Still figuring things out, but I know where I'm headed, and that's forward.

And that's how I like it.

Gay conversion therapy is still legal in 48 states — but not for long 

It’s 2014, and gay conversion therapy is still a real thing — although the legal tides are slowly but surely changing.
Last week, a federal appeals court upheld New Jersey’s ban on the controversial practice. The measure was signed into law by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in 2013, making the state one of only two in the U.S. — the other being California — with such a law.

What is the Big Rip?

"If dark energy is only a constant, than things like our Solar System, our galaxy, and even our local group of galaxies — consisting of the Milky Way, Andromeda, the Triangulum Galaxy, the Magellanic Clouds and a few dozen small, dwarf galaxies — will remain gravitationally bound together for trillions upon trillions of years into the future. But if dark energy is increasing, or getting stronger over time, then that acceleration rate will not only drive distant galaxies away from us, but will cause these structures to become gravitationally unbound as time goes on!"

Now that dark energy is firmly in place as the dominant source of energy in the Universe, the race is on to figure out exactly what its properties are, and what that will mean for the Universe’s fate. If it’s truly a cosmological constant, we’re in for a Big Freeze, as galaxies expand away from one another faster and faster, leaving only our gravitationally-bound local group behind. But if dark energy changes over time, we might yet see a Big Crunch or the most horrifying of all fates: a Big Rip, where galaxy-by-galaxy, star-by-star and eventually atom-by-atom, everything is torn apart!
