those are mysteries

Dunno if i should do more of those…

One week until the con! Chibis for stickers. I had to adapt my chibi style heavily since my usual kind of half chibi-ish style doesn’t fit small stickers. So this will have to do.

Harvard scientists say alien space travel may cause those mysterious fast radio bursts

  • Researchers at Harvard and the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics are investigating whether fast radio bursts — radio emissions from unidentified sources in space that are very strong and last less than five milliseconds — emanate from “extragalactic civilizations.”
  • So if there are in fact aliens generating spurts of radio activity from a structure with twice the diameter of the Earth, as the research proposes, the question remains: Why?
  • The researchers first note that there is a possibility they are broadcasting beacons to inform of their presence, whether it’s a cry for help or a way to tout their technological achievements.
  • But this explanation is “rather implausible” due to how much energy needs to be expended to send the fast radio bursts, so the researchers explore an alternate explanation — that these extragalactic beings are using FRBs to power light sails. Read more (3/10/17 10:46 AM)

I didn’t like it when Domen was winning and I couldn’t enjoy it with him, because I was angry at myself. I feel quilty now, but I was very happy for him. He was strong and he enjoyed every moment, and all we could do was admire him.

WRITE MORE STUFF ABOUT CRYPTID HUNTER!KEITH AND GHOST HUNTER!LANCE PLS PLS

oh Boy ur wish is my command anon here are some more notes i have on this AU

  • Hunk, Pidge, Lance, and Keith all go to the same school.
    • Coran is their adoring principal, Shiro and Allura are teachers
    • Lance and Keith try to start a Ghost Club and Cryptid Club at school respectively 
    • Hunk helps Lance with Ghost Club and Pidge helps out with the Cryptid Club
    • Allura is set to be the GC sponsor, Shiro is supposed to be the CC’s
    • surprise turns out that every club has to have at least 4 members to actually be considered a real club
    • cue the long hard road to getting Lance and Keith to join their clubs together for the sake of the greater good and creating the VOLTRON club. 
      • Nobody could actually decide on what to call the new supernatural mystery hunter club so they just name it after everyone’s mutual favorite comic book and call it a day.
    • Coran lets them use them old storehouse on the edge of school property as a clubroom/base because he’s great like that. Allura sneaks them all keys so they can use it after school hours.
  • Lance has a strong sense for the supernatural and can see ghosts better than most, which is part of the reason he started hunting them down in the first place
    • another reason is that it’s part of his family history, his mom and grandmother did the same thing
    • his mother disappeared when he was young, his grandmother taught him everything he knows about the supernatural 
    • Lance is great with witchcraft, which his Grandmother also taught him. 
    • He has his mother’s grimoire, which has all kinds of info about the paranormal in it as well as spells on how to deal with spirits and whatnot.
    • Lance thinks the grimoire is the key to figuring out his mother’s disappearance.
  • Keith hunts cryptids because it’s his only connection to his past
    • his knife is an heirloom that is supposed to be tied to the supernatural somehow, but Keith hasn’t figured out what it’s for yet
    • he says he investigates cryptids to try and understand the knife
    • but really he just thinks cryptids are damn cool and would probably investigate them regardless
  • Keith has a journal he records all the information he’s learned about cryptids in
    • he also draws their pictures
    • a lot of them really suck
    • Lance, bonafide artist that he is, ends up offering his assistance (mostly just to rub it in how much better of an artist he is)
    • Keith spends a day describing what different cryptids are supposed to look like so Lance can do sketches and it becomes a Bonding Moment™
    • Lance tells Keith ghost stories while he draws.
    • Lance still thinks cryptids are fake by the end of it but the journal actually ends up looking pretty nice so Keith forgives him (not before telling him ghosts aren’t real though) 
  • After a while Keith and Lance kind of accept that both ghosts and cryptids are real but they still fight about it so often the team starts calling them Scully and Mulder
    • “Pidge, tell Keith he’s being an idiot and that there is no such thing as a chupacabra, please, his evidence sucks! There’s no proof!”
    • “Uh huh, sure thing Scully.”
    • “Hunk, Lance is going on about Blackbeard’s Pirate Ship again please tell him his Bermuda Triangle theory has like a million holes in it and I refuse to count ‘the way the wind howls’ as conclusive evidence.”
    • “Mmhmm, anything for you Mulder,”
  • Every Friday is Movie Night At The Storage Shed AKA “The Castle”
  • Pidge rigged the place to have some pretty fancy electronics, most importantly, a TV
    • Keith always wants to watch conspiracy videos ripped from the internet
    • Pidge wants to watch the X-Files or History Channel Alien Specials
    • Hunk is either How It’s Made, Chopped, or Unsolved Ancient Mysteries
      • Hunk gets really, really in to Chopped. Don’t mess with Hunk while watching Chopped.
    • Lance just wants to watch Ghostbusters, over, and over, and over
      • Lance gets banned from bringing any of the Ghostbuster movies to Hunks house after they’ve all watched each one at least 6 times

