Suspect someone at #kaplan (or the #lsat) is a #gameofthrones / #got fan. (That’s a fun thought experiment. What sort of chores would Joffrey be given?)

i’ve been trying to explain this sketch to people for years

there is literally no way to explain this sketch it’s just a thing you have to see and even then I’m not sure why it’s so funny

LMFAO what is going oooooon??????????????

On life, I’m crying teaaaars rn😂😂

Mmm watcha say

I guess it helps a little to know they were spoofing Orange County? But, even so. NEVER FORGET…

WHY AM I NOT MADE OF MONEY no I’d never treat them properly plus am soon moving back cross country but

oh my god

kaiju headed cane prototype??? 

I am chronically tumblr mia because school/work/lsat/inability to be active on more than one social media platform at a time but

fdg

please tell me there has been discussion about how and why hermann would have had and used a kaiju cane, including but not limited to newton giving it to him then being surprised when he used it (a too short kaiju cane gj newton)

Wideroe’s important innovation was the use of a relatively small voltage to produce increasing acceleration. “This new idea,” says [Ernest Orlando] Lawrence, “immediately impressed me as the real answer which I had been looking for to the technical problem of accelerating positive ions, and … I then and there made estimates of the general features of a linear acccelerator for protons in the energy range of above one million [volts].”

Lawrence’s calculations momentarily discouraged him. The accelerator tube would be “some meters in length,” too long, he thought, for the laboratory. (Linear accelerators today range in length up to two miles.) “And accordingly, I asked myself the question, instead of using a large number of cylindrical electrodes in a line, might it not be possible to use two electrodes over and over again by sending the positive ions back and forth through the electrodes by some sort of appropriate magnetic field arrangement.” The arrangement he conceived was a spiral. “It struck him almost immediately,” Alvarez wrote later, “that one might ‘wind up’ a linear accelerator into a spiral accelerator by putting it in a magnetic field,” because the magnetic lines of force in such a field guide the ions. Given a well-timed push, they would swing around in a spiral, the spiral becoming larger as the particles accelerated and were thus harder to confine. Then, making a simple calculation for magnetic-field effects, Lawrence uncovered an unsuspected advantage to using a spiral accelerator: in a magnetic field slow particles complete their smaller circuits in exactly the same time faster particles complete their larger circuits, which meant they could all be accelerated together, efficiently, which each alternating push.

Exuberantly Lawrence ran off to tell the world. An astronomer who was still awake at the faculty club was drafted to check his mathematics. He shocked one of his graduate students the next day by bombarding him with the mathematics of spiral accelerations but mustering no interest whatever in his thesis experiment. “Oh, that,” Lawrence told the questioning stuent. “Well, you know as much onthat now as I do. Just go ahead on your own.” A faculty wife crossing the campus the next evening heard a startling “I’m going to be famous!” as the young experimentalist burst pasther on the walk.

Lawrence then traveled East to a meeting of the American Physical Society and discovered that not many of his colleagues agreed. To less inspired mechanicians the scattering problem looked insurmountable. […moredissentetc…]

A distinguished experimentalist from the University of Hamberg, Otto Stern, a Breslau Ph.D., forty-one that yer and on his way to a Nobel Prize (though Lawrence would beat him), gave Lawrence the necessary boost. Sometime after the Christmas holidays the two men dined out in San Francisco, a pleasant ferry ride across the unbridged bay. Lawrence rehearsed again his practiced story of particles spinning to boundless energies in a confining magnetic field, but instead of coughing politely and changing the subject, as so many other colleagues had done, Stern produced a Germanic duplicate of Lawrence’s original enthusiasm and barked at him to leave the restaurant immediately and go to work. Lawrence waited in decency until morning, cornered one of his graduate students and committed him to the project as soon as he had finished studying for his Ph.D. exam.

Lawrence kickstarting big machine physics in the USA, from “The Making of the Atomic Bomb” by Richard Rhodes.

I’m cracking up because:

1) “Oh, that”
2) Cute-ass scientists, “I’m going to be famous!!”
3) “the Germanic duplicate” what does that even look like

HIKE. Addie finished at the groomer much earlier than expected, so I decided to go for it. #hiking #dogsofinstagram 

I am dressed incorrectly for this, however,  I AM wearing pants.  (at Fremont Older Open Space Preserve)

Do you think I need more #hats? 

(This is a trick question. The correct answer is, your opinion doesn’t matter. I always need more hats.)

1) can’t… help… it… 

2) Sounds like a challenge. Watch me find a way!! (My pencil note in the second reads, “then it runs? could be broken… ” )

My happy place. 

I don’t worry about what she’s thinking, or will say, or if she cares. Just feed, walk, groom, love. She permits moderating cuddling, especially on lunch break naps when it’s much needed, and loves to hold hands, pawing incessantly until we do. 5 1/2 years old and she still has a puppy’s delight to see me and others. If you aren’t her best friend after meeting her, you’re probably a cat (not a cat person; even people who don’t care for dogs have been charmed) and she loves you anyway ;) . Good size - - about 37 lbs, not small and yappy and underfoot, but I can pick her up if needed. … Ok she does need a haircut. #addie #dogsofinstagram #mylove #wheatenterrier 

(I gotta figure out how to get to dog immortality, because putting down the family dog I hadn’t lived with for years, a couple of years ago, almost killed me.)  (at Home)

This website is like a suicide hotline but with text chat instead.  I would appreciate it if you guys helped spread the word.

Guys, seriously. Signal boost. I needed this the other night, and a few weeks ago I was talking with someone who needed it. This is the best freaking thing ever. 

Always.

I am so glad I found this. I hate calling hotlines. this is perfect, everyone must know.

You have this one life. How do you wanna spend it? Apologizing? Regretting? Questioning? Hating yourself? Dieting? Running after people who don’t see you? Be brave. Believe in yourself. Do what feels good. Take risks. You have this one life. Make yourself proud. (via moaka)
