"I’m also a killer. I’ve killed a lot, and if I need to I’ll kill a whole bunch more. If you don’t want to get killed, don’t show up in front of me."
Actual quote from Ferguson “law enforcement” officer and 35-year police veteran, Dan Page. But hey, let’s keep focusing on all those unreasonable “looters and rioters” (via staininyourbrain)

Greasing the Body’s Joints to Ease Pain 
By finding a way to “capture” a slippery molecule naturally found in the fluid surrounding healthy joints, Johns Hopkins University researchers engineered surfaces that have the potential to deliver long-lasting lubrication at specific spots throughout the body. Their finding may eventually help ease the pain of arthritis and keep artificial joints working smoothly.

I looked at this and then thought “Okay, but what’s the formula?”

And then I laughed at myself.

so it’s a fractal formula ?

This is sickening.

I went to a school like this when I was in grade six. My inhalers were locked up in the office, and I was having an attack. My memories are a bit foggy (I couldn’t breathe after all) but I recall my twin sister and somebody else wheeling me all the way to the office in a computer chair. Thankfully I was lucky and got my meds in time; I ended up off school for a week and a half recovering.

This shit is scary. Rescue inhalers should be on the person of the child who NEEDS them, and if they are too young then they should be with the caregiver. There is absolutely no excuse to keep RESCUE MEDICATIONS locked up away from the people who need them FAST.

Another lesson in why the war on drugs is fucked up. Oh kids can get high on this? But it has a practical, real, medical use? Ban it.

Yudy Sauw: Fascinating faces of bugs, bulging eyes to ants’ sensitive antennae

Photo Gallery | 500px| Facebook

Insects may be small, but they have some of the most intricate faces in the animal kingdom.

Now a wildlife photographer has captured extreme close-ups of the creepy crawlies, revealing the complex compound eyes of flies, aggressive stance of ants and even water drops clinging onto one insect’s hairy face.

The striking images were shot by 33-year-old Yudy Sauw at his home studio in Tangerang, Indonesia.

His models included a soldier fly, red ant and a longhorn beetle, which he painstakingly watched to get the best shot.

While the creatures may not sound particularly exotic, they are interesting. Soldier flies mimic organ pipe mud dauber wasps and longhorn beetles make pests of themselves by boring into wood to damage trees and houses. 

To take his photographs, Mr Sauw placed the insects between half an inch (2cm) and four inches (10cm) away from his camera.

He used specialist lighting and a macro lens on his camera to record the creatures’ portraits, before enhancing them on a computer.

Mr Sauw said: ‘I love macrography because I can see clearly what I cannot see with my normal eyes.

‘I can see the small world of insects, what they look like and what they do.’
