Science ‘N’ Stuff: 10 Very Important & No Doubt Stupid Questions I Have About Our Mirror Universe

Science 'N' Stuff: 10 Very Important & No Doubt Stupid Questions I Have About Our Mirror Universe

Are you ready for your minds to be BLOWN? Via PBS and Scientific American, a new theory contends that when the Big Bang occurred and the universe expanded, it did so in two directions not just one, creating a mirror universe on the other side of the Big Bang. Except instead of time moving forward as it does in our universe, time in the mirror universe moves backward.

How Much Space Do You Need To Really Be Happy?

How Much Space Do You Really Need?

I’ve had one fork in my apartment since I moved in six months ago. Some may find this sad, but I find it liberating. No longer do I feel like I need to live in this self-imposed multiple fork prison that culture demands from us. Why do I need to spend more money on forks (and the resources to wash and store them), when I can use that same amount of money on the things that I truly find enjoyable, like going to dinner with my friends. Now let’s take this flatware microcosm and expand it. Why do you need two tables? Why do you need two bathrooms? Why do you need a backyard? Why do you need a house? The answer to all of these trick questions is that you don’t need any of those things, you want those things. Read more on Ask Men…

“For me, the issue of feminism is just not an interesting concept … Whenever people bring up feminism, I’m like, god. I’m just not really that interested. … I’m more interested in, you know, SpaceX and Tesla, what’s going to happen with our intergalactic possibilities.”

Of all the dumb reasons various famous women have given for why they don’t identify as feminists or care about feminism, this one from Lana del Rey has got to be my absolute favorite. First of all, I love space — I’m going to see Neil deGrasse Tyson speak tonight, squee! — but I also love feminism and I’m so glad that there’s enough room in my heart for both and I don’t have to choose. Secondly, can we take a breather from asking every female celeb on the planet for their thoughts on feminism and instead ask them for their feelings on Tesla? Just to mix things up. [The Fader]

Sunday nights I have a ritual. I cook a kick ass dinner, I smoke some weed and I watch “Cosmos” high. The show is incredible all on its own, but man, it is mind-blowing when you’re stoned. The visuals are even more wondrous and the expansiveness of the universe is, like, extra, extra expansive and crazy and WHOA. But what if host Neil deGrasse Tyson took a few bong rips before jetting of in his Spaceship of the Imagination” to show us how ”fucking rad space is”? It might look something like this. [TIME]

Did You Glimpse The Blood Moon?

Did you get a chance to step outside last night/early this morning to look at the blood moon? This was the first full lunar eclipse in three years, and the first in a series of four that will conclude in September 2015.  the Earth will begin to position itself between the sun and the moon for the first of a series of four total eclipses to conclude in September 2015. As for the red hue? As CNN explains it, “In a total lunar eclipse, the full moon turns a coppery red as it passes into Earth’s shadow. During the process, the moon’s bright glow dims, taking on a red hue because of shimmers of sunlight and sunsets seeping through the Earth’s atmosphere.” Gorgeous.
