Bad, Facts, and Friends: adenas-el-amin: facts-i-just-made-up: gabriel-patches-titanfeather: sixpenceee: These swimming pools with black tiles are my aesthetic.  Make the black tiles out of that black material that absorbs all light and swim over the void. Fun fact about Vantablack- Because it absorbs all light, it heats up very fast. If exposed to direct sunlight, it takes in all the UV and heat and contains them, and can reach heats well over 212°F, the boiling point of water. So if you did coat the pool in that material, the water would boil as soon as the sun touched it, killing everyone swimming in it. But that’s not all. The flash boiling of an entire pool of chlorinated water would release the chlorine as gas, which would kill everyone within a 200ft radius of the pool. And it doesn’t end there. The release of chlorine gas combined with the heat of the black tiles would be more than sufficient to fuse the boiled hydrogen ions with the chlorine, creating an explosive reaction with the nitrogen in the air. So shortly after everyone in the pool boils and everyone around the pool dies of chlorine gas poisoning, the region would explode with the force of a small atomic bomb (8kt for a pool like those pictured above), leveling about 50 city blocks. You’d think that would be bad enough, but get this- Such chemical explosions expel gamma rays. Gamma rays ionize hematite, which is the mineral from which the black material mentioned is made. This creates Scopohyoscpnol, a compound known as “The Zombie Drug” because it essentially erases the brain and induces cannibalistic tendencies in its victim. It can be transmitted through saliva, infecting all who are bitten within hours. So basically, if you did have Vantablack tiles in your pool, you would boil your friends, poison your neighbors, nuke your city, and condemn the globe to a zombie plague. But to be fair, it would look pretty cool. username. read the username.

America, Bodies , and Food: did you know? Harvard has a pigment library thait stores old pigment sources, like the ground shells of now-extinct insects poisonous metals, and wrappings from Egyptian mummies, to preserve the origins of the world's rarest colors. 2109 cr Green 1003* #1065 1067 ed Oxide ellow Oohre 897 Tellow Oahre talio s Coulston, Reichard Coula PHOTO: HARVARD ART MUSEUMS/FASTCODESIGN DIDYOUKNOWBLOG.COM re-pu-ta-tion: zigster-ao3: did-you-kno: Harvard has a pigment library that stores old pigment sources, like the ground shells of now-extinct insects, poisonous metals, and wrappings from Egyptian mummies, to preserve the origins of the world’s rarest colors. A few centuries ago, finding a specific color might have meant trekking across the globe to a mineral deposit in the middle of Afghanistan. “Every pigment has its own story,” Narayan Khandekar, the caretaker of the pigment collection, told Fastcodesign. He also shared the stories of some of the most interesting pigments in the collection. Mummy Brown “People would harvest mummies from Egypt and then extract the brown resin material that was on the wrappings around the bodies and turn that into a pigment. It’s a very bizarre kind of pigment, I’ve got to say, but it was very popular in the 18th and 19th centuries.” Cadmium Yellow “Cadmium yellow was introduced in the mid 19th century. It’s a bright yellow that many impressionists used. Cadmium is a heavy metal, very toxic. In the early 20th century, cadmium red was introduced. You find these pigments used in industrial processes. Up until the 1970s, Lego bricks had cadmium pigment in them.” Annatto“The lipstick plant—a small tree, Bixa orellana, native to Central and South America—produces annatto, a natural orange dye. Seeds from the plant are contained in a pod surrounded with a bright red pulp. Currently, annatto is used to color butter, cheese, and cosmetics.” Lapis Lazuli“People would mine it in Afghanistan, ship it across Europe, and it was more expensive than gold so it would have its own budget line on a commission.” Dragon’s Blood“It has a great name, but it’s not from dragons. [The bright red pigment] is from the rattan palm.” Cochineal“This red dye comes from squashed beetles, and it’s used in cosmetics and food.” Emerald Green “This is made from copper acetoarsenite. We had a Van Gogh with a bright green background that was identified as emerald green. Pigments used for artists’ purposes can find their way into use in other areas as well. Emerald green was used as an insecticide, and you often see it on older wood that would be put into the ground, like railroad ties.” Source This is pure alchemy. I love it!  If you know how much I love colors you know how much I’m freaking out right now. I WANT TO BE THERE

