The Pirate Bay, one of the most popular sites for file sharing, once again thwarted authorities trying to shut it down.
After briefly disappearing because its Caribbean domain name, thepiratebay.sx, was seized by authorities, the site popped back into action on thepiratebay.ac, according to The Verge and originally reported by Torrent Freak.
The “.ac” is the country code, top-level domain of an isolated volcanic island almost 1,000 miles from the coast of Africa in the Atlantic Ocean, called Ascension Island. (Photo: Wikemedia Commons)

I love this
Sixteen-year-old Elif Bilgin of Turkey has developed a way to replace traditional petroleum-based plastic with banana peels.
The Turkish teen took home a US$50,000 prize for her project “Go Bananas!” Thursday after winning the second annual Scientific American Science in Action Award, associated with Google Science Fair.
“My project makes it possible to use banana peels, a waste material which is thrown away almost every day, in the electrical insulation of cables,” Bilgin said in a media statement.
“This is both an extremely nature-friendly and cheap process, which has the potential to decrease the amount of pollution created due to the use of plastics, which contain petroleum derivatives.”
Bilgin spent two years developing the bio-plastic, which does not decay. She said the process is so easy that it is possible to repeat at home, with special care taken for chemicals used in the production process.
In September, the teen will compete at Google’s California headquarters for the overall Google Science Fair prize for 15-to-16 year olds. She will also have access to a one-year mentorship.
Has anyone else noticed how many brilliant breakthroughs in science are coming from the minds of teenage girls the last few years? Between this story, the four girls in Nigeria who invented a generator that runs on urine, the California girl who invented a twenty-second cell phone charger… Who knows where we’d be today without the patriarchal interference of men, stealing or hiding the brilliance of women?
Our future is in the hands of teenage girls, and I for one feel really good about that.
When I was about 7 I wanted to invent a thing that purified water based off of fish gills. I went to the school library to do research like a good little inventor and one of my teachers asked me what I was doing, and then told me that there were some new barbie books in, and that I’d probably be better off with those.
Don’t forget the girl who invented a torch that’d light up just from the heat of your hands
basically everyone should stop s***ting on teenage girls because they do awesome things when you let them
okay so the story in that link is great and all but it opens with
"Most teenage girls spend their free time gossiping with their friends and figuring out how to outwit their parents."
seriously? Like, seriously, that’s how they choose to open this incredible news story? Not by talking about the difficulties and complexities of any treatment for cancer, or how great and cool it is that a teenager came up with this— but by immediately making out like this one girl (not to disparage her accomplishment) is a shining, solitary beacon amongst teenage girls everywhere, who are all, of course, exactly like the dumbass stereotypes depicted on TV.
the hell kind of teenage girls are these people talking to?
I mean, sure, there are those quote-unquote “mean girls” in the quote-unquote “popular crowd” who can be pretty horrible in very public ways, but a) they are by no means the norm, b) they’re not the only ones who are like that, and c) they’re also actually real people with depth and shit, shocking as that may seem. A girl I knew all throughout high school who had a pointed and (as far as I could tell) baseless dislike of me also really genuinely loved working with disabled kids to help them get past their learning barriers. She wasn’t fucking evil, she wasn’t a fucking stereotype, she just didn’t like me. So when you portray “most” teenage girls as if they’re only the worst parts of her, the worst parts of the stereotypes on TV, you are doing real human beings an enormous disservice.
Knock it the fuck off already. It’s not funny. It’s not cute. And it’s not true.
