Stunning photos of tears under a microscope vary by emotion

Follow policymic

"The project, called "The Topography of Tears," captures unique moments in human experience, but there’s also a scientific reason why every tear looks so different. There are three different types of tears: basal (lubricating), reflex (responding to stimuli) and psychic (triggered by emotion). Each type of tear contains different organic substances, and the molecular makeup depends on the causative agent. For instance, emotional tears contain the neurotransmitter leucine enkephalin, a natural painkiller that the body releases to mitigate stress."

Woah what

I thought this was a joke post, like that pizza-MRI one. But it’s actually not. Huh.

I write this with a lot of trepidation, because I am unsure of the result…

Hi Tumblr.

This is my best friend and life partner, Kris, who was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, a disease in which, the immune system attacks the body’s healthy cells and tissue; harming organs and organ systems like the heart, lungs, skin, liver, kidneys.

The symptoms appeared two months ago, and those two months have been difficult and frightening, as we had to navigate our daily lives without the knowledge or safety of social support. 

Saddled with the debt and continuing cost of living expenses, education loans, and the life-saving medication without insurance, we’re stuck in a living situation that may have contributed to the development of this disease.

We’ve been trying to get out of this basement apartment before this illness appeared, and now driven by desperation, knowing my hard work and humble earnings will not be enough, I’ve created this fundraiser in an attempt to finally ask for the help that we truly need. 

The set goal is very intimidating and it fills me with anxiety, but I will actively contributdo what I can to get us there. I may put a few of my most precious possessions up for auction/sale. None of those things matter in the sobering face of our situation

I am working with a few wonderful artists to create a pretty cool reward ladder for donations. More information and visuals will be provided in the coming days, but in the meanwhile, we would be truly grateful if you can reblog, share or donate to our fundraiser

Fundraiser: Help Kris Live Without Pain on GoFundMe

Thank you so much for reading.

Sure it is Rob….

The only way to listen to Scherzo is to imagine me chuckling gleefully as I wrote it. By a swimming pool on my honeymoon. It’s a very *happy* story of sunshine and afternoon cocktails and getting splashed, that’s my memory of it. It’s *fun*! :)

The high-pitched sound that burrows its way into our brains is just the audio representation of a merry thumbs up!

Exactly. In my household, we put that little screech on every Christmas when we unwrap our presents - we think of it as jolly and as festive as Jingle Bells! And all my cousins and nephews got married to it. It always puts a smile on the face of all the members of the Shearman household.

I read this and interpreted it as all of Rob’s cousins and nephews got married to a horrible screeching noise monster. Given Rob’s way of thinking, that might be what he actually meant.

Like everyone always talks about how amazing Rise of the Guardians’ animation was but I think we need to all take a step back and look at the work of art that TinTin was like

look at this detail i cant even

When I first saw a trailer on TV I thought it was live action until I saw it again and I was like “wait is it live action”

I want to point out that Tintin was motion-captured as opposed to RotG which was completely animated, to the best of my knowledge. Not that this detracts from how great Tintin looked.
