I HAVE SO MANY COMPLICATED FEELINGS ABOUT ZOOS,
Nothing will fuck up your twenties more than thinking you’re supposed to have your shit together.
This is a great example of how universal design can benefit all people with disabilities as well as those without disabilities. I would hope, also, that they include providing gender-neutral facilities as well into their universal design principles.
OH MY GOSH THE DIFFERENT TEXTURED CONCRETE INSTEAD OF THE STUPID YELLOW BUMPY THINGS.
THE STUPID YELLOW BUMPY THINGS ARE FROM HELL AND WHOEVER THOUGHT THEY HELPED PEOPLE IN WHEELCHAIRS WAS WRONG.
Those yellow bumps - tactile paving - are guides for people who are blind and/or have vision impairments. They weren’t intended as aids for wheelchair-users (unless those wheelchair users are also blind). That said, they really suck for wheelchair users, and it’s nice that designers are finding ways to meet both blind people’s and wheelchair users’ (and blind wheelchair users’) needs!
this is the coolest thing I’ve seen all year
I knew “Ed Roberts” sounded familiar and it wasn;t until I started watching that I realized I’ve been by this building dozens of times. Never went inside or knew what it was, but it really is beautiful from the outside and very cool to know that behind the aesthetics/architecture there is a great deal of thought put into accessibility. The Bay Area overall I’ve noticed is very attentive to that- I saw a campus map of sfsu that had paths color-coded by accessibility down to degree of slope and ease of navigation via wheelchair. very cool/ important stuff.
The eastern emerald elysia (Elysia chlorotica) is a sea slug that steals and absorbs chloroplasts from the algae it eats, a behavior called kleptoplasty.

So this group of talented people are making a live action film of the Avatar comic series The Search, but they need your help.
They’re trying to raise money on their indiegogo campaign to make this movie actually happen! Please, check this movie out, it looks really promising.
Even if you don’t donate, please reblog this to spread the word!
Alright guys, prepare for some mental unloading.
Often I get questions about the boys and how they handle things, how they understand things, and how they get along but its not often that people ask ME about how hard it is to balance two completely independent relationships.
I constantly fear…
oh dear. I’m 9 months in with two boyfriends and I’m not sure if it worries or reassures me to know that feeling this way (exhausted/awful/torn/guilty) is normal/happens to other people too. Balance and keeping people happy is hard…I hope not impossible :(
