Artists have placed a giant poster depicting a child’s face in an area of Pakistan where US drone attacks occur.  The project is called #NotABugSplat. This is in response to drone operators who refer to casualities as bug splats, cause from afar, viewed on monitors, that’s all the victims look like. The artists are hoping to have more artworks placed across Pakistan where drone strikes are frequent to help humanise victims to the strikers and the world.

Simultaneously the worst and best movie ever made

Actually one of my teachers watched every single version of Romeo and Juliet with the original text in front of him to prove that this was the worst version, but to his great dismay its the most accurate film adaptation of it, with the lines closest to the original text and most similar stage direction and relayed emotions.

He proceeded to show it to us in class.

"

17% of cardiac surgeons are women, 17% of tenured professors are women. It just goes on and on. And isn’t that strange that that’s also the percentage of women in crowd scenes in movies? What if we’re actually training people to see that ratio as normal so that when you’re an adult, you don’t notice?

…We just heard a fascinating and disturbing study where they looked at the ratio of men and women in groups. And they found that if there’s 17% women, the men in the group think it’s 50-50. And if there’s 33% women, the men perceive that as there being more women in the room than men.
