A reminder to all who haven’t heard: THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS WILL RIDE AGAIN…FUELED BY NETFLIX…IN 2016.
You read that right. Through Netflix’s acquisition of Scholastic, a 26-episode series will kick off in 2016, called The Magic School Bus 360°.
From the announcement via Mashable:

Netflix and Scholastic Media announced in a press statement that the new series will use CGI animation to feature a “modernized Ms. Frizzle" and an "inventive high-tech bus” — so it looks like the companies are not afraid to take chances and make mistakes (and probably get messy in the process). The very 21st-century show will also focus on modern tech innovations, including robotics and wearables.
“The all-new episodes also leverage advancements in animation, science and technology in a way that will delight a new generation of young viewers, and like its predecessor, will help kids around the world discover the magic and value of exploration and innovation,” a press statement reads.

Listen to the original Magic School Bus theme music
The Magic School Bus is the longest-running kids’ science series in history, first airing on PBS in 1994 and continuing in syndication for 18 consecutive years. It has even earned an Emmy Award. (Undoubtedly for Liz the Lizard’s acting.)
“Magic School Bus, the old version, is remarkably popular on Netflix,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer told The New York Times. “It teaches science in a way that transcends generations.”
Scholastic Media has not yet announced if the original Ms. Frizzle, Lily Tomlin, will return to voice the character.


And from a similar announcement via CNN:

“To do an animated show that has actually encouraged young people to pursue careers in the sciences or teaching makes us very, very happy.”
— Forte, President, Scholastic Media


2016. The Magic School Bus. The original ship of the imagination.

yes i would

you wouldnt eat yeast and raw potatoes, so why are you drinking it?

Whoever made this ad does not know who they are dealing with

You wouldn’t drink coagulated milk, why would you eat it?

This reminds me of those ads showing people in gasmasks spraying down crops that say “If it’s not safe to breathe, how can it be safe to eat?” Like, I can think of plenty of things that are safe to eat but not to breathe.
Cake, for instance.

Speak for yourself. I inhale cakes.

I would inhale a cake. I would eat 22 packs of sugar.

As we now know the Earth is round. Therefore, the challenge of any world map is to represent a round Earth on a flat surface. There are literally thousands of map projections and each has certain strengths and corresponding weaknesses, but the one you’re now picturing in your head most likely isn’t the area accurate representation.
The most widely used map today is the Mercator projection map. Mercator maps often appear in businesses, in libraries and in classrooms where geography is taught. This popularity is surprising, given the fact that the Mercator projection was first constructed in 1569. The more accurate representation of land mass is the Peters Projection Map:

Here’s a direct representation of the previously assumed factual map with the real flattened version:

The Peters Projection Map shows how Africa is larger than the combination of China, the US, Western Europe, India, Argentina, three Scandinavian countries and the British Isles. 
Mercator maps show Europe as being larger than South America. In reality, South America is almost twice the size of Europe. Alaska appears to be three times larger than Mexico, although Mexico actually is larger than Alaska. Greenland looks roughly the same size as Africa, when, in fact, Africa is fourteen times larger than Greenland. Africa also looks considerably smaller than Russia, even though Africa is actually 33% larger.
To see how big the western countries have become, it’s hard to see how this has nothing to do with suppression; to make us believe they are ‘bigger’ and ‘on top’. A simple change in the look of a map can cause a reconsideration of your fixed ideas about a place.
Bonus:
The world turned upside down.
Who says North is up?

This is important.

like, i guess this isnt even a particularly “”“adult”“” blog but theres something very unnerving about clicking through to a new follower and seeing “age: 14” on the sidebar. i feel like a chaperon at a highschool dance. leave some room for jesus

iridessence:

sometimes when I feel alone I like to think about how not alone I am because of all the millions of bacteria and other micro organisms on my body and some of them are even doing cool shit to help me keep my body working

Sometimes, I just feel like I need to tell some of my abuse stories. It doesn’t matter if nobody is listening; I just need to tell them. Right now is one of those moments.

Winnie Harlow is the new face of Desigual. 

I liked ASOUE from the moment I discovered them, but I didn’t fall in love until Slippery Slope when poor Sunny is crying because she’s just been kidnapped and Esme is pinching her. 

And douchebag Count Olaf tells her to stop crying or he’ll give her something to cry about. 

And our wonderful narrator points out something that I’ve thought since I was a young one and my parents used that on me: if somebody is crying, then they already have a reason to cry, and the last thing they need is another reason, thank you very much. 

THAT is the exact moment that I fell in love.

Do you think Ravenclaws ever argue with the door to their tower? I bet they do. Like, the eagle says their answer to the riddle is wrong, but they argue the point and the eagle eventually comes around to their side and lets them in. 

At least once the Eagle has opened to a first year shouting “I’M ELEVEN AND I DIDN’T SLEEP LAST NIGHT, HOW THE HELL’M’I S’POSED TO ANSWER THAT?”

sometimes I wonder what if some RavenClaws weren’t riddle savvy? Im just imagining a bunch of ravenclaws finding a corner of the castle and making it completely theirs adding the things that they used to get into ravenclaw. Art lines the walls along with quotes and the occasional music pieces and lyrics, The middle of the room has hand crafted furniture and musical instruments while in the various corners of the room there are potion experiments and new spells and books everywhere and no one really caring they aren’t in the dorm and since most of them are dorks they call themselves the Lonewolves and there color is purple. I just really love this idea.

Filch is perpetually catching them and screaming about “stUDENTS OUT OF BED” and everyone from Flitwick to Dumbledore is just like “Shut the fuck up, Argus.”
