Kailashnath Temple, also Kailash Temple or Kailasanath Temple is a famous temple dug…in the wall of a high basalt cliff in the complex located at Ellora, Maharashtra, India. It is a megalith carved out of one single rock. It was built in the 8th century by the Rashtrakuta king Krishna I.

The Kailash Temple is notable for its vertical excavation—carvers started at the top of the original rock, and excavated downward.

It is estimated that about 400,000 tons of rocks was scooped out over hundreds of years to construct this monolithic structure.

Discworld

I really need to read/watch the Discworld stuff.

Discworld is a lot more important than people give it credit.

I keep saying it, and I’m gonna KEEP saying it

READ. DISCWORLD.

GESTURES WILDLY

This is one of my favorite exchanges in all of Pratchett’s works, and that’s saying something.

Seriously. Read Discworld.

The Death novels are great for this sort of stuff. I love all of them.

"What can the harvest hope for, if not the care of the Reaper Man?"

But this is wrong. Just because something is abstract doesn’t mean it’s not real. Take the world and grind it into a fine powder. Can you find an atom of redness? No. An apple an be red, but redness is an abstraction. How about tennis? A game of tennis is a concrete object, but tennis, the concept, can’t be found in the universe. However, I doubt you would say tennis doesn’t exist. The number five doesn’t have a physical form. Sure you can have five apples, but you can’t hold the number five.

Just because something only exists in our minds doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

But being said, I love Discworld and you should totally read it.

Fuck Victim Blaming

A lot of people talk about how it’s not your fault if you’re sexually assaulted, raped, sexually abused, etc. That’s definitely true. It’s not your fault!

Neither is anything that happens to the perpetrator. I recently reported my father for sexually abusing me as a kid. My family was furious to me. They told my father was arrested because I reported him. But that’s victim blaming too. It’s not true. He was arrested because he committed a crime.

It’s not your fault if your rapist goes to prison. Your rapist will go to prison because he CHOSE to rape. It’s his fault.

Let’s stop HIV in New York City

  • If you are HIV-negative, PEP and PrEP can help you stay that way.
  • If you are HIV-positive, PEP and PrEP can help protect your partners.

 

Daily PrEP

PrEP is a daily pill that can help keep you HIV-negative as long as you take it every day.

  • Ask your doctor if PrEP (Pre-exposure Prophylaxis) may be right for you.
  • Condoms give you additional protection against HIV, other sexually transmitted infections, and unintended pregnancy.

 

Emergency PEP

If you are HIV-negative and think you were exposed to HIV, immediately go to a clinic or emergency room and ask for PEP (Post-exposure  Prophylaxis).

  • PEP can stop HIV if started within 36 hours of exposure.
  • You continue taking PEP for 28 days.

Many insurance plans including Medicaid cover PEP and PrEP. Assistance may be available if you are uninsured. Visit NYC Health’s website to find out where to get PrEP or PEP in New York City.

This is such a giant step that barely any people know about it seems, so amazing to see progress in the treatment of HIV
