Meet Halena, a 6 year old girl from New Hampshire. This sweet little girl has cancer for the second time in her young life. They recently had to shave her head due to her hair falling out from chemo. We all know times are tough and medical bills are expensive so they set up a gofundme (http://www.gofundme.com/feg7xg) & are asking for any donations to help with medical bills and buying a wig for this cutie. Her favorite movie is frozen so of course she wants a wig to look like Elsa. Even if you can’t donate, please help spread the word. Positive vibes are just as awesome. Thanks for reading!
Reblog if you believe in Sherlock Holmes.
In addition to essentially inventing the computer, Alan Turing also broke the German Enigma Code during World War II which paved the way for the D-Day invasion. The man was a hyper-genius. I’ve read descriptions of his work by mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose. He’s been a hero of mine ever since.
The level of thought required to come up with the stuff he came up with is totally beyond my comprehension. I actually did not even know about his orientation until much later. He was prosecuted and ordered to undergo chemical castration. Soon thereafter, he committed suicide by eating a cyanide-laced apple.
The government forced him to take estrogen as a punishment (or “cure”?). He began to develop breasts and other side effects.
He committed suicide by biting into a cyanide laced apple. This is supposedly the inspiration for the name/logo of Apple computers.
and old Apple computers
the apple was a rainbow
Reblogging again because more people need to know about Turing dammit.
