You are good at something, stop lying to yourself. You’re good at breaking down comic book plots, cooking ramen perfectly, making your friends happy, knowing the time without looking at a clock, getting the perfect ending at RPG’s, or figuring out the twist ending to movies. Don’t let society tell you your talents are meaningless because they don’t serve an economical purpose. Your talents reflect your interests and passions, and what’s important to you is important.
One of the coolest hidden features on UM’s campus is the Philip L. Wright Zoological Museum. The museum contains more than 24,000 specimens of vertebrates, including birds, mammals and fish. It is the largest zoological collection in Montana and one of the major zoological collections representing the Northern Rocky Mountains.
These photos feature some of the beautiful specimens in the collection, as well as former curator David Dyer and Emily Graslie before she moved her educational YouTube show “The Brain Scoop” to the renowned Field Museum in Chicago.

Oh, I was not at all expecting to be bulldozed by nostalgia this morning.
I miss you, Montana. I’ll love that Museum till the end of my days.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the first week of The New Show. A lot of work went into making this show something special and different from anything you’ve seen before.
With every episode, I tried to bring you something a little different, yet somehow familiar, and to be honest. I had…

I think this is the aquarium in Okinawa… That whale shark will make you think. The “tagalong fish” that hang under its fins are bigger than you.And there are a couple dolphins that zip around in there from time to time that look like they would annoy the shit out of the rest of them coasting along in the flow.
50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.
It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.
While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.
Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it.
It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.