80s, Gif, and Growing Up: did you know? didyouknowblog.com You can't sink in quicksand. While it's easy to get stuck in and hard to get out of, it's impossible to sink because it acts as a fluid twice as heavy as water, and you aren't dense enough to go under. It liquifies the more you disturb it, sco as long as you don't panic, you'll only sink to about half your body length Photo Credit: imgbuddy didyouknowblog.com therapybegins: shadowkat678: iretrotech: imperialfistsspacemarine: mojave-red: absorbednebula: mojave-red: kompanie-mutter: keyhollow: perkachow: keyhollow: kokolokos: haywood-you-stop-that: ladyfabulous: did-you-kno: Let’s review. YEP. NOPE. Yuh huh. Nuh uh. Source Growing up in the 80s and early 90s really made quicksand a thing to be feared. Your only real danger from quicksand is getting stuck in a tidal area and drowning when the tide comes in the fear is back There’s also that dry quicksand shit What makes dry quicksand different? It dry idk why you used that Princess Bride gif when that’s clearly lightning sand These people don’t know the difference between Lightning Sand, Pea Sand, Pebble Sand, Drum Sand, Glass Sand, Moist Sand, Shadow Sand, Rice Sand, Fine Sand, Dusty Sand, Chipped Sand, Grit Sand, Crystal Sand, Glow Sand and Scrape Sand.   I’m not even going to try to pretend I know more than half of those Lightning Sand is actually sand that’s been struck by lightning and makes glass. Pea sand is sand that is not quite the size of peas but close. Happens mostly where sandstone cliffs get a lot of upward and sideways winds over thousands of years, breaks nodules off and rolls them into spheres. Pebble sand is irregular shaped grains about the size of pea sand. Drum sand is sand that actually vibrates when you either walk on it or the wind blows on it. The sand dune voice noises you hear are drum sand. Glass sand is sand made from glass fragments. Moist sand is sand that has water under it so you dig down and hit moist sand, it clumps. Shadow sand is sand that is black, usually made from lava flows that have been ground down to pumice. Rice sand is sand that has grains the size of rice grains. Fine sand is the sand you use for hourglasses and the like. Dusty sand is mostly dust with some fine grains, more or less powder. Chipped sand is sand that has chips of rock and other debris in it like sticks and bone. Grit sand is sand that is gritty enough to rub against itself and hear crunching. Crystal sand is sand that is made from quartz or other mineral crystals. Glow sand is yellow uranium sand, was used in Vaseline glass to make it yellow green. Called Vaseline glass because it has a look like it’s Vaseline. That’s the stuff I inhaled. Scrape Sand is sand is any sand being blown around fast enough to scrape paint or skin off something.  I live where there’s a lot of sand.  Reblog for all the various types of sand. You forgot the most deadly sand of all Gotta reblog again for that.

Brains, Children, and Food: True beauty doesn't beg for attention It doesn't care for likes or mentions. It is not quantified by aesthetics. It is a deep and purposeful truth, acknowledged by the soul @chakabars It is from the earth your vessel came, unto the earth it shall return. It is not really yours, your soul just chose to animate it for a while. Made from minerals made from space and stardust, your consciousness born of the conscious universe. So now you exist in this form. But you have always existed in one form and another. You are a spiritual being, so in you being spiritual you are being you. You skin is full of carbon, body full melanin, just like outer space, it's carbon dark out there. Many people who are disconnected from spirit worship carbon fused into diamonds, this is worship of dirt, but not of the earth. You are made of carbon and this fused together to create this capsule where the whole of your human experience is manifested. From the dark came everything, all light was created from this blackness. Yet we worship stones that are fused of minerals, but not human souls that inhabit mineral fusion. Human beings are precious, everyone who is reading this, everyone who has thoughts, internalising this from a type of electrical technology, designed in the image of the mind. We are technology, our brains are electrical, our children are our technology. If we don't give them the space to create, if we don't nurture them beautifully, then we will create technologies that create negativity. And so here is this little technology, planted deeply like a seed. What do we want to grow. Well it depends on what we do everyday as young adults and adults that should grow into elders. But you don't grow wise by burying your head in the sand. Although if you aren't connected to your roots, then you don't have knowledge of how to move forward... If you have no knowledge about the movements of the past. If you don't know your past then your presence in the present is irrelevant. Know yourself and you will pass on knowledge and create history while your spirit is in its element... Soul food. chakabars

