This is not to say that space travel has made me feel irrelevant. In fact, it’s made me feel that I have a personal obligation to be a good steward of our planet and to educate others about what’s happening to it. From space, you can see the deforestation of Madagascar, how all that red soil that was once held in place by natural vegetation is now just pouring into the ocean; you can see how the shoreline of the Aral Sea has moved dozens of miles as water has been diverted for agriculture, sot hat what used to be a lake bottom is now bleak desert. You can also see that Earth is a durable, absorbent, self-correcting, life-supporting place that has its own problems - natural ones, like ash-spewing volcanoes. But we make matters infinitely worse through poor stewardship. We need to take a longer-term view of the environment and try to make things better wherever we can.

Microgrowing Kit - InFarm

Another brilliant solution for urban farming, the Microgrowing Kit from InFarm is an origami-inspired form made from a transparent waterproof material and helps grow microgreens in any environment. Ten to fourteen days after planting the seeds within the kit, the greens are ready to eat without the need to water even once… and you can watch the growing process from start to finish. The best part? You can use the kit again and again as often as you like.

The Rose of Jericho [VIDEO] is a species of desert moss that has the amazing ability to ‘resurrect’ itself after bouts of extreme dehydration lasting months or even years. After just a few hours of exposure to moisture the plants burst to life, uncurling from a tight ball of dry leaves to a green flower-like shape. Videographer Sean Steininger shot this timelapse of several plants as he exposed them to water.

Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.

The best deodorant you will ever use Seriously. 1/4 teaspoon in each pit and you can sweat your ass off, totally stink-free for like 2 full days. It’s a natural anti-bacterial so those little fuckers won’t multiply and make you smell. Plus it’s cheaper and healthier than any deod you can buy anywhere.
Use equal parts of the following:
-corn starch-baking soda-coconut oil-cocoa butter
With a few drops of whatever essential oil you want, for fragrance. Otherwise it basically just smells like nothing. I use tea tree oil & pine needle oil. Cuz they’re MANLY.
Note - It pretty much turns to liquid if it’s warmer than about 75 degrees. If you want to keep it solid, you can refrigerate it or add a little more corn starch.

Reblogging myself again, cuz I still use this and it’s still awesome

This is what I’ve been using for about a year now and it works wonders. Not convinced it works? My fiance is literally the smelliest human being I’ve ever met when he’s been sweating all day. I made him some with tea tree oil and he now smells nice and mint-ish as the end of the day, even if he’s been outside working. Not to mention it’s cheaper, smells better, better for you AND better for the environment to make your own :D

Mad props to Weird Al for taking a disgusting rape anthem and turning into a catchy, Schoolhouse Rock-esque anthem about grammar

Also the video itself is great, too
