While the number of exoplanets discovered by scientists via the Kepler telescope numbers in the thousands, most of the planets found have been gas giants, because gas giants are much easier to spot. But if you’re looking for an Earth 2, the closest thing so far is Kepler 186f, a small rocky planet only slightly larger than Earth that orbits in the comfortable “Goldilocks zone” around its star where it’s not too hot, not too cold. We may never know if there’s life on Kepler 186f, but its discovery is certainly a damn good start in the search for other Earth-like planets out there.

Website of the day: TL;DR Wikipedia
Like Wikipedia, but don’t like all the reading that comes with it? Have I got the perfect tumblog for you…
With X-Men: Days of Future Past hitting theaters in the US at the end of May, the timing couldn’t be worse for Bryan Singer, who is facing very serious accusations that in 1999, he stuck his wang in the b-hole of a 17 year old. Perhaps that then puts Singer in the perfect spot to direct the next Elmo movie.

And it was shortly thereafter that Pooh went to the Dark Side.
Anonymous asked: So I'm about to take shrooms for the first time tomorrow (with friends I trust at their house). I barely smoke weed and when I do, I don't always handle it the best. It doesn't help that I've never been super high either (actually one time I was with weed and hash but I didn't wanna deal with responsibility in that condition. so I just slept it off). Anyways... Should I really be trying shrooms?
If you trust your friends, and you remember it’s just a psychedelic and anything bad will go away eventually, you’ll be fine.
Anonymous asked: SatanHimself here again! I just wanted to thank all of you for your thoughtful support. I have a court date in 3 weeks and I'm confident that I'll get spit out the other side of this very soon and be able to keep my humble home and get my life back to normal. I very highly recommend everybody learn to live with nothing for a month or so. Seriously, it's very liberating to have to deal with potentially losing everything in your life. It helped me prioritize the things in life that really matter.
That’s awesome. Shit is always the worse when you’re right in the middle of it, but as long as you make it out alive on the other side, things usually turn out okay.
