Ubiquitous: penfairy oh! I have to tell you guys a great story one of my professors told me. So he has a friend who is involved in these Shakespeare outreach programs where they try to bring Shakespeare and live theatre to poor and underprivileged groups and teach them about English literature and performing arts and such. On one of their tours they stopped at a young offenders institute for women and they put on a performance of Romeo and Juliet for a group of 16-17 year old girls. It was all going really well and the girls were enjoying and laughing through the first half- because really, the first half is pretty much a comedy-but as the play went on, things started to get quiet. Real quiet. Then it got up to the suicide scene and mutterings broke out and all the girls were nudging each other and looking distressed, and as this teacher observed them, he realised-they didn't know how the play ended. These girls had never been exposed to the story of Romeo and Juliet before, something which he thought was impossible given how ubiquitous it is in our culture. I mean, the prologue even gives the ending away, but of course it doesn't specify exactly how the whole "take their life" thing goes down, so these poor girls had no idea what to expect and were sitting there clinging to hope that Romeo would maybe sit down for a damn minute instead of murdering Paris and chugging poison but BAM he died and they all cried out and then Juliet WOKE UP and they SCREAMED and by the end of the play they were so upset that a brawl nearly broke out, and that's the story of how Shakespeare nearly started a riot at a juvenile detention centre dukeofbookingham Apparently something similar happened during a production of Much Ado at Rikers Island because a bunch of inmates wanted to beat the shit out of Claudio, which is more than fair tbh maha-pambata-is-my-patronus honestly Shakespeare would be so pleased to know his plays were nearly starting brawls centuries into the future jabberwockypie Beating the shit out of Claudio is definitely a fair and reasonable response, honestly Source: penfairy Shakespeare

Ubiquitous: WORLDS TOP PHYSICISTS DISCOVER BINARY CODE WRITTEN INTOTHE FABRIC OF SPACE TIME Professor Sylvester James Gates Jr Says we are living in a Matrix @4biddenknowledge Dr. SylvesterJamesGates, Jr., a theoreticalphysicist, the John S. Toll Professor of Physics at the UniversityofMaryland, and the Director of The Center for StringTheory & ParticleTheory, is reporting that certain string theory, supersymmetrical equations, which describe the fundamental nature of the Universe and reality, contain embedded computer codes. These codes are digital data in the form of 1′s and 0′s. Not only that, these codes are the same as what make web browsers work and are error-correction codes! Gates says, “We have no idea what these ‘things’ are doing there”. Physicists have long sought to describe the universe in terms of equations. Now, James Gates explains how research on a class of geometric symbols known as adinkras could lead to fresh insights into the theory of supersymmetry — and perhaps even the very nature of reality.This unsuspected connection suggests that these codes may be ubiquitous in nature, and could even be embedded in the essence of reality. If this is the case, we might have something in common with the Matrix science-fiction films, which depict a world where everything human beings experience is the product of a virtual-reality-generating computer network. The world's top leading physicists now all concur that we may be in a Quantum fractal HolographicUniverse created by a ancestor civilization from a higher dimension.

Ubiquitous: HH NEW Ford has revealed the ST version of the new Fiesta, and it's packing a 197bhp 1.5-litre inline-three cylinder engine Via @carthrottlenews - Let’s get the big piece of news out of the way: As was first rumoured a little while ago, the ST has indeed dropped a cylinder and a little bit of displacement, switching to a 1.5-litre three-pot. - It’s presumably derived from the existing 1.5-litre Ecoboost unit, although Ford describes it as an “all-new” engine. It’s been given a new turbocharger with an “optimised” turbine design to reduce lag, plus “Twin-independent Variable Cam Timing. It’s good for 197bhp, and 214lb ft of torque. - Both of those figures are the same as what the outgoing car achieved when its ‘overboost’ function kicked in. The new car will do 0-62mph in an “anticipated’ 6.7 seconds, although there’s no word on top speed just yet.

The ‘Normal’, ‘Sport’ and ‘Track’ modes each alter the steering, throttle response and traction-stability controls to varying degrees. Stick it in ‘Track’ mode and the traction control goes entirely, with the ESP set to ‘wide slip’ mode.

