7 scientists killed by their own experiments
When we think of scientists and researchers, a passion for discovery, not a penchant for daredevil antics, is usually what comes to mind. Yet many a researcher has faced injury, illness and even death in the name of scientific breakthroughs. After all, when dissecting the mysteries of plague and plutonium, it doesn’t take much for things to go terribly wrong.

Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy has spoken openly about his opposition to gay marriage. He’s even donated a shit-load of money to anti-equality organizations.
Jim Henson Company, who supplied kid’s meal toys to the chain, recently voiced its disagreement with Chick-fil-A, saying they support equal rights for all.
Chick-fil-A outlets all over suddenly put up a sign saying the toys are being recalled over safety concerns, which is utter bullshit.
I made this sign you can download, print and use to replace any toy recall signs you see at any Chick-fil-A.
Reblog the shit out of this, please. (Likes are great, but reblogs get it out there.) Thanks.

DIY Inspiration: Skeletor Belt by Delfina Delettrez. $3,996 and yes it’s sterling silver, but I knew I should have picked up some of those Dollar Store skeleton hands last year (and then spray painted them silver!). Filing under Halloween. From couturelab here.

Watching this Planetary Resources video about their mission to near-Earth asteroids makes me feel like I’m watching a made-up video from a movie set in the future. But once again, the future is now and is being backed by a handfull of multi-millionaires who are using the private sector to find water and platinum, among other valuable resources, in space.

I saw this definition before somewhere, but not as wall art. Maybe on a coffee mug or something. Wait… Is that wall art or just text on a photo? Anyway, still rad.

Perfect!
