really tho straight guys will go on and on about how uncomfortable it makes them when gay guys hit on them but lets be fucking honest how many times have u seen a guy continue to hit on another guy after hes visibly uncomfortable vs. how many times a straight guy has continued to hit on a girl after shes visibly uncomfortable 

This needs more notes

this is really important

Seriously. Creepers don’t buy a clue.

The Fukang Meteorite

Back in the year 2000, an incredible meteorite weighing 2,211 pounds was discovered near Fukang, a city located in the northwestern region of Xinjiang, China. Named the Funkang meteorite, it was identified as a pallasite, a type of stony–iron meteorite. With 4.5 billion years in the making, its golden olivine mixed with silvery nickel-iron to create a stunningly beautiful mosaic effect.

Pallasites are extremely rare even among meteorites (only about 1% of all meteorites are this type) and Fukang has been hailed as one of the greatest meteorite discoveries of the 21st century.

It has since been divided into slices which give the effect of stained glass when the sun shines through them. It is so valuable that even tiny chunks sell in the region for $40 to $60 a gram. An anonymous collector holds the largest portion, which weighs 925 pounds.

That’s a big fukang meteorite.

this is one of my favorite gems. it looks more amazing in jewelry.

DAT NEGATIVE SPACE THO


this is probably one of the most beautiful nude photographs I’ve ever seen. everything is so perfectly spaced. these two people are beautiful themselves. the pose is perfect, even the forward flex of her back to the way he is standing and the lines and curves their bodies create, both contrasting and complimenting each other. i especially like the way even though he is more physically powerful, its the woman who is in a more bold, and powerful stance.

From my personal experience over the years, I have found it difficult sometimes to find modern art nouveau furniture reproductions either to buy, look at or use as reference. But by chance I found a website which lists craftsmen and artists who make custom made art nouveau pieces (chairs, beds, tables etc.) from today.

Minus a few pieces that aren’t really AN, there is quite a lot to look at! (and drool over ;) )….Take a look at the link below:
