In french he say “Je peux voir ta lune ?” “Can I see your moon ? ” it means “ass” but in a cute and childhish way, I’m so shocked, the english version is hardcore. 

In Dutch it says “mag ik je hemelse lichaam zien?” Which translates to “can I see your heavenly body?”

English still wins on crudeness.

UM EXCUSE ME THOS E ARE FUCKING PIXELS HOW

Seize the Day was a calendar program made by in 1994 by Buena Vista software. It features graphics that at the time, were revolutionary because of the way they handled color cycling. These images were static bitmaps, but by changing color values, they appear animated. What is also impressive about these images is that they had full day night cycles built in, rendered also through color cycling.
A few years ago, a html5 version was made. A copy was uncovered online and there is a way to use the program through DOSbox. As well, one of the original programmers for the project, Iam Gilman, has thought of the idea of remaking it, open sourced, for modern machines.

thanks for writing a more elaborate explanation. i’ve seen these pictures be spread like wildfire without mention of the technology behind it.

Oh, I remember the html5 version from a while back.

i really appreciate the WHOLE BACKSTORY ON THIS FUKr

aaaaaah perfection!!! i love pixels.

Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”

Shut up already.

The ALS Association has a 4-star rating from Charity Watchdog. 

And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection. 

As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…

A friend of mine posted an update from one of HER friends to FB earlier.  Her dad has ALS.  The ALS foundation came out to see if they could put in a ramp for his wheelchair, but they couldn’t afford it because of the kind of ramp he needed for the kind of house they had.

This week they called back and said hey, the thing is, we suddenly have a bunch of money, so we’re coming out to build that ramp.  And they did.  She posted pics.

So if you feel like bitching about the ice bucket challenge…reconsider.

okay this is very very important and i didn’t realise that many people were unaware of this (and i completely empathise with everyone else that has commented); funding for the quality of life for patients of severe degenerative diseases are incredibly important, very expensive, and difficult to get funding for. my aunt has very severe MS - and although many patients live with a good quality for life for some time, she went downhill very quickly and has virtually no control over movement in her limbs.

is research important? yes, but if you’re a sufferer of a neuro-degenerative disease that will kill you in a couple of years, what matters to you is not getting bedsores when you have to lie in bed for months on end, getting specially adapted cars to take your wheelchair so you aren’t stuck in the house forever (regular transport is really expensive if you’re a wheelchair user), easier and less humiliating ways to be able to drink and eat, better carers, more support for you and your family as they try to help you through your illness -

this is so so important and very expensive and you need to understand this is just as important as the research going into neuro-degenerative diseases because for current patients and sufferers the human cost is already too great      

(MS has some symptoms in common with ALS/MND but ALS patients have their neurons directly affected; in MS the myelin that protect nerve fibres are attacked and damaged by the immune system which in turn damages the nerve  - also MND patients’ conditions will degenerate faster; whereas it varies with MS patients, depending on how fast the nerves are damaged. only between 2-3 million people in the world are sufferers so it’s hard to get funding and harder to ensure a sufferer’s quality of life)

As a college student, currently really hungry with nothing to eat, I understand how hard it can be to get food. Sometimes you really just don’t have the money to eat and when you do, you waste it all on fast food instead of stocking up on cheap things because you’re so tired of Ramen Noodes and canned food you could barf. So, I’ve composed a list of recipes and resources that will fit a college kid’s budget and appetite. Don’t go hungry! <3
