what even IS american culture
it’s just a big ball of different cultures with no set value

"The fact that I’m silent doesn’t mean I have nothing to say."
Jonathan Carroll (via veg-pits)
John Strickland, National Space Society board member, will present a plan for the “biggest construction system in history,” capable of building space colonies with as much as 500 square miles of ‘land,’ with forests, farms, and whole towns.
It’s a “jig-construction” device — a free-floating factory in space that holds on to the structure that it is making and anchors it, keeping the structure motionless while it is being assembled. At intervals, it extrudes the finished structure at one end.
It also has docks for space tugs, to receive shipments of fresh materials, like metal components created from asteroids and moon dust. The construction system would be automated and heavily roboticized — 3D printing in space with a vengeance.

Government, Monty Python Style
Still brilliantly funny all these years later.
whenever i find monty python casually just on my dashboard i just blinka few times and then get super fucking excited because i don’t see them as much as i’d like to on tumblr
A wild day in pictures…
Pictured above: me, mid-change, in the woods.
Afterwards: two bookstores, two cafes, poutines, hats, flashbacks, and babies.
Niagara isn’t so bad after all :)
Red birds escape from my wounds,
And return as falling snow,
To sweep the landscape a wind haunted
Wings without bodies.
The snow, the bitter snowfall.
You long to die in her pale arms, crystalline
To become an ode to silence
In the soul of a mountain of birds, fallen.
Falling Snow, Agalloch
