ever have that feeling where you’re sitting in a lecture or office hours and the professor starts explaining something and you’re trying really hard to focus but then your mind starts wandering and you get stuck in a thought loop of “wait where did i stop paying attention to this”? because it fucking sucks and i can’t keep track of my train of thought anymore. 



"Maybe if you go to bed you’ll feel better in the morning" is literally just the human version of "Have you tried turning it off and back on again?"

what have you done

if it wasn’t for the intentionally shitty filter, this would probably be the best picture in our 1+ year of dating, so i thought i’d document it.

mmmmmhmmm yup

yo so i’m not a practicing catholic anymore but does anyone wanna have an easter egg hunt on the 20th where we put those lil minature airplane-sized alcohol bottles in eggs and hide them around the house?



A couple months ago I shared some GIFs of invisible things, and I finally got around to putting them together in this video:

When light travels through areas of different air density, it bends. You’ve probably noticed the way distant pavement seems to shimmer on a hot day, or the way stars appear to twinkle. You’re seeing light that has been distorted as it passes through varying air densities, which are in turn created by varying temperatures and pressures.

Schlieren Flow Visualization can be used to visually capture these changes in density: the rising heat from a candle, the turbulence around an airplane wing, the plume of a sneeze … even sound.  Special thanks to Mike Hargather, a professor of mechanical engineering at New Mexico Tech, who kindly provided a lot of these videos.

the earth is not flat
the air is not thin

we are constantly wading

going to filter out all emails that don’t say “phone interview” or “you’re hired!” so i stop getting excited every time i see inbox(1).

whenever i try to dress myself, i start to question if i’m afflicted with some sort of disability when it comes to understanding color combinations.

I think the only thing keeping me from a tattoo is the fact that I just wouldn’t stop.

i want one really badly but my issue is that i have no idea what i would want. i was thinking about getting a physics-related one, but i also want something that’s monochrome and mostly fine line work. 

i had a dream that i got a slice of pie tattooed on my inner upper arm.
