Untreated cotton wool burning in air compared to cotton wool with added oxygen
Once scientists had discovered that air is a mixture of
gases, about 300 years ago, they soon realised that one part was key to
burning: oxygen. Chemists such as Swiss-German Christian Schönbein and Italian Ascanio Sobrero then started to do experiments
to make fuels burn better, not by mixing with air, but by trying to mix them
This is the result of one such experiment: a triumph of
chemistry. Burning in air, cotton wool burns relatively slowly (top image),
with incomplete combustion. Add oxygen (below image) and you have gun cotton,
and the reaction is spectacular.
Take a deep breath. Now another. One of those two lungfuls of air was provided by phytoplankton, which produce at least 50% of Earth’s oxygen. This Thanksgiving we’re giving props to the ocean for everything it gives us. Thanks, Ocean!
Okay clearly today’s Bad Girls’ Club episode showed how magical works of white privilege occurs, it’s clearly okay to destroy, vandalize hard working black girls’ property of expensive high end clothes and purses (prada, chanel, raf simons x adidas, celine, valentino, and more) by peeing, putting condiments and water in a bathtub to let it soak, throw paint on their clothes. When the black girls go gather their items, it’s okay for the white trash to try to hit them which they barely did and when the black girls get mad, oh my woah they have to protect the white girls who clearly started this mess and send them to a hotel BUT the black girls have to get kicked off, when they absolutely have the right to be pissed and put their hands on them for destroying personal property. The most fucked up part about it is that the Twins and Jela are posting what truly happen to them items on insta/twitter and Oxygen did not apologize or paid them back for what happen.
oh, you are the O
the needed element
of the air that
I breathe, you
in my lungs
fill with the pleasure
of O desiring to
survive on you
lost if hypoxia
clamps icy fingers
impeding my O
