Dang. I know many of the people on this page, and I am not a paleobiologist nor a geochemist.

Winter is coming in the land of Ice & Fire. The Holuhraun eruption site is still magical under the snow.

"It was 10:02 AM local time when the sound emerged from the island of Krakatoa, which sits between Java and Sumatra in Indonesia. It was heard 1,300 miles away in the Andaman and Nicobar islands (“extraordinary sounds were heard, as of guns firing”); 2,000 miles away in New Guinea and Western Australia (“a series of loud reports, resembling those of artillery in a north-westerly direction”); and even 3,000 miles away in the Indian Ocean island of Rodrigues, near Maldives (“coming from the eastward, like the distant roar of heavy guns.”1) In all, it was heard by people in over 50 different geographical locations, together spanning an area covering a thirteenth of the globe.

"Think, for a moment, just how crazy this is. If you’re in Boston and someone tells you that they heard a sound coming from New York City, you’re probably going to give them a funny look. But Boston is a mere 200 miles from New York. What we’re talking about here is like being in Boston and clearly hearing a noise coming from Dublin, Ireland. Travelling at the speed of sound (766 miles or 1,233 kilometers per hour), it takes a noise about 4 hours to cover that distance. This is the most distant sound that has ever been heard in recorded history."

"What do you play? The Clarinet, you? I play the fucking HAMMER"

I MEAN THE OTHER PLAYER’S FACES THO

the dude in the back knew it was coming, the other dude forgot

Mahler 6!!
When we played this at CMU, everyone was pretty prepared. But when I heard the L.A. Philharmonic play this a few years ago, I was in one of the seats behind the stage, and there was this woman in the front row of those seats who clearly had no idea that there was a hammer involved. When it happened, she jumped at least a foot in her seat, and it was pretty hilarious.

Welp! Both literaryartisan and walterwhiteprivilege tagged me in this meme, so I guess it’s time to do the thing!

Rules: Find out what characters share the same personality type (x) as you here and list the characters that you find relevant below. Then tag five friends and let them know you tagged them!

Depending on which website I take the test from, I vary between INTP, INTJ, and INFP. I think the description for INTP describes me best, though, and this list of characters has a disproportionate number of my favorites, so we’re gonna go with that.

I’m taking “I find relevant” to mean “characters I like from things I know” in this context.

  • Armin Arlert from Attack on Titan
  • Belle from Beauty and the Beast
  • Dr. Egon Spengler from Ghostbusters
  • Sollux Captor from Homestuck
  • Kutner from House
  • Adrian Monk from Monk
  • Linus van Pelt from Peanuts
  • Peter Parker/Spider-Man
  • Bruce Banner/The Incredible Hulk
  • Donatello from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
  • EVE from WALL-E
  • Dr. Manhattan from Watchmen

Saltscapes San Francisco Bay Cris Benton

Benton’s images allow us to slip our earthly bonds and see the world from new heights, his aerial views offering a fresh perspective on familiar landscapes. Surprising and sublime, Saltscapes can be enjoyed equally as a collection of art photography and a portrait of ecological transformation and resilience.”

I object to the phrasing “just before an earthquake,” though. This wasn’t predicting anything. The ball only drops after the earthquake has started. It just picks up the first wave arrivals, which may be too small for people to feel, and indicates that something is happening before the larger and more damaging waves arrive. In that way, it’s actually a very crude early warning system, a 2000-year predecessor to the systems in development today.

I’m not sure if that ask posted or not, because tumblr mobile is being wonky, but
I actually live Antioch so I’m fine. How about you? Are you alright?

Aaand now I’m not sure if my response posted or not! Dammit, Tumblr!

I’m so glad you’re ok! (Also, sorry I…

Oh good! Glad you’re okay too! ; v ; And don’t worry about it. I lived in Vallejo right before I moved to Antioch so you’re not totally off.
Yeah it wasn’t until I actually looked up the news did I find out just how big it was.
Well, I gotta go help my sister move into her campus apartment so I’ll stop bothering you about the earthquake too. e v e Thanks for checking up on me!

I assure you, talking to me about earthquakes is never ever bothering me!

While I am posting handwritten things…
