WATCH LIVE: Orionid Meteor Shower Peaks TonightAn annual meteor shower is set to peak tonight providing skywatchers with an ideal opportunity to see a “falling star.”The Orionid meteor shower, deriving its name from the constellation Orion that the meteors appear to come from, occurs every year for approximately a week in late October. The prolific meteor shower is created from the debris coming off of Halley’s comet, which enters Earth’s atmosphere creating what appear to be “falling stars.”You should be able to see up to 20 meteors per hour in the early morning hours on Tuesday. No telescope is required to view the meteor shower.

Bicicleta Sem Freio x JUSTKIDS Euro Tour.

Brazilian collective Bicicleta Sem Freio just returned from a month long tour in Europe organized by JustKids. Dubbed the “JustKids Euro Tour”, Bicicleta Sem Freio stopped by six different cities to bring their good vibes to the residents. Passing through London, Berlin, Pinerolo, Gaeta, Terracina and Turin, BSF worked their magic on a series of 5 spectacular Street Art murals and worked with an old Italian master printer on an amazing screen print (last image, above).  See more of their murals from the Euro Tour below.

Call a boy a gentleman and watch his shoulders straighten. Call a girl a lady and watch her spirit turn graceful. Humanity was brought into existence by God speaking words into the void of the universe. We tend to become what we are called.

"If more girls wanted to be scientists, there would be more female scientists"

*takes a deep breath* WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY THAT ACTIVELY DISCOURAGES FEMALE INTELLIGENCE BY PAINTING IT AS A NON FEMININE TRAIT AND SETS UP MALES TO BE IN POSITIONS OF ACADEMIC SUPERIORITY DESPITE THERE BEING NO CORRELATION BETWEEN GENDER AND ACADEMIC ABILITY thank you for your time

Early Feminists: Oh hey, we see that you can vote. We would like to vote also. I mean, since most of those laws effect us too and all.
Men: YOU JUST WANT SUPERIORITY OVER MEN!
Mid-century Feminists: Hey, that whole thing about how you can have careers and earn a living wage outside the home? Yes that sounds nice, we'd like the option to do that as well.
Men: YOU WANT A MATRIARCHY, THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT!
Late 20th century Feminists: Hey we would like to make our own choices about our reproductive health, just like you've always had.
Men: YOU ARE TRYING TO TAKE MEN'S RIGHTS AWAY!
Modern-day feminists: Hey, if you could you stop sexually assaulting/harassing us and them blaming us for it, that'd be pretty great.
Men: THIS IS MISANDRY, MISANDRY I SAY! FEMINISTS HAVE GONE TOO FAR!
Feminists: Um...
Men: THE END OF MEN IS NIGH! MALE OPPRESSION IS REAL! THE MATRIARCHAL AGE IS UPON US!
