Since I’m waiting on my fabric to ship here in the mail, I decided to keep working on the rifles I’ve been ignoring for the past month. I only got one of them done since I ran out of balsa….measure twice, still don’t have enough for a project. Will try and get the second one done tomorrow after I pick up some more wood from the store
Like all living things, humans are bioluminescent (meaning we glow) – We glow brightest during the afternoon. - weird, interesting & funny facts
i’ve been staring at this for like 5 minutes. so.. what. i don’t think people glow. but this is telling me that we actually emit visible light.. especially in the afternoon?? am i reading this right or what
"all living things" plants. when do the plants glow
science side of tumblr pls
I’m not from the science side of tumblr, but here’s the answer anyways:
Basically, all living things are bioluminescent because every living thing has chemical reactions occurring in their cells. The energy created from these chemical reactions physically manifests as light, thus… all living things naturally glow.
However, this glow cannot be seen by the human eye. In fact, the only way they’ve ever captured this light is through special cameras. Using these ultra special cameras, they’ve imaged subjects’ bodies over 24 hour periods. It has been found out that humans emit the most of this glow during the afternoon (about 4 PM), it is the weakest in the morning (about 10 AM), and the brightest light is emitted from the cheeks, neck, and forehead.
The light is about a thousand times weaker than what humans can perceive.
Basically, it’s a side effect of metabolic reactions. It’s been suspected that humans are bioluminescent for years, but they weren’t able to confirm it until recently thanks to technology and a man named Masaki Kobayashi from the Tohoku Institute of Technology.
10/10 time to answer
you are now offiicially from the science side of tumblr.
and thank you
this is so cool
thank you, I thought this was a spoof fact upon first reading but turns out it’s real
Isn’t it amazing how nobody ever listens to Elrond
Elrond’s like that one guy in all the movies and shit who’s just ‘don’t do the thing’ and everyone else is just ‘Shut the fuck up. What do you know?!’ and then later on it turns out they shouldn’t have done the thing..
Elrond would survive a horror movie
Elrond has already survived several horror movies.
Elrond is Cassandra

I’m done, I’m done, I’m so fucking done
I already knew that that one manager was a petty twit, but I am just SO FUCKING DONE. Ok, I work for my family’s store. As such, I’ve been stuck here for flipping ever and as a result get stuck as a manager and have to open and close the store. This one petty bitch, who from here out will be called Suzy, just escalated this into fucking war. Suzy likes to take vacation time, in fact she just got back from a 2 week vacation last month that practically killed half the store because she didn’t feel the need to tell anyone she was going so half the store was out for the same 2 weeks. Long story short. Living. Hell. for of course the busiest part of our season.
Since my family owns the store, we get to go on little “vacations” maybe once a year for a couple days, that are in reality business meetings and we might get to stay an extra day or two and have some semblance of fun.
The dates for these business conventions are fucking posted on the front page of the business website that you have to log into maybe 15 times a day- so don’t you dare tell me that you had “absolutely no idea that we were planning on taking OUR ONE VACATION A FUCKING YEAR”. Because of course the whole reason she brings this up, is because she wants to go on yet another 2 week vacation, starting the day of the show. And her “compromise” is that she would be willing to wait until the day AFTER the convention before she would leave. (and what is this massively important vacation that she is totally unwilling to change- no, not hotel reservations or something actually binding- camping….flipping camping. something that you literally could do whenever the hell you wanted to because there IS NOTHING BINDING ABOUT IT
So her way to be a big mature about this is to quit. A week before we are supposed to go. And leave us with no other managers to cover our shifts with. Because Suzy is a petty bitch. Never mind that we never get to take off for vacation and always cover for her, never mind that we were PAYING her to stay at home for a week to clean out her house when her basement flooded. Never mind that we fired our other manager because you didn’t like him. Nope, none of that matters because we asked you to wait a week to go camping and you decided to screw us.

This was recorded by the Portsmouth Sinfonia in an experiment where all the members of the orchestra would swap instruments with each other and attempt to play them to the best of their ability.
favorite things about this
- literally all the brass starts to get the hang of it and then the crescendos happen and everyone is like FUCK FUCK FUCK??? FUCK. JUST. BLOW RLY HARD.
- the strings are lazy but also the same. like u can tell a lot of the ppl w/ the stringed instruments may already basically know how to play stringed instruments. like there’s definitely a section at the beginning where you hear a good portion going “oh yeah this is like. a smaller/bigger version of what i do.”
- all you hear of any woodwinds is just “pffffttt??? pFFFTTTT???? PFFFFFTTTT I SAID PFFFFTTTT!!!!!” bc woodwinds are fucking HARD and you hear after like the first crescendo half of them just give up. they give up. they’re done. fuck this it tastes weird and my lips hurt.
- that trumpet. that person is fucking TRYING man they fucking GOT this. they may not have figured out notes but they figured out LOUD and they GOT this.
I JUST DIED
I SEARCHED THIS POST FOR AGES OH MY GOD
