Thoughtful underwear with hidden powers. For every pair purchased you fund 7 pads to a girl in need.
OH SHIT YOU GUYS THIS COMPANY IS MAKING UNDERWEAR THAT IS STAIN RESISTANT, ANTIMICROBIAL, AND WILL ABSORB UP TO 6 TEASPOONS OF LIQUID BUT STILL LOOKS FUCKING SEXY
AND DID I MENTION THIS PART:
For every pair of THINX you buy, you help one girl in the developing world stay in school by providing her with seven washable, reusable cloth pads.
AND WHY IS THAT SUCH A BIG DEAL? HERE’S WHY:
After doing some research, Agrawal says she found that more than 100 million girls in the developing world were missing a week of school because of their periods, and using things such as leaves, old rags, or plastic bags in the place of sanitary pads.
THE SIZES RUN FROM XS TO XXL AND THE PRICES ARE NOT INSANE, THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN THOSE 5 FOR $10 SALES AT TARGET BUT YOU WON’T HAVE TO THROW THEM OUT BECAUSE YOU MISCALCULATED YOUR FLOW AND BLED ALL OVER THEM BEFORE YOU COULD GET TO A BATHROOM
I’M SORRY FOR SHOUTING I’M JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS
LIKE HOLY FUCKBASKET IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME
"and that is why pink ribbons are for boobies." -hank green

the green brothers ruin everything
i think i just threw up in my mouth a little bit
(For the full historical context): Prior to the end of WWI, both male and female children wore white, bleached, gender neutral clothing. Both wore dresses, stockings, etc. Following the end of WWI, some times colors were marketed as gender—pink towards boys, blue towards girls—but also it was just as normal to see pink marketed towards brown or dark haired babies, and blue towards blonde or ginger babies. The conclusion of “blue for boys, pink for girls” wasn’t linear, and wasn’t set in stone until the 60s and 70s, the 70s being the first time you see real pushback against the solidifying trend.
And its STILL wrong about a pink being for breast cancer.
The original breast cancer ribbon was a salmon/orangey/peach color, and was created by Charlotte Haley as a campaign for more money towards breast cancer research. The movement was popular so Estee Lauder wanted to buy the symbol. Haley refused because it was a company trying to hijack a grassroots campaign for financial gain and Estee Lauder and some lawyers realized that a little change from peach to PINK was enough to circumvent copyright laws.
Green brothers, no. Bad.
Isn’t this like hollowing out a corpse, then putting someone else’s organs inside and cooking them?

Three dog skulls from ‘Secrets of Bones’ hosted by Ben Garrod. The first image shows a regular dog skull; this contains both collagen, an organic compound, and calcium phosphate, a mineral compound.
In the images with the red gloves, another skull has been left in an oven for a few days. This has taken out all of the organic compounds, leaving just the mineral compounds. As you can see, this bone is too brittle to be of structural use.
In the images with the blue gloves, a skull has been soaked in formic acid for over a month. This removed the calcium phosphate from the bone but leaves the collagen. The surprising result is a very flexible skull.
Whaaaat. That is awesome.
Gotta get me some formic acid!
