I HIGHLY RECOMMEND NOT BEING EMBARRASSED BY ANYTHING YOU DO OR LOVE JUST BECAUSE YOU THINK SOME OTHER PERSON IS JUDGING IT. OTHER PERSONS ARE DUMMIES, JUST LIKE YOU.

Here’s what you do… Go to your girlfriend’s place and apologize for tricking her into thinking you were an adult who could handle something as simple has pubic hair and then tell her she should leave you because you’re a jackass.

I’ve seen this photograph very frequently on tumblr and Facebook, always with the simple caption, “Ghost Heart”. What exactly is a ghost heart?
More than 3,200 people are on the waiting list for a heart transplant in the United States. Some won’t survive the wait. Last year, 340 died before a new heart was found.The solution: Take a pig heart, soak it in an ingredient commonly found in shampoo and wash away the cells until you’re left with a protein scaffold that is to a heart what two-by-four framing is to a house.Then inject that ghost heart, as it’s called, with hundreds of millions of blood or bone-marrow stem cells from a person who needs a heart transplant, place it in a bioreactor - a box with artificial lungs and tubes that pump oxygen and blood into it - and wait as the ghost heart begins to mature into a new, beating human heart.Doris Taylor, director of regenerative medicine research at the Texas Heart Institute at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital in Houston, has been working on this— first using rat hearts, then pig hearts and human hearts - for years.The process is called decellularization and it is a tissue engineering technique designed to strip out the cells from a donor organ, leaving nothing but connective tissue that used to hold the cells in place. This scaffold of connective tissue - called a “ghost organ” for its pale and almost translucent appearance - can then be reseeded with a patient’s own cells, with the goal of regenerating an organ that can be transplanted into the patient without fear of tissue rejection.This ghost heart is ready to be injected with a transplant recipient’s stem cells so a new heart - one that won’t be rejected - can be grown.(Source)

uhf. that is so inconvenient.

In my experience, being in love really is forever. Which is lovely and wonderful, even if the relationship ends, but also a little terrible at times, after the relationship ends for good. Maybe you ultimately maintain some kind of relationship, like a friendship, which is what I’ve generally done. And those friendships can be real, which is what I’ve sometimes found. And part of what makes those friendships so real is that there’s still love there. Not the same kind exactly; not the kind that makes you want to kiss and cuddle and share breath and skin. But love that makes you always want the best for that person, no matter whether or how much or how intentionally he hurt you once. And sometimes that love is still strong enough ten years after you were in love that it still stings a little thinking of what life might have been like if he had stayed in love with you too. Even if his hair is shorter and thinner than it was ten years ago. Even if he wears a necklace with a crystal now. Even if he’s slept with enough women in those ten years that you’d never actually feel comfortable touching him again. Even then. People that think love fades and disappears over time must be talking about some other love. I’ve found mine sticks around, in one form or another. And it mostly stays just as blind. Just as stupid. 

Commercial That Infuriated Me Today

Comcast commercial about how, *unlike* your asshole friends, Comcast, the benevolent company, won’t make up excuses when you call to ask for help moving. Their operators will gladly help you no problem. And with a smile! 

a) Typing things into a computer to transfer your cable subscription isn’t the same as moving furniture, a million boxes, and a trillion random things you didn’t bother putting in boxes.

b) If you’re an adult, hire a fucking mover. Your friends don’t work for you, dickhead.

Since Comcast is the worst company on the planet, I shouldn’t be surprised they’re propagating the bullshit notion that real friends should always do you the “favor” of helping you move, even though that’s actually nothing more than guilting people into free manual labor, but still. Fury.

What is this joy???

I actually do like him.

Boyfriend: <Sits quietly next to me, playing a game on his tablet, smiling away>

Me: Is that ANOTHER new game?

Boyfriend: <Just smiles and continues swiping his finger around>

Me: Are you just running around, being chased by someone?

Boyfriend: It’s a parkour game!

Me: …

Me: I hate your guts so much, I want to rip them out and strangle you with them.
