oh my godddddd there is a new swedish reality tv show where they are tracking down internet trolls and confronting them about the death threats they’ve sent to people, since it’s actually illegal.

watching them try to explain how it’s not them is the best entertainment i’ve ever seen.

this episode ended with them fining him 5000 SEK to be paid to the victim!

guess what America should do

What I mean when I say “I can’t do that”- Anxiety Version:

  • I am unable to do that
  • I am too stressed out to do that
  • I cannot face the humiliation of attempting to do that
  • My body will physically not allow me to do that
  • I am on the verge of a panic attack
  • I cannot do that

What people hear:

  • I am unwilling to do that
  • I am just shy
  • I am overreacting
  • I am lazy
  • I need to get more experience in social situation to help my anxiety
  • I need a push
  • I don’t want to do that

Found! First Earth-Size Planet That Could Potentially Support Life
Astronomers have discovered a planet about the size of Earth,
orbiting its star in the zone where oceans of liquid water would be possible.

From Space.com

A study of the newly-found planet indicates it could have an Earth-like atmosphere and water at its surface. The planet Kepler-186f is the fifth planet of the star Kepler-186, 490 light-years away.

The planet has 1.11 times the Earth’s mass. Its radius is 1.1 times that of Earth. Kepler-186f orbits at 32.5 million miles (52.4 million kilometers) from its parent star. Its year is 130 Earth days. 

The planet orbits Kepler-186, an M-type dwarf star less than half as massive as the sun. Because the star is cooler than the sun, the planet receives solar energy less intense than that received by Mars in our solar system, despite the fact that Kepler-186f orbits much closer to its star.

I can’t put into words how much I love infographics. 

Exciting! It would need an equivalent of Jupiter if we were to live there though - Jupiter soaks up a shit-ton of asteroids that would otherwise impact the planets closer to the sun, including Earth, potentially, you know, wiping out all life as we know it.

Also, does it have a moon like ours? Needs one of them and all. Otherwise axial wobbles are too destructive. But our moon has an unusual size-and-closeness ratio that doesn’t tend to come up much. Perhaps we could make a new one. I understand cheese is an appropriate material.

Elanor is quite right. The world may very well be inhabitable, but for how long without the stabilizing influence of a large, close-orbiting moon and the protection of a huge gas giant like Jupiter?

Also, it’s 490 light years away. So we’re seeing it as it was 490 years ago. Now granted, not a lot usually happens to a planet in 490 years, but if you got an asteroid strike or massive volcanic activity during that time, we could get there and find out it’s no longer the planet we thought it was. But I wouldn’t worry about it too much. It’s gonna be a long time before we have the technology to get that far.
