We've been wearing sunscreen even more religiously since watching this beautiful, captivating, perturbing look into the ultraviolet spectrum and how it affects our skin.

+Jason Morrison and +ann morrison, you're not alone in considering playing the Name of Thrones.
Game of Thrones-inspired names are continuing to gain ground among nerdy parents.

+Jason Morrison and +Yuan Niu I'd point you to rejectedprincesses.com but I don't want to be responsible for your disengaging from the world for the next week. Which since as far as I can guys is what would happen since the site is basically info crack for you: an alternate reality where Pixar and Disney princess movies feature massive decapitation, tanks, and possibly fixed equestrian fencing matches, all drawn from history...
 
In his blog Rejected Princesses, each week, former DreamWorks animator Jason Porath adds a new illustration and write-up about a woman who is, as the blog says, "too awesome, awful or offbeat for kids' movies." One of his favorite examples is the aforementioned Soviet tank commander, Sergeant Mariya Oktyabrskaya. Porath says Oktyabrskaya's husband was killed by the Nazis, so she sold all of her belongings in order to buy a tank and fight. She named the tank "Fighting Girlfriend." The illustration shows her sitting atop her tank, anthropomorphized in Cars-like fashion, amid a battle.

A tank commander, a serial killer and a Mexican revolutionary wouldn't usually get to star in a Disney princess flick. But they do take the spotlight in a blog celebrating great women from history.
