human fountain

janetfraiser replied to your post: I might have accidentally started rewatching BSG.

i’m rewatching it. i dont know if i’ll put myself through daybreak again

Listen, I know I’m a little bit in the minority here, but I actually love Daybreak. Oh, it’s completely batshit crazy, but humanity scrapping technology in favor of living with what this new Earth provided made sense to me, because with 40,000 survivors, they were kind of screwed if they hoped to keep up their planet-hopping, textile-weaving, shoe-buying, advanced lifestyle. I mean, one of the biggest questions I had when watching the show was, do they have natural fibers out there in space with which to make more clothes, or are they eventually gonna all wind up naked because their clothes give out? And, yes, the Galactica crew knows how to fix things that go wrong, but do they know how to build air conditioning units and refrigerators and convection ovens? Pretty much from the start, they were doomed to starting more or less from scratch.

REGARDLESS. We all knew Laura was going to die, because Ronald D. Moore is a jerk who likes to make people suffer, or else Billy would still be alive. And watching that scene where Laura just slips away makes me cry EVERY DAMN TIME, but the scene before that, when she’s curled up next to Bill and looking through the binoculars at the wildlife…oh my gods, I just melt every time. I could watch that scene over and over and over and never get tired of it. When she snorts at him and says “It’s not Earth”…I mean, you have to love someone and know they love you to make such an unladylike sound, Madam President.

Part of me wishes for more kissing and more declarations of undying love, but most of me loves how natural that scene felt between them.

And don’t even get me started on the Raptor. I am the first to admit that I am 100% here for Laura Roslin/Mary McDonnell, but if you look at Bill Adama in that scene, when he’s piloting the Raptor and talking about the wildlife on the planet, he’s just…smiling. He looks 20 years younger. Just with that smile, you know there’s nowhere else in the galaxies that he’d rather be, and it’s just a really precious moment. It is, without a doubt, my favorite Bill Adama moment in the series, because it’s just him - not the Admiral, just Bill. I love Edward James Olmos’s portrayal of that episode, but that scene in particular just hits me right in my soft, gooey center.

Also, Daybreak features Laura in her skimpy nightie, so…I’m not going to not watch THAT.

Can you imagine Krystal having a Hades storyline? Where she’s been lonely in Underworld/Hell for so long; and then she sees a beautiful girl living her life and Krystal wants to get to know her, so Krystal kidnaps her to be her future wife …

Yes, I did. And I’m all in for this. I changed a bit the plot, but I really hope you like it!

The room was deadly quiet as always, even the fire crackling in the fireplace was mute. Soojung liked that for some reason, just watching the muted sinuous flames move from her spot at the foot of the king size bed. Her back against the once old dark wooden headboard, she was used to spend her free time there in that anodyne silence, trying to catch a breath that she knew it was gone forever. If she looked over her shoulder, she could see a figure lying over the bed.

The whole bed was made of some material similar to ivory. A dark ivory layer which covered the whole furniture down to the floor. Wood turned into black ivory, simple objects too. Even the figure of the woman lying there, as if she was asleep, was covered with ivory.

Soojung got used to hang out there, in the silent that the immense magic power set long time ago.

A weird ship (I think so but hey... not bashing)

I’ve started to think Josuke and Mikitaka are… a pretty decent couple. Like they didn’t show much of them together but Josuke’s goofy personality and Mikitaka’s always wanting knowledge on husmans seems like a pretty solid base for a relationship. Seeing Josuke just telling Mikitaka what’s cool and uncool. And of course, Mikitaka believes him on everything. Then Mikitaka starts to worship Josuke a little bit for being a human fountain of knowledge. But then Josuke starts to kinda fall for Mikitaka but I really can’t decide if Mikitaka falls for him back or he’s just like, “best friends~”

And Josuke ends up getting shut down. Like bro… that’s sad but Mikitaka has the vibe of being such an Ace.

q1p  asked:

Why do veins stick out, but not arteries?

