This woman is posing a clear and present danger to the Police Officer. She is clearly a viable threat. Something's gotta give. And soon.

Fact# 5857: Henrietta Lacks died in 1951. The tumor that killed her has been alive and growing to this day. The tumor is immortal and was used to progress the Polio vaccine and is the jumping point for most human cell research to this day. Scientists have grown some 20 tons of her cells.

They forgot the part where they took the cells and grew them without her consent.

They also forgot the part where to this day her family and still-living descendants have not received any compensation for the use of her stolen cells.

They also also forgot the part where she was Black.

I thought people already knew that she’s black

also this article says her story's gonna be made into a movie

The Float Table is a matrix of “magnetized” wooden cubes that levitate with respect to one another. The repelling cubes are held in equilibrium by a system of tensile steel cables.

It’s classical physics applied to modern design. Each handcrafted table is precisely tuned to seem rigid and stable, yet a touch reveals the secret to Float’s dynamic character.

I feel the major urge to sit on it.

I want ten of them

Bill Watterson: A cartoonist’s advice.

Great panel by Gavin Aung Than on zenpencils.com detailing a quote from Bill Watterson’s graduation speech that he gave at his alma mater, Kenyon College, in 1990.

“The comic is basically the story of my life, except I’m a stay-at-home-dad to two dogs. My ex-boss even asked me if I wanted to return to my old job.

- My original dream was to become a successful newspaper comic strip artist and create the next Calvin and Hobbes. That job almost doesn’t exist anymore as newspapers continue to disappear and the comics section gets smaller and smaller, often getting squeezed out of newspapers entirely. I spent years sending submissions to syndicates in my early 20s and still have the rejection letters somewhere. I eventually realised it was a fool’s dream (also, my work was nowhere near good enough) and decided webcomics was the place to be. It’s mouth-watering to imagine what Watterson could achieve with webcomics, given the infinite possibilities of the online medium.

- My style is already influenced by Watterson, but this is the first time I’ve intentionally tried to mimic his work. It’s been fun poring through Calvin and Hobbesstrips the past week while working on this comic and it was a humbling reminder that I still have a long way to go.

- The quotes I’ve used in the write-up above are taken from the introduction to The Complete Calvin and Hobbes collection, which sits proudly on my desk.

- Thanks to Marlyn, Emily, Joseph, and Suchismita for submitting this speech.”
