In slow motion, vortex rings can be truly stunning. This video shows two bubble rings underwater as they interact with one another. Upon approach, the two low-pressure vortex cores link up in what’s known as vortex reconnection. Note how the vortex rings split and reconnect in two places – not one. According to Helmholtz’s second theorem a vortex cannot end in a fluid–it must form a closed path (or end at a boundary); that’s why both sides come apart and together this way. After reconnection, waves ripple back and forth along the distorted vortex ring; these are known as Kelvin waves. Some of those perturbations bring two sides of the enlarged vortex ring too close to one another, causing a second vortex reconnection, which pinches off a smaller vortex ring. (Image source: A.

Also I first saw this through another fic, so if anyone knows who it is please let me know so I can give them credit. Thanks!
“And I would like to wish a very Happy Birthday to our lovely Y/N! Happy eighteenth birthday, and all the best wished towards you to help you find that soulmate of yours. They will certainly be a lucky person!” your cousin Matthew shouted in the ballroom.
A resounding applause came from everyone in the room and you sat there blushing. You never knew what to do in these situations.
“Thank you,” you said, nodding your head.
The music struck back up again, and you decided to get up and dance.
Tonight was the night of your eighteenth birthday in 1774 and the day that would now stop aging until you met the person that you would spend the rest of your life with.
You hoped that they would find you soon. You didn’t want to just be alone for a long time.
The party continued even as you made your way to the garden in the back of the manor. You made your way through the roses, going over to the fountain.
You sat on the edge and looked at the moon.
‘Please find me soon. I love you already.’
“Lin, I already told you this. Please shut up,” your groaned as your friend kept rambling on about ideas for his new musical.
About Alexander Hamilton.
He had first met you when he was still in high school, you had come in to talk to his history class.
He had been fascinated by you, and ever since then you had gotten along splendidly. His family treated you like their own, and you were often asked to babysit for him.
You didn’t mind, it was nice. But sometimes he wouldn’t leave you alone. Like now.
He had just started producing his new play Hamilton, and he wanted everything to be perfect.
You didn’t blame him, but with him calling at three in the morning was getting annoying.
Right now he was asking about costumes, and he thought that you could add your expertise. But you were exhausted right now.
“Lin, i’m going to bed. I’ll be back in New York in three days and I’ll come and see you at the theater. We can talk then.”
He huffed but you knew that he would relent now.
“Alright alright. I’ll see you then. Goodnight!”
You put your phone down and got back up out of bed. You went into the bathroom and looked in the mirror.
You started at your face. A face that looked 18 years old but in fact was 251 years old.
Would you ever find your soulmate? It had been so long, you were just announced to be the oldest person on the plant.
‘Well, back to bed for me.’
“Y/N! You made it!” Lin cried as he fought through the crowd of cast. He wrapped you in a big hug.
You laughed and hugged him back.
“I brought a bunch of old trunks with clothes that I still own. I thought that you might want to use them for inspiration. You can’t use the actual ones however.”
A smile crossed his face as he cheered.
“Thank you so much!”
“I’ll need some help bringing them up, but please be careful, they’re very important to me.”
He nodded and relayed that info to some others that went to get your stuff. You went down with them, watching them as they took it all up stairs.
“I think that’s all of the,” Lin said as he came up to you.
“Thanks Lin. I’m going to send a quick email and then I’ll come up and meet you.”
He nodded and left, yourself getting on your phone.
Finishing up your business you started to go up the stairs, but you found yourself tripping on the last step.
You braced for a fall, but instead of the cold ground you were met by a pair of strong arms.
Sparks exploded, and your chest started glowing, the second part of the soulmate bond. The two of you froze, not knowing what to do.
You picked yourself up and the man released you. You turned around to look at your soulmate, and there he was.
Daveed Diggs, the man playing Thomas Jefferson and the Marquis de Lafayette. Your soulmate.
How crazy was that.
“Holy shit,” he said. You giggled.
“Is that all you have to say?” you shot back. He smiled at you.
“Why do we have to say anything?” He mused, coming closer to you. His face was only an inch from yours. You felt yourself feeling hot.
He took your breath away.
You stared into each other’s eyes, before your lips met in a fiery kiss. It was wonderful. After being 18 for 243 years, this was everything you could have imagined.
As you broke apart he stared at you lovingly. He was holding you in his arms again.
“I do have a question for you,” he said. “How long have you been 18? It’s been five years for me.”
“I’ve totally got you beat.”
“What do you mean?”
“I’ve looked like this for 243 years.”
His mouth dropped open.
