“I myself am made entirely of flaws, stitched together with good intentions.”

Augusten Burroughs, Magical Thinking: True Stories (via hipsterhorcrux)

On one thing most physicists agree. If the amount of dark energy in our universe were only a little bit different than what it actually is, then life could never have emerged. A little larger, and the universe would have accelerated so rapidly that matter in the young universe could never have pulled itself together to form stars and hence complex atoms made in stars. And, going into negative values of dark energy, a little smaller and the universe would have decelerated so rapidly that it would have recollapsed before there was time to form even the simplest atoms… .

We are an accident. From the cosmic lottery hat containing zillions of universes, we happened to draw a universe that allowed life. But then again, if we had not drawn such a ticket, we would not be here to ponder the odds.


Physicist and writer extraordinaire Alan Lightman, the very first person to receive dual appointments in science and the humanities at MIT, on dark energy, the multiverse, and why we exist – superb, mind-bending read.  (via elucipher)

after the chaos and destruction,

after the stench of death

fades from our collective memories,

a process of development.

razing the skeletal remains of buildings

and tilling the earth with heavy machinery,

a ritual of moving on.

an attempt at recovery,

and yet we stumble

Don’t date boys
who like Bukowski
they’ll hate you
‘cause you love them
they’ll be pissed
your life isn’t whiskey
and didn’t get your number
from a napkin in a bar

Don’t date girls

Good to know people were just as fucking weird before the internet.
