    That’s how many lives could be saved by lifting the ban on gay blood donors (via micdotcom)

    Since 1977, the FDA has banned all men who have ever had sex with another man from ever donating blood. But in recent years, countries like the U.K. and Canada have lifted similar bans, recognizing the inherent and unfounded homophobic stereotypes of these laws. And based on the new research findings, it’s time for the U.S. to do the same.

A Brazilian man recently submitted a birth certificate that if verified would mean he is 126-years-old.
According to the document, Jose Aguinelo dos Santos, was born on July 7, 1888 to African slave parents.
Once verified he will be the oldest man on the planet.

    Some magical tulle action happening today. I have to make the tulle layer a bit shorter, then smooth it out on the bottom and sew it into place. By this time tomorrow it should be looking much more finished and less messy!

    I’ve decided to completely change the bodice design so it might take me longer then expected to get this project finished. But hopefully it’ll be done in time to take advantage of the nearby pumpkin patch and sunflower field!

  10. People tend to think research is a lot of analyzing data and intense work and exciting discoveries when in reality it’s a small Chinese man wearing large plastic gloves struggling to open a small test tube muttering “I hate this. I hate this.” over and over.
