There were some words here that were relevant at some point but they aren't anymore and I don't care enough to write something new.

frontal-cortex:

Fluorescence image of an anther from an Arabidopsis thaliana transgenic plant producing a mitochondria-targeted GFP specifically in the tapetum. The red fluorescence is the auto-fluorescence of chlorophyll, the green fluorescence corresponds to GFP.

I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone.

Reflections From Above is a complex photo series in which thousands of New York City windows and lights merge together into unique abstract formations. To capture the fascinating and symmetrical perspectives, photographer Donna Dotan focuses her camera down from the tops of large skyscrapers and uses long exposures to capture the action below.

The work of Paris-based artist and E.N.S.A.D. researcher Lia Giraud is further proof that Science + Art = Awesome. These green photos weren’t taken, they were grown. Giraud cultures microscopic algae to form living landscapes and portraits. They aren’t photographs, they’re ‘algaegraphs.’

"The technique is similar to photography, but the photosensitivity of silver grains [in film] is replaced by photosensitive organisms: microalgae," says Giraud, 29.

To create each “algaegraph”, Giraud immerses the algae in a Petri dish filled with a mix of chemical nutrients, and exposes them to an image. “The cells react to the light and form solids of different densities,” she explains.

The outline of the image forms in just a few minutes, but it can take up to four days to achieve the final result. Click here to learn more.

These are the best ones I’ve seen yet, fucking amazing.

This is the realest shit

This actually happened to me. Still had to do homework. Also, emergency rooms are not quiet, and insurance things require a lot of phone calls.
