HOW DO YOU MAKE A GUY

My brother is super into being fit and super fucking muscular. I asked him if he had a thigh gap. He told me that was fucking stupid. He said his thighs don’t even grow hair because of how much he doesn’t have a thigh gap. I then told him the only benefit would be that I would never have to buy new jeans because the legs wore out.
PS. If you have a thigh gap, that’s cool, but I like having my legs and their size. My brother is not so current on how to be kind to all body types. But I do agree that wanting a thigh gap is a bit strange, but if it’s what you want, don’t hurt yourself to get there.
Steve Wilhite, the creator of the GIF, chiming in on the pronunciation of the word. (As everyone knows, choosy memes choose “jif.”) Wilhite, a former CompuServe employee, created the format in 1987 and is to receive an award for his creation tonight. (via shortformblog)
I say it with a hard ‘G’ because 20 years ago when I started messing with GIFs there was no one to tell me how to pronounce it correctly. I chose the most logical pronunciation and went with it. When you get used to saying something a certain way for 20 years… that’s pretty much how you are going to say it no matter how incorrect someone tells you it is.
It’s like someone trying to tell you “Sun” is actually pronounced wombatnards. It’s going to take an awful lot of effort to train your brain to say “I got a really bad wombatnardsburn today. I should have used more wombatnardsblock.”

You may not know this, but I live in Oklahoma City, just a bit North of where the tornado hit yesterday.
A lot of folks here, including good friends of mine, have lost their homes, pets, and loved ones. To help, I’m making some laser cut Oklahoma necklaces with a heart over Moore for $10 each….
I think Loco is actually insane sometimes. But also, very dumb.
You know, the one that gives housewives/full-time mothers a pension— wages for housework?
It’s ONLY A HUGE VICTORY FOR FEMINISM, SOCIALISM, AND WOMEN OF COLOR. Not a big deal or anything. Tumblr is mysteriously silent about this.

What Does A Black Hole Sound Like?
Sept. 9, 2003: Astronomers using NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory have found, for the first time, sound waves from a supermassive black hole. The “note” is the deepest ever detected from any object in our Universe. The tremendous amounts of energy carried by these sound waves may solve a longstanding problem in astrophysics.
The black hole resides in the Perseus cluster of galaxies located 250 million light years from Earth. In 2002, astronomers obtained a deep Chandra observation that shows ripples in the gas filling the cluster. These ripples are evidence for sound waves that have traveled hundreds of thousands of light years away from the cluster’s central black hole.
“The Perseus sound waves are much more than just an interesting form of black hole acoustics,” says Steve Allen, of the Institute of Astronomy and a co-investigator in the research. “These sound waves may be the key in figuring out how galaxy clusters, the largest structures in the Universe, grow.”
Uh… Light can’t escape a black hole how can sound?
You’re right. That’s what’s odd about this post
We don’t have a black hole anywhere bear our solar system, scientists barely know what they look like, but they know what they sound like? I smell bs.
IS ANYONE EVER GOING TO PRESS PLAY
OH MY GOD!
