplomacy and science, demonstrated that U.S./Soviet space cooperation was possible and laid the foundation for the current International Space Station.
