Molecular cell biology, some physics, some chemistry, some politics.

To FCC Chair Tom Wheeler,

   Today, the internet functions as perhaps the broadest medium of expression, news, art, communication, and business in the world.

   I’m writing to let you know why I want to help prevent service provider companies from influencing internet access and speed: the internet is not simply a virtual version of the categories listed above- it has become an essential, and fully integrated part of everyday society that undoubtedly influences not only the individual’s prosperity, but even larger-scale factors such as the national economy in the private sector.

   Less “important” sites on the web could be given less priority than major players, which means we’re locking out start-up businesses and projects, the individual contributions that made the internet the great medium of thought it is now.

   In summary, I want you to know that I think the internet is no longer a commodity to be messed with, divided, and tiered. It is far too expansive both in content and capabilities, and this must be respected on behalf of all who use it.

Thank you for your time.

If I was a protein I’d like to be non-homologous end-joining protein (NHEJ) so that I could have a pretty easy job and watch everyone else suffer through the chaos of my effects.

200X total magnification of Elodea in isotonic solution.
The dots are chloroplasts, the plant cell organelle devoted to the production of GTP and other forms of energy used by the cell.
Isotonicity refers to the relative concentration of solutes inside and outside the cell. Here, the solution is a low concentration of sucrose in ethanol. The concentration gradient (the amount of solutes distributed between the inside and outside of the cell) is at equilibrium in an isotonic environment.

Going to put this out there…

For those of you believing in the “fractal nature of the universe”…

Just because clusters of neurons slightly resemble certain galaxies,

or because microscopic images of the human iris look a little like spider webs,

or because we look at things with similar patterns and call them “fractals,”

doesn’t actually make them fractals,

or evidence of any kind of spiritual “connection with the Earth,”

or anything beyond coincidences.

I’m serious.

Take a real evolutionary science course and

STOP WITH YOUR HIPPIE BULLSHIT.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Science

I was looking up the alkene formation of hexene from cyclohexanol and found this mechanism.

FUCK THE CHLORINE LET’S GO GUYS.

i love how tumblr likes to act like it is a bunch of really intellectual activists who understand politics, religion, sexuality, and literature better than most of the human population

when it is mostly hormonal teenagers and incredibly pretentious uninformed college students
