Person: I’m a woman and I don’t need feminism
What she’s actually saying:
My life is perfectly okay and I don’t really care what other women go through
I think feminists are just whiny and can’t take jokes that perpetuate harmful stereotypes
I believe that people are just obsessed with political correctness
I am blind to the fact that there are still problems faced by women
I have forgotten that feminism gave women rights such as the right to vote
I have no idea that feminism is an egalitarian movement that fights for everyone’s rights regardless of sex, gender, sexuality, race, religion, nationality, and ethnicity but mostly focuses on women’s rights.
I am more concerned about semantics rather than human rights
I can’t distinguish between real feminists and shitty people who call themselves feminists
I still believe in the false notion that feminism is about hating men
I actually don’t understand what feminism is

'Invisibility cloak' uses lenses to bend light
A device called the Rochester Cloak uses an array of lenses to bend light, effectively rendering what is on the other side invisible to the eye. One of the problems with the cloaking devices developed to date — and it’s a big one — is that they really only work if both the viewer and whatever is being cloaked remain still. This, of course, is not entirely practical, but a difficult problem to solve. For the first time, researchers have made a cloaking device that works multidirectionally in three dimensions — using no specialised equipment, but four standard lenses.

Anonymous asked:

so, what's your story?

parkingstrange answered:

Okay, so I normally answer this question with like a 2 minute sentence, but I feel you guys deserve a definitive answer so here we go.

Nicole and I met in 2011, how you may ask, where we met right here. Yup, right here on the same blue dashboard you’re likely reading this post on. We started talking and getting to know each other pretty well, so we moved over to facebook were our friendship escalated into something more.

Soon enough into our long distance relationship we started video chatting:

This went on for about 11 months until we would finally be able to be together.

This is me in an airport on my way to her for the first time:
image

It was probably the most terrifying moment of my life, personally, and I was incredibly nervous. 

This is us on the car ride back to her house:
image


She was really shy about being in pictures, so naturally I tried to take 300. 
image

Eventually she started giving in and took more pictures.
image

It was only a week, but it was the best week of my life.
image

Eventually we decided to start living together, I lived with her and her mom while I found a job in Michigan and made enough to get our own place.

Job hunting was fun
image

Not everything works out as planned though, and we ended up on the streets for 2 months trying to figure out what to do with our lives.

Looking pretty good for a homeless couple right?image

When we realized things weren’t gonna work out in Michigan we decided to move to Florida with my family where things would be easier for us. 

I found a job right away.image

And eventually Nicole even joined the crew.
image


Things were going really well for us, so we decided to save every penny we had and give it a go in Michigan again. We found a place that we liked and we were happily awaiting to move in in 2 months.

image

Things took somewhat of a dramatic turn when Nicoles depression (which she had been battling for a major part of her life) kicked in and she made an attempt at taking her own life.image

Unfortunately her family thought I was to blame for it, and since we were still living under their house while the place we wanted was available  I had to go back to Florida to live with my family. We were separated for the first time in over a year.

BUT EVERYTHING CHANGED WHEN WE FOUND OUT NICOLE WAS PREGNANT

She dropped her life in Michigan and flew back to me ASAP
image

Our youtube channel and our blog had started to pick up a decent amount of followers, so when we asked for your help and put up a wishlist for Charlie things you guys did not disappoint.
image

Soon enough Nicoles belly started growingimage

Things had finally settled down, and we were able to enjoy ourselves for the first time, here’s the last Christmas we spent as a party of 2
image

Before we knew it February had rolled by and it was time for the baby.
image

And just like that we had conceived and brought a new life into this world.image

As of May 2nd 2014 it’s been 3 months since Charlie was born.image

She’s absolutely beautiful, and she’s become the center of our world. It’s been a long, hard, and sometimes stressful journey. It isn’t the most polished, or magical, or glamorous love story you will ever hear. But it is our love story, it is our journey, and we are grateful for every step of it we’ve been able to take side by side.

If you’re still following our blog after this huge post with our faces on it thank you so much, you’re awesome! <3
