I can’t accept that. I can’t accept that there was only one black woman in the entire film, who delivered one line and who we never saw again. I can’t accept that the bad guys were Asian and that although in [Taiwan], Lucy’s roommate says, “I mean, who speaks Chinese? I don’t speak Chinese!” I can’t accept that in Hercules, which I also saw this weekend, there were no people of color except for Dwayne Johnson himself and his mixed-race wife, whose skin was almost alabaster. I can’t accept that she got maybe two lines and was then murdered. I can’t accept that the “primitive tribe” in Hercules consisted of dark-haired men painted heavily, blackish green, to give their skin (head-to-toe) a darker appearance, so the audience could easily differentiate between good and bad guys by the white vs. dark skin. I can’t accept that during the previews, Exodus: Gods and Kings, a story about Moses leading the Israelite slaves out of Egypt, where not a single person of color is represented, casts Sigourney Weaver and Joel Edgerton to play Egyptians. I can’t accept that in the preview for Kingsman: The Secret Service, which takes place in London, features a cast of white boys and not a single person of Indian descent, which make up the largest non-white ethnic group in London. I can’t accept that in stories about the end of the world and the apocalypse, that somehow only white people survive. I can’t accept that while my daily life is filled with black and brown women, they are completely absent, erased, when I look at a TV or movie screen.

That’s actually a theory incorporated into M-theory (string theory)
Sorry, I just used the word theory three times. 
Basically, there is a possibility, if string theory is correct and atoms are actually made up of tiny strings vibrating in 10 dimensions, we could have infinite parallel universes inside each and every quark contained in our body. We’re huge to them, and tiny to the universe WE are contained in. 
How bout that? There could be billions upon trillions of creatures, things, worlds, inside each atom inside us. Infinite universes in one quark. 
Mia your geek is showing.
This is why I study physics.

…whoah. brb, contemplating this forever.

So does that mean that when we die all those billions of universes and creatures die within us?


I knew I am a god
I fucking knew it


holy crap that is like world-ception

Dude what if stories and characters are real living in one of the many universes in the mind of the author. The author just happens to be in touch with them in someway.

WHAT

stop mind fucking me thank you

Seoul Metro Cross-stitch (approx 100 hours; Jan 2011-Jan 2012)
I designed this pattern based off of the 2010 Seoul Metro Map. I chose this year for two reasons, that it was the year I arrived in Korea and conveniently was also the year before the map starting having another 5 odd lines added to it
This photo isn’t the best photo for color and quality, unfortunately.
The idea behind this whole project was to give myself a piece of work that I could get framed and put up in my house, and it becomes almost a puzzle and people have to figure out what metro it is. It was inspired by seeing collections of different cities’ subway maps and really liking the simple lines. So I kept this basic, i didn’t want to complicate it with doing the subway station names or line numbers (i don’t think i could’ve fit that in the center section even if i had wanted to).
Currently folded up and sitting in my cupboard waiting for me to fork out the cost for framing
