Natalie said her favorite scene in Rebel Without a Cause was one she shared with James Dean that was cut from the film.
“It was in the car. I was waiting for him and he comes up and we talk to each other. There was a section of the scene where I imply that I’ve sort of been around, that I’m not really pure.
I say to him, ‘Do you think that’s bad?’ And he says ‘No, I just think it’s lonely. It’s the loneliest time.’
I thought it was a wonderful line—right on the cutting room floor.”
Gillian Jacobs at the MTVu Fandom Awards during Comic-Con International 2014.
"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….
First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”
But here is what I think you should know.
You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.
You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.
You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).
You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.
In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.
In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”"

i just imagined this and cannot stop loling
Sent on the Sputnik 2, Laika was the first living creature to orbit the Earth. Since there was no technology to de-orbit, she died in space as intended. She died from overheating. Her reports weren’t made public until 2002 so up until then everyone was told that she was euthanised prior to oxygen depletion (the six day mark). Laika has been the topic of ethics and animal cruelty in science for many years. Laika paved the way for human space-flight.
and of course, there’s the comic that tore me to pieces when I had no idea that all of this was true:
The comic is just as heartbreaking. It’s an amazing read
