Summer’s about gone, and kids and teachers are getting ready to head back to school.
Back-to-school isn’t the most fun time of year, but it is especially hard for teachers and students when there are billionaire families, like the Walmart-owning Waltons, gearing up to use…
Since I just finished marathoning Cosmos, it seems like good laylist:does anyone know where to get all the music that was recorded on Voyager’s golden record?
So I just reblogged someone’s idea for solarpunk, which would involve a green near future influenced by art nouveau and perhaps Edwardian aesthetics, less minimalist and more artisan than a lot of future images. Which sounded great.
I’m watch Cosmos and was pretty familiar with a lot of it, but I didn’t know about the history of solar energy, or about Augustin Mouchot, who got a gold metal for his solar engine at the 1878 Universal Exhibition, only to be told his work was not needed when coal prices dropped.
I admit I’d no idea this existed.
(Totally ties into the solarpunk ideas, and again makes me wonder why steampunk sometimes looks at social issues but never seems to look at the environmental issues of the era.)
Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute - even when the waters get deep, and dark.
New research from theoretical physicists at the Perimeter Institute proposes that our universe may have emerged from a black hole in a higher-dimensional universe. The big bang poses a big question: if it was indeed the cataclysm that blasted our universe into existence 13.7 billion years ago
I’m decent at biology news and chemistry news but I’ve reread this twice and they keep losing me at higher dimensional universe. Can someone explain physics to me?
another progress shot of mal. everything is scratchy textures now what the heck.
It’s brilliant, in progress or not. Beautiful warmth, great lighting, and he was a scratchy kinda guy, so I think even the texture works!
(And the slight mouth quirk expression. *sigh*)
