Just reminding everyone that Streetlight Manifesto is an amazing band and I love them.

This has been a PSA.

Cis people care more about the classification a dwarf planet they’re never going to actually see more than the recognition of trans people’s genders even though they are almost guaranteed to see trans people in their lives (even if they don’t realise it). Like, great, thanks for reminding me that the lives of real people like me matter less to you than a hunk of rock and ice on the edge of the solar system.

On 9th March 2008, historians have found what they believe is the first recording of a human voice. Predating Thomas Edison’s first phonograph recording of 1877. The “phonautograph”, created by etching soot-covered paper by Parisian inventor Edouard-Leon Scott de Martinville, was played by US scientists using a “virtual stylus” to read the lines. The recording was initially believed to be the voice of a woman or adolescent, but further research in 2009 suggested the playback speed had been too high and that it was actually the voice of Scott himself. This is the original recording.

QnA Stuffs, Nation! (X)

OK, Phil…SciShow is here for you. Technically, we can’t see water either, unless we’re looking through a bunch of it. But your average glass of water, you aren’t seeing the water in there, you’re seeing two effects:

1. The surface where the water and the air meet (or the water and the glass). That surface can reflect light. Fish can see the surface of the water as well (it looks different from below, but it’s still visible.) But you can’t really see the water. Also, when water is on a person and they’re all shiny, that’s just because the water on them is all surface and you’re seeing all that surface.

2. The difference in the index of refraction between water and air. Light moves at different angles through different materials. So when you see water, especially in a glass, you’ll see it bending the light differently than air bends light. Fish would not see this, in the same way we don’t notice the index of refraction of air.

However, they DO see AIR in the same way WE see WATER! They would see the surface between the two and they would notice the difference in refraction between the two substances and note that “air” is a thing that they can see just like we imagine water as something we can see. Bubbles, y’know…

Now, there are two other things you might think. One, that you can see water because there’s stuff in it…but that’s just seeing the stuff…like you wouldn’t say you could see air just because there’s smoke or a cloud…you’re just seeing stuff IN the air. 

And last…water actually does absorb light, so if you look through a lot of it, you /can/ see it. However, this is also true of air, it’s just that air absorbs less light (much less, if there’s no water vapor in it.) So, in the same way that we can see air if we’re looking through enough of it (a very far away mountain will appear diluted and blue) fish would also be able to see water.



It can wait.

next time someone is mean to you just tell em this
