[Tina Fey] had gifted [Amy Poehler] a portrait of her sons Archie and Abel made out of Legos as a wrap gift for completing “The Nest” over the summer.
"I cried because I knew that my gift to Tina was a heart-shaped pillow with the word ‘butts’ on it," she said."

A peanut in the middle of our galaxy
It turns out that the center of our galaxy resembles the shape of a peanut according to new research. UCLA’s R. Michael Rich is looking to map this dense inner region of the Milky Way. It can be thought of as a big metropolitan area with “stellar suburbs” of stars at the edges that can be anywhere from a few million years old to some 12 billion years old.
The way he plans to do this is to use images taken from a 500 megapixel camera - To put that in another way, an image taken from this camera would need 250 computer screens to view. So a supercomputer will then parse through that data and reduce the images for viewing.
Rich hopes to use this study to better understand how our galaxy has formed and evolved over time.
"Sometimes our light goes out, but is blown again into instant flame by an encounter with another human being."

I found these gifs I made a while back for a site that’s not running anymore, so I thought I’d post them here. It’s a description of psychiatric symptoms and states of mind using a pink box and some other stuff.
Oh my god. This kitten is named LeVar Purrton.
