Well, that was easy.

You just learned 8 Chinese words in the cutest way possible.

Real Fact:  These are the character meanings (which are the same across dialects and languages- I believe in Japanese kanji they have the same meaning)

In Mandarin Chinese they are (when spoken): Kou (mouth), mu (tree), huo (fire), men (door), yue (moon), ri (sun), shan (mountain), ren (person)

These are also all radicals (kind of like the building blocks) of other Chinese characters, as well as being characters (as you see above) in their own right.  Therefore, a person reading Chinese can determine some of the meaning behind the word’s character(s) by looking at their radicals.  

See, learning to read Chinese isn’t as difficult as it first seems.  

Even though it takes a long ass time to master.  (So so sooooo long).

Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

Best lesson from a Disney movie

This is an underrated movie

This is a grossly underrated movie.

Can I take a minute to rant? Good. Cuz I’m gonna.

I FLOVE this movie. And I HATE all the stupid hatred it gets. For a long time the buzz was “finally a black princess yay!” and now everyone is like “Fuck this movie, first black princess and she spends the whole movie a frog.”

You know what? Fuck that. Because Ariel spent a good majority of the movie not talking. Mulan spent the majority of the move pretending to be a man. Aurora and Snow White? Asleep (Hardly in the movie at all). They’re all just plot devices, not designed to take away from the traits of the women. 

And you know what else? Unlike some of the other princesses, Tiana is in control of her destiny every step of the way. When she turns into the frog does she lose hope and need rescuing? Hell naw. She busts Naveen over the head and gets the job done. She is consistently responsible and capable even after having her dreams crushed and turning into a freaking frog. 

So don’t tell me that Tiana is “less than” just because she gets turned into a frog. She’s still one of the most hardworking, badass, and capable chicks in animated history and I love her like crazy cakes. 

the end.
