It's time for another speedlinking post, in which I share some cool stuff I've found on the internet during the past year. Allonsy!
Someone managed to capture photos of Paul Bettany (aka Vision) on set filming The Avengers: Infinity War, and I am about to die I am so afraid what's going to happennnnnnnnnn?!???!?!! (Yeah, those photos aren't that exciting, but they remind me of the fact that there's a movie. With Vision. And Wanda. And it's probably going to be devastating. QUICK, THINK HAPPY THOUGHTS!)
As y'all know, I've been spending a lot of time focused on medical stuff lately, trying to get my wacko chronic illness situation under control. As such, I'd like to recommend Patients Like Me, a website for people with chronic illnesses where you can track your symptoms, labs, medications, etc. and communicate with others who are in the same situation. It's been super helpful for me lately. If you're dealing with chronic illness, check it out! On the social justice side of things, here's a really interesting article from Cracked about sexism in medicine. *Mild adult content warning*
Speaking of social justice, here are a few pictures with stats about rape and violence against women, and one about the wage gap. For a more positive look at feminism, here's an article about how science shows that most prehistoric cave artists may actually have been women! (Which corresponds well with the theory proposed by both Catherine McCoid and Leroy McDermott that the famous "Venus" figurines were created by women, not men, as self portraits and possibly for the purposes of tracking their own pregnancies.)
In other science news, some of you have probably heard about how NASA found a nearby(ish) solar system with multiple planets that have the potential to support life. It's pretty cool news, and I love this artist's rendition of what each of these planets looks like.
Also, because it's fun, check out the music of a unicorn! In art news, I'd also like to recommend the poetry of Lucille Clifton, because it's awesome stuff. She's now officially one of my fave poets, alongside E.E. Cummings.
I've added six more videos to my speedlinking playlist, so you can check them out here, starting at number eighteen. *Language warning*
That's it for today! I'll see you again on Tuesday.
