Even though you say you want to die,
You stop at the crosswalk
And you even look both ways
Before crossing.
You buckle your seatbelt
Every time you get in a car,
Even on the days when you can
Barely drag yourself out of bed.
You don’t break the rules
That keep you alive because
Even though your entire being
Sometimes strains towards
That inevitable end,
You want the end to come
On your terms.
So everyday you stop and look
Both ways
Before crossing at the crosswalk,
Until one day you don’t.
e.e.h. - Cross at the crosswalk and look both ways before crossing (via unraveling-poetically)

NASA Injects New Funds Into Search for Origins of Life
Life is all around us, on Earth. But what about elsewhere in the Universe? We know there’s an abundance of life-giving chemicals out there, but what conditions are required to spark life as we know (and don’t know) it? Probably most importantly, if we did find extraterrestrial life, how would we recognize it as such?
In a new round of funding announced on Monday, NASA is allocating $50 million to 7 astrobiology research groups in the US to tackle these questions. Learn more
