but actually fuck the avenger’s tower

how about the captain america tower? or the captain america reasonably-priced penthouse??

it starts at sam’s house, when they’ve finally managed to corral bucky into coming back. nat is already waiting for them, a peaceful smile on her face like she’s found the secrets of the universe and wouldn’t be sharing with anyone anytime soon.

then puppy pile, for minimum 48 hours

"we really need a bigger place," bucky says, and everyone’s so surprised that it was him who suggested it that there’s no thought of protest

they get an unobtrusive little brownstone in an easily-defensible location. and they get a great price on it bc nat and steve pose as the straight white couple of any landlord’s dream, but SURPRISE MOTHERFUCKERS POLYGAMOUS BISEXUAL INTERRACIAL COMMUNE MOVING IN

there’s a chore wheel and mandatory therapy for bucky and some actual happiness k

and they fight crime or whatever

About three weeks ago I was visiting my parents and my dad told my about this large spider by the trash bins. He thought of squashing her, but then thought better of it since she’s killing mosquitoes. Seeing as I’d painting spiders for my senior watercolors portfolio I raced down to take some pics of her with my phone for painting inspiration. I just visited again today and am pleased to say she is doing well. I named her Stella since I figure my dad’s going to be making sure nobody messes with her web. I thought I’d share since I thought she was beautiful. :) Also, I very much enjoy your blog. Keep posting all the spiders!

AS: i’m glad she’s safe! thats an Argiope by the way, great spiders to have around!

Mine Kafon by Massoud Hassani

Hassani, a product designer from Afganistan, build (by hand) a wind-powered device that trips land mines as it rolls across the ground. It is made using bamboo and biodegradable products.

Many of these mines are active and near populated areas in countries like Afganistan and are hard to remove. The UN says that one mine clearance specialist is killed, and two injured, for every 5,000 mines cleared.

Hassani’s cheap and easy to make method has been achieving great results.

In a world of overcomplicated solutions, we need more people who think “Wait, why don’t we just roll a giant freaking ball over it?”

this guy made a katamari for landmines

Plankton Found on the Exterior of the International Space Station!

While examining samples taken from the exterior surface of the ISS, scientists discovered something completely unexpected - Marine Plankton living on the surface, despite the harsh condition (Vacuum, temperature, and radiation.)

There was evidence that the plankton had been living there for years, and possibly even developing, too.

This gives more plausibility to the panspermia theory - that life all over the solar system/galaxy/universe is all related thanks to bacteria catching rides on asteroids and comets. We already know it is possible for rocks to be thrown away from a planet by something like an asteroid impact or large volcanic eruption - some meteorites have had their lineage traced back to mars.

So do you believe the panspermia theory to be plausible? what about alien life in general?

Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”
