And here’s the first of my storyline translations! This one is for the Lambdadelta/Chiester 410 route: it’s a very lighthearted story that centers around Lambda planning to shoot Bern with a cupid’s arrow.
“Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery. […] Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that Charles Darwin discovered evolution, and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. And no one ever wonders how we know.”—Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery. (via alliterate)

People Who Want to Do Commentary On How This Attitude is Assy At the Very Least and Misogynist at the Very Worst and Are Annoyed With Tumblr's Chat Format:AAAAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH. You play videogames, whether they be Farmville or Modern Warfare or Final Fantasy or all of the above, and identify as a gamer, you are a gamer. If you play videogames and identify as female, congrats you are a girl gamer. There are male gamers who are as every bit as obnoxious as your "gamer girl" strawman given in the first example. Wow this format is really horrible, I can't actually link anything. For what it's worth, I refer you to Susana Polo's article "On the 'Fake' Geek Girl" over at the Mary Sue blog - http://www.themarysue.com/on-the-fake-geek-girl/
The invention of the wheel was so challenging that it probably happened only once, in one place. However, from that place, it seems to have spread so rapidly across Eurasia and the Middle East that experts cannot say for sure where it originated. The earliest images of wheeled carts have been excavated in Poland and elsewhere in the Eurasian steppes, and this region is overtaking Mesopotamia (present-day Iraq) as the wheel’s most likely birthplace. According to Asko Parpola, an Indologist at the University of Helsinki in Finland, there are linguistic reasons to believe the wheel originated with the Tripolye people of modern-day Ukraine. That is, the words associated with wheels and wagons derive from the language of that culture.
