toska [tohs-kah]
(noun) An untranslatable, Russian word – Vladimir Nabokov describes it best: “No single word in English renders all the shades of toska. At its deepest and most painful, it is a sensation of great spiritual anguish, often without any specific cause. At less morbid levels it is a dull ache of the soul, a longing with nothing to long for, a sick pining, a vague restlessness, mental throes, yearning. In particular cases it may be the desire for somebody or something specific, nostalgia, love-sickness. At the lowest level it grades into ennui, boredom.”  (via les-espaces-et-les-sentiments)

actually, no. don’t wait a minute. i will accept this. i would just clear the bullshit-factory from my mind, get sussed out, constantly have my shit together in every situation, and charged my entire being with creativity and awareness.
i am so down with this~

Yes please.

No more depression. No more anxiety. No more losing my temper at stupid shit. No more crippling fear for the future… None of it. 

You guys don’t think big enough.
Feeling motivated and pumped 24/7. Conscious access to your pattern-matching faculties and muscle and generic memory. Splinter your hemispheres and delegate different tasks for improved multi-tasking. Whatever it is you’re doing, from rocket science to playing Starcraft for a living, you’d be dominating the field in a decade.

not big enough.with 100% brain power you can learn anything much faster than anyone on earth and master it at a record pace, you could out program entire companies, out smart geniuses, never sleep as you can rest your brain in phases become the all powerful being.

So I have joined the ranks of the ice watered…

However, while it is always great to see a worthy cause getting attention, as ALS is a terrible disease, like my mother I’m going to be donating both to ALS, through the ALS Society of Canada, at als.ca, and also to One Drop, at onedrop.org, which is a charity that “strives to ensure that water is accessible to all, today and forever”.

I encourage all of you to go out and find a charity that works for you, and to do a bit of research on how they spend there money. For example, if you take a look at the ALS society of Canada’s charity details page on charityintelligence.ca, you can see that about two thirds of their money is spent on grants and programs, that most of the rest is spent on fund raising, and that none of the staff are paid more then 200k a year, so that seems pretty legitimate.

I would also like to recommend The Nature Conservancy of Canada and the Canadian Red Cross as they are very highly rated as I understand it, if you need suggestions.

You can also always go to the Canada Revenue Agency to check a charities status, and see a breakdown of their finances in cute little pie graphs. It is quick, and as easy as typing in a search box at www.cra-arc.gc.ca/chrts-gvng/lstngs/menu-eng.html.

Also, I’d like to remind everyone that if you have some spare time then it is always good to get directly involved, and that there are always charities out there looking for people, even if it is only the one time for a couple of hours. Every little bit helps.

Notice only 20 shades of gray

It’s been proven that women actually have an acute ability to pick up subtle differences in colors

In response to that last comment^^

Yes. It comes from the Hunter-Gatherer days.

Women were the gatherers. They had to be able to discern between the different shades of colors to know which plants were poisonous and which were not.

Men were out hunting, so they didn’t have to worry about that.

Which is why women see “Blood orange” and “crimson” and “scarlet” etc while guys just see “red”.

I’M A COLORBLIND WOMAN HALF OF THESE LOOK THE SAME AS THE ONE NEXT TO THEM THIS IS INFURIATING 

The hunter-gatherer explanation is total bullshit FYI. You think gatherers (women or not) relied on close color differentiation over the shape of the leaves/flowers/etc.? You think hunters (men or not) didn’t rely on close color differentiation to spot camouflaged prey?

It’s not even that men aren’t always able to tell that two similar colors are different in shade or hue. It’s just that men, unlike women, generally aren’t exposed to thousands of beauty products every year/month/week, each with a UNIQUE color name.

How many times have you seen a man ridiculed for wearing colors or shades that don’t match well enough? How many men have had to stand in an aisle at Walmart and make a conscious choice between orchid and amethyst? 

If you think for a second that women being able to differentiate and assign names to varying hues is due to some pseudoscientific ancient human adaptation bullshit and not due to the fact that women have to survive being bogged down daily and from childhood by ridiculous beauty standards and expectations and products, then I will personally papercut your shins until you can tell me whether your sexist blood is crimson, scarlet, or ruby. 

Not to disagree with the last post completely, as I believe that the biggest reason for the difference is exposure, as they said, and not to reinforce the stereotype of hunter man and gatherer woman, which was not likely always so distinct but I feel it should be pointed out that colour blindness might not actually be such a bad thing for a hunter. There are reasons why it might actually help to see through camouflage, since camouflage is fundamentally a colour based disguise. I mean, if colour vision were important for hunters, canines and felines would probably not be colour blind by human standards. Further, primates probably did evolve 3 colour vision (‘normal’ colour vision) for foraging fruit. To quote:

Human dichromats have especial difficulty in detecting coloured fruit against dappled foliage that varies randomly in luminosity; it is suggested that yellow and orange tropical fruits have co-evolved with the trichromatic colour vision of Old World monkeys.

Thus, if it were true that men did all the hunting, and women did all the gathering, then the evolutionary pressure probably would be towards men being colour blind, and women having normal colour vision.

That said, most men and most women have ‘normal’ colour vision, with little if any proven difference between the two, so yes, the reason men tend to lump colours together, and women tend to know more names for different shades is probably social.

But let’s not forget that men are also 16 times more likely to be colour blind in some way than women. And that tetrachromacy (super colour vision) may exist, and may even be not exceptionally rare. If it does exist, this super colour vision would present either mostly or exclusively in women. This could perhaps explain some of the myth, or at least some of the social forces at play.

PS Also I found this one study that suggested female peripheral colour vision is slightly superior to men’s, and though not particularly relevant, I thought it was interesting and thought I’d share.

There are some crazies talking about a world conspiracy against Russia and China at the Skytrain station. Mostly they are just angrily stringing together buzz words like neo-nazi and alqaeda. I pointed out a bunch of holes in their arguments and now they won’t talk to me. :(
