Menschen haben an den außergewöhnlichsten Stellen Narben. Sie sind so etwas wie geheime Straßenkarten ihrer persönlichen Geschichte…ein Diagramm ihrer Verletzungen…Die meisten heilen und hinterlassen nur eine Narbe zurück, manche jedoch heilen nicht.
—  Dr. Meredith Grey (Grey’s Anatomy)

so i just learned that the french word for “pie chart” is “diagramme en camambert” aka the camambert (type of cheese that’s a wheel shape) diagram and if that’s not the most french thing you’ve ever heard you’re lying

What was your favorite part of The Avengers? If you like science or friendship, it was probably when Tony Stark and Bruce Banner talked technical details and suddenly fell in love with each other. And since the Hulk’s less of a Randian technocapitalist freedom fighter and more of a pure-science bioclusterfuck, he deserves to finally get the evolutionary diagram treatment. This design from forum member Baznet breaks down hulking out step by diagrammable step, even throwing a tasteful H-bomb in the background. It’s a shirt you’ll wear again and again and like way too much to ever muscle-burst to shreds. [GET IT HERE]

Hello. I'm quite interested in feathers evolution. I tried to look it on internet but i don't really understand it. Could you explain it ? Thank you in all cases.

The first feathers were Stage 1, like in the diagramme above. It’s though that they first evolved as something similar to ridged scales, with the middles lifted up. This ridge evolved to be taller and taller, until it became a hollow shaft, much like a hair.

The next stage in feather evolution were “stage 2″ feathers - feathers that had many filaments based in the same spot.

The next stages involve filaments connected to one central filament. Stage 3 is the simplest of this kind, while stage 4 and 5 have further branches that allow the branches to “zip” together. Stage 5 is an asymmetrical flight feather.

Stages 3, 4, and 5 are found on modern birds.

Wahrscheinlich nennt man sich deswegen gegenseitig den oder die Ex, weil die Pfade, die sich einmal in der Mitte gekreuzt haben, am Ende getrennt verlaufen. Ein X nur als Zeichen zu sehen, mit dem etwas durchgestrichen wird, ist zu simpel. Denn so etwas lässt sich nicht ausixen, einfach so. Das X ist das Diagramm zweier sich kreuzender Pfade.
