Catalonia’s President Artur Mas is to comment on the Scottish referendum result as he prepares his region for a similar vote in November.
Today, we know the result of the Scottish referendum, but what we don’t yet know is the outcome.
David Cameron’s words at Downing Street this morning were a promise of constitutional change for not just Scotland but the rest of the UK, but after nearly 100 years without significant political…
The results of the Scottish independence referendum are in, and the answer is no. The referendum asked only a single question: Should Scotland become an independent country? Scottish voters have…
BREAKING: SCOTLAND VOTED “NO” - What is absolutely MINDBLOWING from the US perspective is the voter turnout in Scotland… estimated to be 84% !!! The United States would be Blue, form Coast to Coast, and Congress would have a Democratic majority if 84% Americans would vote on November 4th.
Congratulations to the people of Scotland on an outstanding turnout, and for showing the world what participatory democracy is all about.
Francis is another short horror film about a daring 17 year old girl, who finds herself alone in the middle of a lake. Trouble starts to brew. We find ourselves with more questions than answers at the end. (Watch it here) (Masterpost of creepy short films)
As someone who loves horror, animation and games, I would never forgive myself if I didn’t share that great masterpost
Do you believe in the existence of extraterrestrials? // Logically, I would have to say no.
Jerusalem-based industrial designer Naomi Kizhner created a series of sci-fi jewelry than harvest kinetic energy from a human’s body and turns it into electricity. Called “Energy Addicts”. Each spike is inserted into a vein; the blood stream spins the wheel and creates movement. The jewelry is made from gold and 3D-printed biopolymer. Each piece contains sharp stings that neatly pierce the skin and serve as bio energy harvesting devices. The energy is generated from the body’s subconscious movements, such as blood flow or blinks of an eye. Kizhner created several designs to be worn on different body parts and to draw energy from specific physiological functions. Via Reddit

This city is made of wolves and gods,
nymphs with hacked off hair and kohled-up eyes,
wide-eyed prophets slurring over a bottle of Jack.
Ares dons leather as he prowls outside the club.
Mottled bruising spills into the half-crescent below
his eye – a bar fight left him bloody, laughing.
Old Lucifer and his host of rebel angels smoke Marlboros
in the alleyway. Abaddon spent the night in a holding cell
last weekend, head bowed and teeth gleaming.
This time, they keep to the shadows. This generation,
these new party monsters slicked with glitter and sweat,
birthed from smoke machines and sticky dancefloors —
well, the prince of darkness knows better than to meddle.
Here, we are the wolves. Divinity had the sense
not to touch us. Instead, we bare our teeth, clutch bottles
like lifelines, soak up the messy beats, hide in the
darkness between the strobe lighting.
In battered neon lights our names are written,
like stars, but less.
(noun) This wonderful, untranslatable German word describes the feeling of homesickness for a far away land, a place you have never visited. Do not confuse this with the english word, wanderlust; Fernweh is much more profound, it is the feeling of an unsatisfied urge to escape and discover new places, almost a sort of sadness. You miss a place you have never experienced, as opposed to lusting over it or desiring it like wanderlust. You are seeking freedom and self-discovery, but not a particular home.
