Set of original photo manipulations and digital artworks by Nikita Gill.
GIFs can often feel like a visual vortex, an infinite loop of pixelated madness, sucking you closer and closer to your laptop’s screen. One artist is taking that sensation to its logical extreme, as his GIFs intentionally strive to suck viewers into a digital whirlpool, comprised of uncanny imagery such as ears, vegetables, and cat eyes.
Polish artist Feliks Tomasz Konczakowski is a self-described “unpolished visual artist who probably comes from Mars.” His Tumblr is piled high with GIFs and images that can feel hypnotic (or nauseating), depending on how long you gaze into his Photoshopped abysses.
Telling me I’m not allowed to be sad because there are other people out there who have it worse is like telling me I can’t be happy because other people have it better"
"I brought Amy out here because we’re about to introduce Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, our next two presenters and it’s a big deal to introduce them.

trigger warning: rape, sexual assault
An Oklahoma City police officer was arrested Thursday and charged sexually assaulting at least six women while he was on patrol, though police expect more alleged victims to come forward.
Daniel Holtzclaw is charged with rape, oral sodomy and sexual battery. The three-year veteran of the force is being held on a $5 million bond, Reuters reports.
Police said the assaults took place while Holtzclaw was on the job, in some cases as a result of traffic stops.
alright first of all it’s really important to know that he attacked black women ages 34-58, where he demanded they expose themselves, fondle them, raping them, and either asking or demanding oral sex from them.
ladies of oklahoma, if you’ve been attacked by this man, most likely during traffic stops, please don’t be scared to report. this guy’s looking at life in prison and i’m sure your brave contribution would confirm his confinement.

Solar energy that doesn’t block the view
A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”
