electrocution by lightning strike

What the hell is this

 I wrote something friends

I’m assuming most of you wont really care? But hey, I had fun. 

It’s some SidLInk drabble. Not even really drabble. I just kinda wrote a story with a very brief and glossed over plot that I explained in weird clumps of paragraphs at a time. 

For all of my SidLink friends, hell the fuck yes this game has only been out for about a week and we’re already in hell

The rest will be under the cut after this first paragraph snippet, have fun stay happy plant a tree

Sidon had noticed something as of late.

As a Zora, he had previously stated and would continue to state that water and air were as one to him. Both were calming, both were home.

What he was noticing, however, was something he found odd. Link found water very calming.

Apollon is blinded by the sun and is slowly going deaf. Artemis is the hunt. Athena is going mad Zeus is weak he cant even get out of bed. Aphrodites skin is peeling of. Hades is scared of everything and paranoid. Hermes's wings are weak he cant fly anymore. Ares is losing wars, Posiedon is drowning slowly. flowers are growing out of Demeter's lungs. Mr.D is getting poisoned bcz of wine. Hephaistos is burning slowly and it hurts. Hera is betraying Zeus and each affair is killing her (pt1)

imagine camp as they try to help. Imagine Annabeth trying to feed her mother soup as she rambles about grass declaring war against gods. Imagine Percy trying to help his father but Poseidon saying that is his faith and cant be helped. Jason is there keeping his father company as he becomes weaker each day. Hunters are looking for Artemis, but she left bcz she feared they would got hurt badly. Apollon is alone in one of his old temples trying to remember what colours and music were like… (pt2)

Okay, I think I get where you were going with this. Like, let’s say that the gods were somehow turned mortal, each one with a unique curse created around their specific powers.

  • Poseidon drowning. Slowly. There’s no water or any real indication that it’s happening, but he can feel it. The sting in his eyes, the pressure on his lungs, how each breath is harder than the last
  • Apollo’s curse started with the gradual loss of his hearing. Then he started slurring his words and his vision was going wonky. He could feel the tumors pressing on his brain, skewing his senses. Will did a scan but there’s nothing there to the mortal eye but it’s still affecting Apollo
  • Hera starts exhibiting signs of HELLP syndrome, even though she’s not pregnant. The symptoms get worse and worse until she can barely stand
  • Hephaestus is on fire. It began with warmth spreading through his body, nothing extreme but his skin started turning pink, like he had a sunburn. Then it slowly got worse. People couldn’t see the fire but they could see the affects of it. he became so scarred and dealt with so much pain, that he locked himself away, not wanting anyone to see him 
  • Athena has swelling of the brain. She knows it’s supposed to be some sick irony for the fact that she’s so knowledgeable and therefore her “brain is bigger” 
  • Demeter experiences what happens when someone is poisoned with Belladonna. She hallucinates and hides away in the dark because the light hurts her eyes, rashes forming all over her skin
  • Hermes becomes disoriented. People try to talk to him but he just wonders past them, muttering incoherently as he constantly stumbles over things and hopelessly tries to figure out where he is
  • Zeus feels like he’s being electrocuted, scars from lightning strikes start forming over his skin
  • Hades has maggots crawling all over him. No one can see them but he can feel them burrowing in his skin, consuming him slowly, like they consume the dead

I’m sorry I kind of went off track with your original idea but it was fun thinking of special curses for each god based on their powers and domain. 

carol & ouro are robots made by ““the scientists”“ by which you should really imagine a bunch of college-aged ““geniuses”” in their respective trades who banded together to basically swindle together money for an ambitious AI experiment. they kinda promised robot soldiers and instead used their funding to see how closely they could imitate human life and sentience with an AI robot. needless to say they got in a whole lot of trouble for that

carol is their first robot, but they managed to um, kinda lose him during testing at some point, right after he gets accidentally electrocuted because of lightning striking their base and blowing out all electricity and everything plugged into it. as such, carol is unfinished and slightly fried, but hes trying his best to get by.

ouro is their second robot, who looks literally exactly the same as carol (but wearing a different wig), but is more “finished” so to speak than carol, and has a much finer control over facial expressions, understanding the emotions and words of others.

carol ends up being reverse-adopted as the caretaker of a bunch of small children, who are all very invested with their large robot friend, and under the guidance of a 12 year old girl with a knack for technology, continue developing and encouraging his AI. by the time ouro is roughly finished and functional and can pretty much pass himself off as a human, their AIs have diverged so much they’re essentially very different “people” with different understandings of the world, ie, ouro’s character was developed by several adults in a lab, while carol’s character was developed by several small children who want him to pretend to be their dad when they go out for groceries

I noticed the traps that Jigsaw Karai put the turtles in, were very reminiscent of their spirit elements.

