bears on a submarine

Five years ago the finale episode of “LOST” aired.

Back then I drew this little collage in my calendar because it was by far my favorite show. And even now it still holds a special place in my heart. ;) Hopefully I will get around to a complete rewatch later this year. Namaste!

blobfishington  asked:

Do you have any dorky or fluffy Law head cannons? Cuz you can't tell me a man in a yellow submarine with a kung fu bear isn't a dork. XD

(Here you go!)

Law (dorky):

  • He has a shelf full of stuffed animals in his room. Usually sleeps with them when Bepo refuses.
  • The colour of the submarine was chosen after Law’s wardrobe, so it was either yellow or black. In the end they deiced on yellow by playing cards.
  • No one is allowed to touch the hat. NO ONE!

Sebastian Vettel’s pole lap - Abu Dhabi, 2011.

(I haven’t seen this around YT, probably on account of FOM restrictions, let alone in HQ format, so I’m going to upload it here for posterity and so that we can actually see his eyes instead of a mass of pixels.

We’ve all had moments where we’re so absorbed and concentrated on something (reading a book, playing a game) that we forget to blink. Take a look at Seb’s eyes around the track on this pole-setting lap and how often he blinks.

In addition, look at how much his entire body seems to almost “submarine” under braking, bearing in mind that he’s strapped in so tight that the drivers feel it restricting to breathe when stationary.

Reminds us there’s someone human in there, driving those cars.)

 Reader elimik asks: 

Why do modern submarines have round bows instead of pointy ones, like the early WWII ones?  

Interestingly, there are more factors that affect this design choice than I originally thought! Perhaps the biggest factor, though, is propulsion. Although early submarines ran through several forms of propulsion from human power to steam, by World War II many subs were driven by diesel-power on the surface and relied on battery power when submerged. Power limitations meant that submarines of that era did most of their travel while at the surface, not underwater. As a result, the ships had better control and decreased drag with a pointed bow similar to that of a surface ship. It wasn’t until the advent of the nuclear-powered submarine that it became practical for submarines to spend most of their time submerged. Once fully-underwater travel was feasible (and, indeed, preferable), many subs transitioned to a blunter, rounded bow that’s more hydrodynamic underwater–and simultaneously more problematic control-wise when moving on the surface.  

Another factor separating WW-era submarines and modern subs is the depth to which they submerge. The deeper a submarine dives, the greater the pressure it must withstand. Rounded or cylindrical shapes make much better pressure vessels because they distribute pressure evenly around a surface. Historically, many subs have balanced control and hydrodynamics against pressure requirements by having two hulls, an outer one for cutting through surface waters and an inner cylindrical one that bears the brunt of the hydrostatic pressure. As we developed stronger materials, though, submarines have achieved greater depths. The German Type VII submarine, the most common U-boat of WWII, had a test depth of 230 m, whereas today’s Los-Angeles-class U.S. submarine can operate at 290 m. (Each 10 meters of depth adds about one atmosphere’s worth of pressure.) The combination of nuclear power for subsurface propulsion and stronger materials that allow deeper dives enables many modern submarines to have a single hull–the rounded hydrodynamic and pressure-resistant bow we commonly see.  (Image credits: U534 by P.

Polar bears on the sea ice of the Arctic Ocean, near the North Pole, visiting the USS Honolulu

October 2003 - Three Polar bears approach the starboard bow of the Los Angeles-class fast attack submarine USS Honolulu (SSN 718) while surfaced 280 miles from the North Pole. Sighted by a lookout from the bridge (sail) of the submarine, the bears investigated the boat for almost 2 hours before leaving.
