"… the Earthship is the epitome of sustainable design and construction. No part of sustainable living has been ignored in this ingenious building."
Earthships can be built in any part of the world, in any climate and still provide
electricity, potable water, contained sewage treatment and sustainable food production. They are the most versatile and economical sustainable green building designs in the world. Earthship biotecture is the work of principal architect, Michael Reynolds.
People love to forget Michael Jackson’s blackness
people love to think that Michael Jackson forgot his blackness
People love to pretend to forget that Michael Jackson’s autopsy results showed that he DID have a skin disease and never “dyed” his skin.
very chilling topic on twitter right now.
i have my own reasons for #WhyIStayed, and looking through this hashtag, i can see so many women and men who were lost, just as i was.
i stayed because it was the first time i felt important to anyone. he “loved” me. when he said he would die if i left him, i thought it passionate. when he started showing up unannounced at my house, because my friends told him my brother’s friends were over, i thought the jealousy was endearing.
then he tried to kill himself when i left town for two days. he was convinced that i would find someone else, in a town where i knew no one. i came back home, and promised i would never leave.
the manipulation and emotional abuse became physical—but only once. he slammed me against a wall after i made a joke about dumping him once i started college. i hid the bruises from my family, for weeks. that was the moment i decided to get out, no matter what happened. for some people, it only takes one time. others need more than one. and some people never make it out alive.
it is not always easy to “just leave.” it is a blessing if you are able to leave, with no consequences.
