The Burning Monk- Thich Quang Duc (1963) sat down in meditation position at Saigon. He then poured gasoline all over his body and set himself alight. He maintained his calm meditative position and did not even make a sound while his body burned and then within a few minutes toppled over. His body was consumed but his heart remained intact. It was placed in the Reserve Bank of Vietnam and is called the Symbol Of The Holy Heart.

He wanted to show people that we can do incredible things when we practice mindfulness. He also wanted to show the world the injustice that was being perpetrated on the Buddhist religion and community by a repressive regime. Needless to say, it worked pretty well and the government softened up on the Buddhist. He is a remarkable symbol of the incredible power the mind holds.

On an Island north of Siberia, frozen remains of a mammoth have been discovered with blood that is STILL liquid! The 10,000-year-old beast was found on one of the Lyakhovsky Islands in the Novosibirsk archipelago off the northern coast of Siberia. Researchers from the Northeastern Federal University in Yakutsk poked the remains with an ice pick and, incredibly, blood flowed out.

Since the temperature during excavation was -7 to -10 degrees celsius, the scientist say that “It may be assumed that the blood of mammoths had some cryoprotective properties”. How fucking awesome is that!?

Voyager Golden Record 1977

If the human race manages to kill itself, a set of pictures and sounds of Earth were put on Voyager 1 and 2. This time capsule of sorts, was intended for alien or far-future human life that may encounter the Voyager. It would help them understand the culture and diversity of life on Earth. Carl Sagan headed the committee that chose what would go inside.

Here are some of the pictures

The man in the picture is Rachid Nekkaz, a French-Algerian businessman living in France.

He heard about the niqab ban in France. Then he announced that he will pay all fines for women who wear the niqab - not just in France but “in any country in the world that bans women from doing so”.

He opened a fund of € 1 million. Then he said, “My sister, go out free wherever you want and I will pay the fine for you”

Allahu Akbar, May Allah reward him.

Take note FEMA this is how you properly do activism to help women who cover themselves.

Fucked…. 

I hope that this image travels the world …“While newspapers and television talk about the lives of celebrities, the chief of the Kayapo tribe received the worst news of his life: Dilma, “The new president of Brazil, has given approval to build a huge hydroelectric plant (the third largest in the world). It is the death sentence for all the people near the river because the dam will flood 400,000 hectares of forest. More than 40,000 Indians will have to find another place to live. The natural habitat destruction, deforestation and the disappearance of many species is a fact.”What moves me in my very bowels , making me ashamed of being part of Western culture, is the reaction of the chief of the Kayapo community when he learned of the decision—his gesture of dignity and helplessness before the advance of capitalist progress, modern predatory civilization that does not respect the differences …But we know that a picture is worth a thousand words, showing the reality of the true price of our bourgeois “quality of life”.


400,000 hectares gone, forever, in the name of “progress”.

Anonymous said: besides your physical attraction to zayn, tell us what you like about him! i hardly ever hear you talk about his cute moments the way you do with harry~ zayn's a dummy too u_u

benwinstagram:

looking at zayn scrambles my brain into pure ‘fuck this ass’ mode so i understand but pls i love zayn for more than his perfectly crafted face. i love how he’s so soft-spoken but he’s got that rough accent, it’s such a lovely combination i love his speaking voice, i cd listen to him mumble forever with his geeky lil laugh. i also think his sense of humour is underappreciated as fuck, he cracks me up—the faces he makes are beautiful. and let’s not forget his twitter, that walmart tweet still fucks me the fuck up, and his hey mama! fiasco of a joke. he’s so sarcastic too but he still manages to give gross heart eyes to his boyz whenever he calls them out for saying stupid shit or having subpar vocabularies

and of course he’s a total nerdass bitch like the way he runs is so tragic, and he loves comic books enough to get onomatopoeia in speech bubbles tattooed, always wants to talk about the power rangers like who is this guy— remember that pic of everoyne being normal and then there’s him in the power rangers helmet and light saber lmao

like he’s so quietly fucking weird? the things he chooses to tweet??? how he had that secret instagram forever and it’s just selfies??? like he’s hot as hell and dresses all cool but then ????? omg remember him and liam wearing those power rangers outfits fans brought them that is who we’re dealing with zayn would prolly cosplay lbr. also his love of gangster films esp british ones, how he seems to have eclectic tastes like HE DRESSED AS BROSON IN THAT SCENE IN JAPAN WTF i just wanna talk to himmmm also he loves animals and lowkey does charity shit and he can just be so quiet and i hate it cos where are you and love it at the same time cos yas my introverted boo do you but also its cute that he’s such a homebody and has sO MANY PETS he named his lizard arnie what the fck

and he’s so sensitive too, he got offended on niall’s behalf when liam described him inaccurately in that interview, he huffs when he doesn’t get chosen for shit, HE GETS SO HEART EYES and soft when that interviewer asked harry what he loves about zayn and then hugs him after and omg in the most recent interviews with zarriall he’s just so soft spoken and trying to be polite he’s like a lil kid hands in lap, smiling, being as gentle as he can and trying to answer her questions even tho niall and harry are being sarcastic lil fucks but he also looks back and forth between them all in love the fuck why is he so— 

and i love that he’s a stoner fuck. i just love it i dont care i wanna roll up w him and listen to j cole then order kfc ~_~. i also love that he dont give a fuck anymore he just does what he wants to do cos haters gonna hate hate hate hate look i love him he captioned a fishing picture ‘poppin caps in the water hood ! ;)’ this is the kind of loser we are dealing with he;s just lucky he fine as hell too what a dork ZAYN

PSA FOR ARTISTS

sweatycheeseburger:

If you’re doing a “hijabi” racebend or whatever please give your hijabi a country. A brown girl in a hijab can be literally any race. Please dont interchangeably use middle eastern women with muslim women. Like instead of Hijabi wonderwoman say Turkish wonderwoman the hijab you’ve drawn on will be proof enough she’s hijabi. AGAIN DONT USE HIJABI INTERCHANGEABLEY WITH MIDDLE EASTERN WOMEN
