As close as you will ever be to a nuclear explosion
THIS IS FUCKING TERRIFYING
No thank you.
The columns of smoke in the foreground are telephone poles boiling
This is way cooler to look at than it should be
Science side of Tumblr would like to add:
Heat is generally transmitted in 3 forms: conduction, convection, radiation.
The fact that the telephone poles and wires are boiling away well before the shockwave hits them indicates that the heat from the explosion has not reached them by convection (much slower than the speed of sound) or by conduction (at best, comparable to the speed of sound), but purely by radiation. In other words: the explosion is bright enough to boil everything.

Dead End, Keith Alexander
Screenshots of today. Thayd.
Wow. Not sure how much photoshop work was done but, that is NOT the game I see.
I need to upgrade my hardware.

Anti Abortion protestors getting run over by a car when they try and block it’s path
When did abortion suddenly become so commonly okay among people?
I guess deciding your baby’s future for them is suddenly okay now. Let’s go ahead and just not give them a chance to make their own decisions.
Since fucking FOREVER.
Actually this anti-abortion thing was invented by xenophobic racists and by male doctors wanting to oust midwife competition and cement their monopoly on healthcare provision. Abortion was outlawed because of the fear that immigrant children would outnumber white, Anglo-Saxon children (“race suicide”). The first British law against abortion was in 1803, the first US law against abortion didn’t appear until 1821. It’s almost like…no one gave a shit until the “wrong kind” of people might be making a living and the “wrong kind” of people were having more babies than the “right kind”.

Jacob’s Well - Wimberley, Texas
hey kids let’s all go jump into the pits of hell
This is the scariest thing I’ve ever seen.
People have actually died in Jacob’s Well, but not just from jumping, you’re too buoyant to really go down far.
But Jacob’s Well draws a lot of scuba divers, and some of them have gotten lost and run out of air. Some of the bodies have never even been found, because the underground river that feeds Jacob’s Well is so complex. I find that terrifying.
I’ve been there. You have to be careful because coming back up from too far and you get stuck under rocks trying to find the surface.
Wow look at that giant hole of NOPE.
I love things like this.
Sasha vs. Q-tips [symphonicotter]
Another cat that loves q-tips. Ours will wait in the bathroom sink after ever shower hoping one will fall out of the cabinet. They are her favorite toy.
Also Known As: Agent A3
Occupation: FCON liaison for the Black Hoods, cleanup crew and general janitor of body parts
Height: 7” or 2.15 m
Appearance: As pictured. Vitalus tanks include his shoulders and half of his forearms. Has plugs running down his spine for Vitalus injection purposes. Pre-Contagion his hair was dark brown as well as his skin; side effects of the Contagion turned his skin a sickly dark purple and the Vitalus serum turned most of his hair white-grey.
History: Grew up on Grismara in an upper middle class family and lived with his parents with no real aspirations or goals until the Contagion broke out. Shot both his Ravenous parents and his elder sister and found a group of non-infected Mordesh he traveled around with until the Exile fleet started smuggling survivors through the Dominion blockade. Did odd jobs here and there until joining the Black Hoods.
Associates: Some nerdlord named Pam.
Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Motivations: Killing time. Before the Contagion he had no aspirations and the disease only made that worse.
Disposition: Apathetic and leaning towards the pessimistic side. Surprised if situations go well and easily pleased. Opens up very quickly to people who are kind or polite to him.
Outlook: Bleak. Doesn’t really believe the Nexus settlement project will succeed or that his people will ever be cured. As far as he’s concerned, he’s a walking extinct species.
Sexuality: Generally uninterested although anyone is fair game.
Negative Personality Traits: Overly factual, know-it-all tendencies, sardonic and a great capacity for irrational judgement, fear and/or grudges. Penchant for cruelty. Overly self-conscious of his physical appearance and condition.
Positive Personality Traits: Follows through, unfazed by the craziest shit, calm and patient. Likes giving advice especially if proven correct. Enjoys a good time and normally accepting of all.
Likes: A semblance of intelligence in others. Colouring books and puzzles. Yeti. Easy and quick assignments. Hanging with non-Mordesh because the angsting gets tiresome.
Dislikes: Vapid people. Pretentious people. Victor Lazarin. Having to deal with Ravenous in any capacity — he likes to pretend they don’t exist. By extension, he doesn’t like being reminded of his own condition. Soap operas.
Think I’m going to have to roll a toon on the RP server and join in on all these amazing posts in wildstar tag.
