Anonymous said: What's the word for the type of gray when the lights are turned off?


Eigengrau (“intrinsic gray” / “own grey”), also called Eigenlicht (“intrinsic light”), dark light, or brain gray, is a term for the uniform dark gray background that many people report seeing in the absence of light. It is the dark grey colour seen by the eyes in perfect darkness, as a result of signals from the optic nerves.

Even in the absence of light, some action potentials are still sent along the optic nerve, causing the sensation of a uniform dark gray color. Eigengrau is perceived as lighter than a black object in normal lighting conditions, because contrast is more important to the visual system than absolute brightness.

Hence, what we see in the dark is not black (000000), but the color eigengrau (16161D hex or 22,22,29 RGB).

"What’s the worst thing I’ve stolen? Probably little pieces of other people’s lives. Where I’ve either wasted their time or hurt them in some way. That’s the worst thing you can steal, the time of other people. You just can’t get that back."

Chester Bennington  (via sinkingsouls)

i will reblog this every time

I worked with a lady that came into work one day with no hair. No one mentioned it, no one talked about it. She was wearing a bandana so we all knew she was bald.

But I have ADD, and not so great control of my impulsiveness. Finally, near the end of the night I asked. “So… can I ask, what happened to your hairs?”

She smiled and hugged me. I was the only person with the cajones to ask. “My best friend is pregnant, already has a 4 yr old, and was diagnosed with cancer, and her boyfriend left her because it was too much. So I’ve been helping her out, being supportive. And I promised her if she started losing her hair I would shave my head too.”

“Last night she called me, crying because her hair was falling out in clumps. I told her I’d be there in 10 minutes. She shaved me first, then I her.”

It’s the most supportive thing she could think to do.

I just started crying.

there is a song
you’re trembling to its tune
at the request of the moon

The people and the friends that we have lost, or the dreams that have faded… Never forget them.

Things people don’t get to choose:

  • Sexual Orientation
  • Gender Identity
  • Height
  • Weight
  • Appearance
  • Disabilities
  • Mental Illnesses
  • Race

Things people do get to choose

  • To be an ignorant bitch-faced asshole to people because of things they have no control over
