go all out in romance and let the chips fall where they may
going with the flow is soothing but risky
good deeds eventually are rewarded
government is a burden on the people
grass roots agitation is the only hope
guilt and self-laceration are indulgences”

The Believing Neuron pt. 1/17 | Things you wouldnt believe you can achieve

/architecture students special\

ok.  speaking from experience, you all wannabes try to thrive through everything so your NEXT presentation concept would be unique -

Something like that is nice to try but you should know the way how first..

  ..i guess!!

Minion friendly FG a.t.m

HMMM

”get out. of your knowledge surroundings!”Le.FG

ex.1

There is a blind guy who can ride his bike in traffic

echotastic

he’s figured out to use echolocation by clicking his tongue and listening to the echoes. He can tell a building from as far as 1000 feet away, differentiate specific kinds of cars, explore the wilderness by himself, and generally do all kinds of crazy shit.

..weird huh?

ex.2

Pointer-finger to Ring-finger ratio

right point index finger

In men and boys, the right pointer finger is shorter in relation to their right ring finger than it is in girls. The higher your testosterone level before birth, the lower your pointer-finger-to-ring-finger ratio. Men with the lowest ratios made the most money and stayed in business for the longest time.

..hmm this one was for balance. forwarding the next one-

ex.3 (best!)

You live in the past.

you live in the past

About 80 milliseconds in the past, to be precise. Use one hand to touch your nose, and the other to touch one of your feet, at exactly the same time. You will experience them as simultaneous acts. But that’s mysterious — clearly it takes more time for the signal to travel up your nerves from your feet to your brain than from your nose. The reconciliation is simple: our conscious experience takes time to assemble, and your brain waits for all the relevant input before it experiences the “now.” Experiments have shown that the lag between things happening and us experiencing them is about 80 milliseconds.

80milsec. ahead of being in front

Epic Fails – Whaat a Save!

thats a clear example of architecture thats never gonna  fail! . WELL DONE to the inspired architect\constructor that told to himself .

”if so. yeah. an opportunity of worldwide status significance for me. lets do it!”

all that said due to the X-MAS tree style skyscraper – that may have been vacant for many years. but were sure throws the best New Year after-parties in NK.

Well done to the whole structure idea that once a year has its glory and can never be confirmed as a FAIL.

good job.

Spare Knowledge \\ HAWT sauce on Black Holes

Lets say we LIKE the cosmos theory and we EVEN MORE adore the experimental predictions of artistic scopes taken . Aggro-style Thursday from the block — yOu arch minionz love evolving through that stuff from the FG.   .gogogo.

Smash It Up

Here Come The Warm Jets

Combining observations done with ESO’s Very Large Telescope and NASA’s Chandra X-ray telescope, astronomers have uncovered the most powerful pair of jets ever seen from a stellar black hole. The black hole blows a huge bubble of hot gas, 1000 light-years

Radio Waves

This artist’s concept shows a galaxy with a supermassive black hole at its core. The black hole is shooting out jets of radio waves. New research led by theoretical astrophysicist David Garofalo of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California

Eat to the Beat

Artist’s schematic impression of the distortion of space-time by a supermassive black hole at the center of a galaxy. The black hole will swallow dark matter at a rate which depends on its mass and on the amount of dark matter around it.

Beware of the Blob

This illustration shows what one of the galaxies inside a blob might look like, with the spiral arms of the galaxy in yellow and white, and two-sided outflow powered by the supermassive black hole buried inside shown in bright yellow.

first art syncronicity photograph

“Dali Atomicus” by Philippe Halsman.

This photograph was shot live.  It took 26 attempts, & over five  hours to get it to look like this.  Halsman would count, & on  ‘four’, Salvador Dali would leap in the air, three assistants would  throw cats, one other assistant would chuck the bucket of water, &  Halsman’s wife would hold the chair as Halsman took the picture.

first greatest sports photograph

Neil Leifer’s iconic photo of Muhammad Ali’s knockout of Cleveland Williams in 1966.

first hug for science photograph

A photograph from the October 1927 Fifth Solvay International Conference, where the world’s most notable physicists met to discuss the newly formulated quantum theory. The leading figures were Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr. Einstein, not completely convinced with Heisenberg’s “Uncertainty Principle,” said “God does not play dice.” Bohr replied, “Einstein, stop telling God what to do.”

furthest earth photograph

Pale Blue Dot is a photograph of planet Earth taken from a record distance of 3.7 billion miles, at the edge of our solar system.

Earth is the blue dot that can be seen at the middle of the picture seeing right

..still remains the Earth’s most distant photograph.

first “OWNED” photograph

Muybridge’s The Horse in Motion, 1878

In 1872, the former governor of California Leland Stanford, a businessman and race-horse owner, hired Muybridge for some photographic studies. He had taken a position on a popularly debated question of the day — whether all four feet of a horse were off the ground at the same time while trotting.

Muybridge settled Stanford’s question with a single photographic negative showing his Standardbred trotting horse Occident airborne at the trot.

hopefully more to come on that topic ;)

TRU STORY

Bridge Genealogy \\ Meghalayas Living Bridge

In the wettest region of the world , Meghalaya India – even if it sounds impossible – people build bridges for generations using the roots of trees on each side of the river

because of the high vegetation due to the rainfalls , those roots may form even 30 meters surface and withstand an average amount of people crossing at the same time.

The extracurricular that you can notice of  people living in Meghalaya for generations, is the passion for transmitting this knowledge of nature – to the youngest ones in order to continue through the years this – owned by them- tradition.
