whole oitnb fandom when they found out that there is no ‘Larry’ in season 3
why does no one ever talk about what fire actually is like it’s not a solid, liquid or gas, it’s just kinda there
this is one of the things that have mindfucked me since forever
like what is it
I asked my chemistry teacher this the…
If I may ask, this has boggled me for years: how can you actually tell where it ends? Where does fire stop being fire? Like, can you actually define the line around it, or is it like defining electron orbits, where you have a cloud of probability instead of a nice clean circle?
That’s a very interesting question. I suppose the most ambiguous part of fire is right at the top. I guess fire ends at the part that is no longer plasma. Where there are no ionized molecules. Ionized molecules are going to cling together and interact in a way that gas does not so there is more likely to be a defining line than you might think, at least around the sides. At the top there must be some transition, maybe a gradual one, to the particle- suspended-in-gas state that is smoke.
Hmmm. I’ll think about this some more and do a full post on it.
"No homo" cries the team at the dig site. The head archaeologist sinks to his knees, sobbing. He has dedicated his entire career to the pursuit of homo habilis, an important part of the hominid evolutionary line. All his work led up to this archaeological dig site. But now, his whole life has been for nothing. There is no homo….there is only Australopithecus.
I read this to a group of archaeologists and they completely lost their shit
