Waiting hours for a cellphone to charge may become a thing of the past, thanks to an 18-year-old high-school student’s invention. She won a $50,000 prize Friday at an international science fair for creating an energy storage device that can be fully juiced in 20 to 30 seconds.
Everybody, remember this face.
Remember this name.
If this becomes a commonly used & highly lauded discovery, at some point a White guy is going to take credit, even if he has to word it like “Improved upon a previous…”
No no no
Fuck that guy.
Remember this brown girl.
This is my doggie, Cinci,
She is a 9 year old basset hound. Very stubborn, very smart, very cute. And even though she smells like a landfill, I love her.
She is in good general health, except for one thing.

” you don’t belong here if you don’t reblog this”
I have updated the image to reflect the amazing truth about this amazing man.
He barbecued it for two hours, Neil. Get your facts right.
Show Yahoo that we are OKAY with them buying Tumblr as long as they leave the current terms and conditions intact and the enforcement policy.
Aka, the site remains the EXACT same as it was before. Keep Tumblr the same Yahoo and we will stay.
i tried to scroll past this but that one reblog just might save somebodies life
have you ever just cried because you’re you
Number one rule of Tumblr:
ALWAYS REBLOG THE DARN CREATOR IF HE IS ON YOUR DASHBOARD.
If you don’t, get off Tumblr. Now.
woop woop party time up in here yo.
He looks like that guy off of glee in the wheel chair.

My Inspirational Female Archaeologist
Gertrude Caton-Thomson (1889 - 1985) was an early female archaeologist who conducted work in Egypt and Zimbabwe, the latter of which is what she is probably most famous for. After conducting her own fieldwork at the Great Zimbabwe ruins, she denounced the popular “Foreign origins” theories that they were built by a mysterious white race, or early Phoenicians, instead stating that they were of indigenous origin. After presenting her findings in 1929 to the British Association for the Advancement of Science in Johannesburg, South Africa, she was shunned by a large majority of pro-Foreign-origins supporters. Nevertheless, she stuck to her guns, and had the support of many other eminent archaeologists, including Sir Mortimer Wheeler and Louis Leakey. She was taught under Flinders Petrie, and was herself a mentor and friend to another famous female archaeologist, Mary Leakey.
Her knowledge and courage in what was then a male-dominated, and often sexist discipline, are really inspiring to me. Getrude, you rocked!
