Hello and Welcome

sixpenceee:

Anatoli Bugorski might be the luckiest scientist of all time.

While poking around the machine, Bugorski stuck his head inside the accelerator and straight into the path of a proton beam.

As it coursed through his skull, the proton beam burned a hole through Bugorski’s brain. While it was painless, he said he was blinded by a flash “brighter than a thousand suns.”

After staggering away from the machine, the left side of his face swelled to enormous proportions. Later, the skin near the entry and exit wounds peeled away, and Bugorski lost hearing in his left ear. However, this Soviet survived his mind-blowing experience, perhaps because the proton beam was moving at nearly the speed of light.

Despite his good luck, Bugorski eventually lost every nerve in the left side of his face becoming partially paralyzed. The proton beam also damaged Bugorski’s mental capabilities, though not as badly as you might expect. Despite his handicap, Bugorski earned a PhD and is still alive today, proving that it takes a lot more than a proton beam to kill a Russian.

I wouldn’t say luckiest, considering the whole “hit with a deadly beam to the face” thing, but still interesting

“I met my wife at a Star Trek convention. She was study abroad from France and spoke little English, and I didn’t know a lick of French. So, for the first few months of our relationship, we communicated by speaking Klingon.”

Okay I’m not even a Star Trek fan but that’s beautiful.

NO BUT YOU ALL NEED TO UNDERSTAND HOW FUNNY THIS IS THEYRE LITERALLY FILLING A ROBOT WITH BULLETS, LIKE BULLETS THAT YOU FIRE FROM A GUN. NOW NORMALLY FIRING A GUN TRIGGERS THE BULLET TO EXPLODE CREATING A PRESSURE THAT CAUSES THE TIP OF THE BULLET TO BE FORCED OUT OF THE BARREL AT A HIGH SPEED. 

WHaT CAVE JOHNSON’S TURRET’S DO IS LOAD A TON OF FUCKING BULLETS INTO THE CASE OF THE SENTRY LIKE IT”S A GODDAMN GUMBALL MACHINE AND THEN USE A FUcKIN SPRING LOADED PISTON TO FIRE IT THAT IS SO UNNECESSARY AND INEFFECTIVE LIKE NO WONDER CHELL CAN RESIST SO MANY BULLETS THE LIKELIHOOD ITD CAUSE ANYTHING MORE THAN A BAD BRUISE IS LIKE ONE IN A HUNDRED

Photographer Lassi Rautiainen recently captured the profound partnership between a she-wolf and a brown bear in the wilds of northern Finland. For days, he witnessed the strange pair meet every evening to share food after a hard day of hunting. No one knows when or how this relationship was formed, “but it is certain that by now each of them needs the other.”

the-unpopular-opinions:

I really do not see the point of these petitions. The one above is just an example. I’m not against the petition or anything but when will people learn that these never ever work. 
Tumblr uses the petitions way to much for every little thing. If you want to make a difference in the world, get the fuck up and go do something. A online petition is going to do absolutely nothing, especially because it’s just a bunch of teenagers and young adults signing it.
Have a problem? Make a fucking petition! No! It doesn’t work that way. Every week there is a new petition like the one above, or it could be some new internet policy or whatever and whether they reach their goal or not, nothing happens.
The petitions are completely stupid and I wish people would stop using for stupid fucking crap. Also, if you reached your goal and it didn’t work, don’t make another one. That just shows that nobody cares and you’re wasting your time.
Please somebody explain to me what you expect from these petitions and if you actually gain anything.
This petition just reached it’s goal. Let’s watch people. Watch as nothing happens. Then next week you will see the another petition asking the same thing and for people to sign again because the first two didn’t work.
