Actors revisit their famous movie roles
THIS MADE ME VERY EMOTIONAL.
VIGGO YOU WERE NEVER SUPPOSED TO BE ALLOWED TOUCH A REAL SWORD EVER AGAIN!

One would assume that scientists, who are trained to think objectively, are completely immune to gender discrimination. However, a recent Yale study by Corinne Moss-Racusin and colleagues suggests otherwise.
The researchers created a fictional student and sent out the student’s application to science professors at top, research-intensive universities in the United States. The professors were asked to evaluate how competent this student was, how likely they would be to hire the student, how much they would pay this student, and how willing they would be to mentor the student. All of the applications sent out were identical, except for the fact that half were for a male applicant, John, and half were for a female applicant, Jennifer. Results showed that, with statistical significance, both male and female faculty at these institutions were biased towards male students over female students.
Data from the study shows that on average, science faculty was willing to pay the male applicant about $4,000 more per year.

I had to read this study for class. It is thorough as fuck.
This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy.
I watched that episode with my family and I could just feel how uncomfortable everyone was. Honestly, it was a really jarring, unpleasant episode.
Homer is a terrible dad. So is Peter. But Homer’s saving grace has always been that he tries—he’s bad at it and he fucks it up a lot, but he loves his family and he wants to be better than he is.
One of my favorite Homer moments is in “Diatribe of a Mad Housewife.” Tl;dr Marge writes a steamy romance novel starring herself and Ned, and when Homer finds out, he chases down Ned and, rather than attack him, asks him to teach him how to be a better husband.
There’s some part of his stupid self that wants to do better.
I never got that impression with Peter. Instead, the family has gotten more and more abusive towards Meg. It’s really unsettling for me when I started realizing that’s what happens sometimes in abusive families. Abusers sometimes single out one child to abuse, and quite often the other family members take the abuser’s side. After all, it’s easier to side with an abuser than to run the risk of becoming the target yourself.
There’s never really a point where it seems like Peter cares at all that his shitty behavior impacts his family. It actually seems to have gotten worse over the years. He expects everyone to clean up his messes because that’s always what happens; there’s really no reason for him not to be shitty.
And it’s easy to see how Meg is affected. She doesn’t have much of a character, really, because so much her screen time is devoted to being abused. The bits of character development all seem to hinge on her being this sad, neglected person who’s trying her best but never really gets any help from anyone. Quite the opposite; there have been a lot of episodes where her family sabotages any attempts to be herself.
It can be easy to forget how awful this behavior is when the only context is the show itself (frankly, everyone on Family Guy is kind of terrible). Seeing it played against the Simpsons, who are a flawed and dysfunctional but ultimately loving family, was painful to watch.
on the positive side of me having to stay up for the printer, I discovered that the mobil near the dorm has dip. I have had this bag of tortilla chips for the longest time and nothing to eat it with. plain tortilla chips are okay, but with queso blanco they’re a most excellent snack.
printer, you lie to me.
I started this print for MRDT at like 1, a gear for the elbow joint, and repetierhost said it would take 8 1/2 hours. okay, done by like 10 or so. by 5, it was 30 minutes off, saying it would be done by about 11. by 7, done about It’s now 10, and it looks like it won’t be done until 2AM. fuck my life. I guess I’m not going to bed early like i would like. not too bad, I don’t have class tomorrow until 10. i seriously cannot sleep with the printer running, it’s not loud, but it is insistent and inconsistent so you can’t tune it out. at least my roommate is out so I don’t feel bad about making the room smell like molten plastic.
also, this part kind looks like ass, because ABS plastic likes to curl and warp. the outside surface looks ~ok but the inside is fuckin hideous. I’m not going to cancel it though, because not only do I need to have something to show by tomorrow’s meeting, I don’t want to waste the time and plastic I’ve put into this attempt.
i thought of before i went to bed last night….
123D Catch is an I-Phone and Android App that allows you to create 3D models by taking a bunch of pictures from various directions. These models can later be 3D printed. (Website)
Pardon me while I SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
"This weekend, Arduino founder Massimo Banzi announced on an Italian television show called ‘Che tempo che fa’, that his company would be entering the 3D printing space via a collaborative effort with Italian 3D printer manufacturer Sharebot. For those who are unaware, Arduino is the most commonly used open source hardware platform. It is used by both amateurs and professionals to create interactive electronic projects. Along with the various electronic boards offered by the platform, there is also a free Arduino software which can be used to program those boards, as well as a thriving and helpful community.
The electronics board will be compatible with Arduino Mega 2560 with open source firmware. The entire printer is open source and is targeted towards collective use, such as in classrooms, maker spaces, and cooperative work environments.