thats all the notes i’ve got as of now but boy do i love me that Cryptic/Ghost hunter Klance AU mmmHMMmmm good stuff Right There

little horizon zero dawn things:

– Aloy leans forward when riding her horse (sorry, strider) up a hill and back when riding down, like youre supposed to, despite never having ridden or even seen a real horse in her life

– the mount machines all have properly animated gaits, two-beat trot three-beat canter four-beat gallop etc

– the little smile she makes when it’s snowing or raining and she puts her hands out you complain about the rain but i know the truth

– the pine saplings near pitchcliff

– studious pallas

– the poetry inside the metal flowers

– aloy’s little comments to herself when she’s picking herbs/climbing ice/the weather changes/she slides down a hillside/etc

– if you ride right up to the cutscene trigger while tracking dervahl the game animates her dismounting and patting the strider’s side as part of the cutscene

– tallnecks, esp. how they’re totally oblivious to you scrambling all over them

– the fact that you don’t need the focus to track because the environmental clues (footprints, blood smears, cart tracks, etc) are actually there

– sylens sends you a bunch of information and then there’s about a second’s worth of pause and he just sends you the definition of corporation as if that’s the only thing that might be confusing

– those two mysterious named rabbits up above devil’s thirst seriously what’s the deal with them

– the really gorgeous sunsets

– the crouch idle where she rocks back so it looks like she’s sitting

– going back to visit Rost and you actually can tell him about your journeys (i cried SO hard)

– npcs comment on what you’re wearing

– the little surprised hop-jump-look animation the watchers make when you throw a rock near them

– overridden ravagers rumbling and following you around

– the fact that overridden machines have unique animations for fighting other machines as opposed to you

– PHOTO MODE

– the sound the metal flowers make

– Aloy’s little shrug when she drops the safe through the floor

– aloy shutting down all the dudes who try to flirt with her

– seriously she’s so blunt i love it the world needs more blunt pragmatic heroines

– “it’s a door”

– the hair physics and the way the sun catches in the edges of her hair

– big machines knock over trees when they go into forested areas and it’s terrifying

– the way the fog moves over the ground in waves

– aloy’s crooked teeth and bushy eyebrows and slightly chubby face and she’s stocky but also ripped from years of hunting like she looks like a person shes perfect

– the fact that the mount machines have the same base body but slightly different sounds and idle animations

– did i mention studious pallas? i love him he is Trying his Best

Ford Safety Week Day 7: Ford and his whole family <3

Headcanon: Ford is QUITE STRONG after 30 years surviving in other dimensions! Usually he keeps it on the down-low because he wants to let Stan still be “the strong twin,” but when it comes to being overjoyed about his family, sometimes an extreme, lift-4-people-off-the-ground-at-once group hug is required :)

Fiddleford is here because family doesn’t only mean blood relatives, and I think these are the 4 people he cares about the most <3

It’s literally 5:30 in the morning what is wrong with me .;T
