if you’re blue and you don’t know where to go to

why don’t you go where fashion sits

I have been laughing at this for literally the past 5 minutes

YES!

TL;DR Wikipedia cuts out all the unnecessary stuff to tell you what things REALLY are

usvsth3m:

Don’t get us wrong, we think Wikipedia is a wondrous creation. Never before has so much information been so easily accessible, and getting lost in its pages is great way to procrastinate whilst still convincing yourself that you’re doing something worthwhile.

Sometimes, though, it does rather go on a bit.

Luckily, excellent Tumblr TL:DR Wikipedia is here to provide a quick summary of what really need to know about various topics.

Here are 8 examples:

Read them all and you’ll instantly become at least 27% cleverer.

1. Résumé

image

Apart from ours, obviously. All of those awards we won are definitely actually real, and you can’t prove otherwise.

2. Accountant

image

Yup, that pretty much sums it up.

3. Wedding Invitation

image

If any of our married friends are reading this, don’t worry, *your* wedding was lovely.

4. Toilet

image

'In a bathroom' is a state of mind.

5. Latte

image

Ahhhh, so *that’s* what the difference is.

6. Nail Clippers

image

They might joke, but those things are sharp!

7. Che Guevara

image

He was kind of like the Dov Charney of his time. We think.

8. Wikipedia

image

They forgot “pub quiz cheating tool”, but otherwise this is spot on.

Via TL;DR Wikipedia

1) go read this, it’s very funny.

2) I HATE THOSE UGLY GREEN LINK BOXES!! They are the worst design feature ever. I am getting close to burning Tumblr to the ground they are so bad at designing a website.

One of my favorite GIFs of one of my favorite NASA visualizations to preview Monday’s It’s Okay To Be Smart and get you excited and all that jazz. Think you can guess what tomorrow’s vid is about?

Blue = sea saltGreen = organicsRed = dustWhite = sulfates

Check out the full NASA video below, featuring simulated global “stuff in the air” over a two year period on Earth. Ain’t Earth beautiful? (Even if, as in this case, it’s a 3 million processor-hour computer animation)


Wow. We pollute so much more than I’d ever realized.

Urgent security update

staff:

Bad news. A major vulnerability, known as “Heartbleed,” has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr.

We have no evidence of any breach and, like most networks, our team took immediate action to fix the issue.

But this still means that the little lock icon (HTTPS) we all trusted to keep our passwords, personal emails, and credit cards safe, was actually making all that private information accessible to anyone who knew about the exploit.

This might be a good day to call in sick and take some time to change your passwords everywhere—especially your high-security services like email, file storage, and banking, which may have been compromised by this bug.

You’ll be hearing more in the news over the coming days. Take care.

Yippee, we get to change all our passwords! Fun!
