I need a makeup line designed for scientists

thejunglenook:

I can see it now…

  • No more unsightly facemask lines! This foundation won’t rub off as you change PPE. 
  • Let your stellar methodology and results be the only things that shine in your lab. These pressed powders maintain a matte look even under hot and humid lab / field conditions.
  • You may have to run after your subjects, but at least this eyeliner and mascara will stay exactly where you put it.

Coming soon: SciNote.org, launched by entrop-e, shychemist, and geogallery, is Tumblr’s project for promoting science education around the world.

At SciNote, we believe that science shouldn’t just be reading about the ideas of people with PhDs and Nobel Prizes. We believe that science is an active process of asking questions and finding answers.
That’s why we, at SciNote, want to hear from you. We want to ponder the interesting questions you pose and get excited with you over the cool science you see in your world.
SciNote will feature the best of the Tumblr science community, and we will compile and publish the top posts from every year in the form of a magazine available both digitally and in print. Think of SciNote magazine as the Tumblr science magazine.
We hope to celebrate our launch by featuring some of the coolest science from around Tumblr. So before we launch SciNote, we would like to collect 25 science posts and/or questions from you, including:
the most interesting science news you have come across
questions you’ve always wanted to ask
fascinating facts that you’ve learned
pictures of nature and/or science that you’ve taken
cool research that you’ve participated in
any other science-related thing you’d like to tell us!

So please:
Submit posts or ask questions to be featured on our blog and for an opportunity to be published in SciNote magazine.
Follow our blog at SciNote.org.
Read more about our project here.
If you’re interested, apply to join our staff here.
Reblog this post so that we can collect 25 posts and launch our project as soon as possible!
Thank you all and happy science!


I am so ridiculous excited about this. SciNote and SciNote mag have the ability to truly broadcast our collective Tumblr Science Side Community efforts out into the world in a way no other social media network has ever done. Signal boost this and let’s gooooo….

Well then, here’s a very interesting thing that I will be keeping an eye on and that you should keep an eye on too.

I think I’d very much like to be involved with this! I’ll have to see how my first semester course load goes. I have a seminar/colloquium course that might produce some nice paper/seminar/research summaries that would be appropriate. Go check it out!!

This is the coolest thing since earth circa 110,000-12,000 years before present (the most recent ice age). Holy frak.

Giant Octopus Released Back Into the Wild

Velma the Pacific Giant Octopus (Enteroctopus dofleini) was returned back into the wild today. The Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport, OR, typically keep their octopuses 6-9 months and release them once they outgrow their tank or show signs of getting ready to reproduce. For their specimens they depend on donations from local crabbers and fishers who accidentally catch them in their pots and nets. They’re currently on the lookout for their next resident octopus.

Ok before I realized this was about an octopus…..that was the most terrifyingly disturbing thing I had ever read.

I STARTED LAUGHING WHEN THE MAN HAD FIVE ARMS AND HAVEN’T STOPPED YET

my blog is too much randomized anger and roaring here is octopus sex

I feel like I might need to tag this as nsfw. so graphic.

Is this the infamous Mama Octopus that protected her clutch for almost five years?
