I found this in a drawer at my desk in the lab… are you fuckin serious, Sigma?

Come on Sigma… I want one, too!

Sam Vimes sighed when he heard the scream, but he finished shaving before he did anything about it.

Does giving up a baby for adoption erase all the extra personal expenses shelled out over the course of a pregnancy? Does it magically restore any pay or chance at advancement that you might have lost? Does the act of adoption fully return your body to its pre-pregnancy, uninjured state, such that you don’t need time off work to recover afterward? Does it decrease the cost of taking care of pregnancy-induced diabetes or other pregnancy-related conditions that don’t heal up right away? I don’t think so.

Reproductive Choice Is About More Than Getting ‘Fat’—It’s About Bodily and Economic Autonomy (via brutereason)

….yeah…  All this.

My pregnancy with my son was totally uneventful but my pregnancy with my daughter was months of nausea, joint pain, back pain, rib pain, zero appetite which meant every meal was a forced meal, $85,000 worth of medical expenses associated with an early labor and a hospital stay, time off from work (obviously), a traumatic delivery that literally could have killed me, and complications with the epidural which resulted in migraines that kept me bedridden for weeks.  Pregnancy can also permanently change your eyesight, your body shape (which then requires a whole new wardrobe), your skin and your hair.

Let’s see… what else… oh!  The REALLY awesome stuff you can get from pregnancy: chronic constipation, incontinence, hemorrhoids, varicose veins, stretched abdominal muscles which then make hernias more likely, vaginal tearing, and postpartum depression!  Woo hoo!

So FUCK YES I’m pro-choice.  Making laws that force a woman to go through a pregnancy against her will doesn’t just make you an asshole, it makes you evil.  ~JJ

After looking into platonic solids earlier in my project, I began to look at other forms of polyhedra in order to form 3D structures relevant to my ideas. This above image displays Wenzel Jamnitzer’s few of many explorations of solid forms known as polyhedra, which are based on the five platonic solids. Polyhedra are beautiful 3-D geometrical figures that have fascinated philosophers, mathematicians and artists for millennia. Seeing as I have been working with very simple forms throughout the project, I thought it beneficial to explore more complex 3D shapes. From left to right are variations of the icosahedron and the dodecahedron each progression more complex than the last, as iterations have been added with more geometric components. I would like to visually explore some regular polyhedrons and perhaps build some sculpture ideas based on them.
