NASA is planning to grow basil, turnips and Arabidopsis on the Moon. The experiment, which will commence in 2015, will test whether plants can thrive in partial gravity and in a controlled environment. If the experiment succeeds, setting aluminium greenhouses on the Moon could soon be a reality(via Science Alert/fb)

People being angry about ~dem gays~ on Target’s Facebook.
I just want to give my two cents on this and tell you a story.
A couple weeks ago, I was hired at Target. I have a job at Target. Not a big deal right?
It is a big deal because i’m a transman.
It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that it’s hard for me, my brothers, and sisters to get a job. There are legal restraints regarding the job and if you don’t pass, it’s hard to be taken seriously at a job interview.
Right on the application, it asks what your preferred name is. It also asks if there is anything that target should know. I put the fact that I am a transman, expecting not to get a call because usually when you put that down, people will throw out the application. I got TWO interviews.
At the interview, they asked me about it. I told them I am on hormones and they told me that they didn’t care. Not in the sense that they don’t emotionally care, but that it didn’t matter. I was male and that’s all that mattered. They also told me that they give sex same couples benefits in states that do not recognize them as a married couple.
At my job orientation, I was not misgendered once. Even my supervisors who weren’t sure of my gender avoided pronoun use, which I found only happens when you’ve had pronoun training. They gave me a name tag with my preferred name and didn’t ask questions. I felt safe and respected, which is huge for a trans* person.
TLDR: Target is amazing not just for the LGB, but also the T. Shop there for the rest of your life.
Whelp, I’m buying everything from Target.
This makes me happy.
GO SHOP AT TARGET!
What my friends in high school/college thought a game design career was going to be like: You get to play video games all day long and get paid for it!
What I have always known a game design career was going to be like: You get to load this half-finished prototype and play through the first quarter of this one stage sixty bajillion times to gather hundreds of slightly-differently-angled screenshots for marketing reference!
What my day has mostly consisted of: THREE GUESSES.
Art/writing plans and decisions
My coworker brought in a hot pink office tree and started quietly decorating it while we were all setting up this morning.
I look away for a second, and there’s a Nic Cage star with little LEDs on top. I am so inspired.
Guess who just wrote a novel in a month, motherfuckers? 50,000 words, done. It was easy! (Lies.) I planned this thing out way ahead of time and kept a steady wordcount, updating my wordcount every day! (More lies.) I totally didn’t almost have a nervous breakdown over how behind I was on Wednesday and spend today locked in my room catching up on almost 10k words in a fit of pulling it out of my ass at the last minute! (Biggest of all liars it is me yes hello.)
Yes, goodbye. *collapses, curls up into a blanket ball, rolls off stage left. curtain slowly falls*
