Female Captain America cosplayers.

Found here.

Anyone who says anything about demoralizing women for those who picked a skin tight suit for their cosplay can straight fuck themselves because they obviously have not seen Captain’s buns IN EVERY SCENE HE IS EVER IN OKAY

Saving the world, and looking fine as hell the whole time.

As a 19-year-old sophomore at Stanford, Elizabeth Holmes decided to transform diagnostic medicine so she dropped out of college and used her tuition money to start her own company, Theranos. Ten years later, Holmes, pictured here holding a micro-vial, is on the cutting edge of medical technology — her new blood testing method allows hundreds of tests to be run using only a few drops of blood. And, Holmes’ methods are cheaper, faster, more accurate, and less invasive than conventional methods which often require a separate vial of blood for every test.As Holmes told Wired.com earlier this year, “I started this company because I wanted to spend my life changing our health care system. When someone you love gets really sick, most of the time when you find out, it’s too late to be able to do something about it. It’s heartbreaking… We wanted to make actionable health information accessible to people everywhere at the time it matters most. That means two things: being able to detect conditions in time to do something about them and providing access to information that can empower people to improve their lives.”

I feel kinda like the face of my #inktober person has gotten less and less enthusiastic as the month goes on

"Everywhere I look, I’m surrounded by things. All of these things fill my life and yet I feel empty."And then in one, the person just rages and breaks things. Just mayhem and anger and stuff is strewn about. And then the person tries to fix things with glue and there are Band-Aids for the rage injuries.:)

it just kept going around the track yelling exterminate

I literally cannot think of anything more ironic than a Dalek participating in Relay for Life.

idk, maybe he just wants to exterminate cancer.
