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?

If media conglomerates as massive as Time Warner and Fox need to get bigger to combat the power of Comcast, what do you suppose that means for the much smaller Web-based services that will be fighting for the necessary bandwidth to survive?
Comcast is going to destroy the Internet.

just felt like posting something great. the guy on the left is a champion. he uses his gifts for nothing but good, and altruistically improves the world around him. the one in the middle has the power, and i wish he’d overcome the people getting in his way so he could do more good. and stop deportation and drone strikes and republicans. and the guy on the right is my hero, i wish he’d be elevated to the compassionate and intelligent leader he deserves and we need. 
what can i do to help make all these things come true

shoegaze, industrial music and pale beautiful women wearing black. tattoos, cosplay and astronomy. soccer, intelligent politics, and in-n-out food porn. these are the things my shy, stupid, hockey-playing ass is about. looking for my ramona flowers.
