Lavoisier is having none of your shit.

Heeeey so fun fact: the woman in that painting is Lavoisier’s wife, Marie-Anne Pierrette Paulze, who not only acted as Lavoisier’s lab assistant but also translated English and Latin texts into French so he could read them. But she didn’t just translate, she pointed out errors in the chemistry in some of the texts. Her observations of these errors convinced Lavoisier to study combustion, which led to his discovery of oxygen. She was also critical to the publication of Lavoisier’s Elementary Treatise on Chemistry in 1789. She kept strict records of every experiment they conducted together and drew detailed diagrams of all their equipment. She also threw amazing parties and invited all the brightest minds in science so her husband could pick their brains. After Lavoisier was guillotined she secured all of his notebooks and equipment for posterity.
In short: NOBODY KICKS MADAME LAVOISIER OUT OF THE LAB.

Also, a side note: My historian husband-to-be pointed some things out to me about this painting. Notice that Madame Lavoisier is looking at the viewer, and all the light is on her, while Lavoisier himself is physically smaller than her, in shadow, and looking up to her in reverence. This isn’t a candid photograph- all of these choices are deliberate. The painting isn’t of Lavoisier- Madame Lavoisier is meant to be the central subject. 
I can just imagine Lavoisier telling all his colleagues that his wife is really the one with all the clever ideas, and them patting him on the back and telling him he’s sweet for saying so.

"No homo" is one of the dumbest things I have ever heard come out of the mouth of a human. This is my second favorite way to reply - the first, bloody retribution.

Like and comment on Tapastic!

This is perfect in every way.

ALL HOMO.

Cement Eclipses. Chiapas, Mexico. 2013Sculpture, Street Art

Isaac Cordal was in Mexico last year where he could give some new perspectives to his project Cement Eclipses. The Spanish artists so get inspired by the local folklore to stage his miniature sculptures in the streets of cities and villages located in Chiapas. Next to this, he also collaborated with young students of the Escuelita Zapatista. Together, they collected clay from the paths of the country and shaped some figurine then leaved to their own destiny. Here after, you’ll find pictures taken back from his South-American trip by Isaac. Lastly, let’s remind a book bringing together photographs of the installations he made last year in Nantes has been published. You’ll find it on Lalibrairie.com. - See more at: http://www.en.ozartsetc.com/2014/03/05/isaac-cordal-cement-eclipses-chiapas-mexico-2013/#sthash.meJGfFlI.dpuf

…it’s almost like the right wing hates women or something

The religious right on getting pregnant:
- It’s a punishment for women who have consensual sex (cf. above)
- It’s God’s reward for women who get raped (cf. R. Mourdock)

*indescribable sounds of rage*

Color palette tutorial time!

This is by no means the Only Way To Pick Colors—it’s just a relatively-simple method I use sometimes.  I’ve found it works pretty well, almost regardless of what colors you pick—as long as you can keep them organized by those light/dark warm/cool categories, and make sure one category takes up a significantly higher proportion of page space, it usually turns out pretty good!
