The oldest living thing in the world: These actinobacteria, recovered from the subterranean brrrrr-osphere that is Siberian permafrost, are estimated to be 500,000 years old. While many ancient microbes have been revived from ancient dormant states, these bacterial cells have been continuously living for half a million years. It’s known that the bacteria aren’t mobile in the frozen Earth, so by radioactively dating the layers of soil around the microbes, scientists were able to estimate their age.
Unable to divide and reproduce, these microbes were shown to be actively repairing their DNA despite the frigid temperatures, their enzymes uniquely adapted to an environment that would mean certain death for perhaps every other creature on Earth. While not growing, moving, or reproducing, this sort of cryostasis counts as living if you ask me (and the scientists who study them).
What do you think this means for the possibility of life on other planets?

11 Ways to Wish Your Shitty Father a Happy Father's Day

Hooray for well-adjusted (or not) adults with shitastic fathers!!

This is offensive to every person who has ever been marginalized and made to feel inferior because of what they stand for. 
The nature of “pride” isn’t to conform to the norms of heterosexual society; it’s an event, festival, mantra, lifestyle, etc. that professes to be true to oneself. To be open about what makes you unique and even really weird. If your thing is to wear boat shoes, with pastel seersucker shorts and a lacrosse polo like everyone else, go for it, it’s adorable. But if you feel trapped and uncomfortable when you present yourself as “normal” then you better throw care and this assholey comic to the wind. If that means wearing a shirt with “FAG” written across it, with lingerie and heels on and penises going in and out of your face, then, bitch, you betta werk.Let people get weird or move out of the way, assholes.

Just once I want my life to be like an 80’s movie, preferably one with a really awesome musical number for no apparent reason. But no, no, John Hughes did not direct my life.

I NEVER CAUGHT THE PARALLEL

Happy Birthday Judy Garland!
(June 10, 1922 - June 22, 1969)

She was the most loyal person and the greatest entertainer in the world. And the first thing you think of is the great warmth of Judy, the great, giving, little person that she was. Her heart was bigger than all of her put together. She was just one big heart.

-June Allyson

Happy birthday, my sweet!!!
