My absolutely wonderful old friend gave me the best gift ever today, its a shard of Moldavite, I have always wanted a space rock and it has been the most serendipitous past could of days and i feel so lucky to have such an amazing friend who is so kind and so like minded <3 im sooo happyy!!!
"One look at Moldavite and there’s no question it is a stone of greatness, etherically carved of spiritual fire and destined for purpose. This mysterious green talisman is star-born, formed from nature’s violent meteoric impact with Mother Earth. Etched by force and flame as it fell from the heavens Moldavite returned to the earth’s surface transformed, a glass of amazing delicacy and grace ready to serve humankind"
These astronaut photos show Patagonian glaciers as seen from space. Glaciers form over many years when snow accumulates in larger amounts than it melts or sublimates. Over time the snow collects and is compacted into a dense ice which slowly flows downslope due to gravity. Many of the dark streaks in the photos are moraines, sediment formations deposited by the movement of the ice. Lateral moraines often line the edges of a glacier, and when two or more glaciers flow together, like in the lower left corner of both photos, the lateral moraines of each of the glaciers combine to form a medial moraine running through the combined glacial flow.

1. Make sure you own a nice bed.
2. Sleep in it frequently.
3. Remember how nice it feels to flip over your pillow to the cooler side.
4. Check your pulse and hum along to the rhythm because it is music.
5. Write clear and make a lot of spelling errors. Get the poison out and don’t worry about it being neat.
6. If you can, do not shut people out. You will have good days and they should see them.
7. If you feel overwhelmed, go outside and scream. Find a nice empty park in the middle of the night and scream as loud as you can until your throat is bleeding. The world wants to hear you.
8. Let yourself fall in love. Believe it or not, there are people out there who want your blacks and blues.
9. Keep waking up.
10. Keep waking up.
11. Keep waking up. Maybe with someone next to you.
A beautifully animated description of what we know about the creation of the Universe, so far.
We can see most of the how, though who knows how long this can last. Does the universe build in enough time for the beings that study it, to reveal why it happened? We’ll see I guess. :D
another comic about depression even though I’m not depressed at the moment by Roto
I did that thing again where I try and process really scary and emotional feelings via shitty comics
300 notes man…
HOW CAN WE BE HAPPY ?
Once a group of 50 people was attending a seminar.
Suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity. He started giving each one a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.
Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.
At the end of 5 minutes no one could find their own balloon.
Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it.
Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.
The speaker began— exactly this is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is.
Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness.
And this is the purpose of human life.
Nature is full of surprising behaviors. If one imagines putting a bucket of water on a rotating plate and spinning it, one would expect the water’s free surface to take on a curved, axially symmetric shape. The photos above are from a similar experiment, but instead of the entire container rotating, only the bottom plate spins. Surprisingly, the water’s surface does not remain symmetric around the axis of rotation. Instead, the water forms stable polygon shapes that rotate slower than the spinning plate. As the plate’s rotation speed increases, the number of corners in the polygon increases. Shapes up to a hexagon were observed in the experiment. Photos of the set-up and more experimental results are available, as is the original research paper. Symmetry breaking and polygons can also be found in hydraulic jumps and bumps, liquid sheets, and planetary polar vortices. (Photo credit: T. Jansson et al.; research paper)
