Scientists from MIT Developed a Trillion frames per second slow motion camera that can show light moving through a bottle. Ramesh Raskar presents femto-photography - For comparison, the imaging of a bullet captured at this many frames per second would last a year as explained in thepresentation by Professor Ramesh Raskar of MIT.
^ what you have witnessed above is light travelling in slow motion.
OOOOOOOOOH MY GOD
I have the weirdest erection right now.
- She made reading a trend. One day everyone was collecting Pogs or Beanie Babies, the next, we were all deciding whether we were more like Harry or Ron, Hermione or Lavendar. For the first time, everyone seemed to have read the same books and had things to say about them. Though reading could be…
I can’t scroll past this without feeling guilty.
what do you do when you don’t have one? …then you look in the mirror and tell yourself how beautiful you are.

In addition to essentially inventing the computer, Alan Turing also broke the German Enigma Code during World War II which paved the way for the D-Day invasion. The man was a hyper-genius. I’ve read descriptions of his work by mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose. He’s been a hero of mine ever since.
The level of thought required to come up with the stuff he came up with is totally beyond my comprehension. I actually did not even know about his orientation until much later. He was prosecuted and ordered to undergo chemical castration. Soon thereafter, he committed suicide by eating a cyanide-laced apple.
The government forced him to take estrogen as a punishment (or “cure”?). He began to develop breasts and other side effects.
He committed suicide by biting into a cyanide laced apple. This is supposedly the inspiration for the name/logo of Apple computers.
and old Apple computers
the apple was a rainbow
Reblogging again because more people need to know about Turing dammit.
So, I got a tattoo. And I should probably explain a bit about it. Around this time in 2004, I fell in love with a band that changed everything for me. They taught me to not give a damn, to believe in my goals, and to go after whatever I wanted to. Most importantly, they taught me to be myself. They were there when I was bullied, when I self-harmed, and was just plain hated on. But they were also there for when I graduated, found my place among friends, and finally felt comfortable. I know I wouldn’t be here without them. It seems only fitting that 10 years later I make my first tattoo commemorative to them. From the first album that exposed me to their music, from a song that encouraged me to not give up. Thank you for EVERYTHING, Green Day. Here’s to another 10 years, and so on, and so forth. “It’s not over ‘til you’re underground. It’s not over before it’s too late.”
