A spanish designer Martin Azua has designed an Awesome Urn which Will Turn You into a Tree After You Die
His urn is made from coconut shell, compacted peat and cellulose and inside it contains the seed of a tree.
Once your remains have been placed into the urn, it can be planted and then the seed germinates and begins to grow. You even get the choice to pick the type of plant you would like to become, depending on the kind of planting space you prefer.
I wanna be a mango tree and destroy people’s walls. Or be an avocado tree…
s an example of how articles about women are handled on Wikipedia and how Wikipedia is central in shaping knowledge, I showed the history of the Sandra Fluke article; its deletion; its recreation as Rush Limbaugh-Sandra Fluke controversy; and its final recreation three and a half months later as “Sandra Fluke.” This led to a larger discussion about how the structure of Wikipedia and its conception of knowledge perpetuates the patriarchy. “Rush Limbaugh-Sandra Fluke controversy” was the first Google hit for Sandra Fluke’s name for at least three months. As became clear from our conversation, Wikipedia’s rules are not neutral or objective – they have very real political consequences. Wikipedia allowed Sandra Fluke to be defined by Rush Limbaugh’s wildly inappropriate and derogatory comments, rather than by her own life story, and helped fuel an irrelevant news story.

i love the term ‘signal boost’ it sounds so official like we’re all sitting in a control room and we’re wearing headsets and whenever someone sees something important they mumble
‘boosting the signal on post/2346713 in under 10 seconds’
‘dashboards prepping to be informed’
‘blogger 64, you’re in the clear’
‘post successfully arrived on the dashboard’
‘boosting was successful’
‘good job, team’
I just got a year’s worth of hosting for $12.50…and that isn’t even their cheapest plan. GoDaddy is increasing their monthly hosting rate for my http://rapedattufts.info blog this Friday, so this is right on time! Excited the company won’t get any more money for me.