Memes, Protein, and Science: Mutasi Gen yan Bisa Tadikan Kita Manusia Super 1. ACTN3 dan varian pelari super Kita semua memiliki gen yang dinamakan ACTN3. Varian dari gen ini dapat membantu tubuh membuat protein spesial yang dinamakan alpha-actinin-3. Protein ini mengendalikan serat otot yang dibutuhkan untuk bergerak dengan cepat. Sebuah studi pada tahun 2008 menemukan bahwa sangat sedikit atlit atau pelari cepat yang memiliki dua salinan ACTN3 yang cacat. Para peneliti pun menjuluki gen tersebut "gen olahraga" 2. hDEC2 dan mutasi tidur super Kebanyakan manusia dewasa membutuhkan waktu tidur sekitar tujuh hingga sembilan jam dalam satu hari. Namun beberapa orang memiliki kemampuan untuk hanya tidur selama empat jam tanpa merasa lelah. Menurut sebuah studi yang dipublikasikan dalam jurnal Science pada tahun 2009, kemampuan untuk pulih kembali dengan istirahat yang sedikit terkait dengan mutasi gen tertentu, salah satunya adalah gen hDEC2. 3) TAS2R38 dan varian perasa super. Sekitar satu dari empat populasi manusia di dunia adalah perasa super. Mereka merasakan makanan lebih intens daripada manusia biasa sehingga lebih sering memasukkan susu dan gula ke dalam kopi pahit dan menghindari alkohol. Para peneliti menduga alasan reaksi intens mereka terhadap rasa telah diprogram di dalam gen, khususnya gen pengecap rasa pahit yang disebut TAS2R38. Varian yang bertanggung jawab untuk perasa super dikenal sebagai PAV, sedangkan varian untuk kemampuan mencicipi di bawah rata-rata disebut dengan AVI. 4. LRP5 dan mutasi yang tidak bisa dipecahkan Sekelompok peneliti telah mengindentifikasikan sebuah mutasi genetik pada gen LRP5 yang mengatur kepadatan mineral tulang. Pada LRP5 bisa membuat tulang beberapa orang menjadi sangat padat sehingga tidak bisa dipecahkan. Sumber: Kompas

Fire, Food, and Fresh: ORGANIC O RGANICOUMA WHAT A 'STOMACH CRACK MEANS ACCORDING TO CHINESE MEDICINE The tongue is the window to the soul… or is it the eyes?! No matter how the saying goes, in Traditional Chinese Medicine aka TCM, your tongue can tell you a LOT about what’s going on inside of your body. I’ll never forget the time my friend was suffering from headaches, nausea & feeling faint for 2 days straight. When I looked at her tongue, it was a deep reddish purple, indicating some serious “liver heat” & “blood stasis.” I immediately made her mung bean broth (which clears heat and toxicity from the body) and had her eat light, cooling foods like celery and watermelon the rest of the week. The tongue pattern we’re looking at today deals with a “stomach crack” down the middle rather than an abnormal color. In TCM, this means 2 things: “stomach yin deficiency” (which I’ll explain) and CHRONIC DEHYDRATION! A tongue with cracks is inadequately moistened and therefore, the whole body and GI tract is also dehydrated (think of the cracks in dessert sand when it hasn’t rained for ages!) The best way to reverse this dehydration is not plain water, but rather mineral-rich liquids such as celery, carrot, and cucumber juice that the body can readily assimilate. Warm soup made with greens, seaweed and root veggies is excellent too. In TCM, warm liquids will soften a hard-dehydrated stomach lining and intestines so that they can start absorbing nutrients and fluids again. Now onto "stomach yin deficiency”: Digestion in TCM is viewed metaphorically as a pot of soup sitting on a fire. Stomach YIN is the pot that holds the food and extracts the nourishment; stomach YANG is the fire that ‘cooks’ the food and fuels metabolism. Stomach yin is nourished when we make the job of extracting nutrients easy. But stomach yin DEFICIENCY develops when we have irregular eating habits, skip meals, eat late at night, eat in a hurry, eat while working or standing up, etc. To work on this “stomach crack” and heal stomach yin deficiency: Eat fresh foods that are LIGHTLY cooked or soups that are SLOW cooked - too much heat too fast (frying, roasting) will eventually deplete the stomach’s yin reserves. blackhealthmatters VIA: @organic_olivia
