Mine Kafon by Massoud Hassani
Hassani, a product designer from Afganistan, build (by hand) a wind-powered device that trips land mines as it rolls across the ground. It is made using bamboo and biodegradable products.
Many of these mines are active and near populated areas in countries like Afganistan and are hard to remove. The UN says that one mine clearance specialist is killed, and two injured, for every 5,000 mines cleared.
Hassani’s cheap and easy to make method has been achieving great results.
In a world of overcomplicated solutions, we need more people who think “Wait, why don’t we just roll a giant freaking ball over it?”
this guy made a katamari for landmines
when straight guys ask how lesbian sex works i feel really bad for their girlfriends because if you dont understand how to have sex with a girl in any way other than repeatedly putting your dick in her you are having some really bad sex
i want to reblog this 100 times but i’ll just do it once
"- and it’ll be a hell of a ride when it does (via dvlanspravberry)
When you’re 8
And the girl you love turns you down
So this must be the end of the world
But you get over it
Because it’s not
When you’re 11
And your mom passes
You cry and scream and think
This is the end of the world
And it is
But the earth’s still spinning
So it’s not
When you’re 14
And your dad’s been drinking
You get mad and start throwing punches
Because he’s your whole world now
And it can’t end like this
So he stops
And it doesn’t
When you’re 16
And your best friend gets bit
You throw yourself into research
He’s the north to your south
And your worlds are intertwined
So if his ends so does yours
But you won’t let it
And when you’re 16"
You meet your whole world
And you don’t realize who he is
Until you’ve saved him
And you’re both shaking and cold
So you wait until he feels it too
Because your world hasn’t even started spinning
Wow! What did you do to get your hair that gorgeous colour in the Cecil test/kumoricon post? Because that "hair is perfect, and we all hate and despair and love that perfect hair in equal measure."

I used vegan violet blue manic panic and blue splat, mixed them with a little bit of conditioner and sat out in the sun with a bag on my head for an hour. I proceeded to wash it about 3 times,
"I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.- : I am not Mike Brown. (via fitle-tight)
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged."
