supernova2395: madmints: kasaron: edwardspoonhands: hoiplatapolloi: gifsboom: Perfect magnets Fun story: One of the first things I was taught as an astronomy student is that, if you want to be a dick to someone giving a presentation, ask them “and how do the magnetic fields play into this?” and they will invariably say “fuck you I don’t know” because no one understands magnetic fields they are black magic. Originally posted by fencehopping Magnets are pure bullshit. Pure utter bullshit. Electromagnetic forces somehow outstrip gravitic forces in strength by an obscene factor, for no reason I can comprehend and it bothers me. I love magnets One, that gif showing the Curie temperature is really cool. Two, you don’t understand, magnetic fields are the bane of my existance and I have a masters dissertation about them. I studied how magnetic fields develop in low mass stars and every single meeting with my supervisor ended in some conversation about how stupid magnetism is.“Oh yeah and this is effected by the magnetic field strength…”“But why?”“God knows, I don’t have a clue.”Was literally said to me by a professor who has spent 20 years of his life looking at magnetism in stars.ALSO:“Don’t ask why, we don’t know. Maybe magnetism? Who knows anything about magnetism.” - My Stellar Physics professor when asked about certain processes in stellar formation, something he has been studying for 10 years.Like we know so little about that it’s actually funny.: supernova2395: madmints: kasaron: edwardspoonhands: hoiplatapolloi: gifsboom: Perfect magnets Fun story: One of the first things I was taught as an astronomy student is that, if you want to be a dick to someone giving a presentation, ask them “and how do the magnetic fields play into this?” and they will invariably say “fuck you I don’t know” because no one understands magnetic fields they are black magic.

OCD Vampiresomg-humor.tumblr.com: citizen-zero So in lore, vampires have this trait that l've almost never seen used, and that's the fact that vampires are OBSESSED with counting things. Like, the Count on Sesame Street was almost certainly created specifically as a vampire because of this piece of lore Like, I read this vampire book years and years ago that explained that a surefire way to protect yourself from vampires getting into your house was to spread a ton of seeds on your doorst particularly recommended for the purpose. Basically, if you suspected someone to be a vampire, all you had to do was drop a sackful of seeds on the ground in front of them. ep-poppy and mustard seeds were If they didn't immediately start counting them, they were not a vampire However, if they WERE a vampire, they'd be seized with the urge to count all the seeds and they would not budge from that spot until they knew how many seeds there were in total. The point was to keep them there until the sun came up and killed them, because if they hadn't counted all the seeds by sunrise they wouldn't be able to leave. Presumably you could just go about the rest of your evening as normal, though no word on whether it's possible to make them lose count and start over. Having remembered this piece of lore, I want fewer stories about brooding tortured Edward Cullen-esque vampires. I want to start seeing more stories about math nerd vampires Vampire accountants who are an honest company's best asset and a corrupt company's bane because they are frighteningly accurate with the accounts and will not hesitate to blow the whistle on a CEO s you for making the numbers camming money because fuck wrong Vampire cashiers that don't need to look at the register screen because they already mentally calculated your total. 10-items-or-less vampires who know goddamn well you have 20 items in that basket and NO, you cannot just slip in with the rest Vampire math tutors who are constantly in high demand and have to hold lotteries to see who gets to be tutored by them.
