CRYSTALS ARE COOL.

CRYSTALS ARE REALLY INTERESTING

THEY ARE NOT FUCKIN MAGIC. THEY ARE LUMPS OF ROCK THAT LOOK NICE AND ARE PART OF OTHER ROCKS.

LOOK AT SOME FUCKING PERIDOTITE AND GET ALL EXCITED OVER HOW IT’S LITERALLY PART OF THE FUCKIN EARTH’S CORE INSTEAD OF PRETENDING THAT CHUNKS OF QUARTZ WITH CHEMICALS ADDED IN A VACUUM CHAMBER ARE MAGICAL.

LOOK AT THAT FUCKING ROCK. LOOK AT IT.

IT’S FUCKING PERIDOTITE. ALL THOSE AMAZING GREEN GLASSY CRYSTALS ARE OLIVINE. YOU’VE SEEN OLIVING BEFORE IN BASALT AND SHIT. BUT YOU HAVEN’T SEEN IT LIKE THIS.

THE CRYSTALS (THAT’S RIGHT, FUCKING UNMAGICAL AWESOME CRYSTALS) HAVE HAD A FUCKING HUGE AMOUNT OF TIME TO FORM SO ARE FUCKING HUGE.

YOU KNOW THE BIG LUMP OF SUPERHEATED AND SUPERPRESSURISED ROCK THAT (OVER GEOLOGICAL TIME) FLOWS ABOUT LIKE A MAD CUNT (A REALLY SLOW ONE)? THIS IS THAT SHIT (PROBABLY. LIKE THIS IS WHAT THE EVIDENCE SUGGESTS,BUT IT COULD JUST BE A MASSIVE CAVERN FULL OF CATS OR WHATNOT) (BY MASSIVE I MEAN LIKE A HUGE HOMOGENOUS MASS OF CAT AS A SUBSTANCE. PURE CAT. WITH NO PORE SPACES. JUST CAT RIGHT DOWN TO CHINA) (FUCK YOU I AM A SCIENTIST I KNOW THIS SHIT)

HERE IT IS AS A XENOLITH IN A BASALT (APPARENTLY - IT LOOKS LIKE THERE ARE GAS BUBBLES/VESICLES IN IT, TOO, SO I DUNNO IF I’D PERSONALLY CALL IT ONE BUT FRANKLY FUCK THAT FOR GIVING A SHIT) . THIS IS A LUMP OF PERIDOTITE THAT GOT MIXED INTO A MUCH, MUCH FINER GRAINED ROCK WITH THE SAME GEOCHEMISTRY SO HAS PROBABLY TRAVELLED A STUPID DISTANCE FROM THE EARTH’S CRUST. THINK THE SPACE BETWEEN A NEW AGE TWAT’S BRAIN CELLS AND YOU’RE ALMOST THERE FOR A GOOD GRASP ON THE DISTANCE.

THIS IS A FUCKING COOL CHUNK OF ROCK. A REALLY COOL MASS OF CRYSTALS. 

HERE’S SOME MORE WITH MASSIVE CHUNKS OF GARNET WHICH ACTS AS AN INDICATOR OF MASSIVE PRESSURE. LOOK AT THOSE GARNETS. 

THEY ARE A FUCKING COOL CRYSTAL AND ARE ALMOST THE SIZE OF THAT COIN. WHEREVER IT’S FROM. I CAN’T SEE THE QUEEN ON IT SO I ASSUME IT’S ONE OF THOSE FUCKING WEIRD PLACES THAT DON’T HAVE THE QUEEN. QUEENLESS PRICKS.

A superheated liquid can reach temperatures higher than its boiling point without actually boiling - similar to how liquids can be supercooled below their freezing point without solidifying. The photo sequence above shows how explosive the boiling of a superheated water droplet submersed in sunflower oil can be. Image (a) in the lower left shows the superheated droplet resting on the bottom of its container. Then droplet vaporizes explosively in (b), expanding dramatically. The bubble overexpands and and begins to oscillate around its equilibrium radius. This triggers a Rayleigh-Taylor instability in the bubble’s interface, creating the large lobes in (c) and enlarged in the upper image. Finally, the bubble fragments in (d). See the original paper for more on superheated droplet boiling. (Image credit: M. A. J. van Limbeek et al.; via @AIP_Publishing

Three basic components are necessary for a geyser: water, an intense geothermal heat source, and an appropriate plumbing system. In order to achieve an explosive eruption, the plumbing of a geyser includes both a reservoir in which water can gather as well as some constrictions that encourage the build-up of pressure. A cycle begins with geothermally heated water and groundwater filling the reservoir. As the water level increases, the pressure at the bottom of the reservoir increases. This allows the water to become superheated—hotter than its boiling point at standard pressure. Eventually, the water will boil even at high pressure. When this happens, steam bubbles rise to the surface and burst through the vent, spilling some of the water and thereby reducing the pressure on the water underneath. With the sudden drop in pressure, the superheated water will flash into steam, erupting into a violent boil and ejecting a huge jet of steam and water. For more on the process, check out this animation by Brian Davis, or to see what a geyser looks like on the inside, check out Eric King’s video. (Video credit: Valmurec; idea via Eric K.)

Don't be telling me you love//loved me when it was all fake.

You thought that one day I wouldn’t find out. I don’t know how you can live with your self knowing you hurt me so much. I opened up to your stupid ass. Before you I got hurt, and I promised myself not to let my guard down and I did for you. I got to attached and let you hurt me and bring me down. Ugh. I can’t believe you right now. You just ruined my night. And on top of that your trying to my good friend… FUCK THAT SHIT. Your noone to me!

Regular Weapons » Explosives

"The next step up in the Grenade’s evolution, these explosive devices are mainly carried by Enclave soldiers. They detonate upon contact with a foe and, like Plasma Pistols and Plasma Rifles, engulf an area around the detonation point with superheated plasma. They are even more deadly if you have the Demolition Expert perk. The only downside is their rarity."
