Theory on what happened to Shiro, courtesy of my physics teacher

So in class today we ended up talking about the atomic theory and all that good stuff, but when we got to the states of matter and wormholes, my ears perked up. By the end of class I was nearly jumping in my seat. I’ll try to explain what the teacher said to the best of my remembrance, and since the show has given fairly strong nods to actual science before, I’m rooting for this theory! They key concepts are: Matter and Anti-matter

the crows with youtube channels:

Inej: one of those superhuman gymnastics channels, acrobatic tutorials, and sometimes sit-down politics chats and book reviews, she’s literally an inspiration to everyone

Kaz: you never see his face, just gloved hands and raspy voice demonstrating card tricks and slight of hand until one day he reaches 5k and does a face reveal, and everyone is like, wtf….he’s so young whatttt???

Wylan: some kind of badass sciencey chemically shit, videos get taken down bc they are too dangerous, also has a conspiracy theory series…

Jesper: PRANK VIDEOS

Kuwei: one of those cringy af flower crown vloggers that 12 yos are obsessed with…most of his videos consist of him reviewing candy - has most followers tho

Nina: absolutely no one can tell me Nina wouldn’t be the queeeeen of ASMR, probably does slime videos, and also daily life logging, fashion hauls and feminist rants, often is a guest on Inej’s channel

Matthias: ITS OSKAAR HERE, IN ICELAND (if you haven’t seen the video I mean this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5q77MQzU2Q)

the other day i was covering for one of our cashiers and a customer came through with a monster high doll. normally I’ll ask if the kid or whoever is a fan of whatever the person is purchasing and this person told me “yeah, she’s really into science and this one is sciencey, but i’m not too keen about the outfit”. i look at the box and nod and say “yeah, I don’t think open-toed heels are safe for a laboratory environment”. the customer just looked up at me with big eyes and whispered back “thank you for saying that”

Books you should consider

Often on all these book recommendation lists I see going around, they are all books about Witchcraft or Wicca or Paganism, which is awesome because that’s what we are doing, but I rarely see books that can be used by Witches (using a generic term here) that aren’t Magical. 

So here is a list of books that I think need to go on every witches shelf alongside the texts from Witchy publishers

A Rocks and Minerals Guide- These are the sciencey side of the stones. How to identify them in the real world, their levels of hardness, what they are made of. This thing is great for the rockhounds in all of us.

An Herbal book that contains medicinal information NOT written by a witchy source. This one is my covens go to guide for drug interactions and warnings on dosages. (try out this one too if you don’t mind dropping $$)

How about an herbal and plant guide on how to find what you need in Nature? Find the one for your area and region and get out into the wilderness!

How about a good old Farmer’s Almanac? These things can help you so much year to year with your spell work and weather witching.

How about an Earth Science brochure for your 3-Ring BOS? Or one on Astronomy? Rocks and Stones? Botany? Meteorology?

All of these aren’t meant for purely Witchy people, they are educational, and offer a balance to our studies. To allow us to see many sides of what we do!

So where’s the fic where a young tech innovator Kara Danvers applies to attend a TEDConfrence in Metropolis, crowdfunds the $6,000 to attend, and then sits in on Lena’s talk on quantum technology. And then she manages to catch Lena afterward and piques Lena’s attention with her own knowledge and interest in quantum technology. And the two nerd out over sciencey stuff, exchange numbers if Kara ever needs assistance in her own work and the two work on science projects together that involves Lena throwing microscopes and the two nerds fall in love.

Crossing Lines: Arrow 5x19 Review (Dangerous Liaisons)

If 5x19 is indicative of the final four episodes of Season 5, then we are in for one hell of a ride. 

After setting Oliver and Felicity off into trajectories, Arrow returns to the center as Felicity’s relationship with Helix come to a head. Original Team Arrow is splintered as Felicity aligns herself against Oliver and Diggle. Smoak versus Arrow is more than just Felicity going head to head with those who know and love her best. It’s about diving into Felicity’s real motivations. Sure, we were told Felicity’s grief over Billy is pushing her over the edge 

(keep singing that tune Arrow), but we knew there was more. The truth is, Felicity’s motivations haven’t strayed too far from center after all.

