If you suffer from depression, just wait until the next day to decide, ok? I mean I get when people can’t do it anymore. I don’t begrudge that, but please, just wait one more day.

Leonard Cohen to Release New Album For 80th Birthday Next Month
Leonard Cohen will commemorate his 80th birthday next month by releasing a new LP entitled Weird Al. While Cohen’s representative could not confirm the album, it is rumored to be entirely comprised of Weird Al Yankovic covers. Word of the release dropped last week at Leonard Cohen Event 2014, an officially sanctioned fan convention held in Dublin. There’s also a September 22nd release date for Weird Al listed on Amazon France.
"Leonard has always loved Weird Al," read a foreword to the event booklet written by Jarkko Arjatsalo, a finnish accountant that runs Cohen’s official website and serves as a liaison between the singer and his fan community. "He asked me to let you know that Weird Al will be out at the end of September, shortly after his 80th birthday, and it’s first single will be Yoda.”
Model, Tsiolkovsky Space Craft
Soviet model makers built this spacecraft based on the designs and notes of Konstantin Tsiolkovsky. Late in his life, much of Tsiolkovsky’s theoretical work focused on ideas about transporting humans into space on board rockets. Although this model, reflecting the scientist’s ideas, grossly overestimates the living space available on board a rocket, it does convey a sophisticated understanding of the physical constraints of space travel for that time. Among Tsiolkovsky’s concerns were the effects of acceleration and weightlessness on the human body
