Coldest Star Found—No Hotter Than Fresh Coffee
According to a new study, a star discovered 75 light-years away is no warmer than a freshly brewed cup of coffee.
Dubbed CFBDSIR 1458 10b, the star is what’s called a brown dwarf. These oddball objects are often called failed stars, because they have starlike heat and chemical properties but don’t have enough mass for the crush of gravity to ignite nuclear fusion at their cores.
With surface temperatures hovering around 206 degrees F (97 degrees C), the newfound star is the coldest brown dwarf seen to date.
I’m gonna…I’m gonna touch it..
I’m gonna “accidentally” spill that star on my lap an sue the universe.
I don’t get why this is so hard… For me… Personally.
I sit here waiting, anxious for an e-mail or a text or something. I just want to know one way or another, you know? And I want to know before it’s reasonable to know. In my head, he’s quiet, unsure, and distant because he’s not into me. He’s weighing me against someone else. He’s just hanging on because he feels like he should be into me and is waiting to be sure that his ambivalence isn’t just a spark waiting to light… but he’s leaning toward ambivalence. It’s all out of a sense of obligation now.
But why can I never see a guy as I see myself?
Why can’t I imagine that maybe he’s protective of his feelings, and afraid of being embarrassed, and struggling with his own past, too?
I know why. Because I’ve been on the receiving end of all those negatives so many times that it feels like a pattern that I can’t break out of, and I have nothing left in my heart now but the expectation that it will continue.
And that’s why I’ve come to hate dating. I’m so emotionally dried up that I can’t believe in the idea that it’s not going to end badly.

Slides 4 and 5 are me!
I’m still really upset and angry. He did it once, the camera happened to be on him, he did it once and I think it’s the funniest joke that’s ever been on our show. - Michael Schur (x)
A mother’s worst nightmare.
She was preaching
this gave me chills
Black woman who lost her son just preached on systemic racism, antiblackness, Black ppls internalized self-hatred and white supremacy.
But some of y’all missed it
We hear the same story so often where I work. The criminal justice system needs to listen to these stories and realize that they’re contributing to the problem of systemic racism and the achievement gap.