“Well fuck,” he whispered, sending you into a fit of laughter. “How old does that make you then?”
“251,” you replied as you recovered from laughing.
EDIT: Ok so I was hoping that I guess i didn’t have to explain this but the reason they’re laughing at ‘51′ is because Hamilton wrote 51 essays. Cool? Cool.
After how popular the first iteration of this flowchart got (thank you all so much for that, by the way, it’s really awesome that it helped so many people out), I was inspired to create a second volume, with even more species and resources than the first. Well, after a month or so of work, it’s finally here! Just in time for the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope, here’s “What Species To Choose For Your Star Wars OC: Volume 2″!
For this new version, I upped the ante with everything. I went from including 75 species to a whopping 150 (which is still only scratching the surface of the full list, I’m afraid), and I tried my best to include more species from “The Clone Wars”, “The Force Awakens”, and “Rogue One” as well. Not only that, but down below I’ve included more resources as well: in addition to each species’ Wookieepedia articles, I’ve provided (where available) videos of the species in action, informational videos, and name generators, all to give you as much info as possible for your OC. Furthermore, among some other minor formatting tweaks, I’ve also added the option to choose answers via dice rolls (thanks to @empress-only-in-name for that idea), for anyone who would prefer a more random choice in species. Finally, I think it’s also worth mentioning that the wonderful @pomrania re-created the flowchart in a text-based format here, if you’d like to check that out.
Let me know what you all think of the new version! I tried my best to take into account everyone’s requests and suggestions, so hopefully it all worked out to your liking! Do let me know if there’s anything I can add or change, though; it will be a while before I make a Volume 3, if ever, but I’d be happy to tweak this version if it helps. Also, if you end up using this to make a character, please consider either tagging me or using #StarWarsOCFlowchart so I can see it; I don’t care about getting credit or anything, I just want to see what you guys come up with!
Links to resources are below. My original intention was to have them as part of this post, but since Tumblr apparently has a link limit for posts, I had to split them up. I hope this isn’t too much of an inconvenience!
@kazekagegirl asked “Could you do a Bucky x reader where the reader is hard on herself every time she’s messes up or does something the wrong way, she thinks she has to perfect, she thinks she screws up a lot when in actuality she don’t. Well one day her and Bucky get into it and she becomes emotional and he tells her she is not a screw up, she more than what she gives herself credit for, they argue and he storms off they make up and possibly smut. It’s different but if you can please and thank you.”
A/N: So I finally have time for all the requests! Request away people :) I changed the request a tinsy bit. Hope you don’t mind. Let me know if you want to be tagged.
Anonymous said: a spell to make someone reflect on their actions towards me????
I am sure I have seen a spell similar to this before, but I can’t find it right now, so here is my take on the concept. If anyone can find any links to a source, please let me know so I can give credit for the idea!
a small piece of paper and writing utensil
a compact mirror, the kind that you open up that has mirrors on the inside
a sigil relating to the intent
black string or yarn
a white candle
use a picture of the target instead
regular salt can be used instead of sea salt
use an LED / digital candle instead
moon phases: full moon, waning moon
day of the week: Monday, Tuesday, Saturday
time of day: dusk, night time
Write the target’s full name on the piece of paper, and write the list of things they’ve done to you that you wish for them to reflect on. Alternatively, print out a picture of them and write down their actions over their image instead. Channel your feelings towards them and their actions into the piece of paper - try to put as much emotion into it as you can.
Place the paper in the compact mirror - if there are two mirrors on the inside, even better. Fold up the paper if you need to, as long as it is completely closed into the mirror.
Affix a sigil relating to your intent to the outside of the mirror.
Wrap the string or yarn around the mirror, and tie it tightly.
Create a salt circle (it doesn’t need to be perfect), place the mirror inside it, as well as a white candle / LED candle. Light / turn on the candle and focus on your intent. If you are using a digital candle, place the mirror beside where the candle is - on a computer or phone, etc.
If you are using a real candle, it doesn’t need to burn out completely; if you don’t let it burn down, light the candle by the mirror for the next few nights.
edit: Hey y’all, I’ve caught some drawings using this base that have been uncredited as my base. That’s kind of uncool. I specifically asked y’all to tag me when you used it, not just so I can see it but also so people know it’s my pose. Please, credit/tag me and if you see the pose uncredited, let the artist know that’s not really cool with me. Thanks.
Hey guys!! So today I got something special for you! I really loved the dresses that came for adults with Dine Out and I realised I finally know how to make CC…so I’d make a version for kids. I used a dress from Get To Work as a base for the recolour so of course that pack is required!
