the internet is fucking incredible. i can keep up with current events and stay in contact with old friends at the click of a button. fascinating. i’ve been watching porn for seven hours.
people who hate frozen are people who never watched the movie
today I saw a preteen girl pick up Mean Girls at Target and ask her friend what it was. She didn’t even know. She said it sounded dumb. The people are forgetting. The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it.
I’m glad the portrait of Ben Franklin stayed the same on the new $100 bill. There’s something about his slight, tight frown, the paternal hint of disappointment in his eyes and those pursed, sealed lips that seem to say, “I don’t approve of what you’re doing, but I can’t stop you from rolling this banknote into a straw and ripping a fat rail of white lightning in the Buffalo Wild Wings handicapped bathroom stall, you goddamn beautiful disaster.”
This is Electrical Treeing. Or a Lichtenberg Figure.
If you have an insulating material, it doesn’t conduct very well. But, you can force it to with absurd amounts of electrical fields. Then in the material, changes and defects cause huge localised electric fields, creating a plasma in the insulator and damaging it. Seriously electricity is terrifying.
Oh, you know what else is a good insulator? Skin. After lightning strikes people have developed these patterns on their skin as the electric field bursts capillaries. Making them the coolest scars in history.
Man this series makes no fucking sense
Me when I see a hot guy!…. Or dessert
