I was just a 17-year old kid from the Bronx with dreams of becoming a scientist, and somehow the world’s most famous astronomer found time to invite me to Ithaca in upstate NY and spend a Saturday with him.
I remember that snowy day like it was yesterday. He met me at the bus stop. He showed me his laboratory at Cornell University. Carl reached behind his desk, and inscribed this book (Cosmic Connection) for me:
For Neil Tyson,
With all good wisdom to a future astronomer.
- Carl Sagan
At the end of the day, he drove me back to the bus station. The snow was falling harder. He wrote his phone number, his home phone number, on a scrap of paper. And he said, “If the bus can’t get through, call me. Spend the night at my home, with my family.”
I already knew I wanted to become a scientist, but that afternoon I learned from Carl the kind of person I wanted to become. He reached out to me and to countless others. Inspiring so many of us to study, teach, and do science. Science is a co-operative enterprise, spanning the generations. It’s the passing of a torch from teacher to student to teacher. A community of minds reaching back from antiquity and forward to the stars.

Um, definitely no one cried at my house during this part, in case anyone was wondering.
THE EPIC OF GILGAMESH I
GILGAMESH IS THE KING OF URUK, AND HE’S TWO-THIRDS GOD. HE’S ALSO A COMPLETE DICK. HE MAKES ALL THE GREEK HEROES LOOK NICE AND FLUFFY.
GILGAMESH IS THE KING, AND HE LIKES TO OPPRESS HIS PEOPLE. THIS MEANS HE RAPES ALL THE WOMEN. LITERALLY. ALL OF THEM. AND HE ENSLAVES THE MEN TO BUILD FUCKING MASSIVE TEMPLES AND SHIT LIKE THAT. ALL THE PEOPLE ARE MISERABLE, SO THEY PRAY TO THE GODS TO HELP.
THE MESOPOTAMIAN GODS ARE EITHER FUCKING INSANE OR DEAF, SO THEY MAKE A MAN GREAT ENOUGH TO CHALLENGE GILGAMESH. HIS NAME IS ENKIDU, AND HE’S BASICALLY A FUCKING BEARD ON LEGS. OH, AND HE LIVES IN A BUSH.
GILGAMESH FINDS OUT ABOUT ENKIDU, WHO’S BEEN FUCKING ABOUT IN THE WOODS AND MAKING A MESS, AND DECIDES TO TAME HIM. THIS MEANS GETTING A PROSTITUTE TO SEDUCE HIM AND LURE HIM BACK TO URUK. ENKIDU MAY LOOK LIKE A BEARD ON LEGS, BUT SHAMHAT THE PROSTITUTE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT SHE’S IN FOR. IT TAKES A WHOLE WEEK, BUT AFTER SEVEN DAYS OF NON-STOP SEX IN A BUSH, ENKIDU AGREES TO GO BACK TO URUK.
me everytime a character in a movie has to get a few drops of their blood for some ritual bullshit (via jtoday)
WHILE WE’RE AT IT, why do people try to cross those skinny bridges over lava/chasms/whatever by walking upright. IT’S CALLED CENTER OF GRAVITY. get on your hands and knees and crawl across that thing. HUG IT. SCOOT YOUR BUTT ACROSS. “but i look stupid!” lalalala but we’ll avoid that ~dramatic moment~ where you almost fall over and die because your damn fucking self wanted to look COOL
and stop yanking IV lines out of your arms the minute you wake up in the hospital
That is a broadsword, why are you fencing with it(via gallifrey-feels)
