Daddy Longer Legs
“An enormous, new, leggy arachnid with a leg span is just over 13 inches (33 centimeters) has been found lurking in the caves of the Southeast Asian nation of Laos.
The creature is a type of harvestmen, a group of arachnids colloquially called “daddy longlegs” and frequently mistaken for spiders. (The two animals are related, as both are types of arachnids.) The species hasn’t previously been described, according to a release describing the finding.”

To all the women who quietly made history.

This reminds me of this:

Finally, and this is important: even those women who weren’t inventors and intellectuals, even those women who really did spend all their lives doing stereotypical “women’s work”—they also built this world. The mundane labor of life is what makes everything else possible. Before you can have scientists and engineers and artists, you have to have a whole bunch of people (and it’s usually women) to hold down the basics: to grow and harvest and cook the food, to provide clothes and shelter, to fetch the firewood and the water, to nurture and nurse, to tend and teach. Every single scrap of civilized inventing and dreaming and thinking rides on top of that foundation. Never forget that.

The Women of Asgarda | In the Ukraine, a country where females are victims of sexual trafficking and gender oppression, a new tribe of empowered women is emerging. Calling themselves the “Asgarda”, the women seek complete autonomy from men. Residing in the Carpathian Mountains, the tribe is comprised of 150 women of varying ages, primarily students, led by 30 year-old Katerina Tarnouska. Reviving the tribal traditions of the Scythian Amazons of ancient Greek mythology, the Asgarda train in martial arts, taught by former Soviet karate master, Volodymyr Stepanovytch, and learn life skills and sciences in order to become ideal women. 

Will always reblog these badasses.

3D Geometric Photography by David Copithorne [on tumblr]

Shot entirely in Brazil the photographer David Copithorne combines traditional film photography with digital manipulation. By layering geometric shapes over Brazilian landscapes David is able to warp and distort the image, almost as if a virtual magnifying glass was placed on top of a photo.
