So there is. Good point. Words and shapes following the same design. 14 lines, 14 sides, 14 facets…Oh, my head.  Tetradecagon… think, think, think! Words, letters, numbers, lines!

I love how this post is like “Oh, clean up some of the nastiest, hard to clean shit with coke!” but doesn’t mention “Hey, you actually ingest this stuff that can clean CORRODED CAR BATTERIES.”

Uhg.

Heyyy this is because when you put carbon dioxide to make the carbonated water, you get carbonic acid. Carbonic acid varies in how much the pH is, especially in the different coke products. Strong enough to dissolve rust but not steel or any of the metals mentioned here.

But here’s the thing, carbonic acid is not one of the 6 strong acids. You know what is one of those? Hydrocholric acid. You know where you naturally secrete hydrocholric acid? Your stomach. Hydrochloric acid is some nasty stuff and WILL eat away at a screw if allowed to soak long enough. If you ever got just drop of a diluted solution on your skin in chem lab, then you can see where that would happen very easily.

The stronger acid wins. Your tummy is fine when you drink coke. Your tummy makes acid strong enough to fuck that corroded battery up. It can handle a can of coke. Please don’t swallow a screw or something to test this tho, please.

thank you science side of tumblr <3

Seriously. You could probably do all of these with lemon juice (citric acid) or vinegar (ethanoic, or acetic, acid) just because acids work in pretty similar ways. Actually, when you see people recommending vinegar as a household cleaner? This is what it’s doing!

Also, as someone who has accidentally inhaled hydrochloric acid fumes, TRUST ME, THE CARBONIC ACID IS MUCH BETTER.

Every time I see a hysterical post on modern food I just kinda point and laugh

Because dude. Dude.  You know what you breathe in and out every fucking second to survive? Oxygen. An incredibly corrosive gas that is probably responsible for more deaths across the history of the planet than anything else. Not only that, it’s a biproduct of photosynthesis. You literally rely on plant excretions to survive

Do you know what most of your body is made up of? Water. Which, given enough time, will destroy anything.

That morning coffee you like? Well shit, caffeine - lifeblood to many - is actually an incredibly potent nerve toxin (If you’re an insect). Plants actually produce that shit as an insecticide.

That refreshing zing from citrus?  Acid.  That juicy smack of a tomato? Acid and cadmium.  That tart in an apple? Arsenic.  That seasoning you put all over your fish and chips? Acid strong enough to destroy seashells - life that has evolved to survive living in a salt-drenched sea.

Stop being a tit and drink your damned coke.

EVERYTHING. IS. CHEMICALS.

What if instead of throwing your pencil stubs away when they´re too short to use, you could plant them, add some water and watch them grow? Meet Sprout, a pencil with a seed! The high quality pencil features a water activated capsule at its tip, when the pencil is too short to use, you can plant it and have it grow into something delicious, beautiful and fun. Sprout comes in a variety of different flavors, from flowers, to herbs and vegies. A great idea to make writing fun again. watch the video

Artist recreates his childhood doodles 20 years later

In his series “Kiddie Arts,” Telmo Pieper took his old doodles and used Photoshop to digitally recreate them in a realistic style. While the pictures still look bizarre and fantastical, it’s fascinating to see the two versions — one by a child and one by an adult — side by side.

Anonymous said: ~the endeavor to make Carter *perfect* before her death~ Do they really try to make her perfect? (Sorry, I still struggle with The Crossing and End Game)

managerie76:

Having Reese say lovely things about Carter that were previously attributed to Finch made it seem like Carter saved Reese’s life when in fact Carter helped steer Reese to Finch who saved Reese’s life. This makes Carter look better to the viewers and elevates her Saintly status.

The constant reminders that Carter is a loving mother we saw in The Crossing made the viewers again cast Carter into the Madonna role. Next we are told that she endured a troubled marriage. This confirms that Carter divorced her husband not for SELFISH FEMINIST’s reason but for legitimate (to middle America) reasons. Placing the *blame* squarely on the husband.

Carter and Fusco are shown to be tight partners with Carter trusting Fusco. This guaranteed that Fusco fans would mourn her loss.

Then she and Finch have a moment thus endearing her to Harold (so the audience members who love Finch now see Carter as a friend to Finch) even though Carter’s character integrity was shot all to hell since she would never, ever, ever be so sanguine about Finch stealing and using NSA feeds.

Finally Carter dies saving the Main character, in front of Reese & Finch (the audience favorites) we see Reese & Finch despair over Carter’s death so we empathize more with her loss. The ultimate gut twister is Carter dying in John’s arms while crying out for her child. The only thing missing from this emotional manipulation fest was Reese throwing his head back and scream to the sky, “NOOOOOOOOOOO!”

Yeah…they were pushing the Carter-As-Saint button the whole episode. Insuring that the maximum pain was felt. If they had killed Carter in Get Carter not too many people would be upset. If they had killed her after Number Crunch…nobody would have been upset. If they had killed her at the Judge’s house (where she should have died for not calling in Reese and Finch sooner) We would have gasped but then it would not have been as emotional. No. They killed her off after raising her up onto a pedestal. That way the fall was longer and harder.

You know it’ll be good when the trailer hurts you like this. [X]

It’s gonna bring tears, no doubt.

I’m so glad they don’t seem to be glossing over his persecution for being gay.  I was pretty sure they wouldn’t - it’s such an integral part of his story  but it’s still a relief to see it there in the trailer.