Leo~Wind

  • The trap was spinning swords very much like a fan that creates wind.

Raph~Fire

  • He was basically in an oven with vents and heat lamps creating heat like fire.

Donnie~Mountain

  • He had stay strong while he endured electrocution. When lightning strikes a mountain it doesn’t crumble. 

Mikey~Forest

  • Not so much his trap, but, his rescuing of Donnie. He had stay calm and focus so he could solve the puzzle. Which he did and stood there like a tree in the forest.

Pulp – ‘I Spy’ (Live, 1995)

Do you think I do these things for real?

I do these things just so I survive

'I Spy’ is my favourite Pulp song by a very, very, very long way indeed. It is the apex of Jarvis Cocker’s preoccupation with class hatred; it is the ultimate example of Jarvis-as-intellectual-threat. The Jarvis of this song is trapped and seething, filled with genuine contempt and disdain, but utterly aware of his own value exactly. He’s not merely coming back for everything, he’s doing it just because he can, and because you deserve it, and he’s using his body – that discarded, disrespected, societally valueless body – as his weapon, because revenge is a dish best served freezing.

It’s crucial to understanding this song to appreciate that it appears on the same album as 'Common People’. (A post just about 'Different Class’ is coming up, so hold on.) It is especially important to appreciate that it appears immediately after 'Common People’ in the tracklisting. The Jarvis of 'Common People’ is impotent and angry, and there is an implication in the song that he is being used for sex by a woman of higher social status, which he might not be enjoying all that much. The Jarvis of that song was eloquent, but powerless. The song can have impact on you, the listener, but the narrator is fundamentally unable to change anything. Not so the Jarvis of 'I Spy’.

As I’m sure engenders in you GREAT SURPRISE, this song is also very meaningful to me personally, which I’m going to talk about, in more length than you or I or probably anyone needs. I’m also going to talk more about how much I hate Britpop – I’m still not sorry – and why this song is important re: class dialectics and Britpop. And now: I’m putting it under a cut so you can ignore it you want. I’M NOT THE BOSS OF YOU, COMRADE.

HEADCANON: Elemental Traits for Dragons

Because I can’t imagine eye color is the only thing,

  • Earthborn Dragons are well equipped for digging and can break rocks with their bare claws no matter their apparent build.
  • Fireborn Dragons are naturally resistant to heat and flame, and cannot be hurt by fire.
  • Waterborn Dragons can all breathe underwater, no matter the species, and tend to have water repellent scales, feathers, and fur.  They are also buoyant, if they choose to be.
  • Windborn Dragons all have internal compasses of a sort like migratory birds.  They are also, overall, the fastest dragons.
  • Lightningborn Dragons can ground or conduct electric power at will and cannot be hurt by lightning strike or electrocution.
  • Iceborn Dragons are naturally resistant to cold and frostbite no matter the species.  More than any other element, they can tolerate hunger and take longer to starve.
  • Lightborn Dragons are reflective by daylight and luminescent by night, so they are always surrounded by a glow.
  • Shadowborn Dragons can easily blend into shadows and darkness, making them the most skilled at stealth.
  • Arcanaborn Dragons can all cast and practice magic with ease.  They’re basically witches.
  • Natureborn Dragons are excellent horticulturalists, and in fact, can encourage new growth with almost no effort.
  • Plagueborn Dragons have multitudes of symbiotic relationships with microbes and parasites that would kill other dragons.  They aren’t resistant to disease so much as they are asymptomatic carriers for everything.

palladian-ravenclaw  asked:

When lightning strikes the sea, why don't all the fish die?

Lightening strikes on the ocean compared to land is a rather unusual occurrence. The image below shows NASA’s data on distribution of lightning strikes across the world in 2003. It is fairly clear that lightning on land is a whole lot more common than out at sea. Although, some areas especially around the east coast of Southern Africa and South America do see relatively regular lightning strikes at sea. 

Do fish die from electrocution when lightning strikes the sea?

Apparently not, unlike air, the sea is a very good conductor as it contains salt. Rather than creating an direct narrow, path concentrating the “punch”, the charge from the lightning strike spreads out sideways and downwards in an expanding half sphere from the surface. Any fish within a few meters of the strike area would probably be killed but beyond that they would probably just feel a tingle. Fish also tend to be a bit deeper in the water and not at the surface where the current is concentrated. Glad we got that answered.

Is it safe to go for a dive when there is lightning?

The answer here is a resounding NO, several divers have been killed by lightning in the past, most often as they surface in a thunderstorm and their tanks act as conductors and zap, bye bye.

So there you have it, no, the fish don’t die, lightning striking the ocean is quickly dissipated across the surface, but if you happen to be swimming about with a nice big steel conductor tied to your back, you could be in for a rough day. But still way safer than a round of golf.
