rotation of earth

Rotating supercell over the U.S. Great plains. I can’t tell if this is actual video or if this artists works to animate still frames, but I think some of their clips are the latter.  Almost time for tornado season to start moving up to the central U.S.

Check out how the striations on the surface of this ruby record the growth of the different faces and the 6-fold symmetry rotation axis.

Honoring Late Night Royalty- John Oliver
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (2014 - Present)
The point is if we don’t get actively involved to at least mitigate Trump’s damage, things will not be okay. And yes, the sun will rise each day, but the continual rotation of the Earth should not be your baseline expectation of American society. I just need to ask you one more thing. It’s gonna be too easy for things to start feeling normal, especially if you are someone who is not directly impacted by his actions. So keep reminding yourself this is not normal. Write it on a Post-it note and stick it on your refrigerator. Hire a skywriter once a month. Tattoo it on your ass. Because a Klan backed, misogynist internet troll is going to be delivering the next State of the Union address. And that is not normal. It is fucked up. And the only thing that gives me one degree of comfort is that I think part of Trump might be realizing that now, too.

The Turning of the Stars

Castiel is a wishing star and Dean has the one wish he can’t seem to get right.

This had been a particularly rough year for Castiel.

Well, “year” was relative, as he didn’t exactly experience “years” like most planets did while hanging aloof in the cosmos. Time ceased to be in his little galaxy where he did his work; it washed over him like a gentle breeze trying to bend a mountain.

That being said, it had been a particularly rough recent period of existence for Castiel, and it was all because of one completely insignificant human.

“Castiel” was, of course, the name he gave himself and not the name he was known by to the humans of earth. He was called Alpha Aquarrii to the more scientific of their world, or Sadalmelik - the second-brightest star in the Aquarius constellation.

He was, first and foremost, a wishing star.

Castiel was proud of his track record with granting wishes. Making a wish come true while working within the bounds of Earth’s physics and probabilities was no easy task for a star, but Castiel was billions of years old by now and had practice with millions of different worlds - and the art of bringing to pass a desire that had been given to him was something that he’d mastered. He was well familiar with the feeling that let him know the wish had successfully taken effect. It was like a spark of lightning coursed through his form; igniting the stardust he housed inside.

Some of the newer stars had to intervene more… personally, but that wasn’t an approach Castiel had needed to take in nearly half a millennia.

Naturally, he’d been absolutely confident when one Dean Winchester had made a wish that Castiel had granted tens of thousands of times. It was one of the simplest of wishes, even.

I want you to remember
how old this world is.
I want you to think of
all the times you could
have been born.

In the caves.
Moss and dirt and spears.

Amidst the gods and the demigods.
The time of planets rotating
around the earth.

During the building of the pyramids.
Hidden passages and large sphinxes.

A hundred other decades / a
thousand other years / a
million other moments.

But despite everything, we 
were born at the same time.
We exist now, together –
in the same place,
breathing the same air.

This is a formal thank you
to the universe for allowing
your birth to be the biggest
miracle of my life.

For letting you and I
walk this earth at the same time.

Okay so just keeping tabs for my own reference here:

Hunk’s birthday is January 13th

Shiro’s is February 29th, making him a leap year baby

Pidge’s is April 3rd

and now apparently we have Lance’s at July 28th (heard some people say it was revealed in the stream? I imagine we’ll get a ‘proper’ announcement/edit closer to the day, unless that’s what that Flag Day edit was)

Leaving Keith still as an unknown, if they’re just doing the paladins, or Keith, Coran, and Allura if it’s all of them.
