Welcome! I post a mixture of weather and fandom posts (Sherlock/Doctor Who) and answer weather questions. Expect bouts of fangirling, surges of science, high levels of snark, and a general abuse of tags.






Band snapchats are the best snapchats

Godzilla Eats Las Vegas is best band piece

Please tell me this isn’t the flute part

Its piccolo

oh lord!

  #I know this piece!    #and it's awesome    #isn't there a bit with flashlights    #eric whitacre    #is the best    #I love his music so much    #LOOK UP CLOUDBURST    #the band version    #do it and weep    #music  





  #JESUS CHRIST THIS IS NOT A DRILL    #SEASON FINALE TWO PARTER DIRECTING HE IS    #REDUCED TO CAPSLOCK YODA SPEAK I AM    #!!!    #doctor who    #peter jackson    #oh my gooooooooood  
  #YES    #monty python  


if you ever think about sending me an ask and decide not to cause “oh she doesn’t care” or “oh I don’t want to bother her” literally I’m the loneliest piece of shit you can find and would still love you if you sent me the word nuzzle over and over again

  #the only reason i will not respond to an ask is if it's unforgiveably rude or if i lost it    #which has happened    #ask me anything guys    #i'm a talkative person    #and i will probably answer far more thoroughly than necessary

There are people who say, ‘I’ll never use this math, these trig identities’ from 10th or 11th grade, or maybe you never learned them.
Here’s the catch: whether or not you ever again use the math that you learned in school, the act of having learned the math established a wiring in your brain that didn’t exist before.
And it’s the wiring in your brain that makes you the problem solver… even if you don’t want to become a scientist, the minimum you should ask of yourself –demand of yourself– is that you become scientifically literate… and mathematically literate.
Because therein are the engines of problem solving in the world.
Neil deGrasse Tyson (aka, the quote I recite to myself every time I question why I’m integrating, over and over again, the area under the rotating washer around the x-axis)
  #THIS    #the act of problem solving builds neurological pathways in your brain that improve your ability to problem solve in general!    #your brain has benefitted from your so called useless math classes    #and the essay writing you were forced to complete    #educators don't just sit around and try to come up with ways to make their students' lives miserable    #it's based on actual scientific research you numpties    #math    #education    #cool it airstyle  
NASA: provides troves of data about the moon that couldn't be made up
NASA: provides images of it used by technologies that were just being made at the time
NASA: provided thousands of jobs to citizens in the quest to learn about the moon
NASA: uses the very real data acquired from its moon missions to further understand moon formations and satellites like it
NASA: dealt with grueling tests, trials and tribulations to get people on the moon
some conspiracy site you got linked off a youtube vid about aliens: what if he nasa not went not moon?
person: you have a point, this could have all been staged
  #on any given day I'm not sure if I hate moon conspiracists or chemtrail idiots more    #it's a constant underlying rage in my life    #conspiracy theorists    #anti science    #nasa  
default album art
Song: The Music Written on This Dude's Butt
Artist: Hieronymus Bosch
Album: Garden of Earthly Delights
Played: 2,014,790 times.





Luke and I were looking at Hieronymus Bosch’s painting The Garden of Earthly Delights and discovered, much to our amusement, music written upon the posterior of one of the many tortured denizens of the rightmost panel of the painting which is intended to represent Hell. I decided to transcribe it into modern notation, assuming the second line of the staff is C, as is common for chants of this era.

so yes this is LITERALLY the 600-years-old butt song from hell

I can’t NOT reblog a 600 year old butt song from Hell. 

The 600 year old butt song from Hell is back on my dash! Happy day!


  #well damn    #I tried to scroll by    #but the curiosity associated with a hellacious butt song cannot be denied    #how to tag    #uhh    #music  


when McGonagall finds out that Ginny is pregnant, and that the Weasley and Potter bloodlines will converge, she marks on her calender the day the child will turn 11 and that is the day she retires 

  #HEADCANON ACCEPTED    #mcgonagall has a horrifying vision of the Weasley twins combined with James    #and is just like NOPE    #she doesn't need that recipe for disaster    #harry potter  


The most dramatic reaction anyone has ever had to being told they’re a drama queen.

  #SHERLOCK'S FACE    #how DARE you    #such betrayal    #i trusted you john watson    #we'll see who folds your serviettes now    #sherlock
