Lissy, 16, British. Obsessed with politics.
I'm not a cynic; I may post some pretty emo/cynical stuff, but I haven't quite given up on humanity yet (just the jerks who lay claim to leading us).
I'm incredibly prone to giving up quickly on stuff like this, the only exception being twitter, but this is working out okay so far (like, it's actually lasted > a year!).
I'm libertarian, and a socialist. No that isn't self-contradictory. I'm also slightly a politics geek (and one about a few other things as well), in case you can't tell.
There, that'll do.
Profile image is one of my family's pet dogs (Poppy), my bro took it. I'd direct you to his blog, but he changes his URL more often than I change this. Way more often.
Also this thing (sorry for lack of description, but I’m not sure how to do it or if anyone who follows me will benefit from it).
You all have got to stop calling each other sluts and whores. It just makes it ok for guys to call you sluts and whores.

Seriously, we have to stop doing this (and also the double standard about men and women who have sex).
Turns out going through my own tumblr’s archives is more interesting than urgent but huge and overwhelming homework. Ah well, just going to leave this quote here.
Jupiter is home to one of the most famous storms in the solar system, the Great Red Spot, which Earth observations place at a minimum of 180 (Earth) years in duration. Some evidence suggests that it may have been observed by humans as early as 1665. The magnitude of such a storm is almost unimaginable. At its narrowest point, the storm is still as wide as our entire planet and observations from the Voyager crafts indicate that the storm has 250 mph winds. The scale of mixing and turbulence around the storm, seen in photographs, is stunning and beautiful. (Photo credits: NASA/Voyager 1 and Michael Benson; submitted by oneheadtoanother)

…More specifically, when f is applied to each input sufficiently close to p, the result is an output value that is arbitrarily close to L. If the inputs "close" to p are taken to values that are very different, the limit is said to not exist.
The limit does not exist!!11! (okay, fine, this is a transparent ploy to get ALL the notes (all of them), happy?). The limit may not actually exist though, the Wiki goes into more detail obvs (hard to understand detail, but detail).
Martin Robbins: Why The Daily Mail is Evil (at The Pod Delusion’s 3rd birthday do) (by PodDelusion)
Can’t remember if I shared this on here before or not. Well, here it is (mostly for the benefit of someone who I know follows me on here and also reads the showbiz section of MailOnline).
There’s few things as offensive as desperate, grasping capitalism and that’s what the Mail now represents. If they were true to a sliver of their projected morals then articles about underage Kardashian’s cavorting in bikinis could not sit next to outrage at the BBC grooming children for penetration by Jimmy Savile.
Just leaving this here. (technically via <a @DickMandrake on twitter (broken html because I suck at it))
