Based on the Possible Number of Planets

I’m working on a painting and this thought struck me as I was loosely blocking in the planets for the background of my piece. Something fun to contemplate. »

Twelve Tones and Laser Bats A Video by Vi Hart

We often waltz along the intersection between the arts and the sciences here at Mad Art Lab and if that line of thinking or dancing is your cup of tea, then this video will be your bottle of champagne.

ORIGINALLY POSTED ON SKEPCHICK. Post by Melanie. Contrary to MRA mythology, Skepchicks don’t think there’s anything wrong with owning a penis. In fact, this week, you have a chance to own the penis you’ve always dreamed of, custom made to your specifications in MS Paint by El Mofo herself, Elyse Anders.
