01) Conservatives Lose Their Minds Over a Gay Cartoon


“Two students from the Ringling College of Art completed a 4-minute animated short that starred gay characters. After their project went viral, triggered conservatives quickly vocalized how offended they were, accusing members of the LGBT community of trying to “recruit” children into homosexuality. In this segment we provide you with examples of their outrage and laugh at these right-wing SJWs.

01) Universe – Beyond the Big Bang


“The Big Bang theory is the prevailing cosmological model for the universe from the earliest known periods through its subsequent large-scale evolution. The model describes how the universe expanded from a very high density and high-temperature state and offers a comprehensive explanation for a broad range of phenomena, including the abundance of light elements, the cosmic microwave background (CMB), large scale structure and Hubble’s Law. If the known laws of physics are extrapolated to the highest density regime, the result is a singularity which is typically associated with the Big Bang. Detailed measurements of the expansion rate of the universe place this moment at approximately 13.8 billion years ago, which is thus considered the age of the universe. After the initial expansion, the universe cooled sufficiently to allow the formation of subatomic particles and later simple atoms. Giant clouds of these primordial elements later coalesced through gravity in halos of dark matter, eventually forming the stars and galaxies visible today.”

Resomation: Would a green cremation be your funeral wish?…

01) Resomation: Would a green cremation be your funeral wish?

“When poet Jeanette Pickersgill became the first British person to be legally cremated in 1885, it probably seemed unimaginable something so revolutionary would eclipse burial to become the funeral wish of three quarters of us today.

So could flameless ‘green cremation’ be the next big thing? Planners have given the go-ahead for a Resomation unit to be installed at Rowley Regis crematorium in the West Midlands, which could see the UK’s first water cremation take place by the end of 2017.

Also known as alkaline hydrolysis, Resomation is an alternative cremation process which speeds up the way our bodies return to nature when they are buried. Under the earth, a similar hydrolysis process can take years, but with the appliance of science, very hot water and five per cent potassium hydroxide – a compound used in soap and shampoo – a water cremation takes around four hours.

In the United States, more than two and a half thousand green cremations have already taken place, since a company based in Glasgow – and with a factory in Leeds – introduced its revolutionary technology there.”

This is fascinating. I love water, and always liked the idea of being buried at sea…But since that’s not very likely to happen, maybe this is a wet alternative?
