PEOPLE GIVE MIKASA SO MUCH SHIT and it’s funny, but seriously, picture that your parents were brutally murdered in front of you - Eren literally saved her LIFE, taught her to defend for herself, provided her with a new home and comfort and love when she was empty and hollow. HE SAVED HER FROM BEING SOLD INTO THE SEX TRADE. SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN RAPED AND GAGGED AND BEATEN FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE IF IT WASNT FOR HIM.

Her attachment to Eren is valid and she doesn’t need to explain why she is so overprotective, thanks.

thANK YOU^

not to mention it was literally Carla Jaeger’s dying wish for Mikasa keep Eren safe like holy shit do the people who give her shit ever think that maybe she isn’t just overprotective but instead she’s trying to fulfill the promise she made to the woman who stepped in as a kind and loving mother, after Mikasa had to watch her own parents get brutally murdered before her eyes?

Teen creates bio-plastic from banana peels

Sixteen-year-old Elif Bilgin of Turkey has developed a way to replace traditional petroleum-based plastic with banana peels.

The Turkish teen took home a US$50,000 prize for her project “Go Bananas!” Thursday after winning the second annual Scientific American Science in Action Award, associated with Google Science Fair.

“My project makes it possible to use banana peels, a waste material which is thrown away almost every day, in the electrical insulation of cables,” Bilgin said in a media statement.

“This is both an extremely nature-friendly and cheap process, which has the potential to decrease the amount of pollution created due to the use of plastics, which contain petroleum derivatives.”

Bilgin spent two years developing the bio-plastic, which does not decay. She said the process is so easy that it is possible to repeat at home, with special care taken for chemicals used in the production process.

In September, the teen will compete at Google’s California headquarters for the overall Google Science Fair prize for 15-to-16 year olds. She will also have access to a one-year mentorship.

Has anyone else noticed how many brilliant breakthroughs in science are coming from the minds of teenage girls the last few years? Between this story, the four girls in Nigeria who invented a generator that runs on urine, the California girl who invented a twenty-second cell phone charger… Who knows where we’d be today without the patriarchal interference of men, stealing or hiding the brilliance of women?

Our future is in the hands of teenage girls, and I for one feel really good about that.

When I was about 7 I wanted to invent a thing that purified water based off of fish gills. I went to the school library to do research like a good little inventor and one of my teachers asked me what I was doing, and then told me that there were some new barbie books in, and that I’d probably be better off with those.

Don’t forget the girl who invented a torch that’d light up just from the heat of your hands

basically everyone should stop s***ting on teenage girls because they do awesome things when you let them

or that one time a girl found the cure for cancer that we could be using in 15 years

Never forget how many women scientists have been covered up time and time again by their male peers.

rdjnews:

Robert Downey Jr. reached 1 million followers less than a day after joining Twitter — 23 hours and 25 minutes to be exact — after sending out his very first tweet and introducing himself to the social media platform.

His first tweet was published on April 11 at 2:30pm PST.  He has made five posts overall, two of which are replies.

This means Robert Downey Jr. technically now holds the fastest time to reach 1M followers, beating out Charlie Sheen (who holds/held the Guinness World Record at 25 hours + 17 minutes).

Robert Downey Jr. joins Twitter, breaks records.

BACKSTORY-I made my two Sims have four children-Hitler, Satan, God, and Jesus. Shortly after, both parents got abducted my aliens. Jesus was being held by his father at the time, so Jesus was abducted as well. The other three babies were taken by the social worker.

Some day, a poor Sim is going to adopt a baby, and the baby will arrive at the house, and the baby’s name will be Hitler.

UPDATE-Five more babies are the result of the alien abduction. There is now Shrek, Billybob, Potato, Shrek Jr, and Spongebob. Jesus is the only human baby, and, guessing from his thoughts, he dislikes his alien siblings.

UPDATE: Because I want these babies to survive into adulthood for mating purposes, I have spawned about twenty generic adult Sims. These Sims have one purpose in life: To help the babies survive into adulthood. I predict that many of the adults shall die, as the house I created is a glorified death trap.

UPDATE: Four adults have already died in a house fire caused by a toaster pastry that was left in the oven. I am starting to loose faith in the children surviving infancy at this rate, but I shall still continue in my goal.

UPDATE: The house has been on fire for about two Sim days now. Instead of putting it out, the adults just keep dancing around it. A few have started crying because they have to urinate. The babies are all laying throughout the house.

UPDATE: The fire is glitching, so it won’t go away now. However, the Sims have started ignoring it. In order to make this more entertaining for me, I have made all of the adults hate each other. There has been nearly constant fighting and crying since then.


In order to try and electrocute a Sim, I have places several broken TVs around the house, and put puddles of water by them. No body has been electrocuted so far.

The babies are doing fine, thanks to cheats.

UPDATE: I am done playing for now. Before I left, the house was on fire again and three Sims were stuck in the pool.

This is the greatest post I have ever seen.
