#god you can just tell how important physical intimacy is to kurt #and when blaine pulls away from him like that it really hurts #not just because he wants sex #but because he wants the closeness and intimacy that being with blaine in that way gives him #kurt isn’t a very affectionate or touchy-feely person #especially compared to blaine #and he definitely doesn’t always wear his heart on his sleeve #but i think it’s obvious that being physically initmate with somebody is very important to him #it’s how he expresses his love #and blaine pulling away from him like this and turning to things like porn instead #it really hurts #and it probably makes him feel inadequate #and think he’s not good enough (x)

Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year. 

When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.

But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)

At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.  

Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”

Amen to that, Hugh.
