#Repost from @definitelychas with @repostapp —- Didn’t get the results I wanted today, but learned a lot from my opponents, I’m learning a lot about myself, and gotta put more hours in. But really proud of my teammates and bros @whatislloyds and Kris, who got double silver and double gold, respectively. Among the several submissions they hit, they both hit a technique (“jacaré” choke with the gi) that they just learned this week @njunitedmma. Most importantly they played their game and battled their hearts out. Stoked and happy for these guys! #ontothenext #allaboutthejourney #submissiononly #submissionisthemission #njunitedmma #jiujitsu
Took silver in gi and nogi to an admirable practitioner of #bjj. Such a dope experience with my homies @definitelychas and Kris. I’ve got so much gratitude for @njunitedmma. Everything I learned this past week in side control are what gave me these medals. Literally. So many thanks! Yeah, that’s it. Expect a few more pics, guys.. Haha.
Right now, 500 light years away from Earth, there’s a planet that looks a lot like our own. It is bathed in dim orangeish light, which at high noon is only as bright as the golden hour before sunset back home.
NASA scientists are calling the planet Kepler-186f, and it’s unlike anything they’ve found. The big news: Kepler-186f is the closest relative to the Earth that researchers have discovered.
It’s the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star—the sweet spot between too-hot Mercury-like planets and too-cold Neptunes— and it is likely to give scientists their first real opportunity to seek life elsewhere in the universe. “It’s no longer in the realm of science fiction,” said Elisa Quintana, a researcher at the SETI Institute.
But if there is indeed life on Kepler-186f, it may not look like what we have here. Given the redder wavelengths of light on the planet, vegetation there would sprout in hues of yellow and orange instead of green.

#latergram to last night. Caught some crabs. Built a fire. Boiled the aforementioned crabs over the aforementioned fire. Hahah. ‘Twas a good night with some good friends. @jaaayoh @ms.laurenlo @mc_maybe @definitelychas @trebronreyes
What fucks me up about the Darren Wilson fundraiser is that he hasn’t been charged with a crime. He doesn’t have to hire a lawyer. He’s on paid leave, so he’s not losing wages. This is not covering his expenses, because he…
