I was just thinking how cool it would be to turn my two couches into some kind of mega comfy living room nest and then I remembered I live alone and there is literally nothing that can stop me from doing this.
you are the future
I used to do this when I was a kid for sleepovers! It’s awesome.
The revolution itself may not be televised, but on last night’s edition of the BBC’s Newsnight, viewers may have witnessed the start of one.
Actor-slash-comedian-slash-Messiah Russell Brand, in his capacity as guest editor of the New Statesman’s just-published revolution-themed issue, was invited to explain to Jeremy Paxman why anyone should listen to a man who has never voted in his life.
"I don’t get my authority from this preexisting paradigm which is quite narrow and only serves a few people," Russell responded. "I look elsewhere for alternatives that might be of service to humanity."
And with that, the first shots of Russell’s revolutionary interview were fired.
Over the course of the following ten-or-so minutes, Brand and Paxo volleyed back and forth over subjects ranging from political apathy, to corporate greed, to gorgeous beards.
Throughout the interview, Brand repeatedly dodged Paxman’s efforts to trivialize his message — at one point Paxman literally called Brand a “very trivial man” — until finally, even the entrenched newsman appeared to relent against the rushing tide of Brand’s valid arguments.
After Brand reminded Paxman that he cried after learning that his grandma too had been “fucked over” by aristocrats, the Newsnight host was stunned into silence.
"If we can engage that feeling and change things, why wouldn’t we?" Brand crescendoed. "Why is that naive? Why is that not my right because I’m an ‘actor’? I’ve taken the right. I don’t need the right from you. I don’t need the right from anybody. I’m taking it."
It was a conscious effort to have a diverse cast just to represent our world. I don’t think it’s realistic for the whole cast to be white. I also think when you are developing a show and casting it mostly Caucasian and you get down to the bad guy and the network is like, “You have to have some diversity,” then all of the sudden…that’s why the person of color is always killed. And because we have so much diversity in our cast and we’ve had the freedom to cast our villains and victims however we want, so we can kill as many white people as we want.

Dad made his son a hand with a 3D printer for $10 instead of paying tens of thousands for a prosthetic.
The way the boy smiles when he says “I’m like a cyborg.” just melted my heart. People are printing robotic hands. It’s the future. We live in sci-fi.
is it durable, tho?
Some 3D printed plastics are highly durable and can withstand massive impact and shock, so this is incredible.
We better reblog this as much as we can 2013 is almost over