Ubiquitous: HH NEW
 Ford has revealed the ST version of the new
 Fiesta, and it's packing a 197bhp 1.5-litre
 inline-three cylinder engine
Via @carthrottlenews - Let’s get the big piece of news out of the way: As was first rumoured a little while ago, the ST has indeed dropped a cylinder and a little bit of displacement, switching to a 1.5-litre three-pot. - It’s presumably derived from the existing 1.5-litre Ecoboost unit, although Ford describes it as an “all-new” engine. It’s been given a new turbocharger with an “optimised” turbine design to reduce lag, plus “Twin-independent Variable Cam Timing. It’s good for 197bhp, and 214lb ft of torque. - Both of those figures are the same as what the outgoing car achieved when its ‘overboost’ function kicked in. The new car will do 0-62mph in an “anticipated’ 6.7 seconds, although there’s no word on top speed just yet. There isn’t an MPG figure available right now either, but Ford is expecting CO2 emissions of around 114g-km. - The car gets a torque vectoring by braking system just like the old one, plus three driving modes.

Ubiquitous: lgbt-history-archive: Freddie Mercury (September 5, 1946 – November 24, 1991), 1978. Photo © Neal Preston. Freddie Mercury, who would turn seventy today, was born Farrokh Bulsura in Zanzibar, though he and his family fled to Britain during the Zanzibar Revolution of 1964. From a young age, Mercury (who began calling himself “Freddie” at boarding school) displayed the characteristics that came to define his public persona: intense kindness and shyness mixed with an uncanny musical ability that, when engaged, would bring out an enormous personality. By 1971, Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon had formed the band that Mercury dubbed “Queen”; around the same time, he changed his last name to Mercury. For the next twenty years, Queen blended prog, glam, and arena rock, disco, opera, gospel, heavy metal, and countless other styles to create an extraordinary sound and to produce hits as varied as “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Somebody to Love,” “I Want to Break Free,” “These Are The Days Of Our Lives,” and the ubiquitous “We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions.” And, of Queen’s legendary live performances, one writer summarized as follows: “Freddie Mercury on stage…is the summit of rock n’ roll.” As with many queer pioneers, debates persist over how Mercury “defined” his sexuality and whether he was “sufficiently open.” In 1992, one writer noted that Mercury “was a ‘scene-queen,’ not afraid to publicly express his [sexuality], but unwilling to analyze or justify his ‘lifestyle’…It was as if Freddie Mercury was saying to the world, ‘I am what I am. So what?’ And that in itself for some was a statement.” Mercury was diagnosed with AIDS in the spring of 1987, a fact he did not publicly confirm until the day before his death. Freddie Mercury died on November 24, 1991; he was forty-five. Mercury was survived by his partner, Jim Hutton, and his longtime companion, Mary Austin. #lgbthistory #lgbtherstory #lgbttheirstory #lgbtpride #QueerHistoryMatters #HavePrideInHistory #FreddieMercury

 Fun Story. My director
 kept teling me and my
 tenor sax budy to play
 softer No matter what
 we did, it wasnt soft
 enough for him So
 getting frustrated I told
 my buddy "Dort play
 this time Just fake
 Our Band Director then
 informed us we
 sounded perfect.
 To my readers: "p' means
 quiet. pp' means really
 quiet Ive never seen
 "pppp' before haha
 On the contrast, T means
 Joud and probably
 means so loud you go
 unconscious
 Ihad in a piece once and my
 conductor told me to play as
 loudy as physicaly possible
 without faling off my char.
 Me and my trombone buddes had
 " and he sat next to me and
 played so hard that he fell out of his
 chair
 The lengths we go for music.
 Okay yeah so I play the bass clarinet and
 the amount of air you have to move and
 the stifness of the reed means t only
 has two setings and that is loud and
 louder, with an optional LOUDEST that
 includes a 50% probatility of HORRIBLE
 CROAKING NOISE which is the bass
 equivalent of the ubiquitous clarinet
 shriek
 One day, when I was in concert band in high
 school, we got a new piece handed out for the
 first time, and there was a strange little
 commotion back in the tuba section-
 whispering, and pointing at something in the
 music, and swatting at each other's hands all
 shhh dont cal attention to And although
 they did atract the attention of basically
 y
 everyone else in the band, they managed to
 avoid being noticed by the band director, who
 gave us a few minutes to look over our parts
 and then said, "Al right, let's run through it up
 to section A
 And here we are, cheerfuly playing along
 sounding reasonably competent- but
 everyone, when they have the attention to
 spare, is keeping an eye on the tuba players.
 They don't come in for the first eight
 measures or so, and then when they do
 come in, what we see is:
 (safled gigging
 Ireeeeeeally deep breath
 ICOLOSSAL FOGHORN NOISE)
 The entire band stops dead, in the
 cacophonous kind of way that a band stops
 when it hasn't actually been cued to stop. The
 band director doesnt even say anything just
 looks straight back at the tubas and makes a
 helpless sort of why gesture
 h unison, the tuba plavers defend
 themselves "THERE WERE FOUR F'S
 FFFF is not realy a rational dynamic marking
 for any instrument, but for the love of al that
 is holy why would you put t in a fuba part
