The next generation of scientists is already hard at work solving our biggest problems. Take Deepika Kurup, a 14-year-old high school student from Nashua, New Hampshire. After seeing children in India drinking dirty water from a stagnant pool, she decided, in her words, “to find a solution to the global water crisis.” And then she actually made some progress towards that goal, developing a solar-powered water purification system.
She is the future
Ever notice how it’s always brilliant teenagers making stuff that will actually solve the world’s worst problems, like what do adults even do?
THIS IS MY COUSIN!!!!!!
you know, black widow is a hard character to write and it’s not like they have a script just lying around-
well they can’t have had that for long-
it’s been such a long time though, i’m sure he doesn’t still want to do it-
well, it’s also not like there was ever another script in development before or anything-
but does she have any history of working well with Marvel and writing a great movie with a plot that seemed like a hard sell-
it’ll be hard to find a director though, that will have to bear the responsibility of directing the first Marvel female-led movie-
but is she a strong character who has been established in several other hugely successful/well-received movies and played by one of the most bankable actresses in the world-
then again, maybe she doesn’t even want to do a black widow movie-
wow, so what the fans have to say actually matters?! that’s great! so they might listen to us and-
but they do supposedly have movies planned up until 2028, we must at least be getting one black widow movie at some point-
This is a great, unique little tool I found by browsing for writing resources. It’s name speaks for itself: it’s a synonym finder.
The site is clean cut, has soothing colors, and to-the point results for any word you look up.
For example, when I look up the word “romance,” I get this:
Synonyms: romance, romanticism
Definition: an exciting and mysterious quality (as of a heroic time or adventure)
Definition: an essential and distinguishing attribute of something or someone
Usage: the quality of mercy is not strained—Shakespeare”
I had no idea what a “hypernym” is. Apparently it’s a word with a more general meaning that a more specific word fall under. Like, color is a hypernym for green.
On the right corner there’s a button to make graphs! So you can trace each synonym from it’s root word, and see how far the other synonyms connect in comparison to others.
I really like it, so I’m going to definitely bookmark it on my writing tools list.
I have given you glorious gifs of snakes yawning. You’re welcome.
I can’t stop aww-ing.
With some species, it’s not as cute
The fact that the inside of a black mamba’s mouth is ALL BLACK is both incredibly metal and incredibly terrifying.
But it is still cute.
