The Physics of the Warped Wall

"As far a technique goes, there are some very good tutorials, strategies and pieces of advice out there for conquering this obstacle from people who’ve actually done it, but they’re often filled with useless platitudes like this:

“Yeah, basically, it’s all about commitment. If you go in there 100% commitment and with confidence, you’re gonna make it.”

No, you won’t, not unless you accidently happen to discover the correct physiological technique — the techniques that make the best use of the human body constrained by the laws of physics — through the sheer accident that comes with relying on commitment and confidence alone. Let’s take you through the physics of what you need to do to make this happen!”

How would you defeat the warped wall on Ninja Warrior? If you use physics, total victory is all but guaranteed!

THIS IS WHAT MY SISTER SENT ME

When Brazilian graphic designer Carol Rossetti began posting colorful illustrations of women and their stories to Facebook, she had no idea how popular they would become. 

Thousands of shares throughout the world later, the appeal of Rosetti’s work is clear. Much like the street art phenomenon Stop Telling Women To Smile, Rossetti’s empowering images are the kind you want to post on every street corner, as both a reminder and affirmation of women’s bodily autonomy. 

"It has always bothered me, the world’s attempts to control women’s bodies, behavior and identities," Rossetti told Mic via email. "It’s a kind of oppression so deeply entangled in our culture that most people don’t even see it’s there, and how cruel it can be."

Rossetti’s illustrations touch upon an impressive range of intersectional topics, including LGBTQ identity, body image, ageism, racism, sexism and ableism. Some characters are based on the experiences of friends or her own life, while others draw inspiration from the stories many women have shared across the Internet. 

"I see those situations I portray every day," she wrote. "I lived some of them myself."

Despite quickly garnering thousands of enthusiastic comments and shares on Facebook, the project started as something personal — so personal, in fact, that Rossetti is still figuring out what to call it. For now, the images reside in albums simply titled “WOMEN in english!" or "Mujeres en español!" which is fitting: Rossetti’s illustrations encompass a vast set of experiences that together create a powerful picture of both women’s identity and oppression.

One of the most interesting aspects of the project is the way it has struck such a global chord. Rossetti originally wrote the text of the illustrations in Portuguese, and then worked with an Australian woman to translate them to English. A group of Israeli feminists also took it upon themselves to create versions of the illustrations in Hebrew. Now, more people have reached out to Rossetti through Facebook and offered to translate her work into even more languages. Next on the docket? Spanish, Russian, German and Lithuanian.

It’s an inspiring show of global solidarity, but the message of Rossetti’s art is clear in any language. Above all, her images celebrate being true to oneself, respecting others and questioning what society tells us is acceptable or beautiful.

"I can’t change the world by myself," Rossetti said. "But I’d love to know that my work made people review their privileges and be more open to understanding and respecting one another."

The Best Birth Control In The World Is For Men by Jon Clinkenbeard

If I were going to describe the perfect contraceptive, it would go something like this: no babies, no latex, no daily pill to remember, no hormones to interfere with mood or sex drive, no negative health effects whatsoever, and 100 percent effectiveness. The funny thing is, something like that currently exists.

The procedure called RISUG in India (reversible inhibition of sperm under guidance) takes about 15 minutes with a doctor, is effective after about three days, and lasts for 10 or more years…

Oh, and when you do decide you want those babies, it only takes one other injection of water and baking soda to flush out the gel, and within two to three months, you’ve got all your healthy sperm again.

The trouble is, most people don’t even know this exists. And if men only need one super-cheap shot every 10 years or more, that’s not something that gets big pharmaceutical companies all fired up, because they’ll make zero money on it (even if it might have the side benefit of, you know, destroying HIV).

DUDE

can this replace the normal contraception methods we have pls

I’m just going to keep reblogging this until people start paying attention, because people aren’t.

me, too.

I’ve actually donated to this cause, the recent studies on apes have run into some troubles after the sperm extraction from the baboons using electro stimulation was found to dislodge the contraceptive. They are reevaluating the sperm collection method and continuing with the study soon, but it takes allot to get this kind of medicine licensed in America, so don’t expect it for at least a year or two.

If this is something your interested in making reality go to their site and donate.

Admit it, the first thing we’d all do if we woke up gender swapped is masturbate.

I would pay money and make popcorn just to watch some of the men I’ve known in my life masturbate after being genderswapped. Not for any erotic reasons, just to see if they could even figure out how.

"wait, so which hole- what the hell- how do- *breaks down crying*"

"OW THAT DOESN’T FEEL GOOD!"

"You think?" *Eats popcorn*
