Loki calm down.
It’s just a game.
TUMBLE THE VOTE!
Tomorrow is The Big Day - and while all our blogging and live GIFing has undoubtedly prepared you to exercise your civic duty with glee, here are a few more Tumblrs we recommend consulting in these last remaining hours to equip, inform, entertain and inspire you:
Our Time - Pledge to vote today & prep for tomorrow by looking up your polling place. Watch their newest video from Errol Morris to find out how to respond to your friends who say they’re not voting.
TheBallot.org - It’s easy to lose sight of the fact that there’s a lot more at stake in this election than who fills the office of the President. Hit up TheBallot to familiarize yourself with your local ticket, customize your ballot, and share with friends to help inform their vote.
#GOVOTE - Over 100 artists have contributed new, original designs to the movement to Get Out The Vote on Nov 6. Collect them all!
CNN’s Change the List - Can this new experimental project from CNN succeed in moving Hawaii up the ranks from the lowest voter turnout in America? Stay tuned…
Current TV- Welcome Current to Tumblr this election season by following their election day live-tumbling tomorrow.
Dispatch - A new app from Columbia, Stanford, and Tumblr will be beta-tested on Election Day in NYC - sign up to be part of the testing team, or just tune in tomorrow for live photographic coverage of New Yorkers’ post-Sandy experience at the polls.
We’re excited to have our final, all-star team of guest editors Ari Melber & ShortFormBlog continuing their work right here through Election Day (or until we have a President-elect, whichever comes first). And you can always track the Election 2012 tag for much more election-related content from across the Tumblrverse.
Finally, to celebrate Election Day on Tumblr we’re mashing up GPOY with GOTV and asking you to post photos of yourself voting/at your polling place/with your ballot ready to mail in/wearing your “I Voted” sticker and tag it #GPOTV. If you’ve already voted early, start posting now!
To all of you eligible voters in the USA - get out there tomorrow and make us proud!
From law student to bride to rebel in Syria: Law student Hanadi, 19, is eager to see action on the front lines. Her ticket? A marriage of convenience to a militia commander fighting to oust Bashar Assad.
“We were raised in a conservative society where a girl has to heed her mother and father, but I no longer recognize their authority,” she said, underscoring what some describe as not only an uprising against the government but also a revolution that has upset the balance between generations. Many of the activists and fighters have joined the fight against their parents’ wishes.

Frogs will certainly jump for joy at this news: virtual dissection may be the way of the future in America’s classrooms.
Well that just takes all the fun out of science class.
this kind of technology has been around for a while now. I suppose it would save money on buying dead frogs.
Oh my gosh! I always do, but I thought this was so funny :)
I’ve been QUOTED!
