Twelfth Doctor + chalk
some weird fetishes right there
so turns out the guy who discovered uranus originally wanted to name it “george”
just. imagine a planet called George
mercury venus earth jupiter saturn GEORGE
i bet the response that got the planet its current name was “you can shove that up your ass”
Fun Science Partybreaker: It was almost called The Georgian Sidis, after the king, calling it just George was considered disrespectful to the king.
Ever wonder how a Jellyfish “stings”? Turns out, it’s actually like a Needle. Check out this awesome graphic that Emily Weddle created from the latest episode of Smarter Every Day.
As you can see in the graphic, a Jellyfish actually stings you with needles. The process in the photo spans the time of approximately 20 milliseconds. If you watch the video I incorporate timing data so you can perform measurements.
What’s so cool about this is scientists don’t really understand HOW they nematocyst fire. They’re pretty confident that they’re triggered by mechancial contact on the outside, of the tentacle… but they’re NOT sure how the stinger “inflates”. Dr. Seymour thinks it’s too fast to be osmotic. There’s obviously a channel somehow that opens and creates flow and pressure into the organelle. I bet it’s some kind of REALLY quick chemical process.
I think we’re going to call graphics like this “Smarter Every Day InfoGifs”. Emily came up with that name, I can’t take credit for it! Here’s her webpage.
I was tagged by wayward-daughterrr to do this, and I’m afraid, but I’ll do it anyway.
#1:Always post rules!
#2: Always answer questions the person who tagged you asked, and write 11 new ones.
#3: Tag 11 people and link them to the post.
#4: Actually tell them you tagged them.
Okay, let’s do this!
1. Johnlock/Sherlolly/Sheriarty/Adlock ?
I never thought about that, really. Don’t get me wrong, I love Sherlock (as any of my friends or family members will tell you), but I never thought about shipping them.
However, I’d go with Adlock probably. Johnlock doesn’t seem like it would work out for them, Sherlolly is just because I could never see Sherlock caring about Molly (or anybody, for that matter), and Sheriarty would be just weird — they’d probably fight and bicker like an old abusive couple. However, Sherlock seemed to have a crush on Adler and she did fall for him (although they both pretended that they didn’t care in the end). That would my best bet, but I don’t have an OTP ;)
2. watching all episodes of tv show at once (like there’s no tomorrow) / watch slowly savouring each episode
Oh, it depends. I like marathoning a TV show if I can (say, summer break or not a busy period in school), but if I can’t, I just watch it episode-by-episode as I can. Also, if it’s Sherlock, I’ll go and refresh bbc.co.uk until it’s available on iPlayer.
3. where are u from ?
Croatia, also known as, the place where they shoot Game of Thrones (I think just King’s Landing and a few other places, but I’m not sure. Google it for more info, I’m too lazy). If you want detailes, I’m from Slavonia, The Unexicting Part.
4. cats / dogs
Both. I love little cuddly aww cats and huge cuddly aww dogs (I have two gorgeous old labradors [one is black, and the other is yellow], I love them so much <3)
5. Fav (at the moment) tv show
Hard to pick just one, but I love Sherlock, Doctor Who and Game of Thrones. I just love them.
6. otp ?
7. notp ?
My OTP would probably be myself and KitKat’s. (yes I don’t have an OTP don’t kill me), and my NOTP would be… idk, Sherlestrade (yes, I just made that up, don’t slay me while I’m sleeping)
8. What is your favorite quote?
At some point, you just pull off the Band-Aid and it hurts, but then it’s over and you’re relieved.
John Green, Looking for Alaska
One never notices what has been done; one can only see what remains to be done.
I like a lot of quotes actually, I’m a quotey-guy, so you can find my quote library here: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s282/sh/95920659-84f8-4269-b6af-83fabd07cc47/d99455e4e07d4d65bd0817ae3901644c
And yes, feel free to use the quotes, I don’t care.
9. Do ppl from ur school follow u on tumblr?
Hopefully, and probably, they don’t.
10. Do u want to be tumblr famous ?
Nah, not really, although I wouldn’t mind. If you like my stuff, that’s cool, if you don’t, that’s also cool. EVERYTHING IS AWESOMEEEE EVERYTHING IS COOOL WHEN YOU’RE PART OF TEAM
11. One random fact about you
I just started singing Everything is awesome.
Want more random facts? I own two copies of Looking for Alaska, neither of which I bought — the first I got was at the redditgifts Christmas Exchange, and the second was a prize for a school competition in English. I am currently eating some cheap cereal called Choco Rings and wondering about who the fuck should I tag.
Okay, my questions.
1. What’s your first memory of the Internet?
2. What are your favourite things?
3. Favourite TV shows?
4. Your one true pairing, if you ship people.
5. Your NOTP, if you ship people.
6. What song is playing in your head right now?

10. Best/funniest/awesomest tumblr you follow?

Sorry for breaking the rules.
