Ink Calendar designed by Oscar Diaz. The ink will slowly color each day of the month as time passes by.

literally the coolest fucking thing i’ve ever seen.
EVER.

I wonder if the material accounts for differences in ambient temperatures and humidities to keep the timing roughly accurate?

how the hell did we get the idea pink isn’t a cool colour

because scientifically speaking pink doesn’t even exist; it fits between violet and red on the spectrum but actually what goes there is infrared and ultraviolet and all those things we can’t see

pink is the ambassador of an otherworldly and unknowable realm it is the most badass colour out there

I keep seeing this kind of thing floating around and it makes me want to claw at my hair and scream in incoherent frustration every time.

  1. Between violet and red on the electromagnetic spectrum is THE ENTIRE VISIBLE LIGHT SPECTRUM. Not pink. Not infrared or ultraviolet. Definitely not radio or x-rays. The longest (or lowest) visible wavelengths are red, which go into infrared (infra = below, red = red). The shortest (or highest) visible wavelengths are violet, which go into ultraviolet (ultra = above, violet = violet). Above red you get the oranges, then the yellows, then the yadda yadda until you reach the violets.
  2. Not all colors can be defined as a single wavelength on the visible light spectrum. MOST colors we see in the world aren’t. The majority of colors you see are formed by a combination of different reflected or emitted wavelengths. If you just have one wavelength, you’ve got a laser.
  3. Pink, in the sense we consider the color and in the absolute most over-simplified terms, is a combination of red and violet wavelengths - or, depending on your definition of pink, may even be a range of violets. It is not “between” them.

Okay? Okay.

I mean look, I am all for colors not being societally prejudiced against, but this pseudo-scientific bullshit I keep seeing like “OOOOOO WOW LOOK HOW SPECIAL PINK IS BECAUSE IT’S AN ~IMAGINARY COLOR~” or this one here about pink being, I don’t know, real-life octarine?? is just…

If you’re going to use science to make things cool then make sure you understand what you’re talking about first. Please. Otherwise you’re just spreading misinformation and misleading people and that’s rude.

What the heck is that Is that a horse shoe

That’s Omega!  It stands for “ohm,” which is a measure of electrical resistance.

And the answer is B!
It’s like having two holes in a bucket: smaller resistance is a bigger hole, because less is blocking the current (that’s what resistance means: resisting current, like an insulator). Water flows out through the bigger hole faster than through the smaller hole; more current flows through the weak resistor than the strong resistor.
If they were hooked up in series, i.e. one after another on the same stretch of the circuit, they would have the same current.

WE FOUND IT.
WE FOUND BETELGEUSE FIVE.

Remember when we read about touchscreen and ebook before those things exist? Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to find myself a nice towel.

HOLY ZAPHOD BEEBLEBROX SOMEBODY GET ME A THUMB A BEER AND SOME PEANUTS I’M NOT GONNA BE HERE WHEN THE WORLD ENDS

I hate to be That Guy but Kepler-22b is nowhere near Betelgeuse. Sorry guys…

i will accept nothing less than an opalized dinosaur tooth mounted in the purest gold from my suitor, sir.

Opalized dinosaur tooth Fossils are normally formed when minerals fill the cellular spaces and crystallize. Opalized fossils, on the other hand, form when bits of silica gel settled into the cracks and fissures of the cellular spaces and form opal. (via)


Why have I not gotten this for Christmas yet??
