Science is that boy I liked in fourth grade: it pretty much hates me, but I chase it anyway.

Want to see something that’s equal parts creepy and stunningly beautiful? Watch this juvenile glass mantis dismantle and devour a fly: http://bit.ly/1uplBzI

OH GOD so pretty yet so gross.

This is the slowest apocalypse I have ever seen.

ok but seriously my favourite prehistoric animal is definitely andrewsarchus

THEIR JAW WAS A METER LONG

LOOK AT THAT SIZE COMPARISON

BUT THAT’S NOT THE BEST BIT

YOU SEE THEIR CLOSEST LIVING RELATIVES AREN’T BEARS

OR WOLVES

I’ve actually read about this in a Biography about Tesla, apparently Twain would come over to Tesla’s place sometimes and they would mess with all the crazy inventions. :D

Side note: These don’t have motors. They’re completely momentum/wind-powered and literally just wander around beaches unsupervised like giant abstract monsters.

these are both amazing and COMPLETELY TERRIFYING

Maybe if I had a teacher like this I would have liked science more.

This is who you are.

pretty much

This actually gives rise to what you perceive as “you”.

The BrachistochroneThis animation is about one of the most significant problems in the history of mathematics: The Brachistochrone Challenge:If a ball is to roll down a ramp which connects two points, what must be the shape of the ramp’s curve be, such that the descent time is a minimum?Intuition says that it should be a straight line. That would minimize the distance, but the minimum time happens when the ramp curve is the one shown: a cycloid.Johann Bernoulli posed the problem to the mathematicians of Europe in 1696, and ultimately, several found the solution. However, a new branch of mathematics,Calculus of Variations, had to be invented to deal with such problems. Today, calculus of variations is vital in Quantum Mechanics and other fields.
