As close as you will ever be to a nuclear explosion
THIS IS FUCKING TERRIFYING
No thank you.
The columns of smoke in the foreground are telephone poles boiling
This is way cooler to look at than it should be
Science side of Tumblr would like to add:
Heat is generally transmitted in 3 forms: conduction, convection, radiation.
The fact that the telephone poles and wires are boiling away well before the shockwave hits them indicates that the heat from the explosion has not reached them by convection (much slower than the speed of sound) or by conduction (at best, comparable to the speed of sound), but purely by radiation. In other words: the explosion is bright enough to boil everything.
reblogging again for what engineer—cat said
Woman? Is that meant to insult me?
team aqua is still better than team magma
I actually love this quote because it represents a cynical philosophy on storytelling (and life) that his own characters prove wrong.
Princess Tutu’s many layers of meta, and the story’s commentary on stories themselves, is my favourite thing about it. Drosselmeyer’s characters, and by extension, the narrative itself, show that a happy ending is not simple and uninteresting. It’s a common belief today, that in storytelling, darkness and tragedy equals depth and maturity.
However, all the main characters in Princess Tutu faced harsh realities, struggled with their identities, and made sacrifices. They ultimately defined their own identities, and found hope in a bleak situation. They worked hard for their happiness. And that is profound storytelling.
Princess Tutu says that hope is something that should be celebrated in storytelling, and life.
I was watching How It’s Made: Bread and all I could think of was this.
I think England in #12 looks cool
