“I can’t dump him now, because then people would think I am even more of a slut than they already do. How could one mistake cause my life to crumble like this?”
Would you publish your diary from when you were a pre-teen on the Internet for the entire world to read?
This is exactly what 27-year-old Emily Lindin (pen name) is doing in the name of countering slut shaming, with a Tumblr blog she has named The UnSlut Project.

This is super cool
I love this because it is cool, and also because it furthers a point I love to make to people: old folks usually don’t feel like they’re old folks. They were just like you once.
Kowloon Walled City | A population density nightmare
Kowloon Walled City was a largely ungoverned Chinese settlement in Kowloon, Hong Kong, comprising of 350 interconnected high-rise buildings where 33,000 residents lived within a plot measuring just 210 meter by 120 meter. Originally a Chinese military fort, the Walled City became an enclave after the New Territories were leased to Britain in 1898. Its population increased dramatically following the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong during World War II and reached a peak of 33,000 residents in 1987. When it was demolished in 1993-94, it was thought to be the most densely populated place on earth.
In Peter Greenaway’s The Pillow Book, Nagiko (Vivian Wu) runs away to Kowloon after breaking up rather explosively with her “hand-picked” husband.

that is the fucking cutest thing ever
This is a piece of the Esquel meteorite, a meteorite found in Chubut, Argentina in 1951 as a single mass weighing more than 700 kilograms.
It is a pallasite meteorite, and that is why it contains such strange shapes and patterns. Pallasites are translucent, olivine crystals embedded in an iron-nickel matrix.

‘Beyond reasonable doubt’: King Richard III’s remains found buried beneath England parking lot
He wore the English crown, but he ended up defeated, humiliated and reviled. Now things are looking up for King Richard III. Scientists announced Monday that they had found the monarch’s 500-year-old remains under a parking lot in the city of Leicester — a discovery Richard’s fans say will rewrite the history books.
University of Leicester researchers say tests on a battle-scarred skeleton unearthed last year prove “beyond reasonable doubt” that it is the king, who died at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485, and whose remains have been missing for centuries.
“Richard III, the last Plantaganet King of England, has been found,” said the university’s deputy registrar, Richard Taylor. (AP Photo/ University of Leicester)
Sorry why are more people not screaming about this???
Dead king under a car park in my home town! I don’t think I’ve been this excited about an iconic event in Leicester since the first Nandos opened in the town centre.