Arteries are pressurized, much more than veins. Veins are like a reservoir of blood waiting for your heart to pull it in and pressurize it. Arteries are like fire hoses of blood. Lots of positive pressure so that it can be pushed into all of the tiny crevices where your body needs oxygen. 

Now you might think that this means arteries would bulge out more than veins. And indeed, if they were there, they would. But because your arteries are fire hoses of blood they tend to be buried quite deeply in your tissues, behind layers of muscle and fat so that, if you scrape yourself, you don’t become a human blood fountain.

Below is a cross section of the human forearm.

Two more questions might have popped up as you read this…and I’m going to answer those as well. 

1. Why do veins bulge out if they aren’t pressurized?

Well, they are pressurized…just mostly by gravity. If you see the veins on your hand standing out, just lift them above your head and watch as all that blood drains out of the long, skinny balloons of vascular tissue that run all throughout your body.

2. Why is any of the circulatory system near the surface of the skin…seems dangerous.

Cooling! The veins you see near the surface of your skin are “superficial veins.” They don’t actually carry that much blood…just enough so that, when you’re hot and sweating, they can dump some of your body’s heat into the environment to prevent you from overheating. 

When you’re cold, those veins constrict and much less blood moves into them, allowing you to conserve heat. 

Merry Christmas @sildae!

I’m not even gonna post the request here bc I deviated SO FAR FROM THE PROMPT. (I’m sorry! But here’s Wonderwall Rex in aviators. And nothing else.)

Ahsoka had never heard Commander Sato so shrill before, ranting about how their intelligence gaps in the Dyodd sector hampered the rebellion from charting Imperial movement in the Outer Rim. With their small numbers, they couldn’t send recruiters, and it would take time to plant a source of their own.

All others on the bridge were scurrying to find answers to appease him; Ahsoka just waited out his long-winded tantrum until she could say, “Commander, I happen to have connections in the Dyodd sector.”

At least, as of six months ago when she last contacted Rex, that’s where they’d wound up—him and his brothers—on their journey across the galaxy to find the best fit for them.

She was already in her ship stealing through hyperspace before she reached out to his familiar contact number… only for a hologram of Wolffe to pop up instead from the projector in the middle of the cockpit control panel.

“Yeah?” he grunted. His full, black beard made Ahsoka pause. That certainly hadn’t been around half a year ago.

“Hey… I was looking for Rex. You’re still on Dyodd, right?”

“Maybe we are, maybe not. Rex is…” Wolffe squinted at her, apparently picking the rest of his sentence carefully, “out for the day.”

This photo was taken in the financial district during the River to River Festival’s “Extreme Movement” presentation on an iphone. The STREB dance company of Williamsburg, Brooklyn were making these incredible 30 foot leaps off of scaffolding onto an open black mat, choreographed to modern music. The piece, aptly titled “Human Fountain” was exciting and awe defying to watch. Don’t try this s%^#% at home. LOL!

have you ever eaten potatoes again since your arrival on earth?

Okay, so, when i was just a young boy I loved apple sauce. Couldn’t get enough of the stuff. My mother would buy it and it would be gone minutes later. Probably never made it in the fridge. Reached the point where she would have to hide the applesauce. But I always found it. 

One day, I’m at my aunt’s house. It’s a great time. I go in the kitchen because little me is bored. I open the fridge and my God. It’s like I’m Indiana Jones and I’m looking at the Ark of the Covenant. An entire jar of applesauce. I’m talking Mott’s, the big jar. The one that is unnecessarily large. I wasn’t sure (still am not sure) under what circumstances someone would need to buy that much applesauce at once, but who cares? I hit the applesauce lotto! 

I ate the entire jar. Without a single remorse. Until afterwards. Turns out people really shouldn’t consume 48 ounces of pureed apples at once. My mother and aunt come back into the kitchen, they see what I have done. The sad remains of the jar. (It never stood a chance.) Just as my mother goes to chastise me, I throw up applesauce everywhere. I am a human applesauce fountain. It was by far the worst experience in the world. 

I never ate applesauce again. 

So, if someone presented me with a potato or a cup of applesauce and I had to choose. 200% I would eat that applesauce while glaring at the potato.
