"We now know that 24 hours without sleep, or a week of sleeping four or five hours a night induces an impairment equivalent to a blood alcohol level of .1 percent. We would never say, ‘This person is a great worker! He’s drunk all the time!’ yet we continue to celebrate people who sacrifice sleep for work."

Insights from the doctor who coaches athletes on sleep. Pair with the science of what actually happens while you sleep and how it affects your every waking hour.

aah oh wow this is great
my best friend in middle school wasn’t allowed to wash her hair with anything other than this weird lemon juice concoction because her terrifying mother objected to “chemicals”, I spent a lot of time being like BUT WE’RE MADE OF CHEMICALS at her, to no avail



This is so great. Chemicals are not inherently bad, people.



basically obligated to reblog this



I bought dish detergent once that advertised itself as containing “no chemicals!” I couldn’t not buy dish detergent made of ~*MAGIC*~.



There’s a brand of detergents that promises ‘no nasty chemicals’. AUGH.

as a chemist, this is relevant to me

chemicals are our friends!

My boss is always banging on about how you shouldn’t put chemicals in your body. Gods…

I gotta say, I have a lot of respect for Rob Portman doing this — I wish him all the best. (It) took my parents a long time after I came out to them for them to be okay with it, and now they couldn’t be more supportive. So I get the sort of two-year delay.

But two things. First of all… in the interim, he thought he was going to be (Mitt Romney’s) vice president. And when he got asked about employment and non-discrimination and gay people, he already had a gay son who was out to him at that point, and he would not say that he was for it. So he waited until he was clear of the vice presidential thing. Okay.

But now, more importantly, now I want to arrange for every Republican who signed onto the Paul Ryan budget to wake up with a poor son, ‘cause then you won’t wanna cut food stamps. You won’t wanna cut child school nutrition.