Let’s dig in…

Could you post some studying tips? Thanks in advance! 💕

Okay so here is some real ass shit that has helped me get through my classes. I’m not the best at studying but here we go!

1. Find out what your learning style is (click here to take a quiz & find out!) -knowing how you percieve information the most effectively is super important if you wanna be successful. You wanna study in a way that YOU can understand. Flashcards don’t work for everybody kiddo.

2. 1 Notebook = 1 Class - organization while studying is what will keep information clear in your head. This has always been a golden rule of mine throughout my entire middle school, high school, and college career. Dedicate a specific notebook for each of your subjects so that notes are easy to look back on. If you get handouts back from a class, I suggest glueing it into the notebook as well! If you don’t like notebooks, a binder with dividers is cool too.

3. ACTUALLY TAKE NOTES - do not be the slacker that takes a picture of the notes with their phone or just reads the slides at home. Just write the shit down dude. Writing shit down helps you remember information a whole lot better and that goes for everyone. I don’t care if it’s tedious. Skip the pics, they aren’t gonna be what saves you on an exam (struggling to know how to take notes? click here for a How To guide!)

4. Revise, Revise, Revise - revising is so important. Even if you don’t get full credit for going back and correcting your mistakes, you should always know what you did wrong so you can correct yourself in the future. Don’t just revise big assignments either, revise hw assignments and quizzes. It’ll help you learn the material if you didn’t get it the first time around and there’s no problem with that. This tip is probably the one that helps me the most. 

5. Go to study groups - if your school has a designated lab or time for students to go in and ask questions or study together, go for it dude. Everyone’s gonna be confused but there’s gonna be people to help get your shit together so it’s no worries and hey if people aren’t your thing don’t EVER be afraid to go to your professor or teacher directly. They’re there to educate you, it’s what they’re being paid for. Don’t let your grades suffer because you don’t reach out to others for help! Getting help is a good thing!

6. Don’t wait til the last minute - just don’t do it dude. It is not worth half assing a study session at 1am right before your quiz in the morning. You won’t absorb as much information and I promise you that your body is gonna fucking hate you for not letting it rest. Take the time to study at least 30 minutes every day for the entire week leading up to whatever test you’re gonna take. I know it sucks but it had to be said honey, procrastinating doesn’t work all the time plus it totally isn’t punk rock.

7. Listen to music - there’s some sciencey shit behind this one but I can’t remember it aha. It’s supposed to help with the neuron dendrites axon synapsey brain lobey blah blah blah just (click here for 3 hours of classical kickassness!). Honestly gaming music helps me study too because it’s literally designed to keep you focused on tasks (click here, nerds). And hey if you’re into Studio Ghibli their music is PERFECT for studiyng imo (you know the drill)

8. Take care of yourself - TAKE A FUCKIN SIP BABE. Get yourself a tall glass of rebull vodka water and some healthy brain food lvl shit to go along with it. You can’t expect yourself to absorb everything if your body is too busy focusing on taking care of it self because you’re too busy studying. Honestly just take 10 minutes before you start studying and grab an apple! I like to make smoothies and light an inscence stick or something just to make sure I’m 100% IN THE ZONE. Ya know? Do your chores or run those errands first. Then study. It just really helps when your body is taken care of and you don’t have other things to worry about. 

9. Turn your phone off - oh the horror that comes with this one.. the texts, the calls, the snaps, the notifications, THE MEMES. How ever will you survive without them?! HOnestly? Pretty damn well actually aha. Just turn your phone off to garuntee you’re giving yourself the best oppertunity to study possible! Don’t cheat yourself out of a good study session by checking your phone constantly. Tell your textin buddies your busy and to send nudes after. 

