hand though

NDRV3 is just a month old and Kokichi Ouma is already somehow the most misunderstood character in the series, even more than Mikan.

Three of five small, button-like ingots of tin (Sn) I cast. (one was lost, and the other was given to a friend.) The only chemical I’ve ordered online has been pure tin turnings. I was melting down tin in order to expose the metallic surface underneath the oxide layer that had built up on them - this is important for speeding along the reactions of metallic tin with acids. So far, I’ve only prepared a solution of tin(II) chloride, also known as stannous chloride (not exciting, it’s just a colorless solution.) 

Sn(s) + 2 HCl(aq) → SnCl2(aq) + H2(g) 

I melted them down myself using a mini butane burner and cast them into these weird little pipe valves I found lying around in the garage? I’m not really sure what they were, but I cast them into those, with the bottom an aluminum-foil lined cast-iron pan. I tried casting into other things, such as threaded nuts and even aluminum foil, but they didn’t work. This is the most successful I’ve gotten. I’m going to try casting other metals - cadmium is proving to be difficult, as it oxidizes before it melts, but I’m determined. Zinc and bismuth are other likely targets, as they all have somewhat low melting points.

A/N: Requested by anon. This is trash and I’m so sorry. I didn’t know what do with it. Please forgive me. Also I’m sorry this took me like seven years to write I hope that you see this. Also I’m sorry I’m terrible at summaries

You hadn’t planned on asking Jun for help. You didn’t want to ask Jun for help. He’d known how much you needed help, and he’d showed up one day, with that smug smirk of his, and offered it to you on a silver platter. He’d just strolled up to you one day, a massive smirk on his face, and he’d asked you if you needed help. You couldn’t say no. You didn’t know how he’d found out that you were struggling so much, but it wasn’t really an opportunity that you could pass up. You needed good grades. You were doing exceptionally well in everything else; teachers often loved you for how hard you worked, and your peers always seemed pretty comfortable coming to you for help. But it was just this one subject…

The fact of the matter was that Jun was top of the class in Chinese. He aced every test with near-perfect marks. He didn’t really seem to try in his other subjects, and you always believed that the fact that he’d grown up in China gave him an unfair advantage, but the fact of the matter was that he was the best in the class. And, if the best in the class offers to help you, you don’t say no. It doesn’t matter if his flirty, arrogant personality annoys you a little. You had to make the most of it. The two of you weren’t friends, per say, but you were well acquainted enough. At least, enough for you to not feel entirely awkward about him tutoring you.

anonymous asked:

Do u like Dennis? Hope this doesn't offend u but sometimes I get like a vibe that u sort of rlly hate the dude lol

this is such a funny question omg

okay so like… i have really conflicting feelings about dennis. i think he’s fascinating and tragic and that there’s something very recognizable and relatable at his core

on the other hand, though, i HATE how much more attention he’s gotten in the past few seasons in comparison to dee and charlie. having a deep character with a bunch of layers to analyze is only fun when it doesn’t come at the cost of cutting the depth/screentime of your other characters

and like uh. the dude’s a sexual predator like. that’s very much a thing and it’s hard for me to just look past that considering my experiences

Finally finished this piece for cutiesaturday!! This has been sitting in my files and the back of my head forever?! Link to the Past is my favorite LoZ game - and as such, pink/magenta haired Link is always my fav too <3

Stefán: [reading the text on the car] The travel agency that will change your life. Hey, we have to find out what their phone number is.

Steinunn: Oh, why?

Stefán: Because.

Steinunn: What do you mean?

Stefán. Because, I wanna try to get their number, a travel agency that changes my life, I have cancer, I’m gonna call them and ask ‘do you have trips for people like me?’ [laughs]

No lie. I’ve been watching it for 5min straight. It’s been months and i’m still not over it.
