shouldn’t called them the man who is not white and the man who is not white either

So I think what we can take away from the WTNV survey is that the pissants who are actually racist might be in the minority, but bystanders are certainly in the majority.

If you don’t actively stand up for POC and QPOC in this fandom, the only minority you help is the literal fucking white supremacists.

Dinko McNubbycutes:i think there was literally a point in world history after england had colonized everything that all their colonies just went
Dinko McNubbycutes:DUDE
Dinko McNubbycutes:STOP
Dinko McNubbycutes:and england was like

maybe im reading too much into it, but when I was first listening to A Story About Them I thought the implication was that The Man Who is Not Tall and The Man Who is Not Short were supposed to be lovers, or at least liked each other in that way but never got around to admitting it to each other. Doesn’t that just make it all the more upsetting, though?

I’ve started listening to Night Vale. what is life.

not super into it yet. right now is just “this is funny. I think I’ll continue this pleasant form of entertainment.” but it can never stay that way. either I’ll go ballistic or I’ll give it up.

someone make predictions on which way it’ll go.

I will admit it takes a while to get up to speed

it took me a few episodes of “why do people like this, I don’t get it” before I started to like it

First Earth-Size Planet That Could Support Life

For the first time, scientists have discovered an Earth-size alien planet in the habitable zone of its host star, an “Earth cousin” that just might have liquid water and the right conditions for life.

The newfound planet, called Kepler-186f, was first spotted by NASA’s Kepler space telescope and circles a dim red dwarf star about 490 light-years from Earth. While the host star is dimmer than Earth’s sun and the planet is slightly bigger than Earth, the positioning of the alien world coupled with its size suggests that Kepler-186f could have water on its surface, scientists say. You can learn more about the amazing alien planet find in a video produced by Space.com.

"One of the things we’ve been looking for is maybe an Earth twin, which is an Earth-size planet in the habitable zone of a sunlike star," Tom Barclay, Kepler scientist and co-author of the new exoplanet research, told Space.com. "This [Kepler-186f] is an Earth-size planet in the habitable zone of a cooler star. So, while it’s not an Earth twin, it is perhaps an Earth cousin. It has similar characteristics, but a different parent."

Scientists think that Kepler-186f — the outermost of five planets found to be orbiting the star Kepler-186 — orbits at a distance of 32.5 million miles (52.4 million kilometers), theoretically within the habitable zone for a red dwarf.

Earth orbits the sun from an average distance of about 93 million miles (150 million km), but the sun is larger and brighter than the Kepler-186 star, meaning that the sun’s habitable zone begins farther out from the star by comparison to Kepler-186.

"This is the first definitive Earth-sized planet found in the habitable zone around another star," Elisa Quintana, of the SETI Institute and NASA’s Ames Research Center and the lead author of a new study detailing the findings, said in a statement.

Other planets of various sizes have been found in the habitable zones of their stars. However, Kepler-186f is the first alien planet this close to Earth in size found orbiting in that potentially life-supporting area of an extrasolar system, according to exoplanet scientists.

I just made the most incomprehensible happy noises.

  1. Carlos is perfect. I don’t know what he looks or sounds like yet, he just seems perfect.

  2. Everyone in town thinks Carlos is perfect, most importantly The Voice Of Night Vale (or whatever the narrator is called), who loves him and his beautiful hair (which got cut by a barber and The Voice of Night Vale was pissed as hell)

  3. There’s a floating cat in the men’s bathroom at the radio station.

  4. Every quote belongs on a T-Shirt or something.

  5. This is some of the deepest shit I’ve ever heard. Sure, it sounds odd, but it all makes sense in its own way.

  6. The Weather is one of the best parts (it’s not about weather guys…i like it.)

  7. This podcast is on some heavy drugs.

I hope this was helpful
