"You’re 6’4", 240-pound Marine, and you’re injured, and you need a Marine next to you to carry you back to safety, and the Marine next to you is a 5’4" woman who weighs 115 pounds,"

No problem.

in before “well most women can’t do that” because NEWS FLASH most men can’t either, that’s why it’s a highly specialized career that requires a lot of devoted training

One of my former coworkers was a very slim girl only a tad taller than me, and she was training to be a fireman, and she could lift the biggest dude on my crew like this who was around 6’5 and super bulky.One time she picked him up and ran around the crew room with him for about 5 minutes before letting him down.

Even though I haven’t exercised in over a year—if you count DDR—and I’m incredibly petite (5’0”, 100 lbs), I can carry most guys. If they’re under 200 lbs, I can run with them on my back for 5 blocks, but I can walk for a mile. Once they’re about 250, I can only walk about a block or two before my spine feels like it’s about to break. If I were in a survival situation and their life depended on it, I could go on much further, until my legs gave out.
It’s why I hate the bullshit that women are inherently weak. Nah, man. Nah.

More power to you all because I can barely lift my five year old nephew without hating myself ten minutes later….

People have done studies of the military that demonstrate that with the same training for the same length of time, both men and women can achieve the same fitness level. They can carry as much, run as far, shoot as well, you name it. The idea that women are weaker than men is a total myth, and one that that the patriarchy is desperate to make us believe. (I wish I could give you a source for this but it’s been a while since I read it)

Here’s how Etsy’s CEO put it in an op-ed that ran in Wired this morning, announcing his company’s participation in the September 10 Internet Slowdown:"To be sure, the cable and phone companies are counting on our apathy. After all, businesses are often more conservative than activists and tend to not want to jump alone. But not this time. Our employees care, our communities are invested, and after months of progress, we now have a real shot at victory."

Think of a hobby, any hobby. No matter how strange, obscure or humdrum it is, chances are good there’s a club for people who share that interest or activity in common. Swiss photographers Ursula Sprecher and Andy Cortellini spent seven years traveling around Switzerland visiting sixty different clubs to create an awesomely fascinating series of staged portraits entitled Hobby Buddies.

Sprecher and Cortellini say that the images are dedicated to the “joy of pursuing a common cause or shared idea.”

For Sprecher, who had long had the idea for the project, working with the hobbyists was mutually inspiring. “We always felt like guests in their passion, and they were guests in our work,” she said. “Some people do something and spend time on their interest for many years. It’s very serious to work on something for that long.”

Here you see the Poodle Club, Star Wars Club, Hat, Piper-Smokers Club, Dintefisch Diving Club, Association of Scientific Preparators, Majorette & Show Dance Troupe, Butchers’ Friends Society, the Santa Claus Group, and the St. Brandan Scout Section.

HAVE YOU HEARD Sara Bareilles’s cover of Sia’s Chandelier, because it is goddamn AMAZING.

Renown Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman (previously featured here) continues to make the world a more whimsical place with his extraordinary large-scale animal sculptures. His latest piece is this awesome floating hippopotamus, a follow-up to his famous giant Rubber Duck (that’s still on a floating world tour). Called the HippopoThames, the gargantuan wooden creature is in London for Totally Thames, a month-long celebration of the River Thames all along its 42 London miles, hosted by the Thames Festival Trust.

Hofman’s giant hippo is made of overlapping wood panels constructed on a river barge and measures 21 meter (~69 feet) long. He’s got huge painted eyes, large (yet adorable) pink ears and nostrils and seems perfectly content to float in the river.

‘The purpose of setting my sculptures in the public domain has always been to give members of the public a break from their daily routines, to inspire conversation and to cause astonishment.’ Hofman describes ‘I hope the location of my sculpture will inspire passers-by to engage with its surrounding area of Nine Elms on the South Bank, and to discover the various other events within the Totally Thames programme celebrating London’s river.’

The HippopoThames is currently floating on the South Bank of the river in the Nine Elms district, where he’ll be until September 28, 2014.

that’s true. but the same can be said of a pencil. it’s all in the choice not to lol.

but it’s a pretty willow leaf! steel can be delicate. it’s not always for stabbing.

duckayeh replied to your photoset “I blacksmith. I made a fancy bottle opener with a leaf on the end!…”

cool. you can also use it to stab people.
