I’m sorry I don’t normally do cultural appropriation posts but this is not the hula. Where I am from this is not how we dance. Please stop confusing Hawaiian Culture with Tahitian Culture. I am Hawaiian and I really hate that the Polynesian culture is just some kitschy gimmick for those not of our race.

I’ve been working on a horror movie pitch for the past twenty four hours aka watching and reading every horrifically scary film I can get my hands on and I’ve started listening to the soundtrack for Suspiria while I write things that are scary and clever ways to kill people and I am already this on edge and it’s only 6:30pm and it’s not even dark out yet so if this is me now I’m going to be a paranoid crackhead in like three hours from now and I’m definitely going to have nightmares tonight if I can even fall asleep!!!!!!!! YOU GUYS!!!!!!!

Space-grown crystals may shed light on Huntington’s disease.
Scientists hope space-grown crystals of the protein behind Huntington’s disease could help them better understand the deadly neurodegenerative disorder.
A novel experiment to study the so-called Huntingtin protein arrived at its orbital laboratory on the International Space Station on April 20 along with 5,000 lbs. (2,268 kilograms) of cargo delivered on board SpaceX’s Dragon capsule.
So far, researchers haven’t had much luck creating crystals of the huntingtin protein on the ground, but Owens explained that crystals tend to grow more effectively in microgravity.
