A beautifully done animation on how you became you.
See the full video here as I left out some really cool parts.
From 300 or so million down to ONE.
YOU. MADE. IT.
This is so awesome..
Why does that one guard look like kanye
"Remember Boss, this is a sneaking mission. How you eliminate them is up to you.."
Convo I just had with my dad
- Dad: hey I'm gonna go grocery shopping do you need anything?
- Me: uuuhhh....
- Me: contemplates wether or not I should ask him to get me pads since I need them desperately
- Dad: anything at all?
- Me: uh... Yeah.... Can you get me some pads
- Dad: Sure
- Me: Are you serious? Wouldn't you be embarrassed?
- Dad: Natalie, I'm a 56 year old man who has been buying pads for your mother for over 20 years. No I'm not embarrassed.
- Me: But I thought guys get squirmish when we ask them to buy this stuff for us
- Dad: boys are squirmish. Men will step out and buy you as many pads and tampons as you need. A man will understand that you cannot control your cycle and that this is a natural bodily process. So, if you ever find a guy who's too embarrassed to buy you pad just bleed on everything he owns.
- Me: OMG DAD
Tonight’s a great night to look up. Starting at 2AM EDT and peaking from 3am to 4:30, there will be a lunar eclipse visible from all of North America. To make things better, Mars is currently very close to Earth, making it the brightest object in the night sky.
If you’re lucky enough to be viewing tonight’s events from Central Florida, Space-X will be launching a Dragon 9 capsule to the ISS at 4:58PM EDT - adding a little extra something to the sky.
See you in the stars.
So many clouds in the sky I can’t see the eclipse :(
cute things to call your girlfriend:
5. 1/2lb butter
7. pour into pan
8. preheat to 375°
How CERN’s discovery of exotic particles may affect astrophysic
You may have heard that CERN announced the discovery of a strange particle known as Z(4430). A paper summarizing the results has been published on the physics arxiv, which is a repository for preprint (not yet peer reviewed) physics papers. The new particle is about 4 times more massive than a proton, has a negative charge, and appears to be a theoretical particle known as a tetraquark. The results are still young, but if this discovery holds up it could have implications for our understanding of neutron stars.
The building blocks of matter are made of leptons (such as the electron and neutrinos) and quarks (which make up protons, neutrons, and other particles). Quarks are very different from other particles in that they have an electric charge that is 1/3 or 2/3 that of the electron and proton. They also possess a different kind of “charge” known as color. Just as electric charges interact through an electromagnetic force, color charges interact through the strong nuclear force. It is the color charge of quarks that works to hold the nuclei of atoms together. Color charge is much more complex than electric charge. With electric charge there is simply positive (+) and its opposite, negative (-). With color, there are three types (red, green, and blue) and their opposites (anti-red, anti-green, and anti-blue).
