Just look at that smile!
I think I might I’ve read all Pacific Rim related post on internet and this quote give me so many feels. Guillermo del toro is such a great guy. I should start to work on real life, but Pacific Rim is way much better.
I feel like we need a lot more of this in media. Because it’s true, that’s why.
I’m almost done with EMT school, and I can verify this 100%. We don’t give a shit what you’ve taken or how illegal it may be. We want to know what and how much so we can save your ass. Unless its directly related to a crime scene in some way, we don’t tell.
It makes me enraged and also deeply saddened that the police state has become so entwined with every aspect of our lives that people are afraid to tell the truth to people trying to render them with emergency care. We’ve broken ourselves.
Boost because everyone should know!!!
I love passionate people
that light that enters their eyes when they start talking about something they love
the little arm gestures they make
the massive smile that slips onto their face when they realise someone’s listening
I just love passionate, enthusiastic people and I wish more people would be like that
a lot of people are like that but sadly usually when they start talking passionately the responder doesn’t respond accordingly so then the speaker holds back

A Grander Canyon
Last Friday, a rare and beautiful thing happened in Arizona’s Grand Canyon. It filled with fog. We’re used to seeing clouds above the Grand Canyon…
…not IN it. This cottony ocean was caused by a meteorological phenomenon called a temperature inversion.
A temperature inversion is when the normally warm layer of air near the Earth’s surface, normally heated by convection currents from the sun-baked land beneath it, is replaced by a colder air mass. This can happen when a warm front flows over the top of a cooler one, often in winter months.
Although the desert air in Arizona is pretty arid, as the cool atmosphere poured into the canyon, what little water there was condensed into clouds, flowing like waterfalls and filling the mighty canyon with a billowing ocean.

Why do magnets fall more slowly through a copper tube?
When you move a magnet past a metal plate or through a copper tube you generate a current*.
If we drop a non-magnetic piece of metal down the copper tube it is unaffected, but the in the case of the magnet it aligns it’s self with the tube generating current.
This is also how you convert mechanical energy into electrical energy as one might charge their headlight on their bike. But why is it moving more slowly?
The current it’s self generates magnetic fields which oppose the magnetic field generated by the magnet impeding it’s movement.
The key is in explaining that the law* runs both ways; current generates magnetic fields, and magnetic fields generate current.
*This is known as Lenz’s law.
Ladybeetle larvae are one of my favourite insects ever! Just love the way they look, they’re so small yet so complex and beautiful… and they’re carnivorous which is cool!
