LIVE FROM ISTANBUL: Today, following Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s extremely sectarian, separatist, and fictious speech in Ankara, around 9 PM, the Turkish police began to attack thousands of people who were at the Gezi Park and Taksim square, having dinner. There are kids under 4-5 years old, mothers, and old people among those who were under gas and pressurised water attack. According to reports, police doesn’t allow journalists to report or to take pictures from Gezi Park. They are also attacking with pressurised water business such as famous Divan Hotel that opened its doors to protestors running away from brutality. People are saying there are thousands of wounded inside of the hotel. People formed a human chain in front of the hotel to prevent police to attack. Another report says that people cannot leave the hotel because police is arresting whoever leaves. There are also unconfirmed reports that police shut down the metro and boats between Asia and Europe to stop people coming and joining the rest. Another report says that there is a jammer in the area to prevent TV stations’ broadcast. There are hundreds of wounded. There are a lot of missing kids, or kids who are separated from their families. Protestors are fighting with police in Sıraselviler, Cihangir, Harbiye, and most likely around Dolmabahçe and Maçka. People call it a total brutality, a real savagery that is going on tonight. What we are seeing an ugly war where only one side have weapons. PLEASE DO REBLOG I WOULD ASK A LOT !! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!

What is optimism?

What is optimism? I don’t understand it. Optimism is often described as seeing the glass half-full. But “half-full” is really just semantics. Truthfully, half-full is the same as half-empty. The only difference is the words you use and the influence the words have on your perception.

Therefore if you are choosing to be optimistic, then you are choosing to see things in a certain way. If you are choosing to see things in a certain way instead of as the world appears to be, then what’s the point of being truthful or being honest?

To me optimism is like ignoring reality because you can’t really accept the messages that your senses are sending to you. Optimism is like lying to your self, but the thing about this particular lie is that it lulls you into a state of complacency. If the world really is going down the toilet, then optimism is your enemy.

“What? Habeas corpus has been revoked? That’s ok, I’m not a criminal.”

“Huh? GMOs cause cancer? Well, a doctor’s got to work too.”

"Global warming? That just means more summer time!"

Download Your Memories; Retrieve Them Later
Could human memories be uploaded and stored — just like data — in a computer? Scientists say not now, but in the coming decades it’s likely we’ll be able to store our memories in a way that allows us to retrieve them later. Long the stuff of science fiction novels, this kind of merger between computer technology and the human brain is being pushed by new findings in neuroscience, as well as advances in computer science and artificial intelligence.

And who wouldn’t be happy about having their brain scanned and tracked? Of course, think of all the virus protection software you’ll need to upload.
