That doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate it.
There are so many Christmas pictures in my head, WHEN AM I SUPPOSED TO DRAW THEM ALL?
Ladies and gentlemen… Andrew Scott.
The photo above is the closest humanity has ever come to creating Medusa.
If you were to look at this, you would die instantly. End of story.
The image is of a reactor core lava formation in the basement of the Chernobyl nuclear plant. It’s called the Elephant’s Foot and weighs hundreds of tons, but is only a couple meters across.
Oh, and regarding the Medusa thing? This picture was taken through a mirror around the corner of the hallway. Because the wheeled camera they sent up to take pictures of it was destroyed by the radiation.
I wonder if they could get pictures in colour now or maybe get an accurate heat reading off of that thing, if it’s still all there.
It’s crazy to think that something can be that strong that it would kill you by just looking at it. Though it’s understandable. I’d like a heat reading off of it.
Oh my god
I have such a science boner right now
Do you know how fucking dense that must be to weigh hundreds of tons?
Pretty fucking dense.
I found this video for anyone who wants to see a video of the thing (although it’s not the best quality). This thing is a serious monster. I have a little trouble deciphering this Wikipedia article, but from what I gather, this thing weighs 1,200 tons (2,400,000 pounds - a number I cannot even begin to fathom) and is only losing about 22 pounds of uranium per year. It resists its environment and if the shelter is improved, that loss is expected to drop.
I am simply astounded by the sheer power and properties of radiation and nuclear power plants. This is seriously scary stuff. Not to mention its effects on humans. i find deformed humans very, very unnerving. The mutations that radiation cause are the worst, in my opinion, than say, genetic mutations. This video shows some of the mutations from the Chernobyl meltdown (warning: these are very disturbing images, so view at your own risk).
Here’s another website with a collection of Chernobyl pictures, mostly of the building itself (no mutation pictures, so unless you’re upset by major destruction, this is a really cool look-through). This is my favorite picture because it really shows the dripping of the radioactive fuel/debris lava out of the valve. I just find it so absolutely terrifying that something like this could ever happen. Radiation is seriously scary stuff. What I want to know is how they took that picture.
Oh holy shit this is terrifying. The color just makes it worse. It’s like a volcano erupted indoors. Which is probably a pretty accurate analogy, plus tons of radiation to go with it. “”Corium” is only formed during a reactor meltdown as a product of the solid fuel fissioning uncontrollably. This super-hot fuel turns into a liquid and melts its way through steel, concrete, and whatever else that might be in contact with it. So it’s a mixture of fuel and various building materials,” the admin says in the comments.
This article says that Chernobyl will stay radioactive for 100,000 years.
Radiation is just unfathomably scary stuff.
All of this is just so incredibly terrifying and amazing at the same time. Just to think of the things humans are capable of now, and all the various horrible ways everything could go very very wrong if we’re too careless for just a second…
okay yeah fine I didn’t need to sleep tonight anyway ;_;
John this is for you.
My favorite new term is science boner.
(quick draw previews)
crappy phone shots until I get a scanner again
a few more to come tonight if I get around to (rather, feel like) inking the sketches
"How can you read?"
"My mother taught me."
*teeheehee I made a funny
It was just going to be a sketch, I don’t know what happened…
you discover a fanfiction of your favorite character getting group fucked. excited, you click on it, only to discover that the writing is poor and the characterization is terrible.
it is a shitty shitty gang bang.
this should not have made me laugh as hard as i did
imagine john posting a video of sherlock on his blog and saying, “I forgot what his voice sounded like.” and the video is of sherlock just saying, “stop filming, john. stop it.” and john just laughing int he background.
my heart is beating so fast i just googled “how many dogs are there in the world” and an article in 2012 says that there are around 525 million and i can’t believe it that is so many dogs, and so many of them are happy and wagging their tails and they love u and they want 2 give u little puppy kisses and lie in the sun or trot in the snow and they are alive and they make me want to be alive also