10. Reward yourself after - go out with friends or have a good, relaxing evening afterwards. Seriously. SPOIL YOURSELF GORL. You deserve it for studying your fanny off!!! This will keep ya motivated to keep studying throughout the week because you’ll be running on a praise/rewards system. This is more of a psychological trick but I mean it’s also just really nice to spoil yourself after a long day heh. Take it easy and remember to let loose once you’re done with all your studying for the day! 


Well that’s all the tips I’ve got! Thank you for asking for help and I sure hope this list is what you needed to read! Best of luck sweetpea~ xoxo

jowiththeflow4ever  asked:

Since almost everyone who's asking u questions rn are either asking about sciencey junk, or giving u hate, imma ask a question that actually is relevant to the story. (Jk, not relevant at all. Imma ask it anyways!! =^-^=) If Frisk had to choose between two pets, which pet do u think they'd choose? A magical flying cat that can puke rainbows, or a dog that can see the future but only speaks in riddles? And, follow up question, how would Chara react to their choice?

Frisk clearly would choose the dog because they love dogs and they don’t know how to clean up rainbows. Chara would probably think this was a good choice o Frisk’s part because riddles about the future are better than getting rainbows all over your floor. They would also be afraid of what the dog might say.

Bouncing off the "Kara isn't actually dumb" idea: where instead of Alex and Lena or Lena and Winn becoming science besties it's Lena and Kara (post Supergirl reveal, pre relationship) that do it because Kara learned most of her problem solving skills in a completely different context from Earthlings, so the first time Lena says "I don't want to bore you with this science jargon" Kara immediately grabs her notebook/laptop/tablet and introduces Lena to new ways of thinking about thermodynamics

Yess!!! Gimme!! Like the reason everyone thinks Kara isn’t very smart is just because the ways of thinking are just so different on Krypton and even after all these years she finds it really hard to explain Kryptonian technology and science to people.

But then Lena comes along and takes the time to really listen to what Kara’s saying - and the fact that shes a genius helps- and Kara is just so happy to finally have someone that understands!

And Lena get the idea to come up with a fake name so Kara can patent all these ideas she has and not risk her secret identity. And anytime someone tries to make Kara feel dumb for not getting something earthy Lena just starts talking all sciencey to her about stuff no one else understands. Because I feel like Lena and Kara are both super protective girlfriends

Six of Crows lock screens

Kaz: he wasn’t going to customize it much, because y’know, keep em guessing, but he wanted to get rid of the default screen, so he went to see if any of the pre-loaded options were a darker color. then he saw that one of them was a black bird’s wing and he was like “oh shit. that’s my #aesthetic” and it’s pretty much been that ever since

Inej: a group selfie of her, Nina, and Jesper doing Blue Steel-esque faces. in the corner of the photo is a fuzzy black blur that is Kaz, completely ignoring Jesper’s “Kaz!! selfie! look up!!” (it’s prior to Wylan and Matthias’s addition to the group but she loves that photo so much, it would be a bummer to change it.)

Nina: she changes it all the time. some favorites include: her and Inej wearing sunglasses and too-cool-for-you expressions; an unflattering photo of Matthias caught off guard; a cup of hot chocolate being held by hands engulfed in the cuffs of a bulky sweater; a flowery background with “i do what i want” in a digital speech bubble on top.

Matthias: it used to be that his lock screen and home screen were both a snowy mountain landscape view; Nina bugged him about being boring, and after a while he changed it so the lock screen was a sweet picture of her smiling (he did not show her for like a week)

Wylan: a picture of him making an exaggerated surprised/happy face when Jesper kisses his cheek. Inej sees it first and actually groans out loud because it’s so cute; the noise catches Jesper’s attention so he looks over at it and says “oh my god you’re so fucking gay.” 

Jesper: it used to be like a really good selfie of himself. like, the kind of selfie that is flattering and also shows of your personality, the kind you post to three different social media apps and reblog if it doesn’t get enough notes. (“oh my god, your lock screen is yourself?” inej scoffs.  “that’s so vain.”/“but look how good this selfie is.”/“damn. you’re right.”) but then one day he takes a photo of Wylan doing something that captures his full attention (flute? equation? something sciencey? idk), and he looks at it and is like “goddamnit, this is such a great photo.” he puts a bunch of heart eyes/heart/gay couple emojis on top and sets that as his lock screen instead.

