dragons are mentioned in almost all cultures all across the world even before they had interaction with each other and you’re telling me they didn’t exist
wow it’s almost like some kind of large lizard-like creatures roamed the earth at some point and left fossilized remnants of their bodies behind that ancient cultures were trying to make sense of
MMM WHATCHA SAAAAAYYYY
I wasn’t going to reblog this and then I saw the caption.
fun fact: Sam warming his hands wasn’t in the script. Before they shot this scene the director was talking to Jared and mentioned that it was a cold night. Jared thought the director was telling him to show that it was cold out, so he did this
The gif is called, “Benham’s disk" "is named after the English toymaker Charles Benham, who in 1895 sold a top painted with the pattern shown. When the disk is spun, arcs of pale color, called Fechner colors or pattern-induced flicker colors (PIFCs), are visible at different places on the disk. Not everyone sees the same colors."
"The phenomenon originates from neural activity in the retina and spatial interactions in the primary visual cortex, which plays a role in encoding low-level image features, such as edges and spatiotemporal frequency components."
Fascinating how our brains work, I see a brown tan, what do you see? :D
The Kum and Go. Or as my mom called it, the ejaculate and evacuate.
Jizz and jet
shoot and scoot
blow your load and hit the road
bust ya nut and off ya strut
Moon River, wider than a mile
I’m crossing you in style, someday
Oh dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you’re going, I’m going your way
Two drifters, off to see the world
There’s such a lot of world to see
We’re after the same rainbow’s end, waiting, round the bend
My Huckleberry friend, Moon River, and me
it took me 10 years to realized his head went into the shape of a leg
A cloud chamber and the birth of helium atoms.
The tracks here show the natural radiation in the atmosphere around us. Thicker tracks are big heavy alpha particles, whispy ones are beta particles, but they all work in the same way.
The atmosphere in the chamber contains a lot of alcohol vapour. When charged particles fire through the atmosphere they cause little droplets to form, and these are the clouds you can see.
This is similar to how a track forms behind an aeroplane, where the exhaust can help the droplets of moisture form together into a cloud.
When you then add an Americium pole into the chamber, the alpha particles emitted (with their two protons and two neutrons) grab electrons and form Helium atoms.

The top image in this trio presents a surprising perspective on Microtubules In Vitro. The striking Edvard Munch-like image was taken by Ian Newton.
Below, the colourful array of bacteria derived from a flower bed soil sample, illustrates the wide range of beautiful colony shapes produced by these organisms. The bacteria in the image, by David Widdick, are the source of many antibiotics.
The bottom image is Blue Wing by Tom Matheson. The photo was inspired by his research into the neuromechanical control of limb movements in insects. This subject, lit by oblique blue light, shows an intriguing pattern of dark pigmented patches and intricate wing venation of the adult fore-wing.
These are just three of the images in our smorgasbord of images. Vote for your favourite at: http://bbsrc2014.picturk.com/
i had a crush on this guy and i decided to pull a Pavlov on him by offering him whenever i saw him this brand of candy he seemed to really like and after a while whenever he saw me he got excited for a second then you could see his expression shift to wondering the why the hell was he so happy to see me and i swear it was the evilest thing but also the most hilarious i made a guy like me by conditioning him into associating me to a candy he liked
