In addition to essentially inventing the computer, Alan Turing also broke the German Enigma Code during World War II which paved the way for the D-Day invasion. The man was a hyper-genius. I’ve read descriptions of his work by mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose. He’s been a hero of mine ever since.
The level of thought required to come up with the stuff he came up with is totally beyond my comprehension. I actually did not even know about his orientation until much later. He was prosecuted and ordered to undergo chemical castration. Soon thereafter, he committed suicide by eating a cyanide-laced apple.

The government forced him to take estrogen as a punishment (or “cure”?). He began to develop breasts and other side effects.
He committed suicide by biting into a cyanide laced apple. This is supposedly the inspiration for the name/logo of Apple computers.

Reblogging again because more people need to know about Turing dammit.

That awkward moment when you moonwalk into MJ


Fun Fact: That kid is actually Alfonso Ribeiro, AKA Carlton from Fresh Prince.

THIS WOULD ONLY HAPPEN TO CARLTON

There’s a Russian game show where contestants steal cars.  If they aren’t caught by the police after 35 minutes, they get to keep the car.

"rock is evil"

People are fucking idiots

Every single person I’ve met in a punk or rock band have been the nicest people I’ve met in my life.

Not to mention that bands like Pierce the Veil, All Time Low, and many other artists support the fuck out of cancer foundations.

And that Of Mice & Men visited a girl in the hospital who was dying of cancer more than once. And when she dies, Austin got a tattoo of her name.