Fucks sake, science. I am following you for cool sciencey shit, not a bunch of people marching on Washington for what is admittedly a somewhat just cause. Now I've had a real shitty day so you'll have to forgive me for this.

And Seattle and Michigan and wherever the fuck else people are marching

Unfollow if you don’t like what I’m posting. I don’t see how an event about Science does not fit my blog.

The Science March is important. The USA is the 2nd highest producer of Greenhouse gases, and the President doesn’t believe in climate change. His decisions will effect every person on Earth.

Trump’s government is also planning massive cuts to Science; Medicine, Environmental Monitoring, Climate Change, etc.

As a Canadian who grew up when our Prime Minister (Stephen Harper) muzzled, censored and defunded Science for a decade, I want to do all I can to prevent the same from happening to my neighbours.

I’m not sorry. I’m going to continue posting about the Science March.

Deal with it.

16/3/17 I just came out of a mock exam for cultural geography. I think it went as well as I expected it to to be honest. I didn’t get as much revision in as I would ave liked, because I was at the quidditch tournament and then over Monday and Tuesday, it was like… though the sun was out there was this black shaft of shadow that surrounded me? I don’t know. For those two days it felt like the only emotion I had was sadness, for no apparent reason. At first I put it down to being drained from the tournament, but I had a lot of sleep and I was eating… who knows. I think it just sort of happens to people. So I took these pictures yesterday when my boyfriend and I went to one of our favourite cafes to do some revision for todays mock and for him to do his computer sciencey stuff, and then I went into papersmiths and there was a dog!!! So I felt a lot better yesterday, and I feel pretty good today. I’m about to do some catch up for my physical lectures, because my emotions at the beginning of this week held me back from going to some. I hope everyone’s having a better time of it than I have recently. It sort of like, I only feel in extremes right now… I dont know. Love you all thank’s for keeping me motivated to work when I’m like this. xxx emily

anonymous asked:

What if aliens are even more confused about bicycles than we are? Like, we aren't entirely sure how they work but we just kind of brush that aside and use them anyways, while aliens are running around panicking b/c "holy crap humans are using something that they don't even know how it works but it does and we don't know how it works either what the hell" and they try to study it and they come back with nothing better than "it shouldn't work"

Why would you do this to me? Because now I can’t figure out if the bicycle thing is serious or not and most of what I find online says we do understand, i think, but I can’t tell and I found this which looks like a good discussion but the problem is I never took physics, I took chemistry instead which is not at all useful in situations like this (and, granted, most situations, but possibly also because it was literally my worst subject of all time) and while I am a fairly intelligent person I start seeing all these sciencey physicsy words and it’s like trying to read Japanese katakana–I can sorta understand them separately if I try really hard but mostly they’re strings of characters taunting me and my lack of knowledge that I feel I should know.

So I had a teacher once who made us do a presentation on some sciencey stuff, can’t remember what it was. Anyways, she’s going over the rules. You have to do it alone, and if you’re not loud/confident enough you get marked down. Me being the super shy nervous awkward girl that I am asked if I could just turn in the PowerPoint or something because I didn’t think I could present the way she wanted me to. This lady told me to “get over it, I know you’re just trying to get out of doing it.” I had to present and long story short I was super nervous and got a letter grade off for it.

Reblog if you post about the following

• Carry on
• Harry Potter
• voltron
• eyewitness • HIMYM
• Music (generally indie I guess)
• Dan and Phil
• aesthetics
• sciencey cool stuff
• The maze runner
• The hunger games
• studyblr content (particularly a levels)

And I’ll check out your blog! I realised I follow barely anyone and my dash is so slow so I really need new people to follow!! (Side note: I know this is a mess don’t judge)
