These distinctive nebular formations are characterised by their axially symmetric, bi-lobed appearance. Many planetary nebulae exhibit this feature, and it is possible that there is a relationship between the two types of nebula, with one preceding the other in their evolution. The exact cause of the bipolar structure is unknown, however it could be linked to bipolar outflow (a process in which a star ejects highly energetic streams of outflow along both poles).

Dune is off the damn charts!

There are two things in life that I am truly passionate about: Comics, and honey.
I forgot about how good raw honey was until this moment
if you eat local honey it can help with pollen allergies since the bees are using plants from your area to make the honey!
eating local honey regularly works better than allergy medicine bc it doesnt just hide the symptoms, it helps you to get over it!!!
Honey is the fucking tastiest natural sweetener around, bitches. and it tastes different depending on what the bees used. Like, we got blackberry honey around here, right? That shit tastes like black berries. It’s the bomb. //needs to stop by health food store and buy more because we’re running out
Honey does a lot of things. It’s tasty, you can use it as a substitute for corn syrup when making things like delicious caramel, it’s antibacterial so you can put it on a small cut if you run out of Neosporin, and it soothes burns better than aloe.
What honey won’t do is help your seasonal allergies. The pollen that plants release into the air and cause allergies (anemophilous) are different from the pollens that stay in the plant and attract insect pollinators (entomophilous).
I had always heard that honey is loaded with vitamines and was a little disappointed when I found that an average tbsp of honey contains only the following:
But it’s still good stuff. :)
Rape, By The Numbers.
everyone needs to see this graphic
Remember the Stuebnville Rape Case? Well, we certainly do as we have been following it from day one. The Anonymous member who gathered and released the social media evidence against the rapists could face up to 10 years in prison for doing so. The 2 rapists that were convicted only got 2 years each. That is bullshit.
Read up on this and if you find it as appalling as we do, please see what you can do to help KYAnonymous.

Most Importantly, do whatever you can, whenever you can to put an end to Rape, to fight against Rape Culture, stand up for the rights of Rape Victims and put an end to Victim Shaming.
According to the BBC, the Greek government has announced that it will shut down the radio and TV services of the state broadcaster ERT. A government spokesman said transmissions would cease early on Wednesday. All employees, numbering at least 2,500, will be suspended until the company reopens “as soon as possible.” Unions voiced strong opposition to the move. An engineer at the broadcaster’s multimedia department who gave his name as Yannis said: “The government announced that channels will shut down at midnight - after that the screens will go black. “According to the government, from tonight I will be unemployed. It is a complete shock. In four hours’ time I will not have a job.”Let us help Greek journalists inform Greek people all over the world!Let us help Greek people remain properly informed!
Addendum: Pulling the plug on state broadcaster ERT signal has also pulled plug on BBC, Deutsche Welle and RIK channels in Greece.
