Samarina Style

Hi! :D I'm Sam, or Samarina, and I like drawing and making gifs. If you're at all interested, I have my photography and some drawings up at artistryandtea.tumblr.com :) Thanks for stopping by!

A high school robotics team used a 3D printer to build a functional robotic hand they then gave to a 4-year-old born without fingers. “I’m going to paint the nails pink,” she said.

AUTOMAILLLLLL

Did you fucking say a HIGH SCHOOL ROBOTICS TEAM HOLY SHIT

Map of the World by Natural Skin Color

i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening

actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d. 

THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.

Reblogging for the last comment.

second to last comment was dope, and very true.
but for real, is the reason behind skin color really not common knowledge? I mean….

there seems to be some assumption going on that darker skin is the adaptation.
in fact, darker skin is the ‘original flavor’. but evolution likes to get rid of traits that aren’t needed, especially if they cost energy, and maintaining a melanin shield is expensive. we also need sunlight to synthesize vitamin D, and melanin blocks that. so in latitudes that get less sunlight, folks evolved to produce less melanin.
vitamin D deficiency is actually a problem for dark-skinned people living in areas with long, dark winters, btw. take your vitamins!
light-colored eyes are also an adaptation to less sunlight. if real life was like science fiction, blue-eyed people could see in the dark. but reality’s not that cool.

so my family went to the tulip fields and my little sister didn’t have a good time at all

WHY IS THAT ONE FUCKING TULIP A DIFFERENT COLOR I WOULD BE UPSET TOO

it is the chosen one

it must be the main character in the anime

It got funnier when I realized just how many tulips are in this picture.

"Augustus is soooo pretentious!!!"

Ohmygod, no way?? It’s almost as if that’s exactly what John Green intended.

"Augustus Waters talked so much that he’d interrupt you at his own funeral. And he was pretentious: Sweet Jesus Christ, that kid never took a piss without pondering the abundant metaphorical resonances of human waste production."
