Seriously, though this is kind of a big deal. Know that big problem we have? You know, the one involving a crapload of used plastic hanging around in landfills with nowhere to biodegrade for a couple million years? Well, Jonathan Russell might’ve solved that problem. See, Russell and his fellow Yale students went to Ecuador, where they found a new kind of fungus they’re calling Pestalotiopsis microspora. Big deal, you’re thinking. Anyone can find fungus anywhere! Well, something his fellow students found out after the fact is that this fungus can live on a diet of polyurethane alone — and even crazier, it doesn’t even need air to do so! In other words, we could potentially put it at the bottom of a landfill and cover it with plastic, and it would do the rest of the work. This might be game-changing if it works as advertised.

antiprolife:

Things that lower abortion rates:

  • Better access to condoms
  • Accessible birth control 
  • Accessible Plan - B pills
  • Comprehensive sex education

Things that do not lower abortion rates:

  • Abstinence-Only sex education
  • Banning contraceptives
  • Shaming people who have sex or get abortions
  • Making abortion illegal

Friendly daily reminder that the entire pro-life movement is basically pointless and counterproductive

Another of Loki’s Dirty Whispers, apologies if this one’s a little rougher, it was something of a rush-job and the impression still needs plenty of work.

"I chose you out of all the people of Midgard - out of all the beings in all the Realms. Show me I chose well. Make me pleased with my choice."

Another of Loki’s Dirty Whispers, this one unofficially requested by girliegirltm

This was a strange one. I’m not really sure about this reading of it, but hopefully people find it okay.

“You’re already whimpering and I’ve barely slipped one digit inside. Well then, how are two? Ah, yes… Little one, your cries and pulsing will only bring about more.”

I figured I should upload the first Loki’s Dirty Whispers recording as a proper tumblr audio file, since the first was just a link. Apologies for it not being new content, but hopefully some people will enjoy it anyway.

“What is there in these realms that I cannot be? If it is a god you search for, here I am. But know that I can be anything you wish. A mundane Midgardian. A king. A woman. A monster. A hero if you wish it. Simply say the word and it will be done.”
