    How cool is it that when you take all the cells out of an organ it still looks like an organ?

    I remember when I was in high school and still very confused about how tissues worked, because all anyone taught me was that we’re made up of piles of cells hung on bones.  But that’s not how it is!  Cells build themselves little hammocks of polymer and densely branched glycoproteins; we’re like onions, layers of membrane over tough rubbery collagen, huge protein scaffolds cradling slippery organs.

    Bodies are not made of cells — bodies are made by cells.

    That was the coolest explanation I’ve heard

    My little brother and I were swimming and my dad walked out and said “it’s trash day tomorrow you know what that means” and my brother looked at me dead in the eyes and said “it’s time for you to go.”

    Pro-tip: shaming and judging people will not help lower abortions rates. Advocating and promoting better access to free/cheap birth control and comprehensive sex education for the schools and general public, will.

    Yes, I’m looking at you, pro-life community. Actions speak louder than words, and if all you do is sit behind a computer and tell people how horrible they are for making the best choice for themselves, YOU’RE PART OF THE PROBLEM, not the solution.

    you know how a period is supposed to last 3-7 days

    who is that asshole that only has to suffer 3 days
